In case you missed it: Our semi-regular look back at the news and noteworthy items regarding our beloved Buckeyes and the world around us. Here’s hopefully a representative list of things you might have missed since the last one:
Im done with the what ifs what’s done is done! Bama played a weak team and got a ring but just know this A SEC team WONT win next year.

PURDUE: Darrell Hazell has apparently hired Jim Bollman as his new offensive line coach. You probably have a funny joke about him looking like Joe Tiller, or that Purdue is going to be pulling their guards or something, but don’t bother. Twitter has you covered (and it’s all awful).
COMING BACK: Both Bradley Roby and Jordan Hall will join the Buckeyes for a push toward a National Championship in 2013. Hall was granted a medical redshirt and Roby decided to skip the NFL draft and come back for his senior season. Both are huge returns for Urban Meyer.
DESHAUN THOMAS, HE’S REALLY GOOD: Deshaun Thomas was awarded the Big Ten Co-Player of the Week (along with some guy named “Zeller”) after his strong performances against Purdue and Michigan.
BUCKEYES IN THE NFL: DeVier Posey scored his first touchdown in the Texans playoff loss to the Patriots and also tore his achilles tendon.
Also, Brian Rolle is getting a second chance (Steelers… Why’d it have to be Steelers?):

GET USED TO IT: Early 2013 Top 25 lists have been trickling out for a while, and once again Ohio State finds itself near the top of another, this time from Athlon Sports.
WHEN NOTRE DAME LOSES, WE ALL WIN: Especially Urban Meyer, who put a little extra scratch in his pocket finishing third in the final AP poll. Thanks, domers!
LET’S BASH OHIO STATE! Somehow, it’s Ohio State’s fault that Notre Dame laid a huge turd in the BCS title game against Alabama. At least that’s what I gather from this incoherent mess by Graham Couch. And if anyone can decipher the 11th paragraph to me, I’d be much obliged. I’m at a loss for words on that one.
LET’S TRADE: One former Buckeye (Bollman) goes to Purdue, and Ohio State gets a former Boilermaker as Devin Hill walks on at Ohio State, presumably to play fullback.
