Site News

Not a lot to report on the Site News front. Jeremiah went on The Wake-up Call again to discuss the ramifications of the Carlos Hyde suspension and who needs to step up in Carlos’ absence.


The big news on the recruiting front was that Demetrius Knox became the latest addition to the 2014 recruiting class. As noted in Jeremiah’s post, “Knox brings to the OL a lot of speed and athleticism. He was once committed to Texas but decommitted months ago and right away he became a target for OSU and the fans.”

Jeremiah couldn’t help himself when Malik Hooker. I have a feeling this isn’t the last time Malik’s last name is used in a headline.

Jeremiah talked with class of 2015 Justin Hilliard. He was also able to discuss class of 2014 Chad Mavety’s recruitment. It’s a great read, as Chad is a Junior College transfer and has a unique perspective on the recruitment process.

Dylan spoke with the young WR recruit Teryn Savage. He also chatted with class of 2015 standout Eric Glover-Williams, 2014 ATH Noah Brown and class of 2015 QB Kelly Bryant.


The week was mostly football-free, the calm before the opening of camp, but we did get the “good” news that Carlos Hyde would not be charged with any crime stemming from his incident at a club earlier this month. The surveillance video was inconclusive at best, but it still appears that Carlos did at least attempt to retaliate after being swiped at by a girl.

I say “good” news because this should have never been a situation that Carlos was in in the first place and he will still suffer through at least a three-game suspension.

In non-Carlos Hyde coverage, Josh too a look at the Buckeye’s non-conference schedule. While not as strong as it has been in the past, a couple of these non-conference games are no gimmes.


Chris K looked at the incoming freshman to Thad Matta’s 2013-14 basketball class and they both look like they are going to have an impact immediately.

We haven’t covered women’s basketball much around these parts, but Shannon has a look at the new coach and what he’s bringing to the table.

Coming up

We’ve got more interviews, more of the top B1G football players, and we’ll begin our deep dive into previewing the team that Ohio State will be fielding this season, including some new formation looks on the defensive side of the ball.
