Three Yards and a Cloud of Links

Good morning Buckey Nation.

Monday Night Football: We will get to see Ohio State play against Virginia Tech in Lane Stadium on Labor Day 2015. According to they posted the story from a Virginia Tech radio station. The game will be the ACC Labor Day (night) game on ESPN. The last time the Buckeyes played on a Monday night was on August 29, 1994 against Fresno State. There might need to be some schedule shuffling needed since the game is being moved from Sept. 19th originally to Sept. 7th. Will be exciting to see.

Football Week: Speaking of our friends from they released a great video to get you in the mood for some Saturday football.

Last Exhibition Game: Buckeyes men’s soccer has conclude their exhibition season with a 1-2 record last night by dropping a close match with seventh ranked Norte Dame.

“I think the team played really well and stayed tough under constant pressure tonight,” John Bluem, Ohio State head coach, said. “Notre Dame is a very talented team and they played their first team for about 70 minutes. The final 20 minutes were pretty even as both teams substituted. Overall, I am very pleased with our effort and fight.”

Buckeyes open their season this Friday at 7:30pm at Jesse Owens Memorial Season.

OT Victory: Ohio State women’s soccer beat Eastern Michigan to go 2-0 on the season so far. The 23rd ranked Buckeyes got a goal from Ellyn Gruber in the 99th minute for the victory.

“The team showed a lot of heart which over time is difficult in the early season,” Ohio State head coach Lori Walker said. “We had a lot of opportunities and I’m pleased that we found a way to win. It wasn’t the most beautiful game we’ve ever played but we were able to get two wins in one weekend and that’s always a success.”

Academic All-Americans: Buckeyes women’s volleyball team announced 11 of their players were named NACGC/W Scholastic All-Americans for the 2012-13 school year. To be recognized for this honor, student-athletes must carry a grade-point average of 3.50 or better. The Buckeyes also finished 20 nationally with a 3.47 GPA.

That is awesome work ladies keep up the great work and representing Buckeye Nation so well.

Blue Colors Not Welcome: Zac Jackson of Fox Sports Ohio published an article about how Urban Meyer and staff will not even let scouts wear the color blue at Ohio States practice facilities. A lot of talk shows have been running with this and saying Urban has gone to far, who does he think he is, blah blah blah. One of the scouts claimed it was embarrassing and it could have been handled differently and they should have been notified.

I might be living under a rock but I thought this has been in place since at least last year and I’m sorry but if your at the Woody Hayes practice facility there should never ever be any blue worn in their. It is a facility that is named after the man who let it be know for his distaste for TTUN. What about the respecting his passion and namesake and don’t bring those colors around and besides you were given free Ohio State gear to wear I don’t get any of that.

4 Days: 4 Days till kick off so I will leave you with Number 4 intercepting a late fourth quarter pass from Gardner.

Until next time Buckeye Nation…
