Three Yards and a Cloud of Links

Good morning Buckeye Nation.

Big Boy Tournament: Last week Thad Matta confirmed that the Buckeyes will be playing in a tournament that will have Kentucky, UCLA, and North Carolina. This is exciting news for the Buckeyes basketball program and since it looks to be a 3 year tournament currently it will allow the incoming highly rated (still a big short) 2014 recruiting class to be a part of it and should help Matta even more recruiting wise. I know Matta has stated he doesn’t want to have a tough non conference schedule because of the B1G play but it looks as if the Buckeyes are getting more meaningful non conference games that will be prime time and that’s a huge get for the kids wanting to be on playing in prime time.

Semifinalist: Seems that missing what almost 3 games isn’t hurting Braxton Miller. It was just announced that Miller was selected as a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award. Miller is currently fourth nationally for his completion percentage and seventh in passing efficiency. Goes to show all that hard work to become a better pocket passing QB over the summer has been working. Keep up the great work Miller!!

Just Missed it: Aaron Craft was voted sixth for the preseason All American team. That’s OK don’t worry Craft you are All American to us and that’s all that counts. Lets see at the end of the season where this all shakes out and Mr. Rosy Cheeks dominates the landscape of college basketball with his shut down defense.

Until next time Buckeye Nation…


  1. I am still smarting over the fact that Aaron Craft isnt on the AA list….
