Buckeyes' secondary looks strong | 10 days and counting
1726
On today's show, Matt Baxendell joins Dave Biddle to discuss the following: ** With the Notre Dame game just 10 days away, Ohio State is back at full strength at cornerback. What are expectations from this group? Overall, the Buckeyes appear to have a very strong secondary. ** Cam Martinez is the backup slot safety behind Tanner McCalister, but Martinez is also repping some at corner to add depth there. ** The Buckeyes are extremely deep at safety. The starters will be McCalister, Ronnie Hickman (adjuster) and Josh Proctor (bandit). The top backups will be Martinez, Lathan Ransom and Kourt Williams. ** Jim Knowles doesn't like to rotate too much in the secondary, but he seems very high on Ransom and Williams. They will play. Ransom being healthy is pretty amazing. He suffered the same injury Proctor did (broken leg) but Proctor suffered his in the second game last season. Ransom suffered his in the Rose Bowl earlier this calendar year. Ransom said he did not return home to Arizona this year and instead remained in Columbus to rehab with with OSU’s athletic training staff. ** Secondary/corners coach Tim Walton and safeties coach Perry Eliano are impressive. Not much chatter about them because all the talk has been about Knowles. We're guilty as charged. But Walton and Eliano deserve some love too. ** Knowles says 75% of the defense has been installed, and he’s happy with it. Says OSU's defense is further along than he anticipated. ** What are thoughts on the Notre Dame matchup? Is Bax confident? Why or why not? All of that and more is coming your way on the Wednesday 5ish.

Buckeyes favored by 15.5 over ND | Sound about right? | Thoughts on matchup?

The 12 Days of Christmas are fine. But the 12 Days Until Buckeye Football? Now that's really where it's at. And yes, friends, we are merely 12 days away from Ohio State kicking off its 2022 season against visiting Notre Dame. Dave Biddle flies solo on today's show and gives his outlook on the OSU-ND clash, plus: * The Buckeyes are favored by 15.5 points over the Fighting Irish. Does that sound about right? * The over/under is very interesting at 58.5. We give some friendly advice there to anyone who dabbles in sports betting. * Camp is winding down for the Buckeyes. The media will interview head coach Ryan Day and defensive coordinator Jim Knowles today. That will be interesting for sure. * Who will end up being the best defensive linemen this season for Ohio State? Could it be the four second-year players? * We haven't talked a lot about special teams. Let's change that. How will Emeka Egbuka do as the kickoff returner? Will Jaxon Smith-Njigba still be the primary punt returner? Might they rotate to some degree and also use Egbuka back there? * It is the 100-year anniversary of Ohio Stadium and the 20-year anniversary of the 2002 national championship. Jim Tressel completely flipped the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry on its head and won a national title in his second season. We're big Tressel "Stans" around here. All of that and more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish.

Putting on the line ... and the linebackers
2021
Ohio State has an excellent roster overall entering the 2022 season. However, there are some possible question marks, such as depth on the offensive line, and the overall talent at linebacker. The Buckeyes' season could rest on how the O-line and LBs play. The good news for OSU is there is reason for optimism regarding both units, and that's one of the many things Dave Biddle discusses on today's show. Specifically, how does the second-team offensive line look and could any of those guys be good starters if one of the current starters goes down with an injury? At linebacker, defensive coordinator Jim Knowles said on Tuesday that fourth-year juniors Steele Chambers and Tommy Eichenberg have "solidified things at linebacker" for the Buckeyes. He also had nice things to say about Cody Simon, Teradja Mitchell, Chip Trayanum and C.J. Hicks. One thing that is not being talked about enough is OSU's lack of depth at cornerback. They only have six scholarship corners on the roster (not counting kicker/corner Jake Seibert) and Knowles revealed on Tuesday that the Buckeyes are a bit banged up at the position. One of the players who was working on the side was sophomore Jordan Hancock, who has a lot of buzz as a possible breakout player for OSU this year. True freshman Jyaire Brown is having a very good camp thus far and lost his black stripe on Tuesday. He will definitely play this season, the only question is how much. It could be more than anyone expected. To add some depth at cornerback, safeties Jantzen Dunn and Cameron Martinez repped at corner on Tuesday. So, that helps mitigate the situation. The Buckeyes have plenty of depth at safety, just like they do at linebacker and on the defensive line. All of that and more is coming your way on the Wednesday 5ish.

Florida gonna Florida | 247Sports expert Ivins on Ohio State in Sunshine State
2505
Ohio State has five Class of 2023 commitments from Florida ... currently. In the Class of 2024, the Buckeyes have offered 19 Floridians - most of any state (just 5 in Ohio). But we all know Florida is its own animal when it comes to recruiting. Well, we brought in the best today - 247Sports Southeast Recruiting Analyst Andrew Ivins - to dive deep on all things Florida recruiting. The Fort Lauderdale-based info machine knows these recruits better than anyone in the business, which is readily apparent. We hit all the names - Dijon Johnson, Carnell Tate, Brandon Inniss, Bryson Rodgers, Cedrick Hawkins, Mark Fletcher, Jeremiah Smith, Stacy Gage, Charles Lester, JoJo Trader and we even delved into some Georgia standouts (Jelani Thurman and Kayin Lee). Ivins also waxes poetic on why Florida recruits are different from all the others and it's not the last visit but the last commitment you want.  Spend 5ish with us this a.m., 'Nutters!

Back to the Glenville pipeline | Dijon back in the fold? | Vibes from first week of practice
1447
For the first time since Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State has landed a Cleveland Glenville prospect. Four-star linebacker Arvell Reese selected the Buckeyes over the weekend, and Steve Helwagen joins Dave Biddle to discuss that, plus: * Is 4-star cornerback Dijon Johnson going to recommit to Ohio State? There is some smoke that it could happen, including from heavy hitters such as the Dean (Bill Kurelic) and the Fong (Steve Wiltfong). * What are our main takeaways from the first week of preseason camp for OSU? Who will be the top linebackers for the Buckeyes? * Chris Holtmann is crushing it on the recruiting trail. On Sunday, the Buckeyes landed 4-star forward Scotty Middleton, a few days after sealing a commitment from 4-star forward Devin Royal. The Buckeyes now have the No. 3 class in the country for 2023, a year after signing the No. 8 class in the land. The only two programs ahead of Ohio State in the 2023 class? Duke and Kentucky.

What would qualify as a good defense for Ohio State this year?
1178
Ohio State's defense was bad last year. And the year before that. We're confident it will not be bad this season. But can it be good? And what exactly constitutes a "good" collegiate defense? Top-30 nationally? Better? The Buckeyes will have an elite offense, so if they can be good defensively, they are going to be a big problem for their opponents. Can new defensive coordinator Jim Knowles get OSU to that point?

1320
High 4-star defensive lineman Jason Moore committed to Ohio State on Sunday, vaulting the Buckeyes back over Notre Dame for the No. 1 spot in the 247Sports Composite national recruiting rankings for 2023.

Is defensive line recruiting beginning to pick up for Larry Johnson and Ohio State in the 2023 class?

Ohio State is also the favorite to eventually land 4-star defensive end Desmond Umeozulu. Furthermore, high 4-star defensive tackle John Walker could very well be a Buckeye in the end. Jonah Booker joins Dave Biddle for the Friday 5ish to discuss all of that, plus OSU likely landing 3-star offensive tackle Miles Walker later today, where things stand overall for Justin Frye and the Buckeyes on the O-line recruiting front, what might be next in the world of conference expansion and much more.

ND staying independent? Expectations for Tuimoloau, Harrison
1811
It felt like Notre Dame was on the verge of joining the Big Ten. However, multiple reports surfaced on Tuesday evening that the Fighting Irish are planning on staying put as an independent? Why would they turn this much money down? (Likely $100 million per season for each Big Ten institution via TV deals.) What is their end game? To stay independent, or perhaps join the SEC down the road if need be?

And if they add four more programs, who are the most-likely candidates?

Hartline's excellent adventure | What's next in recruiting for Buckeyes?
1446
Oh what a week it was for Ohio State and Brian Hartline last week as the Buckeyes landed a trio of highly-rated wide receivers in consecutive days. First it was 5-star Carnell Tate (the nation's No. 3 WR per the 247Sports Composite), then it was 5-star Brandon Inniss (No. 2 WR) and wrapping up the three-day odyssey was high 4-star Noah Rogers (No. 9 WR). That's a total of 14 stars in three days. Not too shabby. Hartline continues to prove he is the best recruiter in the country among all position coaches, and he spoke to NFL Network over the weekend about his recruiting philosophy. We will touch on that on today's show as well. But what about defensive recruiting, you ask? Today's show will also take a look at a trio of 4-star defensive recruits who took official visits to Ohio State this past weekend. They include cornerback Kayin Lee, defensive tackle John Walker and DT/DE Darron Reed. The good news for the Buckeyes regarding each of them? The Dean of Ohio State Football Recruiting, Bill Kurelic, has put in a Crystal Ball for OSU to land them. Doesn't mean the fight is over for any of them -- it's not -- but it's trending very well for the Scarlet & Gray. All of that and more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish as Dave Biddle flies solo.

First and foremost, it's because OSU is elite, and has the best uniform/helmet combination in college football. Notice how Alabama never wears alternate uniforms? Also on the agenda: * What can fans expect from the Buckeyes' linebackers in 2022? * Who will be OSU's captains this season? * What sports are good to watch in the summertime as we wait for football season? * Could Ohio State be overconfident heading in the Notre Dame game?

The Buckeyes' $13M plan
1319
Ohio State head coach Ryan Day met with roughly 100 members of the Columbus business community on Thursday to discuss NIL and what the Buckeyes need to keep up with the arms race. What they need, according to Day, is $13 million per year just to keep the roster in tact and prevent players from transferring to other programs. That's right, the $13M figure doesn't even include recruiting. It's just for the current roster. Steve Helwagen joins Dave Biddle to give his thoughts on that, the OSU-Penn State game not being a white out for a change, and whether Marvin Harrison Jr. will go over or under 1,200 receiving yards this season.

Steve Helwagen joins Dave Biddle to discuss that, plus: ** Thoughts on Ryan Day's contract extension and raise. ** How many national titles does Steve think Day will win over the next few years?

Saban/Jimbo are playing the feud | Which true frosh can help Buckeyes this year?
1392
Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher unloaded on Alabama coach Nick Saban on Thursday and his comments took the college football world by storm. Is the Morning 5 here for it? You had better believe it. Jonah Booker joins Dave Biddle to talk a lot about the Fisher-Saban feud, including of course the hilarity of it, but also whether both men were actually speaking the truth. Bottom line? If you like dramatic movies or soap operas, your favorite one pales in comparison to what we saw yesterday. Also on the docket, which true freshmen can help Ohio State this season? There won't be nearly as many true frosh that play in 2022 compared to 2021, but a few will need to round out the two deep and perhaps step up if injuries arise. Who are 10 true freshmen in particular that we feel will not redshirt and will at least be able to contribute to the Buckeyes' championship-winning efforts this fall? We break it all down.

Johnson and Jayden Ballard the two fastest players on the Buckeyes' team? * Kicker Noah Ruggles is coming back which is great news for OSU. * The bad news after speaking with head coach Ryan Day on Friday is defensive end Mitchell Melton is out for the season with a torn ACL, and running back Marcus Crowley is retiring from football after another serious knee injury.

C.J. Hicks, Jordan Hancock on rise for Buckeyes? Other takeaways from Saturday's scrimmage
1216
Ohio State held its Student Appreciation Day practice on Saturday and we were able to learn a lot of interesting information. Two young players that are rising up the depth chart are true freshman linebacker C.J. Hicks and sophomore cornerback Jordan Hancock. What else stood out at the practice, most especially during the scrimmage portion? And can the Buckeyes' offense be even better this season? They were ranked No. 1 in the country last year in total offense and scoring offense. But they did struggle in one particular area. Dave Biddle flies solo on this edition of the Monday 5ish to discuss all of that and more.

Basketball season is over for Ohio State and spring football practice resumes this week for the Buckeyes. What does Chris Holtmann need to accomplish in 2022-23 in order to get the fans on his side? On the football front, this will be the week when the Buckeyes start implementing schematic changes on both sides of the ball; mostly on defense of course.

The Buckeyes received a No. 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will play 10th-seeded Loyola-Chicago in the first round on Friday at 12:15 p.m. ET. Is it a difficult matchup for OSU? Yes. But that would have been the case when facing any of the 10 seeds in this year's Big Dance. Also: * Why are the Buckeyes such a poor defensive basketball team? * Does Patrick think Kyle Young and Zed Key will play against the Ramblers? * What were the big takeaways from the first week of spring football? * Will the Buckeyes' offensive line be better this season?

After JSN, who is Buckeyes' best WR? | Hoops squad in freefall mode
1267
There is much to discuss on the Ohio State football front as Jonah Booker joins Dave Biddle for his usual Friday visit. The Buckeyes kicked off spring ball this week and much was gleaned. * Unfortunately, we have to start with some bad news as offensive lineman Harry Miller announced on Thursday he is retiring from football. Miller revealed he has been battling depression and had suicidal thoughts. We obviously wish the young man nothing but the best. He is an excellent person who does a lot of charity work, and we just hope he is able to get his mental health where it needs to be. * On Thursday, the media interviewed Ohio State's running backs and wide receivers. Regarding the WRs, other than Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who is the best wideout on the squad? Is it Marvin Harrison Jr., Emeka Egbuka or Julian Fleming? * How excited are we about the RB tandem of TreVeyon Henderson and Miyan Williams? Hint: extremely. Also, Henderson made headlines yesterday when he let it slip that he played with a concussion during the 2021 season. JBook is perplexed why Henderson would say that to the media. * How excited are we about OSU's men's basketball team? Hint: not at all. The Buckeyes have managed to suffer recent losses against the likes of Maryland, Nebraska, Michigan ... and now Penn State in the Big Ten Tournament last night. Talk about a freefall at the worst possible time. They'll still make the NCAA Tournament, but they might be a No. 9 seed and could easily be one-and-done for the second consecutive year.

In addition, the media interviewed head coach Ryan Day, defensive coordinator Jim Knowles and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson following practice.

Many are presuming he will be the hybrid OLB/DE in Knowles' scheme. Is that a safe assumption? * Ohio State's basketball team lost to visiting Michigan in the regular-season finale yesterday.

UM loss fueling Buckeyes' offseason | Day follows gut with defense | Olave is fast | L for the Izzo
1430
It is a jam-packed Friday version of the show as Jonah Booker drops by for his usual end-of-week visit. Most of the show is dedicated to Ohio State football and we end with a taste of Buckeye basketball. On the agenda: * Ryan Day said this week that the Buckeyes' loss to Michigan continues to fuel his team during the offseason. * Day also said he knew in his gut that he needed to make a change defensively after the Alabama game in the 2020 national championship contest. The Oregon game confirmed it. And now Day has his man in Jim Knowles.  * Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson are fast. Faster that most people expected when they ran the 40 at the NFL Combine yesterday. * The up-and-down season continues for OSU's hoops team. And "big ups" to them for their 80-69 win over visiting Michigan State and the legendary Tom Izzo last night. Izzo took a shot at Ohio State's fans and the environment at the Schott after the game. He wasn't wrong, but was it his place to say it? All of that and more is coming your way on the Friday 5ish.

State of the Ohio State Basketball Program Address
1330
There's bad losses. And then there is ... whatever the hell happened to Ohio State's basketball team last night. The Buckeyes -- who were 15-point favorites and had a win probability of 95.5 percent -- were beaten by Big Ten cellar dweller Nebraska 78-70 at the Schott. And that came on the heels of OSU's upset loss at Maryland on Sunday when the Terrapins dominated to the tune of 75-60. We can all be prisoners of the moment at times and overreact, especially when it involves our sports teams. However, this is year No. 5 of the Chris Holtmann era at Ohio State. The Buckeyes are 18-9 overall and 11-7 in Big Ten play, and they are a lock to make the NCAA Tournament. But should the program be further ahead at this point? It's time for the State of the Ohio State Basketball Program Address. Patrick Murphy joins Dave Biddle for that, plus some quick thoughts on spring football opening for the Buckeyes on Tuesday.

1012
The media will meet with Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith today at 11:30 a.m. There are a number of things Bucknuts is curious to ask Smith, but at the top of the list is what to do about players being able to profit off of their name, image and likeness in college athletics.

Duane on LB prospect: 'My lord' | Targeting defensive tackle, safety
914
This is what Ohio State fans pined for.  New defensive coordinator Jim Knowles brings hope the Buckeyes can return to defensive dominance. Several years of subpar performances sandwiched around a Jeff Halfey-led radar blip meant change was in order. Now it's about getting current personnel up to speed and finding prospects that best fit the Knowles approach. Translation: Ohio State needs several defensive tackles and safeties - the latter of which has an added emphasis in the scheme.  So how is this for synergy? Our Bill Kurelic has identified four safeties and three defensive tackles the Buckeyes are chasing and Duane Long is here to let you know what he thinks of each prospect. (Kurelic has also identified cornerbacks and receivers Ohio State is chasing which we will tackle next Tuesday). We also discuss Payton Kirkland setting up his third Ohio State visit and break down what the Florida offensive lineman brings to the gridiron.  Want the latest scoops and news on the Buckeyes? Try our 7-DAY FREE TRIAL AND BECOME A BUCKNUTS SUBSCRIBER! Finally, we had Duane opine on Louisiana linebacker and prime Knowles target Tackett Curtis. If you've seen his video ... you know why.

Buckeyes 6 over scholarship limit | What happens from here?
969
Spring ball is just around the corner and Ohio State is currently six over the limit of 85 scholarships. That obviously means some guys will be on the move before camp begins in early August. Who might some of those players be? Dave Biddle flies solo on today's show to speculate on how Ryan Day might manage this tricky situation with his roster. Also, is the NCAA at fault for counting "super seniors" against the 85 limit, unlike last year? Or is perhaps another group of people at fault? Furthermore, even though the Buckeyes are over the limit now, might they look to the transfer portal to boost the tight end position? All of that and more is coming your way on the Monday 5ish.

Montgomery in ... but where? | Northern exposed | Joe Cool?
751
Luke Montgomery is from Findlay, Ohio. Findlay High is actually three miles closer to the college in Ann Arbor than The Ohio State University in Columbus. Our vibe is proximity won't be the determining factor in his college decision.  Ohio's top Class of 2023 prospect has announced Feb.17 as his commitment date. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound offensive lineman boasts a who's who of finalists: Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, Clemson and Oklahoma. The Top247 ranks Montgomery as the No. 1 recruit in the state of Ohio. He is tabbed as the country's No. 6 offensive tackle and No. 62 prospect overall per the 247Sports Composite. Duane Long is here to put all of that in context before commenting on possible Ohio State standouts, Jim Harbaugh's goofy offseason and who wins the Super Bowl.

Patrick Murphy joins Dave Biddle to discuss that, plus: * Josh Gattis leaving Michigan to become the offensive coordinator of the Miami Hurricanes. This means the Wolverines will now be replacing both coordinators. What does this say about Jim Harbaugh, if anything? * Speaking of OSU's new coaches, what stood out to Patrick when we met with them last week? Does he think Jim Knowles can turn around the Buckeyes' defense immediately? * Ohio State's men's basketball team looked very good in picking up a win over Maryland on Sunday.

The Buckeyes had the No. 52 total defense in the country in 2021, and Day has overhauled his coaching staff on that side of the ball. In fact, only defensive line coach Larry Johnson remains as a holdover on the defensive staff. Everyone else is out, including linebackers coach Al Washington and Kerry Coombs. Coming to Columbus are safeties coach Perry Eliano from Cincinnati and cornerbacks coach Tim Walton -- a former OSU corner -- from the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jonah Booker joins Dave Biddle to discuss all of the Buckeyes' coaching moves and more on the Friday 5ish.

'Biggest shift of college football in our lifetimes'

Much has changed in college football over the last year or so. Major changes that have completely shifted the landscape of the sport we live. Players being able to transfer one time without sitting out a season. Players being able to profit off their name, image and likeness, and boosters more than willing to help their favorite program reel in recruits using NIL money. While it is a good time to be a college football player, what about the sport itself? Is it as great as it always was? Even better? Worse? Too early to tell? What might the future hold?

Matt Barnes to run Buckeyes' defense in future seasons too?
1373
Ohio State's defense continues to make strides in the right direction. The Buckeyes lead the nation in sacks and have simply been better overall since Matt Barnes took over as the shot caller. If this continues, is it as simple as Ryan Day will officially promote Barnes to defensive coordinator next season? Are we getting ahead of ourselves? Of course. That's what we do around here. On the offensive side of the ball, wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba is coming off one of the best performances for an OSU wide receiver in the history of the program. That's obviously excellent news. The not-so-good news is the offensive line has now struggled in back-to-back performances in the run blocking department. What is to make of the offensive moving forward this season? Also, the Buckeyes will face off against Purdue this Saturday at the Horseshoe. What are thoughts on this matchup?

Is this the best offense in Ohio State history? Should overtime rules in CFB be changed?
1140
Are we witnessing not only the best offense in college football this season, but the best offense in Ohio State history? It sure appears so and it's a lot of fun to watch. Also, the defense is much improved since the early stages of the season and that is a good thing. However, the Buckeyes have played some really bad offenses recently -- such as Indiana this past Saturday -- so how much do we really know about the defense at this stage? Speaking of bad offenses, Penn State is coming to town this Saturday night and Ohio State is favored by 18 points over the Nittany Lions. Penn State was ranked No. 2 in the country as recently as three weeks ago, but has dropped to 20th after consecutive losses, including a 20-18 defeat to Illinois in an NCAA-record nine overtimes. Speaking of college football overtime rules, do they need to be changed. An argument for "hell yes" is made on today's show.

The Buckeyes were simply dominant before halftime and downshifted after the break. What to make of the win? C.J. Stroud looked tremendous. The Matt Barnes-called defense showed more signs of progress. We also saw the continuation of a Buckeyes youth movement that is incredibly impactful on and off the field.

Also ... there's a pretty big matzoh ball hanging out there for Penn State (see: It's 75 and sunny everyday in L.A.). 247Sports Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong is here to offer perspective before weighing in on Ohio State's trip to New Jersey this weekend.

Any person with cable can clearly see Ohio State's secondary performance has dropped off.

We've talked about the on-field issues. How about off the field? As in: Will this affect defensive back recruiting?  247Sports Director of Recruiting Steve Wiltfong is back with knowledge on Xavier Nwankpa, the all-American safety from Iowa, before delving into Ohio State's coaching upheaval and how it could make recruiting trail waves.

QB situation requires finesse | Offensive line recruiting update

Despite the ongoing struggles, Ohio State's goals remain. Style points aren't currently available but a B1G crown and CFP berth is still a possibility.  Technically, that is. It doesn't take a 10-year Bucknutter to know Ohio State must improve - drastically in some spots - to continue a realistic trek towards the aforementioned goals. Now there are questions about young QB C.J. Stroud on top of lingering defensive woes. Ryan Day changed his defensive play caller. Will he change the signal caller? Duane Long is here to talk Stroud, the emergence of TreVeyon Henderson, what to make of the defensive adjustments and several offensive linemen on the Ohio State recruiting radar.

Quarterback dominos are in play. When Quinn Ewers opted to re-classify - going from the Class of 2022 to the Class of 2021 - it created a void. Ohio State no longer had a quarterback commitment in the Class of 2022. For now. The Buckeye State's top '22 signal caller - Medina's Drew Allar - is verbally committed to Penn State.  For now. As Ohio State readies for a national spotlight tussle with Oregon in The Shoe this weekend, there are also major recruiting implications afoot.

Larry Johnson is excellent | Huge Crystal Ball set to roll?
840
Perhaps you've heard: Defensive line coaching is an Ohio State strength. Yes, one could make a convincing argument Larry Johnson is the best position coach right now ... in the sport. Is that good?

How does Ohio State rank in Overton's recently released top 12? Also: * Is Wiltfong about to roll an enormous Crystal Ball towards Columbus? * Not enough?
