Tale of the Tape: Ohio State at the Halfway Point (Defense)

Fulton Analysis: Multiplicity

Ohio State turned in another stellar performance in its 66-17 victory over Maryland. Offensively, the Buckeye run game was slowed early by the Terrapins’ strategy to combine a condensed, odd front with a nose guard head up on the center with a soft cover 2 or quarters coverage to protect against big pass plays. In …

Behind Enemy Lines: Maryland

The Terps managed to miss the Buckeyes last season due to a COVID cancellation, keeping the all-time series record between these two teams at 6-0. The last time these two teams played, the Buckeyes were looking to answer for a 52-51 overtime win the previous years and erase all doubts about their dominance over the …

Tale of the Tape: Maryland

The Buckeyes complete their “new guy” two-step this weekend with Maryland coming to town. The two teams did not play last season, the first time in the long (okay, six games) history of this series as Jim Delany brought Rutgers and Maryland into the fold for the start of the 2014 season. Much like the …

Fulton Analysis: Complementary Football

Ohio State turned in its most complete, complementary game this season in its 52-13 win over Rutgers. Offensively, Ryan Day and Kevin Wilson had a well-honed plan to target Rutgers’ 4-3 stack that features a nose guard titled at the center, heavy amounts of slanting, and safeties that aggressively trigger to insert themselves in the …

By the Numbers: A Final Look at Rutgers

Scoop Eats: Rutgers

We had a lot of suggestions come in when we told people we were looking for somewhere to eat on our trip to Rutgers for the latest edition of Scoop Eats. No place was brought up more than RU Hungry, a brick and mortar edition of a famous food truck with roots into the 1970s. …

Behind Enemy Lines: Rutgers

This may be the first game of the short series between Ohio State and Rutgers where anyone is really entertaining the idea of “what if” Rutgers is able to get past the Buckeyes?

Are We Set For A Weekend Of Chaos?

The Big Me Kickoff puts the entire week of college football in focus with Bill Bender of The Sporting News. Sure, the Buckeyes are off to Rutgers to take on the Scarlet Knights, but the line is still north of two touchdowns and Ohio State is not going to lose to Rutgers. Right? Well, this …

Tale of the Tape: Rutgers

Saturday’s game between the Buckeye and Scarlet Knights will mark the 8th time that these two teams have played in a series that has been as lopsided as one might imagine with Ohio State winning the previous seven games by an average margin of 43 points. Rutgers has been shut out twice in those seven …

Fulton Analysis: Defensive Scheme Change

Ohio State broke tendencies on both sides of the football in its 59-7 win over an over-matched Akron. Offensively, the Buckeyes overcame freshman quarterback Kyle McCord’s early game jitters by targeting the edge toward the halfback’s side in shotgun. Often, opposing defenses will slant and/or overplay away from Ohio State’s offset halfback, expecting zone runs …
