There have been rumored reports since last weekend that former Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer will be the next coach at Ohio State.

Websites, newspapers, radio and television stations around Columbus, Ohio, home of Ohio State have reported that Meyer has agreed in principle to become the Buckeyes coach next week.

Meyer is continuing to say there has been no offer or no deal accepted.

The Buckeyes are currently being coached by interim coach Luke Fickell, who will lead the team against the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday at noon.

OSU is currently at 6-5, their worst season since Jim Tressel’s first year in 2001 at 7-5. If they lose Saturday, they’ll be 6-6, the worst record since John Cooper’s team posted that record in 1999.

Meyer is no stranger to Ohio or the Buckeyes, having grown up in Ashtabula, grew up a Buckeyes fan, worked on Earle Bruce’s staff in the 1980′s as has such admiration of Woody Hayes, the legendary coach, that he has his picture displayed in his home.

Meyer has won two national titles in 2006 and 2008 while at Florida.

He is currently employed by ESPN as an game and studio analyst.

The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan Wolverines will be meeting for the 108th time on Saturday at the “The Big House” Michigan Stadium in the west Detroit suburb of Detroit.

Game time is 12 noon and will be televised nationally by ABC.

Ohio State is 6-5 overall and 3-4 in the Big Ten Leaders Division. Michigan is 9-2 overall and 5-2 in the Big Ten Legends Division.

The Wolverines leads the overall series against Ohio State with 57 wins, 43 losses and six ties. Ohio State has won the past seven consecutive games in the series. Over the past 60 years, dating back to the the 1951 season, Woody Hayes’ first year and the start of a 28-year run as head coach, the Buckeyes lead the series 31-26-2.

In winning seven straight games over Michigan, OSU has won nine of the past 10 games in the series dating to 2000. Prior to that streak, Michigan had won 13 of the previous 18 games in the series with one tie, dating back to the 1983 season.

Ohio State first-year coaches have not done well in this game as Luke Fickell is in his inaugural season. Overall the coaches are 5-10-2 vs. the Wolverines. Sam Willaman in 1929, Francis Schmidt 1934, Carroll Widdoes 1944, Earle Bruce 1979 and Jim Tressel 2001 are the only Ohio State coaches who won in their debut game against Michigan.

As far as both teams having first year head coaches in this game, Saturday’s game will only mark the the third time in the series history this will occur. Luke Fickell and Michigan coach Brady Hoke are each in their first seasons. In 1887 Gustave Ferbert’s Michigan team beat David F. Edwards’ Buckeyes, 34-0 in Ann Arbor. In 1929, Sam Willaman’s Buckeyes’ shutout Harry Kipke’s Wolverines, 7-0 also at Ann Arbor.

The tough month of October schedule continues for the Buckeyes on Saturday, as they make the 4-hour trip to Champaign, Illinois for a matchup with #15 Fighting Illini at Memorial Stadium.

The game is set for kickoff at 3:30 p.m. on ABC-TV. The Buckeyes lead the series 62-30-4 and they won in Champaign last year 24-13.

The Illini are led by former OSU assistant coach and Loudonville, Ohio native Ron Zook.

The Illini at 6-0 have not started a season 7-0 since 1951 which was Woody Hayes’ first season at Ohio State.

The Illini on defense are not very good as they rank 56th nationally against the pass, allowing 217 yards per game.

The Illini offense is a good one led by QB Nathan Scheelhaase and WR A.J. Jenkins. That duo gave OSU fits last year and most definitely will this time around.

Jenkins leads the Big Ten in pass receptions (46), receiving yards (815) and receiving touchdowns (7). And Scheelhaase is a duo-threat who can run and pass. He is averaging 206 yards a game, with 10 passing touchdowns and 3 interceptions.

The Illini have a running back by committee like the Buckeyes. They employ Troy Pollard and Jason Ford and ranks 13th in the nation and fourth in the Big Ten in rushing with 226 yards per game.

The Illini have the edge on both sides of the ball for this matchup.

Buckeyes will honor 1961 team for Wisconsin game


The Ohio State Buckeyes football team will have a different look when they play their homecoming game against the Wisconsin Badgers on October 29.

The team will be wearing Nike Pro Combat System uniforms which will honor the 1961 team.

The 1961 uniforms were distinctive, with a helmet that featured a broad scarlet stripe over the middle which had padding over that area and was dropped after two years.

The 1961 team under Woody Hayes, was voted national champions by the polls, but not the wire services.

The school’s faculty council opted not to allow the Buckeyes to play in the Rose Bowl.
