In 2014, theBuckeyes played the Crimson Tide in the semifinalgame, and went on to defeat the Oregon Ducksto win the national title. This year the Buckeyeshave a tough opponentin the Clemson Tigers led Deshaun Watson. One game removed from a chance at another appearancein the Big Ten championship game, the Buckeyes still earned a #3 seed in the College Football Playoffs. The Buckeyesled by quarterback J.T. Barrett, and runningback Curtis Samuel, must play great to secure another chance at the coveted National title. Our Buckeyesas of late have struggled the past coupleof games to get into a rhythm on offense early in the game. The top-ranked defenseof Clemson willsee this on film, and will pressurize
  4. 4. 4 4 quarterback J.T. Barrett. If the offensiveline cannothold up against the rush of the Tigers, our Buckeyeswillbe in for a long game. As many of the Tigers coverages will shift to CurtisSamuel, the coaches on our sidelinewill have to find other weaponsdown the field. The legs of running back Mike Webber and slot receiver Dontre Wilson will have to be utilized by offensivecoordinator Ed Warinner. The Buckeyesdefensiveunit. On the defensivesideof the ball the Buckeyesdefensehas dominated. Justas the defenseof Clemson, the Buckeyesare oneof the top-ranked defensein the nation. Many believe this could be a matchup of the two defenses. The defensethat commits the most mistakes and gives up big playswill surely suffer a playoff loss. The play of the Buckeyedefensive line mustremain stout as Clemson will commit to runningpower back WayneGallman. KeepingWatson contained won’t be an easy task for our Buckeyesdefense at all. Watson has thrown for 4,000 plusyards again this season, and has rushed for 500 pluson the ground. Through all the close game this season, our Buckeyeshavefaced adversity and are here in the College Football Playoffs. The loss to the Big Ten championsPenn State, had many countour Buckeyes out, saying our Buckeyesare a playoff caliber team.

  5. 5. 5 5 Buckeyes in the NFL (2016 NFL Draft) Darron Lee (2013-2015) OSU linebacker drafted in the first round 20th overall pick to the New York Jets. Michael Thomas (2012-2015) OSU Wide receiverdrafted in the second round 47th overall pick to the New Orleans Saints. Braxton Miller (2011-2015) OSU quarterback/wide receiver drafted in the third round 85th overall pick to the Houston Texans.
  6. 6. 6 6 Our Assistant Coaches Start Here Go Anywhere Since Urban Meyer took over as the head man of the Buckeyes in 2012, assistant coaches under Meyer have been targeted as potential head coaches at other universities almost every year. This trend started after the 2012 season when then offensive coordinator Tom Herman was looked to as a rising coach in college football. Tom Herman, previousOhio State offensive coordinator. With Herman as the offensive coordinator of Ohio State, the Buckeyes won 38 games and only loss 4 games. Herman’s style offense was to spread the field and keep defenses off balance with the pass and run. Herman’s balanced attack ranked as one of the nation’s top ranked offenses from 2012 to 2014. Herman’s success as a coordinator garnered more and more attention year after year at OSU. After the 2014 season when there was a coaching vacancy at the University at Houston, Herman took the job as head coach. In two years at Houston, Herman’s record was 22 wins with 4 losses. Herman has recently moved on from his post at Houston to become the head coach at his alma mater Texas. FormerBuckeye defensivecoordinator, Chris Ash (2014-2015) From Arkansas to Ohio State, former Buckeye defensive coordinator Chris Ash has had success. When Ash joined the Buckeye staff, Ash was not on the list of many to take over as a head coach. With the improvement of the Buckeyes defense, and the increase in takeaways by his defense, Ash would later become the head coach at the Rutgers University. In his one season at Rutgers Ash won 2 games and lost 10. We will be watching our fellow assistant the next couple of season to come.
  7. 7. 7 7 Luke Fickell, a long-time Buckeye assistant, was one of the only coaches retained by Urban Meyer after the 2011 season. Fickell served as interim head coach in 2011, and had since been a co- defensive coordinator. From 2012 to 2016, Fickell along with other co – defensive coordinators Chris Ash and Greg Schiano have orchestrated top ranked defenses. On December 10th it was announced that coach Fickell had took the vacancy at the University of Cincinnati, replacing former head coach Tommy Tuberville. This hire comes a year after Chris Ash a former defensive coordinator was named head coach at Rutgers. Fickell will still remain as the Buckeyes defensive coordinator through the college football playoffs. Buckeye fans hope the new job won’t affect the job he still has here at OSU until after the playoffs are concluded. Ohio State coaches. Under Meyer, many assistant have went on to be head coaches. Meyer has had three assistant move on from the Buckeyes since 2012. With the high level of football that the Buckeyes will continue to play at, Meyer will see more and more of his assistant get lured in to being the head coach at other universities. Assistants on the Buckeye staff that could be targeted as potential head coaches are Tim Beck (offensive coordinator) and Greg Schiano (defensive coordinator). These two assistants have proved they are experienced enough to coach a University in the next couple of years. Tim Beck, a former high school assistant, could be targeted as a head coach across the country after the 2017 season. Beck has coached Ezekiel Elliott, Braxton Miller, and Michael Thomas to standout season as coordinator of the Buckeyes. His experience and his ways to find a way to get his stars on offense the ball will sit well with an athletic director looking to hire a new head coach. Beck has been rumored to be targeted as Tom Herman’s offensive coordinator at Texas as well. Former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano returned to college football after a brief stint as Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach, and a few years away from coaching. Following the departure of Chris Ash to Schiano’s old job, Urban Meyer hired Greg Schiano. This hire by Meyer gave Schiano a second chance as a coach. In his one year as defensive coordinator, Ohio State is top 5 in the nation at creating turnovers. It will only be matter of time before Schiano gets a second chance as a head coach, just like Lane Kiffin (FAU) and Randy Edsall (Connecticut).
