four days. This is it. This is the introduction.
Before diving into the good stuff, look at these cleats:
Ohio State Football (OhioStateFB) August 29, 2022
Anytime Nike adopts the use of gray in the Ohio State uniform concept, I think it’s a big win. In recent years, you’d think black was one of the primary colors with how much it was used, so it’s good to see it go back to the roots.
Anyway, let’s have a good Tuesday, shall we?
Bulletin board materials. There’s an old sports saying, “Good teams win. Big teams cover.” That means Ohio State will need 18 points better than Notre Dame on September 3 to be considered great, with odds for the week set at 17.5 points in favor of the Buckeyes.
Now I will make some undoing of this adage. The Buckeyes don’t need to beat the Irish by 18 points to be called up as one of the best teams in college football. It is enough to simply add a number in the win column. This is a game between the top five of the inaugural season at Ohio Stadium – a first for the Buckeyes.
However, there was also a lot of hype surrounding this rivalry throughout the off-season, which would make a big win over Notre Dame all the more significant for Ohio State.
From Marcus Freeman in The Players Tribune hints at it He chose the wrong school When he played college ball for Ohio State, for his critical comments about him Academic Standards Alma Mater (Which is after that Claimed it was a wrong quote), Buckeye fans will love to see their team cover the spread.
As more fuel for a pro-Ohio conflagration, Freeman added another story at Monday’s news conference when a reporter told him that several odds makers had set the point of spread for the Buckeyes in the game. Freeman’s response?
“I didn’t know that,” he said. “I’m going to write that down. You said 17.5 points, right? We’re going to use that in today’s team meeting. Good to know.”

Freeman’s words indicate that he does not intend for his team to lose by more than two goals and one field goal. However, John Ewing of BetMGM claims that it’s more common for a favorite to cover the spread in a Top 25 Weeks match than not.
In the past 10 years, in the first week competitions for the top 25 teams, the favorite is 18-11 (62%) ATS per Tweet embed.
No. 3 Georgia -17.5 vs No. 11 Oregon
No. 2 Ohio -15.5 vs No. 5 Notre Dame
No. 19 Arkansas -6.5 vs No. 23 Cincinnati

Ewing’s odds are Ohio State as a 15.5-point favorite, but the message still applies. With all the increased intensity of the game, Buckeyes fans will undoubtedly win but they can get it, but I think they would really want to lose too.
Eddie Buckeye for life. Eddie George’s Ohio roots remain deep, as is his hatred of Michigan. The Heisman Cup winner and current Tennessee State head coach reminded Buckeye fans of that fact over the weekend when he discussed his son Eriq’s future in college football.
Ariq is a defensive lineman in the 2023 class of the Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville. He has performances from Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, and Marshall and U Martin, among others. He will likely receive more during and after his first season at high school ball.

However, Eddie said he did not want to play a two-school ace at the next level. He doesn’t want Tennessee State rival Jackson to show interest and, as you can imagine, won’t allow his son to accept any calls from Wolverine if she knocks.
“He can’t go to Jackson State,” Eddie said. Mississippi Clarion Ledger After his son’s game in Nashville. “He’s not going to go there or this team up north. But I tell him to see all that there is and to finally trust your intuition, trust your intuition.”

Eddie realizes that his son’s recruiting pitches should always be part Buckeye, part coach and most importantly, part father.
“This is his deal, his process, his career,” said Eddie George. “He knows what I’m doing (in Tennessee). He’s around me every day, and he knows how he’s going to get training (if he chooses TSU). I tell him to go and see what’s out there. Go where the heart desires.”
It’s hard to imagine, however, that Eddie George would be excited because his son wears corn and blue with a winged helmet in Ann Arbor. This would make Thanksgiving and the days after that a bit awkward.
Oh captain! My leader or my master! There will come a time when the state of Ohio will end these types of videos for posting to its captains. According to my accounts, the Twitter account has covered Cade Stover, CJ Stroud, Kourt Williams and now Tyler Friday, leaving Tommy Eichenberg and Kam Babb as the final Buckeye captains with no video.
It’s also made for Skull sessions, when those videos are posted, you’ll know where to find them, and that’s right here.
Friday’s video shows a fifth-year defensive lineman and coach Larry Johnson telling my dad on Friday that he has been named captain of the team for the 2022 season. As with the parents in previous clips, Friday’s mom and dad were overwhelmed with excitement for their son.

Johnson said during pre-season camp that Friday had been a fantastic captain in the program since arriving on campus in 2018. Johnson also said Friday was on track to become captain last year before suffering a season-ending AFC Champions League rupture in training. summer.
“We thought Tyler had great leadership skills before he got injured. I mean he was really in the process of emerging as a leader. I think he turned the tables when he got injured and how hard he worked in rehab to get back to where he was.” Johnson said on August 16: “If you see him every morning, every day grinds to get himself back. That was impressive to a lot of kids. He set the standard for what he was like when he was young. I think that’s why his colleagues voted him leader.”
Olympic Village. Former Ohio State men’s tennis star JJ Wolf made his first upset at the 2022 US Open in New York City when he defeated No. 16 Roberto Bautista Agut in straight sets (6-4, 6-4, 6-4) to advance to first place. The second round of the event.

Wolff collected 14 aces during the match and used his powerful serve to gain momentum against Agut, a Spaniard who has claimed 11 ATP Tour titles and defeated 21-time Grand Slam winner Novak Djokovic of his career.
After Wolfe’s win, former Buckeye jumped and threw his fist in the air to celebrate—something he made during his playing days in Columbus.
Show the vertical, JJ Wolf!
