Mitchell Melton to miss second straight season due to injury.

The third year defensive end suffered an ACL injury in the spring game. His absence will hurt Buckeye depth on the line as he was expected to garner significant playing time.

Ohio State offers 8th grader?

From Eleven Warriors:

by Garrick Hodge


OSU MAKES FIRST 2026 OFFER

Occasionally when I write about recruits that Ohio State is interested in but are still a few recruiting cycles away from actually playing in college, we’ll get fan feedback that resembles something along the lines of “What’s next, you going to write about eighth-graders?”

Today, I am indeed writing about an eighth-grader. But it’s not without good reason.

On Wednesday, Georgia defensive end Tyler Atkinson became Ohio State’s first offer from the 2026 class, becoming the first recruit since Quinn Ewers to receive a Buckeyes offer before starting high school. Ewers landed his offer after camping at Ohio State in June 2018, but Atkinson received his offer before the Buckeyes’ summer camp season even began.(excerpt)

Part of me is disappointed that OSU would stoop to SEC tactics and offer a scholarship to an eighth grader. Then again with the way recruiting has changed with NIL cash, I guess the Buckeyes have to reassess recruiting methods to stay relevant.

Ohio State season opener on September 3rd will be a 7:30 pm kickoff on ABC. The ESPN Game Day show will be in attendance.

Hopefully this will create a little "atmosphere" and "energy" to what is becoming a more and more mediocre fan experience in Ohio Stadium.

If they want to make the environment at the Shoe what it was, lower the ticket prices and kick the old money out of the seats. The people between the 20 yard lines sit on their hands the entire game and the adamant fans can't afford to go to the games anymore......

Great comment BR.

Even back in my student days, '68-'71 seasons, the "blue hair" donor class had the best seats and treated the games as social events to be seen rather than to act as loud fans. Throw in cost, the traffic hassles, and subpar amenities, I think you will continue to see empty seats at Ohio Stadium except for premiere games. Of course most college programs share the problem of fewer butts in the stand.
