Chad Lindsay Will Give Ohio State Help Where Buckeyes Need It Most

Protecting quarterback Braxton Miller is a top priority for Ohio State in 2014. The Buckeyes reportedly just got reinforcement on that front. It hasn’t been confirmed by the school yet, but former Alabama offensive lineman Chad Lindsay informed’s Jeremy Fowler on Tuesday that he’s transferring to Ohio State. “It’s done. Go Buckeyes!” Lindsay texted Fowler. In a time when graduate transfers have a free-agency feel to them, Lindsay provides Ohio State an immediate upgrade to a position hit hard by turnover. The Buckeyes return just one starter—tackle Taylor Decker—after losing four seniors from last year. The only other assured starter is right guard Pat Elflein. Though Lindsay only started four games for the Tide at center, all last year, he has plenty of playing experience as a backup during his time in Tuscaloosa. That should give him an edge as he competes for playing time during preseason camp, as experience is something that is generally lacking for the Buckeyes in the trenches. Last year’s senior-laden group helped the team finish fifth nationally in rushing (308.6 yards per game) and set school records in points scored (637), touchdowns (87) and touchdown passes (38), per Ohio State’s website. “The buzz around Tuscaloosa is Alabama did not want to lose Lindsay and had considered starting him at center while moving Ryan Kelly to left tackle,” Fowler wrote. “That’s no longer an option, and…

Ohio State Basketball: Breaking Down Buckeyes’ Options at Guard in 2014-15

The backcourt the Ohio State basketball team trots on the floor in the 2014-15 season will look drastically different than it has the past four years. The frontcourt has seen the likes of Jared Sullinger, Deshaun Thomas, LaQuinton Ross and David Lighty shuffle in and out over that time span, but the one constant was always Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. at the guard spots. Of course, Jon Diebler was also a major part of the guard rotation early in Craft’s tenure. Clearly, losing Craft leaves a formidable hole on the roster. He was the best defensive player in the nation and often controlled games from that end of the floor, created opportunities for himself and others with his penetration and was an extension of Thad Matta on the floor. As for Smith, the lefty was certainly inconsistent at times during his career, but he provided solid defense, three-point touch and underrated rebounding. In fact, Smith’s ability to crash the glass will be the part of his game that is missed most in Columbus, especially when Amir Williams is on the floor at center. So, what will the backcourt look like in 2014-15 for the scarlet and gray? The primary holdover is Shannon Scott, who has played his way into Matta’s rotation with Craft-like defense, quickness in the open floor and the ability to get to the rim off the bounce. He will have a much bigger responsibility on both ends of the floor without Craft and will probably be more comfortable in a defined point…
