If At First You Don't Succeed, Try Jent Again

Chris Jent is a familiar face in a familiar place.

It was reported earlier by Mark Titus that the clear replacement for Jeff Boals would be Chris Jent. The assistant coach spot is a very important one and Chris Jent is a perfect choice to help Thad Motta and company get back on track. He already knows the system and will be a great second-in-command again, and this helps get Jent back to a team that has a strong pedigree with winning in it's history.

Jent was last on the Ohio State staff from 2011-2013, and ran the offense very efficiently. His offense boasted 73 points per game and a 47% shooting from the field. When he left the teams numbers dropped 2 points and 2 percentage in made shots. It was a tough loss for the Buckeyes when he left for the NBA.

He had a tough go of things though when he came onto the Sacramento Kings staff. Through no fault of his own the Kings coach was let go after Jent's second season there. This too was Jent's early curtain call with the Kings. Jent then found himself looking for work, and he landed on the Bakersfield Jam as the head coach last year.

Jent has already had quite a storied career. He has been a part of great teams like the Cleveland Cavaliers, where he was a favorite on the staff of "The King" Lebron James, the Orlando Magic with Dirk Nowitzki, and the Philadelphia 76s. Before that, he played in several different basketball leagues which includes the CBA, USBL, the International league, and the NBA where he won a championship with the Rockets in 1994.

Jent is an Ohio State alumni who had pretty good numbers during his career there. Over his four years he averaged 8.2 points per game, 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and a 41percent shooting from the field. He was a part of three NCAA tournaments and won back-to-back Big 10 conference titles.

He is a breath of fresh air for the coaching staff and players at Ohio State, and can be the rejuvenation of the whole program if things get rolling with the team.

Antjuan Simmons Commits To Ohio State



Antjuan Simmons is going to be a Ohio State Buckeye. (Ad: H&R Block Tax Filing Discounts at http://2015Taxes.org)

Although his high school is extremely close to Michigan Stadium in Ann arbor, this 3-star LB has committed to play football with the Buckeyes. Apparently, Simmons isn't worried about traveling the longer distance to Ohio.  He also wasn't influenced by the fact that he attends the  same high school that Michigan's coach attended.

Antjuan Simmons announced his decision to attend Ohio State University via his Twitter account.  He thanked all of the other schools that made offers, but he choose Ohio State University.

Antjuan Simmons received 40 scholarship offers per 247Sports, and this includes offers from colleges in close proximity such as Michigan State and Michigan.  He also has received offers from Penn State, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Oregon and UCLA.  This is a long list of prestigious colleges that are known for their prized football programs.

He is rated the 27th best high school linebacker in the nation and the 11th best player in Michigan per 247Sports.  These stats probably won't stay the same because of the numerous offers he has received.  Unfortunately, this tends to change the way players are rated by recruitment websites.

Antjuan Simmons is the 12th high school football player to commit to the Ohio State Buckeyes from the class of 2017.  This list includes two 5-star recruits, and it has a ranking of number one per 247Sports.

However, Antjuan Simmons is the first linebacker from the 2017 class that has made a commitment to the Ohio State University Buckeyes football team.  But the school is quickly recruiting plenty of talent from this 2017 class, which means there will be more recruits.

West Michigan had a decent season last year with a 8 and 5 record. These stats allowed the team to place 3rd in MAC.

Stars Returning this Year for The Broncos

As a football team, the Broncos possess four extremely prolific players: Terrell, Davis, Braverman and Franklin. Terrell accomplished 26 touchdowns, which gave him a No. 3 ranking within the MAC. Franklin, serving as a newcomer on offensive, came in fourth. He brought in 24 touchdowns. Meanwhile, Braverman and Davis earned second and third rankings due to having 86 and 78 receptions respectively. DePalma, a linebacker, earned 102 tackles. Finally, Ronald Zamort intercepted 4 passes while also defending 21.

Western Michigan Aims to Get Newcomers Into The Game

Bogan might be playing to release stress from Franklin when it comes to offense. In the meantime, Matich will be playing as a middle guard for Western Michigan.

How Western Michigan Plans its Offense

During games last season they had very impressive statistics. However, the Broncos suffered many losses.  Due to 24 fumbles, ten games were lost.

Important Points Regarding the Defense

Since Ash left the team, his loss has been noticed. To regain its dominance, Western Michigan will experiment with utilizing the Cougar. The only other problem after resolving this difficulty centers on replacing Celiscar, formerly a secondary.

Spotlighting Special Teams

Haldeman gained success with 14 field goals. Phillips achieved 26.4 yards after having completed 30 kickoffs.

Remaining Questions Regarding Western Michigan

Once the season commences, which team can be expected to participate? Fleck made an important point: the team featured during 2013 played with a fresh mindset.

Future Outlook

Western Michigan received the right to finish second. Fleck, a man who formerly served as a graduate assistant, promises to be an outstanding choice.

Go Ohio State Buckeyes!

The commercial 'Go Buckeyes' really cracks me up. Do you remember it? It's the one where a couple is introducing themselves to each other while the woman is driving. Suddenly it becomes clear that they're actually out on a blind date. The guy ends up jumping out of her car because she is chanting one of Ohio State's rival team's slogan. He not only jumps out of the moving car, but he screams back 'GO BUCKEYES' as loud as he can.

You may wonder why all the fuss over football. Well, it's way more than just football, it's pride and tradition. The Buckeyes have now been a part of the football world for a whopping 25 years. They take great pride in representing Ohio State University and competing in the Subdivision of the NCAA Division I Football Bowl. Their first season ever goes all the way back to 1890. All total they've won 7 national championships with 10 undefeated seasons as well as 36 Conference Championships. In 1942 they won their first ever national championship under the leadership of coach Paul Brown.

With such a rich history and tons of tradition tied into the Ohio State football team, it's no wonder why people get Buckeye fever during football season.

2014 Ohio State Football Pro Day: A Day Of Lessons

The past Buckeyes linebacker, Etiene Sabino, and 16 other former Buckeyes graced a training session on Friday during the Annual Ohio State Football Pro Day.

The primary order of business was a bunch of four players with divergent talents and the ability to be drawn in the first round pick. The players included running back Carlos Hyde, linebacker Ryan Shazier, cornerback Bradley Roby and Jack Mewhort, an offensive lineman.

What could have been a successful workout session turned out to be a drab anticlimax as all of the 17 former Buckeyes we unable to complete the arduous drilling practice session due to injury or fatigue.

However, all was not lost during the Annual Ohio State Football Pro Day. The fans got what they deserved as they were able to witness the former Buckeyes doing what they used to do so well. Plus, various lessons were harvested which will become cemented when applied to future fantasy football leagues. 
Ryan is outlandish

Shazier picked up a hamstring injury before the NFL Scouting combine. He was therefore unable to run the 40-yard sprint he was guilty of failing to complete on Friday due to a similar hamstring problem.

Nonetheless, he staged some mad results

Shazier clocked an unofficial 4.36 seconds. Even though this appears quick it could get worse the moment it becomes official and hits the airwaves. It is the best time for linebackers and the 4th best when all the player's speeds are analysed together. 

When in Indianapolis, Ryan Shazier executed the highest ever vertical jump, a spine chilling 42 inches. He is evidently fiery. His thunderbolt speed, classy tactics and excellent technique were all displayed on Friday and they are on record.

Shazier will be absent in the second round. 

Mewhort's diversity was on show in Columbus as he played left tackle for the majority of the time and also started at right and left guard is some matches.

In the NFL he however preferred to remain at tackle. With a weight of 315lbs and a height of 6.6 inches he will surely be able to get a stint or two.

It will be an awesome idea for Mewhort to try out different positions as there are no guarantees in the NFL. Most NFL teams have a lot of versatility in their ranks and players who can play different positions. 

Any player who harbors hopes of being picked for the first team must be willing and able to play in different roles.

Besides, being drafted is what all players dream of. 

Look forward to seeing Kenny Guiton training for the Patriots. 

The good news for Kenny Guiton is that the New England Patriots have a gnac for mounting the Big 10 quarterbacks. Remember, this is the same team that helped Tom Brady (Michigan) to scale the heights of success and earn a place in the Hall of Fame.
