    William White, an 11-year NFL veteran who started at safety for the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XXXIII, has died at 56 following a six-year battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Primarily known for his time with the Detroit Lions, who drafted him out of Ohio State in 1988, White had 20 interceptions over his career and was generally regarded as one of the tougher safeties in football before retiring in 1998 after his only Super Bowl appearance. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs.  'I loved William,' said Lions executive Chris Spielman, a former teammate of White's in Detroit and at Ohio State. 'We shared experiences of joy and sorrow on and off the field. He was and always will be my brother.  'I am forever grateful for the special moment last year when he was able to be by my side during the Pride of the Lions ceremony at Ford Field. I can't wait to see him again when he will be free from ALS. May God's peace rest upon his family.' Former Detroit Lions player William...

Not only did Intel say that its forthcoming server chip would be delayed another year to 2024, but it would be investing heavily in big capital foundry projects, forgoing cash flow for three years and allowing revenue and profit margins to shrink. For Wall Street analysts and shareholders, Intel's recovery plan seems potentially long and risky, based on the vision of new CEO Pat Gelsinger. It will take years for Intel to ramp up its new domestic foundry business making chips to sell to designers like Apple and Qualcomm, wrote Morningstar analyst Abhinav Davuluri...
    Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback C.J. Stroud shocked the country in his debut season. His sophomore campaign has room for another massive explosion. The 2021 college football season started with more uncertainty than usual after most of the nation’s established quarterbacks entered the NFL. Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson attempted to reload after playoff runs with their first-round quarterbacks. Alabama produced 2021 Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young, and Ohio State produced C.J. Stroud, who finished fourth in the race. The Buckeyes’ quarterback race was one of the most interesting preseason storylines across the nation due to the young talent involved. Head coach Ryan Day assembled an impressive array of top talent, including two high 4-star recruits and two 5-stars. The headlining talent was No. 1 overall recruit Quinn Ewers arriving on campus just before the season. Whoever won the job was in a curious situation. On one hand, the Buckeyes weren’t expected to be as dominant as the year prior after losing Justin Fields and other top talents. But it was clear the team would still have impactful talent with Chris...

    Tensions were running high in Ann Arbor, Michigan on Saturday afternoon as the football team beat their closest rivals, Ohio State, for the first time in ten years.   The rivalry was on display not just on the field but in the tunnel to the dressing room at halftime when Michigan held a narrow 14-13 lead. Video captured a shouting match as the Wolverines and Buckeyes headed to their respective locker rooms as teammates began pushing, shoving and swearing at one another.

    Ohio Stadium hasn’t seen too many losses from the Ohio State football team. Ohio State is in danger of seeing their home winning streak come to an end today vs. Oregon. Ohio State has trailed Oregon throughout with the Ducks controlling the ground game with a physical offensive line and great running from CJ Verdell. With a seven-point lead late in the fourth quarter, if Ohio State loses, it will be the first home loss in front of Ohio Stadium fans since Week 2 of the 2017 season when Baker Mayfield and the Oklahoma Sooners beat Ohio State.Ohio State hasn’t lost at home since 2017The Sept. 9, 2017 game was the last time Buckeyes fans left Ohio Stadium without a win, a span of 23 games.

    No. 12 Oregon (1-0) at No. 3 Ohio State (1-0), Saturday at noon EDT (FOX). Line: Ohio State by 14 ½, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Series record: Ohio State leads 9-0. WHAT’S AT STAKE? C.J. Stroud, Ohio State’s new starting quarterback, wants to show he is a worthy heir to Justin Fields. After some early jitters, the freshman had an outstanding second half as the Buckeyes pulled away from Minnesota 45-31 in the opener on Thursday. Success for Ohio State will depend on Stroud’s continued development. Oregon gets a measuring-stick game after surviving unranked Fresno State on Saturday.

    Ohio State football fans were not pleased with the performance of C.J. Stroud during the first half of their season-opening game against Minnesota. Every single season, the Ohio State Buckeyes are expected to qualify for the College Football Playoff at a minimum. Their first step to reaching the playoff begins on Thursday night, as they faced off against the Minnesota Golden Gophers. As for the quarterback who received the start, C.J. Stroud, he did not endear himself to the Buckeyes faithful in their first game of the 2021 campaign. Ohio State trailed Minnesota by the score of 14-10 at halftime. Stroud threw an interception to Terrell Smith in the second quarter, and Minnesota capitalized eight plays later on a goal-line rushing touchdown by Mohamed Ibrahim. Even though it was only one half, some Ohio State fans were already calling for freshman phenom Quinn Ewers to replace Stroud.Ohio State football fans already calling for Quinn Ewers to replace C.J.

    Ohio State explored going independent following the Big 10’s initial decision to cancel the football season. According to documents released related to the fight to save football, OSU AD Gene Smith admitted that he was trying to figure out if the conference’s contracts allowed the Buckeyes to play independently.

    Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) said his state’s effort to use a lottery to inspire residents to take a Covid-19 vaccine is working, with people showing up to “win” the money. “It’s clear that there’s some people out there that just kind of ambivalent” about getting the vaccine, DeWine said in a Friday Fox News interview with Charles Payne. “So I felt that if we put forward this — it’s not technically a lottery under Ohio law, we’re calling it a drawing. We’re going to do it for straight five weeks. Anybody who’s been vaccinated … will be eligible to win a million dollars, and we’ll do that five separate times.” He noted the state was providing a similar program with scholarships as a reward for those aged 17 and younger. “We’ll pay room, board, tuition, the whole thing,” DeWine said. “So it’s a lot of fun. We’re already starting to see people walk in to vaccination sites and mention the fact that, ‘Hey, I’m here to win the money.'” Numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate a little more than 42 percent of Ohioans have received at least one dose of a Covid-19...

    The speed at which COVID-19 vaccine doses are becoming available to people in Ohio has taken two major steps. Gov. Mike DeWine has announced the state will begin the process of working with local colleges and universities to offer vaccination clinics on campuses across the state. The clinics are expected to start next week with the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. All those 16 years old and older are eligible for the vaccine. “Although young people are less likely to get sick from the coronavirus, they are significant carriers of the virus,” DeWine said. “By offering one-dose clinics on campus, students who wish to be vaccinated will have a nearby, convenient location to get the vaccine with their peers.” The hope is to reach all Ohio college students before the school year ends in May. At the same time, the state will begin working with private employers and other organizations to offer workplace vaccination clinics. Vaccine providers will be allowed to use 25% of their allocation to vaccinate their own employees or to partner...

In addition to running a 4.4 40-yard dash, Fields was dropping dimes left and right throwing the pigskin.

First, we are going to more rapidly acquire enough vaccinations to vaccinate every American more quickly than anticipated. There is a second important piece of that plan. It brings relief to a population that is badly hurting,” said Biden, who also said it’s Americans’ patriotic duty to be vaccinated for COVID-19. “Third, and foremost, it’s going to give every American $1,400.

    By Julie Carr Smyth | Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ohio — The arrest July 21 of powerful Republican House Speaker Larry Householder and four associates in a $60 million federal bribery case has upended both politics and policy-making in Ohio. The Ohio House removed Householder from his post Thursday in a unanimous, bipartisan vote and replaced him with state Rep. Robert Cupp, a former Ohio Supreme Court justice. Householder retains his legislative seat for now. It remains to be seen how the scandal will impact November’s high-stakes presidential election. Here’s a look at what we know so far: HOW BIG IS THIS? Householder, of rural Perry County, is the first speaker in state history to be voted out of the post. He is alleged to be at the top of what prosecutors call the largest money-laundering scheme in state history, and the first in the Southern District of Ohio to involve a racketeering charge against a public official. FBI agents continue to knock on doors across the state. Investigators say Householder and his associates received $60 million funneled through a...
    Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich has given up on Trump. Ohio has burrowed itself deep in impeached president Donald Trump, who may or may not be hiding in his bunker at this time. It’s not a state that will decide the presidency. Trump won it by eight points in 2016, and if he loses it this year (and chances are growing by the day), he will already have lost Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and several other states—giving presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden more than enough electoral votes to end our long national nightmare. Yet his campaign has now made Ohio the second-largest recipient of advertising dollars, behind only Florida.  So how do you think Trump will react when he finds out that former Ohio two-term Republican governor John Kasich is scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention? Hilarious, right?  The Daily Beast has leaked details on Democratic plans for the mostly online convention, which includes the information on Kasich’s participation. The Associated Press has more information on the Kasich coup, and adds this hint: “Kasich is among a handful of high-profile Republicans likely to become more active in supporting...
    The fact that Black Americans have been hit especially hard by the coronavirus pandemic can be attributed to both economic disparities and health care disparities. Even with the gains of the Affordable Care Act of 2010, a.k.a. Obamacare, millions of Black Americans continue to be uninsured or underinsured. But when Ohio State Sen. Steve Huffman was debating whether or not racism should be declared a public health crisis, the far-right Republican replied that perhaps “the colored population” was being hit so hard by COVID-19 because they don’t wash their hands enough. At an Ohio Senate Health Committee hearing this week, Huffman said, “I understand African-Americans have a higher incidence of chronic conditions, and it makes them more susceptible to death from COVID…. Could it just be that African-Americans or the colored population do not wash their hands as well as other groups or wear a mask or do not socially distance themselves? That could be the explanation of the higher incidence?” Angela Dawson, director of the Ohio Commission on Minority Health, was also present at the hearing — and she...
    Ohio State and Wisconsin are the two football programs with the most wins in the Big 10 over the past decade. According to a Fox College Football photo tweeted out by @RedditCFB, the Buckeyes and Badgers are the only two teams with at least 100 wins in the past 10 years. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) OSU has won 117 and Wisconsin has won 102. You can see the full list below. Michigan is about as close to Rutgers as they are to Ohio State in wins over the past decade. pic.twitter.com/6PzMn9rVId — RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) June 5, 2020 Obviously, I don’t think anyone is surprised to see OSU at the top of the list with 117 wins in the past 10 years. The Buckeyes have been the crown jewel of the B1G for years and years. It’s crazy how big the gap has been at times between them and the rest of the conference. Whether it was Jim Tressel, Urban Meyer or Ryan Day coaching, the Buckeyes have balled out over the past decade....
