Ohio State Football Schedule

2012 Season

By

Urban Meyer starts his first year as head football coach of The Ohio State Buckeyes. After suffering a disappointing 2011 season and coming out of the shadows of controversy many of the Buckeye faithful are looking forward to a fresh start.

The team is still under penalties with no post-season option, but that hasn't dampened the scarlet and gray spirit. O-H!

Fast Facts:Ever wonder what the team gathers to sing in the end zone at the end of every game? The first verse of Carmen Ohio:

Oh! Come let's sing Ohio's praise,
And songs to Alma Mater raise;
While our hearts rebounding thrill,
With joy which death alone can still.
Summer's heat or Winter's cold,
The seasons pass, the years will roll;
Time and change will surely show
How firm thy friendship O-hi-o.
