We’ve made it through our second sports-less work-week, with an indefinite more to go. However, Saturday and Sunday, the O.G. sports-watching days, are almost more dreadful than the rest of the week. Why even have a weekend if there’s no sports to entertain us? Why even have nice weather if there’s no baseball games to attend? Why even own a TV if there’s nothing on but replays? Yes, I overreact often. Why do you ask?

On the bright side, there is always something to read, catch up on, or listen to here at LGHL and around the Ohio State news cycle. So, we’ve listed all the links, news, tweets, etc. we think you might enjoy in today’s Buckeye Bits.

From around Land-Grant Holy Land...

Buckeye Nation has been on the edge of its seat since Thursday night when the No. 1 running back in the class of 2021, TreVeyon Henderson, tweeted that he has finally made his highly anticipated decision.

He then tweeted that he plans on making the announcement Friday evening, 7 p.m. EST. All signs are pointing to Ohio State for this one. Excuse me as I go knock on wood.

A whole lot of good stuff is featured in this week’s episode, including the sports that are missed the most, the NFL’s free agency (specifically Malcolm Jenkins), which women’s sports teams deserve more recognition and the organizations that are helping to pave the way for them.

Which includes some tidbits from Ryan Day’s latest press conference, what Pro Football Focus is saying about the Buckeyes in the upcoming NFL draft, and more.

We need your help in determining the best Ohio State play of the decade. It’s a tough call, but there can only be one champion.

From around the gridiron...

  • Urban Meyer is safe, however, I’d have to disagree with Shelley here. His mask is far from fashionable.

From around the hardwood...

“It’s a really big opportunity,” Key told the Dispatch. “They’re looking for me to come in and be a presence right away. I’ve just got to work hard every day to make sure I have that spot and get better every day. I’m excited to go out there.”

From around the mat...

InterMat named Ohio State 149-pounder Sammy Sasso its Freshman of the Year after he finished the season with a 24-3 record and No. 3 in the country. Sasso had the potential to win the NCAA tournament as the No. 3 seed but, well, you know...

Still, before the coronavirus ended all of our hopes and dreams, Sasso ended the season as the top-ranked wrestler in his class after taking down Iowa’s Pat Lugo in the Hawkeye’s arena.

From everywhere else...
