Ohio State vs. Rutgers Will Be Season-Defining For Buckeyes

In what is shaping up to be a boring week across the college football world, it's a week for teams and fans to turn their focuses inward and do some self evaluation. There are a small handful of games that could turn out to be interesting, but it's primarily a chance to pay close attention to storylines specific to each school.

For the Ohio State Buckeyes, head coach Urban Meyer's recent move to insert J.T. Barrett as the starting quarterback over the underperforming Cardale Jones is one that will garner plenty of attention on Saturday night when the Buckeyes take on Rutgers.

How Will You Remember Super Bowl XLIX?

First off, it's good to be back writing The Skinny On Sports. I had a taken a brief hiatus due to some personal reasons, but it is great to be back writing the blog where it all started out.

This morning, sports fans across the country woke up somewhere between a food coma and a hangover. To make things worse, it's Monday, meaning they had to drag themselves to work while there bodies begged them to stay in bed, or by the toilet.

At work, it's no secret what the conversation topic of choice will be: Super Bowl XLIX.

It's a Fundamental Thing...

Zimmerman, above, has committed 9 errors this season.

For Redskins Tevita Stevens, All He Needs is an Opportunity

Stevens, 54, was signed by the Redskins following the draft.

Sports. They can be a beautiful thing. They can be a healing thing. They can be a remedy for pain and suffering.

This past Monday, Boston was rocked when two bombs went off at the finish of the Boston Marathon as I'm sure most of you, hopefully all of you, may have at least heard about. Due to the suspects still on the loose, security at sporting events was heightened and at some Boston sports spectacles, even canceled.

Let's Play Ball!!!

This one may be a day late, but it still means the same nonetheless. Baseball is back. And thank goodness it is. The crack of the bat, the whistling of the ball as it flies through the air, and the roar of the crowd as the hero does his home run trot around the bases. Ah's beautiful.
