[The Columbus Dispatch] ~ Blogging the Buckeyes: Tyler Moeller to return in 2011

Received this and thought it would be good to share on the blog…

**

 

Coach Jim Tressel told the team today after practice that safety Tyler Moeller has been granted his sixth year of eligibility and will return in 2011.

Moeller redshirted in 2006, then played the next two seasons before missing 2009 recovering from a severe a head injury. He returned to play in OSU's first five games this season before suffering a torn pectoral muscle Oct. 2 at Illinois and undergoing season-ending surgery.

The NCAA occasionally allows players a sixth year in cases of unusual medical hardship.

Moeller has proved to be a playmaker and an emotional leader. His return should help boost a secondary that will lose three senior starters -- Chimdi Chekwa, Devon Torrence and Jermale Hines.

Hey Chip,

Couldn't find a contact email, so I thought I'd try to touch base through comments.

Thought you and your readers might like this flash mob in the Ford Zone two weekends ago. A bunch of Ohio State students came out of the crowd to do the Buckeye Battle Cry around Ford's new Explorer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orRu9UBut4s

With The Game this weekend, it seemed cool to see how Buckeyes rock on Saturdays and thought your readers might enjoy it (and maybe even know someone in the video?)

Anyways, would love to hear what you think about the clip. Feel free to share it if you think Buckeye fans would like it.

Best,
Jack Ross
