About Us

Welcome to Buckeye 50 Yard Line!  If you are a long time visitor to our site, we appreciate your continued support.  If you are new to our site, we have designed this page to tell you a little bit about our format and hope that you will not only return on a regular basis but tell your Buckeye friends about us too.


Established December 19th, 2000, the goal of our staff is to provide you with the best possible coverage of Ohio State football.  In addition, we also have Men’s Basketball and Women’s Volleyball coverage.  With this page, you can learn about our site, find out what is new and how to use the features we provide.  For those of you that have come to know, love and trust Buckeye 50, we still have the same objectives, but we are always looking for ways to make this better for you. We hope you enjoy our ever evolving site and invite your input for further improvement.

    • OLBUZZ,

      Glad you found the new site, hope you enjoy, Yes, we are in the transition from the original host (Homestead) but expect when the transition is complete, the new site will be better than ever. Yes this is the same Buckeye50 that started in December of 2000. Brent is still involved, just not as much day to day as he was in the beginning. Without his efforts and energy, we would not be where we are today.

      Go Bucks!
