COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State Buckeyes opened their 2013 fall camp season with a pair of practices at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center’s first-class practice facility: the Harmon Family Football Park. Second-year head coach Urban Meyer and his coaching staff worked with 35 freshmen (and a few inexperienced upperclassmen) at an 8:45 a.m. practice and then returned to the fields for a 3:05 p.m. practice with the veterans.
It was a glorious day for practice. At 2 p.m. it was a San Diego-like 74 degrees under hazy sunshine, some whispers of clouds and at times, Lake Superior-blue skies.
Some numbers: the 105-man roster at fall camp includes 17 offensive linemen, 16 defensive linemen, 14 receivers and 12 linebackers within the four largest position groups.
When the players arrived at the Woody this morning they had breakfast in the player’s lounge and then on the way to their locker room they walked by their new Gatorade Fuel Bar, which wasn’t completed when they left for their short break on Wednesday. The fuel bar features all stainless steel cabinets and appliances, an eight-stool seating area, five leather recliners, two rather large HD flat screen televisions and ample display and storage space for nutrition/energy bars and sports fuel drinks, shakes and thirst quenchers.
