Ohio StateUrban Meyer is attempting to replace quite a bit of talent this summer. His Ohio State football team lost 15 players to the NFL, but the show goes on in Columbus, Ohio, which will likely still be home to a top 10 team. The Buckeyes will still be a top 10 team because Meyer has been recruiting at an extremely high level and there are plenty of of four and five-star prospects ready to step in. Those young players have apparently been performing fairly well this offseason. Ohio State released today a hype video titled, “Young Bucks On The Grind.” Check it out:15 #Buckeyes gone to the #NFL?

The mission of The Blue Card, to help survivors live their remaining years in dignity, is incredibly time-sensitive as at least 50 percent of Holocaust survivors alive today will pass away within the next 10 to 20 years. We greatly appreciate the work of this year’s honorees, and are looking to the larger community to help spread awareness about those still in need.”For more information visit: www.bluecardfund.org.Last year, The Blue Card’s 2015 Annual Benefit honored Nobel Peace Prize laureate, human rights activist and Holocaust survivor the late Elie Wiesel, and was presented by Academy Award winner Michael Douglas and author and journalist Kati Marton.
