Ohio State Arrives For Fall Camp

The defending national champions took their first step towards defending their title as the Buckeyes checked in to their fall camp hotel Sunday.

Ronda Rousey, Batman and the American flag.

All of those appeared on the shirts of various Buckeyes arriving for camp Sunday afternoon. The 2015 Ohio State team checked in to their fall camp hotel from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. today and knowing that throngs of media would be awaiting their arrival many seemed to make deliberate wardrobe choices.

The Rousey shirt belonged, of course, to Cardale Jones, who made his affinity for the fighter well known during the offseason. Now, however, it is time for Jones to get to work.

"It's definitely crunch time," Jones said. "Can't wait to get out there and see some of these young guys run around."

Some embraced the press, smiling for photographs, though Tyvis Powell playfully avoided the media with his hood up and hat low, mumbling "No hablo ingles" on his way past the cameras.

All who arrived, however, seemed ready to get the season started.

"It's my fourth year so I am pretty fired up about that," linebacker Joshua Perry said. "We've got a lot of good young players coming through so you just want to see how everything works together, you want to see all the work we put in throughout the offseason pay off."

"This is the most excited I've been for camp," senior offensive tackle Taylor Decker said, "But without being super excited because it's camp."

While the Buckeyes appear to be ready to get camp started, they know it's not supposed to be easy.
