The Blue Jackets face one of the scariest moments in recent sports history, the Buckeye football team is gearing up for next season and the Ohio State basketball team is ready for a couple of March tournaments.

The hockey world had its eyes on Dallas this week. Dallas Stars center Rich Peverley, who has a known heart condition, collapsed on the bench during a game against the Blue Jackets. Columbus Dispatch beat reporter Aaron Portzline (@aportzline) says no one knew what was going on, and that a proactive plan from the league probably saved his life. Peverly is in better condition, and it’s time for the Jackets to get back down to business.

Everyone’s favorite time of year is here. Spring. And with spring comes… Football? That’s right. Steve Brown and Thomas Bradley from WOSU’s After The Score talk with Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) of Buckeye Sports Bulletin about the Buckeyes.

But hold on. Basketball is not quite done. The Big Ten Tournament is upon us, and we’re publishing a day early to preview the tournament in Indianapolis. Steve and Thomas discuss their Big Ten Tournament brackets. What team do you have taking home the honor of Big Ten Tournament Champion?
