We're celebrating a bit this week. BuckeyeNation turned 1 on Wednesday. And the Buckeyes got a 2014 quarterback to celebrate. Coincidence? (Yeah, probably.) We won't dig our fingers into some sticky chocolate cake, but we will keep bringing on the links in Across The Field, a regular feature on BuckeyeNation where we point you to noteworthy Buckeyes coverage here and elsewhere.
