Wells romps, defense sacks Wisconsin


Chris Wells put the Buckeyes on his back and carried them to a 38-17 win over the Badgers. Wells ran for three scores and 169 yards on 21 carries. This game was much closer than the final score indicates, as Wisconsin had a 17-10 lead in the third quarter. That was when Wells took over. He had 90+ yards in the third quarter. His first TD covered 31 yards, his second a mere 30. He showed a great burst of speed, as well as the trademark power that we have come to expect from Wells.

On the defensive side of the ball Ohio State recorded 10 sacks, including 4 from Vernon Gholston. Officially the Badgers had 12 yards rushing on 37 carries. However, freshman Zach Brown was effective running for 63 yards. (Yards lost on sacks count against the rushing totals, and they lost nearly 50 yards on sacks.) Tight End Travis Beckum killed the Buckeyes today, catching 9 passes for 140 yards and a score. Continue reading

Carmen Ohio, a capella

Buckeye Commentary¬†brought to our attention that the Ohio State band did not travel to Penn State on Saturday. According to Buckeye lineman Kirk Barton the reason is because the last time the band went to Happy Valley, they were pelted with all types of objects, some that may have included human waste. Whether it is true or not, the band did not accompany the team, which led to an a capella version of the Alma Mater after this week’s big win. Continue reading

Tribe Falters, Bucks Roll

ALCS game one, not pretty. C.C. had all kinds of control problems while Josh Beckett had a decent night giving up only 2 runs on 4 hits with 7 strikeouts. Sebathia only worked 4 and a third giving up 8 runs on 7 hits and 5 walks. So the Indians trail the Sox 1 game to none. Bottom line: it is one game in a long series, the Tribe has looked pretty good so far in the playoffs so I am not that worried. Continue reading

Big weekend for Ohio sports

indians.gifReplace the remote batteries, make sure you have plenty of beverages and snacks because this is a big tv weekend in Cleveland. You have the Indians in California playing the Angels in a possible first round playoff preview. They start at 10:05 ET tonight, 9:05 Saturday, and 8:05 on ESPN Sunday night.

buckeye_leaves.jpgSaturday afternoon, make sure you find a spot that carries the Big Ten Network (curses upon buckeye_leaves.jpgbuckeye_leaves.jpgyour grand children Big Ten Network!) for the Buckeyes against the Akron Zips. The kick-off is slated for noon, Akron’s first points scheduled for sometime around 2:45. I’m thinking 45-3. Sounds about right. Wells goes for 175 and three scores after deciding not to go “Clarrett” on us.

ESPN’s stats crew broke down the game, and gave the edge to Pittsburgh in just about every position except Linebacker (interesting), Defensive Backs, and Special Teams. They even gave the ‘coach’ edge to Pittsburgh. Come on! The man hasn’t ever been a head coach. Wow. I would also give the edge in LB’s and DB’s to the Browns, with all due respect to Crazy Hair.

I can’t help but feel like the Browns have a great shot to win this game. Nobody gives them a chance, plus so many of the Browns are playing with a chip on their shoulder. Bottom line to me- how well can we stop their rush, and get pressure on Roethlisberger? And how will we react to Pittsburgh’s blitz packages.

Um…go Mountaineers!

First off- I hate you Big Ten Network. Not only did you keep me from watching the Buckeyes win today, but you made me miss the biggest upset in college football history. Alright, at least the funniest upset I’ve ever seen. Mighty 1AA Appalachian State goes into the big house, and beats scum 34-32. Unbelievable. Right now I can hardly believe it. There will be more later.
