    Game#1

    #2 Ohio State- 34

    Game #2

    #11 Miami (FL)- 10

    #2 Ohio State- 22

    Running the ball and defense- it's what Ohio State has always done and always will do. The Buckeyes ran for over 200 yards (including Brandon Saine's 70 yard scamper to seal the game in the 4th, one of his two TD's on the day) and held the Hurricanes to less than 1.5 yards per rush and zero third down conversions. The D set up tOSU's second touchdown by picking off Jacory Harris deep in Miami territory, then in the third quarter broke through the line to record a safety to make it 16-3. Terrelle Pryor was just 8-17 for 79 yards with a TD and an INT, however his 8 carries for 55 yards kept the chains moving for Ohio State.

    Game #3

    Ohio- 0

    #2 Ohio State- 30

    The defense once again starred for Ohio State, pitching a shutout and snagging a Pick-6 in the 2nd quarter. QB Terrelle Pryor had middling statistics once again completing 5 of 15 passes for 97 yards. 3 of his 5 completions went for touchdowns though and he took a backseat to the clock chewing ground game that ran 40 times for 184 yards. The Buckeyes were able to control the ball for 20:33 compared to the Bobcats 7:27.

    Game #4

    Eastern Michigan- 28
    at
    #2 Ohio State- 45

    A huge fourth quarter allowed the Buckeyes to overcome costly mistakes and avert what would have been a disastrous loss to lowly Eastern Michigan. QB Terrelle Pryor had a fumbled option pitch and an INT returned for TD's as the Eagles took a 21-17 lead into the 4th quarter. 21 straight unanswered points from tOSU gave them the lead for good. RB Brandon Saine was the star with over 200 yards rushing and 2 TD's.

    Great write ups so far! Looks like Ohio State is going to play a little ball control offense this year with a solid, solid running game.

    Thank you- and yes until Terrelle stop firing bullets 8 feet over his receivers heads we'll be relying on the running game.

    Game #5

    #2 Ohio State- 3

    Anyone tuning into this game might have thought they were watching an ESPN Classic replay of a game played before World War II. Nope, just some Big 10 football in the rain. tOSU's defense continued to bail out an INT-happy Terrelle Pryor and a running game that could not get moving. Even usually reliable kicker Devin Barclay was just 1/3. Pryor was able to rush 11 times for 89 yards, including two huge runs to set up the eventual game winner with :41 remaining. The Buckeyes improve to 5-0 but must drastically improve their play if they are going to survive Big Ten play.

    That sounds like one heck of a battle. I saw that score on the dynasty page and wondered what had happened.

    Both interceptions and both missed field goals ended drives that were at least 8-10 plays long. My receivers also dropped multiple big play passes. Then on the other possessions we couldn't convert on 3rd down with 4-6 yards to go. Luckily, the only time I remember Illinois crossing the 50 yard line they lost a fumble.

    Indiana- 17

    For a second straight game, Ohio St. was facing a Big 10 opponent in brutal weather conditions. The result was the exact opposite of last week's 3-0 debacle though. Despite heavy fog and icy rain, the Buckeyes offense exploded for 48 points on the defenseless Hoosiers. Indiana opened and closed the first half with big play passing touchdowns to keep it close for a little while but gave up 21 third quarter points as tOSU pulled away for good. Brandon Saine was an absolute monster carrying the ball 21 times for 333 yards and two TD's. Three of Terrelle Pryor's four completions on the afternoon went for touchdowns (all to Dane Sanzenbacher) and he also ran for one. With the Big Ten schedule about to get much tougher, the Buckeyes will need to build upon this breakout performance offensively.

    vs
    #3 Wisconsin- 31

    Game#8

    #1 Ohio State- 34
    vs
    Purdue- 3

    I can't access the stats from these games, or any of mine for that matter, so nothing to really write.


    Game#9

    #1 Ohio State- 23
    vs
    Minnesota- 35

    Tough break on the computer sim. What is bulls*** is we dropped from #1 to #13 after the game- behind even a 3 loss Miami team that we beat head to head, not to mention other multi-loss squads. Hopefully games against ranked PSU and Iowa teams give us a chance to climb back up.
