    Please welcome the Buckeyes new headcoach Chris Farley
    [​IMG]

    Farley: Thank you, Thank you! Glad to be here...Holy Shnykees this is awesome!!
    Reporter: Welcome. Do you think the administration made the right decision in hiring you here at Ohio St.?
    Farley: Didnt think the suits would have me here, perhaps. Thought they would have my Derriere replaced by one of those cookie-cutter store manicans.[Farley continued his rant and one reporter captured some of this rant on camera]

    [He finished up the answer to the above question with this statement] But I guess the powers that be will keep signing my paycheck atleast until John and Jane fan stop buying tickets.
    Reporter: You are a little High strung arnt you? How will that be good for this team?
    Farley: Young fella, Im gonna twist off your head and spike it on the floor so for a nightmare you cant even imagine, I will gasp at you inside the 6 sided winds of fire, unless you move from this area, far and fast, NOW!!!!
    Farley: Where was I. Ah, its great to be one of these Buckeye things. What are those any way a glorified acorn? I cant wait to kick off this season and PLAY SOME FREAKIN FOOTBALL!!! Plus im hoping being the coach of these Buckeye things will put me in good with these woderful cheerleaders we have here on campus. I will have alot of power here and that should impress them.
    Reporter: What will you say to your players about some of the off the field issues that have been bringing this team down the last few years.
    Farley: Well these kids are probably saying to themselves, im gonna go out and GET THE WORLD BY THE TAIL AND IM GONNA WRAP IT AROUND, PULL IT DOWN, AND PUT IT IN MY POCKET!! Well im here to tell you that they are probably going to find out as they go out there that they are not going to ammount to JACK SQUAT!!! They are gonna end up eating a steady diet of government cheese and living in a van down by the river.
    Reporter: Wow that was a little harsh.
    Farley: Maam why dont you just shut your YAPPERR!!!
    Reporter: Ok, lets just change the subject. What do you plan on doing about your biggest rival the Michigan Wolverines?
    Farley: Well we are going to turn their world blacker than the inside of a coffin on a moonless night. Im going to turn on some ROLLING STONES OVER THE FREAKING LOUD SPEAKERS AND WE ARE GOING TO DESTROY THEM!!!
    Reporter: Well they do have a really good team and dont forget about Denard Robinson.
    Farley: ...WELL, LA DI FRICKEN DAAA!!!! [Farley knocked over the podium and stormed out the room]

    Defense Comes to Play
    [​IMG]

    The Buckeyes defense finally showed up in a big way. The game remained close throughout the first half and was scoreless through the entire 1st quarter. Cal had a promising drive in the 1st quarter, but their scoring chances were erased when Bradley Robey snatched the ball out of the air at the one yard line. Both teams scored towards the end of the 2nd quarter, but it was Ohio St. that took the lead on a 9 yrd touchdown run by Carlos Hyde right before the half.
    Cal had another very promising drive that would of tied the game up at 14 points a piece, but CJ Barnett layed a devistating hit on a scrambling Zach Maynard that caused a fumble. Barnett recovred the fumble and pretty much turned the game around for Ohio St. Bradley Robey was able to pick the ball off two more times and gave himself 3 picks for the day. Big fella Johnathin Hankins had two sacks on the day and was a force throughout the entire game. Maynard had 4 turnovers all on his own during the game.
    Ohio State's offense continues to be very balanced and seems to be content on dinking and dunking the ball down the field. Every now and then Coach Farley calls up a trick play or two, but tends to be, surprisingly, more conservative at this junction of this coaching career.

    Emotionless Buckeye Defense Causes Coach to Lose it
    [​IMG]
    Ohio St. - 38
    UAB - 21
    Coach Farley seemed out of it after the game against UAB. Slurred words and interesting looking facial expressions were about all reporters got at the podium. Players reported that he went nuts after the defenses lack luster play Saturday. He ranted soley at the defense for a solid 30 minutes, went to his office for a while, and came out to the podium. He either lost it in there or he tossed back a couple of bourbon and cokes. The A.D. at Ohio State declined to comment on the situation at this time.
    The scoulding the players recieved by their coach was well warranted. UAB was able to thrash the buckeye defense for 284 yards out gaining the buckeye offense by 8 yards. Fans were irate that such a small school could come into their house and outperform the buckeye offense, even if it was only by a slight margin. Back-up RB Greg Franklin averaged 9.1 ypc and stormed into the endzone twice unscathed. Hankins is still the only D-lineman able to apply consistant pressure on the QBs. He was held into check most of this game, but made a huge play when he sacked Johnathan Perry in the endzone for a safety.

    The offense was pretty stale throughout the game. It never seemed to get into a rhythm and constant pressure was placed Miller who was sacked 6 times during the game. Both Hyde and Hall played extremely well when they actually got the football. J. Hall even returned the kickoff 95 yards for a score. Halls return was huge and exciting, but Hyde stole the show because his physical running style gave the crowd big hits they were missing from the buckeye defense.
    Somehow the Buckeyes survived a scare and came out with a win while playing emotionless. Fans of Ohio St. can only hope they were looking ahead to next weeks game at Michigan State. If that is the case Michigan State better watch out because the Buckeyes saved alot of intensity for that game. Hopefully everything is ok with coach Farley and he cant straighten himself up as he gets this team on the right track.

    Offense Plays Safe and Defense Plays Strong In a Big Win
    [​IMG]
    The buckeyes came out ready to play saturday. They didnt do anything spectacular, but they did just enough to get the victory. "We are focusing on the small things right now. When we are a more complete team we will take more chances and try to have more big plays, " said head coach Chris Farley. Taking care of the small things in the game against Nebraska is exactly what Ohio State was able to do. They had zero penalties and zero turnovers. The possesion difference was a full seven minutes more than the oppossing team. Coach Farley was also content with dinking and dunking down the field. He never really attacked with the deep ball. One of the few attacks down field came off a play action pass in the second quarter. Miller was able to hit Kevin Smith for a 28 yard TD after lulling the Nebraska secondary to sleep with all the short passes and the running game. "One of the main reasons we didnt take many shots down field was because Carlos Hyde was running with a purpose today and he was punishing those defenders," said Coach Farley when asked about the boring offensive attack. Hyde finished the game with 85 yards and a TD. There were two very noticable plays during todays game where his determination and pure athletic ability were the only two reason he was not stopped for a loss. One play came on a crucial 3rd down where two guys hit him in the back field and he some how stumbled forward and reached across the line to pick up the first down. Miller was pretty excited about that play, " I thought he was stopped for sure. Both defensive player hit him pretty hard and my man still got the first down. He still had one riding on his back. Its nice to see someone like Hyde step up and play big while Hill is out with his injuries." Hyde also added a 39 yard run where he broke numerous tackles and broke a couple of ankles.​
    [​IMG] Carlos Hyde running strong on the Buckeyes 1st TD.​
    The defense played huge throughout the game. They were able to hold powerful RB, R. Burkhead to just 2.7 ypc on 10 attempts. Burkhead is an extremely powerful RB and the Ohio St. defense was able to hit him hard and wrap up well becasue he was unable to break hardly any tackles. The secondary stepped up big as well. They played those recievers tight. They made some amazing pass break ups throughout the day. Pass deflections could have been close to double digits. The defense was able to hold Nebraska to 184 yards of total offense. ​
    The Buckeyes played very well, but im not sure they can take all of the credit for that big win. Martinez and Co. came out flat. The defense had trouble wrapping up the majority of the game. Its like they played strong for 1st and 2nd down and when 3rd down finally came up they just zoned out and forgot how to play. Martinez played the game exceptionally well which is expected because he is such a phenomenal athlete. The problem was his WRs. They dropped a ton of great passes from Martinez. They dropped some when they were wide open. Im sure hes fired up over their lack of effort. Staying later this week after practice to play a little throw and catch is something im sure they were already planning on the ride home. Nebraska still had plenty of plays to be excited about like the 67 yard bomb to Jamal Turner with about 3 minutes left in the game. The issue was that everytime they got a drive going and started moving the ball there was a dropped pass, a fumble, or anything else that could have happend to stall the drive. ​
    BigBodySS Great game man! You are probably the most SIM player I have played so far. It was a very enjoyable game. Now you just have to get your recievers to catch for you lol. Good luck the rest of the way.​

    Ohio State 2013 season preview
    QB
    Braxton Miller returns as the starter for the 2013 season. He looks to improve on his sophmore campaign where he passed for 2903 yards, 22 TDs, and 14 INTs. Coach Farley will be implementing a more option based attack this year. He is doing this to keep defensive teams off balance to try and cut down on some of the sacks that Miller took last year. Miller was sacked 46 times last season. Backing up Miller will be Senior Kenny Guiton and RS freshman Cardale Jones. Both freshman will RS this season. Stud Athlete Jake Davis will take this season to learn the playbook so that he can possibly take over next season. He is very green, but with his athleticism the upside is amazing.
    RB
    Last seasons backup, Carlos Hyde, is the sure starter this year. As backup last year he averaged 4.3 ypc and gained 530 yards on the ground, scoring 5 times. The backup to Hyde is up in the air. It all depends on who wants it more. Jr. Rod Smith, Sr. Adam Homan, and Rs Fr. Brionte Dunn are all fighting for the job as Ohios backup. Two freshman FBs will split time blocking for Hyde and Miller.
    WR
    WR is a solid group for the buckeyes. Devin Smith returns after a very solid sophmore season. Farley expects him to pick up right where he left off. The #2 WR will be Philly Brown. Both starting WRs had more than 5 TDs last season. Fields who had 7 TDS last year has fallen down the depth chart. Jr Evan Spencer will be the teams 3rd option at wideout simply because his hands are more reliable than Fields. Newcomer Pat Moore will redshirt this season because the depth chart is very crowded at this position.
    TE
    TE is an area of concern for the buckeyes. They lost NFL bound Stoneburner, some players to transfers, and failed to sign any TEs during the offseason. The depth at TE is only 2 deep. Sophmore Nick Vannett looks very capable of replacing Stoneburner as a reciver, but his blocking ability will be missed. The other TE is Jr. Jeff Heuerman. He knows the system well and has alot of heart. Coach Farley will probably be very careful this season about running two TE sets because he cant afford to lose either one of his TEs.
    OL
    The OL is a very strong unit for the buckeyes. It is anchored by 4 Seniors. 4 star true freshman James Jenkins will also start at right tackle. He has really impressed coaches this offseason. He has worked hard and really improved alot.
    DL
    The DL returns two seniors at DT. Hankins was a monster last season with 14.5 sacks. At DE are two players that have not started a single down. Jr. Michael Bennett and Soph. Chase Farris.
    LB
    The Buckeyes return starters Ryan Shazier and Curtis Grant. Grant returns as the teams leading tackler and will be one of the defensive captains. At ROLB true freshman, Lynn Maddox, was named the starter this offseason. He is a little on the slower side, but his football IQ is out of this world. He is also a very physical hitter. If anyone of these startes go down the talent drop off is significant. The buckeyes better hope these guys stay healthy and last the season.
    CB
    The number one and number two CBs both saw solid playing throughout the 2012 season. Bradley Robey will be the number one corner and across the field from him will be Doran Grant. Junior Adam Griffin is in a close battle with necomer Mighty Mouse for the first backup option at CB. A decision will not be made until the first game according to Coach Farley.
    FS/SS
    Team leader and defensive captain, CJ Barnett, returns as the SS for the Buckeyes. Barnett had a solid Junior campaign, but underachieved according to some fans. He himself says that he wasnt fully focused last season and that he has rededicated himself to the team and the sport of football. At FS is senior Christian Bryant and he will be backed by freshman Paul Meyers.
    ST
    Senior kicker Drew Basil will give coach Farley plenty of comfort throughout the season. He made 87 percent of his FG last season. The Buckeyes have freshman Donnie Baker at punter. The main retrun man is WR Philly Brown and the other option will be freshman safety Paul Meyers.
