    Ohio State Buckeyes

    2010-2011 Season Preview

    Overview
    Ohio State has dominated the Big 10 but struggled in recent national bowl games. Fortunately Buckeyes’ fans watched their team dominate favorite Oregon in the last Rose Bowl. This year’s team returns most of the key players on offense and defense. For this reason the team is expected to compete for not only the Big 10 title but also be in contention for the national title. The success or failure of the team will fall mostly on the arm and legs of quarterback Terrelle Pryor. His maturation at quarterback will either drive Ohio State to next level or bring that progress to a screeching halt.

    Offense
    The key component of this offense has and will be Pryor. His ability to run the football has never been questioned but his decision making at QB have been a cause for concern. This is Pryor’s third full season at Ohio State and he has few excuses to fail. Accompanying Pryor in the backfield will be “boom and zoom†combination of Dan Herron and Brandon Saine. The two will split carries this season, which hopefully will keep both backs running at full pace for the entire season. Pryor also has talented receivers, led by junior DeVier Posey and senior Dane Sanzenbacher. Posey had 825 yards receiving last season and these numbers should improve if the team passes more this season. Tight Jake Stoneburner is also expected to contribute to the passing game this season. The offensive line returns four of five starters. Justin Boren is the best player on offensive line but the team has talented players at every position. JB Shuagrts and Michael Brewster are juniors and have developed into very talented offensive linemen. The group should buy Pryor time and open holes for the running game.

    Defense
    Cameron Heyward is the leader on the other side of the ball. Heyward decided to pass on NFL Draft and return for his senior season, stating he didn’t want to miss out on his time at OSU. Heyward’s play this season could help elevate his draft status and he is currently projected as a first round pick. Teammate Thadius Gibson did leave for NFL Draft but Nathan Williams is ready to step in as a starter. The mid tier is probably OSUs greatest defensive strength with Ross Homan and Brian Rolle returning. Etienne Sabino is expected to fill in other starting spot but the Buckeyes have depth behind those three. Chimidi Chekwa leads the back four and he will be joined by Devon Torrence at cornerback position. The Buckeyes will be replacing Kurt Coleman and Anderson Russell at the safety spots this season. Jermale Hines is expected to fill the strong safety spot and Orihan Johnson is expected to be starting free safety. Depth is not an issue for Ohio State in secondary and the Buckeyes have some very talented incoming freshmen in this group.

    Expectations
    Anything less than a National Championship will be a disappointment for this Ohio State team, but the first focus is always the Big 10 crown. Iowa is expected to be the Buckeyes toughest foe this season but Penn State and Wisconsin could also be dangerous this season. The other big thing for Ohio State is avoiding upsets that have plagued them in past seasons, such as Purdue loss last season.

    Week 1

    Ohio State 68
    Notre Dame 3

    This was brutal from the start and ND played one of the worst first halves in college football history. Star CB Chekwa grabbed not one but two pick-6 touchowns courtesy of Crist. ND also fumbled the ball away a few times in first half, each time leading to a short field TD for Ohio State. On offense Pryor played good in limited time and he found Sanzenbacher for two touchdown passes. Brandon Saine got the nod at starting tailback and he punched in a couple scores. He unfortunately suffered an injury early in the game but he is expected to be at full strength for the next game. The starters would come out late in the second quarter but damage was already done. To make matters worse Guiton hooked up with Washinton for a long score before half, giving OSU a 52-3 halftime lead. They pounded the rock the remainder of the game and Berry put together one hell of a game. He carried it 13 times for 136 yards.

    By the end of the game Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly looked like he was regretting his decision to leave Cincinnati.

    Offensive MVP: Berry (didn't score but he passed up a sure TD late in game)

    Defensive MVP: Chekwa (2 interceptions for TD and he sat entire second half)

    Week 2

    Ohio State 21
    Clemson 6

    The game did not start off well for Ohio State. On the first play from scrimmage Saine fumbled a ball running up the middle. Clemson recovered and their offense marched it inside the 5 yard line. After 3 straight stops Ohio State managed to hold Clemson to just a field goal and the confidence level in the defense sky rocketed. The defense only allowed one more field goal for the remainder of this game and Clemson managed just 169 yards total offense. Clemson HB Harper shredded Iowa's defense in week 1 but the Buckeyes didn't let him get rolling. He finished with just 39 yards on 17 carries. Clemson QB Parker also struggled in this game, completing just 27% of his passes and throwing 2 interceptions. His receiving crew was credited with 4 drops but the number seemed higher during the actual game.

    Back to the offensive side of the ball, Saine bounced back from the early fumble by scoring 3 TD. He didn't have a huge day in terms of yardage, 61 yards, but he picked up some key first downs in this game. He was helped out on ground by Herron who carried it 10 times for 56 yards. The running game needed to do most of the heavy lifting, as Pryor had a terrible game. He threw for just 99 yards, completed less than 50% of his attempts and threw an interception. Ohio State TE Stoneburner was the team's most reliable receiver in this game, catching 4 passes for 63 yards.

    Week 3

    Ohio State 31
    Boise State 0

    The Buckeye defense had another great outing, shutting out an explosive Boise State team. This effort was a combination of pressure by front 4 (3 sacks, numerous pressures) and the secondary (3 interceptions, 9 deflections). Boise QB Moore had an awful game, throwing for under 100 yards and 3 TD. He completed just 38% of his passes in this match. On the offensive side the Buckeyes were not explosive but they did manage 4 TD drives in this game. HB Saine scored 3 of those 4 touchdowns, including a 99 yard TD run. He finished with 149 yards on 15 carries. Pryor also had a decent game for 182 yards and 1 TD, but he lost 2 fumbles in this game and only finished with 2 yards rushing.

    Next up for Ohio State is a battle with in-state foe Cincinnati. Currently the Bearcats are undefeated and ranked #22 in the country. After the Cincinnati match Ohio State moves on to its Big 10 schedule with matches against Illinois and Indiana.

    Week 6

    Ohio State knew they would need to play this game without starting tailback Brandon Saines but the Buckeyes also lost Terrelle Pryor and Devon Torrence early this match. Backup quarterback Joe Bauserman came in for the second quarter and he completed 4 of 5 passes for 2 touchdowns. Both TD passes went to starting WR Devier Posey who grabbed 6 catches for 150 yards and 2 TD. As for running back, Dan Herron didn't get much of an opportunity in this game, but Jamal Berry did get some chances and he made those chances count. Berry rushed for over 100 yards and scored 3 touchdowns, all 3 TD came in the third quarter, On defensive side Cameron Heyward and Nate Williams had big games up front and Chekwa picked off another pass. He had several other opportunities but suffered from a case of the drops. Johnson and Everage picked up fumbles for Ohio State.

    Offensive Player of the Game: DeVier Posey 6 reception 150 yards 2 TD

    Week 7

    [​IMG]

    Ohio State lays another beat down on a Big 10 school. This time the victim was the Wisconsin Badgers. Bruising back John Clay did a lot of talking before the match but he was no match for the Buckeyes defense. Clay finished with 87 yards on 26 carries, just 3.3 yards per carry. A Scott Tolzien pass to Nick Toon was the only score by Wisconsin. Ohio State CB Chekwa was beaten badly on that play. Toon was Wisconsin's best player in this game, grabbing 4 catches for 108 yards. As for the rest of Wisconsin's offense, they made some mistakes that really hurt them. The first big play was an attempted screen pass to Clay that was picked off by Cameron Heyward. Heyward grabbed the pick and ran it for a long TD just as the first half ended. OSU CB Donnie Everage also grabbed a pick six in this game.

    On the offensive side, Ohio State had a really good first half. Terrelle Pryor didn't miss many passes in the first two quarters of this game. He hooked up with Dane Sanzenbacher and Taurian Washington for TD passes early in the game. On the ground Saine had a decent game, 13 carries 69 yards and 1 TD. DeVier Posey also added a score on the ground. In the second half Pryor missed some receivers and threw his only pick of the game, but the game was already decided by that point. He sat out the fourth quarter and watched Kenny Guiton hook up with Duron Carter for a 78 yard TD pass.

    Next up for Ohio State is a match with Purdue at home, followed by a road game in Minnesota.

    Buckeyes started off slow, scoring just 3 points in first quarter, but that would change in the second quarter. Boom Herron scored the first touchdown for Ohio State, scoring from 20 yards out. On the first Purdue possession after this TD the Buckeyes would score again on a Brian Rolle pick six. Then to finish out the half the Buckeyes scored two more touchdowns, both deep passes from Pryor to Posey. After half Saine would score a 33 yard rush TD on Buckeyes opening drive and the main offensive starters were rested for the remainder of this game. All together Ohio State rushed for 309 yards, led by backup HB Jordan Hall with 92 yards.

    On the defensive side of the ball the Buckeyes were led by their front 7. Heyward got another sacks and he was credited with 3 tackles for a loss. Linebacker Sabino led the Bucks in tackles with 10 (7 solo, 3 assisted). Rolle also had 4 solo tackles to go with his interception touchdown. The only other turnover that Ohio State grabbed was an interception by Devon Torrence.

    Next up for Ohio State is a game with Minnesota followed by games against Iowa, Penn State and Michigan. This is the stretch that will determine the Big 10 champion. Ohio State will need to play its best football of the season to survive this stretch.

    Offensive Player of the Game: DeVier Posey 3 catches 150 yards 2 TD

    Defensive Player of the Game: Brian Rolle 4 solo tackles 1 interception 1 TD

    Interesting stat: Ohio State has scored 198 points in the second quarter this season in 8 games. This is an average of almost 25 points per game. Twice the Buckeyes were held to below 20 (14 against Clemson, 17 against Boise State) and the high for the season is 31 against Cincinnati.

    This was not a good offensive game for Ohio State but they did enough to secure the win. Terrelle Pryor had another mediocre performance, not uncommon for him. He completed just 7 of 18 pass attempts but he avoided throwing any interceptions. He did get some assistance from Gophers who dropped several poorly thrown passes. The ground game was where Ohio State did most of its damage. Saine carried it 16 times for 112 yards, including a touchdown. Pryor (28 yards) and Herron (41 yards) also helped out the team. As for the receivers, DeVier Posey had another huge game. He caught 4 passes for 121 yards, including a 54 yard touchdown just before half.

    On the defensive side Ohio State played solid run defense but struggled against the pass. Duane Bennett carried it 16 times for just 31 yards. Adam Weber had a much better day through the air, completing 27 passes for 322 yards. The Gophers struggled to capitalize on these yards. They missed a pair of field goals and were stopped twice on fourth down attempts late in the game. Weber also threw an interception in the game but the coaches at Minnesota should still be happy with his performance.

    Ohio State's conference championship goal is far from being reached. The Buckeyes get to rest up in week 10 before a brutal finish to the conference schedule. They will take on Penn State in Columbus and then travel to Iowa to take on the Hawkeyes. There also is that matchup at the end of the season against the Michigan Wolverines but Rich Rod will likely take another beating in that match.

    Offensive player of the game: Saine 16 carries 112 yards 1 TD

    Defensive player of the game: Devon Torrence 1 tackle 1 interception

    Week 12

    Ohio State 45
    Iowa 13

    Ohio State rebounded from its loss to Penn State by beating the #8 Iowa Hawkeyes. The offense focused on the run in this game and it proved to be a successful tactic. Ohio State's leading half backs were Saine (16 carries 92 yards 1 TD) and Herron 11 carries 63 yards. Quarterback Terrell Pryor also broke off some big runs and he finished with 5 carries for 61 yards, including a 9 yard TD. Pryor also had a solid, unspectacular game in terms of passing the ball. He completed 13 of 20 passes, and threw 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Sanzenbacher and Stoneburned were recipients of Pryor TD passes. Sanzenbacher also grabbed a TD from backup QB Bauserman, who spelled Pryor after a long run play.

    The Buckeyes defense was beat twice on big passing plays by Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi. On the Hawkeyes' first drive Stanzi hooked up witj WR Chaney for a 61 yard TD. Ohio State was blitzing and Chaney beat the safety in one-on-one coverage. The second big play occurred in the third quarter. Stanzi hit WR McNutt despite a diving attempt by OSU CB Torrence. McNutt made a few Buckeyes miss and got to the endzone. Aside from those plays the Ohio State secondary was solid. Stanzi completed just 50% of his passes and that number was inflated by playing against backups in part of the 3rd and all of the 4th quarter. Stanzi also was sacked a few times in this game, including 2 by Cameron Heyward.

    Buckeyes have one last game to finish up the season and it is the matchup with arch-rival Michigan. A win will likely secure a BCS bowl bid but the loss to Penn State will likely keep them from the championship game.

    Offensive player of the game: Pryor 13-20 155 yards 2 TD/0 INT; 5 carries 61 yards 1 TD

    Defensive player of the game: Heyward 2 solo tackles 2 tackles for loss 2 sacks

    Week 13

    Ohio State continues the recent trend of annihilating Michigan. It was a team effort in this game as both the offense and defense put together stellar efforts. On the offensive side Pryor had easily his biggest passing game of the season completing 24 passes on 39 attempts for 407 yards. Three of the completions went for touchdowns, including a 69 yard bomb to Washington. That pass was Washington's 2nd TD of the game and he led the team with 6 receptions and 154 yards receiving. Sanzenbacher was on the receiving end of the other Pryor TD pass. Saine also got into the scoring mix, rushing for 3 touchdowns. He had a solid effort in this game with 18 carries for 121 yards.

    On the defensive side the Buckeyes gave up a couple passing touchdowns to Michigan'ss backup QB Robinson but they also forced 3 interceptions. Evege grabbed 2 of the picks and he also led the team with 8 solo tackles. Chekwa grabbed the other pick, his 8th on the season. This ties him for the lead with Alabama's Scott . Rolle also continued to play solid defense up the middle, adding 5 more solo tackles. He is ranked in the top 5 in that category.

    Ohio State's regular season is done and the Buckeyes await their opponent in the upcoming bowl. Bowl projections have the Buckeyes squaring off with the winner of the Big East (Rutgers currently leading) in the Fiesta Bowl.

    The crown jewel of this class is Larry Walters who ESPN rated as the top prospect in this class. He is likely the heir apparent to Terrell Pryor after this season despite being a completely different style of quarterback. Walters will not do much with his legs but he has a cannon arm with pinpoint precision.

    The biggest disappointment in the class is :5stars: recruit Gerald Harris. The loss of Posey, Sanzenbacher and Washington left OSU very thin at wide receiver. Harris was expected to start right away but Ohio State may line tight end Stoneburner as the 5th WR in spread formations. Carter and Fields are the only returning Buckeye wide receivers who caught a pass last season.

    Week 10

    [​IMG]

    Pryor finally remembered he was once regarded as a good QB. He had an unbelievably efficient game completing 8 of 10 passes for 199 yards and 5 TD. More importantly he did not turn the ball over. Stoneburner was recipient of 2 TD passes, while Carter, Jackson and Fields caught 1 each. Berry also had a big game on the ground, rushing for 151 and 1 TD. He may have passed Herron on the depth chart after this performance. Freshman Roderick Smith also got into the mix, he added 63 yards and a TD.

    The defense didn't force many turnovers, just a single fumble recovery, but they harassed Northwestern all game. The bounces went the Wildcats way but they fumbled at least 6 times in this game. NW QB Persea passed for 180 but had -40 rushing thanks to QB sacks. HB Fields had just 36 yards on 18 carries so he had little success against OSU front 7.

    Next up is another gimme versus Purdue. After that Ohio State takes on Iowa and Michigan, so they have some work to do at the end of the season. There also is the season finale against Oklahoma.

    Offensive Player of the Game: Pryor 8-10 199 5/0; 4 carries 10 yards

    Offense

    Starting QB Terrell Pryor had another shaky day passing the ball. He threw a couple early picks and then left early with an injury. He is expected to return next week but Joe Bauserman made sure the Buckeyes would get past Purdue. Bauserman passed for 225 and a TD, and added 2 short scores on the ground. Chris Fields had a big day with 139 yards and a TD. Tight end Jake Stoneburner also continued his strong season, catching 7 passes for 104 yards and a TD. On the ground Herron had another so-so performance with 19 carries for 78 yards. He did add a touchdown.

    Offensive Player of the Game: Joe Bauserman 13-25 227 1 TD/0 INT; 3 carries 26 yards 2 TD

    Defense

    The Buckeyes defense was solid in this contest. They only forced 1 turnover, an interception by Nate Oliver, but gave up just over 200 yards total offense. Purdue running back Ralph Bolden needed 15 carries to rush for 54 yards. Caleb TerBush didn't have much success through air. He completed 21 of 32 passes but tallied just 155 yards. The Buckeyes also sacked TerBush twice in this game.

    Defensive Player of the Game: Etienne Sabino 7 tackles 1 sack and Nathan Williams 5 tackles 1 sack

    Purdue 10
