    The Lantern (Ohio State Reports)

    The Ohio State University Preseason Report


    [​IMG]

    The sophomore 6'6" 235 lb. Terrelle Pryor looks to lead The Ohio State offense with his cannon of an arm and 4.33 40 speed. Pryor will have receivers Devier Posey, Dane Sanzenbacher, and Ray Small leading the charge of the passing attack. As for the run game, Daniel "Boom" Herron and Brandon "Zoom" Saine will control the majority of carries. Jamaal Berry the freshman speedster looks to grab a few carries as well.

    As for the defensive side of the ball a team that lost leaders the likes of Marcus Freeman, Michael Jenkins, and James Laurinaitis looks to Senior SS Kurt Coleman for leadership. The Defensive line carries a plethra of DT and DE headed by Thaddeus Gibson the Junior out of Euclid, OH.

    The young Ohio State team looks to be poised for another Big Ten title run but the non-conference schedule is brutal with games on the road against, West Virginia, USC, and Miami. Meanwhile the two toughest games of the year on the conference schedule are at the Big House in Ann Arbor, and in Happy Valley for Penn State. Ohio State finds solace in it's home game vs. LSU.

    No matter how young the team is though they always have one man to look to, The Man who brought back Sweater Vests.

    First Member of The Ohio State 2009 Recruiting class announced!

    Making his committment almost immediately Greg Pennington the Hard Hitting Free Safety out of Fort McKinley, Ohio, signed with the Buckeyes. He said his decision was based off Coach Tressel's experience, and the prestige of the Big Ten.

    The 6'2" 201 pounder looks to be laying lumber on crossing routes, next year in the shoe as he will enroll for the spring and begin working out with the team at that time.

    Ohio State overcomes early mistakes, wins in Morganstown

    Ohio State 35, West Virginia 21

    The Ohio State Buckeyes were down 7-0 before you knew it with a pick by Terrelle Pryor and a TD pass by Jarrett Brown. Not to be denied Pryor led his team down the field for a TD ending with a 12 yard pass to Jake Ballard the senior TE. The offenses ability to bounce back motivated the defense who forced a three and out and got the ball back for a second TD this one going to sure handed sophomore Dane Sazenbacher. The defense continued it's relentlessness forcing a fumble and getting a FG out of it. With the 17-7 lead Ohio State did not back off and Anderson Russell, the senior FS, had a pick six all but silencing the fans in Morganstown. However, Jarret Brown was not pleased and led his team to a TD as the half ended to put West Virginia within ten.

    The Second half sported more defense then the first. Neither defense gave up much ground at all the only score of the third quarter was a FG by the Buckeyes. But being 27-14 heading into the fourth The Mountaineers begand to move the ball effectively and scored early in the 4th to make it 27-21. After and embarrassing series Ohio State was forced to punt and did so causing a touchback. the field position was exactly what Ohio State needed as they forced a 4th and inches play the senior MLB Austin Spitler ended in a hurry when he rapped up Noel Devine before he could get to the line. While attempting to run the clock down Boom Herron found the endzone and Jake Ballard's reception gave the Buckeyes the 2 point conversion for the 14 point lead. This was all the Buckeyes needed as DT Doug Worthington had an interception to seal the game.

    Players of the game.
    Offense:
    Jarrett Brown(WVU) 29-46 294 yds 3 TD 2 INT
    Defense
    Doug Worthington(OSU) 5 TKs 4 TFL 1 SK 1 INT

    Ohio State goes back to the Shoe next week to face USC.

    Young Offense not prepared for USC Defense.

    USC 33, OSU 13

    The big game feel was in the air and the Buckeyes came out nice early executing well. On the first run however, Boom Herron was done for the game. He has since been cleared by doctors and will return to face LSU next week. Ohio State fed off the crowd and found it's was into an early 10-0 lead. That would be all the fun for the Ohio State fans as USC went on to outscore the Buckeyes 33-3 the rest of the way.

    Ohio States offensive line was overmatched and Pryor was sacked 5 times. He forced bad passes going 9/18 with 1 TD and 1 INT. Brandon Saine was able to find a groove with 11 carries for 110 yards including his early 58 YD TD run. The defense played well but being on the field for 18:30 compared to the 10 minutes it was resting proved to be too much for them and ultimately wore on them.

    Players of the Game:
    Offense- Brandon Saine- 110 yds 1 TD
    Defense- Austin Spitler- 14 Tackles 1 TFL

    Battle of Young QB's favors Pryor

    Ohio State 43 LSU 29

    While LSU couldn't get a ground game going early Ohio State used a little trickery and had Ray Small find the endzone on a reciever option from 22 yards out. The Buckeyes built on this lead and looked to have a 17-0 lead going into the half but Jefferson led a quick drive and made it 17-7 with 15 seconds left in the half.

    Ohio State's balanced offense proved to be too much for LSU's defense as Pryor passed for 3 TDs and 200 yards and Herron, Saine and Pryor all were 70+ yard runners on the day. Most of Pryor's yards came on the QB blast play broken for a mean 70 yards and the score capping a 20 point 3rd and giving Ohio State a 36-14 lead at the time. Saine would score while running out the clock and seal LSU's fate.

    Players of the Game
    Pryor 217 yds and 3 TDs on 15/20 passing 71 yards and 1 TD Rushing
    Moeller 10 Tks 1 TFL

    Balanced run game dominates Illini

    Ohio State did not have a 100 yard rusher for the second straight game. Boom Herron only pulled 98 yards before the 4th quarter where the whole first team was benched. Ohio State was up 41-3 at this point. Trying to show sportsmanship the Buckeyes threw only 6 passes the second half but big gains by Saine and Berry prevented the game from running out the clock. Thaddeus Gibson also returned a fumble for a TD.

    Players of the Game:
    Offense: The entire offensive line. Ohio State ran the ball 41 times for 239 yards and allowed no sacks on the 22 pass plays.

    Defense: Tyler Moeller: 4 Tackles 2 FL 1 SK and 1 FR Moeller only had 4 tackles but it seemed everyone was on third down.

    So I have now taken over for my beloved Buckeyes!

    My first game recap is the Big one.

    Ohio State 20 - Michigan 3

    This game was a defensive struggle all the way around. Michigan played very solid defense except for a big play that really put separation between the us in the 4th quarter. Daniel "Boom" Herron broke a 68 yard td run to go up 17-3 and salt the game way. Boom was also the player of the game with 23 carries for 167 yards and 2 td. Michigan struggled on offense with Ohio State suffocating the offensive line and making a bunch of tackles behind the line of scrimmage. It looked like Michigan was missing their starting qb Tate Forcier.

    Either way, my hat goes off to Bondzai. He played a good game with an over matched team and hung in there. Ohio State is now 7-4 (?) and travels to South Florida for the season finale against Miami.
