The Baseball Buckeyes put 17 hits in beating Northwestern 11-1 in the Big Ten opener on Friday afternoon in the Windy City suburb of Evanston, Illinois.

Alex Wimmers picked up the win and is now 6-0; the first Ohio State starting pitcher to start the season at 6-0 since Cory Luebke began 7-0 in 2007.

Wimmers, a junior right-hander pitched seven innings, allowing six hits and one earned run while striking out five.

There were several stars of the game to support Wimmers. Cory Rupert had a four-hit day while Dan Burkhart and Ryan Dew each had three for the Buckeyes. Dew finished with three runs batted in and three runs scored and Brian DeLucia scored three runs.

The Ohio State offense gave their ace pitcher a nice lead in the top of the first inning, scoring four runs. Zach Hurley led the game off with a home run to left and Ryan Dew had a key two-run triple to center that drove in Burkhart and Michael Stephens as the Buckeyes batted around with six hits.

The Northwestern number 1, 2 and 3 batters were a combined 1-for-12.

The 15-7 Buckeyes  and Northwestern will play game 2 of the three-game series on Saturday at 2 p.m.

Springtime means Ohio State Football is Back! Day 1

Jim Tressel talks to the media (

It wasn’t too long ago that  the Buckeyes were heading off  to the 2010 Rose Bowl to play the explosive Oregon Ducks and we were all wondering  if they could stop the recent string of disappointing Bowl losses and if Terrelle Pryor would respond on the national stage and if the Buckeyes would finally get the national media off their backs?

Well, all of those questions were answered on that January 1 game in Pasadena, California: the Ducks were shut down; the bowl losses were put to a screeching halt; Terrelle Pryor performed like he was a Heisman candidate and the Buckeyes gained the national media’s respect once again.

Now, spring is upon us and OSU Football is back in the news for the rest of April and still there are questions that will have to be answered in 14 practices and the spring game on April 24 in Ohio Stadium.

One thing about Ohio State football, they remake or reload, not rebuild.  The questions center around offensive tackle, Terrelle Pryor’s knee, the defensive line and the safeties.

Expectations are very sky high coming off a fifth-straight Big Ten title, an 11-2 season, a Rose Bowl victory over Oregon and an 8-game home schedule and only 4 road games.

Who will play Left tackle to replace Jim Cordle?

This position has been a question mark for years. Jim Cordle ended up playing there out of necessity.  There are plenty of candidates in the wings: Mike Adams, Andrew Miller and Marcus Hall.  Coach Jim Tressel told us on Thursday that position aren’t really won in the spring because they have to wait for the recruits to come to camp in August.

Who replaces Kurt Coleman and Anderson Russell at safety?

Jermale Hines is one starter but there are other players to consider. Ohrian Johnson, Tyler Moeller, Jamie Woods and Nate Oliver. There is no clear cut starter amonst those players.

Is Terrelle Pryor’s left knee a concern?

This has been the talk of the town since Pryor suffered the partially torn ligament last October and had arthroscopic surgery in early February.  But it seems that Pryor is ready to participate in spring drills. But expect alot of reps from backup quarterbacks Joe Bauserman and Kenny Guiton, Jr. which can’t be all bad because they need to be ready for the fall anyway. Remember, a backup player is one injury from playing anyway.

Justin Kronauge, a senior co-captain on the number 2 Ohio State men’s tennis team, has been named Big Ten Athlete of the Week for the second time this year.  This is Kronauge’s fifth-career weekly honor.

The award brings the Buckeyes total to eight for the season, which leads the league. Justin earned the accolade February 2.

A native of Dayton, Ohio, Kronauge won four doubles matches and four singles matches to help the Buckeyes improve to 18-1 overall, defeating number 41 LSU (4-2),  number 7 Georgia (4-2), number 62 Penn State (7-0) and Cleveland State (4-0).

Kronauge is now 27-4 overall in his career in Big Ten matches. He also helped the Buckeyes improve their home win streak to 103 consecutive matches.

With the four singles wins, Kronauge is tied for second on the all-time career wins list with former Buckeye Vince Ng with 132 victories from 1999-2003.

Tennessee beats Ohio State, 76-73 to advance to the Elite Eight

compiled by the staff

Back on January 1 of this year, not much was expected of the Tennessee basketball program for the rest of the season. Their leading scorer Tyler Smith was dismissed from the team. Then to make matters worse, Brian Williams, Cameron Tatum and Melvin Goins were suspended after a gun and marijuana wer found during a traffic stop.

Then a few days later, they upset number 1 Kansas and Tennessee turns their season around and are one win from the Final Four.

Brian Williams scored the go-ahead basket on a tip-in with 32 seconds left, and J.P. Prince was relentless on Evan Turner, blocking a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer Friday night to lead the Volunteers over Ohio State 76-73 in St. Louis. The win propels Tennessee into the Elite Eight for the first time ever.

Evan Turner scored 31 points (osu)

#2 seeded Ohio State had won four of its five meetings against the Volunteers, but last night was a lost opportunity. With Kansas, Georgetown and Maryland all eliminated, the Buckeyes had a chance to advance further.

Wayne Chism finished with 22 points, 18 in the second half with 11 rebounds to fuel the Volunteers to the win.

Evan Turner, singlehandedly carried the Buckeyes with 21 of his 31 points being scored in the second half.  William Buford was the only other Ohio State player in double figures with 15 points. Jon Diebler struggled going 1 for 7 from 3-point land.

As usual, Evan Turner was asked if he was coming back for his senior year to play with Jared Sullinger and the other top-notch recruits. “I can’t give you a percentage right now, I really don’t want to go out like this,” he said.

Every Buckeye fan would hate to see Evan Turner leave for the NBA  because if he comes back to play with the new recruits, Ohio State could end up being better than this year’s 29-8 team.  Next year coach Matta should be able to play more than 2 substitutes a game off the bench. Lack of quality substitutions hurt Ohio State against Tennessee.
