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.

compiled by the staff

LeBron James Cleveland (file)

Mo Williams sank four free throws in the final 12.8 seconds as the Cleveland Cavaliers held on for 101-98 win over the most-improved team in the NBA this season, the Milwaukee Bucks.  The Wednesday night’s contest showed that Milwaukee can be a dangerous team in the upcoming playoffs.

LeBron James scored 23 points and Mo Williams put in 21 for Cleveland, who have won 10 of their last 11 and are closing in on the league’s best record and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

John Salmons scored 28 and Andrew Bogut had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Bucks, who attempted just nine free throws, none in the all important fourth quarter. The Cavaliers shot 45 free throws.

The first football game in the new Meadowlands Stadium will be between the two occupants of the $1.6 billion facility.

The NFL announced Wednesday that the Giants and Jets will play the first game August 16 when they meet Monday night in the preseason opener for both teams.

The Jets and Giants traditionally play the second-to-last preseason game against each other, but with the new stadium both teams wanted to be the first to play in it.

The Giants will play the first regular season game in the new stadium on September 12.  The Jets will open their regular season with the first Monday night game in the new stadium.

That decision caused much controversy and debate.

Both New York teams also wanted to play the first regular-season game at the new stadium.  But that became a problem since the Giants and Jets are not on each other’s schedule, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell intervened and flipped a coin to determine which would play first at the new stadium.

The Giants won the toss, but the Jets ownership was upset that a representative from their team was not present when the coin was flipped.

In other NFL news, the Dallas Cowboys and the Cincinnati Bengals will play in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game to open the NFL’s preseason schedule in Canton, Ohio on August 8.

North end of Crew Stadium (

The Crew Soccer Academy 17/18 squad continued its recent success with another impressive performance last Saturday (March 27), as it defeated the U.S. Under-17 National Team, 3-1, at Crew Stadium prior to the first team’s 2-0 victory over Toronto FC in First Kick 2010.

After neither side was able to break through in the match’s first half hour, CSA drew first blood thanks to Matt Walker’s strike in the 32nd minute.  The Crew then doubled its lead shortly thereafter on a Kyle Culbertson penalty-kick goal in the 38th minute.  The U.S.  U-17′s cut the Crew’s lead in half  just before intermission on a tally by Kelly Gully in the 44th minute.  However, the Black and Gold would extend its lead early in the second half, when Will Walker struck in the 6oth minute to give the Crew the eventual 3-1 victory.

Saturday afternoon the Crew’s senior team defeated Toronto FC, 2-0 in the MLS opener for both teams.  Andy Iro scored in the first half and Guillermo Barros Schelotto scored in the second half to power the Crew in the Trillium Cup matchup.

The win gives Columbus a 3 points to zero lead in the 2010 Trillium Cup competition.  The second leg will be played at BMO Field in Toronto on October 16.

Columbus will enjoy a weekend off from MLS play, although it will still be in action as the Crew will host a doubleheader of exhibitions against college teams this Friday, April 2, at Crew Stadium.  The action kicks off at 10 a.m., when the Black and Gold will go up against Marshall University and Bartosz Warzycha, a Thundering Herd forward and the son of Crew head coach Robert Warzycha.  Then the Crew will play a match against the Michigan State Spartans at 12 noon.  Both matches are free and open to the public.

* Crew forward Guillermo Barros Schelotto scored his 25th career regular season goal in the Black and Gold’s 2-0 win over Toronto FC last Saturday in Crew Stadium.  Schelotto put the game away for Columbus in the 87th minute after pouncing on a loose ball at the top of the Toronto penalty box and sent a shot in the back of the net.  Since joining the Crew in 2007 from the storied Argentine Club Boca Juniors, Schelotto has been one of the finest attacking players in the MLS, earning both league and MLS Cup MVP honors, along with two MLS Best XI selections, while accumulating 27 goals and 40 assists in 79 regular-season and playoff games.
