Ohio State head coach Bob Todd picked up the 1,000th win of his career, a 20-9 victory over Richmond in Jacksonville, Fla., on Sunday afternoon. The ABCA Hall of Fame coach became just the 41st head coach in college baseball history to achieve the feat. Says Todd, “I have been in coaching for a long time and had some very talented players and assistant coaches.” “To win 1,000 is a great honor for me”.

12 Buckeyes had an RBI in the game including all nine starters. Matt Streng finished 2-5 with five runs scored and Chris Griffin finished 3-4 with a pair of RBI off the bench. Ryan Dews contributed three hits and two runs scored for the Buckeyes.

The baseball Buckeyes (3-0) will be back in action in the Big Ten/Big East Challenge Friday against South Florida in St. Petersburg, Fla., with game time being 4:30 pm.


For the second consecutive game, the Buckeyes forced their opponent to use a starting position player as a relief pitcher.

The last time an Ohio State team scored 40 runs in the first three games  was 1996.

compiled from staff and wire reports

* Arizona Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch has announced that pitcher Dan Haren will be the team’s opening day starter. Hinch says he probably will select Edwin Jackson as the #2 starter and Brandon Webb as the number 3. Webb’s only game action during 2009 was on opening day, and he is rehabbing his way back from shoulder surgery. Webb has been the opening day starter the last fours for the D-Backs.

* The Houston Astros have extended the contract of general manager Ed Wade through 2012. Wade, who was the Philadelphia Phillies G.M. from 1998-2005, has been with the Astros since September of 2007.

* Kansas City Royals outfielder David DeJesus told the media recently that he is fine with moving from center field to left field. During this past offseason, the Royals added Scott Posednick to play left and Rick Ankiel to play center. DeJesus has started only16 games in his seven year career.


Bengals Marvin Lewis (NFL)

Compiled by staff and wire reports

* Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis says that he wants to bring back safety Roy Williams and defensive tackle Tank Johnson. Some members of the Cincinnati area media wonder why Lewis wants Williams back for 2010 considering he missed the final 12 games with a chronic forearm injury. Johnson had 29 tackles and two sacks in 13 starts for Mike Zimmer’s defense.

Meanwhile Coach Lewis is entering the final year of his contract and says he isn’t worried about being a potential lameduck coach. “I’m only thinking about 2010.”

* Tennessee Titans QB Vince Young has two more seasons and $20 million left on his contract. Not to mention  a $4.25 million roster bonus which will be due March 10. Young is looking for an extension. He regained his starting role after the Titans 0-6 start and led the team toan 8-2 finish down the stretch.

* New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith just a few weeks ago hired CAA to handle his contract negotiations. Smith will be due $550,000 in 2010, the final year of his rookie contract. Smith caught 107 passes for 1,220 yards and seven touchdowns in 2009.

Miami beats Southeast Missouri State in ESPN BracketBuster game

Oxford, O.- In the battle of teams sporting the RedHawks nickname, Miami (O.) dominated Southeast Missouri State from the Ohio Valley Conference, 69-53. The Missouri school is so outmatched in games this season, because their roster consists of 11 newcomers and only four returning starters.

SE Missouri State has not been a powerhouse team in years, so the average fan would not know about them. The school is located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, 100 miles south of  St. Louis on the Mississippi River.

Most basketball fans don’t understand the ESPN BracketBuster matchups. The idea is to put all of the Mid-Major schools and conferences against each other whom they ordinarily would not play. It’s suppose to help the NCAA selection committee in its decision-making when the time comes to pick schools from the Mid-Major level. Some coaches, like Miami’s Charlie Coles feels the idea has fizzled because of bad matchups. For instance, SE Missouri State is 300 in the RPI and Miami is at 150. Why should they be playing each other? Next season, Miami will have to take the 7 hour bus ride to Cape Girardeau to return the game.

Miami has done very well in the BracketBuster Games, going 5-1 defeating Missouri State, Wichita State, Illinois State, Indiana State and now SE Missouri State. They’re now 4-0 at home in this classic. SE Missouri State has not done well in the classic, going 0-5.

With SE Missouri State using a fullcourt press, shooting 85 % from the free throw line and star guard Marland Smith scoring 14 points, the visitors were in the game eventhough the score was 35-24 at the end of the first half. Miami ended the half on a 10-0 run to pull ahead.

In the second half,  Miami took control of the backboards with Nick Winbush and Antonio Ballard grabbing 13 and 9 respectively; scoring in the paint (24-14) and 22-8 in bench scoring.

The Miami RedHawks, playing before a crowd of 2,060, were led in scoring by Antonio Ballard’s 12, Julian Mavunga had 11 and Kenny Hayes chipping in with 10.

Southeast Missouri State,  has had a tough season, losing nine in a row on the road, and recently just ended a 26 game Ohio Valley Conference 26 game loss streak. They were led by star freshman guard Marland Smith with 28 points.   The team is now 7-21 overall and 3-13 in the conference.

At halftime of Saturday’s game between SE Missouri State and Miami, Athletic Director Brad Bates brought back members of basketball teams from the 1950′s. That decade was truly the beginning of a rich tradition in excellence that laid the foundation for a program that has become the jewel of the Mid-American Conference.

Miami won four outright Mid-American Conference titles and shared two others during the 1950′s, quickly setting a standard that has led to a league-most 21 conference titles, more than twice that of any other program.

In addition to the six MAC titles, the most during any decade, and four NCAA Tournament appearances. The players honored included: Wayne Embry, Jim Hamilton and Darrell Hedric. Three players from that era have had their jersey retired to the Millett Hall rafters: Dick Walls, Wayne Embry and Darrell Hedric.

SE Missouri State’s win totals have slipped the past five years going from 15-7-11-12 and 3. So has their RPI, (Ratings Percentage Index), which has slipped in order: 204-313-293-292-339. That’s why they hired Dickey Nutt as the head coach. Nutt, who has coached in over 403 games in his carer, spent 21 seasons at Arkansas State as an assistant and head coach and turned that obscure program into a solid one.  With time, SE Missouri State administration feels he’ll be able to turn their program around.

A Super Sunday Indeed !

Drew Brees Saints (NFL)

The New Orleans Saints 31-17 upset win over Indianapolis in Super Bowl XLIV fit a familiar pattern in recent games of the NFL’s jewel game. For the third straight season, the Super Bowl came down to the final minutes with the trailing team within a touchdown of the lead and in possession of the ball. And for the third consecutive year, a signature play sealed the game.

Two years ago, it was David Tyree’s “helmet catch” for the New York Giants which upset New England. Last year, Pittsburgh’s Santonio Holmes made a toe-tapping touchdown reception while surrounded by Arizona defenders. And this year, with the Colts driving to tie the game, Saints cornerback Tracy Porter raced 74 yards for the game-sealing interception-return touchdown.

The MVP, Saints QB Drew Brees tied a Super Bowl record 32 completions as he finished with 288 yards and two touchdowns without a single turnover. He completed 82.1 percent of his passes (32 of 39), the second-highest mark in a Super Bowl. Brees, who set the NFL single-season completion percentage mark (70.60) in the regular season, finished the game with 10 completions in a row.

There was another record set during the Super Bowl. viewing audience. It was simply, the most-viewed television program of all time. Super Bowl XLIV reached a total audience of 153.4 million viewers, making it the most-watched show in U.S. television history, according to Nielsen Media Research. The game topped the previous mark of 151.6 million viewers set last year (Arizona-Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLIII). Super Bowls account for the 19 most-watched programs in history in terms of total audience. In addition, a record average of 106.5 million viewers watched Super Bowl XLIV, topping the previous mark of 106.0 million for the series-finale of M*A*S*H in 1983 and an eight percent increase over last year’s Super Bowl (98.7 million
