OSU AT MIAMI GAMEDAY: Buckeyes can’t pass, tackle or score touchdowns in 24-6 embarrassment

There were several weaknesses exposed in Ohio State’s 24-6 national television embarrassment to the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday night.

They couldn’t pass, catch, score touchdowns and the quarterbacks looked lost, completing 4 of 18 passes for a feeble 35 yards.

Joe Bauserman, who is turning into a one-game wonder, played tentative and scared, and didn’t to anything to secure the #1 quarterback job which most fans and media feel he shouldn’t be competing for anyway.

Braxton Miller showed he could make plays when plans break down, did lose a fumble and threw an interception which was tipped by his own receiver. However, he showed more poise than Bauserman, who looked out of his league.

The running game led by Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde kept the game from being more lopsided than it was.

Hall, back from a two-game suspension by the NCAA, gave the offense a big lift by rushing for 87 yards on 14 carries before cramps slowed him in the second half.

Hyde continued his hard-nosed, bulldozing running with 54 yards.

The Hurricanes were led on offense by running back Lamar Miller, a sophomore who rushed for 184 yards on 26 carries. His 54-yard run through the right side on the first play from scrimmage set up Miami’s first touchdown and they were never in any real jeopardy after that.

Most of us who cover the Ohio State Buckeyes on a regular basis, were sitting in the press box during Saturday’s 27-22 win over the Toledo Rockets wandering several things aloud, on Twitter and Facebook.

What if Luke Fickell loses this game and why isn’t he playing Braxton Miller when it was obvious Joe Bauserman was struggling badly at times.

If Toledo had won that game, it would’ve been the first time in 90 years that an in-state opponent would’ve beaten the Buckeyes. Believe it or not, Oberlin won in 1921.

A loss like this would not look good when Coach Fickell and Gene Smith get together at the end of the season to decide whether he keeps the job or not.

Toledo is a good football team, but they are not Wisconsin, Miami of Florida, Nebraska or Michigan.

The first-year head coach also could not be happy with his special teams inconsistent play. Toledo blocking a punt to set up its first TD and Drew Basil missing two field goals, one that counted and one that was nullified due to a penalty.

In his postgame press conference with the media, Fickell talked about Carlos Hyde, the blocked punt, Chris Fields’ 69-yard punt return for a TD, Philly Brown, Rod Smith’s fumbling and the state of the team after two games.

COLUMBUS, OHIO — For the past months leading up to the start of the Ohio State Buckeyes football season, fans and media all were hoping that the quarterback job should be given to Braxton Miller and not the senior, Joe Bauserman, who has patiently waited his turn to shine.

Nobody knew what to expect out of Bauserman. after all, he had not started a game at OSU and sat the past two season sitting behind Pryor.

In Saturday’s 42-0 romp over Akron, Baserman showed that he is elusive, has a strong arm that is accurate and showed poise.

The 25-year-old Bauserman, started his first game at quarterback in 8 years and he was phenomenal, running for a score and passed for 3 touchdowns which landed in the arms of tight end Jake Stoneburner. Bauserman had not started a game since his senior year in high school.

Overall, Bauserman was 12 of 16 passing for 163 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions.

Bauserman, a former Pittsburgh Pirates pitching prospect, started the game going 5-for-5 for 61 yards passing.

Bauserman’s three-touchdown game was the first since Terrelle Pryor threw three touchdowns

Braxton Miller threw two touchdown passes in Ohio State’s jersey scrimmage at Ohio Stadium Saturday afternoon.

Braxton, a freshman from Huber Heights, Ohio, passed to Chris Fields on 58-yard catch-and-run on the first series that the quarterbacks wore their black, non-contact jerseys. He later hit Devin Smith for a 26-yard scoring strike.

Joe Bauserman, a fifth-year senior, threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Heuerman but also was intercepted in the end zone by Travis Howard.

No score was kept and the winner of the coveted scarlet practice jerseys would be decided after the coaching staff reviews the scrimmage video tape.

Amid NCAA investigation, bad press, Pryor says goodbye to Ohio State


Terrelle Pryor (file photo)

Terrelle Pryor was an imposing figure on the football field at 6’6. 233-pounds.

He was also very successful with a 31-4 record, with 3 Big Ten Conference titles and 2 Bowl wins.

Even with a five-game NCAA suspension in place for the 2011 season, he could’ve improved on all of those stats and championships. But all of that will not be.

Pryor announced on Tuesday that his Ohio State football career is over. He made the announcement through his attorney, Larry James of Columbus, “In the best interests of my teammates, I’ve made the decision to forego my senior year of football at the Ohio State University.”

Pryor’s announcement comes eight days after the resignation of head coach Jim Tressel, who also is facing an NCAA investigation and equally as bad press.

Ohio State interim head coach Luke Fickell said he found out about Pryor’s decision on Tuesday night. “I was notified that Terrelle has decided to pursue a professional career; I wish him the best in his pursuits.”

With Pryor leaving, the Buckeyes quarterback will be chosen from fifth-year senior Joe Bauserman, Kenny Guiton, Taylor Graham and talented freshman Braxton Miller. All four received plenty of reps in the spring since Pryor was out of action after having surgery on his right ankle. Miller and Guiton, both athletic and fast resemble Pryor the best, both played well in the Spring Game.
