Four Ohio State players played in the Senior Bowl on Saturday afternoon for the North squad, RB Daniel Herron, WR DeVier Posey, OC Michael Brewster and OL Mike Adams.

But the real star of the game came from the University of Cincinnati.

Eastmoor Academy graduate Isaiah Pead was named the game’s most valuable player in helping the North team to a 23-13 win over the South in Mobile, Alabama.

Pead set a Senior Bowl record in the first half with 98 yards on two punt returns.

Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass and threw for 115 yards.

Wisconsin QB Russell Wilson also threw for a touchdown.

Much-maligned Bollman headed to Boston College

Former offensive coordinator Jim Bollman, who took the brunt of criticism during the 2011 season at Ohio State for not being a great play-caller, has landed another job with the Boston College Eagles.

Bollman’s new position will be as the offensive line coach and running-game coordinator.

Everybody who covered and followed the Buckeyes team, knew that Bollman was an offensive coordinator by name only as former head coach Jim Tressel called all the plays.

But when Tressel resigned in May due to NCAA violations, Bollman had to take over an offense that had inexperienced quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers and was missing Daniel Herron at tailback and Devier Posey at wideout and it was obvious Bollman had no clue at what to do as the offense struggled against Miami (FL), Michigan State, Purdue and Penn State en route to a 6-7 record, the first losing season at Ohio State in 23 years.

Bollman told the media that he interviewed for the job a few weeks ago with Eagles head coach Frank Spaziani. He has never worked with Spaziani but they’ve known each other for years.

Boston College is coming off a bad season of their own in 2011 at 4-8 overall, 3-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Posey’s return could help offense against Sukay & Still


DeVier Posey finally back at WR

Nick Sukay has three INT's

Devon Still leads BTC with 16.5 TFL's

The Ohio State offense will finally get back veteran wide receiver DeVier Posey, a senior.

Earlier this week, head coach Luke Fickell was asked if Posey would start in his first game back in the lineup after serving two different NCAA suspensions. Fickell on Tuesday said he did not know.

We all know that Mike Adams and Daniel Herron started their first games back and my guess is Posey will because Ohio State will need him against a solid Penn State defense.

OSU will go up against a defense that leads the Big Ten in interceptions with 14; free safety Nick Sukay has three to lead the team. Up front, Devon Still, a certain first-round NFL draft pick is looming. He ranks second in the BTC in tackles for loss with 16.5.

The Buckeyes have been trying to go deep so much with Braxton Miller with little success. What OSU needs is to go to a short passing game featuring slants, curls and jailbreak screens like Purdue did last week.

The OSU running attack of Herron, Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde will be tough to stop as well.

OHIO STATE AT PURDUE PREVIEW: Purdue’s Holland & Short will try to stop OSU running attack


Joe Holland

Kawann Short

The Purdue Boilermakers defense last week allowed Wisconsin RB Montee Ball to rush for 223 yards while the Badgers offense racked up 364 rushing yards and 605 total in that 62-17 debacle.

This week, it will not get any easier as the Boilermakers will be facing Ohio State’s three-headed running attack of Daniel Herron, Carlos Hyde and QB Braxton Miller will be arriving in Ross-Ade Stadium. They’ll have to pick their poison on who to stop.

The Purdue defense allows 26.4 points per game and only the Hoosiers allow more rushing yards per game in the Big Ten as we saw last week.

The Boilermakers do have a couple of players that the Buckeyes will have to watch, LB Joe Holland and DT Kawann Short. Holland is 19th in school history with 297 career tackles. Short is one of the best in the Big Ten at DT as his 12.5 tackles for a loss ranks fourth.

Another player to watch on the Purdue defense is CB Ricardo Allen, who has three interceptions and has returned one for a touchdown.



Three, 100-yard rushers lead Buckeyes past pesky Indiana


Braxton Miller rushed for 105 yards

When the Ohio State Buckeyes schedule moved to the next opponent, Indiana, everybody from the fans and media felt that the offense was going to rout the struggling and young Hoosiers.

But what we witnessed in Saturday’s game was the complete opposite, a close, game which could’ve been an embarrassing loss.

The Buckeyes however, pulled together late in the game to win 34-20.

A crowd of 105,195 at Ohio Stadium, saw the home team go down 10-0 early, but lead by three, 100-yard rushers, the Buckeyes rolled up 401 yards of total offense.

The game wasn’t decided until Travis Howard intercepted a Tre Roberson pass with 4:07 to go and OSU leading 27-20. That pick led to the Buckeyes scoring a game-clinching TD by running back Carlos Hyde of  2 yards with 2:41 to go to make the score 34-20.

Carlos Hyde came off the bench to rush for 105 yards

Ohio State’s ground attack was too much for Indiana. Daniel Herron rushed for 141 yards on 14 carries, Carlos Hyde bulled his way to 105 yards on 15 lugs and QB Braxton Miller dashed and slashed his way to 105 yards on 14 rushes. The Buckyes rushed for 346 yards on 46 carries. The last time the Buckeyes had three, 100-yard rushers was in 1989 vs. Northwestern with Scottie Graham, Carlos Snow and Dante Lee pulling the trick.

Daniel Herron led the way on the ground with 141 yards

The win improves the Buckeyes to third straight win. They are 6-3 overall and 3-2 in the Big Ten Leaders Division.

The Hoosiers, dropped their seventh game in a row and are 1-9 overall and 0-6 in the Leaders Division.

Indiana, which rolled up 333 yards on offense, was led by freshman QB Tre Roberson who was 11 of 21 passing for 174 yards and 1 touchdown. The talented signal-caller also rushed for 70 yards. Wide receiver Kofi Hughes also had a big game for the Hoosiers with 147 yards on eight receptions and a touchdown.



Miller probably had the most exciting play of the game in the first quarter. With OSU trailing 10-0, the Buckeyes after an illegal procedure penalty and facing a 2-12-from their own 19, Miller went back to pass and dodged the Indiana rush, ran outside and down the middle of the field and into the clear, he appeared to almost trip at the Indiana 20 but got into the end zone for a touchdown. The 81-yard touchdown was the longest by an Ohio State quarterback and fifth-longest in school history.
