Otterbein has respectable showing in loss to OAC kingpin, Mount Union

Most teams in the Ohio Athletic Conference try not to get embarrassed when they play Mount Union.

The Purple Raiders are the clearly, year-in-and-year out, the best team in the conference. They rarely lose and usually scores between 30-60 points every game.

But on Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Westerville, Ohio, the Otterbein Cardinals played a decent game and stayed with the OAC kingpin tot-to-toe in losing, 28-10.

The Fighting Cardinals led 3-0 after one quarter of play, but three points won’t beat the Purple Raiders. The defending OAC champions scored three touchdowns in the second quarter and won the 51st consecutive regular-season game in the conference.

Otterbein DB Elliott Glass recovered a muffed punt at the Mount Union 24-yard line midway through the first quarter that led to a 29-yard field goal by David Brewer.

Mount Union took a 14-3 lead, but the Cardinals fought back with a 38-yard scoring drive capped by a 9-yard touchdown run by Austin Schlosser. But that was as close as the Cardinals would get.

The crowd of 3,853 saw Mount Union outgain Otterbein 361 yards to 138.

2nd ranked Mount Union goes to 8-0 overall, 7-0 in the OAC.

Otterbein, who plays at Marietta College next Saturday at 1:30 p.m., fall to a disappointing 4-4, 3-4 in the OAC.

Otterbein Cardinals gets 2010 off to good start; rolls Husson 38-0

There’s not many times during a college football season in NCAA Division III, that a team travels 19-hours to play an opponent. Road trips usually are between 2-5 hours. But every once in awhile, teams will find an opponent that they haven’t played before and the two schools will play each other.

Such was the case on Friday night, when the Otterbein Cardinals traveled 19 hours by bus to Bangor, Maine to play Husson University in the opening game for the 2010 football season.

For those of you who might not be familiar with Husson University, it is a private college with 3,000 students. It was founded in 1898 as Shaw School of Business by Chesley Husson. The Eagles play in the North Atlantic Conference.

That 19-hour bus ride didn’t hamper the Cardinals at all, as they shut down Husson, 38-0.

Senior running back Colton Coy rushed for 166 yards and two touchdowns while the Cardinal defense limited the eagles to 116 yards of total offense, forcing four turnovers in the non-conference game.

Coy opened the scoring for Otterbein on its second possession of the game, a 4-yard touchdown run, which ended a 12-play, 85-yard drive and put the Cardinals up 7-0 at the 3:41 mark of the first quarter.

Otterbein, ranked 20th by, scored on its next two possessions of the football, a pair of  scoring passes of six and 10 yards from junior quarterback Austin Schlosser to junior wide receiver Trey Fairchild and senior wide receiver Steve Kuzyk, respectively, to move the score to 21-0 at the end of the first half.

Coy was still a force to be reckoned with in the second half, breaking loose for a 19-yard run for a touchdown 24 seconds into the second half following an interception by Otterbein junior linebacker Shane Centers. The Cardinals led by a score of 28-0 with 14:36 to go in the third quarter.

Senior placekicker David Brewer added a 38-yard field goal and sophomore running back Brit Musal, who replaced Colton Coy midway through the fourth quarter, finished the scoring for the visitors with a 13-yard run.

Coy rushed the ball 27 times for 166 yards and two scores and also had a 32-yard pass reception.

Schlosser completed 14 0f 23 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns. Kuzyk led the team with six catches for 54 yards while Fairchild caught five balls for 81 yards.

Defensively, Otterbein held Husson to 70 yards rushing and 48 yards passing.

Otterbein has a bye on Saturday September 11 and will host 11th-ranked Ohio Northern September 18 in its Ohio Athletic Conference home opener. The Polar Bears opened 2010 with a victory of its own, 35-21 over Wisconsin-River Falls Thursday at home in Ada.

2010 Ohio Athletic Conference Football Team Preview: Otterbein Cardinals picked to finish 3rd in race


*Special thanks goes out to Otterbein Sports Information director Ed Syguda for supplying information and photos and to’s Todd Oliver & Dan Poel for their help with photos.

I remember Otterbein athletic director & basketball coach Dick Reynolds telling me right after he hired Joe Loth, a 1991 graduate of the University, that he had a ‘good feeling’ about him turning the program around. “He’s an Otterbein guy”, Reynolds told me. “He’ll get it done!” I’m an Otterbein guy myself and I believed what Coach Reynolds said about Loth. I remember when he played for the Cardinals as All-OAC performer at defensive back. He still holds the school’s career record of 13 interceptions.

Get it done, that’s exactly what Loth has done!

It took him a couple of years, but nobody was expecting a miracle the first few years anyway.

In 2003, Otterbein was 3-7; 2004 they improved to 4-6. Then in 2005, they were one of the OAC’s surprise teams, going 7-3 overall, 6-3 in the conference. 2006, they dropped back to 4-6. Improved to 5-5 overall in 2007, 5-4 in the OAC. In 2008, the Cardinals vaulted all the way up to 9-2, 8-1 in the OAC and last season, 2009, were 8-2 and 7-2 in the conference. So you see, the “Otterbein guy” got the job done. After seven years, Joe Loth is 40-31 overall.

In the OAC preseason polls, Otterbein was picked third by the coaches and the media. The coaches gave them 63.5 points total and 1/2 first place vote. The media, including myself, gave them 274 points, but no first place votes.

Otterbein’s recent success has resulted in being recognized nationally. They have been ranked 24th by Lindy’s preseason Top 25 and 15th by USA Today’s College Football Preseason Top 25. So expections continue to run high for the Westerville, Ohio school.

Otterbein University has compiled a 17-4 record over the last two years and now heads into 2010 looking to record its third-straight winning season, a feat that has not been seen around the program since the Cardinals put together four winning seasons from 1979 to 1982, while I was attending as a student.

The Cardinals, return 51 letterman, including eight starters on offense and six on defense, from the 2009 squad which finished 8-2 overall, 7-2 with a share of second place in the OAC.

Coach Loth has four of five starters returning on the offensive line, including second team All-OAC senior guard Matt Hochberg. The Cardinals led the league in rushing last year, averaging 222 yards a game.

Senior running back Colton Coy, a two-time first team All-OAC selection, and junior quarterback Austin Schlosser, who took over the starting role in the third game last season due to an injury to 2008 Gagliardi Trophy Finalist Jack Rafferty, return.

Coy rushed for 1,013 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, becoming only the second running back to go over the 1,000-yard mark in Otterbein history. Schlosser threw for 1,363 yards and 12 touchdowns, and rushed for 304 yards and seven touchdowns. The versatile quarterback finished with a 164.15 pass efficiency rating, ranking eighth in NCAA Division III.

Senior defensive end Chaz Horsley, a second-team All-OAC selection last season, is expected to anchor the defensive unit, which should get an added boost with the return of senior linebacker Wil Longsdorf, who missed 2009 with an injury suffered in game one.

Horsley had 49 tackles and led the team with 9.5 tackles for a loss, including 4.5 sacks in 2009. In 2008, Longsdorf was the team’s third-leading tackler, with 59 stops, including 4.0 sacks.

Senior punter/place-kicker David Brewer returns as well as senior return specialist Anthony Korpieski. Brewer hit 5 of 8 field-goal attempts and 35 of 37 extra-point attempts last season. Korpieski, who earned honorable mention All-OAC honors, averaged 8.2 yards on punt returns and 24.9 yards on kick returns.

The Cardinals open the 2010 seaon September 3 at Husson College in Bangor, Maine.

Coach Joe Loth qoutes from the 2010 Ohio Athletic Conference Football Preview:

Faced adversity in 2009, but was 8-2″

“This will be the best offensive line in his tenure”

“Question marks at wide receiver”

“Front 6 depth is good”

“Solid kick game with David Brewer”
