The Buckeyes continue to hang with them as the saying goes as the halftime score at soldout Ohio Stadium is 7-3 Wisconsin.

The Buckeyes produced the only score of the 2nd quarter as kicker Drew Basil’s 39-yard field goal hit the left upright but it was good.

The Buckeyes defense put constant pressure on the Badgers star quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Homecoming crowd have been treated with visits from Byron Mullins, Evan Turner and Michael Redd and Eddie George.

Eddie George is being honored for his upcoming induction into the National College Football Hall of Fame.

The stats at the half has Wisconsin with 127 yards of total offense and the Buckeyes with 104. The Badgers have only 10 yards on the ground.

There have been seven freshmen voted to the Associated Press first team All-American squad in the past five years.

Ohio State has two of them, in Greg Oden and Jared Sullinger.

Sullinger, who averaged 17.2 points and 10.1 rebounds, is the first Buckeyes’ player to average a double-double since Brad Sellers in 1986. He was one of two freshmen in NCAA Division I play to average double-double in points and rebounds; the other player was South Alabama Jaguars player Augustine Rubit.

Sullinger joins Connecticut junior Kemba Walker and seniors JaJuan Johnson of Purdue, Nolan Smith of Duke and Jimmer Fredette of Brigham Young.

LaQuinton Ross liked Ohio State for several reason.

He liked the campus on his visit; feels OSU can win a national title; likes how they developed Evan Turner into an NBA second-round pick and he sees himself as a one-and-player.

The 6’8 guard from Mississippi signed with the Buckeyes earlier in the week and became the fourth member of the 2011 recruiting class.

He joins 6’2 point guard Shannon Scott, 6’6 wing Sam Thompson and 6’9 Trey McDonald.
