As expected, Bobek leaves OSU; chooses Minnesota

Former Ohio State football player Brian Bobek has made his decision to continue his academic/career at the University of Minnesota.

There is a penalty for Bobek transferring in the Big Ten. By choosing another Big Ten team, Bobek will lose a year of eligibility. Bobek, an offensive center, becomes eligible in 2013, and will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Bobek, who is 275 pounds, did not fit into the new spread offense as a lighter center.

He will not get the chance to play against the Buckeyes because the Gophers do not play again until 2015.

After arriving in Columbus as one of the top high-school centers in the nation, Bobek did not play much as a freshman. He fell behind in spring football practices to Corey Linsley and Jacoby Boren.

Ohio State finally woke up the bats in the eighth inning by scoring five runs on five hits and two Gophers errors.

With Minnesota up 3-2, closer Scott Matyas struck out Josh Dezse before Matt Streng single into right field to score Tim Wetzel to tie the game at 3-3.

Williams Arena

Williams Arena floor

Over the years, Ohio State Buckeyes teams, whether they’re good or bad, have had trouble winning in 80-year-old Williams Arena on the University of Minnesota campus.

However, the #1-ranked Buckeyes overcame the jinx, the fans and the elevated floor of Williams Arena to beat the 18th-ranked Gophers for only the second time in the past six visits to Williams Arena, 82-69.

David Lighty, the only player on the Ohio State roster who had ever won a game at Williams Arena, led the way with 19 points. The sixth-year senior along with Jared Sullinger, Dallas Lauderdale and DeShaun Thomas helped shutdown the Minnesota Gophers inside trio of Ralph Sampson III, Trevor Mbakwe and Colton Iverson.

The Gophers have had problems in their backcourt since point guard Al Nolen broke his foot and sixth man Devoe Joseph transferred. Head coach Tubby Smith has had to rely more on his inside players.

Sullinger scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for his 11th double-double of the season.

The Buckeyes also controlled the offensive boards with 22.

OSU improves to 24-0, 11-0 in the Big Ten, while Minnesota drops to 16-7, 5-6.
