Guiton and Washington lead the Gray over the Scarlet in the annual Spring Game


Ohio Stadium scoreboard says it all (

Everybody who was in attendance at the annual Ohio State Spring game (65,223) were interested in seeing Terrelle Pryor at QB, who would be emerging at wide receiver, who would be the #1 tight end, how the defense would replace key graduated starters and who would emerge at the #2 QB spot.

Well, all of those questions were answered, but the one that shocked everyone including members of the media, was third-string quarterback Kenny Guiton.

The little-known and little-used quarterback threw a 45-yard scoring pass to wide receiver Taurian Washington with 55 seconds left in the 4th quarter on Saturday to give the gray a 17-14 vistory over the Scarlet in Ohio State’s annual intrasquad scrimmage which wraps up 15 spring practices covering a month.

“I felt real comfortable. I had three of the starting lineman to protect me, so there was no reason for me to be jittery or antsy in the pocket. So I read the defense, took my time and just played ball,” said Guiton, a redshirt freshman from Houston, Texas.

Guiton completed 11 of 21 passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns, both to Washington, who had three catches for 83 yards.

Guiton’s performance was a surprise to many. He was the last player offered in his recruiting class and had to wait until two other recruits Ohio State wanted, didn’t sign, so the scholarship went to Guiton.

The number 1 quarterback, Terrelle Pryor completed 8-of-12 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game early. He was not brought out to speak to reporters after the game, which shocked and angered many members of the media.

The teams swapped across midway through the first quarter. The first score of the game was Taurian Washington snagging a 28-yard scoring pass from Guiton.

Then Pryor, not to be undone by his understudy Guiton, took the Scarlet team on a 4-play, 78 yard drive, elapsing 1:37 off the clock to tie the game at 7-7 when Dane Sanzenbacher on a 12 yard touchdown.

The game stayed 7-7 until the fourth quarter.

Drew Basil ended the scoring drought by kicking a 47-yard field goal at the 10:31 mark of the fourth quarter to put the Gray up 10-7.

The Scarlet came back to go up 14-10 on Bo Delande’s 4-yard touchdown run with 4:48 left in the game.

After Delande’s scoring run, the Scarlet shocked the Gray with an on-side kick that was recovered by the Scarlet’s Spencer Smith. Joe Bauserman, who is the backup quarterback, hit James Jackson on a 43-yard pass play. After a penalty, the Scarlet had the ball in a first-and-5 situation at the Gray 13 with just over 3 minutes left.

But Bauserman’s throw into the end zone was intercepted by Nate Oliver, who returned the ball to the 11. Guiton took over from that point.

He completed passes of 8, 15, 16 and 11 yards to move the ball into Scarlet territory before lobbing a pass down the left sideline near the goal line where Washington  pulled in between defenders Dominic Clarke and Nate Ebner.

The Scarlet tried to mount a comeback but Taylor Rice intercepted a long Joe Bauserman pass in the final minute.

The Buckeyes will return nine starters on offense when they open their season on Thursday September 2 against the Marshall Thundering Herd at home.

Saturday’s Spring Game was dubbed the Scarlet, Gray and Pink Game with coaches wearing pink caps and players sporting jerseys with pink accents that will be auctioned off to benefit the Stephanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research. The wife of former Ohio State and NFL linebacker Chris Spielman died this past November.

Media members in the press box (

Honorary Head Coach of the Scarlet team was John Reed, the former football coach at Coldwater High School. Overall as a head coach, his record  is 283-126-1. The 283 wins ranks him 11th all-time for Ohio High School Football Coaches wins. He was a 2006 Ohio High School Football Coaches Association Inductee.

At Coldwater, his record is 168-31 from 1995-2009. He recently had to resign his post due to cancer of the esophagus. Two of his former Cavaliers played on the Scarlet team on Saturday. Because coach Reed was too ill to attend, his former players put together a video tribute that was played on the scoreboard in Ohio Stadium.

NCAA TOURNAMENT: South Regional, Elite 8 Sunday Results

compiled from staff and news reports

With the Duke Blue Devils not reaching the Final Four since 2004, the loyal fan base were getting restless but coach Mike Krzyzewski says all the fuss didn’t bother him.

But don’t look now, Coach K has his team on the cusp of one win away from the national championship game.

Duke received a career-high 29 points from Nolan Smith in a 78-71 win over the Baylor Bears in Houston, Texas  that put Krzyzewski and the Blue Devils back into college basketball’s biggest stage, the Final Four.

Jon Scheyer added five 3-point baskets and scored 20 points for Duke, ending  local favorite Baylor’s dream run in the South Regional final.  The Blue Devils became this year’s only number 1 seed to advance to Indianapolis and earned their 11th Final Four berth under Coach K.

LaceDarius Dunn had 22 points and Epke Udoh scored 18 for the third-seeded Bears who end the season at 28-8. The Baylor program was in shambles and   under scrutiny when head coach Scott Drew took over in the wake of  scandal and murder almost seven years ago.

Drew took the Bears from the outhouse to the brink of their first Final Four appearance in 60 years.  After three consecutive 20-win seasons and an unexpected postseason run which now has the public recognizing it is a solid program and tragedy of the summer of 2003 can be put to rest for good.

Scott Drew was 32 years old when he was hired and had only been a head coach for just one season,winning 20 games at Valparaiso while his Dad, Homer Drew was on a sabbatical. Scott prior to that spent nine years as his Dad’s assistant. He had to rebuild his program in the always tough Big 12 Conference with a reduction in scholarships and a roster torn-apart by the transfers of the top three scorers after that tragic summer in 2003 when Patrick Dennehy was shot to death by a teammate.

Baylor made it to the NCAA tournament two years ago, when it lost in the first round to Purdue, and to the NIT championship game last April.

The Bears, from Waco, Texas, were picked 10th in the preseason poll by the Big 12 coaches at the beginning of this season after losing three 1,000-point scorers to graduation.  But they were the last Big 12 team still playing.

By beating Baylor, the Blue Devils will play East Regional champion West Virginia in the national semifinals Saturday night.  They have won 11 of their last 12 regional finals under Coach K, but haven’t won a national title since 2001.

Mike Krzyzewski made his first Final four with the Blue Devils in 1986 and hadn’t had a gap this long between trips to the biggest stage in college basketball.

Duke ended the Final Four drought at Reliant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans, only 3 1/2 hours from Baylor University’s campus in Waco.  Most of the crowd of 47,492 were dressed in green and gold colors of the Bears and had an impact on keeping Baylor in the game through the end.
