OHIO STATE AT ILLINOIS GAMEWEEK: Miller’s ankle is ready to go

Ohio State head coach Luke Fickell indicated that freshman QB Braxton Miller’s sprained ankle should not be an issue at all against Illinois.

If Miller should have any trouble with the ankle, Fickell will probably go with redshirt sophomore Kenny Guiton as his replacement.

Guiton has the same types of talents that Miller possesses and that would give the Illini defense fits.

It’s not likely that he would turn to fifth-year senior Joe Bauserman, who struggled last year at Illinois and was a very poor 1-of-10 passing against Nebraska when the team needed him to lead them to a win.

OSU 37 COLORADO 17 GAME REVIEW: Miller proves he should be #1 QB

Ohio State football fans got what they’ve wanted all season; freshman QB sensation Braxton Miller as the number-1 man playing an entire game and leading the team to a win.

The athletic and exciting phenom from Huber Heights, Ohio, gave the Buckeyes a much-needed lift after the team lost the 24-6 debacle to Miami last weekend.

We seen this twice before at Ohio State as an athletic quarterback replaces a pure-passer: Troy Smith replaced Justin Zwick; Terrelle Pryor replaced Todd Boeckman and now Miller replacing Joe Bauserman.

In the 37-17 win over new Pacific-12 Conference member, Colorado.

Miller, making his first collegiate start, wasn’t spectacular throwing the ball, but he was 5 of 13 passing for 83 yards and rushed 17 times for 83 yards. He threw two touchdown passes to Devin Smith. He moved the team up-and-down the field with the poise of a senior.

Head coach Luke Fickell said after the game that Miller is the starting quarterback from here-on-out.

The Buckeyes defense held the Buffaloes from gaining a first down until they were up 17-0.

The 3-1 Buckeyes dominated the special teams as Jordan Hall had a 90-yard kickoff return.

GAME NOTES:

* OSU has 822 wins all-time, the fifth-most among FBS schools.

* The Buckeyes were 5-of-6 in the red zone, with three touchdowns and two field goals.

* Ohio State held Colorado to 3-of-13 on third down conversions.

* The Buffaloes had only two possessions inside the red zone against the Buckeye defense.

* Colorado tailback Rodney Stewart, a Columbus Brookhaven High School graduate, ran for 96 All-purpose yards on 11 rushes for 55 yards on offense, 5 catches for 27 as a receiver and 2 punt returns for 14 yards.

He moved into third place on the CU all-time rushing yards list, closing the game with 3,022 yards; he passed Bobby Purify (2000-04) with 3,016 and is right behind Rashaan Salaam (1992-94) with 3,057 for second place.

He is still second in career rushes with 692. His offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy leads with 699. Stewart’s five receptions gives him 71 career receptions, now second most by a running back at Colorado as he passed Lawrence Vickers (2002-05) on Saturday.

His 702 receiving yards are also second by a running back, as he passed up Cortlen Johnson (1998-2001) with 691 and Lee Rouson (1980-84) with 699 on Saturday. Up next is Herchell Troutman (1994-97) with 725.

* There is no real way to research this, but Colorado head coach Jon Embree might be the first collegiate head coach to face three schools who all appear on his first schedule that he chose his alma mater over.

Back in January 1983, when Embree, along with a dozen other top prospects in Colorado, chosen then CU-head coach Bill McCartney and his vision for the program. The high school All-American from Englewood Cherry Creek High School then committed and signed with the Buffaloes, and in selecting Colorado over Ohio State, Southern California and UCLA, all of whom are opponents on his first schedule as a head coach.

COLORADO AT OHIO STATE GAMEDAY: Miller gets the starting job vs. Buffaloes

Everybody in Buckeyes country has been waiting all season for head coach Luke Fickell to name true freshman quarterback Braxton Miller as his starter.

The Huber Heights Wayne High School graduate will be starting this afternoon against the Colorado Buffaloes in Ohio Stadium. Game time is 3:30 pm.

The move pushes the athletic and play-making Miller ahead of one-dimensional fifth-year senior Joe Bauserman who started the first three games.

Miller was ranked by Rivals.com as the #1 dual-threat quarterback in the country in the 2011 recruiting class.

Fickell realizes that starting a freshman has its risks, but the upswing is that Miller can make plays and Bauserman could not.

 

 

 

OSU AT MIAMI GAMEDAY: Buckeyes can’t pass, tackle or score touchdowns in 24-6 embarrassment

There were several weaknesses exposed in Ohio State’s 24-6 national television embarrassment to the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday night.

They couldn’t pass, catch, score touchdowns and the quarterbacks looked lost, completing 4 of 18 passes for a feeble 35 yards.

Joe Bauserman, who is turning into a one-game wonder, played tentative and scared, and didn’t to anything to secure the #1 quarterback job which most fans and media feel he shouldn’t be competing for anyway.

Braxton Miller showed he could make plays when plans break down, did lose a fumble and threw an interception which was tipped by his own receiver. However, he showed more poise than Bauserman, who looked out of his league.

The running game led by Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde kept the game from being more lopsided than it was.

Hall, back from a two-game suspension by the NCAA, gave the offense a big lift by rushing for 87 yards on 14 carries before cramps slowed him in the second half.

Hyde continued his hard-nosed, bulldozing running with 54 yards.

The Hurricanes were led on offense by running back Lamar Miller, a sophomore who rushed for 184 yards on 26 carries. His 54-yard run through the right side on the first play from scrimmage set up Miami’s first touchdown and they were never in any real jeopardy after that.

TOLEDO-OSU RECAP: Luke Fickell escapes embarassing loss;discusses game outcome

Most of us who cover the Ohio State Buckeyes on a regular basis, were sitting in the press box during Saturday’s 27-22 win over the Toledo Rockets wandering several things aloud, on Twitter and Facebook.

What if Luke Fickell loses this game and why isn’t he playing Braxton Miller when it was obvious Joe Bauserman was struggling badly at times.

If Toledo had won that game, it would’ve been the first time in 90 years that an in-state opponent would’ve beaten the Buckeyes. Believe it or not, Oberlin won in 1921.

A loss like this would not look good when Coach Fickell and Gene Smith get together at the end of the season to decide whether he keeps the job or not.

Toledo is a good football team, but they are not Wisconsin, Miami of Florida, Nebraska or Michigan.

The first-year head coach also could not be happy with his special teams inconsistent play. Toledo blocking a punt to set up its first TD and Drew Basil missing two field goals, one that counted and one that was nullified due to a penalty.

In his postgame press conference with the media, Fickell talked about Carlos Hyde, the blocked punt, Chris Fields’ 69-yard punt return for a TD, Philly Brown, Rod Smith’s fumbling and the state of the team after two games.
