The Walnut Ridge Scots have played most of the 2013 season without their best college prospect, defensive end Robert Bowers. A hulking, 6’5, 210-pound specimen, Bowers, a senior, has committed to Michigan State University. He has been out most of the season recovering from shoulder surgery,

His absence has not kept the Scots from winning games. They are 6-1 overall, 4-2 in the South Division.

Friday night, Walnut Ridge ran away from visiting Briggs, 63-12.

Starring for the Scots were William Stringer who rushed for 146 yards and two touchdowns; Jaisean Johnson rushed 17 times for 193 yards rushing with five touchdowns.

Briggs, under head coach Butler By’not’e, a former Ohio State running back under John Cooper, drops to 1-7, 1-4 on the season.

There have been rumored reports since last weekend that former Florida Gators coach Urban Meyer will be the next coach at Ohio State.

Websites, newspapers, radio and television stations around Columbus, Ohio, home of Ohio State have reported that Meyer has agreed in principle to become the Buckeyes coach next week.

Meyer is continuing to say there has been no offer or no deal accepted.

The Buckeyes are currently being coached by interim coach Luke Fickell, who will lead the team against the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday at noon.

OSU is currently at 6-5, their worst season since Jim Tressel’s first year in 2001 at 7-5. If they lose Saturday, they’ll be 6-6, the worst record since John Cooper’s team posted that record in 1999.

Meyer is no stranger to Ohio or the Buckeyes, having grown up in Ashtabula, grew up a Buckeyes fan, worked on Earle Bruce’s staff in the 1980′s as has such admiration of Woody Hayes, the legendary coach, that he has his picture displayed in his home.

Meyer has won two national titles in 2006 and 2008 while at Florida.

He is currently employed by ESPN as an game and studio analyst.

The Buckeyes and Cornhuskers will be doing battle in Lincoln, Nebraska tonight.

The two programs are among only eight in the country with 800 or more wins. Nebraska is fourth with 841 and the Buckeyes have been victorious 834 times.

Nebraska is 4-1, 0-1 in the Big Ten and ranked #14 and 15 in the latest Associated Press and USA Today polls.

The Cornhuskers lost their first game of the season last Saturday night at #7 Wisconsin, 48-17.

The Huskers started the season with wins over Chattanooga (40-7), Fresno State (42-29), Washington (51-38) and at Wyoming (38-14).

As a team Nebraska leads the nation in kickoff returns at 30.5 yards a return and ranks ninth in rushing, racking up just under 250 yards per game.

Ameer Abdullah is the nation’s best return man at 35.1 yards per kick return and the 18th with 12.0 yards per punt return.

Running back Rex Burkhead and quarterback Taylor Martinez rank second and fourth in rushing in the Big Ten with 103.2 and 96.4 yards per game, respectively.

Bo Pelini, a graduate of Ohio State in 1990, is in his fourth season at Nebraska as the head coach with a 34-13 overall record. He has led the Cornhuskers to three straight bowl games: Gator (2008) and Holiday Bowls (2009, 2010).

Bo Pelini (courtesy of

Pelini was a four-year letterwinner as a defensive back for the Buckeyes under Earle Bruce and John Cooper from 1987 to 1990.

Pelini started in the OSU secondary his final two seasons, was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree and was a co-captain as a senior. Pelini received the “Bo Rein Award” as a senior, given to the teams’ most inspirational player. Pelini graduated with a degree in business administration in 1990.

Tonight’s game will mark the third time Pelini has coached against his alma mater. In 1991, the Youngstown, Ohio native was a graduate assistant for an Iowa team that beat OSU, 16-9, in Columbus. After taking the Nebraska head job in December of 2007, Pelini completed his role as defensive coordinator at LSU, helping to guide the Tigers to a 38-24 win over OSU in the BCS National Championship Game in New Orleans.


* Nebraska and Ohio State are meeting for just the third time and the first time in Lincoln. The Buckeyes own a 2-0 edge with a pair of wins in Columbus. Sixth-ranked Ohio State beat Nebraska, 28-20, in 1955 and the #8 Buckeyes beat Nebraska, 34-7, in 1956. The Cornhuskers has played every other Big Ten school more recently than Ohio State.

* Saturday’s game will be the fifth game in Nebraska history involving two teams with 800 all-time wins. Nebraska’s previous games between 800-win teams were three against Texas (2007, 2009, and 2010) and a 2010 game against Oklahoma.

Nebraska has two upcoming games this season against 800-win teams, November 12 at Penn State and November 19 at Michigan. Nebraska reached 800 wins during the 2006 season and has 841 wins all-time.

Nate Clements is now a Cincinnati Bengals player.

The 11-year NFL cornerback who is now 31 and has 30 interceptions and 5 touchdowns, is glad to be back in Ohio. He grew up in Shaker Heights, a Cleveland suburb, played at Ohio State under John Cooper.

Clements, who signed a two-year deal worth $10.5 million, was let go by the San Francisco 49ers in a salary-cap move, is 6’0, 209-pounds.


He was a 2004 Pro Bowl cornerback with the Buffalo Bills.

Last season with the 49ers, he had 82 tackles, three interceptions, three forced fumbles, a sack and 10 passes defensed.

Clements is very durable, playing in every game in eight of his 10 seasons.

The Bengals playing a 4-3 defense and the chance to return to Ohio were the factors in his signing with Cincinnati.
