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


Colorado coach Jon Embree said special teams was the key Saturday (

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.

* 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.

NFL GAME RESULTS: Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns lose exhibition games


Carson Palmer and the rest of the Bengals offensive unit showed a few new wrinkles at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York. It was not enough as the Buffalo Bills defeated the Cincinnati Bengals, 35-20.

Cincinnati’s first team offense ran 19 plays and amassed 135 yards. Palmer was 9 of 11 for 95 yards, and had touchdown passes to Jermaine Gresham and Chad Ochocinco and finished with a quarterback rating of 142.2.

After Adam Jones took the opening kickoff 52 yards to the Bills 47-yard line, Palmer drove the Bengals to a touchdown in five plays. With the ball on the Buffalo 9, Bills linebacker Andra Davis couldn’t keep up with Bengals rookie tight end Jermaine Gresham who scored his first NFL touchdown. Gresham had four receptions for 45 yards.

After Buffalo tied the game up on a Roscoe Parrish 12-yard touchdown catch on a Trent Edwards pass, the Bengals drove down the field in nine plays. They scored when Chad Ochocinco shook off stumbling defender Leodis McKelvin and caught it in the back left corner of the end zone from 6 yards out.

The Bengals, now 2-2 on the preseason, wraps up that portion of the season Thursday at Indianapolis.

The Cleveland Browns have improved in some areas this preseason. But Saturday’s game against the Detroit Lions show that much work is still needed to even get to a .500 record in the upcoming season.

Saturday night at Ford Field, the Browns lost three fumbles and allowed three touchdown drives in the second half as the Detroit Lions came away with a 35-27 win.

Jake Delhomme Browns QB (NFL)

With their starters playing, Cleveland scored on three of their five possessions, running 41 plays to Detroit’s 18 and at one point held a 24-14 leasd at halftime.

The Browns scored a touchdowns when Detroit running back Kevin Smith got stripped of the ball and Eric Wright returned it 44 yards for a touchdown.

Jack Delhomme operating out of the no-huddle offense with constant formation motion and shifting of players, thrived as he compiled a third straight 100-plus passer rating performance, completing 20 of 25 passes for 125 yards, with one touchdown to fullback Lawrence Vickers.

Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford had a nice game, connecting with Bryant Johnson on a fade over Sheldon Brown for a touchdown from 7 yards out on the Lion’s third play from scrimmage. Stafford never got sacked, while completing 13 of 17 passes for 141 yards and one touchdown.

In three exhibition games, Cleveland has not stopped any opposing quarterbacks, allowwing them to complete 30 of 36 passes.

Browns show offense at Green Bay; Dawson wins game with 2FG’s in final 1:27

Eventhough it’s just the exhibition season, the Cleveland Browns showed they’ve improved just against the Green Bay Packers alone.

In 2009, in two meetings the Browns lost to the Packers 17-0 in the preseason and 31-3 in the regular season.

At venerable Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Saturday night, Cleveland pulled out the win,27-24 as reliable kicker Phil Dawson made field goals of 58 and 46 yards in the final 1:27; the game-winner was good as time expired from the game clock.

Jake Delhomme Browns QB (NFL)

The Browns offense was very good and very productive scoring on their first two possessions and three of their first four. Plus, there were no penalties.

New quarterback Jake Delhomme took the first series and led the team 80 yards in 11 plays. Delhomme completed 6 of 7 passes,  throwing three completions to Mohammed Massaquoi and twice to Ohio State product Brian Robiske. Jerome Harrison scored the touchdown from 4 yards out on big block from fullback Lawrence Vickers.

Backup quarterback Seneca Wallace came on in relief of Delhomme and all he did was kept the offense moving and scoring.

The mobile Wallace kept the Packers off-balance enough to throw touchdown passes of 13 yards to Brian Robiske and after a nice pump fake, a 20 yarder to Ben Watson.

In three possessions, Wallace was 4 of 8 passing for 72 yards and two touchdowns.

The Packers could not run the ball at all gaining 14 yards on seven attempts in the first half.

The Browns did have trouble with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers who completed 12 of 13 passes for 159 yards and one touchdown.
