With win against Marshall behind them, Buckeyes look ahead to Miami Hurricanes

Buckeyes LB Ross Homan talks to media (

The Ohio State Buckeyes rolled Marshall on Thursday night 45-7. Their next opponent, the Miami Hurricanes came through as well, a 45-0 shellacking of Florida A&M.

Both teams were able to escape their opening games without any major injuries. Which sets up their showdown for Week 2 of the young college season.

Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel had a solid formula working on offense where they had good balance by distributing the ball to all of their playmakers. The defense shutdown Marshall’s spread offense and had a plus-three in turnovers.

Shortly after their game with the Thundering Herd, the Buckeyes quickly turned their attention to Miami and their showdown on September 11 in the Horseshoe against the 13th-ranked Hurricanes.

It’ll be the first meeting between Miami and Ohio State since the 2002 national championship game.

Ohio State prevailed in that game in the Arizona desert, by upsetting the top-ranked Hurricanes 31-24 in double-overtime for Ohio State’s first national championship in 34 years.

* Ohio State is 12-1-1 against current members of Conference USA.

Dayton Flyers Football opens 2010 with 28-14 win over Robert Morris

The University of Dayton football team jumped out to a 21-0 halftime lead and then scored a critical four-quarter touchdown to defeat Robert Morris, 28-14 Saturday in the season opener for both teams.

Flyer quarterback Steve Valentino ran for 106 yards and was 19-for-37 passing for 211 yards and two TD’s. However, it was what Valentino did after a mistake that was the critical play of the game.

With Robert Morris having scored two unanswered touchdowns to make it a 21-14 game, Colonial safety Michael Landers intercepted Valentino’s pass near midfield and like he was going to tie the game with the interception down the right sideline. But Valentino ran him down, stood him up and stripped the ball from him where Tyler Hujik recovered the fumble back for the Flyers at their own 19.

UD then drove 81 yards in 10 plays to score a touchdown that would put it back in the driver’s seat. Over the last seven-and-a-half minutes, the Dayton defense allowed just three first downs, and two of them were by penalty.

After Dayton fumbled the ball away at its own 30 on the first play of the game, the new-look defense was tested early, denying Robert Morris a first down and forcing a field goal attempt that was wide and got into the swirling winds at Welcome Stadium. The Flyers offense bounced back with a 74-yard drive to open the scoring. Valentino’s 48-yard run set up Andrew Zapinski’s two-yard run to make it 7-0 after the first quarter.

A pair of Valentino touchdown passes in the second quarter sent Dayton to the locker room with a 21-0 lead. With 8:26 left in the half, he found Justin Watkins for a 24-yard touchdown on a fourth-and-10, wrapping up a 94-yard, 13-play drive. The drive matched UD’s longest scoring drive in seven years (the Flyers also had a 94-yard drive at Drake in 2007). After holding the Colonials to a three-and-out, Dayton scored again as Valentino connected with Nick Collins for a 4-yard TD with 40 seconds before halftime.

Robert Morris scored on a 92-yard scoring drive when Jeff Sinclair hit a wide open Anthony Coleman for a 33-yard TD. Three plays later Rolf Bathold took an interception 37 yards to the six. On fourth-and-goal, Sinclair spun in from the one to make it 21-14 less than a minute into the fourth quarter, setting the stage for Valentino’s game-changing play, which led to Dayton’s game-clinching drive and a Brian Mack three-yard run to make the final score 21-14.

Mack rushed for 60 yards on 12 carries and Watkins caught a career-high nine passes for 95 yards.

The Dayton Flyers returned just three starters from the 2009 season’s top-ranked defense in the Pioneer Football League, but the new players carried the day for UD. Redshirt sophomore cornerback Matt Pfieger, who was areceiver in 2009, led the way with six tackles (five solo).

Dayton outgained Robert Morris, who is picked to finish second in the Northeast Conference, 388 to 213, and had 26 first downs while allowing 13.

Dayton will be on the road to Pittsburgh next week, playing its second straight NEC team when they take on Duquesne. Game time is 12 noon.


* Dayton leads the series with Robert Morris 11-2, and has won the last seven meetings.

* UD has not been shut out in a school-record 376 straight games, the best such active string in all of college football. The last team to shut out the Flyers was Marshall, 9-0, on October 16, 1976. That is also the all-time FCS record.

* Dayton head coach Rick Chamberlin has been a part of 313 of UD’s 613 wins, 26 as a player, 268 as an assistant coach, and 19 as a head.

* The Dayton Flyers moved to Welcome Stadium in 1974. The word “Welcome” implies hospitality, but UD has been anything but hospitable to its opponents at home, where it is 194-40-2 (.825). The “Welcome” is not a greeting, but an honor to the late Percival Welcome, longtime Athletic Director for the Dayton Public Schools.

Clippers add a final win in Indianapolis, 4-1

Columbus ran its current winning streak to four games, using solid pitching and a huge third inning to earn a 13th and final win in 2010 against the Indianapolis Indians, 4-1. With the win, the Clippers could now earn a spot in the International League playoffs as early as Thursday.

Corey Kluber stepped into the rotation spot vacated by Carlos Carrasco’s promotion to Cleveland and was solid in six innings of pitching. He up just one run on four hits, while striking out four.

The Louisville Bats kept pace with Columbus in the IL West Division with a win last night as well. The Bats trail by a 1/2 game, but the division loser will likely get a wild card berth.

The Clippers return home for the final two regular season games at Huntington Park Thursday and Friday. First pitch on Thursday is set for 4:35 p.m., moved up because of the Ohio State football game with Marshall. David Huff (7-2) for Columbus against Toledo’s Charlie Furbush (3-3).

Buckeye Pitchers Bounce Back, Top Marshall 7-4


Columbus, Ohio – You needed a program to keep track of the number of funks that the baseball Buckeyes snapped out of Wednesday night, as they topped Marshall 7-4.  OSU had lost four of their last five, and been thrashed 14-3 last year and 17-1 earlier this year by the Thundering Herd.  The Buckeyes, who had given up 32 runs in their last two games against Penn State, are now  23-13.  Marshall is 20-22, losing their second game in as many days, after winning seven straight.

Zach Hurley (osu)

Freshman Brett McKinney bounced back from a four-run/three walk/no-outs-recorded relief appearance Sunday against Penn State, allowing no hits and two walks in a five-inning start.  Theron Minium and Jared Strayer followed McKinney and gave up two hits each, and were helped by double plays in the 6th and 7th.

The Buckeyes roughed up Ben Frith for five runs in the first.  Michael Stephens’ groundout scored Zach Hurley, who led off the game with his team-leading 17th double.  Ryan Dew singled in Cory Kovanda, and two batters later, Brian DeLucia crushed a three-run homer to left center.  DeLucia’s 38 RBI’s lead the Buckeyes.

The Buckeyes loaded the bases on three singles in the 7th, and scored twice on Mike Cavilli wild pitches.  Marshall scored their first run on a Strayer wild pitch in the 8th.  The Herd’s Rhett Stafford singled in two runs in the 9th, and Eric Semeniuk another off Eric Best, but Best struck out Kris Hecktor with two on to end the game.


* The Buckeyes have now won five of six games when Brian DeLucia has hit a home run. The only game Ohio State did not win was the middle game against Indiana when the junior hit a grand slam.

* Ohio State moved to 10-2 on the season when leading after the first inning.

* DeLucia leads the Buckeyes with nine multiple RBI games this season and six in his last nine games.

* The Buckeyes moved to 16-2 against Marshall all-time after dropping the last two against the Thundering Herd.

* Hurley extended his team-leading hitting streak to 13 games.

*Cory Rupert has now reached base safely in all 26 starts this season.
