Four Ohio State players played in the Senior Bowl on Saturday afternoon for the North squad, RB Daniel Herron, WR DeVier Posey, OC Michael Brewster and OL Mike Adams.

But the real star of the game came from the University of Cincinnati.

Pead set a Senior Bowl record in the first half with 98 yards on two punt returns.

Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass and threw for 115 yards.

PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Posey’s return could help offense against Sukay & Still


DeVier Posey finally back at WR

Nick Sukay has three INT's

Devon Still leads BTC with 16.5 TFL's

The Ohio State offense will finally get back veteran wide receiver DeVier Posey, a senior.

Earlier this week, head coach Luke Fickell was asked if Posey would start in his first game back in the lineup after serving two different NCAA suspensions. Fickell on Tuesday said he did not know.

We all know that Mike Adams and Daniel Herron started their first games back and my guess is Posey will because Ohio State will need him against a solid Penn State defense.

OSU will go up against a defense that leads the Big Ten in interceptions with 14; free safety Nick Sukay has three to lead the team. Up front, Devon Still, a certain first-round NFL draft pick is looming. He ranks second in the BTC in tackles for loss with 16.5.

The Buckeyes have been trying to go deep so much with Braxton Miller with little success. What OSU needs is to go to a short passing game featuring slants, curls and jailbreak screens like Purdue did last week.

The OSU running attack of Herron, Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde will be tough to stop as well.

SPORTS SPOTLIGHT: Ohio State Spring Football wrapup with Mike Brewster, offensive lineman

The Ohio State Buckeyes Spring Football Season has come and gone and the offense can brag that it beat the defense, 59-27 before 44,276 in Ohio State last Saturday.

The battle for the starting quarterback position due to Terrelle Pryor’s five-game suspension to start the season, seems to be in the hands of Braxton Miller who outplayed everybody who was competing against him.

Miller had four possessions of the football and led the offense on scoring drives three of the four times. He directed a 92-yard touchdown drive, threw a 15-yard TD pass to end another and avoided sacks, turnovers and made plays just like the elusive Pryor.

Any questions about him, was answered in the game and he seems ready to play right away.

There are still questions about other positions on the team, especially the offensive line. Plenty of questions going into fall camp. Mike Adams will be serving a five-game suspension, plus two starters and two key backups are gone. This group lacks numbers especially this spring. There are four freshman coming in the fall, but there will only be six players with experience when the opening game gets underway. One of the new players will have to occupy the left tackle position, the quarterback’s blind spot.

Center Michael Brewster is back to anchor the line as a four-year starter. Two new players who have emerged this spring are guards Jack Mewhort and Corey Linsley.

Copeting at the all-important left tackle spot is Andrew Norwell and Marcus Hall who are experienced and played very solid this spring.

37-year-old Luke Fickell, a former Ohio State football star nose guard, has always been on that list of head coaches-to-be, will be getting a chance this spring and early fall to show what he’s made of.

Ohio State announced at the official Spring Football press conference that Fickell has been promoted to assistant head coach. That promotion means Fickell will serve as the interim coach for at least the first five games during the 2011 season while head coach Jim Tressel serves a suspension for violating NCAA rules.

Fickell has always been a fan-favorite because of his local ties. A Columbus, Ohio native and DeSales High School graduate, Fickell started 50 straight games for the Buckeyes at nose guard in the mid 1990′s, will making those game day decisions that goes with the job of being head coach.

Fickell, in his 10th season as an Ohio State assistant, he will have several decisions to make; who’ll replace Terrelle Pryor, Daniel Herron, DeVier Posey, Mike Adams and Solomon Thomas in the starting lineup. Those five players will be serving five-game suspensions as well for violating NCAA rules.
