OHIO STATE AT MIAMI (FL) GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes’ Brewster glad to play in home state of Florida

Ohio State All-American senior center Mike Brewster was born in Kansas, but moved to Florida early in his life. He is looking forward to the Buckeyes trip to Miami because he has not played in his home state since the high school days in Orlando.

Brewster is regarded as the best center in college football. He is a four-year starter with 38 career starts.

In 2010 he was the only junior to rank among the finalists for the Rimington Trophy, was a first team all-Big Ten selection and a FFWA and Phil Steele first team All-American.

This season Brewster was named to the preseason Playboy All-America team, the Rimington and Outland Trophy watch lists and was voted one of 12 “players to watch” by a Big Ten media panel.

Brewster was asked earlier week about the OSU offense, Miami’s history and their defense.

OSU GAMEDAY: Fickell earns first win as Buckeyes pound Akron, 42-0

Powered by Cincopa WordPress plugin

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Ohio State Buckeyes, shook off months of NCAA violations talk, Jim Tressel resigning, Terrelle Pryor jumping to the NFL,  seven player suspension and a young starting lineup with only 6 seniors and a first-year head coach to defeat the Akron Zips, 42-0.

With the victory, the Buckeyes gave 38-year-old Luke Fickell his first win as a head coach. Fickell is the sixth former OSU assistant to take over as a head coach.

The game was played in sweltering heat in Ohio Stadium. Temperatures were at 93 degrees with high humidity of 48%. The heat caused the referee, Dennis Lipski to leave the game in the first half and several fans had to be taken to the hospital.

The Buckeyes dominated the Zips in all stat categories: 27-5 in first downs, rushing yards 224-35, sacks 5-0 and Akron could only muster 90 yards of offense.

The top two stars of the game included 25-year-old quarterback Joe Bauserman, who was 12-of-16 passing for 163 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions.

Tight end Jake Stoneburner caught all three of Bauserman’s touchdown passes and in doing so, became the 8th Buckeye to score 3 in a game and the first from a tight end in the football program’s history.

The Buckeyes are 7-1 against Akron.


* Ohio State is 31-2 in its last 33 season-openers.

* OSU is 53-5 at Ohio Stadium since the start of the 2002 season.

* OSU has won 55 straight regular-season non-conference home games against teams not ranked in the AP Top 25.

* Ohio State has an all-time opening game record of 105-12-4.

* All-time, the Buckeyes are 109-8-4 in home openers since 1890.

* Ohio State has 820 wins all-time, the fifth-most among FBS teams.

*  Senior center Mike Brewster, senior right tackle J.B. Shugarts and junior defensive tackle John Simon served as game captains.

SPRING FOOTBALL Q & A FEATURE: Ohio State Offensive Lineman Justin Boren

Spring Football is upon us here in the Columbus, Ohio area and Buckeye fans want to know what’s going on with their offensive line.

The offensive line is a position that returns seven of the top nine players from the 2009 season, including four regular starters. Gone is 33-game multiple position starter Jim Cordle and reserve Andrew Moses. But returning are players who combined for 55 cumulative starts last season:

* LT- Mike Adams 6’8, 300, Jr., four starts in 2009.

* LT- Andrew Miller 6’6, 288, Sr., three starts in 2009.

* RG-Bryant Browning 6’4, 313, Sr., 13 starts in 2009; 26 starts in a row.

* C-Mike Brewster 6’5, 293, Jr., 13 starts in 2009; 23 consecutive starts.

* RG-Justin Boren 6’3, 320, Sr., 12 starts in 2009; 26 career starts.

* RT-J.B. Shugarts 6’7, 297, Jr., 10 starts in 2009; 10 career starts.

Justin Boren was a first-team all-Big Ten by the media last season and honorable mention as a sophomore in 2007, Brewster was on the Rimington watch list, and Browning was honorable mention all-Big Ten.

This core of lineman helped Ohio State to eight games of 200-or-more rushing yards last season, a record for a Jim Tressel-coached Ohio State team.

A look ahead to the 2010 Ohio State football season,  Marshall University will provide the opposition in the opening game of the season on September 2.

The Thundering Herd are coming off a 7-6 season, their first winning record since 2004. That record still wasn’t enough to save Mark Snyder, the former OSU defensive coordinator who resigned as head coach prior to the team’s Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl win over Ohio University.

Replacing Snyder, Marshall hired John “Doc” Holliday, who knows a little bit more about Ohio State. He was on Urban Meyer’s staff at Florida when the Gators rolled to a 41-14 win over the Buckeyes in the 2007 BCS National Championship Game.

Holliday was also recruiting coordinator for Meyer, and he has already attracted what many experts say is Marshall’s best recruiting class in years. That will help plug some holes created by the departure of such All-Conference USA performers as tight end Cody Slate, linebacker Mario Harvey and kicker Craig Ratanamorn.
