It seemed like yesterday that the Ohio State Football team ended its season the Orange Bowl back in January.

Well, don’t look now, Buckeyes Spring Football is just around the corner and everybody’s favorite quarterback may not participate.

Spring practice will begin on March 4, this first of 15 practices which will culminate with the annual Spring Game on April 12 at Ohio Stadium.

Buckeyes QB Braxton Miller, according to a football program spokesperson, underwent a minor surgical outpatient procedure on his throwing shoulder at the Wexner Medical Center. The injury was believed to have occured in January 3 Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida.

The procedure could limit Miller’s participation during the upcoming spring practices.

This will give other quarterback’s a chance in trying to replace the popular and graduated Kenny Guiton as the backup to Miller. The candidates include Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and Stephen Collier.

It is believed that Jones has the leg-up on the competition. writer adds another MLB ballpark to his list

Marlins Park, MLB’s newest stadium, is located on 17 acres of Miami’s former Orange Bowl in Little Havana. It is 2 miles west of downtown Miami. The stadium has a retractable roof to deal with Miami’s rainy season. It seats only 37,442 fans, the third-smallest stadium in Major League Baseball.

For the second straight week, Colorado lost on a last-second field goal as Pat O’Morrow kicked a 19-yarder with 25 seconds left to give the Buckeyes a 13-10 win.

The week before, Oregon beat the Buffaloes in Eugene on a 35-yard field goal as time expired.

A crowd of 88,404 in 79-degree, partly cloudy conditions witnessed Ohio State (1-2) put together a 13-play, 78-yard drive to set up the late field goal with the key play coming on third-and-11 from the CU 23-yard line with 1:37 remaining in the game.

OSU quarterback Jim Karsatos threw an incomplete pass to Jamie Holland. The Buffaloes were flagged for pass interference (CB David Tate), which gave the Buckeyes, first-and-goal from the 8-yard line. Four plays later O’Morrow kicked the game winner.

In the fourth quarter, CU went on a 13-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a 19-yard touchdown pass from Mark Hatcher to Lance Carl on third-and-17 to tie the game at 10-10 with 5:21 remaining.

The Buckeyes then went on their game-winning drive as Vince Workman rushed for 20 yards on the drive.

Hatcher was intercepted by Sonny Gordon on Colorado’s final drive before Karsatos kneeled once to close out the game.

The game was played in 2 hours, 35 minutes.


* OSU leads the series 3-1, including three straight; Colorado won the first meeting in 1971 in Columbus before the Buckeyes won the 1977 Orange Bowl and won in Boulder in 1985.

* Bill McCartney was the head coach of the Buffaloes at the time.
