Wright State guard Mays to transfer for senior season to possibly Purdue

When Julius Mays arrived at Wright State after playing two years at North Carolina State, he said he would be able to be a leader on a young team.

Well, all of that is past tense as after playing only one season, he is taking advantage of an NCAA rule that allows a graduating player to transfer to another school if he is pursuing another degree if he has eligibility remaining.

The 6’2″ 195 lb guard  Mays will  graduating in June, which means that as long as the school he transfers to offers a graduate program that Wright State doesn’t, he will be eligible to play immediately instead of sitting out a year. Purdue does offer a graduate program and has two scholarships available.

Mays is a native of Marion, Indiana.

His totals for the Raiders were very respectable, 30 games played, 33.4 minutes per game, 14.1 points per game, .832 free throw percentage and .424 3-point field goal percentage.

The Raiders will miss his leadership and scoring abilities.

Much-maligned Bollman headed to Boston College

Former offensive coordinator Jim Bollman, who took the brunt of criticism during the 2011 season at Ohio State for not being a great play-caller, has landed another job with the Boston College Eagles.

Bollman’s new position will be as the offensive line coach and running-game coordinator.

Everybody who covered and followed the Buckeyes team, knew that Bollman was an offensive coordinator by name only as former head coach Jim Tressel called all the plays.

But when Tressel resigned in May due to NCAA violations, Bollman had to take over an offense that had inexperienced quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers and was missing Daniel Herron at tailback and Devier Posey at wideout and it was obvious Bollman had no clue at what to do as the offense struggled against Miami (FL), Michigan State, Purdue and Penn State en route to a 6-7 record, the first losing season at Ohio State in 23 years.

Bollman told the media that he interviewed for the job a few weeks ago with Eagles head coach Frank Spaziani. He has never worked with Spaziani but they’ve known each other for years.

Boston College is coming off a bad season of their own in 2011 at 4-8 overall, 3-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The Dayton Flyers defeated the Minnesota Golden Gophers 86-70 to capture the 2011 Old Spice Classic championship in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, which is in the Orlando area.

Five Flyers scored in double figures led by the Old Spice Most Valuable Player, Kevin Dillard. Dillard scored 19 points, 10 assists and career-highs with seven steals and three blocks.

Josh Parker put in 12 points and Luke Fabrizius scored 11 as the Flyers won their fourth in a row and improved to a 5-1 overall record.

The Old Spice Classic is Dayton’s 12th in-season tournament title. UD has won three of the last five it has participated in and is the first since taking the 2008 Chicago Invitational Challenge.

The Flyers improved to 14-5 against BCS programs over the previous five years and has won eight of the last nine.

In the program’s history, Dayton had never beaten a Big Ten team by double-figures prior to the game against Minnesota. It was their first win against a Big Ten team since winning at Illinois during a run to the 2010 NIT crown. This was their first regular-season win over a Big Ten school since knocking off Purdue in 2001-02 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Dayton led at the half 37-28, using a 25-5 run to the first 20 minutes.

The Flyers led by as many as 18 points in the second half.

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.

OHIO STATE AT PURDUE GAMEWEEK: Purdue offense tries to control OSU defense

The Ohio State defensive line of John Simon, Johnathan Hankins, Garrett Goebel, Adam Bellamy, Michael Bennett and Solomon Thomas are probably licking their chops as they get ready to go up against Purdue’s offensive unit which has struggled in certain games this season.

The Boilers passing attack is ninth in the Big Ten at 192 yards per game. The rushing attack is seventh with 174 yards per game.

Purdue’s offensive line has been banged up during the season and it has two quarterbacks in Robert Marve and Caleb TerBush.

At running back they have Ralph Bolden who is a weapon. But a knee injury in 2010 has hurt his big-play ability.

At wide receiver, they spread the ball between Justin Siller, O.J. Ross and Antavian Edison.

The Buckeyes should get constant pressure on the Purdue quarterbacks which can lead to turnovers.
