OHIO STATE AT MICHIGAN GAMEDAY: Buckeyes hang tough but can’t overcome Robinson, Wolverines


ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN — Coming into Saturday’s rivalry game between Ohio State and Michigan, most fans and media felt that the Wolverines would run away with game considering the Buckeyes troubles on offense and their injury-riddled defense which has had troubles stopping teams at times this season.

But against Michigan, the Buckeyes had very little trouble moving the ball. They totaled 372 total offensive yards, 137 on the ground and 235 through the air and were 3-for-3 in the red zone.

But the Wolverines were slightly better as they finally ended OSU’s 7-game winning streak in the series with a 40-34 win. The game was one of the most exciting in the series. Most of the games have been blowouts by Ohio State.

The OSU defense could not contain Wolverine QB Denard Robinson who accounted for 5 touchdowns, was 14 of 17 passing for 167 yards and at one point in the game completed 11 straight passes. He ran 26 times for 170 yards with 2 TD’s and lost a fumble.

In this game, the Buckeyes did not have Terrelle Pryor and Jim Tressel and Michigan’s quarterback was better than OSU’s signal-caller for a change. That was the difference.

Michigan’s offense was unstoppable at times. They totaled 444 total yards, 277 on the ground, 167 passing and were 4-for-4 in the red zone.

This game was coming-out party of sorts for Buckeyes’ freshman quarterback Braxton Miller. He showed improvement in his passing. Yes, he did miss on some deep balls, but he was 14 for 25 for 235 yards with 2 TD’s and 1 interception. On the ground, Miller rushed 16 times for 100 yards and scored a touchdown.

After the game rumors started heating up that Urban Meyer is set to become the next coach at Ohio State and that there would be a team meeting on Sunday night around 9 pm.

Bengals finally unload unhappy Palmer; Raiders offer too good to pass on


Carson Palmer (file photo)

After walking out on the Cincinnati Bengals when the 2010 season ended, Carson Palmer knew after demanding a trade or not play and retire demand that he could never walk back into the locker room and face his teammates. Furthermore, he had resigned himself to the fact that the team would never trade him.

Bengals owner Mike Brown said that he would deal with Palmer in his timetable and not the player and his agent’s. Well, Brown waited 10 months, the lockout, preseason and the first six games of the season to finally dump Palmer which is good for everybody.

Palmer received the message on Tuesday morning that he had been traded to the Oakland Raiders to replace the injured Jason Campbell.

The Raiders gave the Bengals in return, a 2012 first-round pick and a conditional second-rounder in 2012 that can become another first if Oakland makes it to the AFC title game in either of the next two years.

Head coach Hue Jackson knows Palmer well, having coached him at USC and with the Bengals while as an assistant coach.

The Raiders, just like the Bengals are 4-2, became quite desperate for a quarterback after Campbell broke his collarbone in Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns. Campbell had surgery on Monday and will miss at least six weeks, which left the Raiders with erratic Kyle Boller and the unproven Terrelle Pryor.

The Raiders immediately re-worked Palmer’s contract, giving him a $2.5 million guaranteed deal for the rest of the season, $12.5 million with $5 million guaranteed in 2012, $13 million in 2013 and $15 million in 2014.

Mike Brown and the Bengals organization had a tough stance towards trading Palmer who wanted out of the losing organization which has had two winning season in the past 20 years. They did not want to reward Palmer for holding out and for demanding his way.

But the Bengals management knew that the Raiders offer was too good to pass on; Cincinnati fans were upset that Palmer walked out and quit and there were some players who did not want to be identified during the preseason, did not want Palmer to return. Also, the big picture is that rookie quarterback Andy Dalton has played well with the young offensive receivers. So the trade was a no-brainer.

In the end, Palmer gets to play in his homestate of California and the Bengals get two draft choices that can help them build a consistent winner.

5-game suspension over, controversial Pryor ready to go for Raiders

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has completed his five-game suspension and is now eligible to practice with the team.

The Raiders do not have to make a roster move immediately due to a one-game roster exemption.

Pryor, who has been one of the centerpieces of the Ohio State football scandal the past several months, had to serve the suspension to start his rookie season when he was allowed to be included in the supplemental draft. The 22-year-old Pryor left OSU instead of serving a five-game punishment after being involved in a cash-for-memorabilia scandal that has put the Buckeyes under NCAA scrutiny, investigation and public ridicule.

Pryor was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the supplemental draft on August 22. He has not been allowed to practice with his team since the end of preseason, but has been attending meetings and working on individual drills.

OSU 37 COLORADO 17 GAME REVIEW: Miller proves he should be #1 QB


Colorado coach Jon Embree said special teams was the key Saturday (

Ohio State football fans got what they’ve wanted all season; freshman QB sensation Braxton Miller as the number-1 man playing an entire game and leading the team to a win.

The athletic and exciting phenom from Huber Heights, Ohio, gave the Buckeyes a much-needed lift after the team lost the 24-6 debacle to Miami last weekend.

We seen this twice before at Ohio State as an athletic quarterback replaces a pure-passer: Troy Smith replaced Justin Zwick; Terrelle Pryor replaced Todd Boeckman and now Miller replacing Joe Bauserman.

In the 37-17 win over new Pacific-12 Conference member, Colorado.

Miller, making his first collegiate start, wasn’t spectacular throwing the ball, but he was 5 of 13 passing for 83 yards and rushed 17 times for 83 yards. He threw two touchdown passes to Devin Smith. He moved the team up-and-down the field with the poise of a senior.

Head coach Luke Fickell said after the game that Miller is the starting quarterback from here-on-out.

The Buckeyes defense held the Buffaloes from gaining a first down until they were up 17-0.

The 3-1 Buckeyes dominated the special teams as Jordan Hall had a 90-yard kickoff return.

* OSU has 822 wins all-time, the fifth-most among FBS schools.

* The Buckeyes were 5-of-6 in the red zone, with three touchdowns and two field goals.

* Ohio State held Colorado to 3-of-13 on third down conversions.

* The Buffaloes had only two possessions inside the red zone against the Buckeye defense.

* Colorado tailback Rodney Stewart, a Columbus Brookhaven High School graduate, ran for 96 All-purpose yards on 11 rushes for 55 yards on offense, 5 catches for 27 as a receiver and 2 punt returns for 14 yards.

He moved into third place on the CU all-time rushing yards list, closing the game with 3,022 yards; he passed Bobby Purify (2000-04) with 3,016 and is right behind Rashaan Salaam (1992-94) with 3,057 for second place.

He is still second in career rushes with 692. His offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy leads with 699. Stewart’s five receptions gives him 71 career receptions, now second most by a running back at Colorado as he passed Lawrence Vickers (2002-05) on Saturday.

His 702 receiving yards are also second by a running back, as he passed up Cortlen Johnson (1998-2001) with 691 and Lee Rouson (1980-84) with 699 on Saturday. Up next is Herchell Troutman (1994-97) with 725.

* There is no real way to research this, but Colorado head coach Jon Embree might be the first collegiate head coach to face three schools who all appear on his first schedule that he chose his alma mater over.

Back in January 1983, when Embree, along with a dozen other top prospects in Colorado, chosen then CU-head coach Bill McCartney and his vision for the program. The high school All-American from Englewood Cherry Creek High School then committed and signed with the Buffaloes, and in selecting Colorado over Ohio State, Southern California and UCLA, all of whom are opponents on his first schedule as a head coach.

The Indianapolis Colts have decided not to use former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel as a replay consultant until the seventh game of the season.

Colts vice chairman Bill Polian said earlier this week that Tressel won’t join the team officially until late October. The team last week announced it had hired Tressel as a game-day consultant to help determine when the team should challenge plays with a video review.

Over the past weekend, Colts owner Jim Irsay, head coach Jim Caldwell, Polian and Tressel dicussed the situation with NFL officials.

The Colts management team said that questions were raised with respect to of should he serve a suspension like Terrelle Pryor of the Oakland Raiders who is serving a five-game suspension and the other Ohio State players for NCAA rules violations. If Tressel were still at Ohio State, he would be serving a five-game suspension.
