2010 OHIO STATE FOOTBALL:Week 1 Marshall University Thundering Herd invade Ohio Stadium Thursday night


The Marshall University Thundering Herd under new head coach John “Doc” Holiday, will invade Ohio Stadium this Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. with the Big Ten Network broadcasting the game.

The Herd ended the 2009 season by winning the Little Caesars Bowl in Detroit’s Ford Field, 21-17 over the Ohio Bobcats of the Mid-American Conference.

With the 2010 season upon us, the Thundering Herd faces an very ambitious non-conference schedule which not only features the Ohio State Buckeyes, but it’ll be followed up with three other bowl teams from 2009: in-state rival West Virginia, Bowling Green and a rematch of the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, Ohio University.

Then Marshall will get into Conference USA action at East Division favorite Southern Mississippi followed by a home game on October 13 with Central Florida, another top contender in the C-USA East Division. The new coaching staff will definitely have their hands full with the opening stretch of games that will determine whether Marshall improves on it’s 7-6 record of 2009 or falls back into a losing mode.

Speaking of coaching staff, First-year head coach Doc Holliday has brought in veteran coach Bill Legg, who along with Tony Peterson will coordinate the offense that will be switching from a physical running attack to a more wide-open spread the field type unit.

QB Brian Anderson started all 13 games in 2009 and threw for 2,646 yards, however only 14 touchdowns came from that yardage and he did throw an alarming 13 interceptions. A.J. Graham, a former Mr. Football in Florida, emerged during spring football to put a serious challenge to Anderson’s starting spot.

Marshall was second among Conference USA teams in total defense, allowing 371.8 yards per game, and was third in scoring defense at 24.3 points.

Seven starters are expected back from the defensive unit, but one high-profile veteran’s status was uncertain at the end of spring football.

CB DeQuan Bembry may have been the best play on the Herd defense a year ago because when a play needed to be made, he made it. He led the team in tackles for a loss (7.5), pass breakups (11) and ranked third in tackles (80). However, Bembry was arrested in early April and has been suspended indefinitely. He is not listed on any Marshall fall rosters.

Marshall plays their home games at Joan C. Edwards Stadium in Huntington, West Virginia. The stadium seats 38,109 and during the Byron Leftwich, Chad Pennington years under Bob Pruett, that stadium was filled to capacity. But under the head coaching tenure of Mark Snyder, the team’s play was up-and-down and the attendance slacked off. Last year’s average home attendance in six games was 22,236 fans per game.

Buckeye Pitchers Bounce Back, Top Marshall 7-4


Columbus, Ohio – You needed a program to keep track of the number of funks that the baseball Buckeyes snapped out of Wednesday night, as they topped Marshall 7-4.  OSU had lost four of their last five, and been thrashed 14-3 last year and 17-1 earlier this year by the Thundering Herd.  The Buckeyes, who had given up 32 runs in their last two games against Penn State, are now  23-13.  Marshall is 20-22, losing their second game in as many days, after winning seven straight.

Freshman Brett McKinney bounced back from a four-run/three walk/no-outs-recorded relief appearance Sunday against Penn State, allowing no hits and two walks in a five-inning start.  Theron Minium and Jared Strayer followed McKinney and gave up two hits each, and were helped by double plays in the 6th and 7th.

The Buckeyes roughed up Ben Frith for five runs in the first.  Michael Stephens’ groundout scored Zach Hurley, who led off the game with his team-leading 17th double.  Ryan Dew singled in Cory Kovanda, and two batters later, Brian DeLucia crushed a three-run homer to left center.  DeLucia’s 38 RBI’s lead the Buckeyes.

The Buckeyes loaded the bases on three singles in the 7th, and scored twice on Mike Cavilli wild pitches.  Marshall scored their first run on a Strayer wild pitch in the 8th.  The Herd’s Rhett Stafford singled in two runs in the 9th, and Eric Semeniuk another off Eric Best, but Best struck out Kris Hecktor with two on to end the game.


* The Buckeyes have now won five of six games when Brian DeLucia has hit a home run. The only game Ohio State did not win was the middle game against Indiana when the junior hit a grand slam.

* Ohio State moved to 10-2 on the season when leading after the first inning.

* DeLucia leads the Buckeyes with nine multiple RBI games this season and six in his last nine games.

* The Buckeyes moved to 16-2 against Marshall all-time after dropping the last two against the Thundering Herd.

* Hurley extended his team-leading hitting streak to 13 games.

*Cory Rupert has now reached base safely in all 26 starts this season.
