With win against Marshall behind them, Buckeyes look ahead to Miami Hurricanes

Buckeyes LB Ross Homan talks to media (megasportsnews.com)

The Ohio State Buckeyes rolled Marshall on Thursday night 45-7. Their next opponent, the Miami Hurricanes came through as well, a 45-0 shellacking of Florida A&M.

Both teams were able to escape their opening games without any major injuries. Which sets up their showdown for Week 2 of the young college season.

Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel had a solid formula working on offense where they had good balance by distributing the ball to all of their playmakers. The defense shutdown Marshall’s spread offense and had a plus-three in turnovers.

Shortly after their game with the Thundering Herd, the Buckeyes quickly turned their attention to Miami and their showdown on September 11 in the Horseshoe against the 13th-ranked Hurricanes.

It’ll be the first meeting between Miami and Ohio State since the 2002 national championship game.

Ohio State prevailed in that game in the Arizona desert, by upsetting the top-ranked Hurricanes 31-24 in double-overtime for Ohio State’s first national championship in 34 years.

Buckeye Pitchers Bounce Back, Top Marshall 7-4

MEGASPORTSNEWS.COM GAME COVERAGE

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.

GAME NOTES:

* 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.

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.
