MICHIGAN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes ready for Cousins & Cunningham


QB Kirk Cousins

The Big Ten Conference season begins this coming Saturday, as the Michigan State Spartans travel to Columbus, Ohio for a 3:30 p.m. contest on ABC-TV in Ohio Stadium.

Both teams survived the pre-conference schedule with 3-1 records.

The October 1 game marks the 40th meeting between Michigan State and Ohio State. The Buckeyes lead the series 27-12, including a 13-7 record in games played in Columbus. The Buckeyes have won seven in a row and 12 of the last 14 meetings. The Spartans last win in the series came on November 6, 1999, 23-7 in Spartan Stadium. The last MSU win in Columbus came over the #1 ranked Buckeyes on November 7, 1998, 28-24.

The top two players getting the ink for Michigan State is QB Kirk Cousins and WR B.J. Cunningham.

Fifth-year senior Kirk Cousins, now in his third season as the Spartans starting quarterback, has a chance to win more football games than any other signal-caller in Michigan State history. Cousins has compiled a 19-10 record for a .655 winning percentage in 29 career starts. A school record 21 career wins is held by Jeff Smoker, (2000-03). His career winning percentage (eighth) and career wins (11th) rank among all active NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision quaterbacks.

Fifth-year senior B.J. Cunningham, a native of Westerville, Ohio, which is a suburb in North Columbus, leads the Big Ten in both receptions (7.3 per game) and receiving yards (107.0 per game).

WR B.J. Cunningham

In addition, Cunningham ranks among the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision Top 20 in both stat categories: tied for 14th in receptions and tied for 16th in receiving yards. Cunningham leads the team in receptions (29), receiving yards (428) and 20-yard receptions (6). Nineteen of his 29 catches (66 percent) have resulted in either a touchdown or a first down. Cunningham has caught at least one pass in 38 straight regular-season games, which ties him for the fourth-longest active streak in the NCAA FBS.


* Michigan State is a crowd favorite around college football. The Spartans have ranked among the NCAA’s top 25 in attendance each of the last 55 years, including a #19 ranking in 2010, averaging 73,556 fans per game. The Spartans rank number-17 in the NCAA in total attendance as 514,894 fans went through the turnstiles for seven home games.

* The Magic number is 24 points for Michigan State. Since 1990, the Spartans are 117-32-1 for a winning percentage of .783 when it scores at least 24 points and 18-86-1 (.176) when it scores fewer than 24 points. During that 22 year history, MSU has compiled an overall record of 135-118-2 (.533).

Lance Moore, a Westerville, Ohio native, has agreed to terms on a new five-year contract with the New Orleans Saints.

The 27-year-old Moore, an undrafted free agent in 2005 out of the University of Toledo, is another in a long line of players that the Cleveland Browns have made bad decisions on. The Browns signed him as a free agent and then cut him.

The Westerville South High School product, has been with the Saints since 2005 and has worked his way from the practice squad to become one of the team’s top receivers.

He was the leading receiver for the Saints in 2008 with 928 yards and 10 touchdowns, 79 catches. He had another strong season in 2010 with 66 catches for 763 yards and eight touchdowns.

Moore is the son of Rick Moore, owner of the Rick Moore Karate Academy in Whitehall.

2010 Ohio Athletic Conference Football Team Preview: Otterbein Cardinals picked to finish 3rd in race


*Special thanks goes out to Otterbein Sports Information director Ed Syguda for supplying information and photos and to’s Todd Oliver & Dan Poel for their help with photos.

I remember Otterbein athletic director & basketball coach Dick Reynolds telling me right after he hired Joe Loth, a 1991 graduate of the University, that he had a ‘good feeling’ about him turning the program around. “He’s an Otterbein guy”, Reynolds told me. “He’ll get it done!” I’m an Otterbein guy myself and I believed what Coach Reynolds said about Loth. I remember when he played for the Cardinals as All-OAC performer at defensive back. He still holds the school’s career record of 13 interceptions.

Get it done, that’s exactly what Loth has done!

It took him a couple of years, but nobody was expecting a miracle the first few years anyway.

In 2003, Otterbein was 3-7; 2004 they improved to 4-6. Then in 2005, they were one of the OAC’s surprise teams, going 7-3 overall, 6-3 in the conference. 2006, they dropped back to 4-6. Improved to 5-5 overall in 2007, 5-4 in the OAC. In 2008, the Cardinals vaulted all the way up to 9-2, 8-1 in the OAC and last season, 2009, were 8-2 and 7-2 in the conference. So you see, the “Otterbein guy” got the job done. After seven years, Joe Loth is 40-31 overall.

In the OAC preseason polls, Otterbein was picked third by the coaches and the media. The coaches gave them 63.5 points total and 1/2 first place vote. The media, including myself, gave them 274 points, but no first place votes.

Otterbein’s recent success has resulted in being recognized nationally. They have been ranked 24th by Lindy’s preseason Top 25 and 15th by USA Today’s College Football Preseason Top 25. So expections continue to run high for the Westerville, Ohio school.

Otterbein University has compiled a 17-4 record over the last two years and now heads into 2010 looking to record its third-straight winning season, a feat that has not been seen around the program since the Cardinals put together four winning seasons from 1979 to 1982, while I was attending as a student.

The Cardinals, return 51 letterman, including eight starters on offense and six on defense, from the 2009 squad which finished 8-2 overall, 7-2 with a share of second place in the OAC.

Coach Loth has four of five starters returning on the offensive line, including second team All-OAC senior guard Matt Hochberg. The Cardinals led the league in rushing last year, averaging 222 yards a game.

Senior running back Colton Coy, a two-time first team All-OAC selection, and junior quarterback Austin Schlosser, who took over the starting role in the third game last season due to an injury to 2008 Gagliardi Trophy Finalist Jack Rafferty, return.

Coy rushed for 1,013 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, becoming only the second running back to go over the 1,000-yard mark in Otterbein history. Schlosser threw for 1,363 yards and 12 touchdowns, and rushed for 304 yards and seven touchdowns. The versatile quarterback finished with a 164.15 pass efficiency rating, ranking eighth in NCAA Division III.

Senior defensive end Chaz Horsley, a second-team All-OAC selection last season, is expected to anchor the defensive unit, which should get an added boost with the return of senior linebacker Wil Longsdorf, who missed 2009 with an injury suffered in game one.

Horsley had 49 tackles and led the team with 9.5 tackles for a loss, including 4.5 sacks in 2009. In 2008, Longsdorf was the team’s third-leading tackler, with 59 stops, including 4.0 sacks.

Senior punter/place-kicker David Brewer returns as well as senior return specialist Anthony Korpieski. Brewer hit 5 of 8 field-goal attempts and 35 of 37 extra-point attempts last season. Korpieski, who earned honorable mention All-OAC honors, averaged 8.2 yards on punt returns and 24.9 yards on kick returns.

The Cardinals open the 2010 seaon September 3 at Husson College in Bangor, Maine.

Coach Joe Loth qoutes from the 2010 Ohio Athletic Conference Football Preview:

Faced adversity in 2009, but was 8-2″

“This will be the best offensive line in his tenure”

“Question marks at wide receiver”

“Front 6 depth is good”

“Solid kick game with David Brewer”
