Colorado Buffaloes wide receiver Toney Clemons caught 4 passes for 31 yards in Saturday’s 37-17 loss to Ohio State on Saturday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio.

Clemons knows the Buckeyes quite well. He grew up in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, which is northeast of Pittsburgh and was invited to their Junior Day as a 2007 football recruit.

Clemons said that “Ohio State was a team I grew up wanting to play against when I was little. I was fortunate to get a chance to do it-twice.”

And Clemons took two losses. He played two seasons at Michigan (2007, 2008) before transferring to Colorado in 2009. In his freshman year in Ann Arbor, Ohio State visited and won 14-3. In 2008, Michigan played in Ohio Stadium and left with a 42-7 whipping. Clemons, played in 19 games with three starts while at Michigan, did not register a stat in either game against the Buckeyes.

With Saturday’s loss in Columbus, Clemons has faced Ohio State three times and is 0-for-3.

Veteran NHL referee Bill McCreary officiated his final regular season game at Washington last Saturday as the Capitals were hosting the Buffalo Sabres.

The site was appropriate as McCreary began his four-decades-spanning NHL career by working Capitals home games. His NHL debut as a referee was on November 3, 1984, when the Caps hosted the New Jersey Devils at the Capital Centre in Landover, Maryland. His final games as a referee reads, 1,737.

Regarded as one of the best ever to officiate the game, McCreary holds the League record for most playoff games (297) and most Stanley Cup Final games (44) refereed. He finished his career second on the NHL’s all-time games-refereed list. The native of Guelph, Ontario, is one of only four referees to reach the 1,500 games mark, an accomplishment McCreary registered on February 16, 2008. The quality of his refereeing was recognized by selection to work the post-season 23 times.

McCreary’s long list of accomplishments includes refereeing 15 Stanley Cup Final series (13 consecutive from 1994-2007), the 1991 and 1994 Canada Cups, the 1994 NHL All-Star Game (New York), and the Winter Olympics in 1998 (Nagano), 2002 (Salt Lake City) and 2010 (Vancouver), drawing the gold medal assignment each time.

McCreary will be recognized by his colleagues at a special ceremony held during Officials Training Camp prior to the 2011-12 NHL season.
