Ohio State Michigan 2015

Ohio State Michigan 2015

Some fans are worried that the Buckeyes #8 (10-1) have run out of gas after a lackluster showing at home against the Spartans last weekend. Ohio State needs to get the ball down the field to players like Braxton Miller to open up the running game for Ezekiel Elliot.

Michigan #12 (9-2) is feeling good about themselves heading into “The Game” with most parts of their game ticking. Their offense isn’t as good as their defense but if they can avoid turnovers they have a shot at beating Urban Meyer.

Ohio State has incredible talent, doesn’t have the pressure to be the best team in country that they had before, and are now more motivated than ever to beat their long time rivals. All of Buckeye Nation is hoping adjustments have been made this week to put up some serous points on a really good defense.

Michigan State was ranked the 26th team in total defense and Ohio State could only put up 132 yards of offense and five first downs. Michigan has the 4th best defense in the country, it will be a big test for the OSU offense in the The Big House.

On The OSU Football Schedule–The Michigan State Spartans

MSU Spartan

OSU Football Schedule

The Buckeyes (10-0) have a record 30 regular season wins and 23 wins in a row. And this one is at home in front of an enthusiastic Buckeye Nation on Senior Day. They haven’t played anyone that difficult, although everyone gives them their all, so this is the one game they have really been looking forward to.

The OSU Buckeyes need to score 30 points this weekend to put the Spartans away. Starting JT Barrett will be a big help in getting going early, as he will tuck and run for big gains when needed. Michigan State would love to force JT to pass the ball more than he wants to, as they feel that is a weakness for the Buckeyes.

Jalin Marshall returning punts, 12.7 yards a punt could break one. Receiving this weekend could also be huge for Marshall. And Braxton Miller could have a big role if the Buckeyes can get the ball into his hands. Starting center Jacoby Boren needs to have a big game opening up Elliot to make big plays on the ground and dominate the way Ohio State did last season against MSU.

Joey Bosa can help make MSU one dimensional by stopping any run attack the Spartans try to establish.

Urban Meyer Talks Penn State and Rutgers


Urban Meyer talked this week with the media about players coming off of the game against Penn State going into Rutgers Saturday night. He reported that freshman running back Mike Weber is almost completely back from injury. He also stated that freshman coming in to help after injuries and penalties to others include KJ Hill at wide receiver and Jerome Baker at linebacker. Can Williams has to sit after a targeting penalty last week.

Injuries continue to plague the team with Parris Campbell out for a couple more weeks, Dontre Wilson is out, and Johnnie Dixon has tendonitis.

The team has had a slow start in a couple of recent games but seems to have found the answer to their offensive trouble with the game against Maryland and continued against Penn State. The switch to using Cardale Jones and JT Barrett has helped move the ball in the red zone or close to the end zone. They hope to get some third down conversions early this weekend to score on the first drive. We might see Barrett on third downs if Jones proves ineffective early in the game.

Ohio State Playing Indiana On The Road


Indiana has a 4-0 record this year to match the Buckeyes as Big Ten play begins and fans have already sold out the stadium for Saturday’s game.

The Hoosiers enter the game as 22 point underdogs and their might be just as many Buckeye fans in the seats as there are Hoosier fans.

Ohio State And Western Michigan Saturday


Western Michigan has not lived up to the hype this season so far with many returning starters. Seven wins last year was just the start to a great 2015 run, but that hasn’t happened for those players. At 1-2, a bad loss against Michigan State and Georgia Southern, and now on the road against Ohio State, that is a rough start for any football program. Thank goodness Murray State was on the schedule.

The Broncos play the Buckeyes at 3:30 this Saturday in the teams first trip ever to the Horseshoe. WMU has the second toughest pre-season schedule in the country based on the record of Michigan State and Ohio State last year. Not only that, but those two teams that the Broncos have scheduled early this year are now ranked 1st and 2nd in the country.

Ohio States First Opponent, Virginia Tech


This Labor Day Buckeye fans are in for a special treat when Ohio State plays their first game of the season against Virginia Tech at 8pm in Lane Stadium. The broadcast will be on ESPN. Frank Beamer led the Hokies last season to a 7-6 record with a signature win against the Buckeyes. They came up lame for 3-5 in the conference, finishing fifth in the ACC Coastal Division.

The VT defense looks to be strong again this season with Bud Foster returning as coordinator. They have a pair of defensive ends in Ken Ekanem and Dadi Nicolas that should provide some trouble for OSU quarterbacks. And their secondary isn’t bad either, led by Kendall Fuller. The defense led their conference in sacks last year with 48 and will be let loose once again. Tackle Luther Maddy is a force in the middle and cornerback Brandon Facyson is touch on the edge.

When Ohio State finished fall camp this past week, Urban Meyer stated that his goal is to get Braxton Miller ready to start at H Back when the Buckeyes open the season. He’s not quite there yet but he is getting close. That position crowed with Dontre Wilson, Curtis Samual and Jalin Marshall already. But Miller is dynamic and athletic enough to find time.

The recruitment of Elliott is covered with his selection of Ohio State. The 2014 season is reported on including his improvement on the field and his explosion in the final games. His career yards against Wisconsin, Alabama and Oregon led the team to the national championship. The whole show is available online:

Terrelle Pryor Makes Triumphant Return To Ohio State


Recently, Ohio State decided to remove the ban placed on Terrelle Pryor. The talented football player will resumed his sports career on Friday at Ohio Stadium.

However, when it comes to participation within the intrasquad scrimmage, Terrelle Pryor will have to sit by the sidelines. While he will attend the event, he cannot play because of an injured hamstring.

Four years have passed since Terrelle Pryor has visited The Horseshoe. Before this new transition to wide receiver, Pryor played for the Buckeyes.

After he left The Horseshoe, Pryor suffered a ban from Ohio State. Fortunately, the ban has been lifted due to his membership with the Browns.

Most of the time Ohio State has no problem welcoming athletes back on campus. When such situations occur, NFL players are given access to weight rooms and lockers.

Braxton Miller To Play At Receiver Position At Ohio State


In an interview with Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated, Braxton Miller announced his plans to switch from playing quarterback to playing in the receiver position for Ohio State. Miller was originally to have competed for the starting QB slot with J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones.

Miller first discussed the possibility of the switch with the team's strength coach in April. He approached coach Urban Meyer with the idea one month later. Within a couple weeks, he was meeting J.T. Barrett on the practice field after sunset to practice catching balls. Miller missed the entire last season due to a shoulder injury and was secretly looking for a fallback plan.

Miller will play H-back, which is a hybrid receiver position, next season. He plans to spend 20% of the time during training camp as a quarterback and the other 80% as a receiver, in case he decides to try making a comeback as a quarterback. Miller estimates he would need two more months to be fully ready to quarterback, so right now he is focused on the receiver position.
