Important Player Stats

Terrelle Pryor: 8-13, 138 yards, 2 TDs, INT

Daniel Herron: 21 rushes, 190 yards, TD

I couldn't tell whether Ohio State just didn't care in the first half or if they were really that bad, but in the second half they made Penn State look terrible.

Terrelle Pryor wasn't all that impressive yesterday. Virtually all his passing yards came on just two throws. At least he is finally running the ball again.

Matthew McGloin proved that he is still someone who walked on in the Second Half. Playing against Ohio State's defense when they are actually trying made him look bad.

Herron went straight beast-mode.

Yea, I feel like I should be able to offer more insight, but really there wasn't a whole lot to yesterday's game.

Pasta's Player of the Year Rankings

4. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
3. Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State
2. LaMichael James, RB, Oregon
1. Cam Newton, QB, Auburn

Note: Given recent circumstance I feel I should address eligibility requirements for this 'award.' To be considered my Player of the Year one must be eligible to play in the NCAA. If a player is to be given that award and is found to have been ineligible post-fact, the award will be vacated and no one else can be credited with that award.

For the first time in the Blog's brief history, Ohio State Men's Basketball.

The Buckeyes opened this season on Friday night against North Carolina A & T. A new season with four starters returning and a whole lot of Freshman.

Jared Sullinger, Deshaun Thomas and Aaron Craft each played well in their first collegiate playing time. They probably outplayed the returning starters. Of course, we'll have to wait for better opposition to find much out about this team.

The starting line-up lacks a true point guard again this year and that is a major area of concern. I hope Craft will be able to step up and take that role.

Thanks for reading and please comment.
