Ohio State Buckeyes
Illinois Fighting Illini
Michigan State Spartans
At times, it felt like one of the ugliest games televised this season. But it ended in their first Big Ten win of the year, so the Buckeyes will take it.
Ohio State had a grand total of one pass completion, running the ball 50 times against four attempts for quarterback Braxton Miller. How that imbalance equated to a win can be calculated by examining a tremendous defensive performance.
Though they lost the shutout late, the Ohio State D bounced back from last week’s embarrassing collapse in Lincoln to play an outstanding 60 minutes of football. Backs Bradley Roby and Travis Howard intercepted Illini QB Nathan Scheelhaase in two plays that helped turn a tenuous game in OSU’s favor. Tyler Moeller forced a fourth-quarter fumble that helped set up OSU’s lone success through the air. And when they weren’t getting takeaways, the Bucks were stifling the Illini offense both through the air and on the ground.
Dan Herron's return from suspension went as scripted for the Buckeyes (D...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Perhaps we have seen the best of Braxton Millier and The Ohio State Buckeyes during the first half of last weeks Buckeyes loss. The real question is can Braxton Miller help the Buckeyes to win today when they play Illinois today. Sadly I think not. Illinois is coming into today’s game at 6-0 on the season while the Buckeyes sit at 3-3. Miller is going to have one rough day today...
For a change, Ohio State's quarterback controversy isn't centered on who will start.
Braxton Miller is healthy enough to take the first snap when the Buckeyes travel to play at No. 16 Illinois on Saturday.
Interim coach Luke Fickell said Miller has been working out with the team and doing everything he needed to do to show he's fully recovered from a sprained right...
Woody Hayes would be proud. Sort of.
The Ohio State Buckeyes partied like it was 1969 as they pounded Illinois into submission with a physical defense and a solid running game, winning 17-7. The Buckeyes spent most of the day in the power-I, and Dan Herron returned to the lineup to lead the running attack. Meanwhile, Braxton Miller completed only one pass in the game – a touchdown...
Believe it or not, there are good things coming out of this season for Ohio State. The problem is, most of the good is looking towards the future; and most of it concerns Braxton Miller. Though he struggled early, the highly touted freshman is beginning to come into his own. His arm is obviously not developed yet, but the athleticism is there in full...
It was ugly, and anything but exciting. Still, Ohio State gave the Illini their first loss of the 2011 season. Buckyes QB Braxton Miller didn’t even complete a pass until 13:06 left in the fourth quarter, when he found TE Jake Stoneburner in the middle of the south end zone to put OSU up 16-0.
Prior to that play, Miller was just 0-3 passing on the day. The Buckeyes were BORING...

Dan Herron returned to the Ohio State Buckeyes today in prime fashion. Herron’s returned help the Buckeyes defeat undefeated Illinois which has to be the upset of the day. Herron hasn’t played since January in the Sugar bowl due to NCAA suspensions and I’ll be Illinois is wishing Herron would have sat out for one more game. Herron ran for 114 yards and one touchdown today...
Works for me.
Complain about the Ohio State offensive coaching staff all you want but somebody must have done their homework this week. Either through intensive film study or just dumb luck, they realized that the Illni were all but powerless against the likes of Boom Herron and Jordan Hall. Herron carried the ball 23 times for a total 114 yards while Hall and...
The Buckeyes travel to Champaign today at 3:30, and take on the undefeated Illinois Fighting Illini. Braxton Miller has been reported that he will start, but the challenge still remains.
Join us at 3:15 PM EST and talk Buckeyes and give us your thoughts during the game! Go Bucks!
Ohio State vs. #14 Illinois
Illinois was able to develop redshirt sophomore quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, while Ohio State has been forced to throw true freshman Braxton Miller into the job.
The defense will have their hands full
For once in a long time, the sides are flipped. The Illinois Fighting Illini (6-0, 2-0) are undefeated and host the Ohio State Buckeyes (3-3, 0-2), who are in a down year without a doubt, in this week's Big Ten match-up. The Illini enter perfect, behind the arm of sensational sophomore quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase, who has thrown 80/120...
The return of Boom was huge
The Ohio State Buckeyes (4-3, 1-2) upset the Illinois Fighting Illini (6-1, 2-1) 17-7 on Saturday after an impressive showing of defense and pounding the Illini front line for big runs. The return of Dan "Boom" Herron was key in this game as he rushed for 114 yards on 23 carries. The Buckeyes also relied heavily on the defense, which turned...
Daniel Herron, who hadn't played since the Sugar Bowl in January because of NCAA suspensions, ran for 114 yards and a touchdown in his return Saturday to lead Ohio State past No. 16 Illinois, 17-7.
With true freshman Braxton Miller at quarterback, the struggling offense of Ohio State (4-3, 2-1 Big Ten) counted on Herron against Illinois (6-1, 2-1). The Buckeyes didn't complete...
So far it has been a dismal football season for The Ohio State University football team. Will the addition of Mike Adams really make a difference? Will Braxton Miller continue to improve? Can Boom Herron show up and will he be ready to play and be an influence on Offense? Can the Defense play well when they are needed most?Actually my Quarterback of choice from the get Go was...
