If you're one of those who were confused, and maybe even a little upset, that Ohio State dropped four spots in the polls after their win last week, you only need to look to their opening series this week to understand why. UAB had the ball first, and on their very first set of downs, Ohio State had them at 3rd & 1. The defense that was called was the right one, as it allowed Ohio State's Simon to get in on UAB's quarterback quickly. But Blazer quarterback Jonathan Perry, in a panic, tucked the ball in and took off, causing Simon to blow right past him. Perry ran for a big gain.

His coach knows something about taking quality athletes that...

Miller's TD pushes No. 16 Buckeyes past UAB

Ohio State Football: Braxton Miller emerges as a Heisman favorite in another ugly Buckeyes win

Ask most USC fans, and they’ll tell you that the No. 1 reason Matt Barkley didn’t get an invite to New York last season for the Heisman Trophy ceremony was simply his team was on probation. After all, how could the upstanding voters of such a prestigious award as the Heisman, reward a player whose school had done so much wrong in the eyes of the NCAA? They couldn’t, at least...

In his first season as the coach at UAB, he's trying to upgrade a program that has struggled in the transition in the public's perspective from sneaky-good basketball power to big-time football contender.

Inconsistency plagues Buckeye offense

The Blazers ranked near the bottom of teams in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision in several team defensive categories.
