It was a hard haul to get up for the game but when the Buckeyes score on their very first run, I got a move on. I managed to get to the computer and set up and see the boys in time for the second drive. Braxton Miller to Devin Smith combination for the first touchdown of the season. Kenny Guiton gets the first successful 2 point conversion at the shoe for the year. The first couple of drives the boys looked great. Strong, and each play was finished off, all the little details were made. Noah Spence gets the tick for the first quarterback sack of the season in the shoe. Philly Brown had a hit that laid out a Bulls player, it was a legal hit. Philly did go check on the bloke and make sure all was OK. The Offence created a very nice hole for Jordan Hall to bolt 47 yards for a touchdown. Aussie Cameron Johnston had his first punt of the season for an almost 6 second hang time. I would love to see him try a field goal over 40 yards. As the day went on the heat started to take its toll on many players. Braxton went out with massive cramps and Kenny Guiton came in the game until Braxton felt well enough. Yes I am from OSU but I think we have the best one two combination at quarterback. They are both good from the pocket and it doesn’t matter who starts or who takes the place of the other because they are both so comfortable and the flow is seamless. There were some major penalties, which I am not sure are just silly mistakes, a young crew learning or what just back luck on that particular play. The one call that we all scratched our head about was if you lose your helmet you have to immediately go off the field. We got penalized for it and we all don’t get why. The second half got sloppy in places, mistakes were made and they cost us,over 10 yards per flag. I do wonder if the weather played a part with not getting re-hydrated enough when coming off the field. It was over 100 degrees on the fields, Medicals should have been more on the heat issues. It was an ugly win but it was a good test to see where were stood. It is early in the season but we still have some things to iron out, this group of young men will be together for a while, and anything is possible. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain. On Saturday the 7th of September Ohio State welcomes the San Diego Aztecs to The Shoe for the first time. See you on Saturday Cricket
