Ohio State spring football reactions: Offense

Evaluating the offense the same way as the defense is hardly fair considering all of the injuries that beset the Ohio State scoring unit, but there were some lessons to take away from the spring nonetheless.

Craving Cupcakes: On Ohio State’s Scheduling

I’m not an expert on every sport played on this planet of ours, but I can’t think of a single one where a final score of 76-0 is at all commonplace. Maybe that’s a normal cricket score? Can anyone tell me what a normal score in cricket is? Anyway, that 76-0 is the count by which the Buckeyes bulldozed the Florida A&M Rattlers last Saturday. Some may point to that as an...
