  Sugar Bowl Ohio State v Clemson CFB Playoff
Posted by: Steve - 01-01-2021, 05:49 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Sugar-Bowl-Ohio_11D2A-SugarBowl2021_2.jpg"><img width="361" height="484" title="SugarBowl2021" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="SugarBowl2021" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Sugar-Bowl-Ohio_11D2A-SugarBowl2021_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>January 1st at 8pm Friday night on ESPN is the rematch of Ohio State vs Clemson in the <a href="https://collegefootballplayoff.com/" target="_blank">College Football Playoff</a>. This is the 2nd game of the semi-final round that night (The Rose Bowl is Alabama vs Notre Dame at 4pm). The Clemson Tigers are favored by 7 points with <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dabo_Swinney" target="_blank">head coach Dabo Swinney</a> notably voting for Ohio State to be ranked 11th in the country instead of their final placement of third.</p><h2>Ohio State Still Getting Started</h2><p><a href="http://brutusreport.com/" target="_blank">The Ohio State Buckeyes</a> have only played 6 games this season compared to the eleven games that Clemson has played. No fault of their own, but they lack the experience of other teams from other conferences that didn’t sit out two months. <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/oklahoma-graduate-transfer-running-back-trey-sermon/" target="_blank">Running back Trey Sermon</a> just got going in the <a href="https://bigten.org/sports/2020/11/24/FCG_2020.aspx" target="_blank">Big Ten championship game</a> when in a normal season he would have 5 more productive games under his belt.</p><p>Hopefully Ohio State has their best game still in them and puts it out there on Friday in the CFB Playoff. Ohio State can have big run yards again this week, like they did against Northwestern, but they will need to put the ball in the end-zone and not settle for field goals to beat Clemson.</p><h2>Clemson is Dangerous</h2><p>Clemson can probably get a lot of yards receiving against the unexperienced secondary of Ohio state, who will most likely play soft coverage to keep the big time playmakers (<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amari_Rodgers" target="_blank">Amari Rodgers</a>, <a href="https://clemsontigers.com/sports/football/roster/e-j-williams/" target="_blank">EJ Williams</a> and <a href="https://www.espn.com/college-football/player/_/id/4035465/cornell-powell" target="_blank">Cornell Powell</a>) in front of them. But within the 20 yard red-zone, the receiver advantage is diminished.</p><div class="feedflare">

  Ohio State Goes Into Big Ten Championship Without 21 Players
Posted by: Steve - 12-20-2020, 05:43 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

Ohio State went 5-0 in a shortened season while missing two games due to Covid 19 breakouts, one against Maryland and an OSU cancellation against Illinois. A late rule change made the team eligible for the Championship Game today but the team continues to have some issues, most notably is leading receiver Chris Olave.</p><p><strong>NCAA Championship Playoff Birth</strong></p><p>If the Buckeyes can win against number 14 Northwestern (6-1), and they are favored by 20.5 points, this will be their fourth straight Big Ten title. The Ohio State football team also played Michigan State without 23 players, still able to handle them without a problem. A win puts them into the mix for the 6 team NCAA playoff including the Rose Bowl.</p><p><strong>Unavailable Players</strong></p><p>Players that are unavailable include linebacker Baron Browning, running back Steele Chambers, punter Drue Chrisman, defensive end Tyler Friday, quarterback Gunnar Hoak, wide receiver Chris Olave, wide receiver Jaxson Smith-Njigba, and many others.</p><p><strong>New Targets for Just Fields</strong></p><p>Olave is having a great season with 5 touchdowns and 528 yards on 36 receptions. Garrett Wilson and Jameson Williams will be the main targets today for quarter back Justin Fields with Olave out. Also look for receiver Demario McCall, tight end Jeremey Ruckert, and tight end Luke Farrell to be targets today.</p> <iframe width="898" height="384" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FhsnPonH700" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>2020 Ohio State Football: Big Ten Championship Trailer</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Ohio State Football Back in Action against Michigan State Saturday at Noon
Posted by: Steve - 12-05-2020, 05:37 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Football-Back-in-Action-again_E401-OhioStatevMichiganState_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="OhioStatevMichiganState" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="OhioStatevMichiganState" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Football-Back-in-Action-again_E401-OhioStatevMichiganState_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>The 4-0 <a href="http://brutusreport.com/" target="_blank">Ohio State Buckeyes</a> are set to return to action this weekend against the Spartans of Michigan State (2-3). Kickoff time is noon with limited attendance in East Lansing Michigan. The game can be watched on ABC. Ohio State had to cancel their game last weekend against Illinois while their <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2960/ryan-days-2019-ohio-state-football-staff" target="_blank">head coach Ryan Day</a> will also miss this game after testing positive for Covid-19.</p><h2>2020 College Football Playoffs</h2><p>Ohio State is still hopeful of making the College Football Playoffs this season but need a little help from Michigan in playing them next week after they also are having Covid-19 tests spoil some of their season. If Ohio State can play their final two regular season games against Michigan State and Michigan, win them both, they will be eligible for the Big Ten Championship game the following week. But if one game is cancelled, the Buckeyes will not have met the 6 game requirement to play.</p><h2>Michigan State Football</h2><p>Michigan State had their best game so far last weekend beating Northwestern 29-20.</p><p>The Spartans have an outstanding linebacker coming after Justin Fields in <a href="https://msuspartans.com/sports/football/roster/antjuan-simmons/10498" target="_blank">Antjuan Simmons</a> (Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week) who is 2nd in the conference with 10.6 tackles a game. The team is prone to get sacks and turn-overs, similar to Indiana. They got 4 sacks and 4 interceptions against the Wildcats last week. Mel Tucker returns to the Big Ten after coaching Colorado one year to lead Michigan State. </p><p>Michigan State’s main problem is at quarterback where <a href="https://msuspartans.com/sports/football/roster/rocky-lombardi/10476" target="_blank">Rocky Lombardi</a> throws as many interceptions as touchdowns. He also is not able to complete many passes, just 11 for 27 last week. He does make up for the poor passing with his ability to run the ball, putting up 65 yards in the most recent win.</p><h2>Why Ohio State Wins</h2><p>Ohio State is a 24 point favorite in this game. Last time out, against Indiana, <a href="https://twitter.com/justnfields" target="_blank">quarterback Justin Fields</a> put up great numbers when discounting the 3 interceptions, with 378 yards and three touchdowns. Fields is leading the nation in passing percentage at 79.6%. <a href="https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/roster/master-teague/" target="_blank">Running Back Master Teague</a> had one of his best games with 169 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Their receiving core is still looking very strong with <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/ArticleId/2917/Ohio-State-Gets-Garrett-Wilson" target="_blank">sophomore Garrett Wilson</a> having one of his best games at OSU two weeks ago. <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/articleid/2896" target="_blank">Chris Olave</a> also had 100+ yards receiving against the Hoosiers.</p><div class="feedflare">

  Ohio State Has 2nd Game Cancelled of the Season Today

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Cancels-2nd-Game-of-the-Seaso_A4F4-OhioStatevIllinois_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="OhioStatevIllinois" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="OhioStatevIllinois" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Cancels-2nd-Game-of-the-Seaso_A4F4-OhioStatevIllinois_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>Ohio State has found it necessary to cancel their game today against the Fighting Illini as a number of players and staff tested positive for Covid-19 including <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2960/ryan-days-2019-ohio-state-football-staff" target="_blank">head coach Ryan Day</a>. A number of players tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday but the team was moving forward with Thanksgiving day practices, hoping to still play. When Ryan Day also tested positive during a new round of PCR tests on Friday and <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/1539/defensive-coaching-changes-at-the-ohio-state-university" target="_blank">Larry Johnson</a> was named interim head coach, fans become really nervous. And later that day the Buckeyes cancelled the game.</p><h2>Big Ten Championship In Question</h2><p>This is the second game of the season the team (now 4-0) has not played as Maryland cancelled an earlier game. In a traditional season, this would have been Michigan game weekend and the final game of the season. After the late start, the team is playing a shortened season with two games remaining, Michigan State and Michigan.

  No 3 Ohio State v No 9 Indiana 2020
Posted by: Steve - 11-20-2020, 05:45 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-No-2-Ohio-State-v-Indiana-2020_C367-OhioStateIndiana_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="OhioStateIndiana" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="OhioStateIndiana" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-No-2-Ohio-State-v-Indiana-2020_C367-OhioStateIndiana_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>Who thought at the start of the Big Ten season that Indiana at Ohio State would be one of the biggest games of the season, probably nobody. But here we are with Ohio State coming into their fourth game against an Indiana team that is 4-0 and ranked nationally. The game is scheduled for Noon on Saturday November 21st with limited attendance but fans can watch on the Fox network. </p><h2>Ohio State Offense</h2><p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2955/justin-fields-is-moving-from-georgia-to-ohio-state" target="_blank">Justin Fields</a> has had a great start as many thought he would, going 72 for 83 (86.7%) passes leading to 908 yards with no interceptions and 11 touchdowns. He has also ran for 2 touchdowns. Helping fields is a great group of receivers including <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/articleid/2896" target="_blank">Chris Olave</a> and <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/ArticleId/2917/Ohio-State-Gets-Garrett-Wilson" target="_blank">Garrett Wilson</a>. They have 632 yards and 6 touchdowns combined. At <a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2842/Tight-End-Jeremy-Ruckert-Commits-to-Ohio-State" target="_blank">tight-end Jeremy Ruckert</a> has 3 touchdowns already on 9 catches for 60 yards. </p><p><a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2836/Master-Teague-III-Has-Chosen-OSU" target="_blank">Master Teague III</a> has also been solid this season rushing for 211 yards and 4 touchdowns. When the Buckeyes need to punch it in, Teague and the line have been able to do so. The Buckeye’s do not have a back as talented as JK Dobbins this year but the combo of Teague and <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/oklahoma-graduate-transfer-running-back-trey-sermon/" target="_blank">Trey Sermon</a> have been able to get what the team needs.</p><h2>Ohio State Defense</h2><p>Defensively, Ohio State needs to improve in coverage and in the pass rush. Without Chase Young they have looked to <a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/1640/Jonathon-Cooper-of-Lincoln-Gahanna-High-School" target="_blank">Jonathan Cooper</a> and <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2952/ohio-state-snatches-zach-harrison-just-in-time-for-the-holidays" target="_blank">Zach Harrison</a> on the end, both who have been slowing starting to show that they can dominate a game. Quarterback <a href="https://iuhoosiers.com/sports/football/roster/michael-penix-jr-/14628" target="_blank">Michael Penix Jr</a> will have to have a great game for Indiana to keep it close. Ohio State is favored by 20.5 points, and that could be about right with Indiana scoring three times.</p><div class="feedflare">

With limited attendance, you can watch the Buckeyes on the <a href="https://btn.com/" target="_blank">Big Ten Network</a>. Rutgers was able to beat Michigan State and is considered much improved over prior seasons. <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Schiano" target="_blank">Greg Schiano</a> has brought discipline to the program and the ability to compete with more talented teams. He even was able to pull in some talent from the area in addition to grabbing a couple transfers to enhance the group.</p><h2>Ohio State Offense 2020</h2><p>Ohio State should get a chance to play some young players in the 2nd half including freshman quarterbacks <a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/3028/Ohio-States-Class-of-2020-Early-Signing-Period" target="_blank">CJ Stroud</a> and <a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2923/How-Jack-Miller-III-Emerges-As-The-2020-Ohio-Recruiting-Class-Secret-Weapon" target="_blank">Jack Miller III</a>. This will not affect Justin Field’s <a href="https://www.heisman.com/" target="_blank">Heisman</a> stats as he will rack up enough passes, touchdowns and yards in the first half that he will still be first place in the race for 2020.</p><p>The running game for Ohio State should have a good game with <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/oklahoma-graduate-transfer-running-back-trey-sermon/" target="_blank">transfer Trey Sermon</a> scoring for the first time this season. <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2911/four-star-athlete-steele-chambers-joins-the-ohio-state" target="_blank">Steele Chambers</a> should also get a good number of carries and do well with those that he is given, similar to week 1 against Nebraska. If they get too run heavy, Rutgers has the ability to stuff some runs so OSU will need to keep the attack varied.</p><div class="feedflare">

You can watch the game on ABC at 7:30pm Saturday night.</p><h2>Last Week Indiana v Penn State</h2><p><a href="https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/bigten/2020/10/24/indiana-upsets-penn-state-big-ten-opener-unlikely-comeback/6027241002/" target="_blank">Indiana upset Penn State</a> last weekend in overtime, although many feel Penn State is better than they performed in their first game of the season. <a href="https://brutusreport.com" target="_blank">Ohio State</a> is favored by 12 points after last weeks results. Quarterback <a href="https://twitter.com/seancliff14" target="_blank">Sean Clifford</a> led the team in rushing which is not ideal and the team was plague with errors in every aspect of the game.</p><h2>Ohio State Last Week</h2><p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2955/justin-fields-is-moving-from-georgia-to-ohio-state" target="_blank">Justin Fields</a> was near perfect in Ohio State’s opening game against Nebraska in the Shoe (20 or 21 for 276 yards). And he ran for 55 yards on the ground, often when the team needed him the most. Ohio State struggled on the ground in week 1, hopefully they find a way to get their backs open in some gaps to complement their passing game. The four backs (<a href="https://fryingpansports.com/oklahoma-graduate-transfer-running-back-trey-sermon/" target="_blank">Trey Sermon</a>, <a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2836/Master-Teague-III-Has-Chosen-OSU" target="_blank">Master Teague</a>, <a href="https://www.efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/ArticleId/3064/Ohio-State-Football-Depth-Chart-For-The-Coming-NCAA-Football-Season-1" target="_blank">Steele Chambers</a> and <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/update-on-ohio-state-four-star-running-back-evan-pryor/" target="_blank">Xavier Johnson</a>) combined with Fields did add up to some decent yards, but there was not a dominate back.</p><p>Receiving was led by Garrett Wilson (129 yards and a touchdown) and Chris Olave (104 yards). With Julian Fleming, Jameson Williams, Jeremy Ruckert, Jaxson Smith-Njigba, and Luke Farrell also getting catches. Olave might miss this coming game with an injury.</p><h2>Justin Fields</h2><p>Fields needs to show his skills against good competition in the short season if he wants to be considered for the Heisman trophy. This nationally televised game is the perfect opportunity.</p><p>Going against Fields is Shaka Toney on the defensive line of Penn State. The Nittany Lions hope Toney can disrupt the Buckeye quarterback enough to keep them in the game.</p><div class="feedflare">
