  Mark Fletcher Ohio State 2023 Running Back
Posted by: Steve - 04-20-2022, 02:53 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Mark-Fletcher-Ohio-State-2023-Running-Ba_136EA-MarkFletcher_2.jpg"><img width="351" height="484" title="MarkFletcher" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="MarkFletcher" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Mark-Fletcher-Ohio-State-2023-Running-Ba_136EA-MarkFletcher_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p> <p>Mark Fletcher from American Heritage in Fort Lauderdale Florida <a href="https://twitter.com/fletcherjr_mark/status/1514028798118965252" target="_blank">committed to Ohio State</a> for the 2023 season earlier this month. Considered a big back, he has provided his school with three productive high school football seasons, gaining over 2500 yards and 29 touchdowns.</p> <p>At 6'1" 225 lbs. Fletcher, a four start running back, picked OSU over Penn State, Michigan, and Miami of Florida. He is rated the 7th best running back in the country. He made visits to Ohio State on April 1st, Miami on March 24th, Michigan on March 21st and was at USC on March 11th.</p> <p>Crystal Ball projections made shortly prior to the commitment had Fletcher going to the Buckeyes.</p> <h2>Ohio State 2023 Class</h2><p>Running Back's <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2661/tony-alford-sees-opportunity-at-ohio-state" target="_blank">coach Tony Alford</a> recruited Fletcher and is looking to add another back to the 2023 class. At the time of Fletcher's commitment, Ohio State had 6 commits including mostly defensive players. No other running backs are currently looking to join the Buckeye's class. Ahead of Fletcher on the depth chart are Marcus Crowley, Miyan Williams, Treveyon Henderson, Evan Pryor and Dallen Hayden. </p> <p>Fletcher plays 7-on-7 with current commit Cedrick Hawkins at South Florida Express. He can catch the ball and has decent speed in space as seen in film.</p> <p>American Heritage is a school Ohio State has been trying to create a relationship with for some time. So getting Fletcher is an important step for the Buckeyes in Florida.</p> <iframe width="957" height="538" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/xW-B0frVzdg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>What are the Buckeyes getting with Mark Fletcher?</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Urban Meyer Takes Role With NIL Company
Posted by: Steve - 03-23-2022, 10:17 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-4c319cc43cc5_CDCB-UrbanMeyer_2.jpg"><img width="244" height="244" title="UrbanMeyer" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="UrbanMeyer" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-4c319cc43cc5_CDCB-UrbanMeyer_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>The Urban Meyer news of late is a huge college football story, along with the new Name, Image, and Likeness rules. Mr. Meyer accepting a position on the board of directors for the THE Foundation is in sync with the new rule. This rule states that college sports players can now earn money through <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/3114/ohio-state-buckeyes-v-akron-zips-week" target="_blank">name, image, and likeness</a> deals with companies like Nike.</p> <h2>THE Foundation</h2><p>What the <a href="https://twitter.com/TheFoundation1_" target="_blank">THE Foundation</a> does is help improve the quality of life for the sports players on the college level at Ohio State University. So not only are the players allowed to make money where only the NCAA used to, there may be other perks to being a player at O.S.U. through The Foundation.</p> <p>With all the bad news in the world today, what is happening in Ohio is welcome news indeed. For years now, people have been formulating ways to help college players receive monies for all the money they bring to the school and the NCAA. It was an off-balance partnership, with the bread winners left eating crumbs.</p> <h2>Urban Meyer News</h2><p>One cannot help but get the impression that Urban Meyer had been working hard behind the scenes to get this done for both the player's sake and his. Maybe he "profited" from his behind-the-scenes work by way of getting fast racked onto the board, which is fine if true. It's fine, considering the players got the best deal out of it.</p> <p>The prospect of getting endorsement deals when you're good enough should help spark greater competition. Competition between players for a good payday only makes the players better, the teams better, and the league itself better because of the rising talents.</p> <p>It's still unclear exactly how the THE Foundation will improve their quality of life. Hopefully health insurance is on the top of the list. If the NCAA does this already, more supplemental insurance is never a bad thing. Or possibly pushing the right people to put more relevant and needed money management courses into the curriculum. Making a lot of money is one thing, but learning how to manage it will greatly improve the player's quality of life.</p> <p>So all in all, the business end of this sport, in this college and others, is gaining positive press for their endeavors. The Urban Meyer news is good in and of itself, but when you couple that with the new name/image/likeness rule, you have a sport that is turning heads and, potentially, a larger fan base.</p> <p>We can only hope that Mr. Meyer serves a long and distinguished tenure at the Foundation. That step up for him was a logical and productive one. We also hope the new rules will benefit the players, as the context of the rule is intended.</p> <iframe width="951" height="535" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/leWjdWYxNDI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>NAME IMAGE AND LIKENESS NCAA RULE CHANGE EXPLAINED | USC Athlete Victoria Garrick</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Luke Montgomery Buckeye Offensive lineman for 2023
Posted by: Steve - 02-26-2022, 02:51 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Luke-Montgomery-Buckeye-Offensive-linema_F577-LukeMontgomery_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="334" title="LukeMontgomery" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="LukeMontgomery" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Luke-Montgomery-Buckeye-Offensive-linema_F577-LukeMontgomery_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p><a href="https://twitter.com/lukeMonty8" target="_blank">Luke Montgomery</a>, 6'5" 270 lbs., out of Findlay Ohio High School recently committed to the Ohio State football team for 2023. Some teams thought he could also play defensive line but was rated on the offensive line and is coming to Columbus to play that position. He said shortly after a school event that he wants to compete and win a spot with OSU.</p> <p>Montgomery selected Ohio State because of the culture, coaches and teammates which were important to him. He committed to the Buckeyes at his school on the CBS HQ show. Ohio State moved from 12th in the country to 7th in the country with the commitment. So the class is well on its way to be a top 5 rated class as they seem to always finish. OSU offensive coach Kevin Wilson coached Montgomery's father when he attended Miami (Ohio), so there was more than one connection for the young prospect.</p> <h2>Who Recruited Montgomery</h2> <p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2783/Kevin-Wilson-Has-Hoosiers-Believing-In-Themselves" target="_blank">Kevin Wilson</a> and Justin Frye for Ohio State. Bill O'Brien for Alabama. Sherrone Moore for Michigan. Mike Elston and Marcus Freeman for Notre Dame. And Robbie Caldwell for Clemson.</p> <p>Montgomery had over 30 Offers including Michigan, Ohio State, Clemson, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Alabama as his favorites.</p> <h2>Montgomery Visits</h2> <p>Ryan Day, line coach <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/3136/justin-frye-offensive-line-coach-for-ohio-state" target="_blank">Justin Frye</a> and Corey Dennis from Ohio State visited Montgomery during a basketball game in Findlay on January 14th. Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson visited Findlay for a basketball practice shortly after. Montgomery visited Ohio State with his parents at the end of January. His parents thought he was ready to commit to the Buckeyes during the visit but he waited a little longer to consider other programs.</p> <p>Other visits included Alabama on June 14th, 2021, USC on April 23rd of 2021, Clemson on June 15th, 2021, Georgia on June 12th, 2021, Georgia Tech on June 13th, 2021, Michigan on June 10th, 2021, Michigan State on June 26th, 2021, Penn State on July 25th, 2021, And Oklahoma on June 19th, 2021. After each visit he came back and still had Ohio State as the top program on his board.</p> <h2>Ranking</h2> <p>Montgomery is considered a 4 Star, 49th overall, 4th best offensive tackle, and the best prospect in Ohio.</p> <h2>Crystal Ball Predictions</h2> <p>Bill Kurelic, Steve Wiltfong, Sean Fitz, Justin Thind, JC Shurburtt, and Hale McGranahan all thought Ohio State. Joseph Hastings, Carson MacRae, Eric Lammers, Richard Schnyderite, Dylan Callaghan-Croley also all had Ohio State as his destination.</p> <h2>Scouting Report</h2> <p>Started as a tight end and defensive end but has grown into the tackle positions. Has the ability to pull and make plays out in space. Has experience at a number of spots on both sides of the line. Has a high school freshman brother, Ryan, that has also been offered a scholarship by Ohio State.</p> <p>He joins <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/joshua-padilla-2023-ohio-state-commit-at-offensive-lineman/" target="_blank">Joshua Padilla</a> from Ohio as lineman in Ohio State's 2023 class.</p> <iframe width="1048" height="590" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/zDB1UQHXY08" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>Luke Montgomery: Ohio State 2023 priority commits to the Buckeyes, ready to lead class</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Justin Frye Offensive Line Coach for Ohio State
Posted by: Steve - 01-11-2022, 08:57 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Justin-Frye-Offensive-Line-Coach-for-Ohi_10B64-JsutinFrye_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="JsutinFrye" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="JsutinFrye" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Justin-Frye-Offensive-Line-Coach-for-Ohi_10B64-JsutinFrye_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>According to a source, Ohio State’s search for their next offensive line coach is over. The eagerly-anticipated hire of <a href="https://uclabruins.com/sports/football/roster/coaches/justin-frye/3671" target="_blank">coach Justin Frye</a> is expected to get formalized early this week with an announcement. Throughout the league, coaches are familiar with the innovative and creative offense that has led to a high number of rushing yards each year. Also included in the announcement will likely be an additional title, such as run game coordinator. The Buckeyes are closing in on a deal with Frye, sources said.</p> <p>I think this will be a really nice move, he brings the knowledge, experience and track record of success. The current OSU offensive linemen are familiar with him and he can hit the ground running.</p> <h2>Replacing Greg Studrawa</h2><p>In replacing <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/2960/ryan-days-2019-ohio-state-football-staff" target="_blank">Greg Studrawa</a>, the Buckeyes are hiring Justin Frye (38 years old), an Indiana native who most recently coached at UCLA. Prior to that, he was a graduate assistant at Florida (2009-2010) and offensive line coach at Boston College (2013-17). Much of Coach Justin Frye's success off the field begins with his instincts as a player. After all, he played college football at Indiana University for 4 years.</p> <h2>Justin Frye and Ryan Day</h2><p>Frye's history of working with Ryan Day is also noteworthy because both men have a track record of producing top-notch results. They did it in similar fashion at Temple, where an improved offensive line helped the Owls go 9-4 and win their second bowl game in school history.</p> <h2>Justin Frye at UCLA</h2><p>In his first season at UCLA, Justin Frye directed an offensive line that helped the Bruins improve from 67th to fifth in the FBS by averaging 185.6 rushing yards per game. Prior to Frye’s arrival, UCLA averaged 152.8 rushing yards per game over the previous two seasons. In 2018, UCLA running back Joshua Kelley tallied 1,243 yards on the ground, which ranked 10th in school history for a single campaign.</p> <p>Frye helped anchor a Bruins' rushing attack that was second in the Pac-12 last season with 215.1 yards per game and 17th nationally in 200-yard rushing games (8). The Bruins were also second in the conference and 11th nationally with 36.5 points per game, while leading the Pac-12 with 441.2 total yards of offense per game.</p> <iframe width="948" height="533" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/y8Kh8dmXoS4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>Ohio State: Why Did Greg Studrawa, Buckeyes Part Ways?</h3><div class="feedflare">

  History of Jim Knowles, Ohio State Defensive Coordinator
Posted by: Steve - 12-10-2021, 05:12 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-History-of-Jim-Knowles-A-Defensive-Coord_C0FC-JimKnowles_4.jpg"><img width="364" height="484" title="JimKnowles" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="JimKnowles" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-History-of-Jim-Knowles-A-Defensive-Coord_C0FC-JimKnowles_thumb_1.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>Since Ohio State is hiring <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Knowles_(American_football)" target="_blank">Jim Knowles</a> as its defensive coordinator, it is crucial to have a brief history of the new Ohio State defensive coordinator. Knowles has already accepted the new role of shoring up a unit that some will agree had a rough time at various points this fall. Although most people will claim that they know Knowles well, the reality is that are some things that you probably didn't know.</p> <h2>What you should know about Jim Knowles Defensive Coordinator</h2> <p>On April 16, 1965, Jim Knowles was born and graduated from Cornell in 1987. He has been on the defensive end for many clubs, including Big Red Football. Further, he served as an assistant coach at the University of Mississippi and Western Michigan University. On December 28, 2009, the Duke under the <a href="https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/32738302/duke-football-coach-david-cutcliffe-mutually-agree-part-14-seasons" target="_blank">head coach David Cutcliffe</a> named him the defensive coordinator. Further, on January 29, 2018, Oklahoma State hired him as the defensive coordinator, and his performance has always been incredible.</p> <h2>A Track Record of Improvement</h2> <p>During Knowles's four-year tenure in Stillwater, Oklahoma State's defense improved each year progressively. Likewise, when the Duke tasked him with their team's defense, he also showed significant signs of improvement. The culmination of his efforts was his side being ranked 21st. Therefore, as he takes up his new role at Ohio State, everyone will be expecting him to deliver elite results as soon as possible. He will likely transform Buckeye's defense into one of the nation's best. Nonetheless, he will be inheriting more talent than he has ever had in his previous coaching tasks.</p> <h2>An Incredible Coaching Background</h2> <p>Because Jim Knowles has more than 30 years of experience as a coach, he has a varied coaching background that renders him a man to watch in the history of defensive coordinator. He has done a little bit of everything, and even though most of his focus has been serving as a defensive coordinator, his extensive knowledge will always prove essential. Moreover, Knowles was the head coach at Cornell and brought the accumulated experience to the rest of the staff.</p> <h2>He was in High Demand</h2> <p>The other exciting thing about Jim Knowles Defensive Coordinator is that he was in high demand. First, Ohio was not the only one who sought his services. For instance, at some point, people thought that he would replace <a href="https://hokiesports.com/staff-directory/brent-pry/3586" target="_blank">Brent Pry</a> as Penn States' defensive coordinator. Also, <a href="https://ragincajuns.com/sports/football/roster/coaches/billy-napier/1008" target="_blank">Billy Napier</a> was reportedly interested in getting Knowles' services.</p> <p>Additionally, <a href="https://okstate.com/sports/football/roster/coaches/mike-gundy/1946" target="_blank">Mike Gundy</a> was not willing to let Knowles out of Stillwater. He was seen promising that Knowles would be back in 2022. However, his dream seems to have become invalid. It is also worth noting that after <a href="http://brutusreport.com/" target="_blank">Ohio State</a> announced Knowles' hiring, many former and current players of Oklahoma State showed their love for the coordinator. The exhilaration put forward by these players is a sign of the high demand for Jim Knowles as a Defensive Coordinator.</p> <iframe width="932" height="524" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/jcuE4F40Wqs" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>What Ohio State is getting in new D.C.

  Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Wolverines 2021
Posted by: Steve - 11-27-2021, 12:58 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Buckeyes-at-Michigan-Wolverin_134B3-OhioStateMichigan2021_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="388" title="OhioStateMichigan2021" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="OhioStateMichigan2021" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Buckeyes-at-Michigan-Wolverin_134B3-OhioStateMichigan2021_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>Both the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan Wolverines enter Saturday's game 10-1 overall looking to place first in their division of the Big Ten conference, win a shot at the Big Ten title, and be selected to play in the CFB Playoff. Ohio State enters the game a 7 point favorite on the road in Ann Arbor. Michigan has had a hard time playing Ohio State over the past two decades including the years the Buckeye's were coached by <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/1294/urban-meyer-is-the-next-ohio-state-football-coach" target="_blank">Urban Meyer</a> and <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Tressel" target="_blank">Jim Tressel</a>.</p> <p>Both teams have released their hype videos with Jim Harbaugh asking his players "What have you done today to beat Ohio State?". </p> <h2>The Game</h2> <p>Noon in Ann Arbor and televised on Fox, The Wolverines hope to reverse their fortune against the Ohio State Buckeyes who have had the best of them since 2004. With the way Ohio State beat ranked Michigan State last weekend, many are worried the game on Saturday could also be lopsided. The Buckeyes lost to Oregon the first week of the 2021 season while Michigan fell to Michigan State 37-33 on October 30th.</p> <p>The teams were not able to play last year because the team from up north had lost too many players to Covid 19 quarantine to play. But now both teams are coming into The Game playing their best football of the year with the Wolverines winning three straight after their loss. Both teams coming into this game with a plan, knowing what they want to do on the field.</p> <h2>When Ohio State has the Ball</h2> <p><a href="https://www.espn.com/college-football/player/_/id/4432577/cj-stroud" target="_blank">CJ Stroud</a> has looked impressive after coming back from a one week break to rest his shoulder. Against Michigan State he threw for 6 touchdowns with 432 yards. Michigan's defense has been tough to beat this year ranking nationally seventh in points allowed and ninth in total yards allowed per game. Michigan will need to slow down Ohio State to keep the game close. If Ohio State can stop the pass run of Michigan and get the ball to their three 1,000 yard receivers, <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/ArticleId/2917/Ohio-State-Gets-Garrett-Wilson" target="_blank">Garrett Wilson</a>, <a href="https://efilmroom.com/Video-Vault/Video-Vault-Details/ArticleId/2896/What-Chris-Olaves-Commitment-Means-For-The-Buckeyes" target="_blank">Chris Olave</a>, and <a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2943/Jaxon-Smith-Njigba-Brings-4-star-Receiving-Talents-To-OSU" target="_blank">Jaxon Smith-Njigba</a> they should be in good shape.</p> <h2>When Michigan has the Ball</h2> <p>Michigan needs to run the ball, not become one dimensional, and not let Ohio State get a lead where Michigan needs to pass every down. If Michigan gets behind, then Ohio State's defensive line can come after the quarterback and we could see a similar game to last week against the Spartans. <a href="https://twitter.com/cademac_12?lang=ca" target="_blank">Cade McNamara</a> is the key for Michigan, if he can have a good game and mix up the attack, the Wolverines can stay in the game.</p> <h2>Final Outcome</h2> <p>Ohio State's offensive is too productive to not cover the spread and should win this game by over 7 points. The Buckeye's have been virtually error free and their defensive turned the corner early, become just as good as most of the teams in the country. Michigan will have to find another bowl to play in after the missing the college football playoff once again.</p> <iframe width="709" height="399" title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ReB6eOrNaag" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture"></iframe> <h3>The Best of B1G Today | Can Michigan Finally Break Through vs. The Buckeyes? | Nov. 23, 2021</h3><div class="feedflare">

  Number 4 Ohio State vs Number 7 Michigan State 2021
Posted by: Steve - 11-21-2021, 08:32 AM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

The Spartans are already pounding on the door for the second-year coach. The 2021 team is strong enough already to finish in the top 3 of the Big Ten East, if not the top 2.</p> <h2>How to watch?</h2><p> Ohio Stadium 12:00pm November 20th on ABC</p> <p>The Spartans are a significant underdog in Saturday's game against No. 4 Ohio State (9-1, 7-0) in Columbus, where 100,000 plus supporters will make the visitors' upset dream even more difficult. </p> <p>Michigan State hasn't beaten Ohio State since 2015, a 5-year drought that will extend another year with a defeat Saturday in Columbus.</p> <h2>Buckeyes Last Week</h2><p> Had the Purdue Boilermakers 59-31 at home. Quite a performance against a team that came in looking like a strong defensive team with some real ability on offense.</p> <h2>Michigan State Last Week</h2><p> Played the Maryland Terrapins and won 40-21 at home.</p> <h2>When Ohio State has the Ball</h2> <p>There might be a lot of scores recorded with two powerful offenses on the field and the Spartans' poor pass defense. </p> <p>As we saw in the Spring Game, Ohio State vs Michigan State 2021 might be one of the best games of 2021. </p> <p>The Ohio State Buckeyes have a couple of capable running backs on their roster. TreVeyon Henderson has been splitting time with fellow <a href="https://fryingpansports.com/miyan-williams-from-winton-woods/" target="_blank">freshman Miyan Williams</a>, who has a 7.34 yards-per-carry average that ranks second in the FBS. </p> <p>Henderson was a high school standout in Hopewell Virginia, where he rushed for 2,736 yards and 50 touchdowns in his final three seasons. He visited Michigan, Clemson, Tennessee, and Penn State before committing to Ohio State.</p> <h2>When Michigan State has the Ball</h2> <p><a href="https://www.espn.com/college-football/player/_/id/4567048/kenneth-walker" target="_blank">Kenneth Walker III</a> of Michigan State leads major college football with 1,473 yards rushing. Only Marshall running back <a href="https://herdzone.com/sports/football/roster/rasheen-ali/6240" target="_blank">Rasheen Ali</a> has more touchdowns than the Wake Forest transfer. Had a 143-yard performance in their recent Saturday win against Maryland.</p> <h2>Final Outcome</h2> <p>This is a massive game. The winner advances to the Big Ten East championship game and the College Football Playoff.<br> The team to lose will likely be left out of the college championship playoff. </p><div class="feedflare">

  Ohio State Buckeyes Football vs Purdue Boilermakers 2021
Posted by: Steve - 11-14-2021, 11:04 PM - Forum: Football and Basketball - No Replies

<p><a href="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Buckeyes-Football-vs-Purdue-B_8776-OhioStatevPurdue2021_2.jpg"><img width="644" height="364" title="OhioStatevPurdue2021" style="display: inline; background-image: none;" alt="OhioStatevPurdue2021" src="https://brutusreport.com/Portals/0/DNNArticle/Files/1405/WLWimages/Open-Live-Writer-Ohio-State-Buckeyes-Football-vs-Purdue-B_8776-OhioStatevPurdue2021_thumb.jpg" border="0"></a></p><p>#19 Purdue Boilermakers 6-3 (4-2 in conference)<br> 3:30pm Ohio Stadium November 13th On ABC</p> <p>The Buckeyes haven't played the Boilermakers since that fateful night in 2018 when Purdue came into Ohio Stadium and knocked the Buckeyes out of playoff contention in a convincing upset. Ohio State was ranked 3rd in the country at the time and lost 49 to 20 against the unranked Purdue team.</p> <h2>Can Purdue upset Ohio State Football again?</h2> <p>Purdue pulled off a second upset of a ranked team last weekend, this time topping No. 8 Michigan State 40-29 on a great performance by <a href="https://www.si.com/college/purdue/football/purdue-quarterback-aidan-oconnell-named-big-ten-co-offensive-player-of-the-week" target="_blank">quarterback Aidan O'Connell</a>. O'Connell passed for 536 yards and 3 touchdowns on 40 for 54 pass attempts.</p> <p>Ohio State will return to the Horseshoe Saturday afternoon. Purdue is coming off the 40-29 win over Michigan State. How can the Buckeyes handle another upset? Follow along for live updates from Columbus all day Saturday.</p> <h2>Can Ohio State offense return to being prolific?</h2> <p>Ohio State’s quarterbacks and running backs had combined for an astounding 1,778 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns through the first nine games. Their average of 189 yards per game had the Buckeyes on pace to smash the program’s single-season rush record. But their last two games saw the points come less frequently and with more difficulty.</p> <p>I feel like we’ve been waiting to see if Ohio State can return to its almighty offensive prowess of the first part of the season. Since <a href="https://brutusreport.com/articles/latest/latest-articles-detail/articleid/3091/ryan-day-announces-2021-coaching-team-changes-at-ohio-state" target="_blank">Ryan Day</a> took over in 2019, the Buckeyes have never finished outside the top 25 in Football Outsiders S/P+ offensive ratings. The Buckeyes have had just one season with an adjusted scoring average below 30.0.</p> <p>And while Ohio State has leaned on its offense in Day's tenure, the Buckeyes have made tweaks that have turned them into something of an offensive juggernaut. Full-field reads are more difficult for opposing defenses, but I think the real boon has been the speed Ohio State is able to generate by catching opposing defenses out of position.</p> <h2>Ohio State Players Continue to Play Well</h2> <p>As the Big Ten season continues on Saturday, Ohio State has to prepare for an offense unlike any the Buckeyes have faced this season. Let’s take a look at some of the key players on the Boilermaker offense and defense.</p> <p>It’s been a quiet an beginning for the Buckeyes this season as they’ve remained relatively healthy with veterans such as <a href="https://escoutroom.com/eScoutRoom/Articles/Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2895/Chris-Olave-Yet-Another-Receiver-For-Buckeyes" target="_blank">Chris Olave</a>, <a href="https://brutusreport.com/Articles/Latest/Latest-Articles-Detail/ArticleId/2829/Sevyn-Banks-2018-Four-star-Cornerback-Commits-To-Ohio-State" target="_blank">Sevyn Banks</a>, Thayer Munford and Jerron Cage all making the most of their senior seasons.</p> <p>Rising redshirt sophomore Ronnie Hickman is a player we are all impressed with, as the linebacker from the 2019 class who sat out last year continues to impress with a strong performance in spring practice.</p> <h2>Watch Purdue DE George Karlaftis and WR David Bell</h2> <p>Ohio State will need to account for Purdue <a href="https://247sports.com/player/george-karlaftis-45572561/" target="_blank">defensive end George Karlaftis</a>, who leads Purdue in tackles for loss with 7.5.</p> <p>"They're a really good defensive line," said Karlaftis recently, who leads Purdue in tackles for loss with 7.5. "They have a lot of guys coming back so they have a lot of experience upfront. They play hard every single play. They don't take plays off."</p> <p>The Purdue football <a href="https://purduesports.com/sports/football/roster/david-bell/10852" target="_blank">wide receiver David Bell</a> had another monster game in the Boilermakers' 40-29 upset of No. 6 Michigan State. David Bell caught eight passes for 123 yards and a touchdown, but his work after the catch was what made this such a big day for him.</p> <p>"David Bell's the fastest guy on our team," Purdue quarterback Aidan O’Connell said. "Just watching him out there running about will give you an idea of how fast he is."</p><div class="feedflare">
