Jalin Marshall ‘moving up the ladder’

September 18, 2014
During spring camp, redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall’s status was largely in question after the Middletown, Ohio, native underwent offseason surgery. Three weeks into the season, those questions are becoming a thing of the past. Marshall has already made his impact on the Ohio State offense, as he scored his first career touchdown last week against the Kent State Golden Flashes in a 66-0 victory. Following his first-ever score wearing the Scarlet and Gray, Marshall said he was happy to put the trials and tribulations of the offseason behind him. “I’ve had some injuries and setbacks, but the journey is worth it,” Marshall said. “This is a great university and crowd… Read more

Ohio State field hockey set to begin Big Ten play

September 18, 2014
Fresh off an overtime victory against Ball State, the Ohio State field hockey team is set to welcome No. 16 Michigan State to Buckeye Varsity Field on Friday to kick off Big Ten play. For OSU (2-3), the path to a conference championship could start with playing well against the Spartans. “I think we all just have to realize how important these Big Ten games are,” junior forward Peanut Johnson said Wednesday. “The NCAA Tournament is super selective, so it’s imperative that we win the whole Big Ten. We can’t really have any off games.” The Spartans bring a 4-2 record into Friday’s contest after outlasting Kent State, 4-3, in… Read more

Ohio State men’s soccer set for matchup with back-to-back Big Ten champions

September 18, 2014
Despite a big win against Northwestern last weekend, the schedule does not appear to be getting any easier for the Ohio State men’s soccer team as it continues Big Ten play. OSU (2-0-3, 1-0-0) won against Northwestern, 2-0, at home behind a pair of second-half goals. Now the team looks to carry that momentum into a matchup with the two-time defending conference champs — Penn State. “It’s going to take a lot (to get a victory),” junior defender Kyle Culbertson said. “It’s going to be a lot of effort from a lot of different guys. It’s going to be a tough game, it’s going to be a tough atmosphere, so… Read more

Ohio State women’s soccer looks toward trip to Penn State

September 18, 2014
Following a week of practice, the Buckeyes seem to have replaced the bad taste in their mouths left from a late-game collapse against Purdue. OSU (4-4-0, 1-1-0) enters Friday’s game at No. 8 Penn State (6-1-0, 2-0-0) with a chance to regain momentum and finish its three-game road swing on the winning side. “We’re excited about it,” OSU coach Lori Walker said. “It’s always a tough road trip since it’s a lot of time on the bus, but it’s a single game this weekend so we’ll get a little bit of rest afterwards.” The trip from OSU to Penn State comes in at about 325 miles. Putting together their “flashes… Read more

Ohio State focuses on pass defense during week off

September 18, 2014
In its season-opening win against Toledo last week, the Cincinnati football team attempted 42 passes. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he was worried the Bearcats could throw it 75 times when they face the Buckeyes, but then backtracked and decided his concern lies with a different statistic. “No, I’m worried they’d catch it 75 times,” Meyer said Wednesday. “It’s ‘cause they’re really good.” Meyer said pass defense is his main focus during OSU’s week off after a 66-0 win against Kent State last Saturday. Cincinnati redshirt-sophomore quarterback Gunner Kiel — who has just one game under his belt for the Bearcats — threw for 418 yards and six touchdowns… Read more

Bye week a mix of development, preparation for Ohio State football

September 18, 2014
The Ohio State football team is moving full steam ahead during its bye week. Coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday that his team has already started preparing for its matchup against Cincinnati next week and added that he is excited about the development of his young players.  “Its fun right now,” Meyer said of his plethora of young playmakers. “I kind of like where we’re at. We are still not the finished product, but a lot of those guys are young and they are going to be here for a while now.” One of those players is redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas, who, despite playing sporadically as a freshman in 2012,… Read more

Summer work pays off for Ohio State baseball

September 18, 2014
For some members of the Ohio State baseball team, the 2014 regular season wasn’t enough to fulfill their baseball fix. Several chose to spend the summer playing the sport as well. Of the 25 OSU ballplayers who participated in summer league baseball, five were named all-stars in their respective leagues. Outfielder Ronnie Dawson particularly stood out. The now-sophomore was named the No. 1 prospect of the Prospect League by Baseball America after batting .303 with 11 home runs and 17 stolen bases in 57 games for the Chillicothe Paints. The outfielder turned some heads during his freshman year for OSU, earning everyday playing time as the season wore on. “I… Read more

Lori Walker still humble after 200 wins

September 18, 2014
In her 18th season with the Ohio State women’s soccer team, coach Lori Walker joked that her hip hurts. Through 366 games with the Buckeyes, she’s stood for nearly 23 days, a price she’s had to pay for 200 wins. “It’s humbling,” Walker said. “When you hit a milestone like that, you stop and you reflect and you think about all the people who have helped you along the way.” Following the Buckeyes 2-1 overtime win against Indiana last Friday, Walker reached the 200-win plateau and continued her ascendance as OSU’s winningest coach in program history. Former Buckeye assistant coach Greg Miller discussed Walker’s humility as one of many reasons… Read more
