Despite praise and accolades, J.T. Barrett is still earning his stripes

September 30, 2014
When the Ohio State football team took the field to open the season, Urban Meyer didn’t know what to expect from his quarterback. But five weeks and four Big Ten awards later, the OSU coach said he has a better idea of what redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett’s development has been like. “J.T. continues to be a very good distributor, completing a high percentage of his balls, and really we’re giving him more and more responsibility about getting us in the right play, which is a big part of what the quarterback’s expected to do,” Meyer said after OSU’s 50-28 win against Cincinnati on Saturday. On Tuesday, Meyer said his comfort level… Read more

Ohio State snaps losing streak with win against top-10 opponent

September 30, 2014
In the midst of a three-game losing streak, the Ohio State men’s soccer team might not have been banking on a win at No. 8 Louisville on Tuesday night. But the Buckeyes were surely glad to get it. OSU (3-3-3, 1-1-0) defeated Louisville, 1-0, to snap its losing slide on the strength of a first-half goal by senior midfielder Yianni Sarris. Sarris capitalized off a turnover by the Cardinals (5-2-1) late in the 34th minute and scored his third goal of the season, putting his team ahead for good. OSU was outshot, 15-6, in a contest that saw Louisville control the possession for most of the game. However, redshirt-senior goalkeeper… Read more
