Ohio State Football — 2012 Spring Game: Thoughts and Highlights



The Urban Meyer era felt that much closer to officially kicking off Saturday as Ohio State held their annual spring game — their first under Meyer — in front of more than 81,000 Buckeye faithful.

QB Braxton Miller looked sharp running Meyer's new, fast-paced spread/zone-read/option offense as did RBs Carlos Hyde, Rod Smith, and Bri'onte Dunn, but the biggest surprise — thankfully — was the play of the receiving corp.

True freshman Michael Thomas, along with Corey "Philly" Brown, Chris Fields, and Devin Smith all looked ready to step up. Thomas posted a ridiculous first-ever-game effort en route to taking MVP honors with his 12 catch, 131 yard performance.

Just as a reference to how impressive Thomas' single-game stats were, last season, Jake Stoneburner, Smith, and Brown were tied for the team lead in receptions for the entire year with only 14 each.

The following game highlights were produced by lednerk, and are presented exclusively by BlockONation.com

  1. As much as the scarlett blood runs through my veins, it pains me to point out that the counter in the upper-right corner of this page is inaccurate, as the maize-n-blue did chalk up a "W" against our Buckeyes last year. But... Let the Urban Era Begin!!!!

    1. The counter is not inaccurate.

      Here's exactly what it says, except I've added bold print for you, so now, read it again...

      It had been 2,926 days (8 years, and 6 days) since Michigan last beat Ohio State in football...

  2. ...a side note (about the counter)... we can adjust the count to start from November 18, 2000... the last time the team up north defeated the Scarlett-and-Gray at The Shoe!
