Week eight summaries.

For standing and stats, check out http://beta.strat-o-matic.net/forums/discussions/comments/?tDiscussion_id=2570

Ohio State 2013 (5-3-0) – 13
Ohio State 1968 (1-6-1) – 10
Once again, OSU 1968’s offense allowed a stellar performance by their defense to go for naught. Last week, Rex Kern & Company exploded for 38 against the Orphans, but this week managed only 35 passing yards and 136 rushing yards. Their only touchdown came on a 91-yard pick-six by cornerback Ted Provost, who intercepted Braxton Miller twice. Miller managed to have the best game for OSU 2013 (such as it was) hitting on 14 of 28 for 109 yards and rushing for 57 yards on 15 carries, including the game-winning seven-yard run with 15 seconds remaining.

Ohio State Orphans (4-4-0) – 27
Ohio State 1979 (4-2-1) – 20
Last week, the Orphans looked past lowly OSU 1968 to this week’s game and got their ass kicked. But they rebounded against the favored 1979 Buckeyes to remain in the thick of the playoff race. For the Orphans, quarterback Jim Karsatos, who has played unevenly in Round II, had a solid outing. He completed 17 of 27 for 245 yards, with one TD and no picks. On defense, linebacker Tom Cousineau collected a pair of sacks and nine tackles for the Orphans. For OSU 1979, quarterback Art Schlichter had an off-day through the air (10 of 22 for 117 yards), but led his team in rushing with 45 yards and a TD.

Texas 2005 (4-3-0) – 23
Ohio State 1998 (3-4-0) – 20
Longhorn quarterback Vince Young picked a hell of a time to have his best game of the year. Young hit on 21 of 31 for 179 yards and a TD and led all rushers with 122 yards on 18 carries and a TD. Tailback Jamaal Charles also has a fine game with 87 rushing yards and 53 receiving yards. For the Buckeyes, Joe Montgomery had 65 yards on seven carries, including a 30-yard breakaway run that almost tied the game late in the fourth. (Montgomery was dragged down from behind by cornerback Tarell Brown at the 12, and the Buckeyes had to settle for a field goal.) Punter Brent Bartholomew kept the Buckeyes close late in the third quarter with a 38-yard pass on a fake punt to flanker David Boston (five catches for 104 yards), which led to a wild fumble recovery touchdown on the next play.

Miami 2001 (6-1-0) – 36
Miami 1987 (4-1-0) – 3
The 2001 Hurricanes handed non-conference opponent Miami 1987 their first loss to stay ahead of the competition in the Non-Buckeye Division. Quarterback Ken Dorsey was 16 of 23 for 161 yards and three TDs through the air for the 2001 ‘Canes. For the 1987 ‘Canes, tailback Warren Williams rushed for 166 yards on 28 carries. Miami 1987 is ineligible for this year’s play-offs. They won the Bryant Conference a couple years back by defeating the 1973 Buckeyes 10-9 in the championship game. That one still stings the Buckeye faithful.

Southern Cal 2004 (5-2-1) – 13
Nebraska 1995 (1-1-1) – 13
In another non-conference game, the 2004 Trojans tied the 1995 Cornhuskers, which (like Miami 1987) knocked off Woody and his 1973 Buckeyes in last year’s Paterno Conference championship game, 38-14. Ouch! The Trojans nevertheless hang on to second place in the Non-Buckeye Division. For USC, Matt Leinart was 15 of 27 for 187 yards (he leads the conference in passing) and Reggie Bush collected 87 yards on 17 carries. A nice two-minute drill by Leinart was spoiled when kicker Ryan Killeen missed a 22-yard field goal attempt with :08 remaining that would have won the same. The run-heavy Cornhuskers had 271 yards on the ground, with halfback Lawrence Phillips rushing for 67 of them.

Ohio State 2006 (3-4-1) – 37
Oklahoma 2000 (2-5-0) – 13
In what arguably was a “must win” game for both teams, the 2006 Buckeyes exploded for 24 points in the fourth quarter to pull away from the 2000 Sooners. Big plays compensated for inconsistent offensive play by the Buckeyes. Tailback Antonio Pittman (166 yards on 18 carries and a TD) had runs of 27, 30 and 54 yards. Quarterback Troy Smith completed only 16 of 31 (for 216 yards), but hit Anthony Gonzales and Brian Robiske on 44 and 55 yard strikes, respectively. For Oklahoma, Josh Heupel, who otherwise is having a solid year, was only 14 of 33 for 119 yards. Tailback Quentin Griffin, one of the top rushers in the conference, collected 81 yards on 15 carries. All teams in the Tressel Division are now squarely in the running for a play-off spot.

Ohio State 2010 (7-0-0) – 40
Ohio State 1942 (3-4-0) – 17
The 2010 Buckeyes’ conference dominance was on display as they maintained their two-game lead in the Tressel Division. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor was 15 of 26 for 202 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown pass to DeVier Posey. Cornerback Chimdi Chekwa had a 49-yard pick-six with :08 remaining in the first half, from which Paul Brown’s 1942 squad never fully recovered. For OSU 1942, Paul Sarringhaus contributed in just about every aspect of the game, but to no avail. Sarringhaus, last week’s Offensive Player of the Week, was only 2 of 9 for 39 yards though the air, but he added 53 rushing yards (including a three-yard TD run), caught two passes for 28 yards, had an interception and four tackles, and handled the punting and kick-off return chores for the team. With the loss, the 1942 Buckeyes are tied for fifth place in the four-team play-off running. Next week they play the fourth-place 1973 Buckeyes in what should be an interesting match-up.

Florida State 1999 (3-5-0) – 34
Ohio State 1957 (0-5-2) – 28
Another heartbreaker for the 1957 Buckeyes. Last week, they lost to OSU 1942 Buckeyes 38-36 on a last-second, 50-yard field goal by Lou Groza. This week, their potential game-winning scoring drive was stopped at the Florida State 14 yard-line as time expired. They’ve lost their last three games by a total of 11 points, and they’ve tied two opponents. FSU’s Chris Wenkie was 18 of 24 for 257 yards and two TDs. He hit split end Ron Duggans seven times, including TD strikes of 27 and 25 yards. OSU rushed for 235 yards as a team, with quarterback Frank Kremblas, who played well down the stretch to keep the Buckeyes close, leading the way with 65 yards on 11 carries.

Between weeks 9 and 10 of my current Ohio State Challenge (the fourth such challenge), I thought I would provide a summary of the first three (if only to refresh my own recollection).  I’ll start with the first Ohio State Challenge from a couple years back (a good place to start).

In addition to Ohio State teams, the challenges have included great college teams from the past and were named after the winningest non-OSU coach from the particular era.  Ohio State Challenge I (The Parseghian Conference) included only four Ohio State teams, which were selected to represent the four winningest Ohio State coaches from the past 50 or so years – the 1973 Buckeyes (Woody Hayes), the 1979 Buckeyes (Earle Bruce), the 1998 Buckeyes (John Cooper), and the 2006 Buckeyes (Jim Tressel).  None of these teams won national championships, though they came close.  The non-Buckeye teams were Notre Dame 1966, Michigan State 1966, Texas 1969, Nebraska 1971, Southern Cal 1972, Oklahoma 1974 and Pittsburgh 1976.  Each OSU team played all other teams once.  The non-OSU teams did not play each other.  Overtime was used for all games, so there were no ties.

PARSEGHIAN CONFERENCE – FINAL STANDINGS

Buckeye Division         W    L     PF     PA
Ohio State 1979          7    3    183    134
Ohio State 1973          6    4    151    144
Ohio State 2006          5    5    201    174
Ohio State 1998          4    6    163    164

Non-Buckeye Division     W    L     PF     PA
Nebraska 1971*           3    1     82     51
Notre Dame 1966          3    1     79     49
Southern Cal 1972        2    2     64     60
Pittsburgh 1976          2    2     71     60
Oklahoma 1974            1    3     43     85
Michigan State 1966      1    3     52     78
Texas 1969               0    4     20    110
* division winner based on point differential

Because the non-OSU teams played only four games, few of their players were able to crack the conference statistical leaders.  Here are the top five passing and rushing performers from the Parseghian Conference.

PASSING LEADERS        Team Name            Rating    Pct   TD-Int   Yards
Troy Smith             Ohio State 2006       119.1   56.9   17-11    2565
Joe Germaine           Ohio State 1998       108.9   55.1   13-16    2139
Jerry Tagge            Nebraska 1971         107.4   58.2    1-2      401
Art Schlichter         Ohio State 1979       102.5   49.3   12-15    1722
Cornelius Greene       Ohio State 1973        61.4   34.2    3-9      476

RUSHING LEADERS        Team Name             Yards    YPA      YPG
Archie Griffin         Ohio State 1973        1057    4.5    105.7
Michael Wiley          Ohio State 1998         610    4.0     61.0
Antonio Pittman        Ohio State 2006         462    3.4     46.2
Calvin Murray          Ohio State 1979         432    3.7     43.2
Tony Dorsett           Pittsburgh 1976         389    3.7     97.3

The computer selected Art Schlichter as the Heisman Trophy winner, but I had to differ on that selection.  I thought Archie Griffin, who averaged over 100 yards per game against some tough run defenses, should get the nod (with Troy Smith a close second).

Two bowl games were played:  (1) the conference championship game (The Parseghian Bowl) between the 1979 Buckeyes and the 1971 Cornhuskers; and (2) the Consolation Bowl between the 1973 Buckeyes and the 1966 Fighting Irish.  In the Conference Championship Game, Earle Bruce and his 1979 Buckeyes shut out Nebraska 20-0 with running back Calvin Murray leading the way with 63 yards on 13 carries and 6 receptions for 58 yards.  In the Consolation Bowl, Ara Parseghian’s squad defeated Woody Hayes’ Buckeyes 20-17 in overtime.  OSU’s Cornie Greene hit on 7 of 10 passes for 146 Yards, but the stingy Irish defense held Archie Griffin to only 29 yards on 23 carries.  For Notre Dame, Terry Hanratty passed for 212 yards with all seven of his completions (including two TDs) going to end Jim Seymour.

For Ohio State Challenge II (The Bryant Conference), the national championship teams from 1968 and 2002 were added.  The non-OSU teams included six teams from 1979-88, including Paul “Bear” Bryant’s 1979 Crimson Tide.  As before, the OSU teams played all other teams once, and the non-OSU teams did not play each other.  Except for the bowl games, no overtime was used.

Jim Otis               Ohio State 1968         662    3.8     60.2

The computer selected Troy Smith as the Heisman Trophy winner.  Archie Griffin arguably deserved his second award, but I ultimately decided not to overrule the computer’s choice.

In addition to the conference championship game (The Bryant Bowl) and the Consolation Bowl, the Brutus Bowl (between the third place finishers) was added.  In the Bryant Bowl, Woody Hayes’ 1973 Buckeyes lost 10-9 to the 1987 Miami Hurricanes.  A missed extra point by Ohio State and a well-executed “two minute drill” by Canes’ quarterback Steve Walsh (19 of 31 for 209 yards and one TD) late in the fourth was the difference.  The Fighting Irish won their second Consolation Bowl by defeating Jim Tressel’s 2006 Buckeyes 31-27.  Notre Dame’s Tony Rice rushed for 79 yards and passed for 116 more.  For OSU, Troy Smith passed for 277 yards, but was picked three times.  The only bright spot for the Buckeyes was the inaugural Brutus Bowl, where Tressel’s 2002 Buckeyes trounced Barry Switzer’s 1986 Sooners 27-3.  For OSU, Craig Krenzel passed for 269 yards (160 of which went to Michael Jenkins) and Maurice Clarett rushed for 90.

For Ohio State Challenge III (The Paterno Conference), six more Ohio State teams were added: the 1954, 1961, 1984, 1995, 2010 and 2012 Buckeyes.  The non-OSU teams included great college teams from the 1990s, including Joe Paterno’s 1994 Nittany Lions.  The OSU teams played each other once and two games against non-Buckeye teams.  The top four non-Buckeye teams played one additional game at the end of the season to determine their final rankings.  Except for the play-offs and bowl games, no overtime was used.  For the first time, the Ohio State teams were divided into divisions and a play-off system was used to determine the top Buckeye team.  In addition, a fourth bowl game (the Horseshoe Bowl) was added.

The computer selected Terrelle Pryor (OSU 2010) as the Heisman Trophy winner, and I had to agree with that choice.  In addition to his excellent passing stats, Pryor rushed for 827 yards (5.0 average) and six touchdowns.  Tailback Eddie George (OSU 1995) also had an excellent year – with league-leading rushing totals, 44 catches for 450 yards (10.2 average) and 13 touchdowns overall – as did split end Anthony Gonzalez (OSU 2006) – with 90 receptions (17.0 average) and 13 touchdowns.

The Ohio State play-offs were a round-robin affair with the three division winners and the wild card winner playing each other once.  The final rankings (based on play-off wins and score differential), the bowl opponents (with their overall records), and the final bowl scores are set forth below.  It was not a good bowl week for the Buckeyes.  They dropped three of four.  Woody Hayes and his 1973 Buckeyes lost their second straight championship game and their third straight bowl game.  Maybe next year, Woody.

A big win by the 2006 Buckeyes, who (along with many other teams) are duking it out in the final three weeks for the three remaining play-off spots (the 2010 Buckeyes having already sewn up the top seed).

I mention it mostly, if not exclusively, because of the extraordinary numbers put up by OSU 2006’s Troy Smith.  (Granted, OSU 2013 has the worst pass defense in the conference, but still!)  Smith overshadowed a pretty good outing by Braxton Miller, as well.  I reprint both of their stats below. 

I’d ask other SOM footballers if they ever had a similar performance, but I don’t there are (m)any around these days.

In what could be the match-up that will determine the conference champion down the road, the undefeated 2010 Buckeyes (9-0-1) came from behind to defeat the top non-Buckeye team, the 2001 Miami Hurricanes (8-2-0).  The Canes now find themselves in a fight for first place with the 7-2-1 USC Trojans, who will face Miami in the final game of the season in two weeks.

Kudos to the Buckeye defense for shutting down Ken Dorsey and the explosive Miami offense in the second half.

What was the key to shutting down Dorsey in the second half?

A decent pass defense card and a few timely, lucky rolls.  Probably not much different than other SOM games (e.g., a good pitcher who beats the 1927 Yankees by getting many rolls in his best column).

I have some issues with how the SOM computer football game works, so I have a number of rules or protocols that help the opposing team when I'm managing the other.  If I allowed myself total control over my defense (where I have most of the restrictions) and my offense, it would be much easier to beat great teams like the 2001 Miami Hurricanes.  So this particular win was very enjoyable.

I do allow myself to employ a nickel defense (i.e., an extra defensive back and one less lineman) against a "jumbo" offense (two tights ends, two wide receivers and one running back), and I used it much more in this game than in previous games against Miami.  That might have helped.  Miami's backs - especially Clinton Portis - could have blown through my line for big gains more often, but that's where many of the fortuitous rolls helped.  (Better Portis running for 15 yards than Dorsey throwing an 80-yard bomb, I figured.)

 Seems like a good trade off to me.

Sometimes you need to be good, and sometimes you just need to be lucky.  With a little over two weeks left and six teams – all within a game of each other – fighting for three Ohio State play-off spots, those who grab one of those spots likely will need both.

Yesterday, Paul Brown’s 1942 Buckeyes (4-5-0) really needed to come up big against the 2005 Texas Longhorns (5-4-0), who likely will play in a bowl game (it’s just a question of which one).  The final score shows how close the game was, but it easily could have gone the other way.  Longhorn kicker David Pino missed an extra point, as well as a 28-yard field goal with just 0:22 remaining.  Earlier in the fourth quarter, an 88-yard punt return for a touchdown by Aaron Ross was nullified because Texas was offsides.  For the Buckeyes, fullback Gene Fekete did his best to keep the ball out of Vince Young’s hands by carrying the ball 20 times for 106 yards.

The 1942 Buckeyes have evened their record at 5-5-0 and are tied with Urban Meyer's 2013 Buckeyes for the third play-off spot.

STANDINGS AFTER WEEK 11 – ONLY TWO WEEKS LEFT!

After week 11, with two weeks to go, things are really tightening up in the race for the final three Ohio State play-off spots.   


After appearing as though they would run away with the Hayes Division, the 1979 Buckeyes have lost four in a row to drop to third place in the division.  But after steadily gaining ground on Earle Bruce’s 1979 squad, Woody Hayes’ 1973 Buckeyes have dropped two straight, opening the door for Paul Brown’s 1942 Buckeyes, who have won back-to-back games to pull even with OSU 1973 (though Hayes owns the tiebreaker with an earlier 27-23 victory against Brown).

Over in the Tressel Division, the 2010 Buckeyes have home-field advantage throughout the play-offs sewn up.  Only the goal of achieving an undefeated season remains.  At 6-4-0, after their impressive 28-7 win against the struggling 1973 Buckeyes, Francis Schmidt’s OSU Orphans have a one game lead for the first wild card play-off spot.  With the various tiebreakers going in just about every direction imaginable, the 1998, 2006 and 2013 Buckeyes all have shot at the postseason.

The fight for the Non-Buckeye division crown likely will come down to the final week’s  match-up between division leaders Miami and USC.

Hayes Division          W    L    T     PF     PA
