Big Week in the Hayes division coming up.

The 1973 team has a tough assignment in playing the undefeated 2010 team.

The 1942 and the 1979 squads are playing winnable games, at least based on the records that have been posted.

A lot of the teams in the hunt are hot, and oddly that seems to mean something even in a game like SOM. 

I really don't understand the 1979 Buckeyes.  They've been either red hot and ice cold for two years running.  Last year, they lost their first four, won their next eight, then lost the final game of the year to barely miss the playoffs.  I'll predict both OSU 1973 and OSU 1979 get off the schneid with wins, and that OSU 1957 finally notches a W.

A must-win (or close to it) game for a couple of fairly evenly matched teams (and it showed).  The 2006 Buckeyes (temporarily, at least) hold the fourth and final play-off spot by 1/2 game.  Florida State is now in danger of losing their bowl eligibility status.

OSU’s Troy Smith (20 of 27 for 191 yards) and FSU’s Chris Weinke (19 of 29 for 181 yards) had solid games, as did OSU tailback Antonio Pittman (15 carries for 103 yards).

With the win, Urban Meyer’s 2013 Buckeyes leap-frog over Jim Tressel’s 2006 Buckeyes (again, temporarily, at least) by 1/2 game for the final play-off spot.  Earle Bruce’s reeling 1979 squad lose their fifth in a row and are eliminated.  OSU 2013’s Braxton Miller – 15 of 25 for 175 yards and two TDs passing and 39 yards and one TD rushing – and Carlos Hyde - 15 carries for 104 yards and a 20-yard reception – kept OSU 1979’s defense guessing all afternoon.

With some amazing red zone defense, Woody Hayes’ 1973 Buckeyes hand Jim Tressel’s 2010 Buckeyes their first loss of the season.  Moreover, with OSU 1942’s 24-16 loss to OSU 1998 – a real heartbreaker for Brown’s boys, who were mere yards away from the end zone when time expired – the 1973 Buckeyes win the Hayes Division and are the number two seed (behind Tressel’s 2010 squad) in the play-offs.  If the OSU Orphans beat the 2000 Oklahoma Sooners, they will lock up the third play-off spot.

WEEK 12 IN THE BOOKS
ONE WEEK TO GO BEFORE POST-SEASON BEGINS

With one week to go, most of the positioning for the play-offs and bowl games is complete.

First, the Non-Buckeye Division.  The 2001 Miami Hurricanes clinched a Bowden Bowl championship game bid with a 22-10 win against Auburn 2005, coupled with a 2004 USC Trojan 40-15 upset loss to the 2005 Texas Longhorns.  USC will play in the Consolation Bowl (hardly a consolation for them at this point), and Texas clinched third place and a Brutus Bowl bid with the win.  Florida State 1999 and Oklahoma 2000 still have a shot at fourth place and the Horseshoe Bowl, though FSU controls its own destiny in that regard.

As previously noted, the 2010 Buckeyes and the 1973 Buckeyes clinched play-off berths by winning their respective divisions.  I incorrectly stated that the Orphans would wrap up the third seed with a win.  A three-way tie between the Orphans, the 1998 Buckeyes and the 2013 Buckeyes is possible, in which case head-to-head games and point differential would be used to decide which two make the play-offs.  The 2006 Buckeyes also could sneak into the play-offs with a win and a little help from their friends.

The top offensive performers are listed below, but I should note a few excellent performances on the defensive side as well (especially Archie Griffin’s All-American free safety brother, Ray):

Here are the final week’s results with the final standings.  Urban Meyer’s 2013 Buckeyes made the playoffs with a narrow win against Paul Brown’s 1942 Buckeyes coupled with a loss by John Cooper’s 1998 squad.  OSU 1998 seemed to have their game in hand with a 21-6 lead at halftime, but Jim Tressel’s top-rated 2010 Buckeyes pulled out the 24-21 win.  The OSU 1998 loss also clinched a playoff spot for Francis Schmidt’s Orphans, but the Orphans nevertheless iced their cake with a 24-9 win against the hapless 1957 Buckeyes to grab the third playoff seed.

In the Non-Buckeye Division, Southern Cal defeated Miami, but the Canes already had clinched the division.  Oklahoma snuck into the bowl picture with a 23-2 win over Auburn while Florida State was choking big time against Texas, which nailed down a Brutus Bowl bid.

I’ll post the final stats and discuss the playoff picture next time.

I know you can’t wait.

COMPUTER OVERRULED, SARRINGHAUS NAMED CONFERENCE MVP

The computer selected Terrelle Pryor of the 2010 Buckeyes as the “Heisman” winner, but I thought multiple threat Paul Sarringhaus of the 1942 Buckeyes deserved the award a bit more.*

Certainly Pryor was a one-man show for OSU 2010, accounting for 80% of the team’s total offense.  He completed 54.3% of his 363 passing attempts for 2852 yards, which led the conference, and 15 touchdowns.  His 127.8 quarterback rating and 7.9 yards per attempt were, respectively, second and first in the conference among qualifying quarterbacks.  In addition, he rushed for 603 yards (19th in the conference) on 151 carries (4.0 average) and six touchdowns.  Though OSU 10 had an outstanding defense (first in the conference with 196 points allowed), they would not have come close to having their near-perfect season (10-1-1) had Pryor not been at the helm.

Paul Sarringhaus, on the other hand, had the type of all-around season that used to be the benchmark for the Heisman Trophy back when players were required to play on both sides of the ball. 

As a passer, Sarringhaus was 46 of 93 (49.5%) for 796 yards and four touchdowns.**  His 8.6 yards per attempt (17.3 yards per completion) and 129.1 quarterback rating were, respectively, first and second in the conference (though he did not have enough attempts to be included in the final league leaders in those categories).  

On the rushing side, Sarringhaus’ 718 yards (4.5 yards per carry) ranked him 13th in the conference, and his 15 rushing touchdowns tied him for first in that category.  (He also rushed for two two-point conversions.)

As a pass receiver, Sarringhaus caught 12 passes for 146 yards (12.2 average).  Two went for touchdowns.

Defensively, Sarringhaus (playing free safety) racked up 44 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks. 

On special teams, Sarringhaus handled the punting duties (55 punts and a 36.3 average) and returned kick-offs (20 for a 20.2 average).

          Paul Sarringhaus and Terrelle Pryor . . . into your living room.

 

Other players having excellent years and deserving consideration for MVP honors were:

Braxton Miller (OSU 2013) – completed 56.0% of his passes for 2105 yards (6.8 YPA) and 12 TDs and rushed for 728 yards (4.3 YPA) and 12 TDs.

Matt Leinart (USC 2004) – completed 61.2% of his passes, which led the conference, for 2301 yards (6.8 YPA) and 13 TDs.

Archie Griffin (OSU 1973) – led the conference by a wide margin with 1569 rushing yards (5.4 YPA and an average of 130.8 yards per game); he had 10 rushing TDs and was second in the conference in kick-off returns with a 26.9 average.

Chris Weinke (FSU 1999) – completed 56.9% of his passes and was second in the conference in both passing yards (2837 - 7.3 YPA) and TDs (19).

In the play-offs, each OSU team will play the other three, and the team with the best record will move on to the championship game (with the others going to the lesser bowl games according to their ranking).  Home field advantage will be "turned on" in the computer rules so that higher seed will get that added (but fairly small) advantage.  Also, there will be one 15 minute sudden death overtime period using the NFL rules (so the possibility of a tie is reduced, but not eliminated).

Round One
#4 2013 Buckeyes at #2 1973 Buckeyes
#3 Orphans at #1 2010 Buckeyes

During the regular season, Urban Meyer’s 2013 Buckeyes defeated Woody Hayes’ 1973 Buckeyes 27-22.  Since no one circles the wagons like Woody Hayes, I say OSU 1973 turns the tables and wins 23-17.

Way back in week one, Jim Tressel’s 2010 Buckeyes clobbered John Wilce’s Orphans 19-0.  Though I don’t see another shutout in the cards, I predict a fairly easy 24-10 win by OSU 2010 (which I think will end up in the Bowden Bowl this year).

COMPUTER OVERRULED, SARRINGHAUS NAMED CONFERENCE MVP

The computer selected Terrelle Pryor of the 2010 Buckeyes as the “Heisman” winner, but I thought multiple threat Paul Sarringhaus of the 1942 Buckeyes deserved the award a bit more.*

Certainly Pryor was a one-man show for OSU 2010, accounting for 80% of the team’s total offense.  He completed 54.3% of his 363 passing attempts for 2852 yards, which led the conference, and 15 touchdowns.  His 127.8 quarterback rating and 7.9 yards per attempt were, respectively, second and first in the conference among qualifying quarterbacks.  In addition, he rushed for 603 yards (19th in the conference) on 151 carries (4.0 average) and six touchdowns.  Though OSU 10 had an outstanding defense (first in the conference with 196 points allowed), they would not have come close to having their near-perfect season (10-1-1) had Pryor not been at the helm.

Paul Sarringhaus, on the other hand, had the type of all-around season that used to be the benchmark for the Heisman Trophy back when players were required to play on both sides of the ball. 

As a passer, Sarringhaus was 46 of 93 (49.5%) for 796 yards and four touchdowns.**  His 8.6 yards per attempt (17.3 yards per completion) and 129.1 quarterback rating were, respectively, first and second in the conference (though he did not have enough attempts to be included in the final league leaders in those categories).  

On the rushing side, Sarringhaus’ 718 yards (4.5 yards per carry) ranked him 13th in the conference, and his 15 rushing touchdowns tied him for first in that category.  (He also rushed for two two-point conversions.)

As a pass receiver, Sarringhaus caught 12 passes for 146 yards (12.2 average).  Two went for touchdowns.

Defensively, Sarringhaus (playing free safety) racked up 44 tackles, three interceptions and two sacks. 

On special teams, Sarringhaus handled the punting duties (55 punts and a 36.3 average) and returned kick-offs (20 for a 20.2 average).

          Paul Sarringhaus and Terrelle Pryor . . . into your living room.

 

Other players having excellent years and deserving consideration for MVP honors were:

Braxton Miller (OSU 2013) – completed 56.0% of his passes for 2105 yards (6.8 YPA) and 12 TDs and rushed for 728 yards (4.3 YPA) and 12 TDs.

Matt Leinart (USC 2004) – completed 61.2% of his passes, which led the conference, for 2301 yards (6.8 YPA) and 13 TDs.

Archie Griffin (OSU 1973) – led the conference by a wide margin with 1569 rushing yards (5.4 YPA and an average of 130.8 yards per game); he had 10 rushing TDs and was second in the conference in kick-off returns with a 26.9 average.

Chris Weinke (FSU 1999) – completed 56.9% of his passes and was second in the conference in both passing yards (2837 - 7.3 YPA) and TDs (19).

Troy Smith (OSU 2006) – came on strong at the end of the regular season to finish at or near the top in every major passing category, completing 57.4% of his passes for 2817 yards (7.6 YPA) and 17 TDs; he had a league best 129.2 quarterback efficiency rating

David Boston (OSU 1998) - 80 receptions, 16.4 YPC and 9 TDs.

Ron Dugans (FSU 1999) - 76 receptions, 15.6 YPC and 9 TDs.

It was a crowded field for sure.   Hard to overlook Pryor's performance, but you were the one closest to the games.  Football was a different game when Sarringhaus was playing.

It probably comes down to how one defines a "most valuable player". Is he the one with the most yards? the one who helps his team win the most? the best all-around player? In my league, wishbone/single-wing teams like OSU 1942 are limited in the number of times they are allowed to pass (though they still pass much more that they did in real life). When I saw that Sarringhaus' pass numbers were generally as good or better than Pryor's (number of attempts aside) and that he significantly out-rushed Pryor, I felt I had to go with Sarringhaus. The receiving, defensive and special teams stats, though not great, gave him the aura of the complete player, which I've grown to appreciate as I dig into the older teams. I don't think a two-way player, even if excellent on both sides of the ball - like Chris Gamble for Ohio State in the early 2000s - would get much notice these days (other than as a curiosity) unless he led the nation in a particular category. Braxton Miller in the upcoming season has a chance. Though not a defensive player, as a so-called H-back, he should have the opportunity to run, throw and catch and rack up a lot of yards in several categories.

Urban Tops Woody 31-17 in First Playoff Game

Urban Meyer’s 2013 Buckeyes defeated Woody Hayes’ 1973 Buckeyes in the first game of the playoff round by a pair of touchdowns. 

The score could have been much worse.  OSU 1973’s two touchdowns came on special teams (a 92-yard opening kick-off return by Arche Griffin) and a lucky freak play (a 47-yard fumble recovery scramble by offensive lineman James Kregel).  OSU 2013 more than doubled OSU 1973’s first down totals, and even out-rushed Woody’s run-heavy squad 194-163.  In addition, every time it appeared as though Greene, Griffin & Company had something going, they committed a turnover (they had three to OSU 2013's none) or a costly penalty (they uncharacteristically had 60 yards worth).

Player-of-the-Game Braxton Miller had a fine day through the air, and he overcame six sacks (three by Pete Cusick) to end up with 65 rushing yards.

With two more games to play, however, all is not lost for the 1973 Buckeyes (though they certainly cannot afford to lose again).

Next up, the Orphans and the 2010 Buckeyes square-off in their first game.

Orphans Upset OSU 2010 22-14

Francis Schmidt’s Orphans defeated Jim Tressel’s seemingly unbeatable 2010 Buckeyes with solid defensive containment of Terrelle Pryor (who got most of his rushing yards scrambling late in the game when he couldn’t find an open receiver) and an uncharacteristically productive ground game (which averaged 4.8 yards per carry).

Next, the Orphans next take on the 1973 Buckeyes in a must win game for Woody Hayes squad.  OSU 2010 also faces elimination against Urban Meyer’s 2013 Buckeyes.
