Skull session: Ohio State dominates Rutgers again, fake Punt Fiasco goes viral, Mian Williams joins two Buckeye greats in record books

Happy Michigan State Week, Eleven Warriors readers.

Ohio State 5-0 and on the go after defeating Rutgers, I’m sure you all know what the best part about being 5-0 is…

Let’s have a good Monday, shall we?

wait. Another quick thing. Check out this monster block from Cade Stover.

Well, have a good Monday. See you in the comments section.

consistent dominance. When Rutgers Corporation became a member of the Big Ten in 2014, then-commissioner Jim Delaney cited the Scarlett Knights’ “sporting excellence” as one of his driving factors for adding the school.

Eight years later, the one thing I consider excellent about the Rutgers is their ability to be Ohio’s doormat every season. According to ESPN, the Buckeyes’ nine consecutive runs of at least 49 points against the Scarlet Knights represent the longest streak of any team against a single opponent since 1936.

Quite frankly, I don’t see a time in the near or far future when Rutgers won’t be exactly what they currently are in the Big Ten. The school feels like it doesn’t belong in the convention, and that’s clear when Ohio State bullies them like a group of five that the Buckeyes will face at a non-convention table.

Until Saturday, when many said the Ohio State offensive—which was without TreVeyon Henderson and Jaxon Smith-Njigba—looked slow outside Miyan Williams, the Buckeyes won by 39 points. So yeah, Rutgers probably doesn’t belong, but the Crimson Knights are here anyway. Enjoy a free win against them for the rest of the time, Buckeye Nation.

FAKE PUNT FIASCO. I can’t talk about Ohio 49-10 win over Rutgers no mention Fake Buckeyes Gamble that went viral on Saturday. There is so much that happened in this play and after that we don’t even talk about it.

With just over 10 minutes left and Ohio State scoring 39 points, Jesse Mirko was poised to accompany Rutgers to football. Instead, the rugby-style gambler saw a lane open in front of him and set off for 22-yard gains. At the end of the race, Rutgers wide receiver Aaron Cruickshank scored a late strike. That’s when all hell broke out.

To be clear, it wasn’t a fake design. The Scarlet Knights had eight players in the line of scrimmage and sent home to fend off a punt. After Ohio State successfully defended the rush, Mirko realized that no one stood between him and the number one spotter, so he put the ball under his shoulder and ran. That’s what his teammate, Noah Ruggles, sees, at least.

After a Cruickshank hit and the ensuing drop, Greg Schiano sprinted across the field to take on Ryan Day and break up the brawl. The coaches shared some picks on the hottest things to do in Columbus.

In his post-match press conference, Day said he had “no hard feelings” toward Chiano and added that he was “incredibly respectful” of Buckeye’s former assistant. Whether or not you think is up to you, as is how to make a fake Mirko bet.

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the Ohio State coaches approved of Mirko’s decision to rig the bet, but he must have done something right to win the program’s Tag Team Player of the Year award.

feed. Mian. What about Meanne Williams? performance against Rutgers? The third year in a row captured 21 carry-ons for 189 yards and five touchdowns on Saturday. His five-point tie with Pete Johnson (versus North Carolina, 1975) and Keith Byars (versus Illinois, 1984) in favour. Record drop-off in one game at Ohio State.

“It’s a blessing to be there with their names on,” Williams said after the match. “These are legends here, so it’s definitely a blessing.”

Williams is right that Johnson and Byers are Buckeye legends. Their names were scattered all over Program log book on the football website. Although they’re not Archie Griffin – who played with Johnson – or Eddie George, both contestant backs deserve a seat at the table of the greatest ball carriers in Ohio State history.

Let’s take a look at how these legends played in their five matches, starting with Johnson’s performance against Tar Heel:

September 27, 1975: Ohio State 32 – North Carolina 7

Pete Johnson: 26 gigs, 148 yards, 5 TDs

  • 2h 3:20 – Johnson 2 Yards TD Range
  • 2Q, 0:31 – Johnson 5 Yards TD Range
  • 3 Q 8:32 Johnson 1 yard TD run
  • 4Q, 13:01 – Johnson 2 Yards TD Range
  • 4 Q 8:48 Johnson’s 3-yard TD run

Fun fact: Griffin had 22 holders for 157 yards in this game and won his second Heisman Cup at the end of the year.

October 13, 1984: Ohio State 45 – Illinois 38

Keith Pearce: 39 holds, 274 yards, 5 TDs

  • 2 Q 4:13 – Running Byars 16 yards TD
  • 2Q, 0:23 – Byars 4 Yards TD Range
  • 3h, 13:40 – Byars 1 yard TD Range
  • 3 o’clock 8:57 – Byars 67 yards TD range
  • 4Q, 0:36 – Byars 3 Yards TD Range

Fun fact: Pierce lost his shoe about halfway through his 67-yard run in the third quarter. Despite that, he still got past the Illinois defense and ran all the way to the finish zone. As you can imagine, Ohio Stadium has gone crazy.

Williams was right. Johnson and Byers are Ohio legends, and these two games from them are just a small part of their stories as the Buckeyes. Mae Williams’ quintet performance against Rutgers is only a small part of his (possibly legendary) story here, too.

Granted wish (kind). If Ohio State’s season ends after the Rutgers game, Ryan Day will have his pre-season predictions for a top-ten defense matched by Jim Knowles and the Silver Bullets.

The Buckeyes have the 10th overall defense (263.8 YPG) and the 14th scoring defense (14.80 PPG) in the country through five games. Additionally, Ohio State has seventh place in pass defense (153.4 YPG) in the NCAA this season.

When using conference stats only, Knowles’ unit ranks second in scoring defense, No. 1 pass defense and No. 8 in lunge defense in the Big Ten after Ohio State’s wins over Wisconsin and Rutgers in their last two games.

The Buckeyes will face a rising Michigan State team this weekend, which should only improve their defensive stance both nationally and in the Big Ten, where the production’s Spartans offensive has struggled consistently for three straight losses.

With that said, Ohio State’s defense is well on its way to meeting Day’s predictions for the top 10 defense. However, it still has some work to do if it is to meet Knowles’ expectations for the first five unit. As for Andy Vance, we expected Buckeye’s defense to be 30% lower than it was last season, so they’re doing a good job in his book.

It’s time for Knowles, Tommy Eichenberg, Steele Chambers, and the rest of the Buckeyes to keep this thing moving.
