09/22/2011 - THIS WEEK'S GAME: Colorado at Ohio State, Sept. 24 - The Buckeyes return home after an embarrassing performance in a loss at Miami, and hope familiar surroundings give them some semblance of continuity, especially on offense. The Buffaloes are 1-2 after defeating rival Colorado State last week. That followed losses to Hawaii and California. KEYS TO THE GAME: The Buckeyes need to establish a passing attack early and often to keep Colorado from stacking the box with eight or nine players. The Ohio State cause would also get a big boost from a defensive score, or a turnover that sets the wobbly offense up on a short field. PLAYERS TO WATCH: C Mike Brewster - The senior All-American, who has to be the anchor up front for the Buckeyes' offense and the glue that keeps the offense together, will make his 40th straight start when Ohio State hosts Colorado. - The Sports Xchange

09/07/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: C Mike Brewster is the anchor of one of Ohio State's best offensive lines in recent years. The All-American from Orlando is a four-year starter with 37 career starts. - The Sports Xchange

09/02/2011 - On the first Saturday in September, in front of 106,000 eyewitnesses, Luke Fickell presides as head coach in a football game for the first time. Fickell, who took over for the deposed Jim Tressel in May, admits to having a few butterflies when he considers the gravity of his debut. Fickell has never managed a game with the No. 1 headset on, never made the hundreds of snap decisions that the head coach is called on to make through the course of a game, and never had to worry about the collective psyche of more than 100 players on his sideline. He wades into untested waters along with an Ohio State team that desperately needs to get back on the field. Ever since last December when the tattoo and memorabilia scandal broke, every Ohio State story has been dominated by the talk of NCAA investigations and sanctions, player suspensions, and worse. Tressel's self-imposed suspension and subsequent forced resignation were followed by the quick exit of former QB Terrelle Pryor, who jumped to the NFL rather than face the music over a raft of NCAA violations. With Tressel and Pryor gone, the resident Buckeyes had to answer the endless queries into the whole sordid affair. "I think everybody has been ready to get back to football for a long time," senior All-American center Mike Brewster said. "It's not about the past and all of that. It's about the guys that are here now. We're ready to go play football." - The Sports Xchange

08/23/2011 - As the Buckeyes limped toward the start of fall practice, still reeling from nearly seven months of NCAA investigations and a scandal that seems to have taken on a life of its own, they've put on a brave face and tried to present the notion that it is business as usual. That's a particularly tough sell, given that iconic head coach Jim Tressel resigned in disgrace in late May as the walls closed in around him over his role in concealing likely rules violations from his superiors and the NCAA. The Tressel era, replete with Big Ten championships, BCS bowl games and the program operating at the highest tier of Division I, closed with a huge thud. Record-setting quarterback Terrelle Pryor then skipped town and sought work in the NFL after the finger of guilt kept pointing in his direction. Former Buckeye defensive lineman Luke Fickell, who had been on Tressel's staff as a defensive coach, was pushed into the breach, first as interim head coach, and then as Tressel's permanent replacement. The turmoil and chaos has been going on nearly non-stop, but the leaders on the team insist they will still contend for a Big Ten title. "This has definitely been something that has brought us closer together," senior center Mike Brewster said when the conference's coaches and top players took part in Big Ten Media Days in Chicago about a week before the team was to gather back in Columbus for the start of fall camp. "I think we're hungrier than ever, and anxious to show people what we're made of." - The Sports Xchange

03/31/2011 - While Jim Tressel's NCAA violations hang like a specter over his program, the Buckeyes begin spring practice faced with a number of other key questions. Tressel says it's going to be "a little bit different team" on display during the 15 workouts which began Thursday. The Buckeyes, who went 12-1 last year, have been hit heavily by graduation, and also by suspensions - with five standouts including starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor out for the first five games this fall for accepting improper benefits. On top of that, the NCAA is investigating Tressel for knowing about, but not telling anyone of those improper benefits for almost nine months. Still, with all those dark clouds hovering, it's still back to business for the Buckeyes on the field. - AP Sports

01/10/2011 - Center Michael Brewster said today he will return for his senior season at Ohio State. "I want to be a leader on this team in the 2011 season, and I think I'm ready for that," Brewster said. Leadership for the 2011 Buckeyes is in a state of flux at the moment, with five junior stalwarts - quarterback Terrelle Pryor, running back Dan Herron, receiver DeVier Posey, left tackle Mike Adams and defensive end Solomon Thomas - facing a five-game suspension to start the season, though OSU is in the process of appealing those suspensions. Personal improvement is also one of Brewster's goals, even if he was named first team All-America by the Football Writers Association of America this season. "This was really my first season understanding how to play center," said Brewster, a third-year starter who was a high school All-America tackle in Orlando, Fla. "I made a lot of progress, and I think I can make that much more progress with another year at Ohio State. "Then I think I will be really ready for the NFL. I think it will make me that much more confident about making the step to the next level." - Tim May, The Columbus Dispatch
