Players returning, QBs must play better
Sunday, October 2, 2011
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State gets three suspended starters back on offense this week. That's the good news.
The bad? None of them plays quarterback.
The offensive line was awful and the running attack was invisible in a dismal 10-7 loss at home to stout and sturdy Michigan State on Saturday. Still, the quarterbacks are getting most of the blame.
The addition of the players coming off NCAA suspension for taking cash and discounted tattoos -- tailback Daniel Herron, offensive lineman Mike Adams and wide receiver DeVier Posey -- should help the Buckeyes in some problem areas and add some much needed depth.
But their return doesn't address the huge problem of who will run the offense.
