With not-ready-for-prime-time players in the offensive line most of the day, and some sprinkled into the skill positions on both sides of the ball, the annual Ohio State spring game — won 17-14 by the Gray — was a disjointed exhibition as expected.
Free-wheeling Ohio State safety Tyvis Powell made the most of his one play in the spring game spotlight today. In the aftermath of his interception of -- and subsequent sideline collision with -- quarterback Cardale Jones, he handed Jones the ball, put his arm around the QB and faked like he was taking a selfie to the delight of the crowd of 99,391.
A crowd of 99,391 watched Cardale Jones’ Gray team defeat the Scarlet 17-14 in Ohio State’s spring game this afternoon. Ohio State said that the attendance set a national record for a spring game.
“The crowd today was unbelievable. 99,000 was just wow! Having that many people at a spring game is really special” -- Tommy Schutt, senior defensive lineman
Sir: The contrast between the NBA and NHL was never more apparent than in two items from last Sunday’s "Dispatch."
It is just the spring game. The performances will be forgotten once fall arrives. Many of Ohio State’s star players will see limited or no playing time. But this spring game still will be special because the Buckeyes will play at Ohio Stadium for the first time since winning the 2014 national championship.
Perseverance pays in recruiting on both sides of the coin -- just ask Jack Wohlabaugh. The offensive lineman from Cuyahoga Falls (Walsh Jesuit), Ohio, was determined to earn a scholarship offer from reigning national champion Ohio State.
Forgive Ohio State tailback Ezekiel Elliott if his mind went blank upon learning he was one of six finalists for the Sullivan Award, which will be handed out on Sunday. Like most of his millennial peers, Elliott had no clue about the 85-year-old award, given each year to the nation’s most outstanding amateur athlete. Former winners include sprinter Carl Lewis, golfer Bobby Jones and skater Michelle Kwan.
