Game Day


The Justin Zwick era begins today in Columbus. Or does it? Troy Smith got drafted first when the players had to select, and while Coach Tressel has all but admitted that Zwick would start if the first game was today, observers have said that neither QB has clearly wrested the job from the other. Here are the rosters for today's Ohio State Spring Game.

The Buckeyes are inexperienced, especially on offense, but they are absolutely loaded and deep on the defensive side of the ball. The passing game can't be worse than what we watched for two years under Krenzel, and at RB, Lydell Ross has dropped some weight so he might be able to hold off freshmen Antonio Pittman and Eric Haw...for a while. I'll be sitting in the sun at The Shoe this afternoon, and I'll bring a full report back to Wizblog later this weekend.
