Simmie Cobbs A Bright Spot For IU In Loss To Ohio State

IN had all the momentum.

This was evidently Kevin Wilson and Meyer's solution to patching up the passing game, rather than adding some of the other dimensions that had served Wilson well as a coach at IN or Oklahoma. The Buckeyes have National Football League talent all over the roster, and once everything started moving in the right direction we saw just how good this team can be.

No. 2 Ohio State senior quarterback JT Barrett entered Thursday's season opener at IN on the verge of history, as he was just 5 yards away from breaking Art Schlichter's school record for total yards gained IN a career. Barrett found a wide-open Johnnie Dixon for a 59-yard score next. He notched two scores for the Hoosiers. Williams rushed for two touchdowns in the win over the Hoosiers. His ability to high-point the football and adjust on the play is unparallel in college football this season.

It didn't look like that early.

The Buckeyes have won 21 consecutive games against the Hoosiers and lead the all-time series 72-12-5.

In the first half the freshman showed a knack to make people miss and fight for extra yards. Campbell was OSU's top receiver with 6 catches for 136 yards. He's the receiver the Buckeyes are counting on most.

He also ruined Indiana's big plans for what had been billed as the biggest opener in school history - a nationally televised game with ESPN's "College GameDay" crew in town. The Buckeyes held off IN, 49-21, though they did not provide affirmative answers to the offensive questions lingering IN the aftermath of that whipping IN Glendale on New Year's Eve.

True freshman J.K. Dobbins earned the start and ran for 181 yards on 29 carries, breaking Maurice Clarett's yardage record for a freshman in a season-opener. Key play: Barrett's 13-yard run on 3rd-and-1 to the IU 45.

Tailback Mike Weber couldn't go because of a nagging hamstring injury, but he might not be needed to beat the Sooners.

JK Dobbins has his first 100-yard game as an Ohio State Buckeye (after less than 2 quarters). The last six plays - all runs - accounted for 53 yards. The long run? Nine yards.

The same goes for an aggressive front seven, which made IN one-dimensional.

The Buckeyes marched down the field on the game's opening possession before the drive stalled, settling for a 27-yard field goal by Sean Nuernberger. Defensively, Indiana football gave up 380.1 total yards, 219.7 in passing and 160.4 in rushing. The defense picked up their play simultaneously along with the offense!

It shouldn't come as a surprise.

Allen said he keeps telling players it will be a game of adjustments on both sides. Ohio State won't travel to Nebraska until October 14, and they have November dates at Iowa and MI.
