Buckeyes Clean Up Big Ten Weekly Awards

Blocked, touchdown Ohio State.

Ohio State not only continued its assault on a Big Ten championship Saturday night with a thrilling 40-30 victory at Northwestern, Monday morning brought home a plethora of conference weekly awards to Columbus.

Running back Carlos Hyde was named the co-offensive player of the week, along with Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah, cornerback Bradley Roby earned special teams player of the week honors and defensive lineman Joey Bosa was named the freshman of the week. 

For Hyde, the award represents the fourth straight week a Buckeye has been named offensive player of the week. Kenny Guiton earned the award after the Cal and Florida A&M games, while Braxton Miller's performance against Wisconsin got him offensive player of the week honors. 

Hyde rushed for a career-high 168 yards with three second-half touchdowns to bring Ohio State back from a 10-point third-quarter deficit. Thirty-eight receiving yards put him over the 200-yard all-purpose mark.  

Roby blocked a Northwestern punt in the first half and then fell on the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. Bosa finished with five tackles, two of the Buckeyes' five sacks and scored a defensive touchdown on the game's final play.

This is a pretty good haul for such a flawed game. Hard to argue that Hyde and Bosa earned it, though I'm sure all of the Roby critics around here were surprised to see his name offered, though his block play was definitely critical to the win.

Not surprised to see him win special teams player of the week; were it for defensive player of the week, I'd be stunned. That block was a thing of beauty.

No doubt the Roby critics thought he got in the way of RDS blocking the punt.

He totally did!  Shazer(Pusberger pronunciation) was totally going to block it first, but noooooo Roby had to come in and ball hog it and then get the TD. Sheash!

Point well taken, Roby has come under attack by a lot of fans, but as I've posted a couple of time, if he did not get the interception in the Wisconsin game the bucks might not have come out with the W and ditto for the blocked punt this most recent game.  He HAS to be in the game and I think he will start to get into the flow of things the second half of the season.  This bye week is great timing on so many levels, mentally and physically (other than the potential to move down in the polls even if you are not playing).

Bosa could have potentially won Defensive POY, he was a monster for us on Saturday.

As a Peace Corps Volunteer in a developing country, paying 8% of my monthly income to have fast enough internet in my cabin to watch the Buckeyes...imagine my dismay when my power went out during the 1st quarter on Saturday night and did not return. It is probably close to the dismay felt by thousands of NW fans after the B1G freshman of the week jumped on that ball in the endzone. Go Bosa! Go Bucks!
