  • SPORTS MOMENT: Toss up between Beanie's leap at Memorial Stadium in Champaign and Braxton's game-winning toss last year vs. Wisconsin. Both happened towards my side of the stadium and both were the greatest feats I've ever witnessed.

Really cool opportunity for the Buckeyes on Saturday. Getting to train with the national team is no small thing, even if the US is a distant 3rd in the box pyramid. Fun to see if you're in Columbus. As an aside, I always wondered what happened to Gale Thorpe last year. He was a really good player for stretches, then wouldn't see the field.

Not Buckeye specific, but the #1 2020 recruit in the country just flipped from Penn State to Duke. Huge blow for them. Penn State has only made the tourney 4 times, and never won a game in the postseason. Brennan O'Neil would have helped them change that.

Very light writeup of the weekend's events. A great game for a great cause. Not much on lacrosse, but it's more than okay.

Awesome! Hope your son has a great time. It's a special event in honor of Coach Breschi's son. I'm hoping someone streams it, though I am not getting my hopes up.

Freshman Jack Myers with the crease dive goal vs the Machine that should have been disallowed (watch his left foot).

WHOOP WHOOP. Sound the commitment klaxon. OSU flips a top 100 pole from Loyola.

Ohio State played against the Ohio Machine and Denison. The team played its (presumed) number ones against the Machine and played the young guns against Denison. It showed. The Machine overwhelmed the Buckeyes by just being better all around. Against the backups, Denison won 5-2 in a 40 minute running clock game. Takeaways: -Justin Inacio is going to be key. He won quite a few faceoffs, and looked really good against a pro setup. Had a goal off a clean win. Feliziani was...underwhelming. -Offensively, the Buckeyes struggled to get past any defender. Against both Denison and the Machine, middies really couldn't get separation. That's a problem. -Leclaire looks like he's playing A/M again. Came off the bench while Jackson Reid seemed to be out on the 1st attack line. Freshman Jack Myers was at X in an interesting development. He scored on a crease dive -Colby Smith scored two nice goals against the Machine. Could be an important piece for the Buckeyes this year. -Defensively, the Buckeyes looked off. Short sticks Maccani and Terefenko looked pretty good, but the long poles struggled. Borges played well, but the young guns seemed a step late at most every turn. Had intensity though. -Kirshon started in goal against the Machine. Made some saves, missed a couple. Not bad, not great game. All in all, it was a day of exhibitions against professionals and a top notch D3 squad. Not a lot of lessons to be learned. But it will be interesting to see if last year's troubles plague the team next year. Lots to work on over the winter.
