Things to watch in Ohio State’s spring game


Ten things to watch in Ohio State’s spring football game Saturday in Ohio Stadium:

Matt’s Take: No excuses … beat the Brewers


After a very disappointing series loss to a bad Mets squad, the Cincinnati Reds go right into playing the Brewers, an NL-Central Opponent who has dominated our club in years past. I love scoreboard watching towards the end of the season, but one thing we all need to understand is the importance of all 162 games. Too often do we overlook these early series against opponents that we will be fighting against for a playoff spot in just a few months. Cincinnati is currently 2.5 games back from first place, but they have a chance to really make up some ground against Milwaukee and the rest of the teams in our division if they find a way to win this series. No more excuses, warm up the bats, and let’s go dominate Milwaukee before heading to Chicago!
