How ’bout a little weekend “catch up” of all the news and notes? Since it’s a Sunday, we’ve got to choose our soundtrack wisely- something sacred, perhaps.
Why should Georgia’s elite 2015 prospects consider Ohio State? “You get a premium education with the opportunity to go compete for a national championship in a large city that really has no professional sports team. There’s a lot to be offered up here.”
So, of course folks decided to make this statement a slight against the Crew and BlueJackets… because, Bianchi. At any rate, we remind you of this:
Ohio State was 1-2 in its games this week. Last Sunday, the Buckeyes had 15 hits in a 13-4 win over Mount St. Mary’s. Ohio State took the lead 3-2 in the bottom of the second after RBI singles from Tim Wetzel and Kirby Pellant. Mount St. Mary’s came right back, however, tying it up in the third at 3-3. The Buckeyes then scored 2, 5, 1, and 2 runs in the innings that followed to take a 13-4 lead, which would be the eventual final score. On Friday, Ohio State fell 5-2 to Connecticut in DeLand, Florida. Ryan Cypret was 1-3 for the Buckeyes with a solo home run in the second inning which tied the game at 1.

In the bottom of the fourth, they cut the Utes’ lead to 1, but got no closer.
