Ohio State put the final stamp on their spring practices in front of more than 80,000 fans at the Shoe on Saturday afternoon with the annual Scarlet-Gray game. The Gray will be walking home and subjected to community service in the fall, as they fell to the Scarlet 20-14.
The Urban Meyer era got off to a fast start with the implementation of the no-huddle spread. Quarterback Braxton Miller was 4-for-4 on a quick, two-minute 65-yard drive just before the half and looked very good early. Miller finished 24-for-31 with 258 yards and may have found himself a new favorite target in freshman Michael Thomas. Thomas finished with 12 receptions for 131 yards, although much of that may have come against OSU's lack of depth at cornerback.
Kenny Guiton established himself as the backup quarterback with over 100 yards passing and a couple of touchdowns for team Gray in the losing effort.
