Overheard at Ohio State: Indiana Week

Overheard at Ohio State: Indiana Week

Among the hottest of topics this week was Ohio State's new look on offense, the one the Buckeyes displayed in a 30-0 wipeout of Illinois last week. Check out what the Buckeyes and their coaches were saying about that as well as what they'll need to do to slow down a new-look Indiana offense this week.

Every week during the season on the Ohio State football beat, we get more information than we could ever put into a story on BuckeyeSports.com, and in this weekly feature I try to touch on as many topics as possible by sharing everything that made its way into my reporter's notebook. You might find tidbits you missed or more details about something else you saw just a bit of during the week as the Buckeyes prepared for their first true road game of the season, a night contest at Indiana.

Having their say this week were Jake Ballard, Dexter Larimore, John Peterson, Paul Haynes and, of course, head coach Jim Tressel.

Find out what they had to say about Ohio State's new offensive look, stopping the varied attacks the Hoosiers will use and much more in the latest post in the Cus Words Blog.
