There are 31 comments on the Columbus Dispatch story from Apr 23, 2011, titled Ohio State football: Offense owns the day in final scrimmage | BuckeyeXtra. In it, Columbus Dispatch reports that:

If today's Ohio State spring-ending scrimmage in Ohio Stadium was any indication, freshman quarterback Braxton Miller has to be considered a serious contender for at least playing time in the fall, when the Buckeyes will face the first five games without suspended three-year starter Terrelle Pryor.

44,000 for the spring game and no sell out of the Sugar Bowl.

Ohio State has officially jumped the shark.

Braxton Miller looked good today. 44K people were there to see the game which is pretty good considering the price of tickets were raised to $7 and $15 and the threat of rain during the game.

Nice to see Toilet Paper on the field. How soon before he leaves Columbus along with the 4 others? Give the keys to Miller and let him take it over.

44,000 people for this spring game was more than I thought would show up-what with the cost of the game, parking, rising gas prices and the bad weather. It is good that opportunities like these can occur, because most people cannot get tickets or afford to go to an OSU game.

From my couch it looked like Guiton to flanker where the team has a real need, and Bauserman to concentrate on his studies so he can get a real job in the working world.

Graham and Miller looked good going in to fall, with Guiton playing football and there as needed at QB.

I sure hope Bauserman is not the starting quarterback come this fall. The other three are better on their worse days.
Graham looked good on passing, but overall, I have to go with Miller. I know he is young and inexperienced, but he is more talented overall than any of the other ones. I thought Guiton would look better by now. Bauserman needs to go back to baseball.

Funny. That's just an ignorant comment if there ever was one.

I get what you're trying to say, but you're using the phrase incorrectly. Ohio state jumping the shark would be something like bringing in professional wrestlers to fill in the missing line spots in order to generate interest in the spring game.

You do realize that today was a scrimmage and it was under controlled circumstances? You need to calm down.

All 4 QB looked good at time. Graham's long TD pass was beautiful & perfect. The best thing about the offense was NO TURNOVERS. The best thing about the defense is THEY LOOK TOUGH AS A UNIT even though many are young. We have a good team with great potential.

What was with those rediculous helmets? Was that yet another "honor" to the military? It has become overkill that ever sports team feels the need to connect with its drunken low brow fan base by honoring the military at every event. Wake up, people. Further, the irony is that with all of tis effusive homage, none of these "student athletes" will enter the armed forces. it is time to leave military/politics out of sports.

95000 in attendance at OSU spring game in 2009, 66000 in attendance in 2010, and 44,000 in 2011. See a trend. Tressel should go.

So common to have a Mich. fan claiming to be a Badger get aboard the Buckeye bandwagon. NCAA won't shut tOSU
down enough to make your team significant.

Jordan Hall stood head and shoulders above all players this scrimmage.
Miller stands out where no QB really made a statement like Joe Germaine did in the spring game in 1996. Graham showed me something on his near pick ... he felt heat from near blind angle and got a good throw off that hit the receiver in the hands. The ball went through his hands and was nearly picked. Two or three plays later he calmly launched the 68-yd TD against a CB and FS I'd never heard of before. Still, a pretty play and Graham showed some pocket presence.
Guiton looked OK; his TD pass was Troy-like, but he's still not ready to take over.
Simon and Williams looked good on defense, as did Sweat and Johnson. OL looked bad most of the time in pass protect (except on the Graham long TD).

Not claiming to be a badger just thought it would get under your skin and it worked! Im aware Michigan has sucked but atleast they own up to mistakes and don't act like morons at their press conferences! OSU is screwed keep drinking your Kool aid and I'll wait for that earth quake to do us all a favor!
