2012 Ohio State Spring Game Results: Urban Meyer Makes Aerial Debut

With an announced 81,000 in attendance for Urban Meyer's public debut, the Ohio St. Buckeyes put on a little bit of a show. Quarterback Braxton Miller, Meyer's prized weapon, put together a 65-yard touchdown drive in the first two minutes, and we were off. Miller went four-of-four on the drive.

Miller's Scarlet team topped Kenny Guiton's Grey, 20-14, meaning Grey has some community service work ahead. Guiton held his own on the day, going 16-of-24, while Miller was a solid 24-of-31. An Ohio State quarterback threw 31 passes in a half or so, and now we've seen it all.

Ryan Shazier was the defensive star, with seven tackles. Freshman Michael Thomas broke out on offense with 12 catches ... which would've nearly been the season high among all Buckeye receivers last year.

Meyer's new spring tradition of pouring pressure on his kickers continued, and at one point he halted action in order to have Drew Basil try six attempts of increasing difficulty. The coach motioned for the crowd to make more and more noise during the demonstration, which topped out at a missed 58-yarder. Last week, Meyer had a mob of fans surround his kicking unit on the field.
