Columbus, Ohio.. Story By Michael Goins…Week one of the 2013 gridiron season got into full swing this past weekend and the Ohio State Buckeyes didn’t give the Buffaloes a chance to roam in Columbus. An fast paced early start proved too much for a young Buffalo team.

The convincing win, well sort of, wasn’t enough however, from keeping the Buckeyes from slipping in the polls. 103,980 scarlet and grey fans got a little giddish in a very warm Ohio Stadium as Buffalo made a game of it until Ohio State finished them off late.

It didn’t help Ohio State that Purdue loss big to Cincinnati and other Big Ten teams didn’t impress. There were however, some fantastic photo opportunities made available by some great Buckeye play and we’ve got them right here..

Here are all the comments and quotes from this weeks game from key players and coaches

 

Jordan Hall, senior halfback

On his role and how the team performed

“Wherever they put me I’m going to do what I can to help the team win. It was a good win. We’ll take it but we’re not satisfied with it. We know there’s a lot to work on. We have practice tomorrow, so we’ll get back to work.”

 

Ryan Shazier, junior linebacker

On missing game action

“When something happens on either side of the ball I feel like it’s my fault. When I wasn’t in I was listening to the crowd to tell if something was going on. I was just listening to try to figure out what was happening. I feel like with me not out there it hurts the team.”

 

On playing alongside a fast-paced offense

“I don’t care how quick the offense scores. They could score on one play every time. As long as they’re scoring, I’m all for that.”

On the game today

“It feels like a win. We got the victory, that’s all that matters. We need to do a better job. We’re supposedly the preseason No. 2 team in the nation. Today we did a good job but we weren’t playing to our potential.”

 

Michael Bennett, junior defensive lineman

On Ohio State’s first win of the season

“We’re 1-0. I think we’re a little disappointed and we know we have plenty of things to work on. We made a couple mistakes but it’s the first game of the season. You don’t want mistakes. You want to go out and have everyone execute well, but at the end of the day it’s about winning.”

 

On the tempo of the Buckeye offense

“It’s good to see we can play fast. We have to keep going with it though, keep putting up points and stopping them. To see us put up 23 points in the first quarter, that has to feel good.”

 

Corey Brown, senior defensive back

On the game

“It was good we came out fast, but obviously we let them back in the game in the second. The leadership was great on the field. I just think Buffalo caught us a bit off guard. I give them credit.”

 

Curtis Grant, junior linebacker

On his playing time

“To be honest I haven’t played a full game since my senior year in high school. Right now I’m really tired but it felt great to get out there.”

 

On playing with energy

“We learned we can always stick together but we need to push forward more. When the crowd is down we need to bring our energy back. Instead of taking our time we need to keep our foot on the gas pedal.”
