Cordle hurt, Browning is a Captain

OSU FootballTwo quick notes before we get to the Toledo preview.

Jim Cordle has injured his ankle, opening the door for JB Shugarts to take over the tackle spot for the time being.

Senior right tackle Jim Cordle has an injured ankle and is expected to miss the next 3 or 4 weeks. Sophomore J.B. Shugarts will start against Toledo on Saturday, his first career start.

The linked article is actually full juicy nuggets. Among them:

Browning, a Cleveland native, is the offensive captain this week. The game will be played in Cleveland Browns Stadium.

I find this interesting, because I think Browning has been struggling (that’s being generous), but maybe this is the kind motivation that could light a fire under his ample behind and he finally starts blowing some people up.

Jordan Hall is the third tailback right now. Jaamal Berry has been nursing a minor injury, possibly a hamstring. Neither has played this season, but Tressel said he still intends to play both at some point.

The order at receiver now is so: DeVier Posey and Dane Sanzenbacher are the top two, followed by Duron Carter as No. 3, Ray Small is No. 4, Lamaar Thomas is 5 and Taurian Washington 6.

Surprising to see TW so low, but I’d really like to see more of Lamaar Thomas.


  1. Can someone tell me if the game is nationally televixed? I’m not local, and I’m not seeing it in my listings. I have Dish Network. Thanks!

  2. Thanks. Can’t believe I’m gonna have to pay $24 to see this game. Thought this was what the BTN was for.
