Jody Victor: The big weekend is here. Saturday, September 3rd OSU versus Miami at noon. Make sure your televisions are turned to ABC. Steve Victor, Joe Victor and I will all be glued to the game. We are fired up and can’t wait. With the weather cooling off and the sun going down earlier it just feels like football season!

Hawk and center Nick Mangold, both of Centerville, Ohio, along with safety Nate Salley of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and guard Rob Sims of Macedonia, Ohio, were selected by of vote of both coaches and players. Tressel said the four players, all seniors, were recognized for their leadership abilities. “These young men realize the responsibilities of being a captain at Ohio State,” Tressel said. “They have been great leaders throughout the summer and in camp. I am not surprised at their selection.”
