Buckeyes offense comes to a halt

By Adam Rittenberg

NEW ORLEANS -- What a turnaround for the Ohio State offense.

After racking up 28 points and more than 300 yards in the first half, the Buckeyes' attack has been slowed to a halt after the break. This is the type of conservative play that drives Ohio State fans nuts about coach Jim Tressel.

Tressel made the right call to go for it on fourth-and-inches, but the overall play-calling has been far too conservative.
