Ohio State vs. Navy: Three points

Redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett set no records, but he wound up 12 of 15 for 226 yards and two touchdowns, including an 80-yarder to Devin Smith that gave the Buckeyes the lead for good. Mainly, he kept his cool in his first start and seemed to improve.

'I'm not Braxton - I'm J.T': Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett isn't a superstar, and he knows the Buckeyes must win differently as a result

"The positives were that he managed the game, he was an unbelievable presence on the sideline, he was accurate to throw the ball down the field," offensive coordinator Tom Herman said. "I came away from it really pleased, understanding, though, that we aren't going to go where we want to go until we get the few (negatives) fixed."

Ohio State vs. Navy: The Bottom Line

As art goes, what Ohio State delivered in its opener was akin to the scribble-scrabble drawings that came home this week with many a kindergartner. It’s not the ugliest thing you’ve taped to your refrigerator, but you hope for better soon. Leaves are awarded on a zero-to-five basis.

John Kampf: J.T. Barrett shows he can handle quarterback for Ohio State Buckeyes

Ohio State fans can stop their sweating now. J.T. Barrett is going to be just fine. Ever since three-year starting quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right (throwing) shoulder a few weeks back, hands were wringing and sweat was developing on brows as people wondered how the fifth-ranked Buckeyes were going to survive without their two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year.

Ohio State sideline: Not a work of art, but it still counts

BALTIMORE — No specific container suits this one, except for the victory bin. Against Navy’s triple-option offense and its oddly set-up, aggressive defense, it was always going to be an awkward season opener for Ohio State and its abundance of new starters.

Why didn't Navy hit Ohio State over the top for a sneaky big pass play? Buckeyes Burning Question

Navy was just 2 of 4 passing for 20 yards. A triple option team, Navy never got a chance to hit Ohio State through the air when the Buckeyes weren't expecting it

MLS Match Recap: Montreal Impact 2 - Columbus Crew 0

 Ignacio Piatti’s work has started. The Impact’s new Designated Player notched his first two goals in MLS this Saturday night at Stade Saputo, leading Montreal to a 2-0 win over the in-form Columbus Crew.

Ohio State-Navy quarter-by-quarter analysis

Ohio State ended its first 15-minute period of the 2014 season with a slim lead, but it was anything but a bold opening for the Buckeyes. OSU under redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett wasn’t bad, but nor were things clicking on all cylinders.
