    Colorado to play an unranked team in Columbus
    For the first time in seven years, the Ohio State Buckeyes are unranked.
    Ohio State had been in every poll since November, 2004, a span of 103 weeks (Colorado’s best run, from 1989-97, went for 143 weeks), but after a 24-6 setback against Miami, the 17th-ranked Buckeyes were dropped from the Associated Press poll.
    For Ohio State, it’s been a year of losses and embarrassments stemming from NCAA violations committed by players who traded memorabilia for tattoos.
    Coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign on Memorial Day, star quarterback Terrelle Pryor left school early for the NFL with further NCAA scrutiny looming and several key players serving NCAA suspensions.
    The loss of Pryor, who would have been a senior, has left Ohio State (2-1) with huge problems at quarterback, and not until the sixth game of the season will the Buckeyes get three other key offensive players back in the lineup — running back Dann Herron, receiver DeVier Posey and tackle Mike Adams.
    The Buckeyes are 95th in the nation in passing offense (172.3 yards per game) and 85th in total offense (342 ypg).
    Those offensive issues were exposed against Miami. Ohio State quarterbacks Joe Bauserman and Braxton*Miller completed only four passes for 35 yards.
    “I’m kind of shocked,” Ohio State’s Carlos Hyde said after the game in Miami. “I wasn’t expecting to lose to these guys.”
