It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

Thomas Worthington varsity basketball assistant coach Jake Guthrie was in the middle of watching an NCAA Tournament game, when he experienced his own moment of madness.

The folks from the famous Guinness Book called him to confirm that he would be able to try for the new mark in underhanded half-court shots.

“Basically, I have always wanted to attempt to break a world record,” Guthrie said, “As a basketball coach… I always tried trick shots during practice so I figured what better record?”

While shooting for a world record would be more than enough for most people, it was not enough for Guthrie. He wanted to use his moment to draw attention to an issue he thought was important: hunger.

Therefore, regardless of the outcome of his attempt, Guthrie will be donating 1,000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the homeless.

He’s hoping to find someone who will match his generosity. Even without a corporate sponsor, though, Guthrie feels his effort will make a difference.

“Hopefully my players and students will see what I am doing and feel inspired to do something kind. Just my small attempt to make a ripple to make the world a better place.”

Details have yet to be solidified, but Guthrie right now aims to try for the record during the halftime of the Driven Foundation’s charity basketball game at Thomas Worthington on April 18th. So if you needed one more reason to come out and watch former Buckeye football players Roy Hall, Simon Fraser, Stanley Jackson, and more hoop it up, there you have it.

Admission is only $5, and tip time is 7 p.m. You’ll be able to get autographs at the game.

What If?

Today we decided to extrapolate out the numbers of JT Barrett and Cardale Jones to see what stats they would have posted if they had started all 15 games.

It’s an interesting thought experiment, but admittedly, it probably tells you more about the games they did play in than what would have actually happened if they had been under center all year.

Without further adieu…

JT Barrett: 254/354 passing for 3,543 yards, 43 touchdowns and 13 picks
Cardale Jones: 230/375 passing for 3,710 yards, 25 touchdowns and 10 picks

Notes-

  • Cardale’s 3,710 yards would set a new Ohio State record, breaking Joe Germaine’s mark by 380.
  • Cardale’s 230 completions would tie Germaine for the most in a season…but JT’s hypothetical 254 would pass them both.
  • Barrett’s 34 touchdowns was already good for the school’s single-season best, but if he had continued to play and registered 43, he would only be 14 shy of Bobby Hoying’s career record.

Not Playing Around

This is called owning your mistake.

And then, the Ohio State quarterback learned he’d made a mistake by saying “nothing is more important then” rather than, “more important than.” It was obvious that maybe one or two of his followers had pointed out the snafu, if not the irony.

Pointing out grammar errors might not get you blocked by the signal caller. There is one thing that undoubtedly will, however.

OSU Releases Details on Student Appreciation Day

Plans set for 4th Student Appreciation Day practice

Fastest Buckeye contest will include Ezekiel Elliott and alums

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State Buckeyes will hold their fourth annual Student Appreciation Day practice at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center Saturday, April 11 starting at 11 a.m. Busses will transport students from three main campus locations – the Ohio Union, Archer House and the RPAC – beginning at 9:45 a.m. and will continue running between those locations and the Woody until 2:30 p.m.

Doors at the Woody will open at 10 a.m. for Ohio State students with a valid BuckID. Additional parking will be in the Gray Lots.

Efforts are ongoing to ensure this year’s Student Appreciation Day is as fun and entertaining as the previous days, which have drawn several thousand students or more into the Woody. Students will be able to interact with their football-playing peers and coaches after practice and during practice there will be food trucks on site, a dee-jay, Brutus Buckeye and the cheerleaders.

Two photo stations will be set up: one where students can have their picture taken with the College Football Playoff national championship trophy and one that will have a band member’s sousaphone for an iconic “dotting-of-the-I” photo.

There also will be three competitions for any student attending the practice to take part in: a push-up contest; a leg-lifts contests; and a two-person wheel burrow racing.

Fastest Buckeye competition

These events are in addition to the 2nd “fastest Buckeye competition.” A preliminary round of sprints will take place Monday, April 6, at 5 p.m. at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. The semifinals will be held during the Student Appreciation Day practice and those advancing to the finals will compete April 18 during the spring game against current Buckeyes, including Ezekiel Elliott, and a selection of Buckeye alums.

Free spring game seats for students

Tickets for the 2015 LifeSports Spring Game, presented by Nationwide, set for April 18 at 1:30 p.m., are on sale now. General admission prices are just $5. A limited number of reserved club seats are available for $15. Tickets can be purchased online at http://go.osu.edu/Buy2015SpringGameTix.

Children ages 6 and under are free in the general admission sections only (everyone in club seating areas will be required to have a ticket). Current OSU students get in free with a valid OSU ID, and should enter the stadium through Gate 26.
