ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Ohio State football is used to success. In Jim Tressel’s 10 years as coach, he led the Buckeyes to eight BCS bowl game appearances and six consecutive Big Ten Championships. The 2011 season was different. OSU won just half of its regular season games, finishing with a 6-6 record and its first loss to archrival Michigan since 2003. It also dropped its final three games of the year. Senior wide receiver DeVier Posey, who was playing his second game of the year after serving two five-game suspensions, said the locker room felt “weird” after the loss. “We’ve never lost to Michigan,” Posey said, “It’s just an eerie feeling. You have a weird feeling in your stomach.” Despite the drop in success this season, the Buckeyes were reluctant to call the season a disappointment. “I think it’s a disappointment in terms of what the fans think and everything,” senior linebacker Tyler Moeller said. “Obviously you want to go out there and win every game. We fought and battled out there. Every game that we have lost, we were in them. We fought them. Sometimes in life that happens.” OSU has the minimum number of six wins to be eligible for a bowl game, but for the first time since 2004, OSU won’t be selected for a BCS bowl. Senior center Mike Brewster said dealing with all the losses has been difficult after having so much success in the past. “It’s hard,” Brewster said. “Just kind of shows you when you’re playing a team sport, decisions you make can affect your teammates.” OSU is still awaiting the decision as to whether or not they’ll be selected to play in a bowl game. Although six wins grants a team eligibility to participate in a bowl, it does not guarantee a team will be selected. Traditionally, OSU has had an advantage in the selection process because of the program’s reputation for traveling well to postseason games and drawing high TV ratings. One report from the Orlando Sentinel said representatives from the Gator Bowl are interested in choosing the Buckeyes to participate in the Jan. 2, bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., and pitting them against the Florida Gators. The hypothetical matchup would pit the team Urban Meyer coached from 2005-2010 (Florida) with the team Meyer will coach for the 2012 season (OSU). According to athletic director Gene Smith, current coach Luke Fickell will coach the bowl game and Meyer will no role in the team’s preparation. No matter what bowl game OSU is selected to or the coaching situation the team faces, junior defensive lineman John Simon said it won’t affect how his team will prepare. “We’re motivated,” Simon said. “We get excited for every game. We’ll make the corrections about this game tomorrow when we watch the tape and get back to work.” Moeller agreed. “Any game that we’re dealt, we’re going to work hard,” he said. “Just as hard as any other bowl game that we had. We’re going to try to win that.”

Ocean City’s downtown sidewalks are getting a makeover as part of a streetscape program, providing attractive and safer walkways by spring. By Maddy VitaleThose shifting, slanting, sinking sidewalks will soon be history along Ocean City’s downtown shopping district, replaced by more attractive, uniform walkways that officials say will not only enhance the look along Asbury Avenue, but also be safer.Hackney Concrete Inc. of Atlantic City has a $318,725 contract for improvements that are expected to be completed before Easter and the start of the spring shoulder season, Public Information Officer Doug Bergen said Monday.Workers are installing new brick crosswalks at the intersection of Eighth Street and Asbury Avenue to match the look of Ninth Street and Asbury Avenue. They are also removing the brick pavers that have become a tripping hazard and an increasing legal liability to the city, Bergen explained.From left; Cameron Palmer, visiting from Australia, and Carlie Egrie, of Ventnor, walk along Eighth Street over a portion of cracked, weathered sidewalks.Carlie Egrie, of Ventnor and Cameron Palmer, visiting from Australia, were walking along weathered and cracked sidewalks on Eighth Street on Monday afternoon.“It is definitely worth fixing the sidewalks,” Egrie said.“These sidewalks are definitely not ideal,” Palmer added.Work being done on the 800 Block of Asbury Avenue will be completed within the next couple weeks. The contractor will then move on to install brick crosswalks at 10th Street and Asbury Avenue and remove brick pavers on the 900 Block, Bergen said.In June, the City Council unanimously approved an ordinance to remove the brick pavers and tree grates and repair and install new sidewalks. The pavers and grates, which were put in about 20 years ago, were designed to enhance the downtown look. But over the years, the pavers and grates caused the sidewalks to shift and sink, creating the hazard.Second Ward Councilman Antwan L. McClellan said the project not only enhances the appearance of downtown, but the project will make it safer for the people walking on the sidewalks.“We have been talking about it for many years. The exciting part is that they are doing a great job,” McClellan said of the workers. “The businesses are excited about it. They wanted some uniformity. I think it will look very nice and vibrant.”McClellan continued, “More importantly, there were tripping accidents. We are happy to be able to get that squared away for our guests and downtown businesses.”Bergen said the long-range goal is to remove pavers from all of downtown Asbury Avenue. They will be replaced with poured concrete to match the rest of the sidewalk. Any commemorative bricks will be moved to the downtown courtyard between City Hall and Yianni’s Cafe, where other improvements are planned to create a downtown resting spot, Bergen said.Workers are busy installing new sidewalks and making repairs. Photo Credit: Jennifer BowmanRay Holman, a worker from Hackney Concrete, said the winter weather has slowed down the project.“We are hoping the weather cooperates more. It has been really tough,” Holman said. “It has to be above freezing to pour the concrete.”Despite some weather-related problems, he said both business owners and people shopping the downtown have been very understanding.“People are being really nice, especially the businesses,” Holman said. “I guess they are happy the work is getting done.”The streetscape project is expected to make the sidewalks uniform.
