The Urban Meyer era felt that much closer to officially kicking off Saturday as Ohio State held their annual spring game — their first under Meyer — in front of more than 81,000 Buckeye faithful.
QB Braxton Miller looked sharp running Meyer's new, fast-paced spread/zone-read/option offense as did RBs Carlos Hyde, Rod Smith, and Bri'onte Dunn, but the biggest surprise — thankfully — was the play of the receiving corp.
True freshman Michael Thomas, along with Corey "Philly" Brown, Chris Fields, and Devin Smith all looked ready to step up. Thomas posted a ridiculous first-ever-game effort en route to taking MVP honors with his 12 catch, 131 yard performance.
Just as a reference to how impressive Thomas' single-game stats were, last season, Jake Stoneburner, Smith, and Brown were tied for the team lead in receptions for the entire year with only 14 each.
