COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State's football coaches met at 6 a.m. Thursday morning to select the teams for the 2012 LiFE Sports Spring Game, which will take place Saturday afternoon at Ohio Stadium beginning at 1:30 p.m. Scarlet head coach Tom Herman and Gray coach Luke Fickell led their respective staffs in choosing teams.
While no mention was made of which team had the first selection in the draft or who was the first overall pick, the two teams have interesting dynamics.
Braxton Miller will quarterback Herman's Scarlet team and he'll work behind an offensive line that includes four players - Jack Mewhort, Corey Linsley, Marcus Hall and Reid Fragel - who have worked with the first unit this spring. Johnathan Hankins, Ryan Shazier and Travis Howard are among the key Scarlet defenders.
John Simon leads Fickell's Gray team that features Etienne Sabino, Garrett Goebel and Bradley Roby on defense with Kenny Guiton at quarterback and offensive threats like Jordan Hall, Jake Stoneburner, Corey Brown and Devin Smith.
