Ginn Making The Most Out Of New Role

With the departure of Santonio Holmes to the NFL, Ted Ginn Jr. knew it was his time to step up as Ohio State's No. 1 wide receiver. On Saturday against Northern Illinois, Ginn got off to a great start with 123 receiving yards and two touchdowns. We caught up with Ginn following the game to get his thoughts on his new role, quarterback Troy Smith, the Buckeye offense as a whole and more.

There won't be any slow start for Ted Ginn Jr. this season. The Ohio State junior wide receiver had four receptions for 123 yards and two touchdowns in OSU's season-opening 35-12 win over Northern Illinois on Saturday. Ginn also returned two punts for a total of 44 yards, and two kickoffs for 25 yards.

The junior from Cleveland is enjoying his new role as OSU's No. 1 receiver. Last year, he took a backseat to Santonio Holmes.

"Well, it's a different time," Ginn said. "Last year, I played a role. This year, I am the role. So, it's just different. A whole new season."

Ginn knows he will be facing more double-teams this year, but he is up for the challenge of being the Buckeyes go-to receiver.

"Well yes," Ginn said. "I want to be that guy and I've been working hard to be that guy. I want to be a guy that can be counted on to make big plays and help this team win ballgames."

Against NIU, Ginn got the scoring underway with a five-yard touchdowns reception from quarterback Troy Smith. On OSU's next drive, Ginn caught a 58-yard touchdown bomb from Smith to give the Buckeyes a commanding 14-0 lead with 6:38 left in the first quarter.

"Well, the guy tried to jam me, I got a quick release, ball in the air, touchdown," Ginn said of the long TD reception. … "We came out and we knew that we had to execute our plays. We came out, executed our plays, played hard. On the bomb, I just got behind him."

Ginn says his eyes light up when he sees man-press coverage.

"I mean, yeah, because I know that the quarterback knows what we do against press coverage," he said. "For a guy to come out and try and press me… I mean, he played good, he's a good corner, but we just came out and made plays and had fun. We knew that Northern Illinois played a lot of press coverage and we knew we had to take advantage."

The Buckeyes showcased a versatile offense that could line up with a power running game, or spread it out with four receivers.

"We're just a great offense right now," Ginn said. "We've got three great backs, plus we've got five good receivers, as well as a great quarterback. And the offensive line is just blocking their butts off every play and we've just got to go out and make plays."

Ginn was asked if he could remember at time OSU jumped on an opponent so quickly with big scores.

"Probably Notre Dame," he said. "We came out and struck early. That's the only thing I can think of."

In other words, the Buckeyes picked up right where they left off last season.

"Yeah," Ginn said. "All summer and all spring, we concentrated on everything. We had to get better in all areas and we came out and showed a little bit of our talent."

But Ginn admits he was surprised to hang two quick scores on the board against a decent defense.

"Well yeah, that was shocking, come out and score two quick touchdowns back to back," he said. "That's always shocking. But you've got to be able to do that in the third quarter, the fourth quarter."

The NIU game also served as an excellent 2006 debut for Smith who was 18 of 25 passing for 297 yards and three touchdowns.

"Troy did great," Ginn said. "He spent a lot of time working in the offseason on film and watching a lot of games. Troy is going to come out and put you in positions that he wants you to be and it's up to you to get there and catch the ball."

Ginn was asked if he's going to give his good friend a hard time for under-throwing him a couple of times, including the TD bomb.

"Well it's hard for the quarterback to see everything that is going on," Ginn said. "He's got a lot of reads and he's got to go through a lot of progressions. It's up to the receiver to make sure he comes through and comes up with the catch. And that's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to be that receiver that can step up and make that big catch for us."

Ginn says he and Smith have an unspoken language on the field. They can just look at each other and know what the other is thinking in terms of how they are going to attack certain coverages.

"It just goes back to film study," Ginn said. "Being on the right page at the same time and doing things right all the time. I'm learning from him, he's learning from me and the film study helps a lot."

Ginn and Smith are dealing with the hype that comes along with being a candidate for the Heisman Trophy. But Ginn is taking everything in stride.

"Well I'm just out there playing," he said. "I'm just playing football. I'm just playing for my seniors, playing for my university, playing for the fans, my family and myself. The Heisman is going to take care of itself.

"Like I said, I'm playing for my seniors. This is their last road. It's not about Heisman hype, it's about my seniors, it's about my coaches and I'm just going out there to have fun."

Ginn got his personal campaign started off on the right foot, but he thinks he could have played better.

"I'd probably give myself a B-plus," he said. "It's not always great. There were a couple times on my blocking… there's a lot of things that you have to put into the game."

After the long, hard preseason camp, it was just nice for the Buckeyes to get out on the field and play a real game.

"It felt good to come out and play somebody else," Ginn said. "After a while you get tired of playing against your own guys. It's good to come out and see some different players and just have fun.

"I think the ‘Shoe gets us pretty amped. You come out and it's half crowded, then you come out again and it's all the way. That can blow your mind sometime."

Heading into the big week two showdown at Texas, Ginn was asked if he feels the No. 1 ranking for Ohio State is justified.

"Well, yeah," he said. "But it goes both ways. We've just got to come out and show our talent every time we take the field."
