Overheard at Ohio State: New Mexico State

The tone of the conversations on the Ohio State football beat was much different this week after the offense performed well in a blowout of Minnesota. With New Mexico State headed to town, Buckeye coaches and players spoke about keeping their focus, keeping the offense on the upswing and much more.

Every week during the season on the Ohio State football beat, we get more information than we could ever put into a story on BuckeyeSports.com, and in this weekly feature I try to touch on as many topics as possible by sharing everything that made its way into my reporter's notebook. You might find tidbits you missed or more details about something else you saw just a bit of during the week as the Buckeyes prepared to play host to New Mexico State.

This week the offense's bounce-back performance against Minnesota was a hot topic, as was the health of the Buckeyes and their state of mind with a tough November slate on the horizon.

Getting their say were players Terrelle Pryor, Bryant Browning, Jake Ballard and Chimdi Chekwa along with assistant coaches Jim Heacock, John Peterson and Nick Siciliano, not to mention the head coach himself, Jim Tressel.

Find out what they had to say in the newest post about Ohio State football in the Cus Words Blog.
