COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State did not need a running Terrelle Pryor on Saturday against the Indiana Hoosiers. In fact Pryor ran for a net of minus-19 yards due to being sacked three times by the IU defense. But Pryor took care of business in the air going 24-30 for a career high 334 yards and three touchdowns to propel the Buckeyes to an easy 38-10 win to give Jim Tressel his 100th win as head coach of the Buckeyes.
There was a collective gasp amongst the Ohio State nation a week ago in Champaign (Ill.) when Pryor went down and stayed down on the turf. Tressel proclaimed that Pryor was 100-percent going into the game and while Pryor may not have had his full arsenal of running weapons at his disposal he looked just fine with excellent pass protection from the line despite getting dropped three times.
Pryor admitted that he may have slowed himself down a little bit in preparation for what is always a tough game against Wisconsin, especially in its building next week at night But overall Pryor was happy with his performance but the perfectionist is already thinking of where he can get better each day.
We caught up with Pryor after the game during the victorious post game press conferences to get TP's thoughts on the game, Tressel's 100th win and looking forward to the trip to Camp Randall Stadium on Saturday night.
