    I honestly can't remember anyone punting like that in a game. A season with 5 punts inside the 5 and a great weapon sure but 1 game?

    Chrisman's punts give Ohio State extra kick in win at MSU


    On a day that would have made Grantland Rice envious — Spartan Stadium outlined against a blue-gray November sky — Drue Chrisman rode again.

    After Ohio State went three-and-out on its first possession of the game, Chrisman, an All-Big Ten punter, produced one of the worst punts seen by the 74,663 people in attendance.

    The ball caromed off the side of Chrisman’s foot into the seventh row behind the Michigan State bench.

    Three hours later, Chrisman was interviewed on the field by Fox sideline reporter Jenny Taft after OSU’s 26-6 win against No. 18 Michigan State.

    In the span of eight punts, Chrisman went from the accused to instant celebrity.

    “I almost benched him, but we don’t have anyone else,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said, smiling at Chrisman, who was standing to his right.

    “I think after you have a punt like that — I don’t know where it ranks with the worst punts in Ohio State history, but it was definitely my worst punt — I was just like, ‘I have to ball out,’” Chrisman said.

    All he did was secure nine points for the Buckeyes in one of the best performances by an OSU punter. In the second half, Chrisman had five punts downed inside the 6-yard line. Michigan State, despite trailing, took an intentional safety after one, then later, an MSU fumble one play after a Chrisman punt was recovered by Ohio State for a touchdown.

    Both plays were direct results of poor field position created by Chrisman and gunners Terry McLaurin and Johnnie Dixon.

    “That’s part of our plan to win,” McLaurin said. “Coach Meyer preaches it. It’s called the gospel. There’s a 3 percent chance of a team scoring when they start inside their own 5. We believe in that.

    “I always tell the younger guys, if you want a spot on this team and grab some respect, especially from coach Meyer, special teams is the way to do it.”

    The weather conditions and a combination of sloppy offense, stout defense, and conservative playcalling led to 17 combined punts. Chrisman’s 340 yards punting were only seven fewer than the OSU offense produced all game. Six of his punts finished inside the 20.

    Michigan State’s average starting field position was its own 20. In the second half, the Spartans had nine possessions, starting at their own 5, 6, 3, 1, 2, 25, 25, 13, and 7. They had one only drive of more than 50 yards.
