    • Ransom opened his meeting with the media by saying he’s excited to hit people other than his teammates for a change. “We’ve been banging against each other all camp, it’s been a long month. We can’t wait to play somebody else.”
    • On Indiana’s passing attack: “I think that their whole offense is challenging. They’ve got really wide splits, they’ve got a lot of dynamic players all over the field. Then they get the ball out really fast.”
    • “We’re just playing with a chip on our shoulder. A lot of people outside the Woody (Hayes Athletic Center) got a lot of stuff to say, so we’re just excited for a new challenge and excited to go play.
    • On Malik Hartford: “(He’s) really mature, man. He came in here, handled himself really well, always asked a lot of questions. Really smart. I think that’s what really separates him so early. I’m excited. He learned really quickly and makes a lot of plays on the ball.”
    • Ransom pointed out that, since he’s been at Ohio State, it’s his first time running the same scheme two years in a row. He feels that combined with veteran presence and leadership on the defense has upped everyone’s comfort level on defense.
    • On his biggest focus this offseason: “Stepping into a leadership role, becoming a better leader, then helping bring young guys along like Malik. Then for me, this was the first offseason I really got to lift weights and work on my body, work on myself, work on my nutrition.”
    • Ransom switched from jersey No. 12 to No. 8 this offseason, a change he’d be waiting years to make, he said. “I’ve been wanting eight since I got here, that was my number in high school. The story behind that is, my dad wore No. 4, and I always joked around saying I’d be twice as good as he was.”

    The most serious injury of the night for a Buckeye appeared to happen in the fourth quarter when safety Lathan Ransom limped off the field with an apparent non-contact leg injury. Ransom was only putting pressure on one leg as he was helped into Ohio State’s medical tent, and the injury was significant enough that Ransom was carted back to the locker room. Ransom ultimately returned to the sideline for the end of the game, but did not return to action.

    Day said after the game that he had not yet received an update on Ransom’s status.

    “I'm not even sure exactly how it all shook out there,” Day said. “It was all kinds of chaotic.”
