The Ohio State football team won their game against Wisconsin Saturday, 31-24, but lost one of its leaders when senior safety Christian Bryant suffered a broken ankle.

 OSU coach Urban Meyer did not hide his emotional reaction to the injury during his postgame press conference. He slammed the podium with his hand at one point during his opening statement, and called Bryant’s injury the “hard part of the game.”

“That’s the hardest part of this whole job,” Meyer said. “That darn kid has done so much for our program, he’s come so far. Incredible leadership skills, and he’s going to be even more valuable outside of football. I love that guy.”

Bryant’s injury occurred on the Buckeyes’ second-to-last defensive play of the game, with less than a minute remaining in the game. He had to be helped off the field by two OSU trainers and was unable to place any weight on his injured ankle.

Bryant, who is in his third season as a starter on OSU’s defense, is one of the Buckeyes’ eight captains. He had 22 tackles, an interception and two pass breakups in OSU’s first five games.

Bryant was a second-team all-Big Ten selection in 2012. He was named to preseason watch lists for the Bronko Nagurski and Jim Thorpe awards.

  1. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth, right? the Democrats’ great accomplishment is producing the political equivalent of a Rodney King video, clearly demonstrating the lies of the right, the right Hilary Clinton correctly identified as a vast conspiracy. Confirm by examining Central District of California Cases, 01-4340, 03-9097, 08-5515, 10-5193, US Tax Court 12000-07L –though I think you want to view my US Tax Court Appeal to the 9th Circuit for a good account of their day to day assaults, a few month time slice indicative of a decade of assault, and, when it’s completed, 9th Circuit 11-56043.
    Typically operating through puppets–including puppets in the judiciary–the right wing has for decades been committing crimes and trying to classify them to cover them up, a move explicitly forbidden by the Code of Federal Regulations. They’ve killed several of my pets and routinely shoot energy weaponry at me and my pets, despite my calls to the police, the FBI, Congress, and despite my petitions in court.

  2. Mʏ partner and I ѕtumbled oνer here from a different weƄ ɑddress and thought I should check things out.
    I like ԝhɑt I see sο now i am following you.
    Look forward to going over yοur web paǥe for
    a second time.
