Jim Tressel said he has not seen anything different in Brandon Saine during the last three games of the season. Ohio State fans might beg to differ.

As the Buckeyes blew out Marshall on Sept. 2, the senior running back carried the ball nine times for 103 yards and two scores. Since then, the senior captain has found decidedly tougher sledding. In victories against Miami (Fla.), Ohio and Eastern Michigan, Saine has amassed 66 yards on 27 carries
