Senior linebacker, Mike D’Andrea
On returning from his injury
“I’m not going to put a specific date on it, but I think a month would be good. I’m excited, I want to help the team. Hopefully, I’ll be able to go out and make a few plays.”

Senior linebacker, Anthony Schlegel
On Miami (Ohio)
“They (Miami) have a great inside team. What they do, they do well. We’re going to have to go out there and just go after it. They’re a tough team.”

Junior quarterback, Justin Zwick
On how the competition for playing time betters the team
“I just want to go out and play my game and get a `W.’ When you come to play at Ohio State you know you’re going to have people pushing you, wanting your spot. I think that helps everybody. It pushes them to be their best.”

Junior strong safety, Donte Whitner
On Miami (Ohio)
“They (Miami) have two of the best receivers in college football today. Just because they are in the MAC does not mean they are not a good team. They’re going to come out and play.”

Sophomore tailback, Antonio Pittman
On Ohio State’s opponents playing at Ohio State “I respect MAC schools. I respect all opponents we play. No matter how they are playing that season, when they come to Ohio State it’s a whole different ball game.”

Sophomore receiver, Ted Ginn Jr.
On the possibility of being double-teamed
“I think there will be double-teaming, but that just opens up somebody else. If they double-team me, it opens my other receiver for the play.”
