    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State opened camp Sunday with immense pressure on some inexperienced players.The departure of 16 starters -- including nine juniors who bolted early for the NFL -- has left fifth-year coach Urban Meyer with the least experienced team hes had during his time in Columbus -- and one of the least experienced in the country.Look at the numbers: 46 of Ohio States 85 scholarship players are redshirt freshmen or true freshmen who have never played for the Buckeyes. Meyer and his staff have work to do and questions to answer.A redshirt freshman likely will replace NFL draft first-rounder Ezekiel Elliott at tailback, and the only receivers with some game experience are returning from injuries. There are starting spots just about everywhere else up for grabs.Im counting on about practice 12 (being) that line of demarcation where Ill tell you what kind of team well have, Meyer said. If we see some guys step up like we did in 14 and last year, then we have a chance to be special, because athleticism is not an issue. Chemistry, toughness, those kinds of things, I just dont know yet.Lucky for Meyer, one of his returning starters is quarterback J.T. Barrett, who has attained legend status at Ohio State even though hes only a junior. He came on in the wake of Braxton Millers injury in 2014 to lead the Buckeyes to an 11-1 record before breaking his ankle in the Michigan game and giving way to Cardale Jones, who led the team to a national championship. Last year he took over for Jones as the starter in the eighth game and led the Buckeyes to a 12-1 finish and No. 4 national ranking.Barrett said that despite the unsettled depth chart and many new faces, the first day of camp on a sunny, steamy afternoon felt familiar.I dont think it feels crazy different, he said. Even with the guys we had last year, it wasnt like the approach was any different. We still had the same type of install with our basic plays, making sure we get really good at those plays, so thats the same thing we did here. With the experience we had last year, it wasnt like there was a different approach. And we still have the same feel. Everybody came out there juiced up and ready to go. Theres just different numbers, different faces.Center Pat Elflein and right guard Billy Price return as starters on the offensive line, with Jamarco Jones already penciled in at left tackle. Raekwon McMillan is set at middle linebacker, and the same with Gareon Conley at one of the cornerback spots. Redshirt freshman Mike Weber, a four-star recruit from Detroit, is expected to start at tailback replacing Elliott, who was one of the greatest Buckeyes running backs of all time. Starting jobs just about everywhere else will have to be earned in the next few weeks.Ohio State began drills with freshmen and other newcomers on Sunday morning, and with veteran players battling through a workout in the afternoon heat. They will practice 28 more times before the opening game Sept. 3 against Bowling Green at Ohio Stadium.---Follow Mitch Stacy at http://www.twitter.com/mitchstacy Scarpe Balenciaga Outlet Online .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday.

The victory extended Charlottes unbeaten streak in pay-per-view singles to 15-0 -- the best mark ever recorded by a WWE superstar.Sundays match was much slower and methodical than their recent physical and violent meetings at Summer Slam and Hell in a Cell. While the PPG Paints Arena crowd was slow to heat up, Charlotte and Banks gave them plenty of reason to aas their largely technical affair heated up late.dddddddddddd.Charlotte recorded the first fall with 10 minutes, 46 seconds remaining when she pinned Banks after connecting with her Natural Selection finishing move off the top rope. Banks countered two minutes later to even things up with a sneaky roll-up for a three count.After Charlotte missed a moonsault minutes later, Banks took the lead with 6:40 remaining when she forced Charlotte to tap to her Banks Statement submission.The end of regulation saw Charlotte, who was trailing 2-1, focused exclusively on the left knee of Banks. She applied her Figure 8 leg lock in the center of the ring with exactly 2:00 to go, and forced Banks to dramatically tap out with just seconds to spare to even things up.After referee Chad Patton called for a sudden-death overtime period, Charlotte continued to attack Banks knee before the bell sounded to start the extra session.Banks initially had Charlotte trapped in a Banks Statement but Charlotte broke fee and reserved the move into a Figure 4 again, before arching her back to form the bridge of the Figure 8 to earn the submission win as Banks face become covered with blood following a blow to the face.The bout marked the 11th Iron Man match in WWE history and just the second female match. Banks and Bayley took part in a 30-minute Iron Man match at NXT Takeover: Respect in 2015.? ' ' '
