Ohio State-Indiana 2013 GIF recap

Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

Carlos Hyde became the first 1,000 yard tailback ever to play for Urban Meyer, Kenny G says goodbye, and the Buckeyes move to 23-0 under Urbz.

Funny how 23-0 feels so much better than 22-0, eh? Behind yet another hot start (mostly in the form of the hot hand from Braxton Miller and Carlos Hyde), Ohio State jumped out to a 28-0 half time lead before ultimately prevailing over the Hoosiers. Miller finished his time in the game 11/17 for 160 yards 2 TDS to just 1 INT while also rushing the ball 13 times for 144 yards and 2 TDs.

Perhaps the highlight of the first half was senior running back Carlos Hyde becoming the first 1,000 yard tailback in Urban Meyer's impressive coaching career. Achieving the feat in front of the home crowd had to be a special treat for the fans and Hyde alike, but the accomplishment was made particularly impressive given that Hyde missed the first four games of the season following a suspension. He's finish will over a 100 yards rushing and 2 TDs.

Indiana's high octane offense entered the weekend ranked 12th in the country in the F/+ rankings, but was held without points until two late garbage touchdowns. Ryan Shazier was particularly a beast finishing with a career high 20 tackles, five tackles for a loss, and a sack to go along with it.

Of course next for the Buckeyes is much hated rival Michigan, but before we get there, let's relive the Indiana game that was in GIFs.

Even though it was pretty apparent Miller wasn't running at full speed, he still has that intangible ability that can make you say wow at a moment's notice. Carlos Hyde finished the job for the Buckeyes a few plays later to make it 7-0 Buckeyes.

Urban Meyer's never had a thousand yard rusher at tailback. That's going to change – and more likely than not sooner rather than later. Carlos Hyde takes this handoff and takes it to the end zone, giving the Buckeyes a one touchdown lead early in their mid-afternoon matchup with Indiana.

Though the rules specify a 15-yard spot foul when unnecessarily diving (or in this case, flipping) into the end zone with the touchdown being waved off, Braxton Miller goes ahead and takes advantage of generous officials as he leaps into the end zone to help give Ohio State a 14-0 lead.

In a formation the Ohio State coaches call "Jazzy", senior backup quarterback (and multiple time OSU hero) Kenny Guiton drew the snap, handed the ball off to starter Braxton Miller who capped things by flipping into the end zone. Again.

Things are getting out of hand in the Horseshoe. With a touchdown making the margin 21-0 just a few plays later, the Buckeyes are in total control against their Leader division foes, the Indiana Hoosiers. Here, Bradley Roby takes matters into his own hands to give the Buckeyes tremendous field position for the easy 6.

And there it is. Ohio State's outstanding senior tailback Carlos Hyde becomes the first running back in Urban Meyer's great head coaching career to rush for 1,000 yards. Now, is 2,000 asking too much?

Earlier on the afternoon, Hyde asserted himself by becoming the first 1,000 yard tailback ever to suit up for an Urban Meyer coached football team. Here, Hyde gets into the end zone the way he's known to, but then celebrates with a slight homage to the Houston Texans' Arian Foster.

The Ohio State Marching Band has become internationally known for their outstanding, creative and of late, web savvy halftime shows. From video games to cinema, the Buckeyes have used iPads to help plan and execute elaborate shows, much to the amusement of the internet at large. Check out their latest, in which they honor Gettysburg, Lincoln, and more.

As we stated earlier, Braxton Miller physically doesn't necessarily look 100% just quite yet after missing two games and change earlier in the season, but we're not sure it matters. Here, Miller continues to showcase why he's a living nightmare for opposing defensive coordinators and players alike.

Much like Wisconsin's gotten a lot of mileage out of jet sweeps with talented halfback Melvin Gordon, the Buckeyes' offensive brain trust couldn't see a good reason not to work Dontre Wilson into an already 28-0 OSU-Indiana game in a similar fashion. Wilson takes the ball, scurries to the outside, and it's 34-0, just like that.

No Ohio State wide receiver had any receiving yards heading into the 10 minute mark of the 4th quarter – and then this happened. Buckeyes junior Devin Smith hauled in a bomb from Braxton Miller on a post route, then literally ran into the post. Not a bad afternoon for the Buckeyes as they lead, 42-0.

A legend forever in Columbus, career backup (but ultimate emergency QB) Kenny Guiton entered his final home game to a raucous reception. He in turn blew kisses to the home crowd and clapped loudly. Unfortunately the ensuing possession didn't go as desired, but Kenny G will remain near and dear to OSU fans' hearts pretty much forever.

We already knew Urban Meyer was the best, but man, it's hard to imagine why (winning and bravado), so many dislike him. Check out this awesome handshake with Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller.

And for good measure, because the matchup's set, get ready for plenty of this during the next two weeks:
