HOMAGE Rah Rags for the Taking

We typically reserve contests for the bigger games on the calendar (no offense Mr. Solich), but when Ryan at Homage offered up a couple of his new Rah Rags (with a portion of each going to The Stefanie Spielman Fund), we thought we'd make an exception.  We have three to give away and we're going to mix things up a bit this time. With a late night posting, call it an effort to reward our late night readers, but the commenter that correctly picks the first Buckeye to score a touchdown Saturday will win one of the Rah Rags.

One player pick per comment/entry, please, and then we'll hand out the 2nd and 3rd Rah Rag to the commenter picking the Buckeye that scores the teams 2nd and 3rd touchdown (we're getting a bit presumptuous here, but three players scoring Saturday is probably a safe bet).  It's a departure from our typical score contest, so just to reiterate, you're just picking one player, not three.

The usual fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible -- first come, first serve.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck, and if you happen to live in town, be sure to check out Homage's new retail store.  Chris stopped by last week and tried to move in.

Ok, since I got beat by one freakin' minute by JVandy, I'll go with Jaamal Berry on the kickoff return.

Devin Barclay... also, will the extra point count as the second score?!  I know, probably stretching it there...

Jason Priestas's picture

If Barclay scores Ohio State's first touchdown, we'll make sure you get two Rah Rags.

Kurt's picture

LOL...I got excited and didn't read that you explicitly wrote score as in a touchdown, knowing Tress I figured we'd open the scoring with a field goal.

Tyler Moeller...my other options were taken!

buckeyedude's picture

Ahhhh! Strategic choice. But what are his grades like, and is he eligible?

how can we have had this many comments without my obvious first pick being selected?

Heyward will score first. Though on Defense or Offense I can't say. It would not surprise me to see him in as a TE after seeing his moves and sticky fingers on the ball!

Dahood55's picture

Dang it. I was SO close!

Dahood55's picture

I guess I'll go with Grant Schwartz. May the SCHWARTZ be with you!

BTwrestle04's picture

I have a feeling that you would have gotten it had you not typed "May the SCHWARTZ be with you" lmao

well i will go with TP for the 3rd td (if i read correctly someone has him for the 2nd td but not the 3rd?)

Sorry, the instructions were a bit confusing. Once a player is off the board, he's off the board, so TP would be ineligible.  Still some guys on offense and a few good guys on defense to choose from.

osujake9's picture

not too many to choose from here but I guess I'll take Simon

Boo Jackson. [There wasn't anyone left.]

Dammit, someone picked him...

 

Soloman Thomas ?!?

VanDownByTheRiver's picture

Off Topic but did anyone hear that OSU offered Brionte Dunn from Canton GlenOak today?...I went to GlenOak,and heard that rumour today...

JaxBuck2010's picture

I will say Dorian Bell picks up the fumble on the kickoff and takes it to the house !!!

buckeyejonross's picture

Ty Williams, lose that redshirt!

Not a lot of options left. T Wash?

BTwrestle04's picture

I took TWash kinda early. Wishful thinking at best, but looked like the best option at that point.

Carlos Hyde?

bdegroff's picture

I'm taking Heyward with a sack, FF, FR, and returning it for a TD.

I actually got him a long time ago.

Ah, I see that now, way to not check before you post the name.

I am going with Mike Adams on a tackle eligible play!  Has Tressel ever tried that?

NolaBuck's picture

I will go with John Simon to eat the football and then run in for 6. Or he might just hop on a fumble in the endzone.

btalbert25's picture

if he eats the football does he have to pass it for it to be considered a TD?  If so, it could be a long game.

Doc's picture

Has Dane Sanzenbacher been taken if not dibs!

 

Sorry, I went back and looked he's gone.

Dexter Larimore!  He'll fall on a ball in the endzone, you'll see.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I can't go through and read all of these.  I'll take the double nickel fillin' in and reppin' fine by scoring on a pick 6 or a returning a fumble recovery.  Tomorrow is the first game I won't watch live that I can ever remember.
