Our own Walt Keys was on hand for the first day of Ohio State's fall camp this morning. Again, we only got the freshmen, but just look at all of those black stripes!

Be sure to go full-screen for the complete effect.

I'm sorry but how the heck do the coach's wear those long sleeve shirts in August? I can understand Urban Meyer wearing it because he lived in Florida so long. It was the same way for me when I moved back to Ohio from Texas but I mean eventually your blood starts to thicken or thin or whatever it is they say.

Actually, if the shirt is cotton and the sun is shining, it can be cooler.  Most fishermen in the Keys where white long sleeved shirts

It's only been in the 70's lately, and if they're synthetic type material, they pull heat away.
Blood doesn't change in the heat unless one is not replenishing fluids then it will thicken making the cardio system work harder leading to heat injuries or passing out. Eating, drinking and replacing electrolytes is all one needs to do.

And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!

it was probably only about 65° at 8:45 when practice started. stayed pretty nice all day. Maybe the best weather Ohio's ever seen in August...

Just seeing the freshmen on the field, and I am feeling like it's finally football.
Why am I not surprised that the photo of Coombs shows him yelling?

Be cool if these were captioned so we know who we're looking at. Also, where are the "moving day" photos this year. Those are always entertaining.

Nice to see Jeff Greene out there. I'm excited about having him!

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

1.) A question: why do some of them have a single black stripe and some have a triple black stripe?  Is there a different meaning to them?

2.) I am of course excited for all the freshmen, but for some reason I am really stoked to see what Jeff Greene can do!  He sure does look the part!  (Although, I think we have to wait a year if I remember correctly)


I think the "triple" black stripe are for the early enrollees maybe? The ones who played in the spring game but are still freshmen?

That was my initial though, but I don't believe wilson, eze, mitchell, or johnson were early enrollees, and they all had the triple

I'm a bit late on this, but the triple stripes are for running backs and quarterbacks, IIRC. 

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

Did anybody else notice that one of the new guys is wearing #7? I thought Jordan Hall was the only player wearing that number this year but obviously that is not the case.

This was being asked about yesterday I think it's Vonn Bell if memory serves me right. Seems they have him listed as número six but somebody was saying that's a typo. I could be making all this up. It was a way to relaxing day for me yesterday.

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction.

Walt Keys's picture

Correct, #7 is Vonn Bell

For some reason I am not seeing any pictures!?!? Just a space where they should be. It must be because I am using my phone, maybe? I'm so mad I could just burst. Oh crap, I just left a black stripe in my undies.
(The undies part is not true at all. I just wanted to get in on the black stripe conversation)
