Dontre Wilson and Mike Mitchell Lose Black Stripes

By Kyle Rowland on August 10, 2013 at 1:33p
The stripe is gone.

Two more black stripes disappeared today at Ohio State's eighth preseason practice: Dontre Wilson and Mike Mitchell. 

Wilson has received praise since he stepped foot on campus, while Mitchell has lurked in the shadows. Wilson's 'big brother' was Bri'onte Dunn, Mitchell's was Joe Burger.

Wilson and Mitchell are the second and third Buckeyes to have their stripes removed. Walk-on wide receiver Joe Ramstetter was first, on Wednesday.

I believe  Mike will see playing time early.  Hes a Zack Boren type  ,only faster.

Just imagine if Bollman was a defensive coach.  He would tell everyone else to block and the mike to tackle.  :-X

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Mike must have really stepped it up after Urbs put the LBs in check. Good to see because we need that depth. Dontre...did anybody not think he would lose his at some point...? lol

I will be surprised if Joey Bosa isn't in the next couple. I would find it hard to believe he hasn't done everything that is asked and then some. and work ethic, no way is that lacking.

I saw a UFO told me to have a goodyear!

I cannot wait to see these to play. It's going to be awesome watching them mature to their full potential. I hope these two earn many awards in years to come.
