Ezekiel Elliott and Joey Bosa Lose Black Stripes

By Kyle Rowland on August 12, 2013 at 2:44p
One bad freshman.

Add Ezekiel Elliott and Joey Bosa to the growing list of freshmen who have lost their black stripes.

Ohio State is in the midst of nine practices in six days, including two-a-days today. Elliott and Bosa lost their stripes during Monday morning's practice, which means more stripes could come off later this evening. 

Joe Ramstetter, Mike Mitchell and Dontre Wilson also lost their stripes.

kinda funny how two texans lost theirs, and now two guys who seem to be pretty good friends, both on the same day.

Bet you can't say "Bert Bielma is a bumbling buffoon" five times fast.

Where are the Ohio guys ? besides the walk on Ramstetter, all have been from other states...I know it's early though. Hopefully Burrows or the like will be next


Considering how well Apple and Burrows played in the spring game these guys getting their black stripes taken away first speaks a lot. These guys must be busting their humps. Awesome!

Great jobs guys!  Keep on practicing hard!  Look forward to seeing you guys on the field where it is filling in, special teams or whatever it may be!
Go Bucks!

Does anyone else see the irony in the fact Terrelle Pryor now wears a silver helmet with a permanent black stripe?
