Is Braxton still in the Heisman race? Most of last year's winner hype was done in the last half of the season.  Braxton is coming up with the impressive numbers in all QB phases of the game!!

I think missing two games, and playing terribly against Northwestern took him out of it.

Naw I think Brax is pretty much out of the race...

I don't know about the end of time, but i'd like to see what it is right now.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

The Buckeyes are owning these weekly conference awards this year!

Hmmmm, I thought Dontre's career-long kickoff return was the 51-yarder he had in his first career game against Buffalo?

With his speed and agility, I've taken to calling Wilson "waterbug"

Dontre Wilson got to the endzone practically untouched, but that is a credit to his speed AND how our receivers continue block down field as well. I'd be curious to see how many touchdowns have been scored this year as a direct result of down field blocking. You could chalk Hyde's balancing act/touchdown leap up to blocking. Really good discipline.

Totally agree.  Love to see the receivers taking pride in downfield blocking.

Who was the PoW on D?  Noah Spence made a hell of a case, who beat him out?

I can't believe no one has mentioned (haven't seen if they did) his spin move on the kickoff. He didn't even break stride.

We're cleaning up on the weekly offensive B1G awards, I like it!
