The Ohio State University has long had a rich history of having one of the best stables of running backs in the country. Carlos "El Guapo" Hyde may be one of the best we've had. I absolutely love watching this guy work. This past weekend against Northwestern, watching Carlos go off got me so psyched I just couldn't get enough.
So I started thinking about the best running back BEAST MODE plays in recent OSU history. Below you'll find a list of videos with some of the most down right filthy, straight nasty, BEAST MODE plays! Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg so I welcome everyone to join in, discuss, and add their favorite running back plays/moments.
1.) Maurice Clarrett strips Sean Taylor at the 2003 Fiesta Bowl- This may be my favorite of the bunch. During a pivotal point in the '03 BCS National Championship game, QB Craig Krenzel throws a pick to Sean Taylor. Watch as then freshman Maurice Clarrett demonstrates incredible hustle as he makes an unforgettable play...
2.) Maurice Clarett freshman year highlights- Boy, Clarrett could have been something really special. Was and is my favorite Buckeye running back.
3.) Chris "Beanie" Wells hurdles Illini defender- who said you have to run through the defense? an extraordinarily athletic play from Beanie Wells.
4.) Chris "Beanie" Wells stiff arm compilation- get off me punk! this one is awesome, great clips of Beanie straight owning defenses.
5.) Beanie Wells vs. LSU in BCS National Championship Game- Beanie shows them where they can shove that "SEC speed"
6.) Carlos "El Guapo" Hyde junior year highlights- pure unadulterated Beast Mode.
7.) Daniel "Boom" Herron highlights from the '10 season- BOOOOOOM
