Is the 19th the last day to withdraw if you've already declared?

When is the last time we didn't lose a single junior to the draft?  Off the top of my head, I don't know that this has ever happened during the Tressel era.  Ironically, TatGate could actually end up making this team stronger next year, given that we likely would have lost at least one junior to the draft in the absence of The Sugar Bowl Pledge -- Boom and potentially Adams were candidates for possible early entry.

You could kind of say 2005 was the last time this happened. The reason I say that is because only two Buckeyes were taken and they were both seniors: Dustin Fox and Mike Nugent. 

For those splitting hairs, Mo Clarett was also taken in that draft and technically he was an early departure, right?  Though you could question whether or not he was a Buckeye at the time.

To the world who didn't trust Tressel, including both Jew (our own tOSU fans) and Gentile (SEC and other fanbases) I say:

Does that mean that Tressel is Jesus in your metaphor?

The original Bible was called Tressel ands Friends. So maybe he is....
