Short answer:   No.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

Craft is definitely one of my all-time favorite Buckeyes in any sport.
Also, my man-crush for Craft > my refusal to click on espn content.

And love that he'll be 100% again for the upcoming season because we are definitely going to need him to continue to set the tone for us defensively and pick up his game a little more offensively as well...

The lack of the word "moxie" in describing Craft is disappointing.

It shouldn't disappoint you. ESPN is contractually bound to only use that word when talking about Matt McGloin. In related news, Penn State is not going to be serving water on the sidelines to their QB this season. What will Matt be drinking? Like you had to ask...

I should have known.  BTW, I was at the PSU game that year and when we got back to my friends house we watched it on tape.  The word "moxie" was used 7 times. Of course this was mostly in the first half. Not so much the second when evil Tressel fired up the team and they hung 24 pts. on poor Mr. Moxie.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – If somebody in the Ohio State locker room had the foresight to turn on the video camera at halftime, Jim Tressel would be an Internet sensation.
“It’d be the No. 1 video on YouTube,” Devon Torrence said of the halftime speech delivered by Tressel, usually characterized as reserved and even dry.
“You could see it in his eyes, he was fired up. I can’t explain it. It was something you had to be there to see. I’ve never seen in it the four years I’ve been here.”
Torrence said the silence in the locker room was deafening, quiet enough that the drop of a pin could be heard. The room fell silent and players sat completely still when Tressel took the floor. The little noise that could be heard as Tressel sized up his squad through his trademark glasses was the ruffling of papers, which were evidence of just how poorly the Buckeyes played in the first half.
“Normally coach Tressel, he’s a pretty passive, relaxed, calm guy. He never yells in practice,” Torrence said. “When he came in that locker room, I’ve seen something in him I’ve never seen.”
Would have loved to been a fly on the wall

I wonder if Bobby DiGeronimo was hiding in a locker THAT time? (Too soon?)

Even a mosquito on the wall. Anything I could be on the wall to have heard that!

Or 'scrappy'. No mention of him being a 'scrappy' player who 'outhustles' opponents.

I'm just going to assume there was some rubick's cube mentioning.
