Hey guys - was thinking about this the other day.....what if you could assemble a defense of former/current buckeyes, that had a certain "it factor" (i.e. good hitter, good nose for the ball, toughness/saltiness.....all qualities that don't necessarily show up in the stat sheet or 40 times).
An example of this would be:
- Andy Katzenmoyer was considered one of the best MLB's to play for OSU in the past 20 years, but for some reason I'd rather have Matt Wilhelm.
- The same could be said for Shawn Springs, but I'd rather have Antoine Winfield on my side.
So if you could assemble an all-time team of these type of players, and you had to win ONE game, or make a single goal-line stand, Who would you come up with?
Here are my picks below (keep in mind I am not old enough to have watched the OSU players pre-Cooper days).
- DE: John Simon
- DT: Tim Anderson
- DT: Kenny Peterson
- DE: Cam Heyward
- LB: Matt Wilhelm
- LB: AJ Hawk
- Star: Jermale Hines
- CB: Antoine Winfield
- CB: Malcolm Jenkins
- Safety: Mike Doss
- Safety: Donte Whitner
This defense would never lose, to anyone. Who else would make the two-deep?
