PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Who is your favorite Buckeye to wear #12, and your favorite #12 of all time?
Michael Jenkins, John Stockton
Dane Sanzenbacher (Because I met him once at Little Bar and he was a cool dude)
Thierry Henry (yeah a soccer player)
Upvote for the Henry mention (Favorite player), but he wore 14 for Arsenal and Barcelona I believe. Edit: He wore 12 for France, so I'll put him down for 12 as well.
John Stockton..hands down...top 3 bball of all time for me:
Stockton. As a child, i molded my game after his. Couldn't miss a game. (me being short and all lol)
"Winter is coming" - Urban Meyer
You mean your favorite players or are you ranking them as far as best players?
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
Sanzenbacher hands down.
Michael Jenkins without a doubt! I was at the Purdue game in 2002 and will never forget the 4th down TD catch that saved the game and season! Nothing felt better than jumping around in celebration while surrounded by a sea of Boilermaker fans!
Jordan against the Magic in like 1990 or something like that. World B. Free when he was with the 76ers, Derek Harper and his 'Stache, Dwight Howard, Evan "the Villain" Turner, and don't forget about 'Nique in his season with the Celtics. Also there's Roger Staubach and Joe Willie "I Want to Kiss You" Namath.
Hands down Michael Jenkins. Sanzenbacher would be second, but kind of a distant second.
Cardale Jones, hands down.
But seriously I'll go with Jenkins. 4th down in OT of the championship with one of the biggest catches in OSU history, not to mention holy buckeye
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
I'd go w / Jenkins and Vlade Divac.
You can keep Sanzenbacher. I'll take Mike.
Michigan or not....The greatest QB in NFL history.
4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off
I like how the guy Jenkins beat on that play also wears #12.
Class of 2010.
Good Guy Boilers.
Has a shot at beating OSU and ruining national title chances.
Didn't he turn to catch the ball on the 12??
If i have to chose a #12 NFL QB...i'll chose Terry Bradshaw. My hate for the Steelers is no where close to my hate for Michigan
Nothing wrong with Brady, but the greatest QB in NFl history is Joe Montana. Don't care about the numbers, there has never been and may never again be a guy that you just 100% knew would march down the field for the win at the end of the game. And he never left enough time on the clock for guys like Eli to beat him.
I'll give Brady best #12 in the pros, though.
Leaving time has nothing to do with it, nor is Eli's success an indictment of Brady. It is a matter of preference really, and Montana's undefeated Super Bowl record speaks volumes to his legend. But I'll still take Brady as neither Super Bowl loss was really on him.
I'm not up for arguing one or the other as both guys are generation crossers-players who would succeed in any era of football. Those don't exist a lot at the QB position. It is defiantly a matter of preference, but I won't hold anything Eli and the Giants offense did (twice) against Brady.
I'll take Montana, you take Brady.
FWIW, my dad says Bart Starr.
Yep, and kids younger than me will say Aaron Rodgers. Its an endless debate. One of the many unresolved 'greatest X" conversations.
I say Bernie Kosar is the best QB ever. And yes, I am off my rocker.
If he hadn't been able to come in and relieve Aikman when he was injured for the last 3 games in '93, the Cowboys wouldn't have won the Super Bowl that season. It also shows what he was capable of doing when there was actually a line blocking for him.
He actually had some really good seasons in Cleveland too.
Yep, and still a hometown favorite. I am glad he got a ring though.
From what I've seen Kosar could fit the ball into any window on the field, but the dude ran like a drunk giraffe.
Yes, watching him scramble and then slide was a thing of beauty ugly awkwardness. But the guy wasn't afraid to scramble or do whatever it took to get some tough yardage.
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Personally, I thought Bernie was a 10!
(his O-Line? Not so much....)
His scrambling technique was uglier than a sexually active band geek.
Sounds a little too "horny" for me...
And everyone in unison went: Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Michael Jenkins and Joe Namath
Michael Jenkins & Roger Staubach
Sanzenbacher and Aaron Rodgers.
I wouldn't cheer for Michigan if they were playing the Taliban.
The reason this post is so funny for me is because I bought an Ohio State #12 jersey because I thought Justin Zwick was going to be the man.
Tim Fox - TOSU Defensive Back from 1972 - 1975.
John Brodie - 49ers QB
Mike Guess. Three-time All-B1G!
Joe Namath and Jenkins
Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.
Some recent #12 Buckeyes:
Buckeye - Jenkins
All Time - Alfonso Soriano
I like Jenkins but I'm surprise no one said the 12 days of Christmas even thought its not a player. Just an inside joke.
Ohio State's band SLAUGHTERED Michigan's band. If this were a football game, it would have been Florida State vs. Savannah State. - SB Nation following OSU vs. UM 2012
OSU - Ron Lewis
NFL - Roger "Dodger" Staubach
