PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Can't let today go by without mentioning one of the greatest Buckeyes of all time. Lets talk about Beanie!
why is today beanie wells day?
28 days to football
Bet you can't say "Bert Bielma is a bumbling buffoon" five times fast.
gotcha...also could include jonathan wells. never gonna forget those 129 yds and 3 tds to begin Tress' dominance over ttun
That was a great day....Wells rolled.
"Success - it's what you do with what you got" - Woody Hayes
That was pretty fantastic performance by another great number 28
I love Beanie Wells. I have called my son Bean since he was born. We have matching #28 jerseys that we don during Hate week.
Did he ever sign with anyone or is he out of the league?
Buckeye For Life
He is currently a free agent.
He had a workout with Jacksonville in June.
Cincinnati and Pittsburgh looked at him in March.
"After taking a physical with the Steelers but leaving without a contract, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette cites a team source suggesting Wells has a "bad wheel."
Hopefully Beanie lands on a team this season. One of my favorite players to watch.

I hope he signs; he did pretty well when healthy.

Good call E2B. Speaking of the countdown, anyone heard from Andy Vance ... have not seen him on this weekend?

I was wondering the same. I'm sure he just had some more family things that are taking up his time.
Beanie could possibly find himself on a team sometime after most of the preseason.
Beanie hasn't had a great NFL career and didn't get that national championship but many need to know that in 2007, that team would have never even come close to being in the NCG if it wasn't for Beanie. He practically single handedly carried that team to the title game. Boeckman wasn't a very good QB. the defense and Beanie carried that team. Then Pryor came but Beanie was already starting to catch the injury bug.
but if you have any doubt how amazing Beanie was, just remember these three letters.
S O J
Hyde, Rod Smith and Brionte Dunn combined wouldn't compete against Beanie. He wasn't the fastest runner but could out run if needed. but he never had to out run anyone. When defenders tried to tackle him, they would hit the ground. They would get the Stiff arm Of Justice! He would pancake a defender with the SOJ about as much as Pace would pancake a linebacker. His punch was legendary! In fact, there should be a new statistic for running backs, how many stiff arms. Beanie would average 3 a game easily!
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
I appreciate Beanie also and agree about Hyde, but Smith, Dunn etc have not gotten their opportunity to shine. If Smith has overcome his fumble tendency, he may be one of the greats. There is a wealth of talent at RB this season.
AP was able to have a huge year after knee surgery. Maybe Beanie will be fortunate as well. Good luck Beanie, we will always be in your corner.
I love that stiff arm video - he was so good a that and as a defender there is nothing more frustrating than a stiff arm to the noggin.
I always thought Beanie was Heisman worthy. Too bad he had the injury bug. #28 is the only Buckeye jersey I own.
"It's just another case of there you are". ~ Doc (1918-2012)
If you ask me which former players do I miss the most, Beanie is on top of the list. I started following recruiting the year he was coming out of high school. Beanie was the crown jewel of the class and lived up to every expectation I had of him. For as long as I live, I will never forget the excitement I had when he broke off that TD against TTUN his freshman year.
