Carlos Hyde Would Like to Remind You: He's the True Handsome One

By DJ Byrnes on May 16, 2014 at 1:37p

This is too awesome. 


[Carlos] Hyde took on the twitter name of @elguapo after it appeared on a story about him while he was at Ohio State. “I got it from an article a guy wrote about me out of Columbus (Ohio),” Hyde said. “It went from there. I changed all my social media names to ‘El Guapo.’”


“People can put their names to it,” Hyde said. “That’s what the Nebraska guy [Ameer Abdullah, @Ameerguapo] did.”

Hyde, however, wants to make it clear. “I am El Guapo,” he said. “The handsome one.”

That guy who christened El Guapo? Eleven Warriors' one and only Johnny Ginter in this poll. The nickname took on a life of its own and in March 2013, the Handsome One made it official by changing his Twitter handle

Viva El Guapo.

El Guapo Verdadero

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.

This is better than "Out of Hound" and "Lebron in Cleats" in the 11W folklore. It probably ranks #2 in Elevendub history, right behind that time my user name showed up in B-roll footage in the background of a 10TV news report about the site.

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.

This is funny every time it's posted, and still impressive. It is a shame he got himself suspended and taken out of the Heisman race.

...and Michigan still sucks.

I think the guy that got knocked to the ground got off easy there are still players from TTUN that are limping thanks to EL GUAPO!

Johnny knocked Hyde's nickname out of the park. Glad the big fella adopted it and I'm going to go ahead and assume the article I wrote 3/8/13 helped with that in some small way, because it pleases me greatly to do so.

11W is mighty.

Johnny deserves a prize for his contribution to Buckeye football lore.  

I vote we all pitch in and buy him a sweater.

Just as Pedro Martinez became 'El Duque', It would be awesome if Hyde became a household name in America as only 'El Guapo'.

One day I will valiantly become a political prisoner of 11W jail.

You're thinking of Orlando Hernandez who pitched for the Yankees. He was called 'El Duque'. Pedro was just called 'Petey' by Sox fans. Would be cool if 'El Guapo' becames synonymous with Carlos though
