It's the season-opener: Who takes the first snap at running back?

No reason to pick anyone except EZE at this point

Signs point to EzE. I like the buzz Samuel has had, but there's no way he leads the pack as a freshman.

Sending out an SOS for Rod Smith, I still hold out hope he can find a way to step up.

We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

I went with Rod Smith as well. I really would like to see him go out on a high note.

I voted Zeke but I'm with you. Hoping Roderick can bounce back. Maybe have a Hyde type role as our power back. Not sure if he or Warren Ball will be that guy. I anticipate big things coming from #15 this season.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

I believe Urban said at this point that Eze would get the first start, but also Samuel would get on the field. It is really a surprise to me that OSU has all these weapons at running back and a true freshman may be the one who excels. I really feel for Rod Smith if he doesn't see the field often this year. If he had gone to IU, he may be in position to have his number retired this year. The one player that has shown me a lot is Warren Ball. Fast, big, and has the moves. My top three would be Eze, Ball, then Samuel. Sorry Rod.

I don't know that going any where else would have helped rod. He has had ball control issues throughout his career. If he corrects his fumbulitis he could have a phenomenal senior season, but I don't believe it has to do with his choice of osu.

EZE. Going into camp, I think he's the clear number one.

At this point there is no reason to think it would be anybody other than Elliot. I'm curious to who would take spell Elliot though. I assume it would be either Smith or Dunn, maybe even Ball.

First play will be diamond formation with Brax, Zeke, Samuel, Smith

Would really like to see what Dunn can do.

I think what is kinda sad is Ball and Dunn could be starting at Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota, Illinois or Penn St probably.

Didn't see Rod Jones so I went with EzE.
