Eddie was well developed when he walked on campus. He looked like a body builder so I don't get the late bloomer.
From what I read he did both positions. At first he threw ok but according to the reporter it was painfully obvious he struggled on tougher throws but did very well as a receiver.
He was not the same after that foot injury but still great. What might have been. Type in 1984 Illinois at #8 Ohio State 3 of 4 at the 15 min mark is Byers losing his shoe running for a TD.
When I was younger I never stopped. From flag football to softball to basketball leagues. In between I was running 10k and long distance bike racing and all the while walking 10 to 12 miles a day delivering the mail. For a short time I owned the jump rope record for 1 hr but someone beat it before the guinness year was up. My friends thought I was crazy. Now I'm 59 with a hip and a knee replaced and too damned stubborn to get the other two done and I also need tommy john on my right shoulder but I keep pushing on because if you give in you are finished. Keep trudging
1970 was the revenge win for the "69" upset. It was a long year waiting for that game and 20-9 was just fine.
Ohio state football will always be my first passion and the NC in 68 and 02 highlighted all those years but remembering watching other sports moments has it's place also. Watching those John Wooden teams of UCLA's with Alcinder (Jabbar), Wicks and Rowe, Walton.. Mark Spits winning all those golds in swimming. Watching the Big Red machine beat the Yankees in the world series. Watching the Boston Celtics with Hondo Havlicek. Watching the US hockey team beat Russia. Watching Flo Jo run a 10.49 that still stands and breaking the WR winning in the 200m with a smile on her face. Watching Secretariat win the Triple Crown with three records that still stand today. Watching Mary Decker go to Russia and beat supposedly unbeatable Russian runners with a last gasp effort. Watching NC state take down slamma jamma and jimmy V running around the court looking for someone to hug. Watching Vasili Alexeyev lift more than any human ever lifted to win Gold in "76". (562lbs) I'm looking forward to more before my time is up.
I remember that OSU football team. If memory serves me right we lost 3 early. I was at the Wisky loss and left with a few minutes remaining when things looked hopeless and by the time I got to the car we were on their goal line before fumbling it away. They caught fire after that and played as good as any OSU football team. The running attack could not be stopped and the BYU coach commented it was the best team he had ever seen.
Looking at that schedule 7-5 might be a stretch. They would have to beat Minn and Indiana. I thought it was just Michigan bashing when some of the recent post put Hoke on the hot seat but this this might be it for him. Some of the players could transfer with no more barbecues. He definitely cHOKEd up there.
He needs to look at Hyde and what he accomplished last year. Future baby future.
Is Steve Miller the end that had such a good spring game out of nowhere? He gives his best.
From one who wouldn't stop and now has replacements you are making the right decision. Good luck
I still hate MU the most but playing PSU and Whisky has got me excited more lately. Now MSU as well.
I don't know how WR would sit with him. He recently said that Qb is not a position, it's my life and I'll do anything to get it.
Tough call since MSU always starts off with a few head scratchers before getting things together. If it were late in the year MSU for sure.
I was bush hogging around my hayfield about 15 years ago and caught a tree with my front end loader and bag that looked like an old deflated leather basketball fell right into my lap full of hornets. I have never seen anything so angry and defensive in my life.
Usually a double team on a good defensive lineman could fix a problem but what do you do with four?
By the time he got the NFL he was in the grasp of his personal problems so we will never know. He changed the culture from three yards and a cloud of dust and the fans were crazy for it at the time. I don't recall a bigger buzz in Columbus for a recruit except for Jerry Lucas. TP was pretty big but maybe not as much. I personally don't like pitting buckeye greats against each other because I love them all but Art has a spot high up the latter, maybe even 11 %.
My concern with Gibson is we end up like that team up north the last three or so years with a wide receiver playing QB, Highwire is right though about if that is what Urban wants.
Good point but it is hard to figure what's up and down with this kid. It does appear he has matured some lately.
Some of it has to do with who is throwing the ball to you. Chris Carter is my vote but I remember thinking at the time Gary Williams was different than receivers who came before. If we played teams like USC our receiver would get caught from behind but not Gary as he proved in the rose bowl. If we count other factors such as being in the right place at the right time, good football sense, good blocking, and etc., then Dane Sanzenbacher moves up the list.
More exposure to recruits. What a game that's going to be.
I never paid much attention to Martinez Ivey. He handled sweat pretty good in the video. Good effort.
A must get but it concerns me when he says things like the sec is arguably the best and I want to play against the best. Of course he could play for us against them in the playoff but It wasn't meant that way. Hope he has had a change of heart. Could be those kind of words came from whose reporters he was speaking to. GO BUCKS
Seems to be a big drop off after the our stadium. Can't beat the shoe and everything that goes on in it period.
