7 pre-season AllAmericans. PLUS Gareon Conley. Plus a host of highly-talented young men who haven't had much (if any) playing time.

#65 is being driven backwards. Another way of looking at it is that the DL is doing a Bosa on the QB, but just using a bigger weapon than a RB. At least Hackenberg was looking for a receiver, though, while Sanchez should have been looking where he was "running."

Let him be the designated blitzer. On running plays - run at him, run at him, run at him. On pass plays, send the receiver who'll be the "hot read" into the space he vacates, and/or keep the RB in to pick him up. Blitzes wok to a large extent because they are a change up.

Back in the day (my day being the early 70s), pretty much all you needed to do was apply (if you were in-state; not so sure about out-of-state). It's harder now, as everyone knows.

I have no sources, and so can't speak with any certainty, but, after last year's class, I believe the staff sees value in guys who want to be at tOSU and are willing to compete (and if necessary wait) for playing time. I suspect that Markell may not be one of those players.  Good luck to him at NC State.  I, too, like the four guys we have coming in, both for the next season and beyond.

Why not when former Buckeye Jim Cleamons had a put-back bucket at the final buzzer in game 5 that helped the Cavaliers capture their first ever playoff series victory, over Baltimore, in 1976? Or the next week when Dick Snyder hit the game-winner to clinch that series? If we're looking back, we should look BACK.
