I was in school with Paul Warfield. Watched him run in HS. Saw him in the dorm after a college game, laid out on his bed, black and blue and beat UP.
With my own eyes, Rex Kern (was at '69 Rose Bowl), Archie Griffin (missed him because I served overseas for 4 years), Art Schlichter (worked in Detroit when he beat UM) and the guy who made my eyes widest, Maurice Clarett. Troy Smith and Ginn were simply amazing.
But the best player by far was the entire team this year. C'mon. Next Man Up was that team of men ready to step UP.
God, being a Buckeye has never ever been better. I once asked Charlie Yates, who was in hs 90's, grew up with Bobby Jones, and had backed GaTech all of his life what in his opinion was the best time in the hostory of GaTech, he thought for a minute and whispered, "right now". Well, same for the Buckeyes.........
