I was born in '68, and while my first memory of OSU football is Archie vs. UCLA, I really can't count what I saw at age 7 or 8. Therefore:

1) Eddie

2) Byars

3) Beanie when healthy.

I think of it in terms of where I would "officially visit" if I happened to be a stud recruit instead of a 45-year old weekend warrior. In no particular order, OSU, TX, USC, Oregon, ND.

His choice. For the sake of the team and fans he plays for, I wish him success.

What irritates me is when people choose a lifestyle, present it fully as their "identity", then label those who do not agree with them as intolerant/hateful/etc. 

Whether sexual, religious, political, or some combination of these things, I can pretty much do without the "agenda". It's up to me to love and accept people, not change them - but stereotyping me for disagreeing with your lifestyle choice is equal to me stereotyping you for making it.

 

Comment 24 Jan 2014

I was born in '68, so I can really only comment on what I remember. While I do recall being a wee lad and watching Archie run in the Rose Bowl, Keith Byars is really the first OSU RB I can pull out of my memory. Therefore, my list would be:

1. Eddie

2. Byars

3. Hyde and Beanie tied (Beanie more speed, Hyde more durable)

4. Mo C (amazingly gifted and electric, but lacked durability). Another season and he might be approaching Byars/George status.

I was also in the nosebleeds (Section 617), and was taken aback at how wide-open MSU's receivers were on many of their passing plays - even guys who didn't get the ball thrown their way. There were times when I found myself actually counting to make sure we had 11 defenders on the field.

We should be careful what we wish for in terms of a Vrabel or similar being promoted. Being a solid position coach does not necessarily equate to successfully scheming and calling an entire defense. As my WWII hero Grandpa used to say, not all good soldiers make good generals.
