I have always been a Buckeye fan but truly became a diehard after attending football camp under Earl Bruce back in the early 80's. My first car was a gray 1980 Cutlass with scarlet interior called the Woodymobile (bench front seat, an entire generation of kids have no idea how great a bench front seat is!). I grew up in Cincinnati (which should actually be part of Kentucky) where there are plenty of Buckeye faithful that are typically overshadowed by hillbillies, catholic school devotees, and cute little bearcat fans with massive inferiority complexes. I now live outside of Hamilton county where you see the Buckeyes flags fly 365 days a year. My favorite Buckeyes moments: a 3-way tie between throwing with Art as a sophmore in high school, watching Cie Grant toss Dorsey to the ground like a rag doll, and yelling like a madman as Ted Ginn returned the opening kickoff as I watched from 20 rows up in the 2006 NC game. Worst Buckeye moments: about 30 minutes after the Ted Ginn moment and watching JT fall on the sword for Gee and Smith.

They just need to either cover the helmet with leaves or move them to the left side!

I think I might have erred in my thinking :)

After watching it another dozen times he reaches for the linebacker but Spencer flies in like a lightning bolt and takes them out. He's moving so fast in the video it appears Price throws him aside. Either way, it is play that will be etched in every Buckeye fans' mind forever!

I think I've watched this play a thousand times and just noticed the other crucial block.........Billy Price pulls and just flings his right arm out to knock a Bama backer to the ground like swatting a fly.....

Go BUCKEYES!

Would love to see him stay and cement his Buckeye legacy but you can't blame the guy if he looks for another opportunity. Either way I hope 'Buckeye Nation' supports his decision.....at least until we have to kick his ass in a playoff game! I truly hopes it doesn;t come to that. I would love to see how this three headed monster plays out this fall.

Go BUCKEYES!

I believe Eric Kumerow was another QB/DB who changed positions for the BUCKEYES who ended up making a nice chunk of change. There are other examples in the NFL like Randle El, Cordell Stewart, now TP and others who either made a name and a paycheck or extended a career by moving from QB. Makes you wonder about what could have been with guys like Steve Bellisari and what could be with a guy like Braxton Miller if NFL QB is not in his future.

Add in McMillan and we have the best linebacker trio too. Or the second best linebacker duo if paired with anyone on our two deep.

Good luck TP. There's a spot for a freak athlete at wide receiver who can be an emergency QB in a roster numbers crunch.

GO BUCKEYES!
