That is pretty crazy.  I think the reason people forget how good Hyde was is he didn't have the marquee 60-70 yard TD runs that EzE is having now, but if you think about it, that makes Hyde's 7+ yards per carry that much more impressive.  Dude was a monster for us.

Comment 26 Oct 2015

I'm not saying I agree or disagree - both are great backs and it is difficult to pick one over the other in a definitive fashion.

But for the people on here who are swayed a bit by the recency effect:

Hyde averaged 7.3 yards per carry, 1521 yards total.

EzE averaged 6.9 yards per carry, 1871 yards total (however, Eze played in more games)

EzE averaged 6.8 yards per carry, 1130 yards so far.

Hyde was a BEAST.  Not just at short yardage but in gashing secondaries.  

Also, if I remember correctly he wasn't tackled for a loss until the Clemson game.  Which is insane.

I would like to see DJ cover the following topics in his next Skull Session: 


  • Baby seal clubbing
  • The Holocaust

.....sprinkled liberally with Warren Harding, our Lord and Savior.  Get the pitchforks out everybody!  Mob justice will be served!!!!

"seem to emanate from someone whose entire perception of reality is filtered through video games and the social media culture"

"Sports journalism should be about the subject matter, not the author."

Welcome to The Internet, circa 2013.  If you want to turn back the clock to old school sports journalism:

  1. Go pick up a hard copy of The Sporting News at your local Waldenbooks bookstore
  2. On your way home, stop at the local five and dime for a bag of Werther's Originals
  3. Sit in your leather reading chair
  4. PROFIT

This is what ruins the internet, and this is why we can't have good things: the level of fake outrage, and the pack mentality that follows.  

Most of the haters aren't really offended, they just want to be.

DJ, keep doing what you're doing.

DJ posts interesting content, and has an original voice.  Which is hard to find in the sea of mediocre world of college football journalism.  

The people on here who get offended by his posts need to step away from the keyboard and go outside for a bit, lest they fall into that rabbit hole of internet rage.

First, thank you for your service.  I mean this in no disrespectful way, but don't be like Walter Sobchak from the Big Lebowski.  DJ's joke was not "on" American servicemen.  The joke was "on" people who get too easily offended by what he writes.

It also blows my mind that our offensive coaching staff thought it was better to start Joe Bauserman over Braxton Miller.  

Even though Miller was just a freshman, it was clear early on that Bauserman had no ceiling whatsoever.  

Here are a couple of JB's lines from that season:

OSU at. Miami
-2/14 passing
-13 passing yards total
-0 TD's
-QB Rating 22.1

OSU at Nebraska
-1/10 passing
-13 passing yards total
-0 TD's
-1 Int
-QB Rating 0.90 (yes, you read that correctly....the rating is less than 1.00)

Please, Buckeye Fans,

Refrain from making comments about this girl, like why was she out that late, why did she go home with this player, and so forth.  There are already some comments of this ilk already posted.

It makes us look like ND fans.


Don't do it.

DON'T.  DO.  IT.

"I actually think Winfield's case the weakest of the four, but think he's still solidly on rushmore."

I have to disagree here - people have forgotten who good he was.  IIRC, Winfield weighed something like 180 pounds, but absolutely destroyed folks.  The best CB I have ever seen in run support, at any level of football.  If you rewatch the '97 Michigan game, he was a monster in that game, and neutralized Charles Woodson when they were matched up. 

I always loved Malcolm Jenkins, because he was a poor man's version of Antoine Winfield, if that makes sense.  Winfield is as solid as anybody on the mountain.

You are right on Jake - just like how Billy Price is supposed to be the John Simon 2.0.

Have I told you how much John Simon reminds me of a Mike Vrabel 2.0?
