Charlie's math assumes that the defense never has to keep a player back to watch a non athletic QB. Even a non athletic QB can pick up easy yards with a good O line and no defensive player committed to keeping him from the run. Andrew Luck may argue with Charlie's logic..
Enough with the B1G hate already DJ. Enough is enough. The B1G has tOSU and Sparty. Both of those teams can play with any of the top two teams from any conference in the country, so STFU already. How is that for salty?
This is why I forgo vacation and purchase season tickets. 7 days on the beach or 7 glorious Saturdays in the Best Stadium, at the Best School, watching the Best Damn Band in The Land and the Best Damn Team in America. Easy choice.
One of my favorite Buckeyes of all time and for ALL the right reasons.
I think most of us who are reasonable can agree that players should receive more compensation than they currently do. They should have no reason to accept a $500 handshake while the university sells their image. That said, we all know this isn't a battle between reasonable people. We have the institutions who want the status quo, and players rights lawyers who want the the entire pie. I hope reason wins in the end, I doubt it will.
Agreed, as someone who benched over 300 as a sophomore in HS and never played a down of college ball, I couldn't care less about his bench press. As long as he dominates his opponent, I don't care what he benches.
Drayton and Meyer will decide who is more "deserving".
I'm really not comfortable with this who "spin the bag and cornhole" discussion.....
Anyone know where his oildest is committed to play college ball?

You Sir, have lost your mind...
May be your best Skully yet DJ. Thanks for all the boxing and wrestling links, I wasted at least an hour.......
I grew up watching boxing and Tyson was a sight to behold in the 80's. He came at a perfect time when there was a huge void in top talent. I'd still bet all the marbles of Ali at his best defeating Tyson at his best.
Great vision, good speed, and a hitter. Glad to have him on board.
Alabama and Miss St in the top 22 makes me wonder if these stats are legit.
So the best defender at the combine has the worst outside shot. BFD.
Eff UM license plate, priceless.
Having been a member of the Buckeye club for the last 5 years I have gotten the pleasure to see some of these young men grow up on the field. I have to admit a sense of Buckeye pride seeing some of these replays. Especially the Carlos Hyde run. Run Carlos Run...
Leave it to the Steelers to make a smart decision and pick up RDS. Hate the org, love their commitment to excellence.
Just wish we would use one more often. 6'4" 250 running across the middle is damn hard to stop.
Since the Browns suck and have for 50 years, it is only fitting that Johnny Football ends up there. I may actually begin to watch Browns games hoping to see the exact minute when he is broken in half.
Let's see if he can work his way back to tOSU as President some day.
5 out of 10 and almost all guesses. Proof that guessing really does work.
Some of us think that anyone under the age of 30 or so is still a kid, although the ones serving overseas are certainly exceptions.
I'd love for someone to do an "objective" study and see what all the perks of being a full scholarship football player at a school like OSU is actually worth. More precisely, how much does the University actually spend on each of those players including clothing, technology, education, tutors, trainers, training, etc. Obviously, this would vary by school and often by athlete, but it would be good to know what the real numbers are. I am sure they would seem low for some players like Brax, and high for others who may ride the bench most of their careers.
