Hyde was the type of back that got stronger with more carries. Zeke is who he is from carry 1. I have no doubt he could carry the ball 25 times per game, but there are so many carries to go around. Rod Smith is running hard, Curtis Samuel is a gamebreaker. Wilson and Marshall put so much stress on defenses when they get the ball. And JT, the distributor, has shown he can tuck the ball and break defense's hearts. We will never know if Zeke could be exactly like Hyde, but he doesn't need to. 

Zeke is doing exactly what is asked for him. In that manner, he ranks with all the great Ohio St. RBs.

I did not realize he weighed 225. What a freaking beast. Considering he is already a terrific blocker and pass catcher, I agree with you. I hope he develops into that 4th quarter RB, like Hyde, that just destroys a team down the stretch. He may already there. Nov 8th will be a big test.

I had to read that about 50 times. The top 4 rushers in the FSB are all B1G RBs. Incredibly talented RBs in this conference, and that will unfortunately mean that EZ will be 3rd team or honorable mention, though he is worthy of so much more.

I love how hard Zeke runs and blocks. He really throws himself into plays, and I often cringe thinking he is going to tweak his knee or slam his shoulder in the turf. But he is tough. He is also extremely talented. When you consider his work ethic, his toughness, and his incredible athleticism, I think Zeke might even surpass Hyde by the end of his time here. He is turning into the complete package I thought Jordan Hall would turn into. I think the sky is the limit for this young man.

I actually think this is going to be a tough game against Penn St. It is a tough place to play, they have great talent in their front 7, and Hackenburg will be looking for some revenge after the pasting last year. I don't know if that will help him with his porous offensive line and lack of weapons, but arguably the most talented QB in the B1G is going to be fired up for this game. It should be a good one.

I think weather conditions had something to do with some of those poor throws. The ball was wet and it was windy. Having said that, I am realistic. Consistent downfield throws are a thing for him to work on.

Beast! He is so dialed into this offense and what the coaches want him to do. By the way, he can run. Don't kid yourself.

I love how, after trying to reward Spencer for his great blocking for the first three downs, they just tell JT to get us a TD on 4th down. I think the coaches trust this kid!
