This kid was an absolute stud at the state championship game! In person against great competition he looks quick and went hard every snap. A non stop motor is something that you can't teach and is a huge factor for a D lineman since they get smacked around every play IMO. He always came back for more. He also seemed to have a great attitude and supported his teammates. I thought West Virginia was getting a heck of a player and I'm pumped that he is joining the good guys!
Fantastic piece Michael! We sometimes act as if these kids don't want to be Buckeye Legends that go make millions in the NFL during a Hall of Fame career. That is what we as fans want and I think they have a more vested interest in their future than we do! The ones that lack toughness and effort weed themselves out but that doesn't make them bad people. Of course, that doesn't stop me from yelling like an idiot during the games and saying so ridiculous things at my TV. Passion and emotion are tough to control but I think all Buckeye fans want the best for the players and coaches that represent our university. Very cool open with your iPod story!
What an amazing woman and an amazingly written story.
At least its not flooding in Columbus today...................
I live in Upper Sandusky and they were a fun team to watch! Not much defense but they scored and won a lot. Talked to them all and they are good people that love basketball. Witnessed them playing golf at our local 9 hole course and that wasn't very pretty. This small town was obviously proud of Jon and made what was a big Buckeye town even bigger. Happy to here Jake will continue their association with the program!
Sounds like an amazing class! Hopefully Bell decides for the good guys but I like the secondary class without him. Meyer and Co. are relentless . I love it!
Nice to see these talented guys stay in Ohio. This Meyer guy just might know what he's doing. Come on down Mitchell your next!
What stood out to me was Buford's rebounding and he had some really nice passes to set up easy baskets. I wonder if he can ever get that fully engaged in a game when his shot is NOT falling. Past evidence says no and he is running of future in terms of being a Buckeye. Let's hope he plays at this high level and we can make a deep run. We can lose to anybody and we can be anybody. Don't tell me Kentucky is invincible, that was us last year.
