I agree with everything you said. And what really impressed me about Zeke is his durability. We leaned on him heavy throughout the post season and he never slowed down. He's big, he's fast, he has the vision, and he is durable. Zeke's performance in those last three games has a historical significance that should also be noted. From now until the end of time, any one of those coffee table books about OSU football that you open, is going to have a chapter talking about what Ezekiel Elliott did in 2014-15. That's pretty special.
Curtis Samuel will have his chance in scarlet and grey, no doubt. I would love to see a thunder and lighting backfield this coming year. Rotate these guys like tires at the Indy 500. Both of them likely have million dollar contracts in their future, and we all know that RB's have a quicker expiration date than most. It seems like running Zeke until the wheels fall off isn't in anyone's best interest.
Let's keep these defenses on their heels and give them more than they can handle.
