Great article! Here's a story that sums up the kind of guy he is: I texted with him early this past season about how he was doing on the field. He immediately started talking about how he wanted the backups do well and that he was pushing them because he knew they needed depth for later on in the season. The next week myself and a few other family members went to a game. We were seated right behind the defense's bench. We were up big and it was time for the backups to get playing time. One of the backup linemen was far outside of Coach Johnson's defensive huddle. Adolphus literally grabbed the guy, yelled something at him, and basically shoved him into the middle of the huddle. The player went in for him and each time they came off the field, he was in his ear trying encourage him. Adolphus is a team player and he's always willing to do what is best for the team. I hope he is rewarded with being named a captain. He is not a flashy guy but he is definitely a quiet leader and a great teammate.

Manny wanted to press Floyd but he was being hit with clean counters every time he jumped in. It may not have been knockout power shots but accurate and clean counters hurt just enough to prevent someone from rushing in. Floyd also popped him with short hooks when he escaped from Manny when he was trapped in the corner or on the ropes. Running and ring generalship are in the eyes of the beholder I guess but I didn't think Floyd ran. He used his feet to avoid traps and moved to the middle of the ring to be more effective with counters. All that adds up to is a non-action boxing match and not the slugfest that some people would like to see.

I think OSU is poised to go on a Miami type run with the draft for the next several years. The talent level in the program is crazy high for most positions. Also, the winning culture that has been re-developed is a great help.

Marcus Baugh. He looked really good on that last highlight video. My other pick is Brionte Dunn. Lots of snaps hopefully means lots of confidence.

I think he will do well. I really hope he does for the sake of the team, himself and also Adolphus. If he cannot, somebody else will hopefully step up. I would really hate to see Adolphus have to go back to playing NT. He had a really good year doing that but with all the sacrifices he's made, he deserves a chance to play a more natural position this entire season.

He may not have a good NFL career but I feel that having a really good/great college career is quite an accomplishment. I wish the young man luck in the NFL though.

I'm doing better than I expected. I have a feeling though that when I get home, I'm crashing hard!

Matt Cassel comes to mind when I think of what Cardale should do. Cassel played in more games than Cardale has but Cardale threw for more yards yesterday than Cassel did his whole 4 yrs at USC. Cassel has been in the league for 10 years now and I think Cardale is more talented than he is. I realize that talent alone won't get you very far in the NFL, but if he goes to the right team he can have a successful career. If Cardale feels he should take his shot, I can see why.

I think he will be back. However, as someone who is not a QB but has had a torn labrum, that injury is tough. I still feel some pain in my shoulder from time to time and I am not an active athlete. I can't even imaging having to throw a football as much as he is going to have to throw one now and in the future. I wish for him to have a full recovery and hopefully a successful football career next season and beyond.

Thanks and I agree! There is so much upside for him and the team if he comes back. He really loves being a Buckeye so I can't see him leaving early.

Unfortunately I will be home in Cincy watching the game on TV but thank you very much for the offer! Safe travels to you as well and have a great time down there. Again, I really appreciate the kind words and best to you and your family also!

Thank you very much! I think next year will be a great year for him as well as the team!
