I used to work out at Oakland University in Rochester, MI when Chris and Marc Spindler came in for off-season workouts when he played for the Lions. They put 225 on the bar (to bench), did their first warm up set with that, did it 10-15 times, added another 45-lb plate to both sides (making the weight 315) and did that for their first real set. They did this 10 times, and continued up to around 450-475 lb range. They used to smack their forehead on the bar just before bench to get psyched... Strongest two men I ever personally watched bench.
BuckeyeAsylum, things ARE tough, and the world is not fair. The USA is a great country where we enjoy freedom, yet we still have our problems. Props to this young man for making a statement about a serious issue.
Wow, great summation of Chris. He is hands down my favorite Buckeye. Eddie George is second, he was an animal with speed.
DAYUM!! That was one textbook tackle - and he delivered it like a runaway freight train.
No offense to Dixon, but his highlight tape is against the high school my twin sons just graduated from (Lake Orion) and we were horrible this year. I would have liked to see how he fared against better competition.
On a side note, there is a tackle from Lake Orion going to Navy for football this year, but he was THE BEST player by far on the team.
Thank you, Buckslan. That was my take from the statement when I originally read it, but it didn't come out to directly say "yes" or "no".
Sometimes my "black and white" thinking really bothers me.
I can't remember if Meyer is opening camp a week earlier to keep the lost practices from the NCAA removing the 2-a-days. Anyone know?
And thank you for the help.
No kidding. The poor young man probably has permanent grill marks on his backside from all the naysayers.
Amen! Preach on Brother Hove!!
I've said it before, this offense could very well average 50+ points a game for the season if the passing game gets figured out.
This team has a lot to prove. They should even have a chip on their shoulder from that drumming we took against Clemson.
Nice MoEddie, and they should carry that chip and attitude into each and every game, even UNLV and Army.
Nice quote from JT. He speaks like a future coach.
If we can keep Tom Ryan around for a good number of years, our wrestling program will stay a national powerhouse.
Mayfield could rob a bank and they will still try to have him start against us. He is their only hope of keeping the game close.
Is it true the Grown and Sexy Lounge got its name because all the "dancers" are over 35?
And your feet are Longfellows. ;)
Yeah, Linga, I think this may be a lot like Pete Carroll and his leaving USC in such a hurry. I am SURE he knew about the big mess and he decided to "get out of Dodge" while he could.
I hope this isn't the case for Coach Stoopes.
Wow! Holtmann has been here for a very short time but he's working away like he's been here for a year or more.
Indeed! Quiet summers in Columbus, please!!
If speed is the best way to beat the Army option, I LIKE OUR CHANCES.
Great article, Coach Kyle, as usual!
Would a bear front or 5 defensive linemen help to minimize the gains of this offense?
85 - one of my new favorite numbers.
James you wrote "OSU boasts by far the best DE group in the nation. If Young doesn't redshirt, that would tell us all a lot about how special he is already."
This to me is one of the most intriguing and exciting battles to watch this year. We know we are loaded at DE, and if this young man sees the field much, it tells us how great of a player he is and will be. I for one am pulling for Chase to see the field this year.
Yes he was Keze and I remember seeing him on the field. This young man is huge. Let him add some more muscle from Mick's workouts and he's going to be damn scary.
WOW, that is a great video!! Come on, football season!!!
How true... reminds me of the phrase: these are the best of times, and the worst of times.
Only us Buckeye and Browns fans know that well.
