We're strictly ranking soups here, not soups with other items.

Tomato soup on its own isn't even in the discussion. But pairing it with grilled cheese makes it magical. 

Comment 26 Oct 2015

Soup in general is crazy underrated.

But yeah, Chicken Tortilla is the best. Honorable mention: Smoked gouda & red pepper. Used to be my go-to at Marketplace back in the day. So nice.

On a per-game basis...

2014 EzE: 125.2 yards (6.9 YPC), 1.2 TD

2013 Hyde: 138.3 yards (7.3 YPC), 1.6 TD (including his 3 receiving TDs)

Those numbers projected over a 15-game season for Hyde...

2,074 yards, 24 total TD (Zeke last year: 1878 yards, 18 TDs)

And if you take out the FAMU game (he played like two drives) and re-adjust his stats, you get...

2,220 yards, (148 YPG), 26 total TDs.

Meanwhile, here's Zeke's current pace, over a 15-game season:

2,118 yards (141 YPG), 24 TDs.

People forget just how damn good Carlos Hyde was. Shame he never got to play a true full season here.

Violating commenting policy AND disparaging the great name of the world's second greatest soup? How dare you.

(first is obviously chicken tortilla and I will fight you if you disagree because you're wrong.)

Comment 26 Oct 2015

Carlos Hyde missed 2.5 games in 2012 – and didn't have the chance to play in a B1GCG or a bowl game. Ran for 985 that year.

Love Zeke, though.

Super unpopular opinion: 2013 Carlos Hyde was (slightly) better than Zeke is right now. Missed the first three games, then played sparingly against FAMU. Ended up with 1500+ yards and 15 TDs in essentially 10 games that year. He was unstoppable.

Comment 26 Oct 2015

There were at least two of them last season alone, actually.

Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon: 813 yards

@ Purdue - 205 yards

vs Nebraska- 408 yards

@ Iowa - 200 yards 

Oklahoma's Samaje Perine: 791 yards 

@ Texas Tech - 213 yards

vs Kansas - 427 yards (record)

vs Oklahoma State - 151 yards

Those defenses are far below the level of Wisconsin, Bama, and Oregon, though.

Top of my head – Illinois in 2013? 

Comment 16 Oct 2015

No mention of first-rounder Jack Roslovic, a Columbus native & USNTDP member? Jackets had their eyes on him but Winnipeg scooped him up earlier than expected. He's at Miami if I'm not mistaken.

Comment 16 Oct 2015

Obviously different type players and positions – but how does he stack up to Christian Kirk last year?

Comment 02 Oct 2015

Wouldn't call that his heyday, definitely put him on the map. But Roscoe Dash's verse is why everyone loved this song. "I be goin HAM, shawty upgrade from bologna"

Comment 02 Oct 2015

Man I'm just pissed that he did this a few months after I graduated.

Then again, did see him at Park Street last year. Pretty awesome show. Got kicked in the head twice. Can't really ask for more.


Comment 13 Sep 2015

Let's remember that the offense and the OL looked atrocious during week 2 last season.

We'll be fine.
