Lest just beat everybody by 69+. That way more players can see more snaps.
And with 69, everybody wins!
fwiw, Tommy will be on the field. I really have to think we will see Teradja, and Proctor also, if nothing more than experimenting early w combinations.

The potential of Taron Vincent and Tommy Togiai drives me crazy. So highly touted, I hope this isn’t a seniority thing! Look at the studs Alabama and Clemson just put into the NFL on the defensive line. I feel like Vincent and Togiai meet that kind of potential not Hamilton and Landers. I just think we’re sitting on them way too long. I guess I’ll see. Love Mitchell too, way more physical than Werner. We need that Darron Lee type threat back on our defense. He fits the mold perfectly if not better.
We need to stop holding the young bucks back! ie look at that 2015 championship team, all sophomores. Play the best player or get smoked off the field by Clemson and Alabama.
Is there any question whatsoever that Mitchell should get a shot at MLB over Tuf?
Tuf has proven that he is an inadequate athlete to play here. Time to look for another option.
tuf should never play again.
And before his supports chime in, he was way too slow (and small) before the Achilles injury.
If the coaches think he should play, he should play. I gotta believe they know more than we do. You can't teach Tuffness.
THAT'S HOW COACHES GET FIRED
SHIANO AND IS HIS DEFENSIVE STAFF ARE GONE BECAUSE THEY PLAYED FAVORITES WITH BORLAND AND WERNER AND IT GOT THEM ALL FIRED
You don't have to yell...
I have to think all of these guys get some meaningful minutes this season. The "potential" is there, now it is time to translate that potential into quality playing time. Step up, young turks. Time to make an impact. Let the best men play, regardless.

Proctor has best chance to start. I would call him the favorite. Ruckert, togiai and Mitchell will all get significant playing time though. Mitchell could even start with a strong camp.
Why do these players or any others have to be “blocked” if they are the best? I’m not saying they are but seniority should not matter. That has been a problem over the years.
They aren't the best at their position. And the seniority thing is just a lousy myth created by OSU fans.
