This young man brings energy in every play, pure heart. Still wish that scoop and score he had against IU a couple years ago had stuck, oh well maybe he can do it against them this year and the refs won’t overturn it.

Love this kid. Always have. He must be so annoying to block. Quick off the ball. Disruptive as hell.

I say all the time that he’s gravity challenged,

Not sure what this means. He's quick off the ball and disruptive. We all know he's not fat, just a little "thick."

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

It's probably alluding to the fact that he is 6'1" tall in the books, but I think that's with high tops on.

It just means that he is short. Some may say he is scared of hights, either way... I'm glad he's a Buckeye and I would never say that to his face.

I thought that was "vertically challenged."

Definitely should be a captain. Leads by example and shows the young guys the way to be a buckeye! 

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Exactly, the definition of a captain.  Sounds like a no brainer to me.

He s a great college player and an inspiration. Love it when he shows up on a play in the backfield at the same time the ball arrives!  Hope he has a great life after college football ends for him.

It seems like he is always in the backfield. Like David said, that disrupts the play, and even if he doesn't make the tackle, somebody usually does.

Good Luck BB and the Buckeyes!

You win with people.

I have always appreciated Robert Landers, and I'm sure I'm not alone.  Great great player.  I hope he has a great year and is drafted high.

Thank you Urban Meyer and Gene Smith

That's pretty much what I was going to say, Hyng8modonwelfare.  I was a bit surprised by the headline on this one.  Out of the fellow Buckeyes I'm in regular contact with, I can't think of one who doesn't appreciate him greatly - especially, since he wasn't exactly our highest rated DL recruit.

Love watching BB play. His first movement off the snap is amazing. Even when he doesn’t get to the QB or the RB I’m sure he creates openings for others due to people having to slide over to help since he’s already half a step past his man. And really if you occupy two blockers as an interior lineman you’ve done your job.

I think this undersells how he ended up at OSU. The story that was told at the time is that opposing HS coaches called OSU on his behalf stating that they had to take a look at him because he had wrecked them in playoff games. I've been critical of some of the 3* reaches we've made lately, but this is not one of those. I love BB and am looking forward to watching him again this year.

How exactly do you know that none or all of the 3*reachers won’t pan out like BB?  How can you be critical of these players before they even start their careers at The Ohio State University?  Go Bucks

Pressure applied up the middle devastates a timing offense. BB is one of my favorite Buckeyes. He is a 290 pound cat that OL can’t catch or drive block.

What sucks is it's going to be very hard for kids like BB to end up at OSU in the future. The early signing period takes sleepers like this away because of pressure to secure a spot. Many kids arnt going to be willing to give up a for sure spot in hopes they get that big offer

His recruiting story is awesome. It was something like every opposing coach against Robert's team in his senior year high school playoff games would call Luke Fickell and say the guy was simply unstoppable. It encouraged Fickell to watch tape and he was offered.  Other than those coach recommendations, he doesn't come to Ohio State.

It is my hope that BB Landers becomes LJSR's Sith Apprentice.

I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...

I had not thought about that, Hove. Great take!

360 lbs? Nah, he's not that thick.

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

BB is a great player for Ohio State he will make an huge impact this season. His motor is incredible.

Landers is a playmaker on the field and a great lockerroom guy off of it. He's the type of Ohio player who appreciates being a Buckeye.

Watching him I do not understand how any lineman does not end up with at least one false start against him per game. As the quarters progress he clearly gets out of his stance faster than those blocking him sending him through the gap, how this does not translate into penalties for the other team every quarter is beyond suspicious!
