These are killing me.

I Believe In Ohio State.

Wow, that QB's form is perfect. Looks like a prototypical NFL QB who can make all the throws. Bet he went first round.

Way to go Sam!! Bonus he can go back to Moeller often and dominate on the dodgeball court. 

Jack Tatum hates targeting penalties.

Not to be THAT guy.. but.. "He is the second Ohio State defensive end in the last three years to be selected in the first two rounds of the draft.."

Sam was drafted in the third.

I’m thinking the 11W writers are as surprised as I am that he slid so far. But still, third round is still really good.

Probably prewritten.  Although, it still holds true, just with Tyquan.  :)

Dan Hope's picture

It was in fact prewritten with the expectation that Hubbard would be selected in the first two rounds, and with Lewis, Baker and Hubbard all going within 13 picks of each other, I didn't have the time to proofread that I would have liked. Alas, it is fixed now.

Not to be THAT guy.

but yet you did it anyway...became THAT guy /s.  Don't worry I was thinking the same thing as I read it.  I'm sure the article was already written, and then to the surprise of many he fell to the 3rd round. 

Regardless, congrats to the young man on realizing his childhood dream.

Buckeye til I die

The offseason is the longest season.

Welcome home son...this is just PRICEless...

If the Bengals can steal Jamarco Jones with their 4th round pick, the Bengals will have to feel a lot better than they did last year.

Awesome Draft so far for the Bengals! Now I’m hoping Jamarco Jones is there when they pick in the 4th round.

'bout time! Who dey!

In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 34, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 43, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-15, UM 10-16

Surprised he dropped that far.

You WIN with people.

Great to see Sam coming home and the Bengals getting wise. Here we go!

I hate the offseason.

AzBuckeye45's picture

Awesome. Thought he's go earlier but, nevertheless he's in the NFL. Can't help but to think his smaller frame had something to do with it. The NFL will bulk him him up the right way. Lots of potential.

Welcome back Sam! Who Dey!

And the Browns continue to screw up the draft. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!

Crumb's picture

Happy for Hubbard yet fearful because I've lived in Cincinnati all my life and the Bengals haven't shown any competence since I was 4...If they can't turn it around with Price and Hubbard I hope those two Buckeyes make it somewhere else where they can excel! 

CincyBucksFan's picture

Upgraded the defense lots tonight, hope we can still get Orlando brown or Jamarco Jones next round to solidify our line

Congrat Mr Hubbard.  Do well back home.  Get paid, have fun.

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

Maybe this can soften some of the hate some Cinci folks have towards Ohio State???

m GO BLOW!!!

Amarillo Caballero's picture

What hate for Ohio State? Yes, here in Cincinnati we have a local D1 football program, and 2 local consistently top 25 basketball programs. There is also a huge Catholic population here that grew up supporting Notre Dame. So yes, there are plenty of people with other loyalties. I graduated from St Xavier here in Cincinnati in 2009, and there were more graduates who went to Ohio State for college than UC. It's honestly tiring when Northern Ohioans trash talk Cincinnati as if we weren't also Ohioans.

Jamarkus's picture

Double Amen to that.  I don’t get it either. Jealousy I think....

Seems as though our local Ohio teams are starting to catch on about Ohio State building good football players. Congratulations to the entire Hubbard family.

Now all of a sudden the bengals have started to see what the saints and panthers and Steelers have seen. Buckeyes equal wins.
