Too bad there isn’t someone named LeBron on the team. Then we could endlessly debate something that never has a definitive answer...

I want McCall’s nickname to be Run DMC and Teague’s to be Master Blaster. 

Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.

I gotta go with Nick Bosa. I can't think of a better football name than Bosa. (Or am I doing this wrong?)

We have a pass rusher named CHASE. That works. 

A lineman named Knox.  Ft. Knox is a good nickname for a lineman who keeps people from the QB.

Forgot about Baron Browning. The Baron. 

You win with people. 

And so forth...

9 Units Strong!

We were recruiting two players named Boobie and Scooby. Id want them on the team just off their names alone.

There was also a recruit named Woody Barrett who may have won best Buckeye name of all-time had he come here. Looks like he signed with Auburn before heading to JUCO and now at Kent State.

In terms of all football names I remember, Mister Simpson is forever my favorite despite who he played for. Master Teague is a close second and top Buckeye

Current Buckeyes

1. Master Teague III (If the nickname Master Blaster sticks, him and Demario McCall have the best nickname tandem in history). 

2. Baron Browning

3. Tuf Borland

4. Demario McCall, (Run DMC)

5. Demetrius Knox

6. Chase Young

I dunno ... WVU had Dingle and Berry.  That's tough to top.

Varys: I've always hated the bells. They ring for horror, a dead king, a city under siege. 
Tyrion: A wedding. 
Varys: Exactly.

For the music lovers, ttun had defensive tackles a few years back named Rodgers and Hammerstein. My all-time favorite football name was a player from Dayton named Peerless Price. Unfortunately he played his college ball at Tennessee.

I don't give a damn for the whole state of Xichigan.

I think I'll avoid that game

Varys: Exactly.

Vaughn Broadnax

John Brockington

AJ Hawk

Rex Kern

Bob Brudzinski

Jack Tatum...lots of them on the 68-70 teams

Jake Stoneburner

I tried not to conflate their names with how much of a bad ass they were on the field, with Jack Tatum that is kind of difficult!

Na'il Diggs -- Flat out badassery

Lorenzo Styles -- Maybe more cool than football

Keith Byars -- On "Keith" factor alone

Great player, but least football name? Dane Sanzenbacher

Tuf Borland really is the best name for a linebacker.

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

He’s not a Buckeye, but, it’s a great name for a quarterback. Liberty QB Buckshot Calvert:
