I am pretty sure there were at least 20 more appropriate names offered up on these boards. Oh well, we win regardless of who is picking anyway.

Love Tress, but I’ll gladly take one of the top baseball players/stars in the country, who (as of right now) is huge in the DMV area. Kids are kids, and it may not be the only reason, but it’s probably pretty cool for a HS player to see a top guy like Bron or Harper come to watch the game.

Totally agree. This is good for the Buckeyes.

This is absurd.  There’s about 10000 people that make more sense.

TTUN had some group called The Chainsmokers as their guest pickers.   I’m ok with Harper all things considered.

Beat me to it. They had a few random pickers this year. Not sure why they went that route.

Maybe I’m in the minority, but I think it’s great. Having (insert former football star) to pick the games each week is played.  I expect Tress, Eddie, Archie, etc to all be rooting for OSU.  A guy like Harper, or other people in entertainment, but not in football is kinda cool to see.

I'm ok with the pick. Gameday has had quite a few random guest pickers this year so at least this one has ties to OSU and is a fan. I think Michigan had The Chainsmokers. Plus, maybe they will bring Shazier in for the pregame speech

Make sure the wife is also on set and I’m okay with it.

Harper has been a big osu backer and his wife is a former osu soccer player. I like it 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

But can he play backer? I’m sure he has a couple years of eligibility left.

Hearing some rumors that Bryce will sign with the Columbus Clippers this offseason so makes sense.

Maybe he can shut up the squirrel chaser, who still has not figured out how to get the cotton out of cotton candy.

Dude picks up Ohio State fandom due to his wife and somehow that's a problem, why? You all will be bitching tomorrow if we only win by one. I take this as a sign that Harper's gonna sign with the Tribe. And spare me your "reasonings". They're lame as F.

Seemingly. Seemingly. I believe he's returning from his audition for the Tom Selleck role on the Magnum P. I. reboot.

I had no idea of his Buckeye affiliation, so I'll allow it.

What about Nick Swisher? Isn't he available?

I like this. I think it will help with recruiting.

That said, can we keep all the recruits away from the Gameday set this time?

HS
NorCal Buckeye's picture

I agree. The Baseball Bucks haven't signed a top 10 class since I can remember.

HS

Okay. Maybe Bryce can replace LeBron as The New Kang. (?) He'll surely have the resources to do so in a few months.

Why people complaining about this is absurd. We all buckeye fans, no matter how we became fans. Why not the biggest and most known baseball star?

Decent choice but, Ryan Shazier would have been a homerun !!!

Poor guy's got to go home with Kayla Varner. /s

I'm good with Harper being the guest picker, and if Corso picks ttun, maybe Harper just takes a bat and knocks whatever Corso's wearing into the next bleeping time zone.

I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.

I don't like Harper. Just something about him rubs me the wrong way.

That said, I had no idea he was a Buckeye fan. So, I guess that moves him just a few spots toward the good side of my "shit list".

Was hoping for JK Simmons.  That would’ve been awesome.
