Losing Bosa for at least part of the year, if not the entire season, isn’t just bad because of the team implications, but as fans we miss the chance to see what could have been one of those individual performances that we tell our grandkids about. It made me think of other OSU players who departed early not because they had a chance to go early in the draft- plenty of those, but because of an unforeseen circumstance.
A few came to mind...
Chris Carter- suspension
Keith Byers- injury
Braxton Miller, senior year as QB (though it turned out ok for the team) - injury
Terelle Pryor- suspension
Joey Bosa and Noah Spence combination- Spence kicked of the team (again, turned out ok for the team)
