A random thought on a non-football Saturday.
Players are eligible for NFL draft once they are 3 years out of high school.
If a player has enough talent and publicity after RS sophomore year or junior year, he is gone to the NFL in today’s world.
Heisman voters rarely select a freshman. Even if a freshman has great stats, he just isn’t well known enough to win in most cases.
Archie was in the top 6 Heisman candidates as a sophomore, then won it in his junior and senior years. Can anyone imagine a player sticking around for a senior year who had that kind of success in today’s college football world?
Number 45 will always be a source of Buckeye pride.
