The Ohio State football Iron Buckeye Excellence board

About a month and a half ago, we got an incomplete look at the Iron Buckeye Excellence board, which measures various times, reps and distances for the football team. Now, courtesy of Damon Webb, Sr., we have a look at the whole kit and kaboodle, which shows that A) Ohio State as a team is pretty athletic (shock), B) Denzel Ward might be encroaching on the Theory of Relativity, and C) someone should probably redo some of these plates.

Here's the original tweet, with the full board:

But let's take a closer look.

So fast!

Denzel Ward is now sitting at the top of the 40 times, which should make people breathe just a little bit easier if they're still worried about the state of the Buckeye secondary in 2017. The rest of the 40 times remain unchanged, but looking at them wistfully still remains pretty good preparation for the beginning of the football season in a few weeks.

Here's what the rest of the stats say:


Not sure how you can really time a 10 yard dash, but... well, whatever.

Too bad they retired the Shuttle

I love the fact that K.J. Hill is so high up on these. He's got a real chance to be a force in 2017, particularly under a Kevin Wilson system.


Reminder that 36 inches is three feet.

Earlier this year, I was able to bench 225. Once. I thought I was going to die. All of these guys are freaks.

And yes! There are always going to be haters, with their insistence on "facts" and "perspective," but dammit, this kind of info is pretty awesome. Get pumped for football, ladies and gentlemen. It's going to be a fun season.
