It's becoming increasingly clear that Dwayne Haskins is maybe the most important player in all of college football. With him, Ohio State is a decisive pass-first quick-strike pure rock fury of a team that absolutely can win a national championship. Without him, they're... good. Really good, even. But not badass.
Ive been struggling w the same line of thought bro...he might be. https://t.co/tKnvd6TmZs— JAY RICHARDSON (@JayRichardson99) September 22, 2018
See, I agree with this, and I was a student at Ohio State from 2003 through 2008 (Master's included, put some respect on my name please and thank you) and I saw Troy Smith light up opposing teams in person, so, so many times. The peak of his powers came in the Michigan game in 2006, where I had reached utter confidence in his ability to convert third downs with anywhere from one to 20 yards to go.
Doesn't matter. Dwayne is the best passer I've ever seen. He doesn't have the resume, yet, but it's becoming increasingly obvious that Ohio State has an NFL quarterback under center because his mechanics, velocity, and accuracy (a season completion percentage of over 75% so far, and it should be noted that Troy Smith did that in a single game... once. Ever.).
Anyway, the other thing that makes Dwayne great is his ability to make everyone around him look awesome and score touchdowns, which makes them happy, which makes them want to post on social media, which makes me happy.

The Buckeye offense have been putting up video game numbers. Regardless of the opponent guys are making their plays. Only to set up more down the road. #GoBucks— Michael Thomas (@Cantguardmike) September 23, 2018

So @dh_simba7 now has three 300-plus yard passing games this season and he has moved into a tie for third-place at Ohio State for CAREER 300-yard passing games with three. Joe Germaine & J.T. Barrett share the mark: 8.— Jerry Emig (@BuckeyeNotes) September 22, 2018

Next week is a big one, boys and girls. But if history is any indication, Mr. Haskins is up to the challenge.
