Skull Session: Haskell Garrett Needs Help, Jonah Jackson is Balling Out As a Rookie, and Tyvis Powell Shares a One-Sided Feud With LeBron James

Brutus is showing his gloves in today's skull session.

Monday was a glorious day in the Harrish household – I am now the extremely proud owner of a game-worn Lydell Ross jersey.

When the Buckeyes go 11-0 this year, you know why.

Word of the Day: Licit.

 BEEFING WITH THE KING. LeBron James has been one of Ohio State football's biggest ambassadors these past few years, but it seems not everyone's been a fan of The King's attention.

Jason: "So, he shows up at the national championship game wearing your Ohio State number."

Tyvis: "No. 23."

Jason: "That's cool though. You didn't like it?"

Tyvis: "You better be a fan."

Look, if I'm forced to take sides in this beef – they each helped bring a championship to Ohio, but Tyvis did it in fewer tries. Makes you think...

For Christmas, I'm getting Tyvis one of those No. 23 "JAMES" jersies, but I'm just gonna change the name with a Sharpie. Problem solved.

 HASKELL NEEDS HELP. We're less than a month removed from Haskell Garrett getting shot through his cheeks for trying to break up a fight, and – hand up – I feel like we haven't given that story anywhere near enough attention due to *gestures at the rest of 2020*.

For example, I had absolutely no idea that he's had a GoFundMe set up since Sept. 4 to help raise money for the massive medical costs brought on by a bullet wound through the mouth.

Haskell Garrett, a Bishop Gorman High School Graduate from the class of 2017 (3- Time Football National Champions). Haskell is a beautiful soul inside and out.  He inspires and motivates all those who cross his path.  On Sunday, August 30th while walking in Columbus. Ohio, Haskell tried to stop an altercation between a man and woman he did not know and was senselessly shot in the face by the suspect.   Fortunately, he is recovering at home.  The OSU Wexner Medical Center conducted intensive surgery on his cheek.    Thankfully it was a miraculous through and through bullet wound.  Please help Haskell pay for his medical bills which includes extensive surgery and dental implants as his teeth and tongue were severely damaged due to the bullet wound impact.  Please Help a kind soul who tried to assist a terrified woman in danger. God Bless!

- This campaign is being conducted in conjunction with Ohio State Athletics and in accordance with the applicable NCAA legislation.
- Any funds raised over the cost of associated medical expenses will be donated to a charitable cause.

When I checked on Monday afternoon, it was just a few dollars shy of $7,000 – nowhere near the goal of $100,000. Maybe I overestimate that glorious 11W bump, but I think Buckeye Nation could do substantially better than that if they knew there was a Buckeye in need.

Make me correct!

 ANOTHER DOMINANT ROOKIE. This is going to come as a massive shock to you, but yet another Buckeye rookie has stepped into a starting role in the NFL and immediately dominanted.

Behold, Jonah Jackson.

I think there's a legit chance we look back on Jonah Jackson, Wyatt Davis and Josh Myers as the best interior offensive line in Buckeye history. And the good news is, most of them are still playing!

 OFFER HIM. I'm trying not to overreact here but Braxton Miller has a son and he absolutely needs a written offer like, yesterday.

I'm not sure why Ryan Day is kicking his heels on this. You'd think he'd be all over a future Heisman winner?
