Skull Session: Buckeye Hoops Lost Lots of Production, Orlando Pace Might Be The GOAT, and Ohio State Gives Unique Recruiting Pitch

The North Rotunda is looking good in today's skull session.


Word of the Day: Jape.

 A WHOLE NEW TEAM. Turns out, when you lose nine players in one offseason, your returning production numbers don't look too hot!

Look at the silver lining – for everyone who loved to complain about how bad they thought the team was last season, it looks like your problem has been solved! You get a whole new team next season!

 GOAT. Everyone likes to get flashy and cute when they're trying to come up with the best college football players of all time. Hell, there are probably even a few Buckeyes whose names would get tossed out there that would be completely incorrect answers.

That's because the best and most correct answer isn't a high-profile quarterback, it's not a dominant defender, and it's not even the running back that claimed two Heisman Trophies.

It's The Pancake Man himself.

It feels like players get bigger, faster, quicker and more athletic every year, and yet I still feel completely confident in saying that I don't think we will ever see another offensive lineman as dominant as Orlando Pace was during his time at Ohio State.

Dude would toss defensive linemen around like they were toddlers and then just go ahead and outrun skill players down the field at 6-foo-6, 320 pounds. If you assembled the perfect offensive lineman in a lab, it would simply be Orlando Pace.

 ASK, AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE. Can't say I've ever heard of a bag of chips making a significant impact on where a #teen ultimately commits, but if any chips are going to do it, it would probably be these very special chips.

A quick Google told me that these chips aren't actually Samoan, they're Australian. Thus, I have reached out for details from our favorite Australian punter. Although, he willfully consumes Vegemite, so I'm not sure how much I trust any food recommendations.

"Roast Chicken Dance" sounds more like a Madlib than a flavor of chips, but if they help the Bucks land a five-star teen then I will consume a bag with glee.

 PLAYOFF BOUND. Johnnie Dixon's no stranger to chasing titles, and now he's returning to The Buckeye State to chase another one.

If you reside in or around the famed Stark County, this is your sign to go out and support a Buckeye on Saturday, June 25th at Hall of Fame Stadium. It's your patriotic duty.

 SONG OF THE DAY. "Stay Together For The Kids" by blink-182.

 NOT STICKING TO SPORTS. A baby who went missing after her parents' death over 40 years ago is found alive... The Google engineer who thinks the company’s AI has come to life... The six forces that fuel a friendship... The man who escaped Auschwitz to tell the world about its horrors... How I learned to eat alone and not be lonely...
