Skull Session: TreVeyon Henderson Takes Offensive Line to Steakhouse, Malaki Branham and E.J. Liddell Give NBA Comparisons, and Buckeyes Do Paintball

TreVeyon Henderson is eating in today's skull session.

Sometimes in life, dreams really do come true.

Congrats to both E.J. Liddell and Malaki Branham for yesterday's life-changing moments.

Word of the Day: Eudaemonia.

 FEED THE SLOBS. Ohio State's offensive line is going to help TreVeyon Henderson eat all season, so the absolute least he can do is make sure they eat well for one night.

God only knows what that bill looked like at the end of the night, but Henderson paid for it with the NIL money he's earned from the past year, which is just a delightful use of the new rules.

 NBA COMPS. Anyone who's ever played basketball loves to compare their games to some stars. Malaki Branham and E.J. Liddell are no different, but their personal player comps might just be a little more... realistic.

Ohio State wing Malaki Branham

Comp: He watches Caris LeVert and Khris Middleton

Why: Branham cites that they have the same build and says he is a three-level scorer, like they are.


Ohio State forward E.J. Liddell

Comp: Parts of P.J. Tucker, Grant Williams, Paul Millsap, and Draymond Green.

Why: Guys like P.J. Tucker, Grant Williams, Paul Millsap, Draymond. I’d take pieces from their game, offensively and defensively. Like Draymond being able to pass and the heart that all of those guys bring on the defensive end.”

Personally, I like to think of myself as a poor man's Joey Lane. That's probably far too generous, but it's all I got.

 PIGMENT WARFARE. One of the best parts of the offseason is getting to watch the team participate in various activities together that have absolutely nothing to do with football.

... like shooting plastic pellets filled with paint at each other at a high velocity.

I respect the hell out of 70-year-old Larry Johnson playing paintball with a bunch of 18-23-year-old football players. I bet he lit their asses up, too.

 MAN. MYTH. LEGEND. Anyone in the central Ohio area has a rare opportunity to meet an absolute legend next week.

Man, this is going to be one HELL of an anniversary gift to my wife.

 SONG OF THE DAY. "I Wanna Be Sedated" by The Ramones.

 NOT STICKING TO SPORTS. The Supreme Court sides with a Georgia prisoner seeking execution by firing squad... Amazon’s Alexa could soon mimic the voice of dead relatives... Where drugs go when they’re snorted... How hunger changes who you're attracted to... How Meta is trying to make VR indistinguishable from reality...
