I finally created an account on Reddit specifically for this. I submitted the application to join and I'm looking forward to helping beat the skunk weasels in yet another way.

Hang in there Cruiser - my father just had the exact same thing happen a year ago this April that resulted in an emergency quadruple bypass. He's even better than before now, despite being similarly holed up to hide from the virus. God has determined your work here was not yet done and we are glad you are still with us. Happy Vietnam Veteran's Day!

I've actually felt that way since September when we offered him and I watched his Sophomore season highlights. He was listed as about 5'10/180 at the time so I was waiting to see how he physically developed, as I said.

Comment 28 Mar 2020

It's going to be so hard to prove I'm saying this with no bias as Henderson is our guy already, but I've always thought he was the best RB in this class and it wasn't even really an argument. I'm not even convinced that Wheaton is the outright #2, I think that he and Edwards are similar in caliber and style. The only argument in my mind about Henderson not being the best was his size since I thought he looked a little thin, but if he is 6'1 210 as is being reported, there's no dispute for me anymore about who is #1.

Comment 28 Mar 2020

A good list, but how is Paris Johnson Jr. not on this? Everyone is sleeping on how important keeping him in the fold was after Urban left...he plays the most important position on the field (after QB). Honestly, I might even have his reaffirmation at #1 here.

Comment 28 Mar 2020

In the comments of one of his videos someone had mentioned that he recently moved to Ohio too. No way to confirm that but maybe we will catch RJ at a game or two this fall.

Comment 25 Mar 2020

I deleted my twitter app when I deleted my account a few years ago, so when I'm on there I use the browser on iPhone. That may be the difference because it gives me the embed option when I tap the arrow next to the top of a tweet.

Hitting someone on defense is totally different than absorbing contact and trying to run through tackles...Denzel Ward is like 5'11/180 and does things like this:

Comment 25 Mar 2020

I noticed he didn't really seek contact either. He's listed as 5'11 but he looks taller than that, and Birm confirmed this:

What Henderson — who is listed at 5-foot-11, 195-pounds on his 247Sports.com profile but is at least 6-foot-1

So if he is still around 190-195lbs at that height he needs more weight and mass for sure, probably another 20lbs of muscle before he can really start running through other players - especially at the next level. Mick can get him right without losing his elite speed once he's on campus, but he has an entire year of growing and developing to go before that so it will be interesting to see where he ends up. For reference as to how solid our RB's normally are: Dobbins was 5'9/215lbs, Weber was 5'10/215lbs, Zeke was 6'0/225lbs, and Hyde was 6'0/230lbs.

Comment 03 Mar 2020

My statement was not about what they will do to replace Teague from the current roster, it was remarking how absurd it is that the school with perhaps the greatest history at RB which has continued at near perpetuity through this past season has been unable to adequately recruit true RB's. I like Gill and McCall, but they are never going to be able to run between the tackles.

Nothing against Steele Chambers, Miyan Willaims, or even Marcus Crowley (who I've been high on since his recruitment) but you don't see a lot of ready-to-go, stereotypical OSU RB's out of that group.

Comment 03 Mar 2020

I'm very familiar with the recruiting situation and I don't need someone to explain to me why this is the case, but the bottom line is that this should never happen at Ohio State. We should never be down to one scholarship RB in the spring, or possibly only 2-3 for the entire season. I would have to imagine the transfer portal will be given a hard look for someone immediately available, and I doubt that would affect RB recruiting for this cycle as some have expressed fears over. I don't know who is being held accountable for this numbers issue, but someone should be.
