I see the Buckeyes normally running 75 to 80 offensive plays a game. Rarely do they pass 40 times a game, meaning there are at least 40 carries a game for running backs, quarterbacks, and the occasional slot or wr  run. Seems to me the rb is going to get 25 or so carries every game, and probably more on average. I can't believe that isn't enough carries to get a 5 star to run behind a normally very stout offensive line. The 5 stars usually come from the south or Texas, and convincing them to learn to wear more than a jacket and flip flops  in the wintertime seems to be more than most can handle and the real problem.

Watching that video makes me ill again. It can't be healthy to be so completely invested in something that I have no personal control over. But health be damned. God willing, I'll be back next year. Go Bucks. Beat TTUN. Go Bucks, beat Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Oregon, .......whoever they put in front of the Buckeyes.

Ditto Silver. I was at the game in '69 and at the Rose Bowl loss to Stanford in '70. With the losses to UCLA in the Rose Bowl and those inexplicable losses ttun in the 90's, I thought I was scared for life. The years since Tressel's speech have healed many of the scars, but that doesn't mean they'll ever go away completely.  Another 10 or 15 in a row against ttun and a half dozen Nattys would be appropriate payback. Yup, rub it in their faces.
