Saw the 1968 Rose Bowl live. Was there in Tempe for the greatest college football game ever. Flew the OSU flag while stationed in Afghanistan.

I think this is the way of the future: a bona fide NFL aspirant and two back ups content to get a great graduate education, the Buckeye network, and a wonderful CFP-contending experience.

1. OP, what did you wind up doing and how did it go?

2. Here is a Dispatch link to an interesting book.

McInally is 6'6" and was also a wide receiver for part of his pro career. I doubt if he had lunch money issues.

IIRC, Pat McInally, former Bengals punter, made the only perfect score. He graduated with honors from Harvard.

Post above is correct: it was 300 lbs. Regardless, slow and weak is no way to win football games, especially when compared to Arizona State.

Yup. Played in a Rose Bowl, got a B1G Championship ring, and Gold Pants. Hoping Xavier Robinson gets a scholarship for at least a year.

I've posted it before, but it bears repeating: Mattison has the opportunity to be Warriner following Bollman. By instituting a simpler defense that lets superior athletes play instead of thinking, he will get superior results. As a case in point, look at Wint in the spring game. And turning around to play for the ball will result in far more interceptions. I wish Schiano had adjusted after Oregon State. He didn't.

For drama, you can't beat Guiton against Purdue. For historical importance, I'll go with 1968 Ron Maciejowski against Illinois. He engineered the go-ahead touchdown on the road to keep OSU undefeated.

What's forgotten is not only were the 1988 Buckeyes slow, they were weak. I distinctly remember during the Pitt telecast the color guy saying only two players could bench 400 lbs. At Arizona State, they had 18 players who could bench it.

Now add in being raised a Buckeye and coming home. Great for the Real Life Wednesday network. Looking at you, Hoak. CFP playoff/Rose bowl or another Music City Bowl. 

The other kind of grad transfer to look at is the player who knows he wants to be a coach. A future Ryan Day. You get two years to absorb in the QB room and see first hand game preparation. Then after your playing days are done, either stay as a GA or get a great recommendation to another top-line school to broaden your experience before becoming an assistant in a rising program. Of course it helps if you marry the head coach's daughter.

Chugonov is the prototype. Player who realizes he isn't going to play in the NFL, wants a graduate degree to set up the rest of his life, and wants to be part of the national championship chase, replete with world-class support system (meals, float tanks, etc.), and trips to NY6 bowl games. 

Comment 19 Apr 2019

1. Baldwin's valediction means OSU needs to find another Chugonov: a grad transfer QB immediately eligible and willing to spend two years getting a degree to set up his life. Plus being part of a national-contending team with a trip to a NY6 bowl instead of the Belk Bowl and the like. 

2. I hope Miller plans on being an early enrollee. 

3. Barring a grad transfer, did any of the WRs play QB in high school like Jalin Marshall?

4. The grad transfer rule change would have a much greater impact in basketball.
