Wait, but Hornibrook was ahead of Haskins and one of the best QBs in the B1G, right???? /s
Unfortunately, I think this will be the norm. It started with the crappy Heisman coverage. He will be third every time even though he deserves much better.
It is SO hard to replace a successful, popular leader (not to mention legendary). It is much easier to replace a mediocre, poor, or unpopular leader. However, Day seems to get it. The pressure is on though. It would be nice to see ZERO drop-off. That is the expectation and always will be at OSU.
Great write-up Kyle. Looking forward to Haskins and Day picking apart another good defense!
They may matter, but us bitching about them does not. I doubt they peruse 11W regularly.
I just ignore them. I'll watch ESPN if there's a game on. Beyond that--nothing. There are bigger fish to fry.
Gonna be a roller-coaster for a while.
The silver lining to this is that we have different players stepping up when needed. This gives our youngsters experience and confidence. Also, we don't solely depend on one or two guys where, if they have an off game, we're hosed. I think some true clutch guys will emerge, but like how balanced and spread out the contributions are. Our bench has been very good for the most part.
Agreed--the Illini coach was awful! Cursing at the refs and giving them a hard time--and he did not get a T.
