    In 2002, Mo Hall scored the game-winning TDs against both Illinois (game 12) and Michigan (game 13) to send Ohio State to the NCG.

    Mo Hall ... not Mo Clarett.

    Hall certainly wasn't great, but he did make some very important plays in a legendary season.

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    He’s also, or at least was at one time, the all time kick return yards leader at Ohio State, I believe.

    It seems teague has the power, speed and work ethic. He needs to work on his vision and agility to be more than just a 1 cut and go. I think that will develop over the year.

    He did and the TD against Illinois was one of the few instances of flashing actual RB talent that I can recall. The TD in The Game '02 was a walk in in the sense there was no hole to misread. He just had to catch a pitch and sprint for the end zone.

    Earlier in that same game you saw the textbook issue with him where he was missing gaping holes along the LOS and the offense was stagnant. MoC comes in and they go straight down the field and score the only TD of the first half.

    I am always respectful of the kids as people, how much work they put in, the physical toll they pay and more. That doesn't change the fact that some of them just aren't any good, even at this level. Ross and Mo Wells were the two worst RB's I've seen at OSU in the 40 some odd years I've been watching it.

    Agreed, but if there's a coach who can maximize their potential at that, it's Alford.

    I have watched Teague in pass pro a lot. He is a huge upgrade over JK. If you watched a lot, JK was a real liability in pass pro very often. His PFF grade is bad, very bad at pass pro.

    Sounding like a possibility that Holmes will be opposite Wade next year.

    Not sure I approve.

    Now this, this is the way to do it.

    On topic, Chambers will be the surprise star. I'd bet that pocket full of $50's Jax was talking about.

    Don’t know if it’s true, but this is the type of transfer I’d be looking for, somewhat out of the blue. From Darnay Holmes standpoint, he has already graduated (great student btw) but the UCLA football program has essentially failed him. The ability to raise his draft stock under Kerry Coombs and have an opportunity to play championship level football would be a great opportunity for him, in his final season of college football.

    If not Darnay, I expect someone we haven’t heard much about, but has legit NFL talent, to try and up their stock by getting a year in with Buckeyes.

    There’s a couple lower level players who have graduated and have the choice of being a 5th-7th rd pick or returning to their programs where they accomplish what? I’m talking about guys at programs like Akron for example....who could come in with their experience, start a season, and elevate their stock like Arnette did.

    I hope I’m right. Getting Wade back was massive....one more corner, or slot nickel, would be welcome. Then let Brown, Banks, and Riep battle it out for one spot.

    They are already 5 over the 85 limit. Every portal pickup is one more that has to go.

    Just something to consider. I don’t see a lot of fat to trim on the current roster myself.

    that's excluding young, okudah, and dobbins, right? without naming names, expecting at least a few transfers as always.

    They are 3 over, and without engaging in what's unfair to the players, it's not hard to envision 4-5 guys moving on, and that's without anyone younger that's unhappy but not publicly yet.
