    I was out having a few adult beverages last night with Pete Johnson. I mentioned to him that I was watching an old OSU / USC retovision game a few weeks ago. I said that Keith Jackson said during the game, that Woody Hayes said that Pete was not much of practice player, but was a gamer. Pete adamantly denied that was ever said.

    Did Pete deny Jackson ever said that or Woody?

    I don't recall hearing either Jackson or Coach Hayes say it, but I vaguely remember that that was the rap on big Pete.

    I would believe what Willie had to say on this one. I would seriously doubt that Coach Hayes would publicly share such a sentiment on any player.

    Hey "HH" Does anybody close to "Pete" ever refer to him as "Willie?" If so, how does he react to it?

    Pete Johnson!

    So I picked the last thread on this board and just thought I'd add to it. I don't really remember much about Pete Johnson playing for the Buckeyes from when I was a kid. But I do remember him playing for the Bengals, where he was still really tough and a great NFL back.

    Pete Johnson Career Stats:
    #14-- All time Career Rushing Leader at OSU (not bad for the other guy behind Archie)
    #1-- 5 Rushing Touchdowns in one game vs. NC in 1974.
    #1-- 25 Rushing Touchdowns in one season: 1975
    #1-- 56 Rushing Touchdown in career.
    PJ and AG had 4 games where they both gained 100+ yards and one game with 150 each.

    From what I heard and remember, Archie and Co. would drive the field and gain all of the yardage and Pete was the short yardage/red zone back to hammer the ball in. Man, opposing teams must have shivered when they saw him come in the game!:biggrin:

    Go Bucks!

  10. I know one thing for sure, when Pete "Pud" Johnson tailgates, he must have the biggest lounge chair made!! Pete must be going about 350 pounds, huh?

    Some friends of mine played basketball against him on the playgrounds back when he was in school, said Pete DUNKED on them.

    What a stud.

    Congrats to Pete on his induction into the Hall of Fame yesterday!

    We could still use him in short yardage situations.

    I knew Pete when he was an Ohio State player. He was the kind of guy who made sure he returned your pencil when he borrowed it and he didn't take anything for granted or make himself out to be better than anyone else.

    This sounds very much out of character to me. I would be very surprised if he set out to defraud someone.
