    STILL GOT IT. Not every loud noise heard this weekend was a colorful sky explosion. Some were from Ohio State's largest son proving he can still dunk like a little kid on a Nerf rim.

    The dunk is money, obviously, but the fact that the regular-sized human in the video is trailing Dawand tells me that all 360 pounds of Big Thanos probably broke that poor lad's ankles a few seconds earlier. Now, *THAT* is what I want to see on tape.

    Austin Ward: Dawand Jones will block three field goals for Buckeyes
    Originally viewed as a raw, long-term project, Dawand Jones bullied his way out of a redshirt season by finding a way to generate value elsewhere for the Buckeyes. Yes, Jones was ahead of schedule in his development as a blocker and looks like a potential NFL tackle. But it was the way he used his massive frame to both collapse the field-goal protection and get hands up to challenge the kicks that sparked an idea for the coaching staff that using Jones as a true freshman was more useful than saving a season of eligibility. Jones isn’t likely to win a starting job on the offensive line, but he can again be an absolute force on the field-goal block unit.

    Is that bold or just "click baity"? It'd be bold to predict he'd block one. I'd be happy if Jones gets a good amount of reps on both sides of the OT line for experience.

    Love to see him crash the line and get a big paw on a field goal/extra point. Concerning a post above, no, if Dawand was driving to the hoop, I'm certain I would think twice against taking the charge. Might not survive it. But his agility and footwork (big deals in basketball), should/could pay dividends as a tackle. Go Bucks!

    Yea, taking a charge against that dude looks like it could absolutely result in a concussion or a black eye for the recipient.

    Still would love to see him run Dave on short goal-to-goal situations, from the 3-yard-line in.

    This got me thinking... why not put him in inside the 5 yard line as an OT? Who cares if its obvious what we are doing. Jones can move anyone and that has to be utilized
