    If OSU fans are this happy, imagine how happy Stroud/Miller/McCord and the RBs are! Didn’t envison Thayer returning, but with him back this easily has to be top 2-3 OLsin the country next year.

    Huge...breaking in a new QB is much easier with two stud tackles.

    I feel for Dawand Jones, who has worked hard and waited his turn. Hope he sticks around. Never know when it is “next man up.”

    I thought about that too but I concur with @OregonBuckeye. He's only been here two years and he's going to play plenty this year just as he did last year. He has serious potential and has shown it to some extent, but I see him as a guy that is going to need time to develop as an NFL prospect. So, this year he keeps a year of eligibility and is a sophomore heading into next year with no redshirt. If he keeps grinding, he will develop and be "the guy" soon.

    I’ll be honest...I don’t see any upside for Thayer’s decision, from a professional standpoint.

    That said....if his #1 goal is to get a degree and enjoy OSU a bit longer, than I couldn’t be happier for him.

    It definitely removes one semi-question mark going into next season.

    Bingo, promised mom he'd get that piece of paper.
    I do see an upside though for him professionally, as next year he can possibly play an entire season and try and put some of those back problems behind him. Teams are still worried about if he's injury prone.

    Ranking the top 10 returning college offensive linemen

    Munford is taking advantage of his “super senior” year and returning to school for the 2021 season, which is a very good thing for the Buckeyes. He was a decent starter at left tackle for Ohio State in 2018 and 2019, but he took his play from good to elite in 2020. Munford posted a 91.8 PFF grade this past season, the fourth-best mark in the entire FBS and the highest mark among tackles returning this fall.


    His pass protection was nearly flawless in 2020. Munford stood strong against quality pass-rush units, such as Michigan, Clemson and Alabama, and displayed tremendous processing speed against stunts and blitzes all year long. Over the course of 264 pass-blocking snaps, he allowed just three pressures — none of which were sacks or hits on quarterback Justin Fields. In turn, his pressure rate allowed was half a percentage point lower than any other Power Five left tackle. With Munford and Nicholas Petit-Frere manning the ends of the line, Ohio State might just have the best tackle tandem in college football next season.
