    He is, let's just embrace how silky smooth Olave is. Gus nailed this one.

    Just caught up on Zach Smith’s Friday pregame pod. He mentioned Chris Olave, a right handed receiver, dominance on deep catches from Fields right (67%), vs being on Fields left (0%), and essentially the relationship of hand dominance to hand-eye coordination with the weaker hand.

    Which side of the field was Olave on when he caught a TD, and which side was he on when the ball hit him in the face?

    Say what you will, it’s a very educational pod.

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.


    Who is the best receiver on Ohio State's roster?

    The obvious answer is Chris Olave
    , who leads the team with 705 yards, 11 touchdowns, and an outstanding 17.2 yards per catch. Perhaps you prefer a more consistent option, such as K.J. Hill, who has a team-high 44 catches on the year.

    Whichever suits your fancy, it is obvious that the Bucks have different roles for each receiver. Just like last year, which boasted a sextet of talented wideouts, Ohio State has clearly defined roles that help each wideout fit into its offensive system.

    Olave has emerged as Justin Fields' favorite target. The sophomore wideout has 41 catches and 12 plays of 20+ yards, by far the best mark on the team. Meanwhile, Hill has remained as the consistent, short-yardage target for Fields like he was for Haskins. On the other side, Binjimen Victor and Garrett Wilson are big-play players, acting primarily as red-zone targets with game-breaking potential. Austin Mack is somewhere in between all of this, acting as a reliable intermediate target.

    Each receiver has made their fair share of highlight plays, with this Fields-to-Wilson touchdown just being the latest iteration.

    Ohio State will need more big plays from its wideouts as it will be going against some of the best defenses in the nation for the rest of the way.

    I thought that Wilson was recruited by Zach Smith, if I remember correctly. Close to his "last act".

    If memory serves me, that's what created the great dust-up with Tom Herman, who thought that Wilson was in the bag for UT.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Could have been. I know that Olave was ‘found’ on a trip that was to look at his HS QB. But I also think that Wilson was the kid who blocked someone off the field during a practice. I do think that you’re right that Wilson recruiting timing did align with the Smith / Herman blow up.

    So I could be wrong about some of this... but what I know for fact is that I’m damn happy to have both Olave and Wilson on the roster. :wink:

    Hey, Friend, I don't think you're wrong about anything. Hard to keep track of all this "Faster-than-a-tennis-match" stuff. Hey, I'm with you on having both of them.

    We are now suffering through an embarrassment of riches. Great problem to have.

    :day: :urban1: :oh:

    Not sure if this is something Gus Johnson yelled during the broadcast, but "butter" wouldn't usually be an ideal nickname for a wide receiver.
