Number nine… number nine…

Written August 24th, 2010 by MaliBuckeye

Let’s talk legacy, shall we?  You think this year’s #9 has anything to live up to?

Something to look forward to

Not only is he at the university where his dad works, playing on the field where his dad won two Heisman Trophies (only one with two- suck it, Tebow!), when he looks at his number he sees 4+5. Yeah, those are some pretty big cleats to fill.

Luckily, Adam Griffin is quite the student athlete on his own right. Our friends over at 11W “caught up” with him earlier in the year; I was impressed with this-

If you could tell Buckeye fans one thing about Adam Griffin, what would it be?
I would say that I have as big of a heart as anyone you will find out there. For what I lack in size, I make up for in heart and effort.

That’s all I needed to hear.

As a bonus, let’s remember that #9 has meant Hart(line) for a while. You can find Brian’s receiving highlight videos on the eBays or something, but here’s one of my favorite plays from his career:

Even now, it makes me giggle…

    I think he’s the best WR to play at OSU outside of Joey Galloway.

    Carter, Glenn, Boston, Galloway

    they all are up there, but yeah, you can certainly make the argument that Boston was the best ever

    You guys are all wrong. Wes Siegenthaler was the best ever.

    Agreed +100. But you can’t tell me that watching a WR lay out that Hoosier ain’t five kinds of funny.

    True. When a returner ends up going sideways, thet’s a helluva hit.
