Once again, Joe brings the 411 on the doings at last night’s game.
Let’s talk legacy, shall we? You think this year’s #9 has anything to live up 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. Read More
We’re down to single digits! 9 days left before kickoff….and in case you’re wondering, no we will not be counting the hours (but it is 218 hours as of this moment).
Today we highlight two famous Buckeyes who wore #9, and we have a couple of amazing YouTube plays from them as well.
We begin with David Boston, who was our top wide receiver on what was believed to be one of the best Ohio State teams in history (1998).
Boston’s YouTubery comes from the shadows of a vicious war he had with Michigan’s Charles Woodson. The pair had wars of words in the paper every year, and they often had skirmishes on the field to back up the comments, and usually Boston ended up doing battle with every other member of the Wolverines.
During the OSU-UM game of 1998, Boston decided to take a final shot at Marcus Ray. See for yourself….and it’s totally worth the flag Boston gets for taunting.
Next up is our most recent #9, Brian Hartline.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect Hartline to have much of a career at Ohio State, but he proved me wrong. He ended up being the sure-handed WR for the bulk of his career, and his speed was often deceiving when he wanted to take a deep route beyond the safeties (just ask Michigan).
Hartline is now a member of the Miami Dolphins, joining his former teammate Ted Ginn Jr.
And as for his YouTube moment? Well, let’s just say that Indiana didn’t expect this out of him either….
9 days left! I’m ready!!!!
