I have been away for a couple weeks because of football playoffs(me officiating, yay) and a second bye week for the Buckeyes that was quite boring because all that happened was Oregon lost. I will stick to the last week and such in getting caught up with the times. Once we are finished this weekend it will be the greatest week in all of sports as #TheGAME will be approaching. Let’s roll with a very easy Rumblin.
CARLOS CARLOS CARLOS!!!! Is there a better RB in college football right now? If you had to pause at all before answering the question, then turn in your college football sports fan card immediately. At one point in time he wouldn’t have been in the season discussion at all because let’s face it, he missed the first three games and his first game wasn’t memorable. What he has done since then has been just short of legendary. What he has done is tell us that he would be challenging Eddie’s single season mark from his Heisman season of 1995 had he been playing from the start.
I have been a buckeye fan for a very long time and that’s mostly because I am old now. Not really. Truth is, I fell in love with the Buckeye’s in 1973 watching #45 run for a long TD on the TV while visiting relatives in Columbus. Their every Saturday ritual as a family was to gather around the big (in that time) color television and do what I refer to as house-gating. The food my aunt prepared was ridiculous and also had me hooked on the tradition of Ohio State football on Saturdays during the fall.
In those 40 years I can honestly only think of one team that has been a thorn in our side that shouldn’t have been. The Boilermakers of PurDON’T. They have really done a great job of messing up some of those Saturdays. I am of the belief that this may be different for once because of the Buckeye’s performance last weekend against The Nittany Lions.
Let’s get going with who Rumbled last week.
Let’s be totally honest with each other here. Two weeks ago, everyone was concerned about the play calling with regards to just running the ball and how the offensive coaching staff was not spreading the wealth. Fans were having a hard time understanding why Dontre Wilson and others were getting their well earned touches. My oh my, how a single game against a semi-rival who was suppose to be an issue can cure what ails us.
