    Saine is ok, I just wonder how he will translate to the next level. His speed is straight line speed. He won't break your ankles. I have seen him play, and at times he is very ordinary. Then he breaks off a 35 yard run weaving through traffic. I keep seeing him listed at 220lbs, I don't think he is that big. At least he doesn't play that big. He is definately not an inside runner.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    He's not going to be a RB.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Re: Following Troy Smith

    word ont he street is saine is going to be used as a slash rb/wr type player in the offense. I guess much like percy harvin for fla. Because he isnt going to get too many carries behind Chris.

    Percy Harvin > Brandon Saine

    Its not even close.

    I wasnt comparing the individual player, i was comparing the way the offense would use him. read it again.

    You can not compare the two. They are so different it isn't funny. That is like comparing Ted Ginn to Antonio Pittman.

    I have seen Saine play too and I dont think there is anyway that he will make it as a RB at the next level. Not worried though, I'm sure Tressel will find the best role for him.

    A guy like Saine would have been better served at a Purdue or a Cincinnati. He should have wen that route, but when you're Mr. Football in the state of Ohio, I can see why his ego wouldn't allow him to see that he's not Ohio State material.

    I am in a similar situation in terms of where I get most of my OSU football information but Pittman coming back goes completely against what I have heard from 2 different people (both since the Michigan win). They both agreed with what you said on Ginn and Gonzo but both strongly said they believed Antonio was gone.

    I hope you're right. It should be interesting to see how soon after Jan 8 we start hearing about decisions from these guys. Though if we win the National Championship and they all decide to go pro, I won't care at all.

    Re: Following Troy Smith

    Ginn = obviously gone
    Pittman = gone
    Gonzo = 50/50 (big game in bowl may be a factor)
    Barton = possibly gone (less than 50/50)
    Gholston = thinking about it, but that's it.

    Henton, from what I've heard will be the man, but probably not ready for 2007. He's very similar to Troy, but very thin. Needs to bulk up a bit.

    Boeckman will probably get the first shot in 2007. Lot's of weapons. Beanie at TB. Solid experienced line (especially if Barton returns), solid TE, Boeckman's 4th year with program (greyshirt).

    If the D is as good as I think it will be, Tressel will grind the clock a bit more on offense (see 2002) and lean on Beanie and hopefully Boeckman won't make too many mistakes.

    Searching old posts today and this one popped up I thought it was kind of funny.
