    Senior Buckeyes get a day

    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]COLUMBUS ? When Ohio State?s 12 senior football players go to midfield for Senior Day ceremonies before Saturday?s game against Illinois, probably more than half of them will be names most fans won?t recognize.
    Starting offensive tackle Kirk Barton probably is the only OSU senior who will find his name on an all-league team, much less an All-American squad.
    Linebacker Larry Grant is a starter and a solid performer. Dionte Johnson, Tyler Whaley and Trevor Robinson share time at fullback, which is an unglamorous, out-of-the-spotlight position for the Buckeyes.
    There are interesting stories among the rest of the seniors, like defensive lineman Brett Daly, who has an interview scheduled with the University of Michigan medical school the day before the Buckeyes and Wolverines play in Ann Arbor.

    Ohio State's reputation with off-field issues is much better now than it was when these young men first practiced at the Woody and walked across the Oval. True Buckeyes All. Thanks for the memories.

    Tomorrow we will not only see our team take the field but we will see our seniors take the field for the last time. Once it is over more than one will wonder why he can't come back and that he is done. None were instant stars and had to work their way up the ladder. Some were walk ons and seldom , if ever, saw the field. But they worked and sweated and hurt just as the stars did. Some we will remember their names and some we won't, but I bet it matters little to them.
    All these seniors are going out as Buckeyes. I give them a hearty thanks and wish them well. I take pride in being a Buckeye at the same time they were.
    I was lucky , I got to enjoy the fruits of their labor without the pain.
    Thanks to our seniors.

    Not to take anything away from these seniors, but I really hope tomorrow isn't the last time I see Jenkins, JL, Big Vern, or Boone in Ohio Stadium.

    Anyways, this senior class has spent a lot of time at the #1 spot in the polls, has now registered their 3rd straight 10-win season, and will play for their 4th pair of gold pants in a little over a week. That's freaking impressive.

    I think everyone feels this way. If they do, we will be a preseason #1-2.

    I think you are forgeting a conference consecutive winning streak.

    Little-known seniors love being Buckeyes

    Columbus -- Devin Jordan remembers the play from two years ago like it was yesterday. The Ohio State receiver from Massillon High was blocking for running back Antonio Pittman during a spring practice when safety Donte Whitner came in for a tackle and Jordan's left ankle was rolled up between them.
    His Buckeye playing career was over. But not his Buckeye career.
    When Ohio State acknowledges its senior class of 15 at today's final home game against Illinois, most of them won't be familiar to the average fan. Only two of the 15 -- starting right tackle Kirk Barton and starting fullback Dionte Johnson -- were recruited by the Buckeyes out of high school and remain active today. Among the rest are the injured, like Jordan, junior college transfer Larry Grant and the walk-ons that practice without promises, though several earned scholarships this year.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    4th pair of pants in a week? Anything more than one pants in a week is excessive.
