    FIVE STRINGS: STELLAR RUNS OF INDIVIDUAL GREATNESS IN OSU LORE

    Ohio State's storied football tradition is laced with incredible individual and team performances including eight national titles, 35 Big Ten championships and seven Heisman Trophy honors among a laundry list of accolades.

    Since we've officially entered that vexatious stretch of months largely void of any (good) Buckeye football news and as writers we're forced to create our own shot in the form of content, I figured I'll take the next few Thursday slots and bastardize my post game Five Things article with offshoots examining various aspect of Buckeye history.

    Today, I start with Five Strings, looking at a few of the most impressive individual streaks of dominance turned in by Buckeye footballers.

    ARCHIE: 31 STRAIGHT GAMES WITH 100+ RUSHING YARDS
    The King of Ohio State Football, Archie Griffin did enough damage to opposing defenses that I could probably fill out this whole column focusing solely on his accomplishments.

    In particular, he's headlining things thanks to his 31 straight games with at least 100 yards rushing.

    From 1973 to 1975, Griffin rushed for at least 100 yards in 34 total games with 31 of those coming consecutively culminating with a 124-yard effort against Minnesota ahead of a showdown against Michigan in which the maize and blue finally ended Archie's ridiculous run.

    The fact Woody relied so heavily on the run, essentially daring teams to stop it, makes Griffin's record all the more impressive as teams consistently knew what to expect but simply couldn't stop a kid who himself thought he might be too small to be a force at Ohio State.

    I'm thinking Gary Williams' 48 game streak of catching a pass is pretty impressive too. Especially during a time when Ohio State was a predominately "running team".

    Gary Williams catches a pass in 48 consecutive games – Raw speed, soft hands and God-given ability allowed Williams to become a pass-catching machine for the Buckeyes in the late 1970s and early ’80s. He caught a pass in every game he ever played at Ohio State, setting the school record at 48 for most consecutive games with at least one reception. When he finished his career after the 1982 season, Williams was the career leader in receptions (154), receiving yards (2,792) and TD catches (16).

    Any other consecutive streaks that you want to mention?

    FIVE CLINGS: MOST INCREDIBLE RECEPTIONS BY MEN OF THE SCARLET AND GRAY

    [​IMG]

    Ohio State football history is dotted with outstanding individual performances turned in by hundreds of elite athletes who have graced Ohio Stadium.

    As noted last week in the first part of this series, now that we've officially entered that exasperating block of time largely absent of any meaningful Buckeye football news outside of the stray verbal from a blue chip recruit and as writers we're forced to create our own shot in the form of content, I'm going to take the next few Thursday slots and bastardize my postgame Five Things article with offshoots examining various aspect of Buckeye history.

    While last week focused on the most impressive individual streaks turned in by former greats, today I turn my attention to the greatest catches turned in by Buckeye receivers.

    To clarify, these aren't necessarily the most meaningful so you won't see grabs such as Gonzo's clutch snag setting up the winning score against Michigan in 2005. Holy Buckeye also won't be found on this list and it doesn't get much more important than that over the shoulder grab. The list goes on and on of truly crucial receptions in Buckeye lore.

    Instead, the following serve as what I think are the five most acrobatically awesome snags – or at least the most ridiculous ones that can be found on video.

    FIVE FLINGS: MOST IMPRESSIVE ONE-HIT WONDER SINGLE-SEASON PERFORMANCES OVER THE LAST 25 YEARS OF OSU FOOTBALL

    [​IMG]

    Ohio State football is laced with players who arrived with a ton of hype and managed to live up to it for multiple seasons, becoming Buckeye legends in the process.

    Typically, that process starts slowly as a guy works his way onto special teams and/or sees limited reps at his position before gradually turning into a multi-year stud for the local team.

    More rarely, a guy explodes onto the scene as a true freshman or as a forgotten veteran of sorts to put up a huge statistical season, only to vanish almost as quickly as he arrived. One-hit wonders, if you will.

    As noted the past few weeks, with the offseason in full force, I'm filling my Thursday slot bastardizing my postgame Five Things article with offshoots looking at various aspects of Buckeye football history.

    Starting things off a few weeks ago, I listed the most impressive individual streaks of greatness in school history. Two weeks ago the most acrobatic receptions were chosen before last Thursday's look at the most crushing losses over the last quarter-century.

    Today, we march on looking at Five Flings, aka the biggest one-hit wonders turned in by Buckeye footballers over the last 25 years.

    CLARETT GOES BONKERS AS A TRUE FROSH

    Maurice Clarett arrived in Columbus via Youngstown in 2002 with plenty of hype but considering only two other true freshmen had ever starred as Ohio State's tailback in Archie Griffin and Robert Smith, there was certainly cause for pause among the Buckeye faithful.

    That pause vanished following the season opener as Clarett ripped off 175 yards with three touchdowns against Texas Tech.

    Two weeks later he would shred a 10th-ranked Washington State squad to the tune of 230 yards on 31 carries with a pair of scores.

    He would go on to score 13 touchdowns over his first six outings and eclipse the 100-yard mark in six of his first seven collegiate games. A shoulder injury plagued Clarett down the stretch but he still managed to punish Michigan for 119 yards on 20 carries with a touchdown and added two receptions for 35 yards including a wheel-route, on a play he called, setting up the game-winning score.

    Clarett ran into tough sledding (23 for 47) against the Miami Hurricanes in the national championship game but managed two scores and made the play of the game as he chased down Sean Taylor after the 'Cane safety picked Craig Krenzel in the end zone and raced up field. Clarett miraculously caught up to Taylor, stripped the ball and recovered it all in one sweeping motionleading to a field goal and a 17-7 Buckeye lead early the 3rd quarter.

    When the dust settled on Clarett's amazing season, he amassed 1,237 rushing yards on 5.6 per carry with 18 total touchdowns becoming the first true freshman to lead a national championship team in rushing since Ahman Green in 1995.

    Sadly, Clarett was reduced to one-hit wonder status as Buckeye AD Andy Geiger suspended him for the entire 2003 season citing numerous violations of the NCAA's ethical conduct bylaws and receiving impermissible benefits.

    With Clarett never again suiting up for the Buckeyes following his magical 2002 campaign, he's a no-brainer for this list.

    FIVE FRINGS: MOST LEGENDARY BAD ASSES TO DON THE SCARLET AND GRAY

    [​IMG]

    Ohio State's storied football history is loaded with primetime players who became Buckeye legends for a myriad of reasons.

    Some were straight up stat-stuffers gifted with freakish talent, another chunk of guys were physical specimens that bullied their way to greatness, and countless others fell somewhere in-between while leaving their mark on the program.

    Similar to Gus Fring, the stoic, all-business and ice-cold character in Breaking Bad, a select few Buckeye greats were straight up bad asses who played the game with no fear while creating it in others thanks to a style of play that left no doubt who was in charge on any given Saturday.

    As noted the past few weeks, with the offseason dragging on like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, I'm filling my Thursday slot bastardizing my postgame Five Things article with offshoots looking at various aspects of Buckeye football history.

    So far, I've looked at the most ridiculous streaks of individual greatness, acrobatic receptions, crushing defeats, and one-hit wonders.

    Now, we press on looking at Five Frings, aka the baddest dudes to ever suit up for the scarlet and gray.

    JACK TATUM - DEFENSIVE BACK - 1968-70

    The captain of this list, Tatum played the game with a ferocity previously unknown to mankind.

    The two-time All-American and College Football Hall of Famer was easily the most intimidating player of his era as he patrolled the defensive backfield for Woody Hayes. During his three years as a starter Ohio State won 27 of 29 games, two B1G titles and a national championship.

    Despite looking like a natural at safety thanks to sharp instincts and the desire to dish out pain on unsuspecting receivers, Tatum actually arrived in Columbus as a running back before making a career-defining position switch.

    Tatum was so good and so fierce the award presented to the league's best defensive back bears his name (along with some other Ohioan I'll decline to mention).

    When you think of bad dudes to play at Ohio State, the list has to begin with The Assassin.

    HOW GOOD WOULD THE CLEVELAND BROWNS BE IF THEY ACTUALLY DRAFTED OHIO STATE BUCKEYES?

    [​IMG]

    When it came time for the Browns to use the 12th overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, selecting former Ohio State safety Malik Hooker almost made too much sense. After all, the team was among the league's worst in passing, rushing and total defense.

    The Browns used the first pick on Texas A&M's All-American defensive end Myles Garrett, and could have shored up their secondary by picking Hooker. Instead, Cleveland traded down and eventually drafted Michigan's Jabrill Peppers.

    It made some Browns fans unhappy to watch as three former Buckeyes (Hooker and cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley) went ahead of the seemingly positionless Wolverine, but there's also a long history of such moves taking place.

    Well, what if Cleveland's front office actually selected Hooker? Or even further, what if the Browns focused solely on drafting prospects who played their college ball two hours down Interstate 71?

    Today's technological advances allow us to find out. We put every former Ohio State player in the NFL onto the Browns' roster in Madden '18 — trading comparable talent where we saw fit as to make the teams as realistic as possible, hence, Garrett to Los Angeles for defensive end Joey Bosa — and simulated the 2017 season.

    So how did the former Buckeyes do? Let's take a look.

    WEEK 1: VS PITTSBURGH STEELERS – L, 30-24 (OT)
    The Browns led 21-7 at the half behind two touchdown passes from Cardale Jones, but Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger orchestrated a fourth-quarter comeback to tie the game at the end of regulation. He threw for 377 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning score to JuJu Smith-Schuster in overtime.

    In review, the Browns finished 9-7 and made their first trip to the playoffs since 2002. But even a team full of Buckeyes couldn't bring the city its first Super Bowl appearance.

    As they say in Cleveland, "There's always next year!"
