    As a retired track coach (Moeller 1982 - 2000) I'm excited by what I see in the bios of the newest Buckeyes. When you see sprinters and hurdlers who finished well up in state finals you know they've got speed, explosive strength, discipline and competitive intensity. I especially love it when you see kids who ran the 300 hurdles and the open 400 (talk about a strength events!) and the hurdlers have balance and body control. Looks like an excellent group and a promising next few seasons. Could be we won't need TGJr as a DB. In fact it looks like there's going to be a real dog fight for the DB spots.

    What I've always wondering about is what kind of conditioning is required to make a track athlete's abilities translate into football? I've always had a lingering feeling that track stars (Ginn being the perfect example) who play football tend to be more injury prone, maybe because they lack the muscle mass or composition in their legs to keep all their connective tissue in one place when they take hits. This also brings back the argument of "should Ginn hit the weight room and put 15 more lbs on?"
