    Ex-Buckeye marvels at what Smith achieved

    While Cornelius Greene watched Troy Smith’s dream 2006 season, the pride he felt was tempered by a tinge of what-if?
    As in, "What if I had been born 15 or 20 years later? "
    Greene became Ohio State’s first black starting quarterback in 1973, helping the school win or share three Big Ten titles. Smith recently capped off a marvelous career in which he went 25-3 as a starter and led the Buckeyes to the national championship game.He won the Heisman Trophy and is expected to be a first-day NFL draft pick.

    Great photo!!!

    In my opinion Ohio State's best backfield of all time (Griffin, Johnson, Greene, Baschnagel). Note: Back then Baschnagel was considered a "wingback"; today he would probably be the flanker or slot receiver.

    Love to see again those shoes! :biggrin: Hard to imagine Woody letting those go, but Woody respected and loved Corny. :bow::bow::bow::bow:
    I wonder if Corny ever weighed more than 175lbs? Doubt it.

    There is also a BPwiki started last May for info regarding Cornelius.
    Anyone can add to the pages there.

    I remember him from back then as a very approachable, decent, and down-to-earth guy. No "I'm the bomb" stuff.

    He remains a credit to Ohio State from everything I read.
