    You wouldn't think so, given that the guy weighs 260 lbs and played DE in college (and LB in the NFL). Then again, he's probably not too far off of Luke Fickell's playing weight. But I'm going to need Cam Johnston as my punter.

    Simon at DT instead of Bennett is dumb.

    Also, Olave over Devin Smith? Maybe after next year but as of now you gotta go with Smith

    Helluva team. Too bad we'll never get a chance to see it on the field.

    One of the only positives about this quarantine has been watching numerous Buckeye replays from 2012-2018.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    IDK man. Olave has a wider array of skills to me

    Smith had the deep ball, yes but I think I’d take Olave of the two.

    I'm just basing it on overall body of work. Smith's is hands down better at this point. I agree that Olave seems to be a more well-rounded receiver and could surpass Smith after this season.

    SKULL SESSION: URBAN MEYER IS AT PEACE WITH STARTING DWAYNE HASKINS OVER JOE BURROW, MIKE CONLEY'S HOME GYM IS HUGE, AND JUSTIN FIELDS' DEBUT SEASON WAS ABSURD

    NO REGRETS.
    Joe Burrow just capped off arguably the best season from any college quarterback ever with a Heisman Trophy and two blowout wins in the college football playoff before he's selected No. 1 overall in the NFL Draft.

    He didn't do any of that as Ohio State's starting quarterback, because Urban Meyer ultimately rode with Dwayne Haskins instead. But even in hindsight, Meyer's at peace with that decision.

    “Dwayne Haskins is probably the best quarterback ever to play at Ohio State,” Meyer said.

    Still, Meyer thinks highly of Burrow, saying that he did a good job of catching up and improving despite not being at Haskins’ level when the two were both in Columbus.

    “Joe was a little behind. You know why? Joe was also Mr. Ohio in basketball and they had a great team in the state championships, and he’s just one of those all-purpose tough guy leaders,” Meyer said. “Joe Burrow is a no brainer. Absolute no brainer. Can he throw as accurately as Dwayne? He’s improved, but he wasn’t that way. But his leadership skills, his toughness, competitive — you talk about a competitive maniac, that’s who Joe Burrow is.”

    We can debate this till the end of time, but at the end of the day, if every decision in my life was like deciding between Joe Burrow and Dwayne Haskins, I would be an extremely happy individual.
