    No excuse for the young man to not have his own thread.

    It was clear early on that Haskins was sympatico with Saunders. He's a serious threat. Only problem for him is he's inept as a blocker - too small, and not strong enough. But man, can he run a route!

    I understand that Urban is challenging his manhood In the blocking game. But, in an Offense that needs more playmakers he needs to see the field more. He has sure hands and can be a deep threat.

    Walk-on C.J. Saunders played brilliantly when Dwayne Haskins came in and quarterbacked the team. Saunders caught a line-drive touchdown pass from Haskins—which was arguably the pass of the game.

    Take a look below:



    Saunders ended the game with six receptions for 102 yards. By having Campbell and Saunders eclipse the 100-yard receiving mark, it was the first time a Buckeye duo did that since Ted Ginn Jr. and Santonio Holmes did it against Notre Dame in 2005.

    Came in here to say that as well... great hands, runs good routes and just finds himself open.

    If CJ can be a threat what that can do for the offense is much greater then him blocking... besides they could always put him in the slot in passing situations.

    90% that

    10% the fact that they're both 5'11, ~180, play with soft hands and run great routes.
