Skull Session: Chip Trayanum’s time to shine as Kickoff Returner, Archie Griffin has fond memories of Ohio Stadium and CJ Stroud powered by Lemons

It started to feel like it was in Columbus.

That, my friends, means the weather is starting to feel like football weather. Let’s skip the late September heatwave and transition to temperatures in the mid-60s as the sun rises. can happen perfect.

Let’s also have a good Friday, shall we?

To the auditor! Growing up, one of my favorite moments in football was when a kick back or penalty kick player took it to the end zone. My all-time favorite Buckeye is Ted Ginn Jr. , so I think you can make the connection there.

Maybe the Cleveland Browns screwed me up, too. Did you just say that? – Because Joshua Krebs was the comeback guy during my childhood, and he was electric every time he touched the soccer ball in those situations.

But no matter who brought back the kicks, whether it was Ohio State or the Browns or whatever team, I always got excited about what could happen when the kicker had the opportunity to take one to bed.

That’s why all this talk of Chip Trianum taking over the comeback makes me so excited. If Ohio State is ready to move on from Emeka Egbuka as the main man after averaging 29 yards per comeback last season for Trayanum, the latter should show up in practice.

Egbuka thought so. He even admitted that a player-turned-back could be a better return than him, which is crazy to say about a player who hasn’t done so on a team level.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he took the first one he ever took back,” Igboka said. “Seeing him come back in practice, it’s like you don’t really realize how fast he’s going until he hits that pucker. Once he hits that pucker, no one on the scout’s starting team could catch him.”

Ohio State hasn’t kicked the touchdown back since Jordan Hall took 85 yards for a goal against Michigan in 2010. It looked like this on telecast (feel free to watch some other highlights from this game, too, because I definitely did):

Will Trayanum make his first kick in the relegation this weekend? My heart my heart tells me no. However, it would be nice if Egbuka fired his shot at him. Ryan Day might choose to pick up the ball if Ohio State wins the toss, so we can find out sooner rather than later.

The one and only. There is only one Heisman Cup winner twice. His name is Archie Griffin, and he was Really, really, really good in soccer. I’m not sure you can put enough conditions before good to justify his talent either.

In a recent article with Aaron Marshall of The Ohio State Alumni Magazine, Griffin shared some of the memories he made in his time as Buckeye. Among them was his last game at Ohio Stadium on November 15, 1975. As Griffin explained, coach Woody Hayes pulled the seniors out of the game one by one to thunderous applause from the crowd. It is an experience that Griffin has not forgotten to this day.

“It was great to see all the people in the stadium applauding the seniors. This big class never lost a game on the field,” he says. “I still feel suffocated when I think about it. I remember Woody who went out on the field a little bit and shook both of our hands. I really like the way he did it.

“There are a lot of places that mean a lot to me, but Ohio Stadium was huge to me because of the way things happened and the hugeness of being in that place and playing in front of 80,000 people.

says Archie, who — after seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals — went on to work for 19 years in athletics and served 11 years as president of the Alumni Association. “This is definitely one of the most memorable places ever.”

In Ohio Stadium’s 100th year, it’s easy to feel nostalgic about all the sweet memories Ohio football created in the last century. This moment was one of Griffin’s favorites. What is one of you?

Enhanced with lemon. CJ Stroud and Luke Wypler signed a name, image, and likeness deal with a moisturizing company called Lemon Perfect. The former will be a stock partner and brand ambassador, while the latter will be a corporate spokesperson.

I won’t go into the details of the deal, because I basically don’t know it. But I have to share what Stroud said in a press release (he wasn’t Klee a PR intern from Lemon Perfect).

“Lemon Perfect helps me perform at my best every day by keeping me hydrated,” Stroud said in a press release. “It was a job to make sure I’m drinking enough water, but Lemon Perfect is easy to drink throughout the day. It tastes great, it’s refreshing, it’s good for you, and I don’t have to deal with the mess of making my own lemon water.”

That last line got a real kick out of me, making me imagine Stroud, the record-breaking quarterback, frustrated with the mess of slicing a lemon and squeezing it into a glass of water. But, each one is special. Now he has a zero deal that allows him to never have to worry about that kind of thing again.

And in case you were wondering, Stroud’s quest for the Heisman Cup and College Football Playoff would be because he would never lack the vitamin C and soluble fiber that lemons provide. At least that’s what Lemon Perfect founder and CEO Jani Hoffnagel thinks.

“Powered by lemon, CJ is poised to have one of the best statistical seasons ever by this Heisman Award-winning quarterback as he leads Ohio State to a national championship,” said Huffnagel.

So, Buckeye fans remember, if Stroud lifts the Heisman and CFP awards this season, everyone should thank Lemon Perfect. It’s the least you can do for the brand that helps Stroud and Ohio State assert their dominance on the college football scene.

All hands on deck. The first Eleven Dubgate will occur after a two-year hiatus on September 24, kicking off Ohio State with Wisconsin at 7:30 p.m. and taking place behind the Varsity Club at Tuttle Park Place and Norwich Avenue.

As we prepare for the event, which brings our community together in support of Special Olympics Olentangy, we ask that you help one of our sponsors, Dirty Frank’s Hot Dog Palace, find their truck that has been reported stolen as of September 8th.

Ordering from Dirty Frank’s food truck is a unique experience in Columbus, so it would be very beneficial for the company to have their iconic car present at our event. While we will not ask our loyal readers to become rangers, we do ask that you be on the lookout for the black and yellow van and report any information to the Worthington Police Department.

We hope to see you at Eleven Dubgate as we prepare for what should be a fun night to support a good cause and watch some Ohio State football with 100,000 of our closest friends.
