So I'm procrastinating and reading the offense UFR when I decide that I'm curious to check if wikipedia has any articles on speed--not the classic 90s action movie, the amphetamine, or your run-of-the-mill rate of d/t, but perhaps something on the physiology behind the varying ability of an organism to move fast, especially when that ability varies within a species, specifically humans. Basically, a "science of sports" type of article. Misguided and stupid? Perhaps, but just let it be.
Jonas is a linebacker. He's got a badass beard. He hits people. We sit outside Schembechler Hall, me with my pen and my notebook, the light of my recorder burning OSU red. I catch him staring at it a few times. Jonas is tired from his workout. He missed his ride home with teammate and fellow linebacker Obi Ezeh. He hasn't even had time to take the tape off his wrists. Because of me, he's now going to have to ride Obi's bike home. Jonas has gone from being less than excited to being a little pissed.
Man I love this kid. All the kids on this team are so grounded and are growing before our eyes. Here's Tree:
An interesting quick read. Even Boren grunts a few answers. Although the Plain Dealer is normally a horrific OSU homer rag, there's nothing inflammatory, and they are actually fairly complementary about D-Rob's hot start.
