So, the Vincent Smith ACL injury rekindled my thoughts on this. Now, this theory is obviously half-joking, and not an excuse, but do those OSU bastards take out our players on purpose?
Significant recent injuries that I can remember:
Jason Avant - 2003 - 3rd down conversion specialist bent over backwards on a head-hunting hit. Injured knee and ankle
Willis Barringer - 2006 starting safety taken out early on in a game that ended up being a shootout.
Sam McGuffie - 2008 - Concussed on kick return by 2 players squishing his melon.
Vincent Smith - 2009 - Torn ACL as we are driving to get within one score.
Any others that I'm missing?
Obvs not being able to run the ball at all in certain years and Argggg Troy Smith to Gonzales and Argggg Crable with the late hit, etc etc.
