Skull session: Dwayne Haskins was like brother to the Buckeye quadruple, Ohio State linebackers shine in the NFL, TBDBITL reveals first-half show

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Word of the day: Cudgel.

Big brother. Justin Fields did not have an actual relationship with Dwayne Haskins before coming to Ohio. And with Haskins leaving the NFL, it made perfect sense that they would never develop this relationship.

But that is not what happened. Haskins welcomed the heir to his throne with open arms and became like an older brother to him.

That’s yours now, Fields remembers Haskins told him.

What Haskins meant on that day in April, really, was that the shot to lead Ohio’s loaded roster into 2019 was in the fields. What no one realized at the time was that Haskins was giving him a legacy.

“I’m not going to lie, he started something,” Fields said while driving home from the off-season Beers show on Tuesday. “You could say he did. We’d never know if you went to Ohio if he wasn’t there, but you can give him credit for starting something. I was thinking about it the other day, and I saw something on the internet – before him, there wasn’t Already an elite pedestrian in Ohio for years before that.

“I think he started the elite group passing by, of course, me, and now CJ [Stroud]. ”

Although Haskins had already announced the draft, he played host to Fields’ Weekend on Campus, introduced him to his girlfriend, took him to a basketball game with former coach Urban Meyer, and showed him to a college campus he’d never seen. Prep recruiting.

“If I’m going to be honest with you, before that, we kind of talked, but we didn’t really talk much,” Fields said. “It was like I was there, we’ve known each other our whole lives. It was so amazing, so welcoming. I think that’s where our relationship turned into a more personal one, we got to know each other more. And he became like an older brother to me.” “.

Haskins was the chief executive ever in transforming Ohio State into the modern University of Queensland. He was more than happy to lead that group even after his time in Columbus ended.

Big brother. Justin Fields wasn’t the only Buckeye quarterback to follow in Dwayne Haskins’ footsteps, or call him Big Brother.

Haskins played this role for CJ Stroud as well.

CJ Stroud called him an older brother.

After taking the quarterback at Ohio State last fall, Stroud found an encouraging mentor in Dwayne Haskins Jr.

Just three years earlier, Haskins had made a similar start with the Buckeyes, taking a high-profile position and facing all the demands placed upon bystanders.

Therefore, he had a lot of advice to pass on to Stroud via phone calls and text messages.

His mum Kim said, “It means a lot to me and CJ, that he was already in his NFL career, and that he would reach out to CJ and get back to him and talk to CJ and make sure he gave him some of that wisdom.”

Stroud also cherished his friendship with Haskins because, even while in high school, Stroud would look down on his deceased predecessor.

In fact, Haskins was one of the reasons he was drawn to Ohio despite growing up more than 2,000 miles away in the Inland Empire of Southern California.

It says a lot about Haskins’ character when several men who came to Ohio State only after his passing called him “Big Brother”.

This also gives us a little insight into what it means to be the primary quarterback in Ohio State – it’s special, and there are only a few players on this planet who can truly understand and empathize. And these guys stick together.

HOW ABOUT THESE BUCKEYE LINEBACKERS? As it turns out, Ohio State’s squad of players in 2020 was pretty good.

It should be noted that Pete Werner also had a Highest degree of defense From any novice since 2014, he was Best player in the league against running this chapter.

It’s kind of strange how there was this narrative in 2019 and 2020 that the veteran midfielders weren’t very good and were preventing some youngsters from getting a chance to shine.

Meanwhile, these guys are swinging in the NFL while Ohio State only had two players transition mid-season after being hit by a run.

Explain this to me… Folks, Saturday’s halftime show is going to look great.

Because I love to have fun, I won’t spoil this puzzle for you. But if you’re confused, I’m sure you can get some help in the comments (or in responses to the tweet).
