Terrelle Pryor, Olympic gold medalist Butch Reynolds always questioned the idea that, south of the Mason-Dixon line, speed kills, but only causes a flesh wound in the Big Ten. “I’m not going to any Slowhio coach, the coach of the previous rate of football at Ohio State, he said, using the old insult Ohio.
Then he fired his own warning shot. “Wait and see how quickly Brandon Saine is,” said Reynolds.
Saine was a prized recruit when Reynolds said in 2006. Although it has since been eclipsed by the enormous potential of junior quarterback Terrelle Pryor, is safe to say that Brandon Saine has arrived.
He is the only rider from Ohio State, which may scare a defense to death at any time he touches the ball anywhere on the field. The native of Piqua was the preparedness of high school record in the 100 meters with a 10.36 clock. Saine was dangerous as a receiver; too, with hands that you want to Braylon Edwards I could have paid for just one day.
It’s amazing to me that he is a senior. It’s just gone in a jiffy, “said Ohio State coach Jim Tressel.” He can do something with the ball, and works in silence and just study. And he’s a smart player and a good receiver. ”
Saine was not Reggie Bush, who was compared. An arthroscopic procedure on his knee Saine and a thigh injury kept Saine become a national denomination. Now divide rights runner Dan “Boom” Herron, who is a favorite Tressel due to its inner workings.
Everyone knows, however, that Saine is the only one who can make it appear as if going downhill. He is avalanche rider, one who can turn a small profit on a large. His teammates call him “B-Saine,” as if to hurry the words. This is because back in time in the 40 4.2 is definitely its own right hurry.
Asked if the bowl game was “Saine tour de force,” Tressel said the tour had been going on for some time. “I think he did great things as recently as – had a long career, had a touchdown run in Michigan, Oregon in the game played well and he played well [against opening opponent Marshall],” Tressel said.
While running for 40 yards and 45 yards against Marshall are welcome, is the marquee game where players make their names. Saine scored on a blast from 29 yards against Michigan. Records are not important in rivalry games, which are always brutal affairs. He scored on a 49 yards against Iowa in the championship game of the Big Ten. The 6-1, 217-pound Saine also had a 22-yard touchdown that day, bulling through defenders last minute.
In Miami, the game today in the national spotlight, the speed and versatility as a receiver slot Saine could help spread the Buckeyes defense in Miami.
The possibility that Saine will get the bulk of the carries against hurricanes is slight, however. Tressel likes the mix you have in the backfield. Saine figures history of hamstring problems in the equation, too. It also has a quiet personality for a live player. The media continues to Calliope Pryor everything is not for him.
In mid-season last year, many fans want Pryor switched to receiver or runner. Now, facing an important match, which is again the focus of most expected. Perhaps its rise coincided with the development of more weapons. Saine kills quietly, but still so dead.
