Corndog isnt suddenly "coming into his own." He just hasnt been running for his life like he was in some earlier games. WVU pressures the qb with speed, so corndog wont outrun david long.

Even tom brady looks bad when he's running for his life, and corndog isnt tom brady.

Your team is good, we know that. However, it must be pointed out that the couchburners anonymous group has to realize we have heard all of this before. Will the Mullet allow Red Bull to snatch the pebble from his hand? I don't think so.

you mean like the 2 point conversion he converted against texas? Grier has the fastest 40 timed this year. he's very fast. DH doesnt run him bc it hasnt been needed and he doesnt want to risk him. he likely wont run against cowboys either, as it isnt needed, but you could see him run in cfp playoff if we go up against a defense with a pulse.

Per Dana from the DH show: Grier clocked at almost 22 mph when he ran down the int. To put that into perspective, Sheldon Gibson would hit 22mph.
I have a seriously hard time believing this. Supposedly, Usain Bolt was once clocked at 22 mph. And he runs pretty comparatively fast, compared to other sprinters.

Clearly Will Grier is much faster than Usain Bolt. I also love the use of mph to measure foot speed. This thread is hilarious.

Are we talking 'bout the same Will Grier that clocked a 4.73s 40 in HS? Yeah, even I was faster than that in HS.

BTW...Bolt's highest recorded speed was 27.8 mph in the 2009 World Championships.

i ran a 5.2 in high school and 4.9 in college(defensive lineman), so if i could pick up .3 on the forty back in the day, im sure grier can with modern technology. all i had was a jump rope and wind sprints.

When did we start measuring time of football players in MPH? Basically your saying he could run 22 miles in an hour, you're obviously not saying that but its not a measure of a football player.

Since OSU is facing the Big 12's two newest members in back to back weeks, I did a commemorative gallery of the two series (Link here).

I was unable to find photos from the 1920s matchups, but here's an image from the 1987 Sun Bowl (a 35-33 OSU win):

Also looked through our archives for excepts from each game's recap. Here's an example from 2016's OSU's win:

"The defense, which helped bail out the Cowboys' offense last Saturday against lowly Kansas, was up to the task against a Mountaineers offense that had averaged 510 yards per game.

"After West Virginia (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) used 11 plays to drive 56 yards on the game's opening drive, the Oklahoma State stiffened to hold the Mountaineers to a 36-yard Mike Molina field goal.

"Though a 12-play, 75-yard drive in the second quarter culminated in a 19-yard TD pass from Skyler Howard to Shelton Gibson to give West Virginia a 10-6 lead, it was the defense — like it has all year — turning the tide."
Hope you enjoy!
