It's time Brandon Saine gets some credit...prior to today he was averaging 5.5 yards per carry, while Boom was under 3. Tonight he comes in for a drive, and is responsible for terrific offensive momentum, and therefore creates competitiveness between he and Boom which extends to Buckeye offensive running game dominance. Brandon plays a huge part in Buckeye offensive energies while playing "second fiddle" (he is a soft-spoken gentleman-from Piqua). It's time the coaches recognize his significance and give him a more prominent role, which will propel the team to loftier successes in the BCS championship competition. I have been too quiet in my intention to begin a "more touches for Saine campaign". Look back at all the times he has carried the ball, and provided "team adrenaline". Tressel seems to favor Boom, who is more hum-drum, grind it out... boring conservative...-like Tressel.
Vote for the "more touches for Saine campaign". Thanks.
