Congrats to Buckeye great Keith Byars and his son Keith Byars II on his commitment to Purdue to play with coach Hazell. Good luck in W. Lafayette (except against us - dad might agree). Keith to this day I think you were robbed in '84 by the media craze surrounding Flutie and the hail mary win against scUM south for the Heisman. Hope to see you in CBus in '14.
Wow best of lucky at purdue, I always feel weird when a buckeye legacy plays somewhere else, and yes Keith was robbed bigtime for the Heisman.
Byars is one of my favorite Buckeyes. I hope his son wears #41 and tears it up 11 weeks a year. Byars was robbed by Flutie and Ive detested Miami for letting it happen and Flutie for winning that Heisman. Irrational, yes, but I cant help it
Keith Byars = Nice guy!!!
His son was a nice kid too. Talked to him yesterday about his pledge to Purdue. When you're a program like Ohio State, not all legacy kids can come play. Now OSU fans just hope it doesn't come back to haunt them.

“Without winners, there wouldn't even be any civilization.”
Keith Byars was a stud! I'll still never forget the Illinois OSU game where Byars broke that big run missing a shoe with his sock flopping as he ran down field. One of the best come backs ever!
Byars was a man amongst boys and even in the nfl he had a damn good career. Good rb early in his career and then fullback, then te, and he became one of the best and most versatile hbacks ever to play the game. He's a guy who I think should be a hof caliber but won't ever get the chance because his stars weren't huge or in any specific categories but you win with guys like that and to jr that's what matters most.
this sounds like an appropriate situation for all those Twiiter fanatics, to tweet this kid an offer a simple congratulations to him. of course, I haven't a clue if he has twitter, but growing up a huge fan of his dad, and they are both class acts from what people around them say.
