You can argue that this player or that may have been better than Simon, but NO player has ever epitomized what it is to be a Buckeye more than Simon.

That does make me proud to be a Buckeye! He seems genuine in his comments. It's going to be a great year!

Simon has quickly moved up my list of favorite buckeyes. Dude brings it and loves his teammates and university. I hope Nate comes back big. Our D-Line will be comparable to our 2002 team. Let em live...
Sure I am bias but I am really confident that we will have the best defense in the nation this year. The added depth will enable us to play an entire game with the same intensity we start the game. And our secondary is going to be improved not only because of experience but mainly because of the greater pressure being exerted up front.
It seems like it was just last year that Simon was cranking it out for Cardinal Mooney. Hard to believe a 3-star recruit and 4 years later he could go down as the best to ever wear #54 for OSU. If there is one thing that lacked last year that won't happen this year, its LEADERSHIP from the seniors and it starts w/#54...he is going to bring it!
John Simon is the kind of guy you would want to be in a foxhole with. He would cover your back and find a way for both of you to survive.
A leader and a true BUCKEYE in every sense of the word,

I heard Latwann Anderson was considering an offer from Urban and would play CB and if he decides to take the offer, he will simply suit up for the morning of the first game since he's too fast for everyone else and doesn't need to practice. He will also receive an exception from the NCAA so he can play for both tOSU and The U.
Greatest backfield ever... 1974 ... Greatest ever - Archie ... 0-4 Losers
John Simon epitimizes the title " Ohio State Buckeye!" First class, focused on the goal, and totally commited. Talk about leading by example!
I recall tell my 3 years ago to watch for a new kid named john Simon. I told him how strong he was. Well he's grown into a hell of a man.
