Editorial:  A deeply felt thank you to Todd Boeckman

Todd deserves our sincere thanks for all he has done for the team and the University.  He led us to an outstanding record last year and to the Championship game.  For that and for his efforts this year we thank him.  All indications are that he is a great young man and a credit to the University.

By Bill Smith

            But OSU and Big 10 football is big boy football.  That means that the best players play and the second best players are key backups.  Terrelle Pryor earned the starting QB spot by his play against Troy Saturday.  He threw 4 touchdowns and had no interceptions that counted.  The last hail mary of the 1st half was a good pass that had a chance and is not a black mark against him.

            Pryor made mistakes like any freshman will.  But given his football IQ, it is very likely that he will not repeat those mistakes.  

            I have great appreciation for what Boeckman has contributed to OSU tradition.  But now it is Pryor's time.  Todd will get in and contribute but the lack of strength in protecting the QB makes Pryor the best choice for OSU to win the Big 10.

            That's what I think.  Tell us what you think.
