Ah yes, if there’s one thing to let you know football is fast approaching, it’s the arrival of the incoming class of freshmen to start summer school. Indeed, Buckeye football fans can take solace knowing that the one recruit you know and love and can’t get enough of — yes: Keith Wells — has safely arrived on campus. Oh, and Terrelle Pryor is also on campus too.
Bucknuts also recently ran a feature on how the incoming freshmen became guinea pigs in the name of science over the weekend. Specifically, the article discusses how Eric Lichter, strength and conditioning coach for the Buckeyes, had the incoming freshmen subjected to biometric testing to determine imbalances, asymmetries and perhaps lagging heretofore unseen injuries before Lichter runs them ragged in conditioning. Said Lichter: “We are always out there looking for cutting edge techniques to give our athletes an advantage as long as they are within the rules.”
Bucknuts also posted some pictures of the event. Since this is the month of their free crack pipe for everyone, I hope it doesn’t upset them too gravely to post just one image here.
For what it’s worth, Terrelle Pryor measured in at 6’3.5 and 225lbs. I thought he was supposed to be 6’6.
If nothing else, this latest feature should serve as a counterweight to all the fluff pieces on Mike Barwis. Apparently I’m supposed to care that Mike Barwis overhauled a weight room in Ann Arbor? Look at the Pryor photo: Eric Lichter is creating bionic football players. Now somebody cue the opening to The Six Million Dollar Man.
