08:30 AM ET 12.16 | From the sounds of things, it's too bad we won't get the chance to see Rod Smith in the Sugar Bowl. Ohio State always uses part of bowl practice to give the younger players a chance to shine as the veterans step to the sidelines. This year, the star of what the Buckeyes call showtime won't be on the field at the Sugar Bowl. But it sounds like Ohio State may have to find a spot for him next season. "Somehow, some way, he will have the football," senior cornerback Devon Torrence said. Smith, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound back from Indiana, was the second-highest ranked player in Ohio State's 2010 recruiting class according to Rivals.com.

Just another power running back in the system whos time to shine will come next fall. Ohio State does'nt rebuild it reloads. They will have a dual combo of strength and speed in the backfield and with Pryor having 3 full years as a starter under his belt the Buckeyes should field another top5 team and make a run for the Big 10 championship and the BCS Championship.

"BIG10 speed", now that's what I'm talking about!!!! LOL.

You are the textbook example of an idiotic buckeye fan. All teams have then admittedly, but your single mindedness is both naive and rediculous. If he is so great why isn't he playing then? Its not like Herron is anything special.

Not too much. I like baseball but college football is no question my favorite. I'm here when the MLB threads are slow. How's things?
