Now I understand that all Ohio State football fans are anxiously awaiting an announcement as to whom will be the starting quarterback when the Buckeyes kick it off against Oregon State on Sept. 1. And then, we are also deeply invested in seeing how the running back rotation will work itself out.
However, I am here to tell you that there is no OSU football player that you should care about more than Robert Landers.
Did Robert Landers (@roblanders96) enter Ohio Stadium with a golden football filled with gushers to give out? Of course he did. pic.twitter.com/atxd4sgAir— Colin Hass-Hill (@chasshill) April 14, 2018
Not only did the somewhat “vertical challenged” rising-junior defensive lineman roll into The Horseshoe for today’s spring game with what appears to be a football of gold, but apparently, it has a secret compartment for him to stash some snacks, just in case he needs a “burst” of energy.
His snack of choice? Gushers. However, being the kind and fun-loving soul that he is, Big Bob passed out some of his favorite fruit snacks to children lined up at the stadium’s entrance.
The 6’1, 283-pounder ends the spring as one of the DTs fighting for a starting spot. He’s only had a total of 26 tackles in his two years at Ohio State, but 12.5 of those were for a loss. And, who can forget what might have been against Indiana last fall?
Even tho it was called back, Robert Landers should get 100 Buckeye leafs for the effort on this Fat Guy Touchdown. pic.twitter.com/OJRZEkLfo3— Jim Weber (@JimMWeber) September 1, 2017
So, Big Bob Landers, we salute you, and look forward to what shenanigans you’ve got planned for the fall!
What’s the best thing about Big Bob Landers?
