Only the Strong Survive

Ohio State will be at or near the top of the 2006 preseason polls, but right now is not a fun time to be a member of the team. There are windsprints, drills where a player must carry a teammate 50 yards on their back, and the dreaded wheelbarrow drill. Even the speedy Ted Ginn, running for glory against rival Michigan, is not exempt. And these winter workouts start at 6 a.m. Said linebacker John Kerr: "All this is a gut-check, that's it. They want to see who's going to be able to go through pain and still perform at a high level." (some registration).
