Watch Rashard Mendenhall help take down # 1 ranked Ohio State Nov. 10 of 2007.

Only problem is.... you gotta have Direct TV and the HD package:banging:! (maybe you can see it on cable too I don't know)

It is on channel 220 Big Ten Network HD Tues. May 13th 8am. (set your DVRs!)

Rashard Mendenhalls stats against the #3 ranked run defense ware 26 carries for 88yds 0td w/ 3.4ypc.

Not to shabby for a 3 runningback committee (if you count the QB who ran 16 times) the other RB Daniel Dufrene carried 8 times.

One other nugget I found looking at his stats was the Rose Bowl game against USC. Although his team lost , Mendenhall ran 17 times for 155yds and 1td against the #2 ranked run defense! Now 1 of those runs went for 79 yds and that tells me 2 things.... 1. he can break the big runs..... 2. take away that run and he still had a 4.75 yds per carry avg. against a tough OSU Def. in a huge game that is as close to nfl spotlight exposure as you can get in college. Too bad Illinois had 4 turnovers or they might have made that a game.

I think we might be looking at the next STEEL of the draft ala Big Ben dropping to us!

I will report back after watching the game to give my opinion (not that anyone should give a sh*t right? :laughing:)

I will also look out for any other college game with our draft picks involved. My DTV reciever only goes out to 13 days of programming.

GO BURGH!

PENS LOOKING FOR THE DOUBLE SWEEP!

I'm really close to Illinois so I know all about Rashard Mendenhall....I watched play a few times the last few years....I can't believe he lasted to the 23rd pick....The Steelers lucked out really....I think he won't be bust and he will be a star RB in the NFL...I'm glad he is a Steeler....

I see him on a learning curve at first.; but I believe by week 3 he is getting 8 to 10 carries and 3-4 passes a game.

Gotta remember.... NE, NYG, SD, and Jax defences are definately better than OSU and USCs defenses; but the Steelers offense is definately better than Illinois offense! It all works out to be about even.

GO BURGH!

LET"S GO PENS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, well we are going to see I hope that by that time he is splitting time about 35-65 with Parker. I would love to see both runners get around 800 yards a piece. That would be an awesome duo in my opinion.
