17.Oct.2016 Changing Body Types
Check out the change in NFL and NBA body types over the years.
Mostly I just thought this was interesting (and I think there is more at play here, like a lot of it probably depends on nutrition and advances in training). BUT, I guess my question here would be, can we deduce anything from this data in terms of OSU’s athletes? Some of our best recent players have been undersized. So in a sense we were winning games with players [who have bodies] from another century. e.g. Quizz.
Also, we often ask, “Doesn’t it seem like OSU has more injuries than other teams?”
Any chance this is due to undersized players? I personally can’t make any definitive connection, but I thought it was interesting to think about. GA complained immediately when taking the job about player size and strength.
Anyway, these body types are getting pretty insane in terms of the force they can enact on objects. It’s no wonder the rules have changed to adjust for targeting and such.
