Presenting: Ohio Bobcats MACwood Squares

MACwood Squares OHIO

MACwood Squares is our summer reading series on the best athletes in Mid-American Conference sports history. This week features OHIO. Looking for your MAC school? Consult our schedule for other teams and please submit your nominees as well.

My, my, OHIO had some outstanding players. A little bit on each of the nine after the jump.

Frank Baumholtz (basketball, baseball)
Not sure if he'd have made it on either sport alone, but by being an All-American on the hardwood and a 1,000-career-hit man in the big leagues, the earliest Bobcats superstar makes it in.

Cleve Bryant (football)
Did he make Todd Snyder or did Snyder make him? Maybe in a parallel universe Snyder and Bryant can share a square, but there are no other squares to spare for Snyder. The tie goes to the quarterback.

Dave Jamerson (basketball)
It's worth throwing in their all-time scorer. Just 'cause.

Ellen Herman (volleyball)
The best volleyball player in the MAC ever? Seems reasonable.

Mike Schmidt (baseball)
And the best baseball player in the MAC ever? Without a doubt, and as perhaps the greatest third baseman in history, he's the center square.

Caroline Mast (women's basketball)
Then you have the singular face of OHIO women's hoops.

Kalvin McRae (football)
And here's your all-time rusher who led the school to a long-awaited MAC East title.

Gary Trent (basketball)
Maybe Shaq was really the "Trent of the NBA" and we've always had this backwards.

Dave Zastudil (football)
And it ends with a punter, per policy.

Thus concludes OHIO's week on MACwood Squares. Next week will be Temple football; it will be brief and a nice little respite for this rip-roaring fun series.
