That would be just tragic....
Hands down their best D player, maybe the best D player in the entire conference. Huge loss if true.
Their DL has a huge advantage over our OL. This would help make it a little closer.
Definitely would be a big loss for us, he played out of his mind against Wisconsin last week (4 sacks iirc, several more pressures). That said, his backup is 5-star Noah Spence who has looked quite good--but very, very green (frequently within arm's length of the QB, but doesn't seem to have the killer instinct yet)--in his limited playing time this year. Still hoping for Simon, though. Simon's motor is unlike anyone else's on our team.
Simon's motor is unlike anyone else's in the Big Ten. He's a monster.
That being said, I'd be shocked if he didn't go tomorrow. His senior year Michigan game? He's gonna find a way to play.
I'd hate to see Simon not get to play in his last game.....They are going to have to kill him to keep him off the field...he's been limping and a bit slow to get up a few times for the last 5 games....I'm gonna bet he plays....but we haven't heard what the injury is so who knows?
I noticed he was not at the BBall game when Urban took the seniors on the court for a bit of a pep up....

if he's walking he's playing. Maybe a game time decision but if its that close they wont keep him out
My thoughts as well brother....
Simon is old school, he's gonna play. Nothing will keep him off the field.
He hasn't practiced all week???

I heard he was hurt several days ago. He is not 100%, but I will shocked if he doesn't play.
He has my respect, the same way many of the buckeyes respected Brandon Graham. A lot of wolverines probably don't realize that half of osu's team that year lined up to shake his hand after they beat us in his last game. I hope Simon plays, even if in a limited role.
Simon is one of those guys you hate to play against. Great energy, great player, great motor. It would suck for him if he couldn't play, but I wouldn't be shedding any tears.
He's been battling a leg injury for the last 5 games...we've never heard what it is, but a few plays during each game you'll see him get up a bit slow and limp a bit....
If he hasn't played all week I'm hoping it's just a "rest it" kind of thing and he'll go..
I know if he suits up, they won't keep him out of there...
97.1 the fan said he's starting.
Cant see him not playing... Kid is a beast... Hope Lewan welcomes him to the game early
With a cut block
I think we should give Braxton's helmet a little twist today, Will Gholston style.
I hope so too....Heck, I hope y'all do that 10 times....we'll take the 15 yards each time....
If an opposing star player is playing hurt, (smart) teams will always go after that weak spot. They do it to our guys as well.
I am not suggesting a total cheap shot, but don't forget, a low block in itself isn't always illegal.
Simon out according to ESPN. Big loss.
Yeah I get ya.....
