Yee haw!  Let's do it.  12 in so far (17 overall). Wilson letter is huge!  C'mon on down Bell and Clark and EzE and Johnson!

Right now for me at least...there is a 5 minute delay from when I hit send to when it hits the blog..guess I'll just watch.

There are mods that approve and deny every comment. Since this is a free site, things are kept at a PG13 level because there are kids on here, not to mention some of the recruits and their families are on here. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Should be a really exciting, and hopefully happy, morning for us all.  HAPPY NSD!

How is it possible that we have a scholarship reduction and yet one of the best classes in the country?  Urban Meyer, baby.  Makes you wonder whether Tatgate was worth it.  Of course the road we took to Meyer didn't necessarily have to go down the path of Tressel being ousted, a vacated season, suspensions, and scholarship reductions, but you've got to wonder if those emails had never surfaced and Tressel kept his job and maintained his success whether when Tressel had decided his time to quit had come whether Meyer would (a) even be available and (b) still on top like his is now.  Stupid things to wonder about on a day that could be one of the most triumphant in Ohio State football recruiting history, but there is a lot of perspective on cloud nine.

Recruited by the Nerds? I think that is pretty good. At least he has his shit together in the classroom. (reading about Duron Carter is depressing)

I had my hopes up for Duron too

I was a big fan of his at the beginning.  Still remember the vicious block he tossed on a DB/LB who I can't recall in the U-A Game.

Just woke up here (no, I'm not lazy, I'm a shift worker).  Lots of great news to see this morning!  Didn't think we'd get Bell.
Hats off to the 11W staff.  Amazing work and insight over the last few months.

Look, I love Tress and all but this closing of recruiting classes since UFM has been here really is hard not to love.
We all know the closing prowess of Tress (sarcasm) but Urbs is a beast.
Bring it Ezekial and have an early Christmas.
Woo Hoo Go Bucks

I LOVED having Jimmy T as our coach and leader. I was always very proud to be a fan of tOSU, but......
 
Urban F Meyer is THE man. He can put together a great staff, gameplan, adjust, and motivate his guys, but the recruiting is off the charts. Tress got the Buckeye lid on a lot of highly prized recruit's tables..... Urbz gets em on the dome.
 
Go BUCKS!!!!!

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

Eze is announcing at 5pm EST Today? Why so late? Why so much drama? This is tempering my excitement of Bell and Clarks announcing that their onboard!
