Is it working?  Seems like people are sending questions in but there haven't been any responses. Hmm...

I can't send my question in. Maybe they can still read it.
Ok so you stated we can take 21-23 recruits in the 2014 class. Right now we are at 13 of 14 scholarship players before attrition. I think Shazier and Roby are gone so that's 2 more spots that are open so we're at 16 open spots. How do you think we'll get 5-8 more players in (via attrition)? The 21-23 number seems way too high.

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

I think it's safe to say that quite a few guys are going to be leaving/transferring after this year when they realize they can't cut it at OSU.  I would like to think the staff wouldn't force them out, but they might have to gently show them the writing on the wall.  There a definitely quite a few guys from the 2011 & 2012 classes that I think aren't going to stand a chance at OSU.  That's just my honest opinion though.  I think you're downplaying how much attrition there is going to be with the talent we are bringing in now under Urban.

Unrelated, but I love the Bill O'Reilly/Howard Stern reference at the top. At least I'm assuming that's what it is, minus the profanity.

I got a kick out of the O'Reilly reference, too - that clip is hilarious.

The 11W Premium Chat was fantastic, Urban provided some really spectacular insight.

I was in the 11w Gold (500-1000 stickers) chat yesterday. We got to talk with a guy who did some electrical work at the WHAC last year. He had quite a bit of insight on what he thinks Urban will do offensively this year. Also, we got his thoughts on a few surprise recruits that he believes may flip. Overall a great chat and very insightful!
