I'm going out on a (short) limb here and I'm going to predict that Jalin Marshall is going to have the biggest statistical day for a freshman (offense and special teams) against Buffalo. I just feel like he is Urban's prized secret.

Agree.  I remember on national signing day that Urban was quick to point out that if Marshall had waited to commit like the others, we would all be talking about him also.  I'm ready for some jitterbug, Devin Hester type kick off returns.  Urban knows The Marshall Plan must be kept secret at all times.

The list of freshman to lose their black stripe is a pretty solid group of young men. Buckeyes are going to be nasty going forward.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Is there a chance that staff offers the perferred walk-ons scholarships and would that affect the scholarships of 14?  Or would they maybe wait until 15?  What is the common procedure  here?

Finally, some news about Burrows!  I was pumped when he committed, hopefully he lives up to his billing.  Really pulling for this guy.
