Letting it out.

Yes, I am one of those people.  I wish summer away after a month because I get the fever, which may be a bit early this year thanks to the triple digit temperatures.   I really can't wait for vegetable soup. Beer. Chili. Brats. Artichoke Dip. More beer. Chips and dips. C...

Projecting the 2013 Class

Hey all. I've been asked a lot of "Who do you think will commit next." and "Who do you see in the class?" type questions. Thought I'd throw together a quick mock class to answer these questions. Remember these are MY opinions. Quarterback (1): J.T. Barrett, Wichita Fall...

Thanks, Karen

The 2006-2007 school year, my freshman year at Ohio State, was Karen Holbrook's last year as president of the university. I quickly learned as an incoming freshman that Dr. Holbrook was not a popular figure on campus, mainly for her criticisms of the football culture at OSU, and in particular he...

Schadenfreude has its finest hour

I had the pleasure of witnessing the 2012 HR Derby in Kansas City last night and I have to say that the Robinson Cano exhibition was quite an experience.  For those who don't know the background of the situation or have been living under a rock Cano made a humongous gaffe when he stated tha...

The Opening

As most of us who follow recruiting know, Nike's "The Opening" football camp took place at Nike HQ in Oregon this past weekend. The event featured 150 of the best high school football talents. 148 in the class of 2013, and 2 in the class of 2014. I thought I'd make a blog to give a...

Stranger Things Have Happened, ...

This blog post is the result of some feverish ideas that randomly struck me today whilst trolling on Twitter (our finest national pastime). I am NOT saying this will happen, or that I even want it to happen, but just that it has a higher likelihood of happening than anybody is willing to admit. The ...

Ranking the 2013 Commits

I had a lot of time on my hands tonight, so I decided to find the average rating of the current Buckeye commits. For this activity, I added up the overall ranking of Buckeye commits on the "Big 4" recruiting websites (ESPN, Rivals, Scout, and 24/7), and divided the total number by 4, in or...

Last night I got a chance to speak with 2014 wide receiver Dominique Booth who camped at Ohio State this past week.  Booth had told me in a previous conversation about a month ago that the Ohio State staff assured him of an offer if he performed the way they thought he would. Booth said...

Buckeye Basketball

I read in the Dispatch where the Buckeye basketball coaching staff is comfortable with the way the recent recruiting went . Well this writer believes our coaching lacks a sense of urgency that is held by Kentucky, Duke and North Carolina and others. Our team lost a huge inside presenc...
