The decision from Roderick Johnson should be coming any time now, they are saying it's down to Ohio State and Florida State. With us picking up Brady Taylor, what are the chances Johnson commit's to tOSU? I think even with picking up Taylor, he would be a great add, as he is in the ESPN 300. I believe this would also put us over the top in the Dream 14, as it is already a great recruiting class. From what I am reading on 247sports, EPSN, and Rivals that they are predicting FSU to get him. With his surprise visit I think we have a chance. You also have to love all the FSU fans already calling his commitment, and bashing OSU and Urban Meyer...they have one good season and think they run the place..ha. I am curious to see what others think about this. Thoughts?

"RJ, From STL, lived in cold overcast Ohio and beautiful Tally. No comparison. Shitty weather with Liar Liar Urban Meyer and team that lost to the team we kicked the stuffing out of (Clemson), Orrrrrr...state champs of the Florida, smoking hot girl capitol anddddddd undefeated National Champs that want you. HMMMM, I would wait to decide also, tough choice."

If he wants to play early TOSU. GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Depends on what's most important to him. One tackle spot is locked down for next year by decker. The other is up for grabs. Yes, there are a lot of bodies coming in. But you look at it this way...jones and meech are tabbed as guards. Jones is a tackle. And trout and Taylor are guys who will be interchangeable parts to fill whatever need is there. Florida state has a boatload of o lineman on the way as well. And had guys stick around they believed would depart for the draft. I don't know florida states depth situation as well as I know ours. But if playing time is his main draw, he has the chance to push his way in here. 4 spots are there for the taking, best man will fill them. If the weather is what is driving his choice, well...good luck in Tallahassee.

Orrrrrr...state champs of the Florida, 

Did not realize that being a "state champ" in college was that big of deal ... probably since TOSU has been the "state champ" in Ohio for over 90 years straight!  But since the sarcasm font was used with the accompanying sarcasm dots, I am really not sure what the heck is being said!

I love me so of them chocolate flavored sarcasm dots.  Mmmmmm... <----See?
But a more serious note to ponder for Florida State, the winner of the most recent national championship game, and the Florida championship as well...might be this:  Crowd all the heavyweights of college football in an elevator and give them height and weight according to what they have done during the BCS era...Ohio State would be a 6' 8" guy along with Alabama and a few others, and Florida State would be a "little people" guy in the corner.  Now consider the reality of this:
Crowded elevators smell way different to midgets...
Now that's some serious shit.

Before his official, I would have said all FSU. You don't know what coaches have told him or what he has told them. I would like to add him, but would have to put it at 50/50 at best. He's been high on FSU for awhile now. Would definitely take him if he wanted in though. Think possibly him and Njouku, WR/TE hybrid and call it a class. Urban has always surprised us though, so we'll see.

I read in another thread that the staff would take both Taylor and Johnson if they both wanted in.  I'm not sure Johnson will be choosing the Buckeyes, but it would be nice to add some quality depth to the OL.

I certainly hope he chooses us.  I have watched quite a bit of his game tape and am impressed.

Love the "state champs" quote from FSU.  Guess they didn't realize that UCF also went to a BCS Bowl/ won their game/ and who's only loss came by 3 points to a team who also "kicked the stuffing" out of Clemson"...
 
O-Line depth is a definite must for any program trying to compete for a National Championship, and playing time would indeed come quicker here than at FSU.  If he wants to play, he'll be #23!
 
 
Go Bucks!

Always makes me laugh when fans use the "they lost recently so don't go there" as a reason for a player not to sign with any particular school. FSU fans forget not long ago they were the joke punchline.

smoking hot girl capitol

I've been on a few college campuses throughout my years, and I stick by my claim that OSU has better looking co-eds than any other school in the nation. Our women's hockey team is hotter than nearly all Cheerleading squads. The only two I can think of are the Song Girls from USC and Oregon's cheerleaders, but Phil Knight has some sort of genetic enhancement going on up there in the Pacific Northwest, and in LA all of the girls got a nose job for their bat mitzfah and a boob job and BMW for graduation. And if they are considering co-eds like Jen Sterger as top notch, all she wasn't that great but (insert Favre joke here) was a good laugh.

ASU is definitely top 3, if not top 1

Agreed with top 3, but I'm still partial to tOSU.

Their hatred for Meyer is amusing, must be all the whoopings they took while he was in Florida... hope Urbz ruins their day yet again.....
Hard to argue the weather, this shits been brutal. One day closer to spring :)

I'm too drunk to taste this chicken

I live in Tallahassee.
He forgot to add fans that leave at half to his FSU rant.
The rest  besides the Urban bashing is about right.
The girls down here are amazing.
