Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I'm not a fan of this yet.  It seems like it's being rubbed in our collective faces.  Maybe I'm being too sensitive to the 2006 beat down or something.  How does Lil' Animal feel when he's up on campus and runs into Harvin hanging out in the Woody?  That won't be awkward?  Are those guys real big NFL stars anyway?  A few are known to some, but outside of Cleveland and Florida who can tell you who Haden is?  Anyone outside of Chicago who Wright is?  What's the draw if not?

I would rather have them come to our campus and help with recruits than to go back to gainsville and help them recruit.  Maybe that is just me?

I agree I'm not too excited about a bunch or orange and blue in the Woody but the optimist side of me thinks that any current NFL player in which the younger generation can learn from can/might be a good thing.

I'm guessing Meyer/Marotti won't let them wear anything florida.  This does get me more excited for Marotti, though as it's obvious that he is an incredibly quality coach.

Didn't Fox tweet that Meyer contacted some if not all former Ohio State players?  Does it really matter what college or what team they played for?  They are currently in the nfl and bring an nfl work ethic and intensity to the gym, our boys will see what "real" training is like.

I see no problem with them coming to tOSU to workout assuming Urban would never let them badmouth his current players or tOSU.

Ya I have no problem with it, especially since it should probably piss off florida fans a lot more than osu fans.

Does Troy Smith or Alex Boone piss their pants if they go back to the WHAC and see Jarvis Moss?

I have no problem with it. Maybe some of our guys will learn how to get faster. Watch this: Marotti was there when they were doing this (shown in the video) and it obviously worked for them.

That video is about as beautiful as it can get for the team shown not wearing scarlet and gray.  

 

I can't wait to see our team in this type of shape.

I know and I totally agree

Over the last couple weeks, I have seen several players tweet about how sore they are.  I assume it is related to the new workout program.

I have also read accounts that when they put on the "Friday Night Lights" events that players were sent home for being disrespectful towards UofF...This leads me to believe that the same rules would apply here. Also, when any athlete gets the chance to work out at a world class facility (for free) you would think they would check their ego at the door.

Gator fans, you mad?

If it means OSU players will be learning their workout intensity levels by watching a massive group of NFL'ers - both former Gators and former Buckeyes- then I'm all for it. Love my Bucks, but the work ethic and intensity level just hasn't been there for years. The talent often didnt live up to the potential.

At the end of the day, if it's beneficial for our players, then it's all good.  The former players aren't going to be dicks - that's mostly the Florida fans that are that way. 

Class of 2010.

I think were the shoe on the other foot and say Tressel was the one who "retired" and was coaching at another school all of the sudden, I wouldn't blame the players for returning the favor to a coach they respected. Now as a fan, I would be a little pissed/bitter. I would be curious as to what former players of OSU would do. Speaking only for myself I believe I would feel like I betrayed my alma mater in some way, even though I would be helping someone I respected a great deal. I dunno.

OMIGOD TIM TEBOW IS COMING TO COLUMBUS TO WORK OUT!!! RELEASE THE PRESS!!!!

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.
