At least we aren't that team up north. Granted they have 5 commits (1 kicker) to our 2, but they lost two huge commits in 5 stars George Campbell and Damien Harris. The offseason would be so much harder to take if they still had those two commits.

Like I said in the another earlier comment and post about this "slow start" subject... some fans are clearly in the 5 stages of grief. Case in point ... "At lease we aren't that team up north" aka Stage 3 - Bargaining.

Nope. Just basic glass half full, big picture thinking.

A basic glass, half full of Don Julio, and all of my recruiting fears fade away.

Geese another thread about our slow recruiting start. Seems like people are going to keep making these 


We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

Honestly I think we get Gibson, Harris, Kirk, Drew Richmond (many forget him), Hilliard, JF Thomas, Deberry, Clark and Taylor.


Those would just add onto the people that seem to be for sure coming (Baker, Kilby, Van Jefferson, Dre'mont Jones, Fullwood, Burrell, Mcculough). For me, all those plus Jamel Dean and Glover-Williams would be solid.

Life is easier if you just deal with reality. It is a slow start. It is what it is. You guys will be fine in the end. Things will pick up.

Im stealing this from Bucknuts, but this makes me feel better about the slow start.

Urban at Florida and how many commits he had on May 8th of that year.

2006-1 commit, finished 2nd

2007-1 commit (Aaron Hernandez), finished 1st.

2008-1 commit, finished 10th

2009-2 commits, finished 18th

2010-9 commits, finished 1st

Yeah but the people he recruited to Florida sucked, remember? That's why Will Muschamp did so poorly.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

Recruiting has also changed a ton in the past 5 years, to where recruiting happens a lot earlier in the game now

I am not in denial because OSU doesn't have a problem.  It's a slow start for sure, but you can only have 5 stages if you are denying something that is true ie; OSU can no longer recruit
