Good to hear. Recruiting is like a roller coaster the lasts forever.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

Yep. Does not mean he will come here but loves that Larry Johnson was honest with him. The relationship has been mended and the bucks are in it for sure.

What happened to damage the relationship in the first place?

m5987usus's picture

I'm not gonna go into details about it because it wouldn't be right if it's not public knowledge, it would be unfair to all of them. But Tim fixed it, Like Larry told him he should if they want OSU to recruit him, and now it's good.

O-H!

It was Ohio State not being sure Tim was committed 100-percent to his academics.

Sounds like our staff.  He didn't have a grade problem, but it was something he could improve on.  They gave him a goal to show he's willing to work, he was up to the task, and now they really want him.

Take this with a grain of salt. I know 305 posts everything he sees on Bucknuts here, but this wasn't reported by them. Tweeted by some unknown Mike Rocksted.

I don't mean to rub this in Hayze's face by any means, but I think this is a good opportunity to learn that we shouldn't disregard the little guys in the recruiting journalism field. The field is notorious for the job fluctuation(Alex leaving us, Derek Young leaving us, Kyle Rowland leaving even though he isn't recruiting, and Jordan Wagner leaving us) and because of that new guys are required to fill the vacated positions.

If we're going to liken this to professional sports, 11w is still one of the "small market" teams in the journalism world and because of that we will unfortunately lose our all stars to the New Yorks, Bostons, and LAs of the world(Scout, Rivals, 247).

Just a friendly reminder that as a community we should be accepting of the little guys, as all it takes is a job vacancy for them to get the "call up."

Class of 2016. Go Bucks!

Definitely 11w is a little fish in a big pond but they are the best site for Ohio State football and recruiting. Birm is the man, Rockstedt is really good too. I know he's new but I've followed him for a while on twitter and MOTSAG.

305Buck, delete this thread before you embarass yourself further. Discredited source spreading misinformation.

Per Alex, the relationship didn't need mending in the first place. Grades.....

I'm not a discredited source actually. I work for Men of the Scarlet and Gray. I talked to someone very close with Tim. I do not appreciate the disrespect.

Question, not knocking Alex but what makes his sources better than Michael's? You don't know and I don't know, all I know is Michael covers recruiting for the Buckeyes and he does a good job at it, you may want to check out this site sometime.

Thank you 305. I have great respect for Alex no doubt. All I did was tweet out what I was told today by a reliable source Close to the situation. That is it.

O-H!

sarasotabcg's picture

305 claims to have a 247 membership. If you do too, head on over and take it up with Alex. He sent a follow up to his initial post re: Settle, and no, it doesn't corroborate a mended relationship with OSU.

dv away! (as if it mattered)

There is nothing to "take up" with Alex. I'm not just going to bash Alex like that, he might have different sources on this situation. I'm nt bashing anyone.

sarasotabcg's picture

you said you wanted an apology. You know where to get it from and it's not me. Come on down.

-10 HS
Jbuckham94's picture

To be a messenger, you have to be sent by someone to personally deliver a message. I highly doubt Alex Gleitman personally asked you to head over to his old 11w stomping grounds and throw some mud on Mike's name. What you did certainly classifies under the "unnecessary" category and wasn't cool my dude. You could apologize, but I doubt you will.

As for the fact that Mike isn't on a big name site, that doesn't mean he isn't a good reporter or doesn't know what he's talking about. Journalism is all about making that first step. If you remember, our very own Miles Joseph and Derek Young were on a small site they had started before being picked up by 11w. That doesn't mean they were reporting lies before they were hired by a big name site.

I remember back in the day when Alex was the unknown reporter and people called his work "discredited information". Yet he seemed to always be in the know. I trust reporters until they prove they can't be trusted. not the other way around.

Another thing, when the news that Ohio State stopped recruiting Settle first came out, Alex said it was off the field related. When people started questioning him about what off the field problem, he said it wasn't grades. Is he backtracking now? He said he didn't want to tell what it was, but it wasn't grades or the kid asking for money, Hmm you think grade issues are something serious enough to keep away from paying customers?

BD,

 

Your initials should be reversed.

Listen, here is the reason why I give you crap on the board.

  1.  you try to insert yourself into the process:  Posting on other fanboards to trick them?  Who does this crap?  this should be your new avatar...

     

  2. you find pleasure in riling people up by posting stupid crap.  Your forum post about leaving was pretty stupid.  Who does this crap?  are you a 13 year old girl?
  3. When the media and other fanbases talk about those moron buckeye fans, they are looking square at you.
  4. I am not merely a tOSU fan, but an alumn.  I poured my heart and soul (and a couple of beers) while I was there...tOSU is more than a football team to me.
  5. you are a troll.

Is arguing about sources on paywalled sites the new way of comparing dick sizes?

In all honesty, this seems childish to be arguing like this. Both men, Mike and Alex, basically said the same thing. The relationship between OSU and Settle is now very good again. The only difference is Alex said it didn't need mending, while Mike did.

One last thing: to say you're "just the messenger" when you come on here and "discredit" someone makes you look pretty bad. If you can't even stand up for yourself when you call someone out like that, don't call him out in the first place.

That is all. Carry on.

I value all of the sources of information that contribute here, even if that information is not always consistent. So what if it was grades or something else, as long as Tim Settle and the Buckeyes are back on track, I assume the best for both sides. And for Michael the Rockstedt man, thanks for contributing.
