I do not mean to bring a negative vibe to this thread and I will admit that I do not do twitter. Those tweets I read above raise a alarm because it looks like Baker is going somewhere else and our recruits are trying to talk him out of it. I'm sure I'm just out of the loop at a young 34,and I'm sure I am not understanding it all. I know we are the solid favorites but I read somewhere on the "internet" that he was going to Florida and these tweets had me pissing my panties. Somebody talk me off the ledge. I have stated since day one I thought Baker had the most NFL talent over anyone in Ohio this recruiting cycle.

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

Two thoughts

1. He's going to Ohio State.

2. I'm 34.  There is no 'young 34'.  We old.

Edit- you downvoters effing suck.  Unnecessary. 

The postgame show is brought to you by... Christ, I can't find it. The hell with it...

OMG. SMH at you whipper-snappers.

@ Groveport: I'm not getting that vibe at all. I think you're just paranoid. Relax dude. Urban has momentum, now.  You weren't one of the fans freaking out back in May were you?

Nope I wasnt one of the freaker outters. I actually had a lot of fun with the SoapDroppers of the World back in April and May. Hopefully it was the alcohol that gave me the negative vibe last night. Or maybe it was the kush that had me peeking out my window. Either way I have said from day 1 that I think Baker is the real prize in Ohio this year. I remember a camp last  year in Columbus where he dominated. He dominated kids a whole class ahead of him and it wasnt close. Kid could be a legitimate NFL RB or LB he is that good of an athlete. Knowing how good he is and my lack of knowing how twitter works on top of the mind altering substances had me quite  nervous. Thanks guys for not only making me feel like an old man but for helping Baker commit to tOSU.

At an old 20, I can say that I am not personally too big on Twitter either, but what I can tell you from a peer's perspective of theirs, this isn't a matter of him going elsewhere and them pathetically trying to keep him home (e.g., Chris Clark "Why not _ichigan?" This is more so a case where a kid is so quiet about his recruitment, that when he does make a remark about the boys showing some love (after the Burrow and Green tweets), the rest of these enthusiastic guys hop on board to show him the love that was a huge part for each of them joining. There's probably going to be a lot more of this going on as the guys work at bringing in more of the nation's top talent.

tl;dr version: They are kids trying to get more talent to join the family, that's all!!

And happy birthday to Freedom!

I talk with Baker a lot and We spoke yesterday about the "love" he was getting from Justin and Jashon and etc..I did ask him if he had told them where he was going and he said, "nope." So they are just recruiting him and he loves it.  He replied with an "lol yea" when I texted him saying "wow your getting recruited hard haha."

He has not told them where he is going. So they are just recruiting him for the heck of it.

O-H!

Why does he get destroyed for this?  Its not malicious. Its not douche baggy.  It is a bit needy and I think he needs some cuddling, but get real.  Down vote city?

I love how the video stops for the guys to call out the girl doing the walk of shame.....she had classic JBF hair too with the rats nest on the back of her head, haha.  

It's one thing to do the walk of shame, being called out while doing it is a whole other level of shame.  Haha! I miss college sometimes.  

Go Bucks!

Love it...Hilliard and Cornell right to work, along with some of the other commits.

Also liked how Baker seemed to be only retweeting the things said by the Elite15 boys.  Probably looking a little to into that, but still think he's all Buckeye!

You can tell the effect that Hilliard and Cornell had on the other commits. Bc before I didn't ever really hear about green or burrow really tweeting to other top guys to come to OSU. So you can tell that they have taken the class over and they are rubbing off on the other commits too.

I love how the 'dope' comment is the new 'thing'... Freaking hilarious

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

I have kind of a taking-the-temperature-of-the-room question.  Just how bad is it to tweet recruits?  Many on this site have denounced it on any level and under all circumstances.  Meanwhile, you have so many major recruits that expect and relish being "shown the love" on Twitter.  And they ask that Buckeye Nation, Bama Nation, Longhorn Nation, etc., etc. does the same for other top recruits and their buddies.  Is it really a bad thing when the recruit seeks it out?

And, of course, not all recruits want this type of attention.  And I understand that the circumstances and nature of the tweeting make a big difference.  

I understand why some people think it is creepy to tweet recruits at all.  I was and may still be one of them.  I have a Twitter account but I don't tweet and will never tweet a recruit.  But I am starting to come around on this and realizing that it might not always be objectionable.

I don't think there's much more to be said when the class' QB calls upon Buckeye Nation to do it.

It just seems that Damien Harris is tweeting, retweeting, and basically kicking out too many positive vibes. It would be surprising if he isn't a Buckeye.

That, and the "Urban Meyer can't develop running backs thing" being dead and buried, of course. Thank you, El Guapo.

Anyone have a link to a video that's got Baker playing LB, everyone I've seen has been strictly offense?

If we land Baker we're going to have an embarrassment of riches at LB.  Just sickening.

He'd be the cherry on top at this point, so I hope he's not intimidated by the depth chart.

The only time I tweeted a recruit was to Hand when he was deciding. I was very polite; and just showed him a link to that UM blog (of all places) that mentioned how a lot of their recent recruits were going to jump ship (which turned out to be false). I'd like to think I had a small part in him spurning them haha. 

If the recruits are asking to be shown the love by fans, then its no big deal.

I think you're being modest. You should call Urban up and get on the staff as a recruiting specialist.

He followed me also out the blue, and thanked me for my service (my profile picture is of me in uniform) he's a great kid

Was one of my favorite recruits in the class before he committed and I like him more and more every day. Looks like he'll be a great leader for this class. And I also thought it was cool that he was giving away his jackets from other schools to their fans on twitter
