PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
On Monday you were like
Now you're like
it was a big one, but its still only one commit and I think with all the news that michigan and the like have been getting about their recruiting its nice to finally get something considerable to feast on...im still hoping for more momentum so im pessimistically optimistic right now
I don't get it either. I mean how many weeks do we have left till signing day and how many more recruits will probably be in this class? There's going to be some slow periods with no commitments. That doesn't mean that Urban and Co have stopped hustling. Keep the faith fellow Buckeye enthusiasts.
I have to admit I'm almost as tired of the people calling out the sky is falling people as I am of the sky is falling people. It is summer and some people are not into the long haul. In all fairness there have been some early disappointments but we have a long road to go.
So? Disappointments happen just about every year. That's no reason to panic.
"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
I agree. But people are going to voice their disappointments. I just think people overreact to their overreaction.
That's fine. But some come off like a tantrum. You would think some would be patient after last the '13 class.
We have the best closer in the business, like Lebron said last night "I have no worries".. We finish top 5.. F*** scum
I'm saving my Carlton Banks dancing gif for a Damian Prince or Jamarco Jones commitment. But my level of excitement is about here right now:
I prefer this gif.
Who is this dancing woman?
Alison Brie from the show Community, I believe! Haven't watched much Community, but I am a fan of hers haha. ;)

Thanks fellas......here to help.
Was in a very Milton-esque mood yesterday, didn't set fire to the building though.
By the sounds of it, you look like a guy with upper management written all over him.
I got a meeting with the Bobs in 15 minutes....
They called me at home.
I was never worried or disappointed with any of the recruits. They are 17 year old kids that made the best decision for themselves, whether it was distance or their love for the coaching staff. I wish those kids the best of luck and I know we will still finish with a top 5 class. Once the season starts and we go undefeated once again, kids will be lining up to become a Buckeye. In Urban we trust, and don forget that we are THE OHIO STATE BUCKEYES! Go Bucks...

I absolutely hate threads like this.
Is there something wrong with Ohio State recruiting???? Have I missed something???

You missed the memo that Urban Meyer cannot recruit.

Many 11 Warriors missed the memo because someone forgot to attach the TPS report to it.
Yeeeeeah, I'm gonna need you to come in on Saturday now.
Kind of a random point, but has anyone checked out any FSU boards since the Jalyn Holmes commitment? They're going full on bumhurt over this one hahah.
Unfortunate, but these Southern teams should know by now that The Urbinator doesn't recruit in the atlantic and southern states for hobby, he means business.
whatever the FSU board says, which I have not read, pales in comparison to the Tennessee boards in regards to Vonn Bell.

It would be nice if people waited until after NLOI day to criticize this class, but I bet it begins again in less than a week.
Personally, when it comes to recruiting topics, I find the Pollyanna comments & threads to be just as lacking in substance and perspective as the Chicken Little comments & threads.
If I understood this post correctly then I agree whole heartedly.
This is true. Otherwise why don't we all wait until signing day to have an opinion?
Maybe I am being overly optimistic, and I will admit I was a tad worried when we were missing on some targets. However, judging by reviews such as elite 11 and the opening, I am very excites about how this class is shaping up. Not to forget that these kids have to be doing something right to grab an offer from the best damn coaching staff in the land.
Ill start to get nervous and worried about recruiting a week before NSD. No point now.
One highly rated commit and a QB with his next best offer from BC or Wake Forest won't silence those critics.
Collier's rating will increase over the course of his senior year. He will also get a lot of exposure at the Elite 11. I'm not sure how Urban and the staff evaluates players or what they're looking, but they really find some diamonds in the rough who are underrated.
It's supposed to be "5-star Friday" and we got a 3-star verbal and offered two 3-star players. What a joke. We're turning into Kentucky.
And yes, I'm kidding.
It's quiet because they have looking since flung themselves off a cliff.

Rule #1 for those that follow recruiting is you don't know what the coaches know. With that in mind best to limit oneself to being welcoming to new commits and speculating about who else or how many others may commit. When speculating sometimes attrition among current players may become a topic and it is always best to only name those who may go pro early. Being negative towards a commit or saying so-and-so should leave the program to make room for a better player is being dickish.
This is just a gif thread. The recruiting question was it's disguise. I'm fine with it, especially in June.
Hey guys & gals. Love 11W, but have you noticed how we start chewing on ourselves here every year during the mid-summer lull? Kind of like that experiment with too many rats in a box, and what it takes for them to turn on each other? For me, the frustration of waiting for the damn season to start (or even practice, damn it) gets to me every summer. Sooooo....... lets all go have an extra ale or 2 this summer. Can't wait!
