All I know is when Craft played with Sullinger, he ran the team really well and got all the right guys the ball. I think he might actually do better in the NBA because he just has to play good D and distribute the ball to the shooters. If that 5'6" guy, Barea or whatever, played for the Mavs during their title run then Craft can.
So is the Rose Bowl only the one playoff game now? Or is the semifinal a separate game? Last year MSU was in the Rose Bowl win or lose bc we would've gone to the BCS championship if we won. It provides a great platform for a 1 loss team that misses the B1G championship to compete for something.
Thanks. Really wanna see these guys in action.
U do realize its a joke right? That was some funny ass shit. I loved the sing along part.
Total bullshit. First off, Meyer doesn't even talk about scUM because they suck. Second, he talks about beating Bama and winning championships with recruits.
All the more reason we need to get a great TE in this class. Personally we shouldve offered CJ Conrad, he looked incredible at the opening and will be another big loss from Ohio. I thought we shouldve gone after Jake Butt last class and he did pretty well for scUM last season. Need to keep these guys, especially if we have to play against them.
I have a lot of problems streaming games on my iPad. Most of the sites use flash player and it's not supported. Does anyone know a good way to get around this issue?
Peppers is definitely not taller than Webb. I'd say Webb looks a solid 6' standing next to that 6'2" purdue kid.
They should be better and the main reason's the D. They'll have 3 starting LBs from Ohio with Ryan, Bolden and Gedeon and Clark at DE. Hell, all their best payers are from Ohio but they're still not close to our level, especially with Hoke as HC. The guy doesn't wear a headset during games. I'll say they'll be 9-3 losing to OSU, MSU and ND but they could easily lose 5 if they can't run the ball again.
Harris is a beast and a burner. Scott is more power back than speed. They would complement each other but Harris stated he wants to be the only RB in his class. I think a kid with his talent shouldnt be too concerned with another RB, he's gonna have to compete for the spot regardless.
I think the 2014 class might end up being incredible. Webb, Smith, Lattimore, Hooker, McMillan, Booker, Berger, Holmes, Thompson and Slade are an awesome group. I'm excited to see all this talent playing together.
Exactly right, and it'll create an extremely competitive culture within the group, leading to higher production.
It's been stated you really wanted an offer from the Buckeyes specifically. First, is that true? If so, why? And second, what coaches and players have you developed relationships with so far?
I think Cornell could easily move inside like Washington. Take Fullwood at DE and try to get one of Wilkins, settle or galimore for DT. That would be a solid dline haul.
I've always thought Hubbard would end up at either DE or TE. He's 6'6" and about as athletic as they come. With the talent we're getting at LB and DE, the coaches can afford to use his ability at a position of need. I think the coaches knew it and that's why they have only gone after a few elite TEs.
They'll all rise from the exposure with the talent they have. A lot of the guys got hurt last year so that effected thier rankings also.
That's why Meyer makes these guys earn the offers. It builds a solid foundation of %100 committed kids and he can go after national talent that may not be as loyal with these guys on board already. The more i hear about behind the scenes in recruiting, the more I see that Meyers an absolute master at getting the right guys in the end.
It's a win for us regardless if he goes to bama or OSU. It shows recruits the elite schools and will get other top talent on campus. There's a group of schools all the elite recruits want to have in their top lists and it's like free advertising.
I didn't believe it at first but it's so true. These kids commit and go all over the place. I've never seen so many kids decommiting and not just once in a lot of cases. Meyers psychology in recruiting makes more and more sense seeing things unfold. Making kids camp to get offers or commitable ones weeds out the "free trip" recruits and shows reciprocation on both ends.
That sucks I didn't know Gene's not writing anymore. I absolutely loved his updates with the videos and lists of visitors. Gene provided an incredible service and I appreciate his effort over the years. Now as far as the 11w staff, this is THE BEST site for anything OSU hands down! Woodshed should be taken out to one.
^^^^thank you! We wouldnt even of made the tournament if not for Matta. He knew playing great D was the only chance for this team to win games.
He's done an incredible job at OSU coaching and recruiting. You must not remember OSU bball before Matta came on the scene. He's had 20+ wins in every season, took us to 4 "sweet 16s" in a row, made several final fours and played for a national title. Not to mention, he'd have a ring from that game if not for a Florida team, that happened to be one of the best in the last decade.
I think unless it's a guy like roundtree, we're probably done at DB. With ward committing we're pushing the limit.
We're done at DB. We have Apple, Conley, lattimore, Webb, Smith and Hooker all with freshman eligibility. Add Dean, Green and Ward, and we're set til next class.
