I prefer Wimbush too. Don't feel like getting him would be settling at all in regards to not taking Gibson. I'd be more than happy with either, I just don't want to miss out on a QB and this class desperately needs a leader!

Hey WeAre, I'm just gonna leave this here….

I was there, and EZE was dominant. He manhandled Curtis Grant in the circle drill to start the practice off, absolutely blew a defender out of his shoes at the end of a long run to the goal line, and if I recall correctly caught a short pass out of the backfield and ran almost the length of the field. He also looked bigger/stronger/faster than I remembered, did a beautiful job picking up a linebacker blitz on one play and I personally wouldn't be surprised to see him become the new workhorse, especially because of the diversity of things he can do while in there. He looked to be head and shoulders better than the other backs (I don't consider Curtis Samuel a running back yet) but as stated, we didn't see any of Rod Smith at all. If there was anyone to challenge Eli Apple for the "who had the best practice" crown, it would have been him.

He does this after every home run he hits, and I love it more each time

Comment 05 Apr 2014

I will never, ever consider State Penn a rival to OSU. I want no association with their psychotic, backwards world they live in and I believe we have good secondary rivalries already established with Wisconsin and somewhat with Sparty (also with Illinois traditionally, really hoping they can get it turned around)

Comment 26 Feb 2014

I totally agree, I know no one would like that notion but I wouldn't be upset with Tebow in a Browns uniform. Even if he had to play fullback, the dude knows how to win and has all of the intangibles that you can't teach. Look what he did with the Broncos. I see a similar type thing happening with Manziel in the NFL

Comment 26 Feb 2014

I mean, he could win games and all, which is the biggest of upsides if correct. The draft is merely speculation on how good a player should be, so its all speculation regardless and if the Browns think he will help them win and win often, then I say take him.

I don't like all of his off the field stuff either, but thats what it comes down to. If the staff feels he will help them win immediately they will take him at 4.

Comment 21 Feb 2014

See, this is actually really cool. I tested the same theory that there are people lurking around who really take things way too seriously, and it has been proven with the expected down vote. Pretty much the same idea behind why that guy got in trouble over nothing. People can be overly sensitive sometimes. If I had used sarcasm font my test would have been contaminated because it was too easy for people to see my comment was purely jest. Perfect spot for the "lighten up, Francis" .gif from Stripes if anyone has it!

In response to the guy getting arrested over Facebook comments….

Why does Canada ruin everything? 

Comment 20 Feb 2014

Reading this list of names brought up a feeling of nostalgia, which is cool, but odd at the same time because of the amount of time I spend on places like 11w. Seeing so many older names I am familiar with just brings back good memories, and makes me excited for how good we can be in the near future seeing as how we are out recruiting what Tress was able to do here on a consistent basis, although who knows how they will pan out in a couple years. Really cool post, I agree with almost everything on here.

Comment 19 Feb 2014

I thought the black jersey fad died out 10 years ago. Leave the uniform alone, the alternates we use are usually pretty good but this is Ohio State, the scarlet and gray. Not the black and gray. I have no problem with black trim (although I prefer the old gray shoulder stripes) but leave it at that.

Comment 19 Feb 2014

In regards to using a bat on a pitcher in a fight, I'm pretty sure I've seen on the MLB network footage of this happening around 80 years ago, so Cuba needs to get on the MLB's level

Comment 10 Feb 2014

Totally thought this was a Ramzy article with the faded color on the picture but then upon further inspection its just someone's finger obscuring part of it. Whoops.

 

This, tied together with the other article from Meechy on how his recruitment ended, paints an interesting picture of what goes on behind the scenes and what is really important in recruiting.

Comment 09 Feb 2014

I feel like a huge generator behind the first two year 'flip avalanche' was Meyer's new tenure. A lot of recruits that flipped did so because OSU was in turmoil before Urban was announced, all he did was extend an offer. The real success of his flipping ability was limited to Conley, Dodson (although this almost falls into the territory of 'new coach at OSU'), Dontre Wilson and Demetrius Knox, although Demetrius and Dontre both de-committed and did not immediately join OSU and their recruitment being described as a flip is a stretch. More like he decided on going somewhere, reconsidered and had two-three new finalists (us and UCLA and Texas Oregon and us in Dontre) and picked from them. Its hard for me to call those two 'flips'. Just my opinion.

It will be interesting to see how frequent true flips occur moving forward. Names like Shaun Crawford come to mind in this regard.

Comment 07 Feb 2014

One of the changes that has stood out to me is the color of the title bar at the top of the screen. I was so used to seeing the scarlet colored logo and bar. The black throws me off, I feel like I'm on the homepage of SB Nation all the time.

I love everything else so far, this upgrade seems to be doing its job well of making things easier/smoother (and it has that new site smell to it)

Comment 06 Feb 2014

This might be the longest buckshot of all time.

 

Great read though, welcome, Darius!
