I don't know if we've used all our scholarships, however, redshirts do count towards the scholarship count. 

Comment 13 Apr 2014

So the Glenville trio, Damon Webb, Kyle Berger, Gareon Conley, Jayme Thompson, Bri'onte Dunn, and Armani Reeves don't count? And, I'm sure I am missing a lot of names too.

Comment 11 Apr 2014

I had scouted him after his collegiate days, so he may have changed mechanics to get over bigger lineman. I am 99% positive it was dyslexia. The only reason I won't claim 100% is because I did not hear it directly from him. And, like I said before, I loved watching him play at Ball St., just at that particular time in his career he was not very good. In fact, against the team I was scouting for, he ended up passing for 48%, 1 TD, and 1 INT. He was cut immediately after.

Comment 11 Apr 2014

He overcompensated for his short stature by using an awkward throwing motion. He also had a tendency to try to run before his receivers had a chance to get open. I don't have my scouting reports anymore as they are the property of a team (not NFL or collegiate). It was also a couple years ago, so I don't remember the exact report. I  mostly just remember him being very bad and easily beatable, which I hated to have to say that about him because I loved watching him in college.

edit: I also had heard similar things about his ability to pick up a playbook, although that can't be scouted through game film. I believe he also was dyslexic, which kills a QB.

Comment 11 Apr 2014

I had to do some scouting on Davis. He couldn't make it in the Arena Football League. While good at Ball St., he was horrible after. Not the best player to base this off of.

Comment 11 Apr 2014

I also love reading about the many options. I think it all comes down to the offensive line. If it is as good as I think it will be, we should be in for quite a show.

Comment 09 Apr 2014

The only teams it could be are: Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan (if you count out PSU because of Birm). I think we can all come to a consensus on who it would be...

 

*edit- Johnblair, you beat me to the punch!

Comment 09 Apr 2014

Exactly. I am sure this is not abnormal for tOSU or other universities. I don't have any evidence, but I would be very surprised if this was not common.

Comment 21 Mar 2014

Marc Loving, Aaron Craft, Deshaun Thomas, Jared Sullinger, William Buford, and Jon Diebler all saw pretty significant playing time (top 7/8 of rotation) as freshman since the Thad 5. I'm sure I'm missing some, as those are just off the top of my head.

Comment 17 Mar 2014

Is it me, or did the end of the article note a 4-2 record, then come back with an 8-1 record? Did I miss something?

Ohio State has a 4-2 record against UD. Thad Matta has a 8-1 record against UD.

 

edit: Sorry for repeating people. I guess I shouldn't leave a page up, wait a half an hour, then read and comment...

Comment 28 Feb 2014

After seeing Keita Bates-Diop in person, i think he definitely falls into the "scorer" column.

Comment 20 Feb 2014

Hyde has a slight image issue with the suspension, so I think that may knock him to the 2nd or 3rd round, which would be an absolute STEAL!! Think Roby will get a pass on his defense this year considering how down the unit was as a whole, and get drafted in the first round.

Just pure speculation, but I think once the teams interview Carlos, that will relieve the teams of all concerns regarding character. The kid went through and learned a lot from that experience.

Comment 20 Feb 2014

Let me clear a few things up about this. The commentators last night were wrong when they said 10 technical free throws were shot. Just because a player shoots FT's with no rebounders along the lane does not necessarily make them technical FT's. Amir received a common foul (typical personal foul) for pushing #32 (hence why he shot the last FT's). Ross received two common fouls for shoving #45 and #1 (his second common foul in the dead ball period resulted in his ejection). tOSU fouled on three separate occasions resulting in 6 total FT's for NW. #45 had a common foul on Amir when he shoved him out of bounds. His second foul, which was a flagrant foul, was when he threw a clenched fist at Amir. NW fouled twice resulting in 4 FT's for the Buckeyes. Since tOSU fouled last, NW gets the ball after all FT's are attempted. Even though the ref's took a long time, they got it correct. Technically, there were no "technical" free throws attempted. There were 8 "common foul" free throws and 2 "flagrant foul" free throws.

And no, I'm not a referee. Just a HS coach.

Comment 20 Feb 2014

There is actually a rule in place for NCAA head coaches and no more than one assistant coach (for Ohio High school, it is only the HC - no assistants) to enter the court during a fight/scrum/melee to control his team and allow the referees to sort out the situation. It is a very good rule, which I have seen taken advantage of almost every time (both HS and college) and have never seen the fight escalate with the coach on the court. I understand you are mainly referring to Matta's back, but he did what he had to do.

Comment 12 Feb 2014

Sorry to go off topic, but I am just curious on your thoughts on Minster's new head coach? Has he lived (or will he) up to expectations?
