It's going to be so awesome.
Yes, Meyer rolled out the red carpet for Harris a few months ago at the Schott, when the crowd was chanting his name. Clearly, it's one of those cases where Meyer thought he could get Harris and when he didn't commit, he needed to get a plan B (Weber). It's strange cause the best choice for Harris was clearly OSU. Bama is stacked at RB, plus we just knocked them off. I think Kareem Walker saw the opening and took it. But I'm with you, and Bill Green, this might not be over just yet. I could still see LJ, Damien, or Weber being our 2014 back.
Keep in mind, we didn't get a commit at tailback last year. Samuel is converted. Ball and Dunn aren't Meyer's guys. I think Meyer needed to cover his bases and took Weber because he needed to. Harris was the clear #1 choice. He's never stopped recruiting Harris and he won't because he needs depth at tailback.
I'm just saying, that Harris guy... he gone.
I wouldn't say he's gone. Recruiting is a process, and nothing is a done deal until they sign that letter. He's decommitted once already, he tweeted the day before his commitment that he still didn't know where he was going, and for most of the last 6 months his favorite has been OSU.
Comprehensive breakdown SC. A refreshing break from the either black or white reviews. I think it's also fair to add, that the Beck hire was probably more influenced by Ed Warriner than anything else. And with Warriner moving into the drivers seat as primary play caller, I think the offense will probably be influenced more by him, than Beck. Wondering if you have anything on Ed and his personal philosophy?
so does he.....at 1:09min
Jason, I agree with raising the sticker count, I would even argue for a higher requirements to post a thread. Say 100 to 250 helmet stickers. On par, you could have a "black stripe" break in period where newbies have to earn stickers, can't receive them, and are identified by a black stripe on their avatar.
And was it Spencer who had that crazy one handed catch, that they didn't even review!?!?!? Shades of Devin Smith's one hander last year.
The Bucks got bashed early in the season for the strength of schedule. But as it turned out, not so much.... # of Bowl teams played this season: Oregon -6, Florida St. -9, Alabama -10, Ohio State -10. Go Bucks!!
Yeah, the Selection Committee to the Buckeyes!
C'mon Nick we have far too many "rankings" that don't make any sense. Otherwise a good wrap up.
This is a political move by Kelly.
I'd say Patrick just lost his black stripe. Nice work Mr. Maks.

A. First Positive
1. The management team consists of the Associate Athletic Director, medical review offi cer, drug testing coordinator,

Roby sucks.....er.....ahhhhh.....ohhh crap. I meant.... never question the coaches, OK!! Except after they leave.... to a division 12 school. And then it becomes painfully obvious that our pass scheme kept us out of the national championship game. Fook. We'll it's not like any of last years linebackers are making NFL highlights!! at least we got that......yeah....er.....ahhhh.....ohhh crap.
My problem with Herman is he seems like one of those guys who can't go off script.
Exactly. Meyer keeps saying it's one on one, however where on the field that matchup takes place is the issue. And isn't an unbalanced defense an offensive coordinators dream? Remember our last 3 games last year? Teams dinked and dunked the hell out of us. Even more disturbing is when Meyer claims the O-line isn't as bad as they seem. Oh fuck man. If they were out manned, you were out coached!!
In the presser, Urban reiterates how the offense must win the one on one match ups when facing a bear style defense. What worries me and can only lead to speculation, is he never really addresses the play calling. Dave Biddle's question "What were you most disappointed with (offensively)?" Urban says not making the one on one plays. Coaches will never call other coaches out but I hope Herman got an earful from Meyer. Sometimes you have to adapt and scrap the game plan. Herman really showed his hubris, I hope for the last time.
What's not really being talked about is the recovery time of this surgery. Basically it's 9-12 months. The big question is will he be ready for next year?!?!?
Yup, same problem, but this has nothing to do with Braxton so I really don't think we should be talking about it.
"Ohio State finished finished 25-10 after bowing out"
This isn't Michigan State buddy.
Ah yes, Ye Olde Mill..
"entitled", excellent description KR.
not really. I'd say in the same way you have a choice to kill yourself.
I might not agree with you on this.... haven't really looked into it like yourself, but I will say you should absolutely have the choice to wear one or not.
