I also enjoyed the growing rivalry with Wiscy, but the new divisional alignment has pretty much murdered it in the crib.  But hey, now we get to play Rutgers and Maryland each year!  Forever, and ever, every stinking year, until we're all dead, or the next round of Jim Delaney likes TV revenue.

Sorry if I've made the same comment a couple of times, but defensive speed is not just how fast you run a straight line in shorts.  It is also about football smarts.  That means understanding your responsibilities within the scheme you play, recognizing the formation across from you, and getting to where you need to be, fast.  I don't have to see their 40 times to know last year's defense was sloooooooooow.

Probably true.  The only thing that I immediately think of that might have changed is that the "tentative" tag has been removed from his upcoming visit.

Absolutely give credit where it's due.  Franklin has just made Urban's job just that much tougher.  My guess is Urban is up to the task.  I am looking forward to some good games with PSU going forward, although I'll be happy with more like last year's as well.

Birm!  Where are you?  There's a thread that's in trouble and needs your help!

Suh wasn't much bigger than Washington when he was at Nebraska, and he was one of the most dominant DTs I can recall watching.  288, like LJ says, is big enough to play the position provided that you have the speed, agility, and technique to make up for it.  If not, you're gonna get pushed around.

Thanks as usual for the recruiting update. In your earlier mock class you had Hilliard penciled in. Now you write it is "more likely" he ends up elsewhere. What's changed? And who do you think is leading? 

Comment 08 Apr 2014

Salty chips aside for a moment --and each returning defender from last year's team ought to be strapped to a King-sized bag of them-- anger and embarrassment will only get you so far.  Being pissed off about last year doesn't automatically make you better next year.  I just hope the team is focused, and practicing hard, and I hope that Ash and Fickell can work together a lot better than Fickell and Withers did.

You've stated on a couple of occasions how important it is that Ohio State sign at least eight or nine Ohio prospects. I wonder if you could elaborate on why you think that is so important, and who you think those eight/nine guys might be this year.

Not sure what the deal is with Daniels. The legacy of an OSU football player, grew up in Ohio playing football, has an early offer, and he names Auburn his leader?  What gives?

Hey Birm,

I notice our old buddy Miles has just recently crystal-balled Austin Clark to Tennessee.  Would you agree that the Vols are the school to beat, and if so, how hard will it be to beat them?

Eric Waters led Mizzou TEs in receptions last year with 8 catches for 72 yards.  The next TE on the list, Culkin, had one catch all year.  Jeff Heuermann, by contrast, had 26 receptions for 466 yards.
