Mark Pantoni may be the true hero in the OSU recruiting machine. His work is incredible. We are most blessed to have him on our side. Go Bucks!
One thing is certain...our coaching staff really 'gets' recruiting. With no disrespect intended, I doubt any staff in the country works harder or is more committed to recruiting than our staff at OSU. Their energy and passion are truly amazing! Go Bucks!
Such a small yet profound act of kindness and humanity! Coach Tressel will always be a special man and leader of men in my eyes. I'll always be grateful for his many outstanding contributions to OSU both on and off the field. Go Bucks!
Yes, those were the days! hahaha Go Bucks!
Lest you forget the 90's...the 1890's that is! UM kicked ass back in the day! hahaha Go Bucks!
Coach Beamer represents what is great about college football. His success as a coach and leader speaks for itself. Go Bucks!
I'm not sure how that statement was bold but will say you twisted my words. I said that "Herbie has more Buckeye blood coursing through his veins than most anyone you'll ever come across", NOT anybody.
I will say that any fan who thinks they love OSU more than Herbie, whose father also played at OSU, is laughable to me. Fans don't pay a price anywhere near what an athlete does, so comparing a fan's love to a player's love is silly far more often than not. Go Bucks!
Like several have pointed out, I think Keyshawn Johnson is indicating he will be heavily involved in the recruitment of his son and will use his experience to guide Jr. to a good decision. I thought it was cool he had not talked to Michael about OSU but clearly is very satisfied with his growth while a Buckeye.
Good luck to Jr as he works through his recruitment. Go Bucks!
After reading that article, it just seems to me the author is yet another PSU fan trying to create a rivalry with OSU. He used statistics at every turn to hi-lite Franklin and degrade Harbaugh when he could. We have one rival and it's UM. Harbaugh is THE enemy, not Franklin.
As for comparing Harbaugh and Franklin, it isn't close IMO. Harbaugh, like it or not, has got it done at every coaching stop. Trying to discredit him his pure silliness to me. Harbaugh had his team on the cusp of a Super Bowl at his most recent stop. Franklin, while getting it done on the recruiting trail, has no such accomplishments, or anything close to that, on his resume, discounting the two 4th place finishes in the SEC East! It's one thing to successfully recruit; a completely different thing to win big. Harbaugh has. Franklin hasn't.
PSU has always been a difficult place to play and good recruiting by Franklin won't make it any easier. Franklin has much to prove to me as a coach before I'll ever compare him to Harbaugh, let alone Coach Meyer. Go Bucks!
Herbie has more Buckeye blood coursing through his veins than most anyone you'll ever come across. His father was a Buckeye and Herbie/his family have probably invested more in OSU football in terms of blood, sweat, and tears than any 'fan' ever has or will.
Herbie has a job to do and it is NOT to be a representative of OSU football when he is on the air. I've yet to come across anyone whose viewpoints I share unequivocally. Herbie is no exception BUT IS a TRUE Buckeye. Go Bucks!
Thanks Birm. I was very excited when James Clark committed to OSU and felt badly for him when he was injured 2 years ago. We have not heard much of him since then, so your message on his camp and progress was certainly good news.
Best wishes to James. Hopefully his injuries are a thing of the past. Go Bucks!
I too felt sick when I heard of Noah Brown being injured like this and especially after the great transformation he has made during the last year. Best wishes to Noah on a full recovery. Go Bucks!
That's exciting news about Damon Webb though I do hate reading about Burroughs and Smith being injured. I hope Marshon Lattimore can get healthy, too, and on the field with Eric Smith. I always find myself rooting for our Glenville boys and hope the Cass Tech guys enjoy great success here at OSU as well. Go Bucks! .
Speaking of the 'old leather helmet' days, I'm sure someone from UM is an expert on the topic. That was the last time they were relevant in college football! Go Bucks!
Josh Alabi is sure a nice looking youngster, too.. Go Bucks!
FWIW, the Detroit Free Press had an article in it today that basically said that Mitchell picking UM over OSU would give Harbaugh his first head-to-head recruiting victory over Coach Meyer. As Birm stated last night, it's hard to call it a win when one team isn't involved in the 'competition.'
It's too bad Mitchell didn't have a spot at OSU. He is a very nice looking prospect. Those bastards up north deserve much less than that. Go Bucks!
That would be one short conversation for sure! HAHAHA Go Bucks!
Great point about UM NOT getting any momentum with a first game road win. In spite of what some are saying, their schedule, IMO, isn't that difficult. Any time those bastards lose is a good day for me. Go Bucks!
I'm no fan of USC either but have personally seen the damage alcohol can do to an individual and family. It isn't pretty and just believe our fan base, and humanity for that matter, ought to be above taking shots at a man while he is down. I hope Sark gets the help he needs. Go Bucks!
Let history speak to dynasties. In the meantime, the 2015 Buckeyes have yet to take the field, let alone win a single game. Go Bucks!
Divorce or not, that surely isn't in Sark's best interests to apparently be 'drunk' at a university sponsored event. I wouldn't wish ill of anyone who has an alcohol problem and hope he gets the help he may need. Go Bucks!
Congratulations to Jared Drake. Being a walk-on makes his losing that black stripe even more impressive. Go Bucks!
I am in complete agreement with you on our depth on the DL being my one concern for the year. Congratulations to Robert Landers on losing his black stripe. Hopefully he will continue to work hard and be a young man who can be counted on this year if needed. Go Bucks!
DJ...my compliments on a terrific and thoughtful read. I am confident our coaches will make the best decision for the team, going forward, but believe Cardale is the better option at QB. Cardale is a freakishly big, powerful athlete and has a skill set that is rare for a QB. I have always believed in the old adage that 'all things being equal, the bigger, stronger man wins' and that happens to be Cardale.
I am a huge fan of JT and greatly appreciate the quality of young man he is as well. I'll be very happy with either QB but just believe that Cardale brings more to the table. Go Bucks!
The story of Maurice Clarett is inspirational and one ALL young athletes ought to heed. I am very proud of Mo C for the man he has become and the efforts he has made to change his life in such a dynamic way. May Mo C be remembered for the great work he is doing and this Buckeye great continue to impact young lives everywhere he travels. Go Bucks!
