I really like Tony Gerdeman, one of their senior writers over there. I follow him on twitter and he's hilarious. I'll read articles that he tweets, but 11W is the only place I go to actually interact with the community like this.
2005 and 2006 were pretty lethal with names like Teddy Ginn, Santonio Holmes, Anthony Gonzales, Brian Robiskie, Beanie Wells, Antonio Pittman all surrounding T. Smith.
There was also the mid to late 90s with guys like Joey Galloway, David Boston, Terry Glenn, etc. My memory is a little hazy when it comes to specific teams back then though.
Check out some of the other camp videos that Urban has posted. Definitely remember seeing a few flashes of Jalin awesomeness in at least one or two of them.
Oh man, Raekwon with that beautiful wrap up on Bri'onte in the backfield.. Look forward to seeing that for the next few years.
Glad to hear most of the big names from this freshman class getting their stripes removed early on. Seems like a much better pace than the past few years. Really hoping to see some big things from that class this year.
That's what I was thinking. Hopefully this opens up some wiggle room to schedule a more premier opponent. UNC would've been nice, but there are far better possibilities out there.
Edit: Just saw the tweet from Jerry Emig... C'mon big money!!!
Love the behind the scenes access we get from these videos. Gets me so jacked up.
Rory has been on an absolute tear the past month or so. Gotta feel for Phil though, with the way they rushed the 18th.
Can't wait to see Rory at Augusta next April though.
I know it's still pretty early, but this year's camp definitely has a different feel to me compared to the last two years. I seem to remember a lot more blunt assessments from Urban about specific position groups and the overall state of the team; Wide Receivers and Line Backers are the first ones that come to mind.
Things just feel much more positive this year . Positive comments about the Linebackers as a group for the first time since Urban has been here. Great play from freshman, including the first 2 guys to ever start the first day of practice with the upper classmen. Even the Offensive Line - which we all know is one of the biggest concerns after losing 4 starters - seems to be garnering positive feedback from the coaches.
I just get a really good vibe from what we've heard thus far. I know it's still way early in the grand scheme of things, but I can't help but get excited thinking about the possibilities..
Breaking Bad and Buckeye football. My two favorite things. Props.
Is it just me, or did a lot of those announcer clips sound like the ones from NFL Blitz 2000 for N64 back in the day? Sweet video though. this next month can't go by fast enough.
Gotta go with Curtis Samuel. After hearing how tough he was in spring practice, I definitely like his chances.
Love seeing that big ol' smile at the end. I'd be excited if I was surrounded by all of that talent too.
I've been waiting Amir to break out since he had that dunk against Syracuse in the tourney his freshman year. Sadly, he hasn't been able to put it together to have any consistent form of success. You hit it on the head about the fundamentals. I don't care how much better he was than his competition in high school, keeping the ball secure after a rebound is day one stuff.
I'll hope to see a new and improved Amir like I have the past two years, but I'm not going to get my hopes up.
Awesome. Sounds like he wants Sweat just as bad as we do. This is the definition of the type of person/player I want repping the Scarlet and Gray.
Definitely has the potential to be - on paper, of course.
Honestly, the thing I am most excited for is the possibility of signing 3 Ohio boys at linebacker. That plus last year's haul could lead to some truly special defenses for the scarlet and gray in the next few years.
Awesome. Always great to have a kid that truly wants to be a buckeye, wants others to join him, and respects what it's all about. His insane talent is just the cherry on top.
Clicked the caniac link. Was not disappointed. Now I'm hungry, though.
If we have a top 20 defense next year, I won't care how it got there, I'll just be glad that it did. Chances we make the playoffs without that happening aren't good.
Thanks for the continued hard work, Jason.
For what it's worth, I have the same mobile scrolling issue when using chrome on my iPhone.
RIP to the poor kid that he posterized. Can't wait to see this dude knocking guys out on the field.
Me gusta El Guapo.
He probably should've stayed out of that teritory
Dang, looks like we could have a good chance at 7 or so of the top 50 guys. Not gonna get too worked up about it now since there's still a long, long ways to go before NSD 2015, but the early potential of this class has me really excited.
