I thought tsun counts acouple wins over Ann Arbor High School, plus several wins over various downtown athletic clubs and other groups that were not universities. I understand there were not many teams to play in the 1800s, but I still don't think tsun should take credit for what was essentially a club team. Tsun may still claim more victories than anyone else, but the total would drop significantly.

What is Harbaugh's plan? Has he just given up on this class so he can recruit 35 4-star players in the next cycle with a ton of top JUCO recruits?

Comment 30 Jan 2015

In previous recruiting cycles, the Staff was high on some recruits but immediately shut down recruiting after untold events. Can you divulge some of those events now? 

(Even leaving out names would still shed light on the recruiting process, the crazy characters involved, and Staff's assessments of off-the-field matters)

Which kids who will not be Buckeyes--because they followed their hearts to another school or didn't land a Buckeye offer--should we still root for?

Comment 06 Jan 2015

Good point, Hove.  The guy was with the Ducks for 20 years as OC, HC and AD so it's natural for him to be a bit of an Oregon homer.  

Comment 06 Jan 2015

With a small clas this year, plus a few players departing, I see Harbaugh getting a couple classes of 30 recruits like Tennesee and A&M.  The shear volume will get him to a top 10 class. With a couple 5-star recruits, he could get a top 3 class in 2016 and 2017. I can see him picking up several Juco players to get the team up to his standards faster.

Good point.  Also, Slade was a Larry Johnson Sr recruit. Slade did not seem to be [high] on OSU's board until LJ Sr brought him in. If we get an OC who has been recruiting someone all season for another team, there's a chance for a signing day flip by someone not on our radar. In cases like this, though, the flips are 3-star players that a newly hired OSU coach believes to be a diamond in the rough rather than a high profile 4* or 5* Recruit who changes a commitment due to the HC, OC, or DC leaving.

Where is the team staying? There will be alumni parties there too.  The Oregon alumni are at the Gaylord, so not a fun place for Buckeyes to stay.

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Where is Herman this week? Anywhere near Houston? (Because UH fired coach today after 3 years that were not terrible, so they must have someone in the wings)

Comment 08 Dec 2014

His parents are on record saying it was really hard saying no to Jimbo Fischer of nearby FSU.

Comment 08 Dec 2014

How does it work with Harris and Weber? Did Coaches stall Weber by saying you must visit before you can accept, trying to buy tim, and now come to the conclusion that they would/should take Weber because Harris is definitley out?

Comment 06 Dec 2014

Italy, Ireland, Germany, Mexico, China etc may have been the "old country for our parents, but Ohio State is the "old country" for our kids!

A connection to Alex Anzelone would make this post better.

Interesting story on the "source" from CBS 2 years ago. He and his brother are Ole Miss grads who run sports gossip sites for click based ad revenues.  Their specialty might be coaching rumors.

Thought thos thread was going to be about kickoffs out of bounds. That is a senseless penalty and field position deficit that needs to stop. Have we had a single game without one?

Comment 17 Nov 2014

Of the 13 voters in the ESPN power poll, Desmond Howard ranks Ohio State lowest at 8, followed by SEC homers Pollack and Schlabach who have Ohio State at 7. Everyone else has the Buckeyes ranked higher. It is so predictable, like Drew Sharp and John Wilner in the AP.
