Yes, I saw his last Hurry Up with goodbyes, just wondering where he went. And I see that has been handled below.

Been on & off here lately due to RL commitments, and this as good a place as any on 11W to ask...where did Birm go, or does the Gen Pub know that yet?

I'll hang up and listen...

A. Thad & company may have realized this kid would not "fit in" for whatever reason, or

B. NC State appealed more to the kid, either due to coaches' promises, personality, or whatever. 

I'd prefer to have kids who really want to be at OSU and want to learn from our coaches than someone who takes up a schollie and then transfers after a season or less.

 This is pretty much what happened. Not at liberty to divulge the sources, but this one smelled a little too much like a few other recent recruits who did not want to earn their stripes & wanted instant playing time. Unfortunately this seems like a trend in general, not just here. The B-ball staff has little margin for error with the few schollies they have to dish, so lessons have been learned the last few recruiting cycles.

I'm good with the 4 we have coming in, and the return of Coach Jent. Go Bucks!

Urban & his staff do so many great things for the young men in the program, but the Workplace Wednesdays & Job Fair are my personal favorites. Just another great reason to come play/study at The Ohio State University, Buckeyes are set for life!

Go Bucks!

I assume TTUN's favorable Natty odds stem from the media's continued love for Harbaugh, and the fact that OSU lost so many starters. Also the OSU schedule is just a little tougher than UM's, and of course the afore-mentioned FBI-LV conspiracy theories. I'll add to that with a layer of E$PN hyping, in order to bring in viewers for what has been a perennial disappointment in the UM football program.

Regardless, UM fan or not, anybody who watches/follows CFB still knows there is a major talent void between the Buckeyes and Skunks...

Whatever, records be damned, they get waxed on 11/26/2016 when they enter the Horseshoe for their annual flogging.

Unfortunately, I think that is exactly what the problem has been. Parents need to guide their young adults, but they also need to let them eventually make their own decisions, especially when free college is involved!

I second Birm's sentiments, and hopefully he gets it put together before the opportunity is gone.

He is just such a good dude. I know plenty of peeps that have run into him, mainly in restaurants go figure, and reports are he is always gracious & accommodating. Personally, I don't bug those guys when I see them out & about, but it does go with the territory when you are a celebrity, and there are no bigger celebrities in Columbus than the Ohio State Football players. Hope he experiences good health & much success in the NFL.
