As far as I'm concerned, Dobbins can go. I don't like kids giving coaching staff ultimatums in public. If you didn't want to be on this team, you shouldn't have committed back when. And if you're scared of competition, then go to a mediocre team where you will get ton of touches without having to win the job, and you can watch OSU compete for a title every year from your living room.

Everybody makes mistakes that they regret and I'm sure Dunn is regretting this with his whole life. Sometimes certain situations get the best of us, but at the end of the day, there is absolutely no excuse AT ALL under ANY circumstances where it is ok to lay your hand on a woman. Some mistakes are just life altering and we can't turn back time and get a do-over. 

This was his shot at making an impact and possibly landing in the NFL as a role player. Now he's got an incredible uphill journey to get his life back on track, let alone regain his career. I feel bad for her and I feel bad for him. 

Hope they can both move on from this stronger and wiser.

I'm not a fan of what Dobbins said. It sounds like to me that he is afraid of competition. 

He should have said "When I committed before OSU already had another RB, but he wasn't that good, so I had a better chance of beating him out. Now, I'm not ok with having two RB, because the other guy might be better than me"

I get it and I don't blame him. If he feels he can walk into another program and have an easier time to get on the field, great, power to him. He has to do what is right for him, but don't say you're not afraid of competition when that is exactly why you're going to look elsewhere when another superstar joins the team.

much bigger deal brining his family on their own dime to Columbus than going to Auburn that is a few hour drive at the most. 

this is looking good so far

Comment 01 May 2016

There is no way he got an evaluation of anything in the first 3 rounds, and he got bad counsel. This happens every year. And now look what happened? you guys still believe this wasn't a STUPID business decision? He now has a long shot to have a long NFL career

a lesson to all student athletes, if you're a dick and no one likes you and have no leadership skills, you go from 1st round QB pick to slipping to the 4th+

Comment 29 Apr 2016

When you release your top 4 one week before you commit to somewhere else, and when reports have come out that he's playing games, and then 305 basically says his recruitment will continue (which is expected anyway), I think you show signs of being a head case. 

Release top 4, indicate you are going to ND, one week later commit to Maryland, and then open up your recruitment......yeah....call it what you want, but I rather not get involved in this recruitment.

I'm sure he doesn't care what I think, like almost all players never care what anyone on here thinks, so we should just shut down all forum topics where people comment on actual situations then. 

I'm glad he loves football! I'm sure all players who make the decision to jump early and see the career cut short will continue to like football from their living room couch. NFL and frankly NCAA IS A BUSINESS. And he made a stupid BUSINESS decision. I didn't really like going to class either, but like most of us, we have to go to class and graduate so we can make a good living. Most people would consider dropping out of school or not going to college for people my generation as a stupid decision. 

Nothing is guaranteed in life, and his success or staying injury free if he would have stayed wouldn't be guaranteed either, but you can only make the best decision based on information you have weighing all the risks and rewards. He will have an exponentially harder time making the team and staying part of the team as a 6th or 7th round pick. If you think that is a smart decision because he didn't like school, that's fine, that is your opinion and I respect that. In my opinion, he made a stupid business decision in a highly competitive business environment. 

Comment 29 Apr 2016

Regardless of his reasons, it was a stupid decision. 

He would have been the #1 receiver on this team going into 2016, and if he played well, he could have elevated his game to 2-3 round pick, with more money and security. At this point, he'd be lucky to get drafted before round 6. 

Comment 02 Feb 2016

I think the one big prospect that got away, that all the coaches, players and fans really thought was in was Jackson. 

They were really hoping he'd round out this stellar class, and be the missing link that is still void in this class. I feel like after that the coaches has to scramble, make up ground, and were somewhat knocked off their game after we lost him to Auburn, even if they won't admit it. 

Imagine this class with Antwuan Jackson. Not only would we be #1 class in the nation with all sites, but we would literally have zero weaknesses. Oh well. Off to next year and hopefully some of the young kids step up big, and we are able to land a few blue chip DTs next year that can contribute early as well.

I'm sure it was posted before, but can someone recap the announcement times? is it an event or just on twitter for Hamlin/Fuller? 

Thanks in advance

Comment 25 Jan 2016

This is actually more disappointing than usual. 

It's one thing to have a superstar recruit choose another school for reasons they are all entitled to....it's another to have a superstar recruit want to come and play for you, but we reject him. 

Comment 25 Jan 2016

Can someone please explain to me why we didn't have the slots? 

We lost Jeff Greene, Michael Thomas and Jalin Marshal with Corey Smith gone after next year

We added Mack, Victor and McCall......and whiffed on a DT, so we can push that slot to next year. If Sam Bruce takes Corey Smith's spot next year, and opens that up for DTs, I just don't get how we couldn't make room for this kid. 

This guy is a dynamo. Him with McCall, Mack, Victor, Williams, Haussman, Farrell and Haskins would have made one hell of an offense for years to come. 

uhhhhh

Comment 25 Jan 2016

I just can't believe Urban would deny this kid. 

We lost Marshal, Samuel is leaving next year, Dontre might never recover, and we only have McCall as HB

We are actually quite thin at that position, and Corey Smith is gone after next year, so I don't see his position taking any slots after one year. I just don't know, it's confusing to me why Urban wouldn't take this kid, but that's why he gets paid the big bucks I guess

hmmmm
