I just know that DT is one of the most overblown things discussed on these boards. Because OSU has missed on five star guys at the spot it is the end of the world and we ignore that OSU has been getting top ranked guys in the top ten of the position. Granted, they are not some of the monsters people want but OSU has done fine with this sort of line up. 

Nobody would have an issue if they got the #1 guys at these spots but at the same time I also get frustrated that people act like OSU is ending up with guys they found in the Union that were just hanging out.

Public intoxication itself is a problem. It is not behavior that an athletics department will want to condone at all. Being out and drinking is one thing, even getting drunk is not necissarily bad and part of college. You are right that resisting makes it worse. There should be punishment either way if the police had to get involved but resisting once they were there does make it more severe for sure. 

From a purely sports opinion. OSU would be better served with him playing. As it makes the win stronger, but otherwise something should happen to the guy. At least a game I would think.

I am not sure that they are acting like that at all. And not sure it is fair to go after OSU for not offering this early in the process. Even if they offered and he jumped on board it is not impossible that he could jump ship anyway. Many things are possible at the moment.

Comment 17 Feb 2017

Hope they can nab him. They need a few RBs in this class for use in the H-position and the backfield in addition to a true back or two.

Comment 17 Feb 2017

They are from last night. Three OSU and one Wisconsin.

Comment 17 Feb 2017

True, but it is Feb. Even if they offer and he commits, he could flip. I imagine that OSU will offer him.

Comment 17 Feb 2017

I would agree with that. They have tried to work them in more with the passing game but not as much as they could with the talent they are bringing in at the spot. That said, there is no shame in blocking and helping the ground or passing game, but it is nice to see the big guys get the ball. They can be deadly in the middle of the field in particular.

Comment 14 Feb 2017

Always good to have guys at those spots. A little strange RB is a need given the guys OSU puts out, but getting new talent is always a good thing. Have to imagine they will pick up a few of those guys fairly easily.

In particularly, there are some pretty good in state options (as pointed out) and OSU should be able to get a massive advantage because of that.

Comment 14 Feb 2017

And really, he was solid for much of the year. It is true that he struggled more against the top tier guys, but most guys do. When you are playing good guys it is harder. His issues seemed as much mental as anything. At times in those games he sort of gave up on himself more than he should have.

He should rebound IMO.

Comment 14 Feb 2017

Probably the Michigan game more than anything. That was an emotional roller coaster. And to see UM lose with their best chance in years was sweet.

Getting selected for the playoff was cool, but not so much the result. Other than that leading to offensive coaching changes. Which, I hope will pay off this season and beyond.

Comment 13 Feb 2017

I would expect them to be pretty good next year. With the experience but the secondary is inexperienced again. Have to see how it pans out but I think they should be top four or five for sure. 

Comment 13 Feb 2017

Weber should easily have over a thousand this year. The guy runs the ball hard. If he can break a few tackles and get a consistent number of carries he should be pretty strong in there this year. I doubt he will be forgotten this year, that is for sure. If he can break a few tackles or avoid a trip here or there he could break some pretty large runs consistently too.

Comment 10 Feb 2017

Yeah, but they underachieved badly this past year for the talent. They have a fairly clear path to the playoffs many years with the schedule. But they always blow it. I am fine with that but it is a little funny. Plus the media and such always seems to want them to be relevant.
 

Comment 10 Feb 2017

Its a little strange to me that this affects accridation. Not that something bad should not happen to the school, but that speaks more to academic rigor and so on than anything.

Comment 07 Feb 2017

He deserves credit for a fair bit of the game, but he is also one of the big reasons they lost. They ran out with a lead and then stalled out. It is not his fault the line started to not do as well and the running game dried up, but at the same time he took some bad sacks at bad times that took them out of that game.

There is no question that he deserves a fair bit of the blame.

Comment 07 Feb 2017

The quality of player they are getting in the secondary and defensive line in particularly are pretty insane. Have to have one of the most talented, on paper, secondaries in football. They have to prove themselves year after year though because so much experience is lost each year.

Comment 06 Feb 2017

I would imagine that it would be about the same number as last year. Pending what sort of early departures happen too. 

Comment 06 Feb 2017

He is also a big reason why they lost. The defense did not play well at the end, but they were in field goal range and he took a sake. The goal should be to stay in close range. Not sure about the play call but he has to be better than that. Making it an 11 point game gives more of a cushion at that point in the game that even with how the Pats were moving would have likely been a bridge too far. 

Comment 03 Feb 2017

I thought Weber played well. Seems like there are some fans that want to bench him because he did not look like junior carlos hyde or Zeke or similar.

Seemed he played pretty well too me. I imagine he will be better this year with more touches. They seemed to forget he was there at times.
