Not very often I get to read a story that mentions two small towns(Stryker and Bryan) I grew up in.

Will be interesting to see if the Bucks come out in a 3 - 3 - 5 to start the game. Have either of the outside linebackers move up to add a pass rusher depending on offensive alignment. OSU doesnt have to change their D, but makes you wonder if they'll adjust to have an extra DB on the field to help take away crossing patterns.

I'm very interested to see where Campbell finds his playing time. Another athlete that can spread the field. Just haven't heard many comments about him. 

Any insight on how he's doing?

It's very disappointing, because the young men know better. But that's all I am going to say about it. VA Tech still has to worry about JT/12 Gauge, Elliot, Samuel, Miller, Thomas, and Vannett being on the field at the same time! Oh, and don't forget about Campbell who could possibly play H or WR. Defensively, losing Bosa really will hurt. However, young guys will have to prove their worth. I'm sure Urban will be all over the D line now to make sure they are ready. Slade, Holmes, Hubbard, and Lewis will get all the chances they need to prove they belong. Hubbard could even have a break out, welcome go college football type of game! I can't wait for the season to start!

I would really like to know how a recruits parent would react to this. Plus, any perspective they have. I can't think of the recruits name, but he is a defensive line man who just visited with his family last week I believe. They then went to Michigan and his mom said she loved Michigan and all they had to offer. But, wasn't impressed with OSU. First, I take all of it with a grain of salt. However, I have to wonder if listening to an interview like that will change parents opinions about a person and the program they are running.

I listened to the interview, and yes, it was horrible! Harbaugh just wasn't interested at all. He was asked open ended questions and didn't answer with anything more than a yes or no. Colin is definitely an aquired taste. However, he didn't ask any loaded questions and was generally trying to get Jim to answer simple questions.

I would much rather read an update about a player who will be suiting up for The Ohio State University here than any other website. The only issue I see with reporting any type of personal injury/illness would be if it's life threatening. And that's based on parents well-being and privacy. I know the writers on this site refrain from posting anything negative about the young men they cover, and enjoy the insight I get concerning Buckeye sports!

I really believe Meyer could give each qb a quarter and the offense wouldn't skip a beat. Now, there's the whole rhythm argument, but each qb has ran a prolific offense under Meyer. By the 4th Meyer could hand overy the reigns to Collier and have a 30 pt cushion. Will this happen, no. But, it would be neat to see. I think it would be more realistic during the opening schedule. Once Big 10 play starts Meyer will start who he deems worthy.
Comment 08 Feb 2015
I would not be surprised with this. If the Bucks can make a solid run in the Big 10 tourney and make an Elite 8 run in the dance it would be very possible. I still believe Okafor will go number one depending on who has the pick. But, it's a guard driven league and Russell's game keeps improving on a nightly basis. If he wouldn't have gotten cramps against the Hoosiers, tonights triple double would have been his second.
Comment 04 Feb 2015
The offensive line haul this year is unreal. Shortest is 6'4". The bucks are going to form a mountain range in a couple years. Feder has the length to be a stud tackle. 6'9"! This will be fun to watch! Can't wait!
