With the unexpected commit from HH, coupled with no commits since Braxton, it makes me wonder if this is more about keeping the flow from HH going because the prospects in underclasses are stellar there. Or the feelings with the coaching staff are that we arent going to be getting our current original DT targets.
I think its a double edged sword....Jones looked sick of course and had a great game, but I think it also said alot about how complete the team is and that its looking more and more like any kid good enough to get a scholarship to Ohio State who steps into that huddle could shine. That being said, I think some of the shine was taken off JT when Cardale went off.
Not trying to rally it...just asking because he is a Buckeye.
Could Pelini to Ohio State as D-Co ever be possible?
The last page of Jim Tressel's story in a way also. These Seniors carry him with them. I dont know about you guys.....but I will feel sad knowing all JT's recruits are gone. GOD BLESS THE VEST.
Oh never mind, didnt know they were available to general public
This could get some attention because its looking like the beginning of a lucrative deal for Top Athletes designing "custom shoes" exclusively for a college team. Shoes are POWERFUL in society. What a recruiting tool for the teams to have contracted superstars creating and "gifting" limited edition basketball shoes. Talk about paying your student athletes in plain site. What do you think a player could get for a 1 in 25 pairs, LeBron James pair of shoes? I bet it either gets shut down or it becomes a huge recruiting battle tool with North Carolina having custom Jordan's to lure recruits and so on.
Ohio state lost the game if not for an atrocious interception call. I love Ohio state. But we are a year or two away
Dont downvote me until November 5th 10 pm
Call me a fair weather fan but im not even watching the msu game. Its going to be a buckeye bloodbath.
Need I say more......
I don't think ESPN is so much a PR Firm as I think they are whores. They run with the cool kids and as of late its very cool to be going into the draft as an SEC. football player. If the big ten wants to be cool they need to have teams that walk the walk instead of making their "analysts" look stupid when the product they have been hyping all year turns out to lose 41-14 in the championship.
Just for a Buckeye football bright spot....Bradley Roby broke up a fourth and six to stop a comeback by the colts. Yay.
With as long as it takes to install a new defense and earn the trust of your players...I feel sad for the young guys that are on our defense because they are being led down a dead end road and if I were a top defensive recruit I would give Ohio State a big Thanks, but no thanks.
They are still ranked too high in both polls. They haven't proved anything except that they are a shell of the teams that preceded them. Luke fickle is dog shit, and Ash is never going to prove he is a good secondary coach if he has to worry about a Co defensive coordinator doing his job to make sure the DB's can focus on their jobs
I'd rather be a loser expected to lose than a loser who is SUPPOSED to be a winner
That being said, where does the "shady area" begin?
Just a question guys, but I'd like your thoughts.....
what constitutes "improper benefits" when talking about Lebron "Recruiting" for Ohio State. Could he say that he would STAY friends with anybody who came to
The... Ohio State University and became a star? Is that improper? Just from my standpoint, if a 100+millionaire was being my buddy because I played at his college of choice I might look at that as an insurance policy all its own.
MAN I HATE THE TWO HEADED QB SITUATIONS....Whatever happens, I hope whoever the starter is for Navy STAYS THE STARTER. Barring any injury or SIGNIFICANT seperation in talent. None of this back and forth where the "starting qb" is trying to keep his job every offensive series.
Picture looks like a poster for the movie disorderlies
