Did anyone else immediately call up visions of the locker rooms from their own sports teams past?  Talking cold concrete floors, grimy showers, lint filled fans and that ever so distinctive odor....  Or was that just me?  Slightly different ambiance to the Bucks new get up....

Thanks for all the comments, everyone.  Looks like we're coming up empty.  He's not responding via twitter....  May be missing his big break.

Wow.  Really great, Birm.  Terrific insights from the coach of a now powerhouse program in AZ.  Really speaks well of the respect for tOSU to get such focused time from him.  Hats off for the depth of coverage.  Ok - jump in, Christian.  Let's go!

Big day today, buckeyes.  Let this be a rocket launch in T minus 3 hours and counting.

The tone of this comment by Justin also drops a hint that it's likely not 'bama.  Implies that he's signing up to be a recruiter to help land that top notch class.  I think we'd all agree that Saban recruits ok on his own, for better or worse.  Yes, Urb's awesome too, btw.  tOSU, baby!!!

edit:  "I'm excited to go out and get a class together that will hopefully be a top-three class nationally."

Can I make a separate, but related, suggestion?  I have a $20 bill in hand and would like to send it directly to 11W in exchange for a really sweet 4-6, A to B t-shirt from the dry goods section.  Can we make this happen?

And on a side note, and with no disrespect at all to Mr. Cooper, how awesome is it to hear "those were guys on a mission" and "one thing is for sure, they were getting after it."  Seems to be the theme from many of these recruiting reports.  Tickets in hand for the opener against Navy and counting down the minutes.  Go Bucks!

Guapo's vision and uncanny ability to use his blockers perfectly are what sets him apart, in my opinion.  His athletic abilities are obvious.  But, I'm convinced it's what he's got going on above the shoulder pads that make him a steal as a draft choice.

Comment 10 Feb 2014

As much as we'd all be thrilled to have another big time player in this class....  I'm inclined to say best of luck elsewhere, MM.  I'll take a 3 star who'd give anything to be a Buckeye (like Slade committing before visiting) over a 5 star who's not got every ounce committed to bleeding S&G.

Comment 02 Feb 2014

So, I do keep checking back and the anticipation is killin me!  What's the latest on the day's visits?  The silence is deafening.  (You have spoiled us, Birm!)

Comment 18 Jan 2014

Has anyone else wondered if those nike gloves brax puts on when the weather dips below maybe 50 degrees causes him to grip the ball differently and lose all sorts of accuracy?  Whenever I see those gloves, I assume it'll be an off day in the passing game.

Comment 05 Jan 2014

To the point about our WR productivity, for an 11W expert who can look at the film, I'd be very curious to know to what degree was the problem WRs not getting open versus Brax just not having the time (or vision) to find them.  I've wondered this over the last several games as the passing has become increasingly inefficient.  Is this a Brax issue or a WR issue?  

Comment 04 Jan 2014

We shouldn't be happy with the D.  It's not silver bullet caliber.  With Roby and Spence out versus a really good offense, I was fearful we'd give up 50+.  We did yield a boatload of yards and a ton of them on screens.  Hate that.  BUT - the D actually put us in the position to win this thing.  Some huge stops in the 2nd and 3rd (and at the end) kept us in it.  But when the O goes three and out a bunch and turnovers leave the D with a short field, not sure the major "blame" goes to the D.  Doesn't mean I'm happy with the D, though.
