The interest in more DTs is just being greedy, we aren't needy at DT.

We already have the 6th best DT in the country in Haskell Garrett and no one is talking about Jerron Cage who'se a top-250 national player in his own right.  Jerron Cage is the "other guy" and he's higher ranked than any DT in the last 4 years of recruiting.

We're fine at DT this year.  I wish Tufele all the best.  On to 2018 DT recruiting!

I think Wayne Davis or Josh Meyers is going to win the starting right guard spot this year.

With the talent Urban is recruiting you can't just "wait your turn" to start, 5-stars are going to fight for that job day 1.  So I think there's a lot of offensive linemen (and WRs too btw) who need to decide whether they want to be a starter at a place like Cincinati or be a career backup at Ohio State.

The NFL draft is the same story every year.  White defensive ends and Wide Receivers aren't "athletic and explosive" and will be busts.  Meanwhile black linebackers "don't have the instincts" (i.e. are too dumb) to succeed.  You hear this crap from ESPN all Spring, then monkey see monkey do fans repeat it on Twitter.

Then everyone gets to look real stupid for their stereotypes when Bosa, Jordy Nelson, Navarro Bowman, etc. take the field.

Keep calling out these bad takes DJ!

This is why Tyjon Lindsey needs Ohio State way more than Ohio State needed Tyjon Lindsey.  When Lindsey vacated his spot Ricky Slade saw a golden opportunity to jump into an uncrowded H-back room at the best program in the world for 5'9" 180lb playmakers.

"Hrm do I want to join the position at the program that made Philly Brown and Jalin Marshall NFL players and just made Curtis Samuel a 1,500 yard player?" Slade thought to himself "why yes, yes I do.  Thanks!"

Super low-risk signing Max Power.  Use the extra scholly to sign him this year.  If he turns into the next Mike Webber you're golden, if he never returns to pre-injury form or gets hurt again you give him a medical hardship scholarship and then use the free athletic scholarship to go fishing in the 2018 pool.

Seems very logical to me given how light we are at that position all of a sudden.

On Tyjon Lindsey - when you give someone 2 years to make a decision sometimes they over think things. Yeah there's criticisms of our WR program but that's like focusing on the trees and missing the Forrest of national championships, 1st round draft picks every year, stars who go pro after only 3 years in college, learning from urban fing meyer, a strength and conditioning program the Navy Seals have come in and studied. So yeah maybe we rotate WRS more than we should and maybe our current WR coach is average at teaching technique. But um I think you've over thought this one my friend.
