Is that the white wall from game of thrones?
The SEC is turning young men into millionaires in the NFL. The BIG just got a great student his scholarship revoked so he drops out if college.
I have no problem with Urban maximising our 85 scholarships to give the most players a shot at the NFL and to give the team the best shot at greatness.
Also Warren Ball and Bri'onte Dunn are candidates to be managed out, I wonder if at least one of them will transfer given EZE and Curtis Samuel have a lock on playing time and there will only be more talented young RBs joining the team in the future.
We also have 5 3-star DBs in the 2015 class. I wouldn't be surprised if one or two of them decommit.
I do t like it but managing scholarships is part of the game these days.
That line is going to be a fortress.
Demetrius Knox, Jamarco Jones, Marcelys Jones, Kyle Trout, Matthew Burrell, Kevin Feder, Grant Schmidt, and now Brandon Bowen.
That's 7 4-star offensive linemen and Bowen, who the team went after hard, in 2 years. Whoever the running back is in 2017 will just be jogging on the way to the end zone because the line is just going to push the opposing team out of the stadium.
Urban is known for electric offended so its been surprising that only EZE and vertical pass plays ever seemed to get taken to the house. That changed yesterday. The reason people fear Urban's hback or "percey harvin" position is the threat of the big play. Corey smith and dontre Wilson got big gains, sure. But yesterday we saw what that position should really be - every time jalin had the ball in his hands he wasn't looking for a 10 yard gain, he was looking for the end zone. He looked to break every play and actually broke them a number of times.
Jalin might be that missing piece that takes the Bucs from big 10 champion to national champion.
Rivals had O'Connor with 4 stars as the 102nd best player in the country and the 12th best offensive tackle which was significantly higher than Taylor Decker.
and that makes it real frightening, right? We have only seen a glimpse into what real top-tier recruiting classes mean for the buckeyes, we know there's another couple classes behind them in 2014 and 2015 for sure. But then when you project to 2016-2017 people think many of the nation's best talent is coming form Ohio and Ohio State would clearly be in the lead for those players.
So you start by saying what we've accomplished this year is due to one top-5 class. Then you add in 2 more top-5 classes. Now you start imaging every class is like 2013 because we are owning the Ohio pipeline... we could be talking about the first true Ohio State Dynasty in college football.
_uck Michigan. Destroy their spirits, steal their recruits, get their coach fired, and kill their bowl dreams.
Get trashed Michigan.
What's up with Damon Webb? Are they saving him for a red shirt or is he just progressing slowly? Given his talent I kinda' expected him to force his way onto the field over Reeves and Conley in reserve duty by this point like Kwon has.
After almost single handedly losing the game last week Jalin almost single handedly won the game this week. Let's hope it was just growing pains and the jalin we saw today is what we'll get every game!
The use of recreational drugs alone should not end a talented person's professional career. Noah Spence has the talent to be in the NFL. A permanent ban on competition is far too strong a penalty for this misdeed. A year is long enough, let Noah play.
Just keep winning and we'll be in the playoffs. The committee has said they rank conference champions strongly which means there won't be 2 SEC teams, it will be either Alabama or Miss State even if both win out. And TCU has no one left on their schedule so I have zero doubt that if the buckeyes beat a ranked Wisconsin in the big 10 title game they will easily vault over TCU - you saw how easily we jumped Baylor after playing the 25th ranked team.
So even without any more chaos I am absolutely sure the buckeyes are 3 wins away from the playoffs.
Wow Torrance Gibson, Jerome baker, and now matt burnell - that is some serious firepower we added in the last 4 weeks!
I have to agree with Ross and kyle. I feel like the only thing keeping Grant on the field is the locker room politics of a 5-star senior who is popular with the guys.
When I see 100+ yard rushers the first person I look at is the MLB.
So you're telling me the worst conference in college football has 4 teams in the top 25 and 2 in the top 10?
These polls aren't helping ESPiN's narrative.
Marshall almost single handedly lost that game. One player turning the ball over 3 times is inexcusable.
I like the kids upside and hate the jerks that tweeted garbage to him, but that doesn't excuse his mistakes and he is now on the road to becomming labeled a liability.
I think our Dline has been great against the run and pass. But I do think that the linebackers, while definitely improved from the last couple years, are still below the OSU silver bullet standard against the run.
What just happened was some...
Best chant in any sport of any team of all time. Period.
Our interior 3 struggle a lot with talented DTs. Its tough on any running back, quarterback, or OC to look good when there is constant pressure up the middle.
Knoxy, if you still read 11W get in shape son, buckeye nation needs more talent to step up on the o line in 2015!
