Let our enemies be too overconfident in September, because we know no one will underrate us in January!
BARON BROWNING is the #1 playing on my recruiting board. In the next 2 years we should lose 3-4 linebackers to graduation/NFL and I'd feel a lot better about the depth there with another 5-star in the 2017 class.
Clark is a true Buckeye, I think it would send a horrible signal to the team, and to alumni who think Ohio State means more than just a transactional few years, to turn your back on a guy the character of Clark by giving him a "grey shirt"
Not to mention that 3 stars for a kicker is an extremely high rating! A 3-star kicker is basically a 5-star kicker.
And I think it's a self-reinforcing principle. You create a structured culture at Ohio State that makes kids that come from a structured background want to join your program, kids that didn't come from that background naturally don't like it, so then your team is all people that want a structured program thus making the culture structured which in turn attracts the next wave of such recruits...
It's to Ubran Meyer's credit that he doesn't pursue talented kids that are trouble-makers. If you read between the lines of Brim's reporting on the Sam Bruce offer it appeared as if the coaching staff said "he's a top 100 player, he's a perfect fit to be an H-back weapon, but we don't know if he's got a 'Zach Boren' mentality so we're going to pass." We'll never know for sure but if so it takes a lot of balls to turn down a great player to maintain a specific culture
you must be a lot of fun to watch games with....
"grrr don't celebrate that touchdown that just gave us the lead because the score doesn't matter until the game is over"
Ohio State is becoming an all-star team! hahaha
Can you count suckas? If you can count you can see Urban's got 85 solders and there ain't a single hard core soldier in the team up north.
CAN YOU DIG IT!!!!
Rivals rankings strongly favor the # of recruits over the quality of the recruits in the class which is silly. I much prefer the 247 rankings, better balanced to the quality of the class not just the quantity of commits.
3 years ago I never ever would have believed I'd want to read a daily article about recruiting high schoolers on twitter. Brim you did an amazing job, exceeded every expectation. Thanks for all the great content and opening our eyes to the excitement of recruiting!
Recruiting is a dirty business sometimes and there's no doubt Sibley suffered the ill effects of that business due to no fault of his own. Ohio State runs a big boy program and sometimes tough decisions have to be made for the good of the program.
But I'm rooting for Sibley, he seems like a excellent stand-up person who got put in a bad situation and is now doing his best to make the most of it. Nothing but class from the kid and hope he has an amazing career at Pitt.
neither can I, we just have too many amazing QBs - what a great time to be at Ohio State
Tyjon Lindsey is gonna be a Buckeye
Not the conversation for a happy day like today but with this coaching staff I doubt we'll have a problem "making room." There's a lot of team rules to violate, a lot of guys that can transfer...
What WR prospect doesn't want to join a depth chart that says "Barrett OR Burrow OR Martell OR Clark?"
Perfect quote THIS is why I love Urban. He focuses on the important things.
OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING!!!!
Tate Martel may be the most perfect "Urban Meyer" recruit we've seen yet. I'm so excited!
This is the most mind-blowing commitment I've ever seen. I literally thought there was no way he'd join such a crowded QB room! I'm so surprised and so happy!
Dantonio certainly has figured out how to get in Urban's head. In the last 2 years we've been a mixture of power run and air-it-out but against Michigan State Urban just throws out the playbook of everything we do well and institutes a move-the-pocket and run-the-QB offense that we hadn't seen in a single game in the last 2 years. Dantonio psyches Urban out.
