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.

I've got an idea, let's cut down on the number of commercials in a supposedly AMATEUR sport that isn't supposed to generate MONEY.  What if we only ran a handful of commercials, just to pay for the TV budget, and ran games as non-profits since these are AMATEUR student-athletes after all.  Without all the commercial breaks games would be a lot shorter, fans would be happier, and players would be paid the same they're being paid now.

No offense to Tyjon Lindsey but if I had to choose between him and Jaylin Harris I'd much rather have Harris on the team.  Ohio State has had plentiful small guys (WIlson, Samuel, Jalin Marshall) and we have more in the pipe (Demario McCall, JK Dobbins).

What this team has been needing is more big guys at receiver, we need size players to compliment our speed players.  So I'm stoked out Tyjon Lindsey, I'm really excited to see an Ohio State 6'5" wide out in the red zone going against small college DBs
