Who would you rather have play RECEIVER for the Buckeyes - Christian Kirk or Torrance Gibson.  I know that Gibson would be coming in with the goal of playing QB, just curious as to pure ability as a WR.

I don't think you can dismiss Auburn that quickly.  They may lose less games, but they also play a much tougher schedule.  They won a national championship 4 years ago and were in the title game last year...they have a strong argument that they give the best chance of winning, though I think our path to the playoffs and coach should tip the odds in our favor.  Gus did lead them to a national championship game in his first year.  They will be a strong team going forward.

Tennessee is a dumpster fire though.

It doesn't matter how weak their OOC schedule is...that's the point. Their in conference schedule is much harder.

They played: Texas A&M, LSU, Ole Miss, LSU and Auburn.  And, their marquee OOC was VaTech...which happens to be the same one that we are playing this year.  VaTech is also better than Cal.

Compare that to us playing: Wisconsin and Northwestern (TTUN, despite the close game, was just too crappy to list on here).  We didn't play MSU until the conference championship.

Or maybe it had something to do with the performance at the Opening.  Hilliard performed very well and Cornell performed okay.  Cornell wasn't dominating OLs there, but I think he is also considered "raw" and is ranked based on his high ceiling.  Actual performance probably accounts for more of a recruit's ranking the closer they get to college so it makes sense the more polished player rises and the raw player falls.

Is it just me or does Josh Sweat not look very interested in the Buckeye hat?  I get the feeling that he is one player that only the coaches will be able effectively to recruit.

He isn't just physically a man among boys, I feel like his like a grown man in every way.  Doesn't seem interested in twitter, the recruiting game or basing his decision off of other recruits.  Luckily, we have one of the best defensive line coach (especially in terms of putting talent in the NFL) and I feel like that is what Sweat will care about more than anything.  

Comment 11 Jul 2014

I think we have a better chance at Sweat than we do Kirk.  I feel like Sweat loves LJ and values substantive coaching.

Our receivers haven't exactly looked dominant lately and our QB recruiting hasn't been very strong (from a ranking perspective) either.  A&M/UCLA has had much better QB recruiting and passing games.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

In the past you've also said that Gibson, if he decided to play receiver, would be the best receiver in the country.  So out of pure curiosity, if Gibson decided to play receiver how would he stack up next to Kirk?

Comment 07 Jul 2014

I I'm sure I'll get blasted for this, but I think there is an elite coach in AA - Greg Mattison.  I'm cautiously optimistic about Ash, but if I could have had my pick to fill that position, Greg Mattison would have been towards the top of the list.  He did pretty well last time he was teamed up with Urban too...

Hoke on the other hand has no business being the head coach of a historically great program.

Those bastards didn't even cover the commitments today!

Comment 02 Jul 2014

Is his personality more like

(a) Kawhi Leonard - ultra talented guy who is shy so doesn't like talking to the media and being in the public and would prefer to just work on his game (or maybe Lynch is a better comparison) or

(b) James Harisson - complete badass with an edge/strong dislike of the media that is more attributed to being annoyed by the attention than embarassed by it?

I get the impresison he is more of a Kawhi type., but just curious.  Seems like if it's (a) that's a better fit for LJ and if (b) that would be a better fit for Vrabel.

Tyler, how do you feel when people, who you have never met, ask you about being "under the radar" during an online interview about your commitment to the football program with the largest fan base in the country?

Comment 01 Jul 2014

Is this guy just extremely quiet?  Not very much in the way of updates from his visit (other than Birm saying it was positive).  No he doesn't have twitter, but maybe doesn't do many interviews?

Comment 30 Jun 2014

Please make sure to post a picture of your license with the tweet so he knows you are the same age.  Actually, please use an attractive girl's license of your age (instead of your license) so he actually is persuaded by the tweet.

Comment 24 Jun 2014

I feel like if the last two to commit were Beckner (2nd to last to commit) and Sweat (last to commit) we'd take 6.  I think even with 5 DLs on board the staff wouldn't say no to Sweat.

Comment 24 Jun 2014

Possible?  Sure.  Likely?  No.   But, I'd be thrilled with two or three of them.

Comment 23 Jun 2014

Yes, I know . I wasn't saying that's why we were in it.  I just assumed he was predicted to go to Mizzou b/c that was his hometown school.  Did a double take and realized he is from Illinois.
