Does Bert count due to his B1G past? If so, it would have to be Bert. He would probably go around the block picking insult fights with the neighborhood's four-year olds and not realize he is losing.

If any Buckeye RBs are having a bad day, they should just watch Wyatt Davis' highlight film. That should put a smile right on their faces.

I saw an interview with Mr. Davis and he was struck me as intelligent, articulate, reserved and a really nice guy. Then I saw his game film. Wow! That man is a monster on the gridiron. He really takes aggression and power to another level. The kid plays not to the wistle, but beyond. On several plays he opened a lane for his RB wide enough to drive a tractor through. Now imagine him with 3-4 years of strength training with Marotti (the best in the Business) and refining under Warriner and Stud (also the best in the Business). That seems as close to a lock for a 1st round pick as one can get. What a HUGE addition to our already awesome class!

Agree, great post. Due to the numbers crunch, I do not think we will finish no. 1 technically, but if you regard this class strictly by quality rather than quantity, we should have a great chance of landing one of the best, if not THE best, classes of this era. It feels unreal.

That is an awesome chart. Thanks for posting. Probably the most telling stat is "years since last natty". A cool stat might have been "number of NFL draftees in last two years". Really shows you how incredible Ohio State is, both its tradition and more importantly right now.

That would be excellent! And it actually appears the most realistic development. Man, what a class this is turning out to be.

It is a fact. One of the reasons security and police want no part of them. Several Russian offenders were identified by local news as they raided English fans on the promenade and the same hooligans later were identified again by the local news in the stadium. Why does no one intervene? Will these guys be allowed to continue pummeling fans into a coma for as long as Russia is in the Cup?

Ecstatic about Tate joining the Good Guys! I hope Grimes will consider joining the Buckeyes soon. But to me, Okudah committing this summer would be the biggest key. I can imagine that the Texas chain is like a row of dominos. If Okudah commits soon, this could solidify Dobbins and help bring Browning into the fold. If that happens, then perhaps even Wilson and hines would not be longshots anymore ...

I am thinking along similar lines. If our O-Line plays well and we can manage to control the game with a good ground attack, that would go a long way. On the defensive side, I am thinking that pressure on their QB is essential. Considering how our DEs might stack up with their O-Line, getting pressure seems like it should be quite possible. My gut feeling is that we more than show up for this one.
