I agree with this sentiment. For recruits, it really is a simple question of priority. If the first priority is to become the best person and player you can be, then go to Ohio State. If you want to kick back, go somewhere else.
It breaks my heart to see Noah like this. But Noah is a strong kid, both physically and psychologically. He has the support of the greatest teammates and Coaching staff one can have. There is no question his star will rise in the 2016 season. Get well soon, Noah. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Agree with you. Brown was poised to become a very important player. It hurts to see this after all the work he put in.
Love both guys and we really cannot make a poor decision at the QB spot. Still, I wonder if Cardale's ability to blow the top off of a D isn't just what the doctor ordered against VT... Probably a foolish question, but any chance JT starts in some games, Cardale in others?
At least where TTUN is concerned, I never let the hate go to begin with. Until they die in obscurity and mediocrity, the hate will be there.
Liberal amounts of alcohol in the locker room? Sounds like a plan for success!
That's right. I was beginning to think the pundits look away when Bell is on the field. Why does it take everyone else years to see what we at OSU saw in his first year?
That's it, man.
Our honor defend
So we'll fight to the end
Well, at Rutgers he may finally not have to worry about the depth chart anymore ...
Phi, I concur with the above comments. This post is excellent, easily one of the best I have seen in a long time. I look forward to reading your assessment of the VT offense.
Anytme I even glimpse that USC logo or hear that "fight on" cry I can feel hate encroach upon me until it fills every part of my conscious mind. We have owed those dudes a serious butt-kickin' for sometime now. Maybe this year will be pay-back time.
You are right about wire-to-wire being difficult. So is repeating. But do not fear, Ohio State will do both this year.
We begin as no. 1. Now let us end as no. 1.
Agree with you fully on Perry. Still, not having Lee in the top 3?
I am not sure, but I think some rating services effectively "freeze" ratings of players with bad injuries. If they simply play less, however, I think they tend to get dropped. In Sammons' case, I think he used to be rated no. 4 in Ohio by 247.
Man, Meyer really does have an uncanny ability to find the great ones. Could be (another) rating hike for Mack in the near future.
Such great QBs on our team. We'll do extremely well no matter who is under center.
It is one of the many things that make Ohio State so great. The Buckeyes are a brotherhood playing with unity and great intensity towards one common goal.
The first of many championships to come ...
Will never forget Ted Ginn, Jr., the greatest Buckeye, to me at least. Two of my fondest memories were 1) the punt return to the house when he was a freshman playing against TTUN, and 2) the 50-yrd. TD vs. ND with no one closer to him than 15 yards in the ND secondary. What a show of complete domination against hated foes!
And what makes it even more annoying is that (if I am not mistaken) we were the no. 2 choice for all of those DTs you mentioned (Gallimore, Wilkins and Beckner, Jr.). If Jackson heads to UA, that would be another such case!
If I recall Birm's Hurry Up on the decision, it probably does not bode well for us if he decides this soon, especially since his communication with the OSU coaching staff has slowed down. I never could understand how we can have such difficulty securing a blue-chip DT, considering that the situation for a DT cannot be any better than at Ohio State at the moment. Let's hope that Jackson selects the Buckeyes nonetheless.
"An 85-yard rush to the house definitely helps boost your rushing average."
Any particular run you might have been thinking about?
Love.this.gif! Hill will be a great one. No speculation on this point at all.
What? Only five Buckeyes in the first round?
