Yesterday, I was saying that I did not think anyone would commit on Friday. Now I'm eating crow ... and loving it!
I really hope you are right. Can you imagine the strength of our future O-Line with Josh, Jake and Wyatt and then adding Jackson?
I think we get no one today. Still, the work done today should go a long way to securing great talent in the future. Maybe even as soon as tomorrow ...
Bummer. That is very disappointing news.
Now that Vonn Bell is in the NFL, Samuel is my favorite player. Whatever the position, a guy with that much intelligence, vision, speed and athletic skill MUST get on the field often, whatever the position.
Love me some goons and savages ...
Oh, and when they go to the trouble of trashing you and thumping on their chests, you know that you have gotten to them. Usually it is the surest sign of fear and self-doubt.
Goons? That is an astoshingly accurate representation the character of many of Alabama's players, many of whom have committed crimes. But an inclination towards criminal behavior certainly is no guarantee of superiority. Just ask the last Bama team that got blitzed by the Buckeyes ...
Great post, Ohiodarryl! Thank you. Have an UV and keep 'em coming!
Ditto. It's not as though JH is Urban Meyer.
That is brilliant! If we should get them both, that is how I will think of them henceforth!
Happy Birthday, Coach Meyer! Many happy returns!
From what I understood, McBain, that would not be the case. Coach Meyer intends to use them in different ways and would use them on the field at the same time. How cool would (hopefully will) that be?
This is a fantastic accomplishment for JK Dobbins. My favorite recruit is impressive in so many ways. Running behing the best OL in the 2017 class (at least) is going to be an exercise in domination lime none other!
Even Vandy? Wow, then think what Bama would do to Ohio State. Why they would mop the floor wi ... oh wait, right ...
I probably would commit to Ohio State early and help recruit.
Rocking the red, white and blue here in my office in Germany. Happy 4th of July!
This is no surprise to anyone who has watched the Three Lions football team over the last three generations. The difference between the worldwide pro-England hype at the beginning of big tournaments and their actual on-pitch performance during said tournaments is immeasurably huge. The 66 Cup win was based on biased refereeing, meaning they really haven't won anything since automobiles became a new fad. Kind of reminds me of a certain team up north ...
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.
Wow, you have seen quite a lot of football. My respect. I actually started becoming a rabid fan during the late 80s when I was pursuing my BA at Ohio State. Those were painful memories (footballwise). Makes the current state of Buckeye football (and mostly the past 15 years) all the sweeter. I hope this phase lasts forever.
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.
Regardless, if even "only" half of the players on our board commit to OSU, this class should be the best in the nation pound for pound and one for the ages.
Cleveland Title Town! Has a nice ring to it!
Btw: King James is the greatest ever.
