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.
Tell me again, why is Mr. Green not in prison right now again?
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?
I can imagine Jones is not afraid of competition and would join the OSU class if he feels comfortable here.
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 ...
Did you know that by subtracting the times TTUN was ranked due to overhyping, they have 237 appearances less?
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.
He meant the next All-American safety at OSU after Malik Hooker.
... not to mention a badass on the field. His highlight reel is pretty jawdropping.
Can certainly confirm this for law school. LSAT and GPA must fit or admission will not be granted. Attending the same school for UG makes no difference.
Ohio State no. 1, TTUN no where near Ohio State's level of success? Sounds about right.
Dobbins is a great player. I would be very sad to see him don anything but the S&G.
Sometimes good athletes do run for 85 yards at a time, though ...
Calgarybuck, it is a shame I can UV that only once.
Agree. One of my favorite players ever. Physical skills are excellent, but his intelligence and play analysis are what make him exceptional imo.
We have some other holes to fill too, but I think we have the talent and the coaching to do it. I suppose we will see soon enough.
It is good to see his hard work paying off. I hope he has a long, successful career in the NFL.
