If you are going to compare by average composite ranking, I think it makes more sense to rank the same number of players, for example, the average ranking of Ohio State's top 6 players compared to Penn State's. I think this comparison would be more interesting and good added perspective.

Was Jabrill Peppers an athlete or something? I remember him having a very high composite ranking and he seems to be missing.

Really appreciate all the work you put into this site! If you run out of comparisons with ttun, it would be interesting to see some comparisons to Alabama and Florida St. under Saban and Fisher.

Kanye does create his own music and beats. In fact, he got his start in the industry making beats for other rappers, including some of Jay Z's biggest hits. Not sure what to make of your post.

I've been living in Tel Aviv for about a month now. I was born and raised in Columbus and am as big of a fan as there is. Staying up until 6:30 or 7 in the morning has been pretty rough, makes those night games a little more difficult. BTW Mike's Place is pretty sweet.

This team is fun to watch! Tonight might the most fun I've ever had watching a regular season game, what a team effort to pull off the doubleheader sweep. 

They have great starting pitching and Broxton plus Chapman have both been great since coming off the DL. With the Brewers cooling off after their fast start and the Cardinals injuries to their starting pitchers, the Reds still could win the division even with all the injuries they've had and their bad start.

Ill pistol whip the next person that says shenanigans!

What do I need to do to get this 30for30 made?

Besides George, Hibbert fell apart and Stephenson's head got too big. Pretty shocking with how steady of veterans Hill and West are. 

Comment 05 May 2014

Not trying to bash the guy because I loved him when he was a Buckeye, but Turner wasn't playing that great in Philly. His stats were inflated because he had a high usage rate playing for a terrible team that played at a fast pace and had more possessions per game than any other team. His advance metric stats were horrific, and Philly hated him, even celebrating when he got traded. I hope he can turn it around, but the narrative of his play early this season on this site is pretty off. 

 

And the pacers are done IMO. Hopefully whoever comes out of the west can beat the Heat, because they look like they will definitely be in the finals for an unprecedented 4th straight year. 

Comment 05 May 2014

First round they are supposedly going cb, probably because the guy from Alabama has been a disappointment so far and the guy from ttun tore his Achilles last year. Second they will take one of the top two centers if they are available since they only have an undrafed free agent from last year on the current roster. They will take a qb in the third or fourth to be Dalton's backup and maybe his successor if they decide not to give him a new contract. Probably Mattenberger or Murray if either is available, at least that's what I hope. 

Comment 11 Nov 2013

Agree with everything you said but certain schools are more willing to take a chance on a kid that might not qualify than others. West Virginia taking Noel Devine as well as SEC schools taking kids they know don't have a good chance of qualifying come to mind. 

Also, I don't think Cardale Jones really belongs on that list of players. His quote on Twitter was ridiculous and dumb, but he is supposedly a pretty good student. 

Comment 12 Oct 2013

Definitely agree with everything you said. I just felt like we were the obvious choice for both after the Wisconsin game where the atmosphere and LBJ impressed them. Now I'm not so sure, both because of this game and because of the lessened scholarship reductions. 

Comment 12 Oct 2013

Is anyone else as worried as I am about Gesicki and Holley? The game is pretty entertaining and the atmosphere looks pretty crazy. It would hurt to lose both of them to a conference rival. 

Comment 23 Jul 2013

I understand what you are trying to say but think the situations are completely different. Nobody from what I have seen has argued that Hyde should not be kicked off the team if he did in fact hit a woman, and most have been happy about the immediate punishments for these players actions. Are people happy this happened? Of course not. The only victim in this case is the woman in the Hyde situation, and I'm sure everyone hopes she is ok, which I am sure she will be. She doesn't really affect Ohio State, the reason we are all here. It's not like she won't recover. What allegedly happened sounds terrible, and hopefully the justice system will do its job. I just don't see the comparison to Penn St, as people didn't try to brush this under the rug or allow for this kind of thing to continue in the future. 

Comment 21 Jun 2013

While down for differing opinions usually irritates the hell out of me, I think it was warranted in this case. I didn't downvote him but I can't blame those that did. This thread is meant to celebrate the addition of a player to this class, one from what I can tell seems like an exceptional young man that is a hard worker and wanted to be a Buckeye. Making one post that he's not excited would be ok. Constantly posting on a thread the player very well might be reading questioning his talents and the coaching staff is guaranteed to get you downvoted into oblivion, especially the way he was doing it. 

That said, I am happy you threw him a lifeline. Hopefully, he isn't a troll.

The bottom half of the B1G is just embarrassing. For all the complaints about the SEC and their fans, teams from the bottom half of their conference, especially Kentucky and Ole Miss are far outperforming the lower half of our conference. Vandy has also been doing a good job lately. I don't know if its coaching or what, and it is still early, but hopefully they can turn it around. 

 

Edit: Hovenaut beat me to it, well said. And thanks Jordan, great write up. 

Comment 02 Jun 2013

Thanks Jeremy, I thought it might be something like that. Is Dilfer the guy that decides? He really seems to care about stuff like that. I remember when Sanchez was coming out of USC and raved about him. One quote was something along the lines that if he and the other quarterbacks went out he would be given the keys for the end of the night. I think he was referring to his leadership but he should have been referring to how he is a terrible quarterback and should be their limo driver. 

Comment 01 Jun 2013

Jeremy or Miles, can you touch on why Kizer got the golden ticket instead of Harris? Just wandering, as it seemed like most in attendance thought Harris was the best quarterback there including the two of you. Thanks and great job on the summary.
