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.

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.

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.

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.

It's not my fault you have a Scottish accent

Comment 10 Jan 2013

Bell isn't currently committed anywhere. In regards to the original question about why Bell is so important, I would trust both the coaching staff, who want Bell really bad, and the staff at this wonderful site over sites such as Rivals. Bell is a big time prospect, and it would be huge to grab a player from the South away from the grips of Nick Saban and Alabama. 

*saw you were talking about Thompson, not Bell. My bad. 

Comment 09 Jan 2013

I think he meant beating Alabama and Nick Saban. The state up north has never really been a priority for any OSU coaching staff. 

Comment 09 Jan 2013

After reading all of the recruiting breakdowns, including this one, I always come to the same conclusion: the silver bullets are going to dominate the B1G for years to come. 

Comment 08 Jan 2013

A win here could potentially turn the season around. Winning games like these on the road are key to being competitive in the B1G, which is why I favor scUM to win the league this year, as Indiana and Illinois are completely different teams on the road than at home. 

Comment 07 Jan 2013

Unfortunately, 10-8 is about what we can expect. The team needs to win all their games at home, but I have little confidence they can after being beat down by Kansas at home. They should still qualify for the tournament this year and have a chance to make a surprise run, and next year could shape up to be a really good team if Thomas decides to come back. 

Comment 06 Jan 2013

I would agree that Ross and Williams have been extremely frustrating because they seem to have the talent and potential to be key players on this team but haven't been able to play up to that potential. I think Williams will get better with more playing time and makes enough of an impact on defense when focused to warrant playing. I really think Ross is a player that needs to have the offense go through him to succeed, kind of like an Evan Turner when he was a Buckeye. Otherwise, he seems to grow uninterested and fails to make an impact on the game. 

Comment 06 Jan 2013

I would like to see more of the offense run through Ross when Thomas is being keyed on and is ineffective. Ross is a player that needs the ball in his hands to score, and he causes mismatch problems for most defenses. Running the offense through him will also help Thomas, who will get more open looks and offensive putbacks. 

Comment 04 Jan 2013

This doesn't really warrant a down vote since it is an opinion. 

I have a bad feeling that he's going to pick Louisville. I'm expecting the worst but hoping for the best.
