I'm a current freshman of the class of 2018 at THE Ohio State University. I am a die-hard fan who follows the recruiting aspect probably a little too much. I sat on the 2 yard line on OSU's side during the 2003 title game, right in front of the famous "last play" made by Cie Grant. Not your typical college kid, more like a 40 year old man who devotes too much time to OSU football and basketball.

Kluber's breaking ball pitches are so clean, perfect for a strikeout pitcher

I actually really like Foles when he was healthy, my biggest issue is he's coming off a shoulder injury i believe, so i don't feel secure if they trade for him now. But like you said, anyone besides McCown please.

based on in-game coaching? nope, I don't see how much of an upgrade those two would be in that aspect to Matta.

Comment 08 Mar 2015

I love Matta; his game planning, strategy, and decision is second to none in my opinion.. But my issue, like many others, is that he and the staff have failed miserably in developing quite a few players. Development has not been this staff's strong suit over the last 5 + years. Like i said i love Matta and wouldn't trade him for anyone, but player development has been very underwhelming and my biggest issue with this program.

If we didn't have all these QB's, I would love to have Taysom Hill in this offense; I easily have a man crush on the guy with his play on the field, but I guess CJ12 is cool too. I like KD Cannon from Baylor, speedy sophomore-to-be WR. And my final pick is Hargreaves from Florida, he is a lock-down CB and will have a solid future in the NFL one day

Met Bosa at Friday Night Lights this past summer, guy is so awkward and goofy. Coombs and Meyer had me camp 2 years ago so that was an interesting experience. Kenny G was also a great guy to meet. And I used to do crossfit with Maurice Clarett for a while

I would be that guy if I was of legal age my friend

Comment 24 Feb 2015

Well Rob here is the reality of the situation...... If the University debates bringing in a design like this and the kids want them, then you're opinion is going to be SOL. These uniform updates and alternatives are for the player preferences and recruiting. So in the end if it helps I'm all for it, but it doesn't mean they would wear these every game.

Couldn't be further from the truth Jeremy. Go look at his high school tape and stats. High School Amir was a completely different person, he was a stud on a state championship team. Once he got here it was like he became a deer in headlights. He became complacent with where he has gotten to in terms of his recruitment. You can tell he did not work as much as he could've on his game.

No TMac, that would make too much sense. The Browns don't think logically, even us fans understand this

Comment 08 Feb 2015

I'll take an underdog in this discussion, I see KJ Hill developing into a stud wideout

Comment 04 Feb 2015

While all this is true, they DON'T have to sign today. I agree as it is expected kids sign today, but look at someone like McDowell last year. All that aside, I agree 100%, how can you still not know after years of recruitment?

Comment 29 Jan 2015

Wish we could just move back to St. John. Like you said, terrible crowds so a smaller arena won't really mean much and it creates an awesome environment. On the other side, the fan turnout outside of students has been embarrassing. TV does a good job at hiding the crowd because the lower bowl is about all that's been filled each game, and even then there's a lot of open space in the lower bowl. It's bad. This is coming from a current student FWIW
