At first I was disappointed Elflein and Price sat since it limits our insight into what the team will actually look like next year, but it's probably good motivation for Urban to let the new guys go out and get knocked around a little in front of the student day crowd. It's not the first time he's done that kind of thing, and it's worked out well in the past. Hopefully this is more of the same.

I agree. For someone that the staff offered early on and who has been such a great representative of the program throughout his commitment, he has done nothing to deserve so much animosity, here or in other corners of the internet, from Buckeye fans. Not only that, but he has great physical tools and seems to really be improving as a player and still has one more year of high school before even transitioning to college ball. I'm excited to see how he continues to progress and really wish the best for this guy.

Also, I think we might be overlooking how much of a role he may have played in this already-stupid-good recruiting class. Having a top talent committed early and in other recruits' ears has to help. Good luck to Danny this upcoming season. Todd, too.

I bet it really puts a chip on his shoulder that Bovada gave him such long odds. That's okay, he relishes the underdog role. He'll take the job five times just to show them.

I don't have any idea what that show is, but I immediately feel happy that I've cut the cord. Is this "The View" of sports?

And he's always telling stories about this really big drum he has and picking up and replacing all the rolls before finally choosing one. Just move through the line, man.

I had a similar thought, but said, "dammit, Purdue..."

Comment 17 Sep 2015

In my hometown, I knew a guy who, while trying to be a good neighbor, went ahead and fertilized his neighbors lawn after he did his own. Except that it wasn't fertilizer, it was roundup, and then neither of them had any grass for the rest of the summer. I always wondered how I would have reacted if I were his neighbor. The guy tried a solid bro move, but it really backfired. I think this kind of thing happens more often than we think.

I like it when DJ decrees these things. The Marionaire has spoken, and so it shall be.

Comment 10 Sep 2015

Oh I agree. I was more commenting that, in a vacuum, the comment about not grading receivers on drops struck me as odd. I think Run Fido Run below me makes a great point below on the way Urban wants to motivate the players rather than scare them. I was very impressed with Campbell's performance overall, and had been hoping he'd get a chance to play this year after hearing great things about him last year on the scout team.

As is tradition, I predict South Carolina gives rise to this year's three week phenomenon: Marquise Trilliams.

I always forget that Tim Beckman exists somewhere over in Illinois. I was supremely worried this post was about Tim Beck, man, the OSU QB coach. Deep exhale.
