I actually am a blast at parties.  When you post a topic on a sports forum that says something that was true one to two years ago but isn't true today then it's not semantics.  OSU struggled in 2014 through 2016 to land a good number of DTs, which forced/allowed OSU to move former DEs to DT.  

You posted this topic in the recruiting forum, when you are talking about depth on the team.  You made a conclusion that Meyer and Johnson want to do this, but their 2017 recruiting goes directly against your statement.  Additionally, in 2018, OSU leads for the #1 and #2 DTs in the country, once again showing that what happened in 2014-2016 is not relevant to how Meyer and Johnson are recruiting

Comment 30 Jun 2016

Well I'm confused because the forum wasn't titled DT Depth it was titled DT recruiting, which we are not having an issue in in 2016 for the 2017 class.  

Recruiting refers to the process before a kid gets to school, depth is when they are on campus.  

How is the title not confusing?

Comment 30 Jun 2016

I'm confused why this forum post is coming out today, when OSU has 2 stud DTs and 2 stud OTs in the class, and are likely adding another stud DT to this class.  3 Natural DTs not DEs being converted.

Comment 29 Jun 2016

I mean OSU should be worried about everyone flipping. Out of State kids are always more difficult to keep anyway.  You work as hard as you can for each and every commit 

Comment 29 Jun 2016

You are looking at the VT game as the last game Smith played in, while he made big blocks for us later in the year (michigan/bigX title game).

also, he was the one who actually got us going in the NCG.  OSU was backed up inside the 10 and he caught a huge 3rd down pass for 20+ that led to the TD.  He isn't an "awful" receiver.  he has made more than his fair share of mistakes, but he may have been the deep threat last year if not for the injury

Why is ketchup the best condiment? — OSU_Alum_05

Ranch is the best condiment followed closely by barbecue sauce.

Ehh, I would personally say queso is the best condiment (if you count cheese as a condiment), but I agree Ranch>ketchup since it is more versatile (salads and pizza being the two that stick out vs ketchup)

Comment 29 Jun 2016

It's interesting that people say we only have 3 starters back on offense, which while true, discounts Corey Smith who has played a lot of ball for us in the past, and Brown who was penned in as a starter last year

Comment 28 Jun 2016

We would have drooled to have a guy like Ewell want to be a Buckeye any of the past 3 years.  He's a top 10 DT.  We just happen to have 2 good ones already and are in good sitting with a few more DL guys

It's unfortunate but let's be honest; ND isn't a slouch program where he will be out of touch with prestige.  ND is a top 10 program 

Comment 26 Jun 2016

Saw on Rivals that LeCounte says he is absolutely taking an official to OSU in the fall.  I understand recruiting is everchanging but we already know who will be in the secondary by then.  He went on to say “I’m just really recruiting for Georgia now."  Why would OSU want that to happen in Columbus when we already have studs at the same position LeCounte plays.

Strength coaches seem to just be a different type of dude.  It's funny to watch them in their environment 

Comment 21 Jun 2016

I feel like people here complain to complain.  Have you not seen this staff make changes that have worked wonders in the past 4 years?

In 2012 and 2013, There were tons of screen passes to Philly Brown to get players on the perimeter

In 2014 after the VT game, there was a complete retooling of the offense.  In 2014, after the Michigan game, there was another retooling of the offense

In 2015, after the MSU game, the hurry up was used a good majority of the time those games were in doubt

The only time IMO there hasn't been deliverance on a promise is in regards to throwing to the TE.  Oftentimes TEs aren't the #1 guy on a route, or even the #2.  Also, throwing over the middle is often what a QB has to do to get it to a TE, and those throws are obviously more dangerous, so a QB has to have more belief and trust

Comment 15 Jun 2016

Yea his tweet about it was really respectful. 

Comment 09 Jun 2016

We have more OL because 5 of them play every snap.  By my count we have 16 scholarship OL this year (counting the transfer).  OSU is basically 3 deep at every position on the team, so that is completely normal.  Do you complain about have 4 QBs, or 10 WRs? 85 scholarships 22 positions is about 4 per positions, although obviously you have specialists too 

Comment 06 Jun 2016

Where do you think Victor cracks the 2 deep?  I would think Smith/Brown are the first 2, and then you have a plethora of names who are rFR, sophomores etc who are there, as well as Mack who already played spring ball.  I mean just off the top of my head you have Dixon/Gibson/Clark/Terry Mc etc. who already have the time in the program

That's not even counting Wilson/Samuel/Campbell at the slot.  Campbell was out wide early last year too

I put this into the thread relating to Akers visiting in June but figured it may be more appropriate timing-wise here:

I would never doubt birm, but it sounds like Akers is playing to the crowd, and there are a few schools who think they have the leg up:

For example from this LSU article:

'Cam Akers, RB, 5-10, 200, Mississippi

Akers made the trip, with his mother by his side, and it seems that the trip was a major success for LSU. The Tigers running backs coach Jabbar Juluke spent a lot of time with the prized running back, as his wife Denise spent ample time with his mother. The foursome are said to have forged a tight bond that could work in the Tigers' favor down the road. The Tigers appear to be in a two-team battle with rival Ole Miss for Akers' services. The pitch was simple: Come here and play early, with Leonard Fournette destined for the NFL, and be the next great back at LSU. Akers is listening.'

Does it sound like his favorite school is the last school type of thing?

What you're essentially saying is that a fumble in football where the offense bobbles a snap is the same as when Bosa crashes into a QB causing a fumble.  The end result is the same, but to say the defense caused both results to happen is laughable

Comment 18 May 2016

Jones plays in Michigan, while Grimes plays in what is thought of as the best HS football state, at the top level, in the country.  DPJ may end up being the best, but saying a guy looks like "the man" doesn't matter if you are playing with boys 

Comment 18 May 2016

If you want to be a smartass about it sure. However, when Curry is missing shots he often makes, it isn't the defensive prowess of the defender.  It is often Curry is having a bad game

Comment 18 May 2016

The Cavs not having Irving nor Love last year helped them play defense against the Warriors and slow the game down.  Then Cavs fans went on a rant saying Delly was "stopping" Curry, while Curry was just missing shots

This year the Cavs look more balanced.  They seem to be having fun as well (could be cause they are facing little resistance in the East). It's hard to tell whether the East aside from Cleveland just isn't that good, or if the Cavs are really playing that well.  Probably a bit of both (I don't think many here would bet on any team from the East outside of Cleveland beating any of the West's top 4 seeds, maybe even top 6 or 7 seeds), but Cleveland is playing great

Comment 12 May 2016

MSU beat OSU last year because they are better in that type of game.  Meyer plays the game relying on speed as opposed to power (a combo of both is really the best of the world).  Therefore, when you get into a game where power matters (raining, 40mph winds,cold), then the advantages of speed are neutralized. If that MSU/OSU game is played in a dome last November, OSU's speed wins by 20 points.  A Tressel team, for example, would never lose to that MSU team, but Meyer's gains (which are abundant), are neutralized by conditions sometimes.  Oh and Bosa being offsides all game
