Parents went to the ND at OSU game in 1995 when I was five, parents left me at my Uncle's. My dad told me who to root for before he left, my uncle and cousins were ND fans, they couldn't sway me and I puked on their couch for them trying, and OSU won. I don't really remember a whole lot about OSU football until their National Championship season when I attended their games against Cincinnati and Penn St.

I really hope that Luke does well and shuts down the Ohio to UK connection. Of course I don't want to see UC take recruits from OSU but I want them to take back the city. I get 5 stars and high 4 stars from Cincinnati going to OSU.. and UC fans should too (although a lot of will be salty AF and believe they're something they're not) but I want UC to clean up on the guys that are good but don't get OSU offers.. that includes beating out Michigan State, Tennessee, West Virginia and other similar programs. 

I would love for Fickell to kill at UC and take over for Urban in 5-10 years (I hope Urban coaches the Buckeyes til he's 70 but that is probably a pipe dream).  That being said I do have a major concern and I am not sure I have seen it brought up. Cincinnatians do not like when coaches leave, and most rational fans could understand him going back to OSU a lot of Cincinnati fans would be bitter.. not sure how it would affect recruiting in Cincinnati. I think he would be able to maintain good relationships with the high schools but public perception is important.

Observations:

Did Prince change his number? Pretty Sure he's 59.

Left side of the OL looks good, right side still scares me.

I like McCall at both RB and HB, he's like Curtis, he needs 10 touches and in different ways.

Landers was a 1 tech and Sprinkle a 3 tech last year, why the switch?

Baron Browning will play despite his injury. If Booker doesn't meet expectations there are multiple guys that could take his spot, Hilliard, Browning, Harrison, Jones. 

D. Webb has to improve IMO, I almost wish we would slide Okudah to safety but I know he wants to play corner and he has the talent to play either spot.

D. Line depth should be elite but Hubbard underwhelmed me last year, I want to see him step up as he has the talent. Some of his film is crazy good and most is kind of blah so I hope he can be a consistent factor.

Victor underwhelmed me massively. I think Campbell finally does have his breakout year. McClaurin needs to be a viable wr. Dixon looked great and will be a key player if he can stay healthy. Disappointed Mack hasn't flashed yet, I had visions of a superstar when he committed. Hill will be a key player too. I hope Trevon comes in and can push himself in fall camp to light a fire under some guys.

We need Prince to shit or get off the pot. He's uber talented but needs step up his technique and effort. He can either be a future 1st rounder or continue to be the player everyone bashes and probably cost us a game or more.

Okudah looked really good for a true freshman. Really impressed.

I think we are 3 deep at RB. I think dobbins is a future star. I think McCall needs to work from the slot sometimes or his snaps will be limited. Weber needs to continue to work on pass blocking and catching. 

One RB picked up a block way too deep in the pocket and got pushed into the QB.

LB depth looks good imo

Talent wise Haskins is the best QB but Barrett is the leader of the team and will improve with Day as his coach.

No QB will have success unless the right side of the Oline gets their shit together. Princes technique and effort still looked subpar to me. Someone needs to really step up at guard too. I have a feeling Jones and Jordan will be elite on the left side.

JT had an actual QB coach in 2014 and a good OC. In 2015 there was bad play calling and indecision at QB. In 2016 there was bad play calling, poor wr play, and downright abysmal pass protection. JT has talent and is a leader. He's as tough as nails. He's who I want leading the team. If the Oline steps up he will have better foot mechanics leading to much better accuracy.
