So Cager goes all Bama at once and eliminates us after saying we're his favorite. Then Bama tells him they don't have room for him. He goes to Miami. Now Bama wants him, and he won't go there. This is a funny situation.
"craft"... "Defensively".... AARON CRAFT IS COMING BACK!?
Nothing to see or
Nothing to see or here here.... fixed it for you
And the KJ Hill thread
Urban Meyer at Gustin's basketball game.
Edit: Just saw these were posted towards the end of the comments on the Hurry Up.
This kid is a stud athlete. I want him in this class more than any of the other guys left on the board.

Go USA, though?
why have a ceremony if you are just going to reaffirm the commitment?
Zeke might be able to answer your question.
Is this a joke? Singed? Here? Couch? WHAT ARE YOU SAYING??
Last I heard, Pacquiao was giving him until the end of the month or something to make a decision, or it's never going to happen. Hope it finally does.
I'm so confused.
Our coaching staff has said that a commitment just means you are in their top 3. There is a reason they keep recruiting everyone on our commit list and continue relationships with those who commit elsewhere.
You literally just repeated what I said. RDUBS, chill out man. The worst thing I said about Davis on here is that the way he went about the process was dirty and that he maybe disrespected the staff by not at least respecting them enough to let them have an in-home visit. Yeah, he didn't weigh all of his options so why did he commit just to look around the whole time? And even re-affirm his commitment two weeks ago just to do this? I'm not one of the ones on here saying he has a bad attitude in life, nor am I one of the ones assuming he took money at auburn and that's why he's going there (judging his character on something we don't even know if he did), but he did play us. If he didn't play us, and he actually was interested in us, he'd let the staff have an in-home visit, but he isn't. That doesn't make any sense.
He's still committed to us, but he doesn't even want an in-home visit from the staff (you know the staff would give him one, why aren't they?). Why do that? Just de-commit. If he wasn't going to honor anything the whole time, well, he has made it difficult for the staff to go all in on any other defensive backs except for just keep in touch with them. He literally waited until the last week.
You can't just assume that he's going for money and then make that kind of comment about his character based on nothing. Wrong attitude on life? Seems a little harsh.
Does it still come with the B1G patch and the nike logo?
They think if they recruit the same guys we do, they will beat Bama.
As much as I want him in this class, I'm not going to get my hopes up for this one. Gut feeling he ends up at Auburn.
They're really not similar at all. Our staff gave Davis a spot when he "wanted" one. Yes, that only means we're in his top 3, but a commitment does mean something to an extent. He was guaranteed a spot on the team within one week, and he rode that spot out all the way until now. He technically still has not de-committed, so what exactly is he doing? Gustin has not committed to anyone. I don't see that the same way as you, nor do I see why a recruit should HAVE to commit to a team if you visited them a few times (or it would be disrespectful).
I didn't follow recruiting long enough to see their commitments. But I never once said, or even suggested that it's okay if it's done in our favor. Still makes it dirty, but I'd be happy to have them.
It really doesn't matter when they started recruiting him, honestly. If you ask me, it shows even more disrespect when our staff gave him the spot and he rode it out.
But like I said, we just see it different ways.
Porter Gustin is still a bad example. He has never pulled the trigger nor given them any kind of a commitment. USC is also a lot closer. Not the same thing at all. James Clark visited Florida like 7 times, because they were a lot closer. He came here once and saw everything he needed to see. Committed to us. You don't owe a school a commitment just because you paid them a few visits.
1. Regarding Prince, I don't think our staff has ever put a recruit in a position where they felt they had to sign with us, or we're done with you. Like someone else said on here, that was a top program in the country holding a gun to a recruit's head saying "sign with us." To make a 17 or 18 year old kid feel THAT uncomfortable and make him feel like he has to tell the Ohio State coaching staff to keep quiet about his visit is actually kind of sad. In my opinion, dirty move by Bama, and I would hope to not see that from our staff.
2. Did Damon Arnette even have a committable offer until now? If he did, would it be a dirty move by him? Yes. Would I be happy to get him? Yes. Just like Auburn fans would be happy to get Davis.
3. Hamilton was never even offered by Ohio State until this past weekend, so that's not a good example. Btw, yes I was very happy to get him.
Decided to take it a week prior to signing day when he has had offers from both places for a long time. After tweeting out a couple weeks ago that people doubted him and his commitment. Well....... not to mention the fact that I imagine the staff is pretty respectful and would pay their recruit an in-home visit even if he's on the fence. The fact that Davis can't even return that respect, and must have told the staff that he has NO intentions to sign with them after that visit (a week prior to signing day).
