First 4 overall, so BG and Utah.
So, while Harbaugh has a great name, the fact remains his college coaching record is 29-21, 21-15 in conference, and 1-1 in bowl games. He has had 2 winning seasons and 2 losing seasons. His best year was in 2012 when he had Andrew Luck. He also seems to wear people and situations out.
I'm not saying he won't be successful (I hope he isn't), but it isn't exactly like scUM is getting a guy with a career 142-26 record and 3 national championships who has never had a losing season. Think about that. Urb has 113 more wins and only 5 more losses in his coaching career than Harbaugh. Wow.
One game at a time. They need to stay hungry. And healthy.
But the ceiling of this team is off the charts.
I would have gladly suffered through one or two problems if it meant a trip to the final four ;)
Yep. Pretty much this. None of them were able to elevate their game to a place it needed to be to make this an elite program the last two years. Hopefully we will be able to find that magic with this incoming class.
Despite this teams continued optimism about itself, this seeding feels right. We might get one win, but not 2.
I'm racking my brain to think of a guy that Matta has developed into a noticeably better player. We seem to get mostly high recruits, they come in and perform, then they stay at that level or drop off. I appreciate that Matta has made buckeye hoops relevant and productive, but the lack of player development is disturbing.
This one was frustrating. We needed to build a lead once we got it, but just gave it away quickly.
On to the next.
Will never and can't ever change allegiances. Born and raised a NE Ohio Buckeye, I have too much invested into these largely unsuccessful teams :) I have lived in St. Louis and watched the local teams win Super Bowls and a couple World Series. But my heart belongs to my Cleveland teams, of of course the Buckeyes. That will never change.
You are gonna have a front row seat for the Blacksburg Massacre on Sept 7. Congrats!!
Bummer. No 1 was my introduction to Chinese food. I could eat anything after that ;)
Ahh. Thanks for the clarification!
I assume the number in parenthesis was the number Birm think we might take at each position. If you add them up it totals 24. McCall appears excluded in Birm's opinion it seems.
Running Back (1) - Kareem Walker
Interesting... What about Demario McCall?
This is such a strange year. My eyeballs tell me that the RPI is closer to correct. But maybe there are just a bunch of weak teams this year that make all our other numbers much higher. #bosashrug
Even her town of Mulga sounds like it has a sub-80 IQ.
Scroll down Birm's predictions. All his OSU picks (there are 11 uncommitted who Birm says will go OSU) are 4 or 5 star guys. If we finish with 23-25 recruits, I'd say statistically this will be the best class we have ever pulled in. Time will tell if this proves itself on the field, of course. Oh, and 2017 looks even better. What a great time to be a Buckeye!!
Great way to finish off a Monday. Booooooom!!!
So.... We need to count on Amir Williams to not play like Amir Williams in order to win? Yeah, not holding my breath lol.
The choice is his. However, you know what they say. Go to Ohio State or... You know the rest.
It was a toss up for me, between the first Michael Bennett and the second Michael Bennett. Can't go wrong with either of those guys.
Best of luck mending fences and thanks for sharing!
What a relief. Thanks for sharing DJ.
