Born and raised in the Hall of Fame City, and now living in Nashville where it's all Alabama all the time. Played WR at D3 Ohio Wesleyan where we used to practice in the shoe to prepare for artificial surface games back in the 80's. My QB was Jeff Long, AD at Arkansas, who was head of the NCAA playoff selection committee for 2014 and 2015 seasons. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.

I was at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, and then a craft show in Nashville with my wife for Mother's Day up until the Cavs tip off .  My son wore a "where I'm from" brand t shirt with (614) on it Saturday, and a block O cap yesterday. There must have been 20 people who stopped us or offered an "OH" - just made me smile. One guy from Boston watched one of these interactions and said "must be nice rooting for a college team full of pros every year - only two programs like that."

I know that I'm the line voice crying in the wilderness, but I saw too many games where Jalin Marshal ignited the OSU offense with deep crossing patterns or a dynamic punt return. I remain perplexed by his Undrafted status and by the overwhelming majority of readers who predicted it.

There were MAC WRs selected , but not Jalin. I seriously don't get it. (I also don't get how Aaron Burbridge of MSU lasted until the 6th round)

What he's saying is what we've all been saying. Great job recruiting, Great job developing. Great job strategizing in 2014. Shitty job managing in 2015. It wasn't one bad game,  it was a bad season except for three games where they didn't underachieve.

And since it's a record in the first three rounds, he's also saying this assemblage of talent doesn't happen often either,and it was a huge opportunity blown.

Charley Casserly on NFL.com has Zeke going 8th to the Browns. That would be disastrous for him. No line and no receivers, it would be Zeke, RG3 and Duke Johnson struggling for 1st downs on their way to 13 point days every damn week.  I really want to see Zeke go to an NFL team.

On the plus side, they also report that the Browns are trying to trade the pick down to Chicago or Miami. Please God let that happen so that the Curse (Browns) don't draft a Buckeye. (Btw, I am a Browns fan)

I went last year and it was about 80 degrees and sunny. Leading up to the game it felt EXACTLY like an early September game including tailgating and a huge crowd. Although it's pretty anticlimactic once play begins , you just know that there is a positive influence on recruits to see he largest crowd in the nation attend a spring game every year.

I'm proud to be part of this - but it does hurt not to be in COL this Saturday and every Saturday from September to November.
