Looking forward to seeing all the members of this great class sign today. Hopeful we'll finish with Munford and Wilson but I think the latter is a stretch. It's great to be a buckeye fan with the top class in the conference and likely 2nd best class in the country! Great work coaching staff!

The Buckeye coaching staff has had an unbelievable year getting top recruits from Texas. It would be incredible if they could somehow pull off landing Marvin Wilson too. I believe the only reason there is a chance is because of Okudah and Browning being signed already and their connection to Wilson. Hopefully their tweets last night were based on something positive that they know from him. They are both in great positions to let Wilson know what it's really like at Ohio State being a member of the program since they've lived it for several weeks now. Until he signs with the Buckeyes I'm still not convinced he's leaving the south.

If Lindsey was "shown the door" by the coaches why did Zach Smith go back out there to make one last pitch to him after he decomitted? Some are told to move on and sometimes you simply lose guys because they found a place that they felt was a better situation for them.
Comment 22 Jan 2017
I agree. I'd rather get 18-22 high quality 4/5 star recruits that are more likely to contribute immediately or in 1-2 years than 25-30 with lots of 3 stars who are less likely to ever contribute and wash out of your program. I'd take quality over quantity all day, especially if you filling all your most important needs. Icing on the cake for this class would be 1 more DT of the 2 we are pursuing.

Had to chuckle when I was reading something you said about Fuller, I noticed you wrote at the end, "...fluidity he shows with the hands in his ball." I'm sure you meant to say ball in his hands. Hopefully he'll step up and replace Hooker.

Is it just me or did he have a falling out with Grimes as well as Martell? It's pretty obvious by his comments that he doesn't want to play second fiddle to Grimes and wants to be the man. It's unfortunate he waited so long to decide that and change to Nebraska. With his size and injury history it will be interesting to see if he does much there or anywhere. Good luck to him and I'm still very excited about the rest of our class.

I'm not convinced that studrawa is a really good line coach considering what we saw at times this season out of our line. Maybe giving him another year will give us a much better idea. While I don't believe from results on the field that Warinner was a good offensive playcaller, it seems like he did great things with our offensive line during his time as line coach. Would have been ideal to have him return to line coach, he probably didn't want to take that demotion here. It's probably best for all parties involved if he starts over fresh at a place like Minnesota. I appreciate what he did with the line and that will be missed.

It's been a wild week with changes after the disappointing loss to Clemson. I'm sure the next 7 days will bring us more announcements of players leaving and a few staying that we thought would leave early. Looking forward to how the unbelievable 2017 recruiting class finishes in February and Urban's plan to revitalize our offense next year. It's still a great time to be a buckeye fan! Lot's to be optimistic about.
Comment 01 Jan 2017
After last night's offensive disaster, there's no doubt changes need to be made. Urban has his plate full in figuring out who to replace. Our line has been below average, JT has clearly regressed, and few of the receivers are improving. We are very young in many areas but scoring 0 points last night was downright embarrassing! I hope to never see an Ohio State offensive performance that abysmal the rest of my life! Hopefully Urban will get to the bottom of these issues and make drastic changes next year. I'm confident it will get done but won't be easy.
Comment 17 Dec 2016
Just wondering when guys are going to graduate at the end of their junior year and skip their senior season of high school to get a head start on their college football career? I'm sure this is the new norm but it's kind of sad these guys don't get to finish out their high school days through the entire senior year with friends and the fun experiences you can have. I'm not against guys enrolling early if that's what they want to do. I know each person matures at different rates and a lot of them are ready to move on and start their college days but it's kind of sad that it's come to this across college football to get a head start.
Comment 15 Dec 2016
The Buckeyes still have an unbelievable class going and it will get even better by signing day. I don't fault him for going with the home school. It's not a surprise nor a recruiting upset. They need good players if they can ever have another chance of beating us on the field. The rivalry will get even more intense. Still don't think it was right for him to make Meyer and co believe he was wavering and having them risk traveling through bad weather conditions Sunday and waste their time.
Comment 13 Dec 2016
I find it really hard to believe that Meyer, Coombs and Smith risked traveling through a snowstorm Sunday night to meet with DPJ if they didn't feel like they had a good shot of landing him. It's strange that he hasn't responded to Tate Martell's texts lately, which doesn't look good. I'm not getting my hopes up and even without him we'll have an unbelievable class this year.
Comment 11 Dec 2016
I think we'll get at least 2 interceptions against the Tigers. We'll win if we can win the turnover battle and get consistent pressure on Watson. I don't think Clemson has faced a defense as good as Ohio State this year. However, our offensive line will need to play well against their defensive line.
Comment 10 Dec 2016
I think Wade loves all this attention and he's trying to keep everyone guessing. He seems like a great player and will make a big addition to this class if he doesn't change his mind. I want guys who are excited about playing for Ohio State and really want to be Buckeyes. I hope that is his mindset and he is completely sure of his college decision.
Comment 01 Dec 2016
Welcome aboard Mr. Browning! You have made a great choice and you will not regret joining the Buckeyes! Boom!!!!
Comment 30 Nov 2016
I had a feeling this would happen soon with Werner decommiting the other day after his Ohio State visit. Let's hope we can land 2 blue chip LB's in his place. Browning and Werner would be great.
Comment 29 Nov 2016
Here's how I see it playing out this weekend: Alabama over Florida, Clemson squeaks by Virginia Tech, Colorado beats Washington and Wisconsin wins ugly over Penn State. The committee and powers that be would love to have a #1 Alabama vs. #4 Michigan match-up and #2 Ohio State vs #3 Clemson. They ratings will be ridiculous for the championship game for every scenario except maybe a Clemson vs. Michigan (God forbid!) title game. I'm confident that the Buckeyes will be at #2 or #3 at worst next weekend when the dust settles. It would be amazing if it was an all big ten national championship. On the flip side it would be a little unfair we'd have to beat ttun twice but could it get any better than that? Talk about an unbelievable way to end your season.
Comment 22 Nov 2016
#1- Beat Ttun Saturday #2- Beat Meatchicken Saturday #3- Beat scUM Saturday and we'll be in. That's all that matters for Ohio State to advance! Go Bucks!!
Comment 16 Nov 2016
I would like nothing more than for the Buckeyes to take the Spartans to the woodshed and win by 50 or more after last year's debacle at home! With the weather not looking to good and all this playoff talk, I anticipate it could be a lot closer game than it should. Let's hope the Buckeyes are focused and block out the distractions.
Comment 16 Nov 2016
I can see a scenario where Louisville stumbles against Houston on Thursday and Washington loses again to either WSU or in the Pac-12 championship game. Those teams would be out of the picture for sure. Clemson could lose again as they aren't exactly peaking right now. I don't think you'll have anyone from the Big-12 in there either. That sets things up perfectly for the B1G to get 2 teams in this year, especially since the SEC is down other than Bama. Should be an interesting last 3 weeks!
Comment 15 Nov 2016
Let's hope the players and coaches are completely focused on beating MSU this week or this playoff ranking talk will be useless! I'm still sore that they beat us at home with all our future NFL talent last year! It cost us another shot to defend our title. We must take care of business these next 2 games and then we should be in a great position. This team has really exceeded expectations going into the season. Let's continue this fun ride! Go Bucks!
Comment 13 Nov 2016
This will be the year a new precedent is set with the CFPC selecting a non champion from a power 5 conference which will be the Buckeyes IF they win out. With Ohio State's resume of who they beat and finishing with one loss I believe it will be too hard to justify leaving them out. The Buckeyes will be #2 this week and should not fall below #4 if they win out. It could be a blessing in disguise if they don't have to play in the big ten championship and beat Wisconsin twice in the same season. If the committee leaves the Buckeyes out with only 1 loss, then it's set in stone that you have to win your conference championship and there will never be a good reason to put a team in the playoff who did not win it's conference championship, Period! A lot can happen in these next two weeks with all the teams still alive but I'm optimistic about the Buckeyes chances if they win out. They must take care of business and with the big 12 and pac10 being down the door is open for this scenario to happen.

It's too bad some people have no sense of humor with the Jim Tressel least favorite moment. He was very conservative with play calling and loved the kicking game. Tressel did a lot of great things for Ohio State but he lacked offensive creativity and was not at the level of Urban Meyer when it comes to recruiting and motivating players. I often find myself saying "what would Tress do in this situation" because he played so conservative most of the time and loved a defensive struggle.
Comment 16 Oct 2016
Ok, I missed that you said loss and added Urban Meyer era. That makes sense now.
