Definitely a group play, otherwise it gets very repetitive. I felt the same about Destiny too, but Wildlands open world makes it easy to keep exploring, but no replay ability really.
How the hell did we find out he had a kid? Especially since he never once mentions it on his Twitter...
I'm usually very optimistic when it comes to recruiting, but I just don't have any confidence that the kid picks the good guys. Late interest in OSU just won't be enough to overcome Mom. Hope I'm wrong.
Scoonie Penn said the same thing. Thompson, WIlliams, Scott class were all highly rated kids who came in and rode the bench which didn't sit well with AAU circles. Granted they were actually behind some solid players and clearly weren't instant impact kids but still that doesn't sit well with AAU folks. Can't really blame Thad for that decision tho.
Again only chance this team has if if KBD somehow develops into a first round pick and Tate develops a jumper and shoots 70% from the line. Both are highly unlikely...
There have been a handful of Ohio kids who we have lost out on, none of which went to UC. Eichenberg and Kraemer (ND) are the two biggest examples. Some guys who I believe had "real" offers that went elsewhere: OG Bockhurst (Clemson), Both LB Ferns (MICH/WVU), LJ Scott (MSU), Shaun Crawford (ND), OT Jimmy Byrne (ND), Shelton Gibson (WVU), Dymonte Thomas (MICH), Kyle Kalis (MICH), Chris Wormley (MICH). Ifeadi Odenigbo (NW).
What is crazy is the drop-off of Ohio kids Michigan has been able to pull under Harbaugh. He has been recruiting well nationally but generally avoiding all highly ranked Ohio kids for the most part. And Urban has been able to cherry pick some top end kids from Michigan (i.e. Weber, Jordan). Harbaugh is employing the opposite strategy ofHoke.
So then the AD gets the credit for the success of the football program? I don't think the majority of this fanbase understands the roles and responsibilities of an Athletic Director.
30 year olds batting .230 in Single A ball don't often make The Show. This is strictly a publicity stunt still, as it always has been. That being said if Tebow dedicated to baseball out of high school instead of football, I would bet a ton of money he would already be a veteran in the majors at this point.
If Urban wants Hawkins, he will get Hawkins. I could see this recruitment going the distance until the staff agree to go in for Hawkins.
AJ Alexander played quite a bit last year since he was our #2 TE. He definitely belongs in Some Impact category.
WR is going to be very interesting this cycle. Babb has been a constant for awhile, but Eagles has been gaining traction as well. Outside of that? Not a whole lot.
Going to be a less top heavy draft but could be one of the deepest ever. I think Baugh surprises people this year. Parris definitely has the best potential to be drafted out of all the WR's.
This is a really big red flag in a long list of red flags. The 2018 class was Thad's saving grace with Baz, Cohill, Hunter, Goodwin and Ahrens all in Ohio. Losing yet another top 50 Ohio kid is not good, let alone the fact that Baz hasn't even started to be recruited by the Blue Bloods yet. I could understand if one of the Big 6 schools were on him hard, but from my understanding this was strictly him not feeling confident in the program. Can you blame him?
Not yet, but that's not going to stop NFL Teams from backing away.
Sounds like Urban is taking this one on himself, we usually know how that ends up. Will be interesting to see with two Safeties already comitted however.
0% chance he goes in the first round now. After being a lock two days ago. Someone might take a chance on him in the middle rounds but an open rape charge is not something NFL teams want to gamble with. He is out millions of dollars, regardless of his innocence. If he is found guilty, then I hope he never gets a penny.
He and the witnesses deny any sexual contact. There's no hiding now, the Rape Kit will determine what actually happened. Where the extreme gray area comes in is if he admitted to having consensual sex with her, while she claimed it was rape.
So im 99% sure coaches are not able to speak in-person with the recruits currently besides a quick hello. Not sure how these coaches are putting in "work" at the schools besides having conversations with the coaching staffs. Anyone else have better clarification?
One of the rare recruits who committs to a power like Ohio State and performs so well in season/camp/all-star games that his rating rises from everyone. I know how stacked we are at DE, but this kid is a three year player. Clock starts ticking as soon as he steps foot on campus. He won't be redshirting.
Thought at first we might have had a chance since he was such a late bloomer, but we are running a distant third here.
Just guessing he was there with his son just like the Jackets game earlier this week,
I wouldn't get your hopes up here :/ sorry
Didn't win Conference Tournament and blown out in the 2nd round of the NCAA tournament. Wasn't a talented team, padded wins with a weak schedule and god awful B1G.
Agreed with not trusting the WRS yet. All we heard about was Bin Victor all Spring long and to be honest he looked extremely raw still. Never went and attacked the ball and used his size to his advantage. I still think he has far and away the most potential on the team, but there's a reason Urban has been listing him behind Campbell, Dixon, TMC etc.
It's as easy as this. The program is devoid of talent throughout the roster. That is attributed to one of two things: 1.) Poor talent evaluation and the inability to land elite recruits 2.) Poor player development
I think we can all agree its a combination of these two things going on within this program. Unfortunately for Thad, those are the two highest priorities of a head basketball coach.
