This is more of a compliment to Brown than insult to Spencer, but I see Brown making a bigger impact in the receiving game than Spencer. If he can provide Spencer's intangibles (I understand few can) while being more of a receiving threat, he won't be soon forgotten by the time he leaves here.
"And the King of the SEC has fallen." Might be my favorite line all year.
Massillon hired Nate Moore in late January. Coach Moore coached our football team (Minster High School) in 2011, the same time I was there, and he then took the La Salle job. I was hoping Clark would stay with Massillon when he was hired, but appartently that won't be the case.
I can see the logic. We have a higher ceiling as a team than most (dominating Maryland for example), but also a low floor. To win the tournament you can't just be a solid consistent team, you need signs of greatness and I think Ohio State has shown that at times throughout the year. With a talent like Russell anything can happen in the Sweet-Sixteen and further if he is hot.
Shocked by the lack of Notre Dame responses. Dominating them would strengthen our threshold as the best in the Mid-West.
Alabama would be sweet again as well. Solidifies Meyer vs. Saban argument and beating the best of the SEC again would shove it down ESPN's throat even further with their bias.
Also, TCU for reasons stated above.
Agreed, I think this ass-clown put in a good effort of undermining our resume. Unfortunately for him it came up short.
For all I know 305 we are in some of the same classes together. Full time student studying Finance as well.
As much as I would love this to be true, i'll believe it when I see it. If this does happen look out, because next year's team would have a lot of talent.
I remember UFM saying early in the season he would be out around 8 weeks with a knee injury. So to answer your question his injury this year likely slowed down his development. If he's 100% this spring i'm sure he'll be in the battle with Farris and Jones. May the best man win.
Curious to know which option is most likely if Guarantano ends up at Rutgers. Seems like a lot of these guys want to commit early and the longer we wait on Guarantano the less picky we may have to be.
This was my first thought as well. Knowing we have landed Walker and them being so close i'm surprised Birm doesn't see us as the favorite. This obviously wouldn't help with Gary either.
Obviously disappointing news, but with Burrows and Gibson plus Clark in '17 I don't see quarterback being a huge need. Obviously this passed season showed you can never have too many great ones, but don't think this is awful news as it may be perceived.
Follow up question, how long does Ohio State wait on his decision and who on Ohio State's board rank after him? Haskins and Pass?
Tough to say Hubbard since we haven't seen him play. Holmes didn't get redshirted for a reason. I know a lot of Hubbard's redshirting was about finding him a position but there's still something to be said about seeing solid minutes as a true freshman.
My thinking as well. I think even before the final rankings he was either the #1 or #2 dual-threat quarterback but dropped because he couldn't play his senior year due to his ACL tear.
Would love to land some big receivers this class, and Layne would be a great start. Aside from Stump this last class, we haven't landed any big Split Ends/Flankers 6'1+ in the last three classes (considering Noah Brown a H-Back/TE type, at least for now).
Point is I think some big prototype receivers are a need for this team and this class.
Did the idea of playing alongside two other great linebackers and/or other great players in the class impact your decision at all, or did you decide on Ohio State strictly because it was for you?
There are two seasons during the year: football season and waiting for football season. One we want to move swiftly and never does, the other we want to slow down and never does. Can't wait till September 7th!
Haha you could argue it strengthens the point I was trying to make. No problem though!
I'm going with the guy you left off the list, Devin Smith. I hope we can find a playmaker somewhat of his caliber, he was a game changer. I think he's one of those guys who you don't truly appreciate until he is gone, he'll be missed.
Respect: Sparty and Texas. Have had nothing but great experiences with their fans and appreciate how they do things.
Disrespect: Bobby Petrino, Art Briles, and Auburn. It's a long list for Petrino, Briles more recently for his handling of the CFP, and Auburn seems so shaddy (Cam Newton, etc...)
Because Burrow's position coach didn't leave the day after signing day when he still had a solid amount of time to make a different decision. Weber can't go back on his decision, Burrow had plenty of time to do so.
Because judging by Weber's tweet he had no idea this was happening. I could be wrong and hope I am, but he certainly seemed surprised by the move. Also, I just don't buy that the staff had no idea Drayton was going to take this job or at least have a solid chance in getting it. IF that's the case I think they have the obligation to tell the recruit that. I don't want recruits being deceived to play a part into coming to Ohio State. Just an opinion, would love to be wrong but unfortunately I doubt we ever find out the whole story.
