I agree, we just don't have the time to slow play an important position like RB. We have been courting Harris for what seems like an eternity. If Harris was still interested, he should of conveyed that message during his home visit with Meyer. His tweet, is interesting though especially when he included the Question Mark.
Where did you hear this? please explain further and provide any sources.
Still curious as to why we haven't seen more of Frazier and more substitutions in general along the DLine this year? At the beginning of the year, LJ stressed the importance of keeping guys fresh and rotating them allowing the younger guys to get experience and game reps.
It literally took me like 10 minutes to post my original comment, in between reading and doing other things. By that time you guys had already kissed and made up. Since you promised, I guess I believe you.
The majority of the insight and opinions provided by BamaMike is requested by other posters. God forbid we discuss other teams let alone our opponents. DWright, please do not waste your time or energy reading these threads. Your absence will be quite welcomed. On an afternoon where everyone should be celebrating, no need to be a dick.

Welcome to the world of DV's. Why insult the student athletes (incorrectly I might add) and then encourage them to do great things? As Urban mentioned, he had nothing to do with their decisions and wished them the best.
Sorry I must have missed it, when did Underwood and Carter announce they would not be returning. I thought at one point Underwood was in the two-deep and in consideration for starting before injuries took there toll. Same with Carter, I thought there was talk of him being a situational guy, possibly goal line run stuffer. I frequent the site often and can't remember for the life of me any news about those two.
Never mind, it was staring me in the face the whole time.
I believe the word you were looking for was "faculties" not "facilities". Sorry had to point that out after getting a good laugh out of it. I wholeheartedly agree with you though.
Please comment on your own topic so I can rightfully DV u.
I was going to question your topic title, starting with the word "Another" before confirming that both Miller and Hyde went over 1,000 rushing yards. Can't believe that slipped my mind that Miller broke a 1,000 yards too.
As to your question, I will say both go over a 1,000 yards rushing by the end of the football season, including BIG championship game and playoffs.
Thank you for clearing the Townsend situation up. I don't believe I ever got the full story and the amount of details you provided above. I always thought against the notion that tOSU pushed him out due to a numbers crunch.
Brought back some fond memories Douevenurbz. Wow, it is crazy how fluid recruiting is. Just goes to show that predicting an incoming recruiting class truly is a crap shoot. Out of the list you provided, we have only 4 players currently committed and a couple considered targets still. As its been said (and I totally agree), no matter the players, the class as a whole will be ranked in the top 10. The number of instate Ohio recruits is pretty dead-on though. Currently we are sitting at 10 while the prediction list totals 10. Interesting to compare the two.
The problem with that strategy is recruits are committing sooner and sooner these days. In the past, maybe a kid ends up committing before we really turn up the juice and attention towards him. Than we are spending our time trying to flip said recruit. Just a possible chink in the armor of that strategy. Can't afford to let Liam slip away and go to an out of state school.
Keep in mind when Braxton was unavailable to practice, JT was splitting reps with Cardale who was labeled Braxton's #2 (July 28th) just a short time ago. So the game plan had to be tweaked to accommodate JT. I do agree with the play calling. I feel Herman tries to be too cute at times. The 4th and 1 or maybe it was 3rd and 1 when we called the read option which failed miserable by the goal line was a prime example. I know the center of the line is young, but Elliot up the middle or even a QB sneak is what I was yelling for.
UV and welcome my fellow Buckeye Fan.
Step away from the mouse....In all seriousness, better to just ignore and move on. No need to stop posting and contributing b/c of DV's.
Thank you for all your contributions. You will be missed.
I can literally never get enough of that video. I just wished he didn't end the video so soon so we all could of enjoyed a prolonged monumental meltdown.
If I'm not mistaken, Hale was moved to the O line and to my knowledge will be staying there his senior year. I'm sure if injuries pile up on the D line side of things he could certainly move back. He actually received several compliments during practice so far. More along the lines of him being very athletic and having good leverage during run blocking but really raw and lacking technique which one would expect during a position change.
I wouldn't say he ran out of options. He had 12 or so offers and could of reopened communication with several of those schools if he had chosen to. He technically could of dragged out his search like MM for another month or so. I'm pretty sure Rutgers (De-commitment U), WVU or possibly BC would of gladly accepted his commitment. MSU gave him an ultimatum - sign or look for another school. All Slade had to know about tOSU was LJ Sr. was now the new D-Line coach. Their relationship was several years in the making and it just so happened that tOSU had an available scholly to offer. Coaches, especially position coaches, are a tremendous influence on a prospective recruit these days. Take Vrabel leaving and the sudden urge for Jamarco to visit MSU as an example. Overall, Urban liked what he saw on film and with LJ Sr.'s track record of finding hidden gems and developing them into NFL caliber players, the stars just happened to align perfectly. With all the out of state talent we have been collecting, we as fans have to adjust to the fact that not all of our commitments have been brought up to HATE the school up north or bleed Scarlet and Grey since they were able to walk and talk. Just the new national recruiting philosophy being applied by Urban. The pros heavily out weigh any cons at this point and constant Top 5 or better classes will continue to yield success on the field.
I was taking the time to re-watch the highlight videos of each recruit and Sam Hubbard really jumps off the screen. Always flying around and making plays. Still not sure why the discrepancy in Star Ratings between services but he is going to be player. Maybe it's his height that makes him look out of place - a 6'6'' safety. He looks like he was shot out of a cannon when tracking down the ball and delivering hits. He is going to be one to watch and I can't wait to follow his career at tOSU.
John, just wanted to say thanks and appreciate the hard work. It was nice to see the potential recruit breakdown by positions and OSU need. It is a great time to be a Buckeye. Any combination of 5 players from your list would definitely put this class over the top. I do agree that it does start and end with Lattimore being one of those 5 though.
Why the DV's?
Don't think it was his neighbor. I actually think it was his mail man that was the Buckeye fan. Splitting hairs I know, but what are the chances your mail man is a Buckeye fan and cleverly has been putting all OSU material to the top.
Different positions so hard to compare. One tackle the other guard. Prince is the more highly rated of the two.
