You often see when OSU signs a 3 star recruit comments along the lines of "trust Meyer and the staff". If Meyer, Coombs, Fickell, Ash, etc. thought Conley was a better corner than Webb or whomever coming out of spring ball, trust them. I have just seen comments, not ripping the kid so much as not having faith in him because he had a rough outing vs a very good team as a redshift freshman. JT Barrett improved a lot as a redshirt freshman after a few starts with experience and coaching. It isn't out of the realm of possibility Conley could do the same.

I have to ask also, was he not that great of a pro prospect? Was it the system and style of football that helped him garner so many tackles? Some of the tackle numbers from guys like him, Spielman, etc are insane. I know Spielman had a good NFL career.

Seniority should be a factor but not the end all be all. OSU is loaded so seniority is probably more of a factor. If a team isn't that talented and the best overall player is a sophomore, then I would rather hear him speak than a senior.

That being a more logical way is a a matter of opinion. I don't think there is any way I'd really knowing if it will be easier to repeat in BCS playoffs. There are major differences in the playoffs. I believe 16 teams make the D3 playoffs, so you make a great point about 1 loss not screwing you, but I would be curious to see how many repeat champs had multiple losses. I think it would be hard to make the BCS playoffs with two losses. Personally I don't think it will be that much easier to repeat with this new format with only 4 teams. EDIT- the amour of repeat champions in D3 has more to do than a lack of parity more than a playoff system. Mount Union and Wisconsin Whitewater have met for the championship 9 times in the past 10 years. I do not forsee ever a situation where say OSU and Alabama play each other 9 times in 10 years regardless of format.

I am not sure those are great comparisons. Yeah, those guys aren't great shooters, but they are ridiculously explosive athletes and NBA All-Stars. All high draft picks. There may be a place for Craft, like there is for Patrick Beverly's or Nate Robinson's offense. I just it isn't right to compare him to athletes that have proven themselves to be freaks at the NBA level.

To each their own. Their show has lasted a long time. Greenie is a NW alum and Golic an ND degree, they have some amount of talent. I hate Cowherd so this is great news.

I don't have a problem with the eye test. As stated above, OSU probably got in the playoff due to the eye test. Statistics are great, but to me they are more reliable in professional leagues than amateur leagues. There are lots of variables in college sports such as conference strength and schedule thata in my opinion makes statistics harder to judge than say the NFL or MLB. I guess another way to put it is pro statistics > college statistics > high school statistics. The eye test has to be factor at least.

I kind of agree. I love the fight song, Script Ohio, , Carmen Ohio. The uniforms are fine, although I like grey stripes .I am an alum, some of the sights and sounds give me the chills. The only thing that kind of annoys me is Hang On Sloopy. Does nothing for me, and its kind of dated.
