I'm not going to discount this is possible.

To me though, it is far more likely that they keyed in on our pre-snap giveaways formations and motion. When the whole stadium can tell what you're running before it happens, it will not succeed against a well schooled defense. Playcalling was elementary; but I'm tired of beating the dead horse.

Comment 26 Oct 2015

Agreed for the most part - posted it more because of being stunned that the pattern of behavior continues...

Comment 26 Oct 2015

I could see a team that has an established QB picking him with the thought that he'd be learning for a couple of years behind current starter. Teams like NYG, NO, AZ, DAL, and CHI come to mind. I think 3rd round but can't see him dropping below the 5th.

Comment 14 Oct 2015

I'm sure we will never get the true reason and not sure we need to but I think this situation speaks volumes about the overall philosophy/attitude of the OSU staff with Meyer at the helm. Walker is (eventually) gone, Williams is (eventually) in. I think this shows that OSU is moving on with or without Player X and that while visits might be OK, visits to the biggest rival and kept mum will not be tolerated.

I think OSU does not want a situation where they have Player X committed all the way until crunch time and then get burned without having a Player Y to fill in his place.

Comment 14 Oct 2015

"Walker's recruitment has had plenty of ups and downs, and current speculation is that he'll re-open his recruitment within the next few days. That has been spurred on by Ohio State welcoming Antonio Williams, a four-star running back committed to Wisconsin, to campus this weekend for an unofficial visit."

I don't care about all the tweeting in either direction; this is the most important part of this to me. Not so much about what is being said but about what is being done.

Comment 13 Oct 2015

Not going to speculate much other than say "when there is smoke, there (usually) is fire." So while I may not think has the scoop, it would not surprise me if they end up being right.

Could be that Williams is coming up because Hill is looking elsewhere. I would guess* it's Walker but we won't know until someone reputable reports it. 

Also, regardless of what happens, I echo the other sentiments of posters here. Stay classy. Try to put yourself in the position of these kids and think about making a school choice for 4 years when there are so many good options. Oh and on top of that you are a 5 star football talent and the #1 rated in your class at your position. It isn't easy; I'm sure if it was one of us, we wouldn't want to hear how bad we sucked because we decided to go somewhere other than OSU.

I recruiting

Recruiting is fun

Recruiting. Period.

Comment 12 Oct 2015

Not officially decommitted but I share that sentiment. When a very touted, highly-ranked prospect makes a commitment early on in the process and from OOS, it almost always remains a struggle all the way until NSD. I think Urban himself has said a verbal commitment really just means you are in a recruit's top 3. I would say this holds true right now.

Comment 12 Oct 2015

I think the "tell" will be this weekend - make or break. If he makes it to AA for the UM-MSU battle, watch out. Michigan is building some momentum right now plus seems to have the NJ connection going for them.

An OV followed up by a UV the very next weekend is a hard thing to overlook. Regardless of what he says, his recruitment is very open IMO. OSU will need to knock it out of the park on his OV. I think this is to be expected though; we are talking the #1 RB in the nation after all. 

Really hope he sticks as he looks to be a perfect fit for an OSU RB; won't be surprised if he doesn't though as UM (along with ASU and Bama) will be in his ear until early enrollment or NSD. I will say this - the above statement is a very classy and mature statement. I don't think he owed it to anyone but you can see how level-headed he is, which is very cool to see in the modern era of college football recruiting.

Comment 09 Oct 2015

I'm not going to lose any sleep over this development. There's nothing the fans can do to change a recruit's mind. But being negative is childish and a waste of time.

Just my $0.02 but the whole "Come to OSU or lose to OSU" thing is over-played. I'm not personally attacking anyone; I just think the statement is said in poor taste because we have a spoiled fan base that occasionally gets a taste of sour grapes. This is the nature of the (recruiting) beast. We will always have to fight off other schools (especially Michigan) if we want to sign top-rated recruiting classes. 

Anyone who is sitting on this thread and debating whether or not Kareem Walker is a good football player because news surfaced that he is taking an OV (or even an UV) to UM (or any school for that matter) should be ashamed. This guy is a HELL of a player (from what I can see on tape) and one that the Buckeyes would be extremely excited to have for the next 3-4 years! The staff obviously wants him and the fans do to. There is little need to get defensive of OSU because he is taking a visit elsewhere. I'm sure there are more visits coming as well. It looks bad on the OSU fanbase when we take to the Internet to voice displeasure over a guy taking visits to other schools.

If he signs with Michigan or anywhere else than OSU, I personally will be bummed out because I think he can be a stud here but I'm not going to take it personally and then come bash Kareem Walker on an Internet message board. Kids do what's right for them to help them become men. Nobody can fault them for choosing another school if they sign elsewhere. 

At any rate, I figure my rant should end now...Go Bucks! Beat Maryland!

Comment 05 Oct 2015

Oh damn....the socks make this totally worthwhile.

Burn me at the stake, I've never had a problem with all the Oregon alternates and I think they have some pretty good looks out of their 100s of possibilities. Would I want that many combos for the Bucks? Hell no. But does Oregon have the tradition of Ohio State? Hell no.

Overall, I can get onboard with this uni.

Comment 31 Aug 2015

Two more I've heard in the recent past:

Few years back at Augusta, Phil is off the back side of 15 green and has no angle to the pin. He hits a pretty miraculous shot/putt that comes to rest 3-5 feet from the hole for the ensuing birdie. Feherty says, "Phil is watching a movie that only he can see in his head."

Couple of weeks back at the PGA, Matt Jones hits a hook into the crap well below the green surface on hole 16 or 17 (par 3). He has to hit a miraculous shot to even hit the green as he needs to come over the railroad ties with a high trajectory shot that needs to get up rather quickly. The CBS telecast starts zooming in towards his lie and Feherty goes: "This lie....sigh....I'm not sure the devil himself could've placed the ball in a worse place."

Haha the man is pure comedy gold if you ask me.

USC wanted to keep the locker room alcohol but Coach Sark was abusing his privileges

Comment 24 Aug 2015

They can't hit him if they can't catch him!

In all seriousness, this is one of my concerns of Brax switching to the H-Back position - as much as I love #5 - er....#1 - he has a history of being injury prone. I think he has packed on some solid muscle though in the offseason in order to endure more hits and that he will adjust just fine.

Looking for big things from one of my fave Buckeyes of all time this fall!

Comment 19 Aug 2015

Very enlightening post - cool to have that insight - thank you for sharing Brohio. I personally enjoy the new looks that Nike delivers - at least the vast majority of them!

Comment 19 Aug 2015

While Kirk is a bit of a tool (or at least appears/comes across that way on TV) and definitely overuses the football clichés (speed, swagger, in space, etc.), I don't hate the guy nor do I think he is unduly harsh towards the Buckeyes. I think he is a diehard but has to be neutral, which is hard to do on camera. I think he loves his university and I've never doubted that.

I also think he pointed out some true shortcomings of Buckeye football during the Tressel years. (I love Tress too so don't go bashing me for what I'm about to say...) Tress's Buckeye teams, as good as they were, cannot compare to Urban's Buckeye teams. We are on a whole 'nother level right now. 

Anyhow, Happy Birthday Kirk!
