Well, you can't exactly punch an opposing player and think you're going to have a job the next day.
Did it say how old he is? If he's only 16 he might luck out and get charged as a juvenile meaning prison might be off the table. Either way, his once promising football career is likely over or at the very least cause him to take a very different path.
What are these people smoking to think Iowa, Missouri, and Minn have top 10 Non conf schedules or better than OSU? How is FSU not #1? This list is awful.
4.39 is blazing fast...but it's considerably slower(I use the term slow loosely) than 4.26. I was wrong about Shazier, I had him mixed up with another player. My main point is not that OSU players are slow...only that the home clock is always faster that what players end up "officially" running.
Roby and Shazier didn't run close to those times at the combine though. The home clock is always a little fast.
I agree, not sure how this is something to be proud of.
That being said, I really don't buy what that writer is trying to sell. You can tell by the style of writing that he/she is not an credentialed journalist.
I think this is a generational thing(granted I have no idea how old you are). Personally, I really don't like noon games. The atomosphere is dead and it clearly shows on TV and at times on the field with the players. Night games and even 3:30 games allow for the anticipation to build...especially for marquee games. I get the noon time slot is part of the B1G/OSU tradition but at some point you have to get with the times or you'll be left behind.
Has there ever been a poll question on this topic?
If you lose your last game you are not one of the best 4 teams,ever.
Wonder if you would feel this way if OSU lost in the B1G title game to an undefeated (insert highly ranked team name) in a game where (insert star player) did not play but would be available for the playoffs? Would you immediately dismiss OSU from the playoff discussion?
Nice strawman deflection...
1) Read what you wrote. You can't "joke' about something, then claim it's starting to happen, then say you're joking.
2) As of this posting, show me where CINCYOSU brought up ESPN in this thread...this might take you awhile.
3) My name isn't Matt and I've never posted on Scout, the only other account I own is on Bucknuts(never go there anymore) and I have the same username. But think what you want if it helps you sleep.
So there's a conspiracy to drop OSU players(Cornell), yet in the same statement you give them props for moving Hilliard up in the rankings? You can't play on both sides of the fence...
If you have Netflix you need to check out House of Cards...great show to binge watch.
That's funny seeing as most consider one of the most courageous things those in the military do is serve their country while being away from their families.
It appears I'm not the one who is "butthurt". And just because you're a teenage it doesn't exempt you from saying something stupid. This isn't the first time you've questioned a recruits work ethic or character...remember the post you deleted a few days ago??? You can direct your little tantrum at me but I'm not the only one who finds it pathetic to question recruits for making a choice they feel is right for THEIR life. Do you not think there are challenges are other programs? Do you not think it takes courage to move across the country away from your family? Just because you may find it an honor to play at OSU doesn't mean they have to share that opinion.
And you do have the right to state your opinion, just don't get mad when someone calls you our for it when it crosses the line...especially when it comes to questioning the character of a 17 year old kid.
I just don't get why these kids don't want the challenges of Ohio State it just doesn't make sense to me
Isn't it possible that they simply felt another school was a better fit for them? Isn't it possible that they felt another school offered them a better opportunity? But I guess it's just easier to criticize a teenager who is trying to make the biggest decision of his life.
And it doesn't have to make sense to you, it's their life and their decision.
Good post, disagree about Hazell though. He was a good recruiter at OSU and considered by many to be Tressel's successor had Tressel not been forced out earlier than planned.
If you commit to a Big Ten school, you drop to a 2 or 3 star which screws up the rankings.
Come on now, even IF you buy into the ESPN bias side of the argument that's only one of the big 4 recruiting services. Are you now saying that Scout, Rivals, and 247 are in on the OSU/Big Ten fix? That's just a lazy excuse...the B1G(other than OSU and a few others) has recruited poorly the last few years and it has nothing to do with player ratings mysteriously dropping after committing.
A lot of the B1G's recruiting issues come down to coaching and until B1G schools start to pony up the cash to get quality head coaches, and more importantly assistants, we will continue to lag behind collectively in the rankings.
I mean can you explain what goes through your head when choosing to insult a teenager over something so trivial. We all love sports and OSU football but what possesses you to get so worked up as to act like this...in a public setting no less. I hope Ramzy includes you in his next article.
Come on Andy, I'm not saying it doesn't happen(and not just in the SEC) but you can't use that excuse every time the SEC wins a recruiting battle.
Ding Ding Ding...we have the early clubhouse leader for the d!ckhead of the day comment. Way to insult the kids intelliegience because he didn't pick your favorite school. Stay classy there fella.
Maybe it's hard because some here actually believe it. Notice I apologized to the poster, but thanks for the follow up.
This Bag Man stuff is getting really old.
Edit: If you were being sarcastic, I apologize....just getting tired of seeing this every time the SEC is mentioned as if this is the only reason schools have success.
I'd be scared
Why do we always have to do this when recruits pick a school other than OSU. You have no idea why he made his decision....HIS decision. We really need to stop attacking kids for choosing what they feel is right for THEIR future.
Are you saying the B1G is better than the SEC? Or that they are better than what they get credit for?
