The kid looked pretty damn good in that spring game too. Im the type to give credit where I think its due, and if I was a QB thinking bout committing to psu and seen him in action during that spring game I might think twice. I'll admit I didn't watch it all but from what I seen he had command of the offense was throwing back shoulder fades and had a quick accurate release. Id bet the kid is going to be a gamer and takes over after HackaFurBurger leaves.
Meyer himself was the one interviewed and mentioned EzE as first string and Samuel as second. The spring game kind of reaffirmed that also. Rod Smith,Warren Ball,and Brionte Dunn have a very similar skillset to EzE. If he is going to be the workhorse and Curtis is going to get the change of pace type of carries as a speed back then the hype could be justified. Urban said they need to find out if his body and mind are going to be able to hold up to the grind of the B1G. Wilson has been moved to a fulltime WR. Samuel very well could play the role that everyone thought Wilson would play last year. They said Wilsons body just wasn't big enough to block and take the beating and it is well known that not only did Samuel come in early unlike Wilson but Curtis also walked onto campus a good 20 lbs. heavier then Wilson did and has a few extra months to get more prepared. I feel you on we should be reserved on expectations but in some circumstances everything lines up for a total eclipse.
That's what I mean Seattle there are so many kids with superstar qualities it is unreal. Shit even the recruiting sites cant make up their minds,we have 4 LBers and each one has a 5* on a different site. Really think its going to at minimum be the best defensive class Ive seen in my lifetime and the offense wont be too far behind. The 3 Ohio LBers and Lattimore and Erick Smith are going to make the Ohio boys bring the real silver bullets back for the next 4 years.CAN'T WAIT !!!
We have to hope that our staff is just being super selective at the moment. I honestly think once we get one or two big names committed it is going to snowball fast. Kids commit for a shit ton of different reasons and right now our staff cant use the class is filling up and only a couple spots left approach. I have faith we will have a top ten class but I think we could have a number 1 with a bullet type class if we could get TG then Damien Harris and Christian Kirk and so on and so on. Once a piss hole starts in the damn the whole freaking thing is going to come crashing down and flood the town previously known as the B1G.
Almost 99.9% of people would have been arrested and had DNA took as soon as identified. Complete and utterly sick coverup on FSU and the Tallahassee PD. They should be the ones that have to pay the piper. I honestly think either him or one of his friends dropped something in her drink. And for the shit turds that say nothing showed up in her system the prosecutor admitted some things would have already have left her system and a couple of other things were not even checked for. They weren't testing her to find out if she was roofied they were testing her to try to prove she was intoxicated. Even if he didn't do anything wrong knowingly it they sure did damn make it seem like he did by butchering the whole case.
This will go down as one of the best classes in tOSU history. Not talking bout rankings im talking on the field production. This class will definitely take us to a playoff at minimum once and I'd put a left nutt on that. I just wish Dante Booker and Dame Webb could have enrolled early too because both young men are going to go down in our History books.
The little bar next door to my shack is owned and run by die hard buckeye fans. Its awesome cause I can talk all the shit I want and have the full support of the ownership. But we are small and in Hamilton,Ohio but I'll wait to see if anyone has any good ideas because I might be interested in joining a few times a season.
Can we end the drought already and get back to making our rivals lives miserable and full of jealousy?
Don't you ever try to attack this board again with sound statistics and solid logic. People think the players need PAID and doggunit that's all that matters.
Not sure if they played together a different year but Daniel Cage played his senior year at Winton Woods HS,quite a big difference from Moeller. Now Sam Hubbard was Elijahs teammate at Moeller last year. Im absolutely dumbfounded by the late offer to Taylor. Kid is a beast and with us offering Sam before anybody it blows my mind how we would either try to slow play or completely miss on his skill set. I hate when Notre Dame steals talented kids out of the catholic schools down here in Cincy but I feel Coombs teamed with Meyer might be swaying it in our favor a little more then in past years.
Im really impressed with the staffs ability to bring in the help we need at center. This shows it wasn't just our eyes that seen that terrible effort out of Amir. Looks like we have solidified a little depth at the 5 spot for the next couple years with an outside shot to still pull in big boy Turner. I have faith in Matta and feel like with Russel,Scott,Thompson and Lee we have the tools to make a deep run next year. If either of those centers played on this years squad we might have cut down some nets.
You make it seem like a lock...Not sure we would have him visit if we didn't want him. Also there are quite a few other teams on his list that have holes at oline. Would be absolutely awesome to pick him up he was the #1 rated guard 5 years ago and has playing time as a starter in the oh mighty sec west. Just wondering why you are so confident about if we want him we should have him?
While you pretty much nailed this I some how see the Gators sneaking out a win against Georgia. Florida does return 10 defensive starters from one of the best D's when they were all healthy. You are correct they will probably be underdogs but its a rivalry and it gets pretty fierce. I think they hired Dukes OC so they cant possibly be any worse on the offensive side of the ball. I seen a way too early top 25 from Espin and they had enough nerve to put Florida at 25. Muschump will be gone and I wonder if Richt might get replaced too.
His play action play fake is NFL caliber. Watched his film and I also would like to see some more passing before I make a final judgement.
PSU was returning 2 OL starters before the lost their LG due to injury. So they return 1 OL starter and have almost zero bodies to fill those spots. They also lost their main offensive weapon in Allen Robinson who had 1500 yards receiving. This all from a team that only put up 14 points against one of the worst tOSU D's ever. I see no way in hell we lose that game. LJsr. has some bones to pick with them and our whole staff now sees how big it is for recruiting against Franklin. I fully expect one of our better games to take place in Happy Valley.I don't think Urban even keeps it close. 42-10 tOSU
FSU just won a National title and got their redshirt freshman QB a Heisman trophy from playing in the exact same scenario you mention above. And they are favorites to repeat for that same National title and Heisman. If we ever fielded a team as dominate as the one they had last year maybe I could rationalize our conference sucks and needs to step it up. But the fact of the matter is we barely won 4 of our conference games and then lost the most important one all while fielding our best offense in the History of our program. Just because we have a media giant screaming how bad our conference is doesn't make it true. We had very tough conference games to test us and if our opponents would have had a couple of better players here and there maybe we lose a couple more of those close games.
If he was to hypothetically commit to KU they would easily have the best PF,SF,and center coming in anyone know how they are looking at the 1 and 2 spots?
~~giving him less time than the won Barrett was operating behind. Practice is where the job will be one.
Maybe check the use of the words "one" and "won" before attacking posters credibility....Nice save you repay me with a DV for me helping you from looking like a jackass.
Haha this is flippin awesome.
Yea cause God knows they will be handing out their free "WHITEOUT" shirts when daddy rolls into town.
Wow I hope it just isn't a smear piece on tOSU fans when we see news stories almost every week about Bama and Burn fans shooting people,poisoning trees and going to prison regularly over their fandome. If you want crazy stories about out of touch with reality fans the sec is the place to be digging for certain.
If we could make the scarlet metallic stripe on the helmet a little more narrower and maybe change the black lettering on the names a little this could maybe work.
I think he made a very wise career move here. I would fully expect one more kid to leave before next quarter and if I had to guess it would be one of the talented RBs or WRs. Just a guess because we have so much youthful talent and when younger guys start to pass you up its time to make a decision.
Very true Teddy we screwed the pooch last year. I also would choose Wimbush because not only is he a great talent but it would keep him away from a divisional rival. This little tear psu is on could continue on if they were to land a top QB to help with the rest of their class.
TG has more upside no doubt about it. Wimbush seems like he is going to be a step ahead in the passing deparment early on. If a gun was pointed at my head I would take Gibson but Ive felt going all out on him was a big gamble one that would be even bigger if Wimbush goes to psu. It seems as though the staff has been pretty high on both depending on who you ask. It think its very important that we grab one of these 2 kids and maybe even throw in a talented ath as a project or one of these high frequency passing Ohio kids that can really sling the rock.
