I'd rather just keep Weber. The report is he has had issues with marijuana charges. We don't need that right now.
I'm happy to hear about Burrow and Wade. It would be awesome to land KJ Hill if possible. If Gibson decides to go somewhere else it's his loss. He'll struggle at Auburn because they didn't develope Cam Newton, he came in as good as he finished. They consider Nick Marshall a development? He looked good last year but this year he was a contributor to their losses and when everyone keyed on him he fell apart. That's what will happen with Gibson. If he goes to LSU he will be battling Brandon Harris the next 3 years and they haven't developed a solid qb in over a decade unless you count Jamarcus Russell or Matt Flynn. Both were flops in the NFL. We've got 3 potential NFL qbs on one roster. So either he can be the next Heisman candidate at qb or Burrow will be.
They can keep dreaming. Gibson isn't going to that shithole. After the other night with the Meyer/Beck meeting I'm pretty confident that it won't be Burrow either. If it is Burrow then I wish him the best on his matching Mike Hart's legacy at ttun 0-4.
I'm not worried about losing Gibson. He's made relationships with the coaches and other commits that seem really strong. Burrow is a different story. I believe he will be a Buckeye but if I had to chose one of them to flip, I would say him. It would just be an amazing finish to this campaign to land Terry Beckner to finish this class. It would be the cherry on top.
I'm pretty sure I saw Cam Williams and Damon Webb too.
Congrats to your nephew.
I had a few in mind until I thought about our depth at the positions. Smith and Spencer are going to be tough. I see Johnnie Dixon taking Smith's spot. He's got decent size at 6'1", good speed (4.42-4.45) and good hands. As for Spencer, I see maybe Michael Thomas moving there or some of the young guys rotating until they find the right guy to fit. Doran Grant is a tough hole to fill but watching Eli Apple this year has given me a lot of hope for next year just like last year did with Doran. Pending any unforeseen early draft entries, My pick is Michael Bennett. Unless someone really progresses or we get Terry Beckner Jr and he's as good as advertised that's a big hole to fill (pun intended).
We've been in Wilkins' top 5 for a long time and Beckner kept us in his top 5 even though it sounded like the coaches cooled off of him at one point. So I would say we have a good shot at one if not both of them. Especially after a national championship.
I think he is but haven't heard anything about him. He would be an awesome pickup for his size and building that pipeline at St Thomas Aquinas.
I'm with you on this. Weber is a beast and runs like Marshawn Lynch. But Burrell already told _ichigan they can't have him.
I think we have a legitimate shot at Beckner and Wilkins and a decent shot at Gustin. Not to mention potential flip rumors of some previous targets. They'll make room for a few of these guys.
Now he has one but doesn't matter he picked Oklahoma
Names are on the back of the helmets
They just showed Gallimore holding 3 hats to make his decision and none were Buckeyes hats.
That woman Phyllis that calls the Paul Finebaum show regularly because she's "so proud of dem boys"
Right before he broke that 85 yarder I looked at my friend and said Zeke is gonna break another big one. It just seems like every big game we have he delivers a back breaking td run late in the game to put the game out of reach. Can you say Doak Walker next year?
Already ordered the whole family a shirt. I can't wait for them to get here. We'll be wearing them next Monday night.

Sweet. Thank you for the update.
If all we have to really bitch about after a game against Alabama is a few procedure penalties we're in good shape. At least we didn't have enough to be mad about to go key players cars and slash their tires like FSU fans did. I wanted to start a forum on just this topic but found out they raised the helmet sticker level to 750 so I can't. Please someone who has enough make one. 24/7 is reporting it. I think it's absolutely hilarious. Not only are FSU players entitled little bitches so are their fans.
This was exactly what I was thinking and just about to comment.
Me too in Columbiana county.
You're a real class act Birm. You always keep us informed on all things recruiting. Your opening paragraph in light of the tragedy that has struck Columbus was touching. We 11w readers always see you as a recruiting guru and "lord of whispers" but that paragraph showed your true character. You're a good man. God bless the Karageorge family at this time.
What I was asking wasn't was it his fault for the play he called that resulted in the injury but was it inevitable with his overall playcalling that JT would get hurt? Sorry if I didn't word it right in the post.
