Somebody should. Especially Liberal arts.
Is it me or did this kind of come out of nowhere? I got the impression from many OSU writers that Jordan was a long shot. It just goes to show how amazing this staff is. What a great addition to an already super talented class. Welcome to the family Big Fella.
I'd say they were relevant in 2006. After that not so much.
Not good enough Birm, you hide somewhere in that kids house if you have to in order to get us info on Ferns. Step up your game man, don't half ass it buddy.
"There was only one team with their hands on their knees in the fourth quarter, and it was the same team that lost."
So true. Well put DJ
Urban had been pretty good about replacing kids they miss on with someone of equal or better talent. Not worried at all. Good luck to the kid at ND. Go Bucks!!!
I didn't see any tweets bragging about the CB's accuracy on this one. I wonder why?
I think his numbers may drop off a little but only because I thinks he sits after halftime in a lit of blow outs this year.
Rivals is the worst offender when it comes to giving better ratings to kids that attend their camps.
Bucknuts? Is that the site that prematurely declares people dead from time to time?
I'd consider them both dick moves
I really hope the grey shirt was agreed upon before signing day. It would be a Scumbag move to hit a kid with that after he has signed his LOI.
The kid is built like a brick shit house, he runs like the wind, has very good grades and by all accounts he is exactly the personality type that Urban wants in the locker room. Think about it for a second, out of all of the players that he could attempt to get rid of why would he pick Dean? Isn't it more likely that there is more permanent damage to his knee than was previously thought? Dean had all of the measurables and skills that a coach dreams of in a corner or safety. I just don't buy the reasoning that he was let go because of numbers.
I heard that George Hill expecting to play RB instead of H back may have an influence on if Walker sticks. According to men of the scarlet and gray Walker may explore other options for that reason.
An incoming freshman not getting medically cleared is not what i would consider attrition. And you should care about how outsiders view us. Especially high school coaches and potential recruits. Don't think for a second that other programs won't twist this and use it for negative recruiting. Remember that one of Dean's teammates is currently committed to OSU. That just gave other programs ammunition to attempt to flip him.
I know it's just practice and I know it's a highlight reel but Cardale looks awesome. I do not envy Urban, picking a QB this fall is going to be extremely difficult.
I'm not a conspiracy theory guy but I don't like the way this can appear to people outside of the program and fan base. With the numbers crunch going on it certainly can be interpreted as something more than it is. I know how we perceive things when Alabama is tight on numbers and guys suddenly are given medical hardships. Now I'm not saying anything shady went down because nobody really knows why he wasn't cleared. If it is indeed because of his knee and other teams clear him I do think it will and should raise questions. However if it's a heart issue I commend the staff for catching it and still honoring his scholarship. I guess time will tell. Either way I hope he has success in life.
Not surprised he put on 20pds. Usually when a kid commits he is given a workout/diet regiment. To me this just shows that Ward has the motivation and competitiveness that Urban looks for. I'm pretty excited that he is Buckeye.
I thought the biggest problem at PSU is that what happened was left unspoken. It should be talked about. That's what will make sure it won't happen again. Joking about is however in poor taste.
I noticed you changed your Josh King CB to cloudy. What was your prediction for him prior and what changed your mind?
Spoken like someone suffering from Stockholm Syndrome
Would the staff accept a commitment from Wallace if he wanted in this weekend?
They appear to weigh the same so that may also add to the confusion.
I've been following recruiting pretty hard since 2001. I'm actually kind of embarrassed I missed that one. Thanks for the kind words. I'll make sure to triple check next time so I don't make myself look like some newbie douche nugget. Thanks for not beating me up too bad.
