I think staff members here know exactly what is going on but are choosing not to talk about it  out of respect for Webb, his family and the university. I respect how 11w handle their business, they realize that being first to report info isn't always the most important thing. Reporting unfounded and incomplete info has never been 11w style. If that's what you're looking for check out Bucknuts. I fully expect a complete detailed article once everything is settled but until then trust in the 11w staff.

I think Beck was hired for his recruiting connections in Texas. Herman was our Texas guy and when he left I think Urban wanted to keep that pipeline going. I think it's pretty obvious that Beck was a downgrade but who else was out there at the time?

I think it helps. Imagine Braxton in the slot, JT motions him in the backfield to line up next to Zeke. Who are they going to defend? They have to respect the hand off to Braxton which means they can't key in on Zeke. I think it will open up the field for Zeke and give him a chance to break a few extra 85 yarders. The possibilities are endless with the amount of dynamic play makers that will be on the field at the same time. It is mind blowing to think that this years offense is going to probably put up better numbers than last year.

From day one I felt like the program was based on having the attitude that everything was a competition, you worked your ass off to earn time and  you hit the books as hard as you hit the weights. If that is indeed the case I guess it's easy to figure out why they parted ways

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.

"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 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.
Comment 09 Apr 2015
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.

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'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.
