-- Urban Meyer is usually blunt and forthright about everything, so with a simple question of "how is OSU going to get to the limit of 85?" one would expect an honest answer from him, and not a bunch of hand waving.  The OP is wondering if such a question has been asked, that's all.  No one "expects" or "deserves" any info, just not happy with OSU being in an oversigned position and hoping for some kind of explanation and/or clarity. 

Thank you HeismanDog! This is exactly my point. I'm just simply wondering as to why this isn't talked about more. If it was discussed, we could all possibly get some clarity on this issue.

Asking how they are even qualified is like asking how they're even qualified to comment on the QB battle... C'mon now

Birm, I posted a forum topic an hour or so ago that questioned as to why you, or any staff members have not published any material about roster management. Obviously, I have come under fire from many people, which I knew would happen. All i simply ask is what are your thoughts on this and what could possibly be the repercussions from this? I am in no way, shape, or form criticizing you or the site! I love it and have been reading every article for the past 3 years. Thank you

I just simply said that it's never even been talked about or discussed on here by the staff. Calm down man.

Comment 31 Mar 2015

I agree and I completely love this site! It is funny, interesting, and has new material regularly. I spend at least an hour per day on here. As i mentioned, all I would like is a yes or no if, under his/her opinion, if this will be a problem. If this is a problem, then who could be on the way out? This would be more informational than the standard comment of how so and so isn't going to even begin to start talking about it because it may be too controversial. Just a basic discussion on the topic.

This is my point! You cannot say anything about it or you're basically a terrible Buckeye fan. I simply would like it explained.

"Avoiding all the potential hot takes on "roster management" is a must, so let's swerve head on into the current commitments."

Just one example here

Comment 30 Mar 2015

I might get down votes for this but I actually like this new rule. The transfer market has become something of a free agency, which is not how things should be happening in my opinion. Once you commit to school, you should stay there, and if you are transferring then yes, you should have to sit out a year. Otherwise, student-athletes would be transferring from different teams year to year.

Comment 24 Mar 2015

I agree with all of the previously mentioned pros/cons. One possible con though that I have heard about and agree with, is that when you are on the field you get emotionally connected with the game more, which could lead to making or changing a certain call/play due to your emotions. Regardless, I would trust Urban with my life and agree with him yet again on this decision.

Comment 02 Mar 2015

I really hate to be "that guy" but i don't see how oversigning isn't still an issue. I am really happy to hear that Armani and Bogard are working with the team now and allowed to keep their scholarships, but with the 3 losses that still puts OSU at 88 players on scholarship... Take a look at the recruiting grid, still 88. If i'm thinking correctly, don't we need to be down to 85 by the time fall camp starts?

People still fail to recognize just how talented Miller is. Everyone points to how the offense was more efficient this year with him out, but Braxton didn't have anywhere near the talent that JT and Cardale had at their disposal. It's almost not even a fair conversation to have yet. If Braxton is the same guy and can still throw the ball well, he should start next year. However, I do not think that he will be fully healthy until mid season, which will make things even more interesting. Regardless of who starts, this offense will be very special next year, yet again.

This award is Harbaugh's, no doubt! All he has to do is go 7-5 and he will win it... Urban has bigger and better things to be awarded anyways ;P
