I have to say that I wasn't all that keen on Gibson as I started to really look after what he was doing. However, as Birm mentions, he seems to have grown up a lot lately and he has handled the Braxton Miller injury with pure class. Hopefully we can snag him along with a few recruits he could possibly bring with him!
The argument could be made that Mariota would have been close to Jameis Winston in Heisman voting last year had he stayed healthy. Mariota is a much more accurate quarterback than Brax, but I do believe that Braxton is more elusive than Mariota. IF both stay healthy this year, both will be in the Top 3 of Heisman voting.
I am already going to the game so I will not throw my name in the hat, but this is a very cool thing to do and I hope to see whoever wins these over in Baltimore in 12 days!!
Don't forget about the kicking competition... Could become the most important battle
Absolutely love this article! Great points made throughout. I also think that as long as Braxton stays healthy, he will win the Heisman and lead us to the playoffs.
1) I think that Tom Herman is very overrated
2) I never liked Jim Tressel as a coach
3) I like Mark Dantoni
4) I hate the $EC just as much as I hate TSUN
5) I like Michigan professional sports teams, except the Pistons
6) I hate Philly Brown more than any Buckeye in history
7) I like the Florida Gators
8) We would have gotten killed by FSU last year had we beat MSU
9) It bothers me a lot when people refer to TOSU as Ohio
10) I don't like Kirk Herbstreit
i absolutely love this article! Agree with you 100%. I thought the same thing while reading it on ESecPN last night... Just ridiculous how the narrative is set already. Hopefully the college football playoff committee doesn't have a similar thing.
I am sorry but Devin Smith is simply an athlete that plays football. I would love to see him have a huge year, but I just don't see it happening. Here's my top 5:
5) Evan Spencer
4) Devin Smith
3) Michael Thomas
2) Jeff Huerman
1) Dontre Wilson
Yes, defenses will be keying in on Dontre yet again this year but the screen game will be ridiculous as someone mentioned earlier. Also, I feel that the tight ends will see lots of balls thrown their way this year. Receiver play, as Urban pointed out, SHOULD be one of our strongest units this year, and I see no reason as to why they won't be. I feel that we have more weapons now than we have had in a long time. Can't wait for the season to start!
I feel like 4-8 is very achieveable for Purdont
Great get for The Bucks. Needed some versatility and a shooter for sure. #notwhitebballpains
Samuel uses a skill set Meyer’s coveted since he had Cole Magner at Bowling Green – someone who can run behind the offensive line and catch balls in space, making defenders miss all the way down the field with game-changing speed and elusiveness.
Love the comparison as a BGSU Falcon fan. Magner was more of a receiver mold from the start but both seem to be extremely shifty and, as mentioned, catch balls in space. Magner had some of the best hands I've ever seen while catching passes from Josh Harris!
I hear that Publix has such a good sale on crab legs that they're basically a steal
At least the crab legs consented to it
How is Illinois spending so much on recruiting and still not getting anyone relevant to go there? lol
Unfortunately, I do agree with you 100%
Can't wait to be in Baltimore to watch the Buckeyes take on Navy in the season opener!!
It is tough to imagine Indiana being that low again next year, but i assume Tom Crean's face would look something similar to that in the picture if indeed that does happen.
I'm somewhat surprised that Corey Brown was named over Ryan Shazier, however all are well deserving! Go Bucks
As a former Ohio high school football player and year round athlete, I find this topic to be extremely interesting and I feel that it will be brought to the forefront in the years to come. Although i'm not 100% sure that we should have all out spring practices, i am sure that it would be beneficial to kids that have the ability to go division one.
One thing to remember when discussing Thomas is that he is cousins with Keyshawn Johnson Jr., so a good final two seasons at tOSU could go a long way in the recruitment of him.
I haven't been as excited as I was last night over the CBJ game since OSU vs. Clemson! Too bad we lost that game :(
Good thing you can spell and make proper sentences... Tyvis Powell is one of my favorite Buckeyes and is a very intelligent man and player. Look at his twitter if you get a chance, he's always got some interesting things to say that have meaning.
No judgments can be made until one hears both sides of the story. A grainy video taken in the middle of the "fight" can't be used to draw conclusions... I'm sure if it was terrible then EGW will be off the scholarship board, and if he it wasn't his fault then he will have to be clean until he arrives at OSU in order to keep his scholarship. We can't draw conclusions about the kids family, life, anything from just rumors and a video.
We just signed Lindsay apparently so there is 3 spots officially taken!
