This isn't anything new or unusual. I remember Urban Meyer went to church with Noah Spence's parents. Recruiting is weird.

My go-to recommendation for people who want to get into craft beer is usually something from Bell's or Founder's, but since they are from Michigan I would recommend a good Ohio beer for tonight. I know for sure Great Lakes Brewing stuff is available in Virginia, and it's made right on W 25th Street in Cleveland, so look for some of their stuff. They usually have a variety 12 pack that has a few examples of their beers. Edmund Fitzgerald is probably the finest example of an American porter in existence.

Over the past 3 years, to some degree I feel that team has gotten comfortable with the fact that Braxton will be able to carry them through. Now that the illusion is gone everyone has a sense that they need to step up. I'm just as excited for the season without Braxton as I was with him. There are too many elite players on this team to always be calling on #5 to bail us out.

OL is probably the hardest position to pull guys from outside of the Midwest. Having two 5 stars in state is huge, probably the first time that has happened in recent history.

Practices are harder at ANY college. The NFL rules on contact and practices limit things pretty severely, and coach's aren't going to risk injuries as much when league minimum salary is around half a million.

Les Miles is the troll king. I can watch him do anything and be endlessly amused.

They just showed CJ warming up pregame. Ankle was taped, but he was walking around and catching balls without a gimp. If he's out, it doesn't look like he's going to be out for an extended period of time.

For sure that is the most encouraging thing I will hear all week. To go from him calling our O-line barely serviceable at the begging of last year to having strong backups going into this year is a testament to Ed Warriner.

Comment 07 Aug 2013

Warriner commented after practice the other day and mentioned Dodson as one of the guys solidly in the two deep. He named him right after Farris.

Players leaving early who don't graduate negatively effect APR. I think around 20, maybe more, players from RR recruiting classes have left for various reasons. Under Hoke they are trending back up and will be back on par with tOSU. Of course, we should make fun of them while it lasts.

Shazier mostly played with his hand in the dirt during high school, so there was more ambiguity as to how he would translate.
