Comment 21 Dec 2014
Read on a TCU board that he was highly offended by what one of the assistants told him about his chances of starting next year. I interpreted it like the coaches weren't going to guarantee him anything, even if it was just lip service for the other QBs already there, but Stidham didn't want to compete to start at all. Will be interesting to see how his freshman season works out. Baylor clearly has the better supporting cast, so he made the better choice in that sense, plus Petty will be graduating.

Funny thing is, that dude probably calls him Cordale cuz he's a fellow tarblooder (V'angelo Bentley)
Comment 18 Dec 2014

I remember we had a fried turkey and it was under cooked in many parts so I had very little to eat besides various appetizers.

Everyone at the party gave up on the game on the 4th down incomplete pass to Gamble and was not watching the TV almost immediately after the ball hit the ground. All of them had gotten up in disgust and were doing whatever to vent. I was the only one who caught the flag sail across the bottom corner of the TV screen and I immediately was screaming at these people "FLAG! FLAG! BE QUIET...SIT DOWN I SAW A FLAG!"  I vividly remember it took awhile to get anyone there to believe me because it took what seemed like an eternity (probably 15 seconds) for the TV to show the yellow flag graphic. I'm telling people "I swear I saw a flag come in late across the bottom right corner" (pre DVR days) but the TV was just showing 'Canes celebrating and Krenzel laying on the ground throwing out his mouthpiece.The next 15 seconds after, when the refs were talking, was agonizing. The entire room ran through the whole emotional spectrum in 30 seconds.

Pregnant women are THE craziest.  Went back to a friend's house with him after a planned bachelor party to find all his clothing and electronics thrown in the snow and a kitchen full of completely crumpled dining chairs and smashed dishes when his other half was a couple months pregnant with their first child.  He claims he'd never seen that side before and swears she was well aware of the bachelor party and had not protested earlier. She definitely wasn't finished when we got back either. I was supposed to crash there so it made for a very weird 45 min wait for a 4 AM cab ride out of there.

He looks like a guy that would be a perfect fit for the "star" position.  Let him go out and disrupt.  He doesn't look like just a straight pass rush either, he is the only guy that recognizes the screen on the one highlight and takes good angles to the ball.  Would have liked to see some pass coverage plays but it looks like his opponents couldn't get any off.  

Comment 09 Dec 2014

He's gotta have eligibility issues if he is getting no FBS looks outside of his home state Washington State  (even if it is on the other side of the state) and some Mountain West/Sun Belt conference bottom dwellers.

Even if he is undersized and playing against questionable talent, he's manhandling them as he should and his effort is off the charts. There are dozens of mid tier BCS schools like Purdue and Oregon St that would seemingly be all over him simply because of that motor.   

Comment 04 Dec 2014

I sorta don't get the sentiment that he is staying home if he goes to Va Tech.  Blacksburg has got to be a 4.5 - 5 hour drive from Chesapeake.  Granted, Columbus, OH is 8.5 hrs but once you're driving 5 hrs one-way, you're likely staying the night if you are going to watch a 3 hr football game.  What's an extra 3-4 hrs driving at that point? It's not like deciding between Virginia or USC.  Va Tech can't be anymore of his "home" school than Univ of Virginia or Univ of Maryland, UNC or NC State which are all an hour or more closer to Chesapeake than Va Tech is.    

Comment 04 Dec 2014

Probably not many worth pursuing for Ohio State but some other B1G schools should have interest in a couple.  

Sophomore RB Jordan Howard was 7th in rushing yards in the FBS with 1,587 yards at 5.2 ypc.  Big kid at 6'0" 225lbs

Redshirt Freshman WR Marqui Hawkins sat out the year for UAB after transferring from Florida.  He had offers out of high school from most of the SEC schools. Transferred to UAB because Florida moved him to safety and he wanted to be a WR. Had interest from Nebraska and Wisconsin when he was transferring from Florida.   

Freshman Center Lee Dufor may also see a big name program come calling.  Gus Malzhan tried to get him to walk-on at Auburn last year.  He should have only gotten better after a few starts with UAB this season.   

Most of the remaining players worthy of transfering to a decent program have little eligibility left.  Don't see many BCS conference teams chasing after a slight upgrade player for only one season of eligibility.  Expect the Eastern Michigan's of the FBS to fight for those guys with the FCS schools.   

Comment 19 Nov 2014

He has some surprising choices among his 4 official visits and his top 5 schools:   Marshall in his top 5, Washington State scheduled for his first official visit?  Tennessee, another of his scheduled official visits already has 3 DT's committed among their 26 commits, and 2 are top 25 ranked players (Shy Tuttle and Khalil McKenzie).  

Comment 11 Nov 2014

The two I always think of are Chris Chambers and Lee Evans (Bedford, OH - Wisconsin).  

Other recent notable OSU misses/not recruited are :

Javon Ringer (Dayton, OH - MSU), hris Hovan (St. Ignatius - BC), Barry Cofield (Clev Hts - Northwestern), James Harrison (Akron, OH Kent St.), Roger Saffold (Bedford - Indiana), Derek Wolfe (East Liverpool, OH - Univ Cincinnati), Eric Wood (Cin Elder - Louisville), Greg Jones (Cin Moeller - MSU), Haruki Nakamura (St. Ed's - Univ Cincy), Matt Light (Greenville, OH - Purdue), C Joe Jurevicius (Lake Catholic - PSU), Tony Fisher (Euclid - Notre Dame), Ki-Jana Carter (Westerville - PSU), Hugh Douglas (Mansfield - Central St.), London Fletcher (Cleveland VASJ- John Carroll Univ)

Comment 05 Nov 2014

In 2013 they hired a Hawaiian born D-line coach who played at Utah.  He's really helped them recruit out west and on the islands.  Last year they also got a lineman from Hawaii and a FB from Utah.  This year he's been the lead recruiter on basically every west coast recruit they've landed, including a QB and WR.  

Comment 21 Jul 2014

Missouri went to Indiana last season.  Undoubtedly that was scheduled with Indiana's weakness in mind.  It was made easier by the fact that Mizzou and Indiana had a mini rivalry from '85-'92 where they played each year back when Mizzou was in the Big 8.  UK and IU also played every year from 1987 - 2005.  

Mizzou has agreed to a home and home with Purdue for 2017-2018 now that the SEC is requiring one OOC opponent from a power 5 conference.  Probably felt IU was too risky so they came to an agreement with the Boilermakers who were coming off a 1-11 season. 

Comment 18 Jul 2014

I ain't the jealous type, I'll share.  

I did look at that ring finger, but I can't tell if it's a diamond or just a ring.  However, it would make complete sense, that a fine female specimen such as that, would be spoken for.  She probably can't go out in public without being bombarded by suitors.  

Comment 06 Jun 2014

The QB was Sonny Abramson, 6'2" 217 lbs.  Class of 2016.  Already has offers from Syracuse, Rutgers and South Florida.

Another teammate of Noah's, TE Ryan Izzo (6'6" 220 lbs), committed to Florida State's 2014 class.
