Recruiting is always interesting because we like following who's gonna play for the Buckeyes, but the whole sideshow is kind of sickening. Recruits tweeting how many offers they have, retweeting people pathetic enough to tweet at them, pretending like they need a press conference to announce, it's all a little much. 

As far as Michigan at high noon, a night game atmosphere would be insane, but there's just a certain history with a noon kick-off. I'm adamantly anti-noon kick-off...except for the Michigan game.

Loved this article by the way, has opinions that I share and made similar opinions a lot more enjoyable to read. That's why you work for 11W and I hope someone reads whatever I post. Great write-up Michael.  

Comment 17 Jul 2014

If this was started this year, I would absolutely not put Toledo in ahead of Xavier. There is no way that Toledo last year, or this upcoming year, was or will be better than Xavier. Xavier and Ohio State, for the past ten years, are the premier teams in Ohio and I don't think that's changing anytime soon. 

Comment 16 Jul 2014

The "classy" argument makes me cringe, but I love watching Mike Trout. Trout and Puig make the LA teams must-watch baseball. I hardly miss Reds games, don't watch anybody else consistently...except the Dodgers and Angels when they're on the national broadcast.

He played in the Futures game yesterday, didn't get a chance to watch. Hamilton, Winker, and Stephenson are the future of the franchise, which gives me some comfort knowing that the pitching stable will be full for a while. 

Comment 14 Jul 2014

Votto is one of the best hitters in baseball and the cornerstone of the franchise. Consistently worth 6 wins a year, I want Votto to be a Red until he retires. 

Comment 14 Jul 2014

Redlegs are in a great spot at every position...except LF. I have no problem with Cozart, he adds so much value with his glove that I can come to terms with a less-than-stellar bat. Ryan Ludwick in left is a much bigger issue.

Regionally speaking, Herman is closer. That was my point. I hope you're right though, if Smith can go to Southern Florida and pluck Dixon, I have faith he can go to Arizona and get Kirk. 

Comment 10 Jul 2014

Question for Birm, which coach is in charge of Kirk's recruitment? Would it be Herman because he's in Texas and is closest? Or is Smith on it because he's the WR coach, regardless of Kirk being outside his region? With Smith being the B1G recruiter of the year last year, I hope Smith is in charge.

It is slightly frustrating that we don't have a QB out in Oregon to help with the recruiting. Hilliard may be the leader of the class, but I'm sure Kirk is thinking about who is going to be getting him the ball when he's in school. I like Burrow and think he's a good QB, just wish he was in Oregon to help Hilliard and Cornell with Kirk.
