I had the same feeling watching them against scUM in '96 thoroughly dominating them but barely up at halftime. Of course, the Springs Slip happened and Cooper folded under pressure, again.
Off the top off my head I believe those guys in '08 were all 5* on Rivals.
I use 247 these days. Young is a 5* on 247 itself and on Scout, but composite 4*.
They can't handle the truth when Young basically called out Bama's subpar academics.
Strictly looking at only 5*'s, so far this class has tied the Brew Crew one of 2008 with 4 5*'s so far. I believe that 2008 class was the most 5 *s (Pryor, Brewster, Posey, Adams) in OSU history.
I wasn't around then but reading about the great teams of the 70's it seems OSU left way too many titles on the table due to conservative play calling. Stanford and UCLA beat those OSU teams because they actually passed the ball. In an era of unlimited scholarships and with the resultant talent disparity it's a shame OSU didn't come away with more titles.
Its all bs in the end. I think there are a lot of shenanigans involved in the recruiting services hyping the ucomitted recruits so people flock to their sites towards signing day. The recent downgrades of a lot of OSU recruits after the Opening where they did well made no sense other than what I mentioned. Also there seems to be the Alabama hype machine at work where services rank high a lot of Alabama's probable commits so when they do commit to Alabama at the end the services can hype it up.
They can call it whatever they want, its still piss yellow to me.
Sad to think parents trust Saban in loco parentis.
Regardless of what he says, It is quite unbelievable that somehow Ohio State got dragged into Penn State's mess. Also, I'm sure now LJ is going to be under more scrutiny, whether deserved or not.
So this makes it seem like McQueery perjured himself. You can't fire Schiano over hearsay. There will always be doubt over who is telling the truth, which is unfortunate.
It's all hearsay in the end. McQueery's word vs. Bradley's and Schiano's. Also, I have to believe Meyer wouldn't be so careless on not vetting Schiano completely about the whole Sandusky mess. Paterno defintely comes out looking worse though. So back in '76 he tells a victim "I don't want to hear about that stuff, I have a football team to worry about". Sick person indeed.
Has Tom Bradley ever spoken about what he knew about Sandusky?
I am SO excited about seeing these two dinosaurs with a combined 1/2 a national championship between them in the last 25 years face off again!
I think OSU will end up with 9 5*'s in the end
2004 USC if I recall correctly is the one with Fred Davis. I was just amazed back then how it seemed like they signed every one they wanted. Feels good to be in that position now.
Anyone know the record for most 5*'s in one class? Pre 247, USC had some sick classes around 2003-2007.
The odds of Jimmy not pissing off influential people in power there are slim to none. He's recruiting good talent, around the level Tressel did but Urban is recruiting at another level.
Recruits are noticing that Meyer gets players into the NFL without over using them. Saban's players seem worn out when they reach the league.
OSU should end up with around 10 5*'s in this class, which would the most ever since 247 started.
Wyatt must say one time in his OSU career, while in the huddle, "kill em' all and let the paramedics clean them up!"
This class is amazing. Will certainly break the record for most amount of 5 *'s in one class.
It's been the Lebron and Kyrie show, with Love's disappearance act. Lebron would be an immortal for becoming the first player to lead his team down 3-1, and against the team with the most wins in regular season history. Also, I don't think this series bodes well for Love's future in Cle. I look for the Cavs to move him this off season.
Can't argue with Smth's results, but its beneath OSU to engage in "beef" with any other program in the B1G. The big dog of the pack shouldn't be doing this. Like AD Gene Smith said, these sort of antics are done by Harbaugh to get attention since he can't sell real results.
Here's an OSU shout out that was only on the TV version:
Can't imagine that doesn't cause some sort of resentment in Vol players. They have to think that their work product, their risking life and limb, and not getting paid for it, is what enables their coach to drive that expensive car.
Other than who is already committed, I think as it stands now tOSU will land Okudah, Browning, Akers, Grimes, Martell, Lindsey, C.Young. They should land around 9 5*'s in the end. Because of the small numbers, it won't be 247 all time highest ranked class. I believe that is Florida 2010 at 323 points. This tOSU class should come in at around 315 points, with the most ever 5 *'s in one class.
If I felt I had NFL ability, I'd go to OSU. If I know that I probably wouldn't make it to the NFL, I'd go to Stanford. Major in finance or CS at Stanford, and you were a football player there, you'd be set.
