This would be the best Ohio prospect to not pick OSU since Woodson, who never considered OSU. Still think Meyer closes the deal though. Just can't see a top rated Ohio prospect turning down an OSU offer.
Part of the costs will be borne by tourists as the hotel tax is going up to pay for it. Just got a little bit more expensive to visit Vegas.
Not worried at all about him flipping. Saban is going back to more pro-style this year with his new OC, so their offense would not be a good fit for him.
It is sad when other schools in the state routinely outclass in bball Ohio State, the school that has been to the most final fours in the history of the B1G.
I always think about that quote from "Full Metal Jacket" when I think about TX.
Don't understand Browns logic. They pay $16 mill for a 2nd round pick but balk at paying $10 mill for a WR who is a first round talent that they developed? Pryor will have a monster year with Cousins throwing him the ball and get that huge contract next year. People are acting like Pryor will never get better. He was basically a rookie this past year.
Recruiting is not an exact science, but the coaches go with the probabilities. For example, Tressel did not offer Luke Kuechly (OH) but signed Dorian Bell (PA) who was a 5* and the #1 or #2 OLB. No one was complaining back then.
The ratings services will jigger the rankings at the end to make sure precious Alabama comes out on top, again. A few OSU 5 stars will suddenly drop to 4 star like this year.
This is crazy people are questioning resigning Pryor. He is a proven commodity. If a WR with his size and speed came out of college he would be a first round pick. Again, Pryor has proven he can beat top db's in the league. He just needs a good qb to throw him the ball.
Brady is the greatest qb ever. Other than a few seasons with Moss, never had that stud wr. Montana had Rice. 5 rings in this era of parity is amazing.
PSU blowing up with scandal greatly helped too in landing guys like Spence back in Meyer's first year
Yeah, it'd be no big deal if down the line he ever came back to OSU to be a qb coach. Now, it looks plain awful.
Wish we could have had more 5*'s than Alabama just for once. Sucked that Myers and Grimes were downgraded. Still have the highest per player average ever though.
Honestly thought Dobbins was the best fit for this offense, more so than Harris or Akers.
What's with the FAX machine? Why can't they sign a pdf and email it? Digital signatures are pretty standard and built into a lot of pdf programs. Or, you can sign the paper and scan it via your phone (lots of apps out there that do this) and email it.
If you go on the Auburn forums theres some good stuff on there. General consensus seems to be that "we do it too, but not for literally every player on the team and we don't treat football like life and death"
Cavs will be fine. Just having to iron out the kinks with working Korver into the system. I think Griff will trade for another big.
9-3 with a loss to Michigan, i.e., the 1980's
Dang, we are at 5 5* with Myers and Grimes dropping. That Martell and Grimes are not 5*s is a joke. Anything to protect precious Alabama. I really wanted to beat them in the # of 5*'s. What at one time looked to be a record setting haul in 5*'s with the possible addition of Darnay Holmes to bump up to 8 5*'s to this feels like finishing with a whimper.
Must sign Pryor. Don't let an elite wr walk away. Get him a real qb and watch him put up monster numbers. 6'5" guys with 4.4 speed don't come around every day. He's already far better than the Baylor Bust. Plus, more fan interest in seeing an OSU player on the Browns.
About that time of the year to trim the fat. The numbers always work out. I am interested to see going forward how the early signing period that will be in effect for the next cycle is going to alter things. It is not a good thing for programs like OSU and Alabama, but it will be good for lesser programs like Nebraska to pressure and lock in kids.
Rats jumping off the ship. In this case, the captain is NOT going down with it....heading off to greener pastures, i.e., Indianapolis, within a year or two. 0-4 will be the push.
He valued his individual stats over winning. Not necessarily right or wrong, but obviously the pull of playing in the playoffs and with his high school pals wasn't strong enough.
This was why the AP ranked Ohio State #1 program of all time (all time being since the AP poll started). Ohio State has always been a consistent winner with no extended down periods. No other program can say that. Even Oklahoma was really bad in the 90's.
