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.

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.

So was looking at Tyjon's twitter and this was funny I thought, certainly unintentionally awkward: He says he's "on a million dollar mission" and tweets his new Ole Miss offer. Hmm, is 180k no longer the price or has inflation really been that bad the last 5 years or so lol?

The system how it was in the past was pure idiocy. You could be the best team in the country (OSU '98), but a fluke late season loss eliminated you. When you lost mattered. Also, we had reporters, some of whom never watched most games, voting on the champion. In 2014 the title game would have been Alabama vs. Oregon. OSU would have been shut out. If anything, the playoffs need to be expanded.

To his credit, JT and his receiving corps performance in the Fiesta made his job negative recruiting easy. "Why go to OSU and be coached by a guy who never played the position while I on the other hand did and coached wr's in the NFL before....btw JT is coming back".

I know there isn't much of a difference. I'm just keeping an unofficial tally to see how many 5 *'s we get. I think 247 used to be more generous with 5*'s counting the top 50-55. In recent years they've cut it off at the top 32. Florida had more 5*'s in 2010, but using current criteria OSU would have more.

Saban would never hire a guy like Zack Smith just because he is his mentor's kid. The OSU wide receivers have been pretty subpar throughout Urban's career and even a guy like Devin Smith once he reached the NFL was roasted by his position coach Chan Gailey saying he didn't know how to run routes. Michael Thomas is good because he was coached by his uncle Keyshawn in addition to whatever he learned at OSU.

Didn't one of the Alabama players a few years back inadvertently say on Twitter something to the effect of "the money is too good", and then claimed his Twitter was hacked?

Comment 09 Jan 2017

Yeah, I don't think people fully understand what a huge recruiting advantage is in having the greatest basketball player in the world, whom all the kids pretty much idolize, be such a vocall fan. Far better than having a former player that none of the current players have seen play, but is rather memorable for being a meme, represent the school.
