  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

Both Peppers and Charlton are slotted as late-first or early-second round guys, with Peppers probably getting more first-round nods. Opinions vary after that, but they have a ton of guys who could, potentially, be drafted (16 by my last count). Important to note, of course, that Harbaugh did not recruit any of them.

Most mock drafts I see have Marshon and Malik gone by pick 7, with a wide variety of opinions on other Buckeyes after that. Rivals writers Mike Farrell and Adam Gorney both have either McMillan or Conley in the first round. Not sure if this is more of a nod to their love of McMillan as a high schooler and college player or the fact they are not really NFL guys. The Conley pick is more popular across writers. I don't think Samuel goes in round 1 with McCaffery available.

If Gary does not start this year, there is a problem. That's a load of pressure to bear when you're the #1 recruit. Another guy (not in B1G) who I'm interested to see this year is Da'shawn Hand, who was also a #1 recruit. He'll be a senior this year and has never started (and has only shone sporadically). Seems just as good a spot to be a #2 or #3 guy and avoid all of that scrutiny.

Worked for a guy who once said, "It's OK to be wrong, you just can't stay wrong." While I am by no means suggesting the wrong that Ray Rice committed was OK, his decision to not be that guy anymore is a great example for the young adults on the team. In response to the comment that it should be enough to suggest that guys just don't hit women, I wish you were right. Unfortunately, you have to show them a more pragmatic approach until it becomes ingrained (hopefully) with maturity. If I were a parent of a player, I would applaud this choice of speaker.
