Not a fan of this.
I feel pretty comfortable letting Urban Meyer decide who he wants to attend the Big Ten Media Day.
So now kids are being ranked 5s after their freshmen year. Scary path we are headed in.— Mark Pantoni (@markpantoni) July 29, 2015
Believe me, we know the rumors - just no point in discussing them until we know they're accurate. Until then, it's just unnecessarily running kids' names and reputations through the mud.
And, this is attitude is exactly why I prefer 11W over the sites that cover Ohio State athletics.
Ticketmaster has tickets available at face value.
He lost me when he said there would be 10,000 fans for the Team Up North in Utah for the game.
While there is a lot more coverage of recruiting now that before, the decision on whether to follow it, and set expectations is completely up to the reader/consumer of the information.
And, while it is different now, I can recall reading about recruits in the Dispatch and the paper Buckeye Sports Bulletins that were given out for free at Big Bear.
When I was in school at Ohio State there was coverage and still big expectations for some big-name recruits. I recall, for example, big expectations for Carlos Snow, Joe Pickens, and Robert Smith, for example.
The coverage has not lessened the excitement or "pageantry" for me, but rather enhanced it, as I decide to what level of detail I want to follow recruiting, and keep in mind that the ratings, etc. are just projections, as there is so much that happens between a commit's decision to attend Ohio State, and when they complete their time at the University.
Ridiculous. Just ridiculous what this staff is doing with recruiting
The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup qualifier in October does not have any impact on World Cup qualifying.
In the last 5 matches vs. Mexico, the United States has won 3 and had 2 draws.
It should be a good, competitive, match.

There are reports of pretty big differences in the Cost of Attendance stipends among schools. Ohio State's number is low compared to other schools in the Big Ten and nationally.
In talking with recruits is the Cost of Attendance stipend something that they are talking about and considering as a big factor in their decision?
This is what I was going to suggest.
I have a Golf TDI for my commuter car and love it.
With a a growing family, the Passat TDI is a better fit for the OP.
See Birm's great overview of FNL '15.
I don't believe Ohio State is allowed to promote the event in that way. They pretty much have to rely on the media coverage of the event to generate interest.
Thank you for the fantastic coverage of FNL.
Great write-up. I appreciate it.
And I agree with your post about creepy fans, as well.
Always consider the source.
Kids Potential and future Buckeyes practicing football under the lights.
Nice overview. Thank you. I look forward to the usual fantastic coverage from 11W!
