I have always been a Buckeye fan but truly became a diehard after attending football camp under Earl Bruce back in the early 80's. My first car was a gray 1980 Cutlass with scarlet interior called the Woodymobile (bench front seat, an entire generation of kids have no idea how great a bench front seat is!). I grew up in Cincinnati (which should actually be part of Kentucky) where there are plenty of Buckeye faithful that are typically overshadowed by hillbillies, catholic school devotees, and cute little bearcat fans with massive inferiority complexes. I now live outside of Hamilton county where you see the Buckeyes flags fly 365 days a year. My favorite Buckeyes moments: a 3-way tie between throwing with Art as a sophmore in high school, watching Cie Grant toss Dorsey to the ground like a rag doll, and yelling like a madman as Ted Ginn returned the opening kickoff as I watched from 20 rows up in the 2006 NC game. Worst Buckeye moments: about 30 minutes after the Ted Ginn moment and watching JT fall on the sword for Gee and Smith.

They gave those two to Burger and Fada who are 2 of the 6 seniors.....or we are at 83 if leave out Gibson and Thompson who may or may not be coming back. It'll be interesting to see who leaves, who is pushed out, and who stays. I laugh at folks who want Barrett to leave to insert Burrow and make room for a freshman. Personally, I would love to see what this team could do next year if the 21 underclassmen starters all returned and maybe this incoming class has to shrink a little. I'll take a returning starter on the #2 team in the country over a freshman any day.

With the 15 current commits and the 6 seniors guaranteed to leave we are sitting on around 95 scholarship players (this includes Gibson and Thompson returning which might not be the case). We would need to have 10 leave via some route (NFL, transfer, medical, no fifth year granted....) as it stands today. To get to 25 you would need a total of 20 to leave. An 18 player class might be a tough number to get to!
