Didn't think of Carol Burnett till you mentioned it, but it was hilarious.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

I always admired players who handled being in the spotlight with grace.  Chris Spielman and Aaron Craft are two of my favorites, but Archie will always be my hero.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

Post college issues aside, for those of us old enough to remember, he was probably the best QB to ever play at OSU.  His numbers aren't that astounding, but considering he played in fewer games per season and in the "3 yards and a cloud of dust" era, they are exemplary.  Don't let the train wreck his life has become make you overlook how great he was as a Buckeye.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

I'm surprised how undervalued Kelvin Ransey is on these kinds of lists.  He is 5th in career scoring AND 3rd in career assists.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

Starters: Conley, Jackson, Kellogg, Lucas, Oden

Bench: Ransey, Craft, Sullinger, Russell, H. Williams, Havlicek, Hopson

Comment 09 Feb 2015

I think it would be great for kids who don't like all the attention and want to put an end to still being recruited even though they've verbally committed to a school.  It would be a surefire way to identify who is into playing games and who isn't.

Comment 27 Jan 2015

I hate that we criticize these kids for changing their minds.  I know that some kids like playing the game, but my guess is that most of them don't.

I'm not saying that something shady couldn't have happened, but I think we all underestimate the pressure put on these kids by recruiters and coaching staffs to sign "now", especially on a visit.  Some kids like it, some kids tolerate it, some kids hate it.  Then on top of it, recruiting has gotten to the point where everything they say is under a microscope from the perspective fan bases.

I can certainly see situations where kids are persuaded to sign on a visit before they're ready and then changing their minds later.  I wish they would either make it so that once they sign, it is permanent or that no one can sign until National Signing Day.

Spot on observations.  

Smith is a great deep threat, but might not be consistent enough on shorter routes to play in the league consistently.  I think his performance on special teams this last year will help him.

I'm stunned that more people aren't high on Grant.  He quietly did an outstanding job this last year.

Comment 16 Jan 2015

I'm not sure I agree, but there's a problem with just moving Braxton.   Do you put him at RB and take snaps from Elliott?  Do you put him at Hybrid and take snaps from Wilson/Marshall?  Do we try him at HBack/TE?

I'm not sure it is as easy as just saying it.

Comment 12 Jan 2015

Pollack keeps flip-flopping because he's still stunned there isn't and SEC team in there.

Comment 08 Jan 2015

I'd say Grant out, Lee and Perry at LBs and Reeves or Burrows in at Star.

Comment 02 Jan 2015

So much this...............

I was yelling about this when it happened.  I couldn't believe my eyes.

Also agree with the OP about Alabama running the ball.  We couldn't stop it and it was like they refused to keep running left.

Really thought Saban/Kiffin/Smart had major brainfarts last night.

Comment 24 Nov 2014

He had 7 TDs this week against DeSales.  So much for racking up numbers against inferior competition.

Comment 13 Nov 2014

I'd like some kind of clause where if a league champ had 4 or more losses, they are DQ'd and add another at large bid.
