2 things:

1. The transformation of Troy Smith from last recruit in the class who took money from boosters, to the Heisman Trophy winning legend he ended his career as, is the single greatest testiment to the type of man and coach Jim Tressel was. Don't get me wrong, I love UFM as much as anyone, but Coach Tressel (as well as Troy Smith) will always have a special place in my heart.

2. The term "make them be loyal to their soil" is one of the best things I've read in a long time. Again, God I love Troy Smith.

With 4 great recruits already committed, and a couple more possibly coming soon (McCall, Haskins and the like) maybe we won't run into it too much this year.

Go Blue Aces and all man, but he beat our defense like they stole something. 

Comment 10 Nov 2014

Wait is his middle name actually Tiberius or is that a reference to James Tiberius Kirk, captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise and lover of many women of all species?

Or both?

Comment 07 Nov 2014

Dissapointing, though not surprising. We had to lose one of these recruiting battles in Georgia to UGA at some point right? 

I don't know if I'd call staying home to play for Georgia "heart over head" necessarily. UGA is a solid program. It isn't like he spurned us for Kentucky or some bullshit like that.

"from what I know of Burrow, he's welcoming the challenge."

Hell yea that's what I like to here. You wanna be our QB? Come and take it! Burrow plays my old high school in the playoffs this weekend, and I couldn't be more excited to watch someone pick my Blue Aces apart. I hope he uses this underratedness as a motivator and goes out there and ends worlds.

Like I said, a big time recruit. I know they don't always turn into stars, but if I was a big time recruit, I'd probably be confident I was going to become one hell of a player. Otherwise, what's the point? Confidence is key. 

Comment 03 Nov 2014

The man can develop professional oline like nobody's business. I mean hell, three of the starters he graduated last year are starting as rookies on teams in playoff contention. 

Whether he brings in 10 star talent or 1 I have no doubt Ed Warinner can turn them into great linemen. 

Comment 31 Oct 2014

Totally agree with you, though according to Birm that isn't the case here. 

Comment 30 Oct 2014

When? Out of high school maybe, but a Heisman trophy makes you elite, and things like heisman trophy winning QBs help to bring in recruits. You know what helps even more though? Putting players at a position successfully and consistently into the NFL, a la Qbs at FSU or Left Tackles at A&M recently. I mean that's a huge boost for both of them in getting elite talent at those positions. 

Comment 29 Oct 2014

That I can agree with, I think part of the problem is you look at recent QBs at tOSU and we don't have a history of putting our very college successful QBs into the NFL to have real success (Krenzel, Smith, Pryor). I think you will see that change if Barrett continues to have success or Braxton really turns the corner when he comes back healthy. 

Comment 29 Oct 2014

Have you met Danny Clark? I mean I know it's a couple years away but the kid is an elite recruit. 

Comment 29 Oct 2014

I mean if I was a big time recruit, the thought that I could majorly screw up and my coach, school and the goddamn police department would all come to my defense certainly wouldn't be a negative in my mind. 

Comment 25 Oct 2014

This is the most predictable fuckin game plan on the planet. 

Comment 18 Oct 2014

That's actually a pretty fair take on the show, I really don't disagree. Though in the end, whether directly based on Chinaski or plagiarized from Bukowski, we at least both agree they are similar characters. 

If californication was a direct copy of Chinaski, the first 6 seasons would outrageously depressing, with Chinsaki finally "triumphing" in the final season. The final season would also be depressing, but it would be because Hank got everything he really wanted but couldn't stop being a drunk, cynical, son of a bitch. 

That said (spoilers), the episode where Hanks father dies and Hank reads the letter where Father Moody says that he's proud of him and the only reason he never talked to his son about his books was he didn't think he was smart enough to talk about them without sounding like an idiot is one of the few episodes of television that made me get a little misty eyed.

Strange, they certainly didn't say much after the Buckeyes played another round of our favorite game, "Who Gonna Be My Bitch Today?" Bunch of jersey shore trash.
