Yea, I'm like 900% sure when we won the trophy we displayed it at a Wal Mart, definitely at some Krogers.  Either way, you definitely sound more than a little butthurt.

Darrell Hazell, WR coach.  Zach Smith moves to Special Teams Coach and Recruiting Coordinator. I would also say Aaron Moorehead, WR Coach out of Texas A&M, but after all of that shit with subtweeting Tate Martell, I'm not interested in bringing another guy like that into the fold.

Comment 12 Jan 2017

I mean 3 guys on that staff were either Position coaches or OC's for Zeke while he was at Ohio State.  It's not like we can't claim him now or something.

Comment 11 Jan 2017

Gotta say, maybe I'm too young to get it, the Bruce years were before I was born, but i dont get it.  I'm not saying Earl Bruce was a bad coach the man won 4 Big Ten Titles, but is the grandson of a coach who got fired from Ohio State really untouchable because of that family connection?  Or is it that he is the best recruiter on our staff?

Mark my words, Smith will be "recruiting guru" and someone else gets brought in as WR coach once the 10th assistant is passed by the NCAA in April.

Comment 10 Jan 2017

I didn't actually figure you were that worried.  I was able to work out missing the first two days of classes at Ohio State because I was still out of town visiting family. So if I, a nobody student, had no trouble working out showing up late, there is no way our brand new freshman QB can't get it done.

Comment 10 Jan 2017

There is no way he didn't work that out with the coaches/professors, so don't you worry about that.

Comment 09 Jan 2017

I mean we're so overcapacity on scholarships going 1 guy out (Noah Brown) 1 guy in (Graduate Transfer WR of your choice) doesn't work right now. 

Comment 09 Jan 2017

Who ya wanna dump for him? Because at this point, we are so overloaded from a scholarship standpoint, every new guy in basically has to be 2 guys transferring/taking medical hardship/graduating/going to the draft early.

Comment 03 Jan 2017

Not if the rumors are true and the NCAA is going to allow for the addition of a 10th assistant coach:

God damn you're right! That means each team is playing 2-3 games up. 

Comment 27 Dec 2016

Well we have 10 teams bowling this year, and 3 teams playing in the CFP/NY6 games, meaning the other 7 will be playing a bowl or two up from where they normally would.  It wouldn't be surprising to see the Big Ten come out with a losing record from this, but as long as OSU wins it all, who gives a shit?

Comment 22 Dec 2016

A little creepy but honestly it's pretty impressive work. 

Comment 21 Dec 2016

See the second part would be a good move. Sign him to a 2 year $8 mil contract w/incentives to get more. He proves himself, he gets a big contract for the last 4-5 years of his career. Signing him for $8 mil a year takes away the salary you can give to get another solid starter (read: o lineman) for your team at $4-5 mil per year. Until the Browns start actually building a foundation (Joe Thomas doesn't count anymore) they are going to continue to just suck.

Grimes played against an awful lot of D1/P5 Athletes this year, i think he translates well.
