Good, move them down, make them angry and feel disrespected. Just going to give Urbz and Co. more fuel to motivate them with. The polls mean nothing right now.
I've been under the impression that if a guy like Trey Smith wants to be in, you have to say yes. Same with if say Marvin Wilson and Jay Tufele want to be in, you can't turn down guys that talented. You just have to deal with the scholarship issue later.
I'd say every kid is different, but Oklahoma and OSU are supposedly Okudah's top 2, so seeing us win over them in their house, especially with the way the secondary played, can only be a good thing.
However, I agree, in general 1 game is not going to usually be the determining factor, but in this case, this one game is probably a good thing.
Well its played at the Cotton Bowl during the State Fair of Texas, which is easily double the size of the Ohio State Fair. Was down there for the fair during the game last year and it was absolutely nuts. I wouldn't trade the back and forth of the Game, but the Red River Shootout is pretty fantastic.
All Ivy League Schools, though that is mostly self inflicted.
OU-Texas is a neutral site game in Dallas every year, so it's not like Texas descends on Norman every couple of years.
To be fair to the kid, college is a big transition, and if grade issues are going to happen, it is usually early in their career.
No losses are acceptable, we aren't Michigan. I don't need losses to make me appreciate the wins.
Either from my own couch in Dallas or from The McKinney Avenue Tavern, like 1/2 of a mile down the street from me.
Turkey Ribs? Yuck. Next time I'm in CBUS though (October) I'll give it a go.
I'll be in Columbus for the Northwestern game, may attend an SMU game for kicks, and am tentatively attending the Red River Shootout this year. There was talk of going up to Norman for the Oklahoma-OSU game but that didn't work out logistically, I also may get tickets from work to the Texas Tech-Baylor or the Texas A&M-Arkansas games in Arlington, but neither of those are confirmed yet. So final count is anywhere from 1-5 games this year, only one for the Buckeyes.
It could be the best in Cleveland, but I really don't know what the rosters of St. Eds or St. Iggy's look like this year.
God damn. When Vrabel left, I thought there was no way we could get an upgrade over him. and then we hired LJ SR. That speech actually gave me chills.
I agree with you on all the rest as I said above. I think it's way to soon to crown him the heir apparent, but if he were to come here I am not worried about UT snapping him up. We are one of those programs that we don't lose coaches to another program.
Herman was actually a Grad Assistant at Texas in 1999.
Born in Cincinnati, grew up and went to college in California, has coached in Texas (admittedly longest amount of time), Iowa, and Ohio. All I'm saying is he is not just a Texas guy. Now should we tab him as the heir apparent to Ohio State? No sir, I think that worrying about that is good amount of years away, and you never know what changes between now and then.
Exactly what I was going to say
Haskins is probably a given, as long as they can afford to they are going to redshirt him. The other two I agree, Cooper is still raw technically from what i've read and Victor needs to put on a significant amount of muscle.
From what I've seen, Victor has all the talent in the world and it seems like he is playing well in the scrimmages, but needs to be a hell of a lot of bulk on so he can do things besides catch the ball i.e. block, not get jammed by a guy like Desmond King at the line, and not get broken in half by a safety when he catches the ball.
Admittedly the Cooper years was before I got into College Football (I was 10 when Jim Tressel was hired) but from what I know looking back, we would have lost to Michigan, and either Illinois or Purdue, probably both.
So that is 10-3 heading into bowl season, probably the Capitol One Bowl against Auburn, who wasn't great but had beaten Alabama at the end the season when they were ranked #9. In a toss up I say we win, because why not.
End the season 11-3 with a win over Auburn but a loss to SCUM? Yea I'll take Tress.
Well only if Tress was actually still the coach in that game...
Its not like we aren't getting Ohio recruits in 2017, we have 6 right now (including Marcus Williamson, who is now at IMG).
it felt like he dropped 100
Outrageously good, half my money went there when I was at OSU. They opened one down here in Dallas, and I go all the damn time.
Big Stop Bob for sure
