It didn't look like a full go drill to me, having played o and d line in high school (I know, truly a subject matter expert level of experience on that one). That said, I think the 4 ends of Hubbard, Holmes, Lewis, and of course, the Bosanator are just going to destroy offenses next year.

I get depth chart concerns, I really do. I don't think it is in any way wrong to take a look at our situation and say "wow that team is loaded at QB, maybe a team with as much young talent as UT or Rutgers, the place my dad played may be a better fit."

That being said, either join us on the Dark Side, or lose to us.

I'm not one to bash Birm, the man (and you 305) are pretty much where I get buckeye recruiting news from exclusively, but the reason I think people get up in arms about it is Birm is a guy who isn't just throwing shots in the dark. Fans want these guys to be Bucks, probably too much, and when Birm says we aren't gonna get them, even through just a crystal ball, I think a lot of people have a knee jerk reaction. 

Just my 2 cents.

I in no way want Thad to leave, he is my guy and I think his best days are ahead. That said though, if I have to replace him, my first call is going to Brad Stevens or Sean Miller, though I'm not sure either would leave their gigs to be the Buckeyes coach.

My guess is because Marrow is a Tight Ends coach and we have had Tim Hinton since Urban took over the program.

John Simon, the man was the absolute epitome of toughness. Like Urban Meyer said "He makes all of us look in the mirror and ask ourselves 'are we doing enough, are we doing as much as he is doing? No, we gotta do more."  That was in reference to the fact that Simon was injured for the entirety of his senior year and there still wasn't a harder working player on that field.

The other one, and the one i think gets overlooked often, is Braxton Miller.  Consider first his freshman season, a season where he got knocked and smacked around while fighting week in and week out to save the soul of a team that was lost in the wasteland between Tatgate and the promised land of Coach Meyer.  The other key bit of evidence is last years Orange Bowl.  Vic Beasley and the rest of the Clemson defense pounded X-Brax during that game, and especially on the play ending the second to last series, it looked like he was done.  However, he got back up, came back into the game when other men would have quit, even though it would end with another bone crusher of a hit, which either resulted in an injury that has sidelined him for over a year, or if he had already been injured, had to be a moment more painful than most of us have ever imagined.

1. Ohio State Football... Duh.  College Football in general to me is the most glorious, tradition filled event in modern sports.

2. Ohio State Basketball, but March Madness is just so damn awesome.

3. The Pittsburgh Steelers, though my interest in the NFL is most certainly starting to wane.

4. The PGA, Masters Week is probably my least productive week of the year.

5. The Atlanta Braves, even if they have been Barving it up lately.

6. The Washington Capitols.

7. A Lebron led Cav's I guess, though the NBA really sucks.

Comment 04 Mar 2015

I was number 75 to channel the power of my two favorite linemen of all time, Orlando Pace and Mean Joe Greene.  Unfortunately, I had nearly no athletic ability to speak of, but with my badass number and old school neck roll, I sure looked scary.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

I just got offered a job working in sales/account management for a major technology firm.  So yea I guess I do that now.

Comment 24 Feb 2015

I like the theorem, but we should probably call it "The Hilliard Effect" just so the grammar Nazi's don't come after us.

Comment 18 Feb 2015

"What do you mean we can't draft Peyton Manning?" -cue sad trombone sound-

Yea, I could see it.

Comment 11 Feb 2015

Honestly, this kind of thing doesn't bother me.  We can get all shiesty with UM for this but from what I've read, he had an offer from Rutgers for the same job.  Good for him for moving up in his career field.

Comment 06 Feb 2015

I disagree, I think this blows over in a couple weeks.  This kinda thing happens every year, hell it happened at 3 or 4 other major schools this year alone.

Comment 06 Feb 2015

Wilcher was always going to do this once his former teammate Harbaugh got here.  Now he just gets to be a smug, holier-than-thou-im-protecting-my-kids, douche about it by screaming about this from every mountain top and radio station that will hear him.  Everyone is acting like this is the worst thing in OSU history, as if we have some long history of getting recruits from Cass Tech, when as far as I know, the only notable recruits we have from there are Damon Webb, Mike Weber, Josh Alabi, and Vernon Gholston.
