I think some of the concern I have with this two deep is the fact that many of these players don't have much experience as a result of injury. So, now they will be counted on to contribute and historically they were hurt. Is this something that will get fixed because the team really needs them to play or should we count on needing their backups? It could also mean they have superior talent as long as they remain healthy. Either way it will be an interesting year.
So is there going to be a Hurry Up tomorrow? : )
Urbz, are you saying that Johnny Manziel is taking the video?
We have had real good success in placing our DB's in the NFL. (See yesterday's NFL Championship games) This year we will have a few more guys enter the league. Our coaches, and more specifically Coach Coombs, have years of experience evaluating young men determining whether they will be a good fit for the program and succeed at the highest level. I trust their decisions, as they have a successful track record, to only bring players that will help the program. While we ponder the if's and but's, it is always a good idea to just wait and see what tomorrow brings. You never know, as the past has shown, we could be surprised.
As for Burns, I hope he has a great college career. His physical abilities, running and hitting are on par with other top athletes that have joined the Ohio State team. He is the type of player that by his Sophomore or Junior year will have a big impact on this team. Good luck to him and welcome to de familia.
You are all wrong. Tommy Emmanuel is the best out there.
I was wondering the same thing. No matter if this doesn't get us a top flight DT then I don't know what it will take.
Man the last 4 weeks have been a roller coaster in regards to our player misconduct. Live and learn I guess.
My hope is that Antwuan makes December 17th a special day for the Buckeyes, because that is my birthday. It would be a nice gift.
Secondly, Dantonio took over a Michigan State program that had a winning percentage in the .500 range, and see where they are now. There wasn't any history of great football at that school but with the right staff and support things can change. Ash could basically do the same thing at Rutgers. If the administration is willing to invest in facilities and coaches, they too will experience success. I see a lot of similarities in these two programs.
