Things are constantly changing in recruiting, but who would you peg as the remaining offensive linemen we get by February?

And additionally, if we get two more OL that will be nine in the last two classes, could that scare some away for 2016? (We have so many Ohio studs to sign at that spot!)

Saw plenty of pretentious signs from NU students on College Gameday back when we played last season, however I'm sure they don't even know how to give other fans crap about football.

Where exactly is the Ackerman rd location where they practice so much?  Unless I'm thinking of a wrong Ackerman road, it is a pretty small road and nowhere on it have I ever seen fields where the team could practice.  It's also extremely close to the WHAC.  Can anyone shed some light on this situation?

One important aspect  to me seems to be that (due to the time the complaint was made) the band could not be investigated when it was in session.  Witnessing the entire organization in action for a few months as opposed to when it is not even running would give a much better picture of how things were going, and how the culture was.  It's pretty important to be involved or embedded in a group for a significant time before you make a sweeping declaration about a culture problem.

And on a separate note, the Dispatch has done a very poor job of balanced reporting on this entire ordeal.  It has flipped to flat-out muckraking in a lot of ways.  There are a ton of testimonials coming from other news outlets that at least depict some other stories and experiences in the band as opposed to taking off with a single narrative and assuming the absolute worst.

I appreciate the message 11W continues to push about how schools owe it to college football and to their base of support to keep things fun and user friendly.  If institutions stay out of touch with reality for too long they could really start to damage the beautiful thing that is college football.

I am very ready for a new receiver(s) to rise.  Urban has been killing it on the recruiting trail but I am getting kind of tired of only being able to say that players have a lot of potential.  Some of these 2014 guys should make some serious noise.

Unfortunately that is a tall tale.  It was written for Men's Glee and was then voted the alma mater out of the blue even though the writer thought it was too depressing.  We all still love it though.

Although there are scenes like the one up top at every camp a major program holds, it is still cool to see a shot of Meyer addressing so many eager young players.

Whoops, I thought he was considered close to a lock.  If Nick Conner is next on the list let's jump on it.  

Birm seemed to be pretty confident that he would end up here, I guess in the end recruiting still is one big guessing game.

Although the outcome was not favorable last year, it was a great experience.  The stadium is downright impressive and our mobile fanbase made an amazing atmosphere for a conference championship.  I had the privilege of being at almost all the games last season and can say that being on that field before the game began was an unforgettable experience and by far the loudest that I had ever heard a stadium get (obviously being inside helped, but it was still remarkable).

They always sneak in a word or two into skull sessions that require a quick trip to the dictionary.  Read Ohio State stuff and learn, that's the dream right?
