With Ohio State being Ohio State and James Franklin eating worlds recruiting, there's going to be some real nasty games starting in a few years. Who knows would end up coaching Michigan too if Hoke does, in fact, get terminated. The B1G East is probably second to only the SEC West, or will be very, very soon.

Comment 28 Jul 2014

Of note: Ohio State hasn't done much with New Jersey this year either (the class is small, I understand that). That state is going to be a battle for us vs. Franklin going forward. Meyer was killing BOB there.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

For me, the "worst" loses aren't ones against teams that were any good at all.

I don't feel much pain losing to 2005 + 2008 Penn State. Those teams were very good, to be honest. I DO FEEL PAIN losing to 2001 Penn State.

I don't feel much pain losing to 2004 Purdue. They had bite that year. I DO FEEL PAIN losing to 2009 Purdue.

2007 Illinois stung, despite the fact that Illinois did get to the Rose Bowl that year (in part because we went beyond there).

You get it.

And announced shortly thereafter that he's announcing next week. You see it your way, I'll see it mine.

Comment 22 Jul 2014

Steve Wiltfong at 247 just broke that he's heard Penn State may have taken FSU over as the top choice.

Comment 22 Jul 2014

Cancelled his FNL visit and is suddenly announcing next week. Looking like James Franklin may get his first 5-star.

Comment 17 Jul 2014

I've grown fond of this game being at noon to be honest. It's like an unwritten agreement between us and Bama-Auburn and Florida-FSU... or something. I like beating Michigan, then sitting back for the rest of the day and watch the upsets happen.

Comment 30 Jun 2014

We'll beat them this year, no doubt about it in my mind. We're just too good vs. a team with a depleted offense... who goes on the road. That said, they'll get their crack at redemption next year when the tables are turned.

Comment 28 Jun 2014

I dunno man. The NCAA seems to want the Penn State punishment back. I think they'll either get the scholarships or bowl ban lifted for this season, and next year (2015) both completely.

Comment 27 Jun 2014

I keep throwing this out there (and my fellow brethren keep downvoting because it doesn't fit the agenda, apparently), but there's no way we finish #1 in the conference with 18 commitments IF Penn State gets the scholarships back and take the full 25. With their current quality of commits, 247's composite won't have us jump them. Just preparing you mentally—and myself—for the "OMG RECRUITING" flood.

Comment 25 Jun 2014

To be fair, PSU will probably end up with a larger and "better" class, especially if the scholarships come back in full later this summer (they'll take all 25 and are offering greyshirts). In that case, even if we do max out, which looks to be about ~20, I don't see how we pass them. I don't think it'll be "easy" at all IMO.

Comment 25 Jun 2014

Everybody's on the same page as I am with the ~20 scholarships. Could be 18, could be 22, but it'll be in that range. Not sure I'm prepared for the outcry from fans who don't understand the numbers if OSU doesn't finish #1 in the B1G for 2015.
