My take:

Recruiting drama is easier to take when 1) Urban Meyer is your coach and 2) Your team is already stockpiling recruits in multiple classes. I'll sit back, let Urban and company do their thing, and not spend much time worrying.

Agreed. I think Walker will be a very good RB, and I'm not going to act like any other way just because he might be headed elsewhere. That being said, I don't see any drop off with Williams. Walker might hit his top gear faster, but Williams looks faster over all. Also love the physical, punishing way he runs the football.

Not sure what I get what Walker is thinking. When Zeke leaves this year, there are plenty of carries to be had (even with Curtis Samuel and Mike Weber). Still, grab the guy that really wants to be a Buckeye.

Was sitting in front of a high school ref at the game (who was a Buckeye fan), and he was complaining all game as well. 

I've been to a lot of games over the years, but it appeared to be the worst game I've ever seen officiated.

Great stuff Jonathan! Welcome aboard. 

By the way - Anyone else notice IU's turf? Most high schools do a better job maintaining their turf than the folks in Bloomington have. Embarrassing...

I feel like we start to see some steps in the right direction this weekend. These issues have been discussed ad nauseam, with fingers being pointed in a ton of different directions - play calling, blocking, execution, penalties and so on. I for one am ready to move on. 

Regardless, we've learned that expectations were likely too high coming in, and that this team has some things to work through to be great once again. That's fine, as long as the expectations don't impede the process.

As my college golf coach would say all the time - "Golf isn't owned, it's just borrowed sometimes." 

This story is living proof.

Gotta give Gustin and the family credit. Have played things close to the vest. No one seems to know much...and the Crystal Ball predictions have been very quiet.

Good for him. The best way to continue to get great recruits is to show you're a players first program...and it is cool to see Buckeye Nation rooting for Cardale to make the wise decision! One of the craziest stories I've ever seen play out, and excited to see how the NFL pans out for him.

2002 is one of the best two or three title games of all time. It was a true David versus Goliath story that made it truly satisfying to win. That being said, what makes this year so remarkable is not just the one game, but the title run. Ohio States last three games was like watching a team peak at the right time during March Madness. They steam rolled some amazing teams, and knocked off the three Heisman finalists in the process. If all of that wasn't good enough, it was with a third string quarterback. This season is one for the history books, and was the run that will keep people talking about it for years to come.

Not a bad comparison at all. 

He's entering uncharted territory for me that I didn't think was possible...he might be passing Eddie George as my favorite Buckeye of all time. 

Comment 13 Jan 2015

No disrespect to Missouri, as they are a solid program, but Zeke gave a pretty nice pitch when interviewed at the end of the game. He picked the Bucks over the Tigers, and it has worked out pretty well. Beckner Jr. jump on board! 

Comment 10 Jan 2015

Why does everyone keep saying depth is a concern? We've got tons of youngsters on the roster and have five defensive lineman already committed in the 2015 class with another guy or two jumping on.

If Washington does indeed stay and we only lose Frazier, Miller and Bennett...I actually think the line will be more deep next season, especially the WDE spot thanks to guys like Tyquan Lewis, Darius Slade and Jayln Holmes.

Comment 09 Jan 2015

Several UK reporters are saying UK was third...behind Alabama and OSU. Crazy.

Harris appears to be a great young man, and should have a great career at Bama. No need for OSU fans to shed a tear, as Weber has shown that he an elite back as well, and seems to fit the system quite well.

Comment 06 Jan 2015

Beckner Jr. is still in the plans. 

According to Kurelic, after Wilkins picked Clemson, the staff is making several calls/offers to some of the remaining defensive lineman on their board.
