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.

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. 

Comment 05 Jan 2015

Our current success will be a much bigger factor for the 2016 class IMO. 

Best of luck to Wilkins. I think we've added two solid guys in Alabi and Landers for DT depth, but definitely have missed out on a big time play maker in the last two classes. Landers may surprise us and be that guy. 

Will be interesting to see if they go all out for Beckner Jr. or offer another in-state kid like DaVon Hamilton for more depth. 

Comment 18 Dec 2014

If this year has taught us anything it should be to ever rule a player out. So many players like C. Jones, B. Dunn, C. Smith, S. Miller, D. Baldwin, C. Carter, R. Frazier, etc...were counted out or under appreciated at one point or another. 

Has Schutt lived up to the recruiting ranking thus far? No. And in fact, I am much more excited about guys like Munger and Hill at this point. That being said, the light bulb can come on at any moment. 

Comment 08 Oct 2014

Not sure I get the anxiety about the defensive line. Already have 3 commitments in this class there, including two of the best players in the class in Cornell and Jones. We brought in 3 solid defensive line commitments last year as well. 

I absolutely think the staff needs to grab a big DT in this class, but with Washington, Schutt, Hill, Munger, Carter and Sprinkle, it's not like the cupboard is bare. In fact, isn't that why Price got moved to OL, because of the depth on the interior of the line?

Things are fine. 

Comment 23 Sep 2014

After watching the Bearcats against Toledo and Miami (OH), it's not the defense that should worry Buckeye fans...it's the offense. In fact, they gave up almost 600 yards to the Rockets. 

Comment 16 Sep 2014

Was at the game on Saturday.

No doubt Marshall is a bit more elusive and physical returning punts. That being said...he mishandled two punts on Saturday...1) Fair caught one ball inside the ten yard line and 2) Chose not to field another catchable one, which was downed inside the ten.

If he wants to be the primary punt returner, he's going to have to do the little things too. I do hope he masters those things, because he seems to be more natural at the spot.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

While there is no doubt the play calling could/should have been better against VT, people need to quit discounting what Meyer said last week. This young team didn't get to play out of their base offense once in the first two weeks, and finally got to see a standard 4-3 against Kent St. The results were that Herman/Meyer got to call plays they had practiced and trusted a young offense with. 

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Agreed on all accounts. Raekwon looked really good in his brief action. While I'm sure he has work to do in pass coverage...I can't imagine him being more lost than Curtis Grant at this point. Love Grant, but he hurt the Buckeyes in trying to get off the field on 3rd down.
