It has been slow and frustrating to see us off to a slow start. I guess that is what happens when you recruit studs. Studs have more options, bigger egos, etc. I would love to see us with 10 commitments, but I will be happier when we have 10 of the nation's best commit just before signing day.
I had high hopes for Rod, but have accepted that his OSU career probably topped out 2 seasons ago when he received 5 carries a game behind Hyde. He may have the most potential, but I have a hard time believing he is the best back. He will probably play mop up duty behind EZE, Dunn, Dontre and Samuel. I would like to see him get some run to see if he can break out but time is ticking.
Stanford will lower their academic regulations because he plays Stanford football.
I got your back Route4. Fellow Cards fan. I guess someone forgot about all our recent division titles, playoff success, World Series appearances and victories. Oh yeah, and our rich history and fantastic fans.
The have had the event outside a handful of times, most recently wrestlemania 24 in Orlando, FL. Granted this is a warm weather state. The weather in Ohio could be 70 degrees or 14 degrees in early April. It has rained at multiple wrestlemania's, but I agree, too much of a risk to hold it in a midwest state.
Too lazy. But yes Unky I should indeed look into that.
He hasnt played a snap of his sophomore season, and the team hasnt played an actual down, and you are stating he will transfer. We dont even know who the starters will be for this season yet. Then you associate Mitchell's situation to Johnson's and say it will have an affect on recruiting out of state kids. I dont get any of that.
We have three LB positions wide open right now. Sure, Perry seems like a lock to start, but just three weeks ago most of us here had Johnson taking Perry's place. To me, Johnson has a job for the taking - if he works hard enough and plays well enough. He was in the 2-deep last year before getting hurt. If he doesnt play this year, he will still have two years of eligibility left and a good chance for playing time.
The entire battle royal I kept saying to my buddy "who is the guy in the yellow and black trunks, he looks awesome". He kept eliminating people so finally asked some guy in the table next to me. He said Cesaro. I was like "who is that". He looked great and easily scopped up Big Show.
I was hoping they would finally cave and have Cena break bad. He is pretty stale. Make him bad, get him a new finishing move. I guess he is involved with too many outside projects to go heel, but I think it would be good for the longevity of his career.
I read the Sepinwall review last night - great read.
I think you are more optimistic than most.
Buckeye Local school district.
I agree. The lack of commits is seriously affecting my 11w hits.
I know it will pick up, it just seems like we have no momentum, when the opposite is true.
Mark it down, just changing area codes will now make him the best offensive coordinator in college football.
I know last year our best option, especially when Braxton wasnt having a good game, was to turn and hand the ball to Hyde. I am hoping this year we get to see touches from a bunch of different guys in the backfield each game - Elliot, Smith, Dunn, Wilson, etc. Obviously, feeding the hot hand when applicable.
Mike - You left off Indiana........wait......my bad.
I was wondering the same thing Fitzbuck.
Many of you think Luke Fickell went straight into coaching after his pro-football aspirations fizzled out. It is simply not true. Did you know Luke Fickell tried his hand at professional wrestling? In fact, he was the third member of the famous WWF tag team The Nasty Boys. It was Brian Knobbs, Jerry Sags and Luke Fickell. At Starcade 6, Luke cost them a championship match against the Harlem Heat when Booker T hit him with the spinarpooni. After the match Nasty Knobbs hit Luke with Jeff Jarrett's guitar splintering Luke's right orbital bone. With his football and wrestling dreams done, he became a graduate assistant and budding defensive coordinator. True Story.
