According to all of the defensive players Collier did a great job of being Mariota running the Scout Team and really helped them in their preparation. I don't know if that was all smoke in the euphoria of the NC, but I take them at their word. He hasn't shown anything because he redshirted. What had J.T. Barrett shown at this point a year ago? tOSU is loaded at the QB position. Cardale and J.T. will be RS Juniors, Collier a RS Freshman. Joe Borrow will be a true Freshman, by all indications( I mean Birm) 2016 top 5 QB Jarrett Guarantano is as close to a lock as you can get and Danny Clark will arrive in 2017. I don't know what your definition of loaded is but that seems like it to me and I haven't even mentioned the Heisman Trophy Candidate, 2-time B1G POY that still has a year of eligibility left and whether or not he stays.

You guys spend waaaay too much time and energy on the whims of an 18-year-old. Who cares at this point what Torrance Gibson does or doesn't do? He'll eventually make the decision that he feels is best for him and good luck to him, whatever that may be. tOSU is just coming off of one of the most improbable NC runs in CFB history and you guys are concerned with whether or not Torrance Gibson will honor his commitment. How many recruits has UFM 'flipped'? If the young man wants immediate playing time, which he seems to, then why would he come to tOSU? J.T. and Cardale are only sophomores and Stephen Collier, whom everyone seems to have forgotten is a RS Freshman. Gibson hasn't de-committed and according to Birm, whom I trust more than most on this stuff, says he probably won't. As far as him being an attention seeker who wasn't at 18? I love 11W, but there's a reason I don't follow recruiting until NLOI Day and this thread is it.

Comment 23 Jan 2015

If true, its a great decision for the the young man. With the development of EzE and Curtis Samuel and the commitments of Mike Weber and Kareem Walker there won't be any PT for him at tOSU. Dunn is a talented player to be sure and he'll 'Ball Out' at YSU, He's got his NC Ring to boot.

I think he was tired and his ankle hurt!! Can we please just enjoy the National Championship and leave the 'Reality Show' bullshit where it belongs? Our Team just showed their asses and brought home the Gold, let's focus on that!!

Comment 14 Jan 2015

Remember what happened to the 1969 and 2003 teams, they were supposed to repeat too. Shit happens!!

Comment 14 Jan 2015

I subscribe to the Barry Switzer philosophy of Football; "there's no such thing as running up the score, the Offense's job is to score every time they get the ball and if you don't want them to score then stop them."

Comment 13 Jan 2015

Orlando Pace was an honorary Captain, I swear he could still block for a few plays!!

Comment 13 Jan 2015

Football at its core is about 'blocking and tackling' that will never change no matter what Offense you choose to run. Last night proved that, although it had been done previously in the 2010 Rose Bowl. tOsu was a superior team with superior athletes that were just better at blocking and tackling.

Comment 22 Dec 2014

I mean really, first of all who's the knob that would ask that question? What else is he supposed to say, "yeah they'd probably kick our asses again." The two teams will play again, but MG3 will be plying his trade in the NFL, of course if he really meant what he said, he could always come back, Mike Hart did, and how'd that work out for him?

Comment 22 Dec 2014

Its a 'bad idea' in any iteration, leave the recruiting to the staff. Just be a fan!! Only 3 things could happen with this and two of them are bad!!

Comment 18 Dec 2014

Does it seem odd to anyone but me, that Cager's stated reason for dropping tOSU was the departure of Tom Herman? Herman wouldn't have been his Position Coach and wasn't his primary recruiter. So I'm at a loss as to why his leaving has such a profound impact on Cager. You'd think that as QB's both Torrance Gibson and Joe Borrow would be more concerned, but they don't seem to be. Maybe I'm over-thinking this but it just seems strange.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

It doesn't matter, that ship has sailed and Mike Weber committed, Damien will be fine wherever he chooses to go and so will tOSU. Time to focus on who we have and let others focus on who we don't have.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

The article mentioned something about delusional TTUN Fans, didn't it? I believe the above rant is the perfect example. Your only take from this article is it's bad because Lloyd Carr wasn't really forced out? At this point who really cares? The premise of the article is that TTUN Football isn't relevant now and hasn't been for a really long time. What's the argument for that opinion? Jim Harbaugh doesn't want the TTUN job, if he did he'd have taken it by now, every indication he's given is that he wants to stay in the NFL.

TTUN, as is clearly stated in the article, after this bullshit search and everyone they really want turning down the job will hire some nondescript coach and try to sell him to the fanbase as a savior of the program and a "Michigan Man" just as they did 3 years ago with Brady Hoke. Hoke turned out to be exactly what everyone said he was, a mediocre coach who's career record was barely above .500. So wrap yourself in past glory and watch BTN Highlights of Woodson, Howard, Biakabatuka and that bullshit "Tiebreaker" Documentary, which is nothing more than old TTUN malcontents still whining about being robbed after a game that they didn't even win. Be happy with the 1969 Win  and fondly remember the days of Bo. Your program is garbage and everyone but Kyle Kalis knows it.

I know Zach has aspirations, but he's in a prime postion. He's been with UFM for a few years now, both at FLA and tOSU and he's burnishing his own brand. He's gone from being Earle Bruce's Grandson to a respected coach in his own right. The work he's doing here is pretty remarkable and UFM's comments about the receiving corps when he came here put even more of spotlight on Zach, UFM is Heisenberg when it comes to his assistants. Zach Smith will hang around and when UFM hangs it up, he'll be the #1 guy and a legacy to boot.

I don't know what the big deal is about this, whether its true or not. Ed Warriner said when he accepted the job here that he was looking for the opportunity to be a HC again.

BuckeyeEddie~

You make a cogent point about Chris Ash, but it never hurts to upgrade when the opportunity presents itself. I thought this was a forum where opinions could be expressed and ideas exchanged, even ones you don't agree with? I guess I was wrong. If UFM calls me about that personal advisor position, I'll recommend you, I'm happy with the work I do now.

I've read the same thing, but a phone call from UFM wouldn't hurt. He is after all, the best closer in the business.
