The only reason I think Eze has a chance as a RB.  The first ever college playoff.  Most of america saw him run through the heart of the south then saw him make duck soup.  So I think that really really will help him everyone will be watching to see what he does this season.

It did shut up most the rest of the nation outside of the big 12.  The great part though is even though the big went 5-5 the 4 ranked teams went 3-1.  I knew that the top big ten teams where either equal or close to the top teams of other confrences.  Michigan State shit the bed against Oregon in the second half.  Plus Wisconsin forgetting they had Melvin Gordon forth quarter against LSU.  Both of these where on the road and should have been wins.  I'm glad during bowl season both got them done.

I hate saying it but the fact that Wisconsin and MSU won it made our national championship and confrence seem all the better in eyes of the espn watchers.

I'm just glad we took players like Nick Connor though.  He seems like the classic player that doesn't have the star rating and glory that other recruits do and we pass on.  Where they go to places like Wisconsin or MSU and just light it on fire.

I was born in cincinnati and grew up playing disc golf there.  In green hills/forest park there was a course I always played some 20 years ago.  I was 12 years old and could shoot under par.  My avg score was -4 my best was -9.   I was really good.  I even played some a few years ago and was able to par a course after a long break.

First anyone who calls Curtis Grant a bust gets no respect from me.  They guy played a heck of a senor year and his leadership was appluaded by guys that get paid millions of dollars to coach young men.  You play football long enough everyone makes a bad play.  Second Vonn Bell recruitment will always be a fond memory.  After picking Ohio State I will never forget he said.  Urban told me if I picked Alabama one way or another I would see him again but he would perfer if I road with him to the game.  Its when I knew we had a great confident coach.  I also think how wonderful Urban must felt looking Vonn in the eyes after hoisting the trophy with a I told you so grin.

Its stupid how much nfl talent we have on the team.

Eze, M.Thomas, Joey Bosa, V.Bell, D.Lee, T.Decker, Brax, Cardale, Price, E.Apple, A.Washtington

With players like Jalin, Dontre, T.Powell, Jt all having a good chance.

This isn't even including our depth which I think has a ton of NFL talent on it.  Like R.McMillan, D.Webb, E.Smith, M.Lattimore, D.Booker, Knox and tons more that have been waiting there turn.

This.  He had a super freshman season.  Not to mention that catch against MState on a broken foot.  I think this is the season he is able to make those plays he almost made.  No shoe string tackles.

Comment 04 May 2015

He will forever be.  Starting MLB and Captain of the first playoff National Champion Buckeyes to me.  I will root sooooo hard for this guy.

Comment 29 Apr 2015

Curtis Grant will forever be one of my fav buckeyes of all time.  Listening to him speak before games gave me goosebumbs.  Hearing the admiration the coaches had for this young man let you know what type of human being this guy is.

Any RPG fans should really buy Pillars of Eternity for computer.  Also Divinity Original Sin is a ton of fun.

Comment 23 Apr 2015

Great thread.  I'm 6'1 and was a 195lbs.  I know it doens't sound like much but I had trouble putting on weight for years.  Then age and my gf is a baker and I never like sweats till she got me on them.  I was always around 175lbs.  I went to put on a par of 34 inch pants and they where really tight.  I realized that sweats and soda was causing it.  I dropped the soda and juice for Cyrstal Light and water and I quit eating sweats.  The hardest thing for me this first week been pizza as I love pizza.  I'm averaging eat 1000-1250 calories a day my first week.  I'm already down to 188.5.  Also I bought carrots and pickles for when I get craving for sweats.  This has really really helped me fight through the times I want to break and give myself any excuse to have a cookie or piece of cheese cake.

The thing that amazed me the most though was how many calories a day I was doing in my life from just drinking liquid.  I don't do a ton of soda but I did with juice.  I was taking in almost 1000 calories a day just from juice and 1 soda a day.

I'm trying to get to 175 again where I felt the best at then increase my calorie intake up to 2000 and still lay off the soda and sweats.

Thanks, I had some house stuff to do and didn't find a link till halftime.  So my brief watching C.Smith, N.Conner jumped off the field to me.  I've felt D.Booker was going to be a monster.  Also how did it take so long for us to offer N.Connor.  He seems like one of those LB we miss out on and watch him making 22 tackles in a game for another team and kick ourselves in the butt.

Comment 19 Apr 2015

Really Urbans done a great job recruiting on D everywhere besides maybe DT.  Our second string D is probably better then 90% of the other big tens starting.

I mean think about this.

Jayln Holmes, DT, J.Cornell, Hubbard or Slade

Dante Booker, Nick Conner, Worley  (BTW did anyone notice booker during spring game?)

D.Webb, Erick Smith, Burrows, M.Lattimore

I think this D could compete for best D in the big ten.

Comment 19 Apr 2015

I always felt when people talked about SEC speed they where really talking about the DE posistion.  Guys that our 280 LBS and could run a 4.7 forty.  You can tell Urban takes this posistion really serous with recruits like Joey, Jayln, Hubbard and on and on.

Comment 19 Apr 2015

This also could be like JG at QB.  Look at Ohio States OL recruiting last year.  Add in the fact he is Catholic and he goes to ND.  You win some you lose some.  Wish the kid luck I'm sure Urban has a guy just as talented in the wings who wants to play for OSU.

Me too how awesome the feeling would be to see all these for the first time.
