I personally think Hooker is going to be great, and the Peppers was overrated in College, and has not shown he can be a starting safety in the NFL.  With that said, Hooker has an aversion to tackling, and injuries. He lasted til the 15th pick for reasons, there is no guarantee that he will be the next Ed Reed. The draft is about getting value, and Peppers plus a 1st rounder is greater value than just Hooker.  We all hate him b/c Michigan, but at the end of the first round he is one of the few players in the draft that could be a game changer on defense.  He could also bust and be out of the league in 3 years, but at that point in the draft I think you take the chance.  I'll find a way to root for Peppers just like I found a way to root for Braylon, or Johnny, or any of the other knuckleheads the Browns have drafted, b/c hey, maybe this year!

This. Couldn't find the quote, but I read somewhere that Tressel wuold take fliers on lower rated guys from ohio on the recommendation of high school coaches (such as Ted Ginn Sr.) When they hit (see Troy Smith) great.  Urban isn't taking fliers on low rated guys, because he's recruiting top 300 guys from all over the nation, and we'll probably start seeing more Ohio guys pop up as stars at other schools that didn't go to OSU because they weren't really recruited to go to OSU.

Things look good, I'm worried about Brantley, but even if he isn't healthy its gonna be between us and Boston in the AL. EE's contract might look bad in a few seasons, but he should be a significant upgrade over Napoli, only question is if defensively he can play first or is strictly a DH now. We should dominate the rest of the AL Central, Detroit has 4 good players all on the wrong side of 30, and I imagine they'll look to rebuild now that Illitich has passed, KC is rebuilding, CHIsox are rebuilding, Minnesota will eventually be good with the picks they're getting but I doubt its this year. A Chicago-Cleveland rematch would be fun, but its certainly not a done deal.

Man, I really like Hubbard, his open field tackle on peppers was a snapshot of his abilities. People will consistently underrated him b/c he was a safety three years ago, but I'm a huge fan.

He'll be good in the pro's, but I seriously doubt a safety gets taken in the top 10, there's only been 2 ever I think? (Berry and taylor I believe, please correct me if I'm wrong) The bears need help else where, I imagine they'll be taking a QB.

Martell is talented, and enrolling early, but he's not a physical freak like some 5 stars are Ii.e. Pryor, Fournette, Clowney, etc). Considering the step up in speed from high school to college, I highly doubt he plays next year, the chances he passes JT, Burrows and Haskins are pretty slim.

My favorites are the ones where they are talking about how they would win against Alabama because they match up well, or something. Absolutely delusional.
Comment 12 Dec 2016

I also thought he was overrated, a beast in High school but never learned to play, just was bigger and faster then everybody.  The guy I was disappointed didn't pan was Trey Johnson. I think knee injuries ended his career?

My Dad and I are taking a road trip to Baltimore for the Browns and OSU games.  Anyone tailgating before the OSU game? We'd be happy to pitch in food/beer/money.

I disagree that his pro position in safety. I think he'll be a linebacker similar to darron lee. As the NFL becomes more and more of a passing league, teams need linebackers who can hit and who can cover.
Comment 19 Sep 2016
As buckeye fans, we get way to defensive about this kid. Michigan is allowed to have good players, and peppers is really good. He's gonna be a first round draft pick and start in the NFL next year. To answer the OP's question though. I think he'd be a linebacker. He's a lighter, faster darron lee, and I think if he were at osu we would have packed a few more pounds on him. (Lee is listed at 6-1 238 and peppers is 6-1 210)

So, first off, we've got about 3 years left of LeBron's prime.  Trading for picks/rookie contracts isn't going to help, because once LeBron's done we are back to basketball purgatory.  I think the Cavs are clearly the #2 team in the NBA, and that Golden State will go down as one of the best teams of all time.  They will lose Barnes, Ezeli, and probably Livingston this season I believe, so expecting a huge drop-off is unlikely, but they probably won't be 73 wins great as the contracts start to mount up and they lose some of their crazy depth.  We could move Kyrie easier, but despite his defensive weaknesses, and his penchant for heroballing it, I don't think you should trade a 24 year old All star that can drop 40 in an NBA finals game.  We can't add any contracts through free agency, so that brings us to Love.  Against most NBA teams, he's good, and despite the terrible matchup, he hasn't played horribly this finals (no one on the cavs is a positive +/-, but take out Game 3 where he didn't play and Love is near the top of the team. He was plus 18 in game depsite only scoring 2 points)  I think we should hold the course.  We're not going to be able to trade him for anybody as good as Wiggins, so I think we should hope that us playing together longer under Lue (give the guy a training camp before hating on him, although I haven't loved some of his playoff rotation decisions) gives us a boost. If that Golden state takes a step back or loses to someone we do match up well against (why did OKC have to choke?) we can win a title with the team we have.  To answer the question though I'd kick the tires on blake Griffen/CP3 for Kyrie and Love just for shits and giggles.

Yeah people are too hard on him. He's brash, but if you're gonna dish it out, you've gotta take it, and hes never complained about people mocking his celebrations on the field.
Comment 20 Jan 2016

I dunno. I'm not trying to say Michigan is right, and I don't think Ohio State is wrong.  With that being said, I don't want to be a Penn State fan and blindly defend everything my school does no matter what. Recruiting can very quickly and very easily become a shady business, and we might not ever know the whole story with Hill, or Swenson, or Dean or the other guys the Harbough may or may not have forced out, or the punter grayshirt/not grayshirt and went to florida thing a few years ago.  My point in saying this is that whatever moral high ground Michigan fans think they have is gone.
