If you're going to give an iPad to one student athlete, you have to give an iPad to all of them.
Wow I completely missed that then haha. Ridley is the wide receiver committed to Alabama and played lights out at the Opening right? That would be really impressive if we could pick him up.
This is the first time I've even heard someone mention Calvin Ridley is being recruited by OSU, let alone say Zach Smith is a major player in his recruitment. Birm, getting a recruit on campus is always the first step, so wht are the chances we get an official from him?
What the heck caused this to take place?
I doubt it's something as trivial as social media love that is making Birm think he is trending away. It was recently stated in one of the FNL threads that Birm lives in Arizona, so I'm sure he's got some good connections there and is hearing whispers.
Didn't the eldest Boren brother, Justin, start at michigan and then transfer to OSU? He might have played against Zach when Zach was a freshman, but I don't know.
After actually looking it up, Zach's first year was 2009, the same year Justin was first eligible to play for the Bucks.
Yeah, I feel like someone would recognize Sweat if he were there. A 6'5" guy with dreads kinda catches your attention haha.
At first I had the same thought as most of you guys, "why does it matter if he cussed him out?" But if the reason he was ousted was lying during the investigation and he said he never swords at the students, this is kinda a big deal.
Also, do you guys think this tirade was actually caused by the drum major's refusal to stand on his head, or do you guys think that was hypothetical? If that was the real issue, it seems pretty juvenile to force students to do that and then get so angry over it.
I don't think I would get my hopes up about Kirk like someone below said. If I recall I think Birm spends a lot of time in Arizona regardless. And by saying he'll be on gray box watch, I think that just means he'll be manning the website and posting a gray box if the need arises. My guess would be Conrad, especially if Connor can get in his ear and tell him how good it feels to get that offer and commit to the good guys.
Well if the previous players and alums won't allow black jerseys, it looks like Urban is doing all he can to replace gray with silver/chrome for alternate jerseys. That's what I'm kinda picking up with all te chrome in the locker room. It looks awesome!
I think it will be over pretty soon. I think the kid just isn't ready to make a decision and doesn't want to make a mistake and end up decommitting from somewhere. I'm not gonna get into the whole train of thought that his parents are trying to make him go to a certain place, but I just think he's trying to make the best decision. I'd be surprised if the process got really drawn out.
Haha no worries, you're not an idiot. It's way too easy to mix things up or forget things with all the recruiting info we're given. I've done it multiple times haha. Have an upvote :)
If I asked you "Did I pay you money for that job you did? I'll need to be refreshed," is that evidence saying I did pay you or didn't pay you?
That was a seemingly rhetorical question he asked in a reply to another person saying he would have to eat a shoe. If Birm actually is confused about whether or not he said he would eat a shoe, this is not the evidence you're looking for.
EDIT: It would help us out if you could give us the link to that thread or the thread title so we could see for ourselves.
Wrong kid. You're thinking of Travis Waller.
Auburn throws the ball less than we do. Where is all the negative recruiting towards wide receivers when we need it?
Kinda sarcasm, but maybe not really
Vonn Bell y'all.
Every student athlete for Ohio State gets an iPad. There was a freshman in my dorm last year who was on the pistol team and even he had an iPad.
It's kinda funny because when he was asked to help recruit kids when he went to the junior Olympic qualifying, one of the things the high schoolers really liked was the fact that they got iPads.
If Sweat's FNL visit has gone from tentative to expected, that's HUGE. I might be reading into the wording of that too much, but getting him on campus for a second time before the end of summer would be awesome. Great write up Jordan.
Don't believe so. If I remember, the eating your shoe bet was in reference to Waller getting an offer, or ending up a Buckeye.
Haha I'm glad you found a better way to get upvotes man. Funny gifs and pictures are much more lucrative than forum posts. Keep up the good work!
Haha man, he said he couldn't have picked a better time. As in, if Matta had his pick of when to have LBJ return to Ohio, this would be the time.
Not sure if you were being sarcastic :/
Yeah, after seeing that Birm said he felt "great" about our chances to get Nick Bosa my fears are put to rest haha.
Vrabel recruited Joey to OSU and I'm gonna guess had made inroads with Nick as well. As for why I'm worried, I just believe this is what Birm was talking about when he said losing Vrabel would make a bigger impact than we anticipated. Idk, I just think the Bosa brothers preferred Vrabel's style of keeping the best guys out on the field, instead of a rotation.
I'm probably just paranoid haha.
I think people already assuming it's a foregone conclusion Nick Bosa comes to OSU need to pump the breaks. I think his recruitment will be the one place we really see the loss of Mike Vrabel, IMO.
