Dan Gilbert included...
100k retweets would most likely be the most retweeted post in the world of football recruiting, and even for BuckeyeNation it's most likely impossible to reach. In the history of twitter, the most retweeted post was actually a picture of a kid asking for free chicken nuggets from the Wendys twitter account. He needed to get 18 million to get free nuggets for life, and he got about 3.5 million. Which is still a record. The internet is a fascinating place.
Should we tell him?
Didn't MSU have a WR play both ways just last year? I forget his name, but he was their top WR and I wanna say they had him play some DB because they were thin at the position. It wouldn't be out of the question given precedent.
EDIT: Looked it up and Tony Lippett played some DB in 2014 while also having 1200 receiving yards and 11 TDs.
Much more enlightening. I thought it was kinda weird that the recruit's response was to threaten to decommit. Who knows what really happened, but it in my opinion it sounds like a teenager trying to make a scene both at the time of the event and then later by decommitting and spreading the story on the internet.
Yeah, definitely not blowing too large of a bubble haha. Just a thought I had
To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if Simmons was ready to commit to OSU based on how his recruitment sounded like it was playing out, but with our two commits who just signed we didn't have any scholarships for him. Maybe that caused Matta to tell him to wait until the next signing period in case we have someone transfer out or leave for the NBA early. That might be why Simmons pushed his timeline back.
This is a very pro-OSU mindset, but who knows with recruiting lol.
Jourdan Lewis said that Rutgers players were celebrating the fact they were down only 19 at half, Harbaugh was pretty mad— Ashley Scoby (@AshleyScoby) November 8, 2015
Rutgers players were apparently in tunnel at halftime saying they were "comeback kids," etc. Ticked Harbaugh, players off apparently— Ashley Scoby (@AshleyScoby) November 8, 2015
Not sure if it warrants going for two, but this seems to be the justification.
*insert Amir Williams joke here*
The SEC has five teams in this top 25. The B1G also has five teams in this top 25.
Hopefully he can still be able to play eventually. He's still only a freshman even though it seems like he's been here almost three years (enrolled early, medical redshirt, and also standard redshirt I think?). I'm definitely rooting for him.
My biggest hope for this year is that the new big guys will at least be competent. Yes we lost probably the best player in college basketball, but I hope/think that the combo of Thompson and Giddens, and maybe a little of Bell, will be a large upgrade from Amir and Trey. Having a post defense and some scoring would be a huge boost.
Just wait till the Michigan State game?
It sounded like it mattered to us when it was Terrell Hall. Sure Hall ended up decommitting instead of having his scholly pulled, but I'm pretty confident that Cupp would have eventually flipped to us even if Dantonio didn't pull his scholly.
Well to be fair, he beat out both in fall training camp last year. And then he got injured in the last week.
Devin Smith was a second round NFL draft pick almost solely because of his ability to be a "deep ball threat." Not often would you see him making intermediate catches, but he was almost always the guy making the 30+ yard catches. Being able to catch deep balls definitely is a talent.
To be fair to Spence, nobody knew he would have those struggles coming out of high school.
Anybody got another way to watch the episode? This video got taken down due to copyright stuff and I'm trying to show the episode to a friend.
Eh he's a kid, the pic is his header almost certainly because of the girl. Nice to know he has some OSU apparel though.
They played together for a year in high school.
2017's defensive backfield situation doesn't seem any more clear than 2016's. With Shaun Wade and Marcus Williamson already committed, Isaiah Pryor potentially committing soon, Richard LeCounte's multiple visits since last year, and Lamont Wade being high on us I'm wondering how many we could take. Obviously these are all guys you have a very hard time saying no to.
Gerdeman has some seriously dry humor, and I'm pretty sure he was joking when he posted this. I remember seeing it on my twitter feed and chuckling.
That's a very good problem to have imo.
I really don't think we can win it all this year, not without Love. I feel like the Cavs can beat whoever makes it out of the Wizards-Hawks series, but I really don't like their chances against any of the Western Conference teams.
