Are you able to provide any insight on how Erick Smith is coming along? It seems Arnette is the first string Nickel rather than Smith, or Webb sliding to Nickel and Smith coming in at Safety. Has Arnette passed Smith in terms of having the coaches' trust, or do you believe he is still being brought along slower due to recovering from injury?
I wonder if Jordan might serve as a backup Tackle in addition to a role as a Guard, or if he will strictly be at the Guard position this year?
Just logged in to ask a similar question. Andrew, do you see the scholarship numbers working out with 22/23 scholarships this year or do you believe there will be some current commits who end up not signing with Ohio State?
I'm pretty sure they do. I remember Corey Smith losing his and I believe the Duke kicker transfer had one.
Thank you Birm, for everything you contributed to this site. Your Hurry Up was what kept me coming back when I first started following 11W. Good luck to you on your next adventure.
The number of 3 stars in the NFL is a misleading statistic. There are far more 3 stars than 5 stars so of course there will be more in the NFL. A better measure would be what percentage of 3 stars make it in the NFL versus what percentage of 5 stars. I do not have the exact numbers but I believe a higher percentage of 5 stars make it into the NFL.
Edit: Squirrel beat me to it
I think he is saying that their Rankings are slipping, not Myers commitment is slipping.
What position do you feel will be the biggest need in the 2018 class and why?
If my credit score was 830 I would lead with that in every situation; getting a loan, job interview, picking up girls at the bar...
Kevin, I think Tracy was giving the credit scores for each person in the "couple".
While I get the logistics of what you propose, if there are never any crossover games then it wouldn't really feel like you were in the same conference as the teams in the other division. The only chance of seeing a team from the opposing division would be in the conference championship game. It is feasible that you would have teams from the same "conference" meeting up maybe once every 50 years or more.
Having Curtis Samuel as backup RB and at best 3rd string H-Back is questionable. Having Noah Brown as the 4th string X-WR is downright bold.
Curt, do you have a ranking, or ordered list of sorts, based on which of the above names are most likely to end up with the Buckeyes?
I can see the love/hate relationship already myself. Good for you, forging your own path.
2014 OSU Pharm grad here. Did you follow in your parents' footsteps by chance?
Our pets heads are falling off!
Evan Turner's opinions on WR development do not interest me ;)
Thanks Joe! If even two of those names can really rise up and be elite then the Buckeyes should be in great shape next season!
Curt, what incoming freshmen, or soon-to-be redshirt freshmen, should we be getting excited about that could make a big impact next year?
I like the sound of that, thanks Curt!
Curt, how do you see Snyder stacking up against Gwiazdowski after watching him against Coon? He didn't breeze through Coon like he has so many others but I think facing an extremely skilled giant of a man will only further his development as a dominant force.
Even if you don't get the time to write a summary article, your efforts in covering wrestling are greatly appreciated!
Curt, are there any plans to write an article summarizing all the duals, possibly highlighting some of the bigger matches?
