Never know what might happen, Thad could turn things around and coach for 3-4 more years. Maybe Archie has some incredible love for OSU and would still want the job after Matta. Not saying it's likely, but could happen.
Don't like the Merkle at all. Just doesn't seem or feel right to award a guy a takedown when he doesn't seem to be in any more control than the other wrestler.
Really bummed this match isn't on BTN. With this being #4 vs #5 it shows how far wrestling still has to go.
Am I reading it right that Robinson wanted to commit but the staff said no?
Any word on why Bo didn't wrestle?
I think OSU will wait until the vote on a 10th assistant passes before announcing Wilson formally; or wait until someone else on staff leaves.
Edit: Island beat me to it, well said
I was wondering if that was the same Najee Murray that used to play for OSU.
What do you mean?
Congrats to Joker! I was wondering if he might be in line for a promotion at OSU but I really can't blame him for jumping at this opportunity.
A midnight toker?
I saw that too, seems even more pathetic considering it is coming from a staff writer.
Curt, do I need to temper my excitement about Moore's future? After watching him battle with Cox tonight I'm sold on him being a future NCAA championship contender.
Who do you think is in the 2-deep at MLB next year? I ask because the staff doesn't seem very interested in any MLB recruits outside of Hines. Do you believe there is a current LB on the team that the staff sees as a MLB besides Connor; or do you think the staff is transitioning away from the traditional MLB?
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".
