I'm simple. Probably comes from being a soldier for 6 years. I'm a young father who works hard for my child. I love the buckeyes. I have since the days of eddie which was before my teens. I work hard and play even harder.

Samuel reminds me of a young C.J. Spiller type back. I will be real interested to see what type of roll he has once fall comes around and Smith is back. I want to see if he can add some more bulk as well in the summer. With Dunn and Ball surging as well it will interesting to see how it shakes out when we take the field at Navy. Go Bucks

I have always been a big Rod Smith fan and yah to say the least I feel the same way. Nothing worse than wasted talent. I sure hope he gets it together for his sake.

Comment 08 Apr 2014

Agreed it will start to slear up what its going to look like come fall. If he was there what was he doing?

I take the wait and see approach as well. I do the same thing with recruiting. There are so many things that go into player development and coaching that I never assume that things will always work. I have seen other people do that on this board since I joined only to get let down. Especially as it relates to our defense. Expectation and reality almost never are the same or at least thats what a drill sergeant told me a long time ago lol. Go Bucks

Since it doesn't look like Patrick is going to be a real option until we can him back up here for a visit I would really like this kid to be our power back for the class. He has great feet, good vision, good pad level at contact, and really put the effort into getting extra yards.

Comment 28 Mar 2014

I really like this kids skill set. His arm is real nice. I really like how he continues to look down the field even when scrambling. If I had to choose between him and Wimbush as far as a qb I take him to be honest. One Wimbush has some funky mechanics. Two Wimbush is not as athletic as this kid. Three this kids arm and ability to make a play is better. Four this kid has more starting experience than Wimbush and he is a class below Wimbush. If we have to pass on Wimbush this year to get a better chance of stealing this kid out of PA in the next class I'm all for it.

Stan Drayton's job is an awesome job to have. The hardest part is finding the consistency he needs in games. He will never have a shortage of talent back there though. I'm still hoping Smith brings it like I thought he would all these years. I won't be mad if its Elliot, Dunn, or Ball though. Go Bucks

Comment 26 Mar 2014

To your last point about Urban bringing in Ash. I think you're right in saying Fickell was basically told get on board. Im glad to hear about Dunn and Rod too. Everybody assumed it was all Elliot, but with them pushing it can only make all of them better.

Comment 26 Mar 2014

Im very interested if the change In scheme helps our back 7 on defense. I love competition so I love the position battles at tailback and wide receiver.  Im disappointed in Marshall getting injured.

Read the book when I was oversea's in Iraq on my one and only tour. Very good book that will definitley humble you. Awesome that Meyer got him in there to speak to the team.

Comment 21 Mar 2014

Yah I was sad to hear about Jalin too. I have high hopes for him this year because of his running style. hopefully an injury wont put him back like it did last year.

Comment 21 Mar 2014

In full agreeance with you hove.

Comment 21 Mar 2014

You and me both. Rod has been a player I have followed since he got here because from Indiana and actually got to see him play once in high school. Each year I wait for a breakout and then nothing. Its his last go around so i'm keeping my fingers crossed. Its encouragiong to hear things about Dunn and Elliot to though.

Comment 06 Mar 2014

I haven't seen a posted time from him at any camps, but judging from film he looks like a 4.6 to 4.5 type guy.

Comment 06 Mar 2014

He would be the guy I like as our bruiser type back for the class if we can't get Patrick.
