I don't know anything about him or his ranking, but the majority of highly ranked guys initially are either physical freaks or participate in the camp circuit. The recruiting services can't possibly see every HS player. When guys who are a bit off the radar, either because they don't stand out physically, don't camp, or don't play at the highest level of HS football, commit to a big name school, then the services tend to take a little more notice and reevaluate on the fly. That's why a lot of people will tell you, look at the offer list, not the star rankings.

Those #s wouldn't fit on today's uniforms because the shoulder pads are so small.

The second part is what I thought of when reading what types of receivers were being targeted. The H can be a significant weapon due to mismatches, but it feels like too much of the offense has been forced through that role. Not a shot at Samuel because he's been the best at it in Columbus, but Warinner/Beck seemed to be enamored with it. I'd rather have 3 true WRs on the field, along with a mobile QB and a RB.

Steroids were being used well before 94-95. And I understand the look of his arc, but a guy like Randy Johnson, without doing any research, has a similar arc no? He was terrible early in his career, and couldn't get the ball over the plate. Then, he gained control and turned into one of the most dominant pitchers of my lifetime.

Slippery when Wet is one of my favorite albums of all time. One of my proudest days as a parent was when my then 4yr old asked to hear Living on a Prayer on the way to daycare instead of Let it Go (Frozen)...and sang along to the whole thing!.  She'd walk around daycare, singing it also, and the teachers asked us when we picked her up one day, is she singing Bon Jovi?  They loved it.

Year 2 of Schiano. I'm not worried. The true freshman are uber-talented, and everyone else is in their 2nd year with Schiano.  They'll be fine. Maybe not to '16 standards right away, but the talent and coaching is there.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together. From everything I've read, Davis is the more "ready now" recruit when comparing him and Myers. I think Myers will start as a RS Freshman, but not this year-he's got to learn to pass block first, especially in Wilsons offense.

After 5mins of research, I could only find the testimony he gave to congress, and the story about him claiming the Red Sox suggested he use something late in his career for this shoulder, but nothing about actual suspicion of him using.

Baseball HOF voters/writers as many have said are a joke. If anyone should've been unanimous, it was Griffey Jr, and even he wasn't simply because some of them feel like no one deserves to be a unanimous selection. 

No idea if Schilling should be in. He was a stud in the playoffs it seemed like every year for several in a row with different teams.

I think Wilson is going to be a BIG reason for a lot of players to break out. We've been on the same page a lot, and I'm not sure how you feel about the 2017 season, but I'm already buying in...big time. I just think it's brewing to be a perfect storm in Columbus.

-Urban was embarrassed for the first time in his career on the field

-The staff changes that were probably already in the works, were necessitated even more

-While the early entrants hurt, the amount of experience that is returning in '17 is still significantly more than '16 (not talking stats, just on field experience)

-Schiano is still there-year 2 under him, even with the losses in the secondary, should be fun to watch. Talent isn't an issue, just experience. Talent usually wins out.

They'll still be a tough out with Mayfield at QB.  I still like the Home Team's chances of winning by 30+ though....in every game. 

Comment 17 Jan 2017

SEC dominance was built on the DL. Urban knew that when he came to Columbus, and made it priority. LJ has more often then not preferred to have a 10 man rotation on the DL throughout his career. The benefits far outway any perceived lack of performance when it comes to the DL. When you can roll a fresh 4 out in the 4th qtr of a close game against an OL that's been playing all game...curtains.
