Thanks for clarifying.
Does the fact that he sat out this past season and wasn't a student at OSU mean that this regulation still applies to him? Total bullshit if so. Let the boys play.
A sobering reminder of the way all of these recruiting "booms" have the potential to go. I hope this kid is a superstar in Cincy and I hope he was able to learn the necessary lessons at OSU to make that leap.
Feel free to use it in my honor
This feels like one we are never out of and eventually come up just short. I think I'll go to bed.
How is that on Kam..?
At least Lyle is so bad, we will get to watch him be bad for 4 years instead of just 1 or 2.
This is awesome. A few days removed from a 31-0 embarrassment and urban backing up his claim of "this won't happen again." Welcome to Columbus, Kevin Wilson and Ryan Day, where the expectations are high but the rewards are higher.
I know this is totally off topic of this article, but why are so many sites reporting that Kevin Wilson is our next OC and there is no word from the folks here at 11W yet?
This dude is a beast. I'd love to have him on my NFL team.
This one is going to be tough to get over. You never see a loss like that coming on the national stage. After the Michigan game, I said to myself that anything else this season would be extra. I knew it wasn't true, but I said it. I wanted to believe that watching this young team grow up that Saturday afternoon was good enough. Sometime in the past few weeks while waiting in anticipation for last nights game I had forgotten that I had even said it at all. After a night to sleep on it, I realize I will be struggling to swallow this one for a while. But I also got to think back to the special times we had with this team this year. Overtime in Madison, watching the blowout in Norman at a packed Buckeye fan bar in Charlotte, NC, and nearly tackling my dad when Curtis Samuel crossed the goal line against Michigan with a house full of friends and family. I got to check two new stadiums off the bucket list after seeing the Buckeyes in road contests at PSU and at Maryland (one was far more impressive than the other). Despite the ending it was one of my favorite seasons ever as a Buckeye fan, and I can't wait to try and top it next year.

I'm sitting in my office trying to avoid tears. This man shared a love of life and sports with the world that we are lucky to have witnessed. RIP.
Is this a shirt? Where can it be acquired?
That's absolutely fine. But we have a plenty talented and successful QB as well and I am backing him as long as he plays at OSU. I'm in no way insinuating that Barrett is a better QB than Watson, but I wouldn't trade him for anyone heading into the playoffs. He's our guy.
I hope everyone saying they'd trade JT for Watson gets to eat their own shit on NYE. I mean that in the nicest way possible.
Tigers love pepper. They hate Cinnamon.
Tuf Borland is a terrific name for a MLB
I'll never forget how we couldn't seem to stop him back in 09 when USC came to the shoe. The sports world has lost too many of its younger members this year. RIP, man.
I would love to see Saban and Alabama deliver a housing of Michigan. Michigan doesn't have the horses to compete with Alabama and I'd love to watch them go from the joy of making it to the playoff to the devastation of running into Bama. Plus, when they complain about having to go through Alabama, we can shrug and show no empathy.
i dont understand some of the perceived backlash on this thread. This is business news that pertains heavily to the sports world. While some point to politics, the fact is that ESPN (as a tv network) has been trending down for a while.
They aren't the best network for live sports and you can more often find the NFL, the MLB, and NBA on tv elsewhere while any news/highlights/opinions can now be obtained via hundreds of dedicated websites. They don't have a hold on the sports world like they used to and now the numbers are starting to back it up.
I know the political topics on ESPN might be the breaking point for some people, but they're failing as a business because of so much more.
The article is a good read anyway but this comment is hilarious
Do you mean PJ Fleck of western Michigan or Dana Holgorsen of West Virginia?
John learned from his brother Jimbo how dangerous punting is at the end of the game
