In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something else. Lee Iacocca
Thank you Zeke. This made me beam with pride. Zeke just sold OSU to all recruits. Go Bucks!!
It's difficult to get that stripe off, just ask Eli and his mom Annie.
Apple, the 11th-ranked prospect in the nation in his class according to ESPN, enrolled at Ohio State in January 2013. Coach Urban Meyer didn’t remove the black stripe from Apple’s helmet until 15 months later during a Student Appreciation Day practice in April 2014. Most freshmen lose the black stripe and become official Buckeyes in the fall of their freshman year.
Apple’s mom Annie Apple celebrated the moment on Twitter, writing, “Heard Eli finally got that black stripe off. We had kinda expected him to get married with it on. But it’s great to be part of the team.”
I was watching the highlights of Cooper. It thought it was cute how they circled him so that we would know where Cooper was lining up. It was definitely hard finding the 6'1", 350 pound Cooper.
In that situation, I would not redshirt Martell. I cannot at this time seeing him moving the team better than JT or Joe. Although, I really would like to think that Urban would play the QB that best moves the team. I would like to consider that all jobs are open and the best person gets to play. It is going to be fun to see how all this pans out this fall.
Martell is a great talent and I can't wait to see him on the field, but I believe he will need the red shirt year. With JT, Joe Burrow, and Dwayne Haskins, I just feel it would be burning a year when he needs the growth of playing at the college level. I would also like to see Emory Jones take a red shirt when he enrolls next year. It is difficult to take the reins without first getting many reps in practice.
Keep that Erasmus Hall pipeline open. Matthew looks great.
The one player I am most excited about is Haskell Garrett. He has the size but I am sure Mickey will put more muscle on him. I watched Haskell's tape a couple of times and he impresses with his speed. I see immediate playing time for him. Who couldn't pull for a player who wanted to play for OSU without even visiting.
Wyatt, how does it feel to be part of one of greatest recruiting classes at OSU and what do you think this will mean for your career at OSU?
This kid is very football smart. He has a nose for the ball like Malik. The way he commands the field reminds me of one that got away, and that is Bubba Bolden.
I had a friend, who is a Buckeye fan, tell me that Peppers would go higher than Malik. I told him that OSU would have 3 players taken before Peppers gets called. I was glad to see the list put out by Matt Miller which seems very reasonable and which also supported my claim.
I do hate it for Jake Butt though. An injury drops you like that in the draft is really difficult. I say this as a Pick Town fan and not a TTUN fan. I am still amazed at how many quality athletes come out of Pick Town.
I think Demario is the likely candidate for the "Curtis Samuel" position.
Other schools tried to recruit him. Yeah! "Dream On".
Josh, welcome to "Paradise City".
With the caliber of athletes that OSU is getting, a red shirt should be very rare.
Are you saying that he has already applied to OSU and was accepted? If so, this is great news. Life is so full of twists and turns Torrance and you will grow and learn with each one. I hope to see you on the field this year. We need you.
We love you Jeffrey and can't wait to see you in S & G.
Tom Herman on criticism of Tim Beck: "Really surprised. It's well known Tim Beck didn't call plays at Ohio St. Negativity was misplaced."— Max Olson (@max_olson) January 5, 2017
This was exactly my thought. How would Wilson respond if he thought Kelly would second guess him. I also think that Wilson is hungrier than Kelly and would be putting in more time to get better so that he can get a head coaching job again. I am pleased with all the hires to this point. All coaches need to go to work. There is talent out the wazoo at OSU and there can be no excuses.
Nope. I don't think so!!
