I agree on the first portion of your post that the B1G should not claim players who never played in the conference, but I have no problem with the BTN airing Nebraska games from their days prior to coming to the B1G. In fact, I'd be disappointed if Nebraska's history weren't celebrated by the conference. Fans of other teams in the conference may not be very aware of their program's history and I think it's interesting to learn more about our opponents - past and present. Plus, how would you feel to be a Husker fan and only get to watch/relive the "glories" of the past few seasons on your conference's television network? lol
Cool link - interesting story. But who downvoted this? +1 to counter
Haha nice! You had nine of the thirteen I predicted. I like it!
IF I somehow got all my predictions correct the class would wind up at 23. I actually think it's possible that if they get someone like Hansard or Solomon to go with Cage that they make stick with one more DT and not bring in a guy like Jeter. Also, it may be necessary to stick with only one running back in Sibley and a talent like Sermon might be left out. You could also make a case that Shaun Wade may not be solid in this class and that is why they continue offering more and more top flight defensive backs. But it'd be hard to pass up a guy like Holmes just because you have two of the other rated CBs in the class. It will be an interesting year for recruiting for sure.
Oh, I'm well aware!
I'm taking a way too early guess at the 2017 class and say we get the following:
WR: Trevon Grimes, Jaylen Harris, and Donovan Peoples-Jones (with Harris being the next commit).
RB: Trey Sermon
TE: Matt Dotson
OG: Cody Bowes
DE: Corey Malone-Hatcher
DT: Fred Hansard, Donovan Jeter
LB: Santino Marchiol
DB: Lamont Wade, Jaylen Kelly-Powell, and Jeffrey Okudah (with JKP committing next).
DB is going to be crazy this year! Already have Wade, Williamson, Pryor, and White in the mix with the above guys as well as Darnay Holmes, Amir Riep, Ambry Thomas, and others like Richard Lecounte out there.. Wow.
I was just thinking that. Who would Urban invite?
Edit- The former football stars are obvious, I was just thinking in terms of celebrities and other sports stars.
Former Buckeye, Jayme Thompson, signed with Indiana today. In case anybody is interested.
This class just got Fuller!
Middle hat blues..
Center hat... :(
Hahahahahaha! I was laughing so hard at my desk I went into a coughing fit (been fighting a cold lately). My co-worker in the office next to mine asked if I was alright and I just choked out "Yep, it's just Mecole Hardman." She simply replied "Oh" and went back to her business. I love this site.
I'm gonna miss ALL of those guys.. :(
Don't know why you had to respond to him like that, but Haskins was absolutely on the radar long before Wallace. There are a ton of articles on here (such as this one - http://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football-recruiting/2014/10/42241/-haskins-guarantano-quarterback-recruiting-2016) - that indicate such. From what I had read on this wonderful site, I gathered that our perceived lack of interest in Haskins at the time had more to do with not feeling that we were in good position to land him than it did not wanting him as our future quarterback. I feel very confident that had the staff felt better about their chances at the time, Wallace would have never become a top-tier choice. And really, until Guarantano started trending away from the Buckeyes, Wallace was hardly a blip on the radar.
Well clearly I was too lazy to actually read the article. +1 to you for pointing that out to everyone else.
My take is that he is thinking Grimes is a 2016 prospect and predicting he will be a Buckeye on national signing day.
They also did it with the Pembroke Pines kids just to make sure they got Devin Bush, Jr. Crazy..
If someone tried hard enough they could maka good joke using your name, too. At least I'd imagine..
