In regard to number 4 on your list, are you actually assuming there will be five rushers over 250 yards?  Or do you not think Braxton will go over this mark?

Personally I think there will be four.  Braxton, EZE, Wilson, and Samuel.  I don't think Dunn quite hits that mark.  And then there's Rod Smith..  I'd love to see all six top 250. 

Comment 29 Jul 2014

I agree entirely!  I like Jones and Barrett as well!

Comment 29 Jul 2014

Am I the only one who looks at our potential QB situation and gets nervous/giddy all at the same time?  In theory, we could have Collier as a Senior, Burrow/Gibson as a Junior, Haskins (or Pass or Henry) as a Sophomore, and Clark as a Senior.  Collier is becoming a fan favorite because of all the work he puts in and his attitude, I think Burrow is a little unpolished but has the tools to be developed into something special, Gibson fits the mold of recent TOSU qbs, I feel like Haskins could be the real deal - a great athlete and a really good passer, and I'm pretty sure everyone agrees Clark is a freak who could start for a lot of colleges right now.

This makes me extremely excited, obviously, but nervous as well because I want them ALL to get behind center and show what they can do.  I mean, what if Burrow turns out to be a stud and Haskins and Clark get stuck behind him on the depth chart for a couple years?  I know this is a ridiculous post, but I want to see all these kids succeed! 

I don't remember ever having this problem when Tressel was here. It's obvious that Meyer just needs to recruit less successfully.

DJ, did you mean to say "As a man, there isn't enough money in the world to erectify this..."? 

Comment 24 Jul 2014

It's a pretty good deli (based out of Oxford, MS....) that I'm pretty sure has made it's way throughout Ohio.  I know there is at least one in Dublin and several in Cincinnati.  Not sure about the rest of the state, but they have really good tea and are known for their spuds.  Try it sometime!

Comment 24 Jul 2014

Oh, and more importantly...  No purchase necessary!

Comment 24 Jul 2014

Right, wasn't his decision to take a 5th year at Fort Union Military Academy in part because he wanted to boost his stock?  That was my understanding.  Not saying he was ever undersized, he did look like a body-builder when he got to Columbus and his son is certainly not undersized either (6-2, 226).  But my understanding is that his game, even for a high school student, could use some polishing before getting the big D-I offers.  My point was just that Eddie wasn't dominating high school competition as a sophomore and junior either.  If I'm mistaken in my assumption, please let me know.  I'll gladly retract my words if I'm incorrect.

Comment 24 Jul 2014

It seems to me that Eddie was a bit of a late-bloomer.  Could be the same for his son?  The legacy factor is enough that he oughta be camping at Ohio State at some point so the staff can at least get a better look.  Plus he's another kid at DeMatha HS in Maryland.  That school is sure churning out top prospects these days!  Wouldn't mind one bit if we worked that one as a pipeline school.

Comment 23 Jul 2014

Thanks, Jeremytwoface.  However, this one is, and has been, out of stock for quite some time. 
Also, I can't believe I omitted this tidbit from my original post.  I'm looking for a larger print.  Either a 24x36 or 30x47 (something in that range). 

Comment 23 Jul 2014

I wish I was able to offer up a helmet sticker on this one. 
Good Lord, you'd never believe an M-16 would become so heavy so fast.  Worst 'smoking' ever.. Make me do push-ups all day, but please no more Iron Mans (walking lunges with rifle held over head)!

Comment 23 Jul 2014

I'm betting on (hoping for) Hausmann to be that guy to commit at or shortly after FNL this year.  Or, better yet, one of many "that guy"s.

On another note, I'm very excited for Whitehead to be returning this year.  I was starting to feel like he may be trending away from us, but I think this week may help him forget about recent visits to SEC country/Penn State.

I'm also really excited for Lawrence Cager.  I believe he shines and gets the offer from the coaching staff.  Especially if they have any feeling that Van Jefferson may be leaning elsewhere.

Comment 16 Jul 2014

Just like with the College Football Playoff, I can't read four teams and not immediately envision expansion.  Hailing from Dayton, I obviously agree with the four teams mentioned.  But then I want to see any combination of Ohio U, Toledo, Kent State, Cleveland State, Youngstown State, Akron, Miami (Ohio), Bowling Green, and Wright State included in the fray.  As you mentioned, the Bobcats made the Sweet 16 a couple years ago, Kent St isn't long removed from being a top-flight mid-major, and I'd love to see the Raiders make some noise in this type of tournament. And if, as TENNBUCKEYE19 stated above, Matta and Gene Smith are the obstacle, then I say the other, smaller Ohio teams should kick this thing off on their collective own.  It would still be extremely entertaining and give the Ohio teams a chance to stake their claim to the state, so to speak.

Another thought is that the tournament could work on a revolving regional basis.  The Cincinnati-Dayton corridor could host one year, Columbus the next, Cleveland/Akron/Youngstown the following.  You could even throw in a Bowling Green/Toledo/Findlay region to keep the Northwest part of the state from getting upset.  (Sorry Athens, I don't see this in the cards for you.)

There are certainly a lot of ways this could become a major event in the first couple weeks of December.  Let's get this going Ohio athletic directors!

Comment 14 Jul 2014

Buckeye nation has taken note of how active you are in your recruitment of other top flight players in the class of 2015.  If there is one guy who you think is a 'must get' in the Scarlet and Gray who is not already committed, who would it be?

Comment 13 Jul 2014
I also think it's a strong testament of Bryan Price as the manager of that team. He has done an exceptional job with the team, although i feel that Cingrani and Hoover taking such dramatic steps backward is also a result of his no longer being pitching coach.
Comment 11 Jul 2014

I was wondering if there is any chance Nyheim Hines, Rashad Roundtree, or either of the Florida McFaddens (Kendrell or Tarvarus) end up as part of this class? I really like all these guys but haven't heard much lately. Also, have you heard Urquidez or Simmons connected to the Buckeyes at any point yet?  Is there any interest on either behalf?  Seems like a natural recruiting tool having Green be a teammate at DeMatha Catholic.

In mine and BuckeyeBFD's defense, the entire internet crashed while we were posting.  Hence the double double post.
Prove me a liar.
