If I remember right, we're looking at Jones at the G position... but given he's the 3rd ranked DT comp.  I would rather see him play there if we were to land him down the road.

Comment 01 Feb 2017

Well when we miss out on the 5* DTs that's when we land the lower ranked 3/4* guys so I don't see a need to change the recruiting approach.

Comment 01 Feb 2017

I don't want to get my hopes up with Marvin Wilson but man what a get he would be.  If we land him we'll finally be stockpiling stud DTs with the '17 class and what looks like a good haul in next years class too.

A combination of a lot of things but what it boils down to is the players we have just aren't that talented and the coaching staff we have struggle to develop players, so when you have both of those factors going at each other it leads to this kind of mess and it's not gonna get any better over the next few years either, unless new blood and talent is brought in.  Maybe these recruits will surprise me but I'm getting the same reservations over them as I had with the previous 3-4 recruiting classes we've landed and my guy feelings have turned out right for the most part for those.  We shall see I suppose but man, it's hard and not much fun watching this BBall program over the last few years.

Ha not even watching, I don't even wanna hear what my buddies will have to say after this (iowa fans).  I looked at boxscore and even saw Iowa's best player wasn't play (Jok) and we're still getting our asses kicked.  We need a new coach and players.  Start over, get some positive momentum for the program otherwise the near future isn't going to be any better.

Hmm not sure how I feel about this.  He already had a chance to come and fell for the brick philosophy.  Given his size, I could see him move out and be like an Aaron Hernandez type TE/flex/Hback type player that Urban utilized very well at UF (obviously minus the off field stuff).  

Comment 27 Jan 2017

He was in over his head co-OCing for us.  He's much better suited coaching the OL position. 

Comment 22 Jan 2017

I don't worry much about the Cavs in the regular season.  Playoffs are a different animal where everyone picks it up both offensively and especially defensively.  They'll run through the East again and get a good series with whoever comes out of the West. 

Comment 22 Jan 2017

That and their WR core is pretty loaded and had the best WR and perhaps TE (at least from a mismatch standpoint) in college football this year.  That'll also help.

Comment 22 Jan 2017

Their OL was pretty good too.  Only gave up 20 sacks in 15 games, The Buckeyes gave up 28 in 13 games.

Comment 22 Jan 2017

Mitch Hyatt at T for Clemson, was the top rated T (depending on where you looked) coming out of HS and pretty sure he's started every or most of his games there in 2 years. 

FSU -- T Roderick Johnson only because I remember tOSU were in on him.

Those are the only 2 I know haha.  But both really good LTs and both are players I wanted tOSU to land.  Johnson we had a much better shot at but it didn't work out.

Comment 22 Jan 2017

I'm not sure they'll ever be in the decline when it comes to recruiting.  I feel like the SECs problem the last few years have been lack of quality QBs in that conference but there's a bunch of young studs in that conference now.

SEC recruiting rankings this year (not all the teams):



7-LSU (they'll be top 5 most likely come NSD)


9-Texas AM


15-South Carolina


24-Florida (only have 15 commits at the moment and will likely move up into the top 15ish range by NSD)

28-Miss St

Last year they finished with the #1, 3, 5, 8, 9, 12, 14, 18, 23, 24 ranked recruiting classes. 

So overall at the moment as a conference they're down a bit from last years classes but there's still plenty of time to go before NSD.  Could you imagine how loaded the B1G would be if the 6th/7th best teams in the conference still recruited within the top 20 every year?! 

Comment 21 Jan 2017

Iowa loses the best players in the state all the time.  Whether it be football or basketball players.  I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't end up and UM, seems like there's always an Iowa WR on their team... (Arrington and Darboh) okay that's only two but recent!

Comment 18 Jan 2017

I think JB will be a beast as a QB.  He looks legit in the same sample size I've seen.  He very well may turn into another Ohio QB who goes on to have a great college career that's not for the Buckeyes and later gets drafted into the NFL and sticks around.  Most recently - Cook and now the top 2 QBs most likely drafted in the '17 draft (Kizer and Trubisky).  It can be a blessing and a curse to have a loaded position group, especially at a position (QB) where only 1 guy can play.  It'll suck to lose him but in a couple years we'll have Martell, Haskins and Jones all competing for the job and all more than capable. 

Martell - one of the most decorated HS QBs ever.

Haskins - A guy Meyer had high praise for, saying something along the lines he's never seen a HS QB as good as him.

Jones - I've read a bunch of scout/recruiting experts say he's one of the best QB prospects to come along in a long time.

So with or without Burrow, the cupboard is still stacked.
