Only thing that matters:  Buckeyes sitting at #5 with 7 commits.  1 (5*) 6 (4*) with an average player ranking of 97.52 and 178.86 points overall. 

Comment 15 Apr 2017

I'm not falling into that trap again.  I figured this past season we would see an improvement with all we brought back and "getting rid of the bad" as Thad said... but nope.  Got even worse.  And I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel anytime soon.  Not really sold on any of these players we have coming in over the next couple of years.

Not every year but the ones they do -- are like Carman tops at their position and 5*.  We haven't landed a T like that under Meyer.  Cam Robinson #1 OT, #4 overall.    Williams, #2 OT, #17 overall and would've likely started at LT for them if Robinson wasn't still there.  Carman is on their level talent wise (#1 OT, #7 overall).  I thought perhaps Myers was until he got exposed in pass blocking but from all indications Carman is the real deal.  He can def come in and start right away esp if he's an early enrollee.  LT will be vacant with a bunch of unprovens or ones Meyer had repeatedly said need to get better.  I suppose we need to land him first then we shall see.

Comment 03 Apr 2017

Well if you look at recent years of the top tackles in recruiting they've come in and started day 1 at LT.  Clemsons done it (Hyatt).  Bamas done it twice now in the last  3 seasons (Robinson, Williams -RT tho)  Florida has etc etc and Carman has been called one of the most dominant and fundamentally sound LT to come through in recent years.  Not a stretch at all.

To be fair, Hoke has won 11 games once in his 4 years (not sure if Hairball can repeat that) and beat tOSU once, not sure Hairball will do that and Hokes 3 losses to tOSU combined came by a less margin than Hairballs 1st game against tOSU alone.  

Comment 22 Mar 2017

I'd throw Fick in over Ash.  Fickell had been around the program forever as a player and coach and did an alright job coaching that one season despite all of the outside noise and best players being suspended.  Basically coached a team full of true freshman and 1st year starters to a decent record given the situation.  I mean, 6 of the 7 losses were by a TD or less.  You add any of the tat 5 to that team for the whole year and a play here or there, the Bucks could've been an 11 win team.  But that could've meant no Urban.

Comment 22 Mar 2017

Are we talking now, if Urban were to retire suddenly or 5-8 years down the road?  If the latter, then def none.  Even if it's in a couple of years.  Dino is 61, Riley is 63, Chryst 52 in Nov.  So a few years down the road they'll all likely be retired or way too old to handle coaching duties at tOSU and just don't see Chryst on that level.  And Hairball?  Lolz, I rather not have someone who embarrasses the University and me as a fan everyday with all of his antics.  His desperation is not a good fit for an established program.  He's ideal for the irrelevant like UM or Purdue etc. 

Comment 19 Mar 2017

Sucks for Nova, Wisky, even though they hit a rough patch during the year was far better than an 8 seed.  I don't know how the hell Minny got a 5.  Was a no brainer in picking that 12 over 5 for me.  Probably should've been Wisky or UM in their place, with the other being the 7 and Minny being an 8.

Comment 16 Mar 2017

Buckeyes although 17-15 were a few plays and failures to close out games away from being a tourney team this year. 

Should have never loss to an 8-20 Florida Atlantic team.

Could have easily won that game @UVA but choked down the stretch and lost by 2.

Lost to Purdue by 1. 

Lost to NW by 2.

And shouldn't have lost by 1 to Neb.  

Win those 3 B1G games that embarrassing loss to Rutgers wouldn't have happened and it would've given the Bucks 8 wins vs tourney teams.  Probably would've been a 7-8 seed, maybe.

Danny D has the Wolverines winning it all, hopefully only because his son is there.
