I wish Matta had coached more players that outplayed their recruiting rankings.
The APR really isn't a very good measure of grades. It doesn't matter whether you have 4.0 GPA athletes or 2.3 GPA athletes. As long as the Athlete stays eligible (2.0 and above I assume) and graduates they contribute to the APR score total.
I'm just saying he deserves a fair shot. Braxton shouldn't get the automatic over Kenny. That's all
This may be an unpopular opinion but I say give Kenny a fair shot at being the starting quarterback. He has played well and is the better passer in my opinion. Maybe he'll even get drafted. Braxton Miller has many more years left.
Rivals or 247 are tied for me
Scout's site reminds me of Yahoo Geocities of the 1990s
ESPN hates us and overrates TTUN's recruiting every year.
the guy is a complete tool.
I think he'll be good for us next year. But I don't see him being more than a bench warmer in the NBA.
Disclaimer: I generally have little faith in white basketball players when it comes to the NBA.
This guy is a stud. I hope we get him.
I'm personally sick of all these people that think we can't be disappointed when we get a 2-star recruit because "the coaches know what they're doing". These are probably the same people that get super excited when a highly regarded recruit chooses us. Why the excitement? because he has 5 stars.
Stop the double standard. It's annoying.
The job of fans in this rivalry is to wish their rival the absolute worst.
It's a great rivalry because the other team has normally been persistently good against the wishes of opposing fans.
summary: I wish them the worst. but it will only be a great rivalry if, despite all my wishes, they continue to be good.
dude, I'm kinda sick of these conversations.
It boils down to this. They're our biggest rival and we HATE them. So we wish them the absolute freaking worst and WANT to beat the hell out of them.
But in order for this to continue as college football's biggest rivalry and for the intensity of the hatred to continue they have to have success, be good/great, and be nationally relevent.
well, if you're a parent and you give your kids non-traditional names you run the risk of people mispronoucing their names.
Really? Parrker with 2 Rs? Ridiculous name.
This thread has reaffirmed my hatred of all this conference realignment crap. There is no way the Ohio State - Michigan rivalry would be half as good or intense if Ann Arbor wasn't just a ~ 3 hour drive away from Columbus.
Now about this West Virginia - Texas rivalry that is about to form. Or Boise State - Rutgers. Sigh.....
USC does have their share of WTF type of loses though.
I'm predicting that MSU's offense is going to be absolute junk this year. lol
You're such a irrational fan. A rational Buckeye fans should look at the college football landscape in terms of what will benefit the Buckeyes & help our national prestige & chance of winning the national championship.
What will we get out of a Michigan blowout to Alabama? We get to crash talk them & lol at them. They got nothing to say to you b/c they're ashamed & that makes you happy.
What if Michigan pulls out a miracle and beats Alabama? The ENTIRE B10 conference (OUR conference) gets a shot in the arms. Beating Michigan means so much more. A win or loss against them is a lot more respected which equates to higher pre-season 2013 rankings which will help our chance of winning a MNC. Less of that OSU beats up on a weak B10 bullshit that hurts us during bowl season. I can go on & on about how it'll benefit us.
But go ahead, CHEER AGAINST MICHIGAN in their game vs. Alabama & other OOC games. I have my priorities straight & I CHEER FOR THE OHIO STATE & everything that benefits us.
guys, watch his highlight tape. If he runs a sub 4.4 he's not showing it.
What's so great about Derrick Green? I've seen better highlight types out of 3 stars than Derrick Green's. He's Bri'onte Dunn without the speed.
