Most 5*s in a year, 247 comp team rankings

2002 - FSU with six; 2003 - UF, six; 2004 - USC, six; 2006 - USC, six; 2007 - USC, six; 2013 - Bama, six; 2014 - Bama, six. 

OSU has six now.  What's crazy is that it seems OSU could realistically add 3-4 more.  Even two would have to make it the most highly regarded recruiting class of recent times at the minimum.  Plus, we have the coaches to actually develop them.  

Enjoy it fellas, this is a truly golden era of Buckeye football.

What's crazy is that it seems OSU could realistically add 3-4 more, even two would make it the most highly regarded recruiting class of the modern era.  Plus, we have the coaches to actually develop them.

Pop quiz: what do these guys all have in common?  Wes Welker, Steve Smith, Henry Ellard, Antonio Brown, Desean Jackson, T.Y. Hilton, Golden Tate, Julian Edelman, and Odell Beckham.

If you said they were all NFL Pro Bowlers, you'd be right.  If you also said they were all less than 6 feet tall, you'd also be right ;)

Well, color me very impressed.  Can't trust HS coaches 40-times and he plays in a mid-sized division (4A-D2 - http://www.texasfootball.com/playoff-brackets/#1446829493489-0c2adf0b-dc12), so hard to tell exactly how fast he is.  Regardless, even if he's a step or two slower than McCoy, I'll be excited to have him.

Looks like there Urban and staff have been high on him for some time: http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/ohio-state-football/2015/06/54840/hearing-chris-evans-could-flip-to-urban-soon

Agreed that Waters is a douche, but I'm not going to punish myself by not enjoying some of my favorite music of all time ;)

Astronomy Domine is outstanding for its time (maybe the only Syd track I actually love) but I'm mostly and eternally thankful to Syd for giving birth to Pink Floyd, the later version of which immeasurably shaped and expanded my musical and creative life.  

Dark Side, Wish You Were Here and The Wall are all masterpieces beginning to end, and some of the other stuff ain't too shabby neither ;)

C'mon, it's obviously not the hydroplaning that would be the reason.  He drove with a suspended license, and that's a crime.  Not a moving violation, but an actual crime.  Whether he deserves to be suspended for it is another question, but let's not play games with the reason.

Perhaps overall, Clemson is not far behind, but when it comes to business schools (Gary said he wants to study business), I believe OSU is considerably better regarded.

"time to fire Urban"??  Who said that?  Links please, or you made it up :)

Umm, were you watching the same game I was last week?  That O'Connor kid looks like he's ready to step right in with very little drop-off.  They have a very good history of developing QBs.
