Those highlights were from his Pride days.  Pride had different rules than the UFC.  Since UFC, in order to survive, changed its rules for boxing commission governance, those types of strikes were never allowed.  Pride also allowed soccer kicks to a downed opponent, which were absolutely brutal.  Shogun Rua wrecked people doing it. 

Pride also encouraged its fighters to use as many 'supplements' as they wanted... no steroid testing at all.  Mark Coleman, Mark Kerr, and now possibly Kevin have suffered for the abuse they put their bodies through in that time period. 

And the shame is, as with most sports, the pioneers were the ones who never got paid appropriately.  He would have been a huge star in today's MMA world.

Bell isn't going anywhere.  And they have much more pressing needs on the other side of the ball then to draft a RB in round 1.

You are correct, but no one that isn't directly patched in really knows what happened.  He isn't coming here.  There may have been red flags and I wouldn't blame them for backing off.  Or he told them first about his interest elsewhere and they ceased recruiting him.  It really is all conjecture.  We don't need to spin our wheels with each other - maybe the truth will come out.  I expressed an opinion that you seemed to take an issue with.  In the end its all good and life goes on.  Go Bucks!

So the past always dictates the present under your theory that I am incorrect.  Well, I was merely stating my opinion and it hasn't been disproven at this point, and others here seem to agree with me.  Every situation is different in recruiting.  And it really doesn't matter in the end anyways because he won't be here.  I just personally think it a save face type of statement since it was assumed he was coming here for a long time.

I miss seeing the Burrito Bago pull up to a late night party on the south campus in the 90s.  Wonder if that is still up and running?

A top 5 list where few list Marcus Marek...the all time leading tackler.  Just says how much talent has come through here.

Marcus Marek's Ohio State career per 10tv.com:

No one has brought down more ball-carriers as a Buckeye then Marcus Marek. A four-year starter from 1979 through 82, Marek made 572 career tackles, edging Tom Cousineau for the all-time lead.

From Vienna, Ohio, in Trumbull County, he was the first player in OSU history to lead the team in tackles three straight seasons, earning All-Big Ten honors each time.

[Marek was the first Buckeye to lead the team in tackles for three consecutive seasons.]Marek was the first Buckeye to lead the team in tackles for three consecutive seasons.

In 1982, Marek was named All-American. His 178 tackles that year still represents the third highest single-season total in school annals. On senior day against Michigan, Marek made a career-high 21 tackles, and intercepted a pass to set up the Buckeyes final points in a 24-14 win.

Marek ranks first in all-time assisted tackles at Ohio State with 316, and his 256 solo stops place him third in that category.

Ben just signed a 5 year extension before the year.  Not going to happen unless he is available in the 6th or 7th round.  Too many holes to plug than to waste another draft pick on someone to back Ben up for 4 years and then need to re-sign before seeing the field.

Arizona would be the perfect landing spot, IMO.  Learn from BA, sit behind Carson for 2 years.  Offense tailor made to his abilities.
