Unfortunately I had mine on pre-order a long time ago, or else I would have ordered through the link.  It was a nice surprise to see the reduction in price when the DVDs were released (when I pre-ordered, they were $24 each...amazon is cool enough to always charge the lower amount once the order goes through).

Every fan should check out his podcast that he posted yesterday.  Its a half hour with his brother.  He says nothing but complimentary things about the Packers and said he knew about this a week ago.  The Pack held off on the decision until he returned from the Buckeye Cruise for Cancer so he didn't have to answer tons of questions on the boat.  Its a very interesting half hour as they discuss his future.

The student was a high school track athlete and he won the first heat (barely), but Grant won the final race.   Wilson wasn't even a factor.  His straight line speed is extremely over-hyped.  If WIlson is invited to the combine in 2 years, I would bet he runs the 40 in the 4.5's.  His shuttle and 3 cone drills will probably be fantastic though. 

Comment 19 Feb 2015

He was granted another year.  Not done.

Comment 18 Feb 2015

Don't count out Joel Hale, who has made the switch back to DT.  He's not flashy but he will see time on the field again.

Comment 17 Feb 2015

Obviously the below article is before Curtis Samuel joined the team, but Braxton, Doran, and Devin all run sub 4-4, at least according to OSU.

From http://www.elevenwarriors.com/2013/05/22418/ohio-state-buckeyes-football-40-times-braxton-miller-bradley-roby-ryan-shazier

All-American candidate and cornerback Bradley Roby leads all Buckeyes on the board with a time of 4.26 in the 40. That's blazing, and again, would have been the top time at the 2013 NFL Combine. Quarterback Braxton Miller, second on the list, checks in with a 4.32, with corner Doran Grant matching him. Rounding out the top five are wide receiver Devin Smith at 4.33 and linebacker Ryan Shazier at 4.35.

Don't forget about Heuerman & Perry, both of whom are outstanding human beings.  Jacob Jarvis and Joshua Chambers would place their votes in these categories.

Too many outstanding kids on this team...I seriously couldn't be more proud of all of them and will not choose a favorite.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

Did he go to the Memorial with Stoney and Mewhort?

Comment 09 Feb 2015

I think that is the major hurdle...he doesn't have the mindset to make the change and probably never will if he hasn't tried it yet.

It has little to do with actual athletic ability in my opinion...guys like Brad Smith, Hines Ward, Antwaan Randle-El, Julian Edelman, etc. wouldn't have sniffed a roster spot in the NFL at QB, so they did what they had to do to make a career.  TP still believes he will be a QB in the league and has gotten some opportunities to do so.

Comment 09 Feb 2015

The Ginn Academy is separate from Glenville.   Enrollees at the Ginn Academy can come from anywhere in Cleveland.  The enrollees at the Ginn Academy can play sports for the local district they reside in.

From:  http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2014/10/ted_ginn_sr_glenville_rebuild.html

The majority of Ginn's players at Glenville come from Ginn Academy, the school the coach founded in 2007 to help at-risk high school boys in Cleveland. Under the Cleveland Metropolitan School District's open enrollment rules, Ginn Academy can pull kids from all across the city.

But Ginn Academy students who play for the Tarblooders must live in the Glenville area.

Why do you have to interject rational thinking and patience into this?

Comment 06 Feb 2015

Good points.  Is anyone pointing to Hairball taking in 2 QB's on signing day then also getting a transfer from Houston?  Think he was forthright with the recruits?  Think they are happy that the former  AAC rookie of the year is now on the roster with 2 years of eligbility?  Doubtful.

Fact is that Urban is a stone cold killer on the recruiting trail.  He doesn't care about 'gentlemens agreements' nor certain fanbases' feelings about him.  No one should be shocked that all stops were pulled out to land another top 10 class.

Just like when Beck was hired, Urban will mend the fences with Weber when he finds Drayton's replacement. 

Comment 06 Feb 2015

Weber has been pretty silent but for a tweet that says he is hurt.  This is not him.  You should be tired of the over-reactions of the fanbases, the fake outrage of the scUM universe, but Weber himself hasn't been doing anything wrong.

Comment 06 Feb 2015

Plus the position needs to be posted anyways since they are all technically employees of the state.  So you cannot hire anyone before that position is open.  

And according to Kurelic at Bucknuts, Stan didn't interview with the Bears until yesterday anyways.

Comment 05 Feb 2015

I think he may have been looking for an out to stay with OSU, and they gave him one.  He doesn't seem to be afraid of competition...if he is, why go where they have a first round back playing for one more year followed by the commitment of the top back in the nation, to go along with a freshman who just logged a lot of minute this past year?

Comment 05 Feb 2015

When articles come out like this on Urban at OSU, your statement will have validity.  Until then, what is practiced at alabama and at OSU is apples to oranges.

Comment 05 Feb 2015

Exactly.  Tanner has had lower leg issues for a while, we all saw what has happened with Bogard, Trey Johnson himself revealed that he is already suffering from arthritis.  The only real surprise was Reeves, who did miss time this season (although they claimed it wasn't injury related).  But head trauma is nothing to joke about and I doubt that Urban would jettison his starting nickle back who played very well this season.

It wasn't coincidence that the news came out...Urban simply explained how they knew they have room for 27.

Comment 05 Feb 2015

Thanks Remy, but either this was an error, or needs explaining: In your By the Numbers chart, the 2014 class says there are 23 players in the class, 23 states, and 9 from Ohio.    That may have also created an error in your final totals for states.

Comment 04 Feb 2015

I agree, but at least the NCAA has expanded the benefits you can give non-scholarship players, such as meals, saving them what could be $3000 per semester.

Tress certainly used to hand out scholarships to walk-ons and Urban will if available.   He did offer Nic Sarac a scholarship, who in turn told Urban to use it on someone who needs the assistance.  http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2015/01/why_urban_meyer_talked_about_o.html
