Obviously a biased ESPiN index. OSU has the toughest schedule in the B1G, which doesn't surprise me much really but still only ranked as the 31st toughest schedule.
Caps need to find the net tonight. Tough loss having out shot and out hit the Penguins in game 2. Can't keep giving the puck away either, that hurt bad. Playoff hockey always has a goaltender standing on their head, unfortunately for the Caps Murray has been just that for the most part.
Let's GO CAPS!
Yep, gotta be Archie and one of either Troy skunk weasel killer Smith or Mr. Orlando Pace, the best ever non-skill position player in OSU history.
Great Skully DJ. Love the advanced stats for the young Bucks in the Spring game. In one other way to early 2017 draft I saw some of our Bucks going a bit higher. The great thing is we have an entire year of Buckeye football before we find that out!
In a short yardage situation choosing between Pryor and Troy Smith, I take Pryor every time. That said...
Pete Johnson, Carlos Hyde, Eddie George, Zeke, then maybe a QB...
The problem is that a lot of these kids are put on that pedestal in HS and during summer AAU ball and have this mindset that they deserve to come right into a program and have a spot given to them. I believe that was the case with several of the transfers OSU had this past season. Being successful in major D1 sports takes a lot of hard work and I'm not sure these youngsters understand that and feel entitled coming in.
With that being said I hope OSU can lock up Markell and he can come in and make the team better with his contributions.
Great matchup between the Caps and Penguins in this round. Should be fun!
Tank you very much. Good work this week!
I was thinking of the 2 biggest plays I have personally witnessed from Buckeye players and both are on this list with Mo Clarrett's strip of Taylor in the 2002 NC and Zeke's 85yds through the heart play against Bammer. Both totally game changers.
or lack of italics...
Edited to add that since all of the other nations elite teams have offered why not throw your hat in the ring and see if he at least visits.
Gant is very good. Against my old alma mater, Lima Senior High, he really stood out on a night where TSJ was outclassed at most other positions on the field. Kid flies to the ball and is a sure tackler. One would guess he will get that offer but not sure why he hasn't as of yet. The offer from Sparty may put a little pressure on the Bucks to extend one.
I've been thinking the same about the Browns and their recent slide to #8 and all the picks they are getting. I would take Cook twice before Hackenberg though, he didn't really show much improvement after his Freshman year and he has the yips.
Nice work Bass
Brutus I disagree man. If you are going to be a first rounder go ahead and take the money...
The long throw "competition" on Saturday showcased the incredible strength of Cardale. He didn't even step into his throw and lobbed it over 65yards.
Joe Burrow really impressed me with the touch he had on his throws. Again not the sheer strength or even close to Cardale but really showed promise as the backup and after JT leaves.
Always interesting hearing what kind of wisdom the QB whisperer has to say. No laces? Really?
Decker will be a solid NFL player for years. I'm interested to see if any of our draft invitees slip out of the first round, that wouldn't be a fun situation to be in.
Good stuff. I'll be taking the kids of their first experience in the Shoe. They are crazy excited.
Lived in the DC metro for about 10yrs between my time back here in the great state of Ohio. I became a hockey fan and embraced the Caps but was always heartbroken during the playoffs. They just haven't seemed to be able to get out of their own way even when they are predicted to win. Either that or the Flyers/Penguins dash their dreams with unbelievable goal tenders standing on their heads making it nearly impossible to score and shutting out Ovi. Still follow the Caps but trying to root for the home team just hasn't taken shape much since they stink.
B I N G O
Cardale will go in the 3rd to San Fran
JT Barrett will go later in the 3rd when he declares
I'm still pissed OSU never offered Xavier Simpson. I hope like hell he doesn't become a thorn in their side playing for TTUN either, but I fear it will.
R.I.P. Big Will. Great man and great Buckeye.
Good work DJ
Kyle is a beast and I hope he brings the gold home in August. I heard rumor that after the Olympics he may not be back to OSU. Hoping that is just rumor because the team will be ready for another championship run soon!
Yes they are reasonable and a lot fun to watch at St. John. The crowd over the past several years has increased along with the Buckeye success on the mats. You can still walk up and get tickets for matches at the door though.
Urban Meyer and his assistants NEVER sit on their asses. The rivalry will be back once TTUN wins once or twice in a decade. Sure they are making a little noise on the recruiting train but still not beating the good guys at that either.
Signed, not concerned...
That wouldn't be the best move he ever made and I don't think that's obvious at all really. This was a super young team. I would think one of the bigs would be more likely to move on. No speculation as to whom though...
I've been meaning to comment on this thread since it was posted. Let me jump in here. Nate's loss to Gilman was almost like our championship win with Myles Martin, both matches were won or lost with great scrambles and good timing. Nate was tenths of a second away from taking Gilman down when the period ended. Gilman is a great defensive wrestler. Myles was in an incredible battle with Nikal the entire match and almost ended on his back but rolled Nikal for a 6pt move that was the game changer in the match.
I really like Stieber and the hire but some close to the ORTC feel like he wasn't the correct move for that assistant position because of different reasons but to me he wasn't a bad choice what so ever due to what he has done for this program.
I wonder what Kyle Snyder will do moving forward. He just beat a guy who was a previous National Champ that had won 88 straight matches and was quite a bit heavier than he is. He's a World Champion and will most likely be an Olympic medalist if things fall right. One of the other recent big names in collegiate wrestling stated after Snyder won that he wouldn't go back to OSU but go pro, since he's won everything he can at this level. Is that something that is being talked about and considered by Tom Ryan and his assistants?
Thanks Curt! Appreciated the twitter chat during the tourney as well.
