I think ranking these teams all depends on how much weight you put into your qualifiers in the current state of the program, recruiting area, history, fan support, and conference. All that being said I, through my scarlet glasses, take OSU #1 no matter what.
I see the tweet by Salyer in there basically calling out the Georgia fans for bashing Cox. Sign them up Urban!
All three have much more star power on the interior but it would be hard to rank any of them ahead of our beloved Buckeyes on the edges.
Is it August yet?
I've met quite a few Buckeye legends but had a good experience and started up a friendship with one of the best QB's that rarely gets mentioned with the best Buckeye QB's of all time, Corney 'Flam' Greene. I initially met him getting on an airplane headed to Arizona for the 2002 NC. We talked a bunch waiting in line and then ended up sitting together both on the flight out of BWI and also were on the same flight back. For the 2006 NC game we also met up and he invited my brother and I out to hang with Pete Johnson, Archie, and others. We got caught up doing some other things that day but we have kept in touch since then and hung out some when he gets back to Columbus.
2a and 2b... wait and see.
No way Urban and the coaching staff wants to let either of these guys know they are not second up. I would guess they will rotate backup duties all season unless one of them really blows up.
Lived in the DMV for a lot of years, started watching the NHL then and went to a bunch of Caps games. Now living back home in the great state of Ohio and follow the Jackets. Would love to see the Jackets get hot and beat the Penguins in the first round. I think the Caps are due and will beat anyone in front of them this post season.
Not a bad pedigree at all with Horn. His dad was pretty good with the Saints for a while.
I believe I saw a TE screen early on in the video... AMAZING
Agree with Buckzilla... this game has been terribly officiated.
One of my favorite Zeke interviews ever! Sauce the RIBS!
Really, really looking forward to seeing how this class finishes out. Keep the big guns and keep on adding.
I was told similar info on Hurd by a guy I work with who is a big UT fan. He's trying to get back on the team, Don't want him in S&G, we're good.
No OSU did not recruit Xavier Simpson hard. He was offered late but was already blue by then. I went to HS with his dad at Lima Senior and still talk from time to time. I think Matta had an issue with Xavier's size. He's not very tall but the kid can do what it takes and lead a team. Matta and crew once recruited exceptionally but that has seemed to go down hill just like their record over the past several years.
That's why teams that have their plays called by fans lose all of the time. No element of surprise.
Good for Verlon.
I hated their guts too. I was there with a large group of fraternity brothers and we all went to the game. Probably talked a lot of shit on the way in the stadium. It goes without saying the walk out was much more quiet. We actually had a blast in Happy Valley that weekend regardless of the score. I can't remember how we got home but it was a fun weekend.
Awesome that the information about Zach Lawrence was included in the Skully today. Zach is a buddy and fraternity brother of mine and an insane Buckeye fan. His wife and 2 awesome kids need their dad home and healthy again. His accident was tragic. Thanks for the plug 11W!
Romero is a beast that hasn't focused 100% on wrestling. He is an incredible multi-sport athlete and its crazy to think what he'll be in a year or two with only his focus on the mat. That said he is at a little bit of a disadvantage because of it. Gonna be fun seeing it all play out and awesome to see that Ryan is keeping the cupboard full!
I'm curious as to what Geno does different compared to 99.999% of other NCAA coaches. Most prognosticators said this wasn't UConn's most talented team as they lost the starting 5 to the WNBA last year. Dude can sure coach no doubt about that.
GO LADY BUCKS! BEAT ND!
Went to a couple of O. Liberty games this season to watch a son of one of our friends who plays on the o-line. White played mostly QB in those games and just showed crazy athleticism. When he did play DB or LB he was always around the ball. Will be interesting to see what position he ultimately settles into at OSU.
I was a few years behind his dad William White at Lima Senior High. He was and still is a class act.
The thing that makes that double leg even more impressive is he was wrestling with injured ribs... so damn impressive.
I fell like Rodriguez can wrestle 125 again with some good nutritional help. I don't see a way in the world that NaTo gets back to 125 in his final season. He'll work hard and be back better than ever next year at 133. Word is Hayes maybe able to wrestle 149 next year with Pletcher staying at 141, which would then mean a move for Micah to 149. If that happens then one of Burcher/Cleary/Ryan will be at 165.
We'll see how it shakes out but hopefully it a season with no injuries and another National Chapionship, or two...
Great season by the Bucks. Penn State was on a mission this weekend. No shame taking 2nd over some other crazy tough teams. We'll be back better than ever next season. Hard work, fixing a few holes in the lineup and this team will be in another battle with the Lions next season.
Absolutely need the guys in the consolation bracket to make some noise tomorrow hopefully making it to Saturday. While we do technically have a shot things need to fall in place for it to happen.
Jose with a pin in the consolation bracket tonight. Faces a familiar foe tomorrow in Lambert from Nebraska who beat Jose 8-0 in the B1G regular season. Good job kid! Keep up the hard work.
