My biggest concern facing Wisky is that they have a bye the week before we face them. That gives them twice the amount of time to game plan for us then we do for them. Thankfully we have UFM & superior talent. One game at a time young Bucks, one game at a time.
I'm totally unsure who I would favor in the battle of minds between Tom Herman vs. Everett Withers. Anyone?
Plus it gives Dante Booker another week to heal as well.
Very interesting & exciting to see the quality of recruits they are seeing. Does the team not have practice at all this week? I'm sure they are with Coach Mick quite often this week, but curious to know if they have any "regular" practices throughout the week?
Very surprised with just how well Weber has played. He has far exceeded my expectations & think he'll be a star. With that being said however, I think the fact that a defense has to plan & worry about J.T. & Samuel as well running the ball, it opens up some lanes that might not be there otherwise.
4 out of the coaches top 10 are from the BIG. I'd say the compition has kicked up a notch from the pre Urban Meyer days. Buy raising the Buckeyes to the heights we are now seeing, the rest of the conference had to step it up a notch, or get lost in the dust to King Urban & our Buckeyes.
Is it at 8 or 9? The headline says 9 & the tweet says 8.
Unleash them & push them over the edge!
Wow, loved the video of Hawkins. Looks like a stud for a soph. Change the "w" to an "n", & we might have another 3 star turn out like Hankins, I'll take that in a heartbreak. Go Bucks
Wow, That's not good at all. Hopefully it is a stupid, childish mistake, & not a law breaking one that could see a once promising career in Columbus get derailed before it ever takes off. Come on TG, get it together man.
Just became a much bigger fan of Tyquon Lewis. Sounds like a very humble & team first type of guy. My kind of Buckeye. Here's to a great year.
Add Silverman to the list of people( outside of the 10 regular asst.coaches)along with Marroti & Pantini as just another case of Urban hiring the best in the biz. All these pieces working together to give the Buckeyes a fighting chance every year. What a time to be a Buckeye!
Love the film on Ellis Brooks, one of the hardest hitting highlites i've seen in a while. Kind of lb that makes running backs think twice the next time they hit the hole. Love to see this kid in scarlet & gray.
Surprised to see you mention Alex Stump as one of those trying to make the 2 deep, but didn't mention Torrance Gibson?
WOW, one of the best stories ever for a former walk-on. Should be inspirational for future walk-on types to never give up your love of the game, you'll never know where you might end up unless you try. Great job Nate!
I think Baugh is locked in as a starter. All the reports I read, he had a great spring. I think it is more the 4 guys behind him sorting themselves out on the depth chart.
Even though 2017 will hopefully be historic, it looks like there are plenty of 2018 4 & 5 stars putting the Buckeyes near the top of their list. Sometimes I think I need to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. What a time to be a Buckeye. Come join the Urbanator, or watch the CFB on t.v.
Just read a very cool piece on him on 247 sports. Sounds like another special person, as well as an awesome athlete. His mom sounds like quite a special lady as well. Just love the character of the recruits Urbans been realing in. Keep the ball a rolling.
Gotta love the recent leadership role in the LB unit. From Curtis Grant to Josh Perry & now Raekwon, I'm sure it rubs off on the rest of the unit. Top notch ability plus top notch character = my kind of Buckeye. Makes you proud both on & off the field.
I would rather have him than L. Wade. Both because he's an Ohio kid, but just as important, he has the more prototypical size we are now looking for in our DB's.
I think he's better than L. Wade. Certainly has better size that we want in our DB's.
The article states that some schools have "8-10-12" of these positions. It seems to me that Tim Hinton got moved to such a position after Coach Stud took over the offensive line. Does anyone know how many of these positions the Buckeyes have, or how many somebody like Bama has?
Great read today. Makes me proud to be both a Buckeye & an American. This Urban Meyer guy seems to have it going on. First the letters to the fallen soldiers family's, and the fact that he has 5 out of 10 of the 3 biggest wins in the GFEI ratings makes me happy to be a Buckeye. Hilliards letter gave me goose bumps, just another example of the quality young men representing us both on & off the gridiron. Thanks Coach Meyer for making us proud of ALL things Buckeyes.
Thanks for the info. I know he has had back issues for years, but was unaware of the resulting foot complications. sucks man.
