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.
what's up with Thad Mattas ankle?
No love for Billy Price?
No love for Billy Price?
Great clip. Reminds me of one a few years ago, where El Gaupo trucked Stan Drayton in a drill, & knocked him on his can. The footage of Urban laughing his ass off was priceless. Love to see the Buckeyes having fun & giving back to the community.
That qb is tiny. Maybe 5'4" and under a buck fify?
Stumps me as well.
That's 10 recievers that could probably start at a lot of other places in the country. If we can avoid any injuries, I think this group has the potential to be the most talented group ever based on both abilities & depth. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
Buckeye problems. Pretty sure we can't lose either way.
I thought the Kardasian line was almost as funny as her tongue-in-cheek comment about Eli "being an unemployed, homeless, college drop out" a few weeks before the draft. In addition to being quite successful as the unofficial leader of the Buckeye moms group, which I believe she started, I find her to be quite humorous and enlightening.
Papabucks- I think he actually wants to grayshirt. That way he can start all 4 years, & won't have to sit & watch Cam punt this season. Should benefit all parties involved.
I remember quite vividly the setback of only having 82 scholarships for the few years we were under NCAA sanctions. If you only have 85 guys on scholarship, and you lose a few to grades, medical issues, transferring to play elsewhere, homesickness, etc., your penalizing your self of only having 82 or so scholarships. I think you HAVE to plan ahead for unforseen players leaving early.
