You will be missed. I don't know what I am going to do now at 7:55ish every night during the week.
So Martell might be slinging the ball around to Grimes and Mack, with Lindsey in the slot, and Demario McCall at the H..
This could be very fun to watch.
Anthony Hines only has 90 offers...
What happened to the other 38?
Seems like Okudah and Grimes are close..
This class could be the Pound-for-Pound best class ever.
Anybody have any news on which way the wind has been blowing for Shaun Wade lately? Hate to see him get away...
Is it wrong that the first thing I thought when I saw this was...
I wonder if they will fire this thing up on Saturdays in the fall?
Put some Zeke highlights up on that b****.
Grimes, Okuda, Browning, Reip, Akers, & Lindsay to round out the class will be fine.
And hang on to Shaun Wade.
I think we all did.
Just out of curiosity, why?
I'm not trying to be a dick, but I do see this often. I don't use Twitter and I couldn't care less to try to show any love to any recruit before they even show up on campus, but I don't see why it's so frowned upon.
The kids seem to love the attention during the recruiting process, they have public social media accounts, and in 8 months they are going to be celebrated as Buckeyes or who ever they choose.
If I went on Twitter and said "Hey Shaun, The Buckeye family is happy to welcome you. You're a beast".. Or something like that, why is that a bad thing?
Honest question.. Do the athletes not like it or is it just other fans?
A year ago, we all thought 2017 was going to be the best WR haul in the history of recruiting. We were a lock for the #1 receiver in the nation, and it seemed like we might get about three more of the top 5.
Here we are a year later and nothIng is certain. We have very limited spaces left and no WRs in the class.
I'm sure Urban and Coach Smith will work their magic and all will be ok, but it still feels like just another case of how crazy CFB recruiting is.
Myers is god damn animal.
is he under-rated?
Tress and Urban are two totally different coaches and recruiters.
Urban was a rockstar national recruiter before he ever got to Columbus. He's the 'it' guy, and I think that makes it easy to stroll into a kid's living room in South Florida and ask him how many championships he wants to win.
Tress was the put his arm around you and tell you he is going to treat you like a son type. Tress was not a national coach celebrity, he wore a sweater vest. He played Tressel ball. You knew it wasn't going to be flashy, but you would win.
I couldn't look up to both of them any more, but to me it's no mystery why Urban is the great national recruiter, and Tress kept the kids at home.
To be fair... Tressel left Urban with sanctions.
I worship both of them, so it's difficult for me to say.. But Cooper was a great recruiter, and Tress had more talent coming in with no sanctions.
still props to Tress.. Only he could have beat Miami with that team.
So.. You're just staying positive I guess.
Seems like Urban says this stuff every year. Find me a preseason quote where Urban says We are right where we want to be.
Your opinion is valid, but I think this team will win 10 games and should beat Michigan at home.
Are we CFP lock? Not at this point, but I wouldn't bet against us. Urban has never had a bad recruitng class.
Adriaticos Buckeye supreme.. And wings and fried mushrooms from cluck-u chicken..
Urban noticed him in a game of high school dodge-ball...
lol.. Normally I would assume this is sarcasm, but it is Urban Meyer... For some reason I think he could notice the fast twitch muscles on a grocery store clerk.
Is this a joke? I still don't know.
We have a seasoned veteran leader at QB, and another one on the ofensivo line.
We have skill guys for days, and I feel like Curtis Samuel is going to shine like a diamond with his oportunity this year.
Conley is a lock for All-big ten, and I wouldn't be surprised if he is an All-american corner when it's all said and done.
And by the way.. We have a Bosa.
I'm not worried.
Who gets an offer from a top 5 national program, and then gets chippy about it right to the coach's face.
Comes across very weird, and I frankly don't believe that Urban came back at him like that... There is a difference between being honest and blunt, and just being a dick.. I can't see Urban being the latter.
oh well.. Time to move on I guess.. Bye Landon.
That's some A-grade name dropping my friend..
Well put.. And I would like to take it a step further.. How bout we stop with the early commitments to schools with limited spots, while continuing to look for the best fit for yourself. How bout we stop convincing the schools we are committed to, that we are 110% committed, while we go to off season camps rocking another schools apparel.. No more holding a spot at a blue chip school, while you fall in love with everything about another school.
And while we are really stirring the pot here, no more pulling kids scholarships, oversigning, and handing a kid a medical pink slip to make everything ok.
A commitment should be a commitment.. A coach should be honest with a recruit, and a recruit should be honest with a coach.
This kid needs to toughen up. Urban didn't roll out the red carpet because he didn't think he needed him. Maybe he was wrong about that.. But until this kid goes out now and proves that Urban made a mistake, I say he has to stay humble.
Now get off my damn lawn also!!
Great size.. Cannon for an arm.. Seems to have a dedication to his craft that you rarely find..
What am I missing? I must be honest I don't catch many Akron Hoban games in my spare time. Can anyone tell me why this kid gets poo-pood so damn much
If his biggest issues are accuracy and decision making, I feel like those can easily be fixed.
10 star weekend perhaps?
Tyjon's tweet sounds like he knows something.
This recruiting thing is one f----d up ball of wax.
Lord help us all.
But it still doesn't surprise me.
We can talk about reasons why you pass on the number one QB in the nation if we have to.. But Collier isn't going to be in that conversation.
No offense to the 'Team-Stephen' fans out there, but I really would be shocked if he ever takes a meaningful snap at OSU.
You really have Dwayne Haskins and then a bunch of distant seconds. Guys like Burrow or Clark have some time to develop of course, but make no mistake, Martell comes in and instantly pushes to get on the field.
I don't even like Jaelen Gill thinking about anything blue or yellow.
He must be a Buckeye.
There are always 1 or 2 recruits every year that I think are a perfect fit for OSU. Gill is my runaway favorite from 2018 so far.
