Cannot possibly have too much talent at any position, especially qb. Can't wait to see ALL the qbs grow over the coming years. 

Comment 28 Jul 2014

While having a RB heads and shoulder above the rest isnt absolutely necessary, it is an added bonus: Meyers 2 championship teams had Tebow, a big guy to get a yard or 2 when he absolutely needed it. As long as you establish a back that can do that, roll with everyone in the other situations.

Reggie Bush, regardless of it being taken away, was not a power back who won it. Dontre Wilson is a very similar type of player 

Comment 28 Jul 2014

How many can though? Izzo and Coach K? Elite players rarely play more than a year or 2 max. Anyone staying longer than that generally doesn't have as high a ceiling anyway. 

Comment 27 Jul 2014

Greg Oden and Sullinger were 2 of the most dominant post players in the country while at Ohio State. You can't develop players that, I think to the majority of fans, consistently show a lack of effort on the floor. 

Matta has had a fair number of players reach the NBA with solid careers so far: Conley, ET, Koufos, Sully to name a few 

Comment 27 Jul 2014

There are literally THOUSANDS of high school players. No matter how good recruiting sites are, they can't possibly see and evaluate everyone. That's why star ratings are overblown. Sure, they get a lot of the top players from all over, but they also miss guys that go on to do great things. 

Comment 24 Jul 2014

Assuming you're right about UFM lasting another 5-7 years and Stoops still being OU's coach after that time, I don't see a guy near 60 wanting to uproot all that he's built there to go somewhere else. 

Comment 22 Jul 2014

He's never even played before and may not even be the starter? Might want to hold the "upgrade" talk until he wins the job/actually plays a few games. 

As much as I hate Alabama, you can't just discount what McCarron accomplished as the starter, overrated or not. 

Comment 21 Jul 2014

While it's probably naive to say this, maybe it's a good thing that Ok St lost some pieces. FSU won't know exactly what to expect. I don't think osu will beat them, but hopefully it's a close game. 

Comment 21 Jul 2014

I think it's going to be the DBs and how fast Ash can get them to play insync with each other and the rest of the defense. I don't think they'll be tested until PSU which gives time for growing pains. 

I definitely am optimistic about another 0 in the L column though. GoBucks! 

Comment 20 Jul 2014

I sure hope they win 9-10 games this year, both keep their jobs, and they stay stuck in mediocrity. That's just me though.

1) OSU football-Is there anything better than a game in the shoe with family or friends that love OSU as much as you do? 

2) Steelers football-an unpopular opinion on here, I know, but I love that they're a class organization and have rarely not been at least a playoff contender since the latest I can remember: the days of Kordell Stewart. Will never forget my first live game in Cincinnati with my dad, who has always loved the steelers and AC/DC above all else in the entertainment category. 

3) OSU basketball-It's something to watch a few days a week during the dreadful Ohio winters with friends and family in the cozy confines of heated house, and I love the passion that most of the players Matta gets plays with.
