Cannot possibly have too much talent at any position, especially qb. Can't wait to see ALL the qbs grow over the coming years.
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
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.
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
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.
I find this oddly fascinating and disturbing at the same time..
"We didn't get the whole chocolate bar (yet), but we got a Hershey's Kiss." And all those Hershey's add up! Welcome to Buckeye Nation!
I think most "enjoy" a lot of visits, but it obviously takes much more to land a commit. We'll see what happens. With or without him on board, OSU is in great shape.
These film studies are always so in-depth and easy to understand, assuming you have a basic or better comprehension of football. Excellent job, Kyle.
Hazing and sexual harassment have no place at Anywhere
There you go.
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.
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.
It's hilarious that Bama, with so many questions, including replacing qb, are the favorites.
But..but..urban turned players into criminals and even murderers! Jimbo is completely in the right for not disciplining Jameis!
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.
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!
Glad to hear that he's at least getting a chance to compete for a roster spot. Hopefully, he can improve a bit more on his jump shot and turnovers and make the roster as the 3rd point guard.
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.
.....muschamp coaches at Florida. Mark Stoops is UK coach.
True, but no one technically won that game so thus the "tie"
FYI, Sylvester sunk a 3 to end Illinois' undefeated season on the final day of the regular season that year, I do believe.
...or a middle of the road Big Ten team.
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.
If half our remaining commits come from that list, which I expect to be around 8-10 more, it would be a very solid overall class.
