...and yet he would still get paid. Yes, it would tarnish his fighting aura a bit, but he will get paid more (win or lose) in 30 minutes than ten of us 11Wers making 100k/year would make in a lifetime combined.  Ridiculous.  But the machine supports him because they get a piece of the pie.  After reading that article, I will never put another dime of entertainment $ in his direction.

This is a great problem to have and if it is true (and I emphasis "if") then it is simply natural selection at work.  Those who would choose a school because of the immense pressure and competition may not fit best in the program at OSU.  But for those who do accept the challenge, it will be an opportunity for iron to sharpen iron and make themselves much better both personally and more importantly as a collective team.

I discovered 11W several years ago...since that time, my son (just turned 16) and I seemingly read every published word (according to my wife).  All that to say, how long has 11W been around?  My assumption was that it was only around for a couple years prior to my discovery. And even though Patrick is a young buck, it sounds like 11W may have been around lover than I suspected.

Ok, Apack, so I got to the comments a little late...here you start a broo ha ha (sp?) and then delete your comment so the rest of the world can't share in the obvious misqueue?...Good move (although I'm still a bit curious what you said that caused such an uproar).

Comment 11 Jul 2014

This is much easier for me to agree with now that we have Hilliard on board.  Otherwise, the pain would have been much, much greater.  We have our guy...Baker would have just been the extra credit points assuring the A+ (which is never a bad thing).  Good luck, Baker.  

(For the record, I still think we have a 50/50 shot to land him after this season plays out).

For me to answer otherwise would mean that they would have a 100% success rate on every recruit.  And while these numbers have some sort of value, I have to believe that Urban and Co. (who have forgotten more football knowledge than I will ever know) have reason to believe he has the talent, ability, heart, and whatever other tangibles/intangibles it takes to be successful at tOSU.

I'll be the first to admit that we love it when our recruits are validated by the metrics at these camps, but they should be one of many tools in the toolbox to identify potential future success.

Btw, I was not the downvote on your last comment.

Comment 08 Jul 2014

No, I think it's just that Urban and LJ are horrible talent evaluators who do not know what they're doing.  I'm sure it will be a direct correlation to his success at OSU...very much in line with Mike Mitchell.

Comment 08 Jul 2014

I had forgotten that he was a walk-on.  Does anyone know if he earned that scholarship this year? If not, I wonder if they would push Sprinkle's recently vacated scholarship his way? 

Comment 04 Jul 2014

It may have been during the Wisky game, I'm not sure...but that definitely happened at the Northwestern game.  All it took was a little smooth jazz being played on the sidelines and Miller was dancing like we knew he could.

You just gave away our first play.  Now they are going to be expecting it.
