I always wonder how do baseball players get away with it. Wasn't Weeden drafted and played pro baseball for a few years before going back to college?
He's a big boom or bust prospect at QB. Worth taking the risk on him.
As to the second point, he's a kid. I remember doing my college visits way back (not for sports just in general) and a similar thing happened. Absolutely loved what I just saw everytime and walked away thinking I was gonna go there.
If even one person feels sexually harassed it is serious. Who cares about tradition if it involves hazing.
Considering they almost beat us last year losing sometime in the next 4 years seems likely. I'm saying 2015 because no Braxton.
Has Braxton ever thrown over 250 yds in a game? Expecting him to do it every game next year is pretty crazy.
Teams from Ohio aren't obliged to take Ohio State players...
This could just be Urban tempering expectations after a bunch of misses this year. Classic PR move. Say you were only going to take 15 anyway. It doesnt look as bad when you dont have a top 10 class.
Braxton's deep ball has always been fine. He has no touch on the shorter passes.
I'm predicting we finish around 11-12. Not bad but around where Tressel usually ended up. Filled with more Ohio guys who really want to be here so I think they will play way better than their class ranking indicates. If anything finishing lower than expected is good for us because it'll teach Urban to be a bit more smart in recruiting.
I really really hope Gene Smith was forwarded this article. The point about not charging for something despite the fact you can is the best. Arguably the best team in sports the last 5 years, Alabama, still only charges students 10 bucks a game to get in which is crazy. Lower prices= happier students= in the long term they are more likely to give back to the university with nice donations. Yeah you miss out on a few hundred bucks per kid, but like the article states, schools need to stop thinking in such short time spans.
Great coaches mess up sometimes. Heck Popovich, probably the best coach in all of sports, messed up the end of Game 6 by taking Duncan out and then Saban, arguably the 2nd best coach in sports, made the wrong call in trying a 60 yard field goal at the end of the Iron Bowl.
We need to lock down all that Ohio talent in the top 200. Could be one of the best OSU classes in history.
Dont be a douche bag like Michigan fans are to Michigan State. We should stop with the dumb little brother stuff.
Maybe Braxton needs to do some high profile partying to capture the Johnny Manziel magic for next season. haha
I did have a dream the other day that Braxton put up 4000 yds passing and 1000 rushing next season. It was awesome. So let's hope!
Clearly all NFL players work 24/7 and have no fun and never take a break and never get burnt out from working too much.
The last few years FSU has been putting 10 people a draft into the NFL with the similar numbers expected for this year Hard for a prospect not to be impressed by that especially, since before this year, we've struggled with our NFL numbers for a bit.
There's zero doubt that over the last 20 years we've been impressive in this regard but I doubt any recruit is looking at what happened three coaches ago as a metric for developing NFL talent. Fisher has been doing a hell of a job at FSU.
Not anywhere near the level that FSU does.
With the weapons we have at WR and RB, we need a devastating passing game to make them even more effective, otherwise teams will continue to stack 8 in the box and dare Miller to throw the ball.
He looks to have a really weird, Tebow-ish release.
I wonder why Urban never went to a draft before. For a dude that is 100% about recruiting you think being shown on ESPN with your guys going in the 1st and 2nd round would be the ultimate card to play with recruits.
I'd say he produced results. He helped take A&M from a mediocre/bad team to competing for national titles in the SEC in the course of 2 years. That's pretty impressive to me.
People forget Lebron did this exact same thing at 21 and he turned out ok.
Pretty sure almost every player in the NFL parties but we never hear about it.
I think Braxton is going to limit his running a lot this year. I think one of the terms of him coming back was not being ran 20 times a game because the risk of injury greatly increases. I think Braxton sees a dip in his running numbers like Manziel did last year as he focuses more on getting the ball to the tremendous amount of talent and speed around him and really works on the passing game for NFL scouts.
Gotta be Jenkins. We have enough fast and short recievers. We need a few more tall guys that can go up and get the ball.
