  • SPORTS MOMENT: Ohio State's 26-21 win over Michigan last year. Watching John Simon walk across the field and hug coach Meyer was overwhelming. There was no way we were ever going to lose that game. That win really started off what I think is going to be the greatest era in buckeye football history.

Don't forget about Danny Clark committing as well, even though it's still like 4 years down the road until he can play.  Probably going to be the best out of the bunch committed so far.  Getting Gibson to commit would obviously be something that Urban doesn't turn down, just kind of wondering if it would affect Dwayne Haskins at all for 2016 since he would already know that he is sandwiched between Gibson, Burrow, and Clark.  I really want an early commit at QB next year because that class has the chance to be special #buckeyeprobs!

With that Haywood contract on board for next year with 3 first round picks we WIlL get another at least respectable player added to our roster next offseason. This even further lowers the the pressure to trade for Love. Cavs should just sit tight until the trade deadline approaches or until Minny agrees to a non-Wiggins trade for Love

Comment 11 Jul 2014

Legit chance we pull in Malik Jefferson? Just seems typical of Meyer to lose out on a top 50 in state guy and somehow get an even higher ranked guy to replace him, thanks for all the coverage from the last few days!

Comment 09 Jul 2014

Not to mention waiters, thompson, and hell even bennett are better role players than the heat have right now.

Comment 05 Jul 2014

I would be so ridiculously happy if this actually happens. Also, honestly I think we can eventually pry K-Love away from Minny through a trade to form the "Core 4".  A package of our three '15 1st rounders, some other junk picks/players that we might be able to get out of some sign & trades from Miles, Deng, or Hawes, and then maybe 2 out of 3 of Waiters, Bennett, or Thompson.  I think Minny would eventually give in to that offer without Wiggins because they are going to lose Love next offseason anyway.  Then maybe trade the remaining player out of Waiters/Bennett/Thompson for a 3 and D guy and a defensive post presence that can block shots and play the 5 spot.  Just the thought of this is getting me really excited.

At the very minimum he is plus defender who  is excellent making plays in transition. If he puts on good weight and really fills out he could become an outstanding finisher in traffic. Really want to see how plays in the clutch next season, does he have that killer instinct to make him great. Love this pick!

Comment 05 Jun 2014

We have been considered the leaders for Van Jefferson, a 4 star out of Tennessee, for a while. Kirk, Jefferson, and Peete would definitely be a monster haul!

Comment 04 Jun 2014

Carter has the size to plug those holes, He could be key to freeing up our bevy of pass rushers.

Comment 29 May 2014

I know, sorry those guys were definitely different cases as 5 stars. Just kind of disappointing that we have let some great players get away while our linebackers have struggled.

Comment 29 May 2014

Still we have missed out on some great in-state talent recently like Luke Kuechly, Marcus Rush, Denicos Allen, Chris Borland, and Chi Chi Ariguzo all at linebacker. Not to mention 5 stars Jordan Hicks and Trey DePriest from Ohio.

Comment 26 May 2014

Chances of flipping CJ Conrad? Do u feel like we will go hard after him now that clark and hentges both seem to be heading elsewhere?

Comment 14 May 2014

You are not crazy, just did a quick search online and we would be third on that list with 54 by my count. Gil Brandt has always seemed like a bit of a troll to me, wouldn't waste any time worrying about him though.

edit: i may very well have been two off in my quick count... Tied for second go bucks!

edit of my first edit: I was two off because we had two drafted in the first round this year that weren't on the page i read, oops!

Comment 14 May 2014

Love the type of player and leader Harris is already.  Hopefully his presence at OSU can reel in VJ King and Willie Jackson too although I don't know how highly rated he is now.  A 2016 class of King, Omari Spellman, Derek Funderburke, and Jackson would be an incredible addition on top of our 2014 and 2015 hauls!

Comment 09 May 2014

Just curious, do you consider Braxton a loser then? Because his teams really haven't won any major awards while he was here either.

Comment 08 May 2014

I see your point and Mitchell was actually rated the 11th best RT last year, but most of his struggles were with speedy edge rushers.  I feel like he could be even more effective inside at guard and Robinson would be solid at RT until Thomas retires.

Comment 08 May 2014

They tried that when they drafted Mitchell Schwartz in the second round. He hasn't exactly been rock solid so far. I say draft Robinson and move Schwartz to guard. Take a CB at 26 and the best available WR in the second round (c'mon Kelvin Benjamin!). Give Hoyer a shot and take a QB to develop in the middle rounds.

Comment 04 May 2014

Apparently grandstaff and d'angelo russell have been talking up osu to another texan, 5 star PF elijah thomas. I still want bragg more, but thomas would be one heck of a replacement for him.

Comment 29 Mar 2014

So awesome, this was looking like a "bridge the gap" type season, but with Lee's presence inside we should contend for a B1G title. Shannon Scott, Anthony Lee, and Sam Thompson, those r 3 really good pieces for us to build around. Hopefully Amir, Marc, Kam, Trey, and the freshmen can provide adequate support

Comment 26 Mar 2014

So it kind of looking like he will be competing with esa ahmad for a spot in this class. If Bragg decides to go elsewhere...
