Talk about irony! Who would have guessed that a player from TSUN would have a chance to come to Ohio State and be in the mix on the O-line as a true freshman?
Spencer, MSU has a much better record against Ohio State than scum has over the last 3-4 games.... I know a rivalry is based on long-standing tradition, but if you look at records, MSU has had our number the last 2 of 3 games. Scum cannot touch that.
With that said, I totally agree about our greatest rival, but I'm just saying, MSU has to check in at #2 lately.
The main weakness on offense had last year was the lack of a deep ball threat. That helped MSU stack and attack our offense, I feel. Hopefully this year, we will have a deep threat or two back in our arsenal and we can put a beating on the MSU defense like we did the last trip to East Lansing.
The Sparty offense should be less dangerous than last season, which should give our defense the upper hand there. With that said, it's still gong to be a great rivalry game.
Great job, Kyle! You should sit and talk with Coach Warinner, you may find a position as OSU Offensive Consultant can be in your future!
Yes they, IL. It happened just about 4-5 months ago, in fact. And it is really nice to know that this is truly like a family of people. Let's all do our very best to keep the group tight. You never know when anyone can save a life!
Schiano has been a HC before, bet it's a little tough for anyone to be head coach and be the one making the decisions, to now not making all the decisions. I am pretty sure he will be gone in 2-4 years, tops.
Ed on the other hand, I hang onto the belief that he loves what he is doing now, and as long as the pay is good, he will stay. He is having huge success here, if he leaves, that all goes away.
After the scare we had on our board here, I put that number in my phone. I pray to God I will NEVER need to give it to anyone, or call on someone's behalf.
First off, Brutus, I up-voted you to help negate the piss-poor DV on your comment.
Second, I can't help but think we throw to the TE more this season. With all the catches in the Spring Game by our TE's, we should expect this more through the season. I think we saw more throws to the TE due to the defense taking away the WR's but our TE's made nice catches and helped move the chains against a pretty good defense. I cannot help but think this can be effective against the likes of Oklahoma, MSU, PSU, and scum.
Now THAT is NICE... What a China doll face.... I know I am old enough to be her dad, but she makes my heart twitter!
There is NOTHING like plucking a top recruit away from your biggest rival and have that player play SO CLOSE to your rival's campus! #BOOM!!!
Phi - totally agree on Burrow. He is the one player that impressed me most in the Spring Game. His throws were right on target, either a catch by the receiver or it was going to be incomplete. NO chances for a DB to pick many of his throws.
I think Burrow could knock a gnat off a water buffalo's ass at 25 paces, he's got that good of aim.
Agreed! Hearing him talk, I bet that excited Meyer! Sounds just like what coach tells every recruit. This young man has that Buckeye mindset.
I see three ass-kickings and one pretty good game!
Hi Chiro, I upvoted you, but not because I can't stand the Steelers. I used to HATE them with a PASSION, but with the loss of the Browns, moving to Baltimore, and the smart drafting of the Steelers (drafting OSU players), I actually RESPECT the Steelers now. I would never in my life wish on any other team or fans the loss that we Browns fans had to endure.
I am still a Browns fan, but not as rabid as I once was, and you can blame on the temporary loss of the team.
I like to think the reason the Browns have stunk so bad is due to their LACK of DRAFTING Buckeyes. ;)
Andrew - great job, first!
Do you think Clark's commitment is pending until the Martell offer is accepted/rejected?
Thank you, sir.
Watched the ESPN mock draft last night, just to see what they had for our young men. They have the Browns taking Zeke at #8, followed by Bosa to Tampa Bay at 9. Then, three straight Buckeyes Decker to Detroit, Lee to Atlanta, and Apple to Buffalo later.
I really HOPE the Browns get Zeke!!!
Sounds good! For you and anyone else that wants my cell number, it is 248-635-0198. Please feel free to take it down and text me about meeting up for a game. Just please in the text refer to the 11W site and your user name.
Trapt, we should pick a game and meet up. I can be there in about a half hour. I would love to see these young players.
Nebraska's second pitch: You like cow tipping?
I've got a 2-word answer for your question - HELL YES.
The talk up here in Detroit is that Decker is a real possibility. Either him or a LB from 'Bama, and I am pulling for the OSU pick!
Yeah Phi, I heard that in the news up here, and thought "Isn't Peppers a bit small?" If he is going to be successful there, he's going to need to spend more time in the weight room - and not just checking himself out in the mirrors!
Here's to hoping our offensive line breaks the little man!
I think we have plenty of speed for the deep threat. The pressure is with MAKING the deep catch, and that is just a matter of reps.
I would love to see Lee's name attached to the new walkout LB, hybrid LB, or whatever the new name will be for this position. This young man is fast enough to cover just about any player on the field, and he is big enough to punish running backs. And on top of all that, he just flat out has a nose for the football, great instincts.
