Agreed. No way a kid from Florida sticks around nearly 2 years away from signing day. If his last name was Bosa, I'd believe the commit sticks but this far out, not a chance.
Good to see Matta getting his house in order. We know the level of coach he is, hopefully now, he can get a high level/character team on the court as UFM does on the gridiron
Forget about the stars. In his book, UFM talks about the 10-80-10 rule which I'm sure many of you have heard before. As long as we get as many of those top 10 kids in we'll be looking great regardless of their star ranking. If you haven't read it (highly recommended), he says that in 2014 about 20-30% of that team was a top 10 guy, a remarkable percentage and the key reason why we were able to beast our way through the postseason
Urban Meyer himself has said that without Braxton Miller, his first team at Ohio State is lucky to go .500. Braxton Miller all day long
We are a 7 point underdog because we should be. We have the fewest returning snaps in FBS by a significant margin. We will be trotting out a roster composed of 45 redshirt or true freshmen with an unproven offensive line and unknowns in the middle of the defensive line. Traditionally, a young team going on the road early in the season does not yield positive results, regardless of the number of stars they had coming out of high school. That said, we can win this game, but uncertainty leads to volatility, and gamblers do not like either of those things.
Thats a pass
I don't know if he is the dumbest, but he is definitely not the smartest
This is one of the most conflicting plays in recent CFB history for me. On the one hand it led to *ichigan losing in an incredibly humiliating way and on the other, it caused us to miss out on the B1G Championship game. I know we should have taken care of business against MSU and its our own fault for missing out on a Championship defense, but you have to consider it when thinking about what might have been last season. Either way, I feel bad for the kid, hope he gets his confidence back at some point.
James Franklin. He would never miss an opportunity to speak about his mediocre accomplishments while claiming he is on the cusp of the next big thing. Also, he would invite all of his friends over once a year to get belligerently drunk, wear all white, and keep you up all night while you're worrying that there is a klan meeting going on next door.
Go to Acme's and get the grilled oysters, will change your life
Thats a hell of a pitch to any 4/5* prospects that may be in attendance and a great reason for the guys who won't be recruited by Ohio State to play for Chris Ash who is operating very much like UFM in Piscataway.
Look for Dante Booker to have a monster year at OLB. Just as good as Perry against the run and better in coverage. Also Worley could be usurped by Baker very early it becomes apparent that he is not at the same caliber as Shazier and Lee were at the hybrid position(the expectations are that high). McMillan will be a force in his last year in the program as well, 120+ tackles should be the expectation and maybe a pick or two to show off his hands if they have improved.
Its always tough to pull kids out of the south, this one is big though, hope he decides on the good guys.
You know who's recruitment I really appreciate right now? Danny Clark
What are the main differences between him and Walker?
Any updates on Sibley? With the greyshirt request in he has to be decommitting soon. How certain are we of Cam Akers or any other big name power backs?
This model would be great at busting the SEC's annual beginning of the season dominance of top 25 polls. With the way the B1G is recruiting at the top of the conference I believe we will match up very well with the southern schools by the time this got off the ground.
The program is in a place where every big time recruit who is even considering leaving their home state has to at least take a look at what were doing in Columbus. Good times
1. Everybody on the team gives 100% effort on every play regardless of what it says on the scoreboard
2. Nobody goes down during the season with any type of career altering injury
3. The upperclassmen step up and show the underclassmen how to conduct themselves as Buckeyes
4. Compete against Oklahoma in Norman and avoid close games against teams we should easily close out
5. Beat *ichigan
Jordan is the GOAT, everybody else is fighting for 2nd
I knew what you meant. There seems to be a lot of people on board with disclosing private conversations on this thread
Keeping Wade in this class will be a fight that is well worth winning. I also can't understand why all of the best DTs come from the south; is it the easy access to Waffle House?
When we're getting 4/5 star guys along with the other top programs the difference between the champions and the nonchampions is assessment and development. We are at the very top at assessment with Pantoni and the best at development with our assistant coaches ,particularly Coach Mick.
