That's Big Stop Rob!
And Dre'mont Jones too!
Rod Gerald's injury in 77 was killer. That's why Greg Castignola was in. Although Greg played pretty well in relief, Rod Gerald was a special talent - witness his performance in the 77 Orange Bowl win over Colorado. Also, OU's offense was as sloppy as it was explosive in those days. Multiple fumbles during a game were common. If only OSU would have recovered the OSK though.
Ah, c'est la vie.
Well, he wasn't always 70. At one time, he could play the position better than most ever have. In fact, he played it so well that kids today know who he is.
That's the kind of player I'd take.
You looking for a job?
Mack, Hausmann, Farrell, and Jordan all play on offense. Pridgeon might, but I don't see him supplanting Prince or Jones.
Cooper, Barrow, Fuller, and Davis play significant time on defense. I may be in the minority, but I think Bosa plays much less than his brother did as a freshman as he grows into a 3-technique tackle. He'll play, just not as much as many predict. But I think he'll be excellent down the road.
Namath was a great QB at Alabama. I'd take that kind of talent.
I think you misinterpreted the post. You may want to revisit your reaction upon re-reading it because I didn't see the poster take the position you're asserting.
That's a lot of analysis. I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to say though. Barrett isn't making decisions quickly enough? Barrett doesn't trust his line? Beck didn't prepare his QBs well enough? Just not sure where you're going.
If they're on a mission from God, then they're getting the band back together. Next comes Murph & The Murphtones.
I'm thinking Sideshow Mel.
Wasn't Nate a special teams contributor at OSU? That's pretty amazing by itself.
I would find the desire to maintain the status quo more unsettling.
That doesn't sound like a guy with a bad back. That sounds like the guy who spit out his gum yelling, picked it up, put it back in his mouth and kept right on yelling.
Go get em Thad!
12 and 7 is a little more realistic. And that would be a huge benefit to this team.
Great points. I agree with most everything you said. I would also add that I like the direction that recruiting has taken. Thad seems to be putting the recruiting focus back on Ohio, and especially central Ohio. That has always been a good formula. If he regularly gets the best players in Ohio, OSU will contend for the B1G and be a tournament player.
This fact makes his statement highly suspect.
Honestly, I'm surprised by the negativity here. True, DAR is far from a finished product as a player and as a person, but I don't think he did anything that bad.
We love LeBron today but he announced his intention to leave Cleveland in a made for TV event - he had some growing up to do too. Let's let DAR grow in his own way.
Not a Kees fan. He's got great tonality but his mistakes during a broadcast are mind boggling.
I go back to Marv Homan and my favorite OSU play by play guy was Chuck Underwood. His "Touchdown Buckeyes" calls were amazing in an era where maybe two games would be on TV. Of course he was history once WBNS put a stranglehold on OSU broadcast rights.
Ah, the old days. :)
I think players from the past would tell Mike Conley to get paid as much as you can.
Well played, Mr. Conley!
OSU signed three Ohio players in the last cycle and has commitments from K Wesson and Goodwin. Matta is definitely focused on Ohio players and is doing just fine.
OK, I'll call you crazy. No way did Urban Meyer care more about players getting drafted than winning an NC. That's just a crazy statement.
A wonderful sentiment, but it actually highlights a common misunderstanding about depression. Mental illness is usually not about circumstances. Kosta may have actually found his place and still also found himself clinically and chronically depressed. That's part of what makes depression so hard to beat.
My hope is that Mr. Karageorge can manage his guilt. It's not his fault. No more than cancer would be his fault.
RIP Kosta and positive thoughts for the Karageorge family.
The clown show comment was in year one. Smith had not made an impact on the WR group yet.
Let's take your original advice and let them sign and then arrive. The rest is pure speculation.
