Lane Kiffin's family, which he traded for the head coaching job at USC after hearing what REALLY goes on at those Matt Leinhart hot tub parties.

It's good to see the new staff making TE a priority in recruiting and not slow playing them like they did with this position in the past. It makes me believe what they are telling these guys is going to happen as far as making them an integral part of the offense. We need as many well spoken kids like Mike on our roster as possible.

Exactly, and then you could go defensive by taking out Thomas, and putting in Smith or Thompson.

nba scouts cannot avoid his size and potential. he will be a first round pick. 

look at the last few drafts. NBA teams are taking guys like Marcus Morris from Kansas in the top 15, Buford is way better than that guy. 

Comment 21 Feb 2012

Start Thompson tonight over Buford then. Better to do it against Illinois than Wisconsin.

We just need to take a page out of Duke's book and get in the refs ear so we can get to the foul line late in games... Problem solved.

Great head on his shoulders. Love the fact that he considers it an honor to play of tOSU. Sounds like maybe Davonte Neal thought it was the other way around and that's why Urb and Co. decided to pull his offer. 

After the way TP looked in front of the media, it will be nice to have a kid like this sit down in front of the world and answer questions without being stumped or having to be coached on what to say and not to say.

Exactly how I feel about the player development. Urban obviously thinks Mariotti plays as big a role if not a bigger role than the rest of the staff by putting him in place from day 1. It just goes to show you that it's not always about talent.

I've heard time and time again that if you were to lineup the teams in the B1G without pads on and you had to pick which team was which, that Illinois was the only team that could hold a candle to tOSU as far as the type of athletes they had.

Ron Zook was always able to bring talent into Florida and Illinois, but once the kids got there the only ones that developed were the top cream of the crop HS kids.

Teams that have the ability to turn 2 & 3 star athletes into the caliber of players like Jenkins and Laurinaitas are the ones built for success. Case in point, JB Shugarts. He came in as highly touted recruit, and sure he was a good offensive tackle but he was rated right there with Brewster and Brewster played like a 1st or 2nd round pick since his freshman year, Shugarts still hasn't.

O'Brien is working double duty. The Patriots setup an office for him to work specificaly on Penn State stuff (Supposedly he is doing recruiting from there).
