I don't like speaking negatively of a high school player, particularly one not even associated with OSU, but after watching Gardiner's tape it took a Herculean effort to catch any of the lame duck basketball shot passes from his quarterback so Gardiner's stats should not be a negative prognostic indicator of future success.

I like this offer. He's raw and will need to work hard to see the field but his ceiling is sky high based on his frame and speed. I'd rather take a kid that has a high ceiling with great speed in a class like this that has Grimes as the polished receiver ready to contribute early.  Even if we can develop him into a one-trick-pony for fade route deep balls (the Devin Smith position which has been very sorely missed) it will be huge for the team.

I'll be shocked if Myers starts as a true freshman at tackle. Guard I can believe, but Prince had a year to get ready to pass block and still struggled. Going from guard in high school with limited pass blocking experience to tackle as a true freshman would be very difficult.

I think that was Tim Beck and Bo Pelini. I doubt there is much overlap with the current coaching staff.

I'm comforted by the fact that last time we lost to Clemson we won the following National Championship. 

Given the disappointment in the back up guards, and Prince's pass protection, I wonder if moving Prince to Price's spot as he slides over to center is an option. Prince is tall for a guard but so is Jordan and that was generally fine. That way we can get Pridgeon in at tackle (unless Bowen beats someone out). Obviously there is a chance one of our two five stars will be able to follow in Jordan's foot steps but shifting may be a better solution assuming Pridgeon lives up to the high expectations.

He clearly stated it was from the previous time the two teams played. Also he never claimed number six was peppers, just that atrocious tackling was present making peppers look good as well as that Rutgers runner.

If he can manage to not drink while working for Saban I'd say he has it well under control. That's like playing a game set on the most difficult setting.

I like how we have time to grow up once we get through OU. Army through Maryland will be an opportunity to develop depth and experience. 

Iowa will probably be the trap game similar to PSU this year.  They will probably lose several games before they play us then come out swinging against us because everyone wants to beat OSU. We will have just come off a big revenge night game against PSU and it is hard to bring your best stuff two weeks in a row.

Maybe we can hire him as a behind the scenes, non-coaching, advisor role.  That could work for at least a year or two before we either promote him or he gets hired away as a coordinator elsewhere.  Alabama didn't even wait for Sark's hangover to feel better before snatching him up.

When Brian Kelly pulled his NFL ripcord and left Eugene, Boise State coach Chris Petersen held interest in the job.

I think you have the wrong Kelly there. Brian Kelly is the one who has had a few flashy wins but falters in the most important games while he tries to micromanage everyone. Then again, maybe there is no difference after all. 

Hoping today is a 10 star day.

So they're expectation is that the committee will take both OSU and UM over the winner of the PSU UW game because of head to head match ups even though the conference champion will also have two losses?  Seems very unlikely. 

Comment 18 Oct 2016

Hearing that this young team wasn't hanging their heads or pointing fingers but was focused on correcting problems at halftime after two quarters like that may be the single most encouraging statement about this team yet.  Though it's less fun for the fans, we got a lot more out of our win than Alabama got out of trouncing the Vols  this week.
