It will be really interesting to see if anyone else does not get spotted at spring practice when the press is allowed to watch. I don't mean to be a pessimist but I think there will be one or two.
So there s a fast wide receiver AND his last name is Eagles. Sign him up.
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.
If they were going to break one I hope it was one of the newer bed pan edition trophies.
Now I'm starting to wonder if it was an accident at all.
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 hope Gibson gets another chance. I don't claim to known all the facts but if what I think I know is true, he's suffered enough.
I think adding Chip would end up with too many strongly opinionated individuals at one time. It might be hard to have an identity which is the last thing we want after this year. I'm all in in giving Wilson control with others just adding suggestions to be taken or ignored as he and Meyer see fit.
I was thinking that Haskins would be benefited by Wilson's arrival more than any one other player.
The key piece Wilson brings that Meyer needs is that he has successfully operated a spread-to-run O w/o a running QB
It'd clear the way for Wilson installing Dwayne Haskins as the next Buckeye gunslinger.
It sounds like Ross and DJ agree.
He may still take a medical redshirt for this year.
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.
The longer Urban is here the more of his players he will have available as their NFL careers end and this new practice should become even more helpful.
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.
If you could then any idiot could have 100% accuracy.
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.
He seems like a great talent and I wish him luck.
Really a stretch but maybe Darnay Holmes is thinking OSU and is pushing Bolden out.
This is too good to be true. Until the deadline is passed the pessimist in me will consider him gone.
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.
I assume both Hill and Jones were in on the same plays on special teams so they had to change a number.
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.
