Maryland is a passing offense earlier in the year, Minnesota is a running offense later in the year.  I'm more concerned with our passing defense than our running defense, particularly at the beginning of the year.

Yeah, but to be fair hurdles are a lot shorter relatively when you're 6'4". They're more like cricket arches at that point.

Chris Childers is a good guy. Last year when every "expert" wanted to drop OSU after every week despite us winning, he stood up for us and said we were under rated.

I like this idea because as much as OSU is now and always will be my only true allegiance, spring football gives me the opportunity to enjoy watching games and root for another team other than the buckeyes without shame.

If all underclassman stay the defense will be really good by 2015.  With fewer replacements on the offensive line, only losing Smith and Spencer from the wide receivers, we should be left with quarterback as the only big question mark.  With the last two Heisman trophies going to redshirt freshman quarterbacks, not being a three year starting quarterback doesn't mean you can't win as long as the offense around you is talented.

If he feels up to it (and doesn't win a starting job or at least a big part in the rotation), I would like to see him returning kick offs.  A healthy Clark is just too damn fast to not get on the field in one capacity or another.

It may sound crazy but I hope we have a guy like Dontre's last season every year. A good distraction is generally under rated and a great way to get a freshman's feet wet rather than have a redshirt. The key is just to have guys around him that are like how we hope this year's Dontre will be. Imagine how much of an advantage it would be to get the ball in Dontre's hands while the defense is looking at somebody else. The key is just to have playmakers at every position, which is why Urban has recruited the way he has. As for candidates for this year, the first one that comes to mind is Samuel, but since he is supposed to be more of a running back than h back, it may be someone like Cambell if he doesn't redshirt due to his young age.

So you bet your friend that if you acted immature it would cause people to treat you like an immature person?

You should be a sociologist with that keen understanding of the human psyche

Personally I think that Gallimore is almost more likely than Wilkins because he is forming bonds with fellow OSU recruits when Wilkins is not.  Perhaps we will land both considering the lack of linemen that are clearly tackles (instead of pure ends or the type that could play either) in this class and the last class. 

I have no opinion on Allen on way or the other.

Other than those two small exceptions, I agree with everything you said.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

I really liked the idea of both Scott and Harris complementing each other.  It may have been a greedy notion, but nonetheless it was appealing.  If Scott going else where improves our chances of landing Harris due to his reported (and simultaneously denied) preference to be the only running back in his class then so be it.

Also, for what it is worth, as Buckeye fans can we acknowledge that this may be a rough twenty four hours for us but not start crying that the sky is falling?  It will all be just fine in the end.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

That is a very good point.  Not to put words in everyone's mouths, but I think what surprises them about Baker is that he has a strong enough relationship with them despite only visiting once.  Also, he is committing in July instead of February, and often many recruits that go out of state due to relationships with coaches wait until later in the process.  However, I definitely agree with you that we should wish him luck no matter what he announces tommorow. I believe that we as a fan base can't expect to both land out of state talent and keep our in state talent with one hundred percent efficiency, accepting this fact will make us more comfortable when things don't go our way.

The more I learned about Tyler Green the more I thought he would blow up the rankings when he got to the opening.  I predict a fourth star will be coming soon.

Comment 08 Jul 2014

Not giving a freshman defensive prospect a defined position seems like an excellent  way to get the least possible out of the prospect by having them not know what their role is on any given play.  I don't really see the point of Hoke trying to "hide" where Peppers will play but I can't imagine being foolish enough to try to teach a freshman more than he needs to know and risk confusion.

I wish we'd combine the black facemask of the shiny alt helmets with the normal helmet for a subtle modernization that keeps tradition.
