This really points to Slade having a good year this year. They took at least a year to develop so he should be up.

Well it's official

Damon Arnette come on down I guess.  I think I'd rather we pull a huge upset and add both Beckner and Gustin but if they feel like they have room for both Arnette and those two if we are that lucky than I will trust the coaches.

The country already knows that we have three of the best quarterbacks in the country, I hope this year we have them saying that we have two of the best running backs in the country.  Fifteen game seasons are grueling, we are lucky Elliott stayed healthy after his wrist injury.  I vote we start rotating running backs like Alabama.  The starter gets more carries (when healthy) but the back up gets enough to show what he can do and keep the starter fresh.

Personally I absolutely see Samuel as an every down back.  He is only a few pounds shy of two hundred as a true freshman.  He is pretty muscular for a true freshman and works hard enough to add more weight in pure muscle over the offseason.  Though no running back blocks as well as Elliott, Samuel has been praised by Meyer for being a surprisingly competent blocker.  Most importantly Samuel as the right attitude.  Despite being a "speed" back he doesn't shy away from contact and fights forward well.

I agree. Also it just doesn't sound like something he would say about an uncommitted prospect. Urban is more a man of action and results than a guy that talks a big game

Comment 27 Jan 2015

For what it's worth Gleitman crystal balled him to OSU today.

Comment 27 Jan 2015

After his brother started as a true freshman and some people suggesting he is further along as a high schooler compared to his brother, I doubt Nick Bosa would be affected by any recruit. 

Comment 27 Jan 2015

I can understand the live or die by every individual recruit mentality in the 2013 class because we really needed players that fit Meyer's system. Now we have great starters returning and exciting depth already in the roster so no individual miss will change much.  

Comment 27 Jan 2015

Lattimore had hamstring surgery. I think he should be good to go by spring if not already recovered. I also think the plan was always for him to play defense.  I know they considered offense but defense was a stronger likelihood. 

I doubt Reeves really factors into the competition, he's better at Nickel.  

I think it'll come down to Conley, Webb, and Lattimore as the main contenders with Dean as a dark horse. If I had to guess Conley will get the first shot in practice but it's impossible to guess who will blossom and take the job the way Apple did. 

Comment 27 Jan 2015

Both of those seem like the type of injuries that can range from annoying to career ending. Unfortunately where he falls on the scale is something we probably won't find out for a while. He seems like a great kid so hopefully he his career will be defined by his skills and not his injuries eventually. 

Comment 27 Jan 2015

New Years Eve seems like the worst possible day for the semifinals. They obviously aren't going to have the games early in the day and people who aren't die hard fans of a team playing will be at bars because that's just what people do on that night. Sure, the bars will show the game but that won't provide the ratings that they got this year. 

Plus if OSU is playing I can envision a fight about me refusing to go anywhere and I don't care where our friends are going. That should be fun.

To each their own

Comment 26 Jan 2015

Lee is playing so well he may be here one more year before the NFL. Baker may start in 2016. 

Comment 26 Jan 2015

Probably backing up Perry, but he could slide over behind Raekwon, or back up both spots. 

Comment 25 Jan 2015

Other top kids are going to flock to play with these top rated guys making it even better. 

Comment 25 Jan 2015

I'm guessing it's a wide receiver. We are set at lots of positions in this class but unless Hill commits we only have one true wide out but receivers are something that you can never have too many good ones.

Also we have been negatively recruited at the position in the past but performed well this year. Other teams used to say we didn't throw enough but with our abundance of quarterbacks we have disputed that notion. 

Comment 25 Jan 2015

As of right now they have a significant head start on both TSUN and PSU.  This year they bring in LJ Scott who is a great prospect and they are becoming more and more balanced rather than relying exclusively on defense.

I can hardly believe I'm saying this without sarcasm, but whatever team can emerge undefeated from the B1G East in the next few years will have a great chance at winning it all.  Luckily, it'll be us far more often than anyone else as long as Meyer is here to keep it all rolling.
