Much needed. Hancock flip/flops worse than any poliician.

That said, does that really fix the problem? People still have plans on NYE, so an 8 pm kick (unless OSU is involved) isn't going to deter my plans for the evening.    Still multiple games on NYE in the future.

In defending keeping it on NYE:

We have to remember that we know what the factors were. A guy said to me on the phone yesterday Star Wars was a factor. People are trying to introduce new factors all the time. This guy said "the force was not with you, Bill!"

And this was after he vehemently defended the BCS.

Thankfully though, they finally got it right.  I'm a die hard CFB fan, but with OSU out, I maybe caught the first half of the Clemson game and then none of the Bama game.

Feel for a guy like Clark. He was the hotshot recruit who committed (and has remained rock solid in his commitment) early and did what he could to make the class great.  Unfortunately, it seems like according to the pundits (and while recruiting rankings are by no means 100%, but they DO MATTER), his development hasn't progressed the way some people would have liked.  

Maybe he proves that he's ultimately the best guy, and I'd be really happy to see that, but unfortunately at a place like OSU, you can't be scared of competition.

Maybe, maybe not. A few things point to it possibly not being a wild ride. First, typically QB's want to have something to do with the recruiting class they're bringing in.  Second, if Lindsey and Marsahll are a "package deal", then I would think the odds of a flip for both is less likely.

Playing into your theory would be that he has already decommitted once.  With that said, lots of turmoil in Collehe Station that may point to that with their inability to develop/keep their five star qb recruits.

To add, I love this quote from Hawkins from Cleveland.com

For Hawkins, though, a potential pathway to the NFL through Ohio State wasn't what got him to Columbus.

"It's just the culture and tradition they have," he said. "The hype of the whole community down there. I didn't go for the NFL. It's always been the school I wanted to go to.

"Just people knowing you're from Ohio State is a great thing. Now you add the draft in, that's a plus. Everything is good."

Obviously making it to The League will always be on their minds, but you also need guys like that.  He realizes OSU will put him in a good spot for it, but it seems like he has his head on straight.  Good luck young man.

Kellogg maybe. All were really good players, but it should for the most part be reserved for NPOY level players.  

Sully is is close but the time here may be an issue, and Silk would have most likely blown by the 3 year requirement that seems to be in place had he stayed another year.  Good for that kid, but MAN, what could've been this year

Heard about this last night. RIP "The Monster".. Also, for those not aware, he was also a very proud Buckeye.  Here's a quote from the Sandusky Register:

[Info + Help]


“When I think of Ohio State, I think of the greatest university in the world,” Randleman said. “I met and am friends with some of the greatest people I've ever known while I was there. A black kid from Sandusky, Ohio, you just don't think you will get the opportunity to represent the school that in Ohio, is the only thing that walks.”

That took STONES to call Southwest at that moment.

Side note: thanks Ramzy for reminding me that for the first 10 years of my impressionable youth as a Buckeyes fan, my biggest "win" was a tie against TTUN.

Thankfully, the world works in mysterious ways and allowed me to enjoy the '02 Championship as a Senior at OSU
