Like most people, I don't know much about this guy, but reading between the lines, what this tells me is that Urban may have "encouraged" Beck to take the job at UT knowing full well he had a guy lined up to replace him that he preferred. 

Also, it's  not Chip Kelly (pipeline dream), but I'm sure Urb's got plenty of info as to what to expect from him from Chip.

I try not to be negative on this site, but, Aportis, that's nothing but a dick comment.

Danny was nothing but loyal to us throughout, and even when it became apparent he wasn't a fit, he handled it very maturely. 

Additionally, we have no idea what he will be in the pros.  Carson Wentz and Roethlisberger are two lower ranked guys that have had nice careers.  

Me personally, I'll  be rooting for the kid big time.

Thank goodness your folks moved to C-bus. OSU reading wouldn't be the same without you

Many of these guys are high 4 and 5 star guys, but I really like that what Davis said, and it seems like more and more of these recruits are (at least saying) the right things with regards to football/academics.  I'm sure they all expect to be first round picks, and some will, but I like their attitudes about it.

“I just felt like that program is definitely a program where I could truly develop as a man and as a football player,” he said. “All the stuff that coach [Urban] Meyer talks about with helping guys if football doesn't work out really stood out to me.”

It'd be impossible for these kids not to think that  they will be a high pick one day, and that should be their goal, but it really is refreshing

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.
