It seems like there are too many examples for it to be a coincidence that Ohio kids generally work out better at OSU than non-Ohio kids

I do not disagree that we've had some talented Ohio born kids slip away, but that's a function of a basketball program and only being able to take 1-5 players per year.  I also do like the focus on more Ohio kids, but you cannot discount the impact of the out of state kids (Oden, Conley, D Thomas, Turner, Dangelo Russell, etc).

Please don't DV me, and while I have no ill-will to the CBJ, I just wish they had been around during my earlier years developing my fandom.  As a native clevelander, I enjoyed hockey, and my only alternatives were Pitt or Det.  I chose the one not more closely associated with TTUN, 

Having attended tOSU during their first years in the NHL, I really tried to care, I just couldn't get those feelings going.  

That said, I wish the CBJ the best and the new site. Maybe I can finally get around to loving the openly NHL team the OH

He's one of two Buckeyes I was realistically hoping the browns would get (Michael Thomas being the other, with Zeke and Bosa most likely being too high to draft at 2 with so many holes).  Glad we could at least fix one of the two wrongs.

I always loved Musberger, but it may have been more of a function of being someone in their mid-30's who grew up for a lot of my life as him calling some of the biggest games than him being a great play by play man.  When he got moved to the $EC network, you could count me amongst those that weren't too happy about. 

The call for "holy buckeye" is one that I can't get over watching, and so many other great OSU/TTUN games with his play by play.  

Great, good, or bad though, he had a hand in watching some of my favorite games as a young adult.

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.
