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.
Always wondered about that. Do the coaches tell them they are "offered" but they can't commit yet? Seems like an awkward convo. Seems to me that you're either offered or you're not
EXACTLY my thoughts. Even for an adult, 2 minutes doesn't seem like a long time until you get news like that to change your life
I'd get it if it were all Buckeyes trained by Herman, or all UT.. the combination of both is a bit perplexing
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.
Did you ever release the video of you and savage tiger?
Hartline and Boone need to just get the hell over it.
i get he was arrogant (may still be), but sometimes you just need to let things go
I need to watch this every day before I go to work.
great work. Ohio State'a video had nothing on this one... straight fire
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.
Much more mature than I was as a 17 year old kid. I sort of hope that us Buckeye fans look back on his career as "one that got away". Best of luck to you Danny.
Gold star for you sir!
"How she gone eat?"
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
I thought I was the man for my 28 on my ACT 18 years ago, and they even gave me a scholarship. Times have definitely changed but I appreciate the increase in value of my degree!
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.
Good luck kid. Will never quite understand the allure of ND though.
Not sure about the exact rules, but there had been talk that Wade was really wanting to enroll early and OSU didn't currently have a spot available for him to do so.
Will this impact early enrollment eligibility for a guy like Wade, Eric?
I won't DV, but that's like celebrating an Al Queda victory over ISIS
