"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
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.
His "unfair advantage" stems from being the son of a complete genetic freak. The other stuff helps, but that's the short of it.
Remember when we were stressed that we wouldn't have enough spots in '17 for guys like Trent?
That's really too bad. I'm a big Matta supporter but this is a bad look with it being the 2nd transfer this year. Additionally, it really seemed like he has potential to be something good.
Regardless, good luck to him
How did that deserve a DV?? I'll cancel out for ya bud
A bunch of fancy words to try and convince us that he's smart, yet so little punctuation.
The B1G has really outdone themselves. Worst idea since "Legends and Leaders"
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
He didn't thank Titus???
The camera work on the retirement ceremony was awesome. Come to think of it, MUCH better view of everything with the cell phone than the lame court side camera angle they were giving us all game
Careful, The NCAA may be watching. Start handing out valuable things like 12th Warrior memberships and it may be considered an improper benefit to win the favor of a recruit
I'd give 10 UV if I could for that one...
Any Randleman moment of silence/tribute?
keep up the good work Curr!
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.”
