I thought it was weird watching an 17/18 year old work out shirtless in the beginning of that video.
I'm as smart as Tim Tebow....
I'm confused by the last part of your post. I mean Urban has won 24 straight, is 2-0 vs. scUM and has put together three top five recruiting classes (according to 24/7) at Ohio State. The B1G championships will come, and hopefully some National Championships too.
I mean, if all your saying is he needs to continue what he is doing to prove he can be as consistent as Tress, than I would agree (although I think he has the track record to say we shouldn't expect any less).
James was one of my favorite signings from 2013. I really hope he is healthy and ready to go next year because his speed SCREAMS game changer. Oh, and to stay on topic I really hope he gets his MRS, it was tough seeing his season end so soon and so painfully.
I hope we can land HIlliard, no doubt that he will be getting offers from every top program in the country (if he doesn't already). EGW is a Urban Meyer guy, if he keeps his nose clean, he is going to be a game breaker for us. Baker is a solid athlete and I imagine he will be looked at as a linebacker/hybrid guy I would absolutely love to see him playing for us in a couple of years.
My favorite guy on the list is Larry Scott, he screams Carlos Hyde to me. I love the way he runs, he has a good initial burst and doesn't shy away from contact. I like that we have a lot of fast, flashy athletes coming in. But I don't think we have brought in a guy like Carlos, and Scott would be that kind of guy.
Nick has a nastiness about him. Looks pretty good on film. Good against the run, pretty athletic. He looks lean at 6'3", but Marrotti will fix that. Would love to have him as a Buckeye.
I'd be excited for this if we still ran a Tressel offense. Seems he would be better served at Texas.
Such a good win for our guys! Hard to see them drop so many games early, but they showed up tonight against a good team and got a win! There is hope for the BasketBucks still!
Watching that last pick thrown by Brax. Man if he could have got it past the linebacker, Brown would have been to the house... :/
This is going to be an ugly game. I'm holding out hope that our offense can prevail in a shootout. Our defense will look horrific, there's just is no way around it. Our offense is good enough, and balanced enough to win this game in spite of our defense. I think Meyer would rather keep the defense off the field by running the ball with Hyde 25+ times, so the game will likely be lower scoring. But then again, our defense has surprised us in games past, albeit not against anyone near as good offensively as Clemson.
This matchup scares the living shit out of me.
You forgot to mention Tony Brown...
I think he just meant that this is the last recruiting update before he takes a bottle of bubbly to the face to bring in the new year.
Great to have him back, he is a legit deep threat for us and our offense is only going to be better with him returning.
It's all about the Benjamins, baby...
But in all seriousness, I thought Bama would pull this out. Win and losses don't always make or break the deal for a recruit, but the way a program is trending certainly does, and scUM isn't shooting for the heavens right about now.
I thought Urban's response was fine. I also thought Spencer's comment was harmless when put into context. I think this is solely about not giving any team bulletin board material. Olbermann may be a tool, but he did nail this one.
Wow. Let's take a moment from our raucous laughter to remember that no matter how bad things get, drink responsibly, and when you drink set some money aside for a cab. He's lucky he didn't kill himself, the people on the road with him are even luckier.
I guess the writing was on the wall with this one, as much as I think we all wanted to wait this one out before jumping to conclusions. But good luck to Lonnie and I think I can speak for us all when I say we wish you the best in whatever you do!
I can think of one gray box that was ten times worse....
I don't blame him for wanting to prove himself as a head coach. I just think it's a little messed up that he is doing this in the middle of the season.
I agree with you, the idea's (likely) are not unique to Saban. I definitely believe Urban is on Saban's level and they both have a high attention to detail, both are high-intensity guys from what I have seen.
Like I said, I like his ideas, and there is no denying he has had success. He is in my top 2 for current college coaches, but I won't believe that he has attained the level of success he has had without a bit of help until the accusations/evidence are addressed and investigated.
I'm probably in the minority, but I like Saban for some of his ideas only. I like his idea of "the process", and the statement about mediocre people and high achievers. Now, if only there was an explanation to the allegations of payments, T-Town Men's Wear, cars and God only know what else is surrounding the Alabama Football program, I could actually respect the man for his success.
I voted for Beanie only because I think he may have been a slightly more explosive runner. But Carlos is much more dependable (health-wise). One gripe I always heard about Beanie, was how after (seemingly) every play he waited for one of his teammates to come over and offer a hand to help him up. That said, there was no denying just how much of a beast he was. Beanie was such a great running back. Carlos Hyde is capable of the same level of beast-mode, maybe I voted for Beanie because there was more hype surrounding him.
Can I switch my vote? I don't know. They're both really high on my list of top OSU running backs. #BuckeyeProblems
EDIT: I watched this, and 2:53 is all I'm going to say.
