Although I agree the schedule should be easier to navigate, one could also make the argument that it provides less margin for error. The Bucks were only able to overcome that loss to PSU because of the signature wins mentioned in the article. I'm not sure they can overcome a loss to say Sparty or Iowa next year and still make the CFP.
It's almost as great to see who DIDN'T crack the top 5 as it is to see who tops the poll....
I don't care what position Samuel technically plays, so long as he gets 15-20 touches a game. The guy has shown the ability to be electric, but just has not received a sufficient number of chances yet.
Not a good week to be a Weasel....
Ha, thanks Yoda! I looked at a few seat views online, and 205 is an unobstructed view between the 40s on the visitor side. Not sure what there is to dislike.
Driving down from Chitown Saturday morning with the fam. Section 205, row 24.
Oooooooo, that was juicy Nick! Spin me another tale.
Tremendous story, Marty? How about you stick to the sport you know, where "rubbin's racin'."
I’m old school, so I also remember guys like Ray Griffin, Tim Fox and, a bit more recently, Damon Moore, among others, who were very good.
Donte wHITner was pretty damn good while he was here, too. Pus he might've had the best pro career out of them all, except Tatum.
This was my thought EXACTLY.
Young Eli Apple = Young Marlo Stanfield.
I know the question was posed to gather differing viewpoints, but that is a pretty tough list to argue with. Each is a Senior, each is from a different one of the "9" units, and each has proven himself to be a leader.
I like it.
People sometimes forget that Stephen Collier is also on the roster (and now) as the QB3, often overlooking him to talk about Gibson, Burrows and Wallace. But the staff was very high on him when he signed, especially speaking to his football IQ. Reports since he arrived on campus have indicated that he has done nothing but come in, work hard, and learn from the upperclassmen. I think it would be unwise to completely count him out. If nothing else, he could fill that important Kenny G role down the road.
His career trajectory is quite similar to that of his predecessor at RT, Darryl Baldwin. Let's hope he fills the position vacancy as ably as #76 did last year.
Wow, Prince looks very trim!
Unless Holmes also wants in. He sounds like a "must take no matter what" type of player.
Love this attitude. Love this group. Lots of love to go around.
Beat me to it. One of the many contradictions of Chris Clark.
That. Was. Epic.
The Buckeyes also offered a pair of 2018 defensive backs from St. Thomas: Benjamin Sapp, Jr. and Asante Samuel, Jr. It's still very early to get excited about any 2018 prospect, but the Buckeyes' reputation at St. Thomas Aquinas means they're likely to be involved with these two players as well as many more in the upcoming years.
So I'm assuming the latter is THE Asante Samuel's kid, and the other is THE Benny Sapp's kid? if so, those are some unreal bloodlines on that HS team, along with the Bosa/Kumerow lines. And Cris coaching them up. No wonder they put more kids in the league than any other HS.
Born and raised in Akron. Went to undergrad at Xavier and law school at UC (I know, I know). Moved out of state when I went on active duty in 2003, and haven't lived in OH since. Currently reside in B1G country in Chicago though.
Buckeye fan from birth, but my fandom intensified when fellow Walsh Jesuit alum Mike Vrabel went to tOSU and dominated.
Texas Tom and Dino.
Huge Bayern fan. What a match yesterday. Have a feeling they are going to draw Barca in the semis, which will be tough with Robben, Ribery, Alaba, Etc. all likely still out.
