Earle,
Thank you. Don't know how I missed the blog, but I did. Still trying to get accustomed to things. I guess that's what I get for trying to type and search at 6 something in the morning.

I was going to reboot the Ohio State: By the Numbers* series starting with No. 99 during the offseason. I was going to compile all of the selections for the Ohio State Recruiting Game.

I will do these when original posts get the upvote/downvote function back. The Tracker tool would also be nice to have back.

*Was going to link an article, but could not find it. Could not find my user blogs either.

Jason, I cannot imagine the undertaking it is to run this site. Thank you for your hard work and creating that link a great first step. Two more suggestions.

Two things that I'm really missing/wanting back:
1) The Tracker on the "My Account" page. The Tracker was one of the most important tools...ever. Made it so easy to continue "conversations". I understand a few people used it to downvote others, but I believe the vast majority used the Tracker for its intended purpose. Please don't punish the masses because a small minority abused it.

2) Original Post Upvote/Downvote
Why was this taken away? I won't lie, getting upvotes for a blog post or forum post is a motivator for me. I typically put several hours into my blog posts. Since I'm being honest, I used to write a weekly college football column that was carried by 1-3 Central Ohio newspapers (2005-2009). I stopped writing when my second child arrived. After a couple of years away, I decided that this site was the perfect place to make my comeback and share information with dedicated Ohio State fans. I stated it before and I'm serious about it "Money is overrated. Will work for upvotes."

Name Pos Ht Wt 40 Location School
Joey Palmer DE/NG/TE 6-4.5 280 4.8 Thornville Sheridan
             
             

Highlights are here.

Joey Palmer (2015) is a personable young man and a skilled athlete. He also plays varsity basketball, but football is his passion. Transferred to Sheridan from Groveport at the start of his sophomore season.

Health, Mr. G. I use Remy on this site to stay anonymous. I guess I'm kind of blowing that now.

Patrick, I'm not sure if you remember, but In sixth grade I always had students make a name tag that had three things on it:
1) Something that made them unique or special.
2) Something they cared about.
3) Something they liked to do.
I remember that you drew racing as one of your three topics. I thought it was remarkable that you were racing at such a young age.

In eighth grade I had students write down a goal for eighth grade, a goal for high school and a goal for 10 years from now. Again, you had racing as one (if not two) of your goals. I'm glad that you are making this goal a reality and wish you success in the pursuit of your dream.

Your Buckeye helmet was great. Since they auctioned the last one (for a great cause), will you get a new one?

Genestarwind,

As always thanks for the great information in one post.

Hopefully the McDowell family can sort things out. The last recruit I remember having this difficult of a time signing his LOI was a guy from Pennsylvania.

I Would upvote you if I could, but we can no longer upvote original posts. Make a comment and I'll upvote it for the time you took to share this information.

Comment 10 Feb 2014

KHolmes. Thanks for sharing that helpful hint. Did not see it before.

Never thought I would thank and upvote a fan of That Team.

Next there will be proof that pigs can fly:
 

It Happened

 

Comment 10 Feb 2014

The old version sorted by thread with most recent posts at the top so the "current" items would be at the top instead of what might be an old item that is no longer commented on but has alot of posts. I see there is a way to change the sorting*

KHolmes, How do you change the sorting? Looked for it, but couldn't find it. Thanks for the help.

*Not being sarcastic, just trying to highlight. Bold wasn't as bold as I wanted in the quote.

Comment 09 Feb 2014

The recent comments and forums not updating and moving to the top of the list has made it almost impossible to stay current

Exactly. It would be nice to have the Most Recent Forum Topics come back. Perhaps replace the Most Commented section.

I prefer the old set up where a new post or a recent comment would give the thread a bump.
I would also like to see more forum topics on the list. I feel like the recent posts section is pretty small now and hard to keep up with by having to work to get around. Just an opinion from a free-loader.

Yes.

I Guess I'm an Old Man Not Liking Change

So I don't sound too much like the guy above: Thank you for providing this great site. Just missing that community feeling it had. I do like the HD quality of the pictures. They certainly "pop" now.

Comment 09 Feb 2014

Great article. Thank you for sharing your experience. Good luck with your college career in the classroom and on the field.

I would not be surprised to see you working on television, or print, when your playing days are over in 10-15 years.

Dream to Reality

Thank you MN Buckeye. You can be counted on to post insightful and witty comments.

Comment 07 Feb 2014

Bassdropper,

Thanks for posting your picks, but players must be on the 247 Top 100 from 2-5-14.

8. Steven Gonzales 7. Justin Hilliard 6. Nick Connor 5. Devante Peete 3. Sh'mar Kilby-Lane 2. Darius Fullwood are not on the list and will not count.

An easy fix is to edit out the players listed above with players on this list.

Also, please follow the Sheet Selection form that I posted above.

Thanks,
Remy

Comment 07 Feb 2014

We are using players who have interest in Ohio State and are listed on the 247 Top 100 list.

Gonzalez and Nunez are not in the Top100.

Comment 07 Feb 2014

I'm curious as to why the upvote / downvote function was taken away from Original Posts?

I put a lot of time and energy into my blog posts and it is nice when they are recognized by upvotes. I know some may find it silly, but the upvotes do let me know if people enjoy reading what I'm producing. 

Comment made simple "Money is overrated. Will work for upvotes."

Comment 07 Feb 2014

It is probably me, but I can't find a link for User Blog Posts.

I liked the Tracker (had your posts and comments separated) that was in our profile on the old site. Will that come back? Made it easy to follow comments and find old posts.
