That was on Mullens. He never brought his heart or brain to Ohio State. He went through the motions for a year and left for the NBA where he forgot to go find his heart and brain and it cost him a long lucrative career. Sully had more brains and heart in his pinky than Mullens had in his whole body.

     Thad got fooled on that one but no one is 100% in recruiting.

Either way is OK with me. If he redshirts, he will have a year of wight lifting to add 20-25 lbs of muscle and maturity and be ready to take over the middle once Amir is graduated with 3 years remaining. If he cleared to play now, he can push Amir for playing time. I like the first case better to be truthful.

Lets see how long Franklin can swim upstream. He will have a lot of current going against him for a least 2-3 more years. The limited schollies  will really show themselves the next few years. If the Buckeyes put 64 on them this year, this season and next will be even tougher for PSU to look competent against us. If they have a .500 record this year I will be impressed.

Thompson got a lot of love from Thad, Urban and Braxton before the Spring Game. Hope that means "Signed,Sealed and Delivered".

 

Comment 12 Apr 2014

Matta put a full court press on Thompson at the Spring Game. He had Urban and Braxton come over and talk with Thompson and his family. I hope Trevor was feeling the love and gave Thad a signed letter of intent before he left town.

Matta is a class act that  has done the unthinkable (as of 10 years ago), made Ohio State a top 10 contender annually. Not just riding a few shooting stars for a couple good years and then dropping off the map again. Matta has made B1G championships a yearly expectation, a deep Tourny run possible yearly and 20 win seasons automatic. This along with players going pro EVERY year, future pros on the roster and McD  AA coming in regularly.

   None of this was happening BT (Before Thadd).  I am so thankful that Thad has settled in here and made this program his Legacy. As I have said before on here, there will be a statue of Matta outside the Schott within  the next 10 years.

I can't see Hoke surviving past this year. After this year his record will be 0-3 vs Urban, 0-4 vs MSU? and no better than 4th place program in the B1G. I can only hope that is OK with *ichigan fans.

Probably 2 new starters;  Russell and Lee with major minutes for Bates and Williams. Maybe 10 guys getting at least 10 min. a game.  Hopefully redshirt the big guy from Cleveland. We should have redshirted McDonald his frosh year and had him for one extra year. Lets not make the same mistake again.  

Comment 29 Mar 2014

It is like picking between a pile of crap and throw up...lesser of two evils would be a UK win.

Comment 29 Mar 2014

There is our difference maker for next season. Matta still has the magic!! A lot of top tier programs were after him and Matta landed him. We look a whole lot better on paper today than we did yesterday. Our weakness (underneath) may have turned into our strength in less than 24 hours.

Comment 29 Mar 2014

Huge "get"for Matta. I think Lee adds about 4-5 more wins to next years team. B1G title and deep tourny run are back on the table as a good possibility for next season because of Lee. Without him, we were in for a middle of the pack type of season. He will make the players around him a LOT better.

 

Comment 03 Mar 2014

How about former Buckeye coaches and assistant coaches? Tressel (SpecialTeams), Urban Meyer (QB and O coordinator), Nick Sabin (DB and D coordinator), Pete Carroll (WR), Earle Bruce(OL), Lou Holtz (RB), Paul Brown(Head of Football Operations and Co O coordinator), Woody Hayes ( HC). 

   I know I am missing a lot here but it is a start. 

Comment 10 Feb 2014

Mike will be sorely missed as a person and player. Wish him and his family the best. Once a Buckeye always a Buckeye.

Comment 08 Feb 2014

This team has turned the corner and fun to watch again. Everyone is contributing.

Comment 08 Feb 2014

Barring injury to players ahead of them on the depth chart, I think Kwon has the only outside shot to out right win a starting position for game one. There are two UFM classes ahead of this one to beat out.  That's a lot of talent (now with experience) to beat out.

That was some fine reading and highlights. Thanks! There is a special place in Heaven for Ted Ginn Sr.  He has impacted a lot of lives in a very positive way.

I am not a fan of change....but for Eleven Warriors, I will make an exception. Go Bucks!


 

Comment 15 Dec 2013

Dead on. I will always believe in and love coach Tress. Any one who has had to coach 16-22 yr old young men will understand the difficulty of working with this age group.  To not just go for wins but to mentor them to be winners in life as Tress has is a very rare breed.
