I don't see anyone forcing the players to play the game.
I don't have a problem with the transfer rule that requires a player to sit for a year if they move schools. That said players should be allowed to transfer where they want and they should also be allowed to transfer at no penalty (not sitting a year) if the coach of their current school is fired or leaves.
Hyde on 3rd down more than likely gets the first down the way he was pounding the rock, making the 4th down call a moot point,
Spiels from this poll, but Gradishar would be right there too...
Any and all analysis of Johnny Fubar goes out the window the minute he starts throwing his classic jump balls back into the middle of the field when playing in many of the windy pro stadiums he is going to see. Meet Johnny Pick 6....
We have won a lot of games with OHIO kids over the years. Tressel understood this like no one else in recent times. Cooper pissed the Ohio HS kids and coaches off so bad that we lost major talent to TTUN and MSU. While I appreciate that Urban is going after the best of the best, there appear to be some talented players, Conner and Conrad, for example that could be great players and representatives of the University that are getting no love at this point. They would certainly be filling the void of recruiting others to tOSU that is occurring right now. I hope that doesn't come back to bite the Buckeyes down the road. Time will surely tell.....
High caliber prospect, Buckeye thru and thru and would be a great representative of the University. Take him any day over the kid recently offered from Illinois.
I think we get one of Clark or Hentges, but really hedging bets if we want 2 TEs.
Would've been a Buckeye by now...I don't really understand the recruiting process, but a 4 star, in-state, diehard leave it on the field kinda of guy not getting an offer is baffling to me. I won't be surprised when this young man burns the Buckeyes in a game down the road.
Excellent and couldn't have stated it better. I paid my own way through undergrad and a Masters and now I am looking at a house payment for my child's 4 year degree. I will be paying on that for at least 10 years. Athletes need to get a clue as to the opportunity that has been provided them. The education and lifelong connections are priceless.
If you listened to what Golic was saying he was arguing for the right for all players to unionize if football and basketball were allowed this right. If anyone was clueless, as per usual, it was Greenie arguing against that. As Golic reiterated, if the scholarship is considered payment making the athlete an employee as Colter claimed was the basis for the suit, then all athletes should have the right to unionize and benefit from the compensation and benefits derived.
Yah you betcha, a new pot o gold for the labor unions....be careful what you wish for "Student" athletes....
It is all going to boil down to getting these guys playing time. Matta has not done the best job of developing a bench over the years, which has cost us in more ways than one. Get these guys on the floor during the cupcake part of the schedule and let them get some experience for later in the season.
Agree, they certainly need someone who can work with them on their shooting. Craft's mechanics are horrible for a player at his level and for his position.
Craft at the line? Are you kidding me? He has missed more free throws down the stretch....clutch from the line he is not..
As great a payer as Craft has been throughout his career, he has struggled many times when in clutch moments. I have no idea why he was taking shots down the stretch, especially the last shot. A PG that can't make free throws at this level on a semi consistent basis is absurd.
You must be thinking of Smith... ADV has just about as good of a 3 percentage as Smith or Thompson in less than half the minutes per game.
I believe Sabino was another 5* who never really "got it" and he was here 5 years....
This year has been the worst coaching job that I have seen from Matta. No personnel or strategy changes game in and game out and he expects different results. Need a 3 call ADV. There is talent on this team and they shouldn't be losing to the likes of PSU, Nebraska, and a down IU team. NCAA pfft, this team couldn't even win the NIT with the way they play.
Sure sure, your school is better than this John....riiiiiigggggghhhhhhtttttt...The same school that sent their thugs out on the kickoff team to insight a fight with tOSU players......ha ha ha sure John it's your take bud share it anyway you want....
ADV and Loving on the floor please. Ross and Smith and even Ross can sit. These guys are not producing. Ross disappears all the time.
Probably the best move the Browns could make is going to the CFL.....Although I am not sure they would ever be able to compete there either....
You have to remember folks had to shell out money for the BIG Championship game a couple of weeks ago. I live in Indy and couldn't afford a ticket to the BIG Championship, let alone the cost of the tickets and other trip costs for the bowl game. Ticket prices for games, including regular home games, are out of control in my opinion.
I would put Grant on Watkins personally. I think he has better man to man skills than Roby and he has a height advantage over Roby. Burrows needs to see more time out there as well. He played very physical in relief of Grant and seemed to be in good position.
^^^THIS^^^ Granted our WRs dropped some passes that should have been caught in that game, but I still think Miller misses open receivers with his tendency to throw the HR ball more often than not.
I would truly be shocked to see a high round draft grade coming.
