I had to throw my upvote in to counter as many downs as possible. You didn't say anything here that wasn't on the money. Your opinion of being over his saga is shared by many, and you're 100% correct that he loves the spotlight.
This kid's recruitment has been so strange. He was supposedly a lock to Ohio State and now he's been flopped around like a regular Anzalone. Hopefully he is where he wants to be.
Man Urban Meyer owns the NY/NJ area. Those kids like success, and it shows by their pledge to come out west.
Honestly, give me any of those, but Eichenberg first lol.
Davis has been kind of "will he" or "won't he" throughout this cycle, so it's a move I've prepared myself for for sometime now. Not a great bit of news, but not a shock either, we shall move forward.
Coupling the fact that all of our OL will be upper classmen by next year, and Decker will be off to become a first round pick, I'd say that we need all the slobs we can get. There is some serious and young talent headed our way folks.
The key difference between Ohio State have 3 QB's and it not equaling 0 and another team having 3 QB's and it equaling 0 is that Urban Meyer won't be afraid to give one guy the job, and let him run with it. The logic of numerous QB's being 0 really only applies to a team that isn't disciplined enough to pick 1 guy and let him take the reigns.
I agree with this, and it wouldn't shock me to see Demetrius Knox push really hard against Pat Elflein for that RG spot, and potentially win it out right.
I would see the OL next year as : LT: Decker, LG: Price, C: Boren, RG: Knox, RT: Jones
Elflein played well, and will go into the season the favorite to hang on to the job, but Knox is a nasty, nasty customer.
Washington gets a nod for his play obviously, but you never really hear/see him being that vocal leader. Of course he may just not be that way in the public eye, but if I saw more fire out of him on the sideline he would make my list for sure.

1. Bret "the Hitman" Hart
1. Phenominal coaching
2. Elite talent at all positions
3. Players with the right mindset to be able to "forget" when stuff like that happens.
That is tOSU in a nutshell, and it's a damn good way to live.
If Carlos Hyde had not been suspended he would be the single season rushing leader in OSU history. Damn shame.
Man that is pathetic... I would never live vicariously through another team in the B1G Ten, I don't care what bowl game they are playing in. If anyone ever catches me clapping for scUM or Sparty because they got into a good game and Ohio state had subpar year (which won't happen), and didn't take care of business, please kill me.
Give me triple digits, or give me death, I best tweet this to Urbz... where did I put his number?
It's really ridiculous to see what this kid went through this year especially during the 3....3! games that he started and won us a championship. Whether what you say is true or not, it's disrespectful to a young man who gave so much of himself to the Ohio State University, and no matter what he chooses today and what his future holds, he's someone we are forever indebted too for what he gave us. Just let the kid have his moment and enjoy it and let the chips fall where they may in his career.
40% of the time, it's works every time!
It wasn't a quote, it was scripture, and it does no one any harm. Are you going to lecture a football player who crosses himself when he scores a TD?
One thing certainly to keep in mind is anything Beck achieved at Nebraska he did with talent that wasn't to the level of what Ohio State has had over the last several years. He made players into great players while there so I think this is a really good hire. It's like give Mario Andretti a 91 honda civic and watch him finish in the top ten in some race, but give him a ferrari and see him smoke the competition. This could be a great hire.
For sure, I always like hearing Spielman's take, you can hear the pride for the Buckeyes in his voice but he's always able to be objective in his analysis.
Trey Johnson was for sure my favorite recruit from his class, and I was hoping for big things from him. Take care of yourself young man.
I think the B1G network is trying to be the opposite of what the other networks (namely the SEC network, and espn in particular) currently are, and try and not make it look like they'll pick Ohio State just because they're in the B1G Ten. What they do is basically make themselves look stupid.
Chris Webber says take a time out, IF YOU HAVE ONE, otherwise NCAA sanctions will come down on that ass.
