That QB room though.... It's going to be packed full of pure talent... So stoked to see how all these guys develop!
Guess he's scared of competition.
^^ Because the OSU QB room isn't loaded full of bad ass players....
Man, I need to get into whatever it is Marotti is doing... That dude is a magician. But I think it goes without saying none of it would happen without these young men having the desire to make it happen.
I make LITERALLY the greatest wings on the planet we know as earth. Roosters, Frickers, CAN'T TOUCH THEM.
For me, it's just like, who has the hot hand? Is it Samuel? Ok awesome, get him the ball. Is it Parris Campbell, ok, awesome, get him the ball. Does Dontre reach his potential and have the hot hand this year? OK great, get him the ball.
I don't like when the staff points to one particular player and says, OK, this guy needs the ball, what if you give it to him and he can't do anything with it? Get the ball to whoever the offense is working for, score touchdowns, win games. Give it to your hot playmaker and when the defense keys on him, you adjust and get other guys involved.
Thinking that "so and so" has to touch the ball can make an offense one dimensional very quick.
Mike "the gnarly" Thomas... That's the perfect nickname. That dude is gnarly.
I for sure see what you mean, and while I may not like that guy for undercutting and trying to get more for his employment, you can't really blame him in the end. You get one crack at earning a living, and while it may last a long time, eventually you're too old to work, no matter your field, so you better get your earning while getting it is good.
It's not often you get too boom, sometimes you try and boom and you get bammed, but Ohio State don't get bammed, we go boom!
I don't expect Joey Bosa to ever show up at my job and tell me to keep eating the shit sandwiches my boss is serving up and not ask for more money, or the right language to be worked into my contract, or whatever the situation is. If Bosa feels his value is better/different/higher or whatever, than what the Chargers are offering then he is doing right by himself. Get yours Bear!
Super super intrigued by this kid. He's a mammoth, and we all know Urban's stance on JUCO kids... They don't use a scholly on them if the intent isn't for them to come in and play. I love Isaiah Prince, but I think we have our right tackle here in Pridgeon... Stoked to see what he does, man the kid for sure looks the part. And I LOVE his aggression!
I think it's pretty safe to say that from the time he committed to Drayton leaving to now he's come a very long way. Stoked to see what this young man does with the ball this year.
I'm really hoping they get Okudah, and just for the sake of my own sanity it'd be great to see another pass rusher or an OLB with pass rush ability. Browning or Hines FTW... Man it doesn't suck to be a buckeye right now. Or anytime really.
For me the musts left on the board are 1. Akers (reasons listed above) 2. Grimes (positional need and the time spent recruiting him) 3. Okudah (a must get IMO, just too good and plays a position of need even if we have depth in the secondary) 4. Lindsey (same as Grimes) 5. Browning/Hines (Need a stud LB to finish up the class even with the depth we have).
If they were ever primed to take a step back, you'd have to think it's this year. But if they come out and win 11 in the regular season, win the B1G and even still don't make it to the playoff, that's a pretty damn good year. If that's taking a step back, I'll take that any day of the week. I think a 1 loss Ohio State team that wins the B1G gets in every time, but stranger things have happened.
If they don't falter this year, I can't see it happening, Meyer just recruits on too high of a level.
Hey Dudes, Ohio State Alum Nate Ebner called, and he implores you all to watch the greatest sport on earth (outside of Buckeye football), Men's 7's rugby. It's going to be EPIC! Support the team, be a hooker! In spirit anyway. Rugby!!
Gotta be one of the tight ends I would think. Warriner is going to beat the piss out of those boys, Hausman is probably the smart money, but I'm going with the underdog... Give me Luke Farrill, I feel like he's going to grind, and of the TEs that are on campus he always seems to be the one that gets mentioned like third.
A Northmont legend, congrats Kurt!
He and Von Bell in no particular order are my two favorite recruits of the Urban Meyer era. I don't often say Ohio State is "lucky" to land a prospect because it's Ohio State and the best kids should want to come here, but I feel like the program was lucky to get a kid of his talent, caliber, and mental make up. He's a beast, but he is also cerebral. What a get.
It's not easy to replace the man that invented everything, and is the President and founder of MENSA.
A largely ineffective player who couldn't crack the lineup that doesn't get his grades on point doesn't last in a talent rich locker room. See ya Dylan
I would have to disagree to a point. I think we were one of the four most talented (probably the most talented), the four best coached (say for one performance against Sparty where they had an answer for the running game), and we were deserving of all that hype.
I think what got them in the end was believing all the hype, because look what happened after the Sparty loss and a slap in the face of reality kicked in. I think there is ample proof with the Michigan and ND wins that the team was one of the four best, they just bought into themselves a little too much.
Meyer's confidence is amazing. Dude just knows he's got a solid team, yeah they're not experienced, but he knows that sometimes that talent is untouchable, and when you have enough of it anything can happen.
I quote him when I say: "We're gonna push your ass like it's never been pushed, and if there's a touch of greatness in there, how cool would that be?"
Rumble young man, Rumble!
At the B1G title game against Wisky I called a mid-20's fella in red and white suspenders in the stands a cheese eating, shitty beer drinking, sister banging, buck toothed having, smelly assed badger blowing loser. All in about 2 breaths... We were up by about a millennia at that point, and to be fair he was shit talking more than anyone in our section before the game started.... But I didn't take the high road, and it was a seriously hypocritical moment for me considering that I criticize other Buckeye fans for taking the low road in those situations. The hype, the game, and the score got the better of me.
Well... Urban isn't about to apologize for that backhanded bitch slap he's going to give Harbaugh in November. I'm OK with it, don't apologize, and then get dumped Jimmy, because you're getting dumped one way or the other.
I had so much funny stuff to say when I finished reading this about him being 0-4 against Ohio state soon, and how Michigan sucks and harbaugh is urbans bitch... But the guys last name is butt... Fin.
