Trey smith will make tomorrow another 5* day for the Buckeyes. I refuse to think anyone, even Saban, can out recruit urban.
Trey smith is for sure a good replacement for morreti. Definitely hoping this one goes our way.
Plain and simple, let's get ready to go to fucking war.
I won't say Urban taught Tom Herman everything that Tom Herman knows about recruiting. I will say Tom Herman had yet, to that point, to recruit at the level Ohio State recruits at.
I won't say that, but I will say, Urban Meyer sure as hell didn't teach Tom Herman everything that Urban Meyer knows about recruiting, I don't care what state the players are in. I will always like our chances against any head coach in a recruiting battle.
These will be some interesting battles to watch.
If Malik Hooker doesn't run away with the Thorpe award, then we can chalk up post season awards being about as useful as a poo flavored lollipop.
I made josh Myers my "must have, dead if not, need it to breathe" recruit this past cycle. Once he committed I moved that tag to Jeffery Okudah.
until he commits, Jackson carmen has that tag from me for 2018. Just have to have that kid, he is a must get. Let's go Buckeyes!!
With dobbins in the fold, missing on Akers wouldn't be the worst thing ever. But with okudah, we have been his "leader" for someone now. Missing there would be a travesty IMHO
That video, and pardon my language, is every fucking thing.
All I want for Christmas is a safety from Texas, anything else is icing on the cake!!!
Watching at home I remember telling my lady, "this is a force I have never heard before out of that stadium." Yesterday was something special.
He should be careful banging on the wood paneling of his mamas double wife like that. She'll cancel his world of Warcraft account
Couldn't imagine any university in the country making anywhere near that kind of an impression today. Go bucks! Get a boom!!!
I know a guy who builds bridges so you can get your butt hurt asses over it Michigan fans?
Coombs: "why don't you try that on me you blue and yellow little bitch? You'd never cut it in my secondary son."
Bitterly disappointed? Yeeeees let the butt hurt flow through you harbaugh!!!
I say future because I would heat my house this winter with schadenfreude.
That's literary gold.
I love that the gaxe this week coxes down to strength vs. weakness for both teaxs. It's essentially our "struggling" offense vs. their doxinant defense and their "lixited offense vs. our doxinant defense.
It's basically who is going to break first? I think Xike Weber and Curtis Saxuel will be the keys to the gaxe for the Buckeyes to get the win.
Definitely agree. Lots of QBs make their way through the ranks of the NFL, pick up a little experience, then retire with little to no fanfare, and make their way to the coaching ranks. We all know he'd be welcomed back to Columbus when his playing days are over.
Credit going where it's due, that's actually pretty great, however, had they spelled out "Fuck Ohio" it would've meant more... Just saying.
I don't think he can hurt his draft stock by coming back.. That said, I don't know how much he can do to really improve it.
We know what JT Barrett can do on the field, and we know that off the field he is a natural-born leader. I don't think he's an NFL QB, unless you build your system to suit his strengths, and I don't know if anyone can do that this day and age, and if you did you'd likely only do that for a first round pick.
I think one thing that could be an X factor is the roster of QBs headed to the NFL this year. The draft class isn't that rich with talent... Or at least "known" talent. His draft stock would be a bit higher just by that measure.
JT's game is what it is, in my opinion. He's very intelligent, not a canon for an arm, and can get out of the pocket and make plays with his feet. He's just not the usual NFL QB.
If I'm a GM and I'm looking at him, I'm putting about a 5th round grade on him personally. He'd have to go to a team where he would be afforded the chance to sit and learn for a while, and hopefully learn from a great coach.
I think the decision is totally 50/50. He's kind of where Tebow was when he became eligible that first year. Tebow couldn't do a lot to improve his draft stock, but he also couldn't do anything to really damage it either. If Barrett comes back I'd think, with the youth we have on our roster, we'd have to be favored to get back into the CFP, so that may be a deciding factor for him.
I could see this one going either way, but obviously I'm hoping he keeps himself around another year.
I read all of that in a crazy voice in my head. That dude is looney tunes. Oh and fuck Xichigan.
Damn, that's cold. I know scout-teamers shouldn't have feelings, but as an OSU player I couldn't bring myself to wear that turd-helmet.
JK dobbins is more than enough of a stud to be the next great Ohio state RB. Akers would've been an excellent addition but Dobbins is a hell of a player.
