Collards, did you have mention Eldon Miller. You took me back in time when we were cheering ourselves hoarse at St. Johns and so hopeful about our Buckeyes with all that talent: Kelvin Ransey, Herbie Williams, Jim Smith, Kenny Page, Carter Scott, Clark Kellog, Larry Huggins, Todd Penn, Denis Hopson, Brad Sellers and the list of talent that Eldon had available goes on and on. However, Eldon was out of his league and simply couldn't coach the talent.

IIRC, Weber had this notion that by going south to TOSU, he won't ever get job in Detroit, that was corrected by his phone call NSD eve.. If true, I can't believe Wilcher was not aware of his star RB entertaining such thoughts. Irrespective, what did Wilcher, who claims to have his players' best interest at heart, do to correct Weber's thinking? Evidently, nothing at all.

I don't expect any high school coach not to try to steer his best players to the university he played at. Particularly when that high school has been the traditional pipeline for his alma mater that is now being coached by his teammate.  But, does anyone really think Wilcher would have reacted this way, and acted like a drama queen, had one of his players committed to TSUN then wrote a similar tweet after his position coach left the next day? No, Wilcher has jumped on this issue, IMHO, to 1) stem the tide of Cass Tech players going to TOSU and 2) to sway the narrative from TSUN coaches telling kids Weber's age they are not good enough to get admitted without a football scholarship and other recruiting screw-ups done by TSUN staff.

My nephew, my only sister's son, is a senior at Oregon. I accompanied him to Eugene for his move in. Honestly, I have to say I fell in love with beauty of Eugene and the state of Oregon. Thus the Ducks became my second favorite college team.  

Before the semis we both wished each other good luck. I was elated at their win over FSU and he messaged me that he really wants us to beat Bama. 

But, would I mind if Ducks won? Is the Pope catholic?  Of course, I would mind - no I would hate it!

Tomorrow night, I expect him to be sad - no problem he is young and will get over it - and I, to be ... something beyond ecstatic.

BTW, he applied to tOSU but didn't get a response before Oregon, Miami (Fla) and Colorado told him he was accepted. As the moneybags paying his way through college, I nixed Miami ;-)

A long long time ago, and after one too many nagging injuries, I was told I had pre-mature arthritis in my knees and needed to give up soccer. Needless to say it was a gut wrenching decision taken partly by me, partly by the overwhelming pain and very quickly by the loss in form. So I guess can commiserate somewhat with Trey and from a 57 year old whose knees still ache, say it was a wise decision by this young man.

What I find inspiring is the fact that he weighed his future health more importantly than the glory of the moment and shows a maturity beyond his years. However, I am not surprised as I notice that traits of intelligence and maturity are common in this team - I think Urban and Pantoni's recruitment vetting process looks for such traits in our recruits.  Finally, I really do believe that this an important factor in this team overcoming all the obstacles thrown at it this season and now stand at the brink of a National Championship.
