No way that he is. Is it best for him to play right away? My guess is that is what is driving the decision.
"The Greatest Ever" will only be determined in retrospect.
"Highest Rated Ever" can be placed on potential, which is what this class has at this point in time.
Thanks. I was thinking I heard a number like 19 or 20. Best to keep the numbers as even as possible each year for continuity but understood about making room for players who you really, really want to take a pass on.
Very young overall. Top level talent abounds. The ability to learn and adjust quickly will be the determining factor in their success as a team this year. They will have to learn a lot in the first two games to be able to win the third game. Then they have week 4 as a bye to get two weeks of coaching in with some game experience behind them. There is a lot of upside and if there is continuous improvement then this will certainly be a good team by the end of the season, possibly a very good team.
Another point to consider with Bosa is recovery from the knee injury. It usually takes at least a full year to recover 100% from that injury, and sometimes longer. Favoring the injured knee can result in the other knee being injured. I'm not an insider so I can't know in this specific case. I do know making the right decision will affect Bosa one way or the other for at least the next two years.
He is the sixth five-star prospect Urban Meyer has landed thus far for 2017, and there's a long way to go until February.
How many spots are left available in the 2017 class?
Snyder was pretty much unblockable even as a HS sophomore, and nice pursuit on that one play downfield.
Not a bad football player, and wrestlers generally can hold their own on the gridiron. As a wrestler though he is the best in the world at this point in his weight class. He did make the correct choice and so happy for him.
man, few things in life bring me more joy than watching Ted Ginn Jr run.
Same here. Very few guys can break down someone who has the angle on them with pure speed. Ginn is on of them. Always worth watching him when he gets his hand on the ball.
Bravo Mr. Snyder. Thank you for the sports lessons, and life lessons, of perseverance.
Congratulations on being any Olympic Gold Medalist.
Bravo. Mr. Snyder, you represent us all well and do us proud as Buckeyes as well. May you be blessed with much continued success.
This season is why Jim Tressel will always be loved at Ohio State. First Natty since 1968. That and the Called Shot over Michigan the year before.
It takes a serious burst of speed to make those guys who have the angle on you to not be able to close the gap in time. Those are NFL D-Backs right there, very fast guys. Ted Ginn's level of sped is one notch above them. They were deeper down the field than he was and had the angle but his burst changed that to his advantage in about 10 yards, and after that it was the proverbial footrace.
That's why they have a scoreboard. It helps end arguments.
Mike Weber will be a star RB at Ohio State. Mark it down.
Notre Dame sour grapes from Theismann. After the bowl game beatdown the Irish got from those two QBs and the team they were leading, where did that put the Irish? I assume less than "just okay".
The monkey was most likely from Hocking County.
The overall talent level is above the 2014 team. Talent is just potential until you put it on the field. Get back to me after 3 weeks are in the books and let's see where we are.
I am a wild and crazy guy...
I agree as well. Very important with that type of injury especially to make sure that it is 100% healed and rehabbed. Not worth the risk of rushing back too soon.
Pete Carroll spent a year as an Ohio State assistant coach.
Buckeyes support one another. That is all.
I would not be shocked if Bosa ends up redshirting due to his injury rehab. I know the word is that he is ahead of schedule, but I have a feeling that a medical redshirt is a possibility. If he's not 100% I would rather see it happen, even if it means we only get him for 2 seasons instead of 3. Of course, I hope I am 100% wrong...

I kind of like the term blue collar for a block. You might have started something there.
I expect Weber to be a great one. He has already been through some adversity and has risen through it to be the presumptive starter at TB going into this season; that alone says something good about him.
Not JJ Watt, but an excellent complement to JJ Watt on the same defense. Houston's stock seems to be on the rise.
Good highlights from Gill. He shows great field vision. Someone from South had a block in the back on the third play though.
