Running Back.....With our recent influx of LB talent, especially the '14 and '15 class, is Jerome Baker the RB in this class? I don't see who he's taking reps from at the LB position with youngins like Lee, Kwon, Booker, Berger (?) and Hilliard likely all ahead of him. I also just don't see Harris, Scott or Weber in this class. Tell me why I'm wrong. Thanks for all your hard work Birm!
Just started The Man Who Was Thursday. Chesterton is under appreciated.
One of the better military books I read was quick and easy but powerful. It's called Helmet For My Pillow. It's one of those books my dad kept telling me to read....for years....and as usual, when I got to it, he was right. As far as classical literature goes, I've seen (rightly) lots of references to Bros Karamazov by Dostoyevsky, but, in my feeble opinion his best novel (and I consider it a top5 all timer) is The Idiot. Don't let the title fool you.
LOVE these articles. Thanks! But I have to admit you really shocked me predicting Jerome Baker to OSU. That would be awesome but everyone else says that ship has sailed. Tell me you have intel.....that you just can't share.....yet.
So Birm, question, do you say this because you don't think they'd (Scott and Harris) mind playing together, or, because you think if we get one the other isn't coming? I would love EITHER or BOTH but I just don't see 2 VHT RBs coming into this class. Particularly because while others disagree, I still see Parris Campbell ending up at RB, likely a redshirt candidate which basically makes him a '15 recruit. It seems like Scott literally couldn't decide til last minute anyway as he awaits final grades. I have no idea when Harris plans to announce. Thanks as always. Your work is incredible!
Agreed, but I would add that I think people are really underselling Berger, probably because he got hurt and we didn't hear much from him. He has SPECIAL instincts imo. Depending on how we redshirt guys this year LB depth could be fixed for years to come
Birm, I'm tired so bear with me please....so kwon has a good relationship with kirby, and kirby is already at ala but....kwon is more likely to be a bama commit if saban leaves? I mean I think smart is good, but we're talking saban. Guess I don't get why relationship or no ala is more attractive without saban. Can you help me understand?
On the other hand I opened up the site, saw that pic and started freaking out thinking little blue had taken over 11W!! haha
If Curtis Grant isn't the answer than we need Cam Williams to step up. We lost bino, boren, klein, perkins, roberts and marcus (to a position switch). Maybe this is why we hear Darron lee repping with the LBs? I think Shaz and Perkins will be fine, but injuries strike and it could get dicey real quick.
We don't always hit homeruns with the OH parochial schools. Nabbing Hubbard and now Berger feels Reeeeeeal good right about now.
I stood beside roby and he's more in the 5'10 range. Maybe.
Alex, have you heard any more about the rumor surrounding the not so mysterious olineman that may be transferring? IMO that makes the munger/hunt/skipper scenario even MORE important as we close the class. Also, if we did lose Munger, do you see the staff pushing to get one more commitment to fill that slot or maybe bank it til '14? I think they will get 3 more no matter what, and could have Timmons if they wanted as a 4th, but miss on the others regardless of our space.
Alex, love your insights! Keep them coming. That said, you seem like the only recruitnik that is confident that Dodson flips to us. Seems like the longer this goes, the more likely he is to stay with Wisky. Is this just your gut, or are you hearing stuff the rest of us aren't? I'm guessing it's THAT one! thanks
I have the same strange feeling about Saturday. We have nothing to lose, which NEVER happens in columbus, so I'm hoping we just cut loose and play fast. No one really expects us to compete, and if there is any heart beating in those young inexperienced chests, this would be a perfect place to showcase it. We are zero dimensional on offense, granted, but Neb is merely 1 dimensional, and I think their defense is vastly over rated. If we can contain their running game, we're in it. i expect another ugly slugfest ala msu, but, we have to get better.....right?
