Clean shaven - Couldn't grow a beard or even a mustache if I had to !  (I'm in my 40's)

I thought this was kind of interesting ...

"I’d say two standout; Ohio State and probably Alabama,” he added. “I have a great connection with the Ohio State staff and I loved my visit to Bama last month. The staff and the facilities were just amazing.”

What coaching staff does Watts have the best relationship with?

PROBABLY Alabama ?

Saw this on another board, and couldn't have said it better myself.

Dean sat out his entire junior year in HS with a knee injury from a game as a sophomore. He played his senior year and then decided, at our encouragement, to enroll early at OSU. THEN, he played prior to enrolling, in a HS championship/exhibition game, in which he reinjured the knee.(no one knows what the injury was for certain, but Dean at one point was tweeting about looking for someplace to do a meniscus replacement). This was in the fall of 2014.

The NCAA prohibits schools from medically examining prospective students/recruits until they are officially enrolled, which took place in January 2015. One week after Dean was on campus, he was evaluated at OSU for the knee , and was told he would not be medically cleared to practice with the team and would not receive a future medical clearance. He was offered a medical hardship that would allow him to remain on full scholarship at OSU and earn his engineering degree. In March, OSU announced that he was not cleared and would not be cleared, had been offered the scholarship, but that Dean wanted to pursue other schools and OSU had agreed to give him a release from OSU after the semester as per NCAA rules, so that he could begin contacting other schools.

We have no idea if Auburn has seen him in person to evaluate him. They have apparently given him the option of enrolling at Auburn per his tweet with a consideration of playing for their football team. If they determine that he can play safely according to their standards, then he'll likely be on the team. He may have the same risk/reward he had with us, if he enrolls and they find he is not going to have the knee stand up to D1 play, they may offer him a hardship and he can earn his degree. Or they may play him for a while, and if the knee doesn't hold up, they can do the same thing.

Our doctors may simply feel that based on their experience, the knee is too fragile for playing, and they would not agree to clear him to play for OSU, removing the responsibility of permanent disability off of OSU. Auburn's MD's may be more optimistic about the knee, and not as concerned about liability, responsibility, etc. It's a difference of opinion.

If he truly had been simply burned by OSU, with the knee as an excuse, 1. Dean would have said something about it 2. Auburn wouldn't have been the only school interested. Other D1 schools would have been rumored to be in the mix with his talent.

I guess I just realized Joey's composite rating on 247 sports was 4 star with a rating of .9809 and Nick is a 5 star with a rating of  .9947.  I know you really can't put too much into stars and ratings, but knowing the beast Joey is, I think Nick is gonna be REAL GOOD !!!!  Can't wait till he gets here !!  Really hope we see the Bosa brothers play together in Scarlett and Gray !!!

I give you props for stepping up and facing your problems head on.  I think we all have demons that we deal with.  I once heard that life is 1% of what happens to us, and 99% of how we deal with it.

I put this in the other forum and it goes here too .....

It's unfortunate the way things have played out, but it seems like there is a lot of butt hurt going on, and Mike Weber is caught in the middle of all of it.  Unless you are one if the parties involved (Weber, Meyer, Drayton, Harbaugh) all you can do is speculate about what was said by who and when.  Social media today can turn a spark into a forest fire.  I'm sure through the process a lot of things are said, or not said, everyone has an agenda.  I'm sure if Mike Weber feels that he was truly deceived that he would explore whatever channels he could to back out of his commitment with tOSU.  I'm sure if Mike Weber truly believed that scUM was the place that was best for his football career and education he would have chosen them.  Mike Weber chose to go to tOSU, why, only Mike Weber knows.  The past couple of days the situation surrounding his commitment has gotten so ugly because everyone is trying read into a few words that are dropped on twitter.  Mike Weber isn't any different than any other recruit, they all have different sides trying to convince them what is best for them.  This whole thing has gotten so blown out of proportion partially because of the rivalry, but more so due to social media.  Is Mike Weber having second thoughts about his commitment ?  I guess no one but Mike and his family really know.  If he is I'm sure he isn't the only 17-18 year old kid that just made the biggest decision in his life is thinking.  But I really think everyone should move past this and let it play out as it will.

Joey Bosa lines up at tight end and catches a TD pass in the red zone because the Oregon defender is afraid to cover him.

Comment 06 Dec 2014

He must not have seen this !!!

Comment 06 Dec 2014

Fear of spiders is called arachnophobia, fear of tight spaces is called claustrophobia, and fear of Joey Bosa is just plain logic.

Comment 05 Dec 2014

Joey Bosa once bitch slapped Chuck Norris !

Comment 01 Dec 2014

Last year when Braxton went down Kenny G stepped in and did pretty well.  In the spring Cardale and JT were neck and neck for the starting nod after Braxton went down.  JT stepped in and did even better.  Now that JT went down, you have to believe that the coaching staff will do everything possible to prepare this team, and this quarterback to beat Wisconsin.  UFM and his staff has a good offensive system, I think Cardale will step in and do just fine.

Good read once you decipher all the garbage !  Loved the comments he made about Coach Johnson, could be one of the deciding factors.
