I care entirely too much about everything Ohio State. Football, basketball, recruiting, everything.

I always lol at the players who are "fierce competitors" but would rather go to a place where there's less competition and more of a chance to see the field early. 

I would rather go to an Ohio State, Alabama, Clemson or Florida State before I go to Penn State... You going to sacrifice winning/being relevant for starting your freshman year on...

I'm interested to see that if the 5 best OL include Prince and Pridgeon, one of them move to guard. Highly unlikely but still you can't sit a potential starter just because he doesn't fit the guard role... Completly thinking outside of the box: with Pridgeon being a big boy, 6'8? and same with Prince 6'7, I could see them being bookends and Jamarco sliding to guard. 

Pridgeon/Jones/Elflein/Price/Prince = whoa

Realistically?

I think the Weber/Samuel combo is going to be a pretty nasty one. No one will ever be as complete as Zeke but don't think the run game will drop off that much with these two combined. Add in Dontre and possibly Demario off the edge and I'm not too worried about the run game. The pass game needs to step up big time and the WRs are really gonna be needed this year. That's my concern

I love LeBron and think yes he should be the highest paid player by far but I mean does he really need to be!?

LeBron had 90+ million before his 19th birthday. Had made hundreds of millions of dollars throughout his career and just signed a LIFETIME deal with Nike worth over a BILLION dollars. I don't think it's crazy to think LeBron could accept significantly less these next few years, maybe bringing in some quality bench guys. I know it's different in football but I've always wondered why guys who are making millions in endorsement deals and have had huge contracts throughout their NBA careers wouldn't take a league minimum for a year or two or in their last few years to try and bring in quality players to help them cement their legacy. Unless Bron is trying to set up his future grandkids' grandkids I don't know why he needs a max contract. 

If I was LeBron or any other superstar and I wanted to cement my legacy as one of the greats if not THE greatest in my sport, I'd take less money, pay the good young core of the team, go out get some solid rotation guys (not superstars) and stack my titles on the way to becoming the GOAT.

There's also a handful of Cass Tech guys that any other year could probably end up at Ohio State that won't this year because of tight numbers. Unfortunately they'll probably end up at Michigan... with DPJ. 

I think he knows what he's doing playing to the crowd and fans. Ohio State has a huge following on social media and kids live for likes and retweets nowadays. He has never tipped his hand before and all of a sudden he's tweeting more and more about the Buckeyes, seeming like they're the favorite. I want to believe that Urban and Co could snag Grimes/DPJ/Lindsey but I just think it's too good to be true.

Boston College was 0-9 in the ACC. I'll be afraid of Peppers and Don Brown when they play the big boys. Unfortunately Michigan is gonna feast until probably the MSU and OSU games cause their schedule is weeeeeak. Like no really look how bad it is

If Ohio State handles business with a relatively tough schedule, we could see a #1 vs #2 matchup in the shoe.

I want to believe you but I'm pretty sure every single elder family member he's had including his parents went to UM. 

Ohio State was his first offer and I think that's in the back of his mind but ultimately he goes to UM. But I'd love to see him in Columbus for 3-4 years. He looks college ready right now. 

Comment 29 Mar 2016

Man I just don't see how the basketball program can bounce back from this. I mean how are we going to replace around 8 PPG and 4 RPG!?...

Like JJ Sullinger said, this place isn't for posers. Wish them all the best of luck but if you don't want to be here then maybe you weren't the best fit anyway. I feel like I can speak for a few of us fans in saying we want kids that actually love this university and want to play here, not ones who pout about playing time. To be completely honest, you have to be damn good to come here and play a lot as a freshman and you have to be even better to START as a freshman. Not everything is gonna be handed to you. 

Good luck guys, thanks for the scholarships back. 

Comment 25 Mar 2016

It's not that I don't like Martell, I really like his game actually. Great player and seems to love Ohio State deep down. I was more looking at it as the class already has a QB and if this is going to be a generally "small" class of anywhere between 18-23 guys, with so many highly ranked good players at other positions, do we really need two QBs this class?

Barrett for another two seasons, then you have Burrow, Haskins, Collier and Clark. I really like the potential of them all, truly. I guess the point I'm trying to get across is if it comes down to it, in this class, you have one more spot, would you rather add another good QB or another good corner, tight end or DT, etc. 

Comment 25 Mar 2016

I'll be that guy and say right now, I still prefer Danny Clark. 

Kid has never wavered on his commitment, has been an amazing recruiter, always seems to want to get better and never stops working. 

I think the injury and system he was in at Massillon affected his ranking on these sports sites. I think you'll se him rise slowly but surely.

Let's see how this season goes before we start clamoring about the new shiny toy, Martell. Danny Clark is still the Ohio boy and in my mind HE is the one committed to this program and the better option right now.

I agree Zeke had a better collegiate career but like I said Gurley is a freak, came back and had a string of games, I believe 4-5, of over 120+ yards while like I said running behind the Rams offensive line and having torn his ACL the year before. 

I will say this though, if Zeke gets drafted by the Cowboys, he will win ROTY and quite possibly have a better rookie year than Gurley but again, we don't know. I watched TGIII run all over the Cardinals ridiculous defense and then the next week do the same thing to the Packers and that was enough to sell me. He is a man out there. I'm hoping Zeke does the same, especially since if he's a Cowboy I'll be taking him first round in fantasy.

Yes I'm wearing some scarlet and gray goggles right now.

I absolutely love Zeke but do none of you watch the NFL?

Gurley was an absolute godsend for the Rams and won rookie of the year while running behind St Louis' garbage line. The kid can ball and we have yet to see Zeke go up against guys in the NFL. Yes Zeke IMO by far was the better running back in college but outside of the leg incident before the MSU game, he was relatively healthy. Gurley rarely was. The man tore his ACL and won rookie of the year. I'm not saying he's better than Zeke but you certainly can't say Zeke is better than Gurley right now as EZE hasn't played a down of professional football.

I will say this, Gurley is fragile, getting hurt again this season and Zeke seems to be able to keep pushing and could easily handle a250-300 carry season. After their careers are over, I'll take Zeke. It's hard to come back from multiple injuries especially as a RB.

Let us have this comparison at the end of this upcoming NFL season.
