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

Honestly, only assholes stop you and say "Oh so you play, what position?". Clearly I don't play for said team if I'm sitting here talking to you in a bar on a Wednesday... morning.

It means keep quiet about the team.

Every is talking about how good and stacked Ohio State is, how hard they are working and how they are just going to roll over everyone. Mike Thomas is basically telling people to keep everyone else in the dark, let the opponents find out the hard way. He likes the underdog role, the whole team thrived off of it. Latest example? The Braxton news, imagine if none of us knew, including VTech and 5 trots out in the HBack role and completely dominates the game... How shocked would we all be? Now imagine the opponent's shock. Prime example is Urban tightening things up behind the doors of the WHAC. 11W had a story on it a few weeks ago I believe, too many freshman and newcomers on the team were talking about how great Miller was looking and how hard the team was working, etc. Basically it means stop talking about the team. 

My source? Thomas himself, one great night at Canes. He ended the convo with giving me dap and the #shhh in person.

Now that I think about it, I broke the #shhh. My bad!

I still think 12 starts and JT the year after this one. 

Jones will play regardless, it's either going to be as the starter or as a short yardage bowling ball (Tebow) that can also throw.

If he does start though I don't think there is a package for J.T. and he just takes over fully next year. Either way this team is blessed. Brax switching makes it even better.

No disrespect taken Hov. 

Like I said, if this was during the season, I probably wouldn't even had taken the time to post it. Just something i figured people on here, with a lot more inside information than myself, could sort out. 

I personally don't believe it, I know there will probably be about 100 more rumors that come out between now and the VTech game. Until someone I'm more familiar with (Birm, Greene, Wiltfong, etc) comes out with info, I won't read too much into it.

Five or six? Dang I must have missed that. First time I'm hearing anything negative at all about the offseason. Just figured I'd pass it along. For the record I don't believe it but the best way to get information straightened out is here on 11W.

Ehh I think Hall is perfect for the SSDE role and he still might grow an inch, can't see him switching inside. Cooper is blazing off the line so he is perfect for that Viper role. If any one switches I think it'd be Bosa. He's 6'4 and is thick like Joey but more advanced than Joey was at this part in their careers. I Little Bosa could be more disruptive than Joey just from the 3tech. I'm not a coach though so who knows. Just my opinion from watching their films.

Recruiting Services rank how they want to rank. Examples being a lot of the kids they see in person they are able to evaluate them more than ones they don't, leading to better rankings for those kids. Star ratings don't really measure heart, scheme fit, attitude, etc.

I used to really care about recruiting rankings until I saw how great the staff was at evaluating prospects themselves. Now I just trust in the Ohio State coaches ratings.

Prime example:

The staff choosing Ezekiel Elliot over some 5 star RB who committed to TTUN. That worked out pretty well. 

Comment 16 Jul 2015

Problem is I'm gonna say 90% of college teams won't allow EA Sports to use their logos, something Ohio State has said previously. Without the logos of the actual schools, the stadium layouts, etc. I just don't think I could get into it. 

Comment 09 Jul 2015

If I had a nickel for every time a kid has said this or told a reporter that Ohio State is their dream school, I could buy season tickets for football until Nate Meyer retires from coaching the Buckeyes. 

Comment 01 Jul 2015

Really wish the Buckeyes would move on from Corley and accept Mitchell into this class. Corley never seemed to ever have the Buckeyes higher than 3rd. Basically chasing two teams from the start and even after visits to Columbus he still seemed like OSU just wasn't a good fit for im. Mitchell on the other hand long seemed to want to be a Buckeye but the staff was and still are busy chasing Corley and NCM. Mitchell could be a really good WR or Safety IMO but I'm not Urban of course.. 

Also it wouldn't hurt having another Jersey guy in the class to make the transition to OSU easier for Gary this year and that elite 2017 DT Bolds that's teammates with Gary now next class. Think all 3 might end up at TTUN and that's just horrible to think about.
