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

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.

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. 

Comment 14 Mar 2016

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. 

Comment 23 Feb 2016

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. 

Comment 23 Feb 2016

Wade seems like that tall corner that Urban loves but I could see them all still fitting into the class even if that means they view S. Wade as a safety. (Me personally love the taller faster corners so I would prefer to keep him at corner.)

Riep/Okudah

Williamson/L.Wade/S.Wade 

Pryor is a big boy already and seems perfect for the Lee/Shazier role. So I project him as a LB. If they say no to anyone it has to be Riep even though I think he's gonna slowly climb up the ranks throughout the year and end up in the top 100. Kid can ball. If they can't take him I pray he doesn't end up at Sparty though. 

Comment 20 Feb 2016

Some of our best DTs the last few years have all been converted DE's and I don't think that's going to change. Dre'mont Jones will be the next stud DT. And I'm not giving up on Cornell yet either. Hell if he wasn't so damn good at getting to the QB from the end position I would say Nick Bosa could probably be one of the best DT's that Ohio State has seen in years. We saw what Joey did at times, just imagine Nick who is a little shorter but just as fast and explosive. Plus he is outweighing Joey by about 15-20 lbs at the same point in their careers. 

DT will be fine. Hill is gonna be a good one this year. Baby Hank

Comment 20 Jan 2016

You're basing this off of what? Williams and Weber's high school mixtapes? Because neither have played a live down of collegiate football yet. He comes in, gets his mind and body right and if he competes well then good, if not, he can always sell Michigan's secrets.... clearly they aren't working but 100-13 instead of 42-13 would be nice. 

Comment 20 Jan 2016

One thing that Urban and staff like to do that Hoke and staff clearly didn't do was to let kids know what they will be walking into coming into Columbus. They give them damn manuscripts on how to prepare and to take care of their bodies before arriving in Columbus. 

Zeke is Zeke, I'm not saying I would have rather had someone else, be real here. But if there was a scenario where both of them ended up at Ohio State, you truly dont think he would have gotten looks? He was a monster coming out of HS, didn't take care of himself, slacked off in the weight room and went into camp like 30 lbs overweight. 

Zeke rarely came out but he did need a spell every now and then. I think Green could have been an awesome back under the tutelage of Meyer, Coach Mick and Drayton. Like I said... Hoke ruined him.

Comment 15 Jan 2016

With that being said, why not take a one year flier on this kid? If you're going to have Weber who hasn't played in a game yet and who SHOULD be healthy and Williams, a true freshman coming in is always a question. IMO Samuel needs to stay at WR and be a slash type of player. Continue working on his hands and make a solid WR group with Brown, Hill and Gibson. 

Comment 15 Jan 2016

Honestly, I think his career would have been a lot different if he ended up a Buckeye. I think Hoke and that staff destroyed him. Him and Zeke as a two headed monster would have been fun to watch.
