That Stone Cold Steve Austin link sent me on about a 2 and a half hour bender of watching old WWF videos.

I heard one of their biggest selling points was the amazing fan base...

Same as Hoke. Both took schools that weren't supposed to be in the postseason, to the postseason.. Both gained national attention and are supposed to be saviors to schools in decline. End story. Yawn. I'll wait to see his Penn State product on the field before I go praising him as the next great HC.

Building a solid offensive line will take place during the summer and fall. Being a former lineman, you really need to develop chemistry with the guy next to you. You talk/scream, you have your own signals, your own verbage and it all really matters. It can't be overstated how important it is to have solid chemistry on the o-line. But anyway add that in with how ridiculously deep the defensive line is and I think that's why at times we seemed incompetent on the offensive line. I believe we have the talent and once the starters are fully distinguished, adding in how great Ed Warriner is, I believe we will have a solid offensive line. Not great at first but solid. And they will only get better during the year. How many times last year did we see a defensive lineman come through the line untouched to crush Braxton? Or a linebacker even? Maybe a handful during 14 games, I could live with that. That was all because of our amazing offensive line that had probably the most combined experience and the most chemistry in the entire country. I'm really excited for this year. The defense, even though it's the spring game and they played press the entire time (at least it seemed), could be really solid. And it's only going to get better once the freshman arrive. Same with the offensive line. Big Meech, Jamarco, and company will come in and work.

O-H!

Chris Borland could probably have cracked the 2 deep as well.. Same with Denicos Allen. And I'm not saying they need to offer every kid in Ohio, because not every kid in Ohio is an Ohio State caliber athlete, even if they want to be. But Conner seems like he is finally getting the recognition that he deserves, so it's not like I'm pleading a case for a kid no one knows about. And this situation will most likely pan out just like the past recruiting class and Brady Taylor. He will be this years Brady Taylor, hopefully. Bookmark this page because if Conner doesn't turn out to be a solid-great college linebacker, I'll eat my shoe, ala Birm the Great. But seriously, the only knock on Conner is his anger can sometimes get him into trouble. On and off the field. He has to learn to control it, not let people get in his head. But you can never question the kids motor. I hope they give him another chance because 4-6, A-B, is this kid in a nutshell.

Dorian Bell had offers from Ohio State, Alabama, Florida, Florida State and others in 2009.

Luke Kuechly didn't have an offer from Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan, Ohio State or any of the other listed. I think because they missed, they all missed. Just like Ohio State is doing with Conner.

 

Nick Conner - 6'3 225. Grew up in Ohio, plays with a chip on his shoulder. Has offers from the likes of Cincinnati, Kentucky and Boston College.

Luke Kuechly - 6'3 220. Grew up in Ohio, played with a chip on his shoulder. Had offers from the likes of Cincinnati, Illinois and Boston College. 

Let's not make the same mistake with a guy that wants to be a Buckeye. It's great to look outside the state for talent. But if there's something cooking inside your own wall of your state, pay attention. 

But then again, I haven't won two national titles so..

23 so I guess I'm in the young crowd. All I would say is I dont care how many times they wore the Pro Combats but just give me one game with the traditional uniforms each year and that's against TTUN. Wasn't a huge fan of the white on white up there this year. Actually they've done it the past couple years, busting out a new jersey against TTUN. Just not my cup of tea. I'd rather have this every day of the week and twice on Sunday..

These kids are crazy smart. And they are pretty good at playing ball. Northwestern just got a great duo. Congrats Andrew and David!

Comment 13 Apr 2014
Technically if that were the case he'd go to Texas Tech. Jace Amaro came down with 106 catches for over 1300 yards and 7 TDs
Comment 13 Apr 2014
With Knox and Jamarco coming in and Ed Warriner as the offensive line coach, anything is possible. Long summer where coaches can now work with players and add in a long fall camp... Possible we see one of the two possibly out there battling.
Comment 13 Apr 2014
We still have all summer to go with coaches actually being able to be with the players for a limited amount of time a day which is going to be HUGE and the most important Fall camp. JT to me just looked like he was overwhelmed at times. Cardale looked more focused on breaking his receivers hands than making an accurate pass. It'll all be worked out, I just think Jones stays #2 and maybe going into year 1 AB (After Braxton) JT can challenge him. JMHO.

Ha give me the players Urban has gotten over Jabba the Hoke everyday of the week and twice on Saturdays. The only player I think I would be jealous of is Jabril Peppers and I'm not because he hasn't played one snap of real college football but he's going to be the savior for Michigan right... Recruiting is the game, developing is the hard part. *See Derrick Green, Tom Strobel, every offensive lineman recruit you've gotten.

I'll give credit where credit is due. Franklin is recruiting his tail off. But it's still all about development and playing the game. We'll see how the 2014 year goes and we should go from there. He did pretty well at Vandy and I believe he could do the same at PSU. Gonna be a little tougher with depth issues I think. Truly don't think a 9 win season is too far out of reach for PSU. As for the recruits. Good for them, they are listening to Franklin and his message. As for our recruiting? It's slow but I doubted this past class and I had to take a couple laps for doing so. We have a great product on the field now and I don't see that trend stopping for a while.

I'm not sold on him just coming in and beating out the QB's we have like it's a cake walk but I'll agree he is an amazing athlete. And I've pretty much jumped on the Wimbush boat, him and Nunez would be great in this class. Torrance seems to be all Tennessee solely based off crazy Vol fans checking on his Twitter every 20 minutes, sending him pictures, favoriting and retweeting every tweet and whatnot. Some guy, yes a man, even sent him a picture of his phone background with Torrance on it. Not like in a UT jersey just a whole bunch of pictures of his face...really creepy. I just hope he watches what they do this year and what the Buckeyes do.
