New England Patriots. Was never an NFL fan but I kind of followed Katzenmoyer's career and just stuck with em. He's also the reason I started following Ohio State football. Was in fifth grade and when exposed to the majesty that is Buckeye football at such an impressionable age a lifelong obsession was born.
+1 for the Major League reference sir!
Went with Elliot, another year in the system and weight room and he could be ready for a breakout year.
Lock down Ohio and then cherry pick some of the best players from across the nation. Recipe for championships, and Coach Meyer is making it happen.
I think McMillan will start vs. Navy and never look back. I think Webb will really challenge for playing time. I know I for one would rather suffer through the growing pains of a younger player than watch experienced guys get burned game after game. Just sayin.
No sir. Thank you. All of you glorious bastards for all that you do.
Seems like a great young man. Hope he lands that dream.
I don't know which of these dudes is gonna get the lions share of the carries this year but the competition should be fun to follow this spring and fall. I hope they push each other hard to be the best and we end up with a freakish stable of backs. But gun to my head gotta pick I'd say EZE will probably be the one seeing the bulk of the time. Not sure why just going with my gut.
I'm cautiously optimistic. The year in Arkansas makes me a little nervous though. Hopefully the play calling situation gets cleared up so at least we know at whomevers feet to heap the praise/blame. With the weapons we have coming back on offense even an average defense should be good enough to play our way into the playoff.
Hey, at least it's not crack!
Buckeye fans better find your shades because the future is extremely bright. The young talent on this team is unbelievable. Joey Bosa will be a premier D-lineman before his Buckeye career is over and Urban is bringing in the top shelf talent in droves. These last two games really stung but I for one have never been more excited to be a buckeye fan. One of the announcers at the army all America game said it best "if you're going to buy stock, buy stock in the Ohio State Buckeyes."
I'll take Hyde everyday. Best since Eddie.
I would like to see Shazier stick around another year. Go down as one the best LB's in school history and lead us to the promised land. All well imparting his vast experience on our younger linebackers that will hopefully include Raekwon. As for Bosa, I hope he's got a real good pair of shades because his future is looking really really bright.
Agree completely with the hun. Hope Hyde has a tremendous career at the next level. He deserves it.
I have now fully embraced our heel role in the professional wrestlingesque world of college football. So lets beat sparty down with a chair and then go all mick foley hell in a cell on FSU. oh and Marcus Hall is a pimp. Go Bucks!
It's just unfortunate that we don't get the respect we deserve. Our recognition may be coming but we might have to leave the big ten for it to happen. Hard to get props when girl scout troop 242 could beat half the teams in our league.
I don't think there will be much of a talent drop off from Bryant to Brown and that's not to say that Bryant isn't a stud because he is, but that Pittsburg Brown has got the skills to hit the ground running. Only thing that worries me is just losing the experience and vocal leadership on the field. Wouldn't mind seeing Bell get out there a bit too. Some good experience this year will pay off in the future.
Even watching on TV the atmosphere in The Shoe was awe inspiring so I can't even imagine what these recruits were feeling on the sidelines. I love how the staff has turned these night games into a recruiting bonanza. Love to see the current commits working on these undecided guys too. Hopefully the Buckeye faithful will make The Shoe even more raucous when Penn State calling because a little part of me will die if I don't get to see Raekwon McMillan in the scarlet and gray for 3 or 4 years. As always great article. Although you may be solely to blame for me turning into a full blown recruiting junkie, but thanks for the fix anyway.
And do it quick before Saban gets wind of this.
Does the coaching staff know about this Mormon thing? Forget Georgia and Florida we better set up a pipeline to Utah.
I think working Kenny G in occasionally could work really well as long as Braxton is confident that he is the #1 guy. We don't need him putting extra pressure on himself because he thinks he's one bad series away from being benched. Don't get me wrong I'm a fan of the Smooth Jazz but Braxton is just a more dynamic player. I hope he's ready to roll this Saturday and puts an end to any doubt that he's the man.
Kids only 2 and he's already smart enough to know to stay away from scUM. Wouldn't get any milk and cookies with Jabba the Hoke around.
Apparently I'm slow on a keyboard.
He said in the article that he's tried to apologize to the other player and that he doesn't want to hear what Jalyn has to say. Sounds like a good kid that just let his emotions get the best of him for a split second. Hope he can learn from this and become a better player and person for it. The hotter the fire the harder the steel.
