Beth Mowins - " Two of Ohio State's electric freshman: Solo Man Trulia-Puppy and Pelé Goatee"

Be honest, none of us can keep the Poly-syllabic names straight without looking them up every time we write them.

Like posting this in recruiting threads:

OK: Hella creepy "this 5-★ has me hot & bothered" gif
Not OK: Innocent jiggle gif

Semi-O/T, but this seems as good as any thread to ask:

What's the best Twitter account (apart from 11w writers) to follow for pure OSU football recruiting news? I've been following Alex forever, but in the last year it seems like 3/4 of his TL are retweets of recruits posting stuff like "blessed to announce East Bismark State offered me a full ride!"

Don't get why they would hate someone responsible for 66.6666666666% of their national championships.

The best coach in UF history abandoned them after the worst season of his career, and they've been bad-to-mediocre ever since. It may sound paradoxical, but the 2 national championships contribute to their resentment. It was a long fall from that peak, and they can't process it.

(Imagine what some commenters here would sound like if OSU goes 7-5 this year, Urban leaves for a season, and then returns to coach Notre Dame to a national championship.)

...there is no place for the BuckeyeJack's of this Internet on Eleven Warriors.

You are a barbarian who misuses apostrophes to indicate a plural noun.

I'm sorry, but my party can't support your candidacy.

I didn't dislike it, but thought it could've done better in some areas.

Fools upthread who prefer those inferior dark grays must submit to your aesthetic superiority.

To evaluate quality, I think you need to compare Ohio State's X# commitments vs. Alabama's top X#. (It doesn't make sense to say their class drops in quality because they add, say, a 3-star punter after signing 21 5- and 4-star players. I removed Blake Haubeil's rating from the comparison because IMO it artificially skews the numbers.)

This is what OSU's top 20 looks like compared to Alabama's top 20:

        Alabama      OSU
avg.  0.9653         0.9503

1      0.9982         0.9954
2      0.9980         0.9953
3      0.9921         0.9936
4      0.9878         0.9903
5      0.9865         0.9870
6      0.9834         0.9800
7      0.9825         0.9783
