To be totally honest, Eli Apple and Vonn Bell had slow starts (think Cincinnati) and both became solid with reps. Gareon did not have the wiggle room, that Vonn and Eli enjoyed, to learn against Michigan State.

But I have to say, I did like what I saw last year from Erick Smith and Damon Webb. I think our 4 deep is in good hands for the foreseeable future. 

 One other thought concerning the suspensions. Next year we will see a lot more rookies starting than we have against Va Tech.  I am not worried about the defensive backfield.  Last year we had to break in two new starters. We will be fine.  Now the defensive line, that is another question. We lost a lot of guys that played the D line last year and they're going to have to be replaced.

Bucksince79: Amen!

Vonn Bell and Apple are two of the best tacklers I have seen in the OSU defensive  backfield in sometime.  In the sugar bowl Eli was sharing coverage with Doran on Bamas # 9  irregardless of what the media was reporting. If you are worried about Apple our secondary is in trouble.

First of all "Just WIN baby!" 

I bet Urban is really excited...

 I know I am excited. For openers we have had 6 new starters, a new OC (huge), a new QB coach (not so huge) and a brand new season. I personally can't wait to see how Brax and Samuels do at H, who steps up at receiver, how Tommy Schutt plays as well as his backup, the play of 2 brand new starters at DE, who is #2 RB, and how are new CB will do. Oh, did I mention QB? No concern AT ALL at QB.  I think they both play well.

Well one of the things I felt was very necessary for this year was to get plenty of meaningful reps for the 2's. But this is definitely not what I had in mind. 

Question? Does this top last years start of the season losing Braxton? I, for one, think not! Some youngsters are going to step up. And the rest of the starters will do the same. We are going to be fine.

EB, I agree with you that:

I doubt the coaches at the schools he is now favoring are head over heels in love with his comments as they relate to competition.

I think recruiting a kid and telling him "come here, you have a better chance to play than at X" is a very slippery slope. Why would I insult a kid I want? I personally would take it as an INSULT. On the other hand would I want him if he fell for that? Nah, I will take a D Lee or a J Boren over a guy that fears competition.

Thank's for the tip! I am going to You tube it right now. Since I have less than two weeks, which I promised myself I would fast forward to the present and enjoy 2015.

BN:  for me, it falls in the same class as Minnesota's Big Ten coach of the year. A nonsensical title IMHO.  No one really gives a flying…

I, personally am going with the incomparable Jon Gruden's take on the playoffs: "the greatest coaching job ever".

​That picture has got to be photoshopped. Look at the little kids surrounding him. They have to be thinking "Dude, you are in the wrong line."

The one thing you have to accept about recruiting is that it will be one year before you can get these kids on campus and two to threes years, for all but one or two recruits, before they are making meaningful contributions. I am not saying it is a bad thing. It is just part of the process. I guess I will have to wait and enjoy  The 2015 season.
