Grind and Grit? A great post on Angela Lee Duckworth's Grit vs IQ. Yep, explained a lot about my failures as well as my successes.  A very worthwhile video to watch.

BOBG: it seems like yesterday that Johnson and Mitchell committed two days apart on Armour/Army All Star weekend. I was amazed. I remember thinking they would be playing right away. Now, three and a half years later, I don't see how any of these kid break the starting lineup. Not saying they can't. Look at Raekwon.

GO BUCKS, Bring on Virginia Tech!!

I think The Ohio State University recruiting pitch, education first, is not an empty model. I think a very high % of these kids are using football to get their education and if the NFL is in their future that would be above and beyond. You hear it over and over from our young recruits. "He, OSU recruiter, talked mostly about my education." 

Wayne Woodrow "Woody" Hayes pitched education and the parents loved it. And it's no different when Urban Frank Meyer, III pitches education to our young recruits now.

It's good to see that The Ohio State University is walking the walk.

Thomas caught a lot of slants in the sugar bowl and the national championship and turned 7 yard gains into 12 to 15 yard gains.  IMHO, the only thing that's going to slow Thomas down is an injury. Dare I say it. Thomas has the best jukes of any of the receivers IMO.  He doesn't just run the pattern and that is why I think he is so open on those slants.

I never get tired of watching the replay of Ezekiel's 85 yards through the heart of the south  Game Breaker. The fact that it was on the Ohio State's sideline makes it all the better. Just watching the coaches trying to run down the sideline with Zeke and all the players jumping up-and-down is priceless. With 3 1/2 minutes to go in the game, it surely look like game, set, match.

 Think Seattle Seahawks's 2015 Super Bowl.

NFL is a tough field.  Anyone know what degree field Chimdi was in?  Get that degree fellows.

 WINITALL:

Some guys are camp players, some guys are on-the-field players, I'll see where they put me when the season comes back around"

That was true when I was a kid. And I believe it's true now. I know Urban believes that you earned the right to play  by the way you practice. I just think with some kids, the adrenaline flows when they're in a game. That's why  every kid should see the field at some time. You may be presently surprised.

Burn,  I feel about the same as you do. We definitely are not going to get all the players from Ohio. Kudos to Michigan State. But what does upset me, is Kramer and Eichenberg going to Notre Dame. Now that hurts. I know both kids are coming from Catholic high schools and Notre Dame is a big draw for those schools.

 He looked like he was making some pretty tough catches. As far as speed goes, Gary Collins was not a speed Burner. But he sure as heck was one heck of a receiver. This kid looks pretty good after the catch. I like him.

Cal-Berkely, if you haven't made a road trip this was a great venue. Ohio State Buckeye fans took the place over. I think the Cal fans were stunned.

All this talk about the cornerbacks, I'd like to give a shout out to Kerry Coombs. The twos and threes look pretty good also. I think we're pretty solid at cornerback for the next couple of years.

SON:

I think that the two were flipped was an attempt to increase Bennett's defense's draft field position. 

I almost agreed with everything you said,  so I took the liberty of modifying it.
