Recruiting the person first is what Tress started, Urban just took it to another level. Fitting your scheme is secondary, but necessary. Don't be like this guy...
I 100% agree with you CSU. If you made a catch on Conley, you most likely earned it and probably paid the price with a smackdown tackle. The guy is one of the most physical corners I have ever seen. He'll be right up there with Springs and Gamble when he leaves. If the defense plays well overall, I fully expect Conley to win the Thorpe award this year.
I know I sound like family, but I swear I am not. Conley is a beast
Signed, Michael's Mother.
Guessing Loving is a fan of Leonard or Duncan, as they both play with little emotion too.
I was a big fan of Williams when he was signed, and always thought "this is the year he figures it out", but sadly, he never did. I'm afraid that Loving may end up being the same way, as I've been a big fan of him too.
Shawn jinxed himself at halftime saying he had strees "covered" (basically not to worry about it), then the slip right out of the gate in the second half.
Michigan fans are estatc because of the "great" year they had in Harbaughs first. Hoke was better his first year. Michigan fans are crazy about Harbaughs "fantastic" #6 class in his first full year of recruiting - But Hoke had a #4 his first class (followed by a #2). Don't get too excited Michigan fans, lol... http://www.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=9&c=14&yr=2016
Cooper... Man, he'd probably still be coaching if only he could have figured out how to win against UM and his bowl games. That 1996 team was as good and talented a team as I have ever seen, but just couldn't move the ball against UM. Still think they should have won at least a share of the NC that year.
Wow - Alabama just passed OSU on Scout by signing 3 more guys since I posted this. Only 4 more guys left on the top 300 board...
Hyde would run roughshod on the competition if he had that Bengals O-Line ahead of him, and he wouldn't have lost the Steelers game either. Hyde is the best 5 yard back I have ever seen in my life, he rarely loses yards, in college or the NFL. Hill had 4 fumbles this year, but the most costly one was against the steelers in the playoffs. Victory was there for the taking, all he had to do was hold on to the ball.
Any ranking that includes ESPN is bias though lol.
Scout is the only girl for me, they are the oldest and most consistent throughout the years. There are only 11 players up for grabs at this point in the top 300. Ole miss can pass OSU if they pick up Mique Juarez. Alabama even if they pick up Derrick Brown would need one more guy.

I was wrong! Thank god, I was looking at 2013 lol...
1. Ohio State 25 Big Ten 4641 5 2 17 6 15 9 1 24 1 3.84
2. Mississippi 25 SEC 4495 7 2 16 7 16 9 0 24 1 3.80
3. Florida State 25 ACC 4425 6 2 15 8 11 12 2 24 1 3.76
4. LSU 24 SEC 4361 7 2 15 7 11 12 1 24 0 3.79
5. Alabama 21 SEC 4224 6 3 14 4 11 10 0 20 1 3.95
Scout moved UM up to #2... Scout is the one that I pay closest attention to, they've been around the longest, and they don't seem to favor the southern boys over any other state. They give Ohio players their due, because as most of us know, Ohio plays some damn good HS football.
Nah, that's Beck, he's probably playing Butthead plays QB Coach part Deux.
Hayes: The rules are the same for Juco as Div 1. Five years to play 4. So if he played 2 years at Nassau, he has 2 more left with OSU. If Pridgeon is all we expect him to be, he will be a 1st round draft choice and a 1 year player (assuming he has been out of HS 3 years at this point). All you need to do is find out how many years he played at Nassau and you'll have your answer about his eligibility on the field.
Saltydog: hahahahahahaha i can't stop laughing hahahahahahahahahahahaha
Big Daddy went from a mid 1st round/early 2nd to the #1 pick in the draft with an unbelievable combine. I wouldn't be surprised to see Washington move from a 2nd round to 1st round pick with a great combine.
I would have said no way to Braxton, but B1G hater Hue Jackson is no longer there (thank you football god), so now I think there is a pretty good chance. Bad for the Browns though, don't think Jackson will choose him over an SEC guy. Still mad about Hill over Hyde...
lol, I think it is!
BrutusF: In terms of rankings, yes, 2015 was his best defense (points per game ranking). It is a much higher scoring game today, so to balance this out, use the defensive rankings standings instead of just the number.
OSU was ranked second in scoring defense in 2015, Urban's 2009 Florida team was ranked 4th (2008 and 2006 were 5th and 10th).
Total yards, 2015 team ranked 10th. Urban had 3 teams ranked the same or better at Florida at 4th, 9th and 10th (2009, 2008, 2006).
Looks likes borderline targeting in the instructional shots (ala Joey on Kizer)
Jackie: I 100% agree with you.
BPOSU: It has to be the smiles they have. Hines was the happiest player I've ever seen in my life.
I agree, a 13 point lead disappeared in a matter of minutes, and no substitutions, no harris, no giddens. the team was tired and it showed. Still a win is a win
That's a bummer, but rooting for the guy, he still considers himself a Buckeye
