OSU has never won a game in which Cornell or Princeton has played in either. http://football.stassen.com/cgi-bin/records/all-opp.pl?start=1869&end=2016&team=Ohio+State&sort=p&mingames=2
Yes, and he's a 5 star per Scout (which is by far the most realisitic and unbiased recruiting evaluators) http://www.scout.com/2017-football-commits?team=Ohio%20State&minimumInterest=Verbal
If you are a serious, but objectionable Buckeye fan, you don't need an NFL "expert" to tell you which Buckeyes will be good in the NFL, you already know. We knew Zeke, Bosa, Decker and Thomas were all going to be standouts. We also knew who the project players were, and who the solid, but not great players were. We know the players in this years draft too - We know Hooker and Conley are flat out, going to be stars in the league. The NFL experts should do a Buckeye poll as to who the fans think, will be great, good, and project players. There will be some homers, but the majority will get it right.
In fairness, they could have included 2009-2010 Sanzenbacher and Posey tandem, 2007-2008 Robiskie and Hartline, and Ginn/Gonzalez 2005-2006. We haven't had any tandem like that on the OSU team since Smith took over. Someone made a point up there about O-line and he's probably right. Tressel had five 5 stars O-lineman in his last 5 years, a Urban is just now starting to win some of those recruiting battles... finally.
Thanks CincyBuckeye. I never would have revisted this, and noticed the error. Fixed it:
"How to be a complete wide receiver" - Good stuff right there. Okudah and Victor are going to be among the best in the nation in the coming years. Both need a little bulk right now though. Glad we have Mickey...
12 WR's is just flat out crazy. Yes, I agree there is something happening with that unit.
Braxton lost the last 4 games of 2011 and the last 2 in 2013. he also lost to Nebraska in 2011, although he was hurt, and left with a big lead. That is at least 7 losses, so not even close to JT's winning percentage.
Such is the life in the Office Space of 2017. Where Cheese Pizza is no longer considered Vegatarian, and Coffee is now called Cappucino or Expresso.
Offering constructive criticism in the basketball threads is also living dangerously and a downvote haven.
He runs a 4.52, I'm not a math scholar (ok, maybe I am), but a 4.52 seems pretty fast to me, especially considering he is 6' 4".
Of course OSU is DBU, EVERYBODY knows this, and it is not because of last year, or even the forthcoming draft. It's one of those things that OSU haters don't like to talk about. It is not even close when compared to other schools.
I hate people who order those "designer" pizza's. They order 2 pinapple jalepeno pizzas, two vegetarian with olives, 2 cheese, and 2 pepperoni pizzas. The peperoni and the cheese boxes always go first, and the other 4 are mostly untouched, except for maybe a few slices of each. These vegetarians think everybody wants to eat like them, but the proof is in the leftover pizza.
I thought SEC stood for SECond?
When Hue Jackson chose Jeremy Hill over Carlos Hyde, because "He came from the SEC", I lost interest in the Bengals. Now that he is gone, I'm hoping that mistake never happens again. Jackson's B1G hating is now the Browns problem.
they give details on how the point system works. Unlike other sites, it is not a secret, and it actually makes sense. http://www.scout.com/3/about-team-rankings.html
Scout is the only recruiting service I use. It is unbiased, and does not include the SEC/ESPN ratings. OSU has 8 5* recruits, which is second to Urbans 2010 class (10), and has 13 top 100 players, which ties the record. Being #1 in the recruiting rankings this year is almost impossible though.
Dad, is that you?
On the 3 plays of your choice, I saw was a QB having less than 2 seconds to pass the ball, under heavy pressure, and could have easily completed the first two if he had time, or if the DB didn't interfere. On the Samuel overthrow, I thought Samuel took a bad angle, on TV it didn't look that way, but in person at the game, it looked that way.
I heard he was going to enroll early too. I'm not sure when Alabama starts school, but I do know Najee graduated HS on Dec 22nd. Here's a quote, I guess OSU was closer to him they they actually believed.
“I really love competition, and there’s nothing better than the SEC,” Harris said in a November interview. “Then when I went there, you feel that thing in your body, like, ‘OK, this is where I want to go.’ I felt comfortable there. …
“But I got that feeling at Michigan, too, and Ohio State.”
You're just being modest. Maybe you can help some of our scrawny basketball players at OSU, and hoping that strength guy is not you :-)
True, good point - But the strength coach does get a good portion of the credit. He puts the program in front of the student athlete, and he is the one ensuring it is getting done properly. OSU has the highest paid strength coach in the country for a reason.
The only team that has recruited remotely close and consistently to OSU is Alabama. LSU is not even close, although they did beat OSU in recruiting once since Urban has been here. Scout is the only recruiting service I look at. OSU's average ranking is 3.8, LSU is 7, Alabama, the only team higher than OSU, has a 3.2 average ranking. (6,1,2,1,4,2)
2016 OSU 2 LSU 6
2015 OSU 8 LSU 12
2014 OSU 5 LSU 2
2013 OSU 1 LSU 9
2012 OSU 3 LSU 6
