If not for the aberration that was the 2011 football season, Ohio State would have something like 11 in a row

IIRC, Katzenmoyer got permission from Archie to wear 45 just the same way that Hilliard got permission from Harleys family to wear 47

People keep talking about Defensive Line depth because Urban Meyer keeps talking about it. He's brought up the depth on the DL, or lack thereof, on his own several times recently. We have more then enough bodies to fill the spots, but we are going to need several guys who haven't played much step up their game of we are going to continue to improve on defense.

I Love Lucy. Often immitared, never duplicated. Can't believe I just read through 94 posts of people listing great (and many not so great) comedies without anybody mentioning one of the great landmark televsison shows by the funniest woman in the history of TV.

Jon Stewart was one of the highest paid people on all of television. He made about 35 Million per year. I don't think this was about more money.
Comment 10 Feb 2015
Since you asked, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made more money than all the Harry Potter movies and the Spider-Man movies have made more than all the Twilight movies. The MCU already had the highest total Box Office of any franchise ever and the only others with more than Spider Man are Harry Potter, Star Wars, Batman, James Bond and Lord of the Rings. http://www.filmsite.org/series-boxoffice.html

This is news for people who like movies...which is most people. Were talking about 2 of the biggest blockbuster franchises of all time coming together. The Spider-Man and MCU franchises have both broken countless box office records and by coming tohether they have a chance to do something even bigger.

I don't think they're gonna keep Andrew Garfield. But that doesn't mean we have to get another origin movie. Everybody already knows the Spider-Man origin story. They can just dive right into Peter Parker already being spider-man and just fill in the background with a little bit of exposition dialogue or a flashback. Marvel is gonna want to cast their own guy and not be bound by the continuity of the Amazing Spider-Man films. They're also going to chose somebody that they can lock up to a long term contract for several films. Spider-Man will be the new face of The Avengers after Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworths contracts are up and RDJ becomes too expensive.

It's not about being "worthy" as it is about a different recruiting philosophies.  Tressel was willing to fill depth with certain Glenville guys that he took as projects based on Ginn's advice (guys like Curtis Terry, Jermil Martin, Shaq Rowell, even Cardale Jones), Meyer is more inclined to try to fill that spot with an out of state star.

Here is an interesting article from cleveland.com about the difference between Tressel's and Meyer's strategies as it relates to Glenville http://www.cleveland.com/osu/index.ssf/2015/01/urban_meyer_and_glenville_if_c.html#incart_related_stories

5 DL recruits to 2 in one class doesn't really mean anything. You've got to look at the big picture. OSU got no true DTs in last years class, and both of the guys they are likely to start at DT this coming year will be Seniors - there is a lot of opportunity avaliable at OSU for a young talented DT.

I'm pretty sure they would just take graduate classes in something, even if it wasn't necessary connected to thrir major. All athletes have to take a minimum number of classes
Comment 28 Jan 2015

Thanks for the link. Useful but somebody should update it for graduation, recruits, transfers, redshirts, etc. 

Comment 28 Jan 2015

Is there an updated scholarship chart around here? I remember that one of old Bucknuts or Scouts sites used to keep one, but I don't really use those sites anymore. 

An updated Scolarship Chart broke down by position would be a nice feature for 11W to have - not just for tots numbers but for depth chart considerations, recruiting needs, etc.

Collier has to be aware of the fact that he as brought in as a project/backup for now - it's not like he was a 5 star Elite 11 QB every major school wanted.  He has talent for sure, but his position on the depth chart can not be a surprise to him.  Regardless of how the QB situation played out this year/next year his chances at really seeing the field before 2017 or 2018 were always very limited.  I really doubt he transfers all of a sudden because he's a backup - he was always going to be backup at this point in his career.

This thread is about Offensive linemen, not Defense.  Typically you don't rotate a lot on the OL unless you have to. You want continuity up front on offense.   You want your 5 best guys out there pretty much every snap in you can - which OSU has been able to do for the last couple years. You usually aren't going to rotate much on the OL unless guys aren't playing up to par or if you're not sure who your best five are yet. 

Its not not usually part of the game plan to rotate OL to keep them fresh. Meanwhile that is a common approach on the DL
