2003. He's in the photo with the rest of the freshman class from media day.

The player is eligible to practice until either fall classes start or the season starts, which is how Chrisman can be around until late August.

Dean was the highest DB recruit we had and suffered a second major injury between his summer/fall OSU physical and post-enrolling January physical. Arnette was flipped specifically to fill Dean's slot. Andrews was willing to clear where OSU doctors wouldn't. 

Reeves is a concussion issue, very hot topic right now. He hung around the program and helped student coach, so doubt he has much beef with OSU. Meyer wouldn't cut a returning nickelback with headcase Dame Webb and gimpy Lattimore as replacements. Is Armani even cleared by BC?

Nike has done full rebrands of entire athletic departments...Illinois, Washington, etc. 

The banners are only a bit jarring because it's an italicized stencil font right next to a common typeface.

That said, look at some of the baseball or hockey uniforms vs the football or hoops uniforms. Multiple fonts and numbers and scripts. No big deal, but could be better.

I don't disagree with you on that...the eight 'healthy' guys practicing this spring have one career catch so things can change quickly. Major (Clark, Brown, Smith) and chronic injuries (Wilson, Dixon) abound.

Personally, I like Victor and Mack the most long-term. They actually know how to play the position and are healthy (knocks on wood).

Smith and Brown are exceptions because I don't think they're even cleared yet. Both will be in the rotation if healthy, I'd think.

That said, I've not heard Stump's name mentioned at all, and McLaurin very little. Hill is behind due to injury and Gibson due to inexperience, but the fact of the matter is some guys will be left behind. At the moment, it seems Clark, Dixon, Mack and Campbell are the top 4 at WR, with Samuel/Wilson at H.

Weber is the only scholarship back on his team. Dunn has to split carries with Antonio Williams, who Coach Meyer has been talking up all spring. 

Dunn's realistic ceiling this year is special teams star. There is value in those spots, but Dunn shouldn't be looked at as a RB anymore than Fada/Burger at LB.

Comment 15 Apr 2016

This should give you a pretty clear indication of where guys stand right now. Scarlet has the whole starting offense and top subs, Grey with the starting defense and subs. I'm thinking Scarlet's second OL is the third line when the team is all together.

Nobody's getting shot in Grant Park on a normal weekend, let alone when the NFL in town. Having worked this event last year, the police presence was noticeable. For all the cuts he's made to the force, Rahm Al-Ghul has them show out at Draft Town. He wants the Draft here permanently, though I think it may rotate between LA/Chi/NYC. 

90% of the bodies are dropped S and W Side, and there's no reason to go there unless you're a resident.

Grain Elevators is such a better name than Twin Towers for Lincoln/Morrill.

Comment 12 Mar 2016

Kirksey = Larry Kirksey, who is coaching the Ohio team. Due to their publicly traded status, there are certain time periods to release information on team locations, names, etc. Why they're six weeks from opening day and none of this has been announced, I swear I don't know. 

Last I heard, the plan was to play at UAkron's stadium this spring and move to Fawcett in 2017.
