Comment 03 Feb 2016

Meyer said they don't anticipate any more medical DQs. 

Even though I've not seen anything official from OSU, I'll trust Birm and assume Chrisman enrolls next January. That leaves them at 87. Fada and Burger aren't in this count because they're going back to walkon status in June.

So, two are leaving.

Comment 03 Feb 2016

For whoever:

- where do you see Harrison playing?

-any talk on how E Smith/Burrows are rehabbing? It appears Fuller will play, but the health of the former two may keep him as a piranha/special units guy

- will we really have five Fr/RFr TEs this year, or can any play elsewhere on the field?

Comment 03 Feb 2016

Mahalak just announced a transfer. I like Jonsen, who redshirted last year. There was a fair amount of mutual interest with Coach Meyer (and an offer) but the Cali kid went to Eugene.

I think he's up after Prukop.

Comment 01 Feb 2016

No. Was replaced by something called Brenton Bersin for the last five games in 2014, and Teddy handled it this year.

Comment 31 Jan 2016

Forgot to mention, Brandon Underwood enjoyed beating his wife to the point where she left his ass.

Comment 31 Jan 2016

Andrew Lee - Cooper's last recruiting class. Beat up a woman and got booted before his freshman season was over, murdered a woman a year later. Doing LWOP.

Ira Guilford and Irizarry for going around campus and beating on folks.

The Underwood brothers for proving that being sons of a preacher means dick. They were both constantly in the doghouse until Tressel got sick of their shit and told them to transfer. 

There is a list of players I'm not a fan of, but those are coach decisions.

Comment 31 Jan 2016

No, but you can only have 105 bodies in camp. You can expand during the year.

OSU suits up guys who aren't even listed on the roster...these are straight walkons that come from the student body or club team. Sometimes they hang around for a second year (Fong comes to mind).

Pretty much any walk on that plays was invited and brought in from HS. Burger and Fada came in together in 2012.

Comment 27 Jan 2016

I seem to remember the same song and dance during the bicentennial and on through the Browns return. I hope the best for my hometown, but don't think much it has a terribly high ceiling when attracting young pros. Unfortunately, even that city three hours east is doing better.

Comment 23 Jan 2016

Brutus' vacant stare always gets me.

interested in seeing what scouts think of Jamal Marcus next year. I think his size will limit him, but he's been productive at Akron.

Comment 21 Jan 2016

For the whole injury speculation thing:

-Dixon and Thompson both were in pads at the Bowl game. This may not mean a ton as Reeves and Tannee actually played in the 2015 title game and retired right afterwards. Dre'Mont Jones and Damon Arnette dressed after missing much of the regular season.

-I did not see a Smith (Corey or Erick), Burrow, Burrows or Berger on the sidelines.

-Noah Brown, Alabi, Conner and Hilliard were all in sweats but present vs. ND. Hilliard still had his arm in a sling.

Comment 21 Jan 2016

I'm a bit leery of that as well. Arnette apparently moved to SAF as of Bowl practice but he was in street clothes much of the year. Smith and Burrows are coming off major leg injuries...they could come back strong, but just as likely bring up memories of CJ Barnett, Anderson Russell, etc. Hooker is intriguing because there's such little film on him. 

Fortunately, this 'problem' might be a one-year thing with a quartet of Top 150 DBs for 2017. 

Comment 09 Jan 2016

Despite Reeves/Tanner last year, I don't think Meyer would let guys put on pads if they're Medical DQ risks. Thompson and Dre'Mont Jones were healthy enough to dress out. I don't believe Kyle Berger (or Erick Smith, Burrows or Burrow) even traveled. 

Comment 06 Jan 2016

More numbers:

20 offensive returners have played a snap for Ohio State. 14 played in the Bowl game. 9 got offensive snaps -- this includes Dunn (1, a kneeldown no less), Campbell (2), Wilson and Clark (approx 8 apiece).

19 defensive returners have played a snap for Ohio State. 15 played in the Bowl game, 10 got defensive snaps -- seven linemen, Raekwon, Conley and Webb at nickel. Only one returning safety (Hooker) played, and it was solely special teams.

Lee, Perry, Apple, Bell, Conley and Powell played every defensive snap. Raekwon played all but the final three, giving way to senior Cam Williams.
