I sure would love to have him play in Columbus, but I can't fault a kid for making what he believes is the best decision for him. 

And despite what we all feel about their football team and their coach, Notre Dame is a heck of a school.

Like I said yesterday, if the depth chart and competition was what kept JG from committing to OSU, I find it funny, cause there are 4 QB's on UT's roster for this Fall and I've heard they might be taking a second in the 2016 class. That would give them 6 by the time he stepped on campus there.

Comment 16 Apr 2015

Ha, yeah I should've said "$350 or more"...

Comment 16 Apr 2015

Uh no. I am a cheapskate and there are few things I would ever pay $350 for. Some of them include my house, my car, my education, and my wife, but not hats...

Comment 15 Apr 2015

The crazy thing is that at Tennessee there is the possibility he'll have just as much competition at QB as he would at OSU. This Fall they'll have 4 scholarship QB's on their roster.  

Comment 15 Apr 2015

Okay, but what does this story have to do with Ryan Timmons? That's what we all want to know...

Comment 14 Apr 2015

There's really only one kid on Tennessee's roster that I'm rooting for. Our friends' son Jack early enrolled at UT in January and plays Offensive Tackle. He was a 4 star and ranked around the top 100 in the country, depending on which site you look at, Under Armor All American, and had offers from pretty much every SEC school. But their family bleeds orange, which is pretty gross, but I wish him well. 

Comment 13 Apr 2015

I don't know if this counts as a dumb thought cause I'm pretty sure most you guys were thinking the same thing; but when Cardale Jones was given a scholarship, I thought Tressel was only doing a favor for Ted Ginn Sr (which he probably was).  

But let's just say: I never thought Cardale would ever even see the field for Ohio State.

In your opinion, what is the toughest position or unit (linebackers, d-line, o-line, d-backfield, receivers, etc.)  for Ohio State to recruit players for and why do you think that is the case? 

Comment 10 Apr 2015

Assuming Russell goes pro, how many new players and/or freshmen do you think will start next year?

Upperclassmen: Loving, Tate, K. Williams, KBD

New/Freshmen: T.Thompson, Bell, Giddens, Mitchell, Harris, Lyle, Grandstaff

Comment 09 Apr 2015

He was at 111 after the 6th when he was pulled. He had struck out 11 but walked 5 at that point, although without a hit.

Comment 09 Apr 2015

Calipari puts a big emphasis on not only having success on the court but also on his guys getting drafted and uses both to his advantage on the recruiting trail. And while people may not like the guy and may not like his revolving door of players coming in and out of his program year after year; he's using the system that is in place to perfection. Until the NBA makes changes to their age requirement, this sort of thing will continue. 

Crazy note: If all 7 UK players get drafted, that will make 26 UK players drafted since 2010.
