I love this kid and his commitment to OSU and I really hope he does well.....but......the way the class becomes number 1 in the rankings of the kids that comprise the class.    Martell's ranking helps our number and he is so highly thought of that he has been invited to the All Star gatherings that elite kids attend.   In these situations, elite players recruit other elite players.    Martell has been an active recruiter in these events.  Elite kids want to play with other elite kids and Martell, despite the less than outstanding performance recently is viewed by his peers as elite.     Clark has not been invited to these high visibility events and would not have the influence that Martell has.     Martell has the respect of the kids we are chasing and has built personal relationships with them.    Clark can only communicate via social media.  

Last year's QB situation was a mess and the only way it did not divide the team was that Barrett and Cardale were good friends and handled it professionally so it didn't hurt the team.     This is not a good look for Clark and certainly something I don't think Urban will tolerate.

I am confident in the offense and I am not even nervous about the D line. I think we have players on the D line and a healthy rotation to keep them fresh. My only concern is 3 of 4 new players in the secondary. It's good we play Tulsa before this game. That will tell us what to expect when we face Baker Mayfield. I am not concerned about talent, just about inexperience and missed assignments. I believe we can do it, but some kids will have to grow up in this game.

Not a fan of commitment videos, but Jordan Fuller's was the best I ever saw and still the standard for professionalism and class.

I agree about Cornell but don't forget Hamilton.  He looked damn good in the Spring game.  The rotation could be great this year with Cornell, Jones, Hamilton, and Landers backing up Hill and Sprinkle.    Our D line should never get tired.

I checked into a hotel in Austin a couple of months ago and it was 2:00 AM in the morning when I finally got there. There was a guy in front of me who decided to sign up for their frequent stayer program at that time. I was tired and I was getting pissed as I stood there and heard him give the desk clerk his Los Angeles address. When he was finally finished he turned around to go to the elevators and he saw my block O hat. He smiled and looked at me and said O-H. I had to laugh and said I-O. Small world.

When does Harbaugh send a twitter shot at Muschamp? I have never seen someone in a position like he has that is so thin skinned.

For the first time pretty much since he has been here he now has the bodies to rotate players. That is what I am most interested to see. If he develops these players, and I believe he will, and he rotates like he says he wants to do our D line should always have fresh legs in the 4th quarter. A fresh D line getting pass rush should really help an inexperienced defense backfield this year.
