Medberry over Telford from Iowa... I don't know anything about wrestling but I'm watching and I assume that helps us?

Only happens to me on my phone.  Not sure why but I haven't really thought about it/looked into it.  My computer, however, stays logged in just fine.

You are right, most coaches in America are probably not at 85 on signing day.  I don't know of any programs that have been over their limit in August either so in my opinion oversigning can only be considered in between signing day and August.  Schools oversign and yes I think that almost every school does it.  I don't think it is a bad thing and I think it is necessary.  The attrition issue is one of the main reasons why.  That is the point of oversigning and in my opinion the definition.  People give "oversigning" a negative wrap because of the minimal amount of stories where athletes have been forced out.  I don't think that is near the norm.

I also agree, irrelevant.  Nothing I say or do will change anything.  I just have nothing else to talk about.

I honestly think there are a lot of people on here that bashed the SEC and oversigning without actually understanding what it means to oversign.  They just saw it as recruiting tons a players and picked the best of the bunch while throwing out the scraps.  Now that it is front and center with the Buckeyes people look into it and see what it actually means.

What? How can you write, and in the same line, that they "signed 4 over" and then say it isn't "oversigning"? Haha.

Upvote because I enjoyed reading it.

For the record, I have no problem with "oversigning".  The issues come with how players may or may not be forced out.  I have seen nothing in that realm to question this staff.

Saying "with all due respect" doesn't negate the insult you throw out after it. You being a coach is great and all but it doesn't mean you are right or wrong.  It sure doesn't mean you know more than any given person on this board either.  We all have opinions and we are entitled to them. Just as you say it was a bad read I'll say that the play call comes before the read, for obvious reasons, and in this situation was a bad call.

Worst call in NFL history, that's for sure. Lynch could have had at least two shots from the one. If they couldn't run it in with Lynch then so be it but come on, that was awful.

I'll have to disagree here. Yes the story will be good but if it's close, as in no real advantage to any of the three, Braxton will get the nod. Obviously just my opinion but  he's the senior and a leader on the team.

This. I think if you look up composure in the dictionary it reads "JT vs Penn State".

Thanks for the Sunday skully.  Just one fix that I noticed right off the bat. Tyson Gentry not Tyler.
