Hoke, "Hey Mark, uhhh...that's my wife right there...ummm...you think Urban can flip her?"
That's a very good point and question. If Henderson is that high on OSU, he'll be okay with waiting. If Urban thinks Watson's best for the team, the other guys can't be too sour about it. We want competitors and guys that are willing to prove themselves, not guys that are going to back down. They need to step up and assert themselves a little more. Getting better is a great way to earn that offer.
Yes, don't write him off yet. He stumbled early then was moved to LB for depth, so he never had a chance to redeem himself. Remember, Beenie had early issues but finally made a big, or HUGE, play in the UM game. That was the turning point of his career at OSU. Smith didn't get that opportunity...yet. With freshman talents chomping at his heels, we'll see how he deals with pressure early this year; but he certainly has the physical tools to be a force with the ball. He just has to prove himself.
