Talking about Young's strength a year ago I would have to agree, when I saw him at Friday Night Lights last summer he looked pretty lean alot more like a long OLB, but now he's saying he has put on 30 lbs of muscle since the end of his senior year after going to a special strength trainer... mother of God......
I was sick seems to be a popular excuse these days (See Foster, Reuben) for if you know you're going to get popped for jazz cabbage, devil's lettuce, reefer etc. In all honesty though it's 2017, fewer and fewer people are caring about these things, but when you do it before the combine it just shows a clear flaw in judgement.
This is surprising because from what I remember working at Muirfeild (2-3 years ago) UFM wasn't the most popular guy at the club. Kind of kept to himself while he was there and some members thought he bent the rules with his family around the club.
Pretty sure that Tosh likes OSU, he has visited WNCI a number of times wearing Ohio State stuff and he has mentioned them on his show before. From what i know Tosh is a big football guy and I think he may have taken a liking to the local team over the years.
Just noticed this, i can say that UFM is a pretty large guy having served him at Muirfield a few times, UFM has to be around 6'3 so that would make Tosh pretty damn tall.
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL I was at the most recent UC game with my dad, I wouldn't consider that a close game.
From what I remember, UFM said he all but mandates that his QBs wear a brace on the knee of their lead plant leg. He said he does this because as you stride forward and plant that foot and follow through it leaves the knee exposed to injury and thus he has instructed his QBs to wear knee braces. All of our QBs are rightys thus the left knee brace, I also believe that the NCAA may mandate that all O-linemen have to wear them at this point.
Just saying it now, the fact that no one really knows who our number 1 is right now, is kind of concerning. I think this team could suffer from the same issue as last year where we don't have a guy who we are going to on third and long. This team desperately needs a WR to step up and be the number one, we are only going as far as the WR's let us this year.
Who will win the Devon Torrence award for biggest playmaker who won't produce this fall?
I'm sure no one will ever get free or reduced cost goods and/or services at this dealership *end sarcasm and insert eye roll here*
The title of this should be, "People who underwhelmed last year that we hope get it together." If we are talking about players with the most pressure on them I think you have to look at Binjimen Victor and Austin Mack, they've been hyped, they've talked about how rough and tough Zone 6 is, if you want the hype and to be known as the best, go out and prove it.
One of the Account Managers I work with was a starting DB under Tressel in the early 2000's. He said he made it well known that he was all Ohio State and still accepted official visits to both UCLA and FSU simply because he wanted to see what schools had to offer and to go have a good time. That being said, it always concerns me when someone is 100% or dare I say, 110% committed? If you're that committed, do you really need to come out and say it? I'm not saying Jones is flipping, but I wouldn't be surprised if he is listening.
OH NOOOOO!!! EVERYONE FREAK OUT THE SKY IS FALLING!!!! Relax, he's a high school junior who probably had a great visit with the reigning national champs and got caught up in the excitement. How many times have we seen this happen to us before? Guys like Marvin Wilson, Deshaun Watson, Mecole Hardman, Stefon Diggs do I need to continue? These are high school kids who have their emotions influenced easily. Naming a leader literally means NOTHING. Until he signs with Clemson I have a hard time believing we lose Carman. Seriously, its recruiting and FNL hasn't even happened yet, not to mention Carman said he is taking all five visits. Relax hes a 17 year old, things like this are gonna happen.
No he's available because his contract is absurd. We had an A$$ load of money ted up in our defense, there is a reason we have the 32nd ranked offensive line in the NFL. What people don't look at is that Seattle has legitimately no money to spend.
As a Columbus, OH Seahawks fan, (long story that has to do with getting dumped a while back and having no pro football team and a alot of free time on my hands) I like Sherman a lot. That being said I have a #HotTake that the guys in LOB are only good because of the guys they have around them. LOB doesn't work without all of its parts, we saw this when Chancellor went out 2 years ago and we saw it when Thomas went down too. I truthfully don't think I'd be in love with taking any of these guys without the others coming with them. Carroll has a system and they are all important pieces of a machine, but I don't think I'd want LOB without Sherman and if I were another team I wouldn't want Sherman without the LOB. Sherman is very talented but the scheme and players that he has around him make him significantly better and allow his abilities as a cover corner to be amplified. If someone wants to give us picks for him and that ludicrous contract go ahead.
Offense - I'm a big believer in Binjimen Victor. I think the Haitian Sensation opens a lot of eyes this season. Tall, fast, and looks like he can really get up and grab the ball.
Defense - I think Denzel Ward is going to have a HUGE year. We keep hearing he is the best athlete on the team and he was splitting time with Lattimore and Conley for a reason, he's the real deal.
LOL this is great. I brought up the Ringer's blunder today on twitter, whats hilarious is that they are just now releasing their first mock and STILL whiffed on getting the graphic right. SMH. Poor Marshon, people should respeck him more.
Yeah you're right, guys who didn't get invited to the NFL Combine are quality players. Grow up, the guy never lived up to the hype and will always be an after thought. Its honestly laughable that anyone want to defend him. Guy never showed up against a quality team.
I'm genuinely amazed at all the people wanting Noah Brown, he's not an NFL caliber WR.
LOL you'd take Noah Brown in the 5th?!? Give me some of whatever this guy is drinking! Also no way Elflein slides that far.
He sucks, period. Blame injuries all you want the guy never developed any consistent football moves. HUGE BUST.
I feel like Meyer's praise can be 50-50 sometimes, sometimes its smoke and other times it seems very much warranted. I remember UFM raving about Dontre Wilson early on and he may be the most disappointing recruit that Meyer has had outside of maybe Mike Mitchell. But at the same time, we heard the hype about Malik Hooker last year who was a relative unknown outside of Buckeye die hards and we all know how that turned out. I guess at the end of the day it all comes down to wait and see.
I honestly have to agree, I love Lattimore, he's a freak, but if you are a GM drafting someone with that kind of injury history and a small body of work is a roll of the dice. I honestly think his health is the biggest question, I can completely understand the Patrick Peterson comparisons though. Lattimore is a roll of the dice in terms of health but he has almost unlimited potential with his athleticism and what he has shown in terms of ability, I think he's going to convince someone to take him in the top 15. As for Apple I absolutely stunned that he went that high, I felt like he was a walking PI flag at OSU in some games and I thought Conley out played him last year. I think both Conley and Lattimore both have better careers, but when it comes down to Lattimore vs. Conley you just have to decide if you wan tto roll the dice on Lattimore and someone in the top 15 most certainly will. I will be shocked if Conley slide past about pick 40 and someone should take him in round 1 as well.
I love how Eric asks at the end of the Clark section if this is the year he will finally breakout... uhhh no. Thats a pretty simple answer. You generally don't see guys who haven't produced their whole career put it together as a 5th year senior.
I think this group needs to take a long hard look at itself and stop tweeting about Zone 6, stop talking and start producing. The WR's have looked like they're ok resting on their laurels since we won the title.
If I'm Urban, I'm sitting down with Binjimen Victor and KJ Hill and telling them that we need them NOW. Give them the same speech that Tywin Lannister gave Jamie in the first season of Game of Thrones: You have all of the ability in the world, I don't need you to be great a month a or a year from now, we need you now.
This team will only go as far as the WR's will let us this year.
Let me say this is a RUMOR that I have heard, but a friend of mine who has friends within the program has told me multiple times that Diggs told Urban he was in but then found out he was having a child a few days later and decided he needed to stay close to home. FWIW.
