Just saying what I heard guy, I have a couple friends in coaching and they said many of the AAU coaches and High School coaches in the area were talking about him going to ND at least a month before Matta got the axe. Take it for what its worth.
I had been hearing rumors about this for a few weeks now even before Thad was let go. I had heard that Goodwin to ND was one of the worst kept secrets around the area for a little while now. It would be nice to keep him but if we are as good of a program as a lot of people think we are we should be able to replace him.
(*Emperor Palpatine Voice*) Goooooddddd..... Good....
If we end up with Holtmann this is a step backward I don't care what anyone says. Didn't realize that Gregg Marshall made that much money so I don't see that either. It would be insane if we got Billy Donovan.
So you're going to hire a coach from Ohio Christian... for one of the most sought after jobs in the sport where the athletic department can spend near endless amounts of money. Sure that makes sense.
I talked to a friend of mine yesterday who is close with a few of the members on the staff and he said he was told the coaching staff expected 2 big commitments in the month of June but they wouldn't specify names. After hearing that I'm wondering if maybe they are talking about Jeremy Ruckert and Anthony Cook. Saw a handful crystal balls go in for Anthony Cook to OSU yesterday including Witfong's who I put by far the most stock in and if Ruckert is planning on committing sometime this summer it would make sense. Could be a big month for us if we got both of them. I also read that Witfong was saying if Zamir White wasn't announcing on his mom's B-day his pick would be the Buckeyes, so maybe this is now a two horse race?
I had heard rumors that some teams were concerned with Parsons off the field because of some of the company he kept and possible other issues, any truth to that?
Baker Mayfield at 1??? I'm sorry but after last season seeing what he did against a young secondary, not scared. In fact I am so "not scared" of Baker Mayfield I drunkenly made a bet in Vegas with my buddy for a crisp benjamin that Ohio State wins by 2 TD's
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.
