I could see some sort of pardoy of this video ending up on Tosh.0 given that he's a Dolphins fan.
At least Dolphins fans now have somehting to talk about in the offseason!
Actually, I'd be okay with a little JT. +1
You can't find any fault in ESPN putting this garbage/non-story on their home page?!?!?!?!
No, you can have Gee at your institution because he's "good at what he does", as you said. I would even go further and say he's great at what he does. Gene Smith, on the other hand, isn't. HUGE difference.
Actually, we're looking at a third straight top 10 recruiting class.
And on GS- there's no way you could read this article and still think "he handled tatgate the best an AD could". He was slow in his response to the situation, expecting things to sort of die down when BAM (SI article), he was slow to respond to FTM charge, and he was terrible in anticipating the consequences (bowl ban). The FTM charge would NOT have happened with any good AD because the program would have been in lock down mode after tatgate. GS did absolutely nothing well.
Could someone on the 11W staff please right another story so that Gene Smith's picture isn't the first thing I see on the home page? Thanks in advance!
Line of the night, sir! This really isn't worth the bandwidth. Kudos.
Sprinkle was talking about Anzalone & Lewis Neal.. no biggie
Great, GREAT piece. Love the idea, Ramzy.
If I was the Browns GM, I'd have definitely given K. Moore a look in the 6/7 round. Also, I would have not drafted Weeden with the 22nd pick. Grab DeCastro there. Beef up the O-Line with a stud. Then let Moore and Colt duke it out in training camp if you are looking to shake things up a bit- anybody that is as accurate as Moore has a shot in the NFL- height be damned. Not sold on Weeden and let's face it, it's not like Colt had been put in a position to succeed up in Cleveland.
Why? Because it is close to being a finished project? Agree to disagree. To be fair and honest, if you evaluate based on number of kids, they are in the lead right now. If you evaluate based on talent and player rankings, OSU is #1, according to every recruiting service.
Match any 8 of their kids v the first 8 kids OSU has. Which group would you take?
The scouting breakdown I've seen from him has him being able to play 1-3. He's 6'6 right now and still growing...
Plus, the Della Valle kid from NV is looking good for the Buckeyes- at least he's definitely enjoying the Twitter love BuckeyeNation is giving him. He's a unique player from the film I've seen (most of which is a little dated from when he was younger playing for an Italian team). Here's an old tape of him from Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DUMIcjlfkU
EDIT: and another one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=an5a1xUE1Pw
You can't miss him- he's the kid with the sweet hair. I don't follow basketball recruiting nearly as much as football recruiting, but after seeing Della Valle's game recently, I've become quite a fan. Love his style and is always giving effort.
It was only a matter of time.. I am kind of surprised though that Thad wasn't on the recruiting trail a little harder this past year. With Buford gone and it being a given that at least 1 other player was leaving (NBA or transfer), you would have thought we'd of had at least a little more of a presence on the recruiting trail.
The sausage king of Chicago has some high school tapes?
Awww.. you think Hoke is actually beating Meyer out on recruits that Urban wants? That's so cute!
All Ohio kids aren't going to Michigan- if an OH kid went up north, he either A) didn't have an offer (which is a majority of the OH kids that went up north), B) was a backup plan (read: Gedeon, Smith) or C) committed before Urban got there (read Dymonte).
No, EE did NOT post that video. Bryce Teagan did on this channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/bryceteagan
"they were planning" = past tense
Sean N- I surmise that you posted without thinking. "I surmise that with a user name like "Future Buckeye" that you must be about 9 or 10 years old." Really, bro? Jamal Marcus goes by "Future Buckeye" on Twitter. LOL, Marcus is a man! Someone is proud that they are going to be a Buckeye in the future, and you want to insinuate that they are a child? The future could be tomorrow.
I really don't get why people like you come on message boards and attempt to put people down, especially someone who IS GOING TO BE A BUCKEYE!!! GOOD LORD-- Get a life. Go Bucks!
We don't know what anyone on the staff told any recruit exactly. All we know is that two recruits are saying different things. Also, these are high school kids we're talking about.
The line of thinking all along has been that 2 will be taken- also, the large amount of RBs offered sort of lends credibility to the notion that more than just 1 would be taken in this class.
My thoughts exactly, especially becasue, according to Green, Coach Drayton has told him that they will be taking 2 backs. You don't say NO to Derrick Green. End of Story.
This is from Green per Bucknuts yesterday: http://ohiostate.247sports.com/Article/Elliott-Commitment-Green-Reacts-68325
“Coach Drayton told me they are taking two backs and he wants me to be one of them”
Loved watching this game. Given the limited talent our rival has, and how easy they were to beat today, it really shows how embarassing that loss in AA really was.
I like our chances, too & think he's very open to Urban selling him on Ohio State.
Great job, Alex. This kid is ELITE- No question he's the best dual threat QB in this class.
