I think Urban is just keeping certain units on their toes. We know he's not afraid to praise certain groups for different things (focus, work ethic, trust, togetherness, etc..), but he needs to see it consistently on Saturdays. The off season work needs to translate into tangible production.

I agree with Spielman on the fact that the line will make the unit better.  I loved playing linebacker in a 5-2, see ball - get ball. Once I got older having people in my face changed everything. Wasn't until I moved to safety I truly understood how linebackers need to read keys to put themselves in position to make plays. If one or more of our thoroughbreds up front demands a double team, watch out.

The D lines dominance should and will hopefully have a 'trickle back' effect and make the whole D dominant.

I think as long as the 'gurus' and coaches technique beliefs are aligned there isn't much of an issue. From my experience coaching; 2-3 coaches can be preaching the same thing but one will use verbage that just makes things click.

Plus going out to (stay classy) San Diego in Braxton's case must be a pretty cool way to get away while maintaining focus on his goals.

Seems to play the ball great in the air. Looks like if he cleans up his route running and gets a year or two with Mickey the sky's the limit.. Great to have him, can't wait to see him in S & G!!

Reading through his mentions, RTs and favorites makes me think the 'How not to be an asshole' article needs to be auto posted to the home page before or immediately after any major recruiting events.  Twitter is interesting source of info but man I just don't get why people (including our own) tweet these kids.

How do you think Scott Van Peezy got to ESPN and is now one of their most prominent anchors? Two words: Tiger Woods.. 

He was in the right place at the right time. Rode the Tiger wave all the way from a shot caller on the Golf Channel to the top and I'm sure he's not the only example.

Good for both of them, cheer up; you'll live longer..

Getting this kid on campus could have a huge impact on this class.. A talent (at least rated talent) like this could get us back in on some of the top tier skill position guys.. Unfortunately If he does chose tOSU it might be too late in the process to have any real impact.. But TG, Sweat, DH and Burrell (sp?) are the guys on my wish list.

As a younger fan (only 4 when this game took place) this was a great watch. Love the way the game was played in the 90's and early 2000's. I noticed KH was the holder, next search is going to be his highlights, don't know a lot about his career..

I agree this is HUGE for tOSU.. Not only does bball have early rights to King gear now he's right down the road and will be more prevalent.  After reading that essay I think someone needs to remind him that OSU is a big (biggest for most) part of Ohio sports fans lives and he could to be the greatest ambassador ever.. Imagine his effect on recruiting, even if it's just using his thumbs and smart phone

My concern lays within the LB room.. So much uncertainty with that group. Loads of young unproven talent. Best case they blow up like our D-Line did (weakness into strength); worst case we're scouring the roster for someone who can get it done (Boren 2012).
