There is a good chance Thomas will leave early, but Ohio State has more depth, speed and play makers than ever before.
The loss of Herman, the quarterback whisperer. IMO could be a bigger loss then the hole of the players lost this year.
When you get to be close to 35 no one wants to get hit in the face with another man's fist regardless of occupation
You never noticed he didn't have eye brows????
Ohio State ALREADY is one of the 4 schools in the country that have both top 20 football and basketball programs. Currently Arizona would be #1, Ohio State #2, MSU #3 and Florida #4..
Does Duke, NC, Virginia, Syracuse, Kansas, or Kentucky have a Top 20 football program?
Does Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, Florida State, Oregon, Baylor, TCU, Texas A&M have a Top 20 basketball program?
Think about it!
A very simple answer to a very simple question. For the most part Ohio State, regardless of who the head coach is, will not get a player even from Ohio that Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, Syracuse or Michigan State wants.
Just name a coach who wants to coach at Ohio State that will be able to get them.
What does it REALLY mean? There could be as many as 10 Ohio State players leave early next year..
That's why it was thought Ohio State was one year away.
QBs, 3 title game winners, team leaders shouldn't do that stuff.
How many dingle berries did we have that wanted to fire Fickell??
How many years did VJ King actually live in Ohio?
What I read between the lines of what Matta said. The only consistent 3-point shooter is Freshman Grandstaff, unless Loving gets his shooting stoke back that was stolen from him when her served his mysterious 3 game suspension.
In hopes of scoring and shooting better than Craft's Senior season and finishing .500 in the Big Ten, the starters will have to be Harris, Grandstaff, Loving, Bates-Diop, and Giddens. Mitchel will be the team's John Havlicek, coming off the bench. A good defender, great passer, great basketball mind and can play 4 positions. I'm hoping Cam Williams can become a more consistent scorer off the bench. Someone else is going to have to step up and bring the energy. Tate is a terrible shooter, .520 from the foul line, .153 behind the 3-point line. I'm sorry, but his energy can't replace the scoring loss.
Not one consistent scorer/3-point shooter in the lineup, be lucky to score 60 per game.
Not if you compare Mr.Tate's 3-point shooting and foul shooting with that of Mr. Grandstaff
Louisville is below the Mason Dixon Line.
Who's Dallas Baptist?
What a dumb ass, Then no law was broken, but an NCAA violation occurred.
With what those tattoos cost he could have given more to his daughter
Braxton is the round peg, Saban's offense is the is the square hole.
This proves what I have always believed. D-linemen and O-lineman take longer to develop at the collegiate level than any other position. Unless you're a Five Star STUD like Orlando Pace or Joey Bosa. Who can step right in and play as a Freshman. A RARITY!
Fire Fickell??? LOLZ....... I always thought they were tools.
Don't forget he was a 6-5 210 Safety in high school, Which probably makes him just as athletic as Bosa, but not as physical yet. Urban has already said that what he saw in spring practice puts Hubbard in the D-end rotation this fall.
The most interesting aspect of the QB Derby this summer. Urban said there will be a large chart on the wall in the Woody, for all to see, The coaches, players, the 3 QBs and the press. On this chart will be several columns of requirements and responsibilities of the QB in Urban's offense. Each QB will get a grade in each column of the chart everyday. Midway through summer practice when the decision will be made, It will be obvious to everyone why and for who the decision was made. By just looking at the chart. .
How often does that happen? Goes from a 6-5 210 HS Junior with a lacrosse scholarship in hand from Notre Dame to a 6-5 265 Redshirt Freshman D-end in the rotation at Ohio State. The story goes that Urban was on a recruiting trip to Moeller to see a football recruit, saw Hubbard in the school gym working on his lacrosse skills. Urban asked, "Who in the heck is that kid?" Finding out that he also was a 6-5 210 safety for Moeller, a football scholarship offer followed shortly thereafter.
The Ohio State D-backfield is so talented it's conceivable that 3 could leave a year early for the NFL.
