I thought football players at Northwestern would be above average when it cam to an IQ. IF, as the court ruled, they are employees not students. Do they have any idea how much money they will owe in TAXES on that $100,000 annual "salary" they "earn" every year???
I do not care what Ginn Jr. ran a 40 in. NO ONE I mean N-O O-N-E could stay with him, let alone catch him, on the football field in his 3 years at Ohio State. It would look like someone had an angle on him, but it was never close.
How big was Harvin when he was a Freshman at Florida? Did he stay healthy at Florida? He's had a few injuries in the NFL. Pushing our luck if Wilson or Samuel runs out of the backfield a lot.
Some know it is far better for job opportunities to graduate from Ohio State and have your job application say 4 year member of Ohio State football team. What are the odds that a player is more apt to get drafted if starting for Ohio State as a Senior or Starting for Kentucky 2 years?
The days of waiting your turn are over. For many if they aren't a starter by their Sophomore year, they run to the next chance to play. They figure they won't get drafted if they aren't playing.....silly of them to think they will good enough to play in the NFL if they aren't starting for Ohio State.
You haven''t figured it out yet???? EVERETT WITHERS!
What if he had not have been red shirted and played on special teams at least?
The Mitchel's live in Plano Texas a suburb of Dallas. SMU in Dallas would be about 6 hours closer to Dad than Texas Tech In Lubbock.
Brother Micky who committed to Ohio State's basketball program a year ago is still committed and as far as I can see has not mentioned playing basketball at a school close to his sick father.
Different claps.. There are fake claps to get a flinch from the defense to detect what they will being doing. There are claps that start plays. There are claps to start motion. There are claps to shift a back in the backfield. There are claps to tell the Center that everything is ready for him to start a verbal snap count.
For the 3rd year in a row Hoke plays the we're "so young" card..Can you picture Urban doing that once, let alone 3 years in a row? BTW, how is possible to be "so young" 3 years in a row???
Hate to say I told ya so.
It does not matter that "we" want Turner. What DOES matter with Taylor and the other top 20 players in every class is does Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, Kentucky and Louisville want them. If they do Matta/Ohio State doesn't stand a chance.
Please, don't think.
We get one of these worry warts every year.
So, the guy having all the fun doesn't get charged and the 2 standing are taking the fall? Only at a Florida football school.
This kid goes to VT out of high school, but now has Kentucky, Kansas, Arizona, Florida, Georgetown, Tennessee and Ohio State after him??? Explain that?
You think it is difficult for the QB to make these reads? It's almost impossible for an official to be better than the QB at making MANY more "reads" on a single play. He's "reading" illegal motion, offside, holding, illegal use of the hands by a D-lineman, chop-block, clipping, personal foul AND an O-lineman down field more than 3 yards on a pass play.... that looks like a running play since all of the O-linemen are blocking like it's a running play, not a pass. AND it WAS going to be a running play, EXCEPT a slit second before releasing the ball to the TB, the QB pulls it out and throws a rocket 5-yards down field.
Can't be done, unless the official has been asked by the opponent's coaches to please look for a lineman down field more than 3 yards on a pass play......uh.....that looks like a running play.
In the 2nd video example OSU's left guard #71 is 5 yards down field blocking the LB when the pass is thrown.
Last year you knew Hayes was going to have a better FRESHMAN year than Loving??? Why in the hell didn't you tell us THEN?
Matta did not "miss" on any of those players, Sullinger wanted Craft, not burke to be his PG. Jackson wasn't going to sit behind Craft and Scott AND no good recruiter takes 3 PGs in 2 years. LeVert? He was only 2nd team All-Ohio when he was a Senior, He was a 3 Star and 2 Star. He was all of 6-4 175. He had committed to Ohio U. when Groce was head coach. Groce went to Illinois and didn't think LeVert was good enough for Illinois.Payne DID NOT want to play for Ohio State and sit behind Sullinger. If Sullinger didn't go to Ohio State THEN and ONLY then was Payne going to Ohio State.
Jarred Sullinger, THE best post player in the country in his class played with both Burke and Craft. Sullinger wanted Craft to be his PG, Craft always was looking to pass it into Sully, Burke preferred shooting over assisting Sullinger.
OSU had 2 scholarships this year. Cam Williams got one, Mark Loving got the other. Loving, the #1 player from Ohio in his class, committed when he was a Sophomore. Hayes was unheard of then, More highly thought of as a football player.
No D, no play for Matta.
Payne DID NOT want to be a Buckeye if Jared Sullnger was on the team.
Your Senior year is a little late to start worrying about your grades.
If Craft, Smith and Scott can't fined their shot, Thompson won't
