The Freshmen who play the best D will see the most playing time. Don't forget combo guard Cam Williams, who is redshirting this year.
Amir weighs 250. What should he weigh?
Is it just me or is this coaching staff recruiting more honor students than ever?
If memory selves, most thought Ravenel was a stiff.
Hyde would never have come to Ohio State if they told him he was going to be a fullback. All that was required was to time him in a forty and you would know he was not a fullback.
This past year we must of had MORE than a complete team. Why else redshirt 12 players?
Some people have addictive personalities some don't.
He has a drinking problem, he needs help. Releasing him and another school picking him up solves nothing.
If one did not have a twitter account no one could bully you from afar.
Secondly, what will be the reaction if Knox decommits for UCLA?
If a player is not a great 3-point shooter in high school, being a great athlete in high school does not mean he can be taught to be a great 3-point shooter in college. It is much easier to teach a great shooter to be a good defender. One must be "athletic" enough to be a great 3-point shooter in high school to be taught defense in college. A Top 10 program has to recruit three good shooters and one 6-9+ physical player in each recruiting class. Every other year, one less great shooter, for one top ranked PG.
8th grade All-Star Game???
If for no other reason, Braxton coming back is the best thing that could have happened for Ohio State football for 4 years into the future. Would you rather have a Redshirt Freshman starting next year who has ZERO plays on the field with a true Freshman his backup? Braxton coming back means the 2015-2016 starting QB will get reps in practice and reps on the field next year. Collier can redshirt and learn. REGARDLESS of OSU's record next year. It is best for QB #2, #3 and #4 and Ohio State football into the future.
Ever notice per capita how many 4 and 5 star HS basketball players come out of Texas and Florida? The skilled players are playing football year round instead of playing basketball. A friend was a head HS bball coach in Cape Coral Florida and moved to a head job in West Lafayette Indiana . In Cape Coral they got 5000 for a football game and 500 for a basketball game. In West Lafayette they get 5000 for a basketball game and 500 for a football game.
A salesman friend who used to call on me here in Ohio, moved to Tennessee as manufacturing was moving south. He had been there a couple of months after buying a new home in an upper middle class neighborhood. No neighbors had came to welcome him and his wife. He was out mowing his yard one day, noticed his neighbor was doing the same. He got two beers and went next door to introduce himself. In a southern drawl, his neighbor said. "Look here son, down here carpetbaggers are just one notch above n.....s." YIKES!!
All those moving South and their new neighbors will all seek out the largest source of freshwater in the world. When one day they turn on their facets and nothing but rusty salt water comes out.
Some average players on the defensive side of the balll.
The "Peter Principle."
NO coach has ever recruited perfectly. If so, every year there would be nothing but 22 Senior starters. With the exception of the once in a decade recruit or 3 years and off to the NFL.
That was a running jump. Believe it or not Heuerman has the highest standing vertical on the team. He also has the most reps of 225# on the team.
Not surprising to me. Vrabel doesn't have to spend all of that time recruiting in the NFL AND he is a pro's pro. He is only 3 years removed from being an NFL starter. He got his coaching feet wet at Ohio State and is back at his first love.
Next man up!
The ref had just asked Craft if it was true that he had just recently gotten engaged.....his daughter wanted to know.
Loving's basketball intellect is on a completely different level than that of Q's.
Loving has no psychological issues.
Loving allows the game to come to him. Q worries about being noticed enough to be a 1st round draft choice this year.
I can't believe Ohio State fans that have been around more than 2 years. This is how it works with Glenville football players. Ginn likes attention and his team, his program, his school, to get noticed. How better than to keep his best players in the news every year running up to signing day. Never an early commit, Recruiting experts thinking they know where they will go, but not the inkling of certainty. No interviews of substance keeping everyone in the dark. What happens every year?? The vast majority of worthy Glenville players go to Ohio State, yet every year the ones who can't remember history are gnashing their teeth and bitting their fingernails just sure this year will be different and they will go elsewhere. See how silly, Glenville's game is is not worth the angst.
A good career. Worked hard to become a good receiver. Made many good/great plays the past 2 years. Forget about the fumble, those things happen. BUT in the last game of his career, he made the worst decision of his career. He couldn't be a team player in his last game of his career. He wanted to be an individual hero in the last game of his career. It was a 35 yard punt with a lot of hang time and he can't put his hand up in the air and wave it? That was all his team wanted. That was all his team needed. That was all the coaches were asking for..... nothing more.
One HUGE issue cost the game. Philly Brown, a Senior forgot there is no I in team. Or is he stupid and could not see it was a 35 yard punt with A LOT of hang time. Call for a fair catch, instead of wanting to be a hero and return an impossible punt for a TD. A fair catch is all Ohio State needed and Brown was incapable. You can't fix stupid.
More stupidity. Not coaches, Corner Backs. The 3rd game in a row where CB's showed Junior High coverage technique. Same old, same old. They have their hands all over the receivers, they never turn around and look for the ball when the receivers look for the ball. Give up TD's or get pass interference calls. Some sound as stupid as they look, blaming coaches for cornerback play that has been taught to them for 8 years and they are still incapable.
