If you look at past depth charts, Urban tends to put multiple people listed as first string separated by an OR at positions that have multiple guys that will play a lot 

Example:
HB - Curtis Samuel
OR Dontre Wilson

Akers is a take no matter what. Dobbins committed to the class when Sibley was already committed, and the schools he's expressed interest in taking visits to should Akers commit already have RB commits of their own. Look at our RB depth this year (a true freshman is second on the two deep), taking 2 guys is something Urban is interested in.

If Dobbins was promised we wouldn't take Akers, that's a different story. But I'm betting that promise wasn't made and Akers is a talent you don't pass on if he wants in

He's played in a total of 6 games in 3 years (he redshirted his freshman year, so he is a RS Junior this year) at Bama and has 16 catches for 160 yards and 2 TDs on his career. He is expected to contribute this year though

My work blocked this for "potential nudity" soooo if I get a call from HR I'll refer them to you KB

Pretty sure with Bosa's family connections he will be getting NFL-level training the entire time he is holding out, the only thing he will be missing is live reps (which like I pointed out, injured players aren't getting either)

Comment 24 Aug 2016

Would he lose money? Yes. But I don't think it would be "extremely hard" to keep in football shape. Just think of all the athletes who have major injuries and come back the following year in top form? Now eliminate the rehab portion of the injury time and replace it with football training. Joey is going to be just fine no matter where -- or when -- he plays

Comment 24 Aug 2016

Playoff set a precedent last year by leaving OSU out, a team who doesn't even make their conference championship game won't make the playoffs (regardless of whether or not they are a top 4 team). So there's not much hope for both OSU and MSU to make it

Comment 24 Aug 2016

Our depth this year is not much different than our depth the last several years.

2016: Weber then question marks, probably Samuel steps in
2015: Zeke then a bunch of question marks, probably Samuel
2014: Zeke/Samuel were largely question marks themselves until the end of the season
2013: Hyde then Jordan Hall, then a true freshman in Zeke

We'll be fine no matter who lines up at RB, they are all dynamic athletes

He tore his ACL in early November. He should be going full speed 9 months later, as standard recovery time with modern medicine and rehab is anywhere from 6-8 months depending on the severity of the injury. And given Nick is a superior physical specimen to most people, I'd wager he's been at 100% for a while now.

Doesn't mean the coaches aren't taking it easy on with him and being cautious, but I'd be willing to bet Nick (and his doctor) will tell you he is fully recovered

Comment 23 Aug 2016

I'd rather not get in the business of Harbaugh-ing kids out of the class, and the B1G requires 4 year scholarships so the only way to "make room" is for Urban to sit down with a kid and tell him the playing time just isn't going to be there and leave it up to the kid. We don't just yank players scholarships at Ohio State

If we landed all 4 of Akers, Okudah, Browning, and Tufele that would put us at 325.25. Not sure if we have room for four more though

Comment 23 Aug 2016

I think Bama beats USC, but don't sleep on the Trojans. USC should be loaded offensively this year, Max Browne will have a lot of toys to play with quarterbacking that offense

Comment 23 Aug 2016

Barnett is pro style, but he was a 5*. He's a RS Freshman. Cooper Bateman was a high 4* and he's a Senior. And David Cornwell was another top 5 pro style QB who is a sophomore but I think he got hurt during camp. Either way, I'm shocked a true freshman beat them all out. And with Tua coming in next year Barnett could definitely be on transfer watch
