Have their coaches post highlight packages on YouTube, that's the first step. Coaches usually don't evaluate without some tape. If they're special, the media will catch on as well.
Ummmm...Darron was never recruited by Ohio State as a quarterback. He earned his offer at S/LB, having played safety in high school as well.
I'm a college student at OSU and our local whisky selection isn't exactly ideal, I even went as far as to make a tracker on my website over the summer of contract liquor stores for when I'm out and about around the state.
I haven't had anything crazy special as a result of the lack of supply, but I'm a big fan of Evan Williams Single Barrel, Four Roses Single Barrel, Old-Granddad 114, and EC12 (all of which are commonplace). I've been looking for the Makers Cask Strength as well as ECBP, to no avail. We have a bottle of Weller 12 but I find it to be nothing special taste wise.
/r/bourbon is doing a release of a single barrel High West (Double Rye w/Campfire aging) that I'll be getting shortly as well, so that'll be my first true prize.
So if it were Rivals, Scout, 247, or The Ozone that would make it legitimate right?
BR has a history of having shitty contributors (because they don't really pay their "contributors"), but Ben Axelrod is a good writer (and definitely has...personality as far as beat writers go). He wrote for BSB, Scout, Rivals, and The Ozone. It's not some random fan off the streets. The piece is well written and makes good points, don't write it off just because of the publishing platform. BR is owned by Turner Sports and has made some serious hires as of late. Look at the author before you attack the credibility of the piece.
I mean it has a Nike logo bottom right, so I think it's safe to assuming it was an actual mock up. Not sure about the odds it'll come to fruition though.
his first full season focusing only on defense
Ummm, I'm not sure what you're talking about. He spent his entire redshirt year (last year) playing LB and bulking up from his QB/WR frame from high school, so he was only focusing on defense. Prior to that, he earned his offer as a S/LB and has stuck there since he got to campus and has gained weight and muscle tremendously.
So does Hubbard (LJ Scott & George Hill).
Nova is an okay passer, but he's turnover prone. They'll put up some points (~20), but he'll turn it over far too often to keep up with J.T. & Company.
We tried our best to subdue it when Nebraska visited (we even warned the game broadcasting crew to turn down the mic they planted in the student section during kickoffs); unfortunately drunk students tend to want to do things more when you tell them not to do something. It is what it is, it's hard (impossible) to stop 20,000+ students from doing it, so there's no point in criticizing it or praising it. It's here to stay.
I think PSU is going to be on par with last year's killing. They don't have an OL or a running game. Their interior DL may present some issues, but that's about it. Hackenburg is prone to sacks and bad picks (or so it seems).
I didn't see anything wrong with his comment. It was witty.
Are you serious? There's a difference between discipline and potential trauma. Robert Smith sums it up nicely:
Insane to believe hitting a child, esp. with a switch, is ok because it happened to you as a child. Potential mental/physical harm too great— robert smith (@ESPNRobertSmith) September 12, 2014
All of the calls were within the bounds of the rulebook. Complain about the rules, not the fouls for being enforced.
Defenseless receiver rule? Check. Leading with the crown on a QB? Check. Elbow to the head? Check. They weren't blown calls. Bad rules? Possibly.
I mean if you're willing to bet straight up, I will put any amount of money on it.
There were some...interesting playcalls but I don't think Herman resigning now would fix our offensive woes.
Ezekiel Elliott, 121 net rushing yards.
You're probably looking at 2017 (Danny Clark from Massilon). http://ohiostate.247sports.com/Season/2016-Football/Commits
