how weird is it that we have 2 guys from Cass Tech in this class and nobody from Glenville. Not complaining just speaks to Coombs job as a recruiter up there. 

Anyway love to hear that he's a grinder and loves the game. Gotta love the guys that take care of business. Welcome to where the grass is greenest.

Also this terrifies me for our ability to hang on to Warinner. I mean a stud O-line coach like him would be the perfect fit up there where they pride themselves on O-line play and running the ball. Scares me more than Kansas ever did.

Shoot TSUN should have given him a call. I would've rather seen him stay in the B1G than go out of conference. Wisconsin needs to get their shit together and pay the man. Also are Wisconsin's admissions requirements that much more difficult than any other B1G school?

This. I don't think it has anything to do with "trust funds" it's all to do with the competitive nature of the program. Hoke is all about being best friends with players which is why they love him but that doesn't win football games. Compare that with a guy like Urban. The whole culture around the program is built upon competition and the fact that it's unacceptable to lose. Smiling while you're losing just wouldn't happen with Urbs

Im sorry but A&M a favorite? I just gotta believe our offense would put about a 100 (read: a lot) points on that swiss cheese D. I can see the arguments for the other teams but a 2 loss A&M team a favorite over an undefeated OSU team? what is going on?

Comment 12 Nov 2013

I would have no problem with OSU offering Herman 1mil+ to keep him around and put him in a league with the Chad Morris' and Kirby Smarts' of the world. Hes an all star coach and as others have said I would love for him to stay till he gets a big time head coaching gig. 

Comment 12 Nov 2013

My question is, if Fickell leaves does he take Vrabel with his as his best friend/DC? and I have always thought Withers would be the first to leave. Hes already been a Head Coach and hes got so much experience plus zero ties to the state of Ohio, I could see a school like UVA come calling. 

This scenario would lead to a completely new defensive staff plus the idea of potentially losing Herman as well. 

I love having great coaches but dang thats a lot to potentially lose and then replace in one offseason.

All I can say is im gonna enjoy them as long as we have them and if we can get that crystal ball then all is good in my book

Nope I still expect us to run the table and hope to see 'Bama or Oregon in the title game. All the SOS talk will cause the media to proclaim how over rated we are and how much better the other team is and Urban comes out with a pissed off football team ala Florida '06. The defense has some work to do but they are talented and I have confidence that by Jan. 6th they'll be ready. 

Prove me right boys 

Comment 23 Aug 2013

I agree with TOAD in that there is a lot of turnover, more so than the tressesl era. I guess I'm just not used to kids wanting to transfer FROM OSU, usually it's TO OSU. As a fan I just don't understand how anybody could leave the program I love so much but regardless I wish the best to him in his future endeavors.

Comment 11 Aug 2013

I don't like this question. I went with roby cause of the suspension plus I think if we have the national championship type caliber season I think we're gonna have Braxton is gonna have to have an epic season and so is shazier cause the lbs are unproven besides him. Roby could miss time with suspension and the secondary is pretty deep so some of those guys might steal some picks from him. Hopefully all 3 are 1st teamers and holding a crystal ball at the end but what do I know

Comment 18 Jun 2013

I think its easy for us to sit back and say you would offer a couple kids in order to get a stud but I don't think it's that easy. Those 85(82) scholarships go really quick and are too precious to a coach trying to develop depth to be offering package deals to kids. As acrossthefield pointed out, recruiting is a crapshoot at best. So if you're offering a package deal for 3 kids to get 1 you really want and that 1 doesn't pan out, you've now lost 3 ships.

Comment 09 Jun 2013

Does anybody know any specifics of his eligibility and how many years he has? Also does the fact that he played professionally in Australia affect his status in any way?

Kid sounds like a stud and will be a huge boost to our special teams and our championship run I just hope everything goes smoothly NCAA-wise. Never know what those clowns are gonna do next.

Shoot forget lebron. Add Oden, draft Otto porter, move Varejao to the 4 and you've got a nice young starting lineup with Kyrie and Dion

Comment 16 May 2013

Give it a couple of years. It seems like every school here in VA has a program starting in the first grade. Public, private, wealthy areas, poor areas. Doesn't matter. The sport really overlaps well with football as a spring sport which is why I think it will spread in Ohio. Other than OL and maybe DTs there is a position in lacrosse that a football player can play. Plus it's a good way to stay in shape and be able to hit people in the spring. 

Comment 16 May 2013

As an OSU fan growing up in VA I played football and lacrosse much like a ton of athletes in Virginia and have been hoping for OSU to get a good lacrosse team for a long long time. This season has been so fun for me to follow and I hope the team can make it to the semis and beyond. Also the Big Ten league would be huge for OSU lax. Being able to play against Maryland and potentially Hopkins in league play would be huge for recruiting the Maryland and Northern VA hotbeds. It would bring more validity to the program. 

Looking forward to the future of the lacrosse program and the game on Sat. 

Go Bucks!

One thing I noticed is he has a bad habit of picking up his front foot off the line instead of stepping forward with his back foot which wastes critical time and energy. It's a simple fix but it will do wonders for his ability to get separation off the line making him much more explosive. I like this kids potential cause with some coaching he could be a legit outside wideout.
