Those are gonna be some of the best games in college football this year. Great venues to check out too. I know we all want guys to commit early and end their recruitments but if I had the chance to parent, coach, mentor any of these top athletes I would absolutely tell them to take advantage of being able to go see 5 of the best venues/games in college football, get the red carpet treatment, and not have to spend a dime. Once in a lifetime opportunity

My coach played MLB against Eddie George when Eddie was at FUMA and was assigned to just shadow him the whole game. On one play my coach met him in the hole and Eddie hit him so hard it bent his metal face mask. My coach still has the helmet in his classroom.                                           

Best guy I ever played against was Russell Wilson. Dude was precise and methodical at running a team as he is in the pros. He just never made a mistake in high school ball...ever. Also played him in basketball and while he is short he is absolutely jacked. Massive biceps. Other than that I played against a bunch of other guys who played Acc. Best player I played with was Ed Reynolds the safety for Stanford and now the Eagles. He was a freshman my senior year and the kid was an absolute stud then. His dad used to come around and he was an NFL linebacker for years so Ed got it honest. Real great family though

The main difference is that our bad season was a huge anomaly. It was literally one bad season. The year before we were 12-1. TSUN has been relatively mediocre for about 6 or 7 seasons. Their roster needs more work in my opinion. Yes they have recruited well but the development of those players just doesn't seem to have been there. Maybe he shocks the world and pulls off a 10 or 11 win season but I definitely think it'll be more along the lines of 8-4.

That's what happens when you decide to go play for the defending National Champion. Buckeyes are big everywhere right now

Comment 21 Jan 2015

Yes he had the pick to end the game against Bama but if he didn't bite on that double move by White? on the previous drive for a 70yrd completion or however long that big pass play was, they wouldn't have been in that situation to begin with. He has to know in that situation that the last thing you want to do is give up the big play so sit back, let them complete the pass then come up and make a tackle. I know easier said than done but its one of those plays a safety at OSU should be able to make. I'm not willing to condemn him the way that Oregon guy did but I wouldn't be opposed to a guy like Erick Smith getting a little more run at S next year if he doesn't improve on those kinds of mistakes in the offseason. 

Comment 21 Jan 2015

I live in Richmond VA and out of my general friend group I have two Tennessee grads, a Bama fan from Philly, go figure, and a few guys from NC/SC that went to Wake UNC Duke or other smaller schools around those states but were all about the SEC/Oregon and didnt think OSU had a chance. I am now the proud owner of 4 cases of Budweiser and a Growler of a craft brew of my choosing. Everybody was so confident they were betting me left and right that OSU would get dominated. The Tennessee guys were surprisingly the ones the most pissed about how things turned out. They gave me the whole "Urban ran away from the SEC" line and much more. I think they've been riding the coattails of everybody else for so long they have to defend themselves now somehow. The Bama fan was the most reasonable and just told me that EZE is a beast. He was kinda pissed at Kiffin's play calling but for the most part was more congratulatory than anything else. I honestly don't think any of them have watched an OSU game this whole season and were just basing their opinion on what they saw on TV and obviously that hasnt been the most favorable to our Buckeyes. Still for a state out of the SEC footprint there are a shocking amount of SEC fans here. Needless to say I have been wearing a piece of Buckeye gear every day since last Monday and it has been glorious. Still waiting on my National Champions T-shirt and koozie. Im gonna use that koozie every day till next season.

who exactly have they put in the NFL besides Aldon Smith? I know shane ray is gonna be a top pick but who knows how that is actually gonna turn out? I think OSU and Coach Johnson himself have a much better track record/history of successful NFL guys

Comment 07 Jan 2015

This. They now have a potential starting lineup where 3/5 players are strong on defense. theyll score plenty of points but the D needed work. Now just gotta get everybody back healthy to see if Blatt can figure out how all the pieces fit/ rotations work together. solid moves all around though

Comment 07 Jan 2015

I think Fickell was put into a tough situation. How many other coaches had their first ever head coaching gig be Ohio State? I think he has learned a tremendous amount by working under both Tressel and Meyer and will be a solid head coach whatever team calls. He has learned a ton about how to run a program from Meyer and that is really important. Success on the field is a combination of so many different things that don't necessarily come to mind. Strength programs, nutrition, motivational tactics, creating chemistry, organization of schedules, recruiting coordination and so many more that I don't have a clue about but Meyer is a master at all of these. Fickell will be a good HC someday and Tressel and Meyer will be to thank

and Jamal Marcus. Imagine being able to rotate between Bosa, Spence, and Marcus and then having Miller and Frazier come in as needed. Thats a lot of missing depth that could really help out against this uptempo Oregon team.

Comment 01 Jan 2015

really pumped about Dre'Mont. He looks to be a guy that can contribute right away. Also wondering if he puts on more weight and moves inside ala Washington. either way he looks like one of the "gems" of this recruiting class

Comment 30 Dec 2014

That's what I was gonna say. Imagine some of these SEC teams playing in that Minnesota game. There should be a couple bowls in B1G country

Comment 10 Dec 2014

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. 

Comment 10 Dec 2014

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.

Comment 10 Dec 2014

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?

Comment 12 Nov 2014

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
