I like this topic, but since its a Monday, I'm struggling to formulate coherent thoughts.

All I'll say is that I think the specific subset of fans, like us on 11W, that follow recruiting in this fashion have the ability and intelligence to temper our expectations of these kids coming into the college programs that we follow.

I do not like how the new recruiting game has given the ability for kids to publicize their college choice at press conferences and over the top announcement shows.  I believe this is a manifestation of our selfie obsessed social media culture and can only lead to bigger problems other than fan expectations, which relates back to this quote above

I'd bet that most recruits are not emotionally/mentally equipped at age 16-18 to handle the modern recruiting process in a healthy, positive way unless they are surrounded by really good adult.

There are a handful of us over on the grand strand. Got some friends moving to Greenville, looking forward to spending more time upstate.

The site was down. I was unable to refresh the screen for bout an hour since the original article. 

Soooooo in that case: BOOOOOOOM BABY!!! It's a great day in buckeye nation.

You're right, dunno why I was thinking Smith on that -- probably just because of all the other catches he made in that fashion.  I still stand by saying that DS can adjust easily to the ball.

Comment 21 Jul 2015

Agreed SM.  My play that wasn't a play, that should have been a play was the early one handed grab Smith made in the Sugar Bowl that was ruled incomplete.  To say he doesn't adjust to the ball is just crazy.

As a stage 3c testicular cancer survivor at the age of 24, zach is at one of the best places for treatment.  The James hospital is a hell of a place and they treat their buckeye students in the best way possible. Good luck and good vibes his way.

I have a 65 inch samsung thats now gone thru three moves and is currently and has been previously mounted above gas fireplaces.  No problems whatsoever.  I agree w/ cc here and most others that have mentioned it: smart tv isn't really worth it.  We only use it for netflix and that has been phased out since I figured out where netflix hides on ps4.  I am not a fan of vizio, i have two under 40inches and while the picture is great, the tvs themselves are bulky and the volume, imho, isnt flexible -- ie., volume 2 is perfect for nighttime watching, anything higher is absurdly loud.

save yourself the trouble and regret down the line, get a samsung and be happy.

I wouldn't mind seeing two B1G teams in the playoffs, but the remainder of the league will shoot itself in the foot at some point late in the season to prevent that happening.  Plus, I really enjoyed seeing competition from four different conferences in the playoffs last year instead of the predestined all SEC playoff -- its better for the sport if there are teams from four different conferences.
