HS
Cooper's picture

Me thinks you all are taking that comment way too seriously. Top 3 classes for the past three years, then there was a likelihood of losing Battle, Harrison, Nester, and losing momentum on a 2019 class that could have finished 15-20. In my mind, gaining momentum conparatively salvages that potential gloomy finish.

I think you guys are getting angry just to get angry. It’s not like I’m blaming Ryan Day, I just think it’s okay to say that a class potentially being ranked that low after signing day is objectively a middling class. To be fair, it’s also hard to expect to do any better with what just happened the past six months. 

This is definitely where I parked my car.

I'd tend to agree with you from further out people are reading tea leaves, but at this point Harrison knows where hes going and at least some people around him know as well. You often hear things from the 'insider' types after a commitment they knew or someone else knew beforehand but they couldn't actually say what they knew. Birm used to do that from time to time. I'd think theres a reason to the big names switching when they have. Or maybe I'm just being hopeful, we will see tomorrow.

HS
swflbuckeye1's picture

This typically happens the day before signing day or the day of when you see a wave of CBs. Meaning they told the coaches where they are going. Remember Nicholas Petit Frere last year. The day before NSD the same thing happened. Remember Jackson Carman. The morning of NSD all the CBS to Clemson. Not saying he is for sure going to Ohio state. But looking at past situations this looks like what is going on. He told the coaches where he is going and thus the influx of CBs. To change a CB this late would not make much sense unless you were sure since you would lose all your points from getting in your pick early on the other team.

I'm not crazy about the fields thing. But I'd think the shockwaves of landing Harrison, and being in the convo with Fields potentially would send a message to the guys wavering a bit, that even without Urban, this is still a death star machine to be reckoned with

Fields may be able to transfer without sitting out because of the incident with the baseball player using a racial slur. He can claim he is leaving because of the environment and he would have a point.

That wasn't Patterson's argument though, he claims he was mislead by the coaches during the recruiting process.  90% of 4 and 5 star prospects can say the same thing, including Fields.

HS
Atl_Buckeye72's picture

Patterson was mislead by the coaching staff regarding the $hit storm that was about to hit from for NCAA violations not over if a coach told him he would have playing time. I understand that if he did transfer to the good guys and Haskins is gone it would benefit us. That doesn't make it right

HS
CTBuckeyeFan's picture

Assuming the Ole Miss coaches knew what they were facing at the time, which isn't a certainty.  They 100% knew what they were doing but they didn't know how much the NCAA knew at that point.  Not a reason for Shea to get special treatment, which then sets a precedent for future transfers.  Same with Antonio Williams and Jack Wohlabaugh getting immediate eligibility.

HS
Triv's picture

Patterson's argument was that he was misled regarding the allegations against Ole Miss. They undersold to him the sanctions that would be levied against the program. It is a 100% different scenario, considering there are no impending sanctions against UGA that we know of. The racism thing is a possibility to get his waiver, but to pretend it's remotely similar to the Patterson situation isn't accurate in the slightest. Trevon Grimes also isn't a similar comparison, as he moved closer to home to support a sick family member (Fields is from Georgia). I don't remember the circumstances around Antonio WIlliams' transfer, but he also transferred back to his home state.

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

HS
EvanstonBuckeye's picture

I'm not sure he would want to go there, but the player was dismissed from the team, though not the university; so there's some damage control by UGA after the incident, but perhaps not enough for some's liking. I think I would have expected expulsion, though I have no idea where that stands legally.

HS
TheBadOwl's picture

Fields was called the n-word by a fellow student-athlete and I'd wager that it was far from the only time that he's been called that by UGA fans. He understandably wants to get away from that (no one should be subjected to being called racial slurs) and would apparently prefers to land at Ohio State. 

And yet… your reaction to this news is that he should either just like, deal with the racism?  

The one-year transfer rule is meant to punish/deter athletes from repeated or unnecessary transfers. The NCAA, in this case, will (rightly) rule that Fields should not be punished for wanting to get away from racial slurs, which are disgusting behavior and inexcusable in 2018. By saying that he shouldn't get the waiver, you're saying that he should be punished for not just dealing with that racism. 

Setting aside all of the other factors here (Fields being potentially the highest-rated recruit OSU has ever landed, his transfer being motivated by playing time, what it would mean for Tate Martell, etc.) the slurs are something he shouldn't have to deal with. He shouldn't be punished for wanting to go somewhere where he won't be called the n-word.

HS
Atl_Buckeye72's picture

And yet… your reaction to this news is that he should either just like, deal with the racism?  
 

This is the most ridiculous post I have read here!  First off, MY opinion on this has zero to do with racism. My comments are in regards to the NCAA transfer rules (which if anyone understands them please let me know) and how they applied to Patterson vs. a kid who isn't happy with the playing time he is receiving. Yes, I am saying that Fields is leaving due to playing time and seeing that he won't be the starter at UGA for 2 more years. 

Next, you are painting a picture like the KKK are burning crosses on this guys lawn. Yes, there was an incident of an idiot in the stands shouting something wildly inappropriate that was handled swiftly, harshly and appropriately (I'm pretty sure that student-athlete who was a top notch baseball player was expelled). You don't think there are idiots in the shoe shouting inappropriate things? I live in Atlanta and am surrounded by UGA fans. This fan base was itching to see their shiny new recruit come on the field and steal the show, and absolutely supported this kid. What this guy in the stands did absolutely didn't reflect the sentiment towards Fields by the fan base!

Lastly, In case you haven't noticed 90% (just guessing this percentage) of the UGA team is African American. Do you think that all these players would flock to that team if it was drowning in racism as you are suggesting?

HS
gumtape's picture

This is the pertinent NCAA transfer rule that allows for immediate eligibility:

1. The transfer is due to documented mitigating circumstances that are outside the student-athlete’s control and directly impact the health, safety and well-being of the student-athlete;

Also, Sasser was kicked off the baseball team but he was allowed to continue being enrolled at Georgia as a student.

High and tight boo boo

HS
buckeyeupnorth's picture

Unless GA is allowing Sasser to stalk and harass Fields, this is not a reason to allow immediate eligibility for playing time at another school. 

Ga dealt appropriately with Sasser on Field's behalf. If the atmosphere at GA is so racist and toxic that it affects the health, well being and safety of a student, then the NCAA, and the Dept of Education need to get involved to the point of sanctions for both the school and the athletic department.

The above listed rule is used in cases where the athlete wants to transfer closer to home due to an immediate family members illness. Or if the athlete has a stalker, etc. coming in from off campus, threats, etc.  As other posters have stated, Fields had a lot of support on campus from the student body, there are not racist buffoons running all over campus, causing minority students to run for their lives. 

Patterson received an eligibility waiver when U/M provided him with unlimited legal counsel to sue the NCAA. His case had some merit as to what he was told by coaches, etc. regarding sanctions looming against Ole Miss.  It still took months of mediation between his lawyers and the NCAA lawyers to resolve his situation, one I'm sure the lawyers from U/M planned to take to an actual court proceedings had he been denied eligibility. The rumor currently is that the same lawyer for Patterson has been in discussions with Fields.  We'll see if he gets immediate eligibility. Which if he does, it will continue to open the Pandora's box of coaches (think Dabo) contacting players offering playing time in exchange for transfers. Which is what the transfer rule that is currently in place is designed to stop. 

HS
avail31678's picture

Why did Antonio Williams get immediate playing time when he transferred to UNC?  I don't recall him having a valid reason.  I feel like the NCAA is inconsistent (surprise) with transfers lately, and also being more lenient.  I understand your points, but it's up to the NCAA if they want to let Fields transfer with no penalty.

For the record, I'm glad it worked out for Williams.  

HS
Atl_Buckeye72's picture

The NCAA has shown a tendency to grant waivers to kids the want to get back closer to their home, even if there isn't a sickness in the family like Grimes last year. I know that UGA got one is year with Demetris Robertson who was granted a waiver to play immediately after being at Cal for a year. Seems like this was the case for Williams as well.

HS
TheBadOwl's picture

 Yes, I am saying that Fields is leaving due to playing time and seeing that he won't be the starter at UGA for 2 more years. 

Even if that is his primary motivation, he still has a case because he was called a racial slur by a fellow student athlete and would then understandably have a case for extenuating circumstances.

Next, you are painting a picture like the KKK are burning crosses on this guys lawn.

You're moving the goalposts here.

There are different forms of racism. Just because one (cross burnings) is more threatening and menacing doesn't minimize the severity of another (slurs). The "oh, it could be worse, at least the KKK isn't burning crosses in his yard, clearly it's not that bad" take is not a good look, my guy.

Whether it's the KKK burning the cross or a colleague (in this case, a baseball player) calling him a racial slur, Justin Fields should not have to deal with it, full stop.

Lastly, In case you haven't noticed 90% (just guessing this percentage) of the UGA team is African American.  Do you think that all these players would flock to that team if it was drowning in racism as you are suggesting?

This is a ridiculous point. Just gonna borrow your logic here: Mississippi has the highest percentage of African-American population among the 50 states. Clearly, that means that nothing racist has ever happened there ever, right? 

I also did not say that the UGA football team was "drowning in racism" – I just said that Fields will (rightly) use the fact that he was subjected to racial slurs by another student (and fellow athlete) as a reason for an expedited transfer, and that the NCAA will rightly approve his appeal.

Has any PSU insider placed a CB pick to OSU? It appears that Michigan knows he’s not going there and so people think that automatically means he’s going to OSU but Kurelic said it was an OSU/PSU battle. I’m concerned that people are jumping to conclusions. If PSU insiders submit CB’s to OSU then I might get my hopes up. I guess we will know for sure in about 24 hours.

Last week, I wrote on here that Harrison was a DONE DEAL to Michigan...and I believe he was.   My friend (ex teammate) is a coach at Olentangy and he just texted me "  I think we got him - some (stuff) is going down at Michigan!"   He will not elaborate.

I am shocked...he was gone. 

He is a project - INCREDIBLE athlete, but not "mean" in the least. He is NOT a big hitter, but "drags" down players all over the field.  His "ceiling" is unreal...  Also, needs to improve his "football motor"....

Harrison is 100% a project - nowhere NEAR ready to play.   He has UNREAL athleticism and potential, but he is not a monster.   He is somewhat passive and not a game changer.   Add 45lbs and get him motivated and you have something special....

I have been thinking that Harrison was going elsewhere ever since he delayed his announcement.  I thought for sure he would decide during the early signing period, enroll early, and leave Columbus as soon as possible.  I know someone fairly close to him that was even telling me this, but I kept hoping that he would somehow change his mind.

I'm cautiously optimistic, but that same person is now telling me that he has decided to stay home.  I have no idea exactly what happened, but I do hear that he likes Ryan Day and that the result of The Game in November weighed heavily on his mind.  Let's hope that we get great news tomorrow and a 5* BOOM!!

Harrison made an unofficial visit to the WHC during the week prior to the B1G championship game.  I read that as a real plus for the Buckeyes and I hope the positivity continues.  

OSU is the standard for the B1G championship.  PSU and TTUN are chasing us and telling recruits that they need them to catch up to the Buckeyes.  Wouldn't a blue chipper like ZH rather come play for the team that is the #1 and not second tier?  

I also believe that Coach Johnson is key to Harrison's decision.

For the record, I don’t really have an opinion on him one way or the other. 

On the recruiting threads, the developer and driver of those has asked that people stay on topic. He tried his normal stuff in there, strayed, and continued to do so after being asked not to.

Knarcisi - i'm not a moderator, so i don't make such 'requests'.

But for anyone, it's a tad tougher to "stay on topic" when the Authority does not respond to repeated questions about what is on topic.

I also don't claim 'relevance' on my say so.  I try to cite tOSU football sources, including recruiting, and basic educational / psychological methodologies.

As for Spoonerbuck23... i look forward to the day we [and any one else] choose to discuss issues relevant to all in the interest of Buckeye values and education.

Obviously I have no idea and this is all speculation and conjecture... but with none of the local OSU recruiting guys jumping on board with the crystal ball picks yet, it makes me feel like Sam Webb was told Michigan is out, and after making his OSU crystal ball selection, the normal "group-think" mob mentality ensued for those who don't have the pulse of the recruitment.  The only saving grace to make me feel more comfortable is the one Penn State analyst who made his pick for Ohio State.

Obviously the majority of the time you can follow the crystal balls to see where a kid is going, but in this case where it seems almost no one knows what Zach is thinking or planning... it is difficult to believe suddenly all these analysts are in the know and none of the OSU guys are.

HS
actionstanleyjackson's picture

Still think the local OSU guys are the source of the information to everyone behind the scenes but do not want to come out on their own and say it perhaps because they have been asked to keep it quiet. I know BK is close to everyone at Olentangy and him spilling it would hurt some friendships. Bill Greene is at 247 also as well as Alex. Birm has been a guy that has tried not to ruin kids moments in the past. 

The fact Wiltfong has said osu as well as one of the top guys at 247 says that they are trying locally to keep some suspense

I have not heard a why on what's going on up there, but there is a lot of internal frustration going on up there, maybe Harbaugh wearing down his players after year 4. There's a thread on mgo with a few comments in the OP from former players hinting at internal feuding or something of the sort. Remember the John o Korn tweet over the summer ? It's unusual they've had a lot of transfers between their 16 and 17 classes.

I think Harrison is going to pick Ohio State. I think Larry Johnson’s history of developing men and football players, combined with the knowledge that he’ll have time to develop not be thrust into the spotlight right away as a freshman, will be the reason. I think Ryan Day’s low-key demeanor aligns with Harrison more than Meyer’s high-intensity ways did.

So, final call? I think Zach Harrison picks Ohio State. But I know Penn State is a real option and a major threat.

Birm says he thinks it is OSU but is of the mindset that it is 50-50 now because only Michigan is out at this point. Nobody knows for sure at this point, other than maybe Harrison though. Wiltfong and even the Michigan insider are really just probably flipping back to their original guess.

As things went to Michigan and then that got the boot. PSU had a good in home. It does seem that Birm is probably the most negative at the moment, but it is one of those things.

That it is going to be a press conference sort of thing now is probably a good sign too. Probably.

I have to feel that one huge factor in all of this was the number of Michigan players choosing to not play in the bowl game.  At last count, as I recall, it was 4 or 5 of their draft eligible players.  One or two is understandable, especially if the guy is a first round lock.  With this many guys, it seems to indicate that it is not the family atmosphere up there, Jimmy has been trying to portray.  Ohio State seems to be trending the opposite way, with Nick being the lone exception

Bosa was an exception in my book. I wasn’t happy he left the program as I wanted him to stay around with the guys, but he wasn’t going to be able to play anyway. 

HS

I agree, I feel he would have played if he was healthy.

Welllllll -- it's been a looooong road following this one no doubt, but we will know for sure @ 12:30 tomorrow... 

Hopefully, if the momentum is true for OSU and he signs with us it is a MAJOR WIN for Coach Day, for OSU, and for all of 'Buckeye Nation'...

BUT --- I am most happy for Zach and his family....

This means Zach will be mentored by the best DL coach in the nation in LJ -- who does so in a classy, non-profanity ,patient way that is truly special. I am happy for Zach and his family -- Zach gets his freedom living on his own on campus, but his parents also get the gift of just a short drive to see him play 'live' -- everyone wins on this one...

In the end...

It was likely a case of maybe realizing he was trying way too hard to find reasons to not go to OSU, when it is quite simply truly the best option for him and his family all along -- hopefully we welcome another great young man and family to Buckeye Nation tomorrow just past Noon -- Amen!!

BuckeyeGuy1973's picture

From what I read earlier, some of the trending CB's back to OSU had to do with Meyer retiring ... that the Harrisons were not fans of Meyer and the Zach Smith saga ...

Whatever the reason, OSU fans cherish OSU wins with Ohio talent ... not that we don't recruit the country (because we do) ... We need the best talent to stay in Ohio ... And hopefully Day upticks that trend just a bit (yes, I'm refering to Jackson Carman last year) ...

O ... H ...!!

Carmen wanted to leave Ohio. He said many times that if OSU was not in Ohio. He would have committed. Sometimes kids just want to leave home for school. It is just going to happen.

HS

I believe Carmen's family connection to Clemson were a lot more stronger than anyone knew.  His family had lived there and his dad had been pushing him to attend there since the kid was 13.

"We certainly keep score, at all times, of those wins [on the recruiting trail]." -Urban Meyer after taking Mike Weber from a Michigan pipeline in Detroit

Wash, rinse, repeat. The rivalry will never be balanced again. There are just better players in Ohio (that we have no shot at) and we have not been able to consistently keep the best players in Michigan, well, in Michigan.

BUT HEY, WE GOT JOEY VELAZQUEZ! GO TO HELL, Cincinnati and Kent

Wow - that is as satisfying as the look on Ed W’s face as his O-line underperforms against OSU and he can’t figure out why.

2:30 AM update. Per 247 Sports, 90% of CBs now point to the good guys, with 6% still on ttun. 

Steve Lorenz has joined wtih his colleague at TheMichiganInsider.com in CBing ZH to us.

PSU predictors Sean Fitz and Matt de Bear are going with the Bucks now.

Pundits, pickers and prognosticators from sites and sources focusing on athletics from such programs as Kentucky, Texas, South Carolina, Northwestern, and Ole Miss are on the Buckeye bandwagon.

Call me old school but I still love the days where we waited until the US Army all-american or on the February signing day to see who recruits picked. Throw down three or four or five hats and wait for the selection. I loathe the CBs on 24/7, it kills the suspense 98% of the time.

Give me hat selections back, no early signing period and in school live streams of announcements....because without this, we would have never known that Meg selected Stanford.

No such thing as a bad win

Information is too easy to share and obtain now--and the Early Signing Period is before those games.

You are wrong. Meyer is a mellow guy. Pretty sure he was talking about the two guys that are expected to sign with OSU today. Not about any mystery players. Not all college football fans or anything pay that much attention to recruiting or anything like it.

Just take a step back.

Literally no one has a CB for him to PSU and multiple recruitniks have blatantly said he's picked OSU.

Also, what incentive would Meyer have to dampen expectations of the fans?  If you're right I will come right back in here to eat my crow, but you and the other guy above and out yo minds.
