The coaching staff is slaying the recruiting trail! We don’t regroup, we don’t start over, we don’t rebuild, we don’t even reload! Just keep that ass whippin train moving forward!

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Mr. Ransom, the *NINTH* Top 100 pledge, and the skunk weasels have HOW many ?

Oh the salty tears, choke on hairball.

Day & staff have 2020...Vision !

now, if we can avoid the yearly blowout loss, then we'll be relevant in the playoffs again too!

We had a bunch of highly rated kids last year too and look how our defense played. I'm more concerned with our coaches than our players. We've always had talent

Then why are you even following recruiting if it doesn't matter who we get?

Is 6 the new release time or is this late once again?

Oh, nope. It's supposed to go at 4:59. I must have scheduled it for 5:59 by mistake. Sorry, 5 a.m. readers.

The messed up thing about long snappers in the NFL Is that McCullough is by no means assured of getting a job next year.  Teams only carry one and they’re not paid enough to be cap casualties, so they’ll just keep a guy for 10 years. If you come out of CFB and there aren’t any openings you’re just out of luck. 

I actually just found a list. A total of two rookies last year.

Intriguing list. Only two rookies, and by my count five snappers were drafted while the rest were free agent signings. Two of those five were drafted by the Packers, so Green Bay must put a premium on the position that teams rarely do. Good find

To be calm enough while visiting the moon that your heart rate doesn't spike is pretty wild. The data that NASA has for the astronauts is good stuff and that was a fun read. 

Although 6 players in the top 100 is a bunch, it almost seems too low. I am sure there is someone else that could have made the list. Why not?

It’s crazy but probably not a coincidence given all the candidates and screening they did. I’m sure they ran them through all sorts of emergency simulations and picked the guys coolest under pressure. 

HS

No doubt-those chosen guys had to be tested on everything and anything. But even so, nobody could test for them actually being on the moon, so more power to the Armstrongs and Aldrins.

Ironically enough, CBS also put out a "Top 25 under 25" list in June. Zeke was number 17. Now I know it's been a few years since I took a math class, but I count a few more than 7 players ahead of him that are over 25. No idea how you rank Zeke 24th overall but only 17th under 25.

That doesn't necessarily add another Buckeye to the list, but like you said there is definitely an argument for a few others to be on there

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

Be careful around Triv. He does the math.

Well I guess we can look forward to a change in the NCAA transfer rules...making it less arbitrary. Oh and reducing the need for an expensive atty. that not all college athletes can afford.

It doesn't help that none of the cases are public, either. I get the privacy concerns, but nobody has any idea how these decisions are actually being made (although I'm sure the NCAA wants to keep it that way).

Dude was like Perry Mason...never lost a case.

Love Joe Throw. Hopefully a few of latest recruits have some of that “Midwest” [aka OHIO] in them as well.

What's the Midwest kid that he doesn't want? I'm wondering what stereotype he is referring to here.

Me. He wouldn't have wanted me. But I was smart, anyway, and stuck with tennis.

All these recent years where we've been all caught up in QBgeddon.

There's no such thing this season, and I'm all in on Fields.

But here I am rooting nearly as much for a guy who transferred away.

Go get 'em, Joey B.

I enjoyed the NJ devil glass breaking video from @aznpimpmaster at the top of the Skully.

Ha, I was laughing at how his aznpimpmaster twitter handle did not age well, especislly since he's tweeting about his kid's birthday party.

Almost as funny as seeing moms (or grandmas!) on the playground with their kids and their lower back tattoos popping out of their mom jeans when they bend over.

Call me cynical but I suspect Mr. Mars is getting out representing college football players because his other work and clients pay more.

Ain’t nothing wrong with that. I can’t help but wonder, though, if his last big case—which was trying to get UGA TE Luke Ford eligible to play right away at Illinois so he could be near his sick grandparents only to have his appeal rejected by the NCAA—revealed the entire process to be a complete and total farce. I can see where that bewildering outcome might’ve left a bitter taste in his mouth.

That's kinda my thought as well. When he didn't win that one he realized the NCAA was just going to do whatever it wanted anyway.

buckeye1964's picture

i don't see the problem with that - who doesn't want to make "more". if i didn't chase "more", i couldn't have retired at 47.

It still amazes me how an innocent person can be railroaded into prison so easily. I don't know how you can fix the overall problem in the thinking' if the police say he's guilty then it must be so'. GO JOE GO! No more Oreo cookies..

Do you think he looked at himself in the mirror and said "this looks great, I got this" as he left to go to the airport?

I wonder if he considered a powdered wig, caked with blow.

I'm very happy Joey B found a good situation in Baton Rouge. I am definitely cheering for LSU to win the SEC again this season.

Again?

The again is to be connected to my cheering for LSU this season. I obviously didn't proofread carefully enough.

Hope Burrow has a great season and LSU sucks! Increases the odds of getting Elias Ricks.

Do we know if Ohio State's 6 players in the Top100 is the most for any college?  I didn't see anything in the article and I'm not that great at remembering where all these guys went to school.
