Well deserved. After hearing what Urban's been saying about Samuel (and what his old high school coach said about him in a few interviews last year), I'm expecting huge things. I know Zeke is going to be very good, but I honestly think that Curtis Samuel is going to be the next great Buckeye. Reggie Bush levels of playmaking ability.
When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.
I like this comparison better.
Reggie Bush Robert Smith levels of play making ability.
I understand the homerism, but I'd much rather have a Reggie Bush level playmaker than Robert Smith. Bush was one if the most electric players I've ever seen. Smith was a good, could have been great under better circumstances, player.
Two great kids. Future looks bright.
If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
This doesn't surprise me at all. Especially Raekwon. That picture of him going to camp would put fear in the hearts of most running backs. Dude is a beast!!
Good job guys!
Well done guys!
Dammit, I wan't to meet a girl that looks just like J-Law and date her! Dammit, I would pretend its really her!
One day I will valiantly become a political prisoner of 11W jail.
Congrats to the Chef!
High and tight boo boo
I believe 9Route is the winner of the Black Stripe game with his guess of Samuel, Dixon, Webb, McMillan, Samuel, Samuel, McMillan, Cybil, Batman Symbol.
That's 50% of the freshman class, not fair.
I thought it was going to be Cybil too. Darn, maybe next year

But what about the White Stripes?
Seems like a lot of people want them gone, too, hahaha

I'm sure my high school German teacher would like me to point out that in German, Boot means Boat, but then I would be a partypooper and that ain't my style. I can get behind this as well.
I will now definitely be yelling "das boot!" every time he comes in. I'm sure my girlfriend will love that.
Thanks guys you just got me fired up. It's no "El Guapo" but it's fitting.

I'm followed by him all day and night. It's best not to feed him.
Perfect! Das Boot!
Awesome news. Great to hear. Real excited for these two, and the rest of the class, of course.
You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

I voted for Sean Neurnberger, happily disappointed to read that a running back and linebacker have stepped up first instead.
It's going to be a great season.
Hindsight is, and in, 2020

Great to see two guys get their black stripes removed this quickly. Also great to see some of the highly publicized recruits get theirs off so soon. They must have given Meyer the psychological motivator no choice but to not remove the black stripe from a virtually unknown walk on. Well done fellas. Now you're officially Buckeyes.
Great to see 2 5 stars be first
stark county football
Dixon or Neurnberger gotta be next right?
All the signs are pointing to a good year of football.

Very happy for both of them. Upvoted all who picked them. Peace.
That was quick! I expect that this freshman class will lose black stripes at the fastest rate yet.
Left spaz or right spaz?
I'm leaning left.
Right, all the way. Shelf looks to be a little bare on left.
They're easier to train that way.
"If you're not changing, you're falling behind."
I never lean left...in fact, I make 3 right turns when left is the direction needed to go...
But in the case of the spaz's...hmmm
"The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender." Woody Hayes
Johnnie Dixon seems like the next likely candidate. Ill go with him, but wouldn't be surprised if Urban did a little mind trick and chose a walk-on.
18...I'm following you on this; there seems to be a trend here (early enrollees), and who gets the press. Plus, my initial pick (Dylan) is on crutches in the photo.
I don't know what the requirements are to lose the helmet stripe, but something tells me that they weren't gonna be released if they didn't meet the requirement to lose the stripe.
*edit ...Forgot to say good deal on losing the stripes. So distracted these days by all the amazing articles on this site, thanks guys!
And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
Technically, Urban removed Samuel's black stripe, whereas Raekwon's black stripe ran off in the middle of the night.
Please = Bush nearly put the USC football program away for good. Robert is classy dude as well as playmaker
Maybe you are too young, but Smith 's OSU career wasn't exactly smooth sailing LOL.
I wouldn't say that Bush was at fault there as much as USC was. But I obviously wasn't talking about off-the-field. Curtis, by all accounts, is a class act.
Looks like Slade is #3
Congrats to Darius Slade on losing his black stripe at practice this morning!

Raekwon reminds me of Jonathan Vilma, his focus, tenacity, and work ethic will make him into a great leader. Oh and he hits like a truck, Samuel's ability is scary. Dontre and Samuel will shake and bake our way into the National Championship where we will destroy the evil Tide forces with a vengeance and fury that will shake the globe.
