As far as I’m concerned, getting Friday is two wins. One for getting him, one for steering him from Michign. 

Go Bucks

Right on Gilda Radnor, but it was Emily Littella that had the catchphrase "nevermind".  However, it's a minor error as both were a treasure trove of humor. Roseanne's was "It's always something", which was the title of her autobiography about her cancer. Upvote to you for the memory.

Gilda Radnor and Gene Wilder - what a couple. 

Gilda's Weekend Update bits on SNL are classic - especially her interactions with Jane Curtain. “CHECK FOR YOURSELF, ROSEANNE!” Those years were arguably SNL's best.

Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle and mutilate.

Mgoblow is close melting down , lol. CB’s went from 60-40% um to 90-10 today. Strangely enough at least half are being realistic and not totally shocked because of their 5 loss season the other half are sticking with the tattoos and bagmen comments.

MICHIGAN STILL SUCKS

The other half make shit up to make themselves feel better because that's what losers do, make excuses for their failures.

I get such pleasure going to Mgoblog and reading all of the complaining and fighting amongst themselves.  Right now, I'm reading a riveting debate about why stars don't matter, based on all the stud 3* recruits they have had recently, a few of which I've never heard of.  I think that's a stellar plan for ichigan, keep recruiting 3* guys, and rely on that superior coaching and development they believe they have.

Who was that other guy we had playing at TE ? Barry ? He looked like a beast when he got the ball.

HS
swainpm's picture

I think he is the next great Buckeye TE. Ruckert will rotate in but its Berry's time in 2018.

HS
theopulas's picture

You may very well be right. But I think Ruck can be special if he adds 20 pounds of muscle. The entire world is looking for the next Gronk, and they all look at this kid and wonder. He is the best TE prospect in a few years.

HS
JWBUCKEYES3's picture

I would agree Ruckert has reminded me of Gronk at some points. If you watch his film, you can see moments where he high points the ball like Rob, has great hands, and will surely put on weight and muscle once he gets to Coach Mick... Should be a great one 

Go Bucks

HS
stxbuck's picture

Berry looked great blocking this year, and showed good hands in the passing game, he should fit in nicely as the starter next year, and continue to grow as a player.

HS

Why be a good Friday at TTUN? When you could be a great Friday at OSU. Who doesn't like Friday's?
Would be a big one to get now.

Thanks for the news on Friday. I was a tad concerned that he's undersized for DT, so the DE info cleared that up for me.

If you're not working to be the best, you're not going to do the best you can 

I left out the last part of the quote from Ruckert ("on the field") on purpose, because this is a simple statement that applies anywhere and anytime in life. From the young man's quotes, he seems to be mature and focused for sure. 

In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...

Ruckert from New York....Friday from New Jersey.  Maybe bringing Rutgers into the Big Ten was a good idea.

Guess Harbaugh ran out of job openings. /s

HS

No /s needed.

The NCAA took that away, plus he has let some of those hires go after they were deemed no longer productive, word gets out.

I wouldn't worry about Harbaugh running out of job openings....I think he is about to create a new opening in the HC room after next season.

buckslan's picture

I hope the Buckeyes use Ruckert much like Oklahoma used Mark Andrews, a little less off the line and a little more in the slot. Also I completely forgot about all the attrition we are having at TE, with Ruckert coming in June we are only going to have 3 TE's with Luke Farrell, Jake Hausmann, and Jeremy Ruckert, with potential for a 4th in Alex Williams. Both Luke and Jake were 4* prospects in the 2016 class, this is their year to step up!

HS
RBurgundy4's picture

Berry was the #2 TE all season and he's back, unless he's moves back to DE, from whence he came. Yes, JH and LF need to make a move either way, tho.

True dat.  Berry is a physical specimen.

HS
kareemabduljacobb's picture

Outside of one of the many special team blunders during this game (as well as season), this was a beastly Stiff Arm from Berry.

EDIT: Nevermind looks like this video can't be played outside of youtube.  But it happened on that botched XP attempt when Chrisman just tossed the ball backwards underhanded when getting tackled and Berry scooped it up.  at the 25:45 mark when watching the actual full game vid. 

HS

How about as a fullback in certain situations?  Berry would be a load.  (Hopefully, we would do it better than TTUN. LMAO)

Would love to see OSU use Berry like Okie uses Flowers. Lined up as FB but can catch it out of the backfield or level defenders in the run game.

I should have scrolled down more!  I like your thinking.

Can't say this enough. Buckeye Football is a BILLION dollar business. Open up the checkbook and OVERPAY guys like LJ and Schiano so we can keep this thing rolling.

This is a comment on the Jim Tressel running for Senate story, which I'm sure we're not supposed to comment on, but he's one of those guys I'd vote for.  I don't care what party he is or his lack of political experience or what he knew or didn't know about tattoos.  He's a good man.

Damn just saw Tyson Campbell is trending to Georgia, if he signs with them, no way we get back to #1 in the recruiting rankings. He would be Georgia's 7th 5-star!! Which is insane!

Really like Jake Smith's highlights. Didn't get a chance to see Notre Dame Prep play this season, so surprised at his skills. Stats were amazing.

Here's a video of Smith. Doesn't seem to have elite speed, but good quickness, hands, and is a former(may still be not sure how old the video is) running back so maybe a more possession type H/slot guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vI1Ene1GcQo

Ruckert needs 12-15 targets EVERY game!  Hoping he becomes Haskins/Burrows security blanket.  4th an 2 all day quick toss to the slot!
