Boom

The ugly truth is often downvoted

For the life of me, I can't imagine why any of these recruits would want to commit to such a garbage team! Haven't they been watching the same games as "the sky is falling" crowd?

HS

Seems that the majority of the complaints falls more into the category of "the same fcking mistakes keep getting made every single damn week, WHY?!!!!"  That's not the same as what you've suggested.  Very, very, very, very few people ever thought about, much less complained, that this is a "garbage team".

58Buckeye - beautifully and gracefully said!   "For the life of me, I can't imagine".

Life... a long time breathing and abundant patience and forgiveness...

of Me... of and about ME... without reason, context, any selflessness whatsoever....  Some 'vision', eh - i know it well.

Brilliant solution BGO - ask them 'why'... AND...

"actually" "listen"... totally, honestly, actually, really!

['58 - recognizing your sarcasm... Brilliant solution... 'for a friend'.]

I suspicion it will 'make your head hurt'.  But i'm so selfishly glad i won't

'be to blame'!      LOL

BiggHoww -

IMO your saying is a wise and self-evident reflection on our human nature.

For Truth is Truth from beginning to end, from top to bottom, unto all people and things.   

So who 'makes it'  "ugly"... "often"?  Who doesn't?  ;-{)}

Who can DV...or DV... depending solely on their own 'choice' of their intent and definition of truth?

And so each of us convicts our selves of our own motives... out of our own mouths... while using others & things as... 'covers'.

What FREEDOM we are all given.  I must 'organize' myself to apportion The Blame to my Community...?

Ouch.  LOL

I'd be terrified to see the conversations that go on in your head.

Bucks_4_life ...

your sentence reflects an understanding far beyond our willingness... as indicated in a certain verse and the exact term "terrifying".

Stark and sobering testimony that each of us 'already know'...which is why it's 'so terrifying' to recognize... 4_life.

I don't know why but this is my favorite Boom gif. I think it's the incongruity of an innocent looking teenage girl magically summoning the violence of a nuclear explosion.

There were a lot of good ones back in the day. Some are no longer allowable.

HS
Lighteyes's picture

Serious question: Why are they not allowable? Is there an 11W policy I am not aware of (but should)?

HS

I believe that it is a matter of the size of the gif so as not to overload the servers.

Gif size is a mild limitation; you can always compress.  It's more that some are "edgy" according to 11W's bill payer and others have just been forgotten.

I did NOT see that coming! Are we hearing up again a little? maybe the fire can spread onto the field! Boom!

I realize this is probably stupid... but is it possible that we're getting out of the funk here? Recruiting momentum isnt a total coincidence i don't think... kinda goes hand in hand.

HS

I feel that way too. The Buckeye Machine doesn’t stop for long and its acceleration is hellacious when it starts to click again!

FINALLY some good news after a lull in the cycle. Hartline is doing WORK!

"Tales of Texas’ return have been greatly exaggerated"

HS
Kieren1's picture

If Hartline really likes him, then I really like it. Hartline is the best WR coach we could possibly get. He made it in the NFL on technique and these young talented WRs are wanting to learn from a real pro knowing they'll need strong technique in addition to physical skill to make it in the NFL. Way to go Coach! Great job!

Where are the people who questioned whether Hartline could replace Zach Smith on the recruiting trail?

Bucks19's picture

If anybody was questioning that, it was about 1% of this board.  Not sure where this comment came from   

HS
Buck68's picture

agree Buck19... "about 1%" questioned.

99% to go to become 'students of the game' instead of selfish, egotistical, self-anointed experts...by their feelings.

Agree:  "sure" this feeling came from... just about all of us some of the time.  We have 'so much'... 'upside'!  And despite our many faults... a few keep on seeking, keep on learning, keep on considering!  We have 'so much more' than 'so much' to be thankful for.

Welcome... BUCKEYES!  Thank you for leading in the storm, the hurricanes [ ;-{)} ] of Diversity....

And thank you to each of you 'unknown' leaders... for every cup of water, every breath of fresh air, every graceful forgiveness.

HS
gobucks1966's picture

That was me and I want him to do great here but still in my eyes this is his first true get. Williams was pretty much a shoe in before Hartline got the job. I know it may look like I'm not on his side but I call a spade a spade.

BOOM!  After such a long dry stretch on the recruiting trail, it's great to add another young Buckeye to the mix this weekend.  Welcome JSN!  Go Bucks!

Buckeyedoc99200's picture

As an aside, is Hartline a WR coach with a contract or is he still a WR coach with “interim” in front of it? If its the former, he deserves it. If its the latter we need to make it the former.

He was also in the Shoe for an unofficial visit this past weekend. Upon his offer, Smith-Njigba told Eleven Warriors, "I was very excited because I’ve been waiting on this one." 

"Year for what?"

Two commits in one day, and Michael Thomas seals the deal against LA! Can this day get any better?!?

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

HS

Watch the kid run, he runs just like Micheal Thomas. Their stride and form look identical to me.

Video editor literally takes out every meaningful portion lol.

Those who say they can and those who say they can't are both right. Which one are you?

Hard to tell what kind of a receiver he is, with that garbage attempt at a highlight reel video .... Hope the family didn't have to pay a cent for it  ...  You think the producer of the video was trying to one-up Steven Spielberg ??

At any rate, well done Coach Hartline - keep 'em coming !!

HS
acBuckeye's picture

I live in Rockwall and have gotten to see him play a few times this year. He's lightning fast, always open, and catches everything. Rockwall's SR QB is a Minnesota commit FWIW.

HS
Silver Sniper's picture

Thanks AC, can’t wait to see him repping the S&G!! BOOM!!!!!

HS
BuckeyeinFlorida's picture

Lightning fast ? Link shows verified 40' dash time of 4.64. Maybe that was a typo and he really runs a 4.44. That would be incredible.

HS
acBuckeye's picture

Hes always the fastest player on the field, and playing big school Texas football, that's saying something.

Welcome aboard young man. I wanted to watch his video but I had stop it very early on.  Whoever made the video for him did him no favors.  Regardless, GO BUCKS!

A highlight video is supposed to highlight the player, not the video editor who demonstrated his mastery of every. single. effect. on. every. single. clip. Star Wars called. They want their cheesy transitions back.

Regardless, BOOM!

Nice recruiting win 

Alcohol will not solve any of your problems, but then again, neither will milk or water.

HS
ARMYBUCK's picture

Right?  I just wanted to see him in game speed making plays at game speed so I could decipher just how good he is.  I couldn't do that cause the video was all cut up, stop and go, smoke and mirrors and explosions maybe?

Kid looks physical.... will fit in perfect with our wide receivers. BOOM! Welcome to the Buckeyes! 

HS
ELJTSA76's picture

Another, there is...? Hmmm

HS
gobucks1966's picture

The only down side I see is a low ranking for this early in next years class. Which makes me think they are in great shape with the others at the top of the board for 2020.

Denny

HS
BuckeyeinFlorida's picture

4.64 40' dash time ? Wow, Hope the offensive and defensive tackles don't tease him too much about being slower.
Best of luck young man. Development and strength training will make you even better.

HS
gobucks1966's picture

4.4 and 4.3 speed for a wide out is great but only in a straight line and that's called track speed. Getting open and catching a ball and blocking is more important. Not only that there are a lot of kids listed as 4.4 guys who really are not. I bet Hartline wasn't a 4.5 guy or Saunders either and maybe Victor?

Denny

HS
cincyspikes23's picture

I love that we can get these talented players but I absolutely hate that our best talent leaves the state. It's angering me more and more that we could possibly miss on Zach Harrison (to TTUN of all schools!) after the Jackson Carman debacle last yr. Anyone else feel like this is something we have to get fixed moving forward? I don't like just simply saying "well if he doesn't wanna be a Buckeye then screw him" bc our top talent HAS to stay in Ohio. FWIW, Wiltfong just submitted a CB for Harrison to TTUN and it's reminiscent of when they would come down to Ohio, take our top talent, and beat us with it. I absolutely hate this feeling and can't seem to find a silver lining!

It...is...tiiiiiime!!!!

HS
gobucks1966's picture

Through the years Ohio's best have gone to other schools for different reasons. Some I know why like Clarrett chased 3 top Ohio kids away for what he did in High School. They went to Michigan Manningham and Burgess high school team mates and Crable of Massillon.

Denny

HS

Wilfong CB percentage is not all that great and he is better with the smoothie's or what ever there called along with the weather reports.

I don't get this. Dude is #59th best receiver in 2020, and for some reason this is big deal? I don't get it.

Because I could not go for three - Woody

Well, 59th...

And he has 2019 season to grow. Looks like he has a good grasp of things, and a lot of time to improve before he gets to Columbus.

Are you new to recruiting?

kids who commit to osu get celebrated on this site as well they should. It doesn't matter what their ranking is.

it matters that they chose to attend our favorite school.

HS
Crimson's picture

Because it's an early ranking and he'll move on up?  You act like it's his rating when it's January of 2020.  Also, coaching evaluations matter more than rankings.
