SeyekcuB... and all of us.

i've been listening and watching recruiting commentaries and comments and vid clips for some decades now... and not learning a whole lot while piling up my reps to the ceiling.  Somehow your post crystallized something basic about us that i am as surely complicit not only in doing, but feeling.  So, this is for all of us...to consider, and i don't know any more about it than the next guy.

As a Buckeye supporting UM's prime values... and regardless of your intentions... you might FIRST want to consider what others could perceive you are saying about a recruit's [or anyone else's, for that matter] mother.

Like...I surely would be mightily offended if some troll suggested you meant a recruit's mom sold her son to urban for a house.

So, shouldn't we walk a step in their shoes, using UM's prime values, BEFORE posting... and this ought to be a rule for ALL of us?

For you have the 24/7/365 'viral' attention of the entire world of Die-versity, which can totally feel/say/think/do anything they want with your words.  The values of me absolvo, and te accuso... are murderous and evil.

And don't we see instances of powerful people getting fired for a single 'wrong' word...or unproven act, 10,20,30,40 years ago?  So... 'it happens'... and evidently there is no more 'due process'.

It’s fine, if battle does flip then it’s a couple short weeks until we humiliate the wolverines and pick up a pledge from daxton.

That might be wishful thinking the way it looks but I hope so too

Can you spell CFP without Bama? It's pretty nice to be able to tell recruits you're all but guaranteed a 1 in 4 shot at a National Title.

It’s true. That’s not changing anytime soon.

Battle is gone, you listen to his dad's comments you can kind of tell they are unsure about Meyer's future here. That with the fact his visit was canceled. 

HS
brutus0717's picture

I have to agree. His dad keeps saying that they need to have a face to face meeting with Meyer about Meyer's future, but then they keep cancelling trips due to "timing". Just doesn't seem like he's gonna stick with his commitment.

Brutus0717 your posts seem reasonable.  Perhaps you can explain why we "assume the negative" ['he gone'' et al ] and the obvious consequences thereto.

I think right now this board is littered with negative thinking. I'm not sure if I dislike that more than blind optimism, but it is what it is.

Jacobs' visit is a VERY good sign. I'm pretty sure Iowa has a no-visit policy for their verbals.

Alabama has a more secure coaching staff especially the head coach, while Ohio State's situation is the opposite as several coaches are on their way out and we have no idea if Meyer is returning

I'd like to see your research on that. Especially in this Internet age where people are making up more stories and they're spreading farther and wider than ever.

I’ve been in urban’s corner from the start but this is getting old.  Why not sign him to an extension to put this fire out?  Something smells here

In Antoine Winfield I trust

I thought he just signed a deal a year ago and has 3 more years left? anyone

He did. HSG needs to get facts straight

I can't imagine why a highly touted safety would think twice about coming here when just this past week a safety buried on the depth chart came out and played lights out and still may not get to start. If I was a good defensive recruit I sure as hell would be waiting till after the season to see how much of our defensive staff was left.

HS
HSGABuck's picture

Not to mention every time our HC is asked about these sorts of things he says ask the DC or OC.  I NEVER recall him answering questions like that in the past.

What the hell, Urban?

If Battle were to flip, I would LOVE for him to call out the coaches by name and say he wasn't comfortable playing for Schiano, Grinch, and Davis.

HS

Davis is the only true bad coach on this staff.

What if he flips and states the reason was because the steady moaning, complaining, and sky is falling comments on 11W.

I assume recruits read the blogs, especially when their name is mentioned.  We've got it better than most.  Our team is for a team is 8-1 and has a HC who has 3 national championships to his name.  Top recruits, come on down, up, or over.  Columbus is ready for you!

Go Buckeyes!!!

HS

I would hope recruits would be smarter than to read boards like these and allow them to influence their decisions. If they did they probably wouldn't sign on to play for anyone.

If you have been following the battle situation Eph,  it is NOT about position coaches so  you’ll be disappointed in not being able to hear that.

That would be so AWESOME, right? Maybe he could also tweet out that ANYONE thinking about playing for OSU is nuts. SCORE!

Hopefully he will not flip but it wouldn't be end of BuCks FB. We need more help back there? J.Haselwood(sp?) was one last year that I hated to see flip to FSU!!

Go BuCks

Other than Clemson and Alabama all fans are bitching so they can't get everyone they need to be a bit thick skinned and part of growing up in life.

Even we aren't completely sure if our coach will be back. How can a recruit who wants to play for Urban make a decision without knowing. I know I haven't heard that he is absolutely positive he is hear next year. We have so many on air people saying he is gone what is a recruit to believe. I think Finebaum is the best recruiter for bama because nothing but negativity towards all other programs,and if kids listen it hurts us.

HS

Urban has said he will be back. not sure what more you are waiting to hear.

The media outside of FOX has tried for years to beat down the Buckeyes.  ESPN has their own negative recruiting toward the Buckeyes.  Herbie is included in that.  He wants to be unbias Im fine with that but, some of the questionable comments and his lovefest towards the SEC is disheartening.  i do not even think he realizes what he does or even if he cares. If kids let the media influence them so be it!  Urban will be back next year and  I look for him to be around for two more championships.  He wants 5 and he can get them.  I am in good spirits to see more love towards the home state recruiting.  I believe thats what we need.  We need more kids like Potter.  His brother transfers and he is still commiteed 100 percent. That is a kid who has the heart of a Buckeye.  Those kids are the kids who wants the NFL but, also wants championships fro the home state.  I am not saying he is going to be some great NFL prospect he isnt in college yet. So, who knows? Im just saying he has the Buckeye heart. We need more kids like him. Go Bucks!
