is it pronounced o-shag-hennessey
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.
It's Gaelic (Irish) . . .
Like O'Hehir (anglo spelling: O'Hare).
Our honor defend, so we'll fight to the end !
The most important play in football........
+1 for you sir!
My man!!!! Long live the senator!!
Gotta love that Circuit City was the trophy sponsor back then lol
I will pound and pound you until you quit

Congratulations, Michael O.
I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...
Five star punter? Tressel is smiling like the cat that ate the canary. Welcome, Mr. O'Shaughnessy
It's hard to see a punter as five star. Five toes, maybe.
There must be a different rating system for kickers than the rest of the players. Not sure how the 18th best punter in the nation is also a five star. None the less, welcome to the family!
I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!
You didn’t know the top 18 players in the class are all punters? It’s like on Oprah, “You get punter, you get a punter, YOU ALL GET A PUNTER!”
"He has that look in his eye when it's time to start feeding the beast" UFM on EZE
A 5 star punter... who's the "the 18th-best punter in the class, according to chrissailerkicking.comclass." Erratum, I think it's called.
When I die, sprinkle my ashes over the 70's
Looks like any division 1 prospect is a 5 star according to the key at the top.
Let's Go BUCKEYES!!!!!
I got caught with that as well. A five star punter then on top of that 18th best.
Earle’s target practice
How’d you find a picture of a game that never happened?
"allegedly" never happened
Thanks to Bourbon Street, I was there but all memory of it is wiped from my brain.
Nice to hear a new commitment. Seems like forever. Punting future is bright
Stay golden, Ponyboy.

Boom! Punters are important!
Shandy is not beer
They hate us cuz they aint us!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I like how she does it.
BOOM! Welcome, Michael!
Tressel honored the punt, but Urban puts great care into it as well. Johnston, then Chrisman and now O'Shaughnessy is on deck.

5 star with one offer from Toledo. Could there be a more dramatic illustration of how much most college programs don't value kicking specialists. Glad OSU doesn't suffer from that short sightedness. It has served the Buckeyes well over the years to have a typically superior kicking game.
The offseason is the longest season.
the five-star O'Shaughnessy is considered the 18th-best punter in the class,
Huh? 5 star but 18th best in the class? Do they just make it rain 5 stars for punters or something?
Ask MSU what a great punter can do.
Feed the trolls
He is rated a 5 star by the Kicking and Punting service.
Drue Chrisman is the highest ranked punter ever by 247 composite as a .8529 3 Star, #767 overall in the country for the class of 2016
Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
This is huge. You don't know how important these guys are until you don't have one. (Or have one who sucks)
I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.
I Believe In Ohio State.
Kid's already got his name on the stadium in the end zone. I assume it's the same family. That's the $5 million plus donations.
The 18th best Punter is 5 stars?
I was wondering the same thing
Must really be a punter heavy class. LOL
"The most important statistic, is the number of wins in a season".........Woody Hayes
After watching Drue almost singlehandedly beat MSU, I’m a fair bit more excited about this than I would normally be!
Yep. True showed what a good punter can do. Bama's punter nearly beat us in the BCS playoff game when we were out playing them. And Cam certainly took care of business while here.
Punter you say?

OK, you get a +1. Nice hang time on that comment!
Give em the BOOOOOOOOOOOOT! BOOM!
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
Tressel's personal video library is stocked full of senior year punter highlight tapes.
I want a fall Saturday in Ohio Stadium..
POP, I mean, it's a punter after all lol, JK, welcome aboard young man
He's wiry ...
You don't know what you have until it's gone .... for example, toilet paper.
I got you
Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever. -Falco
Welcome aboard Michael!
16-2 is SWEET!
I think there is title inflation when the 18th best punter is accorded five stars. Kind of like Major League Soccer. The common definition of five star is projection to the first round of the NFL draft.
Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
He's going to kick SOME BALLS!!!!!
6’-4” 200 lb punter? Might want to back him up at WR!
5 star punter? i call BOOM!! nice catch ahead of the other schools.
Most recruiting services rate elite kickers all in one bunch and will be rated a 3 star more than likely. In all my 55+ years of following recruiting I have never seen one higher than that. My guess in the world of kickers he is a 5 star. With the rave of recruiting these days and the interest this is a new one and finally kickers are getting their do. I doubt he will be more than a 3 when entered in our ranking though ? If my memory is correct Nugent was a walk on and not sure what his star was ? If anyone recalls Rich Spangler he was a 3 star kicker back in the day but was recruited not a walk on.
Chrisman says, "You're Welcome!"
Five stars, yeah, yeah, but can he flip water bottles?
I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.
Water bottles, fields, heck our punters can flip everything.
Welcome, Michael O'Shaughnessy!
I was going to comment that he was going to bring our star average down, but I guess not.
If he had signed with TTUN, he would have possibly been their highest-rated player.
A thing repeated will happen a third time.
I don't think he is a 5 star in the rankings of all the players? Only as a kicker am I wrong here gang? I have never seen a kicker in a top 250 ever and I will bet a 3 star tops.
that a boy ! urbans in the office.
No kickers or punters in the top 300

I'm not sure why, but I find this to be hilarious.
To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.
That's a win... 'cause that's the main reason I put it up. I was looking for a dog kicking a football (BadDog - get it!) and I saw this and couldn't stop laughing.
Woody must of dated my x wife and then come up with that saying. ha ha
I was told we wouldn't be punting in 2020.

I would like to see Urban go after a placekicker here in Oklahoma! Name is Noah Rauschenberg
. Kid is automatic for Union in Tulsa (6A State champs almost every year). I've seen him kick under pressure from 59 yards out and would have been good from 65.
You never get a second chance to make the first impression
Who Needs Zach Harrison and Wehn we just got a five star punter!!!! Dance Electric!!!
I have always thought about for kids who have this option placed before them because if Michael plays his cards right (greyshirt, then redshirt, then 4 years starting after Dru leaves) could be most of the way to completion of a PhD before he is all done.
Welcome to BuckeyeNation Michael!!!!
Rendezvous With Destiny
Ain't no such thing as a 5-star kicker of any type...still, welcome aboard.
I just checked. The only higher 5 stars that came to Ohio State were Johnny Utah and Shane Falco.
Michael was in my sons baseball team for a bit. A REALLY nice family and his dad is a philanthropist of sorts in New Albany raising money for After School All Stars.
Its crazy seeing the kids my kids grew up with developing into star athletes. I look forward to the O Shaghennesy memes.
The down vote is a mighty tool. Use it on idiots, not differing opinions.
Maybe he can kick a few other guys our way.
Welcome, Michael! Your first assignment is to watch the 2018 MSU game.
I survived Cooper, and I hate Tai Streets.
