On a positive note, this really free’d up some much needed space in the backfield. We have some younger, smarter and better players that deserve those spots
Agree, after his freshman season I thought he’d look like JK now. Dude has/had so much potential. I use past tense bc I don’t know whether it’s left him or not?
Teague and McCall should carry the main load.
Riep has a daughter. Ruined their careers for a lack of self-control. What a shame.
They’ll end up better than last year’s D-line. Put money on it
Only if he would’ve stayed the course. Kid was dynamic in high school. Best of luck to him. Live and learn
Dude, I literally thought about this and you made it in like 5 mins. Touché for the hard work. This will be good news all around
Damn straight he does, now onto how big of a dynamic change this is for our recruits :)
So, Kerry Coombs, anyone!?
This shouldn’t be much of an issue. We have arguably the best lineage in this position than any other school and with guys like Fleming, a certain allure to tOSU has been created. Only time will tell. I trust our coaches but yes, compared to other positions, there has been somewhat of a drop-off.
Brian Snead... what could’ve been...
Najee is back. WTF is going on?
Why we can’t land a blue chip RB is beyond me?? So much history and JK paving the way.
Mitchell and Browning NEED to play next season
Bold prediction but I say Mookie ends up playing RB
Oh, we’re still talking about this, I see...
All comes down to post-season experience in my humble opinion. We are elite, but our mistakes vs. Clemson proved our inexperience and youth. Prime example of raw talent/immaturity vs experience. They’ve learned from their mistakes and will be back in the hunt next year.
They’re unpredictable when backed against the wall. Past few years have been a disappointment. Time will tell.
If you would’ve asked me 3 years ago that Baron Browning and Dylan Moses aren’t 1st round locks in this draft, I’d call you crazy.
All Gill needs is a solid 10-15 lbs. within the next 1-2 years and he’d go within the first 3 rounds. Kid is just as fast twitch as JK but taller. If I was Marriotti, I’d make him into a thoroughbred.
Although I place my confidence in our coaches, it’s hard not to wonder how good Snead would’ve been if he wasn’t kicked off of our team. I think we would’ve seen somebody with more production and ready to take over for JK than Teague. The Clemson game may have been a bit different, as well. Snead was Carlos Hyde 2.0; a grown man amongst freshman boys.
Detroit kid. Don’t really blame him. bought into a system that didn’t work out. He’ll end up like Mike Thomas 3-5 years from now. Im sure he would’ve made the difference for us vs Clemson if he was a Buckeye.
So cool that I’ll gladly eat my crow. Please and thank you
I’ll gladly eat my crow. Him and Browning will be top 10 picks.
Lol he’s gone. The fact that this thread has over 150 comments is beyond me.
