MEMBER SINCE   March 19, 2013

I am a die hard Buckeye and pay close attention to all things Ohio State, including recruiting. I attended Ohio State after my ETS from the Army in 2008, but unfortunately did not graduate from there due to having kidney cancer and moving closer to home with family. I have a four year old son who is my world!

Ugh, hate being reminded of that game as I was there and also flew to LA for the thrashing we took the year before.  I remember Tressel going for it on fourth and inches and instead of allowing Pryor to sneak, they handed off to the running back and got stopped for a lose. I remember walking out of The Shoe and would not speak to anybody. We should have won that game but Tressel played way to conservative, even for him.

I have read that Singleton is the top RB on their board. Not sure how true, just what I have read. Will be a fight with PSU.

I am from the 740 too (Belpre) and loved the shirt. Been searching and nothing. From what I understand Nike made this specifically for Joe, but I can't see them not releasing them to the public.

I had heard that Saban just figured out how to e-mail someone during this Coronavirus outbreak and doesn't even know how to text. I think you are spot on MichiBuck12!

I follow his IG account to and the dude comes off arrogant and acts like he has access to the coaches and players, even though truth is he gets his info from this site and Letterman Row. He paraphrases a current topic on one of the sites and puts it on IG.

None of them have really put up impressive numbers after transferring except for Potter and Lyle. It is still to early to tell on Bazley, Carton, or Gaffney. It would be easy to say that the coaches evaluated these players incorrectly, but then so did several recruiting services. So, were the coaches incorrect or were there something other than size, skill, etc. that wasn't being accounted for? Did these players want to be developed? Just odd, because of so many players that have not developed here or have transferred before getting a chance.

Not sure why people didn’t believe that was possible. The kid is like 5’11” and 185 pounds. I know there has been some good safeties that were on the smallish side ( i.e. Earl Thomas) or could grow into the position ( not sure he will get much taller). And he is athletic enough to play the position.

I am so sorry for your loss GoBuckeye! I served for 6 years with two deployments and suffer from PTSD and Depression. I struggle with it every day and know what it is like to be in that state. I have seen many good guys return and commit suicide. There is such a stigma on mental health and it is sad! No one wants to talk about it! The VA’s mental health service is severally lacking. I agree that anyone criticizing DJ should just shut up and let this kid be. There is nothing wrong with stepping away from work, school, or in his case basketball to get your mind right.

I thought I read where Wilson said he was perfectly happy being a OC and staying at OSU, but it could just be coach speak.

I think things will be fine now that Coombs is on board. Yes we are behind but can make up ground, as I doubt he picks a school anytime soon.

I have wondered the same. Tall and athletic corner, with long arms. Seems like a perfect fit in what we are looking for in a corner. But a kid who is only about 4-5 hours away and in a state that doesn't have a college who can compete for the playoffs and develop you like OSU can, it would seem like a no brainer to go after him.
