these verbal "commitments" are not binding in any way for either side. There is no benefit to him verbally agreeing to play for Oklahoma... bc Oklahoma has no obligation to uphold its verbal "scholarship offer".

Comment 28 Apr 2017

I was really hoping Conley would have still been available when the Steelers were up. They biggest need IMO is DB, after that would have to be RB depth as Bell cant stay healthy and not sure what to expect from Williams

Comment 28 Apr 2017

Not to be too negative... but Baugh is far from a 1st round talent IMO. He has above average hands, but his blocking is awful and lacks effort much like his inconsistent game. I hope he continues to mature as he has done the past couple years. But  unless he makes a big improvement in blocking and effort I see him as a mid to late draft prospect.

A bit premature here (no pun intended. If this turns out to be a scam I will laugh, but a bit early to make a joke about it IMO.

Comment 28 Apr 2017

Think you hit the nail on the head here. Browns are constantly worried about next year that they lose site of the hear and now. As you mentioned they just drafted a "solid" safety but passed up on Hooker who is being compared to Ed Reed (one of the all time greats). So Browns pass on a possible once in a lifetime talent, for a solid player.... if that doesn't scream mediocrity than I am not sure what does.

Good players typically do not pan out at the next level. Hell even great college players have a hard time succeeding in the NFL. I understand your thought that he was playing all over the field which was likely two reasons: he was better than the average talent all around him, and he wasn't good enough to master any position enough to be a game changer in that one position. Jack of all trades, master of none. I will give you he has talent and athletic ability which is interesting but not at the expense of a 1st round price.

Comment 21 Apr 2017

I understand this is a sport forum, but regardless of how sad it is to see a kid throw away his athletic potential, it is just simply sad and disturbing another women had to be assaulted before something more serious is being brought down on him.

Comment 05 Apr 2017

Not trying to pick on a kid... but for the love of God can parents please teach these kids what committed means! I am not saying he can't look around, I think he should. But they need to understand that you cannot be "committed" yet still want to look around and have uncertainty. I can only imagine what these younger generation relationships are like if their understanding of commitment is... "I have a girlfriend I am 110% committed to, but I still want to go out on dates with other girls to be sure my current girlfriend is the one". Geez I sound like an old geezer.. end of rant.  

Comment 15 Mar 2017

10000% agreed. I understand coaches hate fumbles, but he didn't even have a carry until mid way through the second quarter. so he had no rhythm, feel for the game at all. Not to mention he ran his ass off, and one of the fumbles I believe hit a knee or something like that in which no RB at any level could have held on. I might be making excuses, but Weber is not a habitual fumbler, and I gave more blame to coaches for not having a plan to let him ease into the biggest game of his young career.

Comment 15 Mar 2017

As long as the Buckeyes can bring the momentum from the B1G tournament they should perform very well. I was fortunate to catch a couple of their dual meets throughout the season and although they have talent they lost a couple duals because they didn't get those last second or close point victories. At the B1G tournament they closed matches very well, so long they continue that toughness they will finish very well if not on top.

Comment 08 Mar 2017

For me, I think there is no issue with a kid not going to a camp to earn an offer. If he is comfortable with his potential opportunities that have made effort to win him over why try to convince someone they need you, unless you are coveting that specific offer. It doesn't make a kid any less driven or mean they are unwilling to work, its a two way street and for some kids they need more commitment from a school then "come and earn your offer", when they have other schools that see their value from an on field production stand point.

Comment 08 Mar 2017

Not sure if this is a random general statement or directed at Asamoah, but I don't recall him saying he would not camp at OSU. Per both articles his top schools include the programs that he has had the closest communication with, and nothing about refusing to camp or try to earn offers.

Comment 08 Mar 2017

Kid is super athletic and will only get better this year. I just asked a buddy of mine about him recently, who is very close to Asamoah. He said he would love an OSU offer but for him its all about relationship. Although Fickell at UC was presumed to be the favorite, I was told he is most likely leaning towards Penn St right now, and once he commits there is very little chance he will change his mind.

Comment 01 Feb 2017

why is everyone so fixated on getting a "big name" DT. DT has not been a lacking position for OSU for a very long time as far as production on field. We may not have show stoppers, but they have performed very adequately and even well for several years. Someone please tell me the last time we lost in the trenches due to lack of talent at DT?!

Comment 17 Jan 2017

You are forgetting T. Sprinkle being back from injury which should be huge. I think our DL will be good enough to compensate for a lack of experience at MLB. As for Hubbard, he is a DE, he would not do well at MLB... too tall and not fast enough IMO. Not saying he is slow overall, just not the speed or agility needed at the MLB position. Hubbard is going to ball out at DE this year.
