Very head scratching what is taking OSU so long here. I get there are players probably higher on the list and he may commit fairly quickly, but he is a talented player. At least from what I have heard.

And given that offering him would help the cause with some other players, seems it should have been done by now.

Barrett still had a solid year, but given the style of play Meyer liked and Barrett's skill set. There were going to be some issues. Barrett is not as bad a passer as some want to make him out to be. He was just very inconsistent. Sometimes he could throw a 20 yard pass between defenders on a rope (like in the PSU come back) and in others he would throw behind or underthrow guys.

A mix of things.

I would buy that if their friend was a so-so to below average player. By most accounts Thomas looks to be a solid player in an area of need. Maybe not the tip top tier but solid.

Comment 20 Mar 2019

I doubt it is good, although given the time left it is hard to figure that anything will stick for good or not. He did make a comment about narrowing things down to the SEC. Which would leave OSU out. Surprising given the good relationship to this point. 

I would be shocked if he went to Tenn though. Georgia is at least competitive. I do not remember the last time Tenn was even sort of relevant. 

Still a ways to go with him, but it would sting for OSU.

None through Endgame, after that who knows. They are better off without the X-men in my mind. They always had their own little part of the universe it seemed in the comics too. Made things odd at times. 

Getting the rights back to the extended FF rogues and such is big though. 

Comment 18 Mar 2019

Not that I know much, but surprised OSU did not offer him sooner. Seems like they potentially would be playing catch up in some respects now. One thinks they would have the edge being the in state school for the three, but the slow walk of this one has been confusing. 

Not that I have thought as much about them having to play together in college. But what do I know? I hope an offer is coming soon for him.

Comment 16 Mar 2019

The uncertainty is the big thing. PSU has it too, MSU needs to prove they can score and Maryland needs to do quite a bit. Just because they pushed OSU further does not mean they are suddenly elite. 

Multiple posters here give them too much credit. When they can consistently make bowl games or knock off a few good teams consistently I think they deserve to be taken seriously. Not before. 

Comment 16 Mar 2019

Except they have said that they could also all go their separate ways too. Offering him would be good, but if they do and they all do not commit I imagine the gripe will be the slow walking killed all momentum and they are doomed. 

What will be will be. 

Comment 14 Mar 2019

I think he just puts things as he sees it leaning at the moment. Does not mean it will not be a fight. It is still really strange to me that Georgia can get all these guys. They are a good program, but they have not won much of anything. They lost to Texas, have not won the SEC and their claim to fame is winning a playoff game and losing the title. 

Just strange to me. They are the legit contenders to Alabama in the SEC but are not able to consistently do the job. 

Comment 07 Mar 2019

No idea really. Was not sure if he was referring to type of player, regions or both there. The defensive scheme does sound different, so maybe looking more at hybrid LB/DB types. I imagine they still go after LBs and other talented guys though. 

Comment 05 Mar 2019

Given how many review shows there are, it would be nice to see some of half time with the bands. Get through some highlights for the big games but then save the rest for later recap shows. I feel at the end of the day, pending how many games you are watching, you have seen the highlights of a team crushing another team with a long pass or a long run about a dozen times anyway.

Comment 04 Mar 2019

I imagine so, but who knows? It is a system that is more symbolic than anything. It is not like a player will not play if there is need, but it is something to give the new guy a boost and to show that he is meeting the expectations the coaches have for a player on the team.

New unknown guy has to prove themselves. It will be interesting to see if the standards change or anything. Seemed like some guys would have them off in a few weeks and others would be during the season. It should vary some but that was always surprising to me.

Comment 04 Mar 2019

Seems a pretty safe statement to make really. Murray can probably be a decent NFL QB, but he is not a top ten or even twenty pure QB. He is a freak athlete.

Comment 04 Mar 2019

Just in the recent past, Zeke seemed pretty set that he was going to be a good NFL player. Pace is an easy one too going further back. There are others. Thomas was a surprise, I thought he would be good but not as good as he has been. Joey Bosa has also played well if he can get rid of the injury bug.

Nick will be a monster too. I would have loved to see what numbers he would have had if he would have stayed healthy through the season. Would have been a game changer along the line for sure. Probably worth a few extra TDs on his own from the defensive side.

Comment 04 Mar 2019

If he wants to try and go pro it would be a better shot for him. He was an ok college QB that was able to gut check things at times but he does not have a consistent arm at all.

That said, he has not played as a DB, so he would be starting from square one. And that may hurt him too.

Comment 03 Mar 2019

Not sure this is shocking. He was close to Meyer. The staff will have to fight uphill to get him again. I still think they get the WR Jarrett of the group. He seems pretty likely. Sherman is up in the air. The DT is not going to OSU. 

Comment 28 Feb 2019

Yeah, I figured he was the sure thing five star guy. Flemming seems like OSU is going to be in the hunt but is not running out in front at the moment. Could be wrong though.
