The OSU insiders seem positive but not sure it is totally clear yet. OU was the favorite but are out. OSU seems like they are in good position to land him though. At least at the moment. Who knows after the SEC tour though.
No, I am not sure it was 100% either but I have never seen so many balls heaved up by McSorley and have their WR come down with them. Just one of those things I guess.
That whole game was frustrating. Not that the kick block did not count, but OSU dominated about every aspect of that game except a couple fluke plays and was unable to put it away. An odd game.
Have landed a few, but need a few more. It for sure has been an uphill climb for linemen for some reason the last season or so.
Chubb will be solid if he can stay healthy. Not sure about the other guys. Henry, at least to me, has been disappointing so far. Not bad but not anything special either.
It is always strange to me that I have heard some gripes that OSU players are surrounded by talent and this is sometimes a knock on them. Does not seem to be used against Alabama much though. Not that I haveh eard it often but I have heard it.
Who knows? Some people will throw out the trendy pick, some want to have as much information as possible before doing it. Still does not mean they are right in the end but maybe he wants to hear something more firm than what he is hearing? BG is usually pretty spot on for OSU recruiting. Or at least seems to be right more times than not.
Solid games except for Clemson and Syracuse. I know the later played much better last year but who knows if that will hold from year to year. Clemson could steam role them, get overhyped and syracuse ends up being a hot mess. Who knows?
On paper the team is there in terms of talent and experienced coaches. How it comes together with the players, new coaches, new QB and so on is something we will have to see. I think in reality the drop off should not be that high from previous years.
Hoping for a step forward on defense and a high scoring offense. Ideally more balanced than last year with the passing and running, but whatever one needs to do to score TDs. With Ryan as the head coach, I am not as concerned as I would be otherwise on offense. I am hopeful about defense. The talent is there.
Funny guy, very sad to have to lose anybody. Laughter in the world is precious.
OSU's bowl record always surprises me when I see it. Just surprising to see sub-500 for that. With all the big wins OSU has had in the post season over the years.
If the defense takes steps forward and the offense is balanced and efficient than I have no worries. It is not all on Fields but alot of it is. Haskins had one of the best years ever. Fields does not need to be that but needs to keep the offense humming.
OSU is still more talented than pretty much everybody they will play. Games will not be easy but they should be favored in them. I see this year as being more of the same. Teams get up to play OSU and then fall apart the following week to make the tough game not look as good as one would think it should be. Just the way it goes.
I think Day has a good season. Probably one loss somewhere in there, but that is all I think he gets. When it is and if it impacts them getting into the big ten title game, no idea.
Is PSU really a trap game? I do not think that is what that means. It would be two tough games in a row. I doubt players look ahead past PSU much, given how the games have gone the last few years.
I am not sure I buy Nebraska until they do something. NW is not soft but does not have top end talent at every position and Wisconsin is physical but can be one dimensional.
I get people thinking about these games, but to me it is more the gauntlet of playing them all in a row is more concerning than any one of the teams.
I would be a bit surprised if they lose that many games. If they lose that many and the coach is in trouble, it would affect recruiting. If the coach gets the axe than it majorly effects recruiting. Still does not mean you lose everybody though.
Not sure if there is anything wrong with hating him. He left and was successful somewhere else. It is a problem that they still blame him for everything. Despite how many coaches and such going through there after.
Well, that and you also tend to lose them in groups too. Either to the draft or graduation. So, feels like with the spread you need like four a class to keep things rolling.
I guess they have a great OL recruiter there...
This may shock you, but the list above has several three star kids too. All classes do.
I think four is good, expanding too much just adds too many more games IMO. The kids would love to play but injuries. They are playing so many games, like an NFL season for no money. Despite generating more revenue for everybody else (yeah, they get a scholarship, but that is not balancing compensation).
I agree with what you are saying about the different conferences. More needs to be done for consistency. And some rules about no FCS games would be great. It is still a joke to me that does not hurt these teams from the SEC more than it does, not at all.
Or focus more on 2021 I guess. OL in particular would be great at this point, any and all recruiting welcomed there.
Feels that OL for OSU has been an uphill climb the last few years...
I do not agree with many of the vocal posters. It can be very nasty business. Greatly increasing cancer risk and so on. Is it something that most people need to worry about in a given house? Probably not, but it would be better to test than to not test in most cases.
I suppose, but OSU's secondary was more suspect than it had been too. They were also forced into desperation in that game and out of their comfort zone. Big numbers in the passing game happen when you are behind by three or so scores for much of the game.
MSU in 2015. Assuming they could get their act together after that too.
It is good, although the fanbases opinion on this guy is all over the place. I will be excited when he signs a piece of paper.
