Tathan Martell will do pretty well in Neal Brown's offense. Also helps that the Big XII firmly believes that defense is optional.
Picture of Elijah Black at a function for Buckeye lacrosse. Posting because to me, that helmet on the table looks pretty white. Cocaine whites in the offing?
Some interesting 2020 follows for the official recruiting account of the Buckeyes. A somewhat underwhelming class may get a whole lot better, fast. Lots of time until November.
Need him now that Tate is apparently in the portal.
Watson fits the mold that Myers prefers on D. Kid is a monster on the field physically. He's not the quickest laterally, but makes up for it with a nasty streak. He'll crosscheck you into next week if you try to get cute on the sideline.
Watson has mastered the can opener as well. He can cause a turnover in nothing flat if you're lazy in the dodge or carry. Watson is a freight train on the carry, but changes hands way too much. He'll hang on to the ball for 5 or 6 seconds while the stick goes from his right to his left hand. Overall, a nice pickup for the Buckeyes.
Side note, OSU will have 2 out of 3 d-poles on this season's Episcopal School of Dallas roster.
WHOOP WHOOP. It's the sound of the pole-ice! Henry Watson of the Episcopal School of Dallas makes it official. More on him in a bit, but Watson is only the 2nd pole in the 2020 class.
May go to Maryland with Locksley.
And Saban won't be the coach at Alabama...
Readying the klaxon. Sounds like we got another pole for 2020.
A few Buckeye alums in the college coaching ranks.
Coach Myers tips the cap to the impressive number of pro players who have come through the program.
OSU with the 6th-toughest schedule in the country at D1.
Doing research for the next post, and found one of the funniest screwups I've every seen. Maryland, in its official rundown of the 2017 title game (ugh), lists OSU as winning 8 of 19 faceoffs. The Buckeye FOGO that day? Everett Withers.
Link for proof:
Those rankings are always great, because they give so many excuses to teams that underperform (*cough*Hopkins*cough*). Jays were 7-6 a couple years ago and ranked 11th or something. Name means so much more.
As for the Bucks, Penn State always underperforms, and Rutgers just lost their best offensive player maybe ever. The Buckeyes should make the B1G tournament, which may be the toughest tournament to win in the country.
Don't sleep on TTUN either. Noseworthy is a legit O middie that helped them beat Notre Dame last year (Buckeyes haven't beaten the Irish in 15 tries). TTUN is killing it in recruiting too. This league is only getting tougher.
Interesting non-lacrosse tweet from the lacrosse account.
Love to see lacrosse at the Olympics. Would prefer to see a shot clock in the international game too. Hopefully it happens soon!
I enjoy doing them, and it helps scratch the lacrosse itch just a little bit. Hope your nephews get hooked for life! The game gets in your blood once you start playing and following.
It kind of does. I think the shot clock will speed up subs a bit, but it's a mystery until we see things in action. Watch some of Virginia's poles on YouTube. They do things I never dreamed of doing with a shortie growing up.
I had no idea that happened in the women's game. That's really interesting.
Would have made way more sense for Notre Dame to join the B1G, not Hopkins. Hopkins is in because of Maryland, but Notre Dame really fits a Midwest conference very nicely.
Hopefully the rest of the B1G will look to add teams soon. Love to see a 9 or 10 game Big Ten conference schedule.
