I scored a 46 the one time I did this test.  it is standard testing for a forensic accounting firm I interviewed with.  

The hardest part is working fast and skipping problems that are long. 

The first few questions are literally asking you which of these are days of the week and what is the 10th month of the year.  Towards the end there are a lot more "which of these 4 designs can be put together to create a 4X4 cube" or "if a small page in a magazine is 6500 words and a large page is 12000 words, and you rent 26 pages and have 200000 words, how many big and small pages did you order"

I mean he was at the spring game 2 weeks ago, and he's boys with 2 other cincy kids who are going to end up at OSU.  

Tell me how you know OSU is not in first place.  Unless you're the three eyed raven 

Comment 22 Apr 2019

Kenny G, purely for the reason that I said the phrase "Fire Meyer" during that game and "Rehire Meyer" after it.  My friends and I still will text it to each other when things are going badly (well not this year with Meyer gone) and then turn it around

Comment 19 Apr 2019

I agree with a lot of what you're saying, but these kids sign on a dotted line committing to a school for their undergraduate years.  The staff recruits kids who they think will be at the school for 3-5 years.  Money and time is spent with the kid to develop skills both on the field and off it.  

OSU took Tate Martell and told him they wouldn't recruit another kid in his class.  Tate lost a job and left.  OSU should have recruited 2 QBs in his class maybe. 

It will change the way programs recruit QBs, and already has 

Comment 19 Apr 2019

I say let the dust settle and see what happens.

Hell Lamont Wade put his name in the transfer portal then ended up staying at PSU. Maybe he is just exploring his options, similar to kids putting their names in the NBA draft to see where they project then returning to school.

I will never fault a kid for wanting to play, but Baldwin joined OSU off a bad injury with Martell and Haskins having multiple years of eligibility.  He had to likely know his first chance to start at OSU was 2020 right?

Hawk. James L, Lee, Hooker etc.

It's not one 3*, but it's true enough that 4*s and 5*s have a higher chance of success.  Every school has that 

Comment 17 Apr 2019

Ward, Sheffield, Lattimore, Roby, and Conley all played corner, not safety, so of course they are faster.  That's the problem with your comment.  That's like saying we are recruiting a TE and you say he isn't as fast as all the WRs we recruited.

Hooker is the only real burner I can remember at safety in the past 5 years.

We have recruited Pryor, Wynt, Fuller, White, Proctor at safety.  I don't know if those guys are burners (Proctor maybe)

Comment 17 Apr 2019

The vest started slipping when Coopers kids filtered out.

Wait what?  Back to back national title appearances in 2006-2007, he was 5-3 in BCS games and we won or tied for winning the B1G basically every year.

The vest had no slippage after the Cooper years.  2004 was really his only bad year aside from his first transition year

Comment 17 Apr 2019

The real issue is we aren't even in senior year yet.  Kids grow, and kids in Ohio, where they can't be in pads except for in season, get knocked in the rankings because of it.  They aren't "developed" as players like kids in other states.

I'm not saying he should/shouldn't be a take, I'm just stating the fact that kids in the midwest blossom later due to the lack of spring football in the area.  It could be a reason why Wisky/Iowa/MSU have been so successful; finding the right stars down the road 2-3 years

Comment 17 Apr 2019

Maybe no longer having Urban made him realize he isn't safe going forward.  He seems to be doing a much better job this cycle, so hopefully he keeps it up 

Comment 16 Apr 2019

OSU has recruited as well as anyone over the past 3 years.  We had 2 of the best per recruit classes in history in 16/17.  

It's natural to see what others are doing and freak out.  Our average per player is above .92, which is really good.  Our class is better than Bama's on player by player comparison.  

When OSU's recruiting actually slips up i'll worry a bit.  There is nothing to indicate it has or will in the near future 

Comment 16 Apr 2019

Not relevant to the fact that he is apparently visiting UGA again this weekend.  

OSU fans want him to stop taking visits.  They will freak out until he does so 

Comment 16 Apr 2019

I mean Haskins wasn't good in the spring game last year. 

As you said below, we have more time to get him in the groove with no huge OOC games.  Cincy will be good, but we should be able to out talent them if the QBs still aren't firing on all cylinders.  

However, not many teams we play will have the defense the offense plays every day 

Comment 15 Apr 2019

I just don't think anyone could say that we were unequivocally one of the best teams in the country in 2016

I can and do say we were unequivocally one of the best 4 in 2016.

We dominated the Big 12 Champion OU at their house.  We beat a top 10 Wisconsin at their house.  The next week, we had a road game against PSU when they were coming off a bye, and we statistically dominated them (413-276 yards, 19-13 first downs, 37 Minutes TOP), where they needed a blocked FG and Punt to squeak out a win.  We beat a top 5 Michigan team they got blown out by to end the season.  PSU also lost to a bad Pitt team, which gave them a second loss.  They don't just weigh all 4 of the factors equally and say, well PSU had head to head and won the conference.  They say, OSU had 3 wins over top 10 teams, and according to game control, dominated PSU as well.  We think those factors weigh in favor of OSU

OSU didn't play well in the Fiesta that year; you can't take the results and use that as a reason why the committee was wrong.  Same reason why you can't say they were right in 2017 or 2018 about leaving OSU out.  They could have been, but you can't use results to justify it after the fact 

Comment 11 Apr 2019

Yea, there aren't going to be a ton of games going on Saturday noon time in any other sports.

NBA playoffs start at 1:30 et so you won't have to worry about that and NHL playoffs are not until 2pm et.

You probably wouldn't even need a ton of TVs as no one will be there since no games are on at that time

Better bet is go to the watch party location for OSU games in your area; they will surely put it on (and have lots of tvs as suggested) 

Comment 08 Apr 2019

You sure seem angry that guys who OSU actively slowed down recruiting are committing elsewhere, since you commented on it about Mickens too.

Mickens and Williams sure look like good players, but maybe the guys OSU likes better are more in line with fits, or their potential is higher than guys they think may have already peaked.  Maybe we stopped recruiting them because they gave the staff info that they weren't interested in going to OSU for whatever reason

No reason to keep being sour about everything

Comment 08 Apr 2019

Yea, being in the slot sure hurts a guy like Julian Edelman.  Guy has spent his entire career in the slot and been extremely productive.

The best place for him is in the slot, as he can make himself open on almost every play, and can serve as the primary or an outlet as necessary
