What drought are we speaking of? Weber will be on an NFL team this year, OSU has Dobbins Teague McCall and brought in a 4* frosh who may get pt.  We lost one guy in Snead who looked to be a hell of a back but I wouldn’t call that a drought.  

Also Chambers may get a RB shot and Gill May end up playing some Samuel type role where he gets 2-5 carries a game

Yea his form was ok but there’s no reason he should be lifting like he is.  His legs were flying around every rep.  That’s not on him at all; his HS strength coach should know that you set your legs and they stay in the floor to help generate power.  

Backwise it is pretty normal to be like he is; it’s even encouraged in big time lifting to have a huge arch

I like MM as much as the next guy, but the older I get the more I wish it was top 16 teams in the country best 2 out of 3 games.  

Cinderellas are a fun story, but I feel like most years they make the sweet 16 then lose by 25+.  I would rather not have a team have a pseudo "bye" to the 8 or something.

I love filling out the brackets and I always watch, but I don't like a Syracuse team who is 7-10 in the ACC squeaking in then using a bullcrap 2-3 zone to make the 4

I mean we live in the age of transfers, so we absolutely could have 2 grad transfers come in or just 2 transfers who aren't sitting out.  Seems we are almost in a free agency game

There was a picture of Zeke in the hospital that surfaced shortly thereafter.

Not sure what it was but that was confirmed 

Comment 05 Feb 2019

I mean they are looking at the past 5 national champions, with 4 of those 5 being 2 teams.  

Their last metric was a dumb one, as true freshmen are not going to be all over the field for a national champion in most years.  You will get 1-2 guys who really contribute (Lawrence, Tua and his WRs for example) but it doesn't matter if you are the best recruiter in your conference for that same year IMO.

They had to get it down to 2 somehow.  Their top 3 and #5 seem way more important than #4 and #6.  None of FSU/UM/UF are going to dominate their state with how many top players there are in state, so they could never qualify for that.  It's hard to get 1/3 of the top players in a state that has 50ish top 300 players for example.  It was dumb to boot UGA out for just that reason with how much competition they have for those players.  Getting 30% is pretty damn good

You probably aren't firing him the day before NSD.  You MAY do it thursday.  However, as I said Day may have laid down the law for 2020; do a way better job or get out.  The offense last year was one of the best in school history, so Stud needs to get at least some recognition for that.  No he didn't do it alone, but it's a team game and our pass protection was pretty good every game

Comment 05 Feb 2019

Maybe this is Day giving him one last shot.  Not saying he is/isn't deserving but maybe Day knows this and is giving him 2020 to turn it around. 

And if we are looking at 2020, we have a great OL class right now.  We need to keep pounding that pavement, but 3 guys right now with 2 being 5* level players 

Comment 04 Feb 2019

I said to my friend who is a born and raised Pats fan that I think any of the top 5 QBs of this generation would have had similar success as Brady.

Manning almost never had a defense anywhere near as good as the Pats' Ds.  Brees has a similar story.

There are stat charts done showing that while Brady is absolutely great, his defenses were always lightyears ahead of his qb "competitors" (brady brees etc).  

If you switched out Brees and Brady over the last 15 years, do you think they have won 5+ SBs? I do

Comment 03 Feb 2019

A bit strange considering OSU has no CBs for him and USC has picked up a couple in the last couple of days and has 100% of his CBs.  

OSU insiders who are confident should put their money where their mouth is!! I want him 

Comment 01 Feb 2019

When i say bundled up i mean anything more than a tshirt on a morning walk with the dog.  That to me means 60 in the morning.  

Comment 01 Feb 2019

I moved back home to Texas in November and couldn't be happier.  You  get the warm weather without the sky high prices on homes.  I lived in Miami for 6 years and that real estate market is expensive near the city.  I don't want to be bundled up for 5 months a year (dallas you bundle up on and off for 3)

Not much talk about Rosemy out of STA for the receiver group, but Birm seems to think OSU has a good shot with him

If that happens, a player like St. Thomas Aquinas 5-star Marcus Rosemy could emerge as a guy who could be next — since he’ll likely get in a visit to Ohio State before then. He remains very high on the Buckeyes, and Hartline has started to take over the South Florida recruiting scene for Ohio State, which is helping grow that relationship.

Comment 29 Jan 2019

I agree with this, but guys don't scare you until they produce.  Zeke didn't scare anyone in the spring of 2014, and didn't really scare teams until the end of the season in 2014.  People wanted him benched for Samuel early in the year.

Coming into this season, Holyfield had 320 total yards on 56 carries.  Swift was used as the 3rd back last year and had like 600.  OSU uses 1 back historically as a workhorse (switched up a bit the last 2 years), so your 3rd back has never gotten much production.  

I do expect big things from Crowley.  Teague already showed us a bit of his potential.  I do expect Gill to get some carries like Samuel did from that position (maybe 3-5 a game, but not be a 10 touch back)

Comment 29 Jan 2019

We will need probably 3 OTs in this class I would think.  We are lacking bodies now and need to catch up likely a bit.  So he could be our "3rd" if we are lucky enough to get him and another 

Comment 29 Jan 2019

I dunno; there were probably 8-10 big time contributors to a top 3 program in the country on that list.  I'm not saying it was full of stars, but I won't say it was an awful class.  Bad by OSU standards maybe though
