How could he be overrated and still win 91% of his games at OSU? That doesn't make sense to me. 

I'm sure you have some examples, but the #'s say otherwise.

Buckeye nation, thinks he's a high quality rb. Outside of BN, no one else views him in the same lens. 

Do me a favor and go watch film on YouTube and you'll see he lacks burst, quickness and breakaway speed. 

I don't dislike him, but talent wise he isn't as good as:

  • Beanie
  • Elliott
  • Hyde

He wasn't even projected to go in the 1st round.

all he had was power. 

Comment 26 Jul 2017
  • Krenzel gets too much credit, and there is no way he is a top 5 Ohio state QB
  • Hubbard is over hyped. He hasn't done anything of note
  • Tressels team lacked overall talent. 
  • Clarett is grossly overrated.

Clean cut is someone

  • who doesn't dress slovenly. 
  • has their hair reasonable - whether you have a fro, dreads, buzz cut, fade it looks reasonable neat
  • doesnt disrespect 

I don't have a problem with his clean cut statement. I think most high profile colleges want these types of kids because they "tend" to be better leaders. Not saying a kid dressed sloppy can't be a leader, rather it's not the norm.

Plus, this goes beyond sports and he wants clean cut kids who will most likely get around other type kids and go on to create businesses, Startups and be executives; then turn around and give back to their alma mater.

I think LaVar is a genius. 

Lets look at what he is doing:

  • he says his son his better than Curry
  • he says that he could beat MJ one on one
  • he's been invited on espn and fox talk shows.
  • he gets retweeted by popular people on twitter
  • he launches a shoe brand and articles are run on CNN, ESPN, WSJ, Forbes, Yahoo

Virtually everything he does and says creates buzz and press. I think he knows he's a loud mouth and people dislike him, but it's keeping his brand and his kids in the limelight.

I don't care for him personally, but I respect what he is trying to build

Your takes in this thread seem to be a bit off. When you say that our players aren't at the level of Bama players...does that exclude the record Ohio State set for the number of players drafted the first 3 rounds??

ok... something is not right

Greise said that in practice, he was running just fine in their last practice.

Peppers is not with the team on the sideline 

I bet he was suspended or did something to violate team rules, but Jimmy said to blame it on his hamstring.

Comment 31 Dec 2016

I amazed that Jimmy didn't have him on the sideline helping his teammates and being a leader. A leader doesn't try and hide, they face the challenge and do their best to conquer it. 

That guy is a punk.
