I'm thinking the same thing. He may get drafted, but unfortunately he won't last long in the NBA. He'll be overseas 18 months from now. I wish him luck though.
It's odd that versatility is considered a negative by the recruiting services.
Can anyone explain how the 247 point system works? If you go into the 247 class calculator, it becomes clear that our total points of 280.61 is the sum of the points that each player "adds" to the class. For example, Jack Sawyer adds 29.88 points to the class. But his rating is 0.9988. What is the mapping between 0.9988 and 29.88? It makes no sense.
If anyone is wondering why I'm asking such an esoteric question, it's because I have nothing better to do on a Sunday evening when there's no sports on.
I'm surprised at only one LB in the projected class. Isn't our LB room extremely old? Meaning, we have something like 4 seniors and 3 juniors?
He was, shall we say, overrated.
I think people get too hung up over an inch here or there, or a few pounds here and there. So because Pryor is 5'9" instead of 5'10", he can't be a great running back?
The 2011 team was incredibly dominant all season, leading the country in several key metrics, winning the Big Ten regular season at 16-2, winning the Big Ten tournament, and being the top overall seed going into March Madness. Then the upset to an under-ranked Kentucky team in the Sweet Sixteen. It's sad that a retrospective of great Buckeye games doesn't include them, due to their early exit, but man were they fun to watch.
Maybe we can have Hartline recruit RBs for one cycle. Land a couple of top RBs for the 2021, then go back to focusing on WR after that.
OK I'm not quite serious, but it's not the worst idea in the world.
Yeah it seems like a lot. Just think of how many recruits have mentioned that they get contacted by someone on the staff nearly every day. If we're doing that with most of the recruits, that works out to something like 14 phone calls per coach per day. Crazy.
"He's going to need a lot of reinforcements at skill positions." Clearly they don't follow recruiting.
I'm surprised Oregon is so high given they lose Herbert. I watched a couple of their games this year and came away thinking, "meh".
Now we just need the Tennessee Titans to lose their next playoff game so that we can complete our coaching staff. If you catch my drift.
The revolving door at #1 tells me there are no dominant teams this year. Which tells me that Ohio State has as good a chance as anything to win the whole enchilada. It will be hard to survive the Big 10 season with fewer than 4 or 5 losses, but we'll be well positioned to make a run in March.
Despite his solid play so far, I think DJ's outside shot needs to improve before he can be a 1st rounder. But as others have said, his potential is very high. Great time to be a Buckeye!
Meanwhile, on the day we sign QBs ranked #83 and #290 in the nation overall, TSUN signs a QB ranked #1106 overall. Harbaugh sure is the QB whisperer all right.
Well, the awards were given out before Zeke went ballistic in 2014, and in 2015 both Henry and Fournette (the consensus All-Americans) had bigger statistical years than Zeke.
Hmmm, Teague is better than JK? Then why didn't he start? I hope Teague is great next year, but let's be a bit realistic.
FSU 2014 is more similar to Ohio State 2015.
Clemson 2019 is a good team.
I have a question about the "we talk multiple times a day" thing. My question is, WTF? Is that really typical of the modern recruiting environment? Do most high school football players actually expect that level of engagement? It seems ridiculous to me. These coaches are already busy coaching their current players. 99% of college students do just fine without having an on-campus babysitter. Why are football players so needy?
Win and keep Fields healthy.
I only need one: they are standing in the way of a Big Ten championship and a #1 seed.
Is the Ohio State defense that good, or the UNC offense that bad? Probably some of both. By mid-second half, they couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. Totally psyched out.
Oh, and we have a number of unforced turnovers, so it could have easily been a 30-35 point win.
LSU is in even if they lose. They will have more quality wins than Utah, Oklahoma, or Baylor (even after a conference championship), and their only loss will be to #3 Georgia. I'd rather that the SEC not get two teams in, so I'll be rooting for Jeaux.
OTOH Georgia doesn't scare me at all. They would score maybe 10 points against us.
I think Utah is in if they win convincingly. And they deserve to be IMO. Their schedule is not as good as Oklahoma's, but OU has had several very meh performances, whereas Utah has been consistent for at least the last 6 weeks.
I don't know how I feel about this. I'm worried a giant black hole is going to swallow up the solar system or something.
Justin will never match Burrow's stats because he doesn't need to. We have a much more balanced offense.
Anyone know how much Burrow has played in the 2nd half this year? Like a breakdown of pass attempts, 1st half vs. 2nd half.
