The claims are he's a good recruiter but honestly it remains to be seen. It's easy to recruit Texas and Florida when the school you work at is in those states. Try recruiting those kids to come up north and play for crazy Jim, it's a tall order. Bob Shoop is probably the successor to Don Brown. I don't see how any hire will move the needle in their direction.

Comments like these are hilarious. On one hand we are suppose to respect the student athletes at OSU, and on the other hand we trash them to hell and back every time they make a bad play and ask for them to be benched in game threads.

I think we're pretty set on corners right now. Wade, Riep, Brown, Banks, Williamson, T Johnson, Cavazos, and Watts. Reaching for another corner late in the cycle is not going to move the needle in the future. And considering we are in on some of the best corners in 2021, I don't know why we would be reaching for bodies now.

This is a bad take. Not every 5 star prospect and their families are going to take the illegal route and pawn their child off to a university or money. Okudah and Young are different because they're great people raised by great people and actually have values.

It's not out of the realm for Miyan to start. He's physically ready for college, just like JK Dobbins was when he got here. Has anyone here even seen a pic of him? He's like 5'10 220lbs already.

They had a touchdown taken away from them. It matters. When you have trouble scoring TDs in the red zone, you need all the help you can get, and a fumble scoop and score would have absolutely helped them. It would have been a 2 score lead at that moment. OSU would have had 30 points at that moment, which is more than Clemson scored in that game.

There's really nothing to this.

But we all know our next DC is going to be Kerry Coombs. It's been about a month since Hafley left for BC and there's been no talk of anyone else. You don't really go this long without fulfilling an empty position on your coaching staff.

If you read the tea leaves, it's already happened. OSU is waiting for the Titans season to be over, and Coombs will come back making probably a million dollars. Everyone knows. Austin Ward knows, Vrable knows, they all know.

I like Cam Martinez film but I just don't see how he projects to play here at OSU. He just seems all around good but not great or elite in anything other than maybe his vision and shiftyness when he has the ball in his hands.

Would I take him at corner or safety over what we have coming in? No.

Would I take him at WR with what we have coming in? No

He's at his best when he has the ball in his hands, so would he play RB? I wouldn't take him over what we have.

The only position I think he could play and would succeed with is basically what he did in high school, which is being a wildcat QB. And the big reason, other than his height, that he doesn't project well at any other position is his speed. If he was 4.3 or 4.4 I'd be like sure he could become an excellent corner/WR, but he's like a 4.5/4.6 guy. And then factor in the scholarship crunch and it makes you seem we could do without him in the class.

You can make a case for and against bringing Zach Evans in but I'll say one thing, Evans coming to OSU is probably the thing Evans needs most in his life from a maturation standpoint. I can't imagine a better supporting cast Ryan Day, Tony Alford and the kind of leadership and maturity these players have. And I'm sure getting away from home would really help him.

As a Vikings fan you can have him. His play calling was atrocious. And this news coming out a day after our season ended makes me wonder when exactly he quit on the team, probably sometime over the week I imagine.
Comment 11 Jan 2020
I know. But I'm just saying it's not technically official. It's not 100% that he's going to the draft and that he can't turn back, he still technically can. It honestly seems like he's waiting on who the next OSU DB coach is going to be, if it's indeed Coombs. They aren't allowed to have contact right now.
Comment 11 Jan 2020
It's not really official though. He could still technically return to college. The deadline is like a week after the title game.
