A friend of mine's wife died Rolle's senior year and he came to visit his two twin boys (probably in HS at the time) just to give them something positive to think about. Quality individual.
Remember when Dantonio had a heart attack after beating ND on a last second fake field goal?
See also Jake Metzer (#93) on the OSU sideline right on the 35 even with the camera. Nice "pose for the camera" moment...
Glad we got him. I wish greyshirting was illegal.
I totally agree. Somehow even the staff writers here have already assumed that Fields is walking in here and blowing the place up. He may well do that, but there have been plenty of top recruits who failed to live up to their projected ceiling.
Honestly, it's ridiculous that this article only puts forward two possibilities for how Field's will perform: "Fields achieves the same kind of success that Dwayne Haskins had as a Buckeye" or "Fields leads the Buckeyes to a national championship or some other form of glory."
IF he wins the job, Fields is replacing a likely first round NFL pick and we're already assuming he'll be equal or better?
Best of luck to Martell, we could easily end up missing him dearly next year. I thought he looked great all season in backup duties. He definitely doesn't deserve all the shit he's getting on this site... and in this article.
Bumping the thread...
Wait, the national championship team took our best player? Thanks Kevin Durant.
I'm confused, are you saying all of these high schoolers need to be starting in the fall? Or that the five seasons in which Meyer went 12-0, 12-2, 14-1, 12-1, 11-2, & 12-2 (with wins over Alabama, Oregon, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, USC, and Michigan x6) just aren't cutting the mustard?
I get it, it's frustrating that we're not as good as Alabama, but we are really not underachieving... we consistently under-recruit vs. Alabama and that is why we lose an average of 1.33 games a year.
Hopefully Army can beat Navy on Saturday. If they do that, they're 9-3 with their two non-OSU losses by a combined 7 points. That's real close to a #25 ranking.
5-38 says TCU winning give us a 25% greater chance of making the playoffs...
+ Urban falling on the ground.
Every time we lose the sky is falling. Tressel was a great coach, so is Meyer, neither is as good as Saban. C'est la vie.
