Agreed that he was going to be a Buckeye, but wasn’t there rumors of something in addition to the Game Day recruiting violation?
At the time I thought it must be a dead ball if the ball never leaves the end zone. About a month ago I’m watching YouTube videos of crazy football plays or something like that and a player fielded a kickoff in the end zone, without taking a knee he turns and tosses the ball to an official. The ref avoids the ball and the kicking team (Clemson?) recovers for a touchdown. I immediately thought of the Sugar Bowl and that it was a fumble OSU could have recovered for a TD.
That’s horrible. If I read it correctly, the guy is a 5th year senior who’s finally getting his chance to start. You have to feel bad for the guy. This young man’s dreams are shattered and you’re celebrating because he plays for a different team? Not good.
I was one of those idiots that stormed Indiana’s field in 1996. Some of the players stayed on field and celebrated with us, but not all of them. We had just charged the field and I saw Orlando Pace jogging to the locker room. Like an idiot, I jumped in front of him to celebrate or something (not sure what I was thinking) and he threw a forearm shiver that sent me flying about five yards and put me flat on my back. It may not show on the stat sheet, but I got pancaked by Pace on IU’s field.
Love the part about Grant Toutant’s sister. Good stuff.
If he didn’t show, there wouldn’t be much drama for his announcement, but by going, there will definitely be some intrigue. I’m not saying that’s the purpose of the trip though.
What about skyline chili dogs? You lose half the meal if you try to eat with your hands. You have to use a fork and knife.
Between Bo and Harbaugh, I believe a Michigan Man who is someone that fails on the biggest stage and falls back on academics and integrity as an excuse for their failures.
Same here. My dad isn’t originally from Ohio and he doesn’t have the passion for OSU sports, so our bonding time came while watching Whitaker and the guys you named. I think my dad is still upset that Richard Steele stopped the Chavez / Meldrick Taylor fight with about 2 seconds left in the final round with Taylor ahead on the scorecards.
Hell Yeah! I can only imagine how much better you feel. Is it expensive to be constantly buying smaller clothes?
I don’t think the scholarship count of 85 is the issue. I think it’s the hard cap of 25, right? So OSU can give a deserving pwo a scholarship and still sign 25 guys.
Taylor also hinted at Evans in today’s Hurry Up. He said something about giving a scholarship for a developmental qb or going after a five star player, like Evans. His name seems to be coming up a lot from people in the know.
2 QB’s is different than 4 WR’s. All four will be on the field at the same time and the defense won’t be able to double team or give safety help to all of them. Their talent compliments each other perfectly. See the UM game last year for reference.
The staff is addressing the areas of need with elite talent. You have to be excited about the potential of this class.
So their 7 v 7 team had Scott, Fleming, and Demas? With those three on the roster it’s no wonder they won the championship and Stroud made the Dream Team.
UM fans will claim victory for this commitment, but the real winners are the Vegas bookies because ttun fans will be throwing their money away on UM to win the National Championship. I should be a bookie who only takes bets for ttun and the Lions. I would be able to buy LeBron’s house in Cleveland in a couple of years.
The NBA is going to be fun to watch next year. As a Cavs fan I prefer the good old days when the question going into the season was can the Cavs get past the Warriors, but the league as a whole should be more exciting.
I thought I remember hearing/reading that Fleming lacked top end speed. I may have even read he was a 4.65 - 4.7 guy. He put an end to that crap. Wow.
That’s one of the coolest stories I’ve ever read! Awesome and Congrats on the American Dream!
I was a kid when OSU played A&M (some time in the mid 80’s) and all their fans were swinging their 12th man towels all game. I hated it. I don’t really remember the game but I remember at the end OSU players were standing on the benches swinging their towels and taunting their fans. I was watching at home but I grabbed a little hand towel and joined in the fun. - I have no idea what people do who don’t enjoy sports.
Boom! Great way to start the day!
I get it, but guys that made millions playing in the NFL don’t typically put in the work recruiting to be great. Hartline is obviously different than most.
I thought Hartline would be an upgrade over ZS as a coach, but I didn’t think he would recruit as well. I don’t think I could have been more wrong. He’s absolutely tearing it up on the trail.
That is hilarious. If I can trust 247, Illinois only has 3 commits. OSU has more guys committed for 2021. That’s insane. Maybe I’m reading something wrong because that can’t be right, can it?
I sort of remember an OSU coach tweeting about going to a city and planting flags, but for some reason ttun fans act like Gattis is some sort of genius for doing what others have been doing for a while. Also, when UM had their run of commits, MGo was going nuts claiming the #1 class in the Big Ten, predicting a top 5 finish and easily top 10, and talking about how they finally were getting the talent comparable to Clemson and Alabama. If you have time to kill, go read the Hello posts on their blog. It’s sort of ridiculous and absolutely hilarious.
Fast forward 7 - 10 days. OSU lands a few recruits, easily passing them despite still having less commits and they are back to hating on the recruiting services and bitching about having their hands tied in recruiting due to character and academic requirements at Michigan. It’s amazing how quickly they went from thinking they were right there with the elite programs to posting articles and statistics that show you can be elite without recruiting elite.
I thought OSU would undoubtedly have the best WR class right now without Mookie, but I was surprised to see LSU has three of the top 7 receivers committed to them. Obviously Jarrett doesn’t mind playing with other highly rated receivers.
