That’s when they spend the rest of their life telling tales about how they tweaked their knee in practice... otherwise they woulda been a HOF’er for sure!
Ohio State is DBU. The Buckeyes turn out more 1st rd Corners than anyone (it's not even close).
In the last 5 years I believe they have produced 2 NFL Defensive Rookies of the Year at the position (Marshon Lattimore & Denzel Ward). Pair these guys with 2 Defensive Ends that also won NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, and the production is just bananas.
The Buckeyes have sent so many studs into the League that have become instant stars...
Having said all that, many prognosticators believe Jeff Okudah is the best of the bunch and that his future is the brightest of all.
The "reporter's" approach and line of questioning at the combine was just bizarre.
Dick Furry... a name for the ages.
In all seriousness, congratulations to the 1960 National Championship team! Also, Buckeye Nation is eternally grateful and thankful for your accomplishments.
That 1960 National Title on the hardwood puts Ohio State in the SUPER-RARE AIR of schools that have won NC's in both Football & Basketball. It is an extremely small and exclusive club. I used to know the exact number of programs that qualified but I don't remember anymore, however I'm certain you can count all of the schools on 2 hands and not even use all of your fingers.
THE Ohio State University is the Elite of the Elite.
If the NFL doesn’t work out, Damon can always pursue a career as an English Literature professor.
Legend Tress. Forever grateful. Will never forget, it was a 34 year drought between 1968 to 2002, when Jim Tressel led the Ohio State Buckeyes to their first National Title in over 3 decades... Buckeye Nation loves you forever coach!!!
Really? EJ Liddell looks like a big-time talent to me. Kid has NBA written all over him. Same with DJ Carton if he ever gets his head right. Both these kids have big-time game, if you can’t see that, then we can’t help you.
Way to put a kid on blast and notify the NCAA or any watchdogs of kids soliciting possible violations. You can always count on the Buckeye Beat to dig up dirt and do the investigators work for them!
As others have said. Jalin Marshall didn’t play WR in HS either. He was a QB.
If anything Ginn played more WR than Marshall did in HS. Just curious why they are counting Marshall’s 5 star rating and not Ginn’s?
It’s either semantics or simple oversight.
Overlooking Teddy Ginn?
Wyatt Crosher tweeted OSU has only ever recruited two 5-star WR’s (Jalen Marshall & Garrett Wilson)...
Pretty sure Ted Ginn Jr was a unanimous 5-star and one of the highest ranked prospects of all-time.
Marcus Crowley & Steele Chambers both have juice. They have the pop in their step needed to excel in our current offense. Maybe Teague does also, but I wouldn’t go changing what we do for Master Teague’s sake.
Yep. Go win your Super Bowl coach! Not worried if 1 defensive back from TSUN has concerns. If he wants to be a Buckeye, be a Buckeye. If not, bye Felicia!
I’d love to have our secondary coach and co-DC flashing a super bowl ring while slamming red bulls on the recruiting trail with all his energy & charisma.
This team is really coming together!
Maybe Duane Washington pushes the transfer portal button. Holtmann gonna bench this dude for the rest of the half everytime he makes a perceived mistake? GTFOH!
Mantis and Montana just nailed it. Everyone’s demeanor is different on the court. Everyone’s effort looks different. It’s disrespectful for Holtmann to act like Duane doesn’t care or isn’t playing with effort. He just doesn’t like his style, Duane doesn’t look the way Holtmann wants him to.
Instead of adjusting to his player, coach is going to try and jam a round peg into a square hole and then blame the peg when it doesn’t fit. The exact thing good coaches don’t do. At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if Washington’s name goes into the portal. He could avg 18/game and make the League if he played for a coach that liked him instead of hated him. This is Holtmann’s worst coaching job. We were #2 in the country a few short weeks ago, now we’re tied for last place in the Big10 with Northwestern LOL!
Seems like Duane is the first player he’s ever benched. Even the druggies are right back in the lineup after they serve a game or 2 suspension. Holtmann loves putting Washington in the doghouse for some reason. I don’t get it.
He’s our most dynamic offensive player. A guy the offense should be built around instead of looking for every possible reason to bench him.
Florida State or Miami. Those are the 2 schools that make the most sense in my opinion.
He already knows the sunshine state inside and out for recruiting purposes, and the ACC is ripe for the picking. There isn't a competent football program in that entire league outside of Clemson, SC.
If Urban takes his talents to Talahassee or Da U, he instantly makes the Seminoles or Canes the #2 program in that conference. Then he can do what he does best: create a culture obsessed with chasing the top dog (Clemson), and doing everything in his power to knock the Tigers off the ACC mountain top.
If Urban Meyer resurrects one of those 2 struggling but proud football programs in FLA, and he is somehow able to win a Natty at a third school... his legend will be cemented as one of the top 3 coaches of all-time, if not the best.
Please do not rush Kyle Young back into action after surgery to remove internal organs.
Last year he missed almost no action after suffering a leg fracture and he was hobbled and re-aggravating the leg for the rest of the season.
Let the young man heal and come back when he's 100% or atleast close to it.
Good choices for class of 2018 recruits. I hope they all step up and succeed.
As for 2019, I look for Jameson Williams to explode onto the scene. Dude has legit rocketpacks for wheels and has already demonstrated nice hands and toughness. I think another full cycle through the off-season program and gained familiarity with the system will have him poised and primed for a breakout 2020 season. We already know there's a ton of WR reps opening up next yr with the departures of Victor, Mack, & Hill.
Teradja Mitchell has like 4 Tuf Borlands and 3 Pete Werners ahead of him on the totem pole seniority depth chart.
This is the dumbest headline I’ve ever seen. So dumb I didn’t even bother clicking the link (which is all they are after obviously).
Stupid clickbait won’t get my traffic. Atleast do better than this if you’re desperate for clicks.
As good as Okudah is, I think Wade is better. To put it simply, I think Wade could do what Okudah is asked to do, I don’t know if Okudah could do what Wade is tasked with.
This. In addition to the fact our game is in Arizona and the other game is in Atlanta.
West Coast games are always the late kick.
GR means they’ve graduated and/or are currently in graduate school. So it’s not appropriate to call them a freshman or sophomore or junior or senior.
Eligibility is a separate issue (you get 5 years to play 4). So if you are able to hit the books and graduate in 3 years, you are able to play 2 seasons as a graduate student if applicable (Joe Burrow, Gunnar Hoak).
Anywhere in the top 4 wouldn’t surprise me honestly. Louisville will probably hold onto the #1 spot, but we have the the best resume (25pt blowout wins over BOTH Villanova & UNC).
i think we’ll be #3. Kansas has a loss, and their wins aren’t as impressive as ours. We should jump the Jayhawks this wk if we take care of PSU.
Tressel for President!!! (of tOSU)
