OSU never really recruited him hard, and he felt like one of those guys who was looking to go out of state from the onset.
- Bosu Ball
- Swiss Ball
- Those 5-15 lb rubber balls you slam on the ground.
- 1/2 rubber floor is awesome. The rolled kind you see in Lifetime----it's indestructible.eps
- Pull up bar.
Hicks was special at UT an his loss wasn't from a lack of effort. I remember he and his coach had to set-up weekly conference calls with his final teams just to reduce the amount of calls from all over the country. OSU wanted him.
Kelly: he was never on any OSU recruitniks' radar and was one of those overlooked gems. Major props to Saban for finding him from all the way down in Alabama. It's easy for Bama to find national Ohio players like a Carman, Paris Johnson, or a Jack Sawyer....but to find a low 3-star in Ohio that becomes an All American for you is not easy.
Kraemer/Carman: big losses and would have been nice to have them at RT against Clemson this year. Oh well. Kraemer never considered anyone but ND and Carman clearly wanted to go OOS, so I don't get too worked up.
Jake Butt was a big loss just because of his top end talent, but we don't utilize the TE position effectively so who cares.
Is Frank Clark a 2010's guy? He was an under the radar guy who I don't think OSU seriously considered but he had a good final year at TTUN and he obviously has been a star in the NFL.
Pharoah Brown: I never heard of him until now.
Lynn Bowden: would have jumped at an OSU offer...but he was one of those Ohio recruits that Urban liked to slow play.
I sympathize with his childhood, however, it sounds like he shot off his gun into the car filled with people while he was at Florida. The documentary quickly glossed over it (probably because charges were never filed) but the guy was clearly a psychopath well before any any CTE or meth-laced marijuana things could have screwed him up.
Some people are pre-programmed for violence. AH took that and multiplied it by 100x.
How many starting NFL QB's have better mobility than Burrow? Lamar Jackson and _______?
And I'd put Burrow's arm strength against all but 5 starting NFL QB's.
If there's not one already, it's 100% certain there will be a picture of Mr. Ruby and Burrow in all his restaurants in the next few weeks. Guaranteed as much as the sun will be setting in the west tonight!
Jeff Ruby....master marketer. You can't buy this kind of publicity. Lots of respect for him...he treats his employees very well.
He seems to be a Buckeye supporter...but as the master marketer it's hard to tell his motives sometimes, but it doesn't matter. A good dude.
I seem to remember them dropping he gayness in the middle of Episode 2 (with very little discussion) and then not bringing it back up again until the end of Episode 3. It was very strange.
Burrow is the most sure-fire NFL QB coming into a draft since Andrew Luck.
He's that good. There's no guarantees in life, so who knows what he'll do in Cincy, but heading into the draft he's the most NFL ready QB since Luck and Manning.
Looks like a great opportunity for the young man. As long as Hafley stays away from our young assistants like Al Washington and Hartline and key behind the scenes guys like Mickey, Pantoni, and our lead graphics designer....I'm okay.
There's so much talent in Baton Rouge that they will remain a very good team going-forward. Young up-and-coming coaches should jump at the chance to coach those dudes and work for Coach O.
The key will be for Coach O to find good coaches.
Thankfully, Ryan Day has shown he can hire good dudes (Hafley, Mattison, Al Washington, promoting Corey Dennis). Gotta have a deep bench if you're OSU.
I love Coach O. And how about "they gotta go out and there and represent the peeeeeple of the state of Louisiana.""""""
Mike Brown says what the hell and after a 3-day cocaine binge:
- Hires the top ortho surgeon in the world who attests Tua's knee is 100% ready.
- Cocaine Mike keeps it on the down low and trades down to the Dolphins for their 3 first round draft picks this year.
- Bengals take Tua, Andrew Thomas, and Jerry Jeudy.
- Cocaine Mike wins the Super Bowl his Dad never could.
A guy can dream, can't he?
As an old dude who occasionally lives vicariously thru younger dudes at my college homecoming, I agree OBJ took the post game celebrations a little too far. I'm all about handing out cigars and adult beverages and maybe a little dance or two.....but he was acting like he caught the damn winning TD pass.
Given how Kiner and Edwards both have OSU and TTUN in their top two, it feels like one will go to each school.
Robert Smith and Ricky Powers did the same thing a few year ago although both of them were Ohio guys.
Letting Sunshine run freely through OSU's defense was not a good look (was an adjustment made?); just felt like Clemson's defense was better prepared. Not sure why Clemson's coaches got Sunshine in a position to win the game but when it was time for Fields to win the game they laid an egg.
TTUN is at full blown dumpster fire status right now; especially on the OL/DL.
And big time respect for Alex Williams. He accomplished something that 99.9% of all football players never do, and that's to play for a team that gets to a CFB playoff game and win a Rose Bowl. Awesome.
Hypothetically, what does OSU do if the starting kicker (Haubeil) gets hurt and the back-up is being gray-shirted (Siebert)?
- Can you play the gray-shirt?
- I assume you can because he's not on scholarship, but he probably loses a year of eligibility?
Day and his staff were out-coached against Clemson---but no biggee. Dabo has been at the top for +5 years and it was Day's first year as a head coach. Shit happens. However, I feel like Day and the staff put the Bucks in a position to win.
I have a funny feeling that Day will get another shot at Clemson in the coming years.
Did he really say this? I watched the Gamecast with Pat MacAfee so I don't know, but no one in their right mind should have thought Joe Brady would stay a QB coach next year.....unless LSU wanted to pay him at least $2 million/year which I don't think they were going to do.
Just a few years ago, the Bengals were one of the few teams in the NFL to make it to the playoffs 5 years in a row. Granted, they were drafting out their yahoos (picking guys like Geno Atkins in the 4th round or so), but assuming the get back to drafting at that level (not guaranteed), the Bengals have recent history of success.
Jonah Williams better be elite though......
Yea, if you've won 3-4 Super Bowls and raked-in at least $20 million, I think it would be hard to play the recruiting game with 14-17 year old kids in high school -----you're a former NFL and college star....no effing way.
I said the same thing, too (not that I'm any kind of OSU guru); however, common sense says there's NO WAY the Wade family agrees to come back next year if they didn't know who the OSU DB coach was going to be.
No way in hades would he would have come back, and there's only one coach out there who couldn't publicly accept the job (because there's only one possible guy in the NFL playoffs)........
WLW is probably the best source for Cincy sports especially rumors, etc. I'm sure one of their radio guys has a good connection into the Coombs family (Colerain) or his agent (if he's Cinti based).
