Wonder how many Buckeye players came from Massillon thru the years? I can remember a time that 4 starters were from Massillon... some side by side..... yeah I know, the days b4 the rust belt.

Go bucks!

Pay Hartline and Hafley more what they are worth to keep them and Day will be around for quite some time. I hope they can keep LJ healthy and well paid until he hangs it up for good. Then hang  a gold plated plaque with his (LJ's) likeness and a tribute in the Woody when he does retire. Those and a golden parachute to boot.   just sayin'.  GO BUCKS!

BZ1 Quote:  "Win with speed. Win with 4 and 5 stars the odds are in your favor."

Agree but I strongly favor 5th year seniors and care SOMEwhat less about star ratings. They are dedicated and more experienced. If they are 4&5 stars so much the better, but that doesn't happen very often these days. GO BUCKS!

"If other Buckeyes can improve their play when he's not on the court,  he can get the bit of rest that will allow him to be more energetic when he's out there playing,"

Funny thing is, I do not remember him playing many games when he played enough times to get tired before he fouled out. Hopefully the advice he took from the tryouts will be heeded.

Go Bucks!  Go KW!  ..just do it!

Being an old Tiger in exile I watch Massillon FB very closely. Jayden Ballard will be a 5* like very soon barring injury!

He has the long range skills of Devin Smith plus an excellent short game. He will be a BUCKEYE,  that I am willing to take to the Bank.

IIRC his QB is in Ballard's class and if so that will a good thing for both TIGERS!   GO BUCKS!

Plastic helmets have contributed greatly to concussions imho.  I don't think there were as many reasons to call targeting before the modern day helmets. The whole call is a farce anyway again imho as a runner will many times lower his head when about to be tackled to protect the ball. .. and likewise the tackler will many times have his head lowered when tackling. Result?: A call on the defender.!

On another subject:  Spearing the carrier in the chest or on the ball to cause a "fumble" should be cause for ejection.   just saying.

Having watched Greg from his Indy No. Lawrence days at our Bill Green Arena in Marion I always thought Greg was a humble young man giving credit to his teammate Mike Conley as the reason for his success I congratulate him for pulling himself to a higher plane. Kudos to you big man! Hope you are around the hoops scene a long while. Your degree and your steadfastness will carry you through!  Go Bucks!

Actually Ramzy imho you are # UNO!  I really enjoy your sports articles. Love the sense of humor that is unique to you as a writer.  The Buorbon.. not so much, but that's okay.  Keep it up man!

Go Bucks!
