I think the B1G didn't want to continue to prop-up Football. With an impressive list of people he beat, Haskins deserved it. Not downplaying Nickal's accomplishments. I may be a little biased. GO BUCKEYES!!!
Bulletin Board Material.
Great coverage. Thank you! Sounds like a good Buckeye buzz going around the event. With all the backs in play, maybe Zeke needs to make an appearance in Dallas.
I hope LSU falls on their face and Jarrett and Ricks have a change of heart and come to the good guys! I know it's a long shot, but man that would be sweet!
I agree 100%, case in point, Michael Thomas. Vastly under utilized under Smith's watch, now is a top 3 WR in the league! I know guys can continue to develop and grow, but that's a big miss by Smith.
When I saw LSU under fire, I thought Ricks would be an easy flip to OSU. He's either really good at holding his cards, or he's not been following the news. I'm surprised more players haven't fled LSU yet. Time will tell.
I don't have any doubts about Fields athletic ability, both feet and arm. However, I think 7 on 7 is a bit different than 11 vs. 11 in front of 110,000+ I hope he has his head on straight!
Excited for the season to ramp up, August 31st can't get here fast enough!
I see what you did there and I sir, tip my hat to you! You should have more up-votes for this!
Man, I would love to see Justin Hilliard have a monster season. I was so hyped when he chose the Buckeyes, but the injury bug just won't go away for that man. That would certainly be an under the radar player.
Any shot at re-engaging with Elias Ricks or Rakim Jarrett now that LSU is in hot water?
I wonder if TCU has pent up frustration, ready to take out on us for the way 2014 ended and they got left out, when all the talking heads were saying they should have been in and tOSU should have been left out of the CFP?
A little extra incentive, but I don't think it will matter in the end.
Man, I watched Moore too... felt like we could have had him easily and went for the FL duo who is not in NEB and FL. However, I did watch Woodbey last night too... kid can hit! That one I do miss for sure! Not trying to dwell on what we had and missed out on, but I just like to follow some of those kids who were hyped up and see how they turn out. I enjoyed that class of '15 article as well... didn't realize so many left from that class!
Just read a headline that said Smith ordered $2,000 worth of sex toys to the Woody and took d*ck pics in the coaches office, among other places... First, if you're having a good d*ck day... take a pic, but secondly... who the hell cares what he buys, how much he spends, etc. As long as Sandusky or Nassar weren't around or involved with said pics, so what. I get on the Chive and see bored at work all day long... no one says a damn thing. Dude wants to take a pic in his office and they pin it on Meyer... like it's his problem... This is out of control!
Being a cheerleader for the return guy... her face is epic! You shouldn't react that way when you're supposed to be cheering them on... not going "oh sh*t, you got knocked the f*ck out!" HAHAHA!
I laugh every time you chime in on these. "As I've discussed at length... As I've said before.... stated above..." I know not everyone on here comes daily and reads everything, sometimes they skim things (I do as well) but it's funny how many times you have to repeat yourself. Kudos for actually repeating yourself, it would frustrate the life out of me!
I don't disagree with you as I think we would have been in good hands either way, but I think a little part of the decision to go with Haskins was due to the public. They called for him when JT struggled and he showed flashes of greatness. Imagine the outcry if Burrow swooped in and won the starting role over Haskins with everyone calling for him last season.
It's like when a company posts a job online, even through they know full and well an internal candidate is taking it. They still make it public, hold interviews, etc... they couldn't just fill it without letting people apply first.
Good luck Joe and whip up on some SEC!!!!!
I love stopping by and walking in the random open gate at the Shoe. I take my kids in to experience the greatness that is The Ohio State University!!!
I thought the same thing... then I thought about all the transfers of higher stars and thought, I wonder if they try and pick up some high upside 3* in order to ensure a depth chart. I feel like a guy who has offers from lower tiered schools and OSU will go big time for the off chance injuries happen and it's next man up. Maybe that's the wrong philosophy, but when you have nothing but 4 and 5*, only so many can play at once... eventually they will have family and friends in their ear saying, transfer so you can get on the field and show your talents. Maybe I'm wrong? I don't know... UFM is a mastermind behind all this... he's just pulling strings back there behind the curtain.
Thank you. That's what I was looking for!
I believe the staff new well in advance of Burrow's decision... that's why with Gunnell being the main focus, you all of the sudden saw an uptick in other offers and old names resurface. Most readers believed that was a sign that Gunnell was going elsewhere, whereas it was a sign of Burrow leaving.
I still think we go with 1 QB in 2019. Otherwise we sit right back where we are when 2020 comes around. If 2020 is a deeper pool, why make it less appealing for them by taking 2 this cycle? We also have a handful of ATH on the team who played QB in HS... worst case scenario you have one of them take some reps and understand the playbook for IF all other options are exhausted (unlikely).
I thought the same thing! HAHA
It could also be that Dixon was injured in January and can't do any football activities until late June. I would imagine the evaluators ding kids like this because you don't know how they will bounce back from injury. That like kid we had a few years ago and we pulled his scholarship because team docs said he couldn't play, he ended up going somewhere else and seems to be playing fine... his name escapes me at the moment.
+1 for the Dodgeball reference Woodshed.
We've had a top 5 pick the last 3 years... have we not? That trend will certainly continue next draft with Bosa.
