Was surprised he didn't even get a warning after going backwards the entire match. As for the final score - the Romero pin is irrelevant. Pletcher wins, OSU wins. On the flip side, if the 165-184 guys don't all give up bonus points OSU wins. I also think the weight cut is really hurting Decatur, much like it hurt Pletcher in the past. He is so much bigger than his comp but he looks like a completely different wrestler than his high school tape where he never stopped moving and I don't know if I ever saw his head on the mat.

There brothers Jordan have been pretty damn good. 7 All America Finishes, multiple B1G podiums, lots of wins. Rocky looks to be on the same path. No need to be a jack ass. This dual came down to either Pletcher winning, or the 165-184 guys not giving up bonus points. Next year is going to be interesting for sure with Hoffman, Echemedia, maybe the younger Decatur brother stepping in at 125?

Tyreke smith, Tyler Friday and Harrison were all top 100 type recruits, top 10 positionally. Taron Vincent and Tommy Toigai, and Cage on the interior were all top 5. Harrison last year top 2, Sawyer top 2, and still going after a few big fish. Missing one or two players in the top 2-3 is not the end of the world when you are getting the rest. Sheesh.

Exactly my thoughts.  This is also spot on for a good % of OSU fans.  Its going to be a loooong off season if they dont let it go.

Ranking is going down a bit (depending on potential new defensive coach salary) since Hafley (950K) and Yuricich (950K) are both gone and Yuricich being replaced with Dennis, who will probably NOT command anywhere near 1MM.  Stud, Washington and Hartline all deserve big time bumps in pay based on 2019 (Hartline especially).   Barnes and Alford could as well. 

I like the way Day has constructed his staff - just a great mix of veteran coaches who are probably in it for the long haul (Wilson, Mattison, Alford, Stud) and a bunch of young, hungry and talented assistant/positional coaches.  Stability at the top is huge, and the younger coaches seem to be thriving.  Very nature of this model is going to lead to defections for "better" jobs, money be damned.

There were easily 10 plays in the first 1.5 quarters (prior to the Wade ejection) that this team has made routinely this year that for whatever reason they just didn't. The big three are the Dobbins screen drop, the Mack play, and Fields missing a wide open Dobbins (who still almost made a miraculous play). All three are tds every other game this year. Even 2 of those being converted and the good guys are up 24-0 and this game is basically over before Wade even gets close to Lawrence. No ref involvement /conspiracy needed - officiating this entire bowl season and a good chunk of the regular season has been flat out terrible - but this loss is 100% on the good guys picking a terrible time to get cold.

I have family in Ft Collins. Absolutely gorgeous quintessential Rocky Mountain town. Don't know about "upscale" but minutes from some amazing outdoor activities including skiing, climbing, hiking, and swimming. Town vs town is a no brainer to me, but we are talking tOSU vs CSU. Plus grandma and grandpa Meyer are in Columbus ;)

The shit part about it was up until Olave and Brown collided, it was executed perfectly.  Olave's dive seemed to nudge Brown back toward the punter and Olave just off enough to not get his hand on the ball.  Sucks man, but the plays that cost us the game were the 4 play, 94 yard drive to give Clemson the lead.  Not sure WTF the defense was doing on that drive after playing balls out all game.  Not one heavy rush, no lining up Browning over Chase, no press coverage - bad time to go 100% straight vanilla defense.  Despite all that, props to Fields and co for coming right back and having a legit shot to win it and to Olave for owning his mistake.  Clemson is the real deal, but we still owned that game in spite of the shitty field and officiating and a litany of mistakes.  Only place that we lost is the only place it matters and that is the scoreboard.  Onward.

Not sure how many sacks he gave up, but he was 3rd team acc.
Comment 21 Dec 2019
Tough list for the OL. Hard to believe that Wyatt Davis is not on the list. Would love to see a list of the top 50 non QB/WR/RB.
Comment 19 Dec 2019

Thats pretty much what LJ always does with Frosh, it was in articles on here and elsewhere. Let them get reps, but in big games dont expect to see them much barring an emergency.  

Comment 18 Dec 2019

Isnt this LSU's all world WR class?  He would be the highest rated of them, correct?  That was the contest - OSU WR vs LSU WR cruits for most insane ratings from the star handerouters?  

Whoa.  To Marylan?  lolololololol

Comment 17 Dec 2019

Browns are in no way, shape or form strapped for cap space now.  they have 51M (projected) cap room for 2020, and the only contracts for significant contributors that are due are Hunt, Higgins, Scho, Randall, Robinson and Burnette.  Every one else is a replacement level b/u player.  Probably wont be paying Robinson even close to what he is making now if they sign him, LB's and Safeties (even pro bowlers) are cheap.  Njoku and Garrett will need new contracts (or not in Njoku's case), then Ward and Baker.  They have plenty of space, above the league average.  https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/cleveland-browns/yearly/cap/ 

Comment 16 Dec 2019

Brownings future is definitely an edge rusher, maybe his best fit would be OLB in a 3-4.  I do think he has played on edge a couple times, and he does have some ability getting to the QB.  I am looking forward to the next gen LB's to get some run.  Pope and Gant especially have looked good in limited time, Mitchell has had mixed results.  

Comment 16 Dec 2019

I mean, it would make sense why Brendon White has been dealing with the personal issues and is leaving the university now; he either believes his father is innocent and is pissed off at the injustice or he doesn't believe his father and is possibly embarrassed.  

Comment 13 Dec 2019

And the ones coming in are fricking beasts.  the top 3 will possibly be contributing as true freshman.  

Comment 13 Dec 2019

I mean, they have brought it every game.  Proctor passed him at Safety (and Hooker as well), and honestly the Young LB's (Gant, Mitchell, Pope) need more run and are more prototypical lb's than White.  He doesnt really fit the defense now.  Nothing against him, just like Pryor he is going to shine when he lands in the right system.  

If the defense shits the bed against Clem's son, it wont be because they played Werner over White.  

Comment 13 Dec 2019
More recent comparisons - Wade reminds me of Tyron mathieu -the dope and injuries, and okudah reminds me of Patrick Peterson. Okudah has that size/speed/skillset to be the top cb in the NFL. Wade has the top level skills to literally play any position in the secondary and cover any receiver. That is a ridiculous weapon to have back there.
Comment 11 Dec 2019

I know he is a different animal, but when they used Bosa's at DT as a changeup / rushman package it always caused chaos even when it didnt result in a sack.  Also, Hamilton and Cornell went crazy in the TTUN/WISC game while Young was being hel..double teamed.  Harrison and Browning also got in the backfield often on blitzes due to the Young focus.  Pass rush will be just fine, so long as the secondary is healthy - there seems to be a surprisingly big drop off after Wade, Okudah, and Arnette.  Proctor is going to be a beast but Fuller is the General out there. 

That being said, I dont think Day will wait to pull Borland for Browning (if healthy) and possibly Werner for Hilliard or a "bullet" if needed.  The adjustments they have made at the half all season are ridiculous.  Will be one hell of a chess match either way.  

Comment 07 Dec 2019
I really hope Wade comes back. Monster. That hit on Taylor was nuts. You never see that dude get knocked on his ass like that.
