With all due respect, I think you might be fantasizing those deep balls a bit. Of the three touchdowns Devin Smith had against Wisconsin, on two of them he won what many would call jump balls. The other touchdown was undoubtedly as gorgeous a deep ball I've ever seen, but the other two weren't all Cardale.

As for Braxton having NFL WRs for 3 years, I'm sorry but that's just plain wrong. As great as Devin Smith was for us, he was recently cut by the Jets I believe (albeit due to injuries more than anything). Philly Brown, Braxton's most reliable receiver during his time at the helm, had three decent years with Carolina where he broke the 30 reception mark once. Jeff Heuerman and Jake Stoneburner then were his third best targets during their respective years with Braxton. Braxton never got to play meaningful time with Jalin Marshall, Micheal Thomas, hell even his one year with Dontre Wilson was one where Urban would later call Dontre a "hood ornament" rather than an actual threat on offense.

If you love Braxton, then you would know how great he was and how much he could of flourished with the weapons on that 2014 team. He did not struggle in every facet of the passing game, and if it were not for his shoulder injuries it would be foolish to say he would be seeing less success than Cardale is right now as an NFL QB. Again, all due respect as a fellow fan, but I think you're way off the mark on this one.

The inconsistency is the most frustrating thing. The team is damn good enough to make a playoff run, hell as of today they still have the 2nd best road record in baseball behind only the Astros.

It's just frustrating to see the feast or famine ways of hitting with runners in scoring position, and beyond Kluber and Carrasco the rotation is a coin flip each night. Even Carrasco has been inexplicably way off his game some starts.

The talent is there, just gotta hope some guys can get hot. The good thing is there aren't any obvious flaws to the team. The roster is well built and Tito and the rest of the staff has the team solid on their fundamentals.

I will be interested to see if the front office brings in vet similar to Coco Crisp last year. Maybe a new locker room presence is the spark the team needs. Beyond going out to get a starter for the rotation, I'm not sure if there's even a need to go out a trade for a position player.

100k retweets would most likely be the most retweeted post in the world of football recruiting, and even for BuckeyeNation it's most likely impossible to reach. In the history of twitter, the most retweeted post was actually a picture of a kid asking for free chicken nuggets from the Wendys twitter account. He needed to get 18 million to get free nuggets for life, and he got about 3.5 million. Which is still a record. The internet is a fascinating place.

Didn't MSU have a WR play both ways just last year? I forget his name, but he was their top WR and I wanna say they had him play some DB because they were thin at the position. It wouldn't be out of the question given precedent.

EDIT: Looked it up and Tony Lippett played some DB in 2014 while also having 1200 receiving yards and 11 TDs.

Much more enlightening. I thought it was kinda weird that the recruit's response was to threaten to decommit. Who knows what really happened, but it in my opinion it sounds like a teenager trying to make a scene both at the time of the event and then later by decommitting and spreading the story on the internet.

To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if Simmons was ready to commit to OSU based on how his recruitment sounded like it was playing out, but with our two commits who just signed we didn't have any scholarships for him. Maybe that caused Matta to tell him to wait until the next signing period in case we have someone transfer out or leave for the NBA early. That might be why Simmons pushed his timeline back.

This is a very pro-OSU mindset, but who knows with recruiting lol.

Not sure if it warrants going for two, but this seems to be the justification.

Comment 07 Oct 2015

My biggest hope for this year is that the new big guys will at least be competent. Yes we lost probably the best player in college basketball, but I hope/think that the combo of Thompson and Giddens, and maybe a little of Bell, will be a large upgrade from Amir and Trey. Having a post defense and some scoring would be a huge boost.

Comment 30 Sep 2015

It sounded like it mattered to us when it was Terrell Hall. Sure Hall ended up decommitting instead of having his scholly pulled, but I'm pretty confident that Cupp would have eventually flipped to us even if Dantonio didn't pull his scholly.

Comment 05 Sep 2015

Devin Smith was a second round NFL draft pick almost solely because of his ability to be a "deep ball threat." Not often would you see him making intermediate catches, but he was almost always the guy making the 30+ yard catches. Being able to catch deep balls definitely is a talent.

Comment 06 Jul 2015

2017's defensive backfield situation doesn't seem any more clear than 2016's. With Shaun Wade and Marcus Williamson already committed, Isaiah Pryor potentially committing soon, Richard LeCounte's multiple visits since last year, and Lamont Wade being high on us I'm wondering how many we could take. Obviously these are all guys you have a very hard time saying no to.
