I agree, dk. And don't think that Shelley won't have something to say about it as well. He's financially secure, still working with tOSU at a cushy gig, and having fun doing the TV analyst thing. All while spending quality time with the fam. From a health standpoint, it's not worth it to jump back in the trenches with these dumpster fires to try to rebuild -- it would take more time and effort than he would have to give. I truly believe all these rumors about Urb with these programs is just wishful thinking by their fanbases, and clickbait for the media.
Good luck to him. Can't blame him for wanting playing time. He'll have his degree, so he'll be able to go where his chances will be better to see the field than here. given the number of guys ahead of him.
Always a Buckeye. Best of luck Isaiah!
Nothing makes recruiting go better than winning on the field. Gotta love it!
Will be interesting to see where young Mr. Stellato is on the "star chart" by season's end. Sure do hope to see him in Scarlet and Gray!
Kudos to Buckeye Nation for rocking the Shoe this weekend. I could feel it just watching on TV, so I can only imagine what these young men felt being there. "Electric" would be an understatement.
Up to you now, young fellows. Time to step up and be a Buckeye!
It was so fun watching the game last night. Crowd was really hopping. Would have loved to have been there live.
So happy for Luke Farrell. Sure do hope they get TE's more involved from here on out.
If the 'croots that were at the game aren't itching to be a part of this, they must be clinically dead. What an awesome atmosphere.
On to Northwestern! GO BUCKS!!
I agree. If Stanley hadn't gifted TTUN with all those INT's, Iowa would have thumped them. Better game management by Ferentz would have helped as well.
"Speed in space", indeed. Can't wait until TTUN plays a team with a better offense than Iowa's. They'll get their asses handed to them.
Holy shit. If this doesn't get you fired up, you're just clinically dead.
Come on, Saturday night! GO BUCKS!!
Luginbill is just another dime-a-dozen blowhard that thinks he knows stuff. EsecPN is chock full of these douchebags.
Until I hear "stuff" about Jack Miller from a real reliable non-biased source, Luginbill's garbage is just another fart in the wind....
Couldn't agree more. The only reason they are at this spot is to set them up as a "quality win" once they get their asses kicked by a conference foe. I watched that game against Kentucky, and the only reason Florida won is Kentucky shot itself in the foot. That was a gift win.
I'm happy as hell for MJ, and really hoping Billy heals and gets his groove back. Love to see Buckeyes do well in the league.
That being said, having grown up in the area, I am firmly convinced that Cincy pro sports team suck donkey balls. Cheap ass owners and clueless front office people. The only time it's been good was baseball in the mid 70's (and a couple of years around the early 90's) and football had a couple of years in the Kenny Anderson / Boomer Esaison time frame. As much as I like to see Buckeyes get to "stay home" in Ohio to play pro ball, it's almost like these teams are where careers go to die. I'm afraid the Bungles will misuse Billy to the point where he gets hurt and doesn't ever really get well. Maybe he'll get the chance to get with a team that will let him heal and then help him maximize the shit ton of talent he has naturally. I've just become less and less of a Cincy sports fan over the years.
God, I can't wait for next Saturday! Go Bucks!!
It's always worth celebrating when our student athletes get that degree. Even when the days of competition are over, life goes on, and that degree will serve them in many positive ways.
Buckeyes for Life!
You had to see this coming with the way June has played out. This kid may have felt like we didn't want him when things started getting cozy with Robinson and Knighton. These talented kids can be a bit fickle that way. Now we stand to get none of them.
Personally I'm not worried. We have several guys already here who are plenty talented and itching to get on the field. Sure it sucks to get zero of the three, but I think if the season goes really well we'll be able to cash in with the 2021 class. All is not lost.
Hope these kids find what they're looking for. In the meantime, GO BUCKS!
You can bet the damned farm that if the $EC breaks the rule, the NCAA won't do jack about it. Anyone else (particularly tOSU) will be hung up by the 'nads.
You honestly think they'll make 'Bama cut the BS they pull with recruiting? Good luck with that.
I agree that Iowa isn't exactly a world-beater, but they do tend to get their TE's into the league. I think young Mr. Lachey made a wise choice to go to a team that utilizes the TE heavily, and will spend the time to develop him. He'll play against strong competition in the B1G and if he develops appropriately, who's to say he won't be one of the next Iowa TE's that goes pro?
Best of luck to him!
Would love to see the Crowdus kid end up as a Buckeye. With Coach Hartline teaching him skills and Coach Mick working on the physical development, he'd be a sweet addition to Zone 6. Besides, Lexington to Columbus is an easy drive -- I-75 to I-71 and there you go.
Fifteen years ago today the trajectory of the program changed forever.
I for one was thrilled when Thad was hired, because I knew deep down he'd get Buckeye basketball back on track. And he certainly did, even if it did tail off just a bit at the end.
Yeah, that was a pretty good hire.
Couldn't have said it better.
Thanks for everything, Thad.
Welcome to Buckeye Nation, Josh!
