Can't wait to see McCall out there in key situations.  I think this staff will know how to use him, and I hope he brings the maturity of an upperclassmen to this team.  He's experienced the highs and lows, and that experience can be very valuable to the team.  And I think the kid is electric with the ball and a little bit of space.

I hope he silences critics this year.  He's been inconsistent, but he's shown ability and feistiness that I appreciate.  There was a play , I think it was against Northwestern in the Big 10 championship game, where Arnette contested a pass and never gave up on the play, wrestling the ball and ripping it from the receiver's grasp.  I think they reviewed it and the officials ruled that the receiver maintained possession long enough, but that play shows the type of intensity Arnette can bring.  He needs to be mentally sharper, and it sounds like he fully understands that.  

Also, much respect for his dedication toward getting involved with the youth.  I'm sure he has a lot of wisdom for young people to learn from, and I'm glad he understands that responsibility.

Thanks, EvanstonBuckeye.  If the reports are accurate, it will speak a lot about Trey if he takes care of business and ends up suiting up for the Buckeyes.  I'd really appreciate ultimately reading a successful story about Trey that involves him being a contributor to our football team down the road.

I apologize for being late to the party here.  Sorry if it's already been covered, but could someone tell me how folks know that Trey is up to 350 pounds?  Source?  Thanks.

No mention of my guy, Super Demario.  Hoping he gets and stays healthy, because I just think the kid is electric in the open field, and has a knack for finding it.  McCall has had a few years to mature mentally, so the consistency needs to be there for him.  It's time for him to be a major contributor.

Dat Nguyen, Barry Saunders, Eric Bieniemy, Troy Polamalu, and as much as I hate to admit it, but I respect the heck out of this guy....Charles Woodson.  (I sort of feel sick right now.)

I really appreciate this:

 “Our target audience isn’t the freak athletes that’s no matter who they train with, no matter where they go are going to have a bright, athletic career. Our target audience is pretty much the kids that’s struggling maybe with bullying or struggling with confidence or struggling kids that are 12 years old but athletically and physically they are 9 years old,” Jones said.

Cardale and Lichter seem to be doing some great stuff.  Nice article.

The run game was not where it was supposed to be last year, and Coach Stud takes most of the heat.  However, if I recall correctly, it did get better as the season progressed, and I thought I read that the coaching staff later decided to call less read option type plays or something like that) which helped the lineman play faster.  Can anybody confirm that?  I guess I'm asking, how much was the o-lin(e's performance affected by playcalling last season?

I like Miyan Williams's highlight video.  He appears to be able to run through contact, but he's nimble and fast enough to break runs too.  I also like how Andrew uses the word "compliment" to describe Williams as an addition because Williams's running style looks like it would be a good change from Robinson's during a game.  Definitely need depth at running back, as these kids take some serious hits throughout the year.

Surprised to hear Jaheim Thomas's name still mentioned.  I kind of think that if Melton is in, he's basically taking Thomas's spot.  Looks like there may only be 7 Ohio kids in this class, but I appreciate how the staff is recruiting the state.
