I’m all in on leaving the B1G. There is no way relations between Ohio State and the conference ever fully heal. Especially if it costs us the natty this year and future natty’s due to a weak conference (like 06, 07). We need to play competitive teams to be prepared for the elite around the country. I’m thinking there is going to be a major conference realignment with 4 super conferences by the end of the decade. Hopefully sooner.
You would have to experience it I guess...follow the $.
The Georgia “churches” got involved for that Pennsylvania Juco kid. Sooo much dirty stuff happens when a big time SEC program gets involved.
They haven’t given up hope yet. I love that. Don’t give up until it’s physically impossible to have a season. Keep fighting guys!!!
It’s looking less and less likely and the talent gap growing by an order of magnitude with each passing year. It’s almost to the point where they are 2 different levels of college football.
This definitely explains why so many players went out of their way to talk shit about TTUN in the conference calls today. Specifically Justin, Wyatt, and Coop. Damn let’s get this season going!!! I’m ready to run through a wall right now!!!
Lol! Best analogy yet!
Elite 11 and Trent Dilfer should be ashamed of themselves. What a joke. Basically had a predetermined winner. What’s the point for these other kids to even show up??? Caleb Williams was average at best, but because he had a good junior tape he wins a camp competition. Very disappointing for the kids that actually balled out. I would say the credibility of the E11 took a big hit.
So completely different criteria than last year. Obviously there was a predetermined winner. I heard the kid down the street from me in Gilbert, Az was an absolute stud. McCord also rocked it. But Caleb Williams is the mvp who had 2, average at best, days??? Hopefully the top kids stop showing up to this if they’re going to play those games.
Sooooo, in the hurry up you guys said he didn’t perform very well. The very next article says he wins the pro day competition. I’m very confused??? I have a feeling this is the more accurate report...I hope. Go Kyle!!!
Definitely enjoy these big ten recruiting updates. Like to know what we’re up against.
Word on the “streets” is we’re about to lose someone from the class. Wasn’t named of course, but very curious to know if anyone has any insight. Hope it’s all bs, but it’s coming from places that has been right a lot more often than not.
I have a feeling you’re not going to be hearing Wilcoxson’s name much after this recruiting cycle. Just a fart in the wind.
Can’t wait!!! Let’s gooooooo!!!
Zach said every time he went and recruited for OSU down south, it was always with 1 hand tied behind his back and referenced the boosters funneling money to recruits as to the reason why. Says OSU compliance is so strict they could never get away with it. Look, I lived in Alabama most of my life. Played high school ball there. Wasn’t recruited by any major programs, but had friends that were and some that went. This absolutely happens down there. Hopefully this wasn’t the case for JC. He seems like a smart, good kid. But, they absolutely play by a different set of rules down there.
Well, the way it works down south is: Booster funnels money through churches to the recruits. Been happening that way for years. Pretty much SOP down there. Zach Smith basically spilled the beans on that during his last podcast with bill Greene and Kirk Barton. Both Bill and Kirk laughed and stayed quiet as they’re both still in the business.
This one was a weird one. On Birm’s podcast, you could see he was clearly frustrated with this one, which tells me something bizarre happened. The only other time I saw him like that was last summer during the Bijan and Knighton debacle. Still time to go get him back, but obviously very unlikely. Good luck to the young man.
I cannot believe how big Dawand Jones is. He dwarfs the other lineman. He’s standing next to dudes that are 6’5 and 6’6. Can’t wait to see him on the field when his time comes.
Too late. That was horrible.
I did miss it. Definitely going to go watch that.
I’m not attacking the kid. I honestly don’t even know who committed to them. Doesn’t matter. Maybe I’m way off base, but could you imagine our coaching staff doing this??
Right. My point.
Check the difference between our coach and theirs.
I keep staring at that poll and honestly cannot pick between them.
I know I shouldn’t be, but I’m concerned over the mental health of the coaches on that staff. It’s beyond bizarre. Or I guess this could be pure desperation. They are a mess. Oh well, back to watching the 5 stars line up to head to Columbus.
