5 star. 

"U.S. Army All-American and 5-star quarterback (Scout) Tate Martell was named national player of the year by three organizations as a senior: Gatorade, MaxPreps, and USA Today named him its American Family Insurance all-USA offensive player of the year … "

"The 5-foot-10, 197-pound Thurman is considered the 11th-best player in the state and the No. 184 running back overall in the Class of 2018, as he rushed for 998 yards and five touchdowns for the Fighting Crusaders last season. "


111 - as in One-hundred and 11th player in Ohio....not #11. If he was 11 - he'd have offers from ever team almost north

of the Mason-Dixon line.

Columbus has been the fastest growing city in the Midwest since the late 1970s, once

the population growths of the other cities began their declines

in the late 1960s/early 1970s.

In 1980, Columbus was the 19th largest city 

in the nation and the talk was that by 2000 it would be Top 15...which it is.

Much of its growth has been the annexation of surrounding villages and townships

and unincorporated areas. 

Disappointingly, however, is that Columbus was the #34 radio market in the early 1980s, but,

due to the growth of other markets and the "creation" of new markets outside of major metropolitan

areas near New York and such, Columbus actually has fallen to #37 despite the obvious growth.

Still #15 as of 2016:
(Soon to pass San Francisco)

The new coach covered this at his hiring. 

There has been ZERO hope; desire or expectation Lyle would be allowed to return.

This is not a story.

This story makes as much sense as saying that Barrett and Cardale Jones

are fighting it out to see who will start at QB. Lyle is as gone as CJ.

Yikes. (Maybe I'm just having a bad day :-)

This kid is suffering from depression...his "weight" issue

is only a symptom of his mental struggles. (From what I've read)

Really...his eating/weight should not be what we're discussing because....

I was 5-10 - 258 - in 7th grade - in 1972. (LOL)

My Dad used to say "everything is relative".

What is a perceived problem for one person, isn't for another.

I'm 56 now. I recently went to the doctor for my yearly check-up.

Let's just say that I weigh north of 300 pounds (way north) and have for 40 years.

My blood pressure is perfect. My cholesterol is perfect.

I have no issues with diabetes or, really, anything.

I eat less than just about anyone I have ever known.

I can walk up to 10 miles a day.

I'm just one really large person and have always been this way.

My doctor has ZERO concern about by weight because

I am healthy in all other ways - including my heart.

When I got into the adult world where employers only cared about results-

not my waist size - the "pressure" to be thin went away. I haven't been

called a "name" or felt compelled to be "thin" for decades. I'm happy and healthy

despite my size...and successful in my line of work.

In the world of football - 258 is midland. That's why 

Joey is dealing with "mental" issues - not weight issues.

“There is light at the end of the tunnel. It is just a very long tunnel.”

The above quote is Joey's. Here's the bottom-line: Joey may very well

"get well" - and STILL weigh 258, or, even, 308. His issue is

how he "sees" himself and he's beating himself up. 

Joey - you're PERFECT just the way you are because God doesn't make junk.

Here's to your happiness - through self-acceptance.

Kyle Young is listed at 6-8?

That's two inches taller than his senior/prospect profile.

OSU doesn't usually inflate heights for the BB team - as everyone else is listed as they are.

Has Young gone through a late growth spurt? (I grew two inches after high school)

Wesson is listed at 6-9, same as his high school profile.

I like the idea of Young being a potential Wisconesque kind

of player who can play inside and out.

Anyone seen Young play this past Spring?
