I took the question as your 2nd option as well.
the 1st option is essentially 'who is the biggest recruiting bust in OSU history'. aka 5-star dude that flamed out for whatever reason.
actually, no you can't separate the man from the artist. as it's the same person.
they're a quality team that Ohio State eventually wears down, out-talents and eventually defeats basically every single year.
I don't see how guys like Dorian Bell and Mike D'Andrea make it near these lists. maybe overrated recruits for one reason or another but they barely played in their time here so how can they be rated as players at all?
overrated to me means a player that generally is held in higher regard than the play on the field actually shows. maybe someone who won more national/conference awards than they arguably should have - especially in comparison to a Buckeye counterpart on different teams or different eras. Say a guy like James Laurinaitis in comparison to an AJ Hawk. JL has more national awards and was a 2 time B10 DPOY. but I think Hawk was the better LB and by a pretty significant margin. but maybe I'm off base there.
OSU looked at Baz up close twice and passed. have to trust your evals.
Ohio State is 9-1 vs Wisconsin since 2007 fwiw
I agree it will be tough for JT to see the 53. I can see Brees/Savage/Hill on the 53 and JT get a practice squad spot if he's impressing the Saints the way some are making it sound he may be (I'm skeptical).
and it's proven to be more difficult to spin that night into NFL paychecks for Lagow.
it wasn't much different than what other coaches have done for in season DUIs...but I would have preferred a stronger punishment for that incident. overall I don't have much of an issue with how Meyer has handled discipline (much better than when he was at UF) and the number of incidents OSU players have had as the program has transitioned from Tressel's guys to now all Meyer's guys.
no one ever does it alone. does that really need to be stated?
the team did go 6-6 (6-7 including the bowl game), had NCAA sanctions and had just gone through ugliness that involved the head coach having to be fired and a season with an interim coach. OSU hasn't gone 12-0 enough in its existence to either take it for granted or give proper credit to coach Meyer for overseeing it. That entire team is overlooked because it couldn't play for anything more. but it still won them all - and that's a hell of an accomplishment. It wasn't some outfit that was ready made to take off. far from it.
5:20 mark...as spencer circles haskins with the laser pointer 'but we have a playmaker here now' when discussing whether the ball would be checked down in another down and distance situation. 'where is my immediate opportunity? x on the boundary. I have a hole. I'm gonna take it. first down. let's go.'
this has all the potential of being the passing game the Bucks have needed IMO.
Yup. They have Harrison #17 in the nation. bold.
Wilson moved up 49 spots to #39
Miller slid down 5 to #61
Nester slid down 9 to #126
Stover slid down 7 to #139
James slid down 13 to #171
Hickman slid down 17 to #189
all others are not in their top 250 apparently
I clicked on this thread to make this exact comment. We went to the national championship game and sat in the 200 level. great seats. But the upper tank - looked like it was in a different zip code. Don't go upper deck.
it's june. there's no reaches in june.
JR basically can't stay in Cleveland after the game 1 debacle.
