Our receiver class is absurd but take a look at who Clemson is bringing in to play on their defensive line. Can't get the ball to the receivers if the QB is being pressured through the A gap by Bryan Bresee. Fortunately we know that offensive linemen are allowed to hold to their heart's content - i.e. Chase Young.

This is the correct answer. The current system will not allow Oregon to become the next Clemson due to geography. The allure of Phil Knight, the Oregon athletic facilities, the infinite number of uniform designs, and everything else has all been maxed out. If players are all of a sudden able to profit off of their likenesses, it opens the door to Phil Knight spreading around all of those Nike bucks. Lots of schools have big name donors but only Oregon can tell kids that they'll have the full weight of Nike products and it's marketing wing backing them up in National Campaigns. Sure Nike will do the same for a select few athletes at other schools around the country but being at Oregon all but assures that Nike will put it's resources behind you if you are good enough...25 5*s per recruiting class for Oregon would not surprise me.

ESPN is waiting to get their talking points from the NCAA and the NCAA is deciding whether or not this is the hill they choose to die on before rules are passed that allow players to monetarily benefit off of their likeness.

You absolutely DO NOT take a kid who was forced to sit out two State Championship games and, in all likelihood, punched his own coach. Cancer spreads my friend, and that kid is terminal.

In running back parlance running backs aren't short, they have low centers of gravity. Kudos to whoever game up with that grammatical mental gymnastics.

Wild Turkey 101 - Best value out there and readily available. Can't believe no ones mentioned this yet. 

Comment 09 Jan 2020

So now we have Saban, Leach, Kiffin, Orgeron, Malzahn, and Jimbo all in the same division...the stories are going to write themselves.

Ohio State's 2021 class currently stands at 203.4 points on the 247 composite. To put that in perspective: Minnesota, Northwestern, Michigan State, Indiana, Rutger, and Illinois's 2020 recruiting classes are all 198.7 or worse. Even Iowa's 2020 class is just barely better at 204.3. 

We also have 6 of the top 75 recruits in the 2021 class while the next closest program is Notre Dame with 3 in the top 75. Michigan has 1 recruit in the top 75. 

Crazy.

Well while Urban Meyer may be gone, the bagmen are just as active as ever and of course, as we all know, while Ohio State pays their players us noble Michigan men are above that sort of riff raff - MGoBlowYourself

Comment 08 Jan 2020

This class is going to fill up quickly. Kids on the bubble better recognize that Ryan Day is continuing the legacy Urban Meyer built and may even be enhancing it before their potential spot gets filled by another top 100 recruit. 

Comment 06 Jan 2020

Hamilton and Landers were damn good and I can't remember a game last season where we lamenting about how the middle of the line was gashed by the opposing running back. I hope Togiai and Vincent tear it up next season but let's not pretend that Hamilton and Landers more than held their own and were stalwart ambassadors of the program and the Ohio State Football brand. I'm especially going to miss Lander's cowboy hats.

I can't figure out why people are penciling Cooper in as a starting DE. He's never been that good. Meanwhile we have Harrison and Smith who haven't begun to touch their ceilings along with Friday, Potter, and Jean-Baptiste. Cooper's value may be more in his leadership than his talent. Not to say he can't contribute but I haven't seen much out of him to get too excited about his return.
