Not sure who the hell would downvote this... it's true. The level of competition in the NE in general is not as strong as many other parts of the country... it's not exactly fertile recruiting ground. Let them "own" it, we'll just keep pulling away.
Atonement... didn't see that one coming.
I think the NCAA would have to do something "special" for that draft, like allow players to declare for the draft, but also allow them to come back to school if they aren't drafted.
I just hope we can keep Hartline at OSU. He has offensive coordinator written all over him right now, and likely head coaching jobs aren't far off.. maybe a year or two. He seems like an all around fantastic guy, glad he's a Buckeye!
One of the 11W writers (Ramzy maybe?) put together an article about the 2018 defense... it was HISTORICALLY bad. I think the gist of it was that had the D been even average, that team would have been playoff bound. Urban is an all time great, but nepotism was certainly his most glaring weakness, and it cost him dearly.
Sheesh my man... no pressure there!
Even after Wilcoxson signs with a school, I would imagine that coach is going to have one eye on him, and the other on the transfer portal.
My sleeper pick is Mookie Cooper seizing the slot role.. He seems built for all the underneath routes, and he's lethal with the ball in his hands. Wide receiver is not a concern of mine at all, having a full season is though.
No kidding. Olave broke out as a true freshman, albeit later in the season. Garret Wilson broke out as a true freshman, almost right away. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if 2 or 3 of the incoming freshmen break out... and that's not considering the other talented receivers already on the roster. WR is a stupid deep position right now.
Upvote.. I've read many of your posts, you seem like a totally reasonable UM fan I'd be happy to grab a beer with. You have to remember, fan bases are always a mix of: Very reasonable, reasonable(ish), slightly homerish, to "no base in reality whatsoever". I peruse MGO occasionally, and find at least half of the comments falling in the latter category. The echo chamber of "cooler pooper's that cheat, have online classes, bag men paying recruits, etc." is LOUD... and quite frankly as Buckeye fans, that's all many of us hear. The self righteousness of many UM fans is frankly disgusting, and laughable all at the same time. UM recruits many of the same players OSU does, we just land a much higher percentage of them. For some reason though, UM fans rationalize that by saying we cheat, whereas most everyone else in the country would say (including every athlete being recruited right now), when was the last time UM was relevant?
TL/DR: As long as UM fans maintain their general state of arrogance, we'll laugh at you... and hate you. Hate elicits emotion.. hence the comments.
He meant "Coach Hartline", right?
Tiger King is beyond entertaining... It's about a gun-toting, polygamist, mullet-wearing, homosexual big-cat owner's life and feud with a another big-cat owner who has their own shady past. If it were fiction, people would laugh it off as completely unbelievable... and yet it's all real. Must. Watch.
My only regret is that I binged it too quickly.
Was going to post on this... how can drop a teaser like that and not include a link?!??!?
The last OSU jersey I purchased was #2.. for Malcolm Jenkins. With that said... letting go of a 25 year old stud safety for a 32 year old safety who's been in the league 10+ years? I'm not going to criticize a Buckeye for Buckeye player exchange, it just doesn't seem terribly logical. But... those guys get paid to make those decisions, not me. Wish them both success!
Excited to read this article, but the video clips aren't loading for me :(
I'll try back in a bit I guess.
Or Justin Fields. Click on the chart itself, Fields is No.1, with Fleming at No.2.
Very interesting, I have the exact opposite problem at my Kroger. Almost all dry goods and non-perishables are wiped out, but produce and fresh meat remain fairly well stocked. I did fill up my pantry last Wednesday morning (the news was really beginning to turn dire then, so I hustled to the store), but I'm eating as well now as I ever have. Fresh meals almost every meal, as I don't want to break into the pantry stash.
Amazon shut those guys down, and when the general public caught on, they started catching A LOT of flack. They ended up donating it all to a church I believe, trying to save face. They're also being investigated for price gouging, and will likely face some form of criminal prosecution.
Score one for Karma.
That one is over my head, too. Wish he would provide some clarification..
I’m sure there is a board with 1, 2, and 3.. but I have to imagine that any one of those backs is an IMMEDIATE take... so probably the first two to commit are in.
I’d prefer the power 5 champs, and then 3 at large bids. Let the committee decide those. Take 2015.. I’m pretty sure in an eight team playoff, the committee decides defending national champ, one loss (to eventual B1G Champ MSU) OSU should probably be in the playoff.
Another smart move by the NCAA (I can't believe I just said that). Nothing like a global pandemic to get the NCAA to act like the organization they should have been all along.
With the swiftness they're making decisions this week, we need to propose an 8 team CFP, maybe they'll choose to do the right thing with that too.
The amazing part is it didn't take them 6 months and hundreds of hours of investigation and interviews to do it. A Friday the 13th miracle.
The real losers here are all the men that scheduled vasectomies next week thinking they'd have nonstop basketball to watch. Ouch.
