I think I saw that Bama’s draft-eligible players are not sitting out - including Jerry Jeudy. (Sorry, don’t remember where & too lazy this morning to look it up.) 
I’m sure Don Brown has a plan to cover him with one of scUM’s speedy DBs like Josh Mettelus, so that should work out well (more famous plans, “Captain Smith, we’re heading into an ice field...” Captain Smith: “The talent that built this ship is top notch... Full speed ahead!!”).

Ehhh. Let them enjoy this “win” over THE (the real THE). It’s probably as close as they’re going to get to sniffing one when it truly counts. They are still bitter about us stealing Tommy Togiai from their backyard.

... a crushing blow. 

Zack, Zack, Zack. 
Sure, losing Phillips is not great, but a truly “crushing blow” would be an injury to one of our first round DBs before the Fiesta Bowl; or if Fields re-aggravated his knee; or if JK got some of Clemson’s “shampoo” and was ineligible.

I’m honestly perplexed by the pearl clutching about this kid’s flip. Would it have been great to get him? Of course! But Riep was playing more than mop up duties, and actually started to look pretty decent once he got his feet under him vs TTUN. Plus, I believe he started that game since Wade was injured.

The 3 DBs we signed are studs & Martinez is still in the mix, so I believe we’ll be in pretty good shape (even if Martinez doesn’t sign with the good guys). 
We are one of the top programs in the nation (if not THE top) for developing NFL caliber DBs. It’s been true since I was a kid watching Jack Tatum. 
Ryan Day will hit a home run with the next DB Coach hire, and we’ll be fine (BTW, I’m not sure it’s going to be Coombs; I think he goes for someone like a Hafley - a “who’s he?” - that becomes a rock star).

Lock. This. Guy. Down. 

LJ has identified (it appears) his successor. Given the type of man he is, I don’t believe LJ retires until he is CONVINCED Anunike is ready to take up the mantle and become the next great DL coach at tOSU. 

The skunk weasels can’t even develop their 4* & 5* players; meanwhile, the Buckeyes are not ONLY doing a stellar job of developing their players, they are developing rock star coaches!!

A WWII vet, TTUN star running back, pretty decent coach and AD. I believe the consensus opinion of people who were associated with him was, integrity, humility, an honorable man.

As Hove said, “Respect”

Comment 09 Dec 2019

I don’t envy the coaching staff’s schedule this week. The good news is, there is a LOT of experience on this staff - NFL experience to boot.  

Two things on Josh Fryar receiving his AA Jersey: 1) The coaching staff seems to know what they’re doing. 2) Some of the comments from 4 July (his “BOOM” day) aren’t aging well at all.

Yes, BuckeyeBulldog, BHI are a racist cult. I had the unfortunate experience of working with a couple of them in Miami, circa 1982. The Jewish friends I had thought they were all whack jobs - potentially dangerous whack jobs! 
From the language used in this screed, I would bet the farm Larry, Jr. is part of this cult. It’s very sad, actually.

It was actually cringe-worthy watching Lee on the Game Day set Saturday in Waco. Herbie and Desmond had to help him out several times, like when he had about 6 teams qualifying for the CFP. 
I wonder if this isn’t his last year (though I’ve had that thought for about the last 3 years!). 

Yeah, I’ll watch Fox - they are a VAST improvement over ESPN. 

Comment 16 Nov 2019

Was very sad to see that happen to Tua - never want to see any kid get hurt. But my thought was, “THAT is all on you, Nick.”
