Crazy. He got a new deal and out of Pittsburgh when he had 3 years left on his contract and no leverage other than being such a PITA that the Steelers would practically give him away. Can't remember anything like it in the NFL.

Even with Tressel's approach there are going to be more D1 caliber HS players from Ohio than we can take each year. They will play somewhere, better at UK than up north for example.

I understand the negative reactions to this but if I was a first round pick, especially one who was there in person when Jaylon Smith blew his knee out in the Fiesta bowl that's a hell of a hard decision to make. I'm not going to think anything less of Denzel Ward for sitting out and I wish him nothing the best at the next level.

I expect some hot debates on the starting QB the first time whoever wins the job throws a pick or even misses a throw.

Did you feel the same way about Schiano last year after the way we reloaded in the secondary and had two guys who had only started for 1 season get drafted at 11 and 16 in the first round along with Conley going 24? We've been losing a lot of guys early to the NFL, some of them with 2 years of eligibility left.

A lot of these 4 and 5 star QB's end up transferring from their original school. Heard on the radio it was upwards of 50% that transfer at least once during their college careers.

Hell yes. Granted I was in HS and hadn't developed a taste for beer... but Sprite that gets you drunk? Where do I sign up?!?

Comment 06 Feb 2017

LOL, yeah I'm with you there. What the hell are you going to do against 10 other guys? Not sure how I'd get into a 10 vs 1 fight but pretty sure there's not a damn thing I could do other than try not to die.

Long way to go considering NLOID just happened but I think Meyer has built a machine here. You're never going to get every kid you want and star rankings don't mean everything but looking at the ratings of the classes coming in and the amount of talent going out to the NFL it's hard to argue we aren't recruiting as well as anyone in the country.

Don't really like him and don't really dislike him but I can't give you a good argument for anyone over Brady.

And, with the caveat that I think he's a complete dick 99% of the time and would cut his own father to sign somebody cheaper, IMHO Bill Belichick is the greatest coach the NFL and perhaps sports in general has ever seen considering what he's done, the amount of control he has over that entire organization and the era he's done it in with the cap, free agency etc... Managing the whole roster the way he does he's basically a GM and a head coach at the same time and he's been killing it in both regards for a decade and a half.
