The intriguing battle to me is the safety position. Fuller or Smith. The latter has to be the sentimental favorite but we know the best will play. I'm kind of surprised that it's just assumed Webb is the other starter.

Where I work... yes. Direct quote: "She fucked up (referring to texts) and she knows that but it doesn't change the fact that he beat the shit out of her."

Anyone who has talked to her believes her. Columbus City Attorney's Office. NFL Investigators. Her fuck ups created reasonable doubt but she must come across as credible to the people who have taken the time to listen. And I trust this person not to say these things lightly. Now you can choose to dismiss this as second-hand information and that's fine. I'm just saying... she's convinced a lot of people she's telling the truth, in spite of everything that appears to damage her credibility. Either she's an exceptional actress or Zeke beat up his girlfriend. The latter, I understand, is difficult to accept. And she's given plenty of reason for people not to accept it. Doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Ok. So I talked to someone today who knows Tiffany Thompson. I trust this person. Based on those discussions, all I'll say is that she screwed up attempting to exaggerate what happened... but Zeke beat this girl up. I believe that. I could be wrong and it's important to recognize that as well.

Comment 17 Aug 2017

I can understand believing either way. But I see some either trashing the accuser or trashing Zeke as if they "know." And it just seems to me, based upon the available evidence, that there are far too many unknowns to justify such strong opinions. It's ok to say "I don't know." In some circumstances, "I don't know" is really the best response. You don't always have to have a "hot take." Especially on matters such as this where it is incredibly unclear.

Comment 17 Aug 2017

The media is there because the program is incredibly newsworthy. The program is incredibly newsworthy because Saban has done a great job building a mini-dynasty. Saban gets paid handsomely for having accomplished that goal. Part of his job is to deal with the public pressure and media coverage that comes along with that success. I just don't understand being rude to people who are just trying to do a job the public wants them to do. It's not like Saban has a rough life.

I remember Jerry Francis as a young kid. Loved watching those teams play. It's disappointing that his son doesn't have the same appreciation for his father's legacy. 

I wish no ill will towards the young man. It's his talent, not ours. But he's not a Buckeye and I have no desire to root for his success.

Comment 19 Jul 2017

If he's healthy and the team goes undefeated, he certainly has a chance. But it's always wide open to start the season.

Comment 10 Jul 2017

I think the updated 247 rankings overvalue camp performance vs. tape, which is the same problem that tends to plague certain NFL teams who place a lot of value on the combine.

Even the massive elevation of Ruckert to #11 is an overvaluation. He's a special talent, to be sure; but he's still just 16 and has a lot of growing to do. He's going to be better without pads than in pads.

Comment 21 Jun 2017

I think it upsets people more when good citizens like Lebron James and Tyreke Smith talk about social/racial issues than if they just carried themselves like Johnny Manziel.

Comment 15 Jun 2017

I think you gotta put to Woodbey at this point: He's either in or out. We have too many guys on the DB board to be holding spots for players who aren't really committed.

And I don't mean that as a knock on Woodbey. He's perfectly free to look around. I just think Ohio State might be better off moving on if he's looking around.

Comment 31 May 2017

What are the backup plans should Woodbey and Proctor bolt? Related: Where do we stand with Tyson Campbell and Houston Griffith?

Comment 31 May 2017

Jerome Baker will lead the team in interceptions.

The passing game will struggle... again. Campbell will lead the team in yards, but it will be a pedestrian number.

Burrell will start at RG.

Worley will lead the team in tackles.

Haubeil will be the kicker.

Comment 05 May 2017

Is Kamryn Babb the only receiver on the board right now and where do things stand with him?

What about Verdis Brown? We don't hear enough about these guys.
