If only coaches can see the portal how did that SloppyBaseballs dude get to see it? He/she looking at a coach’s Screen? That seems to imply privacy concerns.

Mr Jones, thank you! These are my favorite articles on this site. You definitely do your part to set 11W apart from the rest.
Well, i’m proud of my Bucks at 6-0!
I’ll be giving him a loud, standing ovation from my living room in austin. I also think he did wonderfully. Urban the man and father came out today. I continue to believe that the people who know him well got to see him today.
I don’t buy this “he should have just done this weeks ago” stuff. Each of his past situations were tough. I can imagine the stress of those situations. He explained the b1g day mistake well as well as the suspension announce day fatigue. I totally get it and he couldn’t exactly do press conferences while suspended or while Day was trying to do his job.
i hope he is Our coach forever (and Day decides to be a lifetime OC albeit incredibly well paid). ;). I look at Urban’s “body of work” at OSU and - it is excellent!
Now if Columbus can just find a replacement for Spielman’s morning radio sidekick, we’d be good to go! /s
Been hangin’ out around the stadium today. So far, looks like 4:1 buckeye fans to TCU fans. I assume that ratio will change once inside the stadium.
I have chosen to have zero ESPNs. It’s wonderful.
JL14 with the subtle interview for a future dubcast job!!
Headline: It would be a hoot to see the BALLETS submitted from some of these middle-aged voters. ;)
1. Awaiting full investigation ... not our place to jump ahead with partial info.
2. See #1
why is the dubcast spending so much time guessing and taking positions ahead of time? I just wish I could hear a talking head say “I will reserve judgement. Let’s talk about those cool players prepping for the season!”
I am fine with no coaches interviews for awhile. I can understand why reporters think that is a mistake, but after all of the talking heads blindly roasting Urban, i’m perfectly fine with it.
Thx OSU for opening practice though.
Intentionally incomplete and one-sided = misleading.
lazy reporting = lazy reporting.
Especially when you tell him your name is Doug and then later he offhand refers to you as Dan.
Regarding top of the pyramid ... how does our “football factory” rep help or hurt us? I know how it helps our recruiting and I understand that the national champions had a ton of super Sophs on it, but that is hard to do every year. With us putting so many players to the next level (good for the young men to get paid early), it sometimes feels like we are often one of the younger teams out there in terms of team-wide starting experience. While we can win most games with younger more talented guys, I wonder how that helps or hurts against other top schools that keep experienced players home longer. This is just gut feel, though. Has anyone actually studied the team-wide average playing experience “age” of the top teams out there?
Mine: Charles White. Why? 17-16.
Well, on the good news for those that could not see the game ... I was a great game to watch after It was obvious that Baldwin was going to be OK. Allen went up 21-0 in the 1st quarter. LT gradually came back and led early in the 2nd half and into the 4Q, but finally fell 35-33. It was fun watching Garrett Wilson make some amazing plays; Wilson, playing cornerback, going up against Theo Wease; and Grant Tsdale getting some late key runs.
Anyone else struggling with the Math above?
"This is what I think about stress: If there’s something that is out of my control, I don’t really stress about it”
How cool would it be if more OSU fans could apply this life lesson to, say, the recruiting fora. ;)
So so lucky to have coach Johnson in our corner.
His mom claims a miniscus strain.
UPDATE: Lake Travis on to the state championship versus Allen next week. 28-14 over Allen. Hoping Baldwin’s knee injury not too bad.
Baldwin injured right knee with 9:29 left in 4q. very next play, Garret Wilson throws TD pass to backup QB/receiver. LT 28 Katy 14. Bizarre game in the cold pouring rain.
Well, on the good news front. At halftime, Lake Travis leads Katy 21-7. Baldwin is something like 17 of 24. Katy defense has been amazing this year too (something like 6 points per game in reg season and 8 points per game 8 in the playoffs so far). Katy has only been giving up something like 100+ passing yards per game.
PS: Most impressive so far has been Garrett Wilson ... 1 TD rushing, 1 receiving.
Even more odd, Allen is currently leading another Austin team, Cedar Ridge (in Baylor’s Waco stadium). If both, Allen and LT win, next week’s state championship will be Baldwin and Wilson versus Tisdale and Wease. All recruited by the Bucks.
Yep, agree. Last year, he backed up Charlie Brewer - whose family is Texas QB royalty (3rd generation Texas HS QBs with dad and grandad both QBing for UT). All Charlie did last year was set a national high school record for single season completion percentage (77.4%).
With his first starting opportunity, Baldwin led Lake Travis to the Texas State 7on7 Div 1 championship this past summer. Now he’s making a run in the HS FB championships. Not a lot of time to get noticed but he’s making the most of it.
