Not sure if it’s new or old news but a news story just came across my Facebook feed that said emmitt smiths kid included the buckeyes in his top five
You have to have guys that will bare the weight and intensity of the game on their shoulders. These are the guys that will set the tone for the rest of the team. Usually it's the captains, but in years like this where there is a new regime in place you need guys all throughout the roster to step up and show that they can play with a chip on their shoulder and bring the heat.
Whole lotta fabric was used to make those suits. Big men looking way fancy.
Technically it is stereotyping, but those dudes are giant monsters that run fast and lift heavy and have a mean streak a mile long. Case in point: the Haka makes me want to piss myself every time I see it.
For Brookville it was Valley View, and they typically smacked us around pretty good.
Per punk's twitter, he's 100% not interested. I don't know what's true or not, but I think even if he didn't want to wrestle, he'd be amazing in the commentary booth with Jim Ross.
I think Potter and Miller both have a fair shot to not redshirt if I'm being honest.
Potter will have done himself a ton of favors by getting to campus early. If he's picked up on the game plan and shows he can deal with the physicality, he's going to be in the rotation.
MIller... if he hits the ground running and becomes a factor in the center competition... can you imagine a true freshman starting at center? Stranger things have happened.
I've always felt better about the Buckeyes when there is a Samoan dude or two on the squad. Those guys just have a combo of size/strength/athleticism that you don't see anywhere else. Just absolute freakish monsters.
That's for sure not the answer we wanted. C'mon Jalin, get it together, you've got all the talent in the world!
Solid analysis. I think the criteria alters from year to year, but this past year the consideration of Georgia vs. Ohio State boggled my mind, even with that 1 bad loss to Purdue, Georgia with 2 losses? GTFO here.
If the NCAA is looking for a scapegoat in the SEC to try and debunk some of that corruption and make it appear like "no one is above the law when it comes to the NCAA," then LSU is the perfect choice. They've got name recognition but they don't compete regularly with the likes of Bama/UGA. It will allow the SEC to still be a cash cow, but the NCAA can at least make it appear like they tried.
Grew up in Brookville, just outside of the Englewood area, saw Braxton Miller play in his senior year at Wayne against Northmont and it just wasn't fair to see him abuse that defense the way he did.
Andy Trick is a guy I've known for a few years, good guy, he used to be in really good indy-vibe/punk rock/garage style bands, but sold out and jumped into TDWP (can't blame him).
Chris Hero is an awesome wrestler, I used to be a color commentator for a local Indy wrestling fed here in Dayton, and he did some matches there, got to call those and meet him. Good dude.
I think in terms of the attention being paid to kids and their bodies, and the fact that people realize kids playing youth sports are still growing, the existence of long term damage from head injuries and investigation into that, all of that is a plus.
Anything that makes it so when the kids are finished with sports, at whatever level it might be, they're still healthy and can function is an A+ to me.
Parents just ruin everything, honestly. They make it less fun for coaches who are not making much, if anything, and that in turn makes it less fun for the kids.
This is easy, my two-year old last year! He became the biggest Urban Meyer and Chase Young fan there is, and would freak out anytime they showed UFM on the TV, and when CY got his sacks you'd think my kid got them.
Fun to see my dude taking interest in a passion of mine. He was really sad when I explained to him what it meant when Urban announced his retirement.
Certainly helps to be taller than everyone! Good on you, Greg!
Seriously, so stoked the coaching staff retained coach mick. Cannot overstate his value at this point
Everyone freaking out about not finishing the class this weekend should relax. These kids have to take it all in, go home, talk to mom and dad, fire up their go pro to make their video, then announce on twitter when they’ll release it. It’s a process.
Every time I hear Kurelic talk he sounds desperate to be the guy at the party with the most info to give out whether it’s credible or not
Give me those Ohio booms!!!
Joe burrow is going to do some very nice things this year I do believe
I’m hoping we don’t see a bunch of the same BS as last year at the safety position. Reliving a stretch of games where you’re fielding guys who aren’t ready and you have an all conference level player sitting on the sideline... no thanks
Michael Thomas should be the guy that resets the receiver market in the NFL. He’s been unstoppable
Chrisman is a straight up baller
Really want to see one of those highly touted backs end up in this group.
