I haven't read every comment here so sorry if it was already stated, but isn't Gene Smith a Notre Dame guy? Is he really going to leave a top level job like OSU to go to a school he was bred to hate and has that much disarray? It sure seems like he makes a good amount of $$$ on OSU secondary sports winning titles that he would be giving up.
I'm with you. My biggest concern right now is kickoffs. Can't keep kicking the ball to the 17. Other than that, you have to go back a few years to find the team looking this good this early overall.
Penix is a different kind of QB than we've seen with IU in the past. Reminds me of a young Pat White for WVU back in the day. I think this matchup works better for OSU than in years past and I expect a relatively lopsided game. 45-10 Good Guys
Looking for 2 for Maryland game. Taking my 8 year old to his first game at the Shoe. He's got a bad taste in his mouth after we went to the game at Purdue last year...
Haskins high school film is the best high school QB film I've ever seen, as far as throwing goes. Excited to see how Miller and Stroud's senior year film looks over the course of the season.
I'm getting the vibe these two are like when we were recruiting Jalin Marshall and Dontre Wilson in the same class. Cam and Mookie are different players than JM and DW but both could play that slot/HB position and both are too good to pass up.
I could definitely see Christman and then maybe Styles and/or Kirk jump in next weekend. Class of 21 with those 3.
there's always gotta be someone that finishes #2...
One reason OSU won a title is cause they had a group this good running down the field on special teams and playing as second teamers. Need that same depth for the future.
If Haskins is there, he's gotta be the pick. I don't think Haskins, Devin White, or Oliver will be around that late. I'd pass on Bush.
I'm just saying I've seen the kid play a bunch of times since his junior year of HS. And he's not a talent that I think OSU should tied up a scholarship for 2 years for. There's a reason he went to Butler from the start and averaged less than 20 mpg on a bad Butler team.
Don’t think he’s an Ohio State level player
The guy had two recruiting classes and couldn't sign a scholarship QB better than a frosh walk-on. Who's fault is that?
Fleck is all show. He took over a bowl team and in his first year, didn't make a bowl. Then in his second year, had to upset Purdue to get bowl eligible. He's out here rowing a boat while OSU, ttun, MSU, PSU, Wisky are flying jet planes.
Spooner, question for you or anyone else who has actually watched these kids' film. How would you rank the DBs with OSU interest?
Or should someone else be stuck in there? Obviously I could look at 247 rankings but am more interested in fellow 11W opinions.
Nester is a need and want because of depth at the position. We've never gotten upset about losing a recruit to VaTech and I don't think there's any reason to start now.
My father-in-law reffed one of Jones' basketball games recently and told me the kid could play anywhere cause he was so big. He was referring to football. When I told him I thought he had basketball offers too he said he wouldn't be able to play bball anywhere. So he definitely isn't going to IU and playing both sports
You have to be a full time student. Undergrads on semesters that means 12 credit hours in most cases. A full time grad student is much different and could be only 3-4 credit hours which could equate to one class a week.
I thought he would be here no more than 8 years but win 2 NCs. I did not expect owning TTUN like he did tho. Very grateful for that.
Bengals are more likely to trade up to 1 and take Kyler Murray than Haskins being available at 11 and the Bengals actually taking him.
Black jerseys with the normal Gray helmet and pants
What does Stud's wife look like? That should tell you everything you need to know about whether he can recruit or not.
that 27 man recruiting class is gonna have some kids without scholarships
Colts offensive line was GARBAGE most of the years he was there. Probably not all his fault but still. Hard pass.
