Gandhi had a statement that sums up my take on the situation "Be the change you want to see in the world". In this case-the world being 11W that means not speculating like a spoiled child and calling out those who do.
If the staff/ownership of 11W truly cares about the student athletes of tOSU as people, they should put your above post on the top of the masthead for the next couple of days. Kudos for bringing some common sense.
Exactly-opportunity at a brand name school=recruiting fun time..........................
I think he just wanted to eff w/ the heads of neurotic Buckeye fans..................
8-4? I don't see how Baldwin holding a clipboard in the Horseshoe would change that outlook.
WTF is that supposed to mean? Not something to lol about if you are a real fan. Oh well,life goes on, Chris Chugunov just might be the man after all-hopefully Fields stays healthy.
How does a parent's alumni status make for an "unlikely" connection to tOSU? That is about as "likely" as it gets, for a teenager.
Akron is not Cleveland.
Last year, Holtman was quoted as saying he wanted "a combo G, a wing, and a rim protector" in the 20' class. Diallo's commitment obviously checks rim protector off that list.
Great to hear-his mom is doing a proper job of raising him as a Buckeye fan! With his size and skill set, he could definitely grab minutes as a frosh w/ the departure of Andre Wesson.
The kid plays at Westerville South. I'm sure Day or Mattison or Al Washington was able to get on the horn w/ a dozen HS coaches in the Columbus area and get the straight scoop on this kid from them. An AA player at tOSU told me that the staff under JT gave HS highlight tapes to guys on the team to re-use for class projects after tossing them in a pile in the corner. Any bigtime staff is NOT going to be relying on promotional video from recruits when making a decision to offer.
If he doesn't get starhanderouter hype like Urban, he is going to be reviled by 15% of the 11W community just as much those B10 coaches whose butts he is kicking...................
JT had an entire, highly touted LB class go kaput on him, from 09. The kid from Maryland almost lost his foot due to a severe ankle injury, the kid from L'vlle transferred, and so did a LB from PA who wound up having a helluva career at Pitt.
Even non "clever" people need #corporatetoolsocialmediahottaketoappearcorporate"cool" in their jobs these days................
They're called context clues-apparently you slept through jr. high ELA.......................
Luke Wypler and Paris Johnson re-upped. So far , so good.
Those are critiques of him vis a vis his NFL draft position-dude played at an All American level at UW. Also, if a dude is 6'2 200-Hyatt's approximate height/weight-and runs a legit 4.45 40 or 10.7 100m or whatever-he probably won't be projected as a bullet or SS.
Also, 11.2-while not state qualifier good-is far from "slow' for the 100 meters-plenty of functional football speed in that time
What facts-Urban is gone so real talent acquistion for the program is going to go in the crapper? That's not "facts", just neurotic-and false-handwringing.
Preach brother, preach!
Now only if BW's could take the sting out of their food sucking compared to their competitors..........
Waaaaaaaaqaaaah!!!!!!!!!! We're recruiting 2 star OL who are gonna suck!!!!! Save us!!!!!!!!!
The best run of OL talent-according to the starhanderouters-in tOSU history-has been acquired under OL Coach Studrawa's watch. If that isn't getting it done, I don't what is. If Wyatt Davis or Josh Myers or NPF were creeped out by the idea of playing for Coach Stud for 3 or 4 years guess what-they would have signed elsewhere. The dude is getting it done. Now back to your regularly scheduled recruiting neuroticism.
Sarcasm or dumbassery?
Great to see local talent getting the offer to shine in the Horseshoe
Well, if tOSU continues signing OL like NPF,Wyatt Davis,Josh Meyers, Harry Miller, Enokk Vimahi, and getting verbals from guys like Johnson and Wypler, maybe those people w/ "sources' should ask themselves if they are more concerned w/ actual talent acquisition-the best in the history of the program, according to starhanderouters or being little TMZ gossip queens.
He would definitely fit well as a 3rd RB, which is now a need.
The Bengals problem isn't that they are stingy in paying players, it's that they are VERY inflexible/uncreative in their roster management-draft, resign if they pan out, that's it-no trades or draft movement or scooping up value buys/salary cap FAs for all-in runs-what the Rams and Eagles did before the 17' and 18' seasons.
