I'm not saying play them. I'm saying they're true freshmen that are not on the list above.

Urban Meyer and his coaching staff are absolutely, 100% a public employees. By any definition of the term 'public employee'.

Comment 21 Sep 2015

Let's talk about how The Ohio State University is a public institution funded in part by tax dollars.

Let's talk about how Urban Meyer and his coaching staff are among the highest paid public employees in the state of Ohio.

Let's talk about how I have every right to voice my opinion (for good or ill) in a public forum where those public employees are doing their job.

27-23 OSU. Offense misses Marshall, Brown, Wilson, and Smith - has difficulty moving the ball consistently but Zeke and the O-line eventually wear down VT's front 7. Defense plays very well throughout, holding VT to mostly FGs. VT scores a special teams touchdown. OSU rotates QBs a couple of times trying to find an effective combination. We all breathe a sigh of relief when the clock finally runs out.

BW3s in Hilliard is showing it. They have 260 seats and it's a cover charge of $20 bucks. Kitchen will be open. When I called to get my tickets a couple of days ago they still had almost 170 seats left to fill.

Counterpoint: I went to grad school in San Diego and wish every day that I could go back.

I've been waiting to see a finalized report on who redshirted and who did not. Good call on Jones, though - I knew he played. I'm not sure about Webb or Lattimore. Dixon did play but I've seen reports that he'll qualify for a medical redshirt so I'm keeping him as a redshirt for now.

The other mistake I had was Evan Lisle as a RS freshman - he'll be a 3rd year sophomore next season. I've also updated this with the information gleaned from Urban's press conference - Reeves and Tanner are now highlighted yellow to reflect their questionable status.

So now we'll be at 86 if Dunn transfers and Reeves, Bogard, and Tanner are medical hardships. Still 1 over and still oversigning but much better than 4-5 over.

Thanks for the help - I want this to be as accurate as possible!

It's really not that simple.

I count 91 based on my own google spreadsheet.

That includes Devan Bogard (who has not officially been declared a medical hardship) and Brionte Dunn (rumored transfer has not been confirmed yet). Guys like Dodson, Chris Carter, etc. have been off my list for a long time. So even if Bogard and Dunn are finished at OSU that still leaves us at 89.

I trust that Urban Meyer and the coaching staff know more than we do about the status of the players (obviously) but bringing things into the light is the only way to ensure that there aren't abuses going on in the background.

When other SEC schools have been in this position (91 on the roster in February) we have kicked and screamed even when there were seemingly legitimate transfers/hardships/etc that trickled out in the following months. We should hold ourselves to that same standard and be completely above reproach on this matter. At this point, I don't think we've met that standard or even come close.

Very possibly you're correct.

But, from what I gather, other folks are talking about it too (the group I mentioned in my update to the original post) so that's why I posted it here asking for corroboration from others - if others are talking about it then it shouldn't be only me who is hearing it.
