I love really like their podcast BuckeyeTalk for perspectives about the football program in general, but they have no good info at all with regards to recruiting
I’ll second this. They’re the best premium site by a country mile at the moment
You are required to have consent before you engage in any sexual activity ever. Thats not saying that you need to pause and ask every 10 seconds, or that you need to ask your wife of 10 years for VERBAL consent, but you DO need someone's consent to engage in sexual activity with them. Anyone, including someone's wife of 10 years or someone who began having sex with someone consensually, can say no to sexual activity, at any time.

This fact is actually scientifically proven
He didn’t have a great showing during the All-American games. Those games, justified or not, usually get some pretty significant pull the final rankings
The SEC has a mutually assured destruction thing going on, that's why the system they use works. Anything that gets reported to the SEC office stays in the SEC office and doesn't get pushed up to the NCAA. This isn't the case in the B1G or in the PAC. It's actually gonna be an interesting experiment to see what happens with Cristobal using a more "SEC style" recruiting system, since the PAC reports any infractions directly to the NCAA. I know this kind of stuff sounds conspiracy-ish, but it is surprisingly openly talked about in the media world. If you listen to the "Podcast aint played nobody" podcast hosted by Steven Godfrey from Banner Society (Formerly known as SBNation", they talk pretty candidly about it. Their most recent podcast about the AFCA coaches conference goes in on some of the inner-workings of this.
Rivals just released their new top 10 and the composite updated to reflect it. It will continue to change as they roll out their top 100 and top 250
It’s honestly ridiculous how good Trent has been
They progressively hand out 5 star status to players they feel have earned it, with them having 32 at the end of the evaluation cycle. If he stays there then he will be a 5* by the end of the year
Fox/B1G has been really aggressive about taking their games off of YouTube this year. They’ll be up for a few days after the game, but they are always gone at this point in the week
Gotta hope that it doesn`t come to fruition, but it would have to be a hard opportunity to turn down if true
Offers are only public if the kid wants them to be. He could have many more and just not have announced them since he was committed
As a buckeye fan I have to respect the pettiness. But uhh maybe don’t give up 56 after doing this
Side note, “Husker du” means “do you remember?” in Norwegian ( and Danish, but I don’t speak danish so that’s not my point lol). So I think the song “New Day Rising” by a band who’s name means “do you remember?” seems pretty relevant for Michigan week this year
To be clear, we have been willing to take Williams for a while now. It’s not about OSU giving the green light, it’s already there
They`re should be. I`m not sure what their thinking
Who the hell takes black market ADHD medicine or doubles up?
Some studies have found usage numbers as high as 15% of students have used non-prescribed Adderall/Ritalin to study with. Behind weed, it’s by far the most common drug on any given campus. As a recent graduate, I can tell you Ohio State is no different
Here is the Birm article. I went searching for stuff Birm did about Ringo, because I could have sworn I saw a video of his that kinda mentioned it in a cryptic kind of way too, but I couldn’t find that. I ended up finding this article though, and I think the point still gets across lol
Yes, the Buckeyes would love to have Kelee Ringo on board. But is there any chance for a significant return on the investment into recruiting him? That’s the million-dollar question.
Birm was going for the subtle approach in explaining this one back in the summer lol
I will always and forever upvote every B99 reference
He’s one of those kids that the recruiting guys just trip over themselves to compliment, from both a talent and character standpoint. One thing that is definitely clear is that the staff LOVES him. Excited to see what he can do when he gets here. Strikes me as a kid that’ll end up being a captain at some point, and probably someone we hear a lot from in interviews ala Jordan Fuller
Ringo is going to Georgia. And, as Brim said, he is going there for many reasons
Semi-related: I can tell you that a certain former OSU football RB from Detroit who drove a yellow Dodge Challenger (or maybe a Charger I don’t remember for sure) used to park wherever the heck he wanted ALL the time. I don’t know for sure if he ever got fines for it, but I would have to imagine he did given how CampusParc treats parking tickets
