I could see some sort of pardoy of this video ending up on Tosh.0 given that he's a Dolphins fan.

No, you can have Gee at your institution because he's "good at what he does", as you said. I would even go further and say he's great at what he does. Gene Smith, on the other hand, isn't. HUGE difference. 

Comment 25 May 2012

Actually, we're looking at a third straight top 10 recruiting class. 

And on GS- there's no way you could read this article and still think "he handled tatgate the best an AD could". He was slow in his response to the situation, expecting things to sort of die down when BAM (SI article), he was slow to respond to FTM charge, and he was terrible in anticipating the consequences (bowl ban). The FTM charge would NOT have happened with any good AD because the program would have been in lock down mode after tatgate. GS did absolutely nothing well.

Could someone on the 11W staff please right another story so that Gene Smith's picture isn't the first thing I see on the home page? Thanks in advance!

If I was the Browns GM, I'd have definitely given K. Moore a look in the 6/7 round. Also, I would have not drafted Weeden with the 22nd pick. Grab DeCastro there. Beef up the O-Line with a stud. Then let Moore and Colt duke it out in training camp if you are looking to shake things up a bit- anybody that is as accurate as Moore has a shot in the NFL- height be damned. Not sold on Weeden and let's face it, it's not like Colt had been put in a position to succeed up in Cleveland.

Why? Because it is close to being a finished project? Agree to disagree. To be fair and honest, if you evaluate based on number of kids, they are in the lead right now. If you evaluate based on talent and player rankings, OSU is #1, according to every recruiting service.


Match any 8 of their kids v the first 8 kids OSU has. Which group would you take?

Plus, the Della Valle kid from NV is looking good for the Buckeyes- at least he's definitely enjoying the Twitter love BuckeyeNation is giving him. He's a unique player from the film I've seen (most of which is a little dated from when he was younger playing for an Italian team). Here's an old tape of him from Youtube:


EDIT: and another one:

You can't miss him- he's the kid with the sweet hair. I don't follow basketball recruiting nearly as much as football recruiting, but after seeing Della Valle's game recently, I've become quite a fan. Love his style and is always giving effort. 

Comment 16 Apr 2012

It was only a matter of time.. I am kind of surprised though that Thad wasn't on the recruiting trail a little harder this past year. With Buford gone and it being a given that at least 1 other player was leaving (NBA or transfer), you would have thought we'd of had at least a little more of a presence on the recruiting trail. 

Comment 13 Apr 2012

All Ohio kids aren't going to Michigan- if an OH kid went up north, he either A) didn't have an offer (which is a majority of the OH kids that went up north), B) was a backup plan (read: Gedeon, Smith) or C) committed before Urban got there (read Dymonte).

Sean N- I surmise that you posted without thinking. "I surmise that with a user name like "Future Buckeye" that you must be about 9 or 10 years old." Really, bro? Jamal Marcus goes by "Future Buckeye" on Twitter. LOL, Marcus is a man! Someone is proud that they are going to be a Buckeye in the future, and you want to insinuate that they are a child? The future could be tomorrow.

I really don't get why people like you come on message boards and attempt to put people down, especially someone who IS GOING TO BE A BUCKEYE!!! GOOD LORD-- Get a life. Go Bucks!

Comment 03 Apr 2012

We don't know what anyone on the staff told any recruit exactly. All we know is that two recruits are saying different things. Also, these are high school kids we're talking about.

The line of thinking all along has been that 2 will be taken- also, the large amount of RBs offered sort of lends credibility to the notion that more than just 1 would be taken in this class. 

Comment 03 Apr 2012

My thoughts exactly, especially becasue, according to Green, Coach Drayton has told him that they will be taking 2 backs. You don't say NO to Derrick Green. End of Story. 


This is from Green per Bucknuts yesterday:

“Coach Drayton told me they are taking two backs and he wants me to be one of them”
