I am a Buckeye legacy - both parents, multiple Aunts and Uncles, 4 first cousins, brother-in-law and sister all attended and (mostly) graduated before I did. I started my OSU career early, as I was born in University Hospital.

Know everyone is aware how impressive this class is shaping up to be. Just took a trip over to 247 to take a spin on their 'class calculator'. Made some selections that may not be the consensus among our 11W brethren, (Oweh , Petit-Frere, Tuliaupupu, Togiai over Parsons, Scruggs, Pope, ?), and only have 5 of 25 commits under the 2017 class average! This also with commits like Sevyn Banks, Master Teague, and Jayson Oweh named by many to be in line for major bumps in their rankings. Haven't crunched #s, but it is possible this class will come close to averaging .9600 !

Agree 100% B52. Just don't see Alabama able to make up for the slow start, with so many of the higher rated players either committed or heavy leans to other programs.

Thanks for the 'quick look' BRW15. I'm only counting 22 players here. Have seen estimates elsewhere that say 25/26 is more likely, and having taken a look at the scholarship grid, I feel that class size is more likely. S, WR, and LB look to be positions of greater need than is reflected here imho.

Thanks. Really only noticed because I was checking out the position rankings column. Fun #s to contemplate: 12 of 19 commits are top 5 at their positions, with 2 others being top 10. Not bad. In scanning through the other schools classes, there are none that even come close, including ttun.

Sending you positive vibes for running within yourself, staying strong, and finishing healthy!

Had they lost 31-21, I don't think there would be a 'call for change' on the offensive side of the ball. Change is needed, therefore this game could be seen as THE positive catalyst for that change.
