You don't have to take Smith's word for it. Dwayne Haskins said Dennis was crucial to his development

I'm not convinced Melton even stays at LB. He's already at 230-240 and he's almost certainly going to add some weight when Marotti gets his hands on him. Think Melton ultimately projects as a DE whenever he sees the field.

Unless he's going to argue that the 4 game redshirt rule should be retroactively applied to his freshman season at Ole Miss in 2016, in which he played 3 games, I'm not sure what argument he really has. He played 7 games the year he got hurt so too many to qualify for a medical redshirt, so I'd say there's little to no shot Patterson gets a waiver to come back in 2020. Allowing one player to retroactively apply a redshirt to a time when the rule was not in place opens a pandoras box for any player who played in less than 4 games at any point in their career to apply for another year, and I don't think the NCAA will want to deal with that.

He was 6/13 for 100 yards at halftime.

Wisconsin's production came almost entirely on 2 45 yard Jonathan Taylor runs in the first half. Outside of those two plays their offense averaged 4.9 YPP on the game

Comment 09 Dec 2019

Hol' up... Wisconsin abused us with the pass?

Jack Coan was 17/33 for 230 yards and no TDs.  5/8 for 76 yards came on the final drive with OSU sitting in a prevent.

So Coan was 12/25 for 157 yards and no TDs prior to garbage time, what game did they watch on Saturday?

Comment 09 Dec 2019

Agreed, I think the day 1 WR rotation will be about 6 deep:

Wilson, Olave, Fleming, Gill, Williams, Scott

And then JSN and Mookie getting plenty of mop up time and possibly playing their way into some real PT later in the year. Gill is a wildcard at H because he didn't really play at all this year, so theres a chance for some serious PT for the freshman wideouts.

Comment 05 Dec 2019

When it looks like a reach, I'm going to call it that

You mean when you only see 3 stars next to their name on 247?

Let's be honest, you don't have an ounce of the scouting acumen that the OSU football staff does. None of us do. You're not insulting the players, you're actually insinuating that you are a better evaluator of talent than coaches at the number 1 school in the country. You don't sound like a dick, you just come off as arrogant.

If their feelings are hurt, I guess they can work hard and prove me wrong.

I promise no recruits goal is to prove some fans on a message board wrong. They're going to set out to prove the coaches who offered them a scholarship right.

Lejond's 247 ranking is also comical (517 and the 37th ranked Safety). He played corner at The Opening, played corner the entire season opposite Elias Ricks, and is playing corner at OSU. Has offers from pretty much every big name school in the North, South, East, and West, most of whom were offering as a corner. Recorded a 44 inch vert, 4.1 shutte, and 4.4 40 time.

And 247 still ranks him as a safety, and a mediocre one at that.

Comment 04 Dec 2019

Julian Fleming - up 1 to 6
Paris Johnson - up 3 to 7
JSN - up 46 to 32
Gee Scott - stayed at 36
Mookie Cooper - down 9 to 50
Darrion Henry - stayed at 61
Clark Phillips - up 2 to 63
Lathan Ransom - down 4 to 81
Kourt Williams - up 12 to 87
Jacolbe Cowan - stayed at 138
Lejond Cavazos - down 12 to 151
Cody Simon - up 15 to 163
Luke Wypler - down 9 to 213 (fucking LOL)

So yeah, minimal movement outside of JSN. Wypler's ranking is comical.
 

Comment 04 Dec 2019

Two coaches from their side come over to our side and all of the sudden the slow inept LB corps from the worst defense in OSU history turn into a murderers row

This was more due to scheme change than player development. Washington was LB coach at UM for one season, so it's not like we really got to see how he was at developing recruits into NFL athletes. Mattison was coaching DL at Michigan, and doesn't even have a position group at OSU. His DL development was not great, but his and Hafley's scheme this year was brilliant.

Our old Oline coach that none of us wanted to see leave after the 2014 championship is now their Oline coach

Convenient that you chose 2014 and not 2015, when there wasn't an OSU fan in the world who wanted to retain Warriner. Firing him and Beck was the absolute best thing to happen to the assistant coaching staff in the last 2 decades.

Comment 04 Dec 2019

I see what the committee honestly trying to do they’re trying to set it up for a Clemson vs another sec team in the title game once again

I think if anything the committee is trying to keep OSU at 1... jumping Wisconsin up to 8 and only dropping UM 1 spot are both boosts to OSUs resume, while dropping Bama all the way to 12 takes a top 10 win away from LSU. The committee has screwed OSU plenty of times, but this certainly isn't one of those times.

Take care of business Saturday and we stay at 1, barring LSU laying a 59-0 style game on UGA (in which case they'd deserve to jump us)

Comment 03 Dec 2019

Because it comes of as trolling when A. the targets are all listed at the top of the page and B. OSU is considered the leader for a couple of absolute studs and a contender for a few more on the DL, so calling it the biggest concern is like saying WR is a concern in the 2020 class.

I didn't downvote you, but DL recruiting is probably the position group you should be least worried about for 2021.

Comment 03 Dec 2019

Height doesn't matter so much as arm length. Jackson's 6'11" wingspan is plenty big to succeed on the outside should OSU choose to use him as a tackle

Comment 03 Dec 2019

Coaching and Culture obviously are areas where OSU excels over Michigan, but recruiting is absolutely a factor. Of the current 85 man rosters, OSU has 9 more 5 stars and 11 more 4 stars. That's a 20 man advantage in "blue chip" talent. OSU has consistently recruited at a level significantly higher than Michigan. So while people like Olave certainly matter, the talent gap is definitely there as well.

Comment 03 Dec 2019

I’m not sure that the recruiting gap is all that wide

The 247 team talent composite certainly says otherwise. A talent drop off of 120 composite points is fairly significant. OSU has 60 "blue chip" (4 and 5 star) recruits on the roster to Michigan's 40. This is with an entire 4 years of Harbaugh recruits. The recruiting gap is large, and will likely continue to grow.

Comment 02 Dec 2019

Montee Ball was out of the NFL in 2 years because he was an alcoholic who showed up to camp 30 pounds overweight and then got cut when he was arrested for domestic violence.

I do agree Dobbins should go get his money though, just saying should he come back for a 4th year, Ball is definitely not the right comparison lol

Comment 26 Nov 2019

OSU may be a heavy favorite — 10 points, in some places. But the buzz in Ann Arbor isn’t what it is so often during this week.  

Resignation has been replaced with … (slight) hope? At least hope for a competitive game.  

Huh? Outside of maybe 2017, they have come into this week fully believing that they would win the game. 15/16/18 were some of the most arrogant hate weeks from their side I can remember in my lifetime.

Comment 26 Nov 2019

According to this chart, it's 51-51-5 for 1907, right?. So technically there is not a person alive who has seen more OSU losses vs TTUN than wins.

Comment 26 Nov 2019

The only thing that’s really moved the ball at all on our defense is an option QB

Specifically, one that weighs 230+ and can run over a linebacker and fall forward. Clifford wasn't able to do anything with his legs, Levis could because, like Langdon at Rutgers, he weighed 235 pounds and is difficult to bring down.

Patterson barely cracks 200 pounds.I'll be jumping for joy if their offensive gameplan is centered around his legs in a read option game.
