Based on crystal balls it looks like Clemson will have a class for the ages. It looks like it is going to pass our 2017 class for avg ranking per player. I hate those guys!

Comment 08 Mar 2019

It's funny how many downvotes I received from the comment on Leroux's ranking but I am sure the same people are hoping for us to have the highest rated recruiting class in the country. When Spooner or someone else provides a SWAG of what they think the class will look like and it is over 300 points some of you are about to explode with giddiness. Hint - Leroux drags the ranking down. Bama/Clemson do not take many kids ranked this low.

My point is that we have historically had problems keeping low 3 star offensive lineman in the program before they are recruited over (under both Stud and Warinner). I know there are exceptions to the rule, even with offensive lineman, but I think Ohio State should be aiming higher this early in the cycle.

Leroux is ranked by 247 sports as the 907th best prospect in the nation with offers from meh programs. I hope Day realizes that recruiting is the lifeblood of your program. We have problems getting 5 stars playing time under Stud's development. Maybe he will have better luck with low 3 stars.

If Davis decided that Borland and Werner were the best options to start and that Browning is a middle linebacker he is clueless. Would really like to know who made that decision.

Comment 11 Jan 2019

There is no way he made this decision without being assured that he is going to play significant minutes. Very disappointed.  If you want to get 5 stars you need to play 5 stars and live with some growing pains. Feel terrible for Okudah and Wade.  Arnette is a liability out there.

Tate's never ending comments about Fields makes me believe he is scared shitless of Fields. I wish the coaches would tell him to STFU.  If Tate truly thought about why Fields is likely transferring to Ohio State it is because Ryan Day is not comfortable with Tate as a 1.  

Comment 01 Jan 2019

Okudah is a top ten overall player, 5 star, coming out of the 2017 class. Wade is a top twenty overall player, 5 star, USA defensive player of the year, coming out of the 2017 recruiting class. An average defensive back coach should have these guys capable of starting their sophomore year.  I guess I have expectations that are too high.

low 4 star Tony Alford seems like just another coach with a history with Urban.

Look at his recruiting - He inherited Mike Weber. Dobbins committed without ever visiting the campus based on Zeke's reputation. Other than that he recruited a low 4 star in this class (Crowley) and a low 4 star in the 2018 class (Teague). His higher four star from 2018 is likely gone (Snead). He whiffed on the rb who transferred to North Carolina (Williams).

If you look at his rb development it is just average. Weber and Dobbins seem to have regressed. They have a hard time running over people and get caught from behind.   For some reason people give him a pass.

Sure wished Urban told JT to go pro a year earlier. The structure of playing lesser talented kids with more seniority is ridiculous. It really frustrated me watching our corners this year. 

Comment 04 Dec 2018

I think he quit when he was informed of the 3 game suspension. He was talked into staying for the remainder of the season to help with the transition. It explains why the press conference ran 8 hours later than planned and why Shelley was at the BOT meeting. Most of the coaches -- expect for Day -- were not sure if they would be employed in 2019. As a result, we were undisciplined, poorly coached, and flat all season. I don't care what the PR machine is saying. Urban is walking away from over $20m because of a combination of Michael Drakes and the BOT's incompetence and Urban's fragile narcistic personality.
