Great article, thanks for sharing! Hoping Jeaux has a great year for LSU. And kick the shit out of 'Bama.
Prayers and comfort for his family and friends.
That is a lot of Buckeyes in the NFL!!!
Ricks, Robinson, and Ransom, come on down!
C'mon, man, its a fantasy thing, right? Carter NFL Hall of Fame > Hartline 2 years coaching experience. Carter played at TOSU as well. It's Cris freakin Carter.
Not discounting the job Hartline has done thus far, and his youth, being able to relate to recruits. He is doing great. He has only been a coach for a couple of years. Day's offense and the year Haskins had last year play a part in the success recruiting as well. Can't go wrong with Hartline.
Most everyone I ever competed against in any sport look like the greatest athlete that ever was. Sigh.
Hopefully he gets plenty of PATs and quite a few FGs this year.
The Bucks still ranked #2 in overall scoring last year, IIRC Imagine what could've been with more consistency near the goal line. Hopefully, no more "Yeah, we got to get that fixed" this year.
Maybe the fact that this is his last chance/year to prove himself might be enough for Victor to begin to reach some of that lofty potential that has been heaped upon him in the past.
Absolutely agree. The Nebraska QB could be a nightmare for a lot of teams. The Buckeye defense needs to assert itself on the road contests. To me, the crossover games and the teams within the division might be better than most think they are as well. Cautious optimism.
Waiting for the BOOMS...
Lots of TOSU alumni in Arizona as well.

Here is an article written in 2017 and updated in May 2019 from the Cincinnati Enquirer about the number of players from the greater Cincy area that are in the NFL (28). It lists the player, high school. college, and year drafted and round taken in the NFL. I understand that some players from that area may have already come and gone. I also understand that not reaching the NFL does not mean a players wasn't a pretty damn good college player, necessarily. It does not include Cincy area players still on rosters in the college ranks.
That said, 28 players is a pretty good amount of talent from one area, albeit over a period of time. TOSU had 4 players on that list, UCincy had 3, MSU had 2, and UK had 2. ND, Texas, Alabama, LSU, and a few other power 5 schools had 1 each, along with the MAC schools.
Seems to me TOSU is doing as good as anyone recruiting the Cincy area lately.
If you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes. Anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Luke is still the #3 player in Ohio for the 2020 class, I believe. I do not understand how he was lacking as a blocker, given who his father is. Good luck to him, except against the BUCKS.
Along with the appropriate article from Ramzy, please.

That picture had to be when UFM was at Florida. Otherwise, neither of them get that close to each other.
Right. And the quality of the D recruits for the 2020 class still will be pretty damn good, if not the quantity.
As Tress used to sat, we need "a pair and a spare". I think the offense will be 50/50 run/pass, so there should be carries for the backup running backs.
That was the first time I was in the 'Shoe in a very long time, having flown in from Houston to watch THE GAME with my brother and a couple buddies. The win made for a very memorable trip "home" to see my family. I still have the ticket stub to that game.
The Buckeyes are recruiting their needs right now, where there is less depth, which is likely on offense. There is more depth on the defensive side of the team right now and less of a need. Sure, a better performance on the field and familiarity with the coaches will definitely help in recruiting on the defensive side, but the apparent lack of defensive recruits and "stars" for the 2020 cycle might have more to do with the fact the less defensive players are needed than on offense.
Yeah, the 1967 class that helped win the 1968 NC had like 14 players get drafted by the NFL in 1971, four or five in the first round.
Still, this class is looking pretty epic.
Beat me to it, Hove.
