Was this just a random bump, or did somebody on OSU's radar commit elsewhere again?
This entire thread will be one big waste if dorian johnson commits...
That's one player. You need more than one to play the line.
Nah, your OL still sucks.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
That's like saying Maryland's WR corp isn't crap because Stefon Diggs chose them last year.
What about when he inevitably commits to Pitt? Then your OL will still be garbage.
"Corch Urbs will convert some DEs, because we have so much talent there, unlike Michigan. Brady Hoke can't recruit any DEs."
No, there have not been any good OL. Lisle is garbage, terrible feet and technique. Decker is nothing special, will probably have a Elliot Mealer-esqe career. Dodson is average, but needs a lot of coaching. I don't feel the others are even worth mentioning.
Gholston made a couple plays last year because of the attention payed to worthy. The kid hasn't even started every game this year because they wanted more production. So let's use William Gholston as the measuring stick to relate how good he is. I think he has one sack and 3 tackles this year for gods sake
I love that this thread will not die. Rasputin.
1) Lisle has some of the worst technique I've seen, I would be extremely surprised if he ended up being a solid player
2) Nobody was giving Shane the Heisman, he has all the tools, but he needs a few years to develop before we can even think about passing judgement.
3) Jim Tressel recruited some very good OL and was great at coaching them up. Meyer and his staff have not recruited OL well and hasn't proved anything in terms of coaching.
4) Troy Smith was a 4* QB coming out of high school, per Rivals. Not exactly a nobody.
Morris is still a better player currently than Lisle and could probably start and be mediocre next year, while Lisle would be dominated by even the worst DL.
Why the hate? Because he sucks, yet Bucknuts loves him and he is vastly overrated by all the recruiting sites.
I mean, just look at his film. He plays high, has terrible and slow footwork, not to mention that little hop thing he does when the ball is snapped, and takes him a few seconds for him to push the DE back on run plays, against bad HS players.
Evan Lisle - 2013 OT - End of Year Junior Highlights
I don't know how tOSU will compete with Michigan....Michigan gets ALL the great players and tOSU gets all the leftovers.....tsk tsk...tOSU should just forfeit the last game of the year....
If by any slim chance, if the stars all align and somehow tOSU gets all their prayers answered and they beat Michigan this year, what in the world will the Michigan fans say? It will really break them up as it will put an end to their long winning streak in "The Game".....
You're talking a lot of shit for almost losing all of your games except for Miami (OH) and Nebraska.
Haha! Are you a coach? Bc our coaches and the BTN are basically blowing Decker. You NEVER know how a kid is going to translate from HS to College so ill sit back and see how things pan out. Opposed to labeling HS kids as "garbage"
Do you think your coaches are going to say that Decker is bad? You usually can tell how they will play out, as long as they have a consistent work ethic. Every player has a ceiling, it's up to the coaches to help them reach that ceiling and their work ethic dictates whether they have the opportunity to reach it. I'm not saying the kids I listed don't have the work ethic, but I don't see a high ceiling for any of them.
Dodson is the only one I could see become a solid contributor.
Youre making too much sense
Do you really think OSU's line is even in the same stratosphere as Alabama's line?
You just lost all your credibility. Haha!
Yeah, JT and Bollman were KNOWN for coaching and pumping out great lineman. Wow! And the things Warriner has done with this Oline are astronomical from how Bollman left them. It's been very well documented by the media and Meyer himself. Clueless apparently when it comes to tOSU you are
Looking like a fool with your pants on the ground..
Hell no! But it is waaaaaaay better than expected and Warriner is doing an EXCELLENT job. Awards at the end of the year type job thus far
You don't need to pump out great offensive linemen to be a good coach. I can't remember watching an OSU line struggle until last season, when Tressel was gone.
I'm just going to keep letting you get your hopes up.
Here, have some more Kool-aid.
Oline, moreso than any other position, can do well/overachieve with less talent. The Brew Crew were all world but they had an incompetent oline coach. To the point when they were at the senior bowl coaches were ripping them about how poorly they were coached.
Warriner is making a converted TE into a very solid tackle and stepping up everybody else's talent on the line as well. I have absolutely no worries when it comes to Oline. The recruits we land will be more than serviceable. Book it
Well you need to watch more bc they were horrible JT's entire tenure basically. Bollman was AWFUL! Any tOSU fan that knows anything will tell you that
