Dang they closed good a month ago and now there class is falling apart. They still have a good class, but still funny.
It seems weird that Meyer would risk the recruitment of a bigger, faster, higher rated guy in eze for a smaller, not as fast, lower rated guy in Wilson. But then Urb is the genious and I sure he knows what he is doing. Does Wilson really only weigh 165 lbs (I've seen 175 also) at 5' 10"?
Yeah, if they only lose Jacobs, won't mean much. Even loosing EZE would not be totally damaging with Wilson in the fold. If they lost all three, that would be bad.
Clearly EZE sees it differently. Otherwise, a guy who was one of your first commits doesn't take a last minute visit to Mizzou, even if his parents are from there.
Okay. I just seems to be that Wilson's opportunity was better at Oregon for his skill set, but that ship has sailed...I think. Tomorrow will be fun.
WOTS in St. Louis is that Elliot isn't considering a flip because he's scared of competition, it's because Meyer lied to him about being the only back in the class. People can say whatever they want about Dontre Wilson playing the slot, but Dontre is a versatile athlete who will take some RB touches away from Elliot, so Elliot might see him as another RB, and thus a broken promise from Meyer.
I'm willing to grant that this was an autocorrect, but the image of a RB doing a curtsy.....8^D
I was laughing at that as well.
Actually, closing very strong....The word is Clark=OSU now too....Elliott=OSU, Jacobs was wavering and a staff writer said he spoke with the staff and they were going to make it "easy" for him to decide, which frees up the spot for Clark...I'll take that trade off.
i don't think its a big deal. if he wants to leave then i sure hope he does. were near the top of some '14 kids that i would like to have. (jalen hurd, marshon lattimore)
plus, the backfield is already crowded. it's likely someone like Ball will transfer.
Not to worried about Johnson either. I don't want to say locks but cliffton garret and dante booker are as close as it gets ! ( i think lol ) plus were on the top of raekwon mcmillans board.
I'm just excited to start '14 recruiting tomorrow ! lol!
Well If Elliott thinks he should get ALL the touches then he's coming to the wrong offense anyway...Wilson will not play the same position but yes, he will shift from slot to backfield (like Brown last year) and carry the ball on some sweep/option plays. If that really gets him upset then go to Mizzou and get hammered for 4 years.....With Hyde, Dunn, Smith, Ball, Hall on the roster and most of those back for 2/3 years it won't kill us..
Couldn't be further from reality, Jacobs (who I really like) does not really hurt with Smith and Clark, EZE is what it is and Trey Johnson told the staff he would be signing. Definitely going to be a top 3 class with all sorts of talent on offense and defense.
What if Urbie has more heart burn....what if??
How are these idiots still allowed to post on this board? If anyone of us had gone over there and acted like they have, we wouldve been banned a while ago
Please look at my posts throughout this thread.
We're surprisingly tolerant, but they'll all be gone with the new site changes.
Is that what you want though? Id be mad if Neo etc was banned from our site. I show respect(for the most part), only chime in on tOSU threads and give tOSU insight on "Mike Mitchell and Trey Johnson are garbage" type things like today. Sports forums are better with others opinions instead of just being riddled with bias garbage like i quoted earlier. imo. Now just coming on here to gloat and run mouth is different
I like Hurburt, he can stay, can't say the same about some others...
There are maybe 3 OSU posters who come to this board that I'm ok with. dukeluke, dkerns, and Huburt are all ok. If I have to give those three up to avoid all the trolls, I'm perfectly fine with that. We haven't had a Bucknut-free post on this board for weeks.
As far as my input for OSU's Texas recruiting, Barrett is a good one, Wilson is good, one of the better RB's in the state but Mitchell is a workout warrior that just screams bust. He went to my high school and switched to private school so he could get more exposure, just seems like a kid who doesn't like competition. Also, Barrett has good film but he doesn't play against the greatest competition in the state. Dontre Wilson and Desoto play some of the toughest competition in the state and Desoto is one of the top programs in DFW.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Look, I go over to bucknuts a LOT. But I act differently over there. I don't troll, don't criticize their coach or players, and unless specifically asked don't go there telling them how awesome michigan is.
I like to have outsiders here, but just don't act like it is your board. There are a bunch of guys, many on this thread, that are reasonable...but it seems like some days we get out numbered by the trolls. It is frustrating.
Case in point: today.
What I wanted out of today was to come on Wolverine247, celebrate signing day, talk about how awesome all our recruits are and how excited I am about this class.
Instead, I get Bucknuts coming over here bragging about Vonn Bell, saying how Meyer's better than Hoke, talking about how good their commits are, etc. That's not what I'm here for. I don't give a good goddamn about how good Meyer is or how well OSU is doing.
I, for one, welcome the new changes and the closed-off homeboards. tBB already has a ton of Bucknuts, if I want to interact with OSU fans I can always go there.
Thats fine but for not caring about anything tOSU there sure are alot of threads over here on the Buckeyes. Or else i would never post or come here
No, there aren't. Outside of the OSU-Mich game threads from last night, there are 3, and I'm being generous with the interpretation. Even among those three, none of them are asking for contributions from OSU fans.
FFS, our general 2013 recruiting thread is turning into a shitshow with Bucknuts bragging about how good their recruits/players are.
