a little bit hurt here that I did not make the list of acceptable trolls
And that's why this isn't a great idea. We're always going to forget a few...
I'm trying to get that up to 99% but sometimes it's hard to refrain from getting in the mix when a Wolverine shows it's teeth...

Two great classes signed today. Poor rest of the B1G.
See you in a few hundred days. Maybe sooner on the hardwood.
Oh and I hate you all. Just kidding. ...kinda??
296 days to be exact. We will have to see how many of these recruits have impact in year one. Can't wait to see how the OSU class develops. Last highly ranked class was with TP. That class ultimately was disappointing.
ESPN was doing a rundown of some of the biggest recruiting battles of the last 10 years, and they would list player, schools competing, who won, etc.
When they got to Pryor, the post said:
Schools: Michigan, Ohio State
Winner: Ohio State (kinda)."
Other than the obvious off the field stuff, I'm not sure we can call it disappointing. It was the backbone of 3 BCS appearances in which they went 2-1 (and should've beat Texas to go 3-0). 99% of college programs would kill for that success and that class.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
I agree, but when TP picked TUOS (I cringed), I told my son that anything less than a national championship is a disappointment. Of course OSU was coming off of two NC game appearances.
When everything is evaluated, including the off the field crap, that was not a disappointing class. You are right. But I set my sights too high apparently.
TUOS = The University Ohio State? That Ugly Old School? The Underachieving Overhyped State?
Let me know when I'm close.

They can't even get a P to sign with them. What losers.
Ohio has scraps for punters
+1. Urbz can't close.
I have to laugh at all the Buckeyes trumpeting their NSD success this year. How quickly the failure to lure Stefon Diggs and Davonte Neal is forgotten.
That said, Urban did indeed do a great job this year. And he's a great recruiter. Some years he'll get his late victories, some he won't.
Wow, pulling out two recruits that Urban had a whole 5 weeks to try to recruit....Diggs stayed home, I could research and find out what schools were trying to get him for the entire year and lost out, but I don't care that much. I think Urban did fine last year with no time invested, and obviously did very well this year. I will give your boy B.O.B. kudos for getting a good class this year under the sanctions, but don't get too carried away as the real answer to the test will be what kind of team you can field in year 4 of your sanctions (if they aren't lifted by lawsuit)...For the record, I hope they are reduced for the good of the BIG, although I won't be crushed if they aren't due to some of your fans that I would like to see suffer through some tough seasons.
Not trolling but wanted to add updates to your thread on OL recruiting at Ohio State.
The #7 OG Marcelys Jone and #12 OT Kyle Trout nationally for 2014 class have now committed to OSU.

I've heard Kyle Trout didn't look that good to the Michigan coaches. I believe someone said "he looks like Tarzan but plays like Jane" when describing Trout's game.

Perfect for a spread offense.
Congrats on beating out the MAC schools for Trouts service.
I heard the same thing. He doesn't even start for his high school team.
Both are good pickups. Trout is not a guy Michigan was looking at...and I have seen him play, he was good but not great, but of course I haven't seen him in camps. I don't know anything about Jones.
OSU needs the instate guys. If they can't get them, they may as well hang it up. Getting these guys is the most basic step they could take.
