This is the truth: Dodson, Decker, Lisle, and now Jones. He hasn't gotten a single major OL recruit to stick from outside the state of Ohio.
Haha alright, my bad. I totally skipped over the smiley face at the end. Whoops!
We know we have the better O-line class but who has the better D-line class the last 2 years?
1) Adolphus Washington - DE
2) Noah Spence -DE
3) Joey Bosa - DE
4) Tracy Sprinkle - DE
5) Tyquan Lewis - DE

What about Sevon Pittman?
He is off the team. left this week. Other then Adolphus Washington, Noah Spence and Joey Bosa the OSU D-line is meh ok at best.

What about Jalin Marshall, I heard he makes plays, even on the o-line.
Personally I think right now on paper we got the better interior guys, but they have the better exterior guys at DE. It actually is a lot closer then I thought it would be for Dline talent, but I gotta give this one to OSU right now.
THIS. This nails it.
The question for them is can they replace Hankins, who helped cover a lot of their LB deficiencies in the run game.
For us the question is whether we can get a consistent outside pass rush.
This is absolutely correct. He ate up two defenders every time, covered our ass a lot.
The hope is Michael Hill will be that guy. Army All American and similarly built to Hankins.

no such thing my friend

OSU has the better D Line at this point on paper. I'm kinda worried about Washington and Spence...that's a heck of tandem. But Poggi, Hurst Jr, and Pipkins is awesome too. This is what I see....I compare that DL they have to South Carolina's DL. You don't wanna get into passing downs on them, but can maybe exploit them on the run game. We're the opposite, you prolly won't be able to run up the middle on us but we may struggle at time with a pass rush on the outside. If Wormley and Taco become studs....WATCH THE F*** OUT
One thing to keep in mind is that the top tier teams in the B10, including OSU, are not generally passing teams. They are predominantly run oriented. That can change, but as of now it's far more important to have a strong rushing defense than a strong passing defense in the B10.
I would agree with what you said but all the hype they had about how much better they're D-line was then ours was over blown we have better DT's then they do. Put that with our O-Line and I would take our 2 Lines over they'res any day.
Isn't Adolphus Washington going to move inside? He is kinda like Christ Wormley they both out grew them self's out of DE and will both likely move inside.
As long as he maintains his speed, he'll play SSDE, the role previously manned by John Simon. OSU uses it as a DT/DE tweener position.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Uh okay. thx for the info.
I was really surprised to look at that and think that our D line recruiting the last 2 years is actually realistically as good as the buckeyes. That is definately where they have recruited best the last 2 years and I didn't realize how good ours was until now. OSU's still might be a little better, but wait til next year with Mone already on board, Hand and Mcdowell thinking highly of us and us being in on several other solid D lineman!

If Michigan picks up Hand and Mcdowell to go along with Mone it lights out for OSU they wont be able to hang they're hat on they're D-line anymore.
Dodson might leave. If he did in fact, engage in the rape, Meyer's depth just went from paper thin to non existant if that's the case.

Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
The chickens are coming home to roost for Meyer all the player's he stole like Sevon Pittman. Kyle Dodson' and Joey O Connor have all left or about to leave the team.
God loves Michigan, not OSU
Maybe Noah Spence.
if Noah Spence leaves the team the Ohio meltdown will be epic to watch !
Serious question: are there actually whispers of Dodson leaving the program, or is that just Michigan wishful thinking?
We'll have to see what comes of the rape allegations, but until something substantial actually comes about, I'd hold off on the talk of kids leaving.
