Ohio State 2017 Preseason Thread
« on: July 21, 2017, 07:49:46 AM »
Has anyone been to the <a href="https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football-recruiting/2017/07/83550/commit-watch-friday-night-lights-brings-top-prospects-to-columbus-potential-for-more-july-fireworks">Friday Night Lights </a> that OSU is doing?

Is it something I a fan would like to see? Or is it just a glorified love fest for potential recruits?

Vegas is listing odds on Schiano to become the next coach at Ole Miss. I hope that's not the case.

I guess he started it at Florida, and it must be pretty effective because many have copied it or done something similar since.

Many commitments have come from this event in the past, and many new discovered future commits have made their case.

Possible but I would think they'll be looking for a Southerner and someone who knows how to avoid stepping in the steaming cow pies in Oxford.

Darius Slade who flipped from Nebraska to MSU to OSU in the last like 5 weeks before Signing Day is transferring to Arizona State, so his coach can really fine tune his lack of commitment abilities.

Thought he would really be in the mix.Buckeyes are loaded at DE and usually convert a few inside.Good luck to him moving forward

Think "Arm" could go to Cardale Jones.  "Tenacity" could go to Zeke.  And Joey Bosa needs to be in there somewhere.

Practice started today for the Bucks. My biggest concerns at this point:


1) WRs by a mile. 
2) Mike Weber is a bit of a hot head and extremely emotional.  I just have a bad feeling he is going to make some big mistakes in key games.  Sparty totally rattled him last year and I expect other teams to try the same.
3) I have to list secondary since it is mostly new players, but the Buckeyes always seem to reload here. 
4) I am not concerned about JT at all.

I never new Weber was a hot head.   I will have to watch for that. 

I share your concerns about the receiving Corp.   talented but inexperienced.  But my biggest concern is the secondary. You just can't put that many guys in the NFL in three consecutive seasons and not get burned.

The new crew is loaded with talent, just terribly green outside of Ward and Webb.

My guess is BAker Mayfield comes in and takes advantage knocking them out of the top ten quickly. But they will be super solid by mid season just due to excellent competition and coaching at practice.

Haha, you should have seen the game thread last year with Sparty.  Weber could've easily been tossed.  I know ELA was calling for it.  His old Michigan HS foes really rattled him.

DT Michael Hill suspended for at least one game for some rumored ganja related offense

I think you might be thinking of someone else, I mailed it in in November and didn't watch more than a couple scattered plays for the rest of the year.  I didn't even watch the lone conference win over Rutgers.  I did see some snippets of MSU-OSU in channel surfing, but I don't recall having an opinion on it.  Maybe I've forgotten though.
