Oh, thank you Santa, my Christmas came early this year.
I'll start off with that sanctimonious prick tOSU president Gordon Gee:
How do you like them apples, Buckeyes?(+1 to anyone who still has an unread Gordon Wood book in their attic).
Did anyone catch the loop on Sportscenter with Mark May blabbering about the OSU players and how the NCAA wouldn't let other schools/conferences off that easy? I don't have the script exactly but at one point he said that if Mallett or anyone in the SEC had done this they would be suspended immediately.(no bowl game at the very least) And the Big Ten is the "Golden Boy" of the NCAA, etc. HA! You're right Mark, Cam Newton sure paid the penalty.
Did anyone else find this preposterous? I usally don't mind MM but I think he was way off on this one. Personally I think the NCAA was harsh on the OSU guys for suspending them 5 games. IMHO
I did not want to put this guy's name in the title for obvious reasons. Willie Beavers is listed as an OT prospect on the front page of Scout but his Senior film has a considerable amount of highlights at DT. Size somewhere around 6'5" 300 lbs. with only MAC offers plus Illinois - I know the board disdains poor Zook, but he is a proven recruiter and has a knack for finding sleepers. With our lack of success in DT recruiting and the aching need for depth at that position I hope that we are at least giving this instate kid a look.
Check it out: DT highlights start at about 5:15.
I decided to see what they are saying in Columbus and ran across this story where Posey's mother blames the NCAA for not providing more than they do for college athletes. Frankly, I was a bit dumbfounded when I read the article. Instead of accepting responsibility for doing something dumb, she shifts the blame.
She blames the high cost of living in Columbus, among other things.
The Columbus dispatch is running a poll on whether Pryor stays or leaves - 85% have him leaving.
according to scout.com Matt Goudis flipped from Boise State to us and is now listed as a commit...Rivals however has not broken any such news....
Any further confirmation? Didnt see anything on the board.
DAYS UNTIL JONAS MOUTON FINDS A WAY TO GET THE BALL IN HIS HANDS!
<meta: Unfortunately, the MGoFamily has decided on spending Christmas in Canada. This limits my access to the interweb considerably. Saturday's and Sunday's posts will NOT be at midnight, but I will try as best I can to get them up later in the day. Midnight posts will restart on Monday. Merry Christmas to the MGoCommunity. Stay safe, stay warm, get ready to kick some bulldog @$$; next week is ours.>
