According to ESPN Ray Smalls may have lost his scholarship as result of accademic problems. See link below:
osu may be losing a returning starter
That leaves Lamaar Thomas as the heir apparent slot, though I'm not terribly familiar with the incoming freshman.
Devier Posey = sophomore == 5 star
duron carter = frosh == 4/5 star
sazenbacher = junior == hartline type
outside of that, I'm not too sure what they have, I think they are thin at the pos. but I could be wrong, I don't care to look it up somewhere.
James Jackson (I think is his name) is pretty fast too; he could be a slot. But I'm with you the guy to watch is Posey. Not only is this guy a track guy, but he's, I think "6'3" with pretty good hands.
My HS played vs James Jackson last year and he didnt impress me, he had only straight line speed
Posey is an outside receiver. I don't know who their other outside guy will be. Dane, maybe?
I wish that they would also lose a couple of offensive linemen, Terrelle Pryor, and then a couple of key guys on defense. Then they would find out what it's like to be us.
To lose your academic standing at tOSU doesnt that officially make you retarded?
I find it interesting that you question someone else's intelligence in a sentence written like that one.
correctly notes the deficiency in your sentence structure, it is also true that failing at OSU does, if fact, require an absence of intelligence that many scholars characterize as retarded.
However, in Ohio, they simply call it below average.
Ohio State students call it probation.
The OSU AD doesn't call it anything, they just arrange to expel the "tutor" who was paid to take the test but flunked.
What does it take to have academic issues at THAT school. Not very impressive.
Thats what happens when you cannot color between the lines.
OSU is not the worst school in the Big Ten no matter what you guys want to think. It's actually middle of the road.
your posts make me question whether you're a true michigan fan or just retarded.
Come on guys, it's not that easy. Sometimes the cow doesn't WANT to be milked.
Actually, OSU has raied the bar recently, I think it was 04 or 05 when they raised the standards there. I know they don't come close to UM academically, but they aren't as bad as they used to be.
Although is completely anecdotal, I think it's also fairly telling. I had a friend my first 2 years at UM who was from Ohio. She was premed. She was really struggling with classes, getting a lot of really poor grades in important pre-reqs. I'm sure she was well below a 3.0, since a B was about the best grade she got. Her parents got sick of paying out of state tuition for her to get such poor grades, so they told her she needed to transfer to an in-state school or she had to pay her own way. She couldn't so she obliged.
She picked OSU (it is, after all, the highest rated school in Ohio) and after retaking a lot of the classes she did so poorly in at Michigan, was still able to graduate on time. She never got less than an A at OSU and would always tell us how ridiculously easy her classes we in comparison.
I know, I know, this is just one experience. But this one girl said the difference (at least in the chem and bio departments) was night and day compared to Ann Arbor.
OSU may be the highest rated national university in Ohio, but it is surely not the most prestigious academic institution in the state. The number of superior liberal arts schools in Ohio is impressive.
Fair enough, but it's very hard to compare the tiny schools against major research institutions. I'm not saying that OSU is better than the Kenyons or Denisons of the world, just that they are in a different league. That said, her motivation to go back to Ohio was financial, and those liberal arts schools are about the same price as out-of-state UM, especially since scholarships are rarely given to transfers.
Very true. Subtracting hyperbole and irrational fandom, I think most reasonable people would find your friend's conclusion (Michigan is hard, OSU not so much) applicable to most large state schools. Michigan is a very good school. OSU is a good to mediocre school, depending on the area of study.
And I believe the plural of Kenyon is Kenyi.
Case Western, while expensive, is quite the major Science/Medical research institution. The Cleveland Clinic is a hell of a place. That's probably you're best overall school in Ohio.
Honestly though, I think some of the differences between schools are blown out of proportion. I started off at Tulane and transferred to Michigan. I'd almost argue that Tulane was more difficult. The classes were smaller, and the curves were much less generous (MCDB major FWIW). But I don't even think they're ranked in the top 50.
Question though, did she retake alot of the classes at a branch or the main campus? The branches are like high school compared to the main campus. I once compared the same class tests between the 2 and wow what a difference.
Orignially from a Bucknuts article.
"According to our sources, wide receiver Ray Small is also not with the team for the time being and his status is very much up in the air for the 2009 season. There is a chance that Rose and Small could return to the team by the USC game on Sept. 12, but that seems like a long-shot at best at this point.
Rose and Small are not even permitted to train with the team at the current time and their scholarship aid has been pulled."
More likely that they would have their scholarships revoked for some type of malfeasance than for simply performing poorly.
"There appears to be good news for heralded Buckeyes running back recruit Jaamal Berry, who will have his drug-possession charges dropped as long as he completes a six-month diversion program. Berry was arrested for felony marijuana possession June 11 in Miami but had the charge later reduced to a misdemeanor...." We knew.
Relevant Small information, though:
"I also checked in with Ohio State about wide receiver/punt returner Ray Small, whose status for training camp and the start of the season is up in the air. Team spokeswoman Shelly Poe wrote in an e-mail that Small's status has not changed to date and that as of right now, the senior is expected to report with the rest of the team Sunday for camp."
I hear those history classes at osu are killer
They can't be so hard, history didn't begin until Tressel was hired.
I deleted this after posting it in the wrong location first time.
