In Soviet Wisconsin, Bo Ryan tells you where to transfer!
Bad PR... so easy to cause, so hard to fix.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||I thought I read Barrett out||
I thought I read Barrett out performed Shane at the Dallas camp (but I could be wrong).
I've heard talk of OSU taking one of the Ohio QBs this summer, but it seems like they have limited spots.

Obviously, he loves the big guy xoxo
|3 years 14 weeks ago||I'm actually proud of||
I'm actually proud of twitterverse. This was 4 days ago and nobody has given a shit about it. People are finally ignoring Brooks.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Are there 1 stars? I've||
Are there 1 stars? I've never seen anything lower than a 2 star.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||He's obviously no Christian||
He's obviously no Christian Hackenberg.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Pretty sure Lenzelle Smith||
Pretty sure Lenzelle Smith will start at the 2, considering he was the starter this year. Find it a little odd that a Buckeye fan wouldn't know that.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Matta is 16-3 against||
Matta is 16-3 against Michigan.
Cooper was 2-10-1 (LOL). Let's say 2-10.
That would mean Matta has to go 16-80 to become John Cooper.
So that would be 77 consecutive loses. I think some where around 20 loses, they'd blow up their arena.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||You should laugh at Ohio fans||
You should laugh at Ohio fans who are doubting Matta. Actually, ignore the last 4 words of the previous sentence.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Average minutes are||
Average minutes are deceiving, especially when you don't play every game.
In the 3 games against us, they played a total of 7 minutes (mostly in the BTT blow out).
|3 years 14 weeks ago||zero, since we can't give him||
zero, since we can't give him a scholly.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||So we're now making fun of||
So we're now making fun of other teams for having players that never played transfer out?
|3 years 14 weeks ago||dammit... was hoping for a||
dammit... was hoping for a Brian photobomb.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||I support the spirit of what||
I support the spirit of what Ace was trying to do, but I can't, in good conscience, support this sort of mathematical chicanery.
"If you combine OSU's class, with another lower rated class, you get a class with a lower average!"
I think Ohio's class is supposed to be pretty small. I have no doubt it'll be very good, but it probably won't pass ours in most ratings (for what it's worth).
|3 years 14 weeks ago||I agree. Unfortunately, it||
I agree. Unfortunately, it will fall on deaf ears. I wish I could say we're better than Ohio in this regard, but I'm not seeing it. I looked into some of the tweets to Bosa, hoping they were "fake" fans, but they definitely were not.
Let's face it. All fan bases have asshats. The bigger the fan base, the more the asshats. Maybe our asshat percentage is 5% compared to Ohio's 10%, but that's still a lot of asshats.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||That sounds like too much||
That sounds like too much work for an Ohio fan.
Unfortunately, there are idiots like @stevekotarski who seems like a Michigan fan... just a really stupid one.
Anyway, we weren't getting him, but sucks that we represented so poorly, especially since he comes from a pretty good football high school and he might go to Ohio.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||True. Like I said, it's not||
True. Like I said, it's not totally a bad thing. Unfortunately, I don't think Gardner is as good, and he's not getting the number of reps that Pryor did at Ohio. He's also not throwing to Posey and Sanzen..whatever. Yet.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Yea... it's really||
Yea... it's really embarrassing. I assume this happens at every school (or every school that cares about recruiting), but I wish it wouldn't happen to us.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Think Gardner looked bad. I||
Think Gardner looked bad. I discount the running because it's easy to run with authority when you can't be tackled. it's also hard on the defense to pull up and "tag" someone down.
I basically think Gardner is Pryor-lite (minus the off field issues). This can be both a good thing (long strider, good in the open field), and a bad one (odd throwing motion, questionable decisions).
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Joey Bosa loved it. He||
Joey Bosa loved it. He doesn't want to leave, or go back "down south". He'll be back as soon as he can.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Isn't that some sort of 15||
Isn't that some sort of 15 yard penalty to start the game? I thought somebody (maybe USC) did that intentionally recently.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||I wouldn't read too much into||
I wouldn't read too much into it. It's easy to run when you're not allowed to be tackled.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Ace, any truth to Bosa||
Ace, any truth to Bosa staying longer in Columbus? Seems like he's still there.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||this would suck... but what||
this would suck... but what can you do?
|3 years 15 weeks ago||You can read the same||
You can read the same complaint/running joke on OSU boards about Michigan. That's what makes the rivalry fun.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Let's talk about his a year||
Let's talk about his a year from now. It's very early and there's plenty of school and test dates left.
edit: my bad, I thought this was about the 2013 class.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||That was my initial||
That was my initial impression about foster, except then Foster tweeted an apology to Ohio State and Brian and others pointed out that Foster isn't being recruited by any of the other regional powers.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Cool story bro? Too bad about||
Cool story bro?
Too bad about Butler. Seems like that would have been a good fit.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Yahoo actually got it from an||
Yahoo actually got it from an NCAA source. OSU had already reported it.

-1 blogger points for writing an entire section about what SportsByBrooks said ... especially after he recanted.
