|5 days 10 hours ago||Who leaves?||
OSU's offense is going to be crazy young/inexperienced next year. The majority of starters are graduating, and so are some important two-deep players.
Plus, Braxton has been rumored to consider leaving in order to provide for his newborn.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||"Aren't they filled in defensive backfield[?]"||
Well, both of our starting safeties (Corey Brown and CJ Barnett (+Christian Byrant)) are seniors, and Bradley Roby has already told Urban that he's declaring after this season.
So that leaves Doran Grant as the only returning starter in next year's secondary. Armani Reeves and Gareon Conley will both get first crack at replacing Roby next year, but I think the safety spots are wide open. Vonn Bell will probably be a favorite to win one of the safety spots, and Tyvis Powell and Ron Tanner are both currently listed in the 2-deep.
I wouldn't say they are completely filled in the defensive backfield, but they aren't in a dire situation either.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Maybe.|
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The full quote if you're interested.||
“Well, I guess I’m a little biased, but I think we’d wipe the field with both of them, but that's just my bias speaking.” the Buckeye wide receiver said. “We’re going to go ahead and handle our business and play our best game every week. We know that we just have to go out and execute. If we go out and execute for a full game, there’s nobody in the country that we feel can hang with us when we’re executing the way that we can."
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The same Gerg...||
Just wanted to say, that same "GERG" has made a defense that was giving up 491 ypg and into one giving up 333 ypg... in the middle of the season.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||"Allegedly"||
He was trying to start fights with people around him, so the state polices were asked to escort him out. The gentleman refused, started to swing at the police and hence they maced him.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I don't understand the implosion...||
The man just asked a hypothetical question. In 2008, OSU had a 5th-year senior in Todd Boeckman and due to mediocre play he was eventually replaced by a highly-touted true freshman as well.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Interestingly...||
OSU is gaining more yards per play by rushing (8.4 ypr) than passing (6.4 ypp).
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Roby's suspension||
Urban said Roby's suspension could be increased depending on the outcome of the investigation, but as of now it is at least 1 game. The Bloomington PD did reduce the charges to disorderly conduct from assault though (I think because video evidence showed that Roby wasn't the aggressor).
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Allegedly*||
The video was inconclusive on whether Hyde actually physically harmed the "victim." The bouncer said Hyde pretty much just "smushed" her face to push her away rather than a full-forced slap.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Does that matter?||
I honestly don't know. My believe is that if an assailant initates contact than you have the right to defend yourself, regardless of the difference in strength.
Ideally, Hyde should've just taken her hit and walked away, but legally isn't this a case of self-defense? MGoLawyers?
|19 weeks 4 days ago||Unrelated incidents||
It probably should be mentioned that these were unrelated incidents. Hyde is being investigated for a battery that occured in Columbus at 2AM Saturday.
Roby was charged with disorderly conduct early Sunday morning in Bloomington, IN. Apparently he was asked to leave the bar, and refused. The bouncers got involved and the police were called.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Yes.||
I believe the speculated plan is to slowly develop THJ this season, and if he proves to be a productive player then the Knicks will try to move JR Smith for other pieces.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||Or...||
|23 weeks 4 days ago||No, but||
Carlos Hyde came pretty close last year with 970 yards (5.2 yards/carry) even though he missed almost 3 games because of a sprained MCL.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Impact Freshmen||
The only freshman OSU has that will probably make an instant impact on offense is Jalin Marshall. Urban is hoping to use a combination of Jordan Hall and Marshall in the "pivot position" made famous by Percy Harvin.
However, Jalin has expressed interest in trying out for QB first before making the switch to WR.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||-10 score||
Choosing a comment with a -10 score is probably not the best indicator of the fanbase.
|27 weeks 16 hours ago||Not quite||
Perkins wasn't expected to be a starter.
Ryan Shazier, Curtis Grant and Joshua Perry have been the frontrunners for a while now. David Perkins, however, was still in the running to be Ryan Shazier's backup and heir-apparent.

Scandal and loyalty issues aside. Bobby Petrino did take two struggling programs and built them into BCS bowl contenders in 4 years.

|33 weeks 15 hours ago||During a 2001 trial...||
Charles Woodson was brought in to testify against an agent, Marion Darnell Jones, because it was believed that Jones provided Woodson with over $14,000 in "improper benefits" during the 1997 season.
The main pieces of evidences were receipts from Jones' company, "Summit Management" that showed the purchase of a $5,000+ fur coat that was gifted to Woodson's mother, a paid trip to Myrtle Beach for Woodson, and the a tuxedo bought for Woodson 2 weeks before his Heisman ceremony.
|33 weeks 19 hours ago||Team Up North||
Based on the schedule Urban put up in the locker room at the beginning of the season, I'm assuming it means "Team Up North."
|35 weeks 1 day ago||Not the best comparison.||
Kentucky's Class of 2012 - Rivals
Nerlens Noel (#1 C, #2 overall)
Alex Poythress (#2 PF, #8 overall)
Archie Goodwin (#5 SG, #14 overall)
Willie Cauley-Stein (#9 C, #40, overall)
While that is still an impressive recruiting class, its nothing compared to the class Calipari is bringing in this year:
Kentucky's Class of 2013 - Rivals
Julius Randle (#1 PF, #2 overall)
Aaron Harrison (#1 SG, #4 overall)
Andrew Harrison (#1 PG, #5 overall)
James Young (#2 SG, #10 overall)
Dakari Johnson (#1 C, #13 overall)
Marcus Lee (#5 PF, #18 overall)
On top of all that, UK is still in the running for the Andrew Wiggins (#1 SF, #1 overall), plus Poytress and Cauley-Stein have both announced that they're coming back for their sophomore season. On paper, this class has more talent than the Fab Five with or without Andrew Wiggins.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Bri'Onte Dunn||
It was a few weeks after Urban accepted the job. Meyer visited Dunn a couple days before he was scheduled to visit Michigan and basically told him that if Dunn took the visit, he would no longer hold his spot.

I think Clarett said that he acted on his own accord. At least that's what he claimed when he was in prison.

Most mocks have Hankins being taken in the top 10, and the 2nd DT behind Utah's Star Lotulelei.

|1 year 14 hours ago||Also rumored...||
Barry Alvarez is apparently open to coaching next season as well, or at the very least he hasn't ruled it out.
I think it a good move short-term. Paul Chryst essentially took half of the coaching staff with him to Pitt last year, so nobody on Wisconsin's current staff really has "seniority" to be named interim HC. Also, a lot of the quality HC candidates out there have already found new positions or decline to leave their current schools, so Alvarez would be hard-pressed to find a solid replacement this late in the game.
|1 year 2 days ago||I've watched a few of ND's game this year.||
Whenever ND needed a stop or a big play, Te'o showed up. I've seen Te'o make a clutch interception, a bone-crushing sack, or a 4th down tackle to seal games.
I know that Te'o numbers at LB are only slightly above-average, but it is the timing of his big plays that elevates him.
|1 year 5 days ago||Might get negged for this...||
I have an urge to defend Vrabel. Bill Belichick called Vrabel one of the smartest and the most versatile player he has ever coached. Vrabel was able to play OLB, ILB, DE, and TE for the Patriots, and is the only player in NFL history to have more than 6 receptions with a 100% TD rate (12 receptions for 12 TDs).
When they asked Belicheck what he thought about Vrabel's potential coaching career, he said that Vrabel could regurgitate defensive schemes the Patriots hadn't ran for 6 seasons. Also, that Vrabel's football knowledge was just downright impressive.
