In the video if you look for it Dan Gibbs is the Right Guard and LTT is the Left Tackle with that third group, so that's where they are.

I graduated last year and still have a bunch of buddies on the team.
They're not going to roll over for Harrison, they have the talent to hang with them. And Harrison players and fans have went out of their way to talk trash on social media and tell them how much they suck, they aren't taking Fenton seriously at all. Perfect recipe for an upset!

It wasn't Putnam was it? I know he was at U of D and left recently.
The fact that he tried to get Webb to transfer totally fits Putnam's mold too.

There were two more from Fenton. Quinton Mandle (TE) and Tyler Tokarsky (LS).
Quinton just left Saturday to report to camp and Tyler said that he didn't get invited to camp this year, so he reports after camp is done at the end of August.

Kyle Kalis is #67.
And I know the numbers of a few walk-ons coming in, but that's probably not too interesting.

And not to mention that he didn't start the game, he subbed in when the starter tore his ACL. So in all likelihood he didn't take many first-team reps all week either.
Oh, and that game was before Labor Day, so he hadn't actually set foot in high school as a freshman yet.
He seemed to look pretty decent when they throttled DCC in the state championship game though...

Alex Anzalone will not be the difference between a strong OSU and a floundering one. He could, however, be a real pain in the ass for the next 4/5 years and it definitely helps our cause with him going elsewhere.

A steal of a 7th round pick, he's going to do great things for that team. Good for him, he deserves this. One of my favorite players ever.

With three players from my school walking-on this fall, I can say that they've told me beyond a doubt they must take 12 credit hours at a minimum in the Fall and Winter semesters. They try to keep it close to 12 in the Fall for obvious reasons, and then have 16 or so in the Winter.
They try to take ~6 credit hours during the spring or summer term to keep pace, I think they said they try to graduate them in 3 1/2 years if they can so that they're not scrambling at the tail end of their senior year to meet graduation requirements. If they're redshirting, this allows them to work on their masters for that last year or year and a half.

Havng a return trip is in the contract between the conferences...it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to announce a single game against a Pac-12 school only to schedule another Pac-12 school for a home-and-home again in the near future.

Talk about contradicting oneself...
Last time I checked, 11 (million) - 10 (million) = 1 (million). That's if the project were to be completed solely with this year's projected surplus, which is positive. that's not a deficit if the net result is still positive. And as you said, these things aren't planned overnight so the project wouldn't be funded entirely by this year's profit. Even if they did begin funding it with this year's profit they surely wouldn't use all of it, and would still have a substantial profit margin.
And if you think that the cash made from this game doesn't at least partially go towards that project, you're incredibly ignorant.
To say that renovations to the facility where the football team spends the vast majority of its time are a waste of $10 million dollars is another ignorant statement. If we want to continue reeling in elite recruits, we need to stay on par with or above our competition, and state-of-the-art facilities are one of the major attractions to many, many recruits. The renovations will pay dividends in the future, there's no doubt about that.
Although yes, I would have liked to have the band at the game, it's not the end of the world and the expenses saved won't just go to the Dave Brandon Strippers and Blow Foundation, they'll go towards something beneficial to the program. Sure you might not agree with some of the things he's done for the program, but he's modernized the athletic department and done substantially more good than bad for it. If you think not too far back, an athletic director in the past by the last name of Canham often made 'radical' and unpopular choices at the time, including hiring an Ohio boy with a goofy last name, but you don't see anyone badmouthing him anymore.
EDIT: Wow, didn't realize how long that turned out. Sorry to everyone, but having talked to the man once in the past I respect him and I find it difficult to tolerate relatively clueless people bad-mouthing him because he made the decision to not bring the band to a game.

Don't believe me then, I don't have to validate what I've been told to you.
But as the gentleman above me said, you're rumormongering just as much as I supposedly am. Maybe you're right, and Mr. Brandon only took the job to further his own career and suck every penny out of the program and the student athletes only to eventually leave and organize a military coup to take over the Midwest, one state at a time.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Well actually I've heard that||
Well actually I've heard that there's going to be a ~$10 million dollar renovation to the front of Schembechler Hall in the not-so-distant future, so maybe $400K does make a difference and *shocker* Dave Brandon knows what the hell he's doing. Contrary to popular belief, money does NOT in fact grow on trees, especially $10 million dollars worth.
I don't know about you, but I'd rather have my school get state-of-the-art facilities for the football program for the foreseeable future than have our fight song play after a touchdown in what will inevitably be drowned out by fans anyway.

Judging by the rate at which comments are coming in on this thread and the composition of them, there's considerably less RAGE today.

OSU's OLine definitely looks vulnerable in pass protection. Hopefully we can use our smaller, quicker DLine to exploit that.
Miller is sporadic, making great throws interspersed with awful ones. He should be fine, but if he gets hurt though, they might be in trouble with Guiton.
Overall, I don't think it would be crazy to predict 8-10 wins for them this year.

Well, he did say his visit was a 10 out of 10, so it's not like we're out of it, but he did just spend a week in Tallahasee.
