Right, because it's not like the kid's high school coach has any motivation to downplay his injuries. Not like he migh want to avoid any questions about whether he rushed he kid back after the first time he blew out his knee, thus contributing to he second knee injury.
Let's review the timeline of events:
1. Dean commits to OSU.
2. December 2013: Dean tears ACL. No big deal for OSU (see e.g. Barrett, JT).
3. Fall 2014: Dean comes back for senior year, plays all season.
4. December 2014: Dean tears his meniscus during his final game. Apparently the same knee as he previously injured.
5. January 2015, Dean early enrolls at OSU. This is the first time that OSU's physicians have been allowed to examine him. During his first week on campus, OSU's doctors determine he is medically unable to play football and refuse to clear him. Dean tweets about needing a meniscus transplant.
6. March/April 2015: Dean's coach publicly attacks OSU for hardshipping Dean, and claims (but does not seem to have provided copies) to have a second opinion from Dr. Andrews that Dean will be fine after a bit of rehab.
7. Dean goes to Auburn. It's unclear whether Auburn's doctors have medically cleared him, or whether they've even seen his MRIs.

I had season tickets in the row behind the guy on the left. He didn't know anything about football, spent the entire season begging cameramen to put him on TV, and sat on his hands when he wasn't being shown. We used to throw gummy bears at his wig to see if we could get them to stick.

Motive is not one of the elements that the prosecution must prove. It helps create a narrative for the jury, but outside of that, it's not really important.

McCullough has been rumored to be a gray shirt since he first committed. See e.g. http://thebuckeyebattlecry.com/recruiting/fbrecruiting/liam-mccullough-i... ("That’s three verbals in three days...although this one is being identified by some as a 'gray shirt.'")

I believe it was a mix of Florida's policy and Meyer's philosophy. If I remember, he was quite critical of the practice, especially when kids were flat out cut from the team.

Or it says that sports radio is a medium that thrives on manufactured controversy. Historically, Meyer hasn't oversigned. If you look at his tenure in Florida, he averaged 23.33 players per year. That was 2nd to last in the SEC, and would have been 5th in the B1G during that period. http://www.waitingfornextyear.com/2011/11/urban-meyer-ushers-in-a-comple...
It makes no sense for Meyer to cut a 4* prospect before signing day, and before the kid had even been on the field to see what he can do. The simpler explanation is that the kid blew out his knee and is unable to perform. As for the long snapper, grayshirting, while not ideal, isn't that rare. For instance, Jeremy Clark at Michigan.

The medical team made the decision on January 12, which is way before OSU knew how many kids it would actually sign. Moreover, Dean was tweeting about a meniscus transplant in January. It sucks, but the kid's career is over.

I don't think anyone truly expects a national championship threepeat. I don't think we'll ever see that with the playoff system. That said, I think OSU will continue to dominate the B1G for the foreseeable future. MSU has peaked, Nebraska just fired a coach who went 9-3 for one who went 5-7, Wisconsin is Wisconsin, and Michigan is in the beginning stages of its third rebuilding since 2008.

Dean was tweeting about a meniscus transplant in January. Unfortunately, OSU can't discuss specific medical issues due to FERPA and HIPPAA , meaning that we're relying on an upset teenager and his high school coach to give us medical information. I can understand Dean's unhappiness at being told his career is over. Dean probably expected to play in the NFL, and to be told that's not going to happen has to be tough.

And are you basing your medical opinion on the extensive examination you've conducted, or simply that it's Urban Meyer?

I think at least two quarterbacks see significant time this fall for OSU. Maybe all three, depending on Braxton's shoulder.

OSU's defense in 2012 was horrendous. Average to bad defenses don't put the starting fullback in at middle linebacker because he's the best tackler on the team.

I'm going to disagree with you about Meyers; he had to completely rebuild the O-line and the defense.
