Can't believe this hasn't been started yet. Shane's LOI is in; first one.

Gotta love the fact that 4 of 6 of our early enrollees are from the state of Ohio....  I guess they wanted to get out of that state as soon as possible !!!!  Thats fantastic.    Anyway, enjoy signing day.  Go Blue.

I obviously realize that they in fact were hardly punished at all for such major violations, that's been a known fact everywhere except Columbus for some time.  But what's wrong with a little rant about it on the board on a day where the lack of punishment couldn't be more obvious?

Also, "adorable"?  Odd choice of word

Wow, what a riveting interview with Jordan Cunningham. 

"So, I'm supposed to say where I'm going now?"


I know these are kids and they're out of their element but come on, at least be prepared.

Just what is it about a coach who has been a great success at every head coaching job he's had that is telling you he's going to "implode" at an already very successful program with in-state access to a large pool of football talent? Especially given the fact that the university he now works for has made it abundantly clear that they have no compunction about cheating, and know the NCAA is a pathetically toothless organization?

I love our recruiting class, we have a bunch of blue collar 'get-after-it' players. Even tho Ohio got its #1 or close to #1 class we will have all the pieces in place to throw down with them. We will beat Ohio. So, Ohio enjoy Von Bell, and OIe Miss can enjoy Treadwell, Tunsil, ECT. We will enjoy making ya'll bloody.

Trying to be subjective and looking at the classes, Ohio State's OL recruiting the past two years has been atrocious. This makes me smile.

OSU has a great class and they closed well. But they're higher in the rankings because their 4 stars are in the top 100, and ours are in the 100-250 range. How meaningful of a distinction is that? Well, we'll find out. But I tend to think that our consecutive top-5ish classes are close enough that coaching will be the determining factor.
