Hey Matt, you guys gonna be any good in baseball this year?
He was at the airport when Urban called. Urban asked him if he would be interested and Clark said yes. Clark said he would think about visiting and the rest is history. If it wasn't for us going after him I doubt Urban would have found him. He was still flying under the radar and Florida was targeting higher level WR talent and they got those guys.
It was a strange ending for sure. It isn't often a recruit will spend time studying the WR routes we run, spend time at our bowl practices, come for an official visit, and then suddenly take us off his interest list after Urban called.
If anything, it was Florida pulling some shady stuff. There is absolutely no tolerance for that crap at Ohio State, and I can't imagine Clemson pulling that. Florida boosters, however, had better access to him (location) and were also the projected team to land Clark for the past month and a half. A few days before signing day was when it became clear that he was to sign with the Buckeyes. Clark, being a Florida native, likely had some admiration of Meyer growing up, as Meyer had coached quite a while down there.
Overall, after a great visit here, a familiar coach, and the opportunity to join an incredible recruiting class over here in Columbus, I'm certain it was fair play on our part.
We may have lost the battle......but not the war.
Haha, I wasn't even aware that we had a baseball team (just kidding). I don't follow really follow baseball--pros or collegiate. I assume that you would probably know more about the Buckeyes' baseball team than I do.
The only college baseball I've really watched was a few years ago in the College World Series. Omaha, is such a beautiful place. Did they move it to a dome or some other larger complex? Is it still in Omaha? Just curious.
He was a tricky kid to figure out. He was playing his cards very closely to his chest. Recruitment of 18 year old kids can be puzzling.
Wait, Suh is playing high school ball in MO right now? That Collins looks like a man amongst children out there. The competition may not be stiff, which explains for his mid-rating, but he could pan out (just like Adam Taylor) to be 5 star potential.
"I don't follow really follow baseball"
Well you should.
CWS moved down the hill a couple miles to the brand new TD Ameritrade park. No dome but a most excellent facility. B1G tourney will be here for two years starting this summer.
BTW, OSU is expected to challenge for the conf title this year. We'll see about that.
Hahaha. I'm more of a football nut, but I'll look into it. Do they air regular season games often on the B1G network, or would I have to attend the games in person? Regardless, it would be an enjoyable experience to follow this summer. You've got me interested now.
Is there any hype surround T-Mart's lil bro?
B1G baseball on TV? I wish! A few games pop up now and then. The conf tourney (last full week in May) will be on BTN.
Here's the routine...
Season begins next Friday. Loooong non-conf schedule. Conference play starts late March. It's all over come June when the NCAA tourney begins leading up to the CWS mid June.
Everyone plays three game series v someone over the weekend. Fri, Sat, Sun. That's the big deal. The weekend series. Every weekend a new opponent. The Friday night starting pitcher is "Da Man".
All season long there are mid week games as well. One or two. These are always non conference opponents. Lots of non conf games. Total of 55 scheduled games per season.
See you at the park!
Yeah he's plain nasty. Going to take some time to get up to D1 speed, but he's definitely got All American potential, imo.
I don't see why you got a "vacation" from your board, you seem like a good guy to me!
Agree on Collins.
As for that "vacation," I received it for some abrasive back-and-forth conflict over there on Bucknuts. They are all wonderful people, but can surely spit out some irritating and rash interactions. Some of them are casual bandwagoners. That isn't the real problem, but it's when they attempt to pose as the face of the university and program. That's where the trouble begins. They'll go off praising the SEC and emit only a SOFT dislike of michigan (a sin for Buckeye Nation). When you attempt to oppose their philosophy, they abruptly reject it and flame you for it. Like I said, many of them think theirselves are the "it" and the "man" over there, and that their opinion rises above all else. Therefore, you cannot express your own views over there. If you do, they'll gang up on you and persist to make you out to be the bad guy until you are banned. In my case, it was the most one-sided ban you can imagine. The staff did not look at both sides.
Also, I look to return with a more friendlier and accepting attitude. Thanks for your kindness over here, I greatly appreciate it.
One more thing: I never ever ever ever used a swear word over there, but I've been called atrociously horrible things. But, they won't get suspended because they continually brown-nose the staff.
Sounds like tBB
Going back to Adam Taylor I'm one of the crazy ones that likes him more then Newby
Goal in life is to make the Huskers Illustrated Hall Of Fame
Offense: QB Johnny Stanton
- It's hard not to go with the QB, even though Terrell Newby looks like a sure fire star. People like to saw he's Tebow like - and he is - but he REALLY reminds me of Rick Mirer at Notre Dame.
Defense: LB Marcus Newby
- Hearing a lot of good things about Gregory and god knows we need help up-front. However, this other Newby kid plays like he's possessed out there.
A boy, a Twitter page, and the aspiration that you follow him. It's what this country was founded upon.
You ain't crazy at all. There are allot of us.
I just pray that people don't give him the idiotic Johnny Football name....that drives me crazy
Ya id say its approaching 50 50 on this board. A lot of Taylor supporters
You know my heart is with Newby, but Taylor is growing on me. He is a sure thing, a safe pick to be productive. Newby has the wow factor that makes me angry football season is so far away.

I remember when people wanted Jojo Kemp instead of Taylor......
I think that was when we had less confidence in Newby.
Stylistically, if we were to get one back. I'd want it to be a player like Newby or JoJo.
The fact that we got BOTH Adam and Terrell has me over the moon. SERIOUS potential. It's like Georgia's RB class last year. Really similar.
Kid can flat out play. He'll play this year.
