Very impressive recruiting considering ESPiN

    Howdy all... First post for me on this board & newbie to the site. I've been a Buckeye all my life & hope this board is as fun as some of the others I've enjoyed over the years. GO BUCKS!

    To the topic at hand tho:

    In a year where the negative publicity coming outta ESPiN, SI, and other media outlets all more interested in peddling negative perceptions instead of "stupid" things like "facts", Tressel & his coaches/assistants have done a remarkable job with recruiting & staying the course. If the recent allegations did in fact effect any recruits decision, as seems to be the case with Bemoll, one has to consider what they will think when the NCAA clears OSU. I'm certain other coaches around the nation capitalized on the negative press in recruiting their kids away from OSU and toward their school. There's already been a few kids who've admitted to hearing from other coaches that they "don't want to go to OSU... they're facing sanctions." What will be interesting is if the NCAA clears OSU as expected, won't those coaches naturally lose some credibility with the kids they convinced? Trust could well be broken and the recruits may indeed start 2nd guessing their decisions & feeling a bit duped. Just some stuff to ponder...

    As this is my first post on here, I figured I'd commemorate it Buckeye Style with some of the sweetest words ever penned:

    Oh come let's sing Ohio's praise
    And songs to Alma Mater raise
    While our hearts rebounding thrill
    With joy which death alone can still
    Summer's heat or winter's cold
    The seasons pass the years will roll
    Time and change will surely (truly) show
    How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!

    These jolly days of priceless worth
    By far the gladdest days on earth
    Soon will pass and we not know
    How dearly we love Ohio
    We should strive to keep thy name
    Of fair repute and spotless fame
    So in college halls well grow
    And love thee better ... OHIO! Though age may dim our mem'ry's store
    We'll think of happy days of yore
    True to friend and frank to foe
    As sturdy sons of Ohio
    If on seas of care we roll
    Neath blackened sky or barren shoal
    Thoughts of thee bid darkness go
    Dear Alma Mater...OHIO!

    Welcome aboard go_bucks.
    By the way, we have our starting running backs already on the roster.

    Thank you & Agreed. Heck, Haw is supposed to be one he11 of a TB. Pair him up with Pittman and thats a nice 1-2 punch right there. Throw Teddy Ballgame into the mix at TB once in a while for a run now & again to the outside & I like the backfield.

    Hope Wells lives up to his reputation & billing. Seems like a good kid.

    Go Bucks!

    Good one...

    I am new, too. I understand what you are saying about the censor lists...

    because I am a red(scarlet)blooded American, I feel it is my civic duty to enjoy the rights that so many have given their lives for me to enjoy...Here goes:
