Ohio State Recruiting

Oh boy, this doesn't seem too encouraging.

couple takeaways I got from it:

  • They're not budging much on their NIL philosophy. He noted how the players on the team are doing quite well with NIL, and they want to continue keeping NFL development and the brotherhood as their main selling points.
  • They're making a concerted effort to focus more on Ohio going forward (I think we've seen that with the slew of Ohio offers this month). They're still going to be involved nationally, but will move on quicker than they normally would have with a kid from Florida, for example, if that kid makes it known that NIL will be a major part of his recruitment.
  • Quote on Ohio recruiting that I'm sure will be very polarizing here: "This year we signed 8 of the top 9, so we're trying. Now in the NIL world, we kind of think that number should be higher. We're really going out of our way to spend more time in the state of Ohio, and try to find guys that maybe we don't think are as good here day 1, but a couple years in the program we see potential development in a guy that comes here for the right reasons."
If they're going to focus on Ohio more, they better put pressure on the state to implement spring football. Also, Saban's response to NIL is to devote a state of the art facility to all things NIL and Ryan Day is just going to stop recruiting national 5 stars. If this is really happening then Ohio State is going to keep falling further and further behind.

You mean a couple of takeaways Prof20, Brutus16 and BGSUBucksfan on Elevenwarriors got from it. Weird how after the first sentence your post is just a combination of their posts word for word lol 31A4A190-EBE4-40E9-9AB8-F275C2CC2C75.png1ADE0EA7-3214-4FFD-9CBA-D12CABEBC72E.png

I find it weird that you care so much, I watched the video. It's exactly as they described. This isn't a college essay and I don't have to cite my sources.
Calm down, weirdo. No one said you had to cite sources. I just find it absolutely hysterical you claimed it as your takeaways when it was in fact not your takeaways but just copying and pasting others’ words.

Happy does it in the debate forum all the time, he’s probably appropriate company for you.

Id rather be weird than too dumb to express my thoughts into words and have to copy and paste someone else’s words. But ironic coming from the guy having a meltdown over a college football team recruiting teenage boys. That’s pretty weird.

You’re already too dumb for that, I have yet to see you post anything remotely intelligent about sports. All you try and do is point and laugh at others and believe you’re the smarter person without ever any counter arguments or scheme suggestions. Just a complete effing moron honestly.

It’s not my fault you have poor reading comprehension. Which makes sense you need to rely on copying and pasting others words.

Also it’s equally entertaining watching you lash out like a child for getting caught copying and pasting and passing it off as your own.

Nice job trying to deflect.

I find it ironic for somebody such as yourself accusing me of getting so upset about college football recruiting when in fact here you are posting on this same message board.

There was no deflection there.

There’s a huge difference between posting on a message board and having a month long meltdown about the level of OSU’s recruiting. There’s nothing ironic about that lol

Yes there was.

Also, what does it matter what content I post? If you’re so above it then why are you even here? For somebody who knows nothing about football to accuse someone else of melting down is just odd or me.

Dude you are a human Chernobyl - constant meltdown mode. You are always angry, you want OSU hoops to lose every game, you want Gene Smith fired, Chris Holtmann fired, and I'm sure Ryan Day as well. Maybe calm down. Every team, even an OSU team, might have a bad season once in a while.

Not gonna apologize for wanting to win at all costs. I see the trajectory of both programs and it isn’t good.
