15.Jan.2014 General Discussion
Some things I’m hearing:
Luke Del Rio will be transferring to OSU. That would give OSU 7 QBs on the roster. Seems like overkill. Riley using quantity to make up for quality?
Kohton Miller is the carrot being dangled in front of Beav fans by the recruiting sites. He likely will not sign with OSU, but since there is a 5% chance they’re playing it up for subscriptions. This is sad.
Riley apparently didn’t know Skotte and his dad had arranged an interview to talk to him. From Mamma Machado: Riley said, “hmmm, I wonder if that is what it is about….”
Again, pretty sad.
The number of commitments and their ranking are both down year over year. This could be an anomaly and there’s still time for it to change. In general the class looks weak, and I haven’t heard anything about the staff working hard on recruiting or being aggressive. So, it seems like the same ol’ on that front. They will get a combination of low hanging fruit and mid-tier players and have to “coach them up” (with a coach who has semi checked out). Correct me if I’m not seeing it accurately.
Also, AngryBeavs is up for sale. I’m in no rush to sell it and will keep the current, slow pace if I don’t get a strong offer, but I when being honest with my output it has declined over the past few years (I thought it was due to medical issues, but the drive isn’t returning). Fact is it’s a lot of work running a blog, and when your passions lie elsewhere it starts to become more of a drag than a blast. I keep hoping something changes with that, but it’s starting to feel a lot like dating a lame girlfriend. For things to change this regime would have to change. That would ignite everyone. But everyone is content that “that ain’t happening unless you write a check, Angry” blah blah blah. I feel like I’m repeating myself too much these days (and possibly being overly negative out of sheer boredom with the lack of news/excitement around the program), and I could be spending that time more productively. So, if anyone is interested email me.
