All Things Buckeyes

There is only 19 more days until our new years date with the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame and I am definitely craving some Buckeye football.  I for one cannot wait for the New Years Six Bowl Game.  The Fiesta Bowl will have nothing short of a spectacular show and I am hoping that it is a one-sided type in favor of the Scarlet and Gray.  It would put a meaningful grin onto Buckeye fans worldwide and it would cap off a season that didn’t go as planned.  Now, all Coach Urbs and company have to do is finish with a bang and finish so that the outgoing seniors and the NFL early entrees leave for greener pastures.

So if you have been living underneath a rock, we have a ton of talent that are both leaving and that are thinking about taking the leap to the next level.

Here is a list:

  • Joey Bosa, DL (Jr.)
  • Ezekiel Elliot, RB (Jr.)
  • Vonn Bell, DB (Jr.)
  • Eli Apple, DB (Rs So.)
  • Cardale Jones, QB (Rs Jr.)
  • Taylor Decker, OL (Sr.)
  • Adolphus Washington, DT (Sr.)
  • Chase Farris, OL (Sr.)
  • Jacoby Boren, OL (Sr.)
  • Michael Thomas, WR (Rs Jr.)
  • Braxton Miller, H-Back/WR (Sr.)
  • Darron Lee, LB (Rs So.)
  • Joshua Perry, LB (Sr.)
  • Tyvis Powell, DB (Jr.)
  • Tommy Schutt, DL (Sr.)
  • Nick Vannett, TE (Sr.)
  • Cam Williams, LB (Sr.)

Now this isn’t a confirmed list of the players who are leaving.  This is just to show you that we are about to look different on both sides of the ball.  This isn’t as alarming though because we have one of the best recruiters in the land in Coach Urban Meyer and not to mention he has a ton of All-Star recruiters as well so we will be in good hands.  Reload and replenish.  Reload and replenish.  Now with who you might ask?

Here is another list of potential recriuts:

  • Dexter Lawrence, DT (North Carolina)
  • Rashard Lawrence, DT (Louisiana)
  • Rashan Gary, DT (New Jersey)
  • Dwayne Haskins, QB (Maryland)
  • Binjimen Victor, WR (Florida)
  • Nate Craig-Meyers, WR (Florida)
  • Donnie Corley, WR (Michigan)
  • Jahsen Wint, SS (New York)
  • Demetris Robertson, LB (Georgia)

There are countless more recruits but these are the ones that the Buckeyes have a punchers chance at getting on National Signing Day.  We still have a while until that happens and anything can happen.  Here is to another potentially successful recruiting season.

Bringing In A New Era:

After this bowl season, we will have to say goodbye to Coach Ash and he will be on the opposing sideline next season for Big Ten foe, Rutgers.  Coach Ash will be sorely missed and his recruiting prowess will be too.  Don’t fret Buckeye fans because Urban Meyer once again pulled a rabbit out of his hat and scored a suitable replacement in Greg Schiano.  Former Rutgers Head Coach.  Which is ironic.  Coach Schiano is also the former head coach of the Tampa Bay Bucs and after some time off he will join the Buckeyes and light a fire underneath his players.  I cannot think of a better coach than Coach Schiano.  Sure he is known as a control freak and his players in Tampa eventually tuned him out due to his personality, but he is a huge hire.  He will prove that he can move past that and he will also become an asset in the recruiting game.  I cannot wait to see who he can score in the recruiting scene.  Here is to a year or two worth in the Schiano Era.
