from ohiostatebuckeyes.com quote on first day of spring football.... "Some notes and quotes and thoughts from the day:
Meyer said sophomore linebacker Curtis Grant “has to develop and he needs to be good.” Grant ran with the first team Wednesday as Storm Klein was limited in his activity. Meyer said a lot of people inside and outside of the program have asked him if the quarterbacks can throw and he said “yes they can. They can physically throw and I feel good about both,” in reference to returning starter Braxton Miller and junior Kenny Guiton. Meyer said sophomore receiver Devin Smith was “fast … a separator … a speed guy,” and he also said there has to be a “wow” factor from these guys [skill players]. He said schools like Ohio State should have at least two “wow” guys. Meyer said the pace and tempo of practice was all right for a first day, but that it will improve as the coaches get more practices behind them. He said the coaches had practice walk-throughs leading up to today and “they did a good job.” Meyer said the immediate needs for spring drills was to install the offense and to identify play makers. He said the offense should be installed in five or six practices."
Urban had the players who were slacking wearing lavender jerseys until a group (I forget their name) got offended..my solution is to have them wear maize and blue..that'll teach them!!! Someone forward this to Urban quickly lol
Have any of you been reading Bleacher Report. Seems they have some hang ups about Ohio State , if my observation of some of the tone of articles. What do you think? Even to the point of criticizing President Gee.
from bleacherreport.com comes Dr Saturdays comments on recruitment comments...."The Big Ten welcome wagon has officially left Columbus and nearly ran over new Ohio State coach Urban Meyer on its way out. Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio and Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema both publicly criticized Meyer's recruiting tactics after Meyer secured the nation's No. 4 class, according to Rivals, in just 65 days on the job. Bielema, especially, took issue with some of the tactics Meyer used to secure the class and called him on it." Comment is recruiting is more civilized in Big 10 than SEC, What do you thinki?
bleacherreport.com Tom Bielik Featured columinist say"For Meyer's spread attack to work, the Buckeyes need to find a big-time gamebreaker on offense with pure speed and open-field elusiveness. They don't have that on their roster (at least that we know of) or in their recruiting class.
That's where two prospects that are high on the Buckeyes come into play: Stefon Diggs (Olney, Md.) and Davonte Neal (Chaparral, Ariz.)."
