Hi!, I am coming to Dayton, but stopping at the mall and the Horseshoe. You know teenagers, you have to offer them something at this point, just so they will keep you company on long trips...its about 700 miles...it won't be too much longer when they will say..."sorry dad...got to see our girlfriends, Betty and Sue".:0 :) GO BUCKS!!!

Polaris is right off of 70. Another great place is Easton Center. That place is amazing. it's not too far from the Columbus airport and Gahana. Easton is about 10 minutes from our oldest daughters home.
Kids grow up so fast. I was a mess when our oldest went off to OSU. Cried like a baby and kept going up and sleeping in her room for the first month. It was easier with the second one. They are both in Columbus and only a little over an hour away so we can visit often. I'm there every home game during football season. Take turns staying with them. The oldest has been married 20 months. They met at OSU. Said there kids some day will go to OSU. Hope I'm around to see that.
Well have a safe trip and enjoy Columbus. Go Bucks

I am a solid Ohio State fan! And any time that OSU recruits an outstanding player the better! It is very important to get the best talent around as OSU's recruiting for 2008 is second to none. OSU fans seem to lack the luster, as OSU has not been on top for a while. OSU fans seem to lack the confidence needed.

I like Dre Kirkpatrick, Darius Winston, and C.J. Barnett (already recruited by OSU). When you have talent like these guys, you're unstoppable!

Recruiting dead weight is a no-no!

2009:
Dorian Bell LB
C.J. Barnett DB
Melvin Fellows DE
Jordan Whiting LB
Jamie Wood DB

2008:
Mike Adams OL
Michael Brewster OL
DeVier Posey WR
Terrelle Pryor QB
Garrett Goebel DT
Etienne Sabino LB
Lamaar Thomas ATH

Nathan Williams DE
Willie Mobley DE

2007:
Eugene Clifford DB
Donnie Evege DB
Daniel Herron RB
Cameron Heyward DT
Jermale Hines LB
Nate Oliver DB

Brian Rolle LB
Brandon Saine RB
James Scott DB

2006:

Robert Rose DE
Chris Wells RB

2005:
Alex Boone OL

I'm merely a fan, somewhat knowledgable about the game, but far from an expert.

Where I'm from the nearby college had a run and shoot program under June Jones. And something called four wide receivers. The coach would play the best players (similar to USC) and for, from memory, the past eight years their quarterback had the best statistics in the nation. Try defending against an accurate throwing quarterback with smarts! Try defending against four receivers. It just can not be done!

The run opened up the passing game and kept the opposition honest. You score big on the passing game yardage-wise. If you have four, four mind you, good receivers, no defender can intercept or stop the pass!

Part of the trick is when the defender and your wide receiver went out into the backfield, some how the throw would always arch high and come down into the receiver's waiting hands and away from the defender! Both men running and the receiver with his back to the quarterback makes the catch in front of him away (out of reach) from the receiver.

I like OSU. I believe in your program, players, and coach. I feel that what loyalty is, is when you're down and people believe in you. I believe in OSU in this manner.

I am not an expert, but you've got the best person that any college team could have as quarterback. I think that a Terrelle Pryor comes around very seldom and OSU is very fortunate to have finally recruited him.

Would it be possible for OSU to build around Terrelle Pryor this year and for the next three?

Looking at your recruits, while exceptional, if I were your financial backer $$$(hundreds of millions), I would donate all of that money and more to see that OSU has an even better recruitment two to three times better than you have now!

Even if your recruitment is in the elite top five in the nation, your recruitment of Terrelle Pryor, Mike Adams, Michael Brewster, and DeVier Posey DESERVE more!

You want to keep the momentum going and you want to have a program that is second to none in the nation. You want to see that you are the best for many years to come. In the top five for the next 10 to 15 years and the national champions or contenders this year and for the next four or five.

It's that kind of winning attitude that makes a great school and team!

If you plan for greatness and your fans support you, you will attain that greatness!

With the front four players in the nation, second only to USC, how can any other team come against you?

Terrelle Pryor, Mike Adams, Michael Brewster, and DeVier Posey are a dream come true!

I would continue to recruit supporting key players for 2008 to help the above four attain their maximum potential and I would build my team around these guys.

If OSU stops its recruiting effort for 2008 and thinks that this is the best that they can do, then OSU is not really a winner. When you're doing well, you've got to go for the jugular and do even more!

Stopping at your current progress in recruiting just will not do. I am not a football expert, but from what I can see you need to recruit more top quality four and five star players. Guys who rank in the top 5 to 10 in their position, if you want to compete with the best! USC, Florida, and Georgia!

You still need a supporting cast for Terrelle Pryor, this year and for the next three! You've got the guy and now you've got to make him look like a winner!

Go undefeated for the year up until the final bowl game in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012 and beyond.

If you do this that guy will never regret his decision to come to OSU to play!

More five star players, yeah! Perhaps, four more and a good running back to boot! How about some wide receivers too!

How about some wide receivers, too, to keep DeVier Posey from feeling all alone! The more the merrier!
