Relax Columbia is aways away from St. Louis.
Hopefully, the visit from OSU coaches yesterday sealed the deal!
there is some pretty good chinese food in the CBUS. pretty good, now.
The Father, The Son... well, it's the
The Holy Trinity... as I see it.
somebody tell him his strength and conditioning won't include chinese food. the team nutritionist will see to that. the only thing he can eat is meeshitagain players and whatever leftovers Hoke leaves on the field... which would be none.

I think it is hilarious and also sad that people hang on everything a recruit says or does and trys to analyze it......i saw crap on twitter where some OSU fans were actually directly tweeting Elliot saying "please come to OSU". really?
is everyone really analyzing a tweet about missing chinese food in St Louis? C'mon Man.
Sure, it might be mildly entertaining to banter about it but some people take it too far. This isn't directed towards anyone specifically on this post but I think we all see this more often than not.
No wonder some of these recruits feel like they are larger than life and can get away with anything they want to!!!! People make them feel bigger than they really are.....
Anyway...my rant. Go Bucks!!! Hopefully he sticks with his committment but if he doesn't then good luck to him.
Born and raised in Oregon, Ohio...live in South Toledo now. I prefer Golden Jade for Chinese...was downtown for years but got demolished when Huntington Center was built...located on Reynolds road now near radio shack
I have to agree with you, I really want Elliot in this class too and hope he can be a great player for OSU and he has a ton of potential but in reality almost half the kids in this class will have very little effect on the future of OSU football. Look back at the past recruits so many don't pan out. I agree big-time recruits come in with larger than life egos and have done absolutely nothing, but they get followed like rock stars. Look back at old rivals100 and there will 60 names you never heard of.
And actually read the post that talkes about past Highly touted recruits and what happened with them. That is interesting because many of them didn't pan out AT ALL! In fact we are probably pretty lucky in the fact that we have been on the good side in terms of highly touted recruits that did not end up being a bust.
The tough part about having Urban Meyer is that ANY college recruit that is decent will want to consider coming to OSU.
I think the bigger "issue" will be all the highly touted recruits considering OSU wanting to make an impact immediately. Some of these kids will bypass OSU to start at other schools vs. competing with other highly touted recruits at their same position and POSSIBLY making an immediate impact. Most of these guys want to be THE GUY and not have to work overly hard to earn playing time right away.
It is a good problem to have though :)
