It bears repeating- HUGE props and mad respect for the Bosa's, Burrow's, and Marshall's of the world that are wise enough to see the value in committing early, staying with your pledge, and recruiting other great players so, you know, they can be really good and win lots of games. That's also a beauty of recruiting, you get great insights into where these kids head are out and what is most important to them. My prediction is Jones decommits, does the "opening up my recruitment" song and dance where he can get showered with attention and have more sunshine than he handle blown up his azz and then ultimately comes back around to the home school.

Can we stop acting like losing jones would be no big deal and we will just get someoe better. Jones is a beast from a pipeline and a good football player. If he goes elsewhere yea that would suck but let's not act like we all weren't jacked up to get him
Well, yeah, Alex told me that earlier. I was just passing the word. If Bill says we've offered prospect "XYZ," am I allowed to say we've offered prospect "XYZ" or do I have to cite my source and say that Bill told me that? Sometimes it isn't really necessary.
I pretty much always give credit where credit is due. No one does it 100% of the time, though. Whenever I copy/paste something I cite the link or source. I am not "in the know," nor have I ever claimed to be.
I don't see why your post was necessary, no offense.
If you read through the post again, hardly anyone turned into a Negative Nancy over this so I'd say your not the only one.
Me? Ouch? Was that supposed to be offensive? It's the internet, lighten up. Turn down the brightness of your screen if the text is screaming and annoying you.

BIG Champs 2013 [Buckeyes]
What if Ginn tell Urban that he's not changing a thing.
I honestly don't care. We have Knox, Trout, and Jones left...All we need IMO is a JUCO and 2 other OL. IMO if Jones were to commit to Alabama so be it. I think we can get 3 OL by NLOID that are as good if not better than Jones...at least 2. We cannot control what these kids do anyways...It's futile to worry about.
I'm definitely of the opinion that Jones should not have gone out of his way to commit early if he were going to take officials elsewhere later. It just isn't a good look. Free or not. Not sure what can be done to stop the games and drama associated with recruiting Glenville kids in the future but regardless of the percentage of kids OSU has landed from there in the past, its really beginning to irk me. Seems like a large majority of those kids feel entitled and an OSU offer is a right and not a privilege. Maybe that was the case in the past but that will no longer be the case under this regime.
It's probably gonna take Urban telling one of the really big time recruits from there, "thanks but no thanks" and move on to a similarly or higher rated recruit from a different state to get their attention.
just my perspective, there was no foul language or anything else...agree to disagree I guess
