Me too. Would OSU stopped recruiting Green? Did he commit early to keep Green from committing? Now it's a little too late.
that is 1 the most badass video's I have ever seen in my 43 years of life. My Gawd - I am ready to go chew up nails & spitfire em thru steel !!! LOL for real though that was total BADASS
my edit = there is no need to worry about EE switching his commitment. He is solid. I cant wait to watch all this super star offensive talent on saturdays!!!

Alex from 11W said he spoke to a source he trusts and was told on the subject of Elliott that "all is well". Herman & Drayton are going to visit him today as well, so that is good.
Alex is also the guy who first blogged that Urban's home visit to Armani Reeve's house last year was a clusterf^ck, a rumor Cam Williams' dad felt obligated to publicly deny.
I'll begin to breathe easier when Elliott says he's committed to OSU and then signs on the dotted line.
By the way, for those who missed it, it's been confirmed that Trey Johnson was in Knoxville over the weekend....after he'd denied it.
The rumors were out there that Trey Johnson (Lawrenceville, Ga./Central Gwinnett) was visiting another school, and they were refuted earlier in the we
FWIW, here are a couple of Elliott's tweets since he got home from his OV at Mizzou (his profile photo has him wearing S&G with the Shoe in the background):
Ezekiel Elliott #⃣2⃣ @EzekielElliott
Coach Drayton and Herman coming through today
Ezekiel Elliott #⃣2⃣ @EzekielElliott
My boy Johnny Townsend has action photos of him punting on Instagram lol idk why I found tht that funny
My hope would be that he wouldn't call Townsend "my boy" unless he was sincere, which would mean he's coming to OSU. But seeing some of these tweets that people send. I mean, seriously, do you really think the kid's going to base his decision on pleas and petitions from people he doesn't even know. There's one Mizzou douchebag who actually said:
Gary Seaton Jr. @GSeaton
If @EzekielElliott goes to OSU, fails then returns to MO looking for job opps et. it won't happen #StayHome and the MO will take care of you
As if he was telling him on behalf of an entire state, "If you leave, don't bother coming back." I don't think he's the Governor.
And to think I thought my daughter's process for deciding on a college was nerve wracking!
The latest from Ezekiel Elliott #⃣2⃣ (@EzekielElliott). Football Commit to THE Ohio State from STL, MO. Running Back 60 200lbs. Follow me on instagram @ezekielelliott. #TheOpening2012 Army All American . St. Louis, MO
That tool from Missouri who wrote this has GOT to be kidding!
Dude I am from Missouri and the University of Missouri has no bearing nor status in the state with regard to employment nor football. Really...EZ leaving the state will always be understood in Missouri as its clear that to pursue football kids always leave the state.
Just ask the Fletcher brothers (Terrell & Jamar). Both of those guys left the state and went to ..............WISCONSIN to pursue their careers and eventually make it to the NFL.
This is funny! Mizzou football can't even be compared to tOSU, so it really is the BEST move to leave Missouri and go to a program that wins titles and puts kids in the league.
CFB is riddled with kids from STL and KC that have gone out of state to play ball. Not sure what the clown in the tweet is saying?
I don't tweet, but maybe some should contact the clown and ask him to clarify why going to Mizzoui is synonymous with "making it", finding a job or making it to the NFL?
Unless Zeke is going to journalism school or into Engineering, going to Mizzoui should be an after thought!!

BuckNasty is all about The Buckeyes!!!
I don't think anyone is going nuts because a kid from St. Louis is visiting Mizzou... they are going nuts because he might change his mind and not go to OSU. If the Bucks get EE and DW, along with Marshall, then the offense looks to be explosive and fun for the next several years. If the they only get either EE or DW, along with Marshall, then it will probably be the same, barring injury or complete bust as a prospect.
If they get neither of these so called Percy Harvin types, they'll still be fine in 2013 with Hyde at power back, Hall playing the position he was supposed to this year, Philly Brown also playing that role, and possibly Marshall as well. Then in 2014, I'm sure that Meyer will be looking at another top 5 athlete or two, or three to recruit.
No matter what happens, things will be ok.
What if he does leave and go to OSU, does very well.
Then lets say just for fun, goes to the NFL and gets drafted by the Rams? Is he welcome back then?
Stupid people being stupid. Meh. Let the kid go where he likes, and he should be welcome anywhere. DERP.
zeke just tweeted this

I don't know...let's ask:
Gary Seaton Jr. @GSeaton
@EzekielElliott Nope. U can't come back. Not ever. There ain't no revolving door on Missouri.
Glad EZE will be a Buckeye. He will do great things here
and even the best tweet yet by him , "One if the things Imma miss the most in STL is the Chinese food. Man it's just not the same anywhere else."
i think he is all buckeye ! lol
he has been my favorite recruit i think he has a bright future here
Mom and dad will have to bring some did with then when they visit each week.
EZE is a good kid on and off of the field and we need him
Thanks JBird85. Starting to feel a little better now.
Zeke, buddy!! You need to get yourself some #1 chinese food on OSUs campus, its the da shiznut drunk food man!! I don't even know if its still there, lol.
Well.....replace it with a new favorite, Catfish Biff's pizza.
Haha I thought that at first, as well. But, not to be a killjoy, if he went to Mizzou he wouldn't be living in St. Louis anymore either (being that it's about a 2 hour drive). So it could apply to either school.
I still think he's all Buckeye though. The tweets regarding Townsend and Bosa are promising, and frankly he's spent a year at least developing a close relationship to this staff and these players, I'd think it'd be hard to pass that up. It's different if the staff at a school you were committed to left, but if everyone's still there and it's still virtually the same school/program/staff you committed to, it'd be hard to find reason to leave. He's probably just giving the staff at OSU a reminder of how valuable he is by even testing the water with Mizzou. ;)
