"Sure hurts not to get Bell. Why in the world would a great athlete as he not choose to play in the SEC? Any thoughts?"
lol..those poor UT fans. i almost feel bad for them.
Thx iowa for your part in this recruiting classa
Was thinking the same thing with Townsend. That maybe Meyer asked him to grey shirt because there might be a surprise recruit that might want in. Just a guess.
ohiostatebuckeyes.com says that Bell's letter is in!!!!!!!

The kicker is from Orlando....so many things to do...he may just busy. I'm sure he'll get around to signing eventually. I heard his mom was taking him to have breakfast with the princesses at Disney to celebrate his big day. He is a punter after all (sarcasm)
Townsend had an offer to walk on at Alabama. Then Urban offered him a scholarship and he jumped on it. I wonder if Urban withdrew it and/or changed it to a preferred walk on and/or Saban offered a full ride and/or Frank E or a walk-on punter or Basil's been booming it and Urban's decided Townsend is expendable? Hopefully he's already faxed it and we're just waiting on EZE.

BREAKING NEWS: Boone P Johnny Townsend officially pushes back his signing to 4:00pm. #BHSNNSD http://twitpic.com/c1empr A
If we need a punter I can punt about 40 yards but I have tight hamstrings so If their is any hot trainers that can help me get limber I can be a nice walk on addition. Lol not really.
Eleven Warriors @11W
RT @BHSN: And the Boone P Johnny Townsend drama continues. He said there will not be a ceremony at 4 p.m. #BHSNNSD http://bit.ly/XVpNEH
Lori Schmidt @LoriSchmidt
Boone High School says they aren't sure when Johnny Townsend's announcement will be because they're "at the mercy of the Townsend family."
I dont want a punter that is this much drama!

Here is a link to Bell choosing TOSU!
ESPN Video: No. 4 safety Vonn Bell of Ridgeland (Rossville, Ga.), No. 50 overall in the ESPN 150, announces his commitment to the Buckeyes on National Signing Day. Bell chose Ohio State over Alabama and Tennessee.
OMG.... This drama over a punter? In reality I like guys like Bosa who faxed early. If some (EzE and Townsend) choose to "announce" (or not) after the UFM news conference can they really be in? And if they are, why the showboat? I for one am incredibly happy with what we have and wish the best for the other two. It just does not sit right with me that you have a "look at me" event after your coach is scheduled. Seems "bush-league" to me, even if they are Buckeyes

I do not want to speculate anything on Townsend, but as a coach who has had a D1 player on his team, I know we made a huge deal out of it, and did it when the parents and family members could be there. This is a huge deal, less than 1% of high school athletes get a DI scholly so I understand and respect any kid who is having a ceremony or waiting to have one when everyone could be there. I have coached one kid who went DI it was a great feeling and may never happen again, but to be apart of it was awesome and something I wish every coach could have the chance to feel.
Bosa faxing his in first. Kids is going to be great. Can't wait to get his younger brother too

when can we start a 2014 thread !? lol
Hopefully they kept their receipts.
Otherwise, you can never have enough good rags around the house to dust and wipe up spills and wash your car...
Just looked at the Tennessee board and there is a mixture of rage, depression and denial lol
...or wipe your ass
so wait ! Urbans press conference is at 3 ? on espn or btn im sure. but it's at 3 right ?
Interesting perspective and very insightful. Not knowing you nor the athlete you are discussing I just would ask the following three questions:
1) Was the player this good?
2) Was the school this big?
3) Was it scheduled AFTER the coaches news conference announcing the team?
I t was actually for baseball, the player was very good, with an offer from OSU as well, Went to a Big East School which I know football isn't great, but in baseball they are good. We are a very small school with only 72 boys in school so big deal for us and the kid, we asked the school when he could sign and actually did it 2 days afterwards when all his family could be here
We are having a signing for 5 football players this afternoon. They all faxed their LOIs in this morning during first period. The families celebrate with us this afternoon. IF the player doesn't want to do it this way. They can do it away from the school.
Will this press conference be live online anywhere?
