Lets try to keep this civil.
It's funny reading all of this on Diggs.
If the kid goes to OSU, great. if not, great.
I just love how some of our fans are so over-the-top and wondering why he would want to stay home and go to Maryland. Yes, its not a football powerhouse, but they have produced first round picks in the NFL recently.
The same crazy fans will bitch and complain when an Ohio kids considers go elsewhere out of ohio, so what is wrong with a kid in Maryland wanting to stay home.
The best part is all the people who go overboard to get any news or updates on what a 17 year old kid is thinking. That is the pathetic part. And then they want to turn around and call this kid a drama queen for taking so long. You do realize that you are his audience. So, what does that makes you guys. Again, not intended for everyone here, only those who follow the facebook pages and twitter feeds of high school kids.
Diggs' most recent Tweets...
Shock the world ! See you later twitter..

As long as he doesn't pick Florida. That's the one team in this scenario I just don't want to see him on.
Sounds like it's Florida or Maryland, as people have been saying for days. With Maryland having by far the best shot.
Yeah, I think if he's announcing in College Park, he's all Terp.

I just got off the phone with Looney's in CP and confirmed: Stefon Diggs (@Marseanbaybee) will announce his decision there at 6 p.m.
If true, all Terp. Just don't know who Jakob Engelke is.
His last tweet was "Shock the World! See you later Twitter" If he doesn't tweet again up until his announcement I might still hold out some hope that he's a Buckeye.
It's a fluid situation. Will keep everyone posted. LOL
Engelke's a sports writer covering UMaryland. Sounding like Maryland all the way.
If this kid does not want to be a Buckeye, then who cares? Kids that grow up dreaming to wear the S & G and want to be here, are the kids we want.......this is Meyer's philophsy also......tring to fit a kid in, when he's rather be somewhere else is not the style. A real Buckeye lover whould have announced by now to be sure he was in the fold.....let him go....
Miguel: How'd you make your bulletpoints? What's the trick? That's about the only thing about this entire thread that interests me.
Here's my summation: First, he pushes his decision back to today, huge prima donna move. First it was going to be at 10, now 6 and yet per Kristin Kenney his HS has a banquet at 7--why wouldn't he make his announcement with his teammates all around him? He scheduled a live televised announcement for tonight, then inexplicably cancelled it. He's supposedly said he's announcing at a UMD campus haunt--a minor doing it in a bar? Then tweats he had a dream about playing in the Swamp..."Contrary to what you hear I have not made a decision . A lot of people going be mad at me . But oh we'll gotta make the best decision for me." And an hour ago he tweated, "even my own city may be mad at me." I think this kid's been having the time of his life playing everyone from the beginning. I'm not sure that I'll 100% believe him when he actually announces his choice.
As far as I'm concerned, 6:00 p.m. today will arrive at exactly the same time it does every day. By then, I'll have a cold beer in my hand and I'll either tip it for Stefon Diggs coming to OSU or wish him well going somewhere else. Whatever he decides, I respect it's his life and his decision but in the scheme of my life, it's neither going to make or break my day.
The Buckeyes might be better with him; I know we'll somehow manage to survive without him.
+100,000,000 great post Iowa, cold beers at 6:00!!

If we limit ourselves to just kids who grow up wanting to wear the S&G, we're going to have a small list of recruits to choose from.
Don't worry--I'm not taking your statement literally. I get what you mean; in fact, I'd love to have a roster that's 95% Ohioans the way Texas's is 95% Texans. But Ohio isn't always going to produce the very best talent in the country and if we want to win NCs, we have to recruit outside the state, which means kids like Diggs who may not have thought about wearing the S&G until OSU contacted them.
As far as Diggs his concerned, we weren't even on his radar until Urban was hired, then we were off and then back on again so I think his decision has very little to do with OSU and a lot to do with Urban Meyer. The lure of playing for him has been too hard to resist; what may be lacking is his desire to come to OSU. Edsall and Locksley are good coaches, certainly nowhere near being in Urban's league but Ohio State isn't located in his backyard, either.
Wow, if he picks Maryland so be it.
Your right and we should not hold it against these kids if they take there time. He lives in Maryland and I could not blame him if he wanted to stay close to home.
I was excited about this and now I just have "Tired head". This is exhausting!!!
These guys are picking us... :)

Really funny... lightened the mood... OSU my choice too.
I don't think he is coming here. I also don't believe he is going to Maryland. I think he is Florida bound.

Diggs commits to the Terds, I mean Terps. Meyer cant close! Kidding...
Diggs will be lucky to make 2nd team all ACC--no QB and a shitty team .....meanwhile Robert Foster is AA at OSU and a first round draft choice......lol...
The state in which Terp football is in right now, there is no way this kid cares about winning. Good luck to him and I hope this decision was all about family and not some girl or because he got a woody from Marylands basketball student section. Half those kids won't even show up to the games he's playing in.
