Unless they were to insinuate something that makes it obvious who they are referring to even if it's not by the guy's name, such as, "NSB has a dynamic player who's going to look great in S&G! #OSUrocksFLA #Go Bucks!"
i dont know all i know is they cannot comment by name.
I follow jbook and yes he provides great information. I recommed Twitter in general. It's a great way to get news and info about any topic you are interested in whatsoever. Sure beats a newspaper or most Websites frankly.

"Buckeye born and bred, a Buckeye 'til I'm dead"
If you remember, Joe Pa blew up at Chad Henne publicly when he committed to play at scUM. He referred to Henne's lack of integrity when said he would give PSU a look and never did. Nothing happened there.
haha yea just like Tom Hermans tweets about James Quick during the UA game.
@CoachZachSmith Quick... Name all the 1st round draftees at WR from THE Ohio State university. I said QUICK!!! Lets go!!!!
Just lookin out for ya!
I completely agree. Twitter is a great way to get information about all of your interests fast.
didnt technically say his name.
That was during the 2nd half of the superbowl... so it could have very well been about that. I think people sometimes read too much/what they want into his tweets.
Grown men having anything to do with Twitter scare me.
Indy, Twitter is literally the news outlet of the 21st Century. Apart from Google search, it's the fastest and easiest way to get Information on anything. It has the added value of having people you trust vet the info, something Google does not have. It is also a seriously sweet networking tool for professionals and is less addictive than Bucknuts, booze or drugs. I can't say enough good things about it.
i love twitter. i just think it's weird when grown men follow 18 year olds. otherwise twitter has completely changed the news/sports world
I understand your concerns however, twitter is merely a source of information. That is it. You dont have to follow any 18yr olds or anybody for that matter if you dont want to. If you just follow Bucknut analysts, recruiting gurus such as Mike Farrel, and news outlets twitter can be extremely beneficial to you despite your age. It would basically be a facebook where your only friends are dave biddle, steve wilfong, Bill K, ESPN, Rivals and Scout. You can take the "Social" in social media out of twitter.
Also im only 21 years old. So the circumstances are a bit different for me
EDIT: I do not follow any recruits and only follow a few buckeye players such as boren and miller. and thats because its cool to see the world from a Ohio St football players perspective.

Exactly. Nothing wrong with what he said, and thats why nothing came from it.
Some more tweets regarding Vonn Bell and Dontre Wilson.
Jbook37: RT @rivalsmike: Hearing that things could be trending back to #OSU for Vonn Bell. This one is a roller coaster. #Vols
Jbook37: Mike Farrell: JL -- I am starting to trend back to OSU for Vonn Bell now after some recent info.
Jbook37: per @davebiddle on 97.1 The Fan he is putting it at 95% that 4 Star ATH Dontre Wilson out of TX will commit to Ohio State tonight.
I am starting to wonder if Farrell wakes up and throws darts at his recruit board and post what he hits. Guy flip flops more than an NBA player.
Raising my expectations but hedging my bets and predicting we get 1.5 of the three guys we are still in on.
Jbook: RT @TBuoniAZRealtor: @OSUCavsfan89 hearing V Bell just said on CFB live that it is down to #OSU and #Tennessee”
I cannot comment on something that happened 8-10 years ago, much less something I'm hearing about for the first time. We also don't know PSU wasn't reprimanded and it just wasn't made public. We're not talking about the level of infraction that leads to bowl bans and loss of scholarship. They would like self-report, anyway, and the NCAA would tell them not to do it again.
The inference was there, even if his name wasn't--everyone knew who Herman was tweeting about. The dots are very easily connected.
You don't sound like a jackass at all in your assessment.
Because as you say, it's their loss not ours. They should feel privileged to come here. Privileged that we want them here. Tallahassee and Knoxville don't have anything on Columbus except for better overall weather in the winter months and that's not enough by any means!
This is a school located in a major city--one that's about 5-8X larger than either. A winning program--and not one that has to go back a decade or more to cite when they last won something major. And though it's been a decade since our last national title, we've at least been there twice since. We've been in more BC$ bowls than any other program since the inception of the BC$ as well.
Numerous conference titles and wins over our archrivals. Always on the big stage in some capacity. And to top it off, we're still a program on the rise. We have yet to endure back to back losing seasons. Tennessee on the other hand hasn't had a decent season in nearly six years.
FSU is up and down up and down despite finishing either at or near the top of the recruiting rankings the past two years.
I can go on and on but again it is indeed their loss and a program with this much pride shouldn't have to get on our knees and beg them to come here. It should be quite obvious the differences between here and just about anywhere else they'd even think of considering be that Tennessee, FSU or Mizzou.
Not every prospect's going to want the "big school in a big city" experience. Some kids actually prefer schools in smaller college towns like Tallahassee, Knoxville, Fayetteville and Bloomington. Going to grad school at Alabama, it was night and day different from Ohio State. The town was smaller and life was simpler, easier to get your hands around, more manageable. The town wasn't as big, which made it a lot less intimidating. Think about Joey O'Connor, who's transferring because he was a small town kid who felt lost in the big city. Take an 18 year old from a rural community and throw him into a major metropolitan area and he can feel overwhelmed, a duck out of water.
And for southern kids, make no mistake, the weather does matter. A lot. if they come to Columbus for an OV in January and step outside into wind, snow and sub freezing temperatures, the novelty wears off in a hurry. Or as J.T. Barrett tweeted when he arrived in Columbus as an early enrollee, “Made it to Columbus, looking around and notice there is snow on the ground and it’s not going away.”
I absolutely love Bloomington. Its a beautiful campus. Its a town that would not exist if it were not for IU and for that reason alone it makes it special. When you live in a town that has a population of 80,000 and over half the town are kids your age, (18-24) it leads to a great atmosphere. And to Iowas point, i too come from a small town and never have lived in the city. Bloomington just feels like home. A home that you can get drunk and crazy any day of the week and have a blast.
I feel special that my tweets were posted here.
