    Just read the article over on Bucknuts concerning OSU's withdrawl of its offer to Williams. Maybe I'm stupid, but it really doesn't make things crystal clear. From what I gathered from the article, what I suspected (he's not doing all that great in class his senior year) seems to be the reason but they didn't come out and say it since OSU itself seems to have not given a concrete reason.

    I don’t understand either. But I also don't think this is about qualifying academically. It is more about not taking direction from the man who is going to be responsible for you for the next 3-4 years. If the head coach from the University you want to play for asks you to retake a test than you re take the test. Case closed.

    " He was not prepared to take the test" WTF! The ACT is just general knowledge. If you cannot take that test at the drop of a hat, especially if you have already taken it once, than there is a problem. Either with your educators having not prepared you for everyday reality or you just doesn’t give a shit.

    Worst-case scenario he prob. gets another 18 and gets the chance to go in front of the review board. My guess is (and it is only my dumbass guess) (A) that the Coach asked him to do something (B) He didn’t get it done equals (C) Unreliable.

    The fact that MSU didn’t even blink tells you even more about John L. Smith. As if we didn’t know enough about him already. (I know that MSU has a great spec. ed department or whatever it is called but as I stated above I don't think this is about academics

    OSU can not discuss recruits... OSU can not say a thing unless the kid signs with them, once a kid is signed with the school, the school can talk about it... heck, OSU technically can not even say who they have given offers to...

    "OSU technically can not even say who they have given offers to.."

    - Unless they are talking to Kurelic.

    Does it bother anybody else that this guy does no original research? He simply gets the info from the OSU staff on who they are looking at and passes it along as his own opinion.

    What the fuck is up with Youngstown area kids? Clarett a head case, Irizarry a thug, now the same thug shit with Williams. :shake:

    I said at the time all the stuff with him went down that I was happy because it was the right action (search for it if you do not believe me :p). *toots own horn*

    Not only Y-Town, but Austintown Fitch :p. Clarett played his freshamn year there and now look at this AFHS alum.

    I guess I will never know what some of these kids are thinking. When does it cross your mind that knocking someone down and taking their money is a good thing?
     
  12. especially when you risk throwing away the chance to play big-time college football! just shows how irrational people can be.

    Hubs, that's why I said "Youngstown area" kids. I knew Williams was a Fitch grad and that Clarett went to Fitch for a year. And Irizarry went to Ursuline which isn't but a few miles from Fitch...
