Beating a dead horse...

    JO is a nice athlete with great potential, but he really didn't do too much this past season against top competition. I saw him play three times this past year (WGH, Ignatius, & McKinley) and he really only stood out once and that was on his long punt return against McKinley. He has potential to be good, but I wouldn't expect too much from him too soon on defense at Ohio State. I could see him getting PT on special teams, but very limited on defense unless he improves his technique soon.

    Did you happen to see him play shut-down CB at the AA game? Justin King and co. got burned by DeSean Jackson, but for some reason, Jamario looked like the best all-american in the East secondary.

    I didn't see much of the AA games, but I heard that JO was solid. Nevertheless, he still needs to develop better technique if he wants to be consistant at the next level, which is the case for most typical freshmen. I'm not trying to down him at all, but I don't expect him to make an immediate impact on defense as a college freshman unless he finds a place in the rotation by mid/late season. In fact, the main reason why he probably won't redshirt is because I think that he can contribute on special teams. I'm willing to bet that Glenville fans would love to see a Ginn-O'Neal combo on ST.

    Of course not...you would never do that...

    I've seen enough of your drivel on BN to know what you are about...

    We don't tolerate that BS over here.

    His technique looked pretty good in San Antonio...

    JohnnyCockfight Beer is God's proof that he loves us.

    I also thought he looked great in the AA game...when he was allowed in the game. Did it seem like the other DBs got more playing time than O'Neal, or did I just miss him?

    Sometimes it hard to spot the fella who is not being thrown toward.

    Given the number of times AMW was burned big time in that game I'd say your "missing" of Jamario during the AA game shows he was playing tight cover.

    That said - my distinct impression was that AMW got scads of playing time - period.
