Incredibly stupid question

    I am stuck in NYC and get all my OSU info from the net.

    That said, I am not positive how "Ginn" is supposed to be pronounced as I have never heard it said except on NCAA 2005 and briefly in the big 33 game (props to whoever posted the link for that, btw).

    Sooook, is it a hard G or a soft G? I have thought in my head a soft G, but I think it has been said hard. . .

    Sorry for the dumb question. . .

    It's a hard G. I wish it was a soft G, 'cuase I like gin, but not the case. I'm sure this is going to be a name we hear a lot before he leaves Columbus.

    Hard G. Nessler pronounces it wrong in NCAA 2005. Oddly enough though, it sounds like the stadium PA announcer on the game pronounces it correctly. Go figure.

    I was wondering that. I heard it pronounced both ways in the game.

    I don't have a car - pretty much. :) I park my buddy's car near my place, including moving it for street sweeping and such, a lot of the time. Sooooo, I can use his car anytime he isn't out of town.

    I should be able to check the guy out. I would love to be able to contribute from way out here. Edison isn't too bad to get to.

    I'll try checking everything out, but your best bet is to get on my back about it a bit or I'll end up thinking I am going to do it and then screw up. . . (just realizing my own laziness)

    btw:

    Really, I'll do it if it looks like we have a shot at Jenkins. The only problem is that I haven't watched much highschool ball or tapes recently and might not have a good intuition on his competition. I should be decent in my ability to see what he's got, I hope. . .

    We did get a commit from him - I was spacing (not uncommon for me).

    BTW, I was just playing NCAA 2005 with my buddy, an OSU grad with a car, and he is into checking Jenkins out. Between the two of us we should get a good read (my friend lurks here and elsewhere and is also into the recruiting thing. . .)
