    I have often thought it would be great fun to get a bunch of buddies together and just throw out a recruiting topic and either discuss or debate it over some adult beverages. I unfortunately don't have enough buddies who know enough about recruiting.

    No doubt about that Jeff. I can talk Buckeye football to just about anyone, but the recruiting topic just about lost on everyone. I just tell them that we've got the best cover corner since Deon Sanders coming in.

    Recruiting seems to be a hobby, much like watching college football. The interesting thing to me is that there is a dividing line between the two. All of my friends are OSU football fans. However, if I was to mention the name Rob Schoenhoft only a few would identify him as our most recent commitment and only one of my friends would know that he is a Top 10 QB. The majority of fans don't identify with these players until they have become a fixture on the field. For example, none of my friends know of the name Kirt Lukens, let alone know he's a LB for our beloved Bucks. Two years from now, he might be a household name.
     
  6. Fire up the big screen, lets watch some video, drink some frosty cold beverages and talk recruiting.

    You all are making me homesick. Living in Ohio, you can talk 'Buckeyes' to just about anybody all year long. I'm living in Maryland, outside Washington DC, and have to search out true believers. They're here, but they're way harder to find.

    Count your blessings.

    they arent that hard to find. i heard once that if you are in a public place and yell "O-H" it is almost a guarantee that somebody will return the favor. i gave it a shot this weekend at six flags darien lake (buffalo, NY).

    while waiting for the superman ride to be fixed for the 3rd freaking time that day i gave out a good ol fashioned "O-H" and got a few friendly "I-O"'s in return.

    The last few years I have taken several hiking trips to the Adirondacks, Black HIlls, Grand Canyon, and Utah. My hiking wardrobe always includes an OSU T-shirt or Sweatshirt. I never fail to get a comment from another of the Buckeye Nation. Had a lot of great conversations that way.

    I have had similar experiences...I used to live in NYC and proudly wore my vintage OSU gear frequently. I would constantly run into other Buckeye fans at random bars and restaurants, or especially at touristy places like the South Street Seaport or Grand Central Station. It just always amazed me how you could run into the OSU fan almost anywhere...

    Where in the canyon did you hike? We did a week trip a few years back to Havasu Falls and we've also done Christmas in the Canyon.

    Great to see the experts are giving us our due props so far. Hope we keep things rolling. Maurice Wells, AM-W, Rico McCoy, Doug Worthington and some others would go a long way to helping us secure a Top 5 class. And I feel we have a great shot at all of them.
