while it's not official terrelle pryor is "LIKELY" going to OSU... good day for buckeye fans everywhere...

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/football/ncaa/02/04/pryor.osu/index.html

By Jack McCallum, SI.com
One of the most eagerly-anticipated high-school football recruiting battles in years will likely end on Wednesday at noon in the Jeannette (Pa.) High gymnasium. That's where Terrelle Pryor, an all-purpose, all-state quarterback is "80-90 percent sure" he will announce his college decision at a nationally televised news conference. Pryor had considered delaying his decision until after Signing Day, but has apparently changed his mind.

Sources believe that Pryor is leaning toward Ohio State, which had been the early favorite of the western Pennsylvania star with 4.4 speed. But there has also been much speculation that Pryor, whose 8,499 career yards were almost equally divided between passing and running, would choose Michigan and the spread-offense philosophy of new coach Rich Rodriguez.

Oregon was also attractive to Pryor, but he never made an official visit there, partly because he was so busy with basketball. (He's an all-state forward, a 6-foot-6 forward with supreme athleticism.) Pryor told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Monday that he was going to call Oregon and tell coaches that the Ducks were out of the picture.

Penn State was also a serious suitor, but in the end the decision came down to Ohio State or Michigan. The battle for Pryor has been the story this recruiting season and the way he keeps changing his mind, it may not be over. But right now, the best guess is that the Buckeyes have won.

I wonder where SI got this? People need to lay off. Predictions? Don't mind them. But when you are finalist(even a long shot, you don't want to hear people saying he is going somewhere have your hopes down, and he announces, then you find he is not going there and he is going to you school,

Sure is better than going to Michigan with RR.

Sure is better than going to Michigan with RR.

I personally think most likely he goes to Michigan though if he wants to be a 4 year starter unless he's going to throw Beckman from a starting job or he will take a Redshirt.

Pryor is a "one in a million" player, according to almost everyone. Tressel has a track record of seasoning his QB's by redshirting them, but the man is no dummy. Pryor will most likely only stay in college for two years if he's as good as advertised, and it would be foolish to think that Tress is going to waste one of those years with him riding the pine.

If Terrelle becomes a Buck, Boeckman will stay penciled in as the starter, but Pryor will take the job from him by opening day. And there is no way Pryor goes to OSU unless Tress told him right up front he would come in from day one competing for the Starters job.

He has to stay for at least three years.

LSU's out. Reports now state that only Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State are his top 3 choices but he has pretty much knocked it down to 2. Someone will need to back me on that. One of my teachers also a Die-hard Penn State fan like me found a report somewhere, but I'm not sure where.

Alright, 3...but the principle remains. The kid ain't going to OSU to get splinters in his ass. If he's better than Henton and Boeckman, he'll play. And if he does go to OSU, and he really is as good as advertised, the chances are very good that the Bucks will be right back in the big game again next year. The defense will be awesome, and the one true upgrade they needed was at QB.

Pryor announced today that penn state, ohio state, and michigan are all still equal in the race. i am an osu fan so i am happy if this is true, but i will wait until tomorrow because he also announced that he will make his final decision on wednesday.

At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to see Pryor sign with Florida. The longer this thing drags out, the more I begin to think that he is thinking long and hard about going to Gainesville. However, if he went to Florida, he'd be sitting behind Tebow for two seasons, whereas if he went to OSU, he'd take over and play almost immediately.

He'd play pretty much immediately at Penn State, Ohio State, and Michigan all of which are still in the mix. All have QB's who either A.) Left or B.)(Ohio State and Penn State's case) will be gone the next year and they'll probably start them right off the bat.

I wouldn't count out Penn State...

Mr. Pryor said Penn State assistant coaches Tom Bradley and Jay Paterno have dealt more with his parents than other schools' coaches and that his father feels a trust with Penn State's coaches that he doesn't feel with other schools. "My dad loves [Mr. Bradley]," he said with a laugh.

"Penn State has done a lot," he continued. "They showed up a lot more. They recruited me a lot more. They've sent pages upon pages of handwritten letters."

In the fall, Mr. Pryor questioned Penn State's offensive style. Last week, Penn State coach Joe Paterno, Mr. Bradley and Jay Paterno all visited with Mr. Pryor at Jeannette, and with his parents.

"I just didn't know about their offense because I never had a meeting with their coach," Mr. Pryor said. "I didn't know what they were about. I thought it was just a power offense. It's not."

The reports around here are that PSU is playing hardball with Pryor, laying it on thick with the "You owe it to PA to stay in PA" and the like. Mike Brewster, one of the three absolutely monstrous stud OLineman the Bucks signed was pretty pissed about the whole things. He said:

''I know programs are doing this and that, and Penn State is trying to bully him — play the in-state team, little town (thing),'' he said. ''I just want to make sure he's protected not only on the field but off. I'm definitely going to make sure he ends up here because I don't want anyone else blocking for him.''

This thing is starting to turn into a 3 ring circus.

Concerning the Buckeyes class, they are consistently being rated #7 or #8 without him. But considering that arguably two of the best players on the defense (Lauranitis and Jenkins) were only ever 2 start recruits, that doesn't mean much. The Bucks did what they do. They invited 26 kids in, most of them from Ohio, kids they had a bead on, and 19 of them have signed. The jury is still out on #20, but they'll survive without Terrelle Pryor if he foes elsewhere.

"Bullying" is a relative term. PSU is not the most attractive offer he's looking at...they are using the only tool they have, which is to "guilt" him into staying home. Hey, I don't blame them at all. Fact is, it's a much bigger deal for Michigan or PSU to LAND a Pryor than it is for OSU to LOSE a Pryor.

terrelle pryor will sign with ohio state because:

1) Michigan signed a 3/4 star recruit who's a purely running QB

2) Penn State well idk he'll be the only one doing anythhing with the ball and wil be going up against 8,9 man fronts...

Michael Keller
02-08-2008, 08:22 AM
This kid has too many people telling him what to do. That is very obvious . if he wants a greatr college career he goes with Rodriguez and the offense he is familiar with if he wants to perfect his game as a pocket QB he needs to make some mechanical changes and perhaps be willing to sit for a while . He has to decide what he wants. I am not at all impressed with Vince Young and of course the coaches at Texas fot the best out of him but his release is just terrible.

I gotta believe Charlie Batch is talking to him. My prediction is Ohio State, sit one year and learn. Second Penn State and a distant third Michigan.

He is very special and I wish him the very best.

Way to be ignorant :thumbsup:

Penn State has a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and especially at WR

The only thing they have been lacking the past 2 seasons was a QB. Before we were stuck with Morelli, we had a QB similar to Pryor (M Rob) and won the Orange Bowl

But I guess if he wants to win a lot of games and then choke, he should go to Ohio State

Yeah and Pryor would be also be playing behind an expierenced offensive line at Penn State.

R I like it!!!

Evidenced by the performance of Troy Smith i would say yes Ohio State is a good opportunity for him to refine his game and be the best Quarterback he can be. Pryor is a good 6 inches taller than Troy thus he he should not be restricted at Ohio State. Smith's mechanics are much better than Vince Young and even with the height limitation Smith may yet be better than VY in the pros.

Again Michigan is not a great choice in my mind and Paterno might make Pryor a line backer as he would have with Jim Kelly. Just kidding !!

Ohio State and the Big Ten is where I would like to see him end up for his sake. He is a very different athlete and I would wish nothing but the best for him.

It's pretty much certain he is playing in the Big Ten, however Penn State I think if he gives it full consideration as he is doing, he'll be wearing Blue and White and playing in front of a white crowd a few times in his carrier.

Ok Matt , Pryor going to Penn State would in fact please me as I always root for Penn State as they are my second favorite team. Pitt is my favorite. BUT

What reason or reasons do you think he would be better off going to Penn State?

What would you say to him to encourage him to make that choice . Why for his sake not ours as fans?

Well Mike,

-He can be part of a school who is one of the tops in the nation at graduating their student-athletes. (Football is 2nd in the nation)
-He'll have a coach that cares about where he is going in life more then just winning games.
-Pryor is pretty close to his grandfather and would like him to be able to see him play. Penn State is A Little over 2 Hours away from Jeanette. Columbus is over 3 Hours and Ann Arbor is over 5 Hours. I think from a Travel standpoint, Penn State makes a better option there.
-If JayPa gets his wish, Penn State will be a spread offense this year. You know how much Pryor loves the spread.

That is a fair question or observation on your part. your part . My focal point of concern is that just too many college quarterbacks that have bad habits or throwing or passing mechanics that i srongly believe should be corrected and or developed to a higher level of perfection incollege.

Vince young is the most recent notable case in point. I think the coaches did this kid diservice as I see MOST high school QB's with much better mechanics. What's gooing on. The answer I believe is lets ride the horse the way he runs because we will win. IN COLLEGE, TEXAS WINS A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP , PENN STATE WINS THE BIG 10, WITH ROBINSON AND THE ORANGE BOWL

Todd Blackhedge former Penn Quarterback was a case in point of bad mechanics, Michael Robinson was a great college QB. I certainly can understand PSU using him as they did, no problem BUT if I am TP or if I' m looking out for the young man, (the next 2 to 4 years could provide for tremendous fianacial freeedom ) I am asking "where do I maximize my NFL playing potential. There is nothing wrong with that objective as most of us go to college to get a better job or carreer. At this junctuire I am not convinced PSU is the best place but I am open minded and quite frankly, being from Pennsylvania, I would love to see him at Happy Valley but not as another Michael Robinson. I put TP before my fan partisanship. I am not sure a recruit can request the following but if I am Tp i want a QB coach that can take me to the next level. If any recruit can dictate this, he probably could. . I am serious please convince me, that other than the great college experience at PSU, which no one could deny) PSU is the best place for TP

Sorry, man, but this is WAAAAAAY off. OSU is MAYBE second only to ND in fanbase, and that's only a maybe. PSU has a nice fanbase, but they fall into top-20 status only. Ohio State is now (and there is no reason to believe given their continued dominant recruiting) a true perennial national championship contender. They've been there 3 out of the last 7. Think bigger. What if Pryor brought TWO titles to OSU in his years there? OSU gets 3 out of 5 tries in 9 years?

I also believe they have the most alumni of any university in the US, which just makes sense. Somewhere around half a million living alumni.

But I wasn't even talking about that stuff. I was talking about "fan base" in general, meaning how well the fans travel, how many fans there are in general, etc, etc...Notre Dame probably has a bigger general fan base, now that I think about it, because every Catholic is at least a lip-service paying fan.

Sorry bud, you are wrong.

Penn State has things called "branch" campuses all across the state of Pennsylvania. Many times, you are required to attend a branch campus before going to the main campus

total enrollment at Penn State = 83k like i posted earlier http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penn_State (23k more than OSU)

I also believe Penn State has more alumni than Ohio State which makes sense. And Im not even jsut talking about that. Many people in PA are penn state fans that didnt go to the college

Pennsylvania > Ohio (population and size)

Penn State > Ohio State (students enrolled, alumni and fanbase)

Penn State has a similar hardcore following as the Steelers do. I guess we could compare the Buckeyes following to the Brownies or the Bungles :jawdrop: j/k

I went to the Orange Bowl a few years ago and Penn State pretty much took over South Beach and outnumbered the FSU fans by far. Did you notice how the National Champ. game was like a home game for LSU? Yeah well if it were Penn State vs LSU, it would have been like a home game for Penn State

Beaver Stadium has a capacity of 107,282, making it the second largest stadium in the United States (smaller than Michigan Stadium by 219 seats), the third largest stadium in North America, and the sixth largest stadium in the world.

mmm. i wonder why PSU stadium is so big??? i guess that it's so big b/c we have a huge fan base and many many fans that go to the game

more info on beaver stadium

Beaver Stadium is widely known as one of the toughest venues for opposing teams in collegiate athletics. Kirk Herbstreit of ESPN says that Penn State has one of the best student sections in the nation and Gameday at PSU is "The Greatest Show in College Sports". A 2007 ESPN article ranked Beaver Stadium 5th in its top 10 list of "Scariest Places to Play".

this fact is from a couple yrs ago but shows the fan base of it... and of course over the yrs grown

In 2002, Penn State also set an NCAA record for largest season attendance, with 1,257,707 watching Penn State games over the course of the season

First off, when they come up with the "biggest University's in the US" they don't count branch campus's. They look at the school itself. Ohio State has a ton of branches through-out the state of ohio, but in the end when they use the basis of just the main campus (which they have used for a long time) and Ohio State kills Penn State.

Second, don't give me this crap comparing Pen State playing in the Orange Bowl (8 hours from Tallahassee where florida state's main campus is located) to ohio state playing in new orleans for the national championship (70 miles from Baton Rouge where LSU is located). I was there for that game, and the biased local news even said on the air. we OWNED bourbon street all 3 days I was there. As far as when I was AT THE GAME, the entire upper bowl and part of the lower part was mainly buckeyes. Don't tell me it's like a home game for Florida State and it's not for LSU. Florida State can't even compete with LSU. Florida has three big time programs in Florida (Florida, Florida State, and Miami). Louisana has one, meaning the entire state pulls for that team, unlike Florida state. So when they play 70 miles from home for a national championship (something Penn State doesn't know about) it's not even close to what you expierenced at the orange bowl. Quit kidding yourself and trying to compare the two.

Third, Ohio State championships: 7, Penn State championships: 2. Ohio State Heisman's: 7, Penn State Heismans's: 1. That about sums up tradition for you doesn't it???

Fourth, as far as the stadium goes. Sure you have a bigger stadium, but only because OSU has no interest in closing the stadium to get in more people. Do you really think that if OSU closed the 'Shoe it wouldn't be bigger than Penn State's crap-shoot? Our stadium has history (it's even been added to the National Register of Historic Places, look it up) because of the horseshoe shape. By keeping it open, it upholds that tradition. So yeah it's not the biggest, but it's still pretty darn big, and a lot more unique than just some giagantic stadium that looks no different than any other stadium :cough:

Fifth, when is the last time you guys have played a meaningful game? I love JoePa, but as long as he is there you won't be contending for any national titles (just look at your recruiting class this year) Terrelle Pryor would be stupid to go to a school like Penn State over OSU (or even Michigan). Unless he has no interest in playing for anything but the NFL

Lastly, yeah you can rip on us for losing the last two championships, but ATLEAST WE ARE PLAYING FOR THEM. No one can even touch us in the Big One. Rip on us all you want, but I know all fans would love to be playing for a title year-in, year-out.

tell me how that fact tells me that PSU campus is not bigger than o state??

u talk about the horse shoe tradition.. blah blah.. i beleive that the fans organize white outs at games when psu has home games.. does o state do that, do there fans care about tradition.. no

the last time joe pa played in a meaningful game was the orange bowl.. when was the last time o state actually won a meaningful game???

Counting the number of times we've been ripped, Penn State should have at least maybe 10-12 National Titles right now. I probably should have lived to see one of them(coughs1994coughs)

Good point. The '94 team was one of the best teams in college football history and certainly better than the last 2 Ohio choke teams and realistically was better than OSU's team that won the championship over Miami

haha, you think Penn State and OSU are the only ones that do white-outs? Those "out's" have been going on long before you chumps started doing it and will continue to be done (in football and basketball). It's a fad that all schools have been doing, and what happens to fads? They die out, but tradition lives on. So while all schools continue to do the current fads (including OSU), we will continue to have our numerous great traditions that live forever.

Last time we won meaningful games? 2005: W 34-20 over No. 9 Notre Dame, W 24-7 over No. 2 Texas, W 42-39 over No. 2 Michigan

Then how about the last few meetings vs. you chumps: 2007: W 37-17, 2006: W 28-6, 2004: W 21-10, 2003: W 21-20, 2002: W 13-7. Outside of 2005 (thanks for the block ryan hamby) we have owned you the past couple of years (and own the all-time record with 12 wins)

As far as National Championships you should have.......close only counts in horseshoe's and hand grenades. As much as I would like to say we have 9 by pointing out specific points in the last two years in the BCS game, or more (if I count how many failed times under John Cooper) I can't. That '94 Nebraska team would have crushed Penn State. They beat a far better Miami(Fl) team than you did in Oregon.

This is going no where because in the end, I am going to be right about THE Ohio State University and you are going to be wrong about Penn State. Why do you think we OSU fans are arrogant? Because 1), we can, 2) we have tradition that no one else has and will continue to build on it with even more tradition, 3) we are the sh*t, plain and simple.

One more thing, I'll be sure to come back on after we get yet another big recruit to our class (Terrelle Pryor) while Penn State continues to slide towards the back of the big one.

'94 Penn State better than '02 OSU team? That's hilarious considering we beat a far better opponent in Miami than you did in Oregon in your bowl game. That Miami team was stacked with Heisman trophy canidates (Ken Dorsey finished 5 in voting, Willis McGahee finished 4 in voting, Andre Johnson should have been there) and don't forget about Kellen Winslow. Plus Miami had the Rimington Trophy winner (center) in Brett Romberg. Give respect where it's due to a team that beat a great Miami team. Say what you want about the penalty, but it was the right thing to do. Wrong call (should have been defensive holding) but right outcome since both penalities have the same result that close to the goal line.

02-12-2008, 03:21 PM
Some other schools can't even do the white-outs because well, NO WHITE IS IN THEIR COLOR. Look at other schools. They picked a different color. (Maryland-Black, Michigan-Maize).

Notre Dame? You consider a victory over Notre Dame to be big? That team is the most overrated Football School in the country. Until they join a Conference or schedule at least 90%+ of teams who are bowl teams per year. They play the 117th toughest schedule in my opinion. The best teams on their schedule in 2007 were Penn State, Michigan, and USC all beat them a combined 107-10. in 2005, they still played a piece of shit schedule.

If you're going to go that far back, acknowledge that fact we beat you in 2005 17-10.

Nebraska better then the 94 Nittany Lions? Typical Buckeye Bullshit right there. Your telling me Kerry Colins and Ki-Jana Carter doesn't carve the shit out of them?

No, we will be right about OSU and Penn State. Ohio State can win a National Championship if there life depended on it. The last Big Ten team to win a BCS Bowl, who might that be? oh that's right PENN STATE. Read it and weep it.

Ohio State is arrogant because 1.) They just have no common sense, 2.) They're the joke of the Big Ten and don't realize it. and 3.) They take their wins/losses with the maturity expected of a Pre-Schooler.(At least 80-90%)

Ok, so don't come crying to me if our small recruiting class gets dramatically better.

And yes, I do consider that Notre Dame game a big win since they came close to beating USC, beat a tough Pitt team, and a good Michigan team. I believe that team had some talent on it. Just because they sucked last year doesn't mean you can roll the last couple into it just to support your argument. I believe most football analyst would agree that Notre Dame was pretty good in 2005. Whether your hill-jack mind agrees with that is another story.

Believe it or not, college football is my sport. While I am guily of having to use google to remember scores, the rest of my knowledge comes from within. (As I am sure you guys have never had to use websites to look anything right?) Just call me being a resourceful person.

How is Clarrett being in jail right now have anything to do with what would happen on the field in a fictional game? Say what you want about the guys morals, but he had a hell of a year in 2002. You can talk about NFL all you want but I am talking college football (which really helps you out if you want to talk about Ki-Jana Carter), but your right about the 4 or 5 star recruits. A.J. Hawk was a 3 star recruit, at best, and turned out to be one of the better linebackers to come thru Ohio State. While Mike DeAndrea was a 5 star recruit and barely saw the field.

This talk about how the '02 OSU team not being able to keep up with the '94 Penn team sounds a WHOLE lot like how we wouldn't be able to match up with the '02 Miami team (according to the media and I am sure you Penn State fans were eating right out of their hand). Look how that turned out

Ok 2005 you got me there

Actually the Orange Bowl was later. A majority of Notre Dame's wins were against the Military Academies and lower level Competition. Pitt? Good? GIVE ME A BREAK Pitt hasn't won a bowl game in over 5 years. They were coming off a loss to a Mountain West team. Major conference teams should easily blow them out. But Pitt lost to UTAH 34-7 in the Fiesta Bowl the season before. Also name the last time Notre Dame won a BCS Bowl? Check up your resources.

You're just posting here to prove the arrogance of a majority of Ohio State fans are giving your Ohio State fan base that post here a bad name(Unfairly I might add). How do I look stupid?

Yes, Pitt was good that year (ranked in the top 25). If Pitt was playing Utah in the Fiesta Bowl the year prior, they must have been doing something right? I don't see how you can consider beating a team that played in a BCS bowl game the year prior and ranked not a good win for Notre Dame. By your logic, if Penn State were to beat us next year it's not a good win because we are coming off a bowl loss in the national championship (and you can't honestly tell me you would believe this).

While true, Notre Dame is 0-3 in BCS bowl games the fact remains they still are Notre Dame. No matter your opinion of Notre Dame, beating a highly ranked Notre Dame team in a BCS bowl game is a huge win. (Like beating the Yankees, etc.)

As far as giving Ohio State fans a bad name, I am only saying what we all know/think.

You realize Pitt was starting a new head coach who has shown (with the exception of the WVU game last year) that he can't coach with worth crap in College Football in aforementioned year? He has taken a once proud program and turned into a laughing stock.

Ohio State though(I'm sure you'd agree with me on this) plays in a conference that is respectable despite their issues winning the National Championship. And at the time of said game in 2006 was Unbeaten. Therefore I feel that would have been a good win. When Conference Season rolls around, that's when I judge how good a win would be(including past history).

Thanks for that by the way. I'm Hoping to land at a highly accredited broadcasting school. (Some people are already reffering to me as the next Myron Cope).

I think Poz needs to play an entire season before you can say he is better than a.j.hawk. hawk is the reason why that green bay defense has gotten so good. what a joke that dan connor and paul posluszny won the Bednarik award over hawk and laurinaitis. Lets look at their stats, since stats don't lie

2005
Posluszny: 116 tackles,14 for loss, and 4 sacks

A.J Hawk : 121 tackles, 16.5 for loss, and 9.5 sacks

Posluszny wins the Bednarik award.....hmmmm...........
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
2006
Posluszny: 116 tackles, 9.5 tackles for a loss, 3 sacks, 2 forced fumbles

Laurinaitis: 115 tackles, 8.5 tackles for a loss, 4 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 5 INT

Posluszny wins the Bednarik award again.....hmmmmm..................
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
2007
Connor: 100 tackles, 4 sacks, 3 forced fumbles

Laurinaitis: 121 tackles, 5 sacks and 2 intereceptions

Connor wins the Bednarik award again....hmmm...............


I know what your going to say "argue all you want but they hold the awards". Tell me this though, do you really think they deserved the award for top defensive player when they weren't even the best player at their position?

Hold the phone. The implication in that post is that people outside of Ohio think Ohio State has a Top 5 fanbase. Now I hate to burst your bubble, but that's hogwash. Ohio State's popularity out here on the West Coast is very limited. Basically, it's compromised of former Ohio residents. Penn State may have a limited appeal, but the same can be said of Ohio State.

revefsreleets
02-16-2008, 05:11 PM
The fan base of people from Ohio and ex-alum and the way the travel makes them a top-5 fan base. It's the 7th most populace state, and there is NO fan division as in the bigger states (i.e. Florida has Miami, UF and FSU). If you are born in Ohio, you ARE a Buckeye. Even PA has some Pitt fans.

Did you read the article from the dude in Washington? Did you hear what the fans in Texas had to say? Wherever the Bucks travel the home team is monumentally shocked at how well the fans travel, and they are usually quite vocal about it. Just as in Seattle, where they said NO other team ever sent as many fans along, not ND, not USC. There's a reason HBO did it's first ever documentary on college football on the Michigan vs OSU rivalry, and if you watch that special, a large part of it concerns the rabid nature of the Buckeye fans. SI had an article on the dominance of OSU athletics, and they made the cover. The title of the article was "The Program" and part of the article, again dealt with the phenomenon of the fans.

I don't understand the hostility and resistance here...it's not like I'm making this stuff up.

02-17-2008, 08:15 PM
That's part of my point. I'm not dealing in "wikipedia facts", or general impressions of fans of the Bucks, I'm talking about hard empirical data, of observations (documented, like many of my facts are, of course) by those who were there and saw and who know. UT had never rented their basketball arena out out an opposing team before. Of course, no opposing team had ever had the need to hold a pep rally for 30,000 traveling fans. It was nice of the Longhorns to do so, and I'm sure if you ask any of the people in the know around Austin what opposing college team had the best fan base in the country, they wouldn't hesitate to say OSU.

But, hey, what would they know? Or the people in New Orleans who said the same? Or in Phoenix who said the same? Or the people in Orlando who said the same? Or Tampa? Or Seattle?

Yeah and besides, you guys have a set starter anyway. Penn State and Michigan don't. If he wants to start right away, he should go to either or. Darryl Clark who if the season started now would be the starter is a sr. and could be used as a WR or a RB.

No I read an article the other day that said he still wanted to visit Oregon but had to wait until he was done with basketball. Here's the link of the articl from the 12th of February.

http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080212/SPORTS06/80212040/1054

Pryor said he plans to visit the Ducks. “Oregon is still in it,” Pryor said last week. “They’re definitely in the picture and I’ll be flying out to Oregon to check it out.”

Recruiting: Pryor down to Ohio State, Penn State

The nation's number one recruit, quarterback Terrelle Pryor, has removed Michigan and Oregon from his short list. That leaves only Ohio State and Penn State.

Four days ago he said that he would make his decision known at 12:05 on Tender Day , Wednesday the 6th. He did not.

He has now ruled out Michigan and Oregon. The decision would be bad for anybody, but it is particularly bad for the Wolverines, who don't have a suitable quarterback available for next season.

Worse still, Rodriguez' recruiting antics over the past few weeks have offended the entire conference. There is considerable speculation that what he has done may be working against him.
Recruiting ethics, plus missing documents at West Virginia, have raised red flags across the country.

According to what SC was stating that he has till April.

Also, do OSU fans think Pryor wants to be associated with Post-Season losers. Sure PSU hasn't been a part of a BCS National Championship, but the problem is they have won their last 3 post-season appearances. 1 of which was against a SEC School. I'm sure you know what it is like to beat one of them in the last 2 years, oh wait, you don't.

OK.....if winning a national championship was his goal he would have signed with Florida or USC. But he didn't because staying close to home is pretty important to him. So before Buckeyes fans go beating their chests too much, they might want to keep that in mind.

Morelli and Henne were both highly touted coming out of high school. The drama that played out between those two was almost as bad as what we're seeing with Pryor. Henne gave a verbal to Penn State, only to switch to Michigan. Morelli gave a verbal to Pitt only to change his mind on signing day.

(clearing throat LOUDLY)

Choke? You mention choke and OSU, then mention USC? NO team has choked harder or longer or louder than Pete Carroll's Trojans. LOADED with talent top to bottom, year in and year out, and they always find a way to piss away at least one game a year to some sorry-assed third rate mid-tier Pac 10 team. The Trojan on the side of their helmet should be replaced with a picture of a chicken bone lodged in a trachea.

At least OSU has the good sense to beat the teams they are supposed to beat, and lose in the biggest game of the year. USC lost to Stanford...at home. That's unforgivable.

I'm also wondering how my credibility comes into question because I happen to be a Steelers and Buckeyes fan? I went to HS in a town that was about 90 miles from Pittsburgh, and about 100 miles from Cleveland. Am I somehow geographically obligated to only support teams originating in my own state? What if I lived on the border of Ohio and Pittsburgh?

Injuries count on 53 man NFL rosters to a degree. They are not an acceptable EXCUSE for 1-A teams 6 deep at every position. And there is no excuse for #1 USC losing to #117 Stanford at home. It was a far worse loss than UM's loss to Appalachian St. The Mountaineers were at least a quality football team, even if they were D1-AA. The Cardinal just sucks ass.

You would think since the university is actually in the city of Pittsburgh, people who live outside of the city or out of state would have at least some respect for the university. Particulary the ones who claim to love the city and it's sports history, yet bashing it's major university, a university that has spit out some damn fine football players for this city to be proud of over the years seems to be okay.

By no means am I stating that everybody should become PITT fans, but maybe a little respect and appreciation? Oh well, I guess it's just a Pittsburgh thing? I really don't care one way or the other, I just find it a little odd and amusing. That's all.

Jeannette, North Catholic fight sparks WPIAL discipline review
Melee mars playoff game at Hempfield
Saturday, March 08, 2008
By Mike White, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Jeannette High School boys' basketball team could face disciplinary action from the WPIAL because of a fight between the Jayhawks and North Catholic after today's PIAA playoff game at Hempfield.

Jeannette won the Class AA quarterfinal, 86-60, and the fight occurred outside the North Catholic locker room.

The WPIAL will hold a hearing Tuesday with all parties involved, and WPIAL executive director Tim O'Malley acknowledged some of Jeannette's players could face disclipinary action that might affect their status for Wednesday's semifinal game.

Jeannette star Terrelle Pryor was one of many players involved in the incident.

"Clearly what has been reported to have taken place is totally unacceptable and outside what is involved in sportsmanship," said O'Malley. "Might there be consequences? Absolutely. What they might be, I don't know. That will be up to our board of control."

State police said last night the incident is under investigation, though it is being treated so far as a disturbance. No criminal charges have been filed.

According to those who saw the incident, Jeannette's team came down a hallway after the game and approached North Catholic as it entered the locker room.

Hempfield assistant coach Rob Stauffer worked security for the game and escorted North Catholic to its locker room when the fight started. Stauffer told state police he was holding back Pryor during the melee.

Wow....Penn State would ruin him but Michigan would be a good fit? That's one of the dumbest things I've read on this message board.

Of the four schools he's picking between, Ohio State is the only one that will put him in the NFL as a quarterback. Penn State and Oregon won't and he'd probably end up selling drugs under Rodriguez at Michigan.

That was a waste of a year of development for morelli, who really could have blossomed as a highly touted prospect. I'm sorry, but one good season for a player who was a better athlete than QB is just another example of how Penn State cannot groom or develop quaterbacks... at least since Blackledge.

Pryor to announce his choice tommorrow.

The highly touted high school quarterback will announce where he will attend college at a news conference Wednesday.

Pryor, from Jeannette High School near Pittsburgh, was ready to sign a letter of intent with Ohio State at a similar news conference on Feb. 6, the first day of the national signing period for football recruits.

But he decided at the last minute to delay his selection. His father, Craig, wanted him to take more time to consider attending nearby Penn State.

The 6-foot-6 Pryor led his high school team to the Pennsylvania Class AA basketball championship last weekend at Penn State, but he has not made an official visit to the school since postponing his decision.

Pryor's final choices were Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and Oregon, a list he recently narrowed to two unannounced schools. While he said last month he would visit Oregon, he never did so.

Pryor was at Ohio State on Feb. 24 -- apparently, his only campus trip since his last news conference -- though it was not for an official visit. He was with teammate Jordan Hall, an all-state running back, when Hall was offered a scholarship by the Buckeyes. Hall also has offers from Pitt, Michigan, Penn State and Notre Dame.

Pryor is not believed to have visited Michigan since delaying his decision, although the Wolverines apparently were his other top choice. He did attend a Michigan basketball game on Jan. 19.

Ohio State signed 19 players last month and has been holding a 20th scholarship for Pryor, who had one of the best careers of any athlete in Pennsylvania high school history.

Pryor is the only Pennsylvania player to both rush and pass for at least 4,000 yards in football. He also scored 2,285 points in basketball. He would have been heavily recruited in basketball but, for now, does not plan to play basketball in college.

Really? Is that what you guys are telling yourselves after this?

The kid was headed to OSU the whole way. Want to know why?

http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=787778

"Jim Tressel has never had a heavy-handed recruiting style and often urges recruits to look around just to be 100 percent sure that they want to be a Buckeye," BuckeyeGrove.com editor Kevin Noon said.

"Because of that, there have been very few cases of players backing out on an Ohio State commitment. That style of recruiting, while nerve-racking for Ohio State fans, has created a sense of ease among the players that Ohio State targets.


Ohio State's offense might have a slightly different look when Pryor takes the reigns.
"While the Buckeyes never wavered about their desire to land Pryor, there never has been a sense of panic or desperation in trying to get the nation's No. 1 recruit to get things over with. Ultimately, that patience had to help the Buckeyes while Terrelle was trying to make his big decision."

OSU does it right. They handpick a few players every year, and make their case. They demonstrate that playing at OSU is a very special thing, especially to kids from Ohio. Very few kids turn down the Buckeyes. Tressel has actually cemented this process and mastered it. Again, bash and bang away, but respect the man and the program. The Buckeyes have earned at least that much.

Who says it won't happen to Pryor?

The good thing for him, is that he played in the toughest District in the PIAA during his high school carrier in Class AA. HOWEVER, he has not had much experience against the AAA & AAAA levels of the state. Another thing good for him, is that Todd B. has played a full season and will be able to be a bit of mentor to him.

Stop. Listen. Learn.


Pryor brushed off local talk show criticism about his image stemming from his non-announcement last month, and a scuffle earlier this month between some Jeannette players and another team after a recent state playoff game.
"I'm not worried about none of that," Pryor said. "I think the football field will speak for itself. I mean, that's why you are here, right? Whether I was a bad kid or not, you are still here."
Pryor said he doesn't seek attention. "Ask my teammates, ask anybody around here. That's not how I am. I don't like being in the spotlight at all. I didn't ask to be No. 1 in the country."

No I cannot blame him for investigating. In fact I think it was a really mature decision he made when he changed his mind on signing day eve. I think it showed that he does have a lot of respect for the other schools, even though it was likely OSU all the time.

I don't really know how good of a chance they had. He did not sound interested at all. But I guess if you're mentioed, there is some kind of hope! LOL... I had it up until noon on Weds. as well!

Also, addressing the typical jackassery from Sybil, Tressel plays to win when it suits, and plays not lose when that is more apropos. See the Michigan game in 2006. That was a wide-open offense that laid 42 on the Wolverines. 2001 was a different story...Krenzel (as Boeckman is) was a QB who can only be trusted to manage a game, not take one over.

I don't really know how good of a chance they had. He did not sound interested at all. But I guess if you're mentioed, there is some kind of hope! LOL... I had it up until noon on Weds. as well!

All the PSU fans i see and hear around these parts who were excited because they thought he was coming don't seem to like the kid anymore... even though we didn't see much of him around here (thankfully we have FSN PGH). I even see some slamming on the message boards. Truth be told as a michigan fan I'm not happy, but I still hope the kid does good. I'm sure the woverine boards are full of the slams as well.

We made our case to keep this kid in state. But hey, it's his choice. Michigan probably is blasting him.

I'm sure i'll curse him several times over the next four years!

Still... good for him... right choice

i can't beleive this kid is getting talked about more than the draft and nfl players on the move.. he is just a kid.... it's not like i'm losing sleep over him not going to psu. he might be a good qb 4 the buckeyes but they will still not win a championship in the near future..

and this past season to where o state went to the bcs was b/c it was a crazy yr with teams losing and winning.. i mean damn.. KU was ranked 2nd in the nation.. i mean shit.. football is crazy

The beauty of message boards is that predictions are forever, my friend.

This time we don't have to fight OSU to get this kind of a QB!

No, probably VaTech. All signs point to that being his destination, but anything can happen in 12 months i guess.

I just cannot see any QB's of this type or (percieved) quality going to PSU. If you play D, it's the ticket, mind you, but I just cannot see it.

Barring any major overhauls of the staff...

My father-in-law is a PSU nut and hears that there is supposedly some type of meeting this week which may well determine his fate... rumor is that there may be a MAJOR housecleaning in the works in the next year or two... meaning any potentioal replacements rumored to take over at PSU (Jay, whomever else we have been hearing for the last few years) will not even be there to take over...

LOL.. a former employer of mine once took me to a dinner where there were a good many PSU boosters in attendance. One of them told me that one time (about 2002/3ish) he personally went to Joes door with a few others to let him know that he was out. Joes reply? "GET THE HELL OFF OF MY PORCH!"
