In eight days L’Christian “Blue” Smith will commit to either Kentucky or Ohio State prior to his nationally televised season opener. The Cats were the first team to offer Blue, but in the last two weeks many reporters and recruiting analysts have changed their predictions from UK to Ohio State.
Of all the predictions, this one from Mike Hartsock of Dayton’s WHIO-TV is my favorite. In the 1:30 VOSOT, almost a minute of it is the sports guy doing at stand-up at Wayne practice. You won’t learn anything new from the package but you might be slightly entertained.
“It would be shocking if it’s not scarlet and gray.” That package-ending sentiment is shared by everyone who has flipped their prediction to Ohio State. There’s no certainty and little substance, just “buzz” about Ohio State. Instead of a prediction, the more appropriate term is assumption.
Vince Marrow once put the fear of God in Drew Franklin, “Never doubt me.” Assuming Blue is locked in to Ohio State will make an ass out of you and everyone, so long as the Big Dog is still in the fight.
