Housteau Chat Archive: April 7

Gary Housteau stopped by this afternoon for a chat with Bucknuts premium subscribers. We have a transcript posted below.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 9:53:55 AM)
Hello and welcome!

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 9:54:25 AM)
What's on your minds today?

JimC (Apr 7, 2006 9:56:41 AM)
Hi Gary, What's going on with Cotton?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 9:56:41 AM)
Hi Jim C...It hasn't been looking good for Cotton for some time now. He's had one foot out the door for quite a while now and it looks like the other one has vacated the building now as well. It's a shame if it's indeed true, but it's not really a surprise at all. I'm sure JT will have to address his absence tomorrow.

JimC (Apr 7, 2006 10:00:36 AM)
Will there be some attrition on the team this Spring? If so, what will we do with the extra schollies?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:00:36 AM)
Yes Jim there likely will be some attrition between now and the start of the season. I believe Brandon Maupin played in the spring last year and he was a name being banded about last year like Cotton and some others are this year...and Maupin didn't last long after spring ball if my memory serves me correctly. There are some names that keep popping up on the endangered list, some have been on it for a while, so there is likely a chance that some of those guys won't make it. And I won't say names because I don't want to cast a negative light on their situation.

hondo (Apr 7, 2006 10:02:40 AM)
Gary, have you heard anything about D'Andrea's injury?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:02:40 AM)
Hi hondo....Yes I have heard some things about D'Andrea's injury and I have concerns. There's no good or bad way to speak about injurys so how much he plays or practices tells us all what we need to know. I just wish Mike the best. He's been one of my favorites for quite some time now.

JimC (Apr 7, 2006 10:05:27 AM)
I'm excited about the Jersy scrimage!! Who shines and maybe wins a job?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:05:27 AM)
Jim I'd like to see a guy like Laurinaitis shine tomorrow and move a step closer to winning a job. I can say that confidently because I've been told that he is one of the guys that's been very impressive this spring. I think he just might end up battling John Kerr in the middle when it's all said and done. That's just speculation on my part. And for those of you who don't know...I've been a Kerr fan since his Ignatius days.

hondo (Apr 7, 2006 10:08:42 AM)
Gary, followup on D'Andrea. is he currently practicing?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:08:42 AM)
Hondo I'm about 180 miles away from the WHAC so I only know what most of you know about players this spring. The media's access isn't exactly terrific so even Steve and those guys in Columbus don't know much except what they're told. I don't know how much or if at all D'Andrea is going at it now but from what I've been told when I make some phone calls is that he's not having the kind or is able to have the kind of spring he was hoping to have.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:09:26 AM)
It seems as if the questions and answering are coming through all right now so please if you have anything on your mind, then fire away.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:10:01 AM)
I've heard that Chris Wells has looked fantastic on occasion this spring...surprise.

whistler (Apr 7, 2006 10:12:51 AM)
why hasn't bucknuts released more columns or insights to whats going on in springball. I know they pretty strict with the media but im sure you guys get info from coaches or players or anybody. thanks.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:12:51 AM)
Hi whistler...I think the staff has done a pretty good job with the restrictions to the players that are imposed on the media. Nobody is better than Steve with getting fresh and solid information out and that mind set permiates from the top down to the bottom on this web site. I make a lot of phone calls and get privileged information, some of which I can't say or print because my sources would be revealed. But the information coming out this spring is very controlled for the most part.

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 10:16:44 AM)
Brandon Saine sounds like he is truly a gifted player. I got the impression early there wasn't such a warm and fuzzy with the Bucks. Doesn't he sound like he should be getting the full court press? What impact do you think Chris Wells might have on his decision?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:16:44 AM)
There are Chris Wells's to a degree on every campus when you're a big-time recruit so that should realistically be taken out of the equation. That's more of an excuse than anything if you ask me. That being said. I love Brandon Saine and I would be doing the fullcourt press on him if I were O-State. O-State is the hip way of say Ohio State..haha. Saine is super fast and has really good size. He's no Chris Wells but who is. And realistically, Saine could be thinking Wells will be there for three years and out. Saine takes a redshirt year and it's his job for a good two or three years right? Not a bad gig huh?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:17:46 AM)
If I haven't said it before Edbuck, I'll say it now, I'll take Brandon Saine and Jordan Mabin as my two running backs this year and be happy as a lark!

JimC (Apr 7, 2006 10:23:20 AM)
If Kerr and James L are in the middle, who fills out the LB? How about DB's? Is Amos penciled in?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:23:20 AM)
Jim you have to know that Freeman will man one position be it Sam or Will and I just don't know enough about who's repping at which positions this spring to say for sure. I've heard good things on Kerr and Laurinaitis this spring and I believe both are repping in the middle but that could be incorrect. I'd love to see Homan in there some where. We will all have a better idea tomorrow I'm certain. At DB, I'm sure Antonio Smith has had a great offseason to put him high on the depth chart now but he'll have it tough fighting off an Amos for one. I for one would love to see Jenkins and Amos at the corners.

whistler (Apr 7, 2006 10:26:00 AM)
whats happen with albert dukes, it seems like everybody's forgetting about him and talking about the youngsters.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:26:00 AM)
His name is still out there. He's in the top six right now and that's all that matters. I guess the biggest surprise of all right now continues to Robiskie. Not that he's not worthy of it but he's obviously been impressive enough to be considered ahead of guys like Dukes and Hartline already.

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 10:30:58 AM)
Last year it seemed like most of the players were in place (except QB), and anticipation was high for the season. Doesn't it seem like this year is even more exciting since there is so much talent, but we just aren't sure how or where they are going to perform? I guess it also helps knowing that we are heading into the season with offensive weapons.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:30:58 AM)
I couldn't agree more edbuck. For me I like it this way because even though the defense lost a boatload of talent last year, most of the guys that are ready to step in now are guys that we all followed closely in recruiting and wanted them to come to Ohio State in a big way. And now a lot of those guys are going to having a chance to play extended minutes for the first time. I'm confident the defense will play well because there is a lot of talented players ready to step in. And on offense, the talent is just plain ridiculous. From Ted Ginn on down. Ginn is truly a special talent of whom we may never see the likes of again in Ohio Stadium. Troy Smith already has two victories over Michigan. If the offense is allowed to operate up to their full capacity this year, then this could be one of them most prolific units ever to play in Ohio Stadium. I'm throwing out a lot of superlatives already but I truly believe this offense is deserving of it. I'm excited!

redondo (Apr 7, 2006 10:34:21 AM)
Gary - In a clever twist, to add extra interest, will the winning team in the Jersey Crimmage get to pick which style of jersey - new or old - to wear in practice?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:34:22 AM)
That's a great thought redondo but you know the younger generation is more likely to adopt the new uni's much quicker than some of us old fogies who aren't as eager to see the traditional look go by the wayside. I know new jersey styles equal more revenue so that's the bottom line. But I don't think Penn State will ever cave with their look and I was hoping that O-State would do the same. It doesn't look that way now. I'm sure I'll like the new look eventually but it doesn't mean that I want to like it.

rbuck (Apr 7, 2006 10:35:06 AM)
Hi Gary, Will Devon Torrence play football??

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:35:06 AM)
Hi rbuck...I assume he will but I don't know that answer.

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 10:37:09 AM)
I was a little late. Did you discuss Cotton's status, and have you heard anything on how Denlinger is doing?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:37:09 AM)
Ed it doesn't look good for Cotton but at the same time I don't know if there is anything official that's happened with him as of yet. As far as Denlinger is concerned, I have heard good reports on him and that's obviously a good thing. I'd like to see Denlinger and Larimore patrol the interrior together at some point in the future.

MacAuley (Apr 7, 2006 10:38:05 AM)
We need Dukes in the line up to continue the Chris Gamble - Santonio Holmes dreadlocks tradition!

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:38:05 AM)
And to help with the Deonte Thompson sweepstakes MacAuley! That's what's really important at this time! Smile!

JimC (Apr 7, 2006 10:41:14 AM)
How is Lyons injury? Does he make it back?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:41:14 AM)
Hi Jim...when I first about Lyons injury, it sounded as if his career was in jeopardy. I don't believe that to be the case from what I was told now but at the same time, he's had a hard time being injury free in his career, a la, Devin Jordan, and so that doesn't bode well for his future. I wish him the best though. Devon Lyons is truly and honestly one of the friendliest players I've ever been in contact with at Ohio State.

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 10:46:22 AM)
I wasn't a big Bollman fan in the beginning regarding the OL, but if you look at the guys he's sent to the NFL, and the steady improvement in game performance and quality depth, it's hard to be critical. Do you think this is going to be the best OL in the Tressel/Bollman era?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:46:22 AM)
First of all, even when Bollman was getting a lot of heat early on for the offense's performance or lack of it, I was always of the belief it was more a function of the predictable style more than the actual performance. When six guys have to block at the point of attack on a regular basis, then execution is going to suffer. But Bollman has always been a good recruiter according to the players that I talk to and that's what I like about him more than anything. Bollman's a terrific coach if you ask me and now that JT is using all the talent at his disposal, and believes in the talent at his disposal, the line will continue to sparkle because the depth is waiting there in the wings as well. O-State could be come a O-line factory in the coming years.

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 10:46:51 AM)
What did you think of the new jerseys?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:46:51 AM)
I'm not crazy about them but I'm sure the younger generation loves them. Just win baby!

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 10:53:12 AM)
Have you seen Dan Barry play? What is your evaluation of him and can he work his way up to an offer? Did Mentor Lake Catholic have a QB last year who ended up signing somewhere?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:53:12 AM)
I like Dan Barry edbuck... I've watched him more since I met him in San Antonio and I like what I've seen ever since. He held his own in San Antonio and I've watched some video on him and he does a nice job. I think he will be one of the O-linemen in state to get some consideration but I don't know if it will get him an offer. I think he has to perform well at OSU's camp if he has any hopes of getting an offer. Lake Catholic's QB was Ricky Stanzi and he signed with Iowa and I think he can be a tremendous QB at the next level. He's mobile for a big guy but can throw the ball all over the field. Him and Arvell Nelson, similar in style, both went to Iowa and if you ask me right now who will have the better career there, I would go with Stanzi right now. I like Dan Barry though. I like Nick Schepis from Walsh Jesuit also.

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 10:54:24 AM)
Are you guys going to have access to the jersey scrimmage?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:54:24 AM)
It's open to the media but no cameras are allow so that partially neuters me! haha! Steve and Dave will be there for sure but I would still have to change my work schedule around if I'm going to make it also.

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 10:58:36 AM)
To further develope the offensive's potential, it sounded in Rory Nicol's interview like the tight ends are going to add even more dimension to the offense this year. Do you like that idea (tongue in cheek)?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 10:58:36 AM)
I've been waiting for the TE to sprout in JT's offense for many seasons now so I'll continue to hope and wait that it happens. For the most part, over 20 years now, the TE has been a glorified blocker more than a pass catcher. I'm not saying that TE has not ever caught any passes, Hartsock had a decent senior season but I've never seen any potential Tony Gonzalez's (KC chiefs) to this point. It is a novel idea yes edbuck (with tongue firmly planted in cheek).

Guest (Apr 7, 2006 11:00:23 AM)
Gary, have you heard if there is any recruits that are close to commiting?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:00:24 AM)
Hondo asked about any imminent commitments on the horizon...I would have to say none that I'm aware of. Donnie Evege is certain to at some point...just not sure when.

edbuck51 (Apr 7, 2006 11:01:32 AM)
There was a running back from St. Thomas Aquinas in Canton who we talked about a few years ago. Then the OHSAA wouldn't let him play his senior year due to his age. Was that the end of his football career?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:01:32 AM)
He went to Indiana as far as I can remember. Not sure if he made it there or not. And I'm not sure of his name at this moment even though I invterviewed him while he was there.

crazybuckfan40 (Apr 7, 2006 11:03:16 AM)
Any word on Derrell Johnson coming from your area??

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:03:16 AM)
The latest that I heard about Johnson is that he visited last week, I don't even know if that was an official or unofficial visit, and nothing has since resulted from it. I understand the interest is still there with both parties but it's still on hold at this time.

crazybuckfan40 (Apr 7, 2006 11:06:41 AM)
Hey Gary, you might of already answered this and if so, just pass over it, but I was just wondering if you had heard back from coach Ginn on the Barksdale situation?? Also who else might be on the tour bus with him. Thanks.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:06:41 AM)
Hi crazybuckfan...because of my work schedule I'm not always able to answer calls when I get them and so I've had to play phone tag with Coach this week. I can say I've noticed that he's been harder than ever to get a hold of in recent months but when I do touch base with him again I will find out. I called him again before my chat started hoping to catch him for an update but I got his voice message again. Sorry. I don't have an answer for Barksdale yet or others on the tour bus as of yet. I do know he's opened it up to a lot of players.

crazybuckfan40 (Apr 7, 2006 11:09:07 AM)
Is Lebron Daiel good enough to garner an offer form tOSU??

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:09:07 AM)
Size may do him in when it all comes down to it but he's right there talentwise. He may be too small to play on the defensive line and a step too slow to play linebacker. But he can play the game. He'll make Glenville a lot better this year. What I thought was going to be a rebuilding year is turning into a reloading year.

Guest (Apr 7, 2006 11:12:27 AM)
Irrizary was supposed to be a Gonzales type TE. If he could have stayed around, do you think he could have playe like that, or would they have used him more like most of the TE's we've seen thus far in JT's offense?

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:12:27 AM)
Irizarry is now toiling at TE for the Penguins this year and I intend to make it down to Stambaugh Stadium this spring to check on his progress. Until I actually see a Kellen Winslow line up at TE for Ohio State I will continue to not hold my breath waiting on one of his ilk to do so.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:13:45 AM)
Anything else on your mind ask it now or we'll call it a session.

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:17:35 AM)
Well let's hope we all will feel great about the Buckeyes this time tomorrow. I'm sure a lot of names will surface to make us all even more excited about the future. I'm sure everyone is anxious to see how Chris Wells does tomorrow for example. Maybe TGII will play some on defense and surprise us all though I doubt it. I'm sure the offense will teach the young defense a few things tomorrow and it should. I'll call it wrap for today and I want to thank every one for participating in the chat today. Have a great weekend and go Buckeyes!

JimC (Apr 7, 2006 11:18:04 AM)
Thanks Gary, good chat!!

GaryHousteau (Apr 7, 2006 11:18:04 AM)
Thank you Jim.

As far as Denlinger is concerned, I have heard good reports on him and that's obviously a good thing. I'd like to see Denlinger and Larimore patrol the interrior together at some point in the future.

We need Dukes in the line up to continue the Chris Gamble - Santonio Holmes dreadlocks tradition!

And to help with the Deonte Thompson sweepstakes MacAuley! That's what's really important at this time! Smile!

How is Lyons injury? Does he make it back?

(Apr 7, 2006 10:41:14 AM)
Hi Jim...when I first about Lyons injury, it sounded as if his career was in jeopardy. I don't believe that to be the case from what I was told now but at the same time, he's had a hard time being injury free in his career, a la, Devin Jordan, and so that doesn't bode well for his future. I wish him the best though. Devon Lyons is truly and honestly one of the friendliest players I've ever been in contact with at Ohio State.

I wasn't a big Bollman fan in the beginning regarding the OL, but if you look at the guys he's sent to the NFL, and the steady improvement in game performance and quality depth, it's hard to be critical. Do you think this is going to be the best OL in the Tressel/Bollman era?

(Apr 7, 2006 10:46:22 AM)
First of all, even when Bollman was getting a lot of heat early on for the offense's performance or lack of it, I was always of the belief it was more a function of the predictable style more than the actual performance. When six guys have to block at the point of attack on a regular basis, then execution is going to suffer. But Bollman has always been a good recruiter according to the players that I talk to and that's what I like about him more than anything. Bollman's a terrific coach if you ask me and now that JT is using all the talent at his disposal, and believes in the talent at his disposal, the line will continue to sparkle because the depth is waiting there in the wings as well. O-State could be come a O-line factory in the coming years.

What did you think of the new jerseys?

(Apr 7, 2006 10:46:51 AM)
I'm not crazy about them but I'm sure the younger generation loves them. Just win baby!

(Apr 7, 2006 10:53:12 AM)
Have you seen Dan Barry play? What is your evaluation of him and can he work his way up to an offer? Did Mentor Lake Catholic have a QB last year who ended up signing somewhere?

(Apr 7, 2006 10:53:12 AM)
I like Dan Barry edbuck... I've watched him more since I met him in San Antonio and I like what I've seen ever since. He held his own in San Antonio and I've watched some video on him and he does a nice job. I think he will be one of the O-linemen in state to get some consideration but I don't know if it will get him an offer. I think he has to perform well at OSU's camp if he has any hopes of getting an offer. Lake Catholic's QB was Ricky Stanzi and he signed with Iowa and I think he can be a tremendous QB at the next level. He's mobile for a big guy but can throw the ball all over the field. Him and Arvell Nelson, similar in style, both went to Iowa and if you ask me right now who will have the better career there, I would go with Stanzi right now. I like Dan Barry though. I like Nick Schepis from Walsh Jesuit also.

(Apr 7, 2006 10:54:24 AM)
Are you guys going to have access to the jersey scrimmage?

(Apr 7, 2006 10:54:24 AM)
It's open to the media but no cameras are allow so that partially neuters me! haha! Steve and Dave will be there for sure but I would still have to change my work schedule around if I'm going to make it also.

(Apr 7, 2006 10:58:36 AM)
To further develope the offensive's potential, it sounded in Rory Nicol's interview like the tight ends are going to add even more dimension to the offense this year. Do you like that idea (tongue in cheek)?

(Apr 7, 2006 10:58:36 AM)
I've been waiting for the TE to sprout in JT's offense for many seasons now so I'll continue to hope and wait that it happens. For the most part, over 20 years now, the TE has been a glorified blocker more than a pass catcher. I'm not saying that TE has not ever caught any passes, Hartsock had a decent senior season but I've never seen any potential Tony Gonzalez's (KC chiefs) to this point. It is a novel idea yes edbuck (with tongue firmly planted in cheek).

(Apr 7, 2006 11:00:23 AM)
Gary, have you heard if there is any recruits that are close to commiting?

(Apr 7, 2006 11:00:24 AM)
Hondo asked about any imminent commitments on the horizon...I would have to say none that I'm aware of. Donnie Evege is certain to at some point...just not sure when.

(Apr 7, 2006 11:01:32 AM)
There was a running back from St. Thomas Aquinas in Canton who we talked about a few years ago. Then the OHSAA wouldn't let him play his senior year due to his age. Was that the end of his football career?

(Apr 7, 2006 11:01:32 AM)
He went to Indiana as far as I can remember. Not sure if he made it there or not. And I'm not sure of his name at this moment even though I invterviewed him while he was there.

(Apr 7, 2006 11:03:16 AM)
Any word on Derrell Johnson coming from your area??

(Apr 7, 2006 11:03:16 AM)
The latest that I heard about Johnson is that he visited last week, I don't even know if that was an official or unofficial visit, and nothing has since resulted from it. I understand the interest is still there with both parties but it's still on hold at this time.

(Apr 7, 2006 11:06:41 AM)
Hey Gary, you might of already answered this and if so, just pass over it, but I was just wondering if you had heard back from coach Ginn on the Barksdale situation?? Also who else might be on the tour bus with him. Thanks.

(Apr 7, 2006 11:06:41 AM)
Hi crazybuckfan...because of my work schedule I'm not always able to answer calls when I get them and so I've had to play phone tag with Coach this week. I can say I've noticed that he's been harder than ever to get a hold of in recent months but when I do touch base with him again I will find out. I called him again before my chat started hoping to catch him for an update but I got his voice message again. Sorry. I don't have an answer for Barksdale yet or others on the tour bus as of yet. I do know he's opened it up to a lot of players.

(Apr 7, 2006 11:09:07 AM)
Is Lebron Daiel good enough to garner an offer form tOSU??

(Apr 7, 2006 11:09:07 AM)
Size may do him in when it all comes down to it but he's right there talentwise. He may be too small to play on the defensive line and a step too slow to play linebacker. But he can play the game. He'll make Glenville a lot better this year. What I thought was going to be a rebuilding year is turning into a reloading year.

(Apr 7, 2006 11:12:27 AM)
Irrizary was supposed to be a Gonzales type TE. If he could have stayed around, do you think he could have playe like that, or would they have used him more like most of the TE's we've seen thus far in JT's offense?

(Apr 7, 2006 11:12:27 AM)
Irizarry is now toiling at TE for the Penguins this year and I intend to make it down to Stambaugh Stadium this spring to check on his progress. Until I actually see a Kellen Winslow line up at TE for Ohio State I will continue to not hold my breath waiting on one of his ilk to do so.

(Apr 7, 2006 11:13:45 AM)
Anything else on your mind ask it now or we'll call it a session.

(Apr 7, 2006 11:17:35 AM)
Well let's hope we all will feel great about the Buckeyes this time tomorrow. I'm sure a lot of names will surface to make us all even more excited about the future. I'm sure everyone is anxious to see how Chris Wells does tomorrow for example. Maybe TGII will play some on defense and surprise us all though I doubt it. I'm sure the offense will teach the young defense a few things tomorrow and it should. I'll call it wrap for today and I want to thank every one for participating in the chat today. Have a great weekend and go Buckeyes!

(Apr 7, 2006 11:18:04 AM)
Thanks Gary, good chat!!

(Apr 7, 2006 11:18:04 AM)
Thank you Jim.
