Weekend Shots from the Schott

Written December 13th, 2011 by Joe Laing

Usually, we reserve “Shots” for game experience recaps.  However, given Meyer Mayhem, here’s some whispers and stuff that Joe’s been hearing:

After three straight days of being at the Schott I overheard and saw quite a few things.


  • Football recruiting is turning up and in full force. Positive news coming out about Tommy Schutt, Jordan Diamond, Kyle Dodson, SeVon Pittman. Sounds like all should be Buckeyes!!! Look for updates as the week goes on (ed- Joe wrote this on Sunday… two down, two to go). As of know next weekend should include Cyrus Jones and Noah Spence.
  • Talked to an ex-player who said it has been ratcheted up a few notches in terms of intensity. Meyer has them working like they’ve never seen before. Expect a different looking bunch in the Gator Bowl.

Use The Bench, Thad!


  • The chatter wasn’t about being upset about the loss- it went back to what we have heard about in the past in terms of Matta’s struggle with his in-game rotation. It was easy to see that Thomas and Craft were struggling to catch their breath at times and everyone was wondering why no Weatherspoon. I heard that he was in to speak to Thad about it today. I feel that he could have provided a spark off the bench.
  • Players were upbeat and back to work. Early season losses don’t hurt nearly as bad in basketball as they do in football.
  • The other comments were that with Sully it is a 10 pt victory for the good guys.
  • Michael Redd was in to work out driving his Ferrari. Doesn’t sound like he wants to come back to Ohio to play ball. So Cavs fans don’t get your hopes up.


  • Big split this weekend with the Miami Redhawks. We were ranked 4th coming into the weekend. This is a very good hockey team. One of the best we have had in quite some time.

Women’s Basketball

  • They defeated Canisus to stay undefeated on the year. With wins previously over LSU, Oklahoma, and FSU they are really surprising people this year- They have gone from unranked to top 15.
  • Congrats to Amber Stokes for receiving her diploma today in under 3 full years. Quite an accomplishment while playing a college sport.

    It sounds like they gave up on the offensive lineman who originally committed to OSU and then went to the skunks. What’s happening with him?

    There is no news about him because there is no news about him. Kyle Kalis is going to Michigan.

    That doesn’t mean that the coaching staff has given up on him- it means that there is absolutely no mutual interest from his end and it is not worth wasting time on.

    Kalis has gone too far down the rabbit hole to turn back.

    If Kalis wants to go to Michigan, dont let the door hit you in the Rear. If you cant decide between OSU and SCUM, then I dont want you in scarlet and gray. Have fun blocking Washington, Schutt, and Pittman!
