Ohio State recruiting: National Signing Day '13 Podcast

Urban's on as much sleep as we are. - Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

National Signing Day 2013 is a wrap, and Urban Meyer has his best class ever at Ohio State. At least we think.

The Urban Meyer era is kind of the best, is it not? Ohio State's second signing class of the Meyer-era almost certainly couldn't really have gone better. Conference play for the rest of the Big Ten teams that aren't named the Michigan Wolverines is about to get considerably more unpleasant. And you know what Michigan? Just because you're you, we'll say it won't get any easier for y'all either. Deal?

Depending on which major recruiting rankings you're looking at, Ohio State has no worse than the third best class in the country (and that's from the oft criticized folks at ESPN). Rivals and 24/7 both have the Buckeyes as the second best class in the nation, while Scout crowns Ohio State's 2013 recruiting class as college football's best. We know Alabama has something like 23409834 5-stars in theirs, so that's some serious praise.

In terms of a sheer breakdown of talent geographically, Ohio is well represented with 10 signees (though Urban Meyer admitted in his National Signing Day 2013 press conference he'd like as many as 4 more per class), and Texas (we're talking about Texas) shows Tom Herman's influence with 3.

We'll talk all these things and more, as we kick off another edition of "Hangout in the Holy Land", and because we're crazy people, we're doing it live.
