Larry Johnson Sr., Dylan Thompson and Urban Meyer

The above photo was taken during an in-home visit to 2014 defensive end commit Dylan Thompson (of which the departed Mike Vrabel was the lead recruiter.)

Granted, Thompson was already in the fold prior to Johnson's arrival, but damn does that man just ooze swagger. Hard to envision a better recruiting duo, and it's even harder to imagine a recruit saying "no" to the two men in this picture. Johnson has definitely hit the ground sprinting.

Be afraid, other colleges who don't employ Urban Meyer and Larry Johnson Sr., be very afraid.

I dont always root for college athletics, but when i do (which is most of the time) I choose THE Ohio State Buckeyes.

I like the confidence it takes to wear something different but still well done. Trust this lady; coach oozes swagger.

I'm digging Dylan's shirt

Since we as fans dissect everything, my shirt ratings would be:
1. Urban Meyer - bold and fashionable, not to mention OSU colors.
2. Dylan Thompson - representing the Bucks
3. Larry Johnson - can't go wrong with classic white button up

I'm digging Dylan's too!

You don't like UFM's shirt? This is what I thought of:
 

 
EDIT: YouTube fail. Sorry.
EDIT 2: So maybe it does work.

Well this is great and all, but to make a case for reasonable expectations, we need to see these high rated classes pan out on the field in terms of BIG championships and better, national championships.  It has been 11 years since we won a national championship.  Once a decade (or more) is not that good of a track record when you consistently recruit elite talent - or what the services say is elite talent/classes.   Now, if we were recruiting at the level of say, Illinois, then just making a bowl game would be the expectation.  Proof is in the pudding.

Let's get real. Neither one has proven anything at TOSU. The future looks bright, but we need hard results and QUICK. Undefeated or it's a bust. GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Brutus' Left Nut's picture

If you standard for proving anything is undefeated or bust...then I'd say Urban Meyer has proven something.  Although you have to look way back to his first year as head coach at tOSU, Urban Frank Meyer has an undefeated season.  He's also never lost a regular season game at OSU.  Still much to prove, but I'd hardly say he hasn't proven anything at OSU.

BUCKfutter's picture

Going 12-0 in your first season using largely the same squad that had a losing record in the prior season, with a fullback at MLB?  Pulling a top 5 recruiting class in your first season after starting the process helplessly behind?
Urban has proven nothing.

If only this thread was about Carlos, this post would be incredibly awesome.

You gotta love the fact that LJS is wearing a suit and Meyer is wearing his PJ's.

Battles are sometimes won by generals; wars are nearly always won by sergeants and privates. Football is no different, the guys down in the trenches win the games, not the coach.
