Several years back one of the all-time great college football programs went thru a scandal and a down period. Even though that team, Alabama, had a great history and had previously been coached by an icon/ one of the best coaches ever (Bear Bryant) they had never brought in big name coach with a Championship of his own. Saban came in and signed (over signed) top classes...and it's worked-out pretty well.
It's hard not to see the comparison with where Bama was a few years ago with Saban and where Ohio State is now. We had a lesser scandal, then brought in a big name coach with huge credentials and Chapionships under his belt, someone capable of stacking up to our own coaching icon (Woody Hayes). Meyer is about to finish up his 2nd great recruiting class (without over signing) and is starting to get his own players in place to run his system.
It looks like we're on the verge of a big, big run for the years ahead. No matter that it was 12 degrees this AM, it's obviously springtime in Old Columbus Town. I'm pumped!
