Ohio State football and basketball recruiting.
Urban misses out on yet another prospect.
Ok that's it bring back Fickell!
can we fire him if Wimbush goes to PSU?
That damn Urban Meyer. Who wanted him to coach here anyway? Franklin offers early playing time to players that are used to being the star of the team. They do not want to sit the bench. PSU has a depleted roster and it will be some time before they are relevant again even with a couple years of this type of recruiting. If they go 5-7 in 2014 the party as we see it today will be over.
Can't say we didn't expect it though. It's a disappointment, but I still think we'll do ok. If there's a bright side to all this, our coaching staff can develop players. Guys like Darron Lee are stepping up, so it's not all about the 5 stars. But it sucks that a great coach like Ed Warriner doesn't get a chance to coach him.
Even Squirrels hate Michigan
Ok... Time to start burning the couches.
Panic! Danger Will Robinson! Danger! Ahhhhhhh!
That tweet did not rub me the right way.. guess he will now for his four years of college find out who really deserves the "THE" before their name

If he was not wise enough to pick OSU over PSU...let PSU
Just announced my commitment to THE Penn State University!!

Oh, that's the way it's gonna be, huh? Normally I wish everyone we miss out on well, but I come Oct 25, I hope we cast a little doubt into the mind of Mr. Jenkins.
Oh how precious.
Urban: 98 | Penn State: 37
Bracing myself for Wimbush now...
Hopefully Franklin sucks in game because he's tearin shit up out of it.
Wimbush to PSU.
I'd be lying if I said this one didn't bother me, I really liked Wimbush. But I trust Urban and that he'll get us another great class.

This will help with the recruitment of Gibson, hopefully.
misses and YET another....... Ah well, we have 3 QB's next year and 1 preferred walk on , probably felt there was no room. Who cares! Go Bucks!
Franklin is no doubt having success right now, but I was never really impressed with him at Vandy. He has to turn these guys into stars quick or the luster will wear off. I remember a few short years ago, some fat man up north was signing great classes and telling everyone they were back. How's that worked out so far?
We have the coach and the program...no need to worry
This. I'd rather have Urban, his system/staff, and a bunch of 3-star players that want to play at Ohio State than anything Franklin and PSU can offer. Any. Day.
Is it official? If not, quit worrying. If so, big deal. Geez!
So...Penn State is beating Michigan to the May recruiting Championship trophy this year? I don't see what the big deal is. I remember all the freaking out and panic about Michigan's great class early on last year. Things will sort themselves out over the next 9 months.
Now, if Hackenberg wins the September Heisman over Devin Gardner, then we'll have cause for concern.
I wonder how many overtimes the scUM/PSU game will go to this year.
You know what? Good for them, and good for the conference. BUT, I take it personally when these kids use 'THE' in front of the random universities they select. It feels like a direct jab at us. IDK--maybe it's just me. We will see which "THE" comes out ahead over their four years. Hopefully, they will both be at this years game when we hang 70 on them. lol
