I'm more excited about this offer than the Allen offer. I think Harris fits what Meyer wants to do with his offense better than Allen does. I'm intrigued by the Zack Darlington visit, too. Would happily take either or both of those guys in this class.
Where is the line for signing up to be a completely inept college coach who dupes the school into signing away its football success for an ungodly sum? Do I just need to line up behind RonP? Sweet mercy, this is atrocious.
Give me UNC and Duke instead of UVA. For the basketball rivalry alone that should be Delany's number 1 choice.
If it was anyone but Devin Gardner at QB for Hoke's team, I'd be massively concerned. Right now, I'm concerned, but excited to see how the defense and offense Ohio State will have in Urban's second year will coalesce. Should be fantastic to watch.
Urban himself has said scrambling is an area that Braxton needs to improve. Manziel is far and away a better scrambler than Braxton. I'd give Braxton the slight edge as a runner based on what we saw in games 1-9. If he can get his passing to a high enough level, Braxton can be an all-time great at OSU. Improvement by Braxton in the passing game should be the every other team in the country's worst nightmare.
The poster's being thorough. It's a (semi)satirical take on the state of Ohio State's roster. It's all in good fun.
The thing I most appreciate about all the Woody stories and quotes is his undeniable zeal for winning. He imparted that to Bo, but It never, ever left Coach Hayes' mind. Even his downfall was the product of an overwhelming hatred for losing. I can never condone punching a player, but I truly wish his competitiveness would seep into society a bit more. I truly get frustrated at having to contain my innate competitiveness and desire to win at even the tiniest of games. It fries the hell out of me to lose, but showing that is always met with "what is that guy's problem?". It's the same thing I see and love in Coach Meyer. Winning should never go out of style. It's why I voted for the civilization quote from Woody's classics in today's poll. Excellence should be the rule, not the exception. Coach Hayes knew that, Urban knows that, and dammit, I love that Ohio State fans get to enjoy the product of that. Go Bucks.
They probably couldn't get a release from the turtle's people. Privacy laws are such a hindrance, sometimes.
Reading that article was highly reminiscent of the story of Patrick Willis' recruitment. He loved UT and wanted to go there badly, but the staff wouldn't give him the time of day. He ended up at Ole Miss and the rest is history. Granted, there were academic concerns in HS for Willis, but that's no reason to not recruit a great player. UT just seems to be completely out of sorts in ever aspect since the end of the Fulmer era.
It's fascinating to see the moves and countermoves that are happening in the rivalry. Hoke came in and started spouting off about "Ohio", recruited offensive lineman like mad, got some extremely good players at other positions, then beat OSU (caveat: barely, during the worse year resultswise Ohio State football had had since Cooper's last) for the first time in ages. Ohio State responds with the hiring of Meyer, followed by an extremely fast recruiting season for 2012 that saw near miracles worked on the recruiting trail, which was blown away by an unforeseen undefeated season that launched Ohio State back into national prominence, including yet another sweet win against Hoke's boys. Hoke has hit Ohio hard for recruits. Meyer responded by stealing some of Hoke's most sorely needed talent in the Mitten State. Personal thoughts aside, the chess game is fantastic to see after years of Tressel simply battering Carr and Rodriguez into the dirt. Which I loved, by the way, lest anyone think I care about that other team's fortunes too much. All in all, I am excited to see how the rivalry evolves while Meyer and Hoke are at the helm. Hopefully we see a few Ohio State national titles after it's all said and done.
