A million times this. I assume the staff expects a few transfers, but I don't want to be anywhere close to an over signing situation.
stupid double post
As I don't follow recruiting too seriously, I now know why I saw Fickell and LJ Sr. eating breakfast at the Pickerington Bob Evans last Monday morning.
The first R movie I remember seeing in the theater was Stripes. I was 9. Guess my mom wasn't looking for any Parent of The Year awards in 1982. My 2 favorite Ramis parts:
[when Russell is teaching English class]
Russell Ziskey: Okay, I know you're anxious to jump right in and start speaking English, but there's a couple of things I need to know first, because I've never done this before. So, how many of you would say you speak English fairly well, but with some difficulties?
Russell Ziskey: A little English?
[a man raises his hand]
Russell Ziskey: Yes? You speak some English?
Man learning English: Son of bitch. Shit.
Class: [in unison] Son of bitch. Shit.
John Winger: C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin.
Russell Ziskey: Well I got the shit kicked out of me in Wisconsin once. Forget it!
I think it's easy to blame Ayers for all the stuff that went down. He deserves his share to be sure. But the nature of the OSU hoops job 20 years ago was to get Ohio's best players. The problem was Ohio's best players were either not that good, criminals, or in a couple cases, BOTH. Greg Simpson, Charles Macon, Damon Stringer, Jami Bosley, Shaun Stonerook, Jermaine Tate, and on and on. We didn't have the national profile T. Matta has brought to the program, so we weren't going to get high profile guys from all over. Basically, Jim Jackson made his career, and the other shmucks killed it. He only got half a season more as a head coach since he was fired here.
No way in hell is he a HOF coach, but if he was a program killer, he had an awful lot of help. Boban Savovic is 10x the program killer Ayers was for us.
