Could Steven Smothers possibly play DB? Not that we need DBs more than WRs, just that I think him at receiver wastes that awesome name. How can you not play smothering defense with the name Smothers?
Tarzan was white...that's not racist. He was saying that he looks like a monster but plays like a woman. Parents made it pretty obvious that he hangs out with thugs.
Hopefully this doesn't happen, but I don't think that is racist. Just because someone suggests someone will get in trouble doesn't mean it is race related. Suggesting that such a statement is being made because of a person's race reveals your own perceptions of race.
Al Capone = Thug. Meyer Lansky = Thug. Don't have to be any specific race to be a thug.
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.
A genetic engineering lab. He goes to HS in Florida.
Got it, thanks. Makes me feel better about Ash.
If Johnson did negatively recruit against OSU while going after Holley, it would be interesting how he would spin it now that he is here haha. Whatever gets the job done though!
Any idea what happened to the ex-Houston DB coach? Did he turn the job down or was Ash our first choice?
I think it's more about the Patriot connection than about Urban.
Edit: replied to wrong comment
I think too much is being made of him not being energetic on the recruiting trail. Think of it like this, there are two types of guys that pick up girls at the bar:
) The decent looking guy who is witty and aggressive and relentlessly hits on girls until he finds one to take home
2) The best looking guy in the bar - he doesn't really care and just kind of hangs out drinking a beer. Girls end up approaching him or he puts in very little effort and still comes up with a girl as good or better than #1.
Fickell would be #1 above. LeBeau would be #2. Players would flock to him without question.
He wouldn't have to go 100% in recruiting or even go on trips to be effective. We could just send Pantoni to say "hey defensive prospect, we have arguably the best defensive coordinator in the NFL over the last 25 years. If you want to meet him, schedule a visit." NFL teams have wanted him as a head coach and he hasn't budged. He is the real deal. Players would come to him.
I think dream scenario would be Dick Lebau as DC. Joseph to come in seems like a slam dunk especially since he will have strong ties in Texas from his Texans days and that could help soften the blow if/when Herman gets a HC job.
Sarkisian was the real OC, Kiffin is just the one that people recognized.
From what I've read in the past they'd take the first to commit. I think Birm once said that Gibson isn't afraid of competition and would still consider OSU if Wimbush commits. Not sure if Wimbush is the same or not. Sounds like Wimbush and Gibson are more likely than Nunez at this point.
Being the starting QB of a playoff team is "making it" in the NFL. There are very few QBs in the NFL and every QB that is a perennial starter has made it. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady don't come around very often...
With some of the better QBs being guys like Big Ben, Flaaco and Romo being from small time football programs, the pool of starting QBs per college coach is very small.
Another thing I thought was interesting, if you look at the list of starting QBs, 3 of them are from NC State (Russell Wilson only played one year at Wisconsin, so I still think of him more as a NC State guy). Rivers, Glennon and Wilson.
Or about the kind of class PSU has
Even in our worst recruiting class, almost every player that commits was used to being the star of their HS team. That's just the jump from HS to D1. Recruiting does seem to be up across the board though.
Also, MSU is a good team. Give credit where credit is due. We didn't play a horrible game. Not a perfect one, but not a horrible one. I think it was more MSU playing a great game than us playng a bad one.
There are no senior LBs...
I don't concern myself with the fickle decisions of young boys either. I just comment on articles concerning the fickle decisions of young boys.
Enter Lane Kiffin
I assume Smart is the favorite if Saban leaves? I feel like that decision wouldn't happen before Raekwon enrolls though. If Saban leaves before Monday but no replacement is announced before Kwon has to enroll, would that help or hurt us?
OSU's LOOSE looks even worse when compared with Clemson and Bama's conference championship game performances.
The biggest reason Kwon won't come to tOSU - he's competitive. A true competitor lives for competing against their rivals. Watching tOSU win The Game AGAIN hurts really bad. Bama and Clemson stumbling against their rivals AGAIN only reminds Kwon that we haven't had a balanced rivalry since the great Al Gore invented the Internet.
TMZ gets a lot of views so you could argue it's newsworthy. Some people might want newsworthy to mean something that is worthy of the being discussed in the public domain. Reporters tend to go for what will be heavily discussed not what should be heavily discussed. I don't know you so this isn't a comment towards you in anyway, I just feel like the media trends to more sensational.
I hope good. He seems to be one of the better coaches on the team. Maybe best suited as a positional coach because of his playing experience and he also may just love working with the D-lineman, but he probably woudl be a great D-coordinator. He's a helluva recuriter too.
The only argument here is whether Hackenberg as a senior will be better than Braxton as a Senior. Right now, Hackenberg is still very raw and just performed well at home in a night game. How will Hackenberg do on the road in a hostile environment?
I think Hackenberg has a ton of potential. I'll admit, I think he will probably be the best QB in the BIG10 at some point. But, don't overreact and crown him as the best now. I'd take at least 3 QBs over him at this point, maybe more (Braxton, Kenny, Taylor Martinez).
Also, despite you being a troll, I think it's worth pointing out that Herman is a helluva QB coach.
Either way, I compliment you on your timely trolling and success.
