Harbaugh's ploy is quite obvious, I think. He understands that perception often is worth more than reality in college football. He is pulling out all the stops to generate the appearance that TTUN is "back", and ethically-upstanding behavior be damned. His hope is that enough athletic kids will be fooled by the perception of TTUN's "return to glory" to actually want to be a part of that corrupt cesspool. His ploy is that he will attract enough talent to actually make his system work before the general public awakes to reality and the smoke screen of "greatness" his antics, ploys, lack of loyalty to his recruits / players, corrupt job-giving and unwarranted media love have created is dispelled.

The best way to smash his plan, of course, is to expose him for the whiny, self-entitled weakling he is. I am sure Coach Meyer will have this in mind when preparing for the Game.

From what I have read and seen, DPJ is an impresive kid. He is a monstrous athlete of course, but I think he is equally intelligent. For what it's worth, I do not think he sees his recruitment in purely superficial terms. I think he is researching his options and will weigh them carefully. While I agree he seems to be a long shot for us, I do think he will fairly consider what Ohio State has to offer, which is quite a lot. I suppose we will see.

Agreed. I always wondered why beating Notre Dame constitutes a renaissance.

When I look at Ohio State's standing in pass defense coupled with RU's 111th pass offense, well, the Scarlet Knights had better hope they can avoid 3rd and long situations ...

Comment 27 Sep 2016

I was wondering why TTUN appears on so many lists. This is not a criticism by any means, I was just wondering what the advantages would be (maybe my hate blinds me to the obvious)? It just seems to me that the place is nasty, the big brass has been known to interfere with the coaches, the fanbase maintains very unreasonable expectations which any coach would be hard-pressed to satisfy, and the recruiting seems hard too. The closest talent-rich state would be Ohio, where one would have to go head-to-head with Coach Meyer (good luck with that).

Top ten is hard to say, but I think my top five would be: 1) Ohio State, 2) Texas, 3) USC, 4) Florida State and 5) Alabama. Ultimately, nothing beats Ohio State in my eyes (largest fanbase, insane tradition of excellence, state-of-the-art facilities, great city, very good recruiting, etc.).

And now all he has ever known at Tennessee is failure. Begining to see a bit of a pattern in young Lewan's life ...

He would have to consider it at least. Top recruiting classes guaranteed, direct access to Texas, brand name program with lots of fame and money. Not saying he jumps ship for the Tigers, but it would have to be awfully tempting.
