I agree 100%. Stephen Collier will be 3rd string. I think Braxton ends up at another position. Just go back to his draft grade after his junior year. If it would've been good, he would be in the NFL right now. Nick Marshall (hate to use him as an example) made the right move and switched to DB for the draft.
I really do NOT want to see Burrow flip. I think he's going to be an absolute stud. Urban needs to ease his nerves.
Next year's 2-deep isn't negative talk. It's fun to look at who's coming back and who could be stepping up. I agree with the other nonsense tho.
If anyone should've been left out, it should've been FSU.
The scenario that makes the most sense is:
1) Braxton either transfers to Houston with Herman or changes positions
2) Barrett and Jones battle it out for starting QB with Collier and Burrow as back-ups
JT Barrett addressed the pic on Twitter yesterday when somebody called him out. He said he was praying and thanking God. I'm at work so I can't embed the tweet.
I don't know if Braxton can take the beating at h-back. He gets hurt pretty easily as it is.
Please tell me there's a rebuttal video coming after we beat Bama.
Please don't start the travel stipend debate again.
Harbough never won a Rose Bowl while at Stanford. It's also been reported that he still has desires and goals for the NFL. Making him the highest paid coach in college football makes no sense.
Athletes aren't getting paid until a judge forces universities to.
I agree... But everyone needs to get paid. Urban is the face of the program and all of the responsibility falls directly on him. Coordinators need to be $1M+ and Urban needs to be at $7M.
A lot of smoke out there about this. New report saying he's looking into Oregon and LSU. People can deny stuff all day, but I honestly believe he's looked into it. Not saying he is going to transfer, but I think he's looking at his options.
I'm neutral on the Tebow situation right now. Would be great for leadership and recruiting, but I'm not sold on him being able to develop QBs. I'd like to look at some other options. Maybe have him on the list but later down the road.
OSU needs to pay up and keep Herman in Columbus until a prime power 5 school comes calling. I was critical of Herman earlier in the season but it seems he's opening up the playbook now and has developed the QBs really well.
I agree with doubling his salary. There's a reason why Kirby Smart has been at Bama for so long. He makes a ton of money and doesn't have all the stress of being a head coach. Also, my dad works part-time for Hershey. I might be able to get some Reese Cups to help the cause.
Birm... Have you been able to find out what level of Penniston has in OSU or was he waiting to see who Wiscy hired? Which with Paul Chryst I can't see kids having a ton of confidence considering his record at Pitt.
Also, any news with Jordan Whitehead now that Chryst left Pitt?
I don't know how anyone can reply yes to this poll question. The B1G is making terrible hires and doesn't pay assistants like other conferences do. Look at Wiscy. They just lost Anderson and hired Paul Chryst. Why not throw a blank check at Kirby Smart from Bama?
If people are going to make these for recruits, let's at least spell check. I'm not sure what deilver means.
We need to pay our assistants a little more after this year. I know they already make a ton of money, but they have done a phenomenal job considering all of the adversity this team has faced. Let's pay these guys that way we don't have to worry about them leaving for jobs like Tulsa, Kansas, and Houston. If it were a big time job, I'd understand them leaving but we don't need to lose assistants to small programs.
He's not coming to OSU.
Urban wasn't willing to whiff on both guys, so he took Weber. If Harris wanted in, he should've committed a while back and help recruit other players. Honestly, I hope he ends up at UK.
I'm a teacher... I don't make a lot of money. I do put money in a savings and retirement acct. It's all about budgeting and priorities.
