Tyler Gerald was the #25 player in (FL). He would of been the #8 in (OH)
I'm a Browns fan - Knowing the Browns, this guy is definitely a Browns scout
BD - Unless you are #1 in recruiting every year, you can always improve. That's how Urban Meyer & co. look at it, that's how i look at it.
MTROTB - Yeah, I'm not going to read every single post every every single article I read. Sorry
I've always been a HUGE fan of Danny Clark. Not only will he be a great representative from Ohio State, but he has great size, a very good recruiter, and is a state championship winning QB. He is obviously doing something right with his huge ratings bump he just received.
Buckeye - I don't want to continue to defend Harbaugh because I'm a Buckeye through and through, and at this point I just feel dirty, but....Is it really an unfair advantage of any other coach in the country could do the same thing? I personally think it won't work out for Harbaugh, therefore it doesn't bother me personally. Either he is a) hiring unqualified people, or b) he fires the parents once the kids leave and is left with that stigma which would hurt recruiting.
To me it isn't unethical, this isn't a moral. Who is being hurt by this? Ohio State isn't, we aren't. Non issue.
Buckeye - It's easy to ignore Stanford was 1-11 the year before he got there, and within four years he had them at 12-1. That is one of the finest coaching jobs I've ever witnessed.
Buckeye - Harbaugh was the head coach. I'm going to give him the credit. I credit him also for recognizing talent and putting a hell of a staff together at Stanford. Head coach's get all of the blame, why not get all of the credit? Also he went to three straight NFC championship games, and look where SF is now without him...that can't be understated.
TN - Harbaugh did make Jake Ruddock and Colin Kaepernick look like big time QB's.
Squirrel - I am a business major at Ohio State. I understand there are great people and sharks in the business world. I'm just saying I don't care about the unwritten code of ethics in business when it comes to humanity and the morals every human should have. Morals such as rape is wrong, assault is wrong, murder is wrong, racism is wrong, etc. Way, way, way, way, way, way down the list is giving an athletes family member a job.
Buckeye - I don't personally consider Shaw elite. Reason being, Jim Harbaugh built Stanford from nothing, David Shaw is building off of the foundation that Harbaugh created. Stanford having this lasting power also only increases my opinion that Harbaugh is an elite college football coach. I remember when Urban Meyer signed his contract at Ohio State people said "Yeah he was elite at Florida, but he hasn't done anything at Ohio State yet). I feel like way to many of us are falling into that same trap. Harbaugh is an elite coach regardless of how long he has been a Michigan, or regardless if San Francisco ran him out of town (after reaching three NFC championships)
BuckeyeJohn - I'm sorry but I had to stop reading when you implied college football is not a business.
I would say that is extremely selfish, and that action is immoral. I'm not going to judge because I have done it before.
Squirrel - The business world IS THE LAST PLACE IN THE WORLD that I'm going to allow to tell me about morals. Are you kidding me right now? Did Harbaugh assault another human being, did he steal from another human being, is he a good husband and a father. Ok, then we can get over this.
Defiance - Elite is relative term. The way I determine elite is - Is this coach a top 5 coach in CFB? If you give Harbaugh an equal roster, and a week to prepare, there is only maybe two coach's (Meyer, Saban) I don't think he would beat. You also have to prove yourself in the W/L column (He made to to three straight NFC championship games, and won a BCS bowl game at Stanford)
If it works for Harbaugh, I have no issue with it. It's coming out of Michigan's bank account, and isn't immoral. So far this tactic has worked in New Jersey, it remains to be seen...
Love Harbaugh or hate him, (I personally love the guy) he is an elite coach, and will get you to the NFL. He is great for the B1G, and great for the rivalry.
The people that get upset about these posts, are the same people that are upset about Deadpool being rated R. #GettheFUCKoverit
Talk about an agenda against Cam Newton.
Yes, you are entitled to your own opinion. That isn't going to stop us from voicing our opinion that you are blowing this way out of proportion. Let me guess, Cam Newton shouldn't be giving game balls to kids either?
Tressl = For those that also care, a 293.24 this past recruiting class would of put Ohio State at #3. Which is insane because with an 18 member class they would of been right up there with 24-25 member classes. The other thing I thought it, Ohio State will most likely have to have a class of 21 or more to compete for the #1 spot as Alabama had the #1 class at 301 last year.
Rollin - Nothing has been said yet, but I'm convinced either Dre'Mont Jones / Jashon Cornell or both will end up at DT at some point in their careers. In my opinion, two DT's were a need, 3 DT's is a luxury.
Evanston - Most analysts predicted that Ohio State would take 2-3 DT's in this class. So at most, there could be one more DT added, but with spots limited, it isn't a need at this point.
Ohio State now has the #4 and #14 ranked DT's in the 2017 class (247Sports composite). Not bad for a defensive line coach who can't recruit.
