Non-story. B1G coaches do the same thing. I teach/coach at a school with junior players with B1G offers, and coaches came by school last week and met with them in person. EVERY coach does it, but it's basically acceptable for it to happen. The NCAA is a joke.
You guys are wrong talking about GA's. The GA last year who worked with the QB's directly coached Braxton on the sidelines during games. With Herman up in the box, Brax had to talk to the GA after every drive. Yes, GA's do the grunt work for the coaches, but most (if not all) have a substantial amount of football knowledge. The assistant coaches cannot coach every individual during the week, so you'll often see the GA, or intern coach the players on a 1-on-1 basis.
Imagine Meyer with the 2005 offense. The NFL talent on that side of the ball is alarming.
QB: Troy Smith (think about how he ended the year. One of the best QB's in the nation, and probably the scariest to game plan against). Played in NFL
RB: Antonio Pittman-drafted by the Saints in I believe the 3rd or 4th round?
WR: Ginn (NFL), Santonio Holmes (NFL), Gonzalez (NFL), Roy Hall
OL: Mangold, (NFL) Sims (NFL), Kirk Barton
7 of our starters either played in the NFL, and 4 of them are still starting in the NFL. Urban's system would have fit this personnel perfectly.
