I thought the D.C. based Friendship Academy was set to close a last year. Burrow is going to be the real deal.
If they fail on all of their premiere choices, why not look in state for a diamond in the rough. That's what we did with Tressel. Find someone with a strong winning record, has built up a great program and lead an intensive interview process to gain a feel to see if he can handle the pressure at the next level. They have to have some good coaches up there at lower level programs who learned their football in Ohio. Another example for our home state diamonds in the rough would be Larry Kehres who used to coach at Mount Union. This would be more of a stretch than Tressel, but I think he would do fine at any level.

Let's re-visit your last sentence after his freshman year in college. If you're right about Harris, that would be one of the best freshman RB seasons since Herschal Walker.
M Man, I understand your defense of your team and all, but sometimes you just have to face the music and say, "it's not good enough; I will not defend all of these problems and call on my home program to do better." I know I had to do it in the Cooper years, it was awful; but I had no defense. I worked with a TTUN fan and he owned me for 11 years and there wasn't a damn thing I could do about it. I took my lumps, admitted OSU's problems, and hoped for a better day. It eventually came in the form of a vest and continues today.
Personally, I'm pulling for a Florida win because Urban will get the credit...
Looks like they're ready for Halloween.
Michigan has a slim chance, but the key will be protecting Devin. If the Utes can pressure him, the game will be over. If he gets in a groove with Funchess, they have a chance to pull it off. Don't see it happening though.
Hope he heals up. He will have the opportunity to grow and be better with this adversity.
I have to find a way to fail all the time at my job and still keep it. That guy is a genius...
Agreed, it is much easier to adjust in 7 days than it is during the game. My high school always scripted our first 10 plays to see how the D was defending our base plays, then adjust the plan (if necessary) from that point on.
Regarding football smarts and Tom Herman. I wonder how he would do against the greatest coach in OSU history who constantly said that he wasn't the smartest guy around but he would never, ever be outworked.
2 things I really think Meyer is too enamored with. Assistant coaches who can recruit and team speed. Ironically, we have coaches who can get recruits in with "speed", but their coaching ability severely limits said players. Then as we saw with Von Bell last year, these coaches somehow mess up talent evaluation. What good does a 4.3 guy do if he is constantly out of position, or he is limited by bad play calling. Lose the flash and hype and get back to fundamental football. One example tackling; I saw at least 15 "hits" last Saturday without wrapping. This really gets to me because I watch my 1st grade son wrap all the time, anybody can do it. That's bad coaching.
