Have you ever worked in Sales? I doubt it, because I have and I can tell you that the vast majority of deals I close are because I have a great professional relationship with the client and they trust me. I don't always have the best price or even best solution to offer them, but I still get the business. Recruiting is the EXACT same way. Have to really take time to get to know these kids and make them feel important to the future of your program. The moment you take someone for granted is the moment you lose out on a prospect.

Urban has said in the past that if the offense isn't playing well during the week's game prep, he will NOT open the playbook on gameday. He only calls plays that he is confident can be executed during that specific time/game. To his credit, we have had some ugly performances, but have always had a chance to win the game, even with very conservative/predictable playcalling.

At this point, opposing teams have seen most of his playbook and have a general idea of what he's going to call, so there's not really much to "hold back" even if Urban wanted to.

Your trip is not terribly timed. You're taking a fantastic journey with your wife that you'll remember for the rest of your life. Do not plan your trip around watching Buckeye games...the team isn't going anywhere. Keep track of game updates and watch the full games when you get home. Trust me, you'll be fine and you (AND your wife) will be much happier.

Jackson sounds like he might be a keeper.....which means the Browns management will fire him after 1 season.

Comment 30 Aug 2016

Agreed, unless there is a very compelling reason to do otherwise (i.e. OSU has a much better program for what you want to pursue, job prospect are much better, etc.)

This is a business decision for you. First look at what career field you want to pursue, and look at the amount of money you expect to be making out of college. If you end up taking 50k plus in student loans and you make 50k/yr, it's going to take forever to pay those back. Do you want to raise a family? See where I'm going with this? I realize you're young and this is hard to take in but please consider what kind of situation you want to have after college and how much you expect to be making. I have multiple friends saddled with 100k plus in student loans for useless degrees and they work at Starbucks. Don't let that be you.

Ones I have seen my friends attempt: Mary Kay, Avon, Nerium, Quixtar, Cutco. I have yet to see anyone make enough to quit their day job, but have sure seen a lot of them spend hundreds (if not thousands) of their own money and many hours of their time trying to make it work. I've also seen this stuff break up families and destroy friendships. Just not worth it imo.

Just Gamecast it on your smartphone. Trying to dodge it is an exercise in futility. Usually by Sunday night/Monday morning someone will have uploaded a High Def replay of the game on Youtube.

Alcohol abuse is ten times worse...and more dangerous. Smoking pot clears the mind, helps you relax, and de-stress. I have no problem with anyone using it so long as they're not in a situation where other people are depending on them to do something.

Thanks for putting together! I doubt this OSU class breaks the total points record since it will be smaller, but the average rating per recruit (currently 95.15 according to 24/7 composite) is the highest ever on record (second highest is Alabama 2012 @ 93.09).
