I wonder if his time playing under Belichik in New England prepared him for when he inevitably gets his shot at a head coaching gig.  Between him and working under Meyer I'd say he has had the opportunity to learn from the best at both levels.

I'll be honest and say that for some reason his music doesn't really do much for me.  I grew up listening to country music, and still do to an extent, but can't stand a lot of the garbage labeled as country music.  When I heard about Sturgill maybe I got my hopes up to high, but for some reason he doesn't live up to the hype for me.  I'm glad he's getting more and more publicity though as maybe it will encourage producers to try and go this direction more than the Luke Bryan way.

So any of the newer Droid devices have the headphone jack? I was in store ready to upgrade and noticed the ones on display didn't have the port and asked what the deal was. The guy in the store got pretty condescending about how I was living in the past, so I got pissed and left. Also, Verizon's new way of selling you the phone and having you make monthly payments kind of pissed me off too.

I wonder how our kickoff efficiency would look if we just kicked the ball deep into the endzone every time.  I know the coaches claim kicking it to the side is better, but I remain skeptical.

Ohio Senator Cliff Hite was the Findlay HS coach at the time and it was his son that played QB over Ben.  I think Ben played mainly TE because the offensive style that Findlay ran was power run out of the I form or wishbone.  The year he played QB they switched to more of a spread or singleback offense.  I think over the years Cliff has taken a lot of crap for playing his son, but hindsight is 20/20.  If he hadn't opened up the playbook during Ben's senior year he might've ended up playing basketball in college instead.

I think Urban placed a premium on recruiting over coaching and that's going to change.

I agree.  I also think we recruited way too many athletes and expected them to turn into WRs immediately.  I'm not sure if we need to make a change at WR coach, but until something happens with that unit it's going to be hard to find a successful offensive approach no matter who is calling the plays or taking the snaps.

I'm close with someone who is a leader for an alumni club. The reasons that they're complaining are plentiful.  You have the overall dissatisfaction with things that the university is doing, Campus Partners, privatizing parking, etc.  The alumni groups are also being told what they can and cannot do in regards to usage of the words Ohio State, Buckeyes, Scarlet and Gray, and the letter O.  I think anything they want to do has to be approved by someone.  While I get the whole protecting the brand thing I think that the university is getting too big for it's own good.  They feel like they're not missing out by alienating a bunch of alumni.  We'll see how it plays in the long run.

I don't think they were ever not allowed. Pryor's ban was given because he didn't stay and accept the NCAA punishment that he would've received at the beginning of the 2011 season.

Now you're just hurting my feelings...

Thanks. That was my intent.  Although a good weekly column on Nascar would give you the opportunity to present your opinion based on observations and supporting facts, and then we could all disagree with it and downvote your post.  That hasn't happened recently has it?
