Comment 15 May 2016

really

that ND comment is a stretch

you say definitively it is "over signing" when it is not, because that is not possible.  On the exact day the almighty ncaa dictates you must have a maximum 85 scholly players on roster, the Buckeyes have 85 players. 

What we saw in the sec repeatedly was players who the year before saw the field in game situations, and where no reported injury in real time news reporting occurred, suddenly be gone from the program at the last hour for mysterious reasons. 

Yes, there is a distinction with a difference. I'm willing to bet Coach Meyer would explain his methodology for roster management at his elite program, and it would be exactly this -- "We recruit an individual we and the recruit feels fit our program and our needs. The deal we make is the recruit has potential, and both of us work together to develop that potential. When that doesn't happen by year two (barring injury), we talk about our futures together."

I believe Coach Meyer sure the heck doesn't turn around one day and look to jettison somebody when he needs a spot for a 'shiny new 5* recruit'.
