He would be a good choice.  He enjoyed some success at Rutgers (not exactly a powerhouse) and won a few bowl games there. Obviously he struggled in the NFL but I seem to remember another coach who struggled as a head coach there and came back to college and has won a few national championships recently.

If he ever plays for the Buckeyes again it will largely be up to him.  He obviously needs to go through rehab and get himself straightened out.  Once he gets passed that point, if he want to plays for the Buckeyes, I am sure Urban and Ohio State can exert considerable influence on the Big 10 to reconsider his ineligibility.  I seem to remember reading that there may be an appeal option.  I think the rule needs to be modified as it's original intent was probably to go after PED's.  As far as I know, ecstasy is not.  I think after they test positive for a second time, consider the kid ineligible but allow them an avenue to get reinstated on a case by case basis.

It sounds like the mother has some legitimate concerns regarding MSU.  It sound as if the MSU coaches screwed up when she addressed her concerns to them.  As a parent, it is her responsibility to try and guide her son on what she believes to be the right path regardless of what a lot of people who do not know the entire situation think.  She and the father know what is best for their son not anyone else.  She also knows that if he is determined to go to MSU that he will he will just go there without her blessing.  Will he hold some resentment toward her?  Sure. He is a 17 year old.  Hopefully her reasoning for doing this will cause him to prove her wrong by putting his nose to the grindstone, get his degree and maybe become an NFL caliber player.  If that occurrs, than she will have done her job and been a good parent to her son

Nice post AG.  Just became familiar with the 11W site (Thanks to the Urban Meyer story) and find it a great and informative site for all things Buckeye.  There is no doubt Urban will land some of these kids which will greatly help the present recruiting class.  Go Bucks!
