Urban Meyer actually approved the thought that went behind his message. Also, the new focus of Real Life Wednesdays has been on broader issues that affect society rather than merely landing a job after football. Ohio State football is on the cutting edge when it comes to this and obviously the message resonates with recruits and their parents.
Gilbert should name LeBron GM. The first player-GM in the history of the league.
USC lost Corral their QB commit. Maybe the lb from Gorman rethinks his commitment there? I would love to see USC's class fall apart.
Yet Gus Malzahn is free to be the water boy at Ohio State tomorrow if he so pleases. These transfer restrictions need to be done with. A school should have zero say on any athletes future. An athlete should be able to transfer anywhere he wants and play immediately.
I guess Mike Brown would be a good choice if Gene wanted to bury the bball program for good.
Is this a joke? I seriously thought Gene had a big gun already in agreement (Billy Donovan or Brad Stevens) so that's why he fired Matta so late. I'd rather have Matta or even Jent over this guy. This guy would be regressing back to the Eldon Miller days.
Cavs can't go toe to toe trading 3's with the Warriors. Cavs need to retool in the offseason. Getting a legit big center and playing more iso and pick and roll to slow the Warriors down would be the best hope. Or, they can try to sign a Blake Griffin or Paul George to try to match because the Warriors have 4 legit all stars and the Cavs big 3 simply can't beat that as is now.
Blue gonna have to change his nickname to Red
Which B1G program has the most final 4 appearances? Most people are surprised at the answer. OSU bball is an excellent program with the right coach.
Urban on the horn with BIlly D to reunite.
Need another elite player to come join the team, as GS is way too stacked for the Cavs. Blake Griffin is the big fish out there, but the Cavs are bogged down by the big contracts they gave to guys like JR Smith.
Lebron could get the 100k retweets for him easily. Too bad he's off twitter until the finals are over.
Urban has it far tougher to win a title. JT only had to win his bowl game, if OSU was selected for the BCS title game. Urban has to win the B1G title game and 2 more playoff games.
Cavs win because of Mike Brown.
Is Zeke allowed to talk to him about OSU?
A lot of the best DL are from the south so its always tough to get them to leave the area. However, he has landed elite players like Chase Young, Nick Bosa, and Taron Vincent. With continued success of these players at the college and pro level LJ's ability to extract those elite DL out of the south will improve.
Great article. I don't think the Bucks would have lost a game from '02-'05 had Dru & Mo played together.
Would be interesting to see a study how the Browns would have fared since '99 if they simply drafted the best available OSU player each round.
Hope all this talent translates to playoff wins. The 31-0 loss was the worst loss by far I have seen in my lifetime.
I'm at the point I don't stress if a guy doesn't pick OSU as Urban will find another guy just as good or better.
You don't need "analytics" to know that was a shitty pick.
Figured only moronic franchises such as the Lions or Browns would take Peppers in the first round. Sure enough I was proven correct. Blew taking Hooker at the 12th pick. Been a Browns fan since '83. Am about done with them. Besides, they were not really the Browns since they came back in '99.
Darnay Holmes chose...wrong.
New bears qb
You reasoning is what is used by the in state programs to try to retain all of all of the out of state kids that come to OSU to play football. Can't have it both ways.
