If they are going to go that route, they better be sure they have him secured. I feel like if I were a recruit, that kind of move would be such a turn off.
There isn't an opening on the staff at this point, which is going to make it difficult to hire him.
He's like the Hannibal Smith of College Football. Now I just need someone to photoshop Urban with a cigar saying "I love it when a plan comes together"
Upset of the Century!
From what I've heard, after Applewhite's affair with a student that got him fired from UT, he won't ever get rehired there.
Would be really cool, but I'll believe it when I see it. Would be an amazing haul though.
Yea I'm sorry to seem rude, because you are entitled to your opinion, but your opinion is stupid. How are kids going to learn from their mistakes if their mistakes carry the death penalty each time they make a hard mistake?
105th rated schedule, with your best win being against Northwestern? Get out of here with that. If they lost by 35 to Bama I would call that a good day for them.
A Bota Bag is a wineskin, which is how my Dad snuck booze into Ohio State games when he was a student in the late 80s/early 90s. I stuck double flasks in my cowboy boots however to sneak mine in. Also the vest I would wear for cold games was great for sneaking in about 6 beers.
"Hey you're a dumb teenager who made a dumb mistake. You're now banned from ever playing this sport again. Sorry if you're a kid from a bad situation or a bad neighborhood who could use a coach/older mentor figures to actually help you become a more well rounded citizen and help you from falling in with a bad crowd. You made a single mistake, and as you know, no one deserves a second chance."
C'mon man, the last thing a kid who makes a dumb mistake needs is to be kicked out and sent into exile. You keep him in, punish him and help him learn from his mistakes, because that is how people grow and become better. If coaches, teachers, and mentors (along with parents) are going to kick a kid to the curb the first time he makes a dumb, hotheaded mistake, and try to make him go through learning how to grow up and become an adult alone, the kid is going to go find worse mentors (bad people) to learn from and follow.
Make sure he has a hotdog with some stadium mustard. Also, teach him how to sneak in Bota Bag's under his clothes, its a handy dandy trick.
Counterpoint: why not just do that with Curtis Samuel? Why risk injury to a guy who when he is feeling it, is all over the field and making it impossible for people to pass on us, when we have a guy on the team who has and can do exactly what you're talking about.
I don't know that adding another guy to the mix, no matter how athletically gifted, will help things when the biggest component to getting the skill position players comfortable in a game setting is to actually play them in a game setting. That said, its fun to think about.
Dude just go to fucking class. You're paying an assload of money to go to college for a reason. I was a marketing major in Fisher as well (Graduated Spring of 14) and being a marketing major is cake. I dicked around almost all of college, did well in my major classes, and have a pretty great gig in Technology Sales now. If you put forth any sort of real effort and have any sort of people skills, you should sail through with no troubles.
"Prescott continues to play at a very high level. He protects the ball, plays with poise and has stepped up in crunch time. His ability to escape and extend plays is phenomenal, but I've been more impressed with his accuracy from the pocket."
You call that harsh? Seems like a really glowing review to me.
Preferred the black uniforms, but these pics don't look as bad as the quick peek we got in the past. Hopefully they look great in action.
I came into town for the weekend for the game, and this is what it felt like to me. I'd start cheering trying to get up and Northwestern would complete a 15 yard pass and get another first down. Not a ton to cheer for on Saturday honestly.
How about we cut this shit out until the season actually ends? I'm disappointed in the offensive performance just like everyone else is, but can we at least let the season finish before we start actively naming replacements for these guys?
5 Years ago i would have said no way, but with Alabama doing it with Lane Kiffin and now apparently Steve Sarkisian and us doing it with Greg Schiano, as well as Will Muschamp and Gene Chizik elsewhere around the country, I wouldn't rule out something like that happening. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I don't know that the offense is playing well enough for a program to look at us and say "I need either Beck or Warriner at the helm right now!" like i am sure plenty of Buckeye fans are hoping.
Seems weird that this coach is taking shots at an 18 year old about not being a good fit for their team if it was such a mutual decision. Guy sounds an awful lot like fans of recruiting who say "we didn't want him here anyways."
17 touchdowns through 4 games. If he were to keep that pace (he probably won't) over 15 games (if we play for a title), he would end the season with 64 touchdowns. That wouldn't suck.
"Let's hope they don't look like this" you mean you hope a Big Ten Offensive Lineman won't hold our defensive linemen or that it will get called by the Refs? Yea, and Jabrill Peppers isn't overrated.
Gotcha, I have kind of stopped following recruiting lately other than the occasional update, and from the way that sentence was worded, I couldn't really tell which he meant. Thanks!
Kid is a true freshman playing with a bunch of skill position players who are freshmen and sophomores outside of OJ Howard. Even if it isn't this year, that offense is going to be nasty as they develop more together.
