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.
Dude clearly has a problem so yea i feel bad for him. Browns would be stupid to keep him on the team at this point though.
"LSU is one of a number of schools vying for his services, but Florida State and Ole Miss remain the main threats to land the country's second-rated running back."
Main threats to Ohio State or main threats in general? Are we trending away from Cam Akers?
Probably the right move for him. Hurts is their guy going forward, kid is a baller in the making.
Good, move them down, make them angry and feel disrespected. Just going to give Urbz and Co. more fuel to motivate them with. The polls mean nothing right now.
I've been under the impression that if a guy like Trey Smith wants to be in, you have to say yes. Same with if say Marvin Wilson and Jay Tufele want to be in, you can't turn down guys that talented. You just have to deal with the scholarship issue later.
I'd say every kid is different, but Oklahoma and OSU are supposedly Okudah's top 2, so seeing us win over them in their house, especially with the way the secondary played, can only be a good thing.
However, I agree, in general 1 game is not going to usually be the determining factor, but in this case, this one game is probably a good thing.
Well its played at the Cotton Bowl during the State Fair of Texas, which is easily double the size of the Ohio State Fair. Was down there for the fair during the game last year and it was absolutely nuts. I wouldn't trade the back and forth of the Game, but the Red River Shootout is pretty fantastic.
All Ivy League Schools, though that is mostly self inflicted.
OU-Texas is a neutral site game in Dallas every year, so it's not like Texas descends on Norman every couple of years.
To be fair to the kid, college is a big transition, and if grade issues are going to happen, it is usually early in their career.
No losses are acceptable, we aren't Michigan. I don't need losses to make me appreciate the wins.
Either from my own couch in Dallas or from The McKinney Avenue Tavern, like 1/2 of a mile down the street from me.
Turkey Ribs? Yuck. Next time I'm in CBUS though (October) I'll give it a go.
I'll be in Columbus for the Northwestern game, may attend an SMU game for kicks, and am tentatively attending the Red River Shootout this year. There was talk of going up to Norman for the Oklahoma-OSU game but that didn't work out logistically, I also may get tickets from work to the Texas Tech-Baylor or the Texas A&M-Arkansas games in Arlington, but neither of those are confirmed yet. So final count is anywhere from 1-5 games this year, only one for the Buckeyes.
It could be the best in Cleveland, but I really don't know what the rosters of St. Eds or St. Iggy's look like this year.
God damn. When Vrabel left, I thought there was no way we could get an upgrade over him. and then we hired LJ SR. That speech actually gave me chills.
I agree with you on all the rest as I said above. I think it's way to soon to crown him the heir apparent, but if he were to come here I am not worried about UT snapping him up. We are one of those programs that we don't lose coaches to another program.
Herman was actually a Grad Assistant at Texas in 1999.
