I would like to see his 40 time, shuttle, etc versus Zeke's. One thing I noticed in the video was his vision and ability to make quick and seemingly easy lateral moves. Players would have an angle on him and soon were grabbing air. Get him in some open space and watch out. It will be interesting to see if he has the top line speed to run away from DB's once he breaks the line. I am glad he is playing for us. I will be the first to put him on the Heisman watch :)

SEC knows what a guy is worth and pays accordingly....

...BTW Michigan now pays their assistants better than us.

I think one reason the SEC pays their coaches more is they would like them to stay more then just a couple of seasons. Kirby Smart stayed at Alabama for something like 7 years before leaving to coach at Georgia. He was paid well and stayed until the perfect job for him became available. Ohio State and maybe now less so at _ichigan, based on their current pay rates, bring in coaches knowing they are likely to leave in a few years for better paying or head coaching positions. If Urban goes through a period of mediocre performances, as a result of poor coaching, I would bet Ohio State will start paying a little more to their coordinators to keep the good ones a little longer. Also, I agree Warriner should have never left the O Line.

I know a guy, who is related to another guy that sent me a text saying Lattimore is definitely going to make a decision...

Man I like this kid. In watching his interview you could tell he thought about his answers and really wasn't giving the standard script. For what it is worth, I believe he is coming to The Ohio State University. What I heard was leaving the state didn't bother him, but also how he said he would like to win a national championship and he liked the guys in the room. Something else that I noticed, that seemed to impress him, was Coach Johnson's ability to get the most out of his guys without swearing. 

So mark up the BOOM!

While coaching in the NFL looks great on a resume. Does Coach Day have the chops on what it takes to effectively coach that position? Have his QB's excelled or improved at their positions during his tenure? Was the lack of success attributed to the system that Kelly was running or his inability to effectively communicate what needed to be done? I guess if Kelly didn't think Day was good enough or qualified he would have not hired him in San Francisco. Either way, I think it is a better solution than what we have had and hopefully provides the right answers to what we need.

I think this is a great choice. First, you have a proven NFL coach. He coached LB's and was a DC for a few teams. Obviously, a few teams liked his philosophy and style to make him their coordinator, which is a major accomplishment in the NFL. When he wasn't the top defensive player caller he coached linebackers. I am sure there are a few Hall of Famers that he has crossed paths with in his time that were coached by him. In the NFL you are given players and told to make your system work or else. A coach may not be given the best players but you hope somehow there is a diamond in the rough. Now at Ohio State he is given the opportunities to coach the best players in the country, along with the best assistant coaches and head coach. He will exceed all expectations guaranteed. As for recruiting, he has seen the program work for the last year so that should be easy to pickup. Remember, kids want to play here and Ohio kids really want to play here. 

Now let's get some offensive help and we are golden.

I would look for an experienced linebackers coach with ties to Ohio, which was part of the area Fickell recruited. Its possible that Johnson or Coombs will be promoted to Co-DC, as a little bump for sticking around. However, after Schiano leaves Urban will find another bonified DC to take over. 

Like in recruiting, Urban has no problem getting coaches to want to come to OSU. He will get to pick the best of the best. What no one is really discussing to much is Ed Warriner leaving for Western Kentucky and that impact.
