What's the difference between this situation and OSU WBB Coach Kevin McGuff hiring Mark Mitchell in order to get Kelsey and Chelsea? In the "win now" world of college athletics hiring parents and HS coaches of prospective recruits has become common practice.
This is just not a very good team, they don't play any defense, they can't rebound, the shot selection is horrible, and Alston looks like she'd rather be anywhere than on the floor. I know Coach McGuff makes a splash with recruiting but it takes more than just having good players and rolling the ball out. They should have beaten NU by double-digits, they need a lot of work
He'll go somewhere else too. I don't know why tOSU seems to have such a difficult time recruiting DT's? They recruit every other position well, even kickers, For the past 4 or 5 years we always seem to miss out on the top DT's, hell even Adolphus Washington was recruited as a DE and moved inside. It's a mystery for sure.
He was the OC candidate that most people wanted when UFM was initially hired, he hired Tom Herman who is a member of Mensa, Studrawa stayed at LSU and rest as they say is history!!
Jeff Long is putting his ducks in row at Hog Heaven so he can take the AD job at TTUN when they offer it to him!
Correction: Marshawn Lattimore, I was sneaking on the site at work, LOL. TY for the catch.
Don't forget about Marshon Lynch who's finally healthy!!
There's no market for a middle-of-the-road College HC that never won anything even though he was able to recruit a ton of talent. The whole Johnny Manziel saga has shown every NFL GM that Sumlin is completely incapable of coaching on the professional level.
This just in: Kelsey Mitchell is amazing!! LOL!! On a serious note, we need to see more of Makayla Waterman she was a force in the 2nd half against the UMD Posts.
There's absolutely nothing down this road! Gotta be a better way to spend NYE!
He won't get another NFL shot, he's proven he's just another in a long line of hotshot CFB Coaches who flame-out in the No Fun League. He'll get a CFB job relatively quickly though. Nice thought though, having him as the Buckeyes OC.
Or Chuck Heater!!
If he's that excited then he needs to take his ass to Rutgers and good riddance!!
Why is there always some lame attempt at equivocation? Neither Alabama nor their schedule had anything to do with is not making the CFP. Regardless of their schedule Alabama won the SEC Championship, did tOSU win the B1G? We had every chance to be in the CFP, but we shit the bed against Sparty. That's on us, not anyone else. Deal with and move on.
You're welcome to him!! The guy has never coordinated a defense ranked higher than 25th in the NFL, his continued employment is the ultimate tribute to nepotism.
He's not upset about not getting the job, he is perturbed that he didn't at least get a call gauging his interest in the position. Gene Smith only made one phone call and it was the right one to make.
Ain't that the Damn Truth!!
I believe he's called Jeremy Pruitt, but tOSU isn't in the SEC and the B1G has no million dollar Coordinators and Gene Smith has repeatedly stated he's not getting into that "arms race" so scratch Pruitt, it's nothing other than economics with him.
Mel's not leaving Bama to come to tOSU!! He's still bitter about not getting a phone call from Gene Smith when the job came open after Tressel was fired/resigned.
Not giving Zeke the ball against Sparty isn't why we lost. The inability to throw the ball against their terrible DB's was the reason we lost. But it doesn't matter now anyway!!
Sparty, Bama, Clemson, or OU, as well but alas it's not to be. We have be satisfied with beating the breaks off of ND!!

Didn't forget Nick Bosa but he's just coming off ACL surgery, don't know if he'll be ready this fall, same for Kyle Berger, he's had the surgery twice is two years, it's optimistic to count on anything from him.
Because guys like Sam Hubbard and Jaylyn Holmes who played no snaps last year turned out to be studs and a Freshman CB like Eli Apple came in and played right away after Bradley Roby left ahead of guys that were already here. This is a message board where people express opinions, agreement with the expressed opinions isn't a requirement. Since none of us are clairvoyant and know for certain what's going to occur in the future, all we can do is speculate.
I haven't seen anywhere that Weber is "trying to get more kids here." When the Detroit HS players made their visit, they met with Webb and Alabi, Weber wasn't one of the current players that met with them. He did however host Antonio Williams on his OV, per Birm.
