My 11 year old has been waiting following Gibson's recruitment from the beginning.  He's a HUGE fan (we live in Florida).  Thinks Gibson is even better suited for Meyer's offense than some guy named Braxton.  He tried to get me to go to a game down here but just couldn't work out the logistics.  Needless to say, he already has a HUGE fan.

If my son needs to make a few phone calls Torrance, just let him know.  ;)  Go Buckeyes.  NOTHING like Buckeye nation.  You will be set for life.  Just ask:

National: Jack Buck, Chris Spielman, Robert Smith, Eddie George, Kirk Herbstreit, Cris Carter, Glen Mason, Mike Tomczak, Tony White, Clark Kellogg, Bob Knight, Jim Jackson, Bill Hosket.

Local: Dee Miller, Demetrius Stanley, Justin Zwick, Jim Lachey, Ron Stokes, Greg Frey, Earl Bruce, Craig Krenzel, Jeff Logan, Rob Harley, Maurice Hall, Brandon Joe.

It isn't slander but his faux conversation is absurd.  He states it as if it's fact that Gibson won't see the field as a QB.  How could he possibly know that?  We know absolutely nothing about these kids from their aptitude to their willingness to work hard enough to make the cut.  To state things as if you're in Meyer's confidence or can foresee the future, quite frankly, makes you (Maka) look like an idiot.

He would be INSANE to take that job.  First, the rigors of recruiting.  Then you're in a state that really doesn't offer many top recruits so every one is going to be out of state and a battle.  There is no continuity to a college team and he's won at the highest level of the NFL.  What's to be gained?  There are a TON of NFL teams that would love to have him.

Michigan is going to be hard pressed to ever get back to where they once were (see Nebraska).  Times have changed.  Even Cass Tech players don't want to go there.  With Urban and Dantonio around, no high profile coach in their right mind needs that job.  They need to hope they find a young Urban Meyer.  I see that as their only chance.

What it boils down to is that Harrris has been the prom queen forever. He's shocked that one of his suitors moved on before he had a chance to reject them.  It's the "what's wrong with ME" syndrome. People been kissing his ass forever. After that, perceived rejection is tough for the ego.

Time to move on. I've felt for a long time that if he was going to be a Buckeye he would have committed by now. He's stringing it along to keep the Kentucky people happy but I fully expect him to commit to Bama. I don't think he was ever coming here.

I'd like to know what the hell TCU has done to earn the number 3 ranking?  Their best win is against Kansas St. They barely beat Oklahoma, West Virginia, and FREAKING Kansas. 

Meanwhile, of the top six teams, tOSU has beaten the highest ranked team #8 MSU on the road, highest winning percentage of opponents 54% and tied with Bama for most bowl eligible teams at 8. 

I believe they've done exactly what you need the do, get better every week, but will ultimately get screwed out of a spot in the playoff for an overrated TCU.

I'm ok with this. We need to continue to upgrade our defense. We can survive not getting our choice WRs or RBs. To me, defensive line always at the top of the list. 

Comment 30 Nov 2014

Been saying this since everyone was saying JT is better than Braxton. JT is good. But you have to account for the system. It's no coincidence what Urban's QBs have done, going all the way back to Bowling Green.  Cardale is obviously not as good as JT or he would be starting. But I am optimistic about the offense. 

Quite honestly I am more concerned about the defense. 

Comment 30 Nov 2014

With all the shots Muschamp has taken at Urban there is zero chance. Even today at his last news conference he said,"We didn't win enough games. But I won't hang my head. We were hired to clean up the program and that's what we did."  Yeah, tough to figure out who THAT is a shot at. What a douche. I hope he stays unemployed. Total jerk of a person. 

Comment 19 Nov 2014

This might be the most backward ass argument I've ever wasted my time reading. So LOSSES are how you rate the teams AND your entire premise is based on who you believe is most deserving based on those loses?  Did you miss the whole "four best teams" part that's been emphasizes since oh....forever? 

I believe on a neutral field, tOSU would smoke Miss St, TCU, and Baylor.

What effect could the new hire at florida (Rich Rod) have on Torrance Gibson's conmitment? That is a huge worry for me.
