You are incorrect in your statement regarding that '06 Florida team. Media were talking about Zook and how well he recruited while he was at Florida even before the BCS game in '06. They almost all point out how Zook couldn't win with those stud recruits who were now playing at a very high level for Meyer. Zook couldn't coach. It was meant as a complement to Meyer, and was thrown around even before the clock ran out during the BCS title game. I am almost positive the broadcasters brought Zook up during the game. Florida fans simply tried to change the narrative AFTER Meyer left, because they wanted to discredit him. Credit went his way while he was there for what he did with the same players that Zook could only take to 7-5 record.
In relation to tOSU, it doesn't really matter to me whose players are whose and anything else regarding the make up of the current roster. JT took tOSU program to another level when he took over for Cooper, and Meyer has done the same with the standard from the Tressel era. The bar has been raised higher with each permanent HC since Cooper. The program has continued to improve and that is all that matters to me. They are both fantastic coaches! One is already a HOF coach and Meyer will be there too one day.
