Very cool to know Smith reached out to him on a personal level, offering to help the individual even if it didn't benefit the athletic program. That, to me, raises Smith's reputation. Ohio State is going to be fine (excel?) without any single individual.  So it's good to see Smith knows the forest from the trees and is willing to do what's right for B. Miller if that's what he wants.  THAT is what builds and fosters loyalty. 

Thanks for the great info Eric!

I agree with other comments - the law makes sense.  While - to Nick's point - it does little to help the athlete, It also does nothing to hurt the athlete....and it gives consequences to the vulchers preying on kids who are already in a compromised position relative to the School and the NCAA and may feel a sense of unfairness going on. 

The idea of amateurism and the benefits to the student athlete need to catch up with the big business that revenue college sports has become, but this law does nothing to hurt progress on that front.

Maybe my memory is off.... but I think Iowa State did have their best offensive years under Herman.  It's all relative and we're talking about the little brother program in Iowa.  Herman was a rising star already when Urban hired him. 

That said... I think Urban is the straw that stir's the drink for our offensive production.  If true, Welcome to the Urban Meyer apprenticeship program. 

I agree that I hope Warriner gets a pay raise.

The wear and tear is a good point, but another point is that these 2 teams get more bowl practices than any other teams in FBS. Unique for such a young team to be in this situation, and hopefully will pay dividends next year and beyond.... Not only for the all the kids getting playing time now, but all those in 2 and 3 deep.

When I saw the tweet I took it more as: 

these problems are still continuing just like they did under Meyer. 

 

More so than: 

Meyers loose culture is still percolating and causing problems. 

 

Either way they should keep Urb's name out of their mouths... But media needs eyeballs and trolling does get some.

PLEASE take this guys mug off your blog.  Disturbs me everytime i see it.  You're probably seeing less return visitors today than you have in the past.

He gave a great interview and looks to have his head on straight. I'm glad see UM go get kids like this. Looks like a quality individual!  I was scared when I saw the stuff spewing from Stafon Diggs, and am honestly a little thankful he's not coming. We don't need kids like that. 

 

Kids like this is what we want.
