I guess we'll never know what a great coach would actually do, since tOSU wasn't intelligent enough to hire Stu10 over Urban Meyer.
Holding a contrarian position is fine, but the way said contrarian position is presented makes all the difference in the world. Stu needs some refinement in that area.

TG being in C'bus is great news! It's further indication that the young man has taken the next step in his maturation.
I'm sure he can do anything he wants to with his team mates - as long as it isn't in the football facilities (isn't the Oval public property; he could practice routes with JT)​.
Seriously, though, I don't think a suspension from the University this semester means he can't have contact with his Buckeye brothers. I don't even believe it precludes "contact" with coaches (if not in person, certainly via the interwebz).

From Vico's "Better Know a Buckeye: Malik Hooker" article on Eleven Warriors, 22 May 2014:

Little has been said of him and not much footage of him is available. Likely a safety, he is part of a recruiting class that features Army All-American Erick Smith and other Army All-American defensive backs like Damon Webb and Marshon Lattimore. Hooker might be a forgotten man in this recruiting class.

Kudos to Malik, the coaching staff and, especially Malik's mom, for helping him stay grounded and grinding. Vico's article also mentioned he might have the highest "upside" of any of the DB recruits.
It's too bad Urban doesn't know how to recognize talented diamonds-in-the-rough and then develop them into NFL 1st round draft picks!

Honestly, if we make the Playoff, it will be the first time all year we'll be on the field with another team that has the talent of this group - yes, I'm including Oklahoma, too. Not saying we'll win in Norman, but we have more talent (and definitely better coaches).
