I might be alone in this, but Harbaugh's insanity (and it is most definitely that) makes him someone to be feared because you just never know what to expect from a person that unhinged.
We shouldn't be dealing with this in the aftermath of a national championship. I think most everyone wants to win the right way and I believe wholeheartedly we were doing that. All of this is unnecessary.
Yeah. They have Willie Henry there now. They've never gotten a recruit from Glenville who had an offer to Ohio State though.
It's pretty obvious, and I'm sure Birm cannot confirm, that Wilcher was recruiting Weber to Michigan behind Ohio State's back. His dramatics today really mean nothing to me.
That said, Ohio State still should have been upfront with the young man.
No, we don't. We know that's what we've been told. Sounds like the interview was a formality.
It's immoral. It's wrong. Whether it's against the rules is immaterial to me. Lying or hiding a pertinent fact from a recruit because you know it may affect their decision to attend your school is ... FLAT. OUT. WRONG. Period.
The only question is whether that actually happened in this case. Hard to believe that Drayton and/or Meyer were not aware of him leaving for Chicago, especially considering the timing. If they were aware, they fucked up and they should apologize, let the kid out of his LOI, and never do it again.
And just because this stuff happens other places doesn't mean it needs to happen HERE. That's the damn dumbest defense of this bullshit I've ever heard.
I can't believe the amount of people defending this based on the "business" rationale.
NEWSFLASH: College football isn't a normal business. Recruiting isn't a normal business. You are not dealing with two experienced sides in these negotiations. On one side, you have well-paid professional coaches. On the other side, you have a high school senior. If people refuse to see the gap there, then you've probably gone too far in your fandom of this team/program.
Looks like oversigning. Smells like oversigning.
Yeah, I don't think I'm ever buying a jersey for more than 40 dollars. Ever. I'll wait until they hit the clearance rack.
Braxton Miller will be Ohio State's starting quarterback next year unless he leaves for the NFL or gets hurt.
Couple of things:
1. No injuries. No arrest. Most of these situations result in both parties requesting no charges. There probably won't be any charges.
2. If you let a girl live with you in your apartment (which I don't know if that's the case here), you can't just kick her out.
Such a dumb way to determine a tournament game. #TeamGoldenGoal
I'd complain more about the weak slate of SEC/FCS games this weekend if we didn't have to play Indiana.
I think we finish with a couple more guys. Dream lists are stupid.
Harris, obviously. Given what we want to do on offense (spread it out horizontally and vertically, while maintaining an inside run game), he's perfect. But things don't look good.
The Cold could be an interesting issue on Saturday night. Remember: JT comes from Texas. This will probably be the coldest game he's ever played and it's only going to get colder from here on out.
I hope he goes to Virginia Tech. I think he can be a difference maker there.
And it means he's not playing for FSU or in the SEC.
He has the reputation of a freak athlete in the mold of Josh Sweat. But does he have the production to match the athleticism?
I agree. The loss looks more and more like a fluke. And it looks more and more like Ohio State is vastly improved from that game.
However, I have no idea if that's the kind of perspective anyone on the playoff committee might have about it.
That was a very unique scenario in the Big 12 South. You had Oklahoma beat Texas Tech who beat Texas who beat Oklahoma. The division champ went to a ludicrous tiebreaker. Because you didn't even have a clearcut winner of that division, I would have been fine with two teams getting in... under that very odd scenario.
Generally, however, you should have to win your division. I hated that LSU had to have a rematch with Alabama AFTER they had already beaten Alabama in Tuscaloosa AND had to play in the SEC Title game. That put LSU at a disadvantage going into the NC game because they had to play one more BIG game than Bama at the end of the season. LSU would have been better off losing the first game to Alabama and then catching a bye during championship week.
I'm still not ready to concede the guilt or innocence of Jameis Winston on the sexual assault allegation. It's almost impossible for anyone other than he and the girl to know the truth. It's a difficult situation.
He, however, hasn't done himself any favors with the crab leg theft and the sexually-charged comment he made on campus. That, coupled with possible NCAA violations, makes it difficult to give him the benefit of the doubt anymore. But, alas, I will not pretend to know something I don't know.
It would be nice to get Brian Cole in for a visit as well.
