Jim Harbaugh lived in the state of Ohio for something like 4 - 5 years of his life, the last of which he would have been 7 years old. Not like he cut his football teeth in the state.
Comment 24 Feb 2015
Your argument would make total sense if Harbaugh and Drayton both had the same contract situation. Harbaugh was under contract through the 2015 season with the 49ers, Drayton's contract with Ohio State was set to expire at the end of this April.
Comment 19 Feb 2015
Just a comment to the original post. Over the past 50 years, Ohio State recognizes national championships from the '68, '70 and '02 seasons in addition to the most recent title captured this season. It drives me nuts to no end that our own fans dismiss the '61 & '70 championships because they weren't the AP or coaches poll titles.
Comment 18 Feb 2015
Ohio State does not claim titles for the 1944 & 1973 seasons but they most certainly have claimed the '61 and '70 titles. Both of these awards are pretty prestigious, in fact the FWAA Grantland Rice Trophy was the first national championship trophy to be awarded and the National Football Foundation is the same organization that administers the College Football Hall of Fame. Don't buy the narrative that the only parties capable of selecting a national champion were AP members and GA's/SID's filling out a coach's ballot.

Were it not for USC having to vacate the '04 season, Earle would have four multiple national title winners @ the Division 1 level in his coaching tree. That's impressive.

You know how we got Weber to sign his LOI? UofM signed another RB after they told him he would be the only one they take. Otherwise, he's a Wolverine.  Damn shady of Meyer and Drayton to send Karan Higdon a UofM LOI. 

Comment 06 Feb 2015
According to Sam Webb, Weber did not know Higdon was visiting. He even said Higdon arrived on campus after Weber left. http://michigan.scout.com/forums/2019-stadium-and-main/13633600-on-mike-weber?s=162&page=2

Nobody's getting self righteous about a kid visiting the hometown team one last time. We're pointing out it was done on the down low without the Buckeye staff knowing. Kinda hypocritical to complain about a lack of honesty on one side when it's missing on the other as well. Relationships are a two way street. The fact that Weber was, by all accounts, set to sign with UofM on Wednesday until he found out about Higdon signing with them earlier kinda kills the whole position coach relationship argument. We have a family member who was on JT's first two squads. His most important (and lasting) relationships were with fellow players, not coaches.

50% of the "public outrage" is coming from UofM fans. You know, the school who told Weber he was their only RB and then sent out a letter of intent to another RB as well? The other 50% of the feigned outrage is coming from Ohio State fans.

Walmart Wolverine = Ohioan non-alum UofM fan, most likely the kid you wanted to punch in the face in school because he was the class contrarian. See Hoke, Brady.
Comment 05 Feb 2015
Please. Weber took a visit to UofM over the weekend, which Ohio State didn't know about. A big deciding point in actually signing with the Buckeyes was him finding out UofM was signing a second back. So Weber's relationship with Drayton was so strong that had Higdon not signed with UofM, Weber was almost assuredly going to break it himself?
