I predict an ESPN 30 for 30 in about 10 years describing the eventual bankruptcy of this clown and how he ruined his sons careers. Probably entitled "Dropping the Ball" or "Busted Balls". I will eagerly watch.

Fleck seems like high energy coach--which is cool and all. But I really thought he'd get a higher profile job. Minny is better than Rutgers or Purdue, but it will take more than oar-art to get back to a New Years Day 6 game for him.

I think NBA players could suck it up and play at least part of the game so the fans get to see them. If you're a kid waiting to see a certain player come to your town once a year--and then the guy doesn't play at all, that's not cool. Players need to remember that ultimately they are entertainers and the fans pay their salary. For the amount of money they are being paid, they can play a few minutes here and there even if they are at the end of a long road trip. Do it for the kids!

I'm still trying to figure out how the Buckeyes beat Michigan and Wisconsin. I guess they played up to their potential in those two games. Those wins prove there is some talent there, but playing together as a team seemed to elude them more often than not. Some of this is on the players, but the coach is responsible for turning talent into wins.

I really thought he would be amazing when he first played, but he seemed to not have that fire that the great players have. I think he has the talent, but I don't know if he has the attitude or motivation. I hope he gets a chance to play somewhere; I still think he still has a lot of potential.

Tough loss. I normally don't follow hockey, but it was fun to watch. However I found myself enraged upon seeing the bucks lose to TTUN. I couldn't help it.

I'm out in Salt Lake City, Utah. Out here I think USC has the edge on both Harbaugh and Urban because it's closer and its in the PAC 12 (important to kids who grew up Utah Ute fans). Defensive Tackle Tufele(sp?) chose USC over OSU (I think Harbaugh recruited him too).

I wouldn't say I underestimate Harbaugh as a coach. I think he is a good coach. He is a good recruiter as well, I just think some of his antics are a bit immature and looks like he needs attention (tweeting dumb things/talking smack to everyone, the recruiting sleepovers, his whole milk obsession, taking off his shirt to play football when he hadn't taken it off in the previous 20 years). Urban and Saban don't really do stuff like that. I'm not saying it makes him a bad coach; I just don't think he needs to do things to like that to recruit. He's a big name at a big name school, so I think he could tone down his behavior a bit and still do just as well. But I could be wrong. My son's friends on the football team seem to love him. So who knows. I agree Meyer has a head start, but losing so many guys early will eventually take a toll. I wish these guys would stick around.

I know I'm biased, but I can't imagine a recruit thinking Harbaugh or Franklin is better than Meyer. My son is a senior and high school and all the football players love Harbaugh and think he's wonderful and "cooler" than Urban and Saban. I don't get it (although I get that Saban isn't cool, but the guy wins). I guess teenage minds like Harbaugh's clown antics.
