Big difference between being head coach and an assistant (see Luke Fickell), and he isn't even quite an assistant. I don't think his record elsewhere as a head coach really matters for what he is doing for us.
Houston would be a much better addition than Boise State. They are stronger in a lot more sports than Boise, they have an elite recruiting ground, and much a much better TV market. Also I would guess that Houston will be better in football over the next decade. Herman may or may not stick around, but what he is building won't be torn down over night.
Very well deserved. Our athletic department has never been as successful on the field and in the classroom. I have been saying that I thought he was the best AD for a while. Now it's confirmed.
He is one of the most improved announcers. His first couple years he was awkward and kind of sounded like a dumb jock. But has developed into an insightful and comfortable announcer. Will be great to see him on OSU games if Fox gets the B1G games.
Guess that's why they call him Joey Bats and not Joey Fists.
They are very different players and won't play the same position in our offense. They are both great players though so picking one over the other is tough. I guess if we got Grimes then Tyjon might fit an area of need more since Grimes and DPJ are both outside guys. Of course if we are able to somehow get all 3 you won't see me complaining.
I think it matters how it happened. This case isn't perfectly ideal since he's been committed for a while, but at least they let him know of their intent with almost a year left before signing day. It would have been better had they offered that straight up, but they didn't realize how well they'd be able to recruit other top RBs when he committed most likely. If they offered a grayshirt with a month or less before signing day, then I agree, that is pretty crappy because he wouldn't have any time to find a new spot.
Love the OL guys we got in this small class. We have a lot of players ahead of them, but it's great to have two really good players that can come in and compete since we don't need another 4-5 guys this year.
Don't bad mouth players, especially publicly on twitter. That basically is true for everyone, but especially coaches. There is nothing good that can come of it.
The curse of Archie Griffin is strong. You never cross Archie.
NFL Network rubbing it in Eisen's face that OSU is dominating Michigan in the draft. Hilarious. Urban doesn't even have to say anything.
Seattle is a great spot for Vannett, he's going to be really great there.
Hopkins, Fuller, and Braxton in Houston. If they can get the QB situation figured out, that offense is going to be explosive.
Tyvis wasn't going to improve his stock much. He already had so much tape that if anything another year might have hurt him because then he is too old and that body clock ticks pretty fast in football. Marshall is a bit different, but honestly its his decision and he did what he thought was best for himself and his family.
If only Baylor had someone on their payroll that had experience investigating inappropriate relationship activities between a man and a woman.... Maybe this time his investigation will lead to someone losing their job.
Looks like it was about a team down south, but LOL that Nebraska thought they were relevant.
Agreed, I think the Nebraska guy took offense but Smith wasn't aiming his earlier comments at him. Thus the Homer Simpson fading away tweet.
Yeah, I think that one was directed at Nebraska and the rest were somewhere else because, lol Nebraska ain't relevant.
Lee was offered by Meyer/Fickell.
Exactly, timing on this issue is the most important thing. I suppose it would have been nice to be able to say to Sibley from the beginning that all we had room for was a grayshirt for him. At that time, we did have space. It's a tough call the later it gets because technically the rules let you do this until you send out written offers which ends up being really late because kids are committing earlier and earlier and classes fill up.
I think it is more inexperienced and unproven than thin. There are a lot of bodies there, just not too many w/ playing time yet. Of course as someone with game experience, Munger's loss hurts that even more.
Yeah totally get that, but when reading through your post quickly, it just seemed like the "one" that was breaking off was a limb and not a clot.
Sorry I know this isn't supposed to be a funny post, but when I read "if one breaks off" I thought you were referring to "limbs" for a second and I was like "Well that escalated quickly!"
No doubt that there is a hill to climb, but ESPN has been struggling and if anyone can challenge them it is the B1G. Delany deserves the benefit of the doubt given what he has done with the conference.
And at the end of the day it comes down to winning. If OSU wins another championship or two soon and UM, MSU, PSU, and anyone else that wants to join the party can join in with some big wins going forward, the brand will be fine. Also the B1G has a lot of fans that will watch no matter where it airs, it just might be harder to reach some of the casual non-local fans, but wins will help that too.
