At what point do recruits start to think about whether Urban might not be around for their 4-5 years?
Can we get the #1 class?
Strike that ... I don't ever want to see a close-up of his fat face
Can't wait to see a close-up of Hoke's face the first time Damon Webb gets an interception against UM
Coach just cares about one thing - win with class
Vrabel upped our cool factor by 10x ... How could this not hurt recruiting? Sucks
We have 4-5 star players and unlimited resource for salaries, why in the world would we have mediocre Coaches on the defensive side?
We can't let down he players!
Hard work and talent will not be enough for this defense to improve. We need new D coaches. Period.
Tressel showed that he could take his system from Division 1-AA to OSU, and he would be equally adaptable in the NFL.
This would be exactly what the Browns need
How cool if Tressel won:
Four Division 1-AA championships,
An NCAA Championship, and
A Super Bowl
all in the State of OHIO
coolest thing ever
Love how this would be like how Paul Brown coached OSU and the Browns (and Bengals). Unique to The state of OHIO!
It will be painful to watch JT struggle with the Browns, but if that is what he wants, he deserves a shot.
I want whatever is best for JT. He forever deserves my gratitude!
I don't think it will even be remotely close.
Urban's record in big / bowl games speaks for itself.
We can run on anyone - and that's one of Clemson's weaknesses.
And this is El Guapo's real NFL tryout.
We have a QB who is looking to prove his value at the next level.
And he lines up behind an amazing offensive line ...which has been insulted by Clemson.
This is Fickell's chance to show Urban what he can do as the de facto sole defensive coordinator.
This one is easy money.
I live for days like today:
Alabama lost and The Big 10 is trending up in the bowls, more to come tonight
Brady's 5-year plan is entertaining. I hope he coaches them forever.
Huge game tonight.
Lattimore announces today, and then other chips will fall into place.
I'm not working!
Raekwon is exactly what we need! It's obvious that he "gets it".
Bill O'Brien was the best thing that ever happened to PSU and its delusional fan base chased him away.
I hope PSU gets what they deserves, which is a couple decades of mediocrity.
I mean no disrespect to Clemson and it's fans, especially because I think Dabo is a likeable guy, but it is time for us to put up style points!
We need a statement win.
In the Big 10, Clemson would be nothing more than middle-of-the-pack.
Style points ... let's get some momentum going into next year!
If I was Urban, I would pay Ed Warriner whatever it takes to make him untouchable. He is certainly worth more than Chad Morris at Clemson, and they locked him up for $1.3M.
He has repeatedly proven that he can develop offensive lineman, and once he starts working with the new recruits we are going to be unstoppable.
We have the luxury at OSU of having more money than we need, so let's use our competitive advantage and pay our assistants better than anyone in the country. If they leave for head coaching jobs, good for them...but let's make sure we did everything we could to retain them.
Retaining Warriner greatly enhances our chances to keep Braxton for another year. And Warriner's top notch Offensive line will help bring in the QB/RB recruits as well
I think Braxton is staying.
My guess is that some fans' reaction to the end of our winning streak has made him feel unappreciated, and he is subconsciously looking for positive attention.
After the Clemson game, Urban and Herman will sit down with him and do what they do best ... recruit him.
Once he sees that two of the best coaches in the country want to work on HIS development every day for another year, he'll quickly come around.
