So recruits...where ya'll want to go to play college football?
Owens is certainly #1.
Krenzel was maddeningly inconsistent in the passing game...but man did he ever make plays when the game was on the line! Held my breath every time he dropped back to pass!
Does the NCAA actually have any foresight when they rule on issues...or do they just act reactionary in the moment. Seriously they're worse than politicians.
To be clear I agree with this ruling.

The sick thing is I seriously doubt anything major will happen with this incident.
One thing for sure, it's hard to REALLY know who is to blame without being there. As fans on the outside all we can do is look at what facts were presented. We struggled horribly until Warriner went in the booth and now we've completely changed our offensive staff to keep that dynamic intact. Until he shows otherwise I don't think Meyer will make nepotic decisions, like Tressel with Bollman, so I think Beck must be doing something substantial. I guess we'll know a lot more next season.
Man, what a time to be a masking agent developer!
He will do well in a power run based offense early in his career, like Joe Flacco did at Baltimore and Tom Brady did at New England. They weren't asked to do it all early, but eventually they developed and took on more.
Kids never decommit last minute though right? A verbal commit is unofficial...it's real when the kid signs. It's not a perfect situation but at the very least Meyer gave him time to find a new home or come to play at Ohio State but just not at the specific date he wanted.
I can guarantee Dantonio is salivating over the prospects of an Ohio kid spurned by Ohio State coming to MSU. He's built his program with guys like him.
Usually the worst are those who haven't won; see Michigan.
I think USC was pretty bad during the heyday of Carroll. That made seeing Vince Young slay them all the more enjoyable.
Duke was unbearable in 1990-91.
Absolutely correct. I loved Tressel, but we were clearly outclassed talent-wise against the SEC and USC. We have to be a national recruiting power like Alabama, USC, Florida State and all the rest.
I've always wondered if something behind the scenes had happened to completely mess things up...for me its still kind of the unanswered question that I will always have. There was no way Tressel and Company were going to top Meyer than night though.
For me that 2007 title game showed that the new style of coach (Meyer) was on the rise. The "steady as she goes" days were over, and the type A, ultra competitive and relentless type guys (Saban/Meyer/Fisher/Swinney) were going to rule the sport. Promoting video coordinators to QB coach (Siciliano), keeping a struggling offense around (Bollman) and playing ultra conservative wasn't going to beat teams with equal or better talent very often...and we witnessed it along with the rise of the SEC right after that game.
Penn State to "whiteout" again...
Urban Meyer and his Buckeyes to kick Penn State's ass again.
I like predictability!
13. Great job with the test!
I like Texas, Oregon, Kansas State and Houston. I usually root for the big time teams to win so us fans can have the best matchups across the board. I hated and still hate Boise State.
Based on seeing Weber Saturday and Dunn from last season I think it's Weber. He hits the hole quicker and has a WAY lower pad level. Maybe Dunn has improved quite a bit, but until I see it I'm all in for Weber. Both will certainly get carries but I think Weber will be the hot hand more often than not.
"We need to start Burrow" - Fans after JT struggles for a game.
Unless you count the photoshopped Dolphins games.
Have to be happy with what we've seen from Burrow. He's going against a second team defense but he's showing a lot of poise and touch. JT is playing behind an overmatched line.
Dear recruit come to Michigan, where you'll have to dodge our drunk and hostile facilities maintenance staff that purposefully drives heavy equipment at you.
Perhaps this was a preliminary experiment where Harbaugh actually wants to field test if his players can fight in a terminator style war against the machines.
