Well, let's hope he can take all the sure-thing future draft picks who are on the roster, combine it with the new coaches, and win the East and win the B1G this year.  I know I'm in the minority here but I don't really get all that excited about being an NFL factory without championships...or at least making it to the conference championship game.  I think "The Chase" needs to be brought back.  We are still chasing Bama when it comes to winning the conference when you're supposed to win it.  When Urban doesn't win the B1G, lots of great stuff is going on, but he is still doing less with more, in my opinion.

Pretty obvious these guys are elite athletes. They don't have to specialize to be able to compete. They can dominate whatever sport they want to.  The average kid has to specialize to be better than average in a single sport.  That's the deal and as long as "elite" this and "select" that exists, kids will keep specializing bc many of their parents feel it's their duty to put the kids in it and pay the fortunes it costs.

I think spring ball would be great for football players, teams and programs. However, I don't know how a school has 18 practices during the spring when kids are playing baseball, running track, playing lacrosse, etc. 

In 15 years as a high school football coach, it's hard enough to consistently get multisport guys in the weight room during spring sports. This is especially true at midsize to small schools.  

I'm sure there is a way to work it out, but it certainly wouldn't be done by one size fits all rules. There would have to be flexibility by the ohsaa and they don't have a good history of that.  Parents, other sports coaches, and administrators would have to be flexible too. They often aren't at all. It's a tough problem.

I don't get why people are starry eyed over "sexy" talent and top 5 recruiting rankings. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad it's there but I I judge a program by championships. One B1G Championship for Urban really takes away from all the recruiting success. (The National Championship speaks for itself. But bad losses each of the last two years is a buzz kill.)

Yes. Now...imagine what he may be able to do outside of a passing game that has been a total CF for long stretches of his career.  This pass game problem has been recurring throughout Urban's tenure. Maybe with a guys that's been doing it as long as Wilson, he will have 100% control (or as close to it as you get ) over what's happening.
