[Chris Spielman's] dad said, "Okay, where are you going to go?" I said, "Dad, I want to go to Michigan." And he said, "You traitor. I'll tell you where you're going. You're going right down 71 South and you're going to play for the Ohio State Buckeyes. ... Better not go there (Michigan). Don't ever come home if you do."

"Word Origin and History for blue blood:  1834, translating Spanish sangre azul, claimed by certain families of Castile as uncontaminated by Moorish or Jewish admixture, probably from the notion of the visible veins of people of fair complexion."

Haskins was a target from the beginning.

Ohio State is very high on — and high on the list of — a few of the country's best 2016 quarterbacks including Jarrett Guarantano, Dwayne Haskins, and Jawon Pass... If they decide to take a quarterback and none of those top three choose Ohio State, where might the Buckeyes' attention turn? Two names top that list: DeSoto, Texas' Tristen Wallace...

My recollection matches Broward's. Guarantano and Haskins were the top 2 targets (in that order), and Haskins lost interest after OSU picked up Torrance Gibson. Wallace didn't become a priority until after Haskins effectively took himself out of the picture.

"Gosh, I think that Urban Meyer is a swell coach.  Honestly, I do!"

Straight trash talk would be less annoying.

I'm surprised you're going to get Gary, considering the incentives Ole Miss and USC almost certainly offered. He must genuinely love UM.

So we are losing recruits to OSU because we fired a horrible HC and did not bring back a solid recruiter.  We should ask ourselves how smart are these kids that they committed to Edsall and Locks. I guess they didn’t watch any of the games over the past five years.

That might be the most self-defeating argument I've ever seen a fan make.  More or less, "Maryland is a terrible program, and only an idiot would have committed to play under the previous regime."

Remember when we were all jumping off the cliff about how bad the Buckeyes defense was not that many moons ago? Urban said, "I'm going to get more involved." What happened? Stuff got fixed, and we're back to the Silver Bullets.

That took over a year, and involved firing and replacing the DC.  A genuinely bad Michigan offense put 600 yards on the Buckeyes, including 450 passing yards by Devin Gardner (lol).  The cliff jumpers were (temporarily) right.

Urban Meyer may be the best OSU coach ever.  I think he is.  He will fix this at some point.  But in the short term, his promise to be more "hands on" doesn't inspire confidence.  The offense's problems are deep and systemic, and he won't resolve them this week.  OSU will have to gut it out to beat Michigan this time.

[Bowden] could end up being the 2nd QB in this class if the staff doesn't feel comfortable with just Danny Clark.

"Clark does know is that he's the only quarterback in the 2017 class, that much coach Urban Meyer has promised."

I root for Penn State to lose forever until the fan base collectively disowns Joe Paterno.  As long as Black Shoe Diaries treats him like a victim/saint, they deserve nothing but suffering as football fans.

Penn State is repulsive.  Michigan is smug and mildly annoying.  This is an easy call:  Michigan needs to destroy PSU.

NY Times:

In September, the president of the Missouri Students Association, Payton Head, who is black, posted on Facebook that a group of men had yelled racial slurs at him, and said it was not the first time he had suffered that kind of abuse at the university.

In early October, the Legion of Black Collegians, a student group, was rehearsing a homecoming event, when a white man walked onto their stage and used racial epithets about the black students. When activists tried to confront Mr. Wolfe days later at the Homecoming Parade, he avoided them, leading to accusations that he was dismissive of their concerns.

Later that month, someone used feces to scrawl a swastika in a university building.

Bad men allegedly spoke hurtful words.  Also poop swastika.
