I don't know what all that entails either, but I think it's safe to assume he probably talks to the parents of recruits.  Answers their questions and explains what it would be like as a parent of a OSU student athlete.

That's not a bad way to think about it either.  I think Bosa is a good example of the "once every 5 years" guy ...I think the test for me is if they're so good you have to start them as freshmen.  Funny enough some services thought he was a 5 star and some did not.  Rivals thought he was only the 9th best player in Florida that year.  Florida was pretty loaded but looking back it's still pretty silly.

He uses Hernandez to hammer the point home because obviously if Meyer knew he was a murderer, he wouldn't have recruited him. 

Urban definitely had different recruiting standards down in Florida, but as far as I know, Hernandez wasn't all that bad when Urban recruited him.  Anyone can change pretty quickly if they decide to start hanging around the wrong type of people.  Hernandez obviously went the wrong direction, but I think Urban has also learned not to recruit risky characters anymore.

We were plenty talented last year, but the coaches let us down.  There's so many factors that go into winning a championship; it's most likely not going to happen this year.  Too many starters with inexperience and our toughest schedule in years.  It will however be the "year of development", which is probably just what we need to set us up for the future.  

I'm actually more excited for the upcoming season than I was last year.  It's like the players didn't even want to show up for those games.  Total sleepwalkers... remember when we couldn't score more than 17 points on Hawaii through 3 quarters?  Just ridiculous.
