Lakota East High School 02-05. Center/Guard. Undersized but had D3 coaches recruiting me (no scholarships in D3). Decided to attend OSU instead. I sometimes begin to regret not playing longer because it would have helped my coaching career, but I met my fiance and half my groomsmen at OSU, so I can't regret anything.

Observations into how different things are now: 1) 28-3 in the 3rd quarter was considered mop up time. I think we can agree that Urbs would still have the starters in. 2)Herby as a junior was built like our incoming freshmen.

I'm also a huge fan of the triple option. Outside veer was my favorite play call when I was coaching. We had some speedy backs that did very well on the edge.

Also, I know Stanford ran the hell out of this with Hairball there. Oregon couldn't stop it.

I'm a big fan of the power play. As a guard in high school, there was nothing more fun than pulling and lead blocking. Not sure how much we run it now, but when we were more of a pro-style offense, we ran it all the time. I believe Bollman is actually credited with creating the shuffle pull step many teams, like mine, used to execute this.

I think age and immaturity have everything to do with poor choices. You're telling me that you never lied after the age of 16 even though you knew it was wrong? It's easy to say what you would and wouldn't do when some of the largest brands in the country aren't trying to woo you. I'm not saying what he did is right or that it should be forgotten, but people need to ease up and stop taking it personally.

While all this is very disrespectful, keep in mind that he is a 16 year old kid with a still developing brain before we make any negative comments. I know I hadn't handled every situation with the proper couth. 

With that being said, you can't really blame the staff for distancing itself after being treated like that. I hope he has success in life wherever he lands and he learns from this experience.

Oh I still watch live sports. Chromecast and some probably illegal websites help with that

Although I should get one, being that I often miss noon games from coaching JV football games.
