No problem, special teams.
ONLY if Tate becomes the 6th man
#1 COACH IN OHIO STATE HISTORY SINCE FRED TAYLOR
THE reason the team in Matta's 2nd year had the success they had is because they were upper classman NOT Freshman.
There's a HUGE difference in upper class talent VS Freshman talent, Unless it's Oden, Conley, Cook and Lighty.
Clueless, with the VERY YOUNG talent on this team and the players coming in and on the horizon Matta is not retiring unless he can't get out of bed and IS NOT going to get fired unless he can't get out of bed. He is THE #1 coach in Ohio State history. He has recruited more talent to Ohio State since Fred Taylor National Championship talent, 60 years ago. .
I don't care who the Ohio State basketball coach is, he will NEVER "KEEP ALL OHIO TALENT IN OHIO". Hell Urban Meyer can't keep "ALL OHIO TALENT IN OHIO". If you're from Ohio and are a top 25 player. Are you going to go to Ohio State OR Kentucky OR Duke OR North Carolina OR Kansas OR Louisville OR Arizona OR Syracuse OR Michigan State. ALL colleges that their coaches would NEVER come to Ohio State to coach and draw talent. Any time Matta gets a Top 100 player from ANY State it is a HUGE accomplishment.
Would rather have had an "OHIO TALENT" instead of Danial Giddens, Mickey Mitchel, JaQuan Lyle, DeAngelo Russel, Bates-Diop, DeShaun Thomas, Evan Turner, Greg Oden, Michael Conley??
Ohio State is STILL the 3rd youngest team in the country and they STILL play like it on the road. Any fool who thought this team was an NCAA Tournament team, knows nothing.
A lot of unknowing people outside the mid-west think of Columbus as a "cow-town" .
It would be a good sign if Clark is healthy enough to contribute on the track team.
Only 5 times a game could really affect the offensive out put.
I had a conversation with a friend who's a head trainer at a school. He told me about a football helmet symposium he went to about 5 years ago. He said he found a helmet tucked away in a corner that was over 50 years old. He took it with him to the meeting. There were machines there that tested the safety of helmets. That 50+ year old helmet tested just as safe as helmets of 5 years ago. What does that tell you?
The length of the scholarships were questioned. They can't be more than one year, as both guys are 5th year seniors.
I'm curious to see how many of these creme of the crop high school athletes in many sports who go to IMG for FREE, while the others pay 10's of thousands,. End up being represented by IMG when they turn Pro. THE REAL REASON for IMG academy. Which WOULD be illegal.
Does ANYONE ask the parents of the players that transfer to IMG where they got the $60,000?
Did Urban purposely hire a lesser QB coach/O-coordinator when he knew there was a far better candidate out there? Was he cheap? Was he lacking in knowledge? He just didn't care? Which is it?
Not as fast, not as good of a blocker, hands not as good.
With 21 players on Ohio State's 2 deep graduating or leaving early, from last year's National Championship team. This year's team was not capable of fulfilling their destiny.
All Ohio State players who left early for the NFL were drafted no lower than the 4th round. That record will be broken this year. As at least 2 will fall lower than the 4th round.
The Big Ten as a whole while be way down next year.
Did you watch the Ohio State Notre Dame game???
JT credits Coach Beck with his developement as a QB this year
BTW, Urban has NEVER fired an assistant.
Late round at best, but since everyone is leaving he won't look as good next year.
May not be as many as you think, even with so many underclassman leaving early. I doubt Urban settles on a lesser player or two, just to give out all of the available scholarships. A couple might be banked for next year when fewer players will be leaving.
I knew they would be leaving early in the year, They already had one National Championship and weren't playing like they REALLY wanted to win two.
He is already there, he is currently allowed to change blocking assignments and plays. He has talked about it in interviews on 11warriors. You should read everyday.
