They dont even do wings in _ichigan. Their bbq was probably vegetarian hotdogs and turkey burgers washed down with milk.

I mean, someone shot, cleaned, and cooked the last wolverine in that state up north years ago, and let me tell you - it tasted like the rest of their state - a giant steaming turdburger.

Sure. We make fun of everything they do.
You don't have to invent the thing, just do it better than the competition. How to throw a better BBQ for recruits than Michigan: 1. Make sure the coach leaves some food for the kids (Hoke). 2. Make sure the coach keeps his shirt on, doesn't start a spirited game of tag, doesnt climb into a treehouse, dosen't chug milk out the jug, and, most importantly, doesnt try to hit on any of the recruits' teenage sisters.

I'd like to know what kind of food they had.  Maybe we finally got some of that honey fried chicken?

Does Kat's Kraft BBQ serve smoked wolverine?  I hope these newest BBQ fed recruits acquire a taste for smoking wolverine.

I think the critics should quiet now. Day and his staff are having huge recruiting success.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

Taylor - this is an interesting piece. The inference is that the BBQ resulted in Ohio State commitments from highly rated recruits who might have easily gone elsewhere if they hadn't attended.

However, is it just as likely that the highly rated recruits that attended the BBQ already wanted to be at Ohio State, and the event simply gave them an opportunity prior to what may have been an eventuality? I think what's needed is testimony from one or more of the recruits to the effect that the BBQ changed their opinion of Ohio State as a school and team, the character and relationship with the other recruits and current players, etc.  This would more definitively indicate that the event swayed them from another choice of school.

Don't get me wrong - the event seemed fun and brought the kids, coaches, and players together to help bond, but I don't know that it was the game-changer (pun intended) in recruiting that the article made it out to be.

Trust me! I'm an Engineer.

There weren't any recruits invited who were completely flipped or swayed from interest in other schools. The recruits that were invited all had good relationships with the staff. This event was intended to lock in those guys, and that's what it did.

Getting the chance to get many recruits on campus in a social setting seems like a great idea to me.  I'm sure a lot of thought and effort was put into the event and it will only get better each year.  The interaction between recruits and with current players can build bonds and brotherhood that might translate to team chemistry and help on the field down the road.

Someone check the sauce! 

And while you're at it, can I pre-order a case of that stuff for 2021? 

Just don't let the let the lab rats down at Alabama or Clemson get a hold of a bottle to figure out the staff's new secret recipe.

It was a huge success but what if they did the Friday night lights would it made any difference just asking. I don't like to judge things on a small sample size as the other event did well too and had more players at the event. I think Day changed it up for a reason and maybe he saw a flaw in FNL. Myself a big believer in casting a big net and maybe a better chance to catch more talent. Tress I always thought never offered enough kids. Either way next year should be interesting to see how the results go with the BQ. Then again if we have a great year they can have bread and water and kids will sign up here.

Isn’t FNL part of OSU’s football camp? I don’t see that going away anytime soon.
