It’s obviously not an ideal situation, but shouldn’t impact Ohio State’s recruiting efforts too much. 

Looks like we will be back on track sooner than later.

Time to get back to work with some crootin'! Hopefully no ill effects (aside from maybe Powell) will be felt with the temporary absence of Urban.

I just wonder how much impact the scandal will have on recruiting. That 2020 class potentially looked like our best class ever.

Yeah BaBa, God forbid you make a reasonable statement when the author already made a broad generalization

Glad it's over and ready to move on. Makes sense that you mentioned we wouldn't have invited many recruits during these cupcake games at home. 

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

On a side note, Indians got a split at Fenway. I think they can match up just fine with the "best" team in baseball at this point. I've watched every game of the Indians this year and I still believe they have not hit their stride or played their best baseball yet. I hope they hold that for an October run. Go Windians...........

Wtf does this have do to with anything in this article or comments so far? I get that you said "On a side note", but really c'mon man. If you want to talk Indians I'm sure there is a forum for that

Glad it's over and ready to move on. Makes sense that you mentioned we wouldn't have invited many recruits during these cupcake games at home. 

Seattle... have you passed this narrative {"glad it's over"} to the media and our collegial competitors... and the feds [Title IX] and the "justice system"... and most of all, all those 'right in their own mind' that are... 'so wrong'?

I turned on my TV this morning and ...it seems as if a few of "they"... 'didn't get your message'.

Perhaps 'we' could fairly and compassionately start our very own 'Compliance System' to make sure "...it... never... happens... again"? 

 ;-{)}   LoL 

Now i surely no that we don't have this problem be cause 11W already requires us all to first "Log In" before we post... so to speak?

Double down on landing more top Texas recruits out of Herman's grasp.

Now that I’ve calmed down [some], I suppose Urbs being away for the first three will mean very little as far as recruits. And as far as recruiting overall, I doubt his suspension will mean very much. I doubt recruits see this is as “scandalous”; a term being thrown around a lot. 

When I read “blowouts” above though.....what I would love to see now is an angry Urban, who runs it up 70+ points with every possible chance. 

Go Bucks!

Urban  "won't be allowed on campus for the first two games of the season" . I thought he could participate in practice after Sept 3rd which means for the Rutgers game right?  And aren't practices either outside or in the WHAC considered on campus???  Are are you referring for recruiting purposes only ?

You’re looking too far into what you read. He can not attend the games, that’s it.

HS

thanx  Andrew for the verification and it confirms what I thought was true but that is not what you had written .

HS

Yes. Once he is reinstated on Sept. 2, he is not allowed on campus on gameday. That’s it. He can resume any other duties, like I mentioned.

Can some recruits "just happen" to go to Urban's house on those first two game days?

This "you can do your job but you can't go to the game" stuff is just silly to me.

The team is still running itself like an Urban Meyer program. They are running the Urban Meyer offense. Once Urban returns they will be practicing and game-planning the Urban Meyer way.

There's not much for a head coach to do on game day anyway. Just be on the field. Make obvious calls like timeouts. Decide to go for it on 4th and 2. Override certain play calls in an opportunistic way. Talk to your quarterbacks.

With Meyer clearly returning, Ryan Day will not be improvising. He'll just look at his wristband that says "What Would Urban Do?".  I'm confident we'll be fine because Kevin Wilson will be calling the majority of the plays. He's a former head coach and one of Urban's mentors. All Ryan Day has to do is to be present on the sidelines, not screw up the obvious, and ensure the QBs have their head in the game.

The downside of all of this is that Ryan Day will show that he can handle head coaching duties at a premier program like OSU, then we likely lose him after this year. That might have been the outcome anyway, but it certainly adds to the speculation.

It's truly insane that we are truly among the leaders for FOURTEEN top 75 players in 2020

He should be able to speak to players and staff...if these people cared for the players. What if a player has a genuine problem?. From coaching to counseling he’s more than x’s and o’s 

Wherever you are, there you be!

Let Urban do what he does best.....recruit.  I have a hunch the rest of college football is about to get a fist full of Urban and the boys!  

God bless Urban FRANK Meyer

In Antoine Winfield I trust

What's the rule regarding recruiting on the Saturday's that he's not allowed on campus/coach? Are there rules in place that prevent him from speaking to recruits via text or phone on those saturdays? I truly don't know the rules so looking for some information. 

GO BUCKS!
