I don't think burrow had announced his destination say the time of this tweet

So the Detroit Lions just hired coombs' soon as the special teams coordinator, and their DC job is still open.  You don't think there's a chance they make a play at Kerry to come coach with his son do you?  Also a connection through Patricia and Vrabel both having pasts with NE.

Haha, but in all honesty there were a few programs starting true freshman those year at QB who put together respectable seasons.  With the 2nd and 9th ranked QBs, I feel a lot better than last year if Fields were to go down.

Didn't sound to me like we were shutting him down from playing a position he wanted to.  More like he reached out to see if it would help if he looked at coming in as a RB, and we told him that's not where we need him.

You might be right about some of this, but 2 points:

- Why would you assume ttun suddenly gets good QB play?  It's year 6 and Harbaugh hasn't developed 1 QB.  This year the 2 guys he'll be picking from backed up the 32nd ranked QB last year.

- The programs you're talking about are notoriously developmental programs.  I'm sure someone else will emerge to fill some roles, that's how they've always made their living.

Sounds like that answer came from coach day though... What does that guy know about the football team?  On the other hand, I'm an inconsistent message board poster.  I'll let you decide who to listen to.

I know Cam Martinez has been a prospect touted for his ability to play any position on the field.  How about he just comes to OSU, puts on 10-15 lbs and becomes our change of pace back?  He has almost 5,000 yards rushing and like 75 wishing tds over the last 2 seasons.

Yeah sorry.  These are the 247 composite ratings (out of 1.000) and position rankings coming out of high school.  Meant to give a general sense of the team talent level.  Although there are always outliers, on a macro scale there is a strong correlation between team performance and roster talent level every year.

I could see an argument for all of them.  Honestly nothing you propose would have much impact on the numbers, but I could see them all happening.  I'd say Jameson Williams especially.

Comment 09 Jan 2020

Yeah, it starts getting pretty wild when you look at the backups too.  

ttun's highest rated backup in this scenario would be Chris Hinton, the 4th ranked DT in his class.

OSU has on the bench: #1 OT, #2 QB, #2 C, #2 DE, #1 DT, #2 ILB, #1 C, #1 DT (transfer)

On another note, Kerry Coombs is looking at coming back to the college game. Michigan should contact him immediately. He would be a  better recruiter and secondary coach than Partridge. Coombs would immediately be the best recruiter in Detroit and Ohio on the staff. He would also probably be a better recruiter than anyone OSU has and he is a great position coach. 750,000 and a Co-DC position would bring him in.

Side note, but Clint is full of bad takes
