He was one of the biggest recruits in the country... an urban meyer favorite who he said was right up there with Burrow and Haskins... he did have an 82.7% completion percentage as back up with no interceptions. He did go to OSU for several years... so... I think it is more weird how someone mentioning him would trigger you to throw insults; you might not be the more mature one here you think.

favorite cfb moment of all time was watching the team win that 2014 wiscy game. Had to win by that much and keep wiscy scoreless to guarantee entry into the cfp and they did it.

ADs aren't very bright it seems. This man should have been at major program forever ago. Almost nobody has achieved as much as Leach at terrible programs. Texas Tech was a 6-6 team when he took over and WSU had won 1 or 2 games three of four years under the previous head coach.

Beast is 100% right. The targeting call, I don't get how OSU fans don't see it as targeting. In like 100% of targeting calls one fan base believes they are right and the other fan base believes it is wrong. Lets just admit if we were clemson we would think it was targeting and stop thinking we aren't biased.

The overturned Fumble though... there is not even a 1% chance that is a fumble or the ball was loose. That is absolutely crazy to overturn that on "indisputable video evidence". That call was insane-like-who-is-being-paid-insane. I generally think people are waay too hard on officials, but that is the worst overturned bad call I have ever seen in my life. I legitmately think there is a 60-65% chance whoever did that got paid illegally to influence the game. It is so beyond bad that I can't fathom doing that.

JT was short? I honestly think he made it (by a few inches). But its not hard to see how all UM fans with their added bias will disagree. This call? I can't imagine a single Clemson fan honestly thinking it wasn't a fumble. This is crazy.

I disagree with this whole comment thread above. 

#1 one of the most difficult and mature things a person can do is take themselves out of a bad situation they grew up in or be smart enough to get away from temptation as opposed to try and resist it. 

Also, if you have ever worked with troubled youth, like ones with fathers in prison you know how nearly impossible it is to get these kids to take themselves out of the environment they grew up in so they can succeed instead of repeat the cycle of crime and poverty.

I knew a kid once who needed help getting a job, after helping him get every job he wanted and applied for, he still turned them all down because he couldn't envision himself working and being successful and ended up dying not too long afterwards in a drive-by.

#2 Its a really fascinating look at the types of things that go on in recruiting and how some people end up at lesser programs (kind of like how he almost ended up at Pitt) when he had clearly better offers. Also a great reminder of how fragile the the dream school moniker can be; kids pick favorite schools for what are often silly reasons in retrospect.

UFM's record in rivalry games, against the spread, against top ten, and in bowls should be more than enough to vault him above anyone ahead of him, esp for his age. add in real life wednesday's, the charity work etc. and he is no.1 in my book.

also I think he still holds the distinction of being the only coach ever with more than 1 20+ winning streaks and he has 3.

Hopefully it is for the right reasons. It's almost always a mistake to delay serving the lord as best you can. Steve Young came to our congregation urging another athlete to go and even said he wished he had gone on his mission. Wouldn't trade mine for 10years in the NFL.

I think we need to stop worrying about Penn State. Afteralll, according to Buckshots, Minnesota is undefeated. So that would be the real threat.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

"He also engaged in personal activities on work property" that applies for like... hourly pay not salary or professional gigs. Once you graduate from hourly to salary your personal life and work cross all of the time because there is no more distinction of who owns what time.

That is like saying someone on salary can't take work home with them.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

your not thinking of it from UFM's perspective. Who cares about the media market.

1. he has to travel less to recruit

2. the recruiting pitch is easier since it is closer to home and not freeing cold

3. With the change in paying players the players will make way more cash barring any unforseen changes

4. its not his dream school like OSU, so if he loses to his rival he doesn't destroy the perfect record he cares the most about

5. Its a private school so no FOIA

Comment 03 Nov 2019

@dstac, agreed. I don't think he will come back to the b1g. I can reall yonly see him back in college for tennessee or USC. Ten now isn't great. but with a coach like UFM it could be pretty incredible.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

ahh you are right it was a different AD. My bad. I assumed since it was so recent.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

I think trying to maintain perfection at the school you love the most is stressful. I think having no ties to USC actually helps him. As far as him being AD... working a desk dealing with bureaucracies for an admin that didn't have his back sounds more like punishment than a good gig for him.

Comment 03 Nov 2019

that 247 report is literally based on a report which is based on a report which is based on an opinion piece and also contradicts everything else from "sources". Not a coincidence sources all say UFM and then they hire an AD from Ohio that he knows.
