So much for the tune up...
My take on Justin after watching the show.
Pros: (1) When his team needed him, he had no issues putting the team on his back. (2) I liked that he talked trash to the other players and never seemed intimidated. (3) His athleticism was awesome. (4) He seems like he has a great family and is extremely grounded.
Cons: (1) He seemed a little disrespectful to his coach at times. I wouldn’t try that with coach Mick! (2) He had a bad case of the fumbles at times.
With all that being said, can’t wait to see him in the scarlet and gray! Go bucks!
He can still play in the spring game (and practice through the spring), even if his transfer doesn’t go through for a while. He just wouldn’t be able to play in games in the fall or receive travel expenses from the school.
Urban was referring to the period where he went 1-3 (loss to MSU, Clemson, & VT) when he had to start to micromanage. So, it’s Fickell and Herman’s fault! We should fire those gu...never mind.
Birm’s take is an interesting one...
Lettermen Row can confirm that Ohio State has reached out to and talked with Washington about a job on the Buckeyes coaching staff and there appears to be mutual interest.
Washington was waiting to see what happened on the Michigan staff before making a final decision, but much of that speculation centered on whether or not Don Brown returned with the Wolverines and wasn’t directly related to Mattison.
It will not be long until a decision is made as both sides are anxiously awaiting Washington’s choice.
I hope that’s the truth!
My thought is this...OSU offered with a very strong chance it’s already unofficially agreed upon. Very rarely are offers made without already working out the deals with coaches in advance. Also, for OSU to offer and a Washington to stay isn’t the best look for Day.
I personally think it’s all but done!
To be fair, we also had a player whose dad was quite the helicopter parent and made many decisions for his son. That player ran for over 200 yards against Bama and helped us win a NC!
Well, if they were talking directly to Fields, they would be violating NCAA rules. He didn’t have transfer rights at that point, so other schools cannot contact him. They were probably talking, but through a mediator (a certain QB coach).
For example, my daughter’s club soccer coach coresponds with college coaches for her in the dead recruiting periods. Technically, they are not talking to my daughter, but they are talking to my daughter.
Bum juice Mr Mathis!
I would not call one of them a bad drop. He was doing a comeback route (very fast) to the ball and the QB gunned it just above his head. That’s a very tough catch.
I think that Haskins, Fields, and Meyer all got tickets at Ticketmaster and it was nothing more than a coincidence they were sitting by each other.
I’m pretty sure he was referring to Clemson players sticking fingers up our players buttholes the last time we played (or tried to play) them.
Bevo almost ended UGA before the game. That almost got real!
Ok cool. Hook ‘em
I feel like coach Stud gets too much criticism. OL play was so much better when we got away from the RPO scheme. Our OL was lights out the last three games!
I felt the same way. His smile after the Purdue game was the only joy I felt that night.
He steals laptops as well?!?
Yea! It’s a troll job from an MSU homer, but it’s still awesome.
In 2007, I was deployed to Niger Africa. I convinced the embassy I had to use their communications office to submit an official government report (which I did end up submitting after the game), but also found a radio where I could listen to the Buckeye game.
Mark is a good man and I believe he sees the bigger picture. Just take a look at some the charity work he and his wife have done. They are an amazing family and he sees so much more to life than football. I wish him the best!
