I remember he and his family being interviewed in his home on the Saturday after Woody got fired.  He stated he would love to and wanted to come back to Ohio State and had OSU regala in the background.  Shortly thereafter the chum of Earl, Hugh Hindman, the AD at the time had the fix in for Earl.  The next day, Holtz was interviewed again at his office in Arkansas saying he had no interest in the OSU job.  I was so excited about getting the brilliant Holtz.  I had coached against him and knew he was a wizard, Earl not at all.  Sorry if this offends some but Holtz was playing chess and Earl was at the dominoes level. Good man Earl was but not in same ball park with Lou.

Totally agree on high school FB players but that goes back into at least the 70's in and around Chicago.  When I was in college coaching, it was like being in an apple orchard with each tree filled with the fruit.  I came from high school coaching in NE Ohio and at the time the 2 areas were very similar in numbers.  Awesome recruiting.  Illinois had no foothold...no loyalty in the area.  Wide open territory IMHO, especially if you liked home made sweet potato pie.  Catholic HS players were well coached and tough kids.  Loved going in there.  You just had to remember to get up early to get somewhere or you were going to sit in traffic from 7;30 until 10:00 AM.

Right now the forward looking depth on DL's quality seems like more of a concern than the OL.

When Moeller was head coach at scUM, he got a speeding ticket on the Ohio Tpk.  I was the prosecutor for that jurisdiction.  Had a great conversation,,,albeit one way,,,with his attorney about how traitors should not be allowed to use theee OHIO TPK. anyway.  I said set it for trial ...no reduction.  Moeller had to pay the full fine and costs.  One of my finest hours!!

Vaccine...vaccine...That will change things if it is effective..  Right now we are in the batter's box with no bat.  Gotta pray one of those money hungry drug companies with all of its multi-billion dollar, labs, equipment and scientists comes up with a solution soon...Those very bad people.

Thin at DT especially if someone gets hurt for any period of time.  Hamilton was a BIG UN and going to be missed.  Togai is so strong he makes up for that 20 to 30 lbs. difference in SEC type DTs like LSU's.  Don't know if Vincent has had time to make up some of the strength he would have gained without the injury even in his legs.

Choosing Bauserman to play over Braxton Miller.

Blaming fully the loss to MSU because we didn't give the ball to Zeke enough when he was still hooked up intravenously in the hospital on Thursday morning and Zeke blasting the staff in the press.  Foretelling of some of Zeke's "behavioral" problems later in life.
