He was a decoy
I prefer proven coaches, not exclusively great players with no coaching experience. Hartline is not the norm. Let's enjoy how rare it is to have hire a first time coach who ends up being one of the best in the biz.
Only someone on a high horse would state their opinion as fact.

I believe he thought you meant reclassifying class, not position. Most reclassification talk in recruiting seems to be about class.
Soooooo... nothing will come of it.
Our society glorifies those who are good at recess much more than those who are good at class.
I ubered for a little while a few years back and drove around 5 or 6 Buckeyes, Arnett, Baker, Webb, etc. I fanboyed out to all of them and they were all so nice answered all my questions, often complementing me for my knowledge and not asking the same questions they always get asked. They all posed for a selfie with me when we got to their destination. When I drove Hawkins to the Woody one day I asked him how is was to a buckeye or some generic opening question. He sighed and talked about how hard it was. How he never thought it would be so hard. How his whole life is Football. How he dreaded working out and watching film on his own time and all the expectations of him to do so much on "his time." I felt so bad for him, but also knew then that he was going to transfer. About a year later, after not seeing him on the field at all, he transferred. It was a good reminder that it takes a truly rare rare bread to be able to emerse themselves that deeply into something in order to truly get the best out of yourself.
That's what it sounds like to me.
The coaches don't have a single obligation to any of you for an explanation. He signed with VA. That should tell you everything you need to know.
You remember incorrectly, Troy was a solid 4 star.
Sorry to be that guy, but it's a pet peeve of mine when people use meaningless, thoughtless sayings like "no nonsense." Like our previous coach was all about nonsense. He'd always goof off and fart in his hand and put it in his players faces. Thank goodness we have a no nonsense coaching LB's now.
Wrong on in a few ways
Hey hasn't had any class yet, why would he start now?
Assistant to the Head Coach
Why don't we watch Urban fail before we tell him what's best for him. At this point, he's got the track record to have faith. If you told buckeye fans that this transition had a 90% chance of succeeding, most would take it. Urban seems to average making the correct decision 9 out of 10 times. For every mistake he makes in return he makes 9 excellent decisions. That's how you become one of the best to ever do it. If someone whose batting .900 wants to help, give him the rope.
Were any of the previous teachers generally considered one of the best 2 teachers in the entire country and maybe one of the 10 best to ever do it?
Well, you've always known more than Urban, so I trust you over what Urban thinks is best.
Mine was meant for fun, I realize now that it came off dickish. There space was on the wrong side of the comma. Now I see it is fixed. I just loved the irony of saying you fixed it for him, but it was still incorrect. FWIW, the reaction from you I was expecting was something along the lines of "Haha, oops, that's funny, lol." Again, my bad.
Sorry to be this guy but you didn't fix it for him. You added a comma, but didn't place it properly... then you mistakenly used ";" on "it's" on your response.
Yeah! Sink or Swim rookie! Ridiculous take.
Ryan Day is getting his first head coach job at the same age Urban for his first coaching gig at BG. He's gonna need as many mentors around as he can to bounce ideas around. He's gonna come across a number of things his first year that he's never even thought about before. Urban was always seeking advice from Earl Bruce and other older coaches.
This comment is dumb for numerous reasons. It sure as hell isn't cute or humorous.
You don't like how Alvarez turn WI from a mediocre program to a good program, then became AD and kept that program rolling to even higher heights. I would think Alvarez would be an example of what we'd want. Someone who's got his finger print on the football program and it succeeds even more.
