Just curious... Who on OU's roster is from IMG?
Think you hit most of the key reasons for these two particular coaches having sour grapes.
1. Texas is so deep and talent rich with high school football talent. Coaches feel that if players are already willing to go elsewhere in highschool then it lessens their chances to keep a kid in state.
2. IMG isn't located in Texas. Let's ask Jim McElwain his thoughts and I guarantee you get a different response.
3. By taking this stance, you're essentially siding with Texas high school football coaches, which can't hurt when trying to build relationships with the coaching staffs. It's like Urban constantly stating how player's families should get more and more benefits with Travel, Stipends, Etc. Does nothing but help with his reputation in recruiting, while taking the opposite stance could be detrimental.
The fact that it occurred on the first day of the fair makes me lean towards there being some type of human error whether through installation or operations.
we have another Hooker in the fold
Hugh Freeze, is that you?
I'm sure he will.
Also Tress famously changed the code at the woody to 4114 after the loss to Florida
Watched the trailer... Still have no idea what it's about
While I don't agree with the rule, I really don't think it will have much of an impact in general outside of this year. Universities will still take advantage of having teams play on their campuses, they will just have it happen in September-November.
It just sucks from a timing perspective for this year. They couldn't just wait to implement it until 2018 to not throw the entire high school football landscape in a logistical mess?
As bad as Tim Beck was as a play caller, you could make the case that he was just as instrumental in recruiting Texas as Herman was during his tenure here.
This is probably the ammunition the NFL needs for a "short suspension"
Instead of claiming the suspension from the alleged "domestic incident" they will say the suspension is from multiple incidents of "conduct not in align with league standards"
I don't understand how there can be a "Short Suspension"
Either he did it, or he didn't.
If he did, then everyone agrees it should be at least a 4 game suspension. If he didn't, then he should get nothing. Where is the grey area in this situation that would justify a small game or two suspension?
Where do you draw the line with this though?
For example, if Ohio State sells a DVD of a game from 1987, do they have to compensate Spielman because he is in the video? Does a media outlet like Eleven Warriors now have to gain permission to use the image at the top of the article because technically it's "Profiting off of Spielman's likeness"
I don't have a legal background at all, but if the images are from his time at Ohio State, I don't see where he has a case. Heck even the middle school I work at requires parents to sign a consent form to release images. I imagine the University does the same thing.
