I think the MAC schools and other Mid-Majors will be the "minor leagues" for the blue blood programs. 2 and 3 star recruits can go to the small school and if they develop, they can then transfer to a big program. Which will actually give more opportunity to the upcoming 2 and 3 star recruits.
He's one of the guys that has to play good
He's one of the guys who has to play well. But we didn't hire Day for his grammar. As long as he can recruit and coach them up, I'm fine with his grammar. Let's hope this is a June to remember!
Urban Meyer was known as a master motivator.
If that is the case, how in the world do we get beat by 30??? I think Urban Meyer was GREAT, maybe the GOAT, at motivating the team in big games against a favored opponent. I think history shows that our performances as a heavy favorite were lackluster.
I’m ready to have it over with and just live a regular person’s life.
If he heeds the advice of Deion Sanders, he'll never have a regular person's life. Best of luck to Julian at OSU and beyond!
“We have to do our do diligence,” Chris told 247Sports about the other three schools.
or due diligence... Do, due, dew, or do-be-do-be-do, whatever works. Just pick the Buckeyes! ;-)
Don't Tweet at teens? You mean like this:
Very tacky comment... Unlike popular belief, we don't need our 5 to get out of the hood. We are VERY financially secure. Check the resume— Chris Milton (@fatherofballers) June 3, 2019
You should probably include don't tweet about teens (or their families).
as the university found itself looking for head football coach for the first time in 29 years
I am hoping this sentence is applicable again in 30 years.
I watched a little bit of the game last night and I thought I heard the announcer say that Bullis's opponent had 20 players on their roster with D1 scholarship offers.
Of the 19 players mentioned, I wonder how many are future NFL'ers? I might be a little too bullish, but I think we're going to be just fine. The 6th man on the o-line will still have a chance to latch onto an NFL roster.
I have not paid attention to his assistant coaches. I'm sure he'll be fine if he hires experienced assistant coaches with deep recruiting roots.
The potential with JK is enormous. Imagine a better run blocking line combined with the threat the the QB run, JK will find himself in space 1 on 1 with the LB. JK wins that match up 8 out of 10 times.
Credit Day for forgoing the status quo after last year's defensive trainwreck but there's still a ton of pressure of the new head coach
This goes without saying. We're in the honeymoon period with Day. A different reality will sink in quickly if the defense doesn't dramatically improve.
Princeton better win more than 3 games this year!
Is Oden officially off the basketball staff?
I think the offensive staff will be in lock step with each other. My fear, and also biggest opportunity, is melding the defensive staff into a cohesive unit. The coaching pedigree is there, hopefully they're able to work together to deliver the goods on Saturday's this fall.
while the defensive prospects appear to be in wait-and-see mode.
IF our newly minted defensive coaches can do anything with recruiting and development, we'll be rolling for years to come.
Yes, Joey B can always come back to Columbus in spring. He just couldn't afford to stay in fall.
Hey Ramzy, always love your work. Did you mean Nicky B?
The best news of the day! Welcome Gunner!
Thanks for the analysis. I took a look at the top 100 players on 247 sports and I feel a lot better about our standing.
Taylor, in your opinion which school carries the most recruiting clout these days? It seems like Alabama has been passed by a couple of programs recently.
Hey BuckeyeEddie27, it is always NC or bust around these parts... (see 11W comments from every Sunday morning in the Fall of 2018)
Get me to August 31st with our D-Line coach still employed by the university, that's all I ask.
That PSU program has a stink to it that their former coaches just can't shake. I hope this doesn't spiral out of control and cost LJSr his job. Aside from the X's and O's, he is a great mentor for the kids on the team.
For all of the hullaballoo about the quarterback transfers and lack of depth now in the QB room, I am most concerned about recruiting. The above list is impressive, if that is how it turns out, so my concern may be unfounded. However it seems to me that the nightly "Hurry Up" has been highlighting lower rated recruits as of late and verbal commitments of our "targets" to places other than here.
Or the wishbone...
