So a few things,

It’s a football field, most schools have practice fields and even then! A grass field isn’t going to get run down from extra passes or 7 on 7 at 70 degrees.

Matthew Baldwin is a special case, he was always talented but comes from a D1 QB Lab.  

Amother point was costs.  What costs? Schools have the field, coaches are paid to coach already (we don’t even pay ours in Canada) and kids own cleats, etc. 

Its all a partnership with coaches, if a kid is a good sprinter it’s no biggie to miss a few practices for track or a baseball kid miss a few as well.  I’m all for multi-sport athletes, the thing with spring football is it makes the kids better and makes the game safer as with declining football enrolments, schools are putting out kids with less experience with each passing year into games.

Exactly my point, we had like 20-25 practices outside and it made a difference.

I know it’s Canada and all but my hometown Ottawa has had 4-5 kids brought in the last 4 years to visit Columbus, 2-3 with offered, who’ve been top 300 and spring football plays a big role.  Even in Quebec where we play Americans rules (4 downs/no 1 yard rule) we send about 15 kids a year to D1 and you have to think that with Ohio having 7 D1 schools instate many being non-p5 inflates how many D1 kids are actually instate.  

Ohio needs spring football.

Something everyone here seems to be missing, he’s learned under Saban for 3 years.  His prior experience was under Ron Zook, he has decent offensive talent to work with and the area will provide enough of a base he won’t have to go far for talent.  I think Maryland’s best will be 8-4, 9-3 at best, sad thing is it’ll be with a few players we would’ve wanted.

His only chance at a P5 Job would be in the south so no surprise here.

Lets not forget that Wynt started over White for several games this season.  There's been examples over several seasons of younger sometimes freshman players only getting playing time after subplanting the older player by injury only.  Since 2012 there's a head-scratching example.
