Lol I just saw an article with the headline “Redskins need to hire Ron Rivera before he comes to his senses”
I experienced the same thing. Click on it again. That worked for me
^^^This right here.^^^
It's really that simple. It ain't about, "It may cost him millions," "What does he see in Utah?" "If you wanna compete for championships..." "Commit to the university, not a position coach."
We praise our coaches for "killing it on the recruiting trail," and then dismiss the very importance of that coach's influence on an impressionable teenage athlete when said teenager decides not to come to our team when the coach--who by some accounts--was just telling recruits he wasn't going anywhere just a few days before. I get why he left, of course; I would probably do the same, but that reasoning is not going to resonate with every 17-18 year old out there. If this were a 3* developmental kid (ahem...stars don't matter), most wouldn't bat an eye. But because he's a borderline 5*, #4 cornerback in the nation, top defensive commit in the class, yada, yada, yada, then all the cliches are in play.
Birm said recruiting is all about C.A.R. (Comfort And Relationships). I say let the kid jump in the C.A.R. and drive to OSU, or Utah, or wherever his free will and opportunity will allow him to go, and let's not analyze and/or scrutinize that decision. After all, most won't give a damn about it in a few months anyway...
No DV from me
Definitely one from me though.
If I'm right, they're asked for a "commitment" of two years by the HC, but I think they only sign year-to-year contracts.
OSU: Buckeye Talk, Eleven Dubcast, Tim May, Buckeye Weekly (Stay away from Sloopcast. Those two are not built for voice media. They sound like some ham radio amateurs. They butcher players' and recruits' names regularly; they're unbearable. They're OK on Twitter, but on a podcast, stay away...)
Other than Buckeyes:
Mike Valenti Show (if you wanna hear an MSU alum roast Michigan, MSU and Detroit Lions). Now on iTunes, his pods are broken into 8-15 min segments from his radio show. Definitely a good listen when any of those teams is losing.
Spartan Beat (with Rico Beard): A little long to listen about a team other than yours.
The Wolverine.com Podcast: Only when Doug Skene is on with Chris Balas. Balas sucks, but Skene is an intelligent voice worthy of a listen or two.
Non-sports: The Re-Watchables: Kind of nerdy and analytic, but entertaining when you come across an episode where they rewatch a movie or TV show that you liked.
Drink Champs: Skip it you're not a fan of hip hop. Otherwise, N.O.R.E. makes for an entertaining and most times hilarious host.
I like it
When Pryor watches J.K. Dobbins and Master Teague III thrive off each other and showcase their ability to successfully coexist in the same backfield

Best post I've ever read.
Here is the official denial
Yeah, but unofficially tho...

Wow...what a pleasant surprise!
I don't comment as much as before either, but it's good to see you back, Phi. I always enjoyed your pleasant demeanor and insight. Here's hoping all has been well with you and yours.
