I compare Williams with the likes of Boom Herron in terms of his recruiting profile/ranking coming out. We all know how that worked out.

Williams is the type of kid that leaves Ohio for a second-tier school and fans wonder how the staff overlooked him. This time, the cards fell in a way where they grabbed up in-state talent. Get him in the S&C program and see what he becomes. Boom!

I cannot imagine a franchise doing a more lousy job handling a rookie QB. There is no excusing the way and timing of Dwayne’s first real action. This is why teams like the Redskins continue to suck. Don’t get me wrong, Haskins has a big learning curve, but he deserves better than what they did Sunday.

Agreed. Gibbs film doesn't look a 3* prospect. Very Dobbins-esque (high school film and freshman year) IMHO. 

I totally get the quick offer and think the staff will approach this like they did Crowley. They'll want to get him on campus ASAP, and try to woo him away from GT before any of the southern powers take notice. He's a diamond in the rough.

Good first game in the Day era. 

The game plan definitely went “vanilla’ after the hot start. Stuck with a basic zone on D, kept Fields from running on O, and even brought in backups. All in all, I like that. Stay healthy and keep the full playbook close to vest until next week. The Bucks will need it. Plus, it keeps the team hungry this week.

Actually, I think he handled a tough question well (watch the presser). He's been in the business long enough to know that you can make drastic changes without bad-mouthing those who have gone before you. Everyone in BuckeyeNation and around the country knows how bad the D was last year, and Mattison does nothing except look like a classless clown to pick it apart in front of the cameras. I'm glad he didn't go all Will Muschamp today.

I'm not sure Trayanum is a future starter at RB (he's a LB). He knows OSU doesn't ultimately see him there either, which is why is picked ASU. 

That may change due to need. We shall see.

Ummm...he was a redshirt senior. 

Comment 27 Apr 2019

Agreed.

Still, his health at tOSU has been a roller coaster ride. How many practices did he miss? Have to believe that was the defining factor. 

Comment 23 Apr 2019

Bill Greene pegged him to OSU the moment Baldwin entered the portal. Said he had a feeling he would want to come home after not winning the job at UK.

I would like the move for both sides. 

Comment 07 Jan 2019

Because he understands leadership and what he needs RIGHT now. 

Rather than gambling on all young, unproven coaches...he's gone and grabbed someone who is an elite recruiter and has been successful everywhere he's been. He can help transition the Buckeyes D back to basics while providing some experience that Day needs in relationships and scheme from his 50 years of coaching experience.

More young guys would be successful if they didn't worship youth and appreciated those who have life experience. 

Comment 07 Jan 2019

The simplicity of Mattison's scheme belies its effectiveness. Mattison was able to take largely the same defensive unit that was the primary cause of Rodriguez's demise and quickly turn them into one the Big Ten's best. He did so by ensuring that his defenders are fundamentally sound through taking proper angles and form tackling.

I'd say OSU is going to be in good hands.

Yes, so right. 

LJ hasn't landed any massive recruits of late with the negative recruiting. 

Comment 07 Jan 2019

Mattison is an ELITE recruiter and is a very good DC. 

Also - as someone who took over leadership at a young age...I understand the value of having seasoned vets around you. Mattison will provide stability for Day...and also will recruit Ohio very well. He's got great connections in the state. 

Comment 07 Jan 2019

Also - the Michigan fans and boards are mostly upset they're losing him. 

That should tell you something. 

Comment 07 Jan 2019

I like this move from Day, and I am not sure what all the anger is about. Day is a young coach and is already surrounding himself with youthful coaches. Having some age, experience and wisdom around him at this stage in his career (like that of Mattison) is important too.

Saban is turning 68 this year by the way and no one is complaining.
