Unless Kraft (an elderly widow) was directly involved or had knowledge of human trafficking, then I don’t care if he gets off for solicitation. Seriously? Are we really mad he’s not getting life for solicitation.
I’m all for it, anything that helps my dream scenario of Haskins somehow ending up in NO is music to my ears...lol...
Well this sucks for Haskins. I almost want him to fall so he can avoid that dumpster fire in NY.
I read the article after responding to the comment lol by then it was too late lmao
Expectations shouldn’t just be based on talent alone. We have a first year coach, with a first year starter at QB, an entirely new WR Corp, & an entirely new defensive staff tasked with essentially rebuilding the D. Clemson & Bama don’t have those issues & talent doesn’t override them either.
Woody’s success speaks to his overall greatness which is irrefutable, not to his philosophies as a coach. My dad played for Woody. I’ve had the privilege to sit in a room with Archie, Pete, Al (Sr.) & other alumni as they reminisced about the man. Woody wasn’t an innovator, he was going to build you up to be so damn great individually & as a team that innovation was irrelevant. You could know what he was going to do & it wasn’t going to matter. Urban is more of an innovator, who was constantly trying to mesh his philosophies with momentum of the sport. While Woody sure as hell wasnt a lamen & Urban was renown for his ability to develop talent, objectively speaking they weren’t equals in these regards.
JT was never a burner, he excelled because of his toughness & decision making in regards to the Option.
Depends on the context. Urban is the greater coach when it comes to the football aspect of the job, Woody is an icon & a builder of men. Happy to call them both Buckeyes.
You don’t think OSU’s stance in this situation has anything to do with that incident especially given how they overlooked this the last two years? Make no mistake the university has always been a stickler when it comes to the brand, but expect their intensity to be at a very high level for a while.
Whether you agree with his protest or not, I think it was rather obvious that collusion occurred on some level.
He was told “a” coach said that, he never mentioned who & I my original statement stands. I don’t see Urban doing that for multiple reasons.
1.) As Cardale also mentioned, JT was Urban’s guy & Urban never had much faith in Cardale for good reason.
2.) Self preservation. It’s bad look & any leak of that info would be a recruiting nightmare.
3.) Urban’s entire recruiting pitch heavily centers apund what his players do at the next level.
What? Dabo & Saban are the exceptions not the standard. Urban’s entire career is sustained success.
Every great coach has extracurricular crap going on around them, it’s impossible to avoid. You just have to navigate it & Urban didn’t a pretty damn good job at doing that.
The defense imploded on various levels. Schiano’s stubbornness, Grinch & Johnson not getting along, Davis’s Inability to reach his corp, the line was inconsistent & lost its best player early.
I’m not seeing the logic here. Meyer who never had a season under 11 wins here isn’t a great “sustainer”?
Jadon Haslewood, he committed to Oklahoma (flipped from Georgia). It’s really a toss-up for see both shine in the AA game. Wilson being hurt a portion of the season hurt his ranking.
That makes no sense. Cardale’s success at the next level is a bonus for Urban & OSU’s reputation. There is no reason for him to sabotage that.
He & Tate fell out big, that was actually a key reason why he decommitted.
Lock it up that #1 spot & continue the tradition.
Given that you don’t know any details of the situation, how could you possibly speak on it?
It’s never been stated what exactly the issue was, so let’s tone it down there bud...
So what. She’s made it clear she wants him to be done, he’s made it clear he didn’t want to retire. If he’s able to realistically pursue his passion again, good for him. I don’t see it happening, but if it does I wish him well.
Maybe, maybe not. Jones has been with the program for 4 years, Davis was only his coach for two...
He’s not lying. He did stubbornly plan to coach, this also wasnt a rushed decision in that he had been talking over the possibility of walking away for bordering on 3 years with his family & most of his friends pushing him to walk away. He could have his first lecture written & then this offer came. Life isn’t black & white my friend.
He didn’t & never did “want” to walk away, which is why he stayed on & took a suspension that brought with it an aura of guilt & only furthered to forever tarnish a legacy he cares greatly about.
