Can’t fault him for doing his due diligence after the coaching change. At the end of the day he has to make the best decision for HIM. Im sure this will be a fairly common occurrence for our current commits and most will stay, but some will choose to go elsewhere. That’s the nature of the beast with recruiting.
Wow i had no idea Hoke was even coaching anywhere.
Has anyone here been fortunate enough to attend this game? it's definitely a bucket list item for me, just hope i get the chance to attend it some day.
Found my pic, but man i could stand to lose a few lb's after seeing that! haha
I don;t think Schiano leaves and i want him to stay. For one, the defense didn't look good on a consistent basis and i think that may turn a few schools away from hiring him. Secondly, after what happened with Tennessee last year, i think that may have scared some other away as well. It's sad because he really is a hell of a coach. I think if he were to leave, it would need to be a NFL DC job. If he stays, i think it will only help Ryan Day having someone a few feet away who has been through it all
The Defense will improve and i would love to see our DB's getting back to the level that we've been accustomed to over the years. This style where the corners aren't watching the ball will need to stop.
Nice! Thank you very much for that info! i really appreciate it!
You should hear this guy, every season he is convinced they are going to do well. After a while i started feeling bad for him, but some people are just a glutton for punishment.
OU/Texas is a Noon game, right? The plus side to that is we'll know before kickoff exactly what we need to do. hopefully that game is close, i think if OU goes out and blows the doors off Ol' Texas Tom, it'll be tough passing them for the 4th spot.
That could be a great fit for Mr Day!
At this point, if any coaches leave i'm sure Urban has a list of people he'd call. On the defensive side of the ball, as much as folks want Billy Davis gone, i dont see anyone hiring him. Schiano is probably due an opportunity to be a head coach somewhere and i feel like Rutgers will be giving him a call. if that happens, i wouldn't mind seeing Chris Ash come back. Ryan Day will no doubt get quite a few calls and that will be a huge loss whenever he moves on. Hartline, i'm sure, has to be named the permanent WR coach after the season and guys like Tony Alford, Stud, Grinch will all get looks. LJ is here to stay, so that;s great news for us.
I think he'll end up at a MAC school. I have no clue what their situation is, but Miami OH isn't too far from Lexington so that might be a good spot for him. if not, you still have Ohio U, Akron and Kent that are all fairly close.
In that scenario, we are playing in the Rose Bowl versus Washington. I can’t see the committee bouncing Bama if their one loss os a conference championship. Either way, beat NW and let the chips fall as they may.
I work with this jerk who is a huge Xich fan and follows recruiting more than he probably works. He’s pretty connected to the school too, but there’s a growing sense up there that Harrison is a done deal. It was also part of the reason two players were pretty much dropped so that Harrison and another defensive end or LB had spots. Again, this is what he said so obviously it could be wrong but the momentum was certainly siding with the bad guys as of last week.
well, the unfortunate news is that it seems that Zach Harrison is still heading up north, so they will certainly have a talented player to replace Gary. That defense will lose Gary, Winovich and most likely Bush and one of their corners (maybe both?) but i'm sure they have some talented underclassmen to replace those guys.
Gary seemed to have an bit of an underwhelming career compared to all the hype his commitment brought to TTUN, but in fairness he was injured and probably double-teamed by opposing OL. With that beign said, i'm not sad to see him head for the league. I'm sure he'll have a monster combine and maybe get himself into the top 10?
I’ve been to two games so far and even though we are 1-1 in those games, both trips were incredibly fun. The stadium is really nice and the atmosphere is so much fun. Trying to get out there again, but need prices to come down a bit first. Make sure you give yourself time to see as much as you can around the stadium, they really put on a good show for all the pre-game festivities
To be honest, I don't it's that big of a deal. Yes it provides a little bulletin board material to get you fired up, but when you are playing your biggest rival in the final game of the regular season with a Big Ten Championship and possibly a playoff berth at stake, you shouldn't need something like this to get you fired up.
As much as i want an elite player like Zach wearing Scarlet and Gray, he has to do what's best for himself. If that means heading up North, then you just wish him the best and trust that this staff will do everything in their power to bring in a suitable replacement. It certainly hurts losing someone who grew up so close to campus, but you can't win every recruiting battle and sometimes another school just feels like a better fit.
Gary will play against the Buckeyes. This has been the best season ttun has had in a long time, so if they have a chance to beat us and get to the B1G Ten Championship game and a playoff berth, you bet your ass that dude is going to play. Bosa is earmarked for the #1 pick unless OAK/NYG get that pick and take a QB. Either way he is top 3 and had little to gain and a ton to lose by playing this year so you can't fault him one bit for sitting the rest of the season out. Gary had some room to make up to get into the upper half of the first round and a good stretch run should seal that for him. The kid is a beast and i would be thrilled if he decided to skip that game. maybe we can convince Winovich to sit out too?? lol
My Initial thought was Orlando Pace or Malcolm Jenkins, but now that I think about this a little I’d simply take Billy Price. Put him at C, move Jordan out to G and I think the OL instantly improves our running game. We need a guy in there who will fire up the rest of the O-line
If I’m a USC booster or avid fan, I’m expecting them to back the Brinks truck up for Lincoln Riley. You need a guy who will put points up on the scoreboard and get that showtime vibe that other teams in LA have. Anything short of a big name coach would be a disappointment.
For the record, I can’t see any way Riley would take the SC job unless they offered him a massive salary. He’s got it pretty good in Norman and I can’t see him leaving anytime soon. I would really like to see him coach my Cleveland Browns, but that’s another topic for another day.
