I used to play cards w/ him a little when he would visit the lovely ladies on my dorm floor, haha. 6'6", built of granite even as a freshman, and a nice guy. Said he liked basketball better, but obviously saw eventually where his pro money would come from.
Hard to believe Steve Kerr hadn’t paid off his house already.
But seriously, awesome stuff!!
I agree that we are in danger of dropping and staying below the top two in the recruiting game, but I'm not sure that iMeyer deserves too much blame beyond hiring Beck (big mistake for sure, but that's one). What if Haskins just wasn't ready and would have led us to more than two losses? What if he had actually left all the playcalling to Tim Beck instead of stepping in when he did?
What specifically would you have done differently?
Btw, I see a glimmer of real writing talent in this post. You have a blog/published?
I'm assuming they'll be rooting for the Buckeyes.
Just waiting to see which side Ohio State fans will be on.
My advice, try not to spend much time thinking about what might happen if we lose. It's not worth the stress it creates. If it happens, it happens.
But it won't ;)
That particular Caddyshack reference will always get an upvote from me.

I don't know what I'll be having for breffis on Saturday morning, but I'm excited for my late lunch date!
Clemson and it’s not even close.
Wow, I had forgotten this, but it's true. The Texas teams we know were mostly in the Southwest Conference at that time.
I have no problem with him celebrating, but that landing looked a little rough. Would hate to see him get injured again on something like that.
Ha! Logged in to show my appreciation.

Texas's cupboard isn't so barren: 37 of 44 from last year's two-deep return, and we know they've always recruited well (until this year, which won't hurt much).

Not too relevant to OSU, but this also very interesting: http://www.footballstudyhall.com/2015/2/10/8007929/why-the-college-football-recruiting-class-rankings-are-flawed-metrics-talent-blue-chip
Good stuff, and I agree about the importance of the hire. Could be even longer than five years, really, if it doesn't work out. Surprised to see WVU in tier three, but I know how loyal their fanbase is, so imagine they have some cash.
Thx, makes sense to me, except that Wow, you really think that if the Purdue job opened up tomorrow, most coaches would prefer Purdue over us? Excellent program, don't get me wrong, but I'd think we have the edge in both recruiting and salary, assuming the coach had some cred coming in.
Wow, that list is full of surprises. Marquette!
Yeah, I suppose you could argue Mich St., Maryland, and possibly even Illinois and (gasp) Michigan. Bunch of Big East possibly, too, like Gtown, UConn, Nova, Syracuse.
Large bodies do create larger gravitational pull. Human tractor beams.
I knew Ford played college football (the school shall remain nameless) and Bush Sr. played baseball, but I had no idea Johnson was such a burner in his day.
Sure, but could you form one with CPL players who went to schools with equal or lower NBA profile than Illinois has now? Will be very hard to convince a top-flight CPL prospect to choose Illinois over Kansas at the moment, for instance.
He looks like a very good coach, so I don't doubt he'll be successful regardless. Just wondering if you happen to know where those kids ended up going to college.
