I live in Tulsa OK. I can tell you one thing for sure..... The players and coaches in this area stood up and took notice when Coach Meyer showed up to recruit Proctor from Owasso (more or less a suburb of Tulsa). Gundy (From Okie State) was at the school at the same time and even he admitted he was treated like a second class citizen when he was at the school at the same time. Ryan Day does NOT command that type of recruiting presence! These kids (right ,wrong or indifferent) and their parents and HS coaches rolled out the red carpet for Urban Freakin Meyer (as one of the coaches stated. If Coach Meyer walks away from this program we will hurt from a recruiting standpoint. While no one is bigger than tOSU brand it will take winning at the highest level and sending kids to the No Fun League before any coach will be able to recruit like Meyer!
Ryan Day or any other coach will do OK with the talent that has been assembled but don't make the mistake that it will continue to roll on without some down turns! I just wished that all of this fan base that talks about Lincoln Riley as "the example" and Day an just take over and not miss a beat would just shut up! Riley is in the fight of his life on the recruiting front and was successful with Stoops recruits. Another 2 years and you will see OU fall off of the national scene! We are watching it happen as we speak!
Head Coaches like Coach Meyer are generational and don't come around that often! Coach if you are reading this Please, Please return for another year or five. You are really close to this year and we love you!
