You are 100% correct, and given that the sport of football is one of the most physical sports in the world, it is not "hating" to say someone who carries an extra 50 lbs. of bad weight probably will struggle at the highest levels of D1 football.
Bill Greene over at 247 has heard rumblings that the staff has already made it clear that they are watching him very closely, and that at this point it would not be a surprise if there was a mutual discussion and understanding that it would be best if he looked around. Not hating on the kid, but he's simply too heavy and too raw to likely ever see playing time at Ohio State given how Ohio State recruits. Compartively, Greene said Dawand Jones was a project recruit but since he was a multi-sport athlete and moved really well for his size, it was worthy of a take. Trey, on the other hand, is just trending the wrong direction.
And if he reads my comment, which I doubt, I would say look kid - I was too short and scrawny to play for Ohio State, and it wasn't personal. It is what it is.
JT really was short.
Not. Sorry UM.
I'm all for recruiting threads, hell, I post them about high profile crystal ball picks, but considering this guy won't be considering a change in his decision until at least November, this thread may be just a rehash of all the things that have been talked about in the Hurry Up. There won't be many updates at all until after his OV to the OSU/PSU game.
I think he'd have to go 7-5 for it to be seriously considered. For now, he's been one game away multiple years from a Big Ten Championship and a playoff spot, and he's been consistently landing top 10 classes. In all reality, Michigan is a tier 2 job right now, and I think Michigan brass knows they aren't landing someone better than Harbaugh.
For what it's worth, I think Harbaugh bolts before he'd actually have a chance to get fired.
Heed the young man's wisdom, Bijan.
Hmm. Wonder how he explains away the sister saying he was hacked? Unless that was all photoshopped too?
Welp. It was fun fodder regardless.
It would literally be the fastest account recovery in the history of Twitter. Apparently the Tweet was up for like 60 seconds.
Exactly. I'm sure Shea was just like, "here you go friend who's drunk on White Claws on a Sunday afternoon - go ahead and Tweet on my phone. I'm sure everything will be fine."
Wouldn't it be the most delicious thing?
That's certainly, exactly what I would say if I did something stupid like that...but why was the Tweet deleted within a minute of being posted? If he was hacked, I think it's pretty unlikely he recovered his account and deleted his Tweet that quickly.
Really depends how much he enjoys the mentoring aspect of college football. There is a value there, and fulfillment to be had in helping shape young men. I can imagine the satisfaction in recruiting, guiding, and sending a young man off to the NFL or a great job is very attractive for certain types of people.
Urban absolutely adored the mentorship aspect of his job later in his career, and was never a threat to leave for the NFL. Same goes for Tressel, who I think liked teaching leadership more than he liked x's and o's. In my opinion, this is why both of those men immediately moved into administration roles at their respective universities. That said, the jury is still out on Urban to some degree, and we'll see just how much winning meant to him vs. the development of his men. If he misses the energy of winning too much, he could possibly roam the sidelines again (I don't see it, personally).
If Day is purely about football at the highest level, he'll probably want to win a championship in college (cross that off), and then aspire to win one in the league. It doesn't exactly seem like he's wired to be a "stone cold killer" in that way, so we'll see. With that said, enjoying recruiting is a major part of the game - and some do, some don't.
My guess? He's here 5 years, wins a national championship, and then looks at his options. He does seem like wants to build roots some where (has young kids), so I think it would have to be a really attractive opportunity to consider it. Let's all remember: he could have easily gone and been an OC this year in the NFL and then parlayed that into a HC job in the NFL. Didn't need to dig-in at Ohio State, as he had plenty of opportunities.
It'll likely be top 5, but not top 3. It's mathematically impossible to beat Clemson or Alabama's class right now (presuming no decommits), but spots 3-5 will have a lot to do with how the season plays out.
I'd like to say I'm a well adjusted fan, but I follow recruiting pretty closely, and that gets pretty weird, pretty quick.
Them's fightin' words.
A deja vu is a glitch in the Matrix. It means they changed something.
Oh I'm all aboard brother.
Ok, I just went over there. It is well-covered over in the 2020 - sorry about that guys...usually I'm on it.
My bad guys, I didn't check that 2020 Crootin' Thread for this, that's on me. If Mods want to delete, go right ahead.
You continue to outdo yourself Barf. Could you put a football in Day's hands? That would be fun.
