I've never heard of Louis Riddick but I like him and he clearly knows his stuff.
Tress inherited more talent, but I also remember there were many reports of team-cultural problems plaguing the program at the end of Cooper's tenure...does anybody remember these details?
Here's what Andy Geiger had to say about it: "sort of a capstone on what we have seen as a deteriorating climate within the football program.""Concern about discipline, competitiveness, academic pursuits, a whole series of things. I thought yesterday, unfortunately (Outback bowl loss) was an exhibit of all those things rolled into one," he said.
On his twitter in the past he has been loyal to Urban and OSU football. It seems his biggest problem is with Tom Herman and Ed Warriner. I don't think he would come out and hurt the program his grandfather once led, but who knows.
Is there any profession that self-inflates their worth more than journalists?
He's going to win the FCS version of the Heisman, whatever that's called. Good luck Kory!
Fromm still has 2 years to play as the firmly established starter. You still think that's the same situation as bringing in a good transfer to add depth and challenge for the position?
It has nothing to do with Haskins. They are different people.
My point was Fields isn't concerned with competing for the starting QB job. If he loses it, sure, he might leave after the season. But then we'd have a better player on the field.
I also need to add that Justin Fields didn't mind competing with Tate Martell, a highly touted QB, in the first place.
He's not going anywhere.
I see your point. But we need a transfer to get to Coach Day's preferred number of QB's (4). Miller hasn't even graduated high school yet, so whoever we bring in will be at least a year ahead of him in eligibility from the start.
Then, Miller will probably redshirt to learn the system and sit behind Fields. So he's already banking on 2 years of development. In that third year, if he is as good as advertised, he'll have plenty of time to win that job.
You don't want to waste a schollie on a kid who isn't any good. If Fields is declared ineligible, or if his skills don't translate well to the field, our season rests on 2 guys, Chugonov and Baldwin. Both sound like great guys and QBs, but they're both unproven at this level.
Take the talent if it's there.
Was just going to say that. He looks 30 years old in that header photo.
We definitely need to go back to giant shoulder pads and visors. They could make Screech look intimidating.
Who's up for hiring Jay Harbaugh just to really mess with them?
