I thought Dr James Andrews came up with a new procedure that enhanced the recovery time for high ankle sprains and either Tua or one of the Bama lineman did it late last year and played in like 2 weeks with no issues

Day is actually very reserved outside of football. Quiet friendly. He is seemingly always recruiting, he is always on the phone and engaged in those conversations.  He’s just a nice guy very different than Urban who seemed to be all business. I can see Day doing better recruiting and that is no slight to Urban because of how seems to relate to kids and their families. Day really had already become the lead recruiter on the most important kids last year

Not saying this actually happened but USC being a private school offers many opportunities to keep things out of the public eye. It would be possible to do through back channels if it were to happen.  Seems too soon but there will definitely be schools that try to get him.

There were a couple of people from OSU that went to ND a few years ago.  I wonder if this is a return of one of those.  Looks paywalled on the ND site.

I believe the franchise tag guarantees the player top 5 average salary at his position in the league.  It’s a hefty price for a one year deal for the team as well. Certainly the player is looking for more money up front and the years but it can play out exceptionally for the player if franchised multiple years.

I’ve met Urban a couple times and this is just spot on. Felt like he didn’t trust anyone and wasn’t very personable to people. Tress on the other hand would engage you before you could engage him. Tress has the uncanning ability to remember names after meeting someone just once before. 

This is isnt a knock on Urban. His job was to win games and clearly just how he thought best to do that.

Beals just isn’t the right guy.  I see why they did it but he is lazy on the recruiting trail. Until he is able to get the best kids in Ohio, at a minimum, Year’s like this are the best possible

Comment 19 May 2019

These posts crack me up. Every good oline player was recruited by someone else and Stud missed on every player he recruited. Pure comedy

Comment 16 May 2019

Good post. Beals did have #2 until football came calling. Honestly I’ve met Beals and I’ve witnessed his effort recruiting which made Bob Todd look like the Calipari of the diamond.  I would some it up as he expects the best kids to come just because they should. Unfortunately it’s well passed time for a change

Sawyer is a much better basketball player than I expected. He is going to be really good I think. Exceptional athleticism and body control.

why Bring facts into this at this point?  Maybe an insider will post this and then the perspective will change for some

Urban’s Approach was to recruit national first and when he came back to some of those kids it was just to late. Paris was urbans recruit but Studs fault cause he’s looking around?  Makes no sense.  Carmen wanted to go out of state. We got NPF instead. Not awful in the end.  Rumbler was UM from the start sorry if BG says differently 

Comment 17 Apr 2019

Just because Stud wasn’t the lead recruiter on the guys you listed doesn’t mean he did something wrong. Other coaches had relationships and Urban insisted on taking the lead in some recruitments regardless of position.  Additionally, the in state kids were all late offers that Urban was willing to take a risk on.

Really doesn’t matter what coach K or the NCAA want it’s an NBA rule. Neither of them get to like it they have to live with it. Kids can go to Europe if they don’t want to go the college route but very few have ever done it because the college game still gets them significantly more exposure. And likely just as mich money under the table
