I’m not at all saying Day can’t recruit or OSU is done. What I am saying is that Urban was one of the greatest recruiters of all time. If he couldn’t get the theoretical “1” class then I have a hard time believing Day is gonna. To think that Day could go into Texas and pull out 3-4 of the top players is a pipe dream. Urban went national big time. He had the name to do it. Look at the kids who were OSU leans and then Urban retired, the whole game changed. Day is just not a proven recruiter as Meyer was. You have Saban,Swinney,Georgia, Fisher, and Texas Tom to compete with. Those guys love em or hate em can recruit their pants off. Day is not gonna win head to head against those guys. OSU or not. Those guys are can recruit. Will he pull one here and there. Yes. Not at the level of Meyer. Meyer was pulling 5* out of the backyard of these guys. Day ain’t got that clout. 

For the record I am in the camp of OSU was OSU before Meyer. Coach Tressel restores the program and turned over a well oil machine to Meyer. I do think that OSU will continue to be a monster.I do however think the talent is gonna decrease some with staying in Ohio more. I have a feeling more program guys will be there and top end quality will be down. I think it will be closer to Tressel with talent (which is pretty good) than Meyer.

Those who expect Day to recruit on the level of Meyer are gonna be let down. Meyer is one of the best recruiters the game has ever saw. While Day or his staff may not be a slouch, they ain’t Meyer. I think that lesser ranked safer Ohio kids will be targeted more. The national flavor will not be as such as when Meyer was at OSU. I know the Ohio purists will be happy about that. Sure Day will be able to get some national guys, however the days of contending for #1 class are gone. I might and hope I’m proven wrong, with a focus on the low hanging fruit locally it’s gonna be tough.That  said they will be top 10 every year and probably get around 5

Florida with a cold blooded killer as a coach happened. That Florida team was stacked with talent. It’s not like they were Boise state. Florida was just a better team. Plain and simple. Meyers offense was still new at the time. The defense was “sec” speed. Plain ol fashion butt whopping

Whatever the reason, OSU has more talent on the offensive side of the ball than 95% of teams.Yet the inability for them to run the ball is inexcusable, especially in short yardage. Either coach Meyer handcuffs o line coach or he can’t coach. When 3rd and 1 is about a guaranteed loss of down it’s gotten bad. We can talk about lack of running QBs until we are blue in the face. However OSU has the talent to line it up and smash u in the face. No misdirections, QB keeper, read options. Just line up hand ball off and go for three yards. Bama and Wisconsin has made a living out of it.

The knicks are a microcosm of today’s culture. Throw money at something. That will fix it. We don’t care where it comes from or how it’s spent. Just know that money will fix it

Internet won. People just want to like Burrow/Baldwin, also they don’t want to like Fields. It’s the same as Haskins and Tate/Baldwin. For whatever reason people were dead set on Tate being the man. I got into with someone on this board earlier. I said when Fields came here the job was his there was no competition. People wanted to say there was and mock me saying I could tell the future. Well kinda yeah. Baldwin wasn’t that good. Burrow was not that good. Statistically (here comes the leadership/coaching/espn/sec spin) he was one of the worst QB in the sec. Tate looks more and more overrated spoiled baby that probably won’t even win job at sorry Miami. Yet people here wanted him to start over Haskins.

The same as every year. National title. Some years are tempered more than others. But championship or bust

Comment 02 May 2019

I think Haskins is gonna be a great pro. Jones not sure, only watched him a few times. One thing I do know. Jones ain’t gonna put up big numbers at duke. It just ain’t gonna happen. It’s also hard to evaluate him when he plays with inferior talent. He is not gonna have time to process routes and coverage. I doubt his o line gives him that kind of protection. Also I can’t imagine his recievers are beating their man off of the line and getting open. Couple that with sup par talent at running back. If I recall correctly Dukes WR Corp either led or top 5 in nation in dropped passes. That is not gonna help anything out. As I said I think Haskins is going to be a good pro and can’t wait to watch him. I just think evaluating Jones is way beyond numbers and almost even film. He was playing over matched just about every game. I’m not saying he is gonna be better or worse than Haskins. I just think we are going to have to wait and see with him

I have never went through an apprenticeship. I am just good ol fashion labor. I made the choice that it wasn’t worth it for me. At 18 the rent was due.I do however contribute to my company. Which turned over around 200 million. While just unskilled labor I contributed greatly to this. As far as metal and physical stress we have plenty. I believe there has been four people that has died on the job and the countless number of people with missing digits. Factor in the toll of working seven days a week for numerous months at a time. Before April I had one scheduled day off. Add in the uncountable 12 hour days in extreme heat. With the uncertainty of working 12 hour days and the toll that takes on trying to find day care and being a husband and father the stress is real.I don’t say this lightly. It is a choice I have made. It is the same choice these young voting adults have as well. I appreciate the conversation. You brought a point without being a jerk. I hope I’m not coming off as smug or combative

just about every football player that doesn't go #1 says they are gonna make everyone who didn't draft them pay. They will also keep track of which teams didn't draft them. They may even choose a number to represent the number of teams. Talk is cheap.Josh Rosen said it last year(jury still out on that one). Haskins needs to do whatever everyone else who is starting a new job needs to do. Shut Up, pay attention, keep your mouth shut and ears open. Get acclimated to the pro life and go try and be the best football player you can be. The media and interviews or bumping your gums are not gonna help you learn the playbook, read the defense, or build chemistry with your team mates. I think if Haskins keeps low and grinds he has a phenomenal chance in front of him.He has all the talent in the world, now can he put the mental part with it? This is key with all players not just him.FWIW I'm gonna draft him in my dynasty league.

Why isn’t Bosa an everydown player. In a pass happy league he is perfect for today’s game. He plays the run well. He might over pursue to get to QB but what elite pass rusher doesn’t. His production was off the charts. Had he stayed healthy at OSU I think he goes to NY and Heisman ceremonies. Won’t win it but invite. He Destroyed it in three games. Was Ndominic Sue level.

NFL teams do not agree with that statement.

Comment 27 Apr 2019

T Lawrence would have been the first pick in the draft this year. Did you watch the title game. He played lights out. D line was outstanding but Kelly Bryant wasn’t gonna do that. Dabo gave him a chance and he just didn’t perform the way Dabo thought he should. That is called coaching and it’s why Dabo is just getting started in winning titles.
