+1 Quality work for sure.  I'd like to see us try to hold on ($$) to our brightest assistants longer though;  even an extra year or two (E.g. Herman) is often the difference for playoff/championship aspirations.  Staff turnover always looked like a thorn in Urban's side.  He seemed to rely on a pitch that went something like "come to my program for 2 years and I'll have you on your way to a big payday". My strategy would be to hire people who are (1)good at what they do and (2)aren't particularly concerned with job titles.  Maybe it's rare to find them but when you do... step up and pay them what they're worth for the sake of building continuity.

Ohio State only allocated 33% of their $2.8M recruiting budget towards football in 2018. That was 18th overall and 5th in the Big Ten in football recruiting expenses with less than $1M spent. 2nd best recruiting class.

The numbers are the numbers.  We can't deny the team has lacked discipline lately.

Also, maybe it's my bias creeping in but it really seems like a lot of flags having been coming out super late.  It's quite frustrating when you see a play live on TV and you know it's questionable but the refs are clearly being indecisive.  Haven't been getting any benefit of doubt lately

Besides Nick Bosa I don't think anyone really stood out on defense last year.  Couple players flashed at times but that's not what I'm talking about; it mostly looked like disarray.  

Werner had zero experience last year and Bill Davis didn't have any answers.  I am hoping that the new scheme and coaching makes a big difference.  I trust that as the season goes along, if a change needs to be made then it will be made.

You can require a report all you want.  Unless you're going to have your doctors come in and evaluate then it's pointless.  Belichik has had Brady listed on the injury report for many years straight lmao.
