My son has schizophrenia (Sz) along with both depression and anxiety.  Dealing with just one can be a challenge let alone varying degrees of all three. Throw in drug/alcohol abuse and the desire to NOT get help and you have a recipe for disaster in most cases. 

Thank God my son is NOT in that category but I know parents who can't say the same. 

Parents of and those with are hopeful that sz will one day--soon!--be less stigmatic as the other more minor, better-known illnesses (not to say that the others are  where they need to be, of course).  After all, autism has come a long way in a seemingly short time.

I sense that the primary reason is personal and for that reason we should just respect it and move on. 

I don't buy the claims that he is avoiding competition.  Otherwise, he wouldn't have committed to begin with, in my view.

Well, I'd say this move puts him in the "headcase" category and am therefore glad we didn't get him after all.

I wholeheartedly agree with your general sentiment here. I especially like your thoughts on mining for and then developing the hungry Ohio 3-star guy (NOT to say that the fives aren't important but MANY people seem to overlook that recruiting a 5-star is far different from getting that 5-star to PLAY like one!). 

​The concerns, for the most part anyhow, over recruiting suffering with Day at the helm are unfounded mostly because Day has been "Urbanized" or groomed from within and, for me, THAT carries more weight than him being a rookie HC or even bringing in an outsider that is foreign to the program's overall culture.

Coach, with all due respect, would you ever be willing to voluntarily resign should YOU ever determine-based on your own criteria- that the program's future would be better off with a different head coach?

I can personally vouche  for your claim. Several years ago I attended a Kent State game there (my daughter was a cheerleader and my future son-in-law played on the team).  When my son and I made our way to the stadium we had to walk through a major tail gating group of PSU fans.  Despite wearing an OSU hat and a Kent State t-shirt, much to our surprise, we received NO grief from any of their fans!!

Prior to this we were treated to a beer by some others in a campus watering hole.  

I was impressed with and very appreciative  of their classy actions!!

As the father of a mentally ill son I can't applaud this enough and pray that it takes off big time!  I do, however, hope that it "trickles down" to the high school levels since that is the age bracket where the EARLIEST symptoms emerge.  The sooner it is detected the better the prognosis.

Not upset at all --about this guy or Mr. Jones--and I have a hunch that just perhaps Meyer & Co. are not as upset as you might suspect.

I respectively disagree that his height is an issue.  Most accomplished athletes like him have HAD TO make up for their height questions by excelling in other areas (namely tenacity and competitiveness...).  Brees and Mayfield are just slightly taller.  Besides, unless OSU recruited him with the intentions of never playing him at QB (athlete perhaps), I suspect they gave his "not optimal" height a GREAT deal of consideration before even offering!
