this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Per the Intrawebnets and the Twitter-sphere-verse:
So to go with my diary post a while back, the EL newspaper just released a big story on what the football team is doing with my cousin, figured some of you who appreciated the diary might like a read:
EDIT: Here's a video to go along with it.
Thayer Evans of Fox Sports says:
The University of Miami is doing it right by self-imposing a bowl ban. That’s something Ohio State never did . Granted there are differences, however, OSU still allowed players to play in the Sugar Bowl after 5 players became ineligible by accepting illegal benefits (now known to include money as well as tattoos). The NCAA should never have allowed this. Now, OSU is still trying to “snake its way out of NCAA woes” by minimizing penalties.
“The NCAA should factor in Ohio state’s arrogance” when deciding what penalties to impose.
I remember it so well..The OSU vs Florida NC game..The Bucks came in with the offense that nobody could seem to stop..and Florida had the fast spread offense useing 2 QBs..but during that game a different thing stood out to me.
The Florida defense tore the OSU offense apart..not only from a players being faster aspect but from a just plain had a coaching gameplan aspect..Florida was always one step ahead and made Troy Smith look as uncomfortable as skinny jeans appear to be..It got to the point that Troy Smith would not even look downfield..he was too busy figuring out where he was going to get hit from.
Well that Defensive Cordinator was Greg Mattison..and not only did he help Meyer win his 1st NC but im sure he learned a thing or two about Meyer from practice everyday and coaching his defense..just some food for thought
Rich Rod is the leading candidate for the University of Arizona job according to multiple twitter sources. Nothing concrete but very interesting. There was talk that ASU would consider him if Erikson left.
EDIT: confirmed by Bruce Feldmen. Apparently they will be announcing within the next 48 hours.
EDIT: It's official. The University of Arizona has hired Rich Rod as their next head coach. Goodluck to him.
