Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Scott Loeffler used to say "I don't negative recruit, except for one school.... Because they f***ing cheat... He wears a sweater vest."
He would mention that the dude is basically a phony. The sweater vest, WWJD bracelet, clean cut thing was a big front. I think when you hear it from someone that recruits against him, is part of the whole coaching network, there's some juice to it (rival school or not).
I was hearing the same type of stuff about fulmer. Talking to some of his employees and former recruits, it turned out to be legit. His recruiting pitch was to ask players what their favorite car was.
So no, it wasn't all tin-foil conspiracy theorists down on Tressel.
Anyway, I think Brady Hoke is one lucky guy. I don't think he was going to have a winning record against Tressel. I don't think it's going to happen against Kelly either. But hey, we may have a shot at OSU now.
It paints a picture of Tressel being a very sympathetic figure. Here's my problem with it though. All the good things you do, don't change the rules you decided knowingly to ignore. If Jim Tressel is a truly good person (and I don't suspect that he's an "evil" person) then he can continue these types of things without actually being the head coach. The two things aren't exclusive to each other.
because Jon Falk would catch anyone that tried.
Just curious, who else here thinks that Pryor will sing like a canary if they don't let him play? I personally think he will spill ALL of the beans if they try to keep him off the field. From whate we've learned, I don't see him keeping his mouth shut through all of this.
Not trying to jump the gun here, but I believe George Dohrman will never have to purchase another alcoholic beverage in the state of Michigan. His money is no good here!
