Mike Lantry, 1972
According to a pro scout's report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Hyde’s Wonderlic score was 9. Given that 10 is the minimal literacy level, you wonder who Carlos has to thank at Ohio for his great academic achievement. Maybe he can credit Urban Meyer, who was so tough on Carlos.
Once, Meyer kept Carlos out for two whole plays after an unspecified “academic infraction”. Oddly, Hyde’s performance turned out to be “the third-best rushing performance in Ohio State history.
Meyer said about Carlos “"He's fine. He has been great and I expect him to be great again. I have no problem with Carlos….(but) "Academically our guys are held to a certain standard,"
Since a 9 score on the Wonderlic does not meet the standard for basic literacy (10), you have to wonder what exactly was the standard of Meyer and Ohio . (think North Carolina)
Looks to be a slow day, so I'll see if I can get this exchange between Mike Martin (YTMM) and Mark Snyder (YTMS) to post. If the picture doesn't embed properly, click the link in the first tweet. Yes, another exposé narrowly averted.
Warning - picture contains furry slippers, pizza remains, and the bones of a recent victim.

In the first half of the season the top college teams got off about 40% more offensive plays than the leading pro teams. Notre Dame averaged 93 plays a game; Yale, 89; Ohio State, 87; Georgia, 85. USC, with its ground attack, andTennessee, with its consciousness about field position, still averaged 78 each. This compared with Los Angeles at 65 plays a game; Dallas, 63; Baltimore, 60 and Green Bay, 57.
"We are now getting plays off every 12 or 13 seconds," says Ohio State's Woody Hayes. "We are moving so fast I frequently can't get a play in from the sidelines. We'll hit 100 plays a game soon." This, coming from one of football's bastions of the conservative, makes it plain that something big has happened.
By comparison, this year Texas Tech averaged 90.3 plays per game, the highest in FBS.
And in 1968, it was option offense that was seen as the culprit for the high-octane, high-scoring offenses:
"The hammer that has broken things down is the option play," says Frank Broyles of Arkansas. "If we just spread people out and let the quarterback drop back and throw like the pros, you could play a consistent defense. But now you've got teams with two split receivers, with runners, and with quarterbacks who can run the option as well as throw. This simply generates more offense than any defense can handle."
The tackle is in trouble because of the biggest vogue in college football—"Homer's Triple," as some call it, or the "Houston Veer," as others refer to it. It is a quarterback option play first devised by Cincinnati Coach Homer Rice, then expanded upon by Houston Coach Bill Yeoman. If you run it Homer's way, the tackle gets optioned instead of blocked. You make that hulking soul worry about three things: a give to the runner, a keep by the quarterback or a pitchout. If you run it Houston's way, both the tackle and the end are optioned instead of blocked. Perhaps it should be called Somebody's Quadruple, because the quarterback can also pass as he goes veering down the line.
There truly is nothing new under the sun.
First of all, this is in no way official. A writier at TFM dug around and found a graphic designers concepts at how schools could update uniforms.
Here is a link.
I am not a big fan generally but I know people do like uniformz.I am not too old but I fall on the old foggie side of many changes in football so I will leave it to others to explain how wonderful showing the state of Michigan on the uniform will rock.
Stupid reports, though I find it funny that OSU apparently has a pandemic of accidental dials to potential recruits. The calls lasted less than a minute, but they had enough of them.
Among other great things Nussmeier brings to the table, he apparently runs tempo in practice which IMO leads to an ability for the offense to, you know, actually run tempo in games.
It could also actually help our defense get used to tempo so they won't be seeing it for the first time in September or October.
