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.
All I can say is, I hope they are dumb enough to be unhappy with him. Talk about the 24 hour news cycle mentality of America.
