BRING IT ON!
BRING IT ON!
I'm thinking these kids are visiting Columbus more because Urban is telling them how beautiful Ohio is this time of year. As the sewage freezes, the state smells a little less. That's the only logical explanation. Surely they aren't really interested in going to sweat and bleed for a school being punished for crimes these recruits had nothing to do with (to the best of our knowledge).
When it comes to football, Ohio recruits itself and with Meyer at the helm, players like Diggs and Jameis will choose to attend tsio every year. That's great! It only makes a victory that much more sweeter or a defeat that less sorrowful when you facing them at their best as oppose to the alternative. Although it felt great to finally get a win this year, in reality it was a gimme game that Ohio played well in but that we should have won and had we loss, it would have been the worst loss in the history of this rivalry given the depleted state that Ohio was in. I want both schools at their best because as history has shown and the record indicates, Ohio's best has never been able match Michigan's. Fuck Ohio!!! Go Blue...
these kids are visiting. It is surprising that these kids are visiting barely 2 weeks after Meyer got appointmented.
He's gonna bring it. Gotta have faith in Hoke. And he never really won in the SEC without Tebow. And as we are witnessing, Tebow is just a winner. And as sarcastic as that sounds, it just isn't sarcastic.
...........Meyer just landed in a conference where he's gonna have issues winning like he did in his last couple years at Florida. I just don't see Meyer coming into the B1G and being a world-beater like Tressel was, even if they share the same ethics issues.
The SEC wasn't considered the top college football conference in the nation before Meyer went to Florida. It wasn't like he went in and turned Florida into the top power in a conference of perennial heavyweights. The SEC overall was no better than the B12, B10, or even the ACC at that time. Miles came into the SEC the same year as Meyer, which is also the same year that Saban left for the NFL., and also the same year that Spurrier came back to cfb at South Carolina. Fulmer was still at Tennessee, but they hadn't been relevant for a couple years. And Richt was just starting his downslide at Georgia.
In all, the SEC when Meyer got there wasn't very good, all things considered. IMO, without Tebow, Meyer would have been as big a failure at Florida as the Zooker was, but without the top-notch recruiting Zook was known for.
Will Meyer succeed at Ohio? It all depends on if he can use Tressel's left over recruits to build something in these first couple of years. If he can, then the Ohio name and recent success (with Meyer at the helm) will continue to gather some pretty good recruits for a few years, but they will fall into a downslide. The question is when. I'd guess around year four of the Meyer regime at Ohio. I'm not scared in the slightest about what Meyer will do at Ohio.
We have a coach at Michigan who looks to have the program heading to the top of the B1G, and possibly to the top teams of cfb overall. We have a DC that it seems can turn our D's into northern versions of Bama's or LSU's D's the last few years. We will probably lose some to Ohio that we should win, but my guess is that Michigan will be on the favorable end of the head-to-head record between us and Ohio during Hoke's time here. I'm not scared of them or Meyer one bit.
Screw Urban Meyer, the NCAA and Ohio! Hoke-A-Mania baby!!!
