Or the new SMU
Signing Day Open Thread
Go fuck yourself.
(said in as nicely a way as possible, FWIW)
How do the Buckeyes have room for this big of a class within the scholarship limits? I know 82 isn't that much less than 85, but still, it seems like they are going to have to shove people out the door (which, of course Meyes would, but I'm just wondering).
Assuming Elliot signs with them, I believe they will be at 85. So either they know of people who are leaving, or they don't have room.
The last time there was a sudden surprising haul of 5*'s was Auburn (when Cam got paid, sorry, when Cam's dad got paid). And we all know how that turned out... wait...
No, Clemson had one a couple of years ago. IIRC, they had two 5*s commit on NLI day and had 4 overall.
What a reversal of recruiting fortures by these 2 in the last 30 days or so.
Football blue blood takes a nosedive while 3rd tier program rockets into the top group. Sanctioned powerhouse crippled while soon-to-be sanctioned school flies.
It would be one thing if these 5-stars were from Mississippi, but pulling the #1 receiver to Ole Miss from Illinois?
No, no you got it all wrong. Michigan just wasn't showing the "love" towards LT that was needed to make him feel special inside.
Anyone have a good current website that shows who is going where? I tried the Rivals page but it doesn't appear to be updating very quickly.
Twitter will give you the most recent info. mgoblue.com has a page dedicated to this and I consider that the official word.
Let's just see how good they will be. Tressel was pretty darn good, albeit dirty as hell, but good. Meyer hasn't won a thing yet.
Except 12 out of 12 games.
No conference title, no bowl victory. In this sport, that's all that matters.
He won the division.
So like I said, he didn't win anything.
So like I said, he didn't win anything.
Then we haven't won anything in a decade
We haven't won a bowl game in a decade?
Didn't read your post close enough. But point still stands. I'm hoping Ohio falls flat as well, but you can't argue that Meyer hasn't had a fantastic start and set-up Ohio for success in the future. Throwing arbitrary bowl games as the true measure of success doesn't make much sense either.
False. Sugar Bowl.
Why the SEC dominates...
Three of the top five teams are SEC schools
Five of the top ten teams are SEC schools
Eight of the top fiften teams are SEC schools
Thirteen of the top thirty teams are SEC schools
Only Missouri is on the outside looking in.
By comparison the Big Ten has:
One team in the top five
Two teams in the top ten
Three teams in the top thirty.
Add Juco's, medical redshirts, and oversigning and you get SEC dominance.
or are there any last second recruits we take like Norfleet?
Mgoblue has a chart with three empty cells, and we have three players we're waiting on for LOI's, so that should be it. (Also, it doesn't seem we'd have room for any more kids.)
Misunderstood the post.
So the two NCs he won at Florida are a mirage?
I thought it was pretty obvious that I was referring to his time at OSU.
He did win 12 games last year. It's fairer to say he hasn't lost anything yet...
The point is that comparion Meyer to Tressel right now is ridiculous. Tressel won the Big Ten just about every year, and was in the title game 3 times. Meyer has one division title in a year that PSU wasn't even eligible. I'm not going to slobber all over him until I see him win something that actually matters.
And PSU wouldn't have won it anyway. I don't like them anymore than you do, but geez, Meyer couldn't have gotten off to a better start.
I'm not arguing that the start has been bad.
I get what you're saying but I think the writing on the wall is clear - Ohio is going to be very formitable under Meyer. I was hoping the end of Tressel would cause Ohio to rebuild but they haven't skipped a beat.
Poggi's is in. The Alabama fretting can finally cease.
McCray's is in too.
Off topic, but more bad publicity for ND. Hockey player arrested for assaulting a women.
If Brady Hoke had Urban Meyer's on-field resumé, everybody here at MGoBlog would be slobbering all over him and you'd be one of them.
Your very obvious dislike of Meyer might be well-founded on personal terms, but your dismissal of his proven coaching abilities througout his career is whistling past the graveyard. There is nothing in his record that indicates he won't be a success at OSU, with the single exception of the circumstances surrounding his departure from Florida.
What is it specifically about Meyer that leads you to think he's going to "implode?"
If Brady Hoke had Urban's off-the-field resume, I'd become an MSU fan.
Well, that wasn't my point, was it? That's why I specifically said you had well-founded reasons to dislike Meyer for personal reasons. And we both know that Meyer's going to have to get caught banging Gene Smith's wife in order to be fired for off-the-field reasons, because the entire OSU administration from Gee on down couldn't care less how much the head football coach cheats.
You still haven't given a reason why you think Meyer is going to implode. Will it be for personal reasons, or will it be for lack of success on the field? And if it's the latter, why do you think he won't be successful? Is it because his coaching competition in the conference is better now than what Tressel had to face?
I think Urban will have a few years of success at OSU. I see it being a very short tenure ending badly. First, you have absurd expectations that are higher than anywhere else in the country, a coach who clearly has enormous problems handling stress, a coach whose former players testified that he ran the locker room so poorly there were players who refused to participate in conditioning, players faking injuries at the request of coaches, and at one point a star player physically assaulting another coach ( "The program...was out of control"). You cannot sustain success with that going on, which is probably why he's never been at one place for very long. I've just seen this story play out too many times. Big name, huge ego, tons of hype, tons of talk, but never meeting expectations.
I predict that OSU will lose two games this year mainly due to a weak front seven, and three the following year with what is shaping up to be a craptastic O-line. That's when shit will start to hit the fan.
Believe me, I hope you're right. Losing to OSU is always painful, but it's doubly worse when their coach is a cheating, sanctimonious liar.
It is a bit odd that with their great class, tOSU has very little in the way of O-linemen. Two recruits, both three stars. Given that this was an area of present weakness, I'm surprised that Urban did go all in after this position. Or is he just obsessed with skill players?
Hmm.. Big name coach, spread system, little attention to OLine. What could possibly go wrong?
One more and that will be it. No losses is huge. This is a great day.
Dawson is in. The gang's all here.
Do I leave my text alerts on in case of Norfleet 2.0?
Unless we snake oil someone or offer someone else it looks like that is it. Hooray for Hoke and staff. Let the pressed begin.
