Poop anywhere other than in coolers.
They don't redshirt because the players that play there want to get out of that university as quick as possible
It's nothing to be ashamed about. Everybody redshirts people, redshirts you, redshirts me, whatever.
Can we just combine this thread and the "Rats of Columbus" thread and the "Urban Hates Us" thread into one giant "We Hate Ohio State Thread to Rule Them All"?
And they did. And so will OSU.
But hey, if they want to have undersized linemen who get one less year when they're in their prime, and star QB's using up a year of eligibility doing nothing, more power to him.
If you read the entire interview, the point is that anybody good enough to see any playing time their freshman year will play that year. It means that they won't be "saving" players for their 5th year - a common tactic if a team is loaded at a position.
No, that doesn't mean there won't be any redshirts. It means they will only be used if that player is not good enough to see any playing time at all.
He did the same thing in Florida - but there were still obviously redshirts.
And water is wet. So what is the purpose of the statement? And where is it a "common tactic"" to save players who are good enough to play? Not at any program I've heard about. Not the good ones, at least. The best players play. If anything, it's fans who wonder too often why guys are getting redshirted instead of just playing special teams or something. And it's usually because they don't understand the morale of a team, and how players can see just as well as coaches who are the best players. And if you play guys who aren't trying as hard and producing as much, not only does it discourage the guy on the bench, but the whole team. So what you're saying Meyer is doing isn't really different than any other well run program, so I don't see the point of the statement then. Though I guess it can be chalked up to coachspeak...the old we don't promise them a redshirt or promise them playing time...they earn it deal. So if you want to chalk it up as him saying the same stupid things everyone say to the stupid media, I can buy that. If he or you are trying to say he's doing something different than how other people do it, well, that's laughable.
of "compliance" here at Ohio
Beat Michigan in football in 2011
"we call it scarlett-shirting"
He does realize that Michigan is a much better school AND has a larger alumni base, right?
And to qualify as an alum, you need to graduate college first.
"We don't Redshirt because if you need to be redshirted, you're not good enough to play right away. We'd rather you be gone in 4 years to make room for other, more talented players than to give you a chance with a 5th year."
Hate to say it, but apparently they also don't teach useful photoshopping.
that kid get a neon osu sign on his soccer jersey?
Is redshirt the new cool kids way of saying "monitor for compliance?"
I mean, schools redshirt kids for a reason. It would be pretty crazy to prefer to get the age 18 season of a kid instead of his age 23 season?
Is it because they think all their kids are going to the NFL?
No doubt he's using it as a recruiting tool, and obviously it is a lie, there is no chance in hell they wont redshirt anybody. Meyer sells recruits on this policy, and when they dont perform he goes up to them and says "Hey, I know I said that before, but it would be best for you if you took a year to practice." The kid is convinced its the right move for him, and everybody is happy. Kind of a dishonest way to recruit, if you ask me.
He just wants an arsenal of "leg ups" for recruiting. High profile kids want early playing time. Good strategy for recruiting, bad strategy for when those kids run out of eligibility a year before they are prime for All American honors.
Or jail? Wait. Sorry. I was thinking of MSU.
know if you want fries with your order, that's why they asked.
was why he left, the big house does it better.
They don't red shirt because they have too many guys in jail, suspended, hung over, or recovering from getting their tramp stamp tattoo earlier in the day
"We don't buy new cars here at Ohio State, we just take extended test drives."
"We don't fire our head coaches here at Ohio State, they fire us."
We don't fire our coaches at OSU, they retire as tragic heros.
Conclusion? Ohio is Soviet Russia
Can I get an amen?
That way when they're physically ready to play they only have 1-3 years to prove themselves, and by that time we can cut them for recruits that are better.
Your teams also lose to Michigan in bowl games even when the game is held in your team's home state, right Urb?
Why would he care if players redshirt? He won't be there in 5 years anyway.
Pick up on the avatar. He very much resembles Joe Dirt.
"We don't worry about academics, there's no way you can fail, even if you give minimal effort you can't fail"
"We can't beat the SEC...or Michigan without cheating!"
I wish Ohio State the best of luck with this idea. If you're going to load your roster with specimens who are ready to play from Day 1, go for it. Have fun fighting the SEC schools for them. Have fun when they jump to the pros after 3 years.
Meanwhile the rest of the intelligent world will be recruiting a mixture of kids who are ready on day one and supplmenting that with guys who require a year of redshirtinng/time in a college weight program.
I wonder if Pryor had the preferred leasing plan from Chrysler...
"We don't have gold pants to pawn from the 2011 game".
dont get this I mean every team redshirts What advantage do you get by just sitting the bench your freshman year and losing a year of eligability cause old Urban doesnt use redshirts. I mean this is just another dumb thing out of his mouth.
He used to seeing juniors leaving for nfl so might just play them
You don't get it because it makes zero sense. If recruits thought about it, they would realize it makes zero sense as well.
he said this at florida too. it's just recruiting bs
as an academic institution to remove an AD and President who acted disgracefully in the face of an obviously lying and cheating head coach. In fact, we now act like this never happened at all. This has changed our culture, and will haunt us in the end."
I Hate seeing UM abbreviated for Urban Myer, this is a blasphemy, fer god's sake!!!
Lol I just realized too
Probably lowers probablility of arrest during 4am "training meetings" outside well respected establishments near a 24 hour tattoo parlour.
Or is the lint brush hilarious?
I may be a gun nut, but I thought it was funny that it totally looks like he took a jigsaw to a 2x6 to make his own keyhole stock for his AK...
So at first glance im thinking "he has the nfl stary eyed kids in his sights" so they can dream of ditching asap to the nfl, actually genuis Then im thinking what about academics? Im glad he isnt mentoring at least 25 kids (our class) this year so they can be ready for a life after football. What a complete sleaze bag and im sure doucheye nation celebrates this mentality as gun ho. Much to my dismay this cavalier attitude will only help make the b1g look like somethings its not... The sec.
We don't spell "State" even though it's so easy Sparty can do it.
I stand corrected.
really the team up north is all they could come up with.
I thought they were universally referred to as Ohio now. Yet on recent post's it say's "We don't redshit at Ohio ()," This puzzles me.
that red frosting will do it every time:
well at least we FINALLY beat them ! barely....
Please stop hanging on every word another team's coach says. Its sad. We all know he meant that if you are good enough to play as a true freshman you will and won't be forced to redshirt. This is the policy at, ummm, every school since Marshall got the rule changed.
Nothing to see here, move along.
Wisky coach Bret Beilema says AD Barry Alvarez will speak to Jim Delany about Meyer's recruiting tactics.
Meyer doesn't like the word Friend
Did he say Professional? or Probation?
We don't . . .
Meyer has a lot bs in him
