I coach HS track in Ohio and to me these rules are a joke. As a coach, you want your athlete to perform the best they possibly can, as safe as possible. The use of electronics is mostly used in the Shot, Discus, High Jump, and Pole Vault to help them correct their technique. Watching video in a "designated area" or "coaching box" is ok, but one step to the left or right is a violaion? Give me a break. What are they really trying to accomplish here. Lets do everything we can to help our kids, not disqualify them because the rules are ignorant.

There is no sure thing that UM gets either one of those guys. If he wants to come, you have to take him. Also, I don't think Harris would be scared to compete with any back. If he is THAT good, he will beat them out.

I don't doubt for a second that he had some health issues, but I think the reason he left is because Florida was mediocre at that point. He left that team in shambles. Everyone spreads this myth that Urban builds these great programs....when? where?
He went to BG and won with Blackney's players, and inherited 2 stud QB's (Josh Harris, Omar Jacobs). Then he bolted and stumbled upon a Heisman winning QB and future NFL starter/Pro Bowler. Won there and left. Took Zook's team, won a title. Maintained a upper echelon program, with a Heisman winning QB, for several years, then the wheels fell off and he couldn't take mediocrity. Then he happens to fall into OSU, with an excellent QB.
I am really anxious to see what happens when Braxton is gone. If he doesn't have a top tier QB, his teams haven't been anything to brag about. They better hope they can find someone who can excel in that system in the coming years, or I fear he might have more "health issues".

The problem with paying these kids to play football in college is that it is never going to be enough. They already get a free education, plus close to $1,000 a month, with free food. If you pay them, they will still want more and still take money from boosters. That kid who couldn't afford a tv so he had to watch it in the union, probably blew all his money on Jordans or gambling. If he really wanted a tv, he could have gotten himself a tv.
When people grow up and don't have money, their first taste is like a drug. They want more and more and more. Pretty soon, it is all about the money and they put making money over anything else.
I am a HS football coach and we have 3 guys playing in the B1G and 6 in the MAC from our last 2 graduating classes. They come back and visit, or I go visit them frequently. Its amazing how the kids who never had money are so focused on money. A kid I coached is at MSU, all he talks about is all the free stuff they get and how all the players make money off it. I went and visited our kids at Kent State, they told me story after story about how all the kids on the team lose all their money gambling. One player gambled his entire meal card for the semester and lost it the first day of classes.
It doesn't matter what we give them or what they truly deserve, it will never be enough, players will cheat, players will steal, booster will pay them, and we will be facing the same issues.
And for the record, I do feel that players should be paid, but there needs to be a system/scale that pays the bigtime players more, and it must be realitively equal throughout.

It was easy to see why Brady is so successful in recruiting. He is a great speaker and speaks from the heart. I would have a hard time believing that anyone would not want their son to play for this man.
Also, Kovacs was hilarious, he had a ton of one-liners ripping on Brady.

Hopefully they end up a 2 or 3, gives them an extra game before playing the 1, although it doesn't seem like there is much differences between the top 15-20 teams this year.

With Hoke coaching the DT and Mattison having his hand in on a little of everything, I'm sure he just wanted the opportunity to coach more. He is also going to be the Recruiting Co-Coordinator at OU. Just a better fit for him personally.
I don't see how they could hire anything but a D-Line coach. You can't have your HC being the only D-Line coach. He has too much other stuff to worry about.
