|08/20/2018 - 7:15pm||My prediction:
Finding 1: He reported everything properly, but he and AD Gene Smith exercised poor professional judgment by keeping Smith on staff.
Finding 2: Urban lied during Big 10 press conference when he denied knowledge of the 2015 events, causing BoT and President to waste time/$ on an avoidable circus.
Punishment: 3 game suspension.

Your O-line stinks, and he's the best O-line coach in the conference. It's a great fit. If he actually gets to be the position coach, you should be ecstatic.
He seems to dislike recruiting and is bad at it. That was the main knock on him when he was Ohio State's offensive line coach.
His worst flaw is that he thinks he should be an offensive coordinator. We will "cackle with knowing glee" if Harbaugh lets him gameplan for you.
When Ohio State hired Tim Beck, there were a lot of Buckeye fans who ignored what Nebraska fans said about him, but it all turned out to be true. Trust interested parties who've had years to observe someone's performance.

It's fair regarding QBs. Haskins may turn out to be the exception.
|08/26/2017 - 7:40pm||Typical OSU RBs||
Weber is only the third OSU freshman to rush for over 1000 yards, and last year's O-line was the worst since Urban arrived in Columbus.
|08/25/2017 - 1:28am||mediocre *at best*||
When Urban Meyer arrived at Ohio State, the consensus here was that good RBs would be nuts to play for him since he'd never coached one who reached 1k yards.
Now the narrative is his system is so RB-friendly that a mediocrity can reach that mark?

The current process, which often amounts to hiring un(der)-qualified entertainers to pantomime as student-athletes, is inherently corrupting. You won't fix it by tinkering with recruiting regs.

That would be ideal. It's particularly gross watching state schools adopt the semi-pro model.

He...won't get any QB development at OSU.
This is why they got rid of Tim Beck and hired Ryan Day.

Just saw this comment by Patton below right after I posted:
"It' the same image we see everywhere that someone put into photoshop and angled the image to distort it and make it look like he got it. You can tell because the hashmarks are sloping down to the left in the picture."
I didn't see the slanted hashmarks until he mentioned it. That's shady.

OSU introduces "committable offer" to the lexicon.
|01/26/2016 - 11:52am||Michgan isn't like Alabama||
Alabama and LSU (or their boosters) pay their players a lot of money. That can insulate a school from bad publicity that might otherwise damage recruiting.
I don't know if Michigan is completely clean, but I assume it's nothing like the SEC. Rep matters more to a program that plays by the rules.

What happens if you silently accept an uncommittable offer?

|11/18/2015 - 11:03pm||Reconsidering||
I should have checked the schedule. That looks potentially rough.
OSU does have a ton of LB/RB/receiver (and QB) talent ready to step in, and there appear to be some good offensive line underclassmen. Look what they did last year with 4 new O-line starters. Warinner is a sorcerer. Defensive tackles are scarce, though.
If OSU goes 8-4, that would match the worst season of Urban Meyer's career. Seems unlikely, but it's not a crazy prediction.
|11/18/2015 - 7:49pm||Great analysis||
Great analysis overall, but OSU would have to finish around 8-4 to rank so low. I don't see that happening unless OSU loses a key assistant or two (like OL coach Ed Warinner) in addition to the players you mentioned.

How much of that is the internet bringing the most rabid fans into contact/conflict? I never heard an anti-Michigan word from my family (a half dozen OSU grads, 2 OSU profs), and never encountered the "fuck Michigan/OSU" stuff before I googled Ohio State and Michigan blogs just prior to the 2006 game.
