I showed it to put things into perspective, if you will, and to point out that someone has a lot of work to do to improve things over the long haul. So in a way it's constructive criticism.

The Students, the Alumni, and the educators should be a part  of the U of M family, right along with all the athletic teams. They should be part of the Football team. The same with season ticket holders.

The fair weather fans not so much. But Harbaugh should encourage access between the team and the above fans if he hasn't been. I don't go in for that much so I don't get upset.

I agree with Spath.

I think that Harbaugh brought all his coaches in because he wanted them and should be kept as long as Harbaugh stays. Kind of like they are all in it together and should have the chance to live or die with him.

But then again what do i know?

A write up I found

By buckeye in georgia on 19:41:33 01/04/19

A few things that are important to know/consider as you read this.

1. Justin Fields lives in a very affluent part of the county. Average home price is minimum $300K with most north of $500K. There are few (if any) multi-family buildings. Honestly, I can't think of any in the Harrison High School district, but there might be a couple. That said, Harrison is pretty unique from a demographic perspective when compared to the rest of the county.

2. In 8th grade, Justin played Bruce Cobleigh's (google him, great guy and the best X/O high school coach I've ever known) Wing T system.

3. In high school, the years he started, they still ran the Wing-T, but it wasn't traditional. They spread the field a little more, put the QB in the gun, and "played with 11". They also added a bunch of specific stuff to Justin's skill set. I noticed this past season that they went back to more fundamental Wing-T principles.

So, knowing all of that, this is what I can tell you.

The first time I coached against him I was pretty sure that I lost. That was 2012. Going back and looking at it, I had a 5-4 team that season and some of the names on that team kind of make me uncertain, now. Justin was a little on the smaller side that season, but clearly their best athlete. Basically, stop him and you win the game. Remember, they were traditional Wing-T at the time. But they were heavier pass than run with Fields, so most plays ended up looking like RPO stuff. If he didn't like what he saw, he pulled it down and went.

In 2013, he played 8th grade again. I know we beat him that season because we finished 10-2 (lost first game of the season and then in the semi finals). Justin got taller, but wasn't any thicker. He was pretty skinny that season. But still, clearly, the best athlete on the field every time he stepped on it.

So, he was very, very good as an 8th grade QB. But probably not in the top five that I've seen at that age. The kid at Marietta (Harrison Bailey) is probably the best I've ever seen. He was 6'2" 190 in 8th grade and got his first offer at the end of his 8th grade season. My QB this past season is probably number two on the list. He's 6'2" 205 and got his first offer half way through the season (he was also a redshirt).

Moving on to high school, we played him twice. We lost to him his junior year and we beat him his senior year. A couple things to note, though. Justin grew up. He was, without question, the best football player on the field both seasons. We were able to hang and then win because our demographic is way, way different than Harrison. So, we have athletes all over the field. Harrison has a few in spots and they have Justin Fields. Harrison is a 500 team without him. They are elite with him. The kid carried the team, basically. He only really had one outstanding receiver to throw the ball to. But, he used the whole field, spread the ball around, and ran it whenever he wanted to. He was, without a doubt, the best high school QB I've ever watched play. He takes over games and his team rallies around him. The best comparison has been made many times on this site. He is a Cam Newton type player.

To close it out, we also played Trevor Lawrence twice in the same two high school seasons. He beat us both times. But he was also surrounded by athletes that matched up with ours at every position. We got to him. We rattled him. But he had enough around him to help him. Justin didn't get rattled and he didn't have the same athletes helping him. Justin carried his team. Lawrence took advantage of his (that isn't meant to be a slam on Lawrence, he did his job). That said, give me Justin Fields every day and twice on Saturday. He's a better football player than Trevor Lawrence, IMO.

Done deal.

Maybe someone at Ohio State will call him a name and he'll transfer again....

Martell has stated that the starting job is his no matter if fields comes or not and Fields had better know he needs to win the job.

Ohio State gets great players because they know about the coaching staff preparing them for the NFL, and the chance of winning championships. Lineman are crying to be taught by Johnson, The WR's know and trust Hartline to get them ready and the DB's just come in droves. They have great coaches in Wilson, Day, Schiano and now Yurcich(?).

And Fields knows he has a great QB coach or two there.

God save the UM

Got a link to that proof or did you just read it in Social Studies 101? Tired of guys saying there's proof and then not providing it.

Oh for sure everything on the internet it Gospel. Do't make me laugh. Got any real proof? Or maybe you think the media, the competition, the NCAA, and all you guys are just giving all the "payers" a free pass..

Do you have a link or evidence pertaining to Saban's illegal activities or is this just some more sophmoric rhetoric?

So you're saying that anyone who coaches at Ohio State sells their souls? What kinda of idiocy is that?

I think the position is wide open. Higdon was average and he got most of the carries. JMO the only hope is someone steps way up.

maybe better news later after someone stays at a Holiday Inn Express.....

It ain't luck that Ohio State gets good coaches. Who wouldn't want to coach there? Besides Sabin, Swinney etc.

Water, still trying to flush Sunday through.

JMO but I think Harball got lucky by getting Ruddock and Patterson, apparently none of his recruits were good enough to displace them as the starter and if so then how much productive would the last 2 years be. 8-4, 9-3 or worse. I'm not too enthralled with Harball's ability to recruit/enable Qb's..

Saw somewhere in here that Gentry came expecting to be a QB and got the shaft from Harball????

Did either of the above improve under Harball? not that I noticed.

No reason for him to stay. The best players all left and he got his sheepskin. And after the last 2 games what did he have to look forward to?

Just really sucks to be a U of M fan right now. It was supposed to be a great year. Instead it ends up with two bad losses and giving up 100 points in two games even with a "NFL pipeline defense" and a "great" coach who would lead the football program back to the rainbow.

Can't beat a top 10 team, and can't hardly remember the last win over the Buckeyes.

62 points to the Buckeyes!!

Where's my whiskey?
