    These guys around here are crazy. Why get rid of a 7 to 8 win coach year after year. Delusional fans think they are a blue blood team or something. If they get a new coach they will really suck for a long time. Plus the buyout is pretty steep. Lots of local pressure about the millions spent on stadium and now can't even fill it. LOL.

    AN UNRESOLVED SITUATION

    Ohio State remains in a bit of a holding pattern, meanwhile, when it comes to the above-mentioned Jones, who visited both Auburn and Florida State this weekend.

    The four-star quarterback commit was in Tallahassee on Thursday night as Heard County prepared for the state quarterfinals in Thomasville, which is about 45 minutes away from the Seminoles' campus. Sources close to Jones told Eleven Warriors he spent the night, hung out with some current players and threw the ball around at the team's practice facility.

    Florida State was a program Jones mentioned he wanted to visit this spring, but nothing developed as the Seminoles chased now-Georgia five-star quarterback commit Justin Fields. Now that it appears head coach Jimbo Fisher might be on his way to Texas A&M, it's unclear if Jones' interest in the program remains.

    It's important to understand Thursday night's visit was more so about simply being in the area than it was Jones seeking out a visit.

    After Jones accounted for three touchdowns in the Braves' 28-14 win, he headed to Auburn for its game against top-ranked Alabama. It was his second unofficial visit in the last month, but that same source doesn't believe the Tigers have a legitimate shot at flipping him from his pledge.

    So all of that said, Jones remains committed to Ohio State — though the strength of that pledge varies depending on who you ask or how you view his string of visits elsewhere this fall — and Alabama is the only program that could seemingly change his mind.

    Like Cox, time is running out for Jones to make a final decision. And while the Buckeyes continue to pursue other quarterbacks in case he does flip to the Crimson Tide, getting him back on campus one final time next month is the staff's top priority.

    Hope he comes here. If he signs early, there's a very good chance he competes for playing time as soon as he gets here.

    Ideally, I would want him to sit a year and let Haskins take the reins for 1-2 years, but if he's that good, let em loose.

    Please stick with your commitment. The door is wide open at QB.

    THEIR TOP PRIORITY

    Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day were in Georgia on Tuesday night to meet with four-star quarterback commit Emory Jones, obviously doing everything they can to hold onto his pledge. And though he didn’t publicly reaffirm his commitment, it appears the visit went well.

    The 6-foot-3, 195-pound Jones took to social media to share some thoughts on the Buckeyes’ newest commitment, four-star defensive back Tyreke Johnson.

    I must caution you to not get too excited and assume these string of tweets indicate Jones will stay committed to Ohio State because he’s been pretty pro-Buckeye on social media despite several trips to Alabama and Auburn this fall. The overwhelming sentiment remains that he’ll end up with the Crimson Tide when things are all said and done — and it appears that’s not something to which he's taken to kindly.

    “I mean, I’m committed to Ohio State,” Jones told SEC Country following Heard County’s loss in the state semifinals on Friday. “I’ve been committed to them for like two years. I think I would have decommitted by now if I wasn’t going there. I still talk to Coach [Urban] Meyer and the staff all of the time. So, I don’t know why people think that.”

    Either way, I believe we’ll have a resolution to the situation by the end of the weekend. Both programs want to take a quarterback this cycle, so they’re surely pushing for a final decision to come soon, especially since Jones is set to sign during the Early Signing Period on Dec. 20-22.

    If it comes by Sunday, for example, the Buckeyes will either be set at quarterback or will have a week to set up an official visit with prospects like Texas three-star Matthew Baldwin and secure his pledge. Same goes for the Crimson Tide, who have reportedly also been reaching out to other quarterbacks — which makes it clear they’re not entirely convinced they’ll be able to flip Jones.

    Now I don’t want to give you false hope, and I’m going against my own advice and reading too far into things, but this is the first time in the last month where a part of me feels as if Jones will still sign with Ohio State. In fact, I’d change my 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction from Alabama to “Cloudy” if I could.

    The next few days will be key, and the Buckeyes will have to withstand an in-home visit from Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban. And we should find out sooner rather than later if they could.

    This kid throws so accurate and his footwork sucks so bad in the pocket. Once he gets some next level coaching, I’m telling y’all, he’s the next DeShaun Watson, only faster. Never wanted a QB more than this one, other than Watson and Terrelle Pryor.

    Meyer so close to finally getting his guy here. Gotta think this would definitely be a game changer.
