    Welp. Looks like he changed his mind over night and OSU is out. Shocking.

    sucks we didn't get him, but im not going to pout about it like those guys on 11W. He's good, no doubt, but shit happens.

    Not just saying this but I think his personality would not be a fit in the long run at Ohio State. Always thought there was something off with him.

    I stand by this...Wanted him but he would not start for a couple of years.

    With that said, Urban has to figure out how to beat Dabo.

    I'm ok losing him. Of all the kids in this class, he seemed like the one to miss on and it work out better for us.

    At the end of the day, culture is more important than any individual kid. That starts with having kids that are 100% committed to your program and would run through a wall for your staff.

    Losing talent like Carmen, Cox, Parsons, Jones, etc sucks, but Urban has his culture in place and I trust that we'll continue our upward trajectory under his guidance.

    I am shocked that we're losing kids to schools like UGA, UF, and USC though. While those schools do have great new staffs, recruits are really taking a risk by signing with an unsure thing.

    Clemson makes sense. They're one of the steadiest programs around over the past 5-6 years.

    I think Urban is pissed about this one because Dabo is out here telling recruits that Meyer is close to hanging it up. But Meyer could put those rumors to bed when asked if he plans on coaching until he's 65, he should't say "no.....well, maybe". Which is what he did today.

    Urban can put this to bed by getting back to what made him a great coach in the first place ... Competition.

    Kids want to come to Ohio State to be great, and they don't want to sit behind someone who isn't great just because Urban has a love affair with him. If you look at 4 of the 5 recruits we lost, one was a QB (Jones) that watched a talented backup ride the pine while JT struggled, and the other 3 (Woodbey, Carman, and Parsons) went to Twitter to express their opinions that Haskins should get a shot.

    I think Urban's stubbornness is beginning to turn into a weakness for us.

    It's odd bc he was the one who made the 2 QB system famous at UF with Leak/Tebow.

    Yeah good point...Urban did say today that the days of a younger player sitting behind a player not as good are in the past.

    Yeah coach, you said that the day you took the job, and every year since. It's not just JT. There's no way that Damon Webb was the best option at Safety last year and this year. Or Marcus Baugh was better than Berry. I'm sorry, I'm not buying it.

    I think this year lights a fire in Urban. If not, Dabo might be right ...

    You can't walk around and preach greatness, then play scared. There's no way you can tell me that Haskins shouldn't have at least had a chance against Iowa, and there's absolutely no way in HELL JT was a better option than Haskins in the Michigan game with that bum knee.

    The truth is that the best players haven't been playing for a while. If you want that next-level talent to come in and compete for work on day 1, then you have to give them the incentive to hustle.

    Hopefully we can get back to the old Urban next year. If our WRs stay on board, this team is ready for a NC run.
