We both have our days LacureYou always make good points, Dee (though it pains me to admit that).
One thing to keep in mind about your point in your last point is this: while Meyer is showing his recruiting prowess, don't the same numbers you quoted below state something about ohio???
"Meyer hasn't played a Game at TOSU and has landed almost two dozen sought after recruits since November 22 of last year. That's only 5 months of recruits so far." ...and after a pretty high-publicity "scandal."
...to me that reads these kids are coming to play for Meyer and they do not think too much about ohio...they are not coming to play for ohio. :tsk: That may not matter to the ohio faithful, but maybe it should. Just my opinion.
Win some, lose some. Kid wanted to get away. Pretty smart kid. USC has a great depth chart for him and it's USC, aka RB university. We'll see how Derrick Green comes around or Jordan Wilkins. Not set in stone if we take another RB.We both have our days Lacure
With the reasoning you state, when UM couldn't recruit for the last several years, the recruits were not looking at UM as a "school to attend" and based on the lack of recruits that they were able to land they weren't coming to play for UM or your coach at that time.:tsk::biggrin:
That puts UM in a worse light then TOSU based on your example?:biggrin:
Meyer doesn't have on his agenda "getting every Ohio recruit that he can". His agenda is no different then what has made him successful-getting the best recruit possible. Some years Ohio has some great recruits, and some years PA,Fla, NC or some other state does. The Carolinas right now is a hot bed for talent and there is a "real focus" there from this coaching staff. Great example- RB - Derrell Scott from NC. Highly regarded 2014 recruit many are looking at and TOSU has a high interest in. Fits Meyer's offense very well.
Personally UM struggled much more in their "quest" to become competitive again-The difference is that TOSU rebounded much quicker, attracted a qualified coach who was #1 on their list and were able to get back into the "game". (Keep in mind TOSU recruited real well before Meyer). UM took many years to re-group, and couldn't attract their #1 coaching target the last two attempts, so I guess TOSU has been able to attract coaches and qualified recruits at a much better pace-maybe the school is attracting better prospects at both levels for other reasons other then athletics, as well as athletics?.:coolgleamA:
By The way FNF- nice post. Ty Issac went where?:biggrin:
BTW-How many "Offensive linemen" can play at once on offense?:yikes::biggrin:BTW, how many freaking DE's can play at once on defense?
Last I counted was 5 OL and only 2 de. Haha. I know some will be stand up OLB's. Not sure what OSU's depth was at DE/OLB, but Michigans depth at OL was horrible and is still a bit shaky until next yearBTW-How many "Offensive linemen" can play at once on offense?:yikes::biggrin:
New 2014 Offer-They just keep coming....
