Urban Meyer Just oozes that "it factor". Looks good, looks confident, looks smooth! These kids have to notice that too! Then they go up to that dumb BBQ and see flounder!? There's just no way they're in the same league. Idc. No way.
As I said in another thread, Corch's legs were stunning that night.
Know homo, obviously.
The message each is selling is equally important. Being tOSU and scUM, clearly the expectations are high. Under Meyer, you're working hard and competing from Day 1, expected to contribute immediately and then work hard to hold off above average talent coming in the classes behind you. There is no let up, and you know it right away. At scUM, are they pitching the same, or is it more leisurely? Less pressure (partially due to less talent on the depth chart)? I really don't think we know how Hoke's staff is at developing talent, and their decision making is suspect (keeping Denard at QB, moving Gardner to WR).
Personally, I think this is a huge year for Hoke and his tenure up North. Frankly, I don't mind seeing people to pick them to win division or conference - I want to see how well they do under that pressure. My guess is the scUM fan base is going to spend a lot of time this season trying to explain away failures.
He is great at what he does. Completely total intense coach that constantly pushes to get the best out of his players in every possible way. But when it comes to working the coaches, parents and recruits. He looked great out there, making it a point to talk to a ton of people. I can imagine how difficult it must be to remember the names of literally 1000s of people that he meets on a daily basis.. media members, HS coaches, faculty, alumni, parents, past players, etc, etc, etc...
I also thought about how nerve racking it would be to be a 15/16 year old kid out there running drills, having Meyer standing right there watching.
The videos on the big screen were awesome. What a way to get kids to buy into your program. The one video with all of the former players in it was amazing. I really hope the university releases that video at some point. I thought it was awesome.
Can the season just start ALREADY!!
I miss my Kate Upton Picture
Couldn't agree more!
They were stunning indeed!
Your quote reminded me of a comment I heard a fan make...
We were waiting to go in and a couple players from Trotwood went by. The guy next to me said, Did you see the legs on that kid? (referring to his thin calves and ankles.) I don't know... pretty skinny!" To which i assumed he was a Bucknuts guy and I said, "You gotta watch out for skinny ankles." Apparantly he wasn't a Bucknutters because he nodded his head in agreement with all seriousness. LOL!

Or he is one and just knew one rule about bucknuts you talk about bucknuts.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
Corch's calf to ankle proportion ratio is really off the charts.
