What if recruits had to play in their own state of birth and coaches had to coach in their own home state? It is my beliefs that Ohio State would absolutely dominate college football year in and year out and I don't think it would be all that difficult either. I say so simply because Ohio is one of the 5 top high school football states and we don't have any other major in state school to compete with. I know Florida, texas and California produce twice as many players as we do but they each have 3 major schools to battle over recruits. Alabama has two schools and also they don't produce as many players as Ohio, the same can be said with Georgia. I believe the only question is who would we want our coach to be Meyer or tressel

You are absolutely right my friend. My mistake.
What if cat, c-a-t, actually spelled dog, d-o-g ?
Talent would be nice but just think about that coaching staff.
Meyer - Head coach
B. Stoops - Off Coord / WR's
Pelini - Def Coord / CB's
M Stoops - Safeties
L Fickell - LB's
Hoke - Def Line
Jim Harbaugh - QB's
John Harbaugh - RB's
Les Miles - OL
Or Stoops too
BAN... I call for a BAN of this poster

If you play by the rule laid out in the OP, none of those guys would be affiliated with UM in the first place. We wouldn't know the difference.
I hate when people use logic on the internet
However, that would also mean that Craig Krenzel would have played for scum or scum light...
But... those teams were both too stupid to use him like we did, so we are good.

Fun topic. No doubt we would have the best coaches.
However, Texas, Florida, and California all have 3x the talent of Ohio not 2x. Yes I've actually researched this. Whether you go by number of 4 star+ recruits or NFL draft picks they have about 3x the talent. CA has 4 BCS schools, Florida has 3, Texas now has 5, but Texas and A&M clearly have the most pull. With Miami on penalty watch, FSU and Florida may do very well for awhile. The school that might just have the most talent could be LSU.
From 1998 to 2012:
745 NFL draft picks played high school football in California
624 played in Texas
583 played in Florida
306 in Georgia
258 in Ohio
251 in Louisiana
185 in Virginia
184 in PA
178 in North Carolina
178 in Alabama
158 in TSUN
157 in Illinois
150 in South Carolina
149 in New Jersey
137 in Mississippi
124 in New York
No other states were over 100
Here's a great graphic from USA, which allows you to search NFL draft picks by state, position, and conference.
If you search by conference, you'll find that the SEC has only slightly had more NFL draft picks than the Big 10. They've also had 1-2 more teams during most of the last 15 years.

Exactly. They'd have all been Buckeyes.
Hoke couldn't coach the entire dline. Only the noseguards remember. Maybe we could use him as a team cook or a ga.
