Urban Meyer on offering kids:
"there's nothing wrong with offering scholarships to commitments. everyone does it. Now if there's something illegal that's different. But kids have the right to go wherever they want to go where they feel fits best for them. Do I get nervous when a recruit gets offered by another school? Sure I get nervous.....but it's not up to you guys (media) and it's not up to us (coaches)...it's up to these kids and their families and doing what's best for them."
Now that's not word for word.....that's just off what I recall I heard....but it's pretty damn evident why this guy is able to accomplish his goals.
Damn I missed it. Is there anywhere I can watch the video?
A year ago, Bret Bielema was upset, which was understandable given that he'd lost an offensive line recruit to Meyer on signing day. He even decided to cry complain to Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany about it. Mark Dantonio called Meyer unethical. Meyer responded to the complaints: "You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."
Those nine guys are, of course, his assistants. But he could have very well been saying, "The Big 10's got 11 other schools that better learn how to do it because if they don't, they don't stand a chance. They may just as well just roll over and die. This is not my father's Big 10. This is MY Big 10! Get used to it!"
Bosa has been a leader through this entire process. He hates Michigan University, he loves being a Buckeye and hes not afraid to show it. Its going to be tough to pick a "favorite" but I like this kids style. Im psyched about EACH and every one of these guys this year.
I do understand to a lessor extent why some might view it as not being an ethical approach.
For me....I feel that's just an opinion.
How are you going to know if a kid may want to play for you....and you don't offer him a scholarship because he's already committed? That approach doesn't make sense. It really doesn't.
An offer is just that ...... an offer. It doesn't mean that kid is going to automatically drop everything and 'flip' on the spot.....
Contrary most of the late offers to some of these kids....the kids took time to think about their options. Which Meyer feels they should have as many options to chose from.
How in the world are you going to know if you might be interested in The Ohio State University....if you don't even know the school is interested in you?
For some commits it's an automatic to whatever their dream school happens to be....and for others it's a thought and decision process.
Each and everyone is different.....
I appreciate you keeping us posted all day along with some of the other posters. I was at work (factory) refreshing my phone about every 5 minutes or so. Great job today Iowa!
According to the presser, they feel really really really good about the single void they have left to fill today.

EZE is official

am i grasping at straws here, but i found it sort of interesting that on the espn ncaa football page, they have hats for:
alabama, florida, ole miss, auburn... and ucla.
gotta sell their product i guess?
I think I heard this morning out of the ESPN 300. over 1/3 of the players are committed to SEC Schools so its really not surprising.
There is NO doubt he is the Sheriff
EZE's LOI is in, per Pantoni...that's 19 today + 5 Early Enrollees
I'm at a loss of words on today's revelations and potential impact!!
I am blown away and simply can wait until practice starts. Can't wait to see all this speed/ talent
implemented and these boys hit the field.
BuckNasty is all about The Buckeyes!!!
Buck_Nasty's speechless? I never thought I'd live to see the day!
Thank you, Urban Meyer!
