It's really amazing how anybody can talk bad about that coach after what he has accomplished. You should just be happy about this instead of looking like a fool criticizing the best coach in the land. Yes he'd be considered better than Saban nationwide if he oversigned, cut and grey shirted like him imo.
Hindsight towards the end maybe he shouldve stayed in Florida more. Even though alot of players left early consecutive years. It's kind of hard turning away 5 star players like Shariff Floyd, Will Hill and others whether they pan out or not.
Let's not forget Florida has 7x the talent of Ohio so the comparison is kind of silly. Sticking largely in Ohio would be a mistake. tOSU is aiming for NATIONAL Championships not B1G Championships. Just mainly recruiting Ohio will land you the latter but the former would be highly unlikely.
Sidenote: There were just as many oos star players, if not more, from JT's tenure than in state. And his classes were what? 80%+ Ohio kids?

Good post sir. ASAP is a beast btw
Except when theyre ranking Derrick Green of course
It's not like Scout was the only service to rank Green as a top-10 player or as the #1 RB in the nation. The vast majority of Michigan fans recognize that we didn't have the 2nd-best class in the nation - the fact that Alabama wasn't #1 in Scout's ranking is kind of a joke.
Urban is not better than Saban.
Perhaps the guy who scared the Anzalone family away?

Nah, I mostly go by rivals. Pretty much everybody does.
Rivals has had major success predicting running backs though, so I would say Green has a pretty good chance of ending up the best back in the class.
Scout on the other hand... Rivals pretty much beats them at everything.
Also - Lulz at you thinking Urban > Saban
() () Matthew Stafford (Rivals #6 overall, 2006) and Mitch Mustain (Rivals #10 overall, 2006) With the ESPN150 hot off of the presses yesterday, all four major sites now have an updated Top 150/247/250/300 list available for the 2013 class. I wanted to dive in and look at how each service has performed over the years.

Like Willy said, Urbs better then Saban? You can't be serious. Come back when urbs wins 3 natty's in a 4 year span guy.
He's an EE so no January flip. It would need to take place before he would enroll.
Guy? Yuck. Give Meyer basically 8 more players per class(Saban style)and ill take him over Nick. Cant argue his 4 'ships but he is shady as all hell to get them
Buckeye fan calling another coach and program "shady". That's priceless.
Shane Morris wouldve been a much better example. Rankings should go by the star average imo. I didnt look at USC's class towards the end but at one point it was insane and they had no shot to be #1 bc of quantity
Oh, please, don't blame it on the scholarship numbers. Meyer was at the premier football school in one of the nation's best talent-producing states. Nobody's denying that he's a good coach, but he's not Saban.
For the record, Saban averages about 2 more recruits/class than Meyer did at Florida - not exactly a huge difference:
Saban (at AL):
Meyer (at FLA):
Hell, with the exception of an uncharacteristically small 2009, Meyer averaged 26 recruits/class.
It would be stupid to rank by star average. A class with 2 5-stars and 10 4-stars may have a higher average, but I'll take the class with 18 4-stars and 4 3-stars any day. With the bust rate of college football players and the nature of injuries in the game, tiny classes are (understandably) devalued.
Arent you just doing the same thing? Haha. You know, with your programs past and all
What about our past? Referring to the stretching violations now, are you? If you really want to compare what Tressel did to RR....
Good stuff. Well im going to call it 3. Haha. Still an advantage. And sure Saban is the best with 2 more championships. Just being a little biased saying #2 is better than #1. Sorry
My goodness. You are correct again sir Ive been right on everything else ive ever stated in the history of message boards though!
Extra practice or kids selling things they own? That's a tough one
Fixed. And you're a typical, delusional buckeye.
I always enjoy watching an idiot get bulldozed by stats.
And 26.66 - 24.2 = 2.46. Unsurprisingly, Sonny rounds that up to 3. Nevermind that he ignores the 0.5+ rule.
Instead he probably did 2.46 ---> 2.5 ---> 3

Won't make a huge difference. but Scout has slightly different numbers.
100% correct on all accounts

Maybe OSU shouldn't have passed on Green after all
