Urban Meyer To Make $4,000,000 a Year

29 Nov

Urban Meyer new coach of Ohio State University will be paid for $4 million a year. However, this may end up being a profitable investment on the field, off I’m not so sure.

Urban Meyer’s University of Florida teams weren’t the best behaved group of kids. Thus, for a university that has problems with discipline to hire a guy with questionable player character issues isn’t a good choice. Nevertheless, if we look a pure football performance, it’s hard to question Meyer and his ability to develop and recruit players into great teams.

With an overall coaching record of 104-23 over 10 seasons is good enough for Ohio State. Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith said Meyer was an “outstanding recruiter who can attract some of the best home state players to Columbus”

Michigan RB Coach Wants MSU, OSU

14 Mar

Michigan football over the past few years hasn’t lived up to its storied history as a football powerhouse. Their down fall started under the direction of Lloyd Carr and continued under Rich Rodriguez. This season they are hoping to begin their turn around under new head coach Brady Hoke.

When Hoke was hired, he spoke about bring the tradition back to Michigan Football. Part of that tradition is winning and beating their hated rivals. However, recently many football rivalries were dwindled because of the lack of production of the wolverines. This doesn’t sit well with the new coaching staff. New running backs coach Fred Jackson reflected on losing three games to Michigan State and Ohio State over the last three years.

He said “We’ve got to get back at them.” Though he realizes the past is hard to stomach, he also knows it’s important for future success. Jackson said, “People think we’re knocked down. I’m excited about the attitude and the approach to it. If you walk every day of your life and take certain stuff, you’ve got to get back.”

Report: Kill to Minnesota

6 Dec

The University of Minnesota has reportedly nabbed Jerry Kill as their next head football coach. Kill, who coached Northern Illinois last season, hasn’t had a great coaching career if you look at the number of wins. However, he has revitalized the programs at all the schools he coached at. Minnesota is hoping he can do the same for them. He has a long way to go to get this team competitive.

NCAA College Football Preview

29 Oct

The two games this weekend that everyone seems to be talking about is the Oregon Ducks vs. the University of Southern California Trojans and the Michigan State Spartans vs. the Iowa Hawkeyes. Personally, I think the most fascinating game of the weekend is the Michigan State vs. Iowa game because of the physicality of the Hawkeyes. Michigan State hasn’t faced a team this year that will play them as tough as Iowa will. This game will show how good Michigan State really is or not.

In addition, Oregon will really be tested by a talented USC team. Don’t be surprised to see this game closer than the experts suggest.
