Urban Meyer Back at it Again

6 Mar

Ohio State new head football coach is back to what he loves best, recruiting. He has his eyes on the quick, speedy wide receiver LaQuon Treadwell from Crete, Illinois. Treadwell is a 6`3, 185 pound wide receiver that runs a 4.40 40-yard dash.

Treadwell is a prospect in the 2013 class.

Last season, he totaled 75 receptions for 1,400 yards and 18 touchdowns. He is clearly a complete mold of Meyer’s ideal wide receiver.

He has offers from Arkansas, Alabama, Michigan State, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Minnesota, Notre Dame, USC, Illinois, and Oklahoma State.

Ohio State Head Coach Jim Tressel Resigns

30 May

The Columbus Dispatch reportedly obtained a memo from Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee that states Jim Tressel has announced his letter of resignation.

The memo was sent to Ohio State University trustee Monday morning states:

“I write to let you know that later this morning we will be announcing the resignation of Jim Tressel as head coach of the University’s football program. As you all know, I appointed a special committee to analyze and provide advice to me regarding issues attendant to our football program. In consultation with the senior leadership of the University and the senior leadership of the Board, I have been actively reviewing the matter and have accepted Coach Tressel’s resignation.

Assistant Coach Luke Fickell will serve as interim coach all of next season

This news isn’t quite shocking because of the allegations the football program has been under in recent months. However, Tressel made a pact with his star players accused to committed wrongdoings to stay at the program and serve a five game suspension. He was also planned to serve said suspension and return to coach the team afterward.

Below is a video from ESPN looking at the legacy of Tressel coaching career at OSU.

Recruiting Spotlight: Joseph Scelfo

20 Mar

For most college football programs offensive line is their top priority. For one school this won’t be a problem. Whoever signs North Oconee High School’s Joseph Scelfo will get a solid lineman who can play both center and guard. This 6`2 275 pound guard has both power and excellent technique. But more importantly he has great leadership skills and superb academic success (3.43 GPA).

Check him out. Number 66

The cornerstone of any successful team requires a solid group of offensive linemen. This collective group of men is responsible for the success or failure of each offensive play.

He began his high school career as a starting sophomore and never looked back. Scelfo is a leader on the Titans offensive unit. Registering a career high 11 pancakes in a game, Joseph Scelfo is the truth.

As a result of his exceptional play he has been the recipient of All region and All Area awards. His play hasn’t gone unnoticed, schools including UAB, Marshall, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Miami, UL Monroe, MTSU, Furman, Wofford, Syracuse, Samford, UCLA, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech has begun sending him mail.

His sports heroes include Todd Mclure, Tony Gonzalez, Jeff Saturday, Walter Jones, and Chris Scelfo. His play reminds me of linemen like Walter Jones, Jon Runyan, and Larry Allen. This kid has pure talent and an enormous upside. A great addition to whatever university he decides to attend.

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.”

Recruiting Spotlight: Jacob Williams

25 Feb

The great Vince Lombardi once said, “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will.” Well Jacob Williams doesn’t have to worry about that. This 5`8, 155 pound football player is a pure explosive playmaker. He reminds me of players like DeSean Jackson, Percy Harvin, Nnamdi Asomugha, and one of his sports heroes Champ Bailey with his great ball skills and speed.

Williams plays cornerback on the defensive side of the ball and wide receiver in the team’s pistol offense. He also handles the punt and kick return duties for St. Francis. In the 40 yard dash he runs a 4.65. Check out this exceptional player for yourself. Jersey Number: #10

He has received several honors for his play and leadership. He has 3 MVP awards, an Inspirational Player award, and Defensive Back award. Not only is he a great football player, he is a great student as well. Williams has a 3.2 GPA. These accolades haven’t gone unnoticed. Schools like Alberta, Bishop’s, Mount Allison, Waterloo, British Columbia, STFX, York, Western, Toronto, Wilfred Laurier, and Windsor has all shown interest in Williams.
