Tebow-Mania

10 Jun

Is the Tebow bandwagon starting up again? Or is this another Bill Belichick mind game? Nonetheless Belichick has finally got the QB he wanted years ago.

As the trend if the running QB continues in the NFL, Bill Belichick could be reaching into his bag of tricks to propel the New England Patriots aging offense. Or he could possibly be grooming the Pats QB of the future.

Josh McDaniels drafted Tebow and got production from him. So this gamble may end up working for the Pats.

If anything it would be interesting.

Spring Football

4 May

I have been away from my blogging duties and I am extremely sorry to my loyal followers. Last year I took a head coach job at the age of 24. Needless to say, I was busy studying, making mistakes, and trying to rebuild the program.

Since my staff and I have found stable ground I look forward to blogging again. This first post is a collection of videos I’ve been studying this spring to improve my team.





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.

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”

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.
