Why interview Michigan? Nobody wants to hear about the second best recruiting team in the Big Ten. Don’t be so angry Scott.

i guess who you ask about the best recruiting in big ten.? i know one thing michigan got more recruit from ohio than urban did??? thats funny ya he is a hell of a recruiter but not in ohio:) everybody jumps on urbans bad wagon for everything he could have the worst class in big ten and because its urban it would be the best class its BS.

dont get me wrong i thought tressel was a hell of a good coach and great person and he recruited very well but he didnt even get the hype that urban is getting. its all because of the name???? but names dont win plyers win..

Urban Meyer had the nations #2 consensus class and just went 12-0 in his first season as head coach at Ohio State. I don’t see any problem with the hype he is receiving. It is warranted.

Also, Ohio State landed 3 of the top 4 players in Ohio in 2013. Congrats on Dymonte Thomas though. He’s a great player
