Haven't had time to check in on other teams.. how'd everyone fare?

We had our best class in decades.  Excited.  Stay tuned... I think my wish for a new OC is about to come true.  Yeah.

Sending good mojo for your wish for a new OC Bean.

Here are the rankings, ESPN's and Rivals differ a wee bit but I think (for once) that ESPN is likely right.

FSU is #1
Bama is #2
Auburn is #3

One big surprise in the SEC was the loss of the top RB in the draft who all seemed a slam-dunk for Bama but at the last minute he chose UGA who does indeed need a good RB. Kid should play right away.

The total rankings list is here - http://insider.espn.go.com/college-football/recruiting/classrankings?&action=login&appRedirect=http%3a%2f%2finsider.espn.go.com%2fcollege-football%2frecruiting%2fclassrankings

We were #22 on ESPN, #20 on Scout, and #28 on Rivals -- we filled our needs pretty well!

I noticed that wreck, good job ! Son spent a day with one of your coaches reviewing possible recruits and he said OSU had a good plan in place. Now the hard part is waiting 3 years to see how this class pans out.

Can you say what coach your son met with? We are getting kind of antsy waiting on Gundy to name our new OC. I'm actually starting to really believe it might be Mike Leach. I'm still not sure if I like the idea, but it would be pretty awesome for a year if nothing else than to mentor a successor. The man is "certifiable", but one heck of an offensive mind and would bring continuity from Holgerson!

   Wreck... I think Leach would be a hoot... I didn't realize you were still without an OC... dang we are looking to now.  finally.  Tom Osborne - I adore - but he is too nice... never fires anyone.  Our coaches' contracts expire Feb 12th and that is what we waited for... expiration vs firing. 

So everyone knows we are looking but Bo who isn't good with the press anyway has to tapdance for weeks... this is ugly.  We are hoping to get Scott Frost, former player who is at Oregon.  Hometown hero thing.  We shall see...

We just lost one of our best coaches (secondary) to a scandal and we had no choice but to let him go 'spend time with his family'.  Damn he was a good coach.

Hello Frijole & Monkey's,


I am a Steeler fan but I also admire the Packers. 
I thought this article was great - because how some little gesture leads to something big.


 
In 1919, Curly Lambeau decided to start a football team in the small Wisconsin town of Green Bay. Akron, Canton, Dayton, Hammond and Muncie all had teams, so it wasn't a stretch for Lambeau to start a franchise in his hometown. He just needed some funding to get off the ground.

At the time, Lambeau was earning $250 per month as a shipping clerk at a local meatpacking company. He convinced his employer to put up $500 for jerseys and equipment and also got permission to use the company's athletic field for practice. With all that support from the packing company, it was a natural that the team call itself the Packers

It was Barr - can't say why they met except that it was due to review of some possible recruits. If you hire Leach as the OC you'll have to make sure the DC can mesh the defense with him, expect that would be the challenge beyond having the personnel capable of transitioning to a high-octane Leach offense.

love your avatar seahorse 

great story, I miss how a good idea, work ethic, and dedication used to be enough to launch a great business in our country. Sadly it's no longer the case very often.

None...the guy was a player for us and then one fantastic coach....took our secondary to new heights.  His bad decisions were off the field and I'm not going there.  Scandal was a bad word on my part.  No one wanted him to be gone.  He'll get a chance again and hopefully will learn. 

Meanwhile they are restructuring on both sides.  Since there are no openings yet (contract dates) Bo is saying there are no openings/firings etc.  They are calling him "Bonocchio".

Thank-you for the compliment on the avatar, the Beanie-Copter was designed by Brandi. Wink
Yes, a good idea still works.  I believe imagination is not taught. The Europeans believe in imagination for making money.
This is why so many Europeans are so successful, my opinion, it is good imagination and a good work ethic.

We are already running Leach's high-octane offense! Dana Holgerson (our last OC) was Leach's man at Texas Tech.

i am alive....just have been afraid to get out much.  we have had 2 good snowfalls and there are chances this week on 2 different days.....crazy ark weather!!!
orthopedic surgeon gave me the ok to return to work monday....yippee...but cannot lift anything heavier than 2 lbs with my left arm and he said he was 95% sure he could put up his knife!!!!
mitch mustain sure did screw his life up....if he only had sucked it up his freshman year......hard to believe he fell that far though!
supposedly, we had a top 20 recruiting class which means nothing since it is only 6th best in the sec....sigh!
superbowl...don't really care much....guess i will pull for the packers!

It warmed up to 49 degrees in Dallas today. It did wonders to improve our snow and ice problem for the Super Bowl.

I was mad at the Steelers for beating the Jets, but still wanted them to win today. Oh, well.
I enjoyed the game, and although the acoustics left a lot to be desired, the Black Eyed Peas rocked and so did Usher.

OK... I am going to have to look into getting a job as a bowl commissioner... 600k + to plan ONE bowl game.  I think I'd do a great job.  Not for profit my azz.
