  1. Pete Rose was traded in the 80's from Montreal to Cincinnati to be a player manager for them.
  2. Michigan made informal inquiries to his people but it never amounted to much. By the time Michigan's position opened, Harbaugh had his sights set on the pro's. He would have been Michigan's first choice but the discussions never even made it that far because he was NFL bound. If Michigan had come open a few months earlier, he would have likely ended up at Michigan. However, I feel the lure of the pros would have eventually pulled him t the NFL anyway.
  3. Regardless, Hicks spent time in SW Ohio which is more SEC country than BIG country. OSU does get a few recruits from the area and tries to recruit it hard but as far as fan loyalty, in football they are number 3 in the market behind UC and UK and on par with Notre Dame. In basketball they are like number 5/6 behind UC, UK, Xavier, Dayton, and on par with Indiana as far as loyalty/allegiance.
  4. Yes, but the thing with Hicks is that Ohio State does a notoriously bad job recruiting in Cincinnati. Hicks was from the Cincinnati area so it was easier for him to go somewhere besides Ohio State. Cincinnati is not a big OSU town but the rest of the state is. This is one thing Meyer is trying to change because OSU almost always loses out on the top Cincinnati talent.
  5. I don't think that list was meant to be in any particular order
  6. Better his situation = Head Coach position not Texas OC. Pretty much any OC at a Power 5 school outside of Iowa State or Washington State feels that their coordinator positions are equal to that of Texas. Now realistically the resources re much better in the Lone Star State, but in regards to Morris, the guy makes 1.3 million at Clemson, I think Swinney feels his program is comparable on the field
  7. Just saw that it was announced that Herman is staying at Ohio State on the OSU boards.
  8. Irish, I was just busting on you for your blind loyalty to the ACC. I figured you would not be able to resist my comment. Yes, they have scoreboard rights now, but they are still not a great conference top to bottom. Top to bottom they are behind the SEC, Big XII, PAC and yes even the BIG. This does not mean the BIG is the best either, far from it, but at least I can objectively look at things instead of being an ACC homer. As for ND's national titles over the next 10 years. There will probably not be any. ND was lucky to make it to the NC last year and bama exposed them. I think what this years bowl season showed is that the parity between the conferences is not as wide as we all make it out to be. Would I say he SEC is still the best conference top to bottom, yes, but it is not much different than the number 5 rated conference, the ACC. Is the level of competition comparable in the BIG, ACC, BIG XII and PAC. Yes it is. The nice thing about FSU winning was that unlike the SEC fan who cheers SEC, SEC, SEC, the average ACC fan does not care much about the conference but only their particular school.
  9. Zimmer is the man too. Hope he stays. Gruden was good, but people were frustrated with the way the offense was performing and their inconsistencies.
  10. I hear OSU is determined to match any offer TX would bring to him. Would be tough considering OSU has just as deep pockets as UT and rumor has it that Herman really wants to hold out for a HC position as his next gig.
  11. The fans in Cincinnati wanted to run him after the loss to San Deigo
  12. Really what does Louisville have to lose in this. He has won wherever he has gone except the NFL, he can recruit like none other. He is a great college coach who led Louisville to their Peak in 2006. He wont be as tempted by greener pastures this time because Louisville is in the ACC and not CUSA anymore, he is essentially blackballed in the NFL after the way he left last time, other big universities are wary about him after Arkansas and his carpetbagging ways which keeps him in Louisville for 5 years minimum.
  13. Yes, but it is the ACC and the ACC still sucks a fat one.
  14. THat 2001 Miami team was stacked and they were mostly a young team too. There was an article on CNNSI last year about the 2002 game between Miami and OSU as the greatest BCS game played. It was sick to see the players on both teams who had at least semi significant careers in the NFL.
