"Our best guy coverage spring game post game show. Thanks to Bill. Carleen Eric resear- for hanging out with me. We'll be wrapping up air here. Just reading on Twitter that tape Martell spring game didn't go. Well, I guess this is Miami quarterback Tate mortels being boot for his performance during the spring game. A little extreme ever you'd like southern hospitality. But that's what's so much fun about Twitter eighteen Niamey fans on hand for spring game. Yeah. Yeah. I I hope boy. I hope that's not true. I mean, you know, say what you want about t I that would be a little harsh. Game performance. Although our very first question today was feeling Justin field is wildly inaccurate. And he may be, but I I don't know that you can judge a lot from from today. But bottom line Bill what I don't know Ryan day wanted to accomplish over fifteen days and fifteen practices and what he got today. What what do you think he probably feels best about at this stage? And as he gets ready for the long off season here. And then of course, getting ready together for fall camp. He's very confident is is athletes. You know, he's very very confident. He has athletes compla- the game. You know, there's talent is here. And he's got the potential to develop this team into something special. Dislike all coaches want to feel and you know, what if you got some new faces on off. Office of side. Okay. It's better. Tell him is a coach is better to have the majority of best players back on defense because they can keep in in the football game. And then special teams, and you can take good talent. If they grow the way think they can you very happy as a coach Sam on Twitter, we mentioned this earlier, but very impressed with what I saw from Garrett Wilson, a true freshman that will certainly make an impact Zach Harrison will make an impact on defense, those are two of the younger early enroll, these what do you think? I mean, I certainly believe that girl Wilson for sure is going to be an impact player on offense. Absolutely. I think under urban Meyer. And now under Ryan day, they've done a great job of recruiting to their needs. And that's what we're seeing. Now guys that come in early play. Yeah. Zach Harrison, by the way. The the black stripe thing Eric Friday. He got his black stripe taking off on Friday tough. Just because of on the defensive side is a lineman. They're not pending their ears back in. They're not going there. Just keep containing get to your sinement beat the guy off the ball. But Zac Harrison just the look of the guy looked like he belonged out there with the big uglies. Yeah. And which is important for a guy who's a freshman. Well, his athleticism. Zach Harrison's is ridiculous. I mean, this is a guy that ran track and was at what is he six six or six. He's I mean, just that alone jumps off the page at you. When you look at a kid like that. And you know, before you give him the strength program you before Mickey Mouse, really, you know, it gets his hands on and we should mention that too. I mean, you know, we heard K J hill talking about all the extra work that they're going to do on their own but also making Muratti summer conditioning when that comes up how important are those months that he has with those guys? Absolutely. We're recruit guys say the Tamaam say now remember come Christmas when you buy your son shirts get to next is last year. Well, I love that. They put off on social meal out of times, they'll put before and after pictures like when a guy gets there, and what they look like Bill they come in. They're they're highly skill high school athletes, not like their fat cheap kids. They're in shape, but there's just something different about when a strength and conditioning coach like making Rodriguez hold nutrition. But those two.

"Guys won't miss a couple of bucks. Buckeyes put it on my helmet. Bob, Warren came sat down looked at the time. Does it? Hey, buck. Are you guys Danny, Danny? Fifty three. Buck is just it goes to show how important. I didn't have a lot. But I I guess I got my fair share. I would say so so the guys this year who are you going to be looking to corral in the buckeyes for their home? It's a great question initially. I thought it was the Wayne has that we were gonna vista mostly the accuracy from that quarterback position touchdowns eight interceptions. The numbers were outstanding. But after last weekend and watching the buckeyes blazed the scene with how fast I why receivers and even Mike Weber random forty badge. I think the challenge is going to be replacing the offencive speed that we lost. Because you know, you guys know in football. That's a huge thing. When you have wide receivers run with the football Africa catch and watching all three of those guys run as well as they did I'm curious to see if we have the same amount of speed in the locker room and could we have those big plays that come from just six yard throw. You know, when they start practice here and what twenty fifteen minutes E, there's so many storylines this spring. Stan you got a new head coach and Ryan day. You got the transfer quarterback. Justin fields battling with Matthew Baldwin got a basically an entire new defensive coaching staff position battles. You're talking about the loss. Speed position battles all over the place early enrolled freshmen like that wide receiver. Garrett Wilson Owen Zach Harrison to the top recruits in the country. What are the what is the important storyline in your mind? What are you going to be looking at the most over the next month? Kadi replace the icon. How do you replace a legend? I'm not talking about the quarterback had one sensational season urban Meyer below ground the sidelines. Even with the first three games last year. The second the two games he was in locker room at practice every day. But now his presence is gone, and you've got to maintain this high level of play. And that's a lot of pressure because they as good of a coach if he is he's never been a head coach. And then you bring into assistance better from that team up north. And so can you continue to be consistent winning football games? We urban Meyer has and I've talked about this at length fat co stake goes and two in his first three years in one of those losses in two of the seasons is to Michigan. I'm not sure that's a successful campaign. And so for me, my money is how do you replace a legend in urban Meyer and stay at a high level because what he did here. Just unbelievable. You look at that too. I mean, you know, you go back to trestle you talk about, you know, urban Meyer. You know, the Ohio connection to I mean ee play that forward, and you see how these people are beloved. And we just don't know how we're gonna feel about coach day. Yeah. We don't. But but the good news is that. It'd be win football games will. Coach Cooper's not at Ohio guy. I know he's got somewhat of a dicey reputation. But in the years, he was love here. So you just have to win football games. You have to continue to recruit at a high level. And if you can get your offense to be explosive as it was a year ago. I think the fans will figure out how to love know, how stand you followed up a quarterback when you became the starting quarterback Bob wing who had set records the year before you became the starter. So now, you got Justin fields likely maybe Matthew Baldwin who are following up after Dwayne Haskins. What would you tell those guys about the job that they are battling foreign about to inherit? What advice would you give them following up a guy that had a legendary season? Try not to be Dwayne asking me because you can't follow that up. There was no way in the world that I could do the things that Bob pointed, you know, but I had special skill sets that were different and you have to take advantage of your skills sets of his Justin feels. Bearable run the football. You know, you just you just want to move to change and be consistent. What are the things? We're able to do pensively was our first fifteen possessions. We scored affect out and that kind of took the pressure off lasted as we were able to rely on a really good defense. So provoke those quarterbacks don't try to be Dwayne Haskins. You don't have to throw the ball over the yard touchdown. Thirty touchdowns is a lot college football. We'll all be excited about that. And play your game. And if you do that allow the game to come see you don't make a bunch of us for states. You'll have a lot of sense. On some level stand. That's pretty easy to say. But I mean, you gotta play the team on the field. But if you're coach day, you're competing against the coaches that came before you if you're going to be Justin fields as the starter, you're competing not only against doing Haskins, but J T Barrett. Those two guys did it a high level completely different. How do you carve your own way in that field? Again. You don't you just you do it your way think about the number difference between fifty touchdowns touchdowns for J T Barrett having this year. So you just do it your own way. But at the end of the day, there's only one thing that matters if you win football games, then you will win the crowd over. And that's the channel suggested feels if he throws ten touchdowns next year and the team is undefeated and they're playing for national championship. He will be beloved think about what car Dow Jones. Did he only started three games here? The year we won the national championship. But people still love him. So you just have to do it your way because we try to force things down the field that you try to beat the way Haskins. If you try to be Jesse berry, it doesn't work out and you end up losing. Game that you shouldn't Maryland are Purdue then you're going to tarnish your reputation. So you have to be yourself. No matter what stand before I let you go got to ask you, you mentioned the NFL combine, and you know, Paris Campbell run on a four three two and Terry MacLaurin of four three five I noticed the NFL network yesterday put out an all combine offensive team. Five of them were Ohio State players Mike Weber Dwayne Haskins MacLaurin Campbell and Mike Jordan. How much does that performance? The that Ohio State players had at the NFL combine affect recruiting and what Brian days now, we're going to try to do to lure players to Ohio State. Well, it shouldn't because individual player should know that this. These are individuals skill sets that don't often show up on the field. But it helps because everybody's watching and what really helps find those guys moving up the trap board. So now, you have three buckeyes going to first round and the other on a second. Then that's something that you can spread around the country is your recruiting people. But I got to tell you about the bigger question is how did we ever lose game? I'm with you. You said was before last season. Even started STAN if we lose games, it's on the coaches, maybe that's why urban is gone. The fire the greatest coach. Listen, I get it. But I got fired just a few months ago job. And I was told that they had to put the the real eighteen back together. They said Jackson. You gotta go pack, and I gotta get McCoy back with Joel. It's nice that you got a good attitude about it's all I know Stanley and looking forward to it spring football Stanley Jackson, Matt McCoy on NewsRadio six ten.

"Back inside the huddle like us on Facebook. At inside the huddle w k. Hey, welcome back to inside the huddle in this last thirty minutes. We'll talk a little major league baseball and early signing period. A couple of interesting comments that came out of a high of states press conference today for national signing day one Greg Madison spoke to the media said he was a hard decision to leave Michigan. But he really wanted opportunity to be a coordinator again, as we have mentioned it certainly didn't help that. He got a huge pay raise almost three times what he was making it Michigan. He's making more than five hundred thousand dollars. So that goes a long way Justin field spoke to the media at Ohio state's press conference for national signing day. He mentioned that there's a lot of hate for Michigan. I don't I don't. I mean, I have to read the entire interview. But you know, I guess he's indoctrinated pretty quickly or just telling people more likely what they wanna hear. Because I can't imagine Justin fields has a lot of hate for Michigan already third thing. L washington. Former Michigan linebackers coach who took the same position at Ohio State admitted that wins Zach Zach Harrison originally committed to Ohio State that he was pretty bummed about it because he thought that he was going to get him in Michigan. And now it's worked out where L Washington is Attleboro state. And so is that garrison so couple of fun tidbits? We learned from Ohio states press conference here today. All right. So today is national signing day, and it used to be met with such huge fanfare the the decisions that guys made the, you know, the national signing day surprises. Now there have been a couple a five star wide receiver flipping from Auburn to Georgia. And and you know, they're Michigan's waiting on. You know, could they get Kaelin Jackson? A running back that's possible. But there's not a lot a lot of happens in December. And so are six on six question is now that this has happened. Now, this has been the last couple of years of the early signing period versus the late signing period. Has this been good for college football? And more importantly good for the recruits that this sought to benefit when answer adopted in early signing period two years ago. And I would say, you know, looking at it from where I'm sitting. You know, it's it's certainly has made them it certainly made them has has given recruits an option to sign early. But I think the part of this that is just sped up the process it's force kids to to take their visits earlier. It's forced them to make these decisions where if they don't if they don't commit in December. If they don't sign eleven ten in December. There's no guarantee there's going be a spot available for them in February. Which was really the intent. I think the intent was to. To to give these kids and opportunity to get a break from the recruiting calls to get a break from the the the media calls all the things that they have to deal with. I just I think it's worked out better for the schools that it necessarily has worked out better for the student athletes. What do you guys think I think I think it's actually a really good start still, you know, I think he talked to recruits. I mean, the fact that twenty five out of Michigan's twenty seven commit sign in early signing period suggests an eighty five percent of top one thousand recruits overall sign in the early signing period. I think it suggests that this is something the players wanted. You know? And I think I don't think it should be November because that's still the middle of their high school seasons. But I think a lot of players really like the Finnish football sign if they're good enough. Do the all American bowl. And then you're done. You know, there's no there's no more messes. No more visits. You're not getting thirty phone calls a day because we talked about it. Each each school that you're like a major target for has two or three coaches on you. And then they also have probably four or five or six reporters, depending on what the what the program looks like and what they're following is. So it's economic up if you have a top five heading into January February that's a lot. So I think it's good. I do wonder if the incidental a because you got to think at this point. They're aware the hypocrisy that coaches can leave whenever and the players can't. So I wonder if they changed the language. I it sets up an interesting precedent. But I wonder if they changed the language for early Siamese and say. You know, if if a coach leaves. That was your position coach that was your head coach. And then head coaches, certainly an argument he can make you have a exemption, and you can re-sign in February or April. I don't know. That's just me spitballing ideas. But that's really the only part of it that I think will commonly come up is when you signed, but then the coaching carousel changes or has a different different. I think honestly, it should be if your position coach leaves anytime before your enrolled. Yeah. At that that that school that you signed a letter of intent with you should be able to leave and and change your mind. I mean, especially a head coach, but a position coach to especially, you know, a guy that's been recruiting you. That's a big part of it. And you're right. I mean, these guys I it's coaches now wait until before these to wait until February, and they would leave after February and go somewhere else after they'd just signed someone. Now, they leave after Indus now that even late December January and move on to different places after they've. Just signed a kit, and how is that fair to the student athlete. And it's interesting how the made this rule to to hope to help soon athletes and yet who keeps on take who figures out more quickly than anyone else. How to take advantage of it? It's the programs themselves, and so they've taken advantage of it. So, yeah, if you sign it a lot of intent in your head coach go somewhere else the kids at signed with, you know, Manny Diaz, and then he goes on to Miami. Averaging one of those kids should be able to be released from a lot of intent if they want to it's simple. It's it's don't punish don't punish the student athlete for something that you won't punish the coach for exactly. And so I think the other one that that you kind of touched on, and obviously it's been an issue for Michigan this week with a Mark Petchey Hickson is the the spot discussion. And that's that is something to you know, I it's worth evaluating. But it doesn't seem to be common. Like, I'm not seeing a ton of places where. Guys are getting pinched out like this. And by the way, past kicks and did end up at Kansas nearby school, very close to his hometown. He's going to be a running back there. So big twelve school. I know people are down on Kansas. But you know. Glad glad he's gonna guess scholarship. He's going to be close to his family's gonna play running back. But yeah, this far as this whole spot. I don't think that's quite common enough. But yeah, the the the fact that you're. Pressured to sign early and that's is schools do pressure players to sign early. And then you're kinda stuck no matter. What happens? I mean, not just coaches, but like sanctions if a like, Missouri, for example, think about their signees suddenly now it's only one year, and they're appealing it. But you know, the bowl band that didn't come 'til after. So I think there should be. I don't know why the incident delayed induced before. I think there should always be an opportunity for players to get out of these letters of intent for 'cause right? If something happens, I I don't know who decided no letter of intense binding, no matter what happens you can't leave. I'm not sure what the principle of that is. But the coaching went obviously, you saw some schools. I mean temple did try to do it's coaching to their credit. They tried to like the as in before the signing date. So that you know to help the student athletes and then ended up going to Miami. That's that's a, but I think the fact that the season is over and you have players locked into sign signing. I think that's that's the hypocrisy. I see that you know, teams and coaches, can do whatever why shouldn't the players right until and it's interesting because as as as much as we've talked about how college football has changed and how you have to adapt as a fan. Until there is some type of even status for the student, athletes, and the coaches to have the same opportunities. I mean until the it's tilted a little bit more fifty fifty here that to me is when anytime that they keep on adding these rules to help soon. Athletes is why it's hard for us to sit here and go like, no, a guy's gotta do. This guy's got to do that. Because of the system still favors the program, and the coaches, and certainly yes, you want to go back and talk about the team a team a team and you wanna talk about. Well, this is the way that it was in the seventies and eighties and the nineties, and I bet you you you talked to a lot of players from those areas will say yes, we believed in this team of team team. But now when you look at it, we also recognize that we were kind of taking advantage of we were put in a situation that wasn't in our best interest. And that's really what this is supposed to all be about a, you know. Devin Gardner, joking with me about you know, maybe breaking my toe in an hey, go out there and play the second half against Ohio State with the same thing. I mean, he has said repeatedly the doctors cleared him to play he probably should not have been playing in that game with a broken foot. And yet the doctors cleared him and put them back out there why because the program their number one priority is the program and not necessarily student athletes. And so yeah, there there needs to be a there needs to be some watch. I'm surprised honestly that it hasn't happened yet. Hopefully by the momentum is there that the effort to come. But absolutely, right. You know, and and and the whole thing with Krahn hidden ever. I was like what about the team the team the team the team that matters to him has got to be his family. You know, first and foremost, and and you know, I don't want to open up the skin the ballgame can of worms, but. Yeah. Your your team is your family, everyone every human being I hope has that mentality. I can't even imagine someone putting their company or their employment over there over their family. It's just that's very bizarre. So, you know, do what's best for you and your family? This is this is not like, it's not the same thing as as you or I going off to college. Like, you know, it's it's a scholarship. It's an opportunity. It's a chance in a lot of cases at making a living off of football as a player as a coach, you know, to get that get that foundation. It's a fantastic opportunity in it shouldn't be. It shouldn't be a situation where people are like unhappy with how it goes. I mean, I would love to scholarship, but I can understand where these players it's like well cash they lead me on and next thing. I know the my two primary recruiters, I don't think Michigan's defensive linemen are are necessarily upset. But it's like, you don't think they're looking at Al Washington and Greg Madison at their press conference in Columbus today, and are like you kidding me? Like how much did you tell me about how long were staying at Michigan? How much you loved Michigan? And either you lied or you just decided, you changed your mind. And I don't get to do that. I'm stuck at Michigan. Whether now again, I know stuck might not be the best word because it's seems like Don Brown still here Jim Harbaugh still here. But yeah, I think there is momentum for it to change. Just like, I think there's gonna be some momentum to change the transfer..

"Thank you, Ivan. It's such an incredible deal for premium made-to-measure suit well done, Josh macaroni. So well done for a bunch of these other classes as well. LSU with a top six class, Clemson, Oklahoma. Of course, got the early boost in the day with Jeremiah credential, number four athlete number sixty one overall is he picks Oklahoma over Oregon. He wasn't former Oregon commit you've got Texas at nine Notre Dame at ten Ohio State lost a quarterback to win Mathis flipped to Georgia. But again, they did cap off the day with Zach Harrison the top ten player defensive in from instate. What about some programs here? Tom van hair? We'll start with you that that have some work to do in that probably wish to Wednesday when a little bit better. Well, we talked about Florida having some positivity. I think Florida state is on the other end of the spectrum there. And they there was just we did. Mention Florida state once yesterday the only time we did was because they lost ESPN three hundred quarterback Sam how old North Carolina. It just I it's just a strange recruiting class for them. After what happened on the field? This is the second losing Sam how this is the second class in a row they haven't signed a quarterback, and that that's devastating that is devastating. And that doesn't mean that they can't sign one in January. Sure. But when you look at where they are at that position. You look at where Florida state is in the offensive line. And you look out how little they improved that area of their football team in this class. I it it is quite alarming. I think the other team that I would look at is is UCLA. And and I and I say UCLA because I'm just so curious to watch this mode of operation that chip Kelly has decided to take in publicly acknowledged in relationship to slowing everything down not offering any prospects prior today one of their ju the fall of their junior season. Can this be done in our climate in my opinion? He may actually be the only conference where could possibly work not saying it will work. Work where it could possibly work. If he tried this mode of operation in the SEC. They would be toast. Yeah. It would be over before it starts. So I listen, I admire and I also believe that many of of of the things that chip Kelly staffer trying to accomplish are the actual correct way about going to do about doing this. The problem is viable can it work in today's climate to slow play. When everything is about, you know, the early identification process getting out and getting on these kids identifying who your your guys are making those overtures getting guys on campus. Are they capable of taking that and completely reversing field? And then still having the caliber of player signed with them that can compete with the better teams, not only in the Pac twelve but nationally and nobody's osy answer to that question. That's what made yesterday for UCLA. Just so mind boggling to me and what what's. A little bit more concerning with me or the question that I still have to is that chip Kelly's been out of college football now for a while. So he doesn't have those relationships still to to rely on or fall back on. And I just wonder if that's gonna work if had he been in the college football world right before this came the UCLA and had that strategy. Sure. It might have worked a little bit better. But he still building relationships. Yeah. You know, and that that's concerning for me in real quick met with Florida state. Tom mentioned they can still land the quarterback in January. That is true. The however the pool has diminished big time drastically, you might be going farther down your board. There are only two unsigned four-star quarterbacks left, which is incredible. And this crop of quarterbacks. No disrespect. I mean, it's it wasn't an elite crop. I mean is that a fair is that a fair assessment Tom this crop of two thousand nineteen th the highest rated quarterback. Well, I I think we've become so conditioned the last couple of years to to see Jake Frahm to see Trevor Lawrence to see Jalen hurts to a tongue of a some of these freshmen come in and make a huge impact. That's a little bit. More of a statistical blip..

"The clock in the morning. I do for you, man. Especially be my socks either. I'm not gonna get into that with you. All right. Let's get into this recruiting class shall we top fifteen class. You just heard Ryan day during the news saying we didn't have a lot of spots open or else. It would be higher is is that the truth here or did the buckeyes miss out on some things because usually it's a top five class. Well, I don't I don't think it missed out on anything. I think you're caught in that transitional period that you know, there are a couple of decommit because of urban retirement, but at the same time, you did have some kids commit right after urban retired. So I think it's just a new regime coming in. I don't put in again, it's early signing day. Also, remember that? So you still have more coming in February. So the rank could very well go higher. But right now, they're listed at twelve with the big ten rank third behind Michigan and Penn State, but there's a lot of good kids in this class. And obviously Zach Harrison is the big one talk prospect at Ohio mean this kid's in animal, man. And he's explosive on the outside Russia's the edge. But he had he narrowed it down from Ohio State and Penn State Michigan and finally made the announcement yesterday, which was pretty cool the place when absolutely not. But overall I'd say they got a pretty good looking class. There's some good players that are that have committed as of yesterday. How big of a big of a get is that for Ryan days. Harrison, this guy pretty much. Everybody was saying Michigan one hundred percent the whole way through then all of a sudden Michigan gets a beatdown by the buckeyes and he flips over to Ryan. Well, I think it would have been more of a I I don't consider it a huge get because he was right here in our backyard. I think it would have been bigger he gone in Michigan to be honest. I mean, that'd be he was going to he was supposed to. I mean, it was by all accounts. All these crystal ball predictions. It was a done deal. Well, I think those crystal balls were cloudy. I don't think he ever was really gonna go that way. I mean, there was were part of me that thought he might. But I I find it hard to believe that that he was going to go straight up north. I think that some that he was caught to and got convinced that you know, Ryan day is a good coach. And this is still a good program. And we've seen what they're capable of especially with this offense with Ryan day. And and Michigan saw first hand on the last week and then in November. But you know, you don't crystal balls go blow him, I mean, you know, you have some of these kids this star quality you buy star four star three star. It's almost like the NFL draft. You have these guys are like, yeah. He's gonna be all world ends up being. A bust. And then you have free star kids that are like Michigan state like look at on bell four star. Now look at him. And you know, how he's crews on the NFL. Let's get rid of this past year. But it's a it's a solid group. We're talking to the artist formerly known as my campaign. I can't be let me ask you this. You know, you just mentioned three stars recruiting processes so overblown in dramas ties. And would rather get some three stars who are hungry because a lot of these stars are based on how many camps these guys go to where it's based on body frame. What's their size? What's their speed? And it's not so much based on are. They a good football player. I see more three stars. Your Baker mayfield's. You just mentioned on bell. I see more three stars out there making headway in college and pro football than I do. I see a lot of five store flops to be honest with you. I I think we go to crazy over this stuff. Yeah. I I would agree with you. In fact, one three star prospect that I'm I personally am interested in seeing is with Mike Weber deciding to go pro we, you know, higher speed at two one thousand yard back over the last couple of years with Mike Weber and j k Dobbins with Weber going saying he wants to try to play on Sundays Marcus Crowley is three star running back from Jacksonville, Florida. And I'm telling you bloom this kid's pretty good. We talk. To Jeremy Birmingham yesterday on one five seven the zone yesterday afternoon. He's with Letterman row, and he was saying three star from Jacksonville Florida is different than a three star anywhere else. No, again, we're talking about that level, and how you gauge stars. But if you think of the amount of athletic, ability and talent that is in that pool in Florida, Marcus Crowley, could be something special. But again, it's it's it's a script that yet to be written. You know, we have the guys some of the guys in place. It's just to see how these kids merge into the system about wide receiver Garrett Wilson, what do you like about this guy? Oh my God. He's an animal. I can tell you that right now. I mean, he's good. He's good size is six one one eighty one. But after Mickey Mariotti gets his hands on them. You know, you're looking at him being around two hundred pounds. But he's got good speed good hands. Bryant heartline is you know, full-time on board. Now as wide receivers coach you're going to see some of his routes improve. But you know, he's one of the highest touted receivers coming out of this high school class at lake Travis, Texas, and we know that Ohio State is dipped into that, Texas, especially going back to JK Dobbins. You see what he's capable of as running back. But I lay Garrett Wilson I also like the other wide receiver. They got Jameson Williams. He's a four star out of Saint Louis. This is another kid good size. Good hands playmaker out in the open field. And if if Ohio State continues to run the scheme to running now and a lot of cross. Passing routes and give these kids the ability to make plays. You could continue to see the the most you know, some explosive plays out this offense. And the other thing is bloom. I wanted to bring it keep in mind too that the quarterback situation could change to with a big with the big story with doin Mathis with from Ohio State to Georgia. But Justin field who is the number one recruit in two thousand eighteen and was at Georgia decided to transfer now it's open for him to talk to people. And he narrowed his choices down to Florida state, Oklahoma and Ohio State. I gotta tell you talking to Jeremy Birmingham. Again, he says this kid is every bit of a he called him. A did Shawn Watson redo, and I and he said that this is the talk about Justin fields coming to Columbus is a real thing. And if he does so you may have to make room for this kid, and I don't know if he's going to be if he's going to be a redshirt or if he's going to. If he's gonna apply, I guess lawyers involved or regarding hardships. Because apparently there was he's claiming the word was used. It was inappropriate, you know, his coaches as you know, is a black quarterback. But the other thing is that if you if he can come back, you know, if he if he doesn't you saw the shape Patterson thing within going, you know, leaving because you freeze deal. So. Same attorney to. Yeah. And the other thing that you should keep in mind. You know, who is quarterback kit coaches the saints quarterback coach of Dwayne Haskins. There you go. Hey, we gotta get going camping. I'm gonna I'm gonna jump back with you at about twenty after eight if that's possible. All right. Yeah, I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm heading to the gym right now. But it should be you don't work out. Come on. I'll talk to you right now. All right. That is the artist formerly known as Mike campaign, and hopefully, we'll get him back on talk more a little bit later. Let's go to Alison right now. What's going on the news? If you plan to hit the road to head out for the holiday, you might see some lower gas prices. They no longer have to defect to come play baseball. The MLB in Cuba are reaching an agreement. And it's a holiday baking disaster. Broken hershey. Kisses have cookie bakers bitter. A look at that coming up at the top of the hour. Okay.

"Join in. So obviously today is early signing day. We saw earlier that Zach Harrison defensive end out of volunteer. Angie, orange committed to OSU today pretty strong. I spoke with Steve hell wagon from button. And I had a really good conversation with him. And here he is on. Well, Steve you feel good about the LSU early signing day, and how Ryan days job how how good of a job is he doing think for Ryan day taking over the program from urban Meyer. Had a great seven year run. Obviously, the head coach there were a lot of questions about the transition and how things were going to go. You know, people are concerned will continue to win at the amazing pace. I think a ninety one percent winning percentage is what urban Meyer put up, but a lot of that is part and parcel of the outstanding job. He did as a recruiter bringing great prospects to Ohio State over his time as the head coach. Now hands off the baton to Ryan day important that there's no slippage in that regard. Most of urban Meyer's classes were all ranked in the top five nationally this class as we sit here right now is ranked number fourteen in the country. And there are some mitigating circumstances. Obviously, it's not a huge class as of today. You know, it's just kind of the way the world is this was the transition and the uncertainty with program there were some issues that cropped up this ball. But I don't look at this as. Warning sign or an idea that he's not going to recruit at the same level that urban Meyer did so I think you look at it and just say there's you mentioned back here. So now outstanding prospect central Ohio and plenty about the top players. That is Steve hell wagon with button nuts who join me last hour. Boy, there's a lot of top prospects. And in some of them, we kind of talked about steel chambers and Marcus Crowley running backs one from Georgia one from Florida, and he talked about how important this is with Mike Weber exiting, obviously, very important that we're we're getting some quality guys coming in behind him. And then some of the other big names, you know, you got Harry Miller in also an offensive lineman and then. Garrett Wilson top twenty wide receiver prospect out of Austin, Texas. And Josh we even talked about the rumors on this kid from Georgia. This Justin fields the backup there transferring to OSU, and it's pretty interesting is this kind of gain in a little bit of traction right now. Yeah. He's back up to Jake fromm down in Georgia. And he doesn't want to sit another. He's tired. He wants a chance to plays very talented was highly recruited, and you know, the thing is, you know, there's not a quarterback in this recruiting class the twenty nine thousand nine recruiting class for Ohio State does not have a quarterback tell the last time. I haven't seen one quarterback in Ohio states recruiting class. So when you consider the fact that they've got that whole there, and listen, I know people around here excited, and you know, I'll give Tate Martell chance. But I'm not exactly enamored with the guy. I'm not I haven't seen enough to believe that he's going to be any more than a you know, a running quarterback. And I I don't wanna running quarterbacks. You see how I want? I want to Dwayne Haskins. Type wanna pocket presence. You know, even though even though the fields out of this Justin feels cow Georgia. He is kind of almost J T Barrett ish in and how he plays. I. Just I don't know. I I think that whatever Ryan day does whatever this coaching staff does the most important position to solidify and whatever Ryan day wants to do with his offense where he's going to go back to the run pass option. Whether he's gonna stick back with more of a traditional spread with what we did this year. He's gonna you gotta make sure you have a really Dag on good quarterback. You didn't say RPO. You actually said run pass option. I'm tired of people who drop that don't even know what the hell RPO like. We're not that that was a robot from Star Wars see three P India. Right. Exactly. Okay. Well, interesting. We'll see how that plays out. You know, some some good information there again, thanks to Steve L wagon with buck nuts. Pretty cool. So last night. You started telling me, this is the greatest you guys. I I'll have to bring the I gotta bring the audience in on this a little bit. So you walk into the office today and Josh comes around the corner into the office. And I'm sitting there, and he goes what's up, dude? I go what's up? He goes. I got a really good story. I mean that was like your first words today, which makes me smile, man. Yes. You and I are always thinking why we're all we're content starved as they say we're on the air for three hours every day. We're always combing were thinking, we're always trying to come up with something. Interesting to entertain our fantastic audience. And you've got some it's like everything good or bad the happens in my life. Now, I look through the lens of well. How can what can I do to turn this into material for the show? I do it all the time. And you know, what's sad is is Lauren to the point yet where she my wife will go. Hey, you could do that's a topic for your? Show. We'll be watching TV. I'm not kidding. Sometimes occasionally she'll show liar drop that adhere there. But yeah. No. So I hit a I kinda I hit a parking. I was kind of looking to make sure nobody was coming my way. I hit a kerb at Kroger. You're pulling out the one out at the curb at Kroger. I didn't think I hit that hard. But I get home and as half, I'm halfway home. I noticed that little tire like pressure late thing start blinking on and off. And I'm like, well, that's not good. I go. I must have hit that a little harder. It's like a sensor on your dashboard. Yeah. Exactly. And then get out of the car. And I know it's like oh my God. My tires gone flat. Oh my gosh. My rims a little bent like, maybe a three inch piece of it is just bent up a little bit. Maybe like a nine even a forty five degree angle. And I'm like, oh, no. You know, what kind of strikes me if I could pause you right there? The thing. That strikes me kinda surprising about this. You're pulling out you, maybe you're like, I hit a curb you didn't really feel like. Holy crap. You're just like I hit a curb, and it was like not that big of a deal yet, you end up bending your ram it just based on the way, you're describing. I'm sean. It's almost like what is your roommate out of how could it just been so easy? You know, I know metal. What's this chair made out from shallow Hal anyway? So I put the is. So I got to put the the Donut on right and donate. The only go like forty five fifty miles an hour. I got to put the Donut on tonight. I gotta drop the tire and the rim off at a play. I don't know. I I'm to get. I'm really worried about how much they think they're going to be able to salvage the tire, but the rim. I was gonna say it could you see any visible damage to the tire you're thinking where it meets the rim there because it was. Just came off. And that's what let the air out. Okay. Now, whether it's completely destroyed or not I'm just hoping it can salvage the tire. I wish I knew somebody. I wish there was a guy. Like, I wish I had a guy that could just like I can just drive help you out help me out and fix it off. No, I'm going to get ripped off. Because God knows what a rims gonna cost. So anyway, I put the Donut on well. Anyway. Where you get rim jobs too. Because if you go depending on where you go that could actually turn really, really bad. But anyway, go, and I'm very I'm very nervous about this. I need a reputable guy to go to many anyway point is. I got the Donut on this morning. I dropped I dropped my little baby girl off at daycare. I didn't even think about I just I just want my normal way. I start to get on to seventy I'm already at the bottom of the exit before dawns on me. I'm on a doughnut. I can't go seventy miles an hour. Sixty five miles an hour on this Donut on to seven. I think you can though the it tells you they're not rated so. The guy in the slow lane with my flashers on point forty five miles an hour all the way from sawmill till I can get off at thirty three in Dublin. And then I have to cross back all the way through downtown doubling riverside. So I can drive forty five the rest of the way of riverside, dude. I was that guy. I was the guy that you've made fun of. Yeah. I knew it. I lay on my horn like what city doing get off the interstate. I was the guy today man, and it caused me to be like twenty minutes late to work. It was it was disastrous..

"Getting ready for the top of the hour news. We're also getting ready for our Bloomberg market minute. We will get to those momentarily right now. I'll tell you that. I am watching Twitter pretty much nonstop here as I know many Buckeye fans are today. Why why are they watching Twitter so closely today because today the early signing period opens for high school football players who are choosing their colleges and so far seven young men have chosen Ohio State? They are expecting many more. We are watching the top rated recruit in central Ohio. We are watching to see exactly what Zach Harrison out of Olin Tanzi, orange high school does today. But it is a very interesting day to watch Twitter at our own sports director Matt McCoy with some pretty solid advice on his own Twitter account. I know that there will be athletes today who choose schools other than Ohio State, and I know that throughout the country there will be athletes that a lot of fans. Have college teams are looking forward to having come and play for their teams and those athletes may choose other schools, if they do there's no reason to beat those guys up on Twitter, Matt McCoy points that out very eloquently on his own Twitter account. These kids are seventeen or eighteen years old if they make a choice, if they make a choice to go to another school, please please don't be up on Twitter show that you're a little bit better than that show that you're a little bit more mature than that. But it happens every year. It's rather ridiculous to see. What people do in the name of supporting their own school. And it's really it's not necessary. So we're watching it for you. We'll let you know who the very latest Siamese are with Ohio State, and obviously everybody in central Ohio everybody in the state of Ohio is pulling for these guys to choose Ohio State, but not everybody will there is a young man who by the name of Jordan battle who was being heavily recruited by Ohio State. And it has just been announced that he has signed with Alabama. So there you go. That's exactly the situation that I just portrayed for you. Don't beat up Andrew Jordan battle because he has chosen to play football at another school. Everything will be okay. All right. Let's talk now to Patrice Sukur who's at Bloomberg. And I I know we talked about this virtually every time here Patrice but later on this afternoon. The feds will set these interest rates, and so many people are very anxious about. Where those rates might land. Well, we really don't know or looking for what they're calling a dovish hike at this point central bankers expected to raise rates a fourth time this year and ahead of that futures are higher SNP up twenty one point that's eight tenths percent. Nasdaq up fifty two then is also eight tenths percent..

"Seven twenty seven. Bottom of the hour. News is just a few moments away. The big news is already rolling in for Ohio State football. We've mentioned a couple of times today national early signing period for national letter of intent for a high school football players who want to continue their careers in college. Ohio State has already had several commitments sign on the dotted line, including cades Stover, Mr. Ohio football, who's going to be a Buckeye now. Marcus Crowley, who is the Florida player of the year was going to go to Miami of Florida Ohio State flipped him. He's coming to Ohio State, Ronnie Hickman, Noah Potter mica. Potter's brother, Noah Potter? Lori Schmidt is all over this today. And we will have the very latest as these commitments continue to roll in. It's always amazing to me. I've never been a big recruiting guru. And despite all my time in sports, I've never been overly interested in it. Although I know that's the lifeblood of any good college football program. I've never really been overly interested in it. I've always been a show me guy show me show me what you can do when you get to Ohio State show me how good you are when you get to the college level. Don't tell me how good you were in high school show me how good you are at this level. I know there are many people who can't wait to find out. What eighth grader is on the Ohio State buckeyes list for three years from now. I'm just not one of those people show me what you do when you get here. There have been any number of recruits who have come to Ohio State as a five star this or a four star that and they have fizzled out only to have their positions taken by a kid who was not as highly touted happens all the time. So I I wish all of these recruits who signed with Ohio State or wherever they may choose decide. I wish the ball. Well, I hope they all blossom into tremendous college football players. But the fact of the matter is they all can't be starters. They all can't be NFL prospects. Some of them are going to reach great heights. Some of them are going to exceed expectations and some of them will fall short. But it's days like this. And it used to be in February it used to be that first Wednesday in February. But it stays like this that make me scratch my head and say, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Let's pump the brakes on this a little bit. They're all tremendous high school football players. Everyone wants them to be great college football players and the little stars attached to their name. Tell us whether they have a better chance of doing that. Or not. But these kids are all making the transition some of them do it. Well, some of them do it easily some of them do not handle that transition. Very well. But I know a lot of you're just scanning Twitter today. I can't wait. I can't wait. I can't wait who they gonna get who's this guy. Let me tell you about. And we'll have the names for you as they roll in. And of course, we're watching for the big one. We're watching to see what Zach Harrison does I have not seen any indication on that yet. But when we get it. We will bring it to you right now, we will bring you, traffic and weather. We do it every ten minutes on the tens TempStar.

And frankly, I have adopted that style I no longer enjoy that trip to the mall to go through all of the last. Senate stuff. No, that's fun for some people. I used to enjoy it. I do not enjoy it any longer things you're going to be hearing about today. President Donald Trump is apparently backing down now on his request for five billion dollars to fund the wall between Mexico and the United States if that's going to be an obstacle to getting this budget passed. He's he's willing to appears he's willing to maybe soften his stance. A little bit on that. He does not want the government shutdown whereas earlier in the week he said he would have been proud for the government shutdown. So you're gonna wanna watch for that. There is a movement afoot here to have people turn in their bump stocks. That's also coming from the White House. They're trying to ban bump stocks. The Trump administration is White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, said bump stocks should be legal because they fall within the definition of machine guns, which are already banned. So you're going to be turning in your bump stocks soon. I'm sure there are folks who are not very happy about that. Sports wise. You know, the news yesterday the buckeyes game against northwestern next October has been moved from Saturday to Friday and people are all up in arms over that. No. You can't do that. I have already given my opinion on that. I don't feel bad for the buckeyes. I do feel bad for high school programs around the state who are suddenly going to have to compete with an Ohio State game on a Friday night in October. The other big Ohio State news today is they are awaiting the signatures of many young high school players in this early signing period. Which opens today, the buckeyes will have a majority of their class signed today, and we'll have I'm sure the very latest on that with Matt McCoy, and Eric research all of our sports guys were working on that today the big name out there. Zac Harrison, outta volunteer g orange high school. How big is that n-? Well, he might be the highest rated recruit ever to come from central Ohio. How big is he is on the front page of the Columbus dispatch today with all of those other stories that I mentioned Zach Harrison a young player out of all tansy, orange high school is the front page cover story on the Columbus dispatch today.

"Going in for Joel Riley here? Six ten WTVN. Glad you're with us this morning. And hopefully your day is getting off to a good start. Things are going to be paying attention to today depends upon what your interests are, obviously if you're a Buckeye football fan, and you've now gotten over the fact that their game with north western has been rescheduled from Saturday to a Friday, you're going to be paying attention to the early signing period which begins this morning, and you're going to be paying specific attention to what the young man from Olatunji orange school. Zach Harrison has on his mind. Zach Harrison is perhaps the highest rated recruit ever a five star recruit out of all intangible, orange high school. He's been very low key and wants to. To keep his announcement, very low key in terms of where he decides to go play college football. He is using reportedly between Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State at a report last week that always going to be Penn State. Then you hear the next one is trending towards Ohio State. I know people in Ohio are saying, whatever, you Do Son. Just do not go to Michigan. We will expect that news coming really at any time today. He said he's going to tweet it out. So if you're on Twitter, you're gonna wanna pay attention. That. Back to that Ohio State football game being moved. I was on with Mark blazer yesterday on his show. We were talking about that a lot of people are upset about it. A lot of people say, well, there's there's a couple of different viewpoints on it. Number one, Ohio State plays in the big ten Ohio State is one of the dominant teams dominant organizations dominant institutions in the big ten. They shouldn't have to play on a Friday night. Eighty to play on Saturdays Friday nights, weeknights her for MAC schools there for schools that need the attention. They need the spotlight that has shown on them the primetime television. Weeknights and football college football. No, no. They don't go together. I understand that. I also understand perhaps more. So the argument that you can't put Ohio State on a Friday night because that forces fans of high school teams throughout Ohio to choose do they go support their local high school team in the middle of October. Or they stay home and watch the buckeyes on TV or do they go to Chicago and watch the game in person. I think of the two arguments that's the one that probably resonates with me. The most Ohio State has no business complaining at all. For what night of the weekday play on two years ago. They opened on Thursday night in Bloomington, Indiana. A lot of people went to the game. A lot of people made their work schedule adjusted their work schedule. So they could go. And a lot of people will do that again with a game in Chicago on a Friday night. It's a great weekend trip. Good way to start your weekend buckeyes, playing on a Friday night, Chicago, really if you stop and think about it that in itself is not worth complaining about. However, if you have a son who plays football, a daughter who cheers somebody who's in the band, and you wanna go support your local high school team. And you're also a air quotes here big Buckeye fan. The biggest Buckeye fan. You have to make a choice. There will be people who will choose Ohio State football and stay home and not go support their local high school team. That argument makes the most sense. I don't feel bad for state. You should really never feel bad for Ohio State because of the way a game has been scheduled. The money's gonna flow in the eyeballs are going to be there on TV. Everything's going to be there. Don't feel bad for Ryan day in the buckeyes because they have to play on a Friday night. It is not some sort of. Scheduling gaffe that is beneath Ohio State, please they'll play on any night of the week doesn't matter and they'll always be popular for the high schools, though, they've got a complaint if I was a High School Athletic director or a football coach or anybody who will be impacted by that. I'd say wait a minute come on. Now, that's not that's not really the way to handle this in terms of how it's going to impact high school programs throughout the state of Ohio on that particular Friday night. Six forty now. Traffic.

"Hallo watch us on Facebook. At inside the huddle w t k. Hey, welcome back to inside the huddle few. I don't know. Maybe like a half hour hour that we're talking about the recurring classes for Ohio State that urban Meyer has had. Which are just incredible will Nick Bumgarner did tweet out the urban Meyer comparison to Michigan comparison over the last seven years, according to the twenty four seven sports composite. So. Every year except for this current recruiting cycles two thousand nineteen Ohio State has been better now. It hasn't been dramatically better. A couple times in two thousand seventeen thousand seventeen recruiting class. Why have state finishing number two? Michigan finished number five. I mean, that's pretty close. And tells in sixteen Ohio State was four and Michigan was eight. But in two thousand fifteen that was Harbaugh's first year he came in late in the game. He was able only able to to nab a couple of players with, you know, the handicap of of I mean, he was hired on January first or December thirty first it didn't have enough time. His class was thirty seven urban was seventh. The year before that his class was while Brady hoax class class was twentieth. Urban was third. So the classes that the teams that made up the recruiting rankings that made up this two thousand eighteen Michigan football team were twenty thirty seven eight five and twenty two. Conversely, the the recruiting classes for Ohio State were three seven four two and two. Yeah. So go that's why I mean, that's you know, that's why I kinda like look at Michigan fans who act like it's like a Harvard is like not good enough. I'm like, well, I don't know about that. Because we also by the way, if you want to save yourself, the the page reloading and things go to the twenty four seven sports team talent composite. We do this every year we compile who's actually on team. So if transfers leave or people transfer five stars leave early or things like that. Still it just factors. Who's on? The team was number one. Michigan was number eight and in that regard. If you look at it like that who's really underachieving this year. No, I don't know that I may saying they're underachieving. But you know, there are thing is is that teams with less tail dooby teams with more talent. Yeah. But go look at the teen town composite and don't tell me that the college football playoff is. Much understand. I understand us. I understand there's still an opportunity. I mean, I get it. And it makes sense. And it's why you consistently. I don't know who who called up and said, but it's why Alabama and Clemson consistently show up in the college ball playoff urban Meyer has three titles are better at recruiting than everybody else and Oklahoma is really good at recruiting. And, but you know, like four to state, I think is fifth in your team composite estate and USC colossally underachieve. It's a culture problem. We'll see if tagger could fix it. Florida state. But that's that's been a joke for about a decade how well USC just naturally recruits. It's like you, and I could recruit top ten classes USC, we really could. And I mean, honestly, they might not they could probably not have a coach and Selva top ten recruiting class. And but they just haven't had a coach that can that can win since Pete Carroll. Really? Yeah. Yeah. No sneezed out a couple eleven when seasons because it's just that easy. Right. So the composite top teams are alabam Ohio states one Alabama, Georgia USC, Florida state, Clemson LSU, Michigan taxes Notre Dame. Notre Dame's in the in that mix this year. I mean, I think every team you listed except for Florida state and UNC and USC had a very good season. This year. But Oklahoma is number eleven and the team compiles rankings. Okay. They got they got a got a former five-star core. I mean, that's the other thing is like I don't need. I understand. That's why Lincoln Riley is being looked at us. NFL coaches. You say if you say, I understand one more time, I agree. No. Anyway, you got to recruit at that level. And then you gotta be you. Gotta have a great coaching staff and honestly for Michigan beat Ohio State regularly. I think will have state needs to fall from number one spot. I gotta be they gotta be more in that four or five ballpark. Well, I mean, they're class right now, as I mentioned, you know, Michigan at this moment is number seven in Ohio State is number eleven the classes are not done yet. But if Michigan picks up Zac Harrison, they're going to get boosted again. And so if they Zach Harrison, it might be difficult for Ohio State to have a better class this year. I think this the Ohio states classes already kind of do for a drop off partly because they can't sell instant playing time because they've got guys like Barron Browning former five star linebacker. They've got Chris young former star defensive end they've got fives. I mean, they've got basically every position. So. So other than receiver. And I think they've got maybe the best receiver in the twenty nine thousand class coming in Garrett Wilson, maybe I'd have to look it up but other than receiver they really in in maybe quarterback, they can't really sell playing time. And so this is an opportunity in Michigan to their credit has done a nice job. Getting a lot of guys that I think could be your one impact players. At the beginning of the class. They were kind of looking for like diamonds in the rough ground Florida job. Oh types who like two years from now might be beasts. But then they've started shifting and this is the plan shifting toward getting some of these Primo possible day one starters because this is a class that can be good because you're going to have that attrition. Well, certainly be interesting to see signing day. I guess is not next one. Is as the nineteenth. Yes. So we were as little head of ourselves Maher talking about it for next next Wednesday the nineteenth. There is a list at the Michigan insider, you can read all the players that are expected to sign and there are expected to enroll early including Dexter and hill is expected to sign. He's I don't think it's Saturday is expected to enroll early but he is expected to sign now. So which would make Michigan fans, very happy. If you can get the the elite guys to all sign Chardonnay Hinton hill. Yeah. That will make you feel significantly better. Yeah. I mean, the three three top fifty recruits. Yeah. Charbonnet has moved up in the composite the twenty four seven sports composite. I think over forty two twenty five in our specific rankings? It's the other our competitors. That were a little slower on him. Also going on right now. There's a commitment kids deciding between Michigan state or Duke Vernon Carey, Jerry. He's not a one and done type. Little surprise that. Michigan state's finding itself in this one. But. I wouldn't be surprised votes Duke. I don't know. I don't know what the Christobal says. But all right when we come back Heisman Trophy is coming up this weekend. Three people have been named finalists Dwayne Haskins Cuyler Murray and to a Tagliatela who is our pick to win the Heisman Trophy. And who do we think differently than who is our pick?

"Shaw and Matt MS ler villain in for Michael spat. Although we're here every day. So really, it's just Michael's not here. Yeah. Michael filling in more. We're still here. No. But but Michael Mike for today. And and if you missed any of our show, check it out audio boom. No, I'm ni. Oh, yeah. W t actor dot com. Yeah. And you can find an Omni as well. As ways to subscribe and everything but we've talked to Chris young for a couple of segments. Former Michigan basketball, captain about the basketball teams, really really impressive showing on Wednesday. We talked with Brian Wiseman. About Michigan hockey's big series against Michigan state. You know, big opportunity because like, you know, he he won't say. And there is some fairness anything can happen in college hockey. It's not it's a very parody driven sport big opportunity for Michigan to get a sweep. I think they can not sure if they will. I think if if they can and they walk in there eight and five maybe maybe you get a couple of wins against Minnesota to suddenly you're right back where you started the season in that in that kind of top five top eight mix. So big opportunity for the wolverines take him out Saturday, if you're interested we also did true false in the opening our and for this next couple minutes, we're gonna we're gonna go over those those results a little bit. Heard from her from good amount of people. I'll few of them are pretty one sided. And I I think I think that's fine. But it is. It is interesting. Actually, they are all decided by at least seventy percent of the vote. So yeah, now seems like some of them got voted on more than others. In fairness, but anyway. First one Michigan will lose. At least two assistant coaches this off season. The people are with us. Seventy five percent say true, obviously, that's not pending any name Steny thing or or saying, oh, they'll go here. They'll go there just you know, we we heard mcelwain was linked to central Michigan. I imagine if he doesn't go there that won't be the first school to offer him a promotion. And then that's that was kind of always maybe not always thought of as part of the deal. But I think that was something that was understood that he's not going to be a ride receivers coach for long, you know, he was a division one head coach and pretty successful. I mean, the I don't think he was ever gonna fully cut it at Florida. But sound like he was he was a slouch there. You know, he's definitely qualified especially for group of five school. I think would would be interested in snatching him up Sony. Seventy five percent of you say true just to typically, I mean, I think it's happened every year. I'd be curious last time. Michigan didn't lose to assistant football coaches. I will say C T and T big great basketball mind. Good follow on Twitter, if you're interested. But he he replied and Said Sadi and yacht glitch. You know, referring to the basketball. I mean, I mean, we imagined it earlier to that. You know, they've got the great potential that they could go coach somewhere else. But I live in the now, let's let's live in our yada, yada. Your are still on our bench. I'm not on the team. So I don't need to live in the now. But. Well, you know what? I loved messing with you. Because it might never it. Never doesn't bother you. When you say, we hit a Mike, you're not on the team, buddy. Let's live in the now all of us fans. I have to imagine, yuck. Let's get hired by somebody. Oh, I would imagine. So I can't imagine a school wouldn't try to snatch that up. So anyway, seventy five percent say true for football. Also sticking a football four of Michigan's twelve regular season. Twenty nineteen opponents will have first year head coaches. Four is high. But thirty percent of you say true, seventy five seventy percent said it'd be three or fewer true. But I really just kinda the nature of the beast. I'm predicting more than anything not saying anybody's leaving. But they're six schools and seven if you want to count Notre Dame that I think could have them. So do they go four for seven. Noshir forest forest high. But it has happened before I think two thousand sixteen they faced five or six first year head coaches this year, they faced Canada frost. SMU had a new coach was that. All. Yeah. Western said there for years now. Yeah, lester. Yeah. Lester at western. That's fun. So seventy five seventy percent say false number three. Michigan football end up with two or more five stars in its twenty nineteen class. Michigan fans believe baby eighty three percents say true right now, they have Dax tannehill. And they have. They have Zac Chardonnay who is twenty fifth in the twenty four seven rankings as people pointed out on Twitter d Norris. Drew Norris as you said mainly saying, yes, because I think charbonnet ends up as a five star good point all if the other recruiting rankings that aren't twenty four seven catch up in their belief and Chardonnay he'll move up. He'd be he'd be a five star. Right now, I think he's one hundred in the composite he's twenty fifth and twenty four seven so clearly our site views him much higher than than the other sites. Do but you know that could change that can change. As far as Zach Harrison. They have a crystal ball lead. I think I think it's a it took a took a hit to the keystone. And now they got to get back up and keep fighting, and you knew that was going to happen. Yeah. If they beat Ohio State, maybe maybe he commits that day, you never know. But you know, if they'd if they beat Ohio State, obviously, it's easier. They did not their defense did not look good. But it sounds like between Michigan's Ohio recruits of which they have many between Washington, and Greg Madison and Brown you guys who who've really done a nice job selling Michigan to to Harrison. I think. I think it'll be think they'll be able to fend them off. So so I said sure on that eighty three percents true. And then here's one that. I'm I think the fans might be I this is wider than I thought it was gonna be Ignace will finish the season is Michigan basketball's best freshman under John B line. And it's Chris young pointed out, Manny Harris is it was pretty good. Yeah. Trey Burke was pretty good. I mean, he Trey Burke, probably under the new system where you can test the waters. He absolutely would have tested the waters, and I think he would have ended up emerging as the first round pick. And I think he might have gone. So hard. I I know Iggy scores a lot. And I know he does a lot of things. Well, I think there's there's something something a little different about what Trey Burke did. So I I'm tempted to say true. But I might I might pause for now as far as the will finish the season is making bats because teams are going to figure out, you know, it's not like he's. He's gonna suddenly slump like crazy. But I think the teams are going to realize okay. This is the this is the best player on the team. You know, we got to defend him. Anyway, those were the true false is on the other side our last staff picks until the bowl season. Exactly it conference championship games. We're going to talk a little bit about the playoff. And where we think Michigan football will end up this bowl season. Stay tuned for that. And the rest of the show on the other side. You'll listening inside the huddle here on sports talk. Ten fifty WT lately, it seems like everything we use everyday is getting an upgrade from the bed. We sleep in to the razor we use when we wake up, but we've neglected one of the more impulsive products in a daily routine that old worn out toothbrush..

"He's six six to fifty. I watched them run a four four seven forty down in Dallas at the opening. So he's still legit time. He has all the tools to be a a freak at the college level. Maybe not right away. Because he's only two fifty get tossed around a little bit believe books. Wait on. He is going to be a beef. And it's it's Michigan Ohio state and Penn State for this this kid every everyone around him. You've heard me talk about this before mom included mom, especially they want him to go to Ohio State. He was down at Ohio State last week watching that game against against Nebraska watching that defense, and you had to be looking up in Michigan. Seeing what they were doing a Penn State Michigan. Michigan state the week before where Michigan state couldn't bust a grape against Michigan. And then the week prior to that when you know, what they did against Wisconsin. This has been a dominant defense if you wanna play on a dominant defense and your Zach Harrison needs to programs you're thinking Michigan right now. But again the worse. Ohio State looks the better it is for Michigan. So from a recruiting perspective your your Michigan today you want Michigan state to win this game. Sharon and couldn't have been a better recruiting weekend for Michigan hosting Penn. State and totally dominating on both sides of the field number of up for Penn State. Tell us what's going on. Yeah. Providers grouch a five star prospect, he's six three about two hundred and forty pounds. And you're talking about a guy that play running back to play linebacker. I went down to Charlotte to watch him play. He had an eighty yard touchdown. He had a sixty yard touchdown. He had a forty yard touchdown. Then he lined up on defense picked up a couple of. The sex the guy's a free. But it's Michigan Clifton for this young, man. And he is Clemson is obviously much closer to home. I think he feels more comfortable with the coaches and players here at Michigan but lives in half proximity. They play great defense to. And this is one of those times where Dabo Sweeney is a seventy van Jellicoe. And I think that really plays to this young, man. I think that is I think that's a factor in the appeal of Clemson. So it's not like just because Michigan might be leading. I think Michigan does lead coming out of the game last week. Clemson is still to be reckoned with he taking an official visit Tennessee this week. He's gonna take an official visit to Clemson next week. And we'll start to see about the homes. The other guy really think about Kaelin coach a four star linebacker out of Savannah, Georgia. His his he's committed to Florida state, but he was up at Michigan last week was blown away. It was his family's third time up, and I really feel like Michigan is in great shape that he he has a daughter even from Georgia has a daughter running track at Ohio State. Michigan is looking at his boss. He has a six foot seven inch wing playing a prep school in South Carolina. He said I want him to go to Michigan state. So he's back. I have a daughter a daughter at Ohio State football side at Michigan essay my basketball here to Michigan state. We're great. So he said that he said it on a record. That'd be one can kiss. Did. So Michigan looking very very good, Florida state commitment. Caitlyn Dilip I can't think of any clothing that has blue red and green. I don't see how that works. But. No, it was a big recruiting weekend for Michigan in this one. And it seems like Michigan's having more battles with Clemson over the last few years than you would normally think there's a lot of evangelical 's in Ann Arbor. I mean, maybe not other if not put it this way is not something that is is a part of the recruiting process for Michigan. It is a part of the recruiting process eclipse, and I'm not saying that makes it wrong or fake reporting. It is it's just a part Dabo Sweeney recruiting pitch, and it's a part of his recruiting pitch that really appeals to this young, man. Another Michigan Ohio state battle really quickly. Another kid that was there last week a linebacker out of Ohio named Tommy Eichenberger, Tommy Aiken Berg is what was the linebacker from that place for Carolina Panthers. Went to BC. The poor man's Luke Keithly for poor man's Leuke cly, but he's committed to Boston. This kid is committed to Boston College too. But Ohio State has come in. And they've offered him Michigan. They've come in and offer them. Tommy Berg was at the game last week. I think it's gonna come down to Michigan Ohio state for these young, man. His brother plays off line at Notre Dame. But it's it doesn't look like Notre Dame's really in the picture here. This is a three dollar linebacker sideline to sideline guy. You know, a classic Mike linebacker Beck.
