    If I were Ohio State, I wouldn’t even send him out on the road.

    They’ll be fine recruiting wise.

    He (and Scott Frost) have some pretty solid play designs. The speed was a gimmick. The play design was not.

    Frost’s career sure spiraled as well. It seems as though coaches never really have as much success when they leave Eugene.

    Frost was an absolute dumpster fire as a head coach. Would be curious to see how he does as an OC.

    Similar with Chip. Curious how it shakes out with tOSU. Ton of talent. Arguably 2 of the best RBs in the B1G as well.

    Coaches when they leave O do seem to struggle. Curious why that would be.

    UO has a self sustainable program. Winning is hard.

    Running an uptempto offense like Kelly did at Oregon is a guaranteed way to lose the time of possession & put that team's D on the field a lot. A team going in that direction has to be willing to liberally use it's defensive depth. With much smaller active rosters game day in the NFL then college, I couldn't see how an uptempto approach could succeed there but I think it still can in college. According to rivals, Ohio State's last 5 classes were ranked 4, 4, 4, 2 & 5. They've got the horses...

    And you would honestly think that using that depth would be a huge selling point to recruits. Everybody will get to play, and get tons of reps.

    That’s true, I’d be curious to see how many coaches move on from Alabama/Saban and struggle.

    im also curious to see how Syracuse’s HC does… think he was originally the #1 recruiter for Kirby.

    They’ll also probably have the best defense in college next year…

    I don’t think tempo all the time is a great idea in the B1G though.

    Ducks land another stud for their DL and the next class (2025). Matthew Johnson hails from the Bay Area's De La Salle which is consistently one of the best HS programs in the country

    Wasn't Frost the HC at UCF the year they went undefeated and were one of only a couple undefeated teams for the season?

    Buckeye's HC Ryan Day played QB at New Hampshire when Kelly was the OC there. Day went on to coach QBs in the NFL (Eagles, 49ers) under Kelly. Pretty sure he knows whats really what with the Kelly

    This Ducks basketball team looks like they’ll get bounced in the first round.

    In the Pac12 Tournament or the NIT?

    They're not making the NCAA tournament with 7 healthy scholarship players.
