    Its the dead period in recruiting... so they can't technically talk to any recruits, I think recruits can call them but not the other way

    Interesting read on James Madison

    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/james-madison-fires-football-coach-162832601--ncaaf.html;_ylt=A2KJ3CUxiLNS91wAW9lNbK5_

    And FWIW their coach made $222,000 in 2011.

    I felt that when we began to see defensive coaches moving on, that would be the indication of who Urban feels has been part of the problem on defense. But now that I think about it, I guess it is possible that the guy simply got a HC offer and he took it.

    Lots of Ohio State assistants have earned my affection over the years. To tell you the truth, I don't really know much about Withers and can't think of anything that has stood out about him the last 2 years. But good luck to him. I hope it works out for him and the Buckeyes.

    This has been the most under the radar DC at tOSU I can remember in the history of my memory.

    He's a hell of a recruiter.

    Does this mean we see Heacock in a more official role?

    Buckeye86 I do not choose to discuss it

    Highly doubtful because Heacock doesn't have the required affinity for recruiting that Meyer demands of his staff.

    What good are top recruits if we can't coach them up?

    Congrats to Coach Withers! My sense is that he was hired to take James Madison to FBS level. If anyone can do it, he can. He's recruiting in his home territory. The ultimate question is whether James Madison should seek FBS level. Doubtful in my book. I'm here at Appalachian State where we are ascending to the (oh yay!) Sunbelt Conference (dumbest move in the history of our program). Still, good luck to Coach Withers.

    Also, I doubt he wishes to return to a full-time role. He certainly could have taken a position elsewhere by now if he wanted it.

    Also, the other day I was digging back through some threads from 2004/2005 after Mark Snyder got hired away. Even back then there were people who (as it turns out, wrongly) assumed that Heacock wouldn't ascend to the DC position because he might be close to retirement.

    I wish Meyer didn't place such an emphasis on recruiting. You can have all the talent in the world but if you can't coach them it's no good. I've watched Kerry Coombs make DB's regress from their performances in 2010-11. You can have all the fire on the sideline and in the player's home but I'm unimpressed with his coaching.
