But Clemson being in the south is surrounded by H.S. talent. TSUN has very little H.S. talent, and Ohio does not have the talent it once had for TTUN to poach.Based on current trends the Buckeyes are in total control. As for this decade, it is hard to say what will happen 10 years from now.
Just imagine, 10 years ago Clemson was a slightly above average college football program and look where they are now.
Michigan is rapidly approaching Ohio in terms of HS talent produced. An indicator as to how much Ohio has fallen and how much the efforts to identify and develop young talent in the Detroit/Flint area.But Clemson being in the south is surrounded by H.S. talent.

What “experience?” They all take the same online classes and live in the same apartments/dorms as other football players. Don’t pretend like these players are invested in the University outside of Football, that’s childish and naive.Just binged watched an HBO show about the 2017 Michian season. IMO, osu has nothing to worry about for the near future. Harbaugh is a complete dork. He may have been a ok QB in college and an average coach in the the pro's, but he totally sucks as a head coach at Michigan. This guy is a complete dork! How in the hell would any top flight player want to go to that crap whole like Michigan. The dorms are pathetic. Hopefully OSU is a waaaay better life experience than the piece of garbage like Michigan. Any high school coach that would allow their kids to go to that place, should be fired!!!IMO
That’s what I initially thought, then I saw him mention “life experience” and that muddled up his point. These kids aren’t concerned (for the most part) about the “college experience.” They all have a goal of getting to the NFL, and they want to be put in the best position to reach that goal.I think you misunderstood him. You have to understand some schools spend significantly more on dorms and football player only complexes. I think it’s Clemson that spent $55m on a complex accessible to only football players that has a barber shop, bowling alley, slides, etc. covidsucks seems to be saying Michigan’s is lacking.
FYP.I bet no one thought the Buckeyes would go 2-10-1 in the late
70s80's and the decade of the 80s 90's.
IF Michigan can get a good coach, maybe a no-name like Bo, then worm can turn again. Never say never.
I still think JCooper never understood the importance of the game and not so sure Jimmy really does either or he is secure making his $1 mil per win......
Michigan was 17-7-1 vs Ohio St. from 1976-2000, it wasn't all CooperFYP.
I agree Cooper didn't initially understand the rivalry, but he eventually came to fear it. You could see it on his face every year.
Harbaugh understands it, but he's not a good enough coach and recruiter to win his share.
That was 0-3 during Woody’s last years, 5-4 under Earle Bruce and 2-10-1 under Cooper.Michigan was 17-7-1 vs Ohio St. from 1976-2000, it wasn't all Cooper
All about recruiting. Michigan got the best Ohio athletes during that time frame. Urban Meyer is one of the greatest recruiters of all time. Every year they were top 3. I’ll take a wild guess after a few years Ohio State will be closer to Michigan level since last years class was pretty bad.And 17-7-1 from 1976-2000, no matter the metric you use.
They turned a 5 star in Peoples Jones into a guy who barely got drafted.There's a growing talent gap between these two programs particularly at the offensive skill positions.
Over the past 5 drafts OSU has produced Michael Thomas, Ezekiel Elliot, Curtis Samuel, Terry McLaurin, Parris Campbell, Dwayne Haskins and JK Dobbins. Not to mention having a top 5 overall defensive talent selected in 4 of the past 5 drafts (Marshon Lattimore at 11th overall in '17 isn't a bad consolation).
Michigan has produced only one offensive skill player that went in the top 3 rounds over the past 5 drafts and that was a WR at pick #106 in 2017.
With the way things are going, as a Michigan fan, I'd be happy only winning every other home game for the foreseeable future.
It happens at every school. OSU had Curtis Grant and Jalin Marshall as 5*s who went undrafted. Justin Hilliard was a 5* and he is a long shot to be drafted. Clemson had Mitch Hyatt go undrafted. Alabama has had Eddie Williams, Robert Foster, Tony Brown, Blake Barnett as 5*s that went undrafted. I like sh*tting on Michigan as much as the next OSU fan but don't be stupid about it.They turned a 5 star in Peoples Jones into a guy who barely got drafted.
