So it has been a pretty busy week for Ohio State on the recruiting trail. They landed commit no. 11 in Top 50 DE Jalyn Holmes. You can read all about that here. They also have hosted literally 100s of recruits from the highest ranked to guys trying to make a name for them self and earn some schollies. You can read all the live updates from our friend at 11W Jeremy Birmingham by following his twitter feed HERE.

Bret Bielema decided to share his brilliance on why the “No Huddle” and “Spread Formation” are bad for football…

“Not to get on the coattails of some of the other coaches, there is a lot of truth that the way offensive philosophies are driven now, there’s times where you can’t get a defensive substitution in for 8-, 10-, 12-play drives,” Bielema said. “That has an effect on safety of that student-athlete, especially the bigger defensive linemen, that is really real.”

Alabama’s HC Nick Saban and Florida’s HC Will MUschamp agreed with Bielema in a show of SEC solidarity. Here is what Muschamp had to say..

“That’s something you’ve got to really watch as far as those things are concerned and guys getting lined up and getting themselves in position where they can defend themselves,” Muschamp said. “That’s something that does not always happen sometimes with as fast as these teams are moving.”

Former TTUN and current Arizona HC Rich Rod gave his view on it and needless to say he disagrees….

“Not at all. If you’re in shape, you still have time to substitute with all these timeouts and stoppages for play,” said Rodriguez. “You have three-minute timeouts in every quarter for TV. I don’t see that at all. Some basketball teams play up-tempo and fast break all the time; they don’t talk about that being an issue. …

“I’d like to have less stoppages and play faster. You talk about entertainment and fun to watch, I think we’re fun to watch when we’re playing. I don’t know how much fun it is to watch a huddle. That’s the biggest waste of time in football. I think from an excitement standpoint and the players, I think they like to play.”

Athlon Sports did an article ranking the B1G stadiums top to bottom and Ohio State came out in FIRST PLACE…. Even better though TTUN stadium came in a laughable 5th place see the article here.

Also the guys at ranked the B1G coaches and Urban Meyer came in FIRST PLACE… TTUN Head Coach Brady Hoke came in a surprising 3rd place. Read all about it here.

With recent vandalism of college football traditions at Toomer’s Corner at Auburn and now at Howard’s Rock in Clemson. I really hope Ohio State is taking steps to make sure Buckeye Grove is never harmed and that OSU fans dont ever do anything stupid to sacred TTUN symbols if there are any to worship for their fans?

Fresh off of Blaz Rola winning the first ever National Championship Title in tennis for OSU the mens team is getting more recognition for just how good they have been. Did you know OSU hasn’t lost a home match in 10 YEARS??? that is 172 straight matches won at home for those counting. You can see a story about it here from the guys at TennisRecruiting.Net.

Lastly this week here at MOTSAG we have had stories about Tyvis Powell a Rising Star at Ohio State.

We also had a story about OSU cancelling a game with Central Michigan Chippewas.

And a Q&A with 2014 football recruit Stephen Collier who may possibly be in the running to be the QB for OSU in the 2014 class.
