I think Mattison has slowed down recently. His recruiting dropped off, and the line didn't look great this year. If OSU ends up with nobody but him from our staff, I can't imagine that they will be happy about that. 

If Harbaugh hired their near retirement DL Coach and made him Co-DC, it would be an inferno in here.

I’m surprised this didn’t get mentioned on the board this past Saturday or maybe I missed it but as Urban Meyer was sitting courtside with Justin Fields at their basketball game Tate Martell was posting pics of himself sitting about 40 rows up.  Crootin.

The Fields transfer must have put him over the edge since Fields is already at Haskins level and all (according to multiple moron, I assume, Buckeye posters around here)

I know he looked good this year, but I can't shake the feeling he's going to be a disappointment in the NFL.  He's great when not under much pressure and when he can make a quick read and throw to a streaking receiver, but every Meyer QB since Alex Smith has struggled with more complex schemes and I wonder if that'll continue here.  Wish him luck because I genuinely don't know much about him, but if I'm drafting a QB I'm definitely going to want to see if he bucks the usual Meyer QB issues.

I agree that NFL scouts should be wary of Meyer QB's, ALOM, but I disagree that Jones was more NFL ready.

IMO Haskins is far more prepared to enter the draft. Jones had only 269 pass attempts his entire college career, only 175 his last year at OSU. He also seemed pretty immature (additional prep school year, "we ain't come here to play school" comment, for example).

Haskins threw the ball 533 times this year, and seemed to be a pretty good leader and a mature guy.

They're similar in terms of size and arm, but Meyer built his offense around Haskins' passing. That has to have helped him prepare for the NFL.

How much of that is just that it's pretty damn difficult to be a quarterback in the NFL? I'm thinking of Jeff Tedford, who coached a lot of guys who wound up getting drafted but ended up struggling or in the NFL: Trent Dilfer, David Carr, Akili Smith, Joey Harrington and Kyle Boller.

But he also coached potential Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers.
