You obiviously have a problem with Mark O. every D-1 coach that comes in gets rid of players who were previously recruited, and on the roster. Was someone you know one of these? GET OVER IT!!!! Markells last three years of recruiting were TERRIBLE!!!!! Most of these kids couldn't make a USHL Team!!!! Do you think O. wants to build a team for the Big Ten with mediocre players?......NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Get over it! How does someone continue to bash someone who is highly successful?
He did well as a player. A coach. A Gm. A Asst Coach., and now as a Head Coach again. Maybe you need to atleast think of something else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU ARE DUMB AND BITTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry you are not as good as Mark O. at something.

No problem just posting the reality of OZ's history of recruiting at the college level. OZ took over a Green Bay program from Granato that was set up to win. The team he won the champ with at UW was recruited by Ward before his arrival. OZ was a great recruiter for UW but not without his part in a recruiting system of over-committing, delaying,decommitting, and pushing players out. Just the reality of his reign.
Which it appears he plans to continue to do at OHIO until the NCAA steps in. Is it legal, hell yes, is it right, hell no.
OZ has been very successful but not without costs to players. Not a victim just an observer. Had OZ stepped into OHIO and tried to develop players and COACH the talent he had, perspective would be different. However, with the start he has made in over-recruiting and pushing players off rosters it appears he was the over-recruiter at UW.
Actually, thought OZ was the guy to build OHIO and looked forward to see him build a successful program but the start he has made points to a philosophy of students being expendable. College sports is about the Student/athlete, if OZ is just about winning and not committed to the student/athlete and keeping his word to recruits then his success is not acceptable in COLLEGE hockey.
If OZ can win by taking the talent he has and developing it he has a stong backer here, but if he needs to over/recruit and push kids to leave his program then he should get out of college hockey and only have to deal with contracts of pro hockey. USHL Juniors may have been a great fit for him, no contracts, free to cut, and release players with no responsibility to their educations, and their development.
Time will tell with OZ at OHIO.

here's an analogy that OHIO people may be able to relate to:
Is LaBron James the most talented player in the NBA today? Did he have every right to move to Miami to try and win? Was it legal? Was it in his best interest to win? But....with how he did it were people cheering for him to win?
Sometimes talent, legal rights can't trump character in action and people just get that.

It's unbelievable.....Mark O. just turned right on red when he wasn't suppose to. He is such an awful person and coach.
Ohio trustees to evaluate entire athletic program "values to be evaluated"No score for this post

With the NCAA sanctions for OHIO football the trustee have met and decided to review all athletic programs.
"the Cracks weren't really with violations of the NCAA rules but cracks in the entire value system"
" we need to go back and look at all programs and evaluate them with values in place"
How will OZ's young program fair? Will his pushing players out fit the values the trustees are looking talking about?

Ohio State University trustee says football scandal is values issue, calls for soul-searching
1:19 p.m. EDT, June 24, 2011
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State needs to do a lot of "soul-searching" in the wake of the memorablia-for-cash and tattoos football scandal that forced coach Jim Tressel to resign and quarterback Terrelle Pryor to leave school, a university trustee said Friday.
After weeks of silence, the oversight panel for Ohio State — a school of more than 50,000 students — is beginning to comment on the memorabilia scandal. It will spend up to six weeks reviewing the athletic department's entire response to the scandal, though members say they do not know of any other NCAA rules violations right now.
Big Ten Conference "We have a lot to look at in sort of the soul-searching of what is most important in the game of life," trustee Jerry Jurgensen, retired chief executive officer of Nationwide Insurance, said in remarks to the full board on Friday.
"The cracks here weren't really cracks of rules and procedures," he said. "They were cracks in a value system."
Jurgensen, often an independent voice on the board, was quickly contradicted by board chairman Les Wexner, billionaire chairman and founder of Limited Brands and a major donor to the university.
"I don't think we have a lot of soul-searching to do, not at all," Wexner said. "We have a lot of heart celebrating to do for the good that this university does."
Neither Wexner nor Jurgensen would comment after the board meeting. Ohio State President Gordon Gee took Wexner's side, saying "the university is moving forward and we feel very strongly about the fact that we have much to celebrate today."
Tressel's 10-year Ohio State head coaching career, which included a national championship and seven Big Ten titles, ended in disgrace when he stepped down May 30 after failing to tell alert his superiors that players were getting improper benefits under NCAA rules.
The coach knew players received cash and tattoos for autographs, championship rings and equipment and did not tell anyone at Ohio State or the NCAA for more than nine months. NCAA rules — and Tressel's contract — specified that he had to disclose any and all information about possible violations.
Wexner defended the board's silence Friday, saying that, rather than making public pronouncements, trustees decided to devote their energy to working with university administrators to make sure the proper processes, reviews and protocols were in place.
"We've got a very sound process of work," Wexner said.
"I'm pleased and I think the board is pleased with the work to date and the way we've progressed that work in an orderly, focused and thorough manner."
Trustee Robert Schottenstein said on Friday that Ohio State's athletic compliance program is good but there might be room for improvement.
The program, with eight compliance officers, has added two positions since the scandal broke last December, but those positions were being discussed before the news of the memorabilia sales broke. The program oversees hundreds of athletes, including 85 football players on scholarship.
"The NCAA has been in here a number of times and claimed that our athletic compliance process is outstanding," Schottenstein said Friday. "They may be right. That doesn't mean we don't want to change it, though."

OZ lets another go?No score for this post

Got word today that JB was indeed let go by the university. Can't understand why. Even if he wasn't helping coach he was quite the spark plug in motivating the kids but did not hear if it was Oz's decision or the athletic departments. Did find out Brent's departure was not his call but apparently it was understood last season that this would probably be the case.
