So how about we relegate the Browns to the USFL and promote the Buckeyes to the NFL?

You mean Greg "I shiat the bed with the Tampa Bay Bucs" Schiano?  That nimrod?

According to leaked government intelligence memos, the average NFL coach has an IQ close to 300.  There's a reason you will never see every NFL coach in the same room, because there is a genuine threat their brains would telepathically interlink and form the biological equivalent of the singularity.

Thank goodness these men are trying to conquer the spread offense, instead of the universe.  They would have conquered the universe by now.

It might be. Probably paid better, too.

Yes, but none of what you said describes Greg.  Dude's a middle school gym teacher.  Those don't conquer the universe.  You sure you got the right guy?

I have over two decades of experience in posting on the internet.  I know what I'm talking about.

Players are better before Schiano coaches them isn't that hard to believe.

Mmmm let's look at this for a second.  19-22 year old kids compared to men in their late 20 to early 30's who are doing this as a livelihood to feed their family.  How about NO.

I've never understood this meme.  Yes, there are some really good college teams and some really bad pro ones.  But the gap is so large it never matters

Look at Ohio State- over the past 4 years they've had amazing luck getting kids into the NFL draft.  31 Ohio State players have been drafted since 2014- that's a staggering number.

But an NFL team is 53 people.  And of those 31, a bunch are 6-7th round guys who will never see anything beyond the practice squad and many of the rest will be bit players- only a few will become starters.  So at best, Ohio State might manage to field half an NFL team's worth of players- the rest would be folks who can't even make practice squads in the NFL.  Even the Browns would put up 70 on Ohio State.

It comes up every year that there is a really good college team.  But no, the very best college team would have trouble crossing the 50 yard line on even the most inept NFL team.  There are some young men in skill positions that are playing at peak level in the NFL, but the real studs (especially the linemen) have been in the league for a few years and are way more mature.  As Steve Young points out about the QBs of the NFL, (paraphrased) "There are 7 Billion people on the planet and only 3 or 4 people are talented enough to be truly elite QBs in the NFL"

Schiano coached some terrible teams and OSU was really good before he got there so he's probably right.

If true they will all be drafted in the first round and immediately become NFL starters.

/it's not true.

You could take the very best college team you could imagine, but if you gave them a pro-level system to learn 75% of the team wouldn't be able to execute it. On a purely athletic standpoint a college team might be able to keep up with an NFL team but they wouldn't last very long because they would be exploited so quickly that their athletic gifts would fail them.

Let's nip this in the bud right now:

In Tampa, he had Gerald McCoy and Michael Bennett,who have several Pro Bowl appearances between them

The end. Greg is an idiot.

We at Rutgers would take him back in a heartbeat.  Even after he left us in the middle of the night like he was the 1983 Baltimore Colts.

I started last year's Army - Navy game and I'll finish it off tonight, I need me some college football.

college football...that's the joke.

Seven to be exact. Schiathead speaks and stupidity ensues.

In his defense Ohio state doesn't have to deal with a salary cap like the nfl so they can spend enough to load their line with all 5 star recruits

Not this shiat again.

Every player on a 53 man NFL roster was good enough to make a pro team.  The same cannot be said for a college team.

Perhaps this is an exception. Alabama offensive line the past several seasons has also been close to this level.
