Wisconsin Badgers coach Bret Bielema has twice publicly bemoaned new Ohio St. Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer's aggressive recruiting methods, which basically amount to recruiting players who are already verbally committed elsewhere. Meyer has called the idea that verbal'd players are off-limits "nonsense," and according to The-Ozone.net's Brandon Castel, took it up a notch at a coaches' clinic Friday:
@BCastOZone "You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again. Do it a little harder next time."
Enhanced recruiting competition will continue as long as it has to, if that's an actual Meyer quote. If we're expecting Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany to step in and tell the coach of one of his two largest fan bases to start recruiting more poorly, we may find ourselves waiting quite a while.
