Default Re: The Coaches Poll

But with teams like OSU and Georgia, the guy waiting in the wings may actually be BETTER. Look at MLB progression for the Buckeyes. Who was going to replace Matt Wilhelm at MLB from the '02 NC team? The heir apparent was Mike D'Andrea (and I still think he would have been a monster had he stayed healthy), and he got injured, which opened up things for AJ Hawk, who went on to win the Butkus.

But how were they ever going to top that?

Thanks, Minnesota, for delivering Little Animal Laurinaitis.

These teams don't rebuild, they reload, and sometimes the new ammo packs an even bigger whallop.
