Beano Cook: Everyone’s frothy prognosticator was on the radio this week doing what he does best – firing up the college football cognoscenti (he’ll never, ever live Ron Powlus down; it may make his obit one day). Cook, in a nice little rant, predicted Urban Meyer would be coaching Ohio State in 2012. (My prediction, back in December, was 2013.) You can laugh off Cook if you want, but he does make a good point – when Meyer does decide to return to coaching, he can pick his job. Cook thinks Meyer will decide between Notre Dame, Michigan and Ohio State. I’d add USC to that list, but only if Kiffin destroys the program. Some have mentioned Penn State, but I think that’s a pipe dream. [Dispatch via CFT]

He has had eight players drafted in the first three rounds since 2008, just one fewer than Ohio State.
