    This thread could go in either area, but since it affects recruiting I chose to place it in the recruiting section.

    What does everyone thing of Holbrook's apology on the Morgan and Miles recruiting situations?

    I for one read it that she is placing all blame on Tressel and the coaching staff. I believe this is a serious misstep on her part as the President of the University. An effective leader does not place blame on their staff.

    Instead Holbrook should have categorized this as what it truly is, a communication breakdown between the screening committee and the athletic department, in this case Tressel and staff. She should have further indicated what steps would be taken in the future to ensure that the committee and the staff responsible for making offers to the players and reviewing their academic standing worked together.

    The only good thing that Holbrook offered in her statement was an apology to the affected players and families.

    This cannot happen again and Holbrook should know that affective leadership and communication starts with her.....

    The language of the apology is very interesting. After reading it, I know somebody at OSU did something wrong, but I am not sure what it is. I have a hunch this is the most detail we will hear in public about this issue.
