Suspect Urban understands all this and doesn't care.  Ironic though that the award is named after 2 coachs who would never win it nowdays (though Bo would have in his 1st year, I guess).

Also ironic that they man's name who was recently removed from another B1G honorific trophy is the reason that PSU can't win that trophy and probably the reason that their new coach won this trophy

That was much explaining without stating the obvious of "No OSU coach will win it beause they're OSU, OK?"

I'll take NC over that. Jealous mofos. :/

And they failed to mention that Tressel should have won it in 07 as well.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

Woody would have won in 54,The B1G was a little more competitive when i was a young'en.Much more of a football conference then.Everybody just wants to play basketball now,course that's the fault of TOSU being so dominant for so long.We kinda beat the want to out of 'em.Such is life on the big stage.GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Let's say Team A and Team B both go 12-0.  Team A was a preseason top 5 team.  Team B was expected to finish 8th in their conference.  Which team's coach will more likely win COY? 
This is precisely why it'll be so hard for an OSU coach to win this award.  If ever there were a year that an OSU coach could win it, this year was it.  However, that damn Penn State team just had to win 8 games after everything they went through...lol.  Oh well.  I want crystal balls.

Class of 2010.

I bet O'Brien still would have won it if they went 7-5.

LOL. Took me a minute but I got it. One upvote for you sir.

Your mom told me she wants a Dicken Cidar.

Haters gonna hate! Tressel should have won it 3-4 times but its for sad story coaches and  teams that surprise themselves, not actual good coaches.

Wherever you are, there you be!

If the criteria has to do with a coach turning his team around, then I hope UFM never wins one.

What's funny is that State Penn went from a 10 win team last year to a 8 win team this year. Yet, BoB gets the infamous Kirk Ferentz Big Ten Coach of the Year award. That makes a LOT of sense.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

To me it's ridiculous that Meyer didn't get it this year.  I dont' care what Penn State and Obrien ended up doing.  Penn State still wasn't that great of a team.  They were what a 9 win team last year.  So O'Brien basically maintained order this year.  Granted, he faced some tough odds, but Urban completely turned things around.  This team had 7 fewer losses than last year with the same players.

Well, actually, we lost 3 starting O-Lineman, top WR, and starting RB off of last year's team...so he did with a bunch of new players too on offense.

Another one of the worst analogies in sports. "This is a real David Vs. Goliath matchup!". David won. So anytime a team is referred to as David, he's the favorite not the under dog. Quit being cute, sportscasters. Get some original materal.

Earle's picture

I was actually referring to the Wilt Chamberlain quote, but you're right, though I will note that David had some help.  Skirting the 11W ban on religious talk, but if its the Goliath and the entire Philistine army plus infinity, I'll take God and lay the points.

Snarkies gonna snark.

Brewster, that's an excellent point my friend! David did kick Goliaths ass....like it wasn't even a contest.  Goliath ran off with the mouth and David smoked him in the grill piece with a rock and dropped his goofy ass.  
VERY good point.  Seriously, the next time someone uses this in my presence I'm going to interrupt and ask: "Wait, so which team is the David?" and depending how they answer I'm going to give them a full piece of my mind on your behalf.  Good work.

Some Idiot: Man this is really a match of David versus Goliath!
OBB: So, this should be over rather quickly then?

its ridiculous bob won this award.... he merely maintained after losing to a mac team and not having the leadership to keep 12 seniors bcuz of a bowl ban... where as meyer took a 6 win team to a 12 win team, kept his seniors and lost to nobody. just another reason to play angry next year and go 14-0 and ask the sec and the haters how that tastes!

mark may wins douchebag of the year... again

Since all those Penn State wins were vacated the years Paterno won COY, they should just give those years to Tressel.

Kirk Ferentz owns priority. Sorry.

I'm actually okay with this. I rather the 12-0, the crystal balls, and the national limelight than a silly trophy named after the two best coaches out of this great university.

Fuel for the fire.  Just like coach said, he wants an angry football team, even if he has to manufacture it.
Braxton Miller not top QB? Slighted
Shazier not first team LB? Slighted
Stay angry, men.

B1G awards are the laughing stock of college football. Why the frick frack did they go with these ridiculous two person name awards? It's just so dumb.

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes

RedStorm45's picture

Isn't part of coaching recruiting? So why is OSU penalized for perceived superior talent? (Wait, the coaches said they didn't have anyone on first team offense? Crap, there goes that logic)

Doc's picture

The B1G can keep their stupid awards.  We want bigger things.  The B1G COY award is a popularity contest for the losers.  We aren't losers and Urbz could give two shits about being popular.  Beating the crap out of the rest of the B1G is reward enough.
