PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
So does TTU look at Herman? He has those Texas ties
Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite
Thinking Kliff Kingsbury.
You think he's ready for it?

Well that makes recruiting in Ohio a little more of a challenge than it has been.
Do you think? Tuberville strikes me as a guy who's best years are behind him. He probably never should have been fired by Auburn, but he was so that sort of put a black cloud over him. Then his antics at TT didn't make him look any better. I would say going to Cincinnati is a lateral move at best and he's coming to an area which (I think), he doesn't have that much experience recruiting in. And I don't see recruits lining up to play for Tubervile. I could be wrong, but I don't see this as having any impact on recruiting for OSU. Now if we play Cincy in the future, that's a different story. He's still a decent coach. He's just sort of an a-hole.
Tuberville's stock has fallen a good deal from where it was when he had a great Auburn team...he's a few games over .500 since then and has had some PR issues. Butch Jones and Brian Kelly were more of a threat while at Cincy than a past-his -prime Tuberville.
Tuberville's never coached outside the South before. No way his Ohio HS recruiting approaches Urban's full-scale land war operation.
Also, he's old, the game has passed him by, and was 9-17 in BigXII play. Which is sterling.
Welp this puts a capper on a pretty weird coaching carousel.
The funny thing is that I bet Tennessee fans would be much happier if they'd hired Tuberville instead of the guy they took from Cincy.
I was thinking UC upgraded quite a bit on a coach myself. He's better than Jones.
I wonder if he will bring the Air Raid with him???
He wasn't an Air Raid guy...
He wasn't, but his offensive coaching staff ran it since he got to TxT.

They ran it at Texas Tech so I was wondering if maybe he would bring the system with him. I know he wasn't Leach or anything but sometimes coaches change their coaching philosophies mid-career. Look at Urban when he went away from the pro style offense.
Solich and Tuberville can reminesce about how they used to be relevant.
Its a good move for Cincy - there is a lot of big east level talent right in the area, can compete for BCS bowls (at least for now) and for Tbberville, no real chance of being fired. Worked with the AD at Auburn and that's why he was asked, I'm sure
Wow. Just wow. Things must be really bad in Lubbock right now...
good move for the Buckeyes, Coombs staying where he is!
The Big 12 must blow really hard to lose a coach to Cincy
