First, I think it's rather accepted at this point that Ohio State will hire a new coach next year. Urban Meyer is the #1 candidate - in the minds of pundits and fans, but who else out there is a possibility? He may take the Penn State job or possibly stay with ESPN. Even then, who knows if he has the health to be a head coach again. I like Dantonio, but I don't know that he will ever get a team over the top. Don't even get me started on Beckman and his non-existent defense. Bo Pelini is a nut-job who shouldn't represent any universtiy, especially one as visible as OSU. So, who else is out there?
Second, regardless of the HC job next year, what happens with the offense? Where will they look for an offensive system? It seems most of the best offensive systems have been proven to either not work in the B1G or are already at BCS schools. I like what Boise State does, but their OC already left for Texas this season. Do we really want anything related to the air-rade from the Mike Leach tree? I certainly don't want anything Oregon has to offer. Which direction should OSU go on the offensive side of the ball, regardless of who's in the HC spot?
