It doesn't seem fair. Michigan needed a coach and a couple big names and not so big names turn them down. They get all the way down the list to a slow talking, fat guy with a losing record, but go with him because he's from Ohio and maybe he can be the next Bo. I think this Ohio guy will end up being more of a Gary Moeller...less of a drinker but more of an eater.
Ohio State needed a coach and got an immediate yes from a coach who all the experts had rated the number 1 or 2 college coach in the nation.
I hated how all year the sports media people kept saying how great this rivalry was going to be with now that Urban is here and both school now have great coaches. WTF??? What a false equivalency! Don't let Hoke get lumped in with Urban who's won huge at every school and won multiple national titles, when he (Hoke) brought a losing record and his biggest win is against Ohio State's suspension depleted team that had more losses than any OSU team in over 100 years, and a temp coach to boot. Does anyone think Hoke beats what would have been the Tressel / Pryor lead Buckeyes last year? Yes the rivalry will continue to be great and TTUN may win a game or two but it feels great knowing that they will be facing us as big underdogs in the head coach column, at least as long as Urban is around.
