I promise this isn't trolling. I read the site often and I enjoy the view from the other side. I live in Portland and am friends with a good dozen OSU grads who are devout football fans. We watch the game together every year, and I have had to buy a lot of beers over the last decade. They go back every year for at least one game, and often travel to the bowls.
When OSU hired Urban, they were cautious and considered him beneath Buckeye standards despite his initial OSU success, his historic success and his pedigree. Then after last year, I asked many of them if they were on board again. They smirked, shook their heads and said, "I don't trust him."
So, my question is: Are there many others who feel this way? Obviously I don't see it here very often, and I imagine they're in the minority, but I'm curious if you run into Buckeyes who are still hesitant about the hire. If so, why?
Serously, I ask because I'm curious. Thanks.
