Ketchum is also the owner/publisher of Orange Bloods.com, a Texas Longhorn site, on the Rivals Network. He does a daily radio show on Yahoo Sports radio from 5:00 to 7:00 pm., which he calls "Hit em Up". Day in and day out, it is usually a pretty good listen, IMO, on my way home from work. Today, at 6:00 he did a segment on Urban Meyer and Ohio State................... saying "Urban took the wrong job, when he went to OSU, and he knows it".
He laid out a few hypothetical situations and also forecast Ohio State as a team that has no shot of winning the BCS NC for the 2013 season, which has to be taken with a grain of salt, but the conversation does bring up some interesting things to contemplate. Ketchum states: the Big 10 is horrible, Ohio State's brand doesn't hold the same weight it did 5 years ago, the 2013 OSU Buckeyes are more on par with teams such as Stanford, Baylor and Miami, but would get rolled by Oregon, FSU and 'Bama (rolls eyes, I know).
the points of Urban leaving Ohio State to coach somewhere else were as followed:
Meyer has coached OSU to a 20 game win streak, which is top notch, but he is at a school that has lost respect, and must rely on someone else to lose to get a chance to play the "Big Boys". None cares about an Ohio State team that will probably reach a 30 game win streak, therefore nobody cares about Urban Meyer. He says Urban isn't the kind of guy that wants to coach somewhere, perfectly, and have nobody care about him or have no shot to win a National Championship.
If OSU does sneak into the BCS NC Game and then gets steam rolled by a 'Bama, Florida State or Oregon, OSU will lose further credit, and won't get another Championship shot for maybe another 10 years, no matter how many games they win in a row, in the weak Big 10.
He states that while Urban, being from Ohio, claims that OSU is his dream job, deep down, every professional's dream is to compete at their profession's highest level, and right now OSU/Big10 isn't providing Urban that chance.
Ketchum, Being a Longhorn, probably thinks Texas and the Big 12 is a better landing spot for Urban, once Mack goes bye bye.
