Interesting that Muschamp went to Auburn after not getting the Houston job(ESPN reports that he did interview for the job. Will probably make more money as DC at Auburn than the HC at Houston. The money he's owed by Florida is not affected by his new salary at Auburn. Looks like Will is going to come out alright financially on this deal. Guess the $1.6-1.8/year will help get him get over the disappointment of being fired.
Bottom line, the assistants should definitely be paid more. The athletic department budget is one of the tops in the country. The revenue generated is huge. They definitely should pay more to keep the top talent that is onboard now. I understand if we lose an assistant to take a HC job. Pay them!!!
Please, please, please let this be true!!!!!
Would rather see Narduzzi go to Pitt and weaken MSU.
I'd also like to see these become the permanent home uniform. Love the gray on the sleeves.
Have to make another post. Really several more you could add. On the O line, Boren has certainly stepped up. Urban wanted to get rid of him when he first got to OSU. Also good play from Price on the O line.
Eli Apple. Has really come on strong late in the season. Some of the open field tackles he made against Gordon on Saturday night to support the run were awesome. The opposition certainly doesn't seem to be picking on him, even though Grant is on the other side. Awesome impact for a freshman.
Hope Bama gets over confident. Don't mean to sound corny, but this OSU team just seems to be a "team of destiny." Regardless, all you can ask for is a chance, and now we have it. Would be awesome to get a win. So tired of hearing about the SEC. Hope that UFM has something up his sleeve for Saban.
Anybody know why Raekwon changed his number from 5 to 2? I think he wore #2 in high school, but has worn #5 all this season.
I'm going to "eat some crow" right now. I'm one who earlier this year thought it was best to bring in someone else. I was at the game last night, and what a performance by the D. Fickell had an absolutely great game plan. Loading the box against the run, frequent substitutions along the D-Line and linebackers, great tackling by the secondary(even when it looked like Gordon might slop through), pretty much a shutdown by the secondary, interceptions, great D-line play, etc…..It's fair to criticize, but also important to give credit where it's due. Great job by Fickell(Ash and the other coaches) last night. Also need to give a shout out to Herman!!
Nice to have him on board. He comes from good pedigree. Maybe not the Mannings or Matthews, but his dad was a good OL an Notre Dame. His uncle played many years on the DL for the Jaguars and Packers. I hope Warriner stays and "coaches him up."
Would definitely be a big loss for us. I hope that Urban has a good replacement in mind. Warriner had done a tremendous job, and will be sorely missed. You build from the inside out, and the O line development has been great. He's also a tremendous recruiter. Wish Kansas would go find another Charlie Weis and leave Big Ed alone.
Hope he takes Fickell with him.
I like the idea of going deep early. Cardale's going to have a lot of adrenaline flowing. Don't want him to throw high on an intermediate route. That or some screens or short routes to get his timing and confidence. As has been said before, he doesn't have to win the game himself. Let EZE run the ball, some jet sweep action to Jalin, etc....He's got playmakers. Go bucks!!!
Yawn!! Snooze!!! Great way to put the Nebraska faithful to sleep. They're probably really ticked off that they didn't get Frost.
What a surprise!!! Never would have figured. What number are we up to now?
Jalyn Holmes now 3rd on depth chart.
Looks like Auburn is going to hire Muschamp: http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/11960622/auburn-tigers-dismiss-defensive-coordinator-ellis-johnson-day-loss-alabama-crimson-tide
Time for OSU to be aggressive and go get Pellini as the new defensive coordinator.
Reports that Auburn is hiring Muschamp as DC: http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/11960622/auburn-tigers-dismiss-defensive-coordinator-ellis-johnson-day-loss-alabama-crimson-tide
Wish we'd hire Pellini as DC!!!!!
JT is unbelievable. Just hope everything heals well for him. Hopefully, only better things for him in the future!!! Great guy. Hope to see him rooting us on to a victory next Saturday in Indy.
Kalis and Lewan are 2 birds of a feather.
Wonder how Jordan Hicks is enjoying the losing at Texas? Probably okay since Texas got a nice job for his mom.
Can't stand that piece of garbage Kalis. Always getting a late push or something after the whistle. He probably would have been fine at OSU with Warriner coaching him up. HIs loss. Hope he's enjoying the losing!!!
I also would love to see him become our new Defensive Coordinator.
Fickell must have some good photos of the higher ups to keep his job
