How many years does a pro-Coach get to "get there" only to lose the first or second round every time?

I could see making the Conference Championship or SB frequently and losing and being kept around, but there is obviously something 'off' in Cincy that they are not addressing. I think letting Pryor go is a sign of this.

I'm not sure I buy the argument that Tyrelle isn't "pro-material' there are plenty of QB's who haven't been or aren't but are currently starting, or are in the two-deep. A man with the sheer talent that Pryor has should be kept around just for the heck or it, even if you have to do it at the league minimum.

I think the problem is that I'm not sure all NFL teams are up too or able to actually coach or teach. Some expect a QB to come into the league and produce day 1. And you'll find most of those teams are underperforming year in and year out. But they are good at making money because they know how to budget by cutting 'investments' loose. They stay afloat because they are not willing to spend the time and money on developing players.

I always wonder whether there is any anamosity between Meyer and Tressel, or if there is any sort of relationship.

Personally, being president of a university is a great gig, but I would like to see Tressel back in some capacity at THEOsu.

I still think that Tressel would make one heckofa Athletic Director.

There is something to what your saying SL. I don't really know him personally, but I read some of the stuff he had said in the past. I also don't remember him talking up Ohio State a lot while at ESPN prior to Meyer being coach. But this just may be a misconception on my part.  

He was a good RB. My take is that if had a bit of a different attitude. He could have been one of the greats.

Welp. I've been trying to score a couple from nike.com for a couple of months. Have been out of stock since like 5 mins into the playoff week.

So either they're masochists at Nike, or they just don't know their consumers.... or just don't care.

The hit was on time, wasn't late. The way he landed on him. Well, we may question that a bit. Food for thought for the youngster. How does he want to go down in history? He'll be good, but will it include a little dirty as well?
