For serious though: go Tom! The meteoric rise continues. Remember when we plucked him out of Iowa St. and the general consensus was 'Huh?' I figure we'll be lucky to get a decade of Urban before he just burns out from being too intense and awesome. Meanwhile, Herman will parlay three years of Houston success into three years of some Power 5 HC job and then comes back home to Columbus to lead the good guys into the 2020s. See you in a few, Coach!

Oh Karma, you dog you.

Act like you been there. My wife is a Kansas fan, so I watched the Jayhawks vs. another OSU last night. You have a team in KU. Which has already won a 10th straight Big 12 title outright, and an Ok. St. team that has underperformed so wildly with a returning Marcus Smart that they rush the court after that W? It's pathetic. I suppose PSU has so few instances where they can actually do it that they've got to get their kicks in while they can, but color me unimpressed. There are a very few instances where it's warranted; I hope Buckeye fans don't sink down to this level of 'we beat a team that is ranked higher than us in this week's poll, we should storm the court' mediocrity.

Nor should there be. Everybody knows the stats from the WRs in the big two Ls. After Philly, there was nothing. We need guys to step up on the big stage. OSU has a proud tradition of WR excellence -- before that sick line-up in 2005 we had Terry Glenn and Joey Galloway and David Boston -- and that's just recently! Don't start nothing, won't BE nothing.

I don't care who it is. Someone get the Browns right. The Factory of Sadness is me on Sundays in the fall.

A couple years ago we hired some no-name I-AA coach named Tressel. It has far less to do with name than it does the track record of success.

I was gonna make this same point, and then I saw it, so I'll second it. Imagine you're a Tony Brown, for instance, and you have Nick Saban and Bama, and Les Miles and LSU, and Mack Brown and Texas, and Urban Meyer and OSU coming hard after you, guys you watched win title after title as you were growing up, and now they want YOU to come play for them. They tell you that you're gonna be just like ________ who won championships and was drafted in the first round. Then you pick the lucky one, and that guy is psyched to have you and the others are sincerely bummed out.

The unique players, the real stars, are the ones who are able to wipe the slate clean (I think we have one in Kwon, btw) and say I'm ready to earn everything I want. Think about how many kids play HS football vs D1 college ball vs NFL ball. Most just don't have that mindset.

I'm getting shades of old Bill Clinton SNL at McDonald's:

'Donuts for students? Intercepted by Warlords!'

I agree on Saine -- it became obvious at the end that there were things that he did well, but he wasn't given the ball in the right instances until it was too late. I'll say this about him, though: had no wiggle. He had straightline speed for miles, but put something in his way and he was pretty helpless. For a big dude, I feel like I could count his broken tackles on one hand.
